Three-round 2020 NFL Mock Draft: Henry Ruggs second receiver off board, Patriots get quarterback in the third

Free agency is finally here and our most recent mock draft (it's No. 29, if you're counting) reflects all the changes that have unfolded in the last week. 

Not surprisingly, quarterbacks remain the storyline below, with four going in Round 1, another going in Round 2 and two more coming off the board in Round 3. (This is the first time this draft season we've had seven QBs selected, but the Patriots take a third-round flier on one after watching Tom Brady sign with the Buccaneers.)

Keep reading to see how the other 99 picks end up.

NFL Mock Draft
Round 1
Round 1 - Pick 1
LSU • Sr • 6'4" / 221 lbs
Projected Team
Cincinnati
PROSPECT RNK
2nd
POSITION RNK
1st
This isn't going to change. The biggest question now regarding the Bengals QB situation is where Andy Dalton will end up.
Round 1 - Pick 2
Ohio State • Jr • 6'5" / 264 lbs
Projected Team
Washington
PROSPECT RNK
1st
POSITION RNK
1st
Chase Young is the best player in this draft class and the Redskins have needs up and down the roster.
Round 1 - Pick 3
Ohio State • Jr • 6'1" / 205 lbs
Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
4th
POSITION RNK
1st
The team traded Darius Slay and signed Desmond Trufant. Trading out of this pick would be ideal, but it'll be hard to pass on Okudah here if they stay put.
Round 1 - Pick 4
Alabama • Jr • 6'4" / 312 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Giants
PROSPECT RNK
6th
POSITION RNK
1st
Wills was dominant last season for Alabama and he'll solidify the right side of the Giants' O-line, which is great news for Daniel Jones.
Round 1 - Pick 5
Alabama • Jr • 6'0" / 217 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
5th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Dolphins reportedly tried to have Tagovailoa in for a visit before the NFL shut down during the coronavirus outbreak and you'd have to think that if he's healthy, Miami will gladly take him here.
Round 1 - Pick 6
Oregon • Sr • 6'6" / 236 lbs
Projected Team
L.A. Chargers
PROSPECT RNK
20th
POSITION RNK
4th
The Chargers reportedly won't look for a QB in free agency, which means Tyrod Taylor is the man ... for now, anyway. But the team will have a decision to make at No. 6, and Herbert, Tagovailoa and Jordan Love could all be options here.
Round 1 - Pick 7
Clemson • Jr • 6'4" / 238 lbs
Projected Team
Carolina
PROSPECT RNK
3rd
POSITION RNK
1st
Even though the team signed Teddy Bridgewater -- and is looking to move Cam Newton -- QB could still be a possibility here. But the Panthers also released Eric Reid last week, and Simmons, who plays safety, linebacker, slot corner and edge rusher, would be a natural replacement.
Round 1 - Pick 8
Iowa • Jr • 6'5" / 320 lbs
Projected Team
Arizona
PROSPECT RNK
9th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Cardinals gave D.J. Humphries a three-year extension and Wirfs would solidify the right tackle position on an offense that now includes Deandre Hopkins.
Round 1 - Pick 9
Louisville • Jr • 6'7" / 364 lbs
Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
11th
POSITION RNK
3rd
The QB job is now Gardner Minshew's. Knowing that -- and with Cam Robinson entering the final year of his deal -- the Jags are going to need to protect the second-year passer. Becton is a left tackle who will bookend 2019 second-rounder Jawaan Taylor on the offensive line.
Round 1 - Pick 10
Georgia • Jr • 6'5" / 315 lbs
Projected Team
Cleveland
PROSPECT RNK
15th
POSITION RNK
4th
The team signed RT Jack Conklin in free agency. Chris Hubbard could move from RT to RG and Andrew Thomas would be the Browns starting LT on Day 1. Maybe this is the year it all comes together for Cleveland.
Round 1 - Pick 11
Oklahoma • Jr • 6'2" / 198 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Jets
PROSPECT RNK
8th
POSITION RNK
1st
The Jets re-signed guard Alex Lewis and inked center Connor McGovern and tackle George Fant in free agency. That frees them up to get Sam Darnold some weapons and CeeDee Lamb is arguably the best WR in this draft class.
Round 1 - Pick 12
Alabama • Jr • 5'11" / 188 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
14th
POSITION RNK
3rd
The Raiders spent the first days of free agency stocking up on defensive talent and it frees them up to get a big-play wideout for Derek Carr and/or new QB Marcus Mariota. Ruggs can score from anywhere on the field and he had just one drop last season.
Round 1 - Pick 13
South Carolina • Sr • 6'5" / 324 lbs
Projected Team
San Francisco
PROSPECT RNK
10th
POSITION RNK
2nd
DeForest Buckner is now in Indy and he, Arik Armstead and Nick Bosa played at least 75 percent of the 49ers' defensive snaps last season. Kinlaw, who is the best pass-rushing defensive lineman in this draft class, is also stout against the run. He'll seamlessly fit right in in San Francisco.
Round 1 - Pick 14
Auburn • Sr • 6'5" / 326 lbs
Projected Team
Tampa Bay
PROSPECT RNK
7th
POSITION RNK
1st
Ndamukong Suh is currently a free agent and Brown is a top-10 talent who slips down the board because of the run on QBs and OL. Tampa Bay's defense was quietly very good a year ago and now it's even better.
Round 1 - Pick 15
Baylor • Sr • 6'3" / 207 lbs
Projected Team
Denver
PROSPECT RNK
43rd
POSITION RNK
8th
Mims was the only show in town for Baylor's downfield passing game and he was still dominant. He's a freak athlete who consistently wins with speed, athleticism and physicality.
Round 1 - Pick 16
Florida • Jr • 6'1" / 204 lbs
Projected Team
Atlanta
PROSPECT RNK
18th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Falcons released Desmond Trufant and while they signed edge rusher Dante Fowler, they need to address the secondary. Henderson is the second-best CB in this class.
