2019 NFL Mock Draft: Updated Projections with Trades

(James Snook/USA TODAY Sports)

16. Carolina Panthers: Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, Clemson

Julius Peppers can’t play forever, right? The 39-year-old just resigned for one more season with Carolina, and this would be a tremendous time for Carolina to draft and groom and eventual replacement. Clelin Ferrell is a tremendous talent and would a great fit in Carolina’s scheme. Ferrell may be gone before the Panthers select here, but if he’s still there the Panthers should pounce on him.

17. Cleveland Browns: Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State

The Browns have made tremendous strides since their winless 2017 campaign. The only real loss they took last year was losing franchise LT Joe Thomas to retirement. Andre Dillard (6-5, 315) would be a good fit in Cleveland and it makes sense for the Browns to address their O-line in the Draft after sending Kevin Zeitler to the Giants.

18. Minnesota Vikings: Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida

The Vikings really need some new faces at Tackle. Current LT Riley Rieff may move inside to Guard and current RT Mike Remmers has not played well. It seems as if the Vikings will need two new tackles, which means drafting one early in the Draft would be a must. Jawaan Taylor is a great fit for the Vikings and could be a starter from Day 1.

19. Tennessee Titans: Noah Fant, TE, Iowa

The Titans need more pass catches, and they surely know it. The Titans were in the market for Antonio Brown and are likely looking to add a playmaker for Marcus Mariota. While a receiver would make sense here, Noah Fant could be even better. Fant is simply an athletic freak (6-4, 249, 4.5 40 time) and his pass-catching ability would be very valuable to Marcus Mariota. Mariota plays at his best when he has a go-to TE and Fant would be a great add (and eventual replacement for 34-year-old Delanie Walker).


20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Devin Bush, LB, Michigan

The Steelers have needs throughout their defense, but the most pressing would be at Linebacker. Devin Bush had a tremendous combine performance and showcased a lot of athleticism that teams covet at LB. The Michigan product could be a plug and play starter for the Steelers, and he would be a nice addition to a defense needing playmakers.
