Giants make head-scratching move with Daniel Jones pick (1:40)

Bill Barnwell explains why Giants draftee and Eli Manning heir apparent Daniel Jones does not project to be an above-average NFL QB. (1:40)

The 2019 NFL draft is over, and NFL Nation has you covered. Our crew of 32 team reporters breaks down all 254 picks:


Arizona Cardinals

It's officially the Kliff and Kyler show, as the Cardinals took quarterback Kyler Murray No. 1 overall. If the Cardinals want to entrust the offense to first-year coach Kliff Kingsbury, then it makes sense to give him the QB he has wanted for years. Read Josh Weinfuss' analysis for every pick.


Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons sorely need toughness up front to not only open holes in the running game but also to protect quarterback Matt Ryan, who was sacked 42 times last season. They ended up taking two offensive linemen in Round 1. Read Vaughn McClure's analysis for every pick.


Baltimore Ravens

Marquise Brown was a bold first pick by new Ravens GM Eric DeCosta. Ignoring the franchise's awful track record in drafting receivers, DeCosta selected an explosive playmaker and provided a much-needed weapon for quarterback Lamar Jackson. Read Jamison Hensley's analysis for every pick.


Buffalo Bills

Few will quibble with the decision to draft defensive tackle Ed Oliver at No. 9 overall. Oliver's selection blends value and need for a Bills team that lost starting defensive tackle Kyle Williams to retirement. Read Mike Rodak's analysis for every pick.


Carolina Panthers

The need to pressure the quarterback was greater than finding a player to protect quarterback Cam Newton. Edge rusher Brian Burns has elite speed and position flexibility, which fits what coach Ron Rivera is trying to do with the defense. Read David Newton's analysis for every pick.


Chicago Bears

The Bears jumped up 14 spots to select David Montgomery, who figures to mesh well with current Chicago running backs Tarik Cohen and Mike Davis. Read Jeff Dickerson's analysis for every pick.


Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals got their guy. Selecting Alabama's Jonah Williams gives the Bengals flexibility to craft their offensive line to their liking, and that's key after several years of struggling to fix the unit. Read Katherine Terrell's analysis for every pick.


Cleveland Browns

The Browns have acquired a top-end playmaker in Greedy Williams, who is as good in man coverage as any cornerback in this draft. The downside: Williams isn't known for his tackling, and the Browns need help in that area after allowing at least five yards after the catch on 166 receptions last season. Read Kevin Seifert's analysis for every pick.


Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys first selection was at No. 58, where they took defensive tackle Trysten Hill. They believe he can fill in the rotation in 2019 and become a full-time contributor in 2020. Hill has a quick first step and can get up the field. Read Todd Archer's analysis for every pick.


Denver Broncos

Tight end Noah Fant should have immediate impact in the Broncos' new offense. Denver's tight ends have been plagued by injuries; Fant is the fourth tight end picked by the team in the past five drafts. Read Jeff Legwold's analysis for every pick.


Detroit Lions

Between the signing of Jesse James in free agency and the drafting of T.J. Hockenson with the No. 8 overall pick, don't be surprised if the Lions run a lot of two-tight-end sets in Darrell Bevell's new offense. Read Michael Rothstein's analysis for every pick.


Green Bay Packers

Defensive end Rashan Gary is a risky pick because of injury history and lack of production, but that doesn't mean he can't change in the NFL. And the Packers had a need for speed at safety, and found it with Darnell Savage Jr. at No. 21. Read Rob Demovsky's analysis for every pick.


Houston Texans

Taking a tackle in Tytus Howard at No. 23 was the right move for the Texans, who had made it a priority to find protection for franchise QB Deshaun Watson after he was sacked an NFL-high 62 times last season. Read Sarah Barshop's analysis for every pick.


Indianapolis Colts

The Colts surprised many in the NFL by finishing 11th overall in total defense, but secondary was a legitimate concern. Rock Ya-Sin, their first pick of the draft at No. 34 overall, helps fill that need at cornerback. Read Mike Wells' analysis for every pick.


Jacksonville Jaguars

This was a dream scenario for the Jaguars. They went through several practice runs, and outside linebacker Josh Allen was available at No. 7 in only a handful. GM Tom Coughlin said Allen was "too good a player to possibly pass up." Read Michael DiRocco's analysis for every pick.


