2020 NFL Mock Draft: Tom Brady sticks with Patriots and they get him a speedy receiver, Jaguars add defense

Senior Bowl week is here, which marks the start of draft season, and rumors are running rampant about basically every prospect. Javon Kinlaw was the best player on the field in Mobile on Tuesday, and he lands inside the top 10 in this mock.

Also, there's no way the Patriots let Tom Brady sign with another team, right? In this mock, he stays in Foxborough, and the front office gets him an ultra-gifted wideout who can get open.

The draft order is now set through No. 30 overall. Position rankings are based on our composite prospect rankings.

Now, to the picks.

NFL Mock Draft
Round 1
Round 1 - Pick 1
LSU • Sr • 6'4" / 216 lbs
Projected Team
Cincinnati
PROSPECT RNK
2nd
POSITION RNK
1st
The Bengals will get some calls for the No. 1 pick, but it'll be a downright shocker if Burrow is not the pick for Cincinnati.
Round 1 - Pick 2
Ohio State • Jr • 6'5" / 265 lbs
Projected Team
Washington
PROSPECT RNK
1st
POSITION RNK
1st
Young is too talented and too productive for the Redskins to pass on him, especially with Ryan Kerrigan entering the twilight of his career.
Round 1 - Pick 3
Ohio State • Jr • 6'1" / 200 lbs
Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
3rd
POSITION RNK
1st
The top three have been locked in for a while. With Young gone, the Lions improve the defense with the best cornerback in this class.
Round 1 - Pick 4
Iowa • Jr • 6'5" / 322 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Giants
PROSPECT RNK
15th
POSITION RNK
3rd
Curveball from Dave Gettleman? No way. Wirfs going before Andrew Thomas would be a surprise, but it's not a bad pick by the Giants. Wirfs is as strong as they come, athletic for his size and has experience at right and left tackle.
Round 1 - Pick 5
Alabama • Jr • 6'1" / 218 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
4th
POSITION RNK
2nd
I can't see the Dolphins passing on Tagovailoa sitting here at No. 5 overall, even if they aren't convinced he'll be ready to play the entire 2020 season.
Round 1 - Pick 6
Oregon • Sr • 6'6" / 237 lbs
Projected Team
L.A. Chargers
PROSPECT RNK
33rd
POSITION RNK
4th
Herbert is the most physically gifted quarterback at the Senior Bowl, and even if he sits beyond Tyrod Taylor at times early on in his career, the Chargers have to seriously consider him here.
Round 1 - Pick 7
Clemson • Jr • 6'4" / 230 lbs
Projected Team
Carolina
PROSPECT RNK
6th
POSITION RNK
1st
Luke Kuechly retires and Simmons falls into Carolina's lap. Perfect situation for new head coach Matt Rhule.
Round 1 - Pick 8
Oklahoma • Jr • 6'2" / 189 lbs
Projected Team
Arizona
PROSPECT RNK
7th
POSITION RNK
1st
Buzz has materialized about Lamb being the consensus top receiver and will likely to be the first player off the board at his position in April.
Round 1 - Pick 9
South Carolina • Sr • 6'6" / 310 lbs
Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
13th
POSITION RNK
2nd
Derrick Brown may be a more household name, but Kinlaw provides more as a pass rusher and can play multiple positions across the defensive line.
Round 1 - Pick 10
Georgia • Jr • 6'5" / 320 lbs
Projected Team
Cleveland
PROSPECT RNK
9th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Browns' war room erupts with the board falling this way. Thomas will be the top offensive lineman for many teams in this draft.
Round 1 - Pick 11
Louisville • Jr • 6'7" / 369 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Jets
PROSPECT RNK
31st
POSITION RNK
5th
Joe Douglas decides first to go offensive line to protect Sam Darnold first in what is a deep receiver class. Becton is a behemoth with high-end athletic traits and vines for arms.
Round 1 - Pick 12
Florida • Jr • 6'1" / 202 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
22nd
POSITION RNK
4th
Henderson is flying under the radar now but expect a rise when more get to his film. He's very sticky in man coverage.
Round 1 - Pick 13
Alabama • Jr • 6'1" / 192 lbs
Projected Team
Indianapolis
PROSPECT RNK
10th
POSITION RNK
2nd
How about this pairing? Jeudy in Frank Reich's West Coast offense would be glorious.
Round 1 - Pick 14
Alabama • Jr • 6'1" / 200 lbs
Projected Team
Tampa Bay
PROSPECT RNK
21st
POSITION RNK
3rd
More youthful secondary pieces for the Buccaneers, a team with a defense no one wanted to play down the stretch. McKinney does everything well.
Round 1 - Pick 15
Auburn • Sr • 6'5" / 318 lbs
Projected Team
Denver
PROSPECT RNK
5th
POSITION RNK
1st
With Von Miller, Bradley Chubb, and Brown up front, they have one of the more ferocious defensive fronts in the AFC in 2020.
Round 1 - Pick 16
LSU • Sr • 6'0" / 200 lbs
Projected Team
Atlanta
PROSPECT RNK
16th
POSITION RNK
2nd
If he was a little taller, Fulton would be a consensus top 10 pick. He slides a bit, but the Falcons are happy to add him to their secondary that needs reworking.
Round 1 - Pick 17
Alabama • Sr • 6'2" / 207 lbs
Projected Team
Dallas
PROSPECT RNK
25th
POSITION RNK
5th
With Byron Jones likely to bolt in free agency, the Cowboys need a physical corner to man the perimeter. That is Diggs' forte at his size, playing style and length.
Round 1 - Pick 18
Alabama • Jr • 6'5" / 320 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
8th
POSITION RNK
1st
The Dolphins pair Tagovailoa with his blindside protector in Wills, an overwhelmingly powerful blocker with outstanding fundamentals and good feet.
Round 1 - Pick 19
Colorado • Jr • 6'2" / 220 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
27th
POSITION RNK
6th
The Raiders want more offensive weapons. Shenault is a horse in the open field.

