Is this Cam Newton's last season as the Panthers quarterback? For as inconceivable as that sentence may read, it could happen, especially given the structure of his contract. Carolina lost back-to-back home games to start the season, and Newton hasn't looked like himself. 

Also, you've already heard and read quite a bit about the studly 2020 wide receiver draft class, and the praise for that group will continue all the way until Round 1 begins.

Headlined by Jerry Jeudy, it's a contingent featuring many high-caliber talents with well-rounded games and plenty of speed. In this mock, a whopping six receivers fly off the board within the first 32 selections. 

The draft order below is based off the current  2020 NFL Draft order. Position rankings are based on pre-season evaluations.

Now, to the picks.

NFL Mock Draft
Round 1
Round 1 - Pick 1
Ohio State • 6'5" / 264 lbs
Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
3rd
POSITION RNK
1st
The Jaguars have invested plenty in their defensive line in recent years, but that group could lose Yannick Ngakoue in free agency and is aging. With Young and Josh Allen, Jacksonville would have bookend edge rushers for many years.
Round 1 - Pick 2
Alabama • Soph • 6'1" / 217 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
1st
POSITION RNK
1st
It'd be surprising if the Dolphins didn't get the No. 1 overall pick this season. The franchise likely wants to select someone who is hopefully a franchise quarterback.
Round 1 - Pick 3
Georgia • 6'5" / 315 lbs
Projected Team
Cincinnati
PROSPECT RNK
2nd
POSITION RNK
1st
Thomas possesses a rare blend of power and athleticism on the edge. The Bengals have to prioritize their offensive line in the 2020 offseason.
Round 1 - Pick 4
Oregon • 6'6" / 236 lbs
Projected Team
Carolina
PROSPECT RNK
5th
POSITION RNK
1st
The Panthers can save more than $19 million if they release Cam Newton. Yes, such a decision seems unfathomable, but if Carolina's struggles continues it could happen, and there could be a new coach on the sidelines. He'd likely love to pick Herbert here.
Round 1 - Pick 5
Alabama • Soph • 6'1" / 193 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Giants
PROSPECT RNK
4th
POSITION RNK
1st
The Giants have to upgrade their receiver group, and Jeudy has No. 1 receiver written all over him.
Round 1 - Pick 6
Iowa • 6'5" / 320 lbs
Projected Team
Washington
PROSPECT RNK
36th
POSITION RNK
6th
Washington needs a lot on offense, but the instant breakout from Terry McLaurin may ease the team's concerns at wide receiver. With the Trent Williams situation still up in the air, the Redskins pick a powerful blocker for Dwayne Haskins.
Round 1 - Pick 7
Virginia • 6'1" / 202 lbs
Projected Team
Pittsburgh
PROSPECT RNK
6th
POSITION RNK
1st
The Steelers defense is a major work in progress, and a true No. 1 cornerback for the long-term would be greatly beneficial to a struggling group.
Round 1 - Pick 8
Colorado • Sr • 6'2" / 290 lbs
Projected Team
Denver
PROSPECT RNK
69th
POSITION RNK
4th
The Broncos have to get stronger on the inside of their defensive line. Johnson is a high-motor penetrator with a super-quick first step.
Round 1 - Pick 9
Oklahoma • Soph • 6'2" / 197 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Jets
PROSPECT RNK
11th
POSITION RNK
3rd
Sam Darnold is going to need more offensive artillery starting in 2020, and Lamb can be a reliable No. 1 receiver right away.
Round 1 - Pick 10
Oregon • Fr • 6'5" / 309 lbs
Projected Team
Cleveland
PROSPECT RNK
19th
POSITION RNK
3rd
Cleveland's line has not gotten off to the best of starts, and the right side of it needs the most work. Throckmorton has starred at right tackle for a while at Oregon and would be a plug and play starter for the Browns.
Round 1 - Pick 11
LSU • 5'11" / 197 lbs
Projected Team
Arizona
PROSPECT RNK
10th
POSITION RNK
2nd
While Arizona did take Byron Murphy with the opening pick in the second round of 2019, the need in the secondary remains. Fulton is a versatile, lock down corner.
Round 1 - Pick 12
Oklahoma • 6'1" / 223 lbs
Projected Team
Indianapolis
PROSPECT RNK
NR
POSITION RNK
NR
Wait, what about Jacoby Brissett? Yes, the Colts just signed him to a two-year extension, which was a nice vote of confidence for him for 2019 but doesn't really tie him to Indianapolis for very long at all. Indianapolis' front office should give Frank Reich another opportunity with a super-talented quarterback. And Hurts would be the perfect candidate to sit for a year.
Round 1 - Pick 13
Boise State • Soph • 6'2" / 265 lbs
Projected Team
Tennessee
PROSPECT RNK
25th
POSITION RNK
4th
Cam Wake may play until he's 40 and still produce, but Tennessee has to add more talented youngsters to its edge-rusher group. Weaver is one of the most refined and explosive pass rushers in college football.
Round 1 - Pick 14
Clemson • 6'4" / 238 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
15th
POSITION RNK
1st
The Raiders offense looks, at the very least, respectable through two games. The defense is probably a year or two away. Adding Simmons, a ridiculously freaky safety/linebacker hybrid, would do wonders for that unit.
