The 2019 NFL Draft has come and gone. Each team made its best judgment in hopes of improving its teams and paving the way for Super Bowl fame. As with any design, there are teams hit out of the park, and others who tried to punch square pins into round holes . In other words, we have our winners and losers. In this article, teams from both the AFC and the NFC as well as our San Francisco 49ers are crushed!
Who are your winners and losers in the 2019 NFL Draft? Please share in the comments below!
New England Patriots
I know, I know. That makes me sick too. But let's just put that out of the way: The New England Patriots had an annoyingly good design. The defending champions responded to almost all needs, and although they overruled Greedy Williams' second-round selection, I fully accept that they need to know something we do not know.
The writing of N & # 39; Keal Harry at the end of the first is just not fair. He has put many people to the top of the broad list of recipients, which says something because that class was deep. Joejuan Williams, corner of Vanderbilt. matches the typical players you normally see in New England secondary school. Former Alabama, who returns Damien Harris, is a compliment to Sonny Michel. Oh, they've also designed another quarterback who may be Tom Brady's replacement, but at this rate, they're looking for newcomers in high school, because Brady will be there for a while, if he wants to. Jarrett Stidham, however, is promising and is literally in the best position for a young quarterback who wants to play quarterback in the NFL.
The Jaguars entered the 2019 NFL Draft to use the last of the players who could provide production seasons. Their style of play requires a certain type of player and, to say the least, Jacksonville has gotten what they need. The Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen can rush the passers-by at an alarming rate and can also fall back into the coverage. The second round of the selection – Offensive Tackle Jawaan Taylor – was considered a first round talent by many and could well be one of the few steals in this year's class. These two options for the jags are as usual, and that should inspire fans and staff alike. With Nick Foles in the mix and Leonard Fournette falling one year down, we should expect Jacksonville to fight for a playoff spot in 2019.
This could be the beginning of the end when it comes to banknotes being the laughing stock of the league. With the first two picks in the draft, Buffalo sent word that they keep making progress to capitalize on the hard way of football that has shaped the team and the city for years.
At this time last year, many had Ed Oliver as the best overall perspective for his class, and frankly there was no big break between then and now. He has the skills to become a potential all-pro candidate trained by Sean McDermott and Leslie Frazier later in his career. Look forward to Oliver and Cody Ford (OT, Oklahoma) who have been anchors for their respective units for years.
The good thing What John Elway did was he did not reach for anything. In the past few years, we have seen him do just that, and it has not done much yet. Denver originally had the tenth pick in the first round, but was traded to 20th and snatched Noah Fant – one of the best offensive weapons in the class. He should have immediate effects on the crime.
Things got better for the Broncos when they opted for G / C Dalton Risner and QB Drew Lock from Kansas State and Missouri. Both players could easily have been selected between the first and the last parts of the first player. Lock has plenty of time to experience the peculiarities of the pro while the newly acquired Joe Flacco holds the fort for next season. This team is only a few seasons away from a Super Bowl and still has enough veterans on both sides of the ball to launch a wild card in 2019.
The selection of Dra & # 39; mont Jones in the Fourth Round as he is someone who could get into a disturbing presence along the line of defense. All in all, Denver's design had many "safe" picks with a plus, which is pretty much anything you can ask for.
Kansas City Chiefs
There was not much going on for Kansas City during the draft, and that was not entirely a wrong decision they met. Tyween Hill's star-wide receiver is exactly what we feared it would be and could therefore have no future in an NFL team, let alone the Chiefs. Not a good start for a team coming from a blistering season of the size of a Patrick Mahomes.
Kansas City did not have a first lap in the first lap, so they were on the clock in lap two. There they brought the probable heir to Tyreek Hill in Mecole Hardman. It's not hard to fathom hardman seeing plenty of action in attack this season and during the punt or kick return. This selection feels more reactionary as there were other players on the blackboard who could meet other needs. Apart from Hardman, there's not much to report on KC's draft class – which is not bad. But it's not good either.
Similar to the Chiefs mentioned above, there was nothing the Texans did Poor design but more – so that bad things had to happen to them and had to resort to planning B, C, D, and so on. One of Houston's priorities in this design was to get more protection for the franchise quarterback Deshaun Watson, who, as we've all seen, is a transcendent talent who just needs a little more protection if he wants to win the next one Jump in his career. Houston had things in a row, in which he wanted to take action against Andre Dillard before Philadelphia arrived and kidnapped the future Pro Bowl talent.
This led to Tytus Howard, which is not a bad thing. But if you go into a situation where you want to get a result and your second option ends (hell, maybe even third or fourth), it leaves a bad taste in your mouth, knowing that you had better . It was an average design for a team that needed anything but an average design.
