Can Someone with The Athletic Sub post the full draft

Recommended Posts

Falcons draft:

16. K’Lavon Chaisson, Edge, LSU

47. Atlanta Falcons – Jordan Elliott, DT, Missouri

78. Atlanta Falcons – Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia

119. Atlanta Falcons – Antonio Gibson, RB, Memphis
While he lined up primarily at receiver in college, Gibson projects best in the backfield where he can be a playmaker with the ball in his hands. He scored a touchdown every 5.5 times he touched the ball on offense in 2019 for Memphis.

143. Atlanta Falcons (from BAL) – Darnay Holmes, CB, UCLA

228. Atlanta Falcons (from PHI) – Quintez Cephus, WR, Wisconsin
Cephus disappointed at the combine with a 4.73 40-yard dash, but he improved that number at his pro day (4.62) and his basketball background shows at the catch point. Growing up an hour outside of Atlanta, he has the talent to stick on the roster and outplay this draft spot.

I view this as a worst-case scenario draft for us.


First Round

1. Cincinnati Bengals – Joe Burrow, QB, LSU
The Bengals do things their own way, but it would still be a shock if Burrow is not the top pick to Cincinnati. Nothing more to say here.

2. Washington Redskins – Chase Young, Edge, Ohio State
No surprise at No. 1 and no surprise at No. 2. Young has been the top player in the draft since the summer and nothing has changed. It is highly unlikely the Redskins will receive a lucrative enough trade offer to move away from this pick.

3. Detroit Lions – Jeff Okudah, CB, Ohio State
The Lions are hoping a team trades up to No. 2 for a quarterback so Chase Young falls in their laps, but if that doesn’t happen (and they don’t receive a trade offer to move back), they will be just fine with his Ohio State teammate. With Darius Slay now in Philadelphia, Okudah will grow into the CB1 role in Detroit.

4. New York Giants – Tristan Wirfs, OT, Iowa
The Giants’ decision could come down to their highest-ranked tackle or a defensive playmaker like Isaiah Simmons. One of the reasons I think they will lean toward tackle is the impact that will make on other recent first-round picks like Saquon Barkley and Daniel Jones.

5. Miami Dolphins – Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon
We are all guessing when it comes to the Dolphins and which player they will draft here. Many around the league feel strongly that this will be a quarterback, but there is no consensus on which one. Since the Combine, I have leaned towards Herbert.

6. Los Angeles Chargers – Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
We aren’t talking enough about Tagovailoa and the potential of him dropping farther than this due to the durability and medical concerns. Each team has its own appetite for risk and we don’t know how the Chargers feel, but it might be worth the risk for that organization.

7. Carolina Panthers – Isaiah Simmons, LB, Clemson
As Matt Rhule builds the roster his way, he is looking for dynamic athletes with football character and Simmons falls in that category. And especially with the retirement of Luke Kuechly, Simmons brings another impact player who can fill multiple roles.

8. Arizona Cardinals – Derrick Brown, DT, Auburn
There is a good chance this pick comes down to the trenches, either offensive or defensive line. And while I think upgrading the right tackle spot should be the priority, the Cardinals have been searching for that hog molly on the defensive line who can help reset the line of scrimmage.

9. Jacksonville Jaguars – CJ Henderson, CB, Florida
The Jaguars cornerback depth chart is a group of replacement-level players and Henderson is worthy of top-10 consideration so this pick is about talent and need. Henderson with his 4.3 speed and 6-1 size won’t be available when Jacksonville drafts again at No. 20

10. Cleveland Browns – Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville
The Browns made a sizable upgrade at right tackle with the signing of Jack Conklin, but left tackle remains a large question mark. You could make an argument for any of these top tackles here or even a trade down for a player like Ezra Cleveland, but I think Becton fits what they want on offense.

11. New York Jets – Jedrick Wills, OT, Alabama
The Jets have a solid interior line, but the tackles are still an area that needs to be addressed. The biggest concern with Wills is he has been a right tackle only his entire life so a move to left tackle would be a projection, but he has all the talent to make the move and thrive.

