The 2019 NFL draft is less than a week away, and the first round is still defined by its lack of clarity.

While all team needs have come into focus, the overall picture at the top of the draft is blurry. That uncertainty begins with the Cardinals, who have not yet lost their hands on their plans with the first pick. And while several Directors-General have spoken openly about their desire to move up or down the order, the trade with Browns and Giants & # 39; Odell Beckham Jr. in March was the only change in the spring to involve a first round of betting.

With the draft starting Thursday, here is the US TODAY Sports latest projection:

1. Cardinals – Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma: Draw your own conclusions on whether General Manager Steve Keim was sincerely when he said last week that the team did not make a decision on what to do with No. 1 pick. The mysticism about the election has even taken its toll on the established boot loader Josh Rosen, who called the uncertainty “annoying”. Perhaps Arizona has a challenge over its sleeve, but Murray still seems like the Kliff Kingsbury engine would like to drive its soup break.

2. 49ers – Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State: For all uncertainty that remains on top of the draft, San Francisco’s prospects are relatively simple: If Bosa is available, he should be John Lynch’s choice. With Dee Ford and DeForest Buckner already in place, Bosa could be the playoffs for a formidable front four that could set the tone for the rest of the 49s defense.

3. Jets – Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama: After sending their will to shop back, General Manager Mike Maccagnan can only hope that some teams get itchy to move up the order for a quarterback. If Gang Green were to stay here, Williams would be the kind of defensive pile that would maximize the team’s return with their ability to create havoc in the backfield.

4. Raiders – Josh Allen, DE / OLB, Kentucky: Although Khalil Mack jokes and ridicule targeted at Jon Gruden does not end after this election, Allen looks to be the best available action for a passrush that generated a league-sausage 13 sacks in 2018. No one will confuse the All-American consensus for Mack, but he makes life difficult for Mack. quarterbacks with their speed rush, and he still adds moves to his arsenal.

5. Buccaneers – Devin White, LB, LSU: Tampa Bay may be hoping that one of the top links will fall here, because the riot could benefit from a gunshot against Jason Pierre-Paul or a replacement for Gerald McCoy, who could still be cut. However, white should not be seen as merely a consolation prize, as his reach and gambling ability can be instructive for a defense that has become sincere.

6. Giants – Daniel Jones, QB, Duke: If Dave Gettleman has identified a first round, he fits comfortably as Eli Manning’s successor, he shouldn’t risk having that quarterback snapped up between this point and the Giants’ second pick at No. 17. Although the move may still come as a surprise on draft night, speculation that binds Jones to Big Blue has recently been strengthened. Jones can be a quick-trigger distributor for the seemingly Saquon Barkley-centered crime.

7. Jaguars – T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa: Nick Foles alone will not revive Jacksonville’s abominable crime. When I add Hockenson, the Jaguar would give their new start quarter a reliable and dynamic goal that is also capable of opening holes in the ground game.

8. Lions – Montez Sweat, DE, Mississippi State: Can Sweat’s decision not to participate in the draft be a harbinger for a tumble? The two-hour full-length South East Conference election explained his heartbeat by saying he wanted to be with family in Georgia, but a heart disease flagged by the combination could pause. If Detroit is comfortable with its medical appearance, Sweat would make a fitting rush partner for Patriot’s expat Trey Flowers.

9. Bills – Ed Oliver, DT, Houston: Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane have to find suppression from their front four difficult to stomach. Oliver is astonishingly dynamic for a defensive tackle, showing the skill to be followed in the Geno Atkins footsteps as a productive bag artist.

10. Broncos – Drew Lock, QB, Missouri: A year after Ravens took Lamar Jackson as his heir, Joe Flacco could once again look over his shoulder, this time with his new team in Denver . Lock strong arm and bold play style could enter John Elway, who should not be satisfied with another short-term patch at quarterback.

11. Bengals – Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State: Will Andy Dalton get Flacco treatment? If Cincinnati wants to follow Rams’ drawing with Sean McVay protégé Zac Taylor, the franchise cannot expect his first year coach to scrape off with a veteran quarterback who tops out as useful. Haskins, who would not have to rush to action after his lonely start as a Ohio State starter, could be Bengal’s best bet on catching up to the rest of the AFC North in the long run.

12. Packer – Noah Fant, TE, Iowa: Don’t be fooled by Green Bay’s historic aversion to investing top games in this position; Dense ends will play a crucial role in the new coach Matt LaFleur’s crime. Although this may seem high for Fant, the deforming creation would help to diversify the transitory game.

13. Dolphins – Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida: Taking Taylor as a bookshop opposite Laremy Tunsil would lay a solid foundation for rebuilding. And if fans are unsatisfied with Ryan Fitzpatrick’s starting quarterback for 2019, yes … let them eat cake. [19659000] 100 largest busts: What picks appear to be whiffs?

