2020 NFL Mock Draft


January 29, 2020

The season is almost over, but the excitement never ends in the NFL. This year’s pool consists of so much talent at receiver and the quarterback position. LSU and Alabama are going to fill up the picks as always. Here is a quick look.

  1. Cincinnati Bengals (2-14): Joe Burrow (QB) LSU
    A much needed position for the team and a potential Hall of Fame quarterback.
  2. Washington Redskins (3-13: Chase Young (Edge) Ohio State
    Young is probably the most talented player in the draft. Young had a conference high 16.5 sacks with a career total 30.5, which proves his huge potential.
  3. Detroit Lions (3-12-1): Jeff Okudah Jr. (CB) Ohio State
    The Lions needed a lot, starting with their biggest weakness, the secondary. Okudah can help now that Glover Quinn is gone.
  4. New York Giants (4-12): Isiah Simmons (S/LB) Clemson
    The Giants have shown several skilled players on offense, but they need a lot of help on the defensive side of the ball.
  5. Miami Dolphins (5-11): Tua Tagovailoa (QB) Alabama
    If you are the Dolphins, you have to think long term. Tua can help with the developing players on that young team.
  6. Los Angeles Chargers (5-11): Justin Herbert (QB) Oregon
    The Chargers have so much talent, and Herbert can help put that all together.
  7. Carolina Panthers (5-11): Derrick Brown (DL) Auburn
    The Panthers need a QB, but they can’t pass on talent like Brown.
  8. Arizona Cardinals (5-10-1): Jedrick Wills Jr. (OL) Alabama
    With the addition of Kenyan Drake, Wills can help this run game go.
  9. Jacksonville Jaguars (6-10): Tristan Wirfs (OL) Iowa
    The Jaguars need offensive weapons, but you need to establish the offensive line first.
  10. Cleveland Browns (6-10): Mekhi Becton (OL) Louisville
    Baker Mayfield needs help starting first in his offensive line.
  11. New York Jets. (7-9): Jerry Jeudy (WR) Alabama
    The speed and route-running abilities of Jeudy are unstoppable.
  12. Las Vegas Raiders (7-9): CeeDee Lamb (WR) Oklahoma
    Once again, great route-running and great hands. He will help make Derek Carr an elite QB.
  13. Indianapolis Colts (7-9): Trevon Diggs (CB) Alabama
    The Colts had some great moments. Their struggles came at the receiver and corner positions, starting with Diggs is a great choice.
  14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-9): Andrew Thomas (OL) Georgia
    Jameis needs help passing, but it could be assisted with a better offensive tackle like Thomas.
  15. Denver Broncos (7-9): Javon Kinlaw (DL) South Carolina
    The Broncos have Bradley Chubb and Vonn Miller, but with a rebuild in process, talent like Kinlaw cannot be passed.
  16. Atlanta Falcons (7-9): Xavier McKinney (DB) Alabama
    The Falcons defense is suffering and needs help from a talented safety.
  17. Dallas Cowboys (8-8): C.J. Henderson (CB) Florida
    If Byron Jones considers to leave Dallas, Jerry Jones is going to need a cornerback to fill in.
  18. Miami Dolphins (via Steelers): Josh Jones (OL) Houston
    The Dolphins offensive line will need to support a running quarterback like Tagovailoa as much as they can.
  19. Las Vegas Raiders (via Bears): Kenneth Murray (OLB) Oklahoma
    Murray’s athleticism and strength is a need for a weak Raider defense.
  20. Jacksonville Jaguars (via Rams): Justin Jefferson (WR) LSU
    One of the most physical receivers we saw in the 2019-20 college season, Jefferson provides a big target for Gardner Minshew II.
  21. Philadelphia Eagles (9-7): A.J. Epenesa (Edge) Iowa
    The Eagles need fresh young talent on defense and Epenesa can provide it for sure.
  22. Buffalo Bills (10-6): Tee Higgins (WR) Clemson
    Though they lost n the playoff, one Clemson player really stood out. The Bills need a tall physical receiver like Higgins.
  23. New England Patriots (12-4): Jalen Hurts (QB) Alabama. The Patriots need a quarterback, believe it or not. Hurts shows tremendous upside and can keep the Patriots in the Super Bowl realm.
  24. New Orleans Saints (13-3): Jordan Love (QB)
    The Saints could definitely use young talent on the defensive side of the ball.
  25. Minnesota Vikings (10-6): Terrell Lewis (Edge) Utah State
    The Vikings could definitely use young talent on the defensive side of the ball.
  26. Miami Dolphins (via Houston): K’Lavon Chaisson (Edge) LSU
    The defensive line for the Dolphins couldn’t stop any opponent this year. Talent like Chaisson is a big help.
  27. Seattle Seahawks (11-5): Grant Delpit (S) LSU. The secondary was the only weakness on the Seattle team this year. It was terrible; Delpit will contribute to put this team right back in the divisional round.
  28. Baltimore Ravens (14-2): Patrick Queen (LB) LSU
    The Ravens had an elite defense all year and the perfect fit is to fill in the weak spot at LB with Queen.
  29. Tennessee Titans (9-7): Josh Uche (Edge) Michigan
    The defense was stellar in the playoffs, but the Titans could use a young end in Uche.
  30. Green Bay Packers (13-3): Henry Ruggs III (WR) Alabama
    Ruggs is the ideal slot for Rodgers and would combine to make a strong duo with Davante Adams.
  31. Kansas City Chiefs (12-4): J.K. Dobbins (HB) Ohio State
    The Chiefs need weapons, not necessarily out wide, but in the backfield to run and catch. Dobbins excels at both.
  32. San Francisco 49ers (13-3): A.J. Terrell Jr. (CB) Clemson
    The Niners defense was outstanding all year. Terrell brings a unique piece of talent to their already stacked roster.
