The 2019 NFL draft is less than a week away, and the outlook for the first round is still defined by lack of clarity.

Although all team requirements have come to the fore, the overall picture is overall The picture at the top of the design remains blurry. This uncertainty begins with the cardinals, who have not yet cleared their plans with the number one overall. And while several general directors have openly talked about their desire to go up or down, Brown's and Giants' dealings with Odell Beckham Jr. in March was the only swap that brought a first round this spring.

With the draft starting on Thursday, here is the last projection of USA TODAY Sports:

1st Cardinals – Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma: Draw your own conclusions about whether General Manager Steve Keim is sincere when he said last week that the team has not made a decision about what to do with the number. 1 Pick-up The mystery surrounding the selection even challenged reigning quarterback Josh Rosen, who called the uncertainty "annoying". Maybe Arizona has a surprise up its sleeve in the draft day, but Murray still seems to be the engine Cliff Kingsbury wanted to use for his accused offenses.

2. 49ers – Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio (state): With all the uncertainty still at the top of the blueprint, San Francisco's outlook is relatively simple: if Bosa is available is he should be the choice of John Lynch. With Dee Ford and DeForest Buckner already in place, Bosa could be the final installment for an impressive front four that sets the tone for the rest of the 49er defense.

3. Jets – Querns Williams, DT, Alabama: After general manager Mike Maccagnan has broadcast his desire for a trade trade, he can only hope that a team itches when it does the decision to go for a quarterback goes. If Gang Green stays here, Williams projects a kind of defensive base that would maximize the team's return with his devastation at the back of the field.

4. Raiders – Josh Allen, DE / OLB, Kentucky: Even though the Khalil Mack jokes and ridicule directed against Jon Gruden do not stop after this selection, Allen seems the best available resource to be a league-storming runner-thirsty for 13 sacks in 2018. No one's going to upset the all-American consensus for Mack, but he's making life difficult for quarterbacks with his haste, and he's still adding traits to his arsenal ,

5. Buccaneers – Devin White, LB, LSU: Tampa Bay hopes that one of the top linemen will drop here, as the run-of-the-race is from an edge threat to Jason Pierre-Paul or a replacement for Gerald McCoy which could still be cut. However, white should not be considered just a consolation prize, as its scope and skill could be educational for a defensive outlook.

6. Giants – Daniel Jones, QB, Duke: If Dave Gettleman has identified a first-round passers-by whom he can crown as Eli Manning's successor, he should not risk that quarterback between this point and the second hit of the Giants is torn up. 17. Although the move may still be surprising on the night of the draft, speculation that Jones is bound to Big Blue has been on the rise lately. Jones could be a fast-moving distributor for the seemingly Saquon-Barkley-centered offense.

7. Jaguars – T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa: Nick Foles alone will not revive Jacksonville's decay. With the addition of Hockenson, the Jaguars gave their new start quarterback a reliable and dynamic target, which is also practiced when opening holes in the floor game.

8th Lions – Montez Sweat, DE, Mississippi State: Could Sweat's decision not to attend the draft be a harbinger of a fall? The two-day Southeast Conference conference explained his change of heart by saying he wanted to be with a family in Georgia, but a heart disease seen at the combine harvester could bring teams to a standstill. If Detroit is familiar with its medical approach, Sweat would be a fitting partner for Patriots Expat Trey Flowers.

9th Bills – Ed Oliver, DT, Houston: Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane have come under pressure from their foremost four. Oliver is amazingly dynamic for a defensive duel and shows the skills that Geno Atkins should follow in his footsteps as a productive sack artist.

10. Broncos – Drew Lock, QB, Missouri: A year after the Ravens captured Lamar Jackson as heir, Joe Flacco once again looked over his shoulder, this time with his new Denver squad. Locke's strong arm and bold style of play could inspire John Elway, who should not settle for another short-term patch at quarterback.

11. Bengals – Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio (state): Is Andy Dalton about to receive the Flacco treatment? If Cincinnati wants to follow the Rams blueprint with Sean McVay protégé Zac Taylor, the franchise coach can not expect his trainer to pass a veteran quarterback in the first year that is considered fit. Haskins, who would not have to step into action after his lonely start in Ohio, could be the Bengals' best choice when it comes to catching the rest of AFC North in the long run.

12th Packers – Noah Fant, TE, Iowa: Do not be fooled by the historical reluctance of Green Bay to invest top picks in this position. Bottlenecks play a crucial role in the passing of new coach Matt LaFleur. Although this may seem high to Fant, the goal of creating the goal of mismatch would help diversify the passing game.

13. Dolphins – Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida: If you take Taylor over Laremy Tunsil as a bookend, this would provide a solid foundation for rebuilding. And if the fans are dissatisfied with Ryan Fitzpatrick as their first quarterback for 2019, let them eat cake.

14th Falcons – Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama: Ty Sambrailo will not cut it off as a jump-start for an Atlanta team that sent a message by switching its line elsewhere. Williams, perhaps the most consistent prospect in this design, would be an upgrade.

