The Final 4-Round Mock Draft: Round 3

With the NFL Draft beginning this Thursday night, Nat L. Faybian’s Senior Writer Douglas Love compiles a final four-round mock draft.

Round 3

65. Arizona Cardinals: Nasir Adderley, FS, Delaware

Pro Personnel gushed over Adderley at the Reese’s Senior Bowl.

Adderley showed nice range at the Senior Bowl, along with impressive game speed. Has coverage skills and can double as a return man.

66. Pittsburgh Steelers (via Oak): Hakim Bulter, WR, Iowa State

Bulter has averaged 19.5 yards per catch over his three-year career at Iowa State. Uses his height and size to box out like a basketball player. Very good and going up and winning the contested ball.

67. San Francisco 49ers: J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, WR, Stanford

In Arcega-Whiteside is another player that likes to post-up as if he were on the basketball court. He as excellent body control while in the air. He gives the 49ers add a solid redzone target.

68. New York Jets: N’Keal Harry, WR, Arizona State

As the wideout’s begin to fall of the board, the Jets snap up N’Keal Harry. Harry is a big bodied slot receiver is gets good yards after the catch.

69. Jacksonville Jaguars: Tyler Roemer, OT, San Diego State

Roemer is a big physical mauler that could play inside or out.

70. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Cole Holcomb, LB, North Carolina

Holcomb has posted some impressive numbers, like a 6.77 three cone and a 4.18 shuttle.
Photo: GoHeels.com

Holcomb has excellent agility and short area burst. As the Bucs transition to a 3-4 scheme, they’ll need to draft a few linebackers. Holcombe impressed during the East-West Shrine game.

**New York Giants: Selection forfeited during the 2018 supplemental draft.**

71. Denver Broncos: Mecole Hardman, WR, Georgia

Hardman will make a good third receiver to start his career. He has 4.33 speed and excellent return skills. Still a bit raw, so plenty of upside.

72. Cincinnati Bengals: Dawson Knox, TE, Mississippi

Knox is a reliable blocking tight end with plenty of upside as a receiver.

73. New England Patriots (via Det): Max Scharping, OT, No. Illinois

Scharping has the tools needed to play left tackle. He mirrors well and can direct defenders out of the play. He’s actually pretty strong with good agility and could find himself playing inside and out at the next level – at least until he lands a starting spot.

74. Buffalo Bills: Damien Harris, RB, Alabama

Great value pick at seventy-four. Harris is a guy the Bills can pound the ball with. He has added value as a receiver out of the backfield.

75. Green Bay Packers: Emanuel Hall, WR, Missouri

Hall has averaged 20.8 yard per catch during his career at Missouri.
Photo: The Kansas City Star

Hall is a 6′ 2″ burner with 4.3 speed. An underrated player who will give Rodgers a deep threat. Can leap high for the jump ball.

76. Washington Redskins: Will Grier, QB, West Virginia

Washington doesn’t panic or reach and still gets their man.

77. Carolina Panthers: Miles Boykin, WR, Notre Dame

In Boykin, the Panthers get a tall, big bodied, receiver with good hands and the ability to win the jump ball.

78. Miami Dolphins: Chuma Edoga, OT, USC

The Dolphins add a left tackle to protect Fitzpatrick’s blindside. Edoga is a prior 5-star recruit. He spent his career at USC playing right tackle. He was asked to play left tackle during Senior Bowl week and held his own.

79. Atlanta Falcons: Amani Oruwariye, CB, Penn State

Oruwariye (21) has defended 20 passes and picked off 8 in his career.
Photo: Penn State Athletics

Oruwariye possesses quick feet and fluid hips. He trusts his eyes and generally has a clear understanding of what the offense is trying to do. He shows good hand-eye coordination. Isn’t afraid to make a tackle. The Falcons add a solid corner.

80. Cleveland Browns: Trey Pipkins, OT, Sioux Falls

Pipkins had a solid performance at the East-West Shrine game. An academic NSIC All-American performer. Strong with good footwork.

81. Minnesota Vikings: Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S, Florida

Gardner-Johnson is a play-maker who improved tremendously in 2018. He looks to be a player on the rise. Has very good coverage skills. Can shadow receivers and has good closing speed. A bit of a ball-hawk. Willing tackler that does not hesitate.

82. Tennessee Titans: Michael Jordan, OG, Ohio State

A three-year starter at Ohio State. The underclassman has played guard and center, and even some tackle.

83. Pittsburgh Steelers: Anthony Nelson, DE, Iowa

Nelson uses a combination of speed and power to create quarterback pressures. He’s one of the best in the nation at creating chaos in the backfield. An excellent value pick for the 3-4 Steelers.

