TRADE NOTES
Bills 2019 Draft History
1 11 11  Leodis McKelvin CB Troy
 Draft Scout Says: With clear needs at both cornerback and wide receiver, the Bills took the player of better value in McKelvin. As you'd hope for a relatively "small school" cornerback drafted this high, McKelvin was a dominant performer in the Sun Belt Conference, but emerged as the draft's top corner with a strong performance throughout the week of practice at the Senior Bowl. The draft's most dynamic kick returner, McKelvin will be expected to play opposite Terrence McGee on defense and may replace him on special teams.
Cardinals 2019 Draft History
1 16 16  Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie CB Tennessee State
 Draft Scout Says: For the Cardinals to overtake Seattle in the NFC West, they need to be able to slow down the Seahawks' passing game. In terms of the combination of pure athleticism and size, Rodgers-Cromartie may be the best cornerback in this draft. Ranked as a first round pick by NFLDraftScout.com since August, the rest of the scouting world caught up when "DRC" was among the Senior Bowl's most impressive performers.
Bucs 2019 Draft History
1 20 20  *Aqib Talib CB Kansas
 Draft Scout Says: There is no denying Aqib Talib's talent, but considering the fact that he's admitted to failing four drug tests during his time at Kansas, the Bucs are taking a considerable gamble with this pick. Bruce Allen and Jon Gruden have shown a willingness to roll the dice with character concerns in the past and do so here. On the field, Talib's size and instincts make him a great fit for the Tampa Two scheme.
Cowboys 2019 Draft History
1 25 25  Mike Jenkins CB South Florida (From Seahawks)
 Draft Scout Says: With Pacman Jones traded for, but not guaranteed to be re-instated, the Cowboys entered the draft looking to address a lack of depth at defensive back. With the versatile Jenkins, who has experience at both cornerback and free safety, Dallas has the option of using Jenkins at whatever position they feel he fits best. The Cowboys elected to trade up as San Diego was rumored to be high on Jenkins, as well.
Chargers 2019 Draft History
1 27 27  Antoine Cason CB Arizona
 Draft Scout Says: With the versatile Mike Jenkins off the board, the Chargers went with a similarly versatile prospect in Cason. While Cason played cornerback throughout his career, his lack of prototype speed makes him a potential fit at free safety, as well. A four year standout for the Wildcats, Cason lacks the eye-popping athleticism of some of the draft's earlier DBs, but is viewed by many as a surer prospect.
Chiefs 2019 Draft History
2 4 35  *Brandon Flowers CB Virginia Tech
 Draft Scout Says: With real needs at nearly every position, the Chiefs are in the enjoyable position of being able to take the best player available. With such a run on offensive tackles throughout the first round, the Chiefs shifted their focus to cornerback, adding Flowers, who is viewed by many as one of the toughest and most instinctive corners of the draft.
Saints 2019 Draft History
2 9 40  Tracy Porter CB Indiana
 Draft Scout Says: Trading up to secure Sedrick Ellis did not - in itself - solve the Saints defensive problems. Adding an athlete with Tracy Porter's coverage skills, however, could go a long way in helping the Saints' defensive woes. Porter isn't as physical as scouts would prefer, but he has first round caliber agility and pure speed.
Bengals 2019 Draft History
2 15 46  Jerome Simpson CB Coastal Carolina
 Draft Scout Says: Jerome Simpson might have been the first player even hardcore draft fans were left looking up their notes on NFLDraftScout.com. In reality, Simpson has been viewed among the elite receiver prospects throughout the year. Considering the bizarre saga with Chad Johnson, receiver was an area of prime need for the Bengals.
Packers 2019 Draft History
2 29 60  Patrick Lee CB Auburn
 Draft Scout Says: The Packers were expected to address their lack of depth behind aging starters Al Harris and Charles Woodson early and with rising cornerback Patrick Lee, they did so. Lee only emerged as a starter as a senior, but he showed enough in his one season that teams are quite high on his upside. Coming into a situation like Green Bay, where he'll likely be able to sit and learn early, should pay huge dividends in Lee's development.
Patriots 2019 Draft History
2 31 62  Terrence Wheatley CB Colorado
 Draft Scout Says: The Patriots love speedy, physical defensive backs and in former Colorado corner Terrence Wheatley, they've found another one. Blessed with rare speed and toughness, Wheatley has been able to overcome his lack of prototype size to play well in the Big XII as both a corner and kick returner.
Giants 2019 Draft History
2 32 63  Terrell Thomas CB Southern Cal
 Draft Scout Says: The Giants were able to use their rotation along the defensive line to mask a questionable secondary. The selection of the versatile Thomas -- who has experience at both cornerback and safety -- gives the team a second athletic defensive back from the first day of the draft.
Panthers 2019 Draft History
3 4 67  Charles Godfrey CB Iowa (Panthers acquired pick and 5th-round pick in 2008 draft from Jets for DT Kris Jenkins, February 29, 2008.)
