Simulated Mock Drafts for the 2019 NFL Draft


Recommended Posts

I think Ballard likes to double up on positions in drafts to create more competition. I also went all in on this draft this year to try to speed up the "rebuilding" process. High risk high reward. I traded our first round pick this year and our first round pick next year for Oaklands first round pick 25 and 27 and their second round pick two. 

 

25: R1P25

EDGE JACHAI POLITE- very high ceiling perfect for robert mathis to work with

FLORIDA

 

27: R1P27

DL JEFFERY SIMMONS- 3 technique with character issues can move blockers very well

MISSISSIPPI STATE

 

34: R2P2

CB DEANDRE BAKER- little smaller but great cover corner

GEORGIA

 

36: R2P4

DL DEXTER LAWRENCE- nose tackle can take up blockers stop the run and get to the quarterback. 

CLEMSON

 

51: R2P19

CB AMANI ORUWARIYE- big corner better for zone so should fit our system well

PENN STATE

82: R3P18

 

WR KELVIN HARMON- big body great awareness could be a good number 2 but we have bad luck with receivers for some reason

NC STATE

 

121: R4P19

OT KALEB MCGARY- good back up at right tackle before smith got settled in right tackle was a revolving door

WASHINGTON

 

135: R4P33

LB JOE GILES-HARRIS- good coverage linebacker should fit in great with our WLB & MLB.  Anthony Walker went down this week and you could tell he wasn't in the lineup

DUKE

 

158: R5P19

OT ISAIAH PRINCE- ballard wants ten olinemen so he is going to keep drafting them

OHIO STATE

 

193: R6P18

QB JARRETT STIDHAM- getting an option so we have an option to  trade Jacoby and get more draft capital

AUBURN

 

235: R7P19

EDGE ULYSEES GILBERT III- throwing a dart in the seventh round because i like his name

AKRON

This is my latest attempt:  I think it's a draft we could (as fans) be happy with.

 

26: R1P26

 

LB DEVIN WHITE - Imagine our LB core w/ DL, AW and DW!!

LSU

34: R2P2

 

DL DEXTER LAWRENCE - Disruptive  DL who can also rush the QB

CLEMSON

58: R2P26

 

WR N'KEAL HARRY - Big bodied WR for 50/50 balls

ARIZONA STATE

89: R3P25

 

C DALTON RISNER - Best center in draft, need a backup for if/when Kelly goes down, can also be a G

KANSAS STATE

128: R4P26

 

S DARNELL SAVAGE JR. - Backup / replacement for Geathers

MARYLAND

135: R4P33

 

RB KARAN HIGDON - Depth RB

MICHIGAN

165: R5P26

 

Honestly, don't know much about the last few picks, just got best value based on draft position

 

CB MYLES BRYANT

WASHINGTON

200: R6P25

 

EDGE MALIK REED

NEVADA

242: R7P26

 

EDGE SUTTON SMITH

NORTHERN ILLINOIS

It's too early for me to draft by player / position. A lot depends on whether we want to transition from Cover 2 to something different / diversify on defense. Pass rush and WR seem obvious - but we will need to see how FA pans out before setting draft priorities.

Pretty sure I've seen every single one of these picks, with the exception of the last one, mocked in the first round on various mocks that I've come across. So... Super realistic, lol. Here's hoping!

I ran this on FanSpeak. And while I know some of the picks are not realistic, but this is how the picks went. Based on that, what do you guys think?

Here is one more simulated mock draft. I went based on what I thought was good value at No.26 and on wards as I picked:

 

26: R1P26

EDGE MONTEZ SWEAT

34: R2P2

WR HAKEEM BUTLER

DL DONTAVIUS RUSSELL

AUBURN

 

200: R6P25

CB BLACE BROWN

242: R7P26

DL LJ COLLIER

I saw this detailed breakdown of Benny Snell and couldn't be anything but impressed as I dug deeper, he does not have much wear and tear, IMO:

This would be an excellent draft. The value at each pick is well done.

