The Fanalysts have been grinding draft tape, monitoring team needs, and mock drafting since December. This 7-part mock-draft is one continuous mock draft and the final one of the season for us. We will be releasing one article per day in the week leading up to the 2019 NFL Draft.
This is a summary of the 2nd Round of our mock draft for the 2019 NFL Draft. Over the course of the next 6 days we will release one round, working backwards, until all 254 of our selections are revealed prior to the 2019 NFL Draft.

|33||Arizona Cardinals||Jerry Tillary, iDL, Notre Dame|
|34||Indianapolis Colts||Hakeem Butler, WR, Iowa State|
|Deebo Samuel, WR,
|36||San Francisco 49ers||Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia|
|37||New York Giants||Tytus Howard, OT, Alabama State|
|38||Jacksonville Jaguars||Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State|
|39||Tampa Bay Buccaneers||Mack Wilson, LB, Alabama|
|40||Buffalo Bills||Charles Omenihu, DL, Texas|
There is going to be a ton of talent in the 2nd round this year! There are going to be guys that fall into the 2nd round that will be starters or solid contributors right away in the NFL. In terms of fantasy football, there should be some juicy landing spots for prospects to land in.
Indianapolis looks to be the best landing spot for a rookie wide receiver. Regardless who lands here, they could step in and be Andrew Luck’s WR 2. Hakeem Butler has a high ceiling with his large frame (6’5”, 227 lbs.) and sub 4.5 speed. Butler still needs to develop his hands and overall route running, but if he can go to a place that will coach him up, the sky is the limit!
Deebo Samuel has been gaining a ton of hype in the pre-draft process. He showed out at the Senior Bowl and has some pretty impressive film. Samuel display good speed, solid route running and is a big threat after the catch. If he can land somewhere where he can be the primary slot receiver, I think he can start producing for fantasy right away.
It’s no secret that we aren’t the biggest Dwayne Haskins fans here at the Fantasy Fanalysts. However, this would be the perfect type of situation for Haskins to go to. There is no doubt that Haskins has a nice arm, but he needs to improve his ability to read a defense and gain some experience since he only started one season at Ohio State. If a team is willing to be patient with Haskins and really develop him, I could see a bright future for the former Buckeye.
|41||Denver Broncos||Juan Thornhill, S, Virginia|
|42||Cincinnati Bengals||Dawson Knox, TE, Ole Miss|
|43||Detroit Lions||Irv Smith Jr., TE, Alabama|
|44||Green Bay Packers||Kelvin Harmon, WR, NC State|
|45||Atlanta Falcons||Zach Allen, EDGE, Boston College|
|46||Washington Redskins||Jace Sternberger, TE. Texas A&M|
|47||Carolina Panthers||Erik McCoy, iOL, Texas A&M|
Although he is being considered the 3rd best tight end in this class, we should be just as excited about Irv Smith Jr. as we are with Hockenson and Fant. Smith was a great target in the middle of the field at Alabama due to his nice combination of speed, strength and ability to come down with contested catches. If Smith can add some mass to his frame and continue to develop as a route runner, he can easily end up as a constituent TE 1.
Even though his combine performance was a bit disappointing, I am still incredibly excited for Kelvin Harmon. Even though he doesn’t have that top end speed, Harmon is able to create separation with his aggressiveness, use of his hands and solid route running. Harmon is great football player that knows how to win with his skill set.
|48||Miami Dolphins||Marquise Brown,
|49||Cleveland Browns||Justin Layne, CB, Michigan State|
|50||Minnesota Vikings||Michael Deiter, OT, Wisconsin|
|51||Tennessee Titans||Dre’Mont Jones, DT, Ohio State|
|52||Pittsburgh Steelers||Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State|
|53||Philadelphia Eagles||Yodney Cajuste, OT, West Virginia|
|54||Houston Texans||Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss|
|55||Houston Texans||Deionte Thompson, S, Alabama|
Marquise “Hollywood” Brown is such an intriguing prospect. When watching his film, it is hard not to make the comparison to Tyreek Hill. I also see a bit of John Ross in his film. That is honestly the range of outcomes for Brown. If he goes to a team that will use him creatively, he honestly has Tyreek Hill upside. If he goes to a team that doesn’t know how to be creative with him, he could end up just like John Ross, who has done very little in his first two seasons. Landing spot and draft capital is going to be everything for Hollywood Brown.
|56||New England Patriots||Taylor Rapp, S, Washington|
|57||Philadelphia Eagles||Julian Love, CB, Stanford|
|58||Dallas Cowboys||Dexter Lawrence, iDL, Clemson|
|59||Indianapolis Colts||Jachai Polite, EDGE, Florida|
|60||Los Angeles Chargers||Trayvon Mullen, CB, Clemson|
|61||Kansas City Chiefs||David Montgomery, RB,
|62||New Orleans Saints||Jonathon Abram, S, Mississippi State|
|63||Kansas City Chiefs||Christian Miller, EDGE, Texas A&M|
|64||New England Patriots||JJ Arcega-Whiteside, WR, Stanford|
I love David Montgomery! He is currently my RB 1 in this class, based on his film and okay combine performance. Montgomery is a running back that does nearly everything really good, but nothing great. He has true 3 down potential in the NFL and can fit into role he is drafted to. If given the opportunity, he could be a solid RB 2 as early as this season.
