2020 NFL Mock Draft: Bengals go Justin Herbert at No. 1 overall, Falcons bolster defense with top cornerback
The Bengals win the No. 1 overall pick sweepstakes and pick the Oregon quarterback over Tua Tagovailoa
We might want to erase the Miami Dolphins as the shoo-in for the No. 1 overall pick. The now Jay Gruden-less Washington Redskins and Cincinnati Bengals will seemingly provide Brian Flores' club serious competition for that top selection.
And given that Justin Herbert is physically superior to Tua Tagovailoa, I seriously believe the Oregon passer could jump him to be the first player off the board in the 2020 NFL Draft.
The draft order below is based on records and strength of schedule. Position rankings are based on my .
Now, to the picks.
Round 1 - Pick 8
LSU • Jr • 6'3" / 203 lbs
The Cardinals will likely get things rolling on offense eventually -- they kind of did against the Bengals -- but the defense could use pieces everywhere. Delpit is a thumping, rangy strong safety prospect.
Round 1 - Pick 18
Wake Forest • Jr • 6'5" / 275 lbs
The Rams defense is predicated on inside pressure from Aaron Donald. With Dante Fowler currently playing on a one-year deal and Clay Matthews near the end of his career, the edge needs to be emphasized early.
Round 1 - Pick 19
Jordan Love QB
Utah State • Jr • 6'4" / 225 lbs
The Vikings are positioned to take a quarterback in Round 1 of the 2020 Draft. Love is still raw as a passer but can make ridiculous throws with plenty of velocity from obscure arm angles and platforms.
Round 1 - Pick 21