I finally decided to run a simulation on Fanspeak for the 2019 draft and ended up playing around with it for half an hour. :D

 

Here's a thread for everybody to post their own simulated mock drafts. Here's my first of the year: 

 

I don’t know how badly I would want a guy named greedy when it comes to resigning him

The thing about all of those mocks is that some of the players you have the Colts landing in the 2nd, 3rd, even 4th will be long gone before our picks in those rounds. While it would be great to land 1st-2nd round talent with the first 5 picks, it just isn't gonna happen. 

 

The more I read in columns by guys that know Ballard/Reich far greater than me, the more I believe that they won't end up taking a WR until the 3rd st the earliest. Ballard is gonna go defense early and often, and this is the perfect draft for that. I could see them landing one of the stud DL in the 1st, with all of the QBs that are likely to be selected way too early, then either Onumariye or Baker at CB with the 1st in the 2nd, then either a S or LB with the other 2nd. Ballard just hasn't ever been known to be aggresive when it comes to the WR position, and the odds of him starting now are slim. That being said, I'd love to see him take a Hakeem Butler, Kelvin Harmon, or DK Metcalf with on of our first 3 picks, but if I had to bet it won't be addressed that early. I think they have a lot of faith in the young WRs already on the roster. They see these guys day in and day out, so realistically they have more perspective than all of us armchair GMs have combined. I see them keeping Inman and hoping Fountain ir another of the young nucleus develops into a reliable #2. 

 

Hopefully they do land a Benny Snell in the middle rounds, we need a tough RB that can be used in short yardage or goal-line situations. I'm obviously a biased ND fan (sadly...thx Clemson) but would love for the Colts to add Dexter Williams from ND. He could most likely be had in the 6th round or so, and oozes with NFL RB traits. He's tough, has strong legs, and is a downhill runner; watched him break several really impressive runs this year.

Finally had some time to try my first mock of this year and I think it turned out quite well. Traded back from the top of the second to the mid-second, picking up another 3rd rounder. 

 

26: R1P26

EDGE BRIAN BURNS

FSU

 

Out of all the EDGE guys that could be there at 26, I like Burns the most, Oshane Ximenes is another guy I think would add some much needed pass rush if Burns is not there.

 

51: R2P19

OT DALTON RISNER

KANSAS STATE

 

After his strong senior bowl performance there are doubts he will be there in the mid-second, have seen him mocked from the late first to the late second. Lack of a clear position might cause him to fall a little bit (wishful thinking on my part).

 

59: R2P27

CB AMANI ORUWARIYE

PENN STATE

 

Oruwariye is a perfect fit for our scheme IMO, great ball skills, excels in zone coverage. If we want to continue playing as much zone as we did last season, this should be the pick in case we go corner early.

 

82: R3P18

WR JJ ARCEGA-WHITESIDE

STANFORD

 

I doubt Ballard takes a receiver with one of our first 2 picks, Whiteside would be good value in the third, he doesn't have the pure speed of Brown or Samuel, but is a pretty good route runner already, getting separation without top end speed and can make the contested catch consistently. I can see him being a red-zone weapon for Luck, taking some pressure off of Ebron in that regard. (Obviously Deon Cain might have to say something about that as well, but you really can't count on a guy coming off of an ACL)

 

89: R3P25

S AMANI HOOKER

IOWA

 

I expect us to tender Farley and bring back Geathers on a short term deal, while letting Mitchell walk. But even with Farley and Geathers back, Safety remains a need. Especially if you consider that we run a lot of nickel and dime packages, Amani Hooker would provide depth and the traits required of a SS next to our other Hooker. Run support and coverage on short and intermediate routes, while Malik can be the centerfielder he was projected to be.

 

129: R4P27

DL KHALEN SAUNDERS

WESTERN ILLINOIS

 

I think that with the depth of the interior DL class, Ballard can afford to wait maybe longer than most predict to get help there, guys like Renell Wren and Saunders are disruptive players inside that can be had in round 3 or 4 (their stock is rising after the senior bowl showing however), while some of the predicted 1st or 2nd rounders like Dexter Lawrence or Dre'Mont Jones could struggle getting pressure at the next level.

 

135: R4P33

WR TERRY MCLAURIN

OHIO STATE

 

McLaurin is the kind of prospect that's just meant to be drafted by Ballard. Yes, he's had his problems with drops, but he's got the speed, route running ability, IQ and leadership skills. Originally from Indianapolis, he was one of the leaders with the Buckeyes last year and his eloquence in interviews reminded me of a Nyheim Hines interview on GMF I watched this season. With him being compared to Nate Burleson and him being mentioned as a future CEO, I can absolutely see Ballard making this pick. 

