Philadelphia Eagles (25th Overall) – Josh Jacobs, RB, Alabama
Pick Made by Matty Mulls
I’m going to get flack for this pick with Jordan Howard coming on board but the value for a Saquon Barkley type back for Carson Wentz to use is just too good to pass up. I’m talking about Josh Jacobs, RB from the University of Alabama.
Jacobs would be an absolute nightmare for defenses to figure out in Doug Pederson’s offense and he might even be the most complete offensive weapon in this draft. Another benefit of Jacobs is that having him on the field doesn’t tip what the offense is doing because he is a legitimate three down back.
Indianapolis Colts (26th Overall) – N’Keal Harry, WR, Arizona State
Pick Made by Derek Esquibel
A brand new weapon for the already dangerous Andrew Luck. Harry will come in and give the Colts an offense that can compete with the Chiefs for the top spot.
T.Y. Hilton was battling injuries most of last season. Leaving the Colts to not have a true number one wideout. While Hilton will still hold the spot coming into the season Harry will be able to take pressure away from him. A starter his whole time at Arizona State the guy knows how to produce. Making Luck that much scarier.
Oakland Raiders (27th Overall) – Noah Fant, TE, Iowa
Pick Made by Cameron Parker
Derek Carr needs weapons and after the back-to-back picks on defense the Oakland Raiders arguably the best offensive weapon in the draft. Noah Fant is a mismatch at tight end and gives them a player outside of Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams that can stretch the field. Fant immediately gives them a player to make the offense better.
Los Angeles Chargers (27th Overall) – Kaleb McGary, OT, Washington
Pick Made by Ty Walden
It is unknown how much time Philip Rivers has in the NFL. Last season was perhaps one of his best yet. If he can bring that again in 2019, the Chargers might be a problem for a few teams. However, the team cannot always rely on Philips to get the job done.
The Chargers were in the middle of the pack in run offense with 1,873 yards total. They will need to get that number a bit higher if they want to succeed. This is where I see Kaleb McGary coming in. He is a solid run blocker and could help the running backs on the outside get some open space.