84. Seattle Seahawks: Amani Hooker, FS, Iowa

Hooker is an instinctive player with loose hips and light feet. Has good agility and size. Will fly to the ball and is eager to throw his body into the ball carrier. Good at tracking the ball in the air and will go for the pick.

85. Baltimore Ravens: Mack Wilson, LB, Alabama

Wilson has played in 33 games in three years at Alabama.
Photo: RollTide.com

Hard-hitting middle linebacker for the Crimson Tide. Wilson is athletic enough to play inside or out, and has plenty of speed.

86. Houston Texans: Foster Moreau, TE, LSU

Not a flashy player, but will get the job done. With good coaching, he’s got plenty of floor. Can block and catch.

87. Chicago Bears: Ryquell Armstead, RB, Temple

Can catch the ball out of the backfield; can handle the load (at 220+ lbs.); and shows good one cut inside running.

88. Detroit Lions (via Phi): Oshane Ximinies, DE, Old Dominion

Probably a third down speed rush specialist, quick first step.

89. Indianapolis Colts: Daniel Wise, DT, Kansas

Disruptive initial burst off the line creating pressure in the backfield.

90. Dallas Cowboys: Andy Isabella, WR, UMass

Isabella was also a track star at UMass.
Photo: J.Anthony Roberts|AP

In Isabella, the Cowboys get a shifty slot receiver with 4.31 speed.

91. Los Angeles Chargers: Khalen Saunders, DT, Western Illinois

Fiery, stout, and rushes with good straightline power and keeps his pads low. Will make a solid rotational player.

92. Kansas City Chiefs: L.J. Collier, DE, TCU

Intriguing combination of powr and speed, can play inside or end. Also the best player on the board at this point.

93. New York Jets (via NO): Chase Winovich, DE, Michigan

Scrappy, high-motor player who hustles on every down. Tempo setter.

94. Los Angeles Rams: Joe Jackson, DE, Miami

Underrated end with 22.5 career sacks and 35.5 career TFL.

95. New York Giants (via NE, Cle): Germaine Pratt, ILB, NC State

Has a rare burst to the hole, had 104 tackles in 2018. With good coaching should be a better pro than college player.

**Compensatory selections begin**

96. Washington Redskins: Bobby Okereke, ILB, Stanford

Okereke is athletic enough to drop into coverage.
Photo: Stan Szeto|USA TODAY Sports

The Redskins need an upgrade at ILB. Okereke looks to blow opponents up with aggressive enthusiasm. He has 227 career tackles, and also has 8 passes defended.

97. New England Patriots: Christian Miller, LB, Alabama

Good spot to take a shot on a boom-or-bust talent. Miller ha terrific athleticism, but limited production. Would make a nice blitzer.

98. Jacksonville Jaguars (via LAR): Dexter Williams, RB, Notre Dame

Williams has good footwork, is patient as he presses to the line, trusts his eyes, and then exploded. Good cut-back runner, smooth acceleration, takes what is given.

99. Los Angeles Rams: Kerrith Whyte, RB, Florida Atlantic

Singletary’s lesser known teammate with 4.3 speed. Also has return skills. Will have better pro career than college.

100. Carolina Panthers: David Long, CB, Michigan

Might be the most underrated CB in the draft. Long’s strength is his ability to mirror receivers in the short area, making him ideal in the slot. Has excellent lateral agility, good closing speed, and good recovery skills. Can match up well against bigger receivers too.

101. New England Patriots: Zach Allen, DT, Boston College

Allen’s strength is his strength – using his bull-rush to consistently push opponents into the backfield.

102. Baltimore Ravens: Jalen Hurd, WR, Baylor

Has over 4,000 yards from scrimmage as a RB and WR.

Safeties: Final Position Rankings

2019 NFL DRAFT: TOP RANKED SAFETIES

This safety class is really deep. There’s the top 12, and those guys should go in the first three rounds. Savage, Thornhill, and Hooker, anyone of them has a chance to sneak into the bottom of the first round. However, it’s more likely that the run on these top 12 safeties will begin in second round.

There’s a second tier of about 12 guys and they should go in the middle rounds. The two small school guys, Malik Davis and Billy Inge, have speed and kick return experience.

Finally, there’s the last group of 14, and they’ll go in the late rounds or be signed as UDFAs.

Darnell Savage has rare game speed and should go in the first round.
Photo: Art Pittman/USA TODAY Sports

1. Darnell Savage, Maryland, 5-11/198

Savage had an impressive Combine, he ran a 4.36 with very good numbers in the broad jump and the vertical jump. Showed light feet and fluid hips. However, what really stands out about Savage is his playing speed. Turn on the game film, and he is consistently the fastest player on the field. Plays exceptionally well downhill. Looks like a first round pick.

