NFL 2019 Simulated Draft: Here are the most important needs of the 1st round teams


The NFL draft is designed to meet the needs. People still follow the philosophy of the best player available, but after seven rounds, most teams have their needs.

It will be no different for the NFL 2019 project. After exploring some potential business options in last week's faux-projet, this week is dedicated to determining the team's needs. With each choice in this week's false draft, four needs in descending order are mentioned. They will obviously change when the free sale contract starts on March 13th.

1. Arizona Cardinals: Nick Bosa, DE, State of Ohio

Out-of-season needs: offensive line, inside defensive line, wide receiver, tight end

The Cardinals have a lot of work to do with new head coach Kliff Kingsbury. So, it is probably easier to specify what Arizona does not need to remedy the situation. In an ideal situation, the cardinals could negotiate and try to repair both lines. But the value of the first choice is lower this year, as teams may not be ranked first for a quarter. Because of that, standing there and taking Bosa makes perfect sense. But after that, the Cardinals must repair one of the NFL's worst lineups – starting with the protection of quarterback Josh Rosen.

2. San Francisco 49ers: Josh Allen, DE / OLB, Kentucky

Offseason requirements: safety, boat supporter, wide catcher, half corner

It's clear that the 49ers need to fix the high school this season. Ahkello Thompson is a solid cornerback and Richard Sherman still resists. But after them, San Francisco is lean in a corner and the team needs a constant presence in matters of safety. That's why the 49ers finished last in the Pro Football Focus secondary standings this season.

Unfortunately, the second choice in the defensive field has no value. There is a defensive front, however. Although he has taken Arik Armstead, DeForest Buckner and Solomon Thomas in recent years, San Francisco still needs quick help. That's where Allen comes in. He can play on the right side and rush on the wire.

3. New York Jets: Gary Rashan, DE, Michigan

Offseason Needs: Halfback, Offensive Line, Edge Supporter, Corner Halfback

Much of what the Jets will do will depend on how GM Mike Maccagnan assesses the offensive draft of the repechage. If he likes the tackle, he might surprise the number 3 players with someone like Jonah Williams, from Alabama. But if he does not, he could play a good shot with a hobby like Gary. He is an excellent athlete at 280 pounds and should only improve with a good workout. Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams will love moving Gary around the defensive line to create inconsistencies.

4. Oakland Raiders: Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama

Offseason needs: Edge Defender, cornerback, running back, wide receiver

The defensive tackle may not be the biggest need in Oakland after the selection of good players like Maurice Hurst and P.J. Hall in 2018. Nevertheless, the Raiders need only talent, almost regardless of their position. Williams provides it. His skills will allow the Raiders to vary their foreheads if they wish, and this will give them a player who considers the best hope of the repechage.

5. Tampa Bay buccaneers: Ed Oliver, DT, Houston

Off-season requirements: safety, defenseman, defensive tackle, offensive tackle

Much of what the Buccaneers will do in the first round will depend on the return of offensive tackle Donovan Smith. If this is not the case, a left tackle might be the team's most important need. Finding a quality defensive tackle next to sophomore Vita Vea also needs to be high on the team's list of races. Oliver can help a regular running defense and help trigger the pass from the top of the center.

6. New York Giants: Dwayne Haskins, QB, State of Ohio

Off-season needs: quarterback, offensive tackle, safety, linebacker

The offseason of New York depends on what she thinks of Haskins. If he's rated as a franchise quarterback, he is the smart choice at number 6. If in doubt, the addition of other items around Eli Manning should have priority . Oklahoma right-winger Cody Ford is the player to keep in mind.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jonah Williams, Occupational Therapist, Alabama

Off-season needs: quarterback, offensive line, tight end, safety

Many expect the Jaguars to be the landing spot for Nick Foles, the alternate Philadelphia Eagles quarterback. This is a move that will be hotly debated, but probably leaves Jacksonville looking for a first quarterback in 2020 or 2021. After the quarter, the Jaguars really need to determine their offensive line. Right guard A.J. Cann is a free agent and the entire left side was injured in 2018. A player like Williams could be used as an attacker or goalkeeper.

8. Detroit Lions: Brian Burns, Edge, State of Florida

Out of season needs: defender of the edge, tight end, linebacker, guard

In Burns, Lions head coach Matt Patricia saw a similar player to Chandler Jones, whom he coached in his first four years in the NFL. A slender athletic pass, Burns would fill Detroit's biggest hole this season. It could also be a spot for the tight end Iowa T.J. Hockenson, if he tests well next week at the NFL Scouting Combine.

9. Buffalo Bills: Cody Ford, Occupational Therapist, Oklahoma

Out-of-season needs: offensive line, defensive tackle, wide catcher, cornerback

Josh Allen faced a lot of pressure last season, and if this continues, the pressures eventually become pressures. These blows, at any moment, could become wounds. To reduce this, bills must set their offensive line, namely on the right side. Ford is a natural striker right, and he can be left on an island to take defensive action.

