Watch Now: JLC's Locks Of The 2020 NFL Draft (2:06)

We're finally here -- the last mock of the 2020 NFL Draft season. The actual draft is not that far off so we figured it's time to settle up. These are weird times, and the draft should be even weirder. It's impossible to know exactly what kind of trades we'll see, and there could be a number of different prospects who end up in the first round in an unexpected fashion.

A couple of guys I'm particularly high on -- one defensive back and one wide receiver -- sneak in here on my final mock draft.

This might honestly be the most difficult mock I've ever done. I think the way the board lines up coupled with team needs and a lack of trades up top along with the saturation of the quarterback market overall is going to make for some weird stuff happening on Thursday. 

Smart teams will be way ahead of the curve, and teams already behind might really fall back. We'll see, but expect shenanigans.  

We put together a full first-round mock on the Pick Six Podcast this week for your final draft primer; listen below and be sure to subscribe for daily NFL goodness fired into your eardrums.

Alright, let's get to it.

NFL Mock Draft
Round 1
Round 1 - Pick 1
LSU • 6'4" / 221 lbs
Projected Team
Cincinnati
PROSPECT RNK
2nd
POSITION RNK
1st
Everyone better get at least one pick correct in their mock draft. Joe Burrow to the Bengals is as big a slam dunk as they come.
Round 1 - Pick 2
Ohio State • 6'5" / 264 lbs
Projected Team
Washington
PROSPECT RNK
1st
POSITION RNK
1st
Ultimately I think if Washington is trading this pick, they'll do it before the draft. If that happens, you're getting a mulligan on my final mock draft. I don't think anyone will pay the price they want to move down, so they stay here and take a stud in Chase Young.
Round 1 - Pick 3
Clemson • 6'4" / 238 lbs
Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
3rd
POSITION RNK
1st
They have a need at cornerback certainly, but I'm gonna go back to what I thought out of the gate with this draft: that Bill Belichick would take Simmons here, so I'm going to have Matt Patricia do the same.
Round 1 - Pick 4
Georgia • 6'5" / 315 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Giants
PROSPECT RNK
11th
POSITION RNK
3rd
Dave Gettleman is telling us what he plans to do and when he does that, he usually follows through. I would have had Mehki Becton here, but I think Gettleman is one of those GMs, given his job security, who will be worried about a guy with a off-field red flag in NYC if he struggles on the field and what people will say.
Round 1 - Pick 5
Alabama • 6'0" / 217 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
5th
POSITION RNK
2nd
It is my belief the Dolphins are smokescreening right now to land Tua at No. 5. And you know what? It's been hilariously transparent but I think it's working! It did here anyway.
Round 1 - Pick 6
Ohio State • 6'1" / 200 lbs
Projected Team
L.A. Chargers
PROSPECT RNK
4th
POSITION RNK
1st
The Chargers could definitely take Justin Herbert OR they could add to an already-loaded defense. I think Tom Telesco's QB depth chart is by design and he'll add to it after the draft or on Day 2 instead of doing the very obvious and taking Herbert here.
  Mock Trade from Carolina Panthers
Round 1 - Pick 7
Oregon • 6'6" / 236 lbs
Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
18th
POSITION RNK
3rd
Seeing Herbert drop past the Chargers, the Jaguars make a small move up -- I think Carolina would flip in this spot for just the cost of 116 overall. That doesn't add up but it's an extra pick for a small move down.
Round 1 - Pick 8
Auburn • 6'5" / 325 lbs
Projected Team
Arizona
PROSPECT RNK
6th
POSITION RNK
1st
Offensive line would be fine here but the Cards are more about winning now than people think. Brown will greatly improve the defense immediately.
  Mock Trade from Carolina Panthers
Round 1 - Pick 9
Florida • 6'1" / 204 lbs
Projected Team
Atlanta
PROSPECT RNK
16th
POSITION RNK
2nd
Another trade! I think with an increased involvement from David Tepper plus Matt Rhule looking to stockpile a questionable roster, Carolina will be aggressive about trying to move back. We know Thomas Dimitroff wants to move up and the Falcons need one of his signature draft splashes to work out. They grab a corner we know they adore.
Round 1 - Pick 10
Iowa • 6'5" / 320 lbs
Projected Team
Cleveland
PROSPECT RNK
7th
POSITION RNK
1st
Impossible to imagine the Browns going in a different direction than offensive line here. They'll feel good heading into 2020 if they nab one of the top guys.
Round 1 - Pick 11
Alabama • 6'1" / 193 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Jets
PROSPECT RNK
12th
POSITION RNK
2nd
They could go offensive line, but Jeudy is a perfect fit for the Jets, Adam Gase's system and Sam Darnold. They need results on offense right now. Jeudy can give them that.
Round 1 - Pick 12
Oklahoma • 6'2" / 189 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
10th
POSITION RNK
1st
Wanted to have them trading up to get Lamb, who is my top wide receiver on the board. Don't think it would be crazy at all with their ammo, but at 12 they have to feel good about getting one of these guys, especially if it works out this way.
  Mock Trade from San Francisco 49ers
Round 1 - Pick 13
