Bucky Brooks Mock Draft 1.0

1.0

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...g-4-to-pick-qb

Bucky Brooks 2019 NFL mock draft 1.0: Pats among 4 to pick QB

MOBILE, Ala. -- After a week of practices at the Reese's Senior Bowl, some NFL draft hopefuls have certainly helped themselves with their performance. However, for the top prospects in attendance, I didn't see anything here that made me re-evaluate much of what I saw on their game tape, although it did confirm some of the beliefs I already had about players like Missouri QB Drew Lock and Duke QB Daniel Jones.

Keep in mind, this mock is indicative of how I think teams view these players, and it's not necessarily a reflection of what I think they should do.

NOTE: Picks 31 and 32 won't be set until we know the Super Bowl result. The Patriots and Rams are ordered below with record as the tiebreaker.

Quote:
Nick Bosa - Edge

School: Ohio State | Year: Junior
The No. 1 overall pick is reserved for elite players with dynamic skills. Bosa fits the bill as a disruptive pass rusher with exceptional hands and technical skills.


Josh Allen - Edge

School: Kentucky | Year: Senior
Allen would give the 49ers an explosive edge rusher with outstanding first-step quickness and burst.


Quinnen Williams - DT

School: Alabama | Year: Sophomore (RS)
Taking the "BPA" (best player available) has worked out for the Jets under general manager Mike Maccagnan. Williams is a dominant force who would fit nicely beside Leonard Williams on the inside.


Rashan Gary - Edge

School: Michigan | Year: Junior
The Raiders desperately need a blue-chip defender on the front line to harass the prolific passers in the AFC West. Gary is a better athlete than playmaker at this point, but his arrival should boost a pass rush that netted a league-low 13 sacks in 2018.


Devin White - LB

School: LSU | Year: Junior
White's speed, athleticism and playmaking ability would add a dimension to a Bucs defense that struggled to defend the run and pass over the middle.


Dwayne Haskins - QB

School: Ohio State | Year: Sophomore (RS)
It's time for the Giants to finally address their QB situation after watching Eli Manning's limitations stifle an offense loaded with playmakers.


Drew Lock - QB

School: Missouri | Year: Senior
The Jaguars pulled the plug on Blake Bortles as their QB1 in November, and it's time to go in a different direction at the position. Lock is an A+ talent with a high ceiling in the right environment.


Clelin Ferrell - Edge

School: Clemson | Year: Junior (RS)
Coach Matt Patricia needs a dynamic edge rusher to wreak havoc off the edge in a division loaded with premier quarterbacks.


Jawaan Taylor - OT

School: Florida | Year: Junior
Head coach Sean McDermott and GM Brandon Beane must upgrade the supporting cast around Josh Allen to help their young franchise quarterback thrive. Taylor would help an offensive line that surrendered 41 sacks in 2018.


Greedy Williams - CB

School: LSU | Year: Sophomore (RS)
New head coach Vic Fangio will focus his efforts on fixing a defense that was a mild disappointment in 2018. Williams is a plug-and-play corner with the ball skills and instincts to emerge as a ballhawk early in his career.


Cody Ford - OT

School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior (RS)
If Zac Taylor takes over as the team's head coach -- my colleague Ian Rapoport reported he's the favorite for the job -- the Bengals could go all in on re-tooling their offense on draft day. Ford would give the Bengals a sturdy blocker to add to a front line that needs more physicality and toughness.


Jachai Polite - Edge

School: Florida | Year: Junior
The gradual decline of Clay Matthews as a pass rusher could prompt the Packers to add an explosive athlete to the lineup. Polite isn't a polished rusher at this point, but his first-step quickness and closing burst could allow him to be a difference-maker as a rookie.


Jaylon Ferguson - Edge

School: Louisiana Tech | Year: Senior (RS)
The FBS all-time sack leader (45) would fit nicely as a productive pass rusher with a variety of moves at his disposal.


Ed Oliver - DT

School: Houston | Year: Junior
The Houston standout is the urgent athlete Dan Quinn covets on his defense. Despite missing some time in his final collegiate season due to injury, Oliver's disruptive potential makes him a worthy possibility for this pick.


