2020 NFL Mock Draft: Chargers move up for Tua Tagovailoa, Eagles trade with Jets to pick CeeDee Lamb

At this juncture, the day before workouts begin at the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine, I think a nice chunk of the receiver class is going to go off the board early, then teams are going to wait until Round 2 or Round 3 to address the position. 

And in this mock, you get four receivers inside the top 15, with the Philadelphia Eagles moving up to get their guy.

The draft order is now set. Position rankings are based on our composite prospect rankings.

What's the latest news from the NFL combine? Brady Quinn, Pete Prisco, Ryan Wilson and Jamey Eisenberg get you caught up on everything you need to know on the Pick Six Podcast. Listen below and be sure to subscribe for daily NFL goodness.

Now, to the picks.

NFL Mock Draft
Round 1
Round 1 - Pick 1
LSU • Sr • 6'4" / 221 lbs
Projected Team
Cincinnati
PROSPECT RNK
2nd
POSITION RNK
1st
The Bengals couldn't care less about Joe Burrow's hand size. He's going No. 1 overall.
Round 1 - Pick 2
Ohio State • Jr • 6'5" / 264 lbs
Projected Team
Washington
PROSPECT RNK

POSITION RNK
1st
Last week, I had the Redskins trading out of this pick. This week, let's check how the board falls if Ron Rivera's club stays put and picks the best defensive player in this class.
  Mock Trade from Detroit Lions
Round 1 - Pick 3
Alabama • Jr • 6'0" / 217 lbs
Projected Team
L.A. Chargers
PROSPECT RNK
3rd
POSITION RNK
2nd
Let's try on this trade for size. The Chargers aren't absolutely desperate at quarterback with Tyrod Taylor on the roster, but would probably want to plan for the future. They figure Tagovailoa won't fall to them and they like the nucleus they have on defense for the next few seasons.
Round 1 - Pick 4
Alabama • Jr • 5'11" / 188 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Giants
PROSPECT RNK
17th
POSITION RNK
3rd
When Ruggs runs in the low 4.2s, it's going to boost his already high draft stock, and if he's that much faster than Jerry Jeudy and CeeDee Lamb, he could go ahead of them. If there's one GM who likes flashiness, it's Dave Gettleman, so this pairing happens in this mock.
Round 1 - Pick 5
Oregon • Sr • 6'6" / 236 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
20th
POSITION RNK
3rd
With two quarterbacks already gone, the Dolphins instead stay put and go with Herbert as the experienced prospect with all the tools to be an All-Pro.
Round 1 - Pick 6
Ohio State • Jr • 6'1" / 205 lbs
Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
4th
POSITION RNK
1st
In their trade back from No. 3, the Lions get the best press man corner in the draft by a wide margin, No. 37 overall (second round), No. 71 (third round) and Los Angeles' 2021 second-round pick.
Round 1 - Pick 7
Clemson • Jr • 6'4" / 238 lbs
Projected Team
Carolina
PROSPECT RNK
5th
POSITION RNK
1st
Simmons' talent and legitimate versatility are too tantalizing for the rebuilding Panthers to pass on here.
Round 1 - Pick 8
Alabama • Jr • 6'1" / 193 lbs
Projected Team
Arizona
PROSPECT RNK
11th
POSITION RNK
2nd
Does the D.J. Humphries extension indicate the Cardinals won't go tackle in Round 1? Possibly. So, they select Jeudy to bring some serious juice to the receiver group.
Round 1 - Pick 9
Auburn • Sr • 6'5" / 326 lbs
Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
6th
POSITION RNK
1st
With Marcell Dareus reportedly set to be gone, and Calais Campbell a likely cap casualty, the Jaguars suddenly have to rebuild the interior of their defensive line. Enter the super-powerful Brown.
Round 1 - Pick 10
Iowa • Jr • 6'5" / 320 lbs
Projected Team
Cleveland
PROSPECT RNK
13th
POSITION RNK
3rd
This is a dream come true for Cleveland, with its pick of the litter at the tackle position. Wirfs is NFL strong with versatility and high-end athleticism at the premier position that's of great need for this franchise.
  Mock Trade from New York Jets
Round 1 - Pick 11
Oklahoma • Jr • 6'2" / 198 lbs
Projected Team
Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK
8th
POSITION RNK
1st
Howie Roseman strikes as he sees Lamb fall outside the top 10 and makes a deal with former colleague Joe Douglas. While many Jets fans scoff at the idea of moving back for a team to pick a receiver that could've helped Sam Darnold, Douglas decides to gather more picks in a deep receiver class.
Round 1 - Pick 12
Utah State • Jr • 6'4" / 224 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
33rd
POSITION RNK
4th
The Raiders have gotten scorched by Patrick Mahomes in Jon Gruden's first two seasons with the team, so Mike Mayock and Co. grab a quarterback with a similar style.
Round 1 - Pick 13
TCU • Jr • 5'11" / 206 lbs
Projected Team
Indianapolis
PROSPECT RNK
43rd
POSITION RNK
7th
That makes five receivers inside the top 15, and I think Reagor could sneak in there thanks to what should be an awesome showing at the combine at over 200 pounds.
Round 1 - Pick 14
South Carolina • Sr • 6'5" / 324 lbs
Projected Team
Tampa Bay
PROSPECT RNK
7th
POSITION RNK
2nd