15. Redskins – D.K. Metcalf, WR, Mississippi: With all top quarterbacks on board, Washington may have to wait until a possible replacement for Alex Smith is found. The air strike could still get a significant boost from Metcalf, whose low speed and fishing radius would create opportunities for an otherwise conservative passing game.

16. Panthers – Andre Dillard, OT, Washington, US: Carolina has not been able to find a consistent blindside protector for Cam Newton since Jordan Gross's retirement in 2013, and neither Taylor Moton Still Daryl Williams are suitable for a move from the right. Dillard's extensive passport protection experience could provide Newton with the stability he deserves.

17. Giants (from Browns) – Rashan Gary, DE, Michigan: Despite his tantalizing resources, Gary could be a tricky project for NFL teams to figure out how to turn his potential into a passport Rushing production can convert (10) 1/2 sacks in three years) to the Wolverines. If available at this time, the Giants may be overjoyed to add the product New Jersey to a dull unit that has dismissed their top sack artist at Olivier Vernon.

18th Vikings – Cody Ford, OT / G, Oklahoma: Landing one of the top offensive tackles on the board and moving Riley Reiff to guard is perhaps the optimal route, but all can be taken into account. Ford, however, could jump in as a starter for Day 1 from the inside and be a tyrant in the running game.

19th Titans – Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson: It is certainly a priority for Tennessee to accelerate the pass rush, and the fluent and wise Wilkins is considered a troubling penetrator who gets on well with Jurrell Casey could mate.

20 Steelers – Devin Bush, LB, Michigan: Given the far-reaching impact that Bush's sporting might have on the Steelers' defense, General Manager Kevin Colbert should make that decision in less than 4.43 seconds The Linebacker needed to reach his position 40-yard dash

21st Seahawks – Brian Burns, DE, Florida (state): Projecting Seattle's pick seems to be a foolish task since a switch from this place would be the best way for John Schneider to give his league more choice with a total of four games. Even if the Seahawks retain Frank Clark, Burns is the kind of explosive edge frenzy that could make it difficult to part with this selection when it's available.

22. Ravens – Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma: So the 5-9, 166-pounder is not what you would imagine when John Harbaugh gets his affinity for "rough fellows." "explained. Brown could be the biggest threat to Lamar Jackson's development while providing a spark for the offense when the bottom game comes to a standstill.

23. Texans – Byron Murphy, CB, Washington: Waiting for an offensive line that has sold 62 sack-sized sacks may seem negligent, but Murphy could play an important role in a secondary side that has been upgraded must be if Houston is to compete with the AFC elite.

24. Raiders (from Bears) – Greedy Williams, CB, LSU: The next step for Oakland, having found a first-class passport, was to meet a rogue Conley, and Williams Fits fluidity with its impressive length, speed and speed.

25. Eagles – Jeffery Simmons, DT, Mississippi State: Having vanquished Sidney Jones two years ago despite the torn AC Cornerback ACL, Howie Roseman has shown he is not afraid of it to recruit an injured defender. Simmons could have been in this year's top class defensive lineman if he had not suffered the same injury as Jones, and his value here would be of considerable value to an Eagles team that could use extra depth along the front four.

26. Colts – Johnathan Abram, S, Mississippi State: Somewhat reminiscent of Jets pro bowler Jamal Adams demonstrates the search and destruction certainty of what kind of active approach and leadership qualities could make him a favorite of Chris Ballard and Frank Reich

27th Raiders (by Cowboys) – Chris Lindstrom, G, Boston College: When Derek wants Carr Antonio Brown to be used for deep throws, he needs lasting protection that the smooth-running Lindstrom can support. [19659005] 28th Chargers – Jerry Tillery, DT, Notre Dame: The bolts seem to be ready to push the AFC crown, but have to fill a gap in the defensive duel. The size and power of Tillery poses many challenges to the offensive lines, who also try to explain Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram outward.

29. Chiefs – Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson: Although Kansas City urgently needs a cornerback, Ferrell could help to improve a passport hurry following a replacement for Dee Ford and Justin Houston was replaced by Alex Okafor and Emmanuel Ogbah.

30. Packers (from Saints) – Dalton Risner, OT / G, Kansas (Kansas State): As potential successor to Bryan Bulaga in right combat, Risner could also be a regular fixture for Green Bay.

31. Rams – Garrett Bradbury, C, State of North Carolina: Finding a guard or a center to replace the starters Rodger Saffold and John Sullivan should be high on the Rams priority list stand. Bradbury's abilities are tailor-made for Sean McVay's Zone Blocking scheme.

32nd Patriots – A.J. Brown, WR, Mississippi: Demaryius Thomas's one-year deal is little more than a flyer for a New England team that needs reinforcements. Brown is still an unknown size downfield target and should find his place in New England's transient attack with his preference for short-range dominance.