Kansas City Chiefs

Receiver Mecole Hardman could well be the replacement for Tyreek Hill if the Chiefs decide to release him given his legal troubles. Hardman is a burner in the mold of Hill, having run a 4.33 40 at the combine. Read Adam Teicher's analysis for every pick.


New Orleans Saints

The Saints traded up 14 spots to get center Erik McCoy, who should compete with recently-signed veteran Nick Easton for the Saints' starting job in the wake of Max Unger's retirement. Read Miike Triplett's analysis for every pick.


Los Angeles Chargers

With three defensive tackles on the roster, the Chargers filled the team's most obvious need by selecting 6-foot-6, 300-pound Jerry Tillery, who should help defensive ends Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram get to the quarterback more often. Read Eric D. Williams' analysis for every pick.


Los Angeles Rams

The Rams' first pick, Taylor Rapp, will provide immediate depth behind veteran Eric Weddle and John Johnson III and could quickly develop into a starting-caliber safety. Read Lindsey Thiry's analysis for every pick.


Miami Dolphins

Tackle Christian Wilkins is a great fit in first-year coach Brian Flores' versatile defense, fills one of the Dolphins' biggest needs and has familiarity with Miami defensive line coach Marion Hobby, who coached him at Clemson. Read Cameron Wolfe's analysis for every pick.


Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings made no secret of their admiration for NC State offensive lineman Garrett Bradbury, whom they drafted at No. 18 overall and see as a great fit for their zone-blocking scheme. Read Courtney Cronin's analysis for every pick.


New England Patriots

If there was one storyline that trumped all others heading into the draft, it was how the Patriots needed help at receiver, yet their history drafting early at the position hasn't produced consistent results. Enter Arizona State's N'Keal Harry. Read Mike Reiss' analysis for every pick.


New York Giants

The Giants drafted three players in Round 1, but it was the risky selection of quarterback Daniel Jones at No. 6 overall that has general manager Dave Gettleman and coach Pat Shurmur putting their reputation and fate on the line. Read Jordan Raanan's analysis for every pick.


New York Jets

The Jets passed on a rare chance to select a top edge-rushing prospect in outside linebacker Josh Allen, opting for arguably the safest prospect in the draft with defensive tackle Quinnen Williams. Read Rich Cimini's analysis for every pick.


Oakland Raiders

The Raiders addressed several needs in Round 1, drafting defensive end Clelin Ferrell (next Khalil Mack?), running back Josh Jacobs (Marshawn Lynch retirement) and safety Johnathan Abram (brings size to the secondary). Read Paul Gutierrez's analysis for every pick.


Pittsburgh Steelers

Replacing Ryan Shazier in the middle of Pittsburgh's defense required a normally conservative franchise to get aggressive by trading up, and the move to draft inside linebacker Devin Bush should pay off. Read Jeremy Fowler's analysis for every pick.


Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles like to build from the inside out, and they moved up to No. 22 overall to add a potential blue-chipper in Andre Dillard to an already strong offensive line. The replacement process for 37-year-old standout left tackle Jason Peters has begun. Read Tim McManus' analysis for every pick.


San Francisco 49ers

With the additions of Dee Ford and now Nick Bosa, the Niners believe they have supercharged their pass rush. For as much as this is about adding a top player, it's also about establishing who the 49ers want to be as a defense and a team. Read Nick Wagoner's analysis for every pick.


Seattle Seahawks

By moving back from No. 21 to No. 29 and taking defensive end L.J. Collier, the Seahawks restocked after trading Frank Clark without having to significantly overdraft to do so. Read Brady Henderson's analysis for every pick.


Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Buccaneers secured one of the best all-around inside linebackers, LSU's Devin White, who has drawn comparisons to Patrick Willis and was a strong on-field leader for the Tigers. Read Jenna Laine's analysis for every pick.


Tennessee Titans

Having their first-round pick start on the reserve/physically unable to perform list isn't ideal, but defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons has a ways to go in recovering from an ACL tear as well as escaping the cloud of a 2016 off-field incident in which in pleaded no contest to simple assault. Read Turron Davenport's analysis for every pick.


Washington Redskins

The Redskins picked up a talented quarterback in Dwayne Haskins with the No. 15 overall pick and a top-10 value pick in outside linebacker Montez Sweat at No. 26. Both players bring some risk, but there's big upside for each. Read John Keim's analysis for every pick.
