2019 NFL Draft: Best available players for Round 2 and 3

NCAA Football: South Carolina at Florida Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The first round of the 2019 NFL Draft is in the books, and there were some surprises in the first set of 32 picks made. Clemson defensive lineman Clelin Ferrell, who was projected by many to be a 20-25 pick, was selected fourth overall by the Oakland Raiders and the New York Giants, while they did take a quarterback with the sixth pick as many projected, grabbed Duke’s Daniel Jones, considered by most to be the fourth - at best - rated quarterback in this year’s class.

There are also surprises in who is still on the draft board heading into Friday’s second- and third-rounds. One of the top names that immediately jumps out is Florida tackle Jawaan Taylor. I thought he was the pick that made the most sense for the Miami Dolphins with the 13th overall pick. I did say that, if he was already off the board, I thought Miami would add Ferrell or Christian Wilkins, and they did select Wilkins, so I partially projected the pick correctly, but I had no idea that Taylor would not only fall, but completely leave the first round.