12. Las Vegas Raiders – CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma
If Henderson is still available, I could easily see the Raiders going CB and then WR with their two first-round picks. But with him off the board, they get their choice of the top receiver and Lamb seems to be a great fit with his ball skills, football IQ and YAC skills.

13. San Francisco 49ers (from IND) – Henry Ruggs, WR, Alabama
The 49ers will be hunting for another offensive playmaker in this draft and Ruggs could be that guy. He is a ridiculous athlete who could be a lot of fun in Kyle Shanahan’s offense, forcing defenses to account for him, Deebo Samuel and George Kittle.

14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia
The Buccaneers know they have a window to win right now and the best way to do that is help protect Tom Brady. Right tackle is currently a question spot, but Thomas would give them immediate depth with the potential to be a high-end starter.

15. Denver Broncos – Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama
The Broncos are looking for another playmaker opposite Courtland Sutton and I hear they really like CeeDee Lamb and Denzel Mims. But they also really like Jerry Jeudy with his brake-and-balance skills to uncover at will mid-route.

16. Atlanta Falcons – K’Lavon Chaisson, Edge, LSU
The Falcons were busy in free agency as they looked to upgrade at edge rusher, but they are far from set at the position. Chaisson is similar to Vic Beasley in some ways, but he has the potential for more diversity as an NFL player, both rushing the passer and dropping in space.

17. Dallas Cowboys – Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama
The Falcons break the Cowboys heart because Chaisson is who Dallas wants. And with their top two options (Chaisson, Henderson) off the board, I think the Cowboys’ focus might shift to the Alabama secondary where Diggs or Xavier McKinney make sense.

18. Miami Dolphins (from PIT) – Austin Jackson, OT, USC
Regardless of which quarterback the Dolphins draft, Miami needs to add reinforcements at tackle to help protect him. Jackson will make youthful mistakes as a rookie, but he might also outplay his draft spot if he lives up to his immense potential.

19. Las Vegas Raiders (from CHI) – A.J. Terrell, CB, Clemson
The Raiders-Clemson pipeline is alive and well. Terrell is a big-bodied corner with speed to stay attached to routes up and down the field. His last college game wasn’t pretty vs. LSU’s Ja’Marr Chase, but his body of work as a player could land him in the top-25.

20. Jacksonville Jaguars (from LAR) – Javon Kinlaw, DT, South Carolina
Kinlaw isn’t the most clean prospect with his average production and minor medical concerns, but his talent is unquestioned. The Jaguars went to the SEC with their first two picks last year (Josh Allen and Jawaan Taylor) and they might do it again with Henderson and Kinlaw.

21. Philadelphia Eagles – Kenneth Murray, LB, Oklahoma
Under Howie Roseman, the Eagles traditionally draft the best player available at a position of relative need in the first round and Murray fits that criteria. He can be late to sort at times, but his play speed and competitive energy will quickly make him a fan favorite in Philadelphia.

22. Minnesota Vikings (from BUF) – Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor
With the first-rounder they received from Buffalo in the Stefon Diggs trade, the Vikings might turn around and add his replacement at receiver. No player has helped himself more since the end of the season than Mims, who several teams grade as a top-25 caliber prospect in this draft.

23. New England Patriots – Marlon Davidson, DL, Auburn
Some NFL scouts see Davidson as a “Jumbo” end while others see a penetrating three-technique. I’m guessing Bill Belichick sees a natural disruptor who offers inside-outside versatility in his front. His balance and hand use allow him to shake free from blockers.

24. New Orleans Saints – Patrick Queen, LB, LSU
Queen was one of the top prep athletes in Louisiana and was a critical piece of LSU’s national championship team this past season. Being drafted to his home state Saints would be a great next chapter in his story, giving New Orleans an explosive and rangy defender.