10. Denver Broncos: Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida

Off-season requirements: offensive line, corner half, tight end, linebacker

In exchange for quarterback Joe Flacco, the Broncos are likely to have checked their main priority this season. With a statue like Flacco in the pocket, the Broncos could better understand how to hold it upright. Beyond the left tackle, Denver has questions along the offensive line. Taylor would be a natural book.

11. Cincinnati Bengals: Devin White, LB, LSU

Out of season needs: offensive tackle, linebacker, tight end, quarterback

Let's be honest, Cincinnati especially needs a defensive coordinator, given the difficulties his team faces in hiring one. How is it that so many people refused this job?

Whatever it is, let's go back to the false project. If we see right-back-back choices, the Bengals are a bit in trouble. Both players would have a good chance of succeeding and would be worth just 11th. If Ford and Taylor are gone, Cincinnati could still defend himself with White.

12. Green Bay Packers: Jachai Polite, Edge, Florida

Out of season needs: defenseman, tight end, guard, defensive line

Green Bay needs to respond to this demand in the off-season because of its two first-round picks this year. After a defenseman, a close finish and a guard, the Packers' other concerns are more about depth and the 2019 season. That's why, in some cases, Green Bay has doubled its passes. Clay Matthews is probably gone and Nick Perry does not respect his huge contract.

13. Miami Dolphins: Drew Lock, Quarter, Missouri

Off-season requirements: quarterback, offensive tackle, defender, defensive

This is a driving effect of the ongoing acquisition of Flacco by the Broncos. In all honesty, Lock is not one of the top 10 players. Even if it is only a few places after the first 10, it is less likely to reach No. 13. The Lock game will remind fans of Dolphins Jay Cutler, for good and bad reasons.

14. Atlanta Falcons: Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson

Off-season needs: defensive tackle, offensive tackle, cornerback, guard

Here's another place where one of these good strikers might be at stake. If the Falcons decide it's the off season to go over Ryan Schraeder, it will be hard to ignore Ford and Taylor . If they are gone, the Falcons might consider a defensive tackle, arguably the main need of the franchise. Wilkins and Grady Jarrett, assuming he's wearing the franchise label or that he's re-signed, would give the Falcons a scary duo at the center.

15. Washington: Kyler Murray, Quarter, Oklahoma

Off-season needs: quarterback, wide receiver, security, guard

If Alex Smith misses the 2019 season, the quarterback will become one of Washington's most urgent needs this season. The next two months of Murray's preliminary process will be fascinating. The catches are already coming. Some think Murray is too small for an NFL quarterback, at 5-10. Some think that its size is not a problem.

16. Carolina Panthers: Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson

Off-season needs: defender, offensive tackle, security, guard

Even before Julius Peppers announced the end of his legendary career, the Panthers needed to find a pass for the off season. It is now doubly true. Mario Addison is currently the only viable defense team in Carolina. Ferrell could be in the top 10, so placing him 16th would be a good deal. He is not a star athlete for an end, but he wins with technique and power.

17. Cleveland Browns: Greedy Williams, BC, LSU

Offseason requirements: defensive tackle, offensive tackle, linebacker, cornerback

The cornerback might not seem like a question mark for the Browns after taking Denzel Ward in fourth place last year and adding veterans like Terrance Mitchell and T.J. Carrie. But considering that Ward just suffered two concussions at the end of last season, Mitchell had a broken arm and Carrie was just average. The team will also have to make a decision at the corner of the Briean Boddy-Calhoun slot machine. All this means that the cornerback is an early need, especially if a player as good as Williams slip in the first round.

18. Minnesota Vikings: Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State

Off-season needs: offensive tackle, guard, defensive tackle, half-downs

The problems of the Minnesota offensive line are well known. Left tackle Riley Reiff could move inside the guard, where Tom Compton is a free agent and Mike Remmers has been outgrown (and has a contract that makes it easily expandable). If Reiff is moved inside, the left tackle obviously becomes Minnesota's obvious need. Dillard is a smooth edge blocker who should have a good week at the combine.

19. Tennessee Titans: Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma

Off-season needs: wide receiver, edge defender, guard, quarter

Finding help for Marcus Mariota must be Titan's top priority if they think he's still the quarterback of the future in Tennessee. If they think the opposite, the quarterback raises the ranking of needs. Brown can take over the defenses with his speed and choose an area underneath. Titans simply do not have a wide receiver that can do what it does.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Byron Murphy, BC, Washington

Out-of-season needs: Second-half, corner-half, tight end, safety, offensive tackle

For such a good team, the Steelers have a lot of important needs this season. The leader among them could be the cornerback. Joe Haden has only one year left and Artie Burns has not lived up to his first-round job. Murphy has the instincts and playmaker skills that Pittsburgh desperately needs.

