2019 NFL Post-Combine Mock Draft, Team Needs


11. Cincinnati Bengals

The Pick Will Be: OT Greg Little, Ole Miss

Biggest Need: Offensive Tackle

Little flew under the radar a bit at the Combine. He didn’t do anything fantastic, he wasn’t fast, and he wasn’t particularly amazing outside of measuring 6-5 and 310 pounds. He’s an Day One starter of need for the Bengal line.

12. Green Bay Packers

The Pick Will Be: DT Ed Oliver, Houston

Biggest Need: Pass Rusher

Enough is enough. The Packers need outside pass rushers and could really use Iowa TE TJ Hockenson, but Oliver is way too good and way too dangerous not to go with here. There’s a second Green Bay pick later in the round to potentially grab a Noah Fant or another tight end.

13. Miami Dolphins

The Pick Will Be: QB Daniel Jones, Duke

Biggest Need: Quarterback

It’ll be among the draft’s most interesting moments. The Dolphins have to upgrade from the Ryan Tannehill experience. Will it be Drew Lock, Will Grier, or Jones? The Duke passer is an overreach, but the position is a need pick.

14. Atlanta Falcons

The Pick Will Be: DT Christian Wilkins, Clemson

Biggest Need: Defensive Tackle

Green Bay will likely go with one of the top tackles on the board, and Atlanta will take the other. Offensive tackle might be a thought, but Oliver or Wilkins will be too good to pass up.

15. Washington Redskins

The Pick Will Be: QB Drew Lock, Missouri

Biggest Need: Quarterback

The offense can’t count on Alex Smith to be back and ready to roll, and even with the addition of Case Keenum, the pick here has to potentially be a Day One starter. The Redskins will take Lock or Jones, whichever one is still there.

16. Carolina Panthers

The Pick Will Be: OT/OG Jonah Williams, Alabama

Biggest Need: Pass Rusher

This would be the Jachai Polite spot if the Florida defensive end didn’t have such a disastrous combine. The Panthers could use a little versatility on the offensive line, and if Williams works out at tackle, great. If he’s needed more at guard, that’s fine for this line, too.

17. Cleveland Browns

The Pick Will Be: WR DK Metcalf, Ole Miss

Biggest Need: Wide Receiver

The quarterback needs a star receiver to work with over the next several years. Metcalf’s health issues – he suffered a neck injury last year – has to check out, but a guy this big, this fast, and this good is perfect for Baker Mayfield.

18. Minnesota Vikings

The Pick Will Be: OT Andre Dillard, Washington State

Biggest Need: Offensive Line

The Vikings have to upgrade the offensive front. They have to get the running game going, so they’re going to take a star from the Washington State offense? Yeah, but if Little or Williams are still on the board, Minnesota will grab one of those two tackles.

19. Tennessee Titans

The Pick Will Be:  TE TJ Hockenson, Iowa

Biggest Need: Wide Receiver

If this Marcus Mariota thing is going to start to really work, he needs more weapons to work with. Hockenson is a do-it-all type who’ll help blocking as well as with his pass catching skills. He won’t slide any further than this.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pick Will Be: CB Byron Murphy, Washington

Biggest Need: Cornerback

The Steelers will go with the best corner on the board, and it could be Georgia’s Deandre Baker if he’s still around. Murphy rocked on the explosive jumping drills in Indianapolis to make up for the mediocre 4.55 in the 40. He’s the sort of playmaker on the board the Steelers would use right away.
