The 2019 NFL Draft is just hours away and the rumor mill is swirling. Ahead of this year’s draft, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported that there are currently two teams currently slated to pick inside of the top 15 that are “doing their homework” on a potential move into the top 10.
Rapoport states that the Atlanta Falcons and Washington Redskins are two teams to watch.
While it has been long rumored that Washington is in the quarterback market and could be interested in Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins or Duke’s Daniel Jones, Atlanta appears to be keeping their options open.
Two teams that have shown a willingness to trade into the top 10, doing their homework on what it would cost: The #Falcons and the #Redskins. For Washington, it would likely be for a QB. For Atlanta, the options are varied.

While Atlanta seems less clear, one name that has been heavily linked to the Falcons is Clemson Tigers defensive tackle Christian Wilkins. There has also been a discussion that the Falcons could look to the defensive backfield and focus on a player like LSU’s Greedy Williams.
While we will have to wait and see what the two teams ultimately decide to select and whether any major trades are made, the clock is ticking and things will be underway before we know it.
The 2019 NFL Draft will take place between April 25 and April 27 in Nashville, Tennessee. Nashville earned the honor of hosting the 84th annual player selection over cities Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas, and Cleveland/Canton.
