2019 Draft position rating

A lot can change between now and draft day but if I had to list the strongest positions
1- Interior Defensive line- Quinnen Williams is obviously the biggest name, but there are few others that will go pretty high. Ed Oliver may drop to 5-6, but in some years he could easily be a top 2 pick. 

2- Wide Receivers- There are a couple of really big/freakish WRs and if they show up at the combine they jump up draft boards- my personal fave is N'Keal Harry, but AJ brown is a close second and there are few others like DK Metcalf/Marquise Brown and others could go high.

3- Edge rushers- Bosa/Allen/Ferrell/Gary and a couple of others make this a good year to be targeting an edge rusher. If we could land  a veteran sack specialist and one of the top 2-4 edge rushers  in this class our defense can go from bad to great overnight. 

The weaker positions

QB- I don't love Haskins. The others are OK and could become something but none impress me like the guys from last year. 

RB- Not a great RB class. Last years class with Barkley/Chubb/Kerryon/Michel to go along with some guys that emerged like Lindsay/Freeman/Hines/jackson/Samuels/Adams was great. This years class has a couple of guys that will be good NFL RBs but it's nothing like last year.

Good thing is outside of QB we need everything else so we can get a nice player at 3 or trade back and get some extra players.

Teams that need a franchise QB:

6 Giants

7 Jags

10 Broncos

11 Bengals

13 Fish

15 Skins

All these teams need QBs and all would have to move up to grab the one they want. Even if one of those teams trade to 1-2, that guarantees we get one of the top 2 players on the board. I don't love this QB class but if the Bears traded up to get the crappy Trubisky, you know someone will convince themselves that one of the QBs this year is good enough.

I disagree on the RB class.

Plenty of great RB’s to pick from this year. I think a lot of them don’t play at big programs or doesn’t get a lot of PR so the majority of people don’t know them. Benny Snell Jr, David Montgomery, Darrell Henderson, Damien Harris, Josh Jacobs, Devin Singletary, Isaiah Holyfield, Mike Weber..list goes on.

Thanks for the feedback. Any thoughts about position depth?

 

Defensive depth is apparent.  All things being equal, the 1st Round should include at least 20+ defensive players although QBs, OLinemen and others on offense may get pulled up the board into the vacuum.

Positionally, there seems to be a lot of Front 7 defensive talent.  Interior DLine, DEs and some LBs.

Offensively I think WRs seem pretty deep.  I don't know if there's a guy worth a Top 10 pick at WR....it will be close, but there seems to be depth through the mid rounds.  This is a reason I'd really like to see the Jets trade back and get a 2nd round pick.  I think moving back just a few spots in Round 1 (say to 5, 6, or 7) could net them a 2nd round pick that could be used on WR or an Edge rusher (assuming neither of those were taken in Round 1).

We need to hold that #3 pick hostage for as long as possible.  I think it will be in play big time depending on how Haskins looks at the Combine.

The challenge this year for rookie QBs is that there's going to be a crop of experienced FA QBs out there that I'd guess many of the teams you listed will sign.  Let's see what happens with guys like Teddy Bridgewater, Nick Foles, Joe Flacco and others first.
