Final 2020 NFL Mock Draft


It’s draft day! Hopeful NFL fans are optimistic and excited, ready for their favorite team to ace the draft. For some fanbases, the reality may be more disappointing. Part of the fun of the NFL Draft is the uncertainty of it. "Chalk" mock drafts rarely turn out to be even remotely accurate.

Creating a mock draft for accuracy is usually an exercise in futility. After the first trade, the whole thing usually crumbles. No matter how much scouting, research, and Vegas line-reading someone can do - mocks are tough. So why make one? Because that's just what draftniks do.

This is my final stab at it. You can also see my Mock Draft 1.0 and Mock Draft 2.0. These NFL Draft projections are what I believe will happen tonight, not what I would do if I were making the picks.

Round One - The Top 10

1. Bengals - Joe Burrow - QB, LSU

Joe Burrow is probably on Day 14 of install at this point.

2.Redskins - Chase Young - EDGE, Ohio St.

Chase Young will help give the Redskins one of the best defensive lines in football next year.

Projected Trade – Dolphins get pick No. 3.  Lions get picks No. 5 and No. 39.

3. Dolphins (f/DET) - Tua Tagovailoa - QB, Alabama

It doesn't make any sense for the Dolphins to make this move for anyone but Tua Tagovailoa.

4. Giants - Tristan Wirfs - OT, Iowa

The Giants go with Tristan Wirfs because of his right tackle experience and athleticism.

5. Lions (f/MIA) - Derrick Brown - DT, Auburn

The Lions could go Jeff Okudah here, but reports say they are high on Derrick Brown. 

Projected Trade – Falcons get pick No. 6.  Chargers get picks No. 16, No. 47 and a 2021 1st-round pick.

6. Falcons (f/LAC) - Jeff Okudah - CB, Ohio State

Rumors are swirling about the Falcons trading up for an impact defender.

7. Panthers - Isaiah Simmons - LB, Clemson

The Panthers need help at safety and linebacker.  Isaiah Simmons can play safety and linebacker.

8. Cardinals - Andrew Thomas - OT, Georgia

The Cardinals could go C.J. Henderson here, but decide Andrew Thomas is the best player available.

Projected Trade – Buccaneers get pick No. 9.  Jaguars get picks No. 14 and No. 45.

9. Buccaneers (f/ARI) - Jedrick Wills Jr. - OT, Alabama

The Buccaneers need to protect Tom BradyJedrick Wills Jr. gave up just one sack at Alabama.

Projected Trade – Eagles get pick No. 10.  Browns get picks No. 21, No. 53, and No. 103.

10. Eagles (f/CLE) - CeeDee Lamb - WR, Oklahoma

This draft is deep at wide receiver, but the Eagles jump the Jets for Carson Wentz’s future WR1.

 

Round One - #11-20

11. Jets - Mekhi Becton - OT, Louisville

The Jets miss out on Lamb so go tackle before focusing on receivers on day two.

12. Raiders - C.J. Henderson 

The Raiders have a need at cornerback and C.J. Henderson has shutdown potential.

13. 49ers (f/IND) - Henry Ruggs III - WR, Alabama

The 49ers go with the speedy teammate of Jerry Jeudy due to question marks about Jeudy’s knee.

14. Jaguars (f/TB) - Javon Kinlaw - DT, S. Carolina

The Jaguars wanted Javon Kinlaw all along and add some extra picks in the process.

15. Broncos - Justin Jefferson - WR, LSU

The Broncos need an outside wide receiver and a slot wide receiver.  Justin Jefferson can play both.  Not at the same time, though.  I think.

16. Chargers (f/ATL) - K'Lavon Chaisson - EDGE, LSU

The Chargers move down and pass on a quarterback for a high-upside pass-rusher.

17. Cowboys - Jerry Jeudy - WR, Alabama

The Cowboys are thrilled to land a sliding Leon Lett - I mean Jerry Jeudy.

