3. Jonah Williams, Offensive Tackle, Alabama
Jonah Williams may be the most technically sound lineman in the 2019 NFL Draft. With the National Championship game, he will finish off his four-year-starter career with the Crimson Tide amongst one of the best offensive tackle classes that we’ve seen enter the NFL Draft of late. Not many people start at the University of Alabama all four years, but Williams won the favor of Nick Saban early on and hasn’t lost it since.
Williams has consistently used his technical ability to prove his doubters wrong despite his in-between size that leaves scouts questioning which line position Williams would fit best in. He’s another complete player, who can deal with just about any type of pass-rusher he faces. While Alabama typically utilizes a run-first offense, Williams has also been key in the development of their passing game with the grown use of future-star Tua Tagovailoa.
4. Trayvon Mullen, Cornerback, Clemson
Mullen is exactly the kind of prospect you would expect to go on to be a producer in the NFL in the coming years. Rated highly by most in the National Scouting media, Mullen has similar tools to some of the best cornerbacks in the league.
Standing at about 6’2”, 190 lbs., Mullen has some speed and the ability to match up with the more modern style of wide receiver. More and more guys focus on a unique mixture of height paired with speed and fluidity. Mullen has displayed excellent speed for his size and has a nice mixture of agility and strength to match up against the strong-bodied receivers of the NFL. The technique can be taught, physical ability can’t.
There are a lot of teams in need of secondary help, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see Mullen go early on in the 2019 NFL Draft.