Alabama • 6'0" / 190 lbs
Projected Team
Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK
15th
POSITION RNK
3rd
The Eagles reportedly love Lamb too, but can they get that high without paying too much? This is a perfectly fine consolation prize. The 49ers desperately want to trade down.
Round 1 - Pick 14
Alabama • 6'4" / 312 lbs
Projected Team
Tampa Bay
PROSPECT RNK
8th
POSITION RNK
2nd
I think the Bucs are a decent bet to move up as well but trading will be tough and as long as three quarterbacks and plenty of defensive players go, they should be able to get one of their primary offensive line targets at 14. If a surprising OL selection happens early, they might have to make a move.
Round 1 - Pick 15
South Carolina • 6'5" / 319 lbs
Projected Team
Denver
PROSPECT RNK
9th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Broncos wanted one of the three big wideouts in this draft and contemplated going with Justin Jefferson here, but Kinlaw gives them some serious juice on the interior moving forward.
  Mock Trade from Atlanta Falcons
Round 1 - Pick 16
Louisville • 6'7" / 364 lbs
Projected Team
Carolina
PROSPECT RNK
13th
POSITION RNK
4th
They could have viably taken him at seventh overall but land him here after acquiring some extra draft picks in the process.
Round 1 - Pick 17
LSU • 6'1" / 202 lbs
Projected Team
Dallas
PROSPECT RNK
27th
POSITION RNK
4th
This seems redundant because of Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup but this WR corps would be STACKED with those three in the fold long term.
Round 1 - Pick 18
USC • 6'5" / 317 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
54th
POSITION RNK
9th
Projectable tackle, but the Dolphins might be a year away from hoping everything clicks. Either way they get some much needed protection for Tua.
Round 1 - Pick 19
Clemson • 6'1" / 195 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
24th
POSITION RNK
3rd
You know what Mike Mayock isn't scared to do? Draft a productive Clemson defensive player higher than you think he should go. Terrell is gonna be a first-round pick regardless I think, so why not have him land with the Raiders, a position of need and value that isn't too far off?
Round 1 - Pick 20
Utah • 6'0" / 195 lbs
Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
48th
POSITION RNK
8th
The Jaguars are taking a cornerback with the Jalen Ramsey pick. I know a spite pick if I've ever seen one.
  Mock Trade from Philadelphia Eagles
Round 1 - Pick 21
Arizona State • 6'0" / 200 lbs
Projected Team
San Francisco
PROSPECT RNK
32nd
POSITION RNK
5th
Think the 49ers will go corner or wideout here, picking the best available guy. Aiyuk can get loose in space, which is a dangerous thing for anyone on a Kyle Shanahan offense.
Round 1 - Pick 22
LSU • 6'3" / 254 lbs
Projected Team
Minnesota
PROSPECT RNK
14th
POSITION RNK
2nd
I think they'll double dip on defense here and in this instance the Vikings are trying to make up for the loss of Everson Griffen.
Round 1 - Pick 23
Penn State • 6'5" / 265 lbs
Projected Team
New England
PROSPECT RNK
20th
POSITION RNK
3rd
This just feels like a very Patriots pick for some reason.
Round 1 - Pick 24
Oklahoma • 6'2" / 241 lbs
Projected Team
New Orleans
PROSPECT RNK
22nd
POSITION RNK
2nd
Some people like them taking a QB here but I think they want to keep shoving in on 2020 and figure out the Drew Brees thing later.
Round 1 - Pick 25
LSU • 5'11" / 197 lbs
Projected Team
Minnesota
PROSPECT RNK
24th
POSITION RNK
3rd
Two LSU starters added to this defense isn't going to be the worst thing in the world.
Round 1 - Pick 26
Michigan • 6'4" / 319 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
39th
POSITION RNK
6th
If the Dolphins come out of this draft with a QB and two potential long-term answers on the OL, they should be doing cartwheels.
Round 1 - Pick 27
Minnesota • 5'9" / 203 lbs
Projected Team
Seattle
PROSPECT RNK
60th
POSITION RNK
5th
This guy is a BALLHAWK. Who cares less about what you think they need than Pete Carroll and John Schneider?
Round 1 - Pick 28
LSU • 6'1" / 227 lbs
Projected Team
Baltimore
PROSPECT RNK
23rd
POSITION RNK
3rd
The Ravens should be adding people who can help them immediately as they push all in on Lamar Jackson's rookie deal.
Round 1 - Pick 29
Alabama • 6'2" / 195 lbs
Projected Team
Tennessee
PROSPECT RNK
30th
POSITION RNK
5th
Cornerback is suddenly kind of a thin position for this team as it transitions on defense.
Round 1 - Pick 30
Colorado • 6'1" / 227 lbs
Projected Team
Green Bay
PROSPECT RNK
37th
POSITION RNK
7th
This guy is a MONSTER and won't have to carry the load with Davante Adams in town too.
  Mock Trade from San Francisco 49ers
Round 1 - Pick 31
Utah State • 6'4" / 219 lbs
Projected Team
L.A. Chargers
PROSPECT RNK
19th
POSITION RNK
4th
I think the 49ers want to trade down badly, and if Love is there, someone will pay the price to come up and get him. The Chargers make as much a sense as anyone, especially since they don't need to start Love this season as they go all-in on Tyrod Taylor.
Round 1 - Pick 32
TCU • 6'3" / 290 lbs
Projected Team
Kansas City
PROSPECT RNK
29th
POSITION RNK
3rd
I want nothing more than to give Andy Reid a running back here but he just doesn't draft them early. Instead, he'll shore up the defensive line even further to try and make another title run.