2. Juan Thornhill, Virginia, 6-0/205

Physically, Thornhill tested off the charts for a cornerback. He had a 4.42 forty, 21 reps of 225 on the bench, a 44″ vertical jump, and a 141″ broad jump. A former basketball star, his athleticism shows up on film. Will sacrifice his body, but not a thumper.

3. Amani Hooker, Iowa, 5-11/210

Instinctive player with loose hips and light feet. Has good agility and size. Will fly to the ball and is eager to throw his body into the ball carrier. Good at tracking the ball in the air and will go for the pick.

4. Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, Florida, 5-11/210

Gardner-Johnson is a play-maker who improved tremendously in 2018. He looks to be a player on the rise. Has very good coverage skills. Can shadow receivers and has good closing speed. A bit of a ball-hawk. Willing tackler that does not hesitate.

5. Taylor Rapp, Washington, 6-0/208

High football IQ, anticipates well. Well -built and likes to play aggressive. Solid tackler that takes good angles. Didn’t run the forty at the Combine, but came in under 4.0 in the 20-yard shuttle. One of Rapp’s goals is to become the games highest drafted Chinese-American player. If teams overlook his poor Pro Day performance, he could go higher.

6. Deionte Thompson, Alabama, 6-1/195

Thompson has a ton of potential. He didn’t run at the Combine or his Pro Day (has a screw in his wrist), but is reported to run in the 4.3’s. Physically, he looks the part. Quick, fluid, light feet and good hips.

7. Sheldrick Redwine, Miami, 6-0/196

Redwine had a good Senior Bowl showing and a good Combine too. He’s a well-built safety will good field awareness. Can cover well enough to stay on the field and fill the slot. His versatility will be an asset.

8. Will Harris, Boston College, 6-1/207

Hard hitting safety from Boston College, Harris was a four-year starter. Harris can blitz, cover receivers, and put the screws to a running back. Also adds special teams experience.

9. Johnathan Abram, Mississippi State, 5-11/205

Abram is that guy everyone tags as the “pure strong safety” in this group. He plays exceptionally well in the box, that is true. But don’t be fooled, Abram has played both safety positions in his career. He has shown good fluidity and enough speed to cover the back end.

10. Marvel Tell III, USC, 6-2/198

Tell hasn’t received the press some of the other safeties have, but he’s got good quickness. Tall and lanky, yet muscular. Can go sideline-to-sideline and would make a good high (or free) safety at the next level.

11. Nasir Adderely, Delaware, 6-0/206

Was talked about in the most positive of terms over and over again at the Senior Bowl. Had a good week to back up those opinions. Has excellent range and short-area quickness. Matches up well in coverage. Could be moved to nickel.

12. Marquise Blair, Utah, 6-1/195

Blair is another safety that loves to hit. Unfortunately, he’s not as big as Harris or Abram, and so won’t be drafted as high. Runs all over the field and is a tone setter for his team.

OTHER PLAYERS TO KEEP AN EYE ON:

  1. Saquan Hampton, Rutgers, 6-1/206
  2. Mike Edwards, Kentucky, 5-10/205
  3. Darius West, Kentucky, 5-11/208
  4. Zedric Woods, Mississippi, 5-11/205
  5. Nick Scott, Penn State, 5-11/201
  6. Tyree Kinnel, Michigan, 5-11/209
  7. Malik Davis, Austin Peay, 5-11/191
  8. Billy Inge III, East Stroudsburg, 5-9/188

Nat L. Faybian’s 2019 NFL Mock Draft Version 4.0, Round 2

Senior Writer Nat L. Faybian and Editor Douglas Love continue on to round two, alternating picks, in this three round Version 4.0 Mock. This time Douglas will pick first.

Round 2

Douglas: The draft this year is going to be exciting. This is such a deep class that there are going to be several players with first round talent sitting at the top of day two.

1. Arizona Cardinals: Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State (Douglas Love)

Campbell ran a blazing 4.31 at the Combine.
Photo: Blade/Dave Zapotosky

Campbell might actually end up in the first round. He ran a blazing 4.31 at the Combine. He looks fast on game tape. And as the old saying goes, “You can’t teach speed.”

2. Indianapolis Colts (via NYJ): Irv Smith, Jr., TE, Alabama (Nat L. Faybian)

Smith has worked hard at rounding out his game. His route running is the best in his position group, he’s improved tremendously as a blocker, and, of course, he has good hands.

