Chase Goodbread’s NFL Draft Preview
One of the biggest nights of the National Football League off-season is here as the 2019 NFL Draft kicks off from Nashville.
Prior to the draft getting underway, NFL.com writer Chase Goodbread provided a preview of what to expect in this year's draft on The Gary Harris Show.
Thursday could be a memorable night for two former Alabama players. Defensive lineman Quinnen Williams and offensive tackle Jonah Williams could be among the first Crimson Tide players selected in the draft.
For Quinnen Williams, Goodbread sees him as one of the first players selected in the first round.
"I think the Jets at three, the Raiders at four. It's a good chance that that's going to be your window for Quinnen Williams". Goodbread said.
According to Goodbread, the former Alabama nose guard has been able to stand out despite a draft field full of defensive line prospects.
"Says a lot for Quinnen Williams not only that he's going to be a top five pick, but that he's going to be a top five pick in a year where there are talented defensive linemen all over the place, not just ends but tackles too. He's going to be probably the first defensive tackle drafted." Goodbread said.
Looking at Jonah Williams, the NFL Draft analyst sees the former Alabama offensive tackle among the first 20 picks in the draft.
"I think somewhere between 10 and 20 is probably about right for him." Goodbread said.
Although some projections have Jonah Williams at guard, Goodbread thinks you could see him start out at tackle in the NFL.
"I think what we're going to see whoever drafts him do is roll him out there at tackle to start with and find out what he can do." Goodbread said.