 Draft Scout Says: Carolina loves to build depth in the defensive backfield and in Godfrey they get one of the more intriguing DBs of the second day. Godfrey, blessed with the speed to remain at cornerback and the physicality to return to safety, gives the Panthers a great many options in the future.
Falcons 2019 Draft History
3 5 68  Chevis Jackson CB LSU
 Draft Scout Says: The loss of DeAngelo Hall created a huge hole in the Atlanta defensive backfield. Jackson lacks the elite speed most teams prefer, but his instinctive, physical play will help Atlanta improve their pass defense.
49ers 2019 Draft History
3 12 75  *Reggie Smith CB Oklahoma (Bears and 49ers switched positions and 49ers forfeited 5th-round pick as result of league decision regarding 49ers tampering with LB Lance Briggs, March 24, 2008.)
 Draft Scout Says: The 49ers received great value in the third round with Smith, a versatile defensive back with experience at both cornerback and safety. Having never surrendered a touchdown over his career at OU, Smith would have been a first round pick had he ran faster in workouts.
Texans 2019 Draft History
3 16 79  Antwaun Molden CB Eastern Kentucky
 Draft Scout Says: Texans fans disappointed with the selection of offensive tackle Duane Brown in the first round, probably weren't much happier with Eastern Kentucky's Molden in the third. Molden, however, has the size and speed scouts love in projecting to the next level. He could surprise.
Raiders 2019 Draft History
4 1 100  Tyvon Branch CB Connecticut (From Cowboys through Dolphins for linebacker Akin Ayodele and tight end Anthony Fasano)
 Draft Scout Says: The Oakland Raiders traded Fabian Washington to Baltimore for a fourth round pick, so they needed a corner and got good value in UConn's Tvyon Branch. Good size at 5'11", 200 pounds, he ran a 4.31 at the Combine and plays physically, not like a track star in cleats. Maybe that's why they gave up on Washington.
Rams 2019 Draft History
4 2 101  *Justin King CB Penn State
 Draft Scout Says: Possessing the athletic skills to warrant speculation as a late first to early second round prospect, King could have significantly improved his stock by returning for his senior season. King struggled in high profile matchups against the top Big Ten talent, but has obvious physical tools and was an excellent value at this point in the draft for the Rams.
Jets 2019 Draft History
4 14 113  Dwight Lowery CB San Jose State (Jets acquired pick and conditional pick in 2009 draft from Saints for LB Jonathan Vilma, February 29, 2008.)
 Draft Scout Says: Had Lowery been timed in the low 4.5s rather than the high 4.6s, the former All-American likely would have heard his name called in the second round, rather than the fourth. Still, considering Lowery's instincts and big play ability, he makes sense for the Jets -- a team looking to add playmakers in the defensive backfield.
Bills 2019 Draft History
4 15 114  Reggie Corner CB Akron
Broncos 2019 Draft History
4 20 119  Jack Williams CB Kent State (Broncos acquired pick and 3rd-round pick in 2007 draft from Redskins in deal in which Falcons acquired WR Ashley Lelie from Broncos and Redskins acquired RB T.J. Duckett from Falcons, August 25, 2006.)
Football Team 2019 Draft History
4 25 124  Justin Tryon CB Arizona State (From Titans)
Chargers 2019 Draft History
4 26 125  Paul Oliver CB Georgia (Chargers exercised pick in supplemental draft for CB Paul Oliver.)
Patriots 2019 Draft History
4 31 129  Jonathan Wilhite CB Auburn
Eagles 2019 Draft History
4 33 131  *Jack Ikegwuonu CB Wisconsin (Compensatory)
 Draft Scout Says: Moments after making one of the real reaches of the early second day, the Eagles added another player likely to have been available later. However, in cornerback Jack Ikegwuonu, Philadelphia drafted a prospect blessed with first round caliber ability, who dropped to this point after sustaining serious knee injury in pre-Combine workouts. Ikegwuonu maintains that he will be able to play this season.
Chiefs 2019 Draft History
5 5 140  Brandon Carr CB Grand Valley State
Bears 2019 Draft History
5 9 142  Zackary Bowman CB Nebraska (Bears acquired pick from Panthers for S Chris Harris, August 3, 2007.)
Cowboys 2019 Draft History
5 10 143  *Orlando Scandrick CB Boise State (From Jaguars through Bills who acquired pick from Bears for DT Darwin Walker, July 30, 2007. Jaguars acquired pick and 5th-round pick in 2008 draft from Bills for DT Marcus Stroud, March 1, 2008.)
Jags 2019 Draft History
5 26 159  Trae Williams CB South Florida
Chargers 2019 Draft History
6 26 192  DeJuan Tribble CB Boston College
Falcons 2019 Draft History
7 5 212  Wilrey Fontenot CB Arizona
Titans 2019 Draft History
7 22 229  Cary Williams CB Washburn
Bills 2019 Draft History
7 44 251  Kennard Cox CB Pittsburgh (Compensatory)