Jacksonville

19th
POSITION RNK
1st
Good luck running to the outside against the Jaguars with Myles Jack and Murray at linebacker.

Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK
18th
POSITION RNK

Dream come true for the Eagles, a team starved to inject more youth and talent to its receiver group.
Round 1 - Pick 22
LSU • Soph • 6'4" / 250 lbs
Projected Team
Buffalo
PROSPECT RNK
20th
POSITION RNK
4th
Chassion is a relatively young but powerful, bendy, and refined pass rusher who has the athleticism to play some SAM linebacker if need be.
Round 1 - Pick 23
TCU • Jr • 5'11" / 195 lbs
Projected Team
New England
PROSPECT RNK
27th
POSITION RNK
5th
In this scenario, Tom Brady returns to New England and the Patriots get him more explosion and separation ability at receiver with the hyper-quick Reagor.

Alabama • Jr • 6'0" / 190 lbs
Projected Team
New Orleans
PROSPECT RNK
17th
POSITION RNK
4th
While the Saints don't pass down the field much at this point in Drew Brees' career, Ruggs is a threat to score on screens and slants because of his world-class speed.
Round 1 - Pick 25
USC • Jr • 6'6" / 310 lbs
Projected Team
Minnesota
PROSPECT RNK
32nd
POSITION RNK
6th
Jackson needs to add strength but has physical traits of a first-round left tackle.
Round 1 - Pick 26
LSU • Jr • 6'3" / 203 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
12th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Dolphins stop Delpit's slide and get a big, springy safety who can carry out a multitude of responsibilities on the defense.
Round 1 - Pick 27
Virginia • Sr • 6'1" / 200 lbs
Projected Team
Seattle
PROSPECT RNK
31st
POSITION RNK
5th
Can't get away from this pairing. Hall is a long, instinctive-in-zone cornerback with long arms. Perfect in Seattle.
Round 1 - Pick 28
Iowa • Jr • 6'6" / 280 lbs
Projected Team
Baltimore
PROSPECT RNK
11th
POSITION RNK
2nd
This would represent a sizable plummet from where the consensus is right now on Epenesa, but the Ravens love big, oversized defenders up front, and Epenesa is a mammoth presence.
Round 1 - Pick 29
Boise State • Jr • 6'3" / 265 lbs
Projected Team
Tennessee
PROSPECT RNK
18th
POSITION RNK
2nd
Weaver is very bendy for being 260-ish pounds and has coverage chops thanks to how Boise State used him. Mike Vrabel will love him.

LSU • Jr • 6'3" / 192 lbs
Projected Team
Green Bay
PROSPECT RNK
48th
POSITION RNK
7th

Round 1 - Pick 31
Michigan • Sr • 6'2" / 250 lbs
Projected Team
Kansas City
PROSPECT RNK
65th
POSITION RNK
7th
The Chiefs get a multi-dimensional second-level player in Uche who already has stellar pass-rushing ability and can be coached on the coverage aspect of playing linebacker.
Round 1 - Pick 32
Clemson • Jr • 6'1" / 190 lbs
Projected Team
San Francisco
PROSPECT RNK
37th
POSITION RNK
5th
