2019 NFL mock draft: Way-too-early 1st-round projections (Picks 9-16)

This is quite a premature exercise, but it is interesting to project where 2019’s top prospects may land. This class features some incredible talent along the D-line, as well as a cluster of Quarterbacks. Here are our way-too-early First Round Projections. The Draft order was determined based on Super Bowl odds from Vegas Insider.

Picks 1-8
Picks 9-16
Picks 17-24
Picks 25-32

9. Cleveland Browns: Trey Adams, OT, Washington

The Browns have made great additions during this offseason, but they had a major loss along the way. Trey Adams won’t likely be Joe Thomas, but Adams would be a talented blindside protector for Baker Mayfield.

10. Tennessee Titans: AJ Brown, WR, Ole Miss

The Titans could use some playmakers on the outside for Marcus Mariota. AJ Brown is one of the best Wide Receiver prospects in recent memory, and he would be great alongside the Titans 2017 top pick, Corey Davis.

11. Indianapolis Colts: Greedy Williams, CB, LSU

After focusing on improving the trenches in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Colts would be wise to add playmakers in the 2019 Draft. If the Colts look at Cornerbacks, Greedy Williams would fit that description.

12. Detroit Lions: Rashan Gary, DT, Michigan

Rashan Gary is another complete defender in this loaded DL class, and he would be a monster for Matt Patricia’s defense.

13. Kansas City Chiefs: Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia

The Chiefs need a No. 1 Cornerback after trading Marcus Peters and then not addressing the position early in the 2018 NFL Draft. Deandre Baker has shown potential to become a shutdown CB at the next level, and he would be a good fit in KC.

14. Denver Broncos: Damien Harris, RB, Alabama

The Broncos need a game-changing RB, and there likely isn’t one on their roster. This team is built to contend now, and Harris would be a great addition for a team itching to return to the playoffs.

15. Seattle Seahawks: Mitch Hyatt, OT, Clemson

Seattle waited until Round 5 to address their lackluster Offensive Line; it should be a priority for 2019. Russell Wilson needs some protection.

16. Oakland Raiders: Josh Allen, LB, Kentucky

Yes, there is another Josh Allen that could be a First Round pick. Allen, a LB from Kentucky, would be a great add to a Raiders Linebacking core that needs to get younger.
