2020 NFL Mock Drafts

  • # Team Player Pos
    1 Chase Young, Soph DE

    The Dolphins didn't address the position in the 2019 draft and Young, who played alongside Nick Bosa for three games last season, could be the next great Buckeyes edge rusher.

    2 Walker Little, Soph OT

    It's all about protecting Kyler Murray, the Cardinals' second first-round quarterback in as many years.

    3 Tua Tagovailoa, Soph QB

    The Raiders are all in on Derek Carr in 2019 but if the team stumbles again, #TankingforTua will continue to be a thing.

    4 A.J. Epenesa, Soph DE

    The Bills had a great 2019 draft but didn't take an edge rusher till Round 7. Epenesa playing alongside Ed Oliver would make Sean McDermott very happy.

    5 Bryce HallVirginia, Jr CB

    Hall might've been a first-round cornerback if he came out in '19 and he'll only get better with experience. Plus, Hall adds secondary depth to a Bengals team that drafts CBs high every few years.

    6 Justin HerbertOregon, Jr QB

    Nick Foles isn't the long-term solution in Jacksonville and if they're in position to draft Herbert that means the 2019 season was a bust. Herbert might've been the first player taken in this draft had he not returned to Oregon.

    7 Jerry JeudyOregon, Soph WR

    DeSean Jackson returned to Philly, but Jeudy has that type of playmaking ability. If the plan is to build around Jameis Winston, Bruce Arians should continue to get him weapons, especially after such a defense-heavy 2019 draft.

    8 Grant DelpitOregon, Soph S

    The Panthers were favorites to land a playmaking safety in the '19 draft. It didn't happen, but they don't let Delpit get away next year.

    9 CeeDee LambOregon, Soph WR

    More weapons for Dwayne Haskins! Terry McLaurin, Kelvin Harmon and now Lamb, who was unstoppable for Oklahoma last season. Washington could obviously go in another direction if Josh Doctson finally puts it together.

    10 Laviska Shenault Jr.Oregon, Soph WR

    If Dave Gettleman has his way, Daniel Jones will be in Year 2 of his three-year plan to have the No. 6 pick in the 2019 draft to sit behind Eli Manning. But this is good news for Eli, who gets a big downfield target as New York tries to replace Odell Beckham.

    11 Kristian FultonOregon, Jr CB

    Amani Oruwariye was thought to be a possible first-round pick, but he didn't go off the board until Day 3. The Lions get their first-round talent in Fuller -- plus, you can never have too many good defensive backs.

    12 Julian OkwaraOregon, Jr DL

    The Titans find a bookend to 2018 second-rounder Harold Landry -- this assumes, of course, that Marcus Mariota has a big season. Otherwise, Tennessee could be in the market for a quarterback.

    13 Raekwon DavisAlabama, Jr DT

    The Falcons reportedly loved Ed Oliver, who ended up in Buffalo. They land Davis, who doesn't have Oliver's athleticism, but may have been no worse than a second-round pick if he declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

    14 Xavier McKinneyAlabama, Soph CB

    The 49ers bolster their secondary after solidifying the defensive line with Nick Bosa, the No. 2 overall pick in 2019.

    15 Dylan MosesAlabama, Soph LB

    The Broncos let Brandon Marshall walk in free agency and traded out of the No. 10 pick with Devin Bush still on the board. They get their linebacker in '20 with Dylan Moses, who was better than Mack Wilson last season.

    16 Isaiah SimmonsAlabama, Soph S

    Simmons is a safety/linebacker hybrid who looks like he could be a faster version of Kam Chancellor.

    17 Tee HigginsAlabama, Soph WR

    The Vikings got tight end Irv Smith Jr. in Round 2 of the '19 draft and now they get one of the best wideouts in the 2020 class. With an improved O-line, Kirk Cousins is out of excuses.

    18 CJ HendersonAlabama, Soph CB

    The Jets didn't draft a cornerback until late on Day 3 and Henderson would go even higher in the draft with a strong junior season.

    19 Albert OkwuegbunamMissouri, Soph TE

    Jason Witten is back but for how long? The Cowboys need to get younger and more athletic at tight end.

    20 Yetur Gross-MatosMissouri, Soph DE

    The Ravens lost Terrell Suggs and Za'Darius Smith. Yes, they drafted Jaylon Ferguson in the third round but they need depth at defensive end.

    21 Jake FrommMissouri, Soph QB

    Fromm might be the best decision-maker in this class, but he doesn't have the arm strength or athleticism of a Tua or Herbert. Plus, he could sit behind Rodgers for a season before taking over the job full-time.

    22 Jaylon JohnsonMissouri, Soph CB

    The Seahawks got a playmaking safety in 2019 second-rounder Marquise Blair and now they get a first-round cornerback to add to the secondary.

    23 Derrick BrownAuburn, Jr DT

    We loved the idea of the Colts taking Jerry Tillery -- it didn't happen; they traded down and he landed with the Chargers -- but Brown allows them to wrong that right.

    24 Trey AdamsWashington, Sr OT

    The team traded Marcus Gilbert and Alejandro Villenueva's contract expires after the 2021 season. The Steelers could also target an edge rusher here since Bud Dupree is in the final year of his rookie deal.

    25 Lorenzo NealWashington, Jr DT

    The Eagles routinely dominate the line of scrimmage -- in part because they're able to rotate players and keep them fresh -- and Neal adds depth and playmaking ability.

    26 Tyler BiadaszWisconsin, Soph C

    If Tua is the new franchise quarterback, it makes sense to protect him. Biadasz was a likely Day 2 pick, had he declared for the 2019 draft.

    27 Andrew ThomasWisconsin, Soph OT

    This roster isn't missing much. The Browns need a left tackle to protect Baker Mayfield and Andrew Thomas could be the final piece of the puzzle.

    28 Henry Ruggs IIIWisconsin, Soph WR

    Philip Rivers could play forever so why not keep getting him downfield weapons. Ruggs was overshadowed by Jeudy last season but he has a chance to be special.

    29 Anfernee JenningsAlabama, Jr ILB

    Jennings returned to Alabama for his senior season and it was probably the right move. The Rams get an edge rusher to potentially replace Dante Fowler, who is on a one-year deal.

    30 Travis EtienneAlabama, Soph RB

    The Chiefs acquired Carlos Hyde and drafted Darwin Thompson in the seventh round, but Travis Etienne is a home run hitter who makes the Chiefs' offense even more dangerous.

    31 Curtis WeaverAlabama, Soph LB

    Weaver has 20.5 sacks in just two seasons at Boise State and would give the Saints a bookend to 2018 first-rounder Marcus Davenport.

    32 Paddy FisherAlabama, Soph LB

    Fisher had 116 tackles and four forced fumbles last season and if he continues to progress in 2019 he has a chance to sneak into the first round.
