2019 NFL Draft – Round One

Results of the First Round in the 2019 NFL Draft…. in case you missed it…

Round 1 Pick 1. Arizona Cardinals: Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma. The 2018 Heisman Trophy Winner, Murray has the NFL dream arm, great skill-sets in the pocket, has a quick release in RPO situations, small, fast and elusive. And he likes baseball.

Round 1 Pick 2. San Francisco 49ers: Nick Bosa; DE Ohio State University.  Touted as being one of the top two players in the draft, despite missing most of the 2018 college season with a groin injury.  A pass rushing phenom coming from a family of pass rushers.

Round 1 Pick 3. New York #Jets: Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama.  The Outland Trophy winner last year is a top defensive lineman in this class. Despite having 2 years at Alabama, people feel he could be Pro Bowl level very soon.

Round 1 Pick 4. Oakland #Raiders: Clelin Ferrell, DE Clemson This elite pass rusher accrued many accolades during his college career. With his athletic ability, he’s for sure looking to achieve great things at the next level.

Round 1 Pick 5. Tampa Bay #Buccaneers: Devin White, ILB, LSU’s first Butkus award winner, and a sophomore captain. White is an athletic, sideline to sideline type of player, who is looking to wreak havoc at the NFL level.

Round 1 Pick 6. New York #Giants: Daniel Jones, a QB from Duke who is being compared with both Peyton and Eli Manning, only because of Coach David Cutcliffe.  In 2018, Jones started in 11 games and threw for 2674 yds, 22 TDs, and 9 INTs.

Round 1 Pick 7. Jacksonville #Jaguars: Josh Allen, OLB/DE Kentucky.  This elite pass rusher out of Kentucky didn’t miss a single game in his collegiate career.  His speed and quickness make him almost a perfect addition to the #Jags defense.

Round 1 Pick 8. Detroit #Lions: T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa. Travis Kelce, Rob Gronkowski, are just some of the players this Iowa TE has been compared to. A great blocking and offensive tight end, he will be a great asset. Stafford is going to LOVE this guy!

Round 1 Pick 9. Buffalo #Bills: Ed Oliver, DT/DE Houston.  Another top defensive prospect, Oliver had over 190 tackles in college, with over 120 solo tackles. He’s been compared to Aaron Donald and sure to help a team’s interior defensive line.

Round 1 Pick 10. Pittsburgh #Steelers: Devin Bush, ILB, Michigan, 5’11”, 234lbs. Outstanding combination of speed, intensity, & physicality. Noted to have great footwork and burst. Serious & studious, takes the game seriously. Son of former NFL defensive back Devin Bush Sr. (from Denver #Broncos)

Round 1 Pick 11. Cincinnati #Bengals: Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama: A true plug-and-play tackle with ideal athleticism. A menace to edge rushers. Has one of the best pass and run blocking efficiencies in the draft.

Round 1 Pick 12. Green Bay #Packers: Rashan Gary, DT, Michigan.  A versatile player, who some feel is overrated, but he got the job done at Michigan as part of one of the best defenses in college. He’s excited to show what he can do in the pros.

Round 1 Pick 13. Miami #Dolphins: Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson: Wilkins finished with the 2nd highest pressure percentage among this year’s interior defenders. Great talent, leadership, versatility, production, and athleticism.

Round 1 Pick 14. Atlanta #Falcons: Chris Lindstrom, G, Boston College. Elite athletic ability and initial quickness; will thrive as move blocker and in space, has lateral speed to make reach blocks and second-level cut-offs however he has short arms and lacks traits for consistent block finishes.

Round 1 Pick 15. Washington #Redskins: Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State. Groomed for this position as a youngster. He is confident in the pocket, effortless throwing motion and mobile in the pocket with a high football IQ.

Round 1 Pick 16. Carolina #Panthers: Brian Burns, DE/OLB, Florida State, 6’4”, 249lbs, Very athletic and with natural pass rush ability. Had 10 sacks and 15.5 TFL in 2018. Had a great combine, running the 40-yard dash in 4.53.

