Looking ahead to the 2019 NFL Draft

NCAA Football: California at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

The ink is barely dry on the 2018 NFL Draft, but it’s never too early to look ahead to next year. Unfortunately all of the NFL Draft analysts are busy slacking off and I wasn’t able to find any full seven round 2019 mock drafts to see where the Cougs are projected.

However, I did find a mock draft from draftsite.com — which based on their names they must be experts — that has Jalen Thompson projected as the No. 26 pick in the draft. Thompson is entering his junior year, so for that to happen he would have to leave school early.

Assuming WalterFootball.com rankings match the rankings of actual NFL scouts, we can also assume Andre Dillard will get some draft love as he is the No. 5 offensive tackle with a projection of the second to third round.

They have Thompson ranked as the No. 9 safety prospect with likely draft range between the second and fourth rounds.

So, what does this mean? Well not much. Last year at this time, Luke Falk was projected by at least one analyst as a first-round pick while Cody O’Connell was projected as the No. 6 guard in the 2018 draft.

Things can obviously change a lot in 12 months.
