NFL mock draft 2019: Redskins, Giants get QBs; Raiders raid 'Bama for defense © Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited

The 2018 college football regular season is complete, and a flood of underclassmen are announcing their decisions to go pro next year. That makes now a great time for another 2019 NFL mock draft, just in time for the bowl and holiday season.

The teams that pick in the top 20 are updated based on current records and tiebreakers. The final dozen picks are reflective of current playoff-positioned teams and a projected playoff order of finish. The Raiders still have three picks, and for now, the Packers are the only team with two picks.

The Bears and Cowboys essentially made their first-round picks early in the form of trades for Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper, respecitvely. The Saints gave up theirs to go up and get Marcus Davenport in last year's draft.

Redskins keep losing games because of defense, safety D.J. Swearinger says

Redskins keep losing games because of defense, safety D.J. Swearinger says After not speaking to the media following the team's loss to the Texans last week, Swearinger had a lot to say after Thursday's defeat. He sounded off on Washington's recent struggles and pointed the blame toward his own side of the ball with the defense. "Frustrating as hell, man. We've lost two games in a row because of this defense," Swearinger said after Washington's 31-23 loss to Dallas, via NFL.com. "It ain't [because] of no damn offense, man. Defense. We lost the game. We lost the game on defense two weeks in a row. Defense. "If you want to be a championship defense you got to hold that weight on your back.

Before the pre-draft process revs up with the postseason all-star games, here are some viable early targets for the 29 other teams.

NFL mock draft 2019

1. San Francisco 49ers

Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State

The 49ers will earn the top pick if the standings hold, and there should be no hesitation to take advantage of their lost, injury-riddled season and add the disruptive edge rusher they need to pair with Solomon Thomas. Nick might be better than Joey overall and should be fully healthy for the draft process.

2. Oakland Raiders

Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama

Williams has enjoyed a meteoric rise by dominating for the Crimson Tide all season. He blows up a ton of plays in the backfield and is an elite inside pass-rushing prospect. He has some Aaron Donald potential with a massive frame (6-4, 295 pounds).

Amari Cooper 'looks like he's making a bid for his cash,' says Cowboys owner Jerry Jones after big game

3. New York Jets

Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama

The Jets need more receivers for Sam Darnold, but first comes improved pass protection, and that lines up with the value at this spot. Williams (6-5, 301 pounds) not only is smooth in keeping rushers at bay and his QB clean, but he also is a huge asset for the running game New York needs.

4. Arizona Cardinals

Ed Oliver, DT, Houston

Oliver might be dropping behind Quinnen Williams as the most desired interior force in the Class of 2019, but it’s not by much. He can disrupt just about everything at 6-3, 292 pounds. His quickness and burst off the snap stands out as a front-changing talent.

5. New York Giants

Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State

Haskins was not a candidate for early entry until late in the Buckeyes' season, when he had some jaw-dropping games with his big arm and downfield accuracy. He has ideal size as a strong pocket passer (6-3, 220 pounds) with the right dose of athleticism. Although his NFL-tied head coach in waiting Ryan Day will try to get him to stay, the irony is Day has prepared Haskins well to go pro now and immediately pose the most appeal in an enigmatic QB class.

NFL Draft 2019: Ole Miss WR A.J. Brown to forgo senior year

NFL Draft 2019: Ole Miss WR A.J. Brown to forgo senior year Brown had 85 catches for 1,320 yards and six touchdowns as a junior, capping a career in which he had 19 TDs and 2,984 yards receiving.

NFL DRAFT: All-time greatest draft steals

6. Jacksonville Jaguars

Will Grier, QB, West Virginia

The Jaguars are a competent young quarterback away from getting back on track, given they’re still loaded defensively and have the power of Leonard Fournette in the backfield. That’s a pretty good situation for the fearless Grier (6-2, 215 pounds) who is the kind of passer and personality Jacksonville needs as the new face of its franchise.

7. Buffalo Bills

A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss

Buffalo is cleaning up wide receiver and is giving youngsters Zay Jones and Robert Foster more of a chance to shine, but it still needs plenty more dynamic playmakers to make use of Josh Allen’s exciting, aggressive downfield throwing. Brown (6-1, 230 pounds) fits the profile to complement Jones and the deep threat of Foster as a strong-handed, reliable route runner who is tough enough to make big plays after the catch, even in traffic.

8. Detroit Lions

Greedy Williams, CB, LSU

Williams is a long, lean cornerback (6-3, 184 pounds) who has rare speed, quickness and agility for his size. He’s not the most physical player, but he’s fundamentally sound in coverage, and he uses his length well at the line to break up routes. The NFC North is loaded with big, talented receivers, so the Lions desperately need such a corner to pair with Darius Slay.

