Two-round 2019 NFL mock draft post-free agency frenzy
21. Seattle Seahawks – Greedy Williams, CB (LSU)
Seattle lost some valuable players in their secondary to free agency. Now, they are given the task of establishing young, quality players to fill those voids. Based on the results thus far, the Seahawks are in a position to take the first cornerback off the board.
22. Baltimore Ravens – N’Keal Harry, WR (Arizona State)
Last season, Baltimore was in a position to draft Calvin Ridley. Instead, they opted for their 13th tight end in Hayden Hurst. Although Hurst proved to be valuable, the Ravens cannot afford a similar mistake. They must begin to get Lamar Jackson some weapons to throw to, even if the Ravens are the most run-heavy team in the league.
23. Houston Texans – Byron Murphy, CB (Washington)
There are only two directions that the Texans can go here: offensive line or secondary. Both areas were horrid for Houston in 2018. Therefore, the Texans go with the best available player at those needs and get a quality starter in Murphy as a result.
24. Oakland Raiders – Joshua Jacobs, RB (Alabama)
There were rumors that the Raiders were ready to bring in Le’Veon Bell, but clearly, that wasn’t the case. It’s possible that Marshawn Lynch comes back for one more season, but either way, Oakland needs to bring in a quality running back. This is not a deep class for running backs, and Jacobs is well ahead of the pack.
25. Philadelphia Eagles – Johnathan Abram, S (Mississippi State)
Philadelphia is none too happy with the Raiders right now as they had their sights set on drafting Jacobs. Nevertheless, the Eagles turn to an even bigger necessity: safety. They’ll have a number of options to choose from as well. Abram seems the most likely candidate to land in Philadelphia in my eyes, but it’s hard to argue against any of the remaining safeties with round one grades.
