*** 2019 NFL MOCK DRAFT (2 rounds) updated June 12. This mock draft will be updated occasionally. Check out old versions of this 2019 NFL Mock Draft in the archived mock section. Follow @walterfootball for NFL Draft updates. ***
Miami Dolphins: Shea Patterson, QB, Michigan
The Dolphins will give Ryan Tannehill one more chance in 2018 after not drafting a quarterback. Tannehill will have failed if Miami has the first-overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, so it'll be looking for a new franchise signal-caller.
Shea Patterson completed 64 percent of his passes during the 2017 campaign. League contacts have told Charlie Campbell that Patterson compares favorably to Johnny Manziel, but without all of the off-the-field concerns. I think Patterson will have a realistic shot of being the top pick in the 2019 NFL Draft if Jim Harbaugh is able to coach him up.
Buffalo Bills: Ed Oliver, DT, Houston
The Bills lost Marcell Dareus via trade during the 2017 season. Kyle Williams will retire soon. They don't have a viable replacement for either; Star Lotulelei was signed, but he'll prove to be a bust.
Ed Oliver was a highly productive defensive lineman for Houston, recording a ridiculous 22.5 TFLs as a freshman. He was a monster this season and currently projects to be a top-five pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
New York Jets: Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State
Some Jet fan e-mailers were furious that their team didn't add an edge rusher in the previous draft. My response was that this was more than just a short rebuilding process, and I'm sure general manager Mike Maccagnan was well aware that the 2019 NFL Draft will be loaded with edge rushers.
Nick Bosa has a tremendous skill set, and he has been very productive for Ohio State in 2017 thus far after recording five sacks last year.
Indianapolis Colts: Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson
The Colts, once again, should target the best player available. This time, they can focus on their defensive front, which I believe they would have done had Bradley Chubb been available.
Dexter Lawrence is a monster of a defensive tackle (6-5, 340) and is exceptional at both stuffing the run and pressuring the quarterback.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss
Donovan Smith has been a disappointment, and the Buccaneers will have to replace him at some point in the near future.
Greg "Mr. Reliable" Little was a five-star recruit coming out of high school. He's an athletic left tackle who could become a top-20 pick.
Cincinnati Bengals: Trey Adams, OT, Washington
The Bengals traded for Cordy Glenn and drafted Billy Price, but they still need help on the offensive line.
Trey Adams was a fixture in my 2018 mock before tearing his ACL. He's returning to Washington for 2018, but if he fully recovers, he'll be a top-10 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Arizona Cardinals: Rashan Gary, DE/DT, Michigan
The Cardinals failed to secure a replacement for Calais Campbell yet again, but I have to believe that general manager Steve Keim is well aware of how loaded the 2019 NFL Draft class is of defensive linemen.
Rashan Gary is an athletic freak. He wasn't extremely productive as a freshman, but he recorded five sacks and 11 tackles for loss in 2017. His teammates believe he'll be a top-10 pick.
Cleveland Browns: David Edwards, OT, Wisconsin
The Browns need to find a replacement for Joe Thomas. I have to imagine that this is something they'll target early in the 2019 NFL Draft, which has some nice tackle prospects.
Taking over for Ryan Ramczyk, David Edwards was Wisconsin's best blocker in 2017. He easily could've declared as a redshirt sophomore for the 2018 NFL Draft.
Baltimore Ravens: Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson
Terrell Suggs will turn 37 a few months after the 2019 NFL Draft. The Ravens have some nice, young pass-rushers, but it might be difficult for them to pass on a blue-chip edge player if one is available for them in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Clelin Ferrell has elite athleticism, and he could've been a top-15, or even a top-10 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft had he declared (perhaps No. 6 overall to the Colts.)
Seattle Seahawks: Raekwon Davis, DE/DT, Alabama
The Seahawks lost several key defenders this offseason, including Sheldon Richardson and Michael Bennett. A new force in the defensive interior is needed.
Raekwon Davis had a dominant performance in the national championship to cap off his excellent 2017 season in which he logged 8.5 sacks.
Dallas Cowboys: Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson
David Irving has off-the-field problems and will be a free agent entering the 2019 offseason. Considering Dallas' salary-cap woes, it could be difficult for the team to retain him.
Christian Wilkins has superior speed and athleticism as an interior disruptor.
New York Giants: Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon
General manager Dave Gettleman passed on Sam Darnol, but I have a feeling that he'll stubbornly eschew the signal-callers again, opting to always go the veteran route. I could see him going after Nick Foles as a free agent next offseason. Still, this is definitely an option.
Justin Herbert played in just eight games last year, but has some major potential. He was accurate, completing 67 percent of his passes, and he also has nice size at 6-6, 225.
Detroit Lions: Greedy Williams, CB, LSU
The Lions tried to sign Malcolm Butler in free agency, but failed. They'll need to find another starting cornerback across from Darius Slay.
Greedy Williams had a spectacular freshman season with six interceptions. Williams has great size (6-2, 182) and quickness, and he has top-10 upside.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Jarrett Stidham, QB, Auburn
The Jaguars gave Blake Bortles a new contract, but it's a team-friendly deal they can get out of easily. I imagine they'll want to after the 2018 season.
Jarrett Stidham struggled early in his first year at Auburn, but improved as the season progressed. He eventually knocked off Alabama and Georgia. Sources told Charlie Campbell that scouts have been very impressed with Stidham. You can read about it in the NFL Hot Press.
Denver Broncos: Devin White, LB, LSU
The Broncos wanted Haason Reddick in the 2017 NFL Draft, but the Cardinals snatched him off the board seven picks prior to Denver being on the clock. Here's John Elway's chance to obtain a stud linebacker.
Devin White was extremely productive this past season, logging 133 tackles. A projected running back, White is still learning the position, which is crazy considering how great he was in 2017. White is already generating a buzz for the 2019 NFL Draft, as Charlie Campbell reported in the NFL Hot Press.
Chicago Bears: DeAndre Baker, CB, Georgia
The Bears were rumored to like Denzel Ward. They couldn't get him, so perhaps they'll pursue another top-tier cornerback in the 2019 NFL Draft.
DeAndre Baker had a terrific 2017 campaign, showing great athleticism.
