2019 NFL Mock Draft: Updated Projections with Trades (Post Free Agency)

(University of Alabama Athletics)

27. Oakland Raiders (via DAL): Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Temple

In this scenario, the Raiders used all three of their first round picks on defensive prospects. While this may not be what the Raiders actually do, they should do this. The Raiders added some solid pieces through Free Agency on both sides of the ball, but this team needs a lot of help on Defense. Rock Ya-Sin is a polished prospect and could come in and start alongside Gareon Conley.

28. Los Angeles Chargers: Greg Little, OT, Oklahoma

The Chargers had a successful season last year and it is likely they will try to go all in for one/two more Super Bowl runs. Phillip Rivers isn’t young, but he continues to play at a Championship level. Los Angeles would be smart to add some help at Tackle and Greg Little would be a plug and play starter at RT and later could take over for aging LT Russell Okung.

29. Kansas City Chiefs: Nasir Adderley, S, Delaware

After missing out on the Landon Collins sweepstakes, the Chiefs will be desperate to add talent to a secondary that needs it. The Chiefs are truly a few pieces on Defense from being true Super Bowl contenders, and adding a talent like Delaware’s Nasir Adderley would be a smart idea. Adderley could make an impact right away, and he could become a solid Eric Berry replacement.

30. Green Bay Packers (via NO): Dalton Risner, OL, Kansas State

The Packers need to upgrade their protection of Aaron Rodgers. They have two picks in the First Round and at least one should be used on an Offensive Lineman. Dalton Risner would be a sound addition to the Packers offense and he could make an impact right away at Guard or Tackle.

31. Los Angeles Rams: Taylor Rapp, S, Washington

The Rams lost playmaking Safety Lamarcus Joyner in Free Agency. The Rams don’t have many holes, but this would be a big one: Taylor Rapp makes a lot of sense here. The Washington product is a hard-nosed, playmaking Safety and would be a good fit in Wade Phillip’s system

32. New England Patriots: Irv Smith Jr, TE, Alabama

Rob Gronkowski has retired and this leaves Tom Brady without a go-to target at Tight End. Gronkowski has been a focal point for the Patriots for years and they will likely look to add a potential replacement in the Draft. Irv Smith Jr. (6-2, 242) could help the transition away from Gronk and he surely could maximize his potential in the Patriots pass-friendly system.
