2019 NFL Draft Prospect Rankings

23 posts in this topic

These are my personal rankings, but they aren't final. These players will start to separate after the Senior Bowl and the Combine. Also, there's still more game footage I want to watch before I make it concrete and give everyone draft grades.

Thanks for posting these man.

Surprised at a few of these - I like Rypien a ton, but he's your #3 QB? Was hoping we could snag him in the 5th. And you're not a Tytus Howard fan huh? Love Murphy as the top CB though. Dude is insanely talented. 

Still, I'm thinking very much along the same lines as you at nearly every position.

I have watched maybe a handful of games from each QB since it isn't a massive need and it's my least scouted position, but I'd say Rypien, Lock, Jones, and Grier are all very close to one another so I'd like to see more from each of them. These are just my initial impressions of them. Lock will probably pass Rypien if he has a good Senior Bowl.

I think Howard has good tools, but I haven't been able to find a whole lot of tape on him. I think he's a solid pass protector from what I've seen, but I just haven't seen him move people in the run game with the limited snaps I've watched. It's hard to find Alabama State games lol. Outside of the top 10 of my rankings, it's really close with a lot of these guys at some positions.

Changed up the rankings a bit after the two games yesterday, and after realizing I still had a few underclassmen in my rankings who didn’t declare. 

@Francis York Morgan I jumped Tytus Howard after watching him a bit. Also put Drew Lock in front of Rypien due to strength of competition, and natural arm talent. Watched a few more games of both and Rypien has had some rough showings. His OLine is trash, and he did have a good Shrine Bowl showing, but Lock’s upside is higher.

Yeah, I'm a little more down on Howard than I was due to his lack of "dog" - just doesn't seem to want to finish as much. You probably have him ranked about right. Really smooth mover in pass protection though.

Yeah isn’t a people mover really, but his upside is really good and his pass pro is some of the best in the class IMO. Curious to see how he fares at the Senior Bowl.

Added some people who aren’t mentioned much. 

JuWann Winfree, WR Colorado

 

Alex Bars, OG Notre Dame

 

Isaiah Johnson, CB Houston

 

JuWann had an outstanding NFLPA game. I like his size, speed, hands & ability to high point the ball. Nice quickness in and out of his breaks. Absolutely roasts people on double moves. Cheeks QB play held him back. 

Alex Bars tore his ACL this season, so he may slide, but before that he was arguably the best OG prospect in the nation. Nasty attitude, ability to get to the second level, locks on to targets fast and latches onto them, people. Great all around OG prospect. 

Isaiah Johnson is just a freak athlete. Has crazy length and size, but may very well run in the 4.4s. Perfect CB in Quinns scheme. Won’t be surprised if he is a day two pick.

Sidenote: I am not sure where Zach Allen fits. He’s too stiff to play the edge and not strong enough or big enough to be on the interior. Had a so-so day as well.

Alex Bars will be a sneaky mid to late round pick that will be a starter in the league...

 

My player rankings that are reslistic at our first 5 round picks:

Round 1

Simmons, Oliver, Jonah, Sweat, Wilkins, Ferrell, D Jones

Round 2

Risner, Tillery, Jelks, Dillard, Lindstrom, E Jenkins, J Love, Z Allen

Round 3

D Mack, Gaines, Prescod, Collier, Bryant, YaSin

Round 4

Coney, Slayton, Wise, Campbell, Godwin, J Williams, I Marshall

Round 5

Isabella, Renfrow, D Williams, Bars, Gaillard, Brailford

Yeah I think this is pretty accurate. I just am not a fan of Zach Allen. Even before the Senior Bowl I thought he was just average with no real position he excelled at. 

Rock Ya’sin and Iman Marshall had really good weeks. Same with Lonnie Johnson from Kentucky. Isaiah Johnson started out the week fine, but his short area quickness got exposed.

Guys I never understood the hype with:

- Kris Boyd - Been getting burned all season and some sites have him as a top 10 CB. Also a step too late and really sucked in Mobile. 

- Zach Allen - As I said before, just lack luster with no real position. No bend or moves to be an edge guy, and too small to be on the inside.

- Oshane Ximines & Jaylon Ferguson - Both guys are underwhelming. Gets stone walled too easily and aren’t explosive enough. 

- Joe Giles-Harris - I just don’t see it with this guy. Doesn’t show urgency or suddenness. He’s boring to watch and I don’t see him really knifing through gaps. Constantly see him listed as a top 10 LB. 

- Caleb Wilson - This guy has never flashed to me, yet I see him ranked pretty high up there among TEs some places. His agility and movement are awkward. Never seen anyone run as weird as him.

Great work

SLEEPERS

 Look at the Dawgs J. R. Reed he called defensive signals.

OG/OT Beedles 333 lbs. From Michigan St.

They would be good late round steals.

Isaiah Johnson is the next sherman. Where do you have Jimmy Mooreland going?

I see Mooreland as a 5th-6th rounder. He has quick twitch ability, but he’s strictly a NB right now. Too small to trust on the outside. I am curious to see how he tests though.
