Two-round 2019 NFL mock draft post-free agency frenzy
16. Carolina Panthers – Andre Dillard, OT (Washington State)
Cam Newton is pounding the table for some offensive line help. One of the most athletic quarterbacks in the league, Newton has taken a beating, and it’s a wonder how much more he can take. The Panther could use a receiver, but an offensive tackle is much more necessary.
17. New York Giants – Daniel Jones, QB (Duke)
I said minutes after Odell Beckham was traded to Cleveland that the Giants would use this pick to take Daniel Jones, and I’m sticking with it. Jones has the look of Eli Manning 2.0, and it all makes too much sense.
18. Minnesota Vikings – Cody Ford, OL (Oklahoma)
Much like the Panthers, the Vikings need some help on the offensive line to secure Kirk Cousins, in addition to the run game. Ford is the best interior prospect on the board, with the versatility to play multiple positions across the line.
19. Tennessee Titans – Garrett Bradbury, OL (NC State)
The Titans could really use an edge rusher, but none on the board really fit with their scheme. Instead, Tennessee can use this pick to shore up the interior of their offensive line. Bradbury wowed spectators with his Combine performance, and his versatility would be a welcome addition to the Titans.
20. Pittsburgh Steelers – Devin Bush Jr., LB (Michigan)
The Steelers really need a wide receiver, and how ironic would it be if they landed Marquise Brown? Pittsburgh is smart though, and they understand that they can get a quality receiver later on. They also need a linebacker, and unlike wide receiver, there is a big drop from the top 2 linebackers from the rest of the class. With Devin White already off the board, the Steelers would be wise to take Devin Bush in this spot.