Round 1 - Pick 17
LSU • Soph • 6'3" / 254 lbs
Projected Team
Dallas
PROSPECT RNK
13th
POSITION RNK
2nd
Robert Quinn signed a huge deal with the Bears and Chaisson, who needs to add a few pounds, is explosive off the edge. He'll have the added benefit of playing on the other side of the line from Demarcus Lawrence.
Round 1 - Pick 18
Houston • Sr • 6'5" / 319 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
32nd
POSITION RNK
5th
Jones had an outstanding season for the Cougars and that carried over to the Senior Bowl. He has the type of strength and athleticism that translates well to the NFL. In Miami, he'd be part of a rebuilding effort that would begin with protecting the new face of the franchise, Tua.
Round 1 - Pick 19
LSU • Sr • 6'0" / 197 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
22nd
POSITION RNK
3rd
Daryl Worley is a free agent and even though the Raiders signed Eli Apple, they still need depth at cornerback. Fulton is a physical cover corner who would've been a first-rounder had he come out after the 2018 season.
Round 1 - Pick 20
Utah State • Jr • 6'4" / 224 lbs
Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
19th
POSITION RNK
3rd
If Love is here the Jags will think long and hard about taking him. He's a special talent, the Nick Foles experience lasted just a season and it's unclear if Gardner Minshew is anything other than an NFL backup.
Round 1 - Pick 21
Alabama • Jr • 6'1" / 193 lbs
Projected Team
Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK
12th
POSITION RNK
2nd
It's hard to imagine Jeudy as WR4 and lasting until the 22nd pick, yet here we are. This is more about the talented WR class and less about Jeudy, who was the best route runner in college last season. Either way, the Eagles get a much needed playmaker for Carson Wentz.
Round 1 - Pick 22
Auburn • Jr • 5'10" / 198 lbs
Projected Team
Minnesota
PROSPECT RNK
37th
POSITION RNK
7th
Trae Waynes and Mackensie Alexander are now in Cincinnati, and Xavier Rhodes, who struggled for much of the season, was released earlier this month. Adding help at cornerback will be a priority this offseason. Igbinoghene quietly had a strong 2019 season, followed it up with a great combine and has shown the ability to match up with NFL WRs.
Round 1 - Pick 23
Wisconsin • Sr • 6'2" / 238 lbs
Projected Team
New England
PROSPECT RNK
35th
POSITION RNK
4th
Jamie Collins, Kyle Van Noy and Elandon Roberts are all gone (they landed in Detroit, Miami and Miami -- all home of former Pats assistant coaches) and Baun, who can play on the edge or at the linebacker position, has the type of versatility and smarts that makes it easy to connect him to New England.
Round 1 - Pick 24
Alabama • Sr • 6'1" / 205 lbs
Projected Team
New Orleans
PROSPECT RNK
28th
POSITION RNK
4th
The Saints let Eli Apple walk and PJ Williams is on the open market. Janoris Jenkins has one more year left on his deal but with Tom Brady now in the division, it might be wise to stock up on physical, play-making cornerbacks.
Round 1 - Pick 25
LSU • Jr • 6'1" / 202 lbs
Projected Team
Minnesota
PROSPECT RNK
31st
POSITION RNK
5th
Stefon Diggs is now in Buffalo and Jefferson was a monster out of the slot last season for LSU. He would quickly become a favorite target of Kirk Cousins in Minnesota.
Round 1 - Pick 26
Alabama • Jr • 6'0" / 201 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
17th
POSITION RNK
1st
The Dolphins released Reshad Jones and the plan seems to be to stockpile defensive backs. Miami signed Byron Jones and McKinney's versatility means he can line up all over the field.
Round 1 - Pick 27
Penn State • Jr • 6'5" / 266 lbs
Projected Team
Seattle
PROSPECT RNK
21st
POSITION RNK
4th
Jadeveon Clowney is a free agent and 2019 first-rounder L.J. Collier isn't a pure pass rusher. Gross-Matos is raw but he's only going to get better.
Round 1 - Pick 28
LSU • Jr • 6'0" / 229 lbs
Projected Team
Baltimore
PROSPECT RNK
34th
POSITION RNK
3rd
The Ravens defense improved as the 2019 season progressed, and while Josh Bynes played out of his mind, he's 30 and now a free agent. Queen had an impressive year for LSU and he has the type of athleticism to excel in Wink Martindale's system in Baltimore.
Round 1 - Pick 29
TCU • Sr • 5'10" / 191 lbs
Projected Team
Tennessee
PROSPECT RNK
36th
POSITION RNK
6th
Logan Ryan and Tramaine Brock were two of the Titans' top three cornerbacks and both are now free agents. Even if Tennessee brings back one (or both), you can never have enough defensive backs on the roster. Gladney quietly had a standout season for the Horned Frogs and he might be one of the best cover corners in this draft class.
Round 1 - Pick 30
Oklahoma • Sr • 6'2" / 304 lbs
Projected Team
Green Bay
PROSPECT RNK
27th
POSITION RNK
3rd
Kenny Clark was the Packers' best interior defensive linemen last season, but after that the group is in need of some depth. Gallimore's strong combine came on the heels of a great Senior Bowl and a solid 2019 season for the Sooners.
Round 1 - Pick 31
Clemson • Jr • 6'1" / 195 lbs
Projected Team
San Francisco
PROSPECT RNK
30th
POSITION RNK
5th
Terrell was lost in the mix the last month or so while other CBs moved up draft boards. But he was the best cornerback in the ACC and he has a chance to be better than former teammate and Raiders 2019 second-rounder Trayvon Mullen.
Round 1 - Pick 32
Michigan • Jr • 6'3" / 307 lbs
Projected Team
Kansas City
PROSPECT RNK
67th
POSITION RNK
13th
The Chiefs' offense has few holes but it could stand to upgrade the interior O-line. Ruiz is the best center in this class and he'll have a chance to earn the starting job on Day 1.