25. Minnesota Vikings – Ezra Cleveland, OT, Boise State
The Vikings drafted one of this year’s top risers with their initial first-rounder and they take another riser here. Cleveland played the entire 2019 season with a turf toe issue and still produced quality tape. That combined with his testing and football character and he has a great shot of landing in Round One.

26. Miami Dolphins (from HOU) – J.K. Dobbins, RB, Ohio State
It is tough to find landing spots for running backs in this year’s first round, but the Dolphins could be one of the destinations. Brian Flores is looking for a tone-setting back who can help create an offensive identity and Dobbins fits that mold.

27. Seattle Seahawks – Josh Uche, Edge, Michigan
The Seahawks are always a wild card on draft day so I wouldn’t be surprised to see a stunner here like Wisconsin’s Jonathan Taylor. But I’m going with Uche, who gives Seattle an explosive edge threat and a player just scratching the surface of his ability.

28. Baltimore Ravens – Zack Baun, LB, Wisconsin
Although he was almost exclusively a rusher at Wisconsin, Baun showed flashes of being able to do everything for the Badgers. He can be an off-ball linebacker for the Ravens while also giving them blitzing options on subpackages.

29. Tennessee Titans – Yetur Gross-Matos, Edge, Penn State
The Titans added Vic Beasley and Harold Landry is a promising player, but more edge rushing depth is needed in Tennessee. Gross-Matos has the versatile talent where he can stand up, put his hand on the ground or even reduce inside as a three-technique in some packages – the type of versatility that will appeal to Mike Vrabel.

30. Green Bay Packers – Justin Jefferson, WR, LSU
The Packers traditionally are a team that waits until Day 2 to draft receivers (Javon Walker in 2002 is the only receiver Green Bay has drafted in the first round since 1989). But it will be tough to pass up a talent like Jefferson and the impact he would make on the Packers’ offense.

31. San Francisco 49ers – Cesar Ruiz, iOL, Michigan
With the 49ers not picking again until the fifth round, good bet they look to trade back (maybe for a team looking to trade up for Jordan Love?). But if they stay put, upgrading the interior offensive line is on the priority list and Ruiz has big upside as a center-guard.

32. Kansas City Chiefs – Jaylon Johnson, CB, Utah
After Okudah and Henderson, there are differing opinions about the order the next corners will come off the board. And Johnson is right there in the mix to be drafted in the first round.

Second Round

33. Cincinnati Bengals – Josh Jones, OT, Houston
34. Indianapolis Colts (from WAS) – Jordan Love, QB, Utah State
There is a good chance a team trades into the first round to draft Love, but that could be the Colts or he could fall to them in the second round, giving the organization a quarterback succession plan for the future.

35. Detroit Lions – Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin
36. New York Giants – A.J. Epenesa, Edge, Iowa
37. Los Angeles Chargers – Brandon Aiyuk, WR, Arizona State
38. Carolina Panthers – Kristian Fulton, CB, LSU
39. Miami Dolphins – Xavier McKinney, DS, Alabama
40. Houston Texans (from ARI) – Ross Blacklock, DT, TCU
41. Cleveland Browns – Jeremy Chinn, DS, Southern Illinois
42. Jacksonville Jaguars – Grant Delpit, DS, LSU
43. Chicago Bears (from LVR) – Lloyd Cushenberry, iOL, LSU
44. Indianapolis Colts – Michael Pittman, WR, USC
Of all the picks in this mock draft, this might be my favorite fit. The Colts are looking for players with high football character and Pittman also fits the mold of the power forward receiver who can outrebound the football downfield.

45. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – D’Andre Swift, RB, Georgia
46. Denver Broncos – Noah Igbinoghene, CB, Auburn
47. Atlanta Falcons – Jordan Elliott, DT, Missouri
48. New York Jets – Laviska Shenault, WR, Colorado
49. Pittsburgh Steelers – Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, LSU
50. Chicago Bears – Curtis Weaver, Edge, Boise State
51. Dallas Cowboys – Terrell Lewis, Edge, Alabama
52. Los Angeles Rams – Tee Higgins, WR, Clemson
The Rams unloaded Brandin Cooks, but with Cooper Kupp best in the slot, they might be looking for an outside receiver who can be a matchup type downfield. Higgins has the catch radius and reflexes to be a specialized weapon in the NFL.