 

I didn't include Round 5-7, because even rounds 3 and 4 seem to be a shot in the dark before the combine, there really is no way to foresee how things will shake out exactly, tried to get the value of the players right to a certain degree however. While Wren was there on the board in the fourth for example, I don't think he will be in reality, so I took Saunders instead.

We have the 34th overall pick (from the Jets).

I like the idea of trading back to acquire more picks, there's a lot of talent in the 2nd-3rd Round range this year, may as well fully exploit that.

The draft network has a draft machine/simulator. 

 

I like most of your pick. I don't love the Rapp pick too much.

I like the draft network projections a little better for their mock draft simulator here:

    • So you really wanted a LT which is still being addressed. Got it. 
    • Nice breakdown, I also graded the overall draft a C+, just a tad above average, not quite in the B range. According to Ian Rappaport, Dayo may be ready by late September which is good news. I also loved the Paye pick. I wanted a LT in round 1 or 2 but no harm is done if we sign Fisher or Leno. 
    • In the Ballard years, during the regular season as we have a 53 man roster, CB wants a maximum of 10 defensive lineman.  It’s been 5 and 5 sometimes.  But it has also been 6 ends and 4 tackles.    But I don’t believe we’ve ever had more than 6 DE’s.  Not to my knowledge.  
    • After doing a little research and letting things settle in for almost a week since Day 1..........   Day 1 Overall Grade: A Pick: Edge Kwity Paye 1-21 My thoughts that night: Great pick. A little surprised he dropped to 21, but stoked he did. Aside from checking all the boxes in terms of potential, he's a walk off grand slam in terms of "story" and character. Only thing I didn't like is that he was Michigan product lol, but he's all Blue now.  My thoughts now: Unchanged. 2021 Impact: Will be at minimum early contributor 1-2 downs Long term impact:  Likely to develop into a 3 down guy by year 2 if not earlier. Has the size and speed to be a really well rounded pass and run defender. Financial impact: Fantastic impact to the cap with 4-5 years of value while on his rook contract. That's huge at the DE position if he turns into the guy most think he is. What EastStreet would have done at 21: The exact same thing What made me chuckle: Ojulari dropping to 50 after some of the board talk.   Day 2 Overall Grade: C Pick: DE Dayo Odeyingbo 2-54 My thoughts that night: Surprised we took a second DE. Surprised we didn't try to grab a OT. I really "liked" Dayo pre-draft. While a lot of other folks liked Boogie Basham in the 2nd, Dayo was one of my favorite targets. That said, I preferred other Day 2/second round guys simply because of the injury timing, and the fact he likely won't contribute much if at all in 2021. Overall, I like him as a long term prospect, but I don't like him as a Colts second round pick in 2021. My thoughts now: Unchanged. Likely won't change until we're into the 2022 season and we see what have. He's a raw guy, that really shouldn't be so raw after being a 3 year starter. The good news is he won't be pressed into action early, and should have a year to work on technique. Bad news is he's likely not a factor in 2021, and that's just not good for a 2nd round pick. Had he been healthy, the grade would have been B, maybe B+. I did not let the fact we didn't get an OT impact my grading. My gut says it will be year 3 before we see production worthy of a 2nd rounder, but I love his ceiling/potential. A much much better pick than Banogu in the 2nd last year in terms of risk. I could see him being a versatile guy. Not necessarily as tweener-ish as Autry or Lewis, but still someone you can move around and could be a terror on the interior in passing downs.  2021 Impact: Little to none Long term impact: High ceiling dice roll with injury and layoff concerns...., but my gut says he'll be good in year 3. Financial impact: Not harmful, but not helpful earlier. If he doesn't produce well until year 3, we'll have missed out on half the benefit of his rook contract. What EastStreet would have done at 54: After Little was picked at 45, I started hoping Ballard would trade up a few to get Cosmi or Radunz. After JOK didn't get picked in the first 10 picks of the 2nd, I also was halfway hoping we move up to get him. Still surprised he dropped to 2-20. Once 54 came, I would have taken WR Terrace Marshall Jr., DE Payton Turner, or OTs Spencer Brown or a short list of others. What made me chuckle: Colts passing on a TE that was still there after a lot of the talk on the board.    