Default Mel Kiper's Mock 1.0

(Mel Kiper) It's NFL Mock Draft time, and this is my first crack at predicting picks 1-32 for the Class of 2019. April's draft is coming faster than you think, and we now know which underclassmen are leaving school early and headed to the NFL, a list which includes intriguing quarterback prospect Kyler Murray. 2019 NFL DRAFT Remember that teams are early in their evaluations, and we still have to get through postseason all-star games, combine testing, medicals, pro days and individual workouts before their draft boards become set. Free agency in March will also change needs for several teams. I'm predicting each first-round pick here based on a combination of my Big Board rankings, each team's needs right now and my view on positions that could be upgraded. Let's dig into my 2019 NFL Mock Draft 1.0, starting with Arizona and ending with Green Bay, which has New Orleans' pick. Check out the SportsCenter special at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN2 for more on my thoughts -- and see if Todd McShay agrees -- on every pick. (1-17-19)


10) Denver Broncos: Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia

Former first-round pick Bradley Roby isa free agent, and Chris Harris Jr., who broke his leg in December, turns 30 over the summer. Cornerback is the No. 1 need for the Broncos. Baker isn't far behind Greedy Williams as the top corner in this class. General manager John Elway hit on his 2018 draft class, and he needs another good one to get the team back on track under new coach Vic Fangio.

Anyhoo, Bronc62, if you got this from ESPN or wherever, please leave the link and just the Broncos pick. Its their content, and it wouldnt be fair just to copy and paste it here.

Freaking PFF said cornerback is our #1 need as well. These people need to stop smoking crack. Also lulz at no QB’s being taken until #6 and only two by #13. These “experts” are hilariously bad at their jobs.

Assuming we don't magically sign a franchise QB in free agency, passing on a QB to go draft a defensive player there would be like having your house on fire but not calling 911 because you just got through to the radio show you've been on hold with and you want to request a song.

So many mocks have us not drafting a QB. It’s bizarre.

Remember, Kiper is going to be one of those "this is a weak QB class" talking heads.

Aware of paid content issues. I copied the full text from a third party site and not ESPN+, so I thought it was fair game.

Leave the link to the third party site and pare your post down to just the Broncos pick. If people want to see all 32, they can do the 3rd party site a favor and click the link.

Its still January, mocks are all over the place. Once we get past the free agency period, pro days, shrine games, combine, ect. the picture will start to become much clearer. I think even Kiper would admit at this point that they are largely throwing darts.

Here's the link:

https://www.reddit.com/r/nfl/comment...mock_draft_10/

It's from a commenter on Reddit NFL. I believe the entire 32 is of great interest to the Mane - especially the QB's - but moderate the post as you wish.

Nobody in the top 5 needs a QB. Unless someone trades up, no QB is going top 5.

Giants need a QB. Eli is toast. They currently have the number 3 pick.

Someone will trade up. That’s as obvious as it gets.

I'm thinking us. Probably to 5, maybe 2, depending on what SF asks for.

For some stupid reason, ESPN does their mocks without predicting trades, so they are bound to where the teams are drafting, but not picking a QB for Denver is laughable imo. No way Denver passes on a QB at 10 if only 1 were taken before then.

I will say reading this mock I already miss Mayock. Its not like he was spot on 100%, but I felt he knew what he was talking about a bit more than Kiper does.

It's so dumb. It's a mock draft. Mock some trades. Everyone knows they're going to happen. I remember last year Kiper and McShay did mocks the same day and McShay had trades and Kiper didn't. Kiper had a hissy fit about it.
