Post Free Agency Mock Draft

Post Free Agency Mock Draft With Trades

  1. Cincinnati: QB Joe Burrow. Copy and Paste this until the 2020 draft.
  2. Washington: EDGE Chase Young. Washington takes a page out of the 49ers playbook and builds from the D-Line up.
  3. TRADE: Miami: QB Tua Tagovilua. Miami gives up their 5th overall pick and 26th overall pick to Detroit to assure they get their guy. Tua can make this franchise watchable again with added help. If fully healthy, this trade will be very worth it for Miami.
  4. New York Giants: OT Jedrick Wills. Giants could take one of the stud defensive players, but they settle with protecting their merchandise. Wills is my top OT in the class.
  5. Detroit (from Miami): CB Jeff Okudah. The Lions move down and still get their guy. Darius Slay is in Philadelphia and Detroit wastes no time to snag his replacement. Pair him with Trufant and you have one nasty tandem.
  6. Los Angeles Chargers: QB Justin Herbert. Now that they have moved on from Rivers they need to start thinking about the future. Insert Herbert. The strong armed QB will have a myriad of weapons in LA. Let’s see if he can use those weapons to get to the next level.
  7. Carolina: DT Derrick Brown. Carolina is looking to add a piece on their interior D-Line and why not start with Brown as their anchor. His ability to take on double teams will help a Panthers team that allowed nearly 144 rushing yards per game last year.
  8. Arizona: OT Mehki Becton. The Cardinals downright fleeced the Texans for arguably the best WR in the game. Although I would love to see them add another WR for Kyler Murray, the Cardinals should go O-Line here. Becton is raw, but he bench presses grown men all over the field. Kliff will sleep well at night knowing the QB he’s wanted for years finally has some time to throw.
  9. Jacksonville: Defensive Athlete Isaiah Simmons. Jacksonville can’t help themselves on this one. They snag the most versatile player in the draft to start building that defense up to where they once were.
  10. Cleveland: OT/OG Tristan Wirfs. The Browns snag Jack Conklin and double down to protect Baker. Wirfs is a down right stupid athlete.
  11. New York Jets: OT Andrew Thomas. Go look at the Jets roster right now. I’ll wait. Look at their O-line. Do you see anyone? I don’t either. 
  12. Las Vegas: WR Henry Ruggs III. Al Davis would be so proud. Ruggs is the first WR off the board. Ruggs ran a 4.27 at the combine, but he honestly looks even faster on film. After looking at the rival Chiefs, the Raiders add Sonic the Hedgehog to their core.
  13. San Francisco: WR Ceedee Lamb. The rich get richer. After trading Buckner to the Colts for this pick, they snagged, in my opinion, the best WR in the draft. Get the ball to him and watch what he can do after the catch. 
  14. Tampa Bay: OT Josh Jones. Seeing Tom Brady in a Buccaneers jersey is going to take some getting used to. They have a million offensive weapons for Tom to toy with, now it’s time to sure up that O-Line. Insert Josh Jones. He is still a raw talent, but has the tools and athleticism to be successful.
  15. Denver: DT Javon Kinlaw. Would you be surprised if Kinlaw is the best defensive player from this draft in a few years? I wouldn’t either. The rest of the AFC needs to be on notice for Denver’s pass rush with Kinlaw.
  16. TRADE: Philadelphia: WR Jerry Jeudy. Jeudy falls out of the top 15 players, but nothing further. The Eagles jump on the opportunity to snag Jeudy from the next few teams. Jeudy is the best route runner in the draft. Creating separation is Jeudy’s forte. Wentz gets his weapon and doesn’t have to throw to a bunch of 5th stringers. 
  17. Dallas: CB CJ Henderson. Dallas lost Byron Jones in free agency and immediately turned around to draft a replacement. Henderson has good ball skills, but can take some risks getting there. He plays his best ball in press coverage. Henderson is FAST and he needs to be to keep up with McLaurin twice a year.
  18. Miami: OT Austin Jackson. Jackson is very raw and will need some time to establish his fundamentals before seeing the football field. He is a good run blocker that needs to develop as a pass blocker.
  19. TRADE: New England: QB Jordan Love. Life after Tom Brady is going to be strange for New England. As of now, the Patriots have not found a suitor, but i am sure they will sign or trade for one. With that being said, the Pats jump at the opportunity to groom Jordan Love. Love has all the tools needed to be successful at the next level. He will need to work side by side with Josh McDaniels to improve his overall decision making. Could this be the next star for New England?
