Charley Casserly 2019 NFL mock draft 1.0: Three QBs in Round 1

With the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine (March 1-4 on NFL Network) just around the corner, here's my first mock for Round 1 of this year's draft.

Nick Bosa
Ohio State · DE

The Cardinals add an explosive pass rusher to pair with Chandler Jones.

Josh Allen
Kentucky · EDGE

The 49ers are in desperate need of an outside pass rusher.

Rashan Gary
Michigan · DE

The Jets finally get the pass rusher they need.

Quinnen Williams
Alabama · DT

Dominant vs. the run and can rush the passer. Williams is better than Ndamukong Suh was coming out of college.

Clelin Ferrell
Clemson · DE

The Bucs need a pass rusher opposite Jason Pierre-Paul.

Dwayne Haskins
Ohio State · QB

Spends a year (or less) learning behind Eli Manning. Big upside.

Cody Ford
Oklahoma · G

I'm expecting the Jaguars to acquire a QB1 before the draft, but they'll select a QB here if they don't.

T.J. Hockenson
Iowa · TE

DE and CB are also needs and Hockenson is a reach here, but so are any CBs or DEs at this spot, which is why I could see Detroit trading down.

Christian Wilkins
Clemson · DT

The Bills also need an outside rusher, OT and WR, but they take the best D-lineman on the board here.

Byron Murphy
Washington · CB

Versatile CB who can play press and man coverage.

Greg Little
Mississippi · T

Little has good size and athletic ability. He can play left or right tackle for Cincinnati.

Jonah Williams
Alabama · OT

Green Bay needs pass rushers, but protecting Aaron Rodgers takes priority.

Kyler Murray
Oklahoma · QB

The Dolphins ignite their franchise and fan base by taking the best QB in the draft.

Jawaan Taylor
Florida · T

Adding more protection for their franchise QB is the No. 1 offseason goal of the Falcons.

Excellent field vision, anticipation and accuracy. The future is now in Washington!

Jachai Polite
Florida · EDGE

Polite broke out this past season as a pass rusher.

Devin White

Excellent instincts and athletic ability. Too good of a player to pass up here.

Andre Dillard
Washington State · T

Athletic offensive lineman who can play left tackle or move inside to guard.

Dexter Lawrence
Clemson · DT

They could use an interior O-lineman, but the top players at the position are already off the board. The decision comes down to a speedy WR vs. a DT, and they go with the latter.

Deandre Baker
Georgia · CB

An ILB is a definite possibility here, too, but they go CB in this scenario.

Montez Sweat
Mississippi State · EDGE

Shows the potential to be an excellent pass-rushing complement to Frank Clark, assuming Clark's retained. Sweat's a better athlete than Jadeveon Clowney was coming out of college.

A.J. Brown
Mississippi · WR

The Ravens will need to add weapons for Lamar Jackson.

Rock Ya-Sin
Temple · CB

Fast-rising CB who's excellent in press coverage.

Devin Bush
Michigan · LB

The Raiders add an undersized LB who is explosive and instinctive.

Josh Jacobs
Alabama · RB

The Eagles solve their RB problem with the draft's top player at the position.

Dre'Mont Jones
Ohio State · DT

Versatile defensive lineman who fits the athletic mold that Indy wants.

Trayvon Mullen
Clemson · CB

Good cover CB whose speed will play a big part in determining where he goes in the draft.

Mack Wilson
Alabama · LB

The Chargers fill a major need on defense with this pick.

Jerry Tillery
Notre Dame · DT

Best defensive player on the board at this point. Tillery can improve the Chiefs' pass rush.

Irv Smith
Alabama · TE

Smith is the second-best tight end in the draft.

Taylor Rapp
Washington · S

Rapp would be a nice addition if the Rams lose Lamarcus Joyner in free agency.

Noah Fant
Iowa · TE

Fant becomes the third TE to go in Round 1, and the second one from Iowa. Is he Gronk's successor?
