See Also: DraftGeek’s 2019 NFL Mock Draft | “Should” Mock Draft
Dawson Knox, TE, Mississippi
Knox is really flying up draft boards as people go back and watch the tape.
Emanuel Hall, WR, Missouri
Hall has been overlooked for most of the draft season, but was one of the best WR’s in the SEC
Pittsburgh Steelers (from Oakland)
Chris Slayton, DT, Syracuse
Tenacious defender that one was one of the big reasons that Syracuse emerged as a legit team last year.
New York Giants (from San Francisco)
Drew Sample, TE, Washington
The Giants have an uber-athletic TE, but need a more balanced player at that position that can do it all in terms of run and pass blocking as well.
Terrill Hanks, ILB, New Mexico State
The Giants have to do a better job against the run and need defenders that can plug holes and cover.
Cleveland Browns (from Jacksonville)
Kevin Givens, DT, Penn State
If the Browns are going to take the next step, it won’t be because of high profile free agency moves, but more so about hitting on key draft picks in the trenches.
Keegan Render, C/OG, Iowa
The Bucs need versatile interior offensive lineman. They have a tough center, but need guys that can play multiple positions.
David Sills V, WR, West Virginia
Sills is a touchdown machine, and very dependable. The Lions have 2 excellent WR’s, and added a veteran in free agency, but need to have one or two guys in the pipeline as contracts come up in the next few years.
Amani Oruwariye, CB, Penn State
Boyd had a tough Senior Bowl, but he has lots of good tape.
Martez Ivey, OG, Florida
The recent additions to their offensive line have been a disappointment. The Broncos need more competition at all O-line positions.
Joejuan Williams, CB, Vanderbilt
Williams is a bit of a sleeper prospect. The Bengals need young players in the secondary.
Terronne Prescod, OG, N.C. State
The Packers are going through a big transition, and a part of that is being tougher and more consistent in the run game. That means a bigger focus on the interior of the O-line.
Cameron Smith, ILB, USC
The Dolphins have some talent at linebacker, and have a year to add some talent to that position and see who comes out as the starters.
Kris Boyd, CB, Texas
The Falcons have to find some young guys in the secondary. The GM and head coach are desperate to make this team better defensively.
Trey Pipkins, OT, Sioux Falls
A small school prospect that can take a year or two to see what they have in him.
Byron Cowart, DE, Maryland
This is a good place in the draft for a prospect like Cowart, that has tons of talent, but comes with just as many questions.
Ross Pierschbacher, OG, Alabama
More, prospects for the O-line. Let them all compete for positions in training camp.
Denver Broncos (from Minnesota)
Will Harris, S, Boston College
Emerged as the better of the BC safety prospects, and is ready to play immediately at the next level.
Lamont Gaillard, C, Georgia
Another interior offensive line prospect to help solidify their run game.
Buffalo Bills (from Pittsburgh)
Bryce Love, RB, Stanford
A very intriguing prospect that seemed to be a lock for the first or second round when the year’s draft process started. After a really bad year, Love could be ready to have a breakout rookie season. The Bills need weapons.
Kahale Warring, TE, San Diego State
Warring is a sleeper in many mock drafts. Very intriguing prospect with a high ceiling.
Joe Giles-Harris, ILB, Duke
The Ravens have to find some young defenders that can start to take the place of some extremely talented players lost in free agency.
Tommy Sweeney, TE, Boston College
Just a reliable, consistent tight end that can contribute on special teams right away.
Myles Gaskin, RB, Washington
Gaskin can do it all. He is not elite at any particular part of the game, but just produces.
Demarcus Christmas, DT, Florida State
A tremendous anchor with some question marks, Christmas will add depth to a D-line that has gotten old.
Caleb Wilson, TE, UCLA
The Colts can start to take some chances in later rounds and need some weapons for their offense.
Rodney Anderson, RB, Oklahoma
When healthy, Anderson was an explosive back that can be used all over the offense. Would be a great new tool for their offense.
Joey Magnifico, TE, Memphis
Written off as just a blocking, one dimensional TE, Magnifico can actually catch the ball and get open. One of our favorite sleepers in this draft.
Travis Homer, RB, Miami
The Chiefs need to find their next star RB, and with their scheme, it is the ideal place for a young RB to come in and shine.
Jesse Burkett, C, Stanford
The Saints lost a center to retirement, and immediately went out to replace him. However, they need to get a young prospect in place for the long term.
Hjalte Froholdt, OG, Arkansas
A great story, this European guard is just starting to scratch the surface of his talent. Needs time to develop.
Cleveland Browns (from New England)
Ryquell Armstead, RB, Temple
A typical mid to late round prospect that, if he finds a place where he can develop, can emerge as an offensive weapon.
Felton Davis III, WR, Michigan State
Injured last year after emerging as a tremendous pass catcher. An extremely reliable WR that makes very difficult catches at the most important times in games.
Isaac Nauta, TE, Georgia
A sleeper in many mock drafts, Nauta was lost in an offense that had incredible receivers, but was almost solely focused on running the ball.
Michael Jackson, Sr, CB, Miami
The Redskins can leave this draft with a very balanced defense. They just need to hit on picks like this for the secondary.
