Kevin Hanson's 2019 NFL Mock Draft- Updated: Friday, March 1st
|The Huddle Report tracks NFL Mock Draft Accuracy and EDSFootball's Kevin Hanson is tied for 1st in accuracy among experts tracked over the past five years. In addition, his 2015 NFL mock was the most accurate among the 113 tracked that year.|
Predicting how a draft will play out minutes before it begins is virtually impossible so naturally it's even more difficult almost two months out.
Over the next couple of months, the one certainty is that this 2019 NFL mock draft will change -- perhaps considerably -- with the NFL Scouting Combine coming up this weekend and both Pro Days and the start of NFL Free Agency still ahead of us.
As we move closer to the actual draft, we will add rounds to eventually mock all seven rounds.
For now, here's how the first round of the 2019 NFL draft could play out:
1. Arizona Cardinals (Draft History): Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State Buckeyes
Past comments from new head coach Kliff Kingsbury may lead some to link Kyler Murray to the Cardinals, but it's too soon to throw in the towel on the Josh Rosen era. More than likely, this pick comes down to Bosa, Kentucky's Josh Allen or Alabama's Quinnen Williams. Per PFF College, no edge defender had a higher grade in their history (since 2014) than Bosa did in 2017. With first-round pedigree from his father (John) and brother (Joey), Nick gives the talent-deficient Cardinals a blue-chip prospect.
2. San Francisco 49ers (Draft History): Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky Wildcats
Speaking of PFF grades, Allen tied for the third-highest amongst edge rushers (from 2014-2018) as he recorded 17 sacks, 21.5 tackles for loss and five forced fumbles in 2018. As many high picks as the 49ers have spent on their front seven over the past few seasons, edge rusher remains the team's biggest need.
3. (Projected trade with NYJ) Jacksonville Jaguars (Draft History): Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma Sooners
Except for the 2013 NFL Draft (the Jags took Luke Joeckel second overall that year), there has been a quarterback selected in the top three in 17 of the other 18 NFL Drafts from 2001 to 2018. By trading up to third overall last year (for quarterback Sam Darnold), the Jets should be a willing trade partner for a QB-needy team. Perhaps the Jags will sign Nick Foles in free agency, but if that doesn't happen, the Jags will likely look to replace Blake Bortles with their 2019 first-round pick.

4. Oakland Raiders (Draft History): Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama Crimson Tide
Perhaps the Raiders use this pick to move on from Derek Carr, but this is an ideal scenario with Williams, a top-two prospect in this year's draft class, slipping to fourth overall.
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Draft History): Rashan Gary, DL, Michigan Wolverines
More projection than production, the former No. 1 high school recruit in the country has rare athletic gifts with sky-high upside.