Daniel Jones - QB

School: Duke | Year: Junior (RS)
The uncertainty surrounding Alex Smith and his return from injury could force the Redskins to jump into the quarterback market on draft day. Jones is a big, athletic playmaker with enough arm strength and mobility to make plays inside and outside of the pocket.


Montez Sweat - Edge

School: Mississippi State | Year: Senior
The Panthers need to find a young edge defender, with Julius Peppers -- who recently turned 39 -- due to become a free agent. Sweat is an explosive athlete with the speed and quickness to consistently record 10-plus sacks in the NFL.

Jonah Williams - OT

School: Alabama | Year: Junior
GM John Dorsey is committed to improving the cast around Baker Mayfield to help the young QB1 evolve as a playmaker. Williams is a steady player capable of snuffing out pass rushers on the edge and burying defenders in the run game.


Andre Dillard - OT

School: Washington State | Year: Senior (RS)
After watching Kirk Cousins take a beating in 2018, the Vikings will make upgrading the offensive line a top priority. Dillard is arguably the most polished pass protector in the draft, with superb footwork and technique defining his game.


Christian Wilkins - DT

School: Clemson | Year: Senior
Mike Vrabel needs another playmaker up front to help the Titans generate more sacks and pressures.


Byron Murphy - CB

School: Washington | Year: Sophomore (RS)
GM Kevin Colbert and coach Mike Tomlin must continue to throw resources at the secondary to shore up a unit that fails to create turnovers. Murphy is a five-star cover corner with outstanding ball skills and tackling ability.


Deionte Thompson - S

School: Alabama | Year: Junior (RS)
With Earl Thomas expected to depart as a free agent, the Seahawks could look to bolster the secondary with a hard-hitting safety who offers range, instincts and thump.


D.K. Metcalf - WR

School: Mississippi | Year: Sophomore (RS)
The Ravens place their focus on building the offense around Lamar Jackson, adding an explosive playmaker on the perimeter.


Noah Fant - TE

School: Iowa | Year: Junior
The Texans need to fix their offensive line -- but in the meantime, adding a dynamic weapon at TE will only help Deshaun Watson continue to grow as a QB1.


Kelvin Harmon - WR

School: N.C. State | Year: Junior
Jon Gruden needs to find a new No. 1 receiver after swapping Amari Cooper for a first-round pick at midseason. Harmon is a big, athletic pass catcher with big-play potential.


Dexter Lawrence - DT

School: Clemson | Year: Junior
The Eagles have joined the ranks of the NFL elite by investing heavily in the offensive and defensive lines. Lawrence is a rugged nose tackle with the size and strength to erase runs between the guards while also collapsing the pocket with bull rushes on passing downs.


N'Keal Harry - WR

School: Arizona State | Year: Junior
The big-bodied pass catcher from Arizona State would be an ideal fit as a WR2 opposite T.Y. Hilton.


Jeffery Simmons - DT

School: Mississippi State | Year: Junior
Adding another disruptive defender is on the to-do list for the Raiders after the Khalil Mack trade. Simmons is a rock-solid defensive tackle with excellent run-stopping ability.


Dre'Mont Jones - DT

School: Ohio State | Year: Junior (RS)
Beefing up the interior is a priority for the Bolts, with age and free agency creeping up on their starters at the position. Jones has the size and athleticism to create chaos in the middle.


Deandre Baker - CB

School: Georgia | Year: Senior
The Chiefs desperately need to add a big cover corner to match up with the dynamic WRs who dominate the AFC West.


T.J. Hockenson - TE

School: Iowa | Year: Sophomore (RS)
New head coach Matt LaFleur could begin the Packers' offensive makeover by adding a true "Y" to the lineup to control the middle of the field in the passing game and seal the edges on running plays.


Kyler Murray - QB

School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior (RS)
Tom Brady can't play forever. Murray would serve as an apprentice before taking over as a dynamic QB1 for the Patriots after Brady decides to step away from the game.


Devin Bush - LB

School: Michigan | Year: Junior
Despite making it to Super Bowl LIII, the Rams could still use some reinforcements at linebacker. Bush is a little undersized, but he's a sideline-to-sideline playmaker with outstanding instincts and a nose for the ball.

If Fant were there, I think you'd have to consider it. He has the potential to be great. There's really no gaps in his game. He's long, runs good routes, blocks well, he's a prototypical TE.

