The Denver Broncos enter the 2019 NFL draft with eight picks — one in each round and an extra selection in the fifth. There are several needs, some more pressing than others, that must be filled. But on the whole, the Broncos’ direction will be a fascinating one to watch. And plenty of big-picture questions to ponder. Do they consider a quarterback in Round 1? If so, how much help can they get on defense and at tight end and on the offensive line? How much say does new head coach Vic Fangio have in the process? The Broncos drafted well last season, but can they carry that momentum into another successful haul? We’ve tried to take a look at the landscape around the NFL and do our best to see how things might play out starting April 25 as it relates to the Broncos. It’s hard to imagine them going an entire draft without swinging at least one trade involving picks; after all, John Elway and Co. made a total of seven trades over the past three years on draft … [Read more...] about Denver Broncos 7-round mock draft: Is Daniel Jones worth trading up for?

Next 1 of 6 Prev post Use your ← → (arrows) to browse No team in the NFL had injuries hit them worse than the San Francisco 49ers. It’s a big reason they hold the second pick in the 2019 draft. Entering the 2018-19 season the San Francisco 49ers were a trendy playoff team. They had a coach in place in Kyle Shanahan that everyone likes. In the offseason they locked-up franchise quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Then the front office was aggressive in signing Jerick McKinnon, and Richard Sherman while also drafting Mike McGlinchey, Fred Warner, and Dante Pettis. From the outside this sleeper picked looked like a solid bet to be playoff bound. Then the season happened and injuries struck. Now San Francisco owns the second pick in the 2019 NFL Draft with some holes to fill. Luckily the team has very few impending free agent decisions looming. Only safety Jimmy Ward would be considered a priority for them. Thanks to some shrewd moves over the past few seasons, the … [Read more...] about NFL Draft 2019: San Francisco 49ers 7-round mock draft
Next 1 of 5 Prev post Use your ← → (arrows) to browse With a new coaching staff ready to lead the way, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking to reverse last season’s fortune and it starts with the 2019 NFL Draft. Despite no roster moves happening yet, there is optomism in Tampa Bay that the 2019 season is going to be much better than the 2018 season was. There is a new coaching staff in place, lead by veteran Bruce Arians. He has already spoken about empowering former number one overall pick Jameis Winston and fans are hopeful he can push Winston to another level. There is talent in a lot of key areas for this team. A strong 2019 draft will help propel them back to the playoffs in a very tough NFC South division. This mock draft was done using Fanspeak’s On the Clock tool. Round 1 – Pick 5 Jonah Williams, T, Alabama With the first four picks being defensive lineman, that left the Buccaneers with complete control of this board. They could have … [Read more...] about 2019 NFL Draft: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 7 round mock draft
Next 1 of 6 Prev post Use your ← → (arrows) to browse The Oakland Raiders are ready for their rebuild, and it all starts with a massive 2019 NFL Draft. Owning the fourth pick in the draft was likely not the plan entering the 2018 NFL season for the Oakland Raiders. Neither was having three first rounds picks, but that is where they are. After the trades that sent Khalil Mack to the Bears and Amari Cooper to the Cowboys, Oakland is set up to control the 2019 NFL Draft. Owning a total of ten picks in the 7-round marathon gives Jon Gruden and company power to wheel-and-deal their way around the draft board. There are question marks all over the roster but it will start under center. Does Gruden believe in Derek Carr or will he go out and find his quarterback of the future? It is clear that he has a vision for this team, but it’s not easy for anyone to see. With the way Carr finished the season, and his massive contract, I expect him to return to be the starter … [Read more...] about 2019 NFL Draft: Oakland Raiders 7 round mock draft
