Minicamps have commenced as teams prepare for the 2018 season, but what about 2019? As we prepare to watch this year's draft class members make their NFL debuts for their new teams, it's never too early to start thinking about which college football standouts this upcoming season potentially will go in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
Here's a look at our latest mock draft for 2019.
The younger brother of Chargers star Joey Bosa, Nick had 8.5 sacks in his sophomore season for the Buckeyes. With a strong 2018, he has a great shot to be the top pick in the draft.
An All-American for the Cougars, Oliver had 5.5 sacks and 73 tackles in his sophomore season. He's a safe bet as a top 10 pick with a year as good as 2017.
The Colts took guard Quenton Nelson sixth overall in 2018 but could still add to the offensive line as they continue their rebuild. Adding a premier pass rusher is also a good possibility.
Arizona is set with the pass rush between Chandler Jones and Markus Golden, but the latter is returning from injury as he enters his fourth season. If the Cardinals decide to move on, this draft has plenty of pass-rushing talent, including Gary, who had 5.5 sacks and 58 tackles last season.
The clock is ticking on Ryan Tannehill. He needs a big 2018 season to remain the long-term signal caller in Miami. Lock has a huge arm but really needs to harness it, peaking at just a 57.8 percent completion rate in 2017.
Robby Anderson remains a question mark off the field, and the Jets could certainly use some more big-play weapons. Brown had 75 receptions for 1,252 yards and 11 scores for the Rebels last season.
Tackle remains a major need for the Bengals, who acquired the aged Cordy Glenn for left tackle and moved Jake Fisher over to the right side this season. Williams has the potential to answer the problems.
Washington addressed the defensive line in consecutive seasons with Jonathan Allen and Da'Ron Payne, but the team might not be done. Ferrell would have been a first-round pick if he declared this year after finishing with 9.5 sacks last season.
The Bucs addressed the defensive line in the offseason, including drafting tackle Vita Vea in the first round, but Gerald McCoy's future is cloudy after he struggled with injuries in 2017. Lawrence has McCoy potential with 8.5 sacks in two seasons at Clemson while listed at 6-5, 340 pounds.
Detroit addressed corner in the draft this year with Teez Tabor, but Baker offers significantly more speed. The Bulldog had three picks and 44 tackles last season, along with nine passes defensed.
The Broncos bypassed the top-end quarterbacks in the draft this year, opting to roll with veteran Case Keenum and former first-rounder Paxton Lynch as his backup. If both fall on their faces this season, the accurate Herbert is a viable option. He hasn't put up big numbers in Oregon's run-first offense, but he did complete more than 67 percent of his passes last season.
Chicago added Eddie Goldman and Jonathan Bullard in recent drafts, but the deep Clemson defensive line could be calling. Wilkins had five sacks and 60 tackles last season, showing the ability to play the pass and the run.
Seattle is comfortable with Shaquill Griffin but certainly needs more depth in the secondary. Arguably the top corner prospect heading into the 2018 season, Williams had six picks last season.
Jon Gruden could be asking for trouble as he goes into 2018 with Doug Martin and Marshawn Lynch as his starting running backs. The spot will almost certainly be a need, and he doesn't have to go far to find the answer. Love is the Vegas front-runner for the Heisman after rushing for more than 2,100 yards last season.
Many wanted the Giants to take Eli Manning's eventual replacement in the draft this year, but they pushed back the decision. Patterson transferred from Ole Miss to Michigan, where he will get tutoring from Jim Harbaugh this season.
The Cowboys failed to adequately address wideout after releasing Dez Bryant. Samuel played only three games due to injury last season but will vault up the draft with a healthy 2018. He has Odell Beckham-like ability when he gets his hands on the ball.
Terrell Suggs is approaching his final days in the NFL, so Baltimore needs to address the pass rush. Davis had 8.5 sacks and 69 tackles in his sophomore season at Bama and is towering at 6-7, 300-plus pounds.
Quality offensive line play becomes even more important for the Packers as Aaron Rodgers nears his twilight years, as we saw last season. Adams is one of the top prospects in a deep tackle class.
Carolina is trying to get one more quality year out of Julius Peppers, but the team will almost certainly address the edge in next year's draft. Jackson has 14 sacks in two seasons for the Hurricanes.
It looks like the 49ers will have Reuben Foster heading into the season, but his off-field issues have still been a serious concern. The team took Fred Warner this year but could add further depth with a tackling machine like White, who had a staggering 133 tackles in 2017.
A short extension didn't prove that Jacksonville thinks Blake Bortles is the long-term answer at quarterback. The accurate Stidham has completed 67 percent of his passes between Baylor and Auburn.
Houston made some offseason moves on the offensive line, but it's still a major concern going into 2018. That's especially an issue with Deshaun Watson returning from knee surgery. Next year will be a great chance to address the line for good with a tackle like Edwards.
Another Clemson defensive lineman? Bryant had a breakout 2017 season with 8.5 sacks and has the ability to help Jurrell Casey in Tennessee.
Grier very well could be the top pick in next year's draft if things go his way. An accurate playmaker, he threw for nearly 3,500 yards in 11 games last season but was sidelined at the end of the season with a finger injury.
Andy Levitre is 32 and could be approaching the end of his stay in Atlanta. Benzschawel is considered the best guard prospect in the class at this stage.
Green Bay added several wideouts late in this year's draft, but it will certainly be an area of need if none of them emerge. Sills had 60 receptions for 980 yards and 18 touchdowns last season, showing himself to be an elite red zone target at 6-3.
Josh Allen the linebacker is coming off of two excellent seasons for the Wildcats, with a combined 19 sacks. The Eagles have already had some movement at linebacker this offseason and could use depth at the position after letting Mychal Kendricks go.
The Chiefs tried to address the pass rush with the addition of Breeland Speaks in this year's draft, but it still remains to be seen what they will do with Dee Ford and the high-priced Justin Houston after this year. Allen could add more beef to the line and allow Speaks to focus on the rush. He had an amazing 100 tackles and four sacks last season.
Even after losing Ryan Shazier, the Steelers didn't take a linebacker in the draft this year. Jennings had six tackles for loss and 41 overall tackles despite somewhat limited playing time last season.
The Vikings brought in Sheldon Richardson on a one-year deal this season, and Jones is his potential replacement. The Buckeye is a load on the inside and should see more playing time this season.
Will 2018 be Rob Gronkowski's final season? It's a valid question as the Pats look toward the future. Fant is considered the top prospect at the position after catching 11 touchdowns for the Hawkeyes last year.
Bush is undersized at 5-11, but he proved to be an elite contributor last season with 95 tackles and 5.5 sacks. The Rams have seemingly gone all in for 2018, but linebacker looks like their weakest spot heading into the season.
