With the 2019 NFL Draft now just hours away, Pro Football Focus’ Mike Renner drops his final mock draft for the 2019 class. The three-round mock draft below is a predictive mock that reflects what Renner thinks teams will do, not what he would do with the picks themselves.

Renner pulled the trigger on four trades in his final 2019 NFL Mock Draft; details are listed below.

Denver Broncos send picks Nos. 10 & 41 to Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for pick No. 5

Washington Redsksins send picks Nos. 15 & 96 to Green Bay Packers for pick No. 12.

Houston Texans send picks Nos. 23 & 86 to Carolina Panthers in exchange for pick No. 16.

Green Bay Packers send picks Nos. 30, 114 & 118 to Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for pick No. 25.

Round 1

1. Arizona Cardinals: QB Kyler Murray, Oklahoma

Not buying the smoke, Murray is the pick

2. San Francisco 49ers: Edge Nick Bosa, Ohio State

From a need, talent and value (No. 2 player on our draft board), this makes too much sense.

3. New York Jets: Edge Josh Allen, Kentucky

The Jets tried to add edge talent all throughout free agency and finally get their guy.

4. Oakland Raiders: DI Quinnen Williams, Alabama

No ‘surprise’ here. Quinnen is too damn talented for the Raiders to overthink.

5. Denver Broncos (From Buccaneers): QB Drew Lock, Missouri

The first trade of the draft! After scraping the bottom of the barrel in the QB market, Elway finally has a chance to get his guy.

6. New York Giants: QB Daniel Jones, Duke

The Cutcliffe-Manning connection is too much for the Giants to pass up.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars: OT Jonah Williams, Alabama

I’m selling any chance of Williams falling. His tape and work ethic is an OL coach’s dream.

8. Detroit Lions: LB Devin White, LSU

They just went LB back in 2017, but it can still be addressed. White is too rare an athlete to pass up.

9. Buffalo Bills: DI Ed Oliver, Houston

The interior rush for the Bills is non-existent at the moment with Kyle Williams’ retirement.

10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (From Broncos): Edge Montez Sweat, Mississippi State

Sweat offers similar skillset to Jason Pierre-Paul and could learn from the veteran edge rusher.

11. Cincinnati Bengals: OT Andre Dillard, Washington State

Protecting Andy Dalton – or whoever is behind center – should be priority number one with how bad this line was last year.

12. Washington Redskins (From Packers): QB Dwayne Haskins, Ohio State

The Redskins jump the QB-needy Dolphins to get their guy to develop.

13. Miami Dolphins: OT Jawaan Taylor, Florida

They don’t have to go QB, especially considering how bad his pass protection would be if the OL is left unaddressed. 

14. Atlanta Falcons: Edge Rashan Gary, Michigan

The Falcons love athletes on the defensive side of the ball, and no edge in this class has more of it than Gary.

15. Green Bay Packers (From Redskins): TE TJ Hockenson, Iowa

Call it a ‘safe’ pick if you want, but Hockenson offers a consistent middle of the field weapon the Packers have missed.

16. Houston Texans (From Panthers): OT/G Cody Ford, Oklahoma

The Texans get antsy knowing the Giants and Vikings could be in the tackle market.

17. New York Giants: WR DK Metcalf, Ole Miss

Big and fast is a combination Dave Gettleman is likely to fall in love with.

18. Minnesota Vikings: G Chris Lindstrom, Boston College

Lindstrom is the most solid pass-protecting guard in this class with plug-and-play ability.

19. Tennessee Titans: DI Christian Wilkins, Clemson

The Titans need a complementary piece to Jurrell Casey, and Wilkins’ versatility would be put to good use in Tennessee. 

20. Pittsburgh Steelers: CB Rock Ya-Sin, Temple

The Steelers have famously stuck to their guns when drafting secondary, and Ya-Sin would be no different.

21. Seattle Seahawks: Edge Brian Burns, Florida State

No Frank Clark means no semblance of an edge rush in Seattle currently.

22. Baltimore Ravens: LB Devin Bush, Michigan

Ravens get their replacement for CJ Mosley. Bush brings some attitude to a depleted front-7.