53. Philadelphia Eagles – Jalen Reagor, WR, TCU
54. Buffalo Bills – Jeff Gladney, CB, TCU
55. Baltimore Ravens (from ATL) – KJ Hamler, WR, Penn State
56. Miami Dolphins (from NO) – Jonathan Greenard, Edge, Florida
57. Los Angeles Rams – Isaiah Wilson, OT, Georgia
Wilson is a tough player to get a read on – some teams think he will be a first-round pick while others think he falls outside the top 50. He falls a little in this scenario, but that works out for the Rams, who find their eventual replacement for Andrew Whitworth.

58. Minnesota Vikings – Antoine Winfield Jr., DS, Minnesota
59. Seattle Seahawks – Kyle Dugger, DS, Lenoir-Rhyne
60. Baltimore Ravens – Robert Hunt, iOL, Louisiana
61. Tennessee Titans – Damon Arnette, CB, Ohio State
62. Green Bay Packers – Ben Bartch, OT, St. John’s (Minn.)
63. Kansas City Chiefs (from SF) – Chase Claypool, WR/TE, Notre Dame
The Chiefs have plenty of bodies at the receiver position, but Claypool gives them a different type of pass catcher who can play inside or outside and provide immediate depth at the receiver and tight end positions.

64. Seattle Seahawks (from KC) – Matt Peart, OT, Connecticut

If the draft broke this way, I'd prefer this:

1-16) Trevon Diggs, CB

2-47) Curtis Weaver or Terrell Lewis, EDGE (I'd prefer Lewis, but I know Weaver has his supporters)

3-78) Logan Wilson, Swiss Army Knife

4-119) Lynn Bowden, WR

4-143) Brycen Hopkins, TE

7-228) Cale Garrett, MLB

In this mock, Eason goes 3-76 to Tampa. So, they're linked together yet again.


Just looked at Eason's draft profile.


One of his comparisons is Carson Palmer. If accurate, it makes sense for Arians to draft him because Palmer did really well for sometime in his system. Getting someone similar to him but much younger to develop could be nice.


Didn't realize Carson Palmer was 6'5 and 235 lbs. He sure didn't look that big on the football field for some reason lol.

If the board is going to look at all like this I want the magical 1st for two 2nd's trade option.

Could get Blacklock, Delpit, Lewis in the 2nd and the use the 3rd for CB and 4th for WR/RB.

Not digging what's left at 16 excluding maybe Kinlaw.

Yeah, we're about a week away from finding out the real top half of the draft as opposed to the one that draft analysts have been saying. I suspect some players like Diggs, Jackson, and Terrell won't actually be there for us. Queen might be underrated, too.

Yeah, used to like the Dallas area (Gosselin?) consensus top 100.  That was great.

My hope, since we've painted ourselves in a bit of a corner with regards to need is that a bunch of QB, OT, WR go in the top half.  But it's not what I expect.

Yeah, Gosselin's mocks were always based on reliable intel, which is what made them vital. He'd post that top 100 list, and like 80 guys from it would go in the first three rounds.

I'm not sure whether other teams can will the QB run into existence. However, I DO expect a run on OTs since there are so many teams who are just horrible at pass protection. I wouldn't be shocked if four are gone by our pick. If only one is off the board at 16, we've probably missed out on all our top targets.

From the few games I watched of Fromm, I’d rather roll with Benkert

man, I am a DAWG fan, but if they were to do this? I might seriously just quit watching these goofballs period. At least until he doesn't make the squad


I mean that has to be the absolute worst all around mock I've seen yet, and as you know, we've had some doozies posted here
