2020 NFL Mock Draft: Raiders land new QB-WR duo for Vegas move, Dolphins follow top corner with two linemen
The Raiders get a new identity for their reboot with Justin Herbert and Tee Higgins leading the passing attack
As the regular season winds down, some quarterback situations across the league are becoming more clear. The teams that will need to address the position are coming into focus. A few of those teams will find their answer within the first round. CBS Sports has the perfect mock draft projection to ensure that your favorite team is in the playoff hunt next year rather than watching all the fun from home.
The order of selections below is based on teams' records through Week 13. Position rankings are based on our.
Round 1 - Pick 2
Chase Young EDGE
Ohio State • Jr • 6'5" / 265 lbs
Young is the best overall prospect by a wide margin. He would have been my choice over either of the Bosa brothers. The Ohio State product offers rare athletic ability along with advanced technical play.
Round 1 - Pick 8
Javon Kinlaw DL
South Carolina • Sr • 6'6" / 310 lbs
Calais Campbell and Josh Allen are difference-makers for that Jacksonville defense. Kinlaw would draw some eyes away from those guys to the middle. With his strength, he is capable of pushing the pocket.
Round 1 - Pick 15
LSU • Jr • 6'3" / 203 lbs
Offensive line is a big need and Cleveland can spend their remaining picks on those spots. However, they have a soon-to-be 31-year-old Morgan Burnett and a free agent-to-be Damarious Randall that just skipped a practice during a potential playoff run. Delpit is the best player available and gets a chance to reunite with Greedy Williams.
From Pittsburgh Steelers
Round 1 - Pick 22
From Houston Texans
Round 1 - Pick 25
Round 1 - Pick 29
Florida State • Jr • 6'5" / 311 lbs
New England has been gashed in the run game this season. Their back seven has played elite football. By adding a player like Wilson up the middle, they become even more difficult to attack.
Round 1 - Pick 30
Lucas Niang OL
TCU • Sr • 6'7" / 328 lbs
Mike McGlinchey has been solid but San Francisco may need to start preparing for life without Joe Staley on the left side. Niang could sit for a year and learn, similar to what Philadelphia has done this year with Andre Dillard.