Hey, the Patriots from New England were maybe the first winners on ours List Of the design, but with no comfort in it, is that the defense in their department just got a lot better. And that should scare Tom Brady, who is getting older and definitely does not want to be hit by one of those new young defensive players he has seen throughout his career several times each season.
Quinnes Williams (New York) Jets), Ed Oliver (Buffalo Bills), Christian Wilkins (Miami Dolphins) are all extremely talented defensive linemen and will absolutely give nightmares to the opposing quarterbacks. Yes, Tom Brady has 6 Super Bowls. He is great. We understand it. However, these defenses are young and hungry. You are tall. They play very fast. They are persistent. They are tired of thinking with Tom Brady that he owns the world. Tom Brady, while his team has been essentially retooled and will be ready for another run in a Super Bowl in 2019, should fear these young dollars in his own division. You will not make his last years in the NFL easier.
The Vikings had to take care of the inner offensive line exactly what they did with the selection of the Garrett Bradbury Center and the security guard Dru Samia. Irv Smith Jr. is very valuable in the middle of the second round and can form a dynamic duo with Kyle Rudolph (if the team does not trade him). The selection of Kris Boyd in the seventh round has enormous value. I had him just under the top 100 players. Overall, the Vikings drew together 12 players and most likely had several starters who could help maintain this talented squad in the post-season 2019.
Yes, faithfully, our divisional rivals are a winner in my book. This is not just about Kyler Murray, but especially the players who supported Murray. The Cardinals will be in rebuilding mode in 2019, and expectations will not be high. There will be growing pain, but you simply can not deny the value they have received for some of the selected players. From the moment Kliff Kingsbury was named head coach, Kyler Murray was in first place. The cardinals did what they had to do to get their guy. Byron Murphy in the second round win is a bargain. So on the third day, the big receiver is Hakeem Butler. Butler and Andy Isabella, along with Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald, along with KeeSean Johnson, become intriguing weapons. Add to Mr. Irrelevant Narrow End Caleb Wilson and Steve Keim did a fantastic job in accompanying the rookie pedestrian and the head coach with guns across the field. If Deionte Thompson can prove the doubters' doubts about his knee history, this draft class could potentially accelerate desert recovery faster than we think. Trading with Josh Rosen cemented a successful weekend for the red birds in Nashville.
I think that depends on your point of view on the quarterbacks. My feeling is that the Redskins have gotten the most suitable passers-by on this draft course (Do not worry, Giants, we'll get back to you soon!). Alex Smith's future is bleak at best, and Case Keenum may start the job, but will not last long, maybe not. Jay Gruden is in the hot seat and must make the best choice who will lead his offense. Speaking of offense, the team had high priority on Kelvin Harmon in the sixth round. Terry McLaurin is one of the most professional recipients in this design, and Bryce Love can make a two-headed monster with Derrius Guice (Remember Him?) That will return from a tattered ACL. Montez Sweat was my favorite rider behind Nick Bosa. The Redskins suffered too many injuries in the offensive area and did an excellent job adding more depth and competition to the mid-rounds of Wes Martin and Ross Pierschbacher. If Gruden makes his choice for the quarterback correctly, the Redskins could compete in NFC East Gruden, which could save his job.
Apart from Nick Bosa, if I had a player who was always connected to a team, Andre Dillard was the Houston Texans. The Eagles did not get this memo and instead jumped at the Texans and grabbed Dillard before their eyes. Tip from the cap to you, Philly. Dillard also addresses a great need for the Eagles and Carson Wentz, who need to play a full healthy season, especially as a Super Bowl MVP is no longer a substitute. Miles Sanders may have been due to the fact that this team has run back in the last two seasons as it will be struggling to make contact with the recently acquired Jordan Howard of the Chicago Bears. Wentz got more weapons with the selection of J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, who will add another dimension to an already offended offense. Oh yes, since the Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles, the Jacksonville Jaguars are now in need of a new backup, and they have that with Pro-Style-Passant Clayton Thorson. Hopefully, Thorson will only hold a clipboard. The Eagles only had 5 picks, but they were geared to any need for a squad only a year from a Super Bowl. That's a win in my book.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Here is a first possibility … An offensive head coach is hired and the first five picks address the defensive side of the ball. After losing Kwon Alexander to the 49ers, the Bucs unhesitatingly hit the best linebacker in Devin White's draft. New Defense Coordinator Todd Bowles returns to Bruce Airans after his days in Arizona, gaining several cornerstones in Sean Bunting and Jamel Dean, as well as the safety of Mike Edwards, the tall and lanky quarterback. Anthony Nelson will create depth and competition along the line of defense, giving Bowles another pass-rush option. It can be argued that the team should have addressed the offense more, but clearly Arians, who is one of the game's most savvy offensive minds, believes in Jameis Winston and the already existing offensive weapons.
