2020 NFL Mock Draft: Chargers gamble on Tua Tagovailoa in top 11, Dolphins get Justin Herbert late
Tua's injury has made his draft position a big question mark, but L.A. is willing to take a chance
Tua Tagovailoa is going in the first round, people.
Getting that fifth year is just too valuable. Now where does he land within the first 32 picks? Last week, I figured it could be New England. He goes earlier in this mock, and the Dolphins go a different route than what's expected with their first three picks.
The order of selections below is based on teams' records through the first 11 weeks of the season. Position rankings are based on our.
Where will Tua land? And which teams will win and cover on Thanksgiving? Brady Quinn and Ryan Wilson join Will Brinson to break it all down on the Pick Six Podcast. Listen below and be sure to subscribe for daily NFL goodness fired into your eardrums.
Now, to the picks.
Round 1 - Pick 1
Joe Burrow QB
LSU • Sr • 6'4" / 216 lbs
The Bengals are starting Andy Dalton again, which could jeopardize their chances to get the No. 1 overall pick. However, they do have a two-game "lead" in that race. Burrow is still the guy for Cincinnati in 2020.
Round 1 - Pick 5
Round 1 - Pick 9
Javon Kinlaw DL
South Carolina • Sr • 6'6" / 310 lbs
I can totally envision a scenario in which Tom Coughlin wants to start rebuilding the defensive front with youth. Kinlaw is a 6-foot-6, 300-plus pounder with great burst and heavy hands.
Round 1 - Pick 12
Alabama • Jr • 6'6" / 310 lbs
A mock with the Buccaneers riding out Jameis Winston for at least another season. They try to give him better protection in the pocket with Leatherwood who, in theory, could play a variety of positions.
Round 1 - Pick 18
LSU • Jr • 6'3" / 203 lbs
Delpit hasn't fully lived up to expectations this season, and he's seemingly played a few games while not being close to 100%. He has the size and instincts to thrive as a complement to Malik Hooker.
Round 1 - Pick 21
A.J. Terrell CB
Clemson • Jr • 6'1" / 190 lbs
Terrell is a gifted man-to-man corner who can close on the football in a hurry in zone. With Byron Jones likely hitting the free-agent market, the Cowboys could be looking for a cornerback early in the 2020 Draft.
From Pittsburgh Steelers
Round 1 - Pick 22
Round 1 - Pick 24
Round 1 - Pick 26
Round 1 - Pick 29
Jalen Reagor WR
TCU • Jr • 5'11" / 195 lbs
The Saints have one of the most consistent receivers we've ever seen in Michael Thomas, but he needs some help. Reagor won't necessarily check the production box but is primed to be a better pro with better quarterback play.