Round 1 Pick 17. New York #Giants: Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson: Massive lineman who gets double teamed often, can play in any scheme. A real run-stop guy with the ability to disengage single blocks at will. (from Cleveland #Browns in Odell Beckham Jr. trade)

Round 1 Pick 18. Minnesota #Vikings: Garrett Bradbury is a Center from NC State. As a senior, the full-time starter won the Rimington Trophy as the nation’s top center and Associated Press All-American honors. He also received first-team All-ACC.

Round 1 Pick 19. Tennessee #Titans: Jeffery Simmons, DT, Mississippi State. Physical tools and immense upside outweigh concerns over off-the-field issues from high school. Still recovering from a torn ACL, he may actually miss all of his Rookie Season.

Round 1 Pick 20. Denver #Broncos: Noah Fant, a TE from Iowa shortened his college career as a possible orthopedic surgeon and skipped Hawkeyes’ bowl game to prepare as an early entrant to the NFL Combine. (from Pittsburgh #Steelers)


Round 1 Pick 21. Green Bay #Packers: Darnell Savage, S, Maryland. He had 7 interceptions over the last two years, two went back for touchdowns. He earning second-team all-conference notice with four interceptions, two pass breakups, and 52 tackles his senior year. (From Seattle #Seahawks 30)

Round 1 Pick 22. Philadelphia #Eagles: Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State: A 4-yr starter at Washington has quick feet to change direction, coachable and team leader. Needs technique work against the run but overall can start day one. (from Baltimore #Ravens)

Round 1 Pick 23. Houston #Texans: Tytus Howard, OT, Alabama State. 6’5″ and 322 lbs but still ran a 5.05 forty at the Combine.. he operates with quickness & timing to thrive on the second level as run blocker and shows excellent potential as move blocker up to the second level. He’ll have to stop giving ground to edge rushers, however.

Round 1 Pick 24. Oakland #Raiders: Josh Jacobs, RB, Alabama: An absolute all-around 3-down back. Can be a threat as a receiver and downhill runner, especially in short-yardage plays. Elite in this draft class.   (from Chicago #Bears in Khalil Mack trade)

Round 1 Pick 25. Baltimore #Ravens: Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma, 5’9”, 166lbs. Considered small, but fast. Long term durability is a concern due to his size. Has been said he’s a threat on deep passes & elite run after catch talent. Cousin of Raiders WR Antonio Brown. #NFLDraft2019   (from Philadelphia #Eagles)

Round 1 Pick 26. Washington #Redskins: Montez Sweat, DE/OLB Mississippi State. Another top pass rusher in this draft class, but has some heart concerns. Despite that, he did put up a 4.41 40 at the NFL Combine, a record for defensive linemen.

Round 1 Pick 27. Oakland #Raiders:  Johnathan Abram, S, Mississippi State. 5’11” – 205 lbs. His straight-line speed to close out targets, upper-body strength for block-shuck-and-tackle finishing, fiery attitude rubs off on his teammates. He will miss some tackles when coming in too hot.  (from Dallas #Cowboys in Amari Cooper trade)

Round 1 Pick 28. Los Angeles #Chargers: Jerry Tillery, DT, Notre Dame, 6’6”, 295lbs. Started offensive tackle, switched to defense his freshman year. Had a bowl game suspension, but has earned respect as of late. 30 tackles, 10.5 for loss, 8 sacks, 3 forced fumble, 2 blocked kicks in 2018.


Round 1 Pick 29. Seattle #Seahawks: L.J. Collier, DE, TCU. Ultra-physical and competitive. Backs down from no one and plays hard every snap. Stocky build with enough strength to hold his own at the next level, but lacks ideal length and the athletic tools to project to a high ceiling in the NFL.  (from Kansas City #Chiefs in Frank Clark trade)

Round 1 Pick 30. New York #Giants: Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia: Not a speedy guy but plays well in press coverage and will battle a bigger receiver. He can sit in zone and pop up to make plays on the ball. Savvy as a mirror corner.   (from New Orleans #Saints in 2018 draft-day trade to Green Bay and then for pick 21)

Round 1 Pick 31. Atlanta #Falcons: Kaleb McGary, T, Washington. He won 2018 Morris Trophy, has the ideal NFL size at 6-foot-7 & 317 pounds, gets to second-level blocks in the run game, and has shown himself to be a powerful blocker.