That being said, I really want a DB in the first. Adderley is my pick but I like Baker a lot too.

Regarding Fant specifically, I'm not sure he's even my favorite TE from Iowa this year. Hockenson has a higher ceiling, IMO. Fant may be more likely to become a Kelce sort of player; mostly a gigantic WR, but Hockenson could end up being a far better in-line TE and thus a way better fit with Kelce already in the fold.

It's funny how fast the top end of the TE class developed in this draft. Smith, Fant and Hockenson are all guys who could easily be 1st round picks. Albert O staying at Mizzou another year suddenly makes a lot more sense to me coming off his injury (and had he not gotten hurt, I think there would've been 4 legit potential 1st round TEs in this class).
Hockenson just doesn't have the overall pedigree, particularly measurables, that Fant has. Hockenson is a dynamic player but he's more of an H-back. Fant has the ability to be Travis Kelce.

For this team, Hockenson might make more sense as a complimentary piece but if you want a complete, top-tier tight end for the next 10 years, one that can do everything well, that guy is Noah Fant IMO.

I'm at the point where I don't really care who it is, as long as it's a good player and not some crazy project.

Ideally it's a CB or a LB'er or safety. But if some top of the line prospect falls because other teams are stupid, pounce on him.

I don't really want to see them take an ILB early. And definitely not on board with spending high picks on offensive line or RB.

Other than that, I'm down for about anything. Would could use DL, DE, LB, S, CB, WR, TE in about any combination.

I'd be good with an ILB because I think that's the premium spot on defenses these days in order for the d to be good.

They have a pretty big cap hit wrapped up in Hitchens though and I think he plays inside.

Maybe

But I'd prefer to see him and DOD outside with a draft pick inside.

Hitchens played outside in college for most of his snaps. MLB was his fill-in, even in Dallas.

Yeah, I just don't know about having him inside. I'd prefer him outside but with that him and DOD are a bit redundant so they're probably putting Hitch inside.

See I view Fant as more of the H-back type and Hockenson as a far better long-term blocker and in-line player.

I'd take Irv Smith over either of them though...

I watched the AFCCG again and I really think if we had Kareem Hunt, we would have scored in the first half. Patriots didn’t care about our rushing attack bc it want good. I like Damien Williams, but he’s best suited as a 3rd down back.

Think we all agree that the focus is helping our pieces around Mahomes. I think those pieces should revolve around stopping the run and running the ball.

Doubtful it happens, but I would definitely consider Josh Jacobs at 29 assuming that the board is bare bc all of the defensive players we want are gone.

I wouldn't take him there even if everyone was gone. It's just not valuable enough.

I think Williams is a good RB option, screen game, etc. But he's not really a tackle breaking dude like Hunt was. They need that.

We have other slammer possibilities named Williams already on the roster. If they spend a high draft pick on a RB, that's just dumb. This team has needs at every level of the defense, WR, and offensive line before they should even think about another RB. They're a dime a dozen.

Yeah, if you want to take one in the 3rd or something, have at it. It's just not worth that high of a pick I don't think.

It seems teams take one high thinking he's the last piece but it just allows other holes to open up.

RB is exactly the kind of position you target a little later at this point since the position has become devalued.

I mean if Saquon or his ilk falls then you're looking at a guy who's such a screaming bargain that you take him. But even when RBs were considered high-end commodities, a player like Jacobs wouldn't go more than a few picks higher than he's likely going to go now. Maybe he goes in the high teens/early 20s if this draft were done 15 years ago?

Taking him a few picks after where he'd go at 'peak value' isn't a significant enough adjustment, IMO. Maybe I'm just wrong on his value - maybe he's a top 5-10 guy when RBs were still as highly sought after and that the only reason he'd fall to us in the late 20s would be the market adjusting so we should take him to try to stay ahead of the market. But what I see there is an upright runner with above average but not elite speed and solid but unspectacular lateral agility. His hands are...fine, his acceleration is good but not great. He's a very well rounded big back and those are nice guys to have but on this team at this time I just can't see a desperate need for that skill set. Honestly...I kinda see Fournette in him and that's just not been a recipe for success of late.

I just don't think he alters the team's trajectory significantly.
