NFL Mock Draft 2019: Art Stapleton looks at who the Giants and Jets will select

Art Stapleton

It's time for Mock Draft Mondays.

We'll dip into your favorite past time when it comes to the NFL offseason every Monday for the next six weeks, alternating between full first round mocks and then 7-round New York Giants-specific and New York Jets-specific drafts from yours truly and my colleague and Jets writer Andy Vasquez.

Here is my complete first-round mock draft based on information gathered in reporting throughout the league, my own evaluation and analysis of team needs and player impact.

So, here I present to you Art Stapleton Mock Draft 2.0:

The story continues below the gallery.

1. Cardinals: QB Kyler Murray, Oklahoma

Still no reason to move off Murray here; could Josh Rosen be dealt to Giants?

Previous pick: Murray

2. 49ers: DT Quinnen Williams, Alabama

Dee Ford acquisition allows GM John Lynch to take most dominant college defender

Previous pick: Nick Bosa

3. Jets: DE Nick Bosa, Ohio State

Gang Green runs card to podium, Bosa would be their best rusher since John Abraham

Previous pick: Josh Allen

Ohio State Buckeyes defensive end Nick Bosa (97) rushes the passer against the Texas Christian Horned Frogs at AT&T Stadium.

4. Raiders: DE Rashan Gary, Michigan

Jon Gruden, Mike Mayock pull off surprise, bank on Paramus Catholic grad's raw talent

Previous pick: Quinnen Williams

RASHAN GARY: New Jersey native states his case as No. 1 player in the NFL Draft

5. Buccaneers: LB Devin White, LSU

White will have significant impact on and off the field as a leader from Day 1

Previous pick: Jawaan Taylor

6. Giants: LB Josh Allen, Kentucky

In a stunner, the pass rusher from Montclair falls and Big Blue passes on QB for him

Previous pick: Dwayne Haskins

Kentucky Wildcats linebacker Josh Allen (41) rushes in on Penn State Nittany Lions quarterback Trace McSorley (9, not pictured) during the first half in the 2019 Citrus Bowl at Camping World Stadium.

7. Jaguars: OL Jawaan Taylor, Florida

The Jaguars finished the season relying on Ereck Flowers. Enough said.

Previous pick: Jonah Williams

8. Lions: OL Jonah Williams, Alabama

Detroit should be able to plug Williams in at tackle or guard and roll

Previous pick: Rashan Gary

9. Bills: DT Ed Oliver, Houston

Oliver is raw, but he has the potential to be a tremendous interior pass rusher

Previous pick: Oliver

10. Broncos: QB Drew Lock, Missouri

John Elway may have dealt for Joe Flacco, but Lock is the future at Mile High

Previous pick: Drew Lock

11. Bengals: QB Dwayne Haskins, Ohio State

If Giants pass and Dolphins don't trade up, how about Haskins as Andy Dalton successor?

Previous pick: Devin White

12. Packers: TE T.J. Hockenson, Iowa

What would Aaron Rodgers throwing him the ball mean for the best TE on the board?

Previous pick: Montez Sweat

13. Dolphins: DE Clelin Ferrell, Clemson

Ferrell adds some punch to Brian Flores' defense, quarterback could land here, too 

Previous pick: Ferrell

NFL Free Agency:NY Giants continue to keep everyone guessing

Explainer:Here's why gas prices have spiked in New Jersey

NFL Free Agency:Who should the NY Jets target? The top options

14. Falcons: CB Greedy Williams, LSU

Dan Quinn needs to restock the position, especially in the NFC South

Previous pick: Christian Wilkins

15. Redskins: QB Daniel Jones, Duke

Case Keenum is a placeholder and the Redskins nab Jones, taking their future

Previous pick: Jones

16. Panthers: OT Andre Dillard, Washington State 

Two right tackles (Taylor Moton, Daryl Williams), but Dillard solidifies left side long-term

Previous pick: Dillard

17. GIANTS (from Browns): OT Cody Ford, Oklahoma

Big Blue has done a lot of pre-draft work on Ford, and he can be a mainstay up front

Previous pick: D.K. Metcalf (for Browns)

18. Vikings: Montez Sweat, Mississippi State

Sweat could go to Giants one pick earlier, but Vikings happy to add him to their D

Previous pick: T.J. Hockenson

19. Titans: OL Connor McGovern, Penn State

Tennessee needs to fortify the interior of its line, and McGovern is a solid choice

Previous pick: McGovern

20. Steelers: CB DeAndre Baker, Georgia

Baker had seven interceptions in college and did not allow a touchdown

Previous pick: Baker

21. Seahawks: LB Brian Burns, Florida State

Burns could go Top 10 if things fall differently, so Seattle would be thrilled

Previous pick: Jachai Polite

22. Ravens: WR D.K. Metcalf, Ole Miss

Metcalf owned the Combine at his position, and GM Eric DeCosta gives Lamar Jackson a weapon

Previous pick: Garrett Bradbury

23. Texans: WR Hakeem Butler, Iowa State

Don Bosco grad and Texans GM Brian Gaine gives Deshaun Watson another weapon

Previous pick: Hakeem Butler

24. Raiders (from Bears): LB Devin Bush, Michigan

Bush could be in the mix for Giants at 17; he and White are game-changers at ILB

Previous pick: Greedy Williams

25. Eagles: RB Josh Jacobs, Alabama

This one just seems to be the ideal fit for Jacobs to grab the starting job and run

Previous pick: Jacobs

26. Colts: DT Dexter Lawrence, Clemson

Lawrence could join the Indianapolis defense and have a Darius Leonard-type impact

Previous pick: Brian Burns

27. Raiders (from Cowboys): S Nasir Adderley, Delaware

Adderley may be viewed as somewhat of a small school prospect, but he's the real deal

Previous pick: Chauncey Gardner-Johnson

28. Chargers: OL Dalton Risner, Kansas State

Risner could be someone the Giants are eyeing, and teams could line up if he falls to Round 2

Previous pick: Devin Bush

29. Chiefs: S Taylor Rapp, Washington

Kansas City released Eric Berry, so Rapp can fill hole next to the Honey Badger

Previous pick: Dexter Lawrence

30. Packers (from Saints): WR Marquise Brown, Oklahoma

Brown would be a legit home run threat to complement Davante Adams

Previous pick: Brown

31. Rams: C Garrett Bradbury, N.C. State

Bradbury can step in for John Sullivan and the Rams' machine wouldn't miss a beat

Previous pick: Nasir Adderley

32. Patriots: TE Noah Fant, Iowa

Whether Gronk retires this year or not, Fant can be a compliment or take a starring role 

Previous pick: Fant