3. Oakland Raiders: Bryon Murphy, CB, Washington (DL)

Here’s another guy that could just as easily gone in the first round. Light feet, terrific coverage skills, loves to study film. Tracks the ball well in the air. I think Gruden would be pleased with this pick.

4. San Francisco 49ers: Julian Love, CB, Notre Dame (NLF)

A top notch tackler with a thicker compact frame. He’s not afraid to stick his head in there and mix it up. Has good instincts and eye hand coordination. Is patient and doesn’t over-react.

5. New York Giants: Greg Little, OT, Mississippi (DL)

Little has received so little exposure during this whole draft process, and I’m not sure why? He’s started close to thirty games at left tackle against the best the SEC has to offer. Looks like a natural left tackle at the next level. There’s some concern about his effort – he’s doesn’t go above and beyond his duty – that’s the way it shows up on some film anyway. But he doesn’t give up sacks and at the end of the day, his job is to protect his quarterback, and he does that.

6. Jacksonville Jaguars: Miles Sanders, RB, Penn State (NLF)

Last year, this guy was only beginning to tap his potential. He has all the athleticism you need at the position, but what sets him apart is his dedication to conditioning, to the weight room, to film study. He’ll be a better pro than he was a college player.

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Cody Ford, OG, Oklahoma (DL)

Ford is another guy that could have gone in the first round. The Bucs would love to add a guy like Ford that can compete for the starting right guard position, and has enough flexibility to play right tackle if needed.

8. Buffalo Bills: Chris Lindstrom, OG, Boston College (NLF)

Lindstrom is the top rated pure guard on the board. In other words, Ford played tackle in college, but Lindstrom was a guard and projects to be guard at the next level. What impresses me most about Lindstrom is the way he sinks his hips, and the way he is always working to get in a better position. He just doesn’t quit.

9. Denver Broncos: Dre’Mont Jones, DT, Ohio State (DL)

Jones is the last of the guys who have that first round potential, but, again, because the deep is so deep, ends up in the second. Strong and tenacious, Jones has very good ball get off. He’s able to get in the backfield and disrupt – that equals tackles-for-loss and sacks. He is also good in pursuit.

10. Cincinnati Bengals: Tytus Howard, OT, Alabama State (NLF)

Titus Howard (L) was the only tackle capable of slowing down Montez Sweat (R) during Senior Bowl practices. Photo: Bucs Report

Alabama State’s Tytus Howard showed excellent footwork during the Senior Bowl. His ability to kick and mirror were the best on display. He could stand to be a little more physical, but he can do it. Very competitive, hates to get beat.

11. Detroit Lions: Emanuel Hall, WR, Missouri (DL)

Hall has 4.39 speed and he’s 6′ 2″, so, he can take the top off or go up and get the contested ball. The Lions sure could use a player like Hall to stretch the field.

12. Green Bay Packers: Kaleb McGary, OT, Washington (NLF)

McGary is a right tackle that plays with a nasty streak. His mentality is perfect for the frozen tundra when you need to run the ball down your opponents throat. He’s out to ruin somebody’s day.

13. Atlanta Falcons: Joejuan Williams, CB, Vanderbilt (DL)

Teams are looking to find a way to neutralize the tall receiver. Williams is 6′ 4″, the tallest cornerback in the draft. Williams coach, Derek Mason, often compares Williams to Richard Sherman. If he’ll be all that, I don’t know. But Atlanta does play Mike Evans twice a year, and getting a taller corner to help against those 50-50 catches would be a good idea.

14. Washington Redskins: Deebo Samuel, WR, So. Carolina (NLF)

Samuel looked like he was playing at a level above everyone else at the Senior Bowl. His ability as a return specialist is a bonus.

15. Carolina Panthers: Erik McCoy, OC, Texas A&M (DL)

Carolina’s offensive line had more than their share of injuries last year, and now it’s time to shuffle the deck. McCoy is a three-year starter with an attack style of play.

16. Miami Dolphins: Jochai Polite, DE, Florida (NLF)

Polite has been working to rehab his image since the Combine. Everybody makes mistakes, and to be quite honest, Polite has too much talent to pass on when getting pressure on the quarterback is at a premium these days.Last year, Polite had 19.5 tackles-for-loss and 11 sacks. I think the Dolphins would welcome that kind of production.

17. Cleveland Browns: Taylor Rapp, S, Washington (DL)

A sound tackler with excellent football instincts. He has good route recognition and isn’t one to get fooled. Good at tracking the ball in the air. He trusts his eyes.