Round 1 - Pick 15
Wisconsin • 5'10" / 226 lbs
Projected Team
Tampa Bay
PROSPECT RNK
27th
POSITION RNK
1st
Running back in Round 1! Yes. A running back in Round 1. In 2020. Taylor is the real deal, a dare I say Saquon-esque type boulder of a back with sprinter speed. He'd instantly take some pressure off Tampa's pass game.
Round 1 - Pick 16
TCU • 5'11" / 197 lbs
Projected Team
New Orleans
PROSPECT RNK
14th
POSITION RNK
4th
New Orelans can't continue to lean so heavily on Michael Thomas. Reagor is a crazy elusive and effortlessly fast.
Round 1 - Pick 17
Iowa • Soph • 6'6" / 260 lbs
Projected Team
Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK
8th
POSITION RNK
2nd
Philadelphia is loaded. Their group of defensive ends leaves a little to be desired. Epenesa is a long, powerful, high-motor rusher that gives him a first-round profile.
Round 1 - Pick 18
Clemson • 6'4" / 215 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
24th
POSITION RNK
5th
The Raiders could use another wideout for Derek Carr as they move to Las Vegas after a certain wideout forced his way out this summer.
Round 1 - Pick 19
Colorado • Soph • 6'1" / 220 lbs
Projected Team
Minnesota
PROSPECT RNK
9th
POSITION RNK
2nd
We all know ... the Vikings need that third receiver behind Thielen and Diggs. Shenault is a dream of a West Coast Offense weapon given his yards-after-the-catch ability.
Round 1 - Pick 20
LSU • Soph • 6'3" / 208 lbs
Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
16th
POSITION RNK
1st
Matt Patricia watched Devin McCourty quarterback the Patriots secondary for years. He hopes he's getting a similar type of leader and playmaker in Delpit here.
Round 1 - Pick 21
Alabama • 6'0" / 190 lbs
Projected Team
L.A. Chargers
PROSPECT RNK
51st
POSITION RNK
9th
The Chargers are going to squeeze every last second of top-end play out of Philip Rivers, and I don't see the old gun-slinger slowing down yet. With Ruggs, Los Angeles would get another burner after losing Tyrell Williams in free agency.
Round 1 - Pick 22
Wisconsin • Soph • 6'4" / 315 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
26th
POSITION RNK
1st
The Dolphins don't reach on an tackle or edge rusher here. Instead they fortify the center spot for Tua, with Biadasz, currently the premier center in the 2020 class.
Round 1 - Pick 23
Alabama • Soph • 6'1" / 204 lbs
Projected Team
Atlanta
PROSPECT RNK
39th
POSITION RNK
6th
Diggs, brother of Stefon on the Vikings, is a twitchy, ultra-aggressive corner with great size at 6-foot-2. Atlanta could stand to replenish the youthfulness of its corner group.
Round 1 - Pick 24
Penn State • 6'5" / 265 lbs
Projected Team
Dallas
PROSPECT RNK
28th
POSITION RNK
5th
The Taco Charlton experiment hasn't gone well in Dallas. If he turns in a bland third season, that might be it for him, which would be the Cowboys would likely be in the market for a defensive end early in the 2020 Draft.
Round 1 - Pick 25
Michigan State • 6'3" / 264 lbs
Projected Team
Buffalo
PROSPECT RNK
12th
POSITION RNK
3rd
The Bills will likely be in need of more juice on the edge of their defensive line in 2020, and Willekes is a polished presence on the outside.
Round 1 - Pick 26
Georgia • 6'1" / 194 lbs
Projected Team
New England
PROSPECT RNK
61st
POSITION RNK
3rd
New England picked two Georgia Bulldogs in the first round of the 2018 Draft, and Bill Belichick goes back to that school to snag Reed, a dynamic center fielder with NFL bloodlines.
Round 1 - Pick 27
Tennessee • 6'6" / 335 lbs
Projected Team
Green Bay
PROSPECT RNK
34th
POSITION RNK
6th
Green Bay has been prioritized prudence over flash in the past few drafts, and that trend continues as the Packers add highly-skilled youth to the offensive line. Smith has All-Pro upside.
Round 1 - Pick 28
California • Soph • 6'1" / 202 lbs
Projected Team
San Francisco
PROSPECT RNK
67th
POSITION RNK
4th
Davis flies all over the field, making plays outside the numbers against the run and in coverage. San Francisco could use a game-changer on the back end of its defense.
Round 1 - Pick 29
Florida State • 6'5" / 311 lbs
Projected Team
Baltimore
PROSPECT RNK
95th
POSITION RNK
5th
Wilson has NFL-caliber strength and is an ascending pass rusher on the inside. After years with quality run-stuffing interior defensive linemen, Baltimore could use someone like Wilson.
Round 1 - Pick 30
Stanford • 6'1" / 192 lbs
Projected Team
Seattle
PROSPECT RNK
18th
POSITION RNK
3rd
The Seahawks secondary needs some upgrades. Adebo is an incredibly long corner capable of shutting down a perimeter receiver.
Round 1 - Pick 31
Utah • 6'0" / 195 lbs
Projected Team
Kansas City
PROSPECT RNK
50th
POSITION RNK
7th
Kansas City's secondary needs major work. Johnson has the length, athleticism, and attitude to be a No. 1 corner in the NFL.
Round 1 - Pick 32
Oregon • 6'4" / 296 lbs
Projected Team
L.A. Rams
PROSPECT RNK
NR
POSITION RNK
NR
Los Angeles must bring young players onto its offensive line, especially at center. Hanson is incredibly experienced and can be a good Day 1 starter for Sean McVay.