This is a pairing I absolutely adore. Kinlaw is a long, jarring interior penetrator who can play anywhere up front.
Round 1 - Pick 15
Louisville • Jr • 6'7" / 364 lbs
Projected Team
Denver
PROSPECT RNK
16th
POSITION RNK
2nd
John Elway goes with Becton to help fortify the future for Drew Lock in Denver, as Garret Bolles isn't trending in the right direction on the left side.
Round 1 - Pick 16
Iowa • Jr • 6'5" / 275 lbs
Projected Team
Atlanta
PROSPECT RNK
12th
POSITION RNK
2nd
Even if Epenesa isn't a freak at the combine, Dan Quinn will love his ability to win with power on the inside and pass-rushing moves around the corner.
Round 1 - Pick 17
LSU • Sr • 6'0" / 197 lbs
Projected Team
Dallas
PROSPECT RNK
18th
POSITION RNK
2nd
So maybe Fulton isn't a huge corner. Who cares? A bunch of sub 6-foot corners have gone early in the draft in recent years, and Fulton has two years of outstanding film at the top of his resume.
Round 1 - Pick 18
LSU • Soph • 6'3" / 254 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
14th
POSITION RNK
3rd
With their eyes still firmly on the long-term future, the Dolphins go with the youthful, springy, and impressively polished Chaisson to be their alpha edge.
Round 1 - Pick 19
Colorado • Jr • 6'1" / 227 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
30th
POSITION RNK
5th
Shenault is almost built like Saquon Barkley and has similar springiness and contact balance in space. He's a yards-after-the-catch monster, which is precisely what Jon Gruden wants in his West Coast offense.
Round 1 - Pick 20
Georgia • Jr • 6'5" / 315 lbs
Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
10th
POSITION RNK
2nd
It's back to the drawing board at left tackle for the Jaguars, and I have to think Doug Marrone would love the run-blocking prowess of Thomas as a blindside protector.
Round 1 - Pick 21
Houston • Sr • 6'5" / 319 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Jets
PROSPECT RNK
28th
POSITION RNK
5th
Douglas gets his ultra-athletic left tackle to be the foundation of the line for the Jets for many years to come. In the trade down, New York grabs this pick, No. 53 overall (second round), and Philadelphia's 2021 third-round selection.
Round 1 - Pick 22
Boise State • Jr • 6'2" / 265 lbs
Projected Team
Buffalo
PROSPECT RNK
39th
POSITION RNK
6th
Banking on the depth at receiver in this class, Brandon Beane goes with Weaver, a bulky but bendy edge rusher with good hand work and three years of high-level production in college.
Round 1 - Pick 23
LSU • Jr • 6'3" / 213 lbs
Projected Team
New England
PROSPECT RNK
22nd
POSITION RNK
2nd
The safety spot in New England is in a state of flux, and Delpit would stabilize that group going forward.
Round 1 - Pick 24
Arizona State • Sr • 6'0" / 205 lbs
Projected Team
New Orleans
PROSPECT RNK
42nd
POSITION RNK
6th
The Saints have to get more complementary receivers, and with Aiyuk's incendiary speed and gigantic wingspan, he's the perfect No. 2 to Michael Thomas.
Round 1 - Pick 25
Florida • Jr • 6'1" / 204 lbs
Projected Team
Minnesota
PROSPECT RNK
25th
POSITION RNK
4th
Henderson is a sticky, twitched-up man cornerback who can play on the outside or in the slot because of his athleticism. He's the type of corner Minnesota will need in 2020.
Round 1 - Pick 26
Alabama • Jr • 6'4" / 312 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
9th
POSITION RNK
1st
The Dolphins go best offensive lineman available with Wills here due to positional value and the Alabama blocker's athletic prowess and pure strength.
Round 1 - Pick 27
Alabama • Sr • 6'1" / 205 lbs
Projected Team
Seattle
PROSPECT RNK
24th
POSITION RNK
3rd
Diggs is more of a man corner than one who specializes in zone, but he's likely to have the length Seattle covets at the position.
Round 1 - Pick 28
Penn State • Jr • 6'5" / 266 lbs
Projected Team
Baltimore
PROSPECT RNK
19th
POSITION RNK
4th
The Ravens need more edge-rushing help beyond Matthew Judon, and Gross-Matos is a large, lengthy, improving pass rusher with a nice collection of counter moves.
Round 1 - Pick 29
Wisconsin • Sr • 6'2" / 238 lbs
Projected Team
Tennessee
PROSPECT RNK
45th
POSITION RNK
4th
Baun would give the Titans another springy off-ball linebacker, but he doubles as a speedy, bendy edge rusher.
Round 1 - Pick 30
TCU • Jr • 6'3" / 290 lbs
Projected Team
Green Bay
PROSPECT RNK
29th
POSITION RNK
4th
Blacklock is a freaky athlete on the inside and would give the Packers a dangerous tandem up front with him and Kenny Clark.
Round 1 - Pick 31
Alabama • Jr • 6'0" / 201 lbs
Projected Team
San Francisco
PROSPECT RNK
15th
POSITION RNK
1st
Home run pick here for the 49ers, as they get a playmaking safety who can carry out all the responsibilities asked of him by Robert Saleh right away after his experience in Nick Saban's scheme.
Round 1 - Pick 32
Missouri • Jr • 6'4" / 302 lbs
Projected Team
Kansas City
PROSPECT RNK
67th
POSITION RNK
5th
If Chris Jones signs elsewhere in free agency, the reigning Super Bowl champs will have a giant need at defensive tackle. Elliott is a Jones-type of tall, disruptor with good hand use.