14. Falcons – Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama: For Sambrailo will not cut it as the first right tack for an Atlanta team that has sent a message by redirecting its line elsewhere, Williams, perhaps the most stubborn prospect of this draft, would be an upgrade

15. Redskins – DK Metcalf, WR, Mississippi: With all the top quarterbacks outside the board, Washington may have to wait to find a potential replacement for Alex Smith, the antenna attack may still have a significant increase from Metcalf, whose deep speed and trapping tradition would create downfield opportunities for another conservatively fitting game.

16. Panthers – Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State: Carolina has not been able to find consistent blind protection for Cam Newton since Jordan Gross Pensions in 2013, and neither Taylor Moton nor Daryl Williams is a natural fit to move from the right thank you. Dillard’s extensive experience of passport protection could provide Newton with the stability he deserves.

17. Giants (from Browns) – Rashan Gary, DE, Michigan: Despite their tantalizing tools, Gary can be a difficult project for NFL teams who decide how to translate their potential into hasty production , as he was short of 1/2 sacks in three years) with Wolverines. However, if he is available at this time, the giants can be great by adding the New Jersey product to a nasty entity who traded away his top-of-the-line artist in Olivier Vernon.

18. Vikings – Cody Ford, OT / G, Oklahoma: Landing one of the best offensive tackles on the board and moving Riley Reiff to protect can be the optimal way, but anyone can be ready for this point. However, Ford can enter as a day 1 starter on the inside and be a bully in the driving game.

19. Titans – Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson: Conversion of the pass rate is undoubtedly a priority for Tennessee, and the floating and knowledgeable Wilkins sizes up as a disturbing penetrator that would pair well with Jurrell Casey .

20. Steelers – Devin Bush, LB, Michigan: Given the widespread effect that Bush’s athleticism might have on Steeler’s defense, General Manager Kevin Colbert should make this choice of less than 4, 4 seconds and it took the linebacker to run the 40-yard dash.

21. Seahawks – Brian Burns, DE, Florida State: Exploring Seattle’s pick seems like something of an idiot’s case, since trading from this place would be the easiest way for John Schneider to add more picks to his league-flame a total of four. Although Seahawks holds Frank Clark, Burns is the kind of explosive edge rusher that can make it difficult to share this selection if he is available.

22. Ravens – Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma: So the 5-9, 166 pound is not what you can imagine when John Harbaugh explained his affinity for “coarse guys” in the recipient. Brown can be the big game threat that is essential for Lamar Jackson’s development while giving a spark to the crime when the ground game stalls.

23. Texans – Byron Murphy, CB, Washington: Waiting to deal with an offensive line that abandoned a league high of 62 sacks may seem negligent, but Murphy may be an important pickup for a secondary who needs to be upgraded if Houston competes with the AFC elite.

24. Raiders (from Bears) – Greedy Williams, CB, LSU: The next step for Oakland after finding a premier passport should be to follow a cover magazine opposite Gareon Conley and Williams fit the bill with his impressive length, speed and fluidity.

25. Eagles – Jeffery Simmons, DT, Mississippi State: Having taken Sidney Jones in the second round two years ago despite the backbone game that ACL hit, Howie Roseman has shown that he is not afraid to play the long game by drawing up a damaged defender. Simmons could have been in this year’s highest level of defensive linemen if he didn’t have the same injury as Jones, and his value here would be great for an Eagles team who could use further depths along the front four.

26. Colts – Johnathan Abram, S, Mississippi State: Something reminiscent of Jets Pro Bowler Jamal Adams, the search and destruction security shows the kind of active approach and leadership that can make him a favorite of Chris Ballard and Frank Reich.

27. Raiders (from cowboys) – Chris Lindstrom, G, Boston College: If Derek Carr is to take advantage of Antonio Brown on deep throws, he needs sustained protection, which the agile Lindstrom can help . [19659005] 28th Chargers – Jerry Tillery, DT, Notre Dame: The bolts are ready to make a push for the AFC crown, but they have to fill a gap in defensive tackle. Tillery’s size and power will present many challenges for offensive lines and also try to account for Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram on the outside.

29. Chiefs – Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson: Although Kansas City also needs a corner back, Ferrell can help renovate a passrush located on a negative network after replacing Dee Ford and Justin Houston with Alex Okafor and Emmanuel Ogbah.

30. Packers (from Saints) – Dalton Risner, OT / G, Kansas State: A potential successor to Bryan Bulaga at the right tack, Risner may also be a fixture for Green Bay on duty.

31. Rams – Garrett Bradbury, C, North Carolina State: Find a guard or center to replace starters Rodger Saffold and John Sullivan should be high on Rams & # 39; list of priorities, and Bradbury’s skill set is tailor made for Sean McVay’s Sun Block Schedule.

32. Patriots – A.J. Brown, WR, Mississippi: Demaryius Thomas’s one-year deal doesn’t make much more than a New England team flier that needs reinforcements. Brown should still be an unknown entity as a downfield target, and Brown should find his place in New England’s attack attack with his penchant for dominating the short range.