New York Giants
Gosh, Dave Gettleman, that's going to be an offseason for many years. After defusing the talent defenses, I really did not think you could make a worse decision after exchanging Odell Beckham Jr. for a single first round, third round, and safety (Jabrill Peppers) that is not particularly impressive. However, they found another way to beat themselves when you selected Daniel Jones as the quarterback of the future. It's not that I do not like Daniel Jones, it's Gettleman's assessment of Jones as a top ten selection. I do not think Jones was a first-round choice. I understand that many quarterbacks are designed before their honest value, but Jones is just a head scratcher. Dexter Lawrence will be a great nose tackle, but again no top 20 talent. Darius Slayton was really the best thing they could do at the receiver in a draft full of it? Sterling Shepherd, Darius Slayton and Golden Tate … scary, I know. I like the cornerback selection in DeAndre Baker and Julian Love. Baker will help and love has the potential. After Baker and Love, there's not much left to love about this draft class. Gettleman might have thrown that team back instead of competing in an open NFC East division.
Here's the deal with the Lions. I do not hate their choices, in fact I really like some of the trains they did this weekend. T.J. Hockenson will be a day of the first hour, and one of the best bottlenecks will end in the last few decades. Many of these picks bring depth to the squad. But I just do not know in which direction the team wants to go. Usually, after the free negotiation and the draft, you have some idea of what a team will try to do the kickoff, but the Lions still have me asking. Any Lion fans reading this will help me. What is your team's vision with your very expensive quarterback and list of members? In a very competitive NFC North, Lions are still in 4th place … cough … cough … last place. That makes her a loser for this design.
I may have some backlash for that, but I did not like that Hawks line up this year. Chris Lindstrom had a long reach in the middle of the first lap, and instead of addressing a pass rusher, they selected Kaleb McGary after signing two offensive linemen. I'm all for addressing the Scrimmage line, especially on the offensive side of the ball. There games are won. While the Hawks chose the defensive end of John Cominsky, I felt that the position should have been addressed earlier on the second day. Again I was with the hawks at the fence and I understand if some disagree with this assessment. I assume that when Tevin Coleman left, two running backs were selected? The saints are the class of the South. Did the hawks do enough in 2019 to get a wildcard? We'll see if everything works for Dan Quinn and his company.
What is the verdict for the San Francisco 49ers?
I will not be biased … I promise. The San Francisco 49ers won their draft with their first two selections, which I think will both immediately improve their respective side of football. Nick Bosa, who I think was the best overall player in this draft class, will be a blue chip talent on the defensive line and also improve the team's secondary strength. Revenues arise when there is pressure in advance. As Nick Bosa said, "You can not double all together" and "us" are Bosa, Dee Ford, DeForest Buckner, Solomon Thomas and Arik Armstead. If this line of defense can stay healthy, it can be a deadly unit. This in turn can turn the secondary group into a dangerous group. None of this happens without Bosa in the picture. As for Deebo Samuel, I will say it again … He is one of the most prepared and physical recipients of this design class. He is a reliable pass-catcher and can be dangerous in the open field. The 49ers doubled at the receiver and found a threat to the red zone in Jalen Hurd (maybe a lap or two too high?). According to Kyle Shanahan, while Hurd was drafted as a receiver, he can be used in other ways … tight end maybe? I will not try to sell anyone if I pick a punter in the fourth round. All I can say is that the team lost Bradly Pinion and special teams are a big deal and this team needed a player. There I will stop with the punter. Tim Harris is the long and lanky corner the team wants. Will he be an answer to the CB2 spot? It's a seventh round, so your guess is as good as mine. Dre Greenlaw gives precious depth to a unit that gets stronger day by day. It's not Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman is still scary, but the arrow points up. Kaden Smith will learn from George Kittle and maybe fill the TE2 spot. He brings depth and competition to the position. Overall, I did not love every option. It was by no means the perfect design. They were too cute with a few choices, but the 49s achieved impact players and are in my book WINNERS and the list is better than in the past. 19659080] Alex nailed it upside down, guys. It will be interesting to see how Nick Bosa connects with San Francisco – the team and the city as a whole. He has already done his part and showed no restraint in answering questions about his past behavior. It will be interesting to see him continue to deal with such issues as I am sure they will continue to come.
For me, the Deebo Samuel selection could be the one that surpasses this offense. Dante Pettis has already shown that he is an enemy when it comes to making enemy defenders stupid, and Deebo (I'm referring to him as such from now on) has many of those qualities and abilities, and that's just wow , It is exciting. Imagine Pettis and Deebo walking around in circles, and George Kittle just puzzles the middle of the field. It'll be fun, trust me.
One last winner …
Nashville! All I can say is JOB WELL DONE! It looks like the scene in downtown Nashville looked exciting and electric!
Las Vegas … you're on the clock!