23. Carolina Panthers (From Texans): OT Dalton Risner, Kansas State

Risner has the flexibility to start at any position along the offensive line, which sets them up well in coming years.

24. Oakland Raiders: RB Josh Jacobs, Alabama

With Marshawn Lynch retiring, the need is obvious. Jacobs receiving skills will be coveted highly.

25. Green Bay Packers (From Eagles): CB Greedy Williams, LSU

The Packers go back to the well. Williams’ fits the Packers scheme far better than Josh Jackson, who could be a candidate to move to safety.

26. Indianapolis Colts: DI Dexter Lawrence, Clemson

Nose is the biggest hole currently on the Colts’ defensive line, and Lawrence offers legitimate three-down ability from the position.

27. Oakland Raiders: WR Marquise Brown, Oklahoma

Hollywood gets to be with his cousin in Vegas. Starting him off in the slot early in his career could be the best way to get immediate production from Brown.

28. Los Angeles Chargers: S Darnell Savage, Maryland

The Chargers get their single-high dynamo to pair with Derwin James’ box prowess. That’s a lot of speed on the back end.

29. Seattle Seahawks: TE Noah Fant, Iowa

Fant’s speed down the field would be put to good use in the Seahawks’ play-action game.

30. Philadelphia Eagles (From Packers): S Johnathan Abram, Mississippi State

Abram’s run and hit ability is special for the position although he may be limited to a box role.

31. Los Angeles Rams: C Garrett Bradbury, NC State

The best scheme fit in the draft, Bradbury is an elite zone-blocking center.

32. New England Patriots: DI Jerry Tillery, Notre Dame

Length and versatility is a calling card for Patriots defensive linemen. Tillery offers both.

Round 2

33. Arizona Cardinals: WR N’Keal Harry, Arizona State

34. Indianapolis Colts: CB Julian Love, Notre Dame

35. Oakland Raiders: CB Byron Murphy, Washington

36. San Francisco 49ers: WR AJ Brown, Ole Miss

37. New York Giants: LB Mack Wilson, Alabama

38. Jacksonville Jaguars: S Nasir Adderley, Delaware

39. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: C Elgton Jenkins, Mississippi State

40. Buffalo Bills: OT Greg Little, Ole Miss

41. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (From Broncos): S Juan Thornhill, Virginia

42. Cincinnati Bengals: Edge Clelin Ferrell, Clemson

43. Detroit Lions: CB DeAndre Baker, Georgia

44. Green Bay Packers: Edge Chase Winovich, Michigan

45. Atlanta Falcons: OT Kaleb McGary, Washington

46. Washington Redskins: WR Deebo Samuel, South Carolina

47. Carolina Panthers: Edge LJ Collier, TCU

48. Miami Dolphins: WR Hakeem Butler, Iowa State

49. Cleveland Browns: DI Jeffery Simmons, Mississippi State

50. Minnesota Vikings: OG Connor McGovern, Penn State

51. Tennessee Titans: WR Emanuel Hall, Missouri

52. Pittsburgh Steelers: OT Yodny Cajuste, West Virginia

53. Philadelphia Eagles: RB Darnell Henderson, Memphis

54. Houston Texans: TE Irv Smith Jr., Alabama

55. Houston Texans: S Amani Hooker, Iowa

56. New England Patriots: WR Riley Ridley, Georgia

57. Philadelphia Eagles: C Erik McCoy, Texas A&M

58. Dallas Cowboys: S Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, Florida

59. Indianapolis Colts: Edge Charles Omenihu, Texas

60. Los Angeles Chargers: DI Khalen Saunders, Western Illinois

61. Kansas City Chiefs: S Deionte Thompson, Alabama

62. New Orleans Saints: WR Parris Campbell, Ohio State

63. Kansas City Chiefs: Edge Jachai Polite, Florida

64. New England Patriots: Edge Zach Allen, Boston College

66. Pittsburgh Steelers: WR Terry McLaurin, Ohio State

67. San Francisco 49ers: CB Sean Bunting, Central Michigan

68. New York Jets: CB Lonnie Johnson, Kentucky

69. Jacksonville Jaguars: WR Kelvin Harmon, NC State