Redskins to sign Josh Johnson to serve as QB Mark Sanchez' backup

Redskins to sign Josh Johnson to serve as QB Mark Sanchez' backup Johnson, 32, hasn't thrown a pass in an NFL regular-season game since 2011 but will back up Mark Sanchez.

Bolstering either line would work regardless, but the Giants need an Eli Manning replacement plan. Get ready for a barrage of Clemson defensive linemen in this mock . Wilkins probably would have been a first round pick in 2018 if left early.

9. Atlanta Falcons

Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson

The Falcons have hit this position of late and Clemson of late (Vic Beasley), but they go the best player available route here, as a team can’t have enough edge pass-rushers in the NFC South against Drew Brees, Cam Newton and (maybe, probably) Jameis Winston. While Ferrell needs to get a little stronger and stouter against the run to see regular snaps, he can first have an impact as an explosive situational sack artist.

10. Green Bay Packers

Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky

Last year, it was the imposing athlete at quarterback who went in the first round with this name. Now it’s time for a monster, 3-4 outside linebacker to even things out on the pass defense side. Not only does Allen possess a variety moves off the edge, but he’s also versatile enough athletically to excel as a cover man when needed.

NFL DRAFT: Best first-round picks since 2000

11. Cleveland Browns

N’Keal Harry, WR, Arizona State

The Browns could go in many directions here, as they suddenly have a lot fewer holes on both sides of the ball, but it’s hard to ignore the chance to give Baker Mayfield another playmaker. Antonio Callaway, David Njoku, Jarvis Landry and Rashard Higgins have had their moments, but Harry would provide the missing ingredient of a big (6-4, 216 pounds) matchup nightmare through the red zone. He could help give Cleveland a top-five offense.

Redskins QB Alex Smith not expected to be ready to start 2019 season, report says

Redskins QB Alex Smith not expected to be ready to start 2019 season, report says Smith underwent surgery on his broken leg Nov. 19 and initially was expected to need six to eight months to recover. Smith suffered a compound fracture, which left bone protruding through his skin. The Redskins (6-6) are sitting third in the NFC East and will face the Giants (4-8) on Sunday.

12. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

DeAndre Baker, CB, Georgia

The Bucs should have their eyes on either Greedy Williams or Baker, assuming they stay right around this pick. Their secondary has been torched this season, and injuries also have been a major issue. Baker can give them the smart, physical, pressing coverage presence they need to better handle the likes of Julio Jones and Michael Thomas.

13. Cincinnati Bengals

Devin White, ILB, LSU

The Bengals have been a mess against the run mostly because of the injuries and ineffectiveness from their linebacker corps. They need an athlete who can cover a ton of ground against the run and also help them with their weak intermediate coverage. White is easily the rangiest defender in the 2019 class.

14. Miami Dolphins

Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon

Herbert has immense physical and athletic tools, much like Carson Wentz and Josh Allen. But he’s a bit raw, and there are concerns about consistent delivery with his arm strength. At 6-6, 233 pounds, he has to decide soon if he's ready to go pro as a surefire first-rounder in 2019 or if he needs a little more college seasoning.

15. Indianapolis Colts

D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss

While his college teammate (Brown) is the shorter, scrappier playmaker, Metcalf is the classic size-speed prospect at 6-4, 230 pounds. The Colts need help at wideout beyond diminutive dasher T.Y. Hilton to boost Andrew Luck, and Metcalf eventually can operate as the team’s true outside No. 1 as Hilton enters his age-30 season in 2019.

The result is an unbiased NFL Mock Draft that is superior to other mocks in the webverse, which are almost universally created by one person. After a win over Arizona, the Oakland Raiders now have competition for the top pick in the 2019 NFL Draft .

16. Carolina Panthers

Zach Allen, DE, Boston College

The Panthers found success going to BC early in the draft six years ago when they landed all-everything linebacker Luke Kuechly. This time, they could use some pass-rushing help in the form of another well-rounded, relentless player with a history of consistent production.

17. Philadelphia Eagles

Dalton Risner, OT, Kansas State

Left tackle Jason Peters has one more year left on his deal, but at 36 and with a few more injuries in 2018, there have been signs of his wearing down. Risner (6-5, 300 pounds) isn’t the dominant athlete Peters has been, but he can get the job done sealing the edge with power, leverage and technique. He also is a physically nasty asset for the running game.

18. Washington Redskins

Drew Lock, QB, Missouri

The Redskins no longer can consider anything other than a long-term replacement for Alex Smith now that the QB's playing future is in serious doubt after his major leg injury. Lock won’t last this long should both Haskins and Herbert stay in college. He has the arm to go with ideal size (6-4, 225 pounds), along with the fearlessness and elusiveness NFL teams like in an aggressive, downfield passer.

