During the offseason, Baker Mayfield's interim offensive coordinator to close out 2018, Freddie Kitchens, was promoted to head coach, while the team brought in air raid specialist Todd Monken (the overseer of Tampa Bay's league-leading passing offense last season) to serve as the new OC.

NFL DRAFT TOP 5 BY POSITION: Defense

LB Devin White LSU

Devin White is arguably one of the best athletes in this draft regardless of position. And that athleticism shows up on the field which is why he is my top ranked linebacker. He absolutely flies all over the field, making plays in the run game. White is also one of the best linebackers in coverage and will be able to match up very well with NFL tight ends right away.

NFL DRAFT: Two Round Mock Draft

QB Kyler Murray Oklahoma

Kyler Murray is the undisputed No. 1 pick, no matter what anyone says. Coach Kliff Kingsbury is familiar with Murray and he is going to start his rebuild of forging the Cardinals to fit his offense, of which Murray will be the focal point. The question we should really be asking, is where will Josh Rosen land?

NFL DRAFT TOP-5 BY POSITION: Offense

RB Josh Jacobs Alabama

Josh Jacobs is clearly the best running back in this draft class. He isn't a home-run hitter or huge big play guy, but he has all the tools to be successful in the NFL. He runs with a mean streak and is very powerful after initiating the contact with defenders.

2019 IDP DRAFT PREVIEW: Amani Hooker – S, Iowa

CB Amani Hooker Iowa

From a fantasy perspective, the fact that Hooker's not an ideal fit as a deep safety or slot corner in sub-packages isn't so much a bad thing. There are players (like Mathieu) who have shown the ability to be fantasy-relevant despite spending the majority of the time away from the line of scrimmage.

SCOUTING PROFILE: Daniel Jones, QB, Duke

QB Daniel Jones Duke

Jones started all 36 career games he played in during his three year career at Duke. He did suffer a broken collar bone early in 2018 which caused him to miss three games. He is an underrated athlete at the position with solid quickness, balance, and agility to be effective navigating the pocket and creating yards on the ground.

2019 IDP DRAFT PREVIEW: Nasir Adderley, S, Delaware

DB Nassir Addeley Delaware

From an Individual Defensive Player (IDP) perspective, Nasir Adderley’s a hard prospect to peg.. As we saw with Mathieu, Jackson and even Bates in 2018 (all of whom finished as Top 15 fantasy defensive backs in Fantasy Sharks Default IDP Scoring in 2018), deep safeties and “hybrid” types can make plenty of IDP hay.

SCOUTING PROFILE: DK Metcalf, WR, Mississippi

WR DK Metcalf Miss

Very fast foot speed to run away from defenders vertically. Marginal play speed when running routes over the middle due to his marginal quickness and lack of desire to make plays over the middle. Has a tendency to slow down even more through the traffic over the middle as he tries to avoid contact.

QB Kyler Murray Oklahoma

Kyler Murray was a one year starter at Oklahoma after transferring from Texas A&M after his freshman season. Started 17-of-29 career games at the two schools without missing any time due to injuries... Has elite athleticism for the position and was arguably the best athlete on the field in every game in 2018.

NFL DRAFT: QB Landing Spots

QB Dwayne Haskins Ohio State

The Raiders have been attracted to Haskins and Kyler Murray, but with Kyler Murray gone, they would have to go get Haskins. This pick could potentially change if the Giants trade up as they are apparently big on Haskins too.

2019 IDP DRAFT PREVIEW: Devin Bush – LB, Michigan

QB Peyton Ramsey & LB Devin Bush

In today's NFL, the linebacker position is all about range—the ability to go sideline-to-sideline and hold your own in coverage against tailbacks and tight ends. After lighting up the NFL Scouting Combine with an outstanding workout, Michigan's Devin Bush appears have a skill-set tailor-made for just that kind of defensive role.
