Arizona Cardinals: Montez Sweat, DE, Mississippi State
I have the Cardinals picking Nick Bosa in my real 2019 NFL Mock Draft, so it makes sense for them to take the best edge rusher at the Senior Bowl. That would be Montez Sweat, who has been the best player in Mobile. Sweat has been unblockable this week and may have moved into top-15 consideration as a result.

San Francisco 49ers: Zach Allen, DE/DT, Boston College
I also have the 49ers selecting a defensive lineman. That would be Quinnen Williams. Zach Allen would be a nice addition to a San Francisco front, as this is a pick that could happen in the second round of the real 2019 NFL Draft. The 49ers absolutely need to bolster their pass rush.
Allen needs to develop more pass-rushing moves, but he has a nice combination of size and strength, and he happens to be a stout run defender and a quality pass-rusher.
New York Jets: Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina
The Jets can't bolster their edge rush like I have them doing in my 2019 NFL Mock Draft with Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen. The top edge players are worse than Deebo Samuel, who fills another huge need. Sam Darnold lacks play-makers outside of Robby Anderson, and Samuel could change that.
Samuel has been the best receiver in Mobile, and it's not even really close.
Oakland Raiders: Johnathan Abram, S, Mississippi State
I have the Raiders selecting Johnathan Abram with their third pick in the opening round of my 2019 NFL Mock Draft, so this selection makes sense at this juncture. The Raiders must fill a big need at safety.
Johnathan Abram is a forceful, physical run defender who has good coverage skills.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State
The best tackle available is a logical choice for Tampa Bay. Donovan Smith has been a colossal bust on the blind side, so the Buccaneers must replace him.
Andre Dillard has been outstanding in Mobile, so he may have moved into first-round consideration.
New York Giants: Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
I still think the Giants would prefer Dwayne Haskins over Drew Lock, but there's no denying that Lock has been the best quarterback at the Senior Bowl. Teams liked Lock's gritty attitude.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Chris Lindstrom, G, Boston College
Quarterback makes sense here at the moment, but with the hiring of offensive coordinator John DeFilippo, the Jaguars have to be considered the favorites to land Nick Foles. With that in mind, they'll need to protect him better than they did with Blake Bortles, which means selecting the best interior lineman in Mobile.
Detroit Lions: Amani Oruwaryie, CB, Penn State
The Lions are hurting all over their defense, and that includes their secondary. Cornerback is a big issue across from Darius Slay.
Amani Orunwariye is a big cornerback (6-1, 203) who possesses some quickness. Long speed is a question mark, but if he shows well at the combine, he could be a first-round pick.
Buffalo Bills: Isaiah Buggs, DE/DT, Alabama
The Bills just said goodbye to their long-time great defensive tackle, Kyle Williams. They'll need a replacement, and Isaiah Buggs is someone they could select on Day 2 of the 2019 NFL Draft.
Denver Broncos: Daniel Jones, QB, Duke
Charlie Campbell reported in the Senior Bowl Rumor Mill that the Broncos prefer Drew Lock over the other quarterbacks. Unfortunately for them, Lock is off the board, but Daniel Jones will do. Jones has been a bit disappointing in Mobile, but his upside should still get him into the top 15.
Cincinnati Bengals: Germaine Pratt, LB, N.C. State
The Bengals are hurting at linebacker, as there is some question about Vontaze Burfict's long-term health with all of the concussions he has suffered over the years. They'll be looking at a linebacker early in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Green Bay Packers: Juan Thornhill, S, Virginia
The Packers traded away Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, which was a surprise. They now have a hole at safety, which they'll have to fill this offseason.
Juan Thornhill is a sound tackler and covers very well.
Miami Dolphins: Erik McCoy, C, Texas A&M
I've mocked Erik McCoy to the Dolphins in the second round of my 2019 NFL Mock Draft in several updates. It's a logical pick, as the Dolphins are desperate for a center, and McCoy should go in the second frame. McCoy was great at the Senior Bowl.
Atlanta Falcons: Jaylon Ferguson, DE, Louisiana Tech
The Falcons never replaced Adrian Clayborn. I expect them to do so in free agency or the first couple of rounds in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Washington Redskins: Will Grier, QB, West Virginia
Another report of Charlie Campbell's in the Senior Bowl rumor mill linked Daniel Jones to the Redskins. As with the Broncos, the Redskins aren't getting the signal-caller they want, but Will Grier is someone they could pursue in the second round. Grier struggled a bit in Mobile, but should still be one of the top 50 players selected.
Carolina Panthers: Elgton Jenkins, C, Mississippi State
Ryan Kalil talked about retiring this offseason, so the Panthers could down the yellow brick road and select Elgton Jenkins in an attempt to Cam Newton. I think it's been a long, long time since the Panthers have possessed a great offensive line. It's imperative that they keep Newton shielded well, given his chronic shoulder problems.