18. Dolphins (f/PIT) - Xavier McKinney - S, Alabama

The Dolphins add a starting safety with a pick they got for trading a starting safety.

19. Raiders (f/CHI) - Denzel Mims - WR, Baylor

The Raiders can't pass on the dominant traits of Denzel Mims.

20. Jaguars (f/LAR) - Trevon Diggs - CB, Alabama

Trevon Diggs is rising up boards as the Jaguars continue to re-tool their defense.

 

Round One - #21-32

21. Browns (f/PHI) - Ezra Cleveland - OT, Boise St.

Ezra Cleveland lands in Cleveland as the Browns stockpile picks.

22. Vikings (f/BUF) - A.J. Terrell - CB, Clemson

The Vikings have a desperate need at cornerback.

23. Patriots - Justin Herbert - QB, Oregon

In the 2011 NFL Draft, Bill Belichick used the 74th overall pick on Ryan Mallett.  Justin Herbert is like Ryan Mallett, but if he had a scantron.

24. Saints - Kenneth Murray - LB, Oklahoma

Kenneth Murray can step in and call the defense for Dennis Allen on day one.

25. Vikings - Michael Pittman Jr. - WR, USC

In a surprise pick, Michael Pittman Jr. and strong hands go to Minnesota.

26. Dolphins (f/HOU) - Jonathan Taylor - RB, Wisconsin

Brian Flores comes from New England, where a pounding early-down running back has some value.  Jonathan Taylor can be the Dolphins non-terrible version of Sony Michel.

27. Seahawks - Austin Jackson - OT, USC

When this pick turns out to be Cam Akers or Zack Moss, Seahawks fans will still defend John Schneider.  Schneider had an all-time great draft in 2012, but hasn’t hit on a first-round pick once since then.

28. Ravens - Patrick Queen - LB, LSU

Patrick Queen won’t call the defense, but he’ll run really fast and hit people, which fits the Ravens style.

29. Titans - A.J. Epenesa - EDGE, Iowa

A.J. Epenesa’s poor three-cone time might be a bad omen, but his toughness and length fit in well with Mike Vrabel’s smashmouth tendencies.

30. Packers - Jalen Reagor - WR, TCU

The Packers need a deep threat for Aaron Rodgers.  Jalen Reagor has speed to burn.

Projected Trade – Chargers get pick No. 31.  49ers get picks No. 37 and No. 71.

31. Chargers (f/SF) - Jalen Hurts - QB, Oklahoma

Lamar Jackson may have changed the way teams evaluate running quarterbacks.  The Bolts trade up to get the fifth-year option on Jalen Hurts.

32. Chiefs - Cesar Ruiz - C, Michigan

It makes perfect sense for a team that lacks speed like the Chiefs want to move up for Henry Ruggs III.  That turns out to be smoke as they stay put and add yet another slow-footed player to their anemic offense.

 

Round 2

  1. Bengals - Cole Kmet - TE, Notre Dame
  2. Colts (f/WAS) - Jordan Love - QB, Utah St.
  3. Lions - Yetur Gross-Matos -EDGE, Penn St.
  4. Giants - Matt Hennessy - C, Temple

  25. Rams (f/HOU) - Terrell Burgess - SCB, Utah
  26. Vikings - Josh Jones - OT, Houston
  27. Seahawks - Cam Akers - RB, Florida St.
  28. Ravens - Laviska Shenault Jr. - WR, Colorado
  29. Titans - Raekwon Davis DL Alabama            
  30. Packers - Logan Wilson LB Wyoming
  31. Chiefs (f/SF) - Clyde Edwards-Helaire - RB, LSU
  32. Seahawks (f/KC) - Darrell Taylor - EDGE, Tennessee

  14. Falcons - Davon Hamilton - DT, Ohio St.
  15. Jets - Lynn Bowden Jr. - WR, Kentucky
