NFL teams got their latest shot at the top prospects from college football with the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft on Thursday night in Nashville. The first 32 picks went off the board on the first night of a three-day event that will eventually see 256 players drafted into the league.
The Cardinals used the top overall pick to select Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray, the Heisman Trophy winner who recently turned down a promising baseball career. Most NFL mock drafts, including the final ones from ESPN and CBS Sports, had Arizona going with Murray, so the decision was little surprise even with Josh Rosen’s presence on the roster.
The 49ers used the second overall pick to snag the draft’s top pass rusher: Nick Bosa out of Ohio State. His brother, Joey, is already a Pro Bowler for the Chargers. Alabama’s Quinnen Williams (to the Jets), Clemson’s Clelin Ferrell (to the Raiders) and LSU’s Devin White (to the Buccaneers) rounded out the top five.
The Giants then proceeded to surprise everyone by selecting Duke quarterback Daniel Jones with the sixth overall pick. Jones, one of the most divisive prospects in this year’s class, ended up being the second QB off the board after Murray instead of Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins, who fell to the Redskins with the 15th pick.