18. Minnesota Vikings: Mack Wilson, ILB, Alabama (NLF)

Alabama’s Mack Wilson had six interceptions during his career.
Photo: Bama Hammer

Wilson has a lot of upside and plenty of raw talent. He has the size, speed, and athleticism teams covet. Is a powerful enough linebacker that can take on a guard or use his quickness to slip the gap. Is also reliable in coverage.

19. Tennessee Titans: Amani Hooker, S, Iowa (DL)

There are so many attractive safety option at the top of this class, that it really all comes down to fit. To me, Hooker seems like he’d make a good Titan. He’s got a good combination of size, speed, quickness, and strength. Iowa has a track record of producing pro-ready safeties that possess really solid ball skills. I like Hooker here.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Damien Harris, RB, Alabama (NLF)

Speaking of “fit,” Damien Harris would be a perfect fit for the Steelers. He’s not going to do anything flashy, but he’s going to bring his lunch-bucket grind-it-out pounding style to work everyday. And as a bonus, he can catch the ball out of the backfield to keep things fresh.

21. Philadephia Eagles (via Balt): Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S/CB, Florida (DL)

Gardner-Johnson is a more versatile safety that can slide down and play some nickel. He not the hitter Hooker is, but he’s gives you more in term of pass defense. Both are good players, just slightly different style. I think Gardner-Johnson’s athleticism fits will in Philadelphia.

22. Houston Texans (via Sea): Darrell Henderson, RB, Memphis (NLF)

Intelligent runner with good vision. He has excellent short area quickness which is how he ran for all those yards in Memphis. He averaged over 8 yards per carry over his career. If he does half at at the next level, Texans have a special player.

23. Houston Texans: Trayvon Mullen, CB, Clemson (DL)

Clemson cornerback Trayvon Mullen (1) in action during the game against Texas A&M.

Mullen has played in the biggest of games, so the NFL won’t be too big for him. He’s got really good speed. He’s long. Can turn and run without loosing a step. Understands how to leverage the field to his advantage.

24. New England Patriots (from Chi): Johnathan Abram, S, Mississippi State (NLF)

Is more of a downhill box safety than most others. What scouts love about Abram is his ability to set the tone for the defense – and he does it with his aggressive hard-hitting play. Having said that, he does have ball skills too. But I think what NE will like is a guy that says, “Let’s get to it!”

25. Philadelphia Eagles: Oshane Ximines, DE, Old Dominion (DL)

In this modern passing league, the more you can disrupt the passer, the better you are. Ximines finished his college career with 51 tackles-for-loss and 32.5 sacks. Again, any player disruptive enough to throw off a quarterback’s timing is a valuable commodity.

26. Dallas Cowboys: Mecole Hardman, WR/RS, Georgia (NLF)

Hardman has 4.33 speed. He’s lesser known than some of the other players in the second round, but as we said earlier, “You can’t teach speed.” Dallas can use him in the return game, with the end around, and as a deep threat to stretch the field.

27. Indianapolis Colts: De’Andre Walker, ILB, Georgia (DL)

The Colts could go in a few different directions here, but they need a starting caliber inside linebacker. There is a drop-off between the two Devins and the rest of the class, so Walker is good value here at the end of round two.

28. Los Angeles Chargers: Nasir Adderley, S, Delaware (NLF)

Once the run on the defensive line is over and once most of the starting OT’s are gone, we’ve seen a run on defensive backs here late in the second round. I’m going to keep that going with Adderley to the Chargers.

29. Kansas City Chiefs: Deionte Thompson, S, Alabama (DL)

There’s more athleticism in this safety class, at this point of the draft, than there is in the cornerback class. So, I’m going safety here. Plus, teams are looking for these hybrid safeties that have a blend of speed and quickness and can cover the nickel. Thompson is one of those hybrid guys – an outstanding athlete with excellent change of direction and high end straight-line speed.

30. New Orleans: L.J. Collier, DE, TCU (NLF)

Collier is going to line up over the right tackle, but has enough bulk and strength to move inside on third and long. His agility and versatility will be what gets him draft above some players with more name recognition. A solid Senior Bowl certainly helped.

31. Kansas City Chiefs (via LAR): Khalen Saunders, DT, Western Illinois (DL)

Speaking of the Senior Bowl, Saunders was another player that improved his draft stock tremendously during that week. From Western Illinois, Saunders proved he had the strength and quickness to play against top tier competition. He’s short, fierce and bulldog tough.

32. New England Patriots: Max Scharping, OT, Northern Illinois (NLF)

Scharping has the tools to make an very good pro tackle. He has the size to move inside and play guard which in the end might be his best fit out of the box. With proper coaching, he could end up playing left tackle and being there for several years.