  20. Jacksonville: CB Kristian Fulton. Replacing one of the best corners in the league is hard to do, but the Jags have to start somewhere. Fulton is a functional man cover Corner that can grow into one of the best. If he wants to be the best man to man corner in the league he needs to work on his press strength. He will be a stud at the next level.
  21. Atlanta (From Philadelphia): K’Lavon Chaisson. High motor is a draft term that gets thrown around fairly often. Chaisson is who we are talking about when we use “high motor.” With good bend and exceptional effort, Chaisson will be a top tier pass rusher in the next few years.
  22. Minnesota (from Buffalo): WR Jalen Reagor. Stefon Diggs expressed displeasure with the Vikings organization for quite some time. They traded him to Buffalo for this pick. Minnesota gets an explosive playmaker in Reagor. Get him the ball and allow his speed to finish the play. Reagor has some of the best ball skills in the air as well. Despite his small frame, Reagor wins 50/50 balls at the highest point. He will be a nice compliment to Thielen. 
  23. Las Vegas (from New England): S Xavier McKinney. The Raiders addressed their biggest defensive need at the Linebacker position. There were a number of ways the Raiders could have drafted at this point. They were able to trade back, pick up some extra picks and still address their secondary. Mckinney is a Free Safety with decent range. He covers ground faster than his 4.63 time. Having two hard hitting safeties in the Raiders secondary will help to combat the Sutton’s, Hill’s and Allen’s of the world.
  24. New Orleans: WR Brandon Aiyuk. After Jeudy, who is the best route runner in the draft? Look no further than the kid out of Arizona State. He set the combine on fire by displaying what everyone saw on tape; He runs fast, jumps high and breaks smooth.
  25. Minnesota: CB Jeff Gladney. The Vikings secondary has a tough task week in and week out in the NFC North. Each secondary has to be able to cover some amazing pass catchers. This is where Gladney comes in. Gladney is one of the best Corners in this draft when the ball is in the air. There could be an entire highlight tape with just Gladney’s pass deflections. Don’t let his frame fool you. Throw the ball up against Gladney and watch him wave his hands incomplete a majority of the time. 
  26. Detroit (from Miami): Edge AJ Epenesa. Epenesa’s ability to work down the line and set the edge is second to none. He can shed and rip with the best of them. This ability will allow him to dominate against the run. As a pass rusher, his violent hands allow him to get past his opponents. He can be a bit stiff and does not show great bend, but he is what he is as a pass rusher: Strong and violent.  
  27. Seattle: Edge Zack Baun. Baun is a smart player that relies on his football IQ over his athletic ability to put himself into position to succeed. He uses different pass rush moves to get to the QB. Where he is different from the edge that was drafted before him (Epenesa) is his violence at the point of attack. He will need to add strength and work on his hands to separate and shed. 
  28. Baltimore: LB Patrick Queen. Athletic LB’s are the new norm. Look no further than Patrick Queen. He can cover and work down the line to make the tackle. Not a sure tackler when his technique doesn’t break down. His coverage skills are what set him apart. The kid can flat out fly. 
  29. Tennessee:  DT Ross Blacklock. Big Ross has POWER. This has to be said in all caps, because it is the only way to do it justice. When he is on the field he is absolutely dominant. He is able to take on double teams and still come away with the Quarterback on the ground. Injuries are his biggest concern. If he can stay on the field, Blacklock may be the steal of the draft.
  30. Green Bay: LB Kenneth Murray. One word keeps coming up when Murray is being talked about: Alpha. Leadership is a trait that can’t be taught and from everything i’ve read, he has that IT factor. Sideline to sideline speed and ability to make open field tackles make Murray a solid anchor to build around. He tends to get caught up in blocks. Sometimes he fires into the wrong gap on run plays, but with a pro LB coach to guide his decision making, Murray will be a stud at the next level. 
  31. San Francisco: DB Grant Delpit. Instincts are everything. Delpit has a knack for finding the ball. He isn’t great in run support, but can lay the wood when he needs to. I believe he can play both safety positions, although Free would suit him the best. He is one of the players that you want to put on the field and let him sniff around the ball at all times. 
  32. Kansas City: CB Trevon Diggs. A zone cover corner, Diggs can cover and break in his zone with the best of them. Not great with his ball skills, but his ability to deflect at the point makes up for it.