21. Seattle Seahawks: Dalton Risner, OL, State of Kansas

Off-season needs: defensive line, guard, linebacker, kicker

This choice may be a little boring, but it's possible if Seattle holds 21st place (which is probably not likely). Guards D.J. Fluker and J.R. Sweezy are free agents and, if they leave, the Seahawks will have to replenish the line with the best talents. Risner can play multiple positions, but his best place in the NFL may be at the guard.

22. Baltimore Ravens: Mount Sweat, DE, Mississippi State

Off-season needs: ripper, wide catcher, linebacker, backtracking

Za'Darius Smith and Terrell Suggs are both autonomous players. It may be time that the Ravens leave after a decisive pass in the first round. Sweat is one of the most talented bag artists in the repechage this year and uses his size and speed to defeat corner blockers.

23. Houston Texans: Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss

Off Season Needs: offensive tackle, cornerback, defensive line, tight end

At the exit of college, few things may seem a bit raw, but the left tackles with his athleticism and skills are not far in the project. The question will be to take the fourth offensive tackle in the first round, or the third half corner. Both are big needs for Houston, so this choice will ultimately depend on the ranks of the players.

24. Oakland Raiders (via Chicago): D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss

Offseason needs: Edge Defender, cornerback, running back, wide receiver

Metcalf is huge now. Like, scary massive. Maybe too massive for a wide receiver, in fact. Whatever the case may be, Metcalf has star potential at the wide receiver. This is one of Oakland's main needs, so the Raiders can find a big enough jersey for him.

25. Philadelphia Eagles: Josh Jacobs, RB, Alabama

Out-of-season needs: Cornerback, offensive tackle, offensive midfielder, defensive line

The Eagles obviously need to find solutions to second base, and the career of left striker Jason Peters is drawing to a close. But it will be difficult to let Jacobs pass, easily the striker of the repechage this year. Jay Ajayi is a free agent that the Eagles could miss, and the backups of Philadelphia are nothing special. Jacobs can be special.

26. Indianapolis Colts: Dre'Mont Jones, DT, State of Ohio

Out of season needs: defensive end, cornerback, wide catcher, defensive tackle

Considering that Indianapolis needs this season, none is more important than the other. The secondary player may need to be reorganized because of the free agent status of cornerback Pierre Desir and Clayton Geathers, security officer. The Colts need more capable players for a 4-3 defense at the front and a wide slot receiver that could open the offensive. Jones can be attractive as a player who fits in and provides a quick pass.

27. Oakland Raiders (via Dallas): Zach Allen, DE, Boston College

Offseason needs: Edge Defender, cornerback, running back, wide receiver

If the Raiders do not get a free pass, they must absolutely be part of it. It's tough in the last third of the first round, so maybe it's better for the Raiders to meet their two choices in the 20s. If that does not happen, a player like Allen could be in play. He is very powerful and succeeds very well.

28. Los Angeles Chargers: Yodny Cajuste, OT, West Virginia

Off-season requirements: offensive tackle, defensive tackle, linebacker, quarterback

The right tackle has turned out to be a big problem for the Chargers with the departure of Sam Tevi. Whether free or planned, Los Angeles should request an upgrade this season. This player could be Cajuste, who should move to the right after playing at the left tackle last season for the Mountaineers. If Los Angles does not re-sign Darius Philon, the defensive line becomes a must.

29. Kansas City Chiefs: Deandre Baker, BC, Georgia

Off-season needs: Cornerback, safety, defensive tackle, center

Kansas City's pass coverage, especially on the deep throws, was catastrophic last season. That's why Baker remains a regular choice for the Chiefs. He is not the fastest cornerback, but he knows how to stick to receivers. Also keep an eye out for Alabama safety, Deionte Thompson. He could be a replacement for Eric Berry.

30. Green Bay Packers: (via New Orleans): T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa

Out of season needs: defenseman, tight end, guard, defensive line

As promising as Hockenson is, it's hard to find good landing places for tight ends in the first round. Especially after having passed the first 12 choices. This is obviously a good thing for the Packers, who have one of the top 10 players in the repechage towards the end of the first round.

31. Los Angeles Rams: Jeffery Simmons, DT, State of Mississippi

Off-season requirements: safety, defender, guard, offensive tackle

This is obviously a huge and huge risk that the Rams would take by choosing Simmons. It is possible that Simmons will not play any more in 2019 after tore up his access checklist during his workout. It does not even meet what I consider to be one of their main needs. But his talent and his potential are those of a player of the top 10 in this project. The Rams must meet many needs, but Simmons could be special when he is in good health.

32. New England Patriots: Noah Fant, TE, Iowa

Off-season needs: defenseman, tight end, defensive tackle, wide receiver

As mentioned above, it is difficult to get a pass on the back of the first round. Because of this, patriots could look for one later in the project. This is probably the main need of the team. Fant may not be a leading blocker, but New England should be able to use his skills as a goaltender.
