First (Early) 2019 Mock Draft

Recommended Posts

R1 - Jeffrey Simmons, DL, Mississippi St. - A dynamic prospect who shows strong against the run and the rare ability to provide a pass rush from the inside. Our scheme in particular will be given a major boost by having a dominant DT. 

 

R2 - Kelvin Harmon, WR, North Carolina St. - A big possession receiver who has good hands and NFL athleticism. He could fight for the #2 WR role on our roster immediately. 

 

R2 - Trey Adams, OL, Washington - He’s a top 15 pick if healthy. Adams has a rare blend of size and athleticism. His technique is pretty good and he's nearly impossible to bull rush. He comes with some durability concerns but immense talent. 

 

R3 - Khalil Hodge, LB, Buffalo - Another balanced linebacker who can cover the run or the pass to add to our lineup. He could push for a starting position role early, in addition to our good young talent.

 

R4 - Alijah Holder, CB, Stanford - A cornerback with good length and ball skills. There were some medical concerns with him, but so far he’s looked to have fully recovered, this year. 

 

R4 - Yodny Cajuste, OL, West Virginia - An athletic tackle who could use a bit of refinement. He’s got adequate, but not overwhelming length. His foot speed and strength are tremendous. 

 

R5 - Derrick Baity, CB, Kentucky - A lengthy cornerback who’s had a solid college career in the SEC.  He’s had a lot of passes defended over his career, and the desired height that will help with defend taller receivers. 

 

R6 - Ryan Bee, Edge/DL, Marshall - He’s been used a lot inside and even as a nose tackle, but has found ways to create sacks nonetheless. His frame is more of a DE frame, and he could be another outside/inside rusher that our scheme tends to like to stock a few of. 

 

R7 - Matt Gay, K, Utah - If our kicker finally feels like retiring, here’s a good replacement option for him.

 

Overview:

 

O-line:  I've added 2 tackles, as I think we're all set with the guys we have in the middle. We've seen how thin we are at the position this year when Castonzo is out. Speaking of Castonzo, 2019 will be a contract year for him and he'll be 31. Adams would be fairly likely to start at RT as a rookie (if he had overcome the health issues) and Cajuste would be waiting in the wings as a potential starter or swing tackle in the future. I'd still think of Haeg as the swing tackle after this mock for 2019. 

 

D-line: Adding an elite defensive tackle is the goal. You never know, because some draft picks bust but Simmons looks good... Good enough that he might be that kind of guy. Ryan Bee is a nice late round prospect who could provide rotational value.  We have Tyquan Lewis coming back, and with DEs Jabaal Sheard, Denacio Autry, and Kemoko Turay I'm okay with mostly focusing on creating more interior strength in our front 4. 

 

Linebacker: I finally like a lot of what we've done here. Darius Leonard has looked good so far, and Anthony Walker is off to a solid start. I think Skai Moore is at least a very nice rotational guy. But I still think adding one more in Hodge (the best Khalil out of Buffalo since Mack) could carry lots of bang for the buck of a 3rd round pick. 

 

Secondary: I don't think it's that desperate a situation, so while I addressed it, I didn't do so on the first 2 days. That said, I really like a couple of the CBs that are eligible this year (like DeAndre Baker for one). I think an improved defensive front will help our secondary, which is already performing surprisingly well so far in 2018. So I've added 2 guys with length who are used to playing at a high competition level in college. As for safety, I've added a depth player at the position. 


Wide Receiver: We are pretty thin here these days. Behind T.Y. Hilton, nobody has really separated themselves. With promising rookie Deon Cain coming back, and the addition of a guy like Harmon, I think our WR group will be looking better after this mock.

I only know 3 of the names on your list which are Simmons, Hodge, and Adams. All good picks btw. I’ll have to research the others though. But good job.

This draft is deep at the DL spot, so I might be tempted to think we go OT first before DL on day 2. Otherwise, this draft looks very good.

 

I also hope Ballard trades one of his 2nd rounders to Philly for their later 2nd rounder and a 3rd thus giving us two 2nd rounders and two 3rd rounders??? :thmup:

I really hope the Colts go either RT or WR with within the first two rounds. I'll even accept another CB or defensive linemen.

I doubt we'd pick up Simmons he's very good but has a Joe Mixon like video out and I bet he falls because of it.