19. Tennessee Titans

Kelvin Harmon, WR, N.C. State

Corey Davis is starting to look the part of a well-rounded No. 1 for Marcus Mariota, but the Titans are still short on other reliable playmakers in the passing game. Harmon has many of the same all-around attributes Davis has, with maybe a little more speed and quickness.

20. Denver Broncos

J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, WR, Stanford

The Broncos like what they see out of Courtland Sutton, but with Emmanuel Sanders now dealing with an Achilles injury going into his age-32 season and after the Demaryius Thomas trade, they need another dynamic, outside player for Case Keenum. Arcega-Whiteside (6-3, 225 pounds) can both stretch the field as a deep threat and fight to win battles in the red zone.

NFL DRAFT: Each team's worst ever regret

21. Minnesota Vikings

Dre’Mont Jones, DT, Ohio State

The Vikings with Mike Zimmer can never stop adding forces to their front seven. Bosa has gotten more of the spotlight at Ohio State, but Jones has great inside pass-rush skills, and even showed off his big-man athleticism with a pick-six against TCU. He can be a natural replacement for Sheldon Richardson, who was signed for only one season.

22. Baltimore Ravens

Jachai Polite, EDGE, Florida

The Ravens need to find their true successor to Terrell Suggs. Polite stands out as that guy to target at this part in the draft. At 6-2, 242 pounds, he’s not as big as Suggs, but his speed and athleticism are off the charts as a sudden pass-rushing freak who channels some of former Gator Jevon Kearse.

23. Pittsburgh Steelers

Byron Murphy, CB, Washington

The Steelers have Joe Haden holding down one outside spot and Mike Hilton balling in the slot, but they could use another smooth, fluid cover man outside. What Murphy gives up in size and press potential (5-11, 170 pounds) he makes up for in speed, aggressiveness and ball-hawking skills.

24. Seattle Seahawks

Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss

The Seahawks have helped their line by going to a run-heavy approach that often features a third tackle. Now it's time to address the edge in the right way. Little (6-5, 325 pounds) has the agility and athleticism to improve Russell Wilson’s blindside pass protection.

25. Oakland Raiders (from Cowboys)

Deionte Thompson, S, Alabama

The Raiders go to ‘Bama again, this time to address the hole in the back end of their defense for Paul Guenther. Thompson (6-2, 196 pounds) is the rangy playmaker they need to clean up against the pass, and he’s solid in run support, too.

NFL DRAFT: Ranking first-round QBs since 2000

26. Los Angeles Chargers

Jerry Tillery, DT, Notre Dame

Tillery has been a beast working as three-technique at 6-7, 305 pounds. He has matured well with his play and temperament to unleash his pass-rush skills. With Corey Liuget hurting and Brandon Mebane aging, the Chargers could use disruptive help inside.

27. Oakland Raiders (from Bears)

Mack Wilson, ILB, Alabama

Yes, in this mock, the Silver and Back go three-for-three with Crimson Tide players to address every level of their defense. With LSU's White off the board, Wilson (6-2, 236 pounds) is the next best prospect at the position. He has more of C.J. Mosley and Dont’a Hightower in him than Rolando McClain, Reggie Ragland and Reuben Foster in him, on and off the field.

28. Houston Texans

Kris Boyd, CB, Texas

The Texans stay in-state with Boyd (6-0, 200 pounds), a scrappy, ball-skilled corner with good fight and technique. He makes up for his size limitations with quickness and toughness, built to win battles outside against No. 2-type wide receivers.

29. Kansas City Chiefs

Damien Harris, RB, Alabama

The Chiefs released Kareem Hunt, and both Spencer Ware and Damien Wiliams are headed to free agency. They could explore free-agent options for a replacement, but they also could wait to take Harris, a powerful back who can complement Patrick Mahomes at first and has potential to grow into an asset in the passing game, too.

30. Los Angeles Rams

Brian Burns, EDGE, Florida State

The Rams rely on Donald disrupting everything up front to generate a pass rush, but they need an impact, second-level edge player for Wade Phillips. Burns (6-5, 235 pounds) uses his length, agility and savvy to get after quarterbacks, and Phillips can help raise the level of his explosiveness.

31. New England Patriots

Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson

Wilkins is a versatile, disruptive lineman from a pedigreed championship program. That sounds like a player who should beeline from Dabo Swinney to Bill Belichick. This also fills a Patriots need up front.

32. Green Bay Packers (from Saints)

Jaquan Johnson, S, Miami (Fla.)

Johnson isn't the biggest safety prospect (5-10, 190 pounds), but he plays like it with his physicality and linebacker-like tackling in run support. He also is showing he is no longer a liability in coverage, making a lot of plays there, too. He can be the complete replacement for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

Reggie McKenzie firing is Raiders' biggest step in new direction with Jon Gruden.