Day 3 Grade Overall Grade: C  Pick: TE Kylen Granson 4-127 Pick Grade: C+ My thoughts that night: Not shocked, but thought he would have been there in the 5th or 6th. He's one of the guys I liked for late rounds as a pure move TE, but too small that early. My thoughts now: Not much change. Still a bit of a reach IMO. He's somewhat of a Burton clone, that likely doesn't block as well. I thought Reich featured Burton too much last year out of the slot, but also thought it was because we were lacking Campbell. Hoping Campbell stays healthy this year, and hope Granson doesn't steal snaps from either Campbell or MAC. Impact - Overall, low to medium. I think he'll be a 3rd TE option. He's really not a prototypical TE, and will play in that fuzzy space between TE, HB, and slot. Not a big fan of the hybrid position if it's going to steal snaps from true TE or true slot. What EastStreet would have done at 127: Once the pick came, definitely OT Jaylon Moore. If he can't cut it at OT, he'll be a capable OG. At worst, he'll be high end flex backup. If Josh Ball's character issue checked out, would have taken him as well.  Pick : SAF Shawn Davis 5-165 Pick Grade: B- My thoughts that night: Huh? You take a SAF and didn't move up a few spots to grab Jamar Jackson, who was graded my to be a top 3 safety in the draft. I even though about Jackson at 127. My thoughts now: Warming up. Davis does offer some potential. Good flex option that should come in and compete with Willis early on. Our scheme doesn't ask much of Willis or SSs in general, so early PT isn't out of the question. Davis has range in the 2 deep sets as well. After watching film and reading reviews, he's more gifted physically and a better hitter, but less instinctual perhaps than Willis. He's likely better deep, but not as good underneath as Blackmon. Impact - If he picks up the scheme, could compete early with Willis at SS1, or as FS2 with Odum or even FS1 duties on 3rd and longs. What EastStreet would have done at 165: No brainer OT/OG Trey Smith. If you want a SAF... move up a few spots (give up a 6th or 7th) and get Jamar Jackson, or stay and take Christian Uphoff. I also liked OT Forsythe.  Pick: QB Sam Ehlinger 6-218 Pick Grade: F My thought that night: Wow, they must not think much of Eason at all. My thoughts now: You either have to say last year's 4th pick was bad, or this year's 6th was bad lol. Weak arm, short, poor pocket presence. Not going to lose sleep over a 6th round pick, but this seemed like a waste of a pick. There will be tons of vet FAs that will be available on the cheap if you're not happy with Eason.  Impact: Practice squad guy or simply cut What EastStreet would have done at 218: There's typically no obvious or no brainer picks in the 6th or 7th. I really like WR Cade Johnson at this point, but my first choice would have been OT/OG Trey Smith or CB Shakur Brown. Pick: WR Mike Strachan 7-229 Pick Grade: C My thought that night: Another big WR project? Are they giving up on Patmon already? My thoughts now: Hasn't changed much. Aside from initial thoughts, perhaps they think he can pack some weight on a play jumbo WR/TE hybrid. Still just a raw small school guy. Impact: Practice squad guy What EastStreet would have done at 229: At this point I'm pounding the table for CB Shakur Brown or LB Dylan Moses as both could end up at minimum ST studs. I'm even thinking Ballard might take a 3rd DE and was eying Charles Snowden. If we hadn't taken Davis though in the 5th, my first choice would have been SAF Uphoff. Pick: OG Will Fries 7-248 Pick Grade: C My thought that night: We improved the OL depth guys already, didn't take an early LT, so why a very limited OG prospect? My thoughts now: unchanged. Impact: Practice squad guy What EastStreet would have done at 7-248: see above at 229 lol...    Overall Draft Grade: C+
    • And his production fell sharply this past year.  Only played 38% of defensive snaps for WFT.  He had been seeing double that many.  Still had about the same sack percentage, though.   But as a depth guy, I can see some sense in it.  Local product, outside chance for HoF, mentor for Kwity and Dayo, won’t be expensive, won’t demand high snap count.