Way too early but its fun to play

 

I agree with your points

 

I think Jones from Ohio State will be available when we pick in round one

 

I would also think VERY hard about giving BOTH 2nd round picks up to move BACK into round one...... IF and only IF one of the top 3 tackles slid a bit

 

If we came out of this draft with a disrupter in the middle of the defensive line and someone who could come in and immediately started at RT.... I would be a HAPPY camper

 

We still need a playmaker safety to make this defense tick. I would be all into the Giants Collins

 

I would also overpay for 3 years of service from the well rested Leveon Bell

 

I think Turay is going to be our RE of the future at WSDE.......

 

I think Sheard is a talent on SSDE

 

With some luck (Just a year of limited injuries, Good Lord)

And some prudent pickups.........

 

This could be a very good team next year.........

 

In my dreams (prolly NOT gonna happen)

 

Collins at Safety

Bell at RB

 

One of the 3 OTs 

Jones DT from Ohio State

Best CB, WR, SSLB, S, available with picks

3,4,5,6

Which 3 OTs are you thinking? There's some speculation that Adams may go back for a 5th year. I know there's first round buzz on Jonah Williams, Greg Little, and David Edwards - are those the 3 names or are there others?

I’ve only really seen Williams as a guaranteed 1st rounder.

Of course nothing is guaranteed

 

And of course..... too early

 

OTs that COULD be drafted in round 1

 

Williams

Little

Adams

Edwards

Risner

 

ALL of them could play RT, year one, I also think that they would be an upgrade over current situation

 

Maybe 3 of 5 could develop into a LT.

 

So...........  disrupter in the middle......  on defense

AND RT (that might take over for AC later)

 

If we somehow came up with the combination of these 2, then have rounds 3-5 to add 

to CB, S, WR, RB........ I would be very happy

Edwards could develop into a LT. He’s got the size, length, and athleticism. Little maybe but he’s just so raw and lacks the toughness.

    • I went ahead and submitted the trade.
    • Unless things starts to get better and we go on a win streak, which at the moment isn't likely, though we have a pretty "easy" schedule for the rest of the season.    There is one thing we could hope for this, besides a miracle, is to finish with a worse record than the Giants, and pick before them in the 2019 draft.   Why?   They need a QB to replace Eli.  Other teams that could be interested in a QB would be Denver Broncos,  maybe the Oakland Raiders and possibly Jacksonville Jaguars and Tampa Bay.   As of right now, only Justin Herbert - QB from Oregon and Drew Lock from Missouri are valued as potential 1st round picks, which makes this draft very thin for the QB class.   So by finishing worse than the Giants, the Colts could sit with a strong hand come draft time, IF - and that's a big IF, two teams would wan't to go into a bidding war for Justin Herbert and make a trade to get him.   Of course I wan't the colts to win, and win now, but I'd rather have a top pick, and preferably more picks than finish with a better record, say 5-11 or 6-10 and sit at a position in the draft, where we have no leverage in a possible trade scenario.    The Giants will be the one team to watch, compared to our own record this season, If such a scenario should play out.   Regarding the Raiders, Broncos and Jaguars, I'm not sure they would necessarily pick a QB as the Giants would, If they were to finish with a worse record than us, and I don't think that either of the Broncos and Jaguars will finish below the Colts.   Yes it's early and still 10 games to go, but whats your take on this?  
    • Pretty confident, Anderson will look like, Brady this week.   whether we win or not is another story.......   cant wait for the game though, go Colts!!
    • Going against Geno Atkins, Carlos Dunlap, Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, J.J. Watt... Not bad at all. Even Clark, Haeg, Slauson held their own against such competition.
    • If you're in the final three,  we made an offer.     It's not like only three teams showed any interest.    Norwell didn't visit either the Giants or the 49ers.     His agent took offers from teams that showed interest.    The only team he went to was the one whose offer he accepted.   Since we made an offer to Jensen and he signed for nearly $11 Mill per year,  there's no reason to think we didn't make an offer to Norwell.       One last thought.....   Jensen came to Indy for a visit...   typically a signal we're going to sign the player.    And yet,  he left without a deal.    He went to Tampa and eventually signed there.   I don't "The Visit" is something that's written in stone in order for Ballard to sign a player...     if Norwell agreed to terms,  then he would've come to sign his deal as he did with Jacksonville...    without a visit ahead of time.
