TD's 2019 Mock Draft

One of the most unpredictable lead ups to the NFL Draft wraps up tonight. Kingsbury & Keim are about to call and either make some unprecedented history with back to back top 10 QB picks or keep it conventional. Let me pray on it.... 1.

The Chargers step up in this scenario and offer a 19' 2nd and a 20' 4th for Rosen. NFL Comp: gun-slinging Tyrod Taylor 2. Niners - Nick Bosa, DE With Thomas' intriguing late season play inside, the Niners could look for yet another edge candidate. Bosa's versatile