Round 2
Round 2 - Pick 1 (33)
Oklahoma • Jr • 6'3" / 241 lbs
Projected Team
Cincinnati
PROSPECT RNK
25th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Bengals found a new leader of the offense in Round 1, and here they get one for the other side of the ball.
Round 2 - Pick 2 (34)
Arizona State • Sr • 6'0" / 205 lbs
Projected Team
Indianapolis
PROSPECT RNK
38th
POSITION RNK
7th
After trading their first-rounder for DeForest Buckner, the Colts circle back at the top of the second round to get one of the most explosive wideouts in this draft. Aiyuk is a four-down player who is only going to get better with experience.
Round 2 - Pick 3 (35)
Georgia • Jr • 5'8" / 212 lbs
Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
41st
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Lions add one of the top backs in the draft, lifting some of the load at the running back position off Kerryon Johnson's shoulders. A 1-2 punch of Swift and Johnson should be tough for opposing defenses.
Round 2 - Pick 4 (36)
Minnesota • Soph • 5'9" / 203 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Giants
PROSPECT RNK
54th
POSITION RNK
4th
The Giants add a talented safety with NFL pedigree to their secondary.
Round 2 - Pick 5 (37)
Ohio State • Jr • 5'10" / 209 lbs
Projected Team
L.A. Chargers
PROSPECT RNK
52nd
POSITION RNK
3rd
The Chargers locked up Austin Ekeler long-term, but that doesn't mean it's time to load him up with 300-plus touches. Dobbins can help contribute to what could be one of the league's best RB tandems.
Round 2 - Pick 6 (38)
Iowa • Jr • 6'5" / 275 lbs
Projected Team
Carolina
PROSPECT RNK
16th
POSITION RNK
3rd
Epenesa falls out of the first round after a mediocre combine, but that makes him a great value here for a Carolina team in the midst of a rebuild.
Round 2 - Pick 7 (39)
Wisconsin • Jr • 5'10" / 226 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
24th
POSITION RNK
1st
The Dolphins threw a ton of money around in free agency, and here they get a new lead back to help make the offense go.
Round 2 - Pick 8 (40)
TCU • Jr • 5'11" / 206 lbs
Projected Team
Houston
PROSPECT RNK
45th
POSITION RNK
9th
The Texans got this pick as the main asset for trading away DeAndre Hopkins, and they turn right around and use it on another difference-maker at the receiver position.
Round 2 - Pick 9 (41)
California • Sr • 6'1" / 202 lbs
Projected Team
Cleveland
PROSPECT RNK
42nd
POSITION RNK
3rd
The Browns need to do some work on each level of the defense, and here they get one of the draft's most talented safeties to play a key role.
Round 2 - Pick 10 (42)
Auburn • Sr • 6'3" / 303 lbs
Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
56th
POSITION RNK
5th
The Jaguars watched a ton of defensive talent leave over the last year-plus, and now it's time to build the next version of the unit. Davidson will look to fill the large space left by Calais Campbell's trade to Baltimore.
Round 2 - Pick 11 (43)
Washington • Jr • 6'6" / 231 lbs
Projected Team
Chicago
PROSPECT RNK
39th
POSITION RNK
5th
Yes, the Bears just added a QB, but Nick Foles can't be the only long-term plan at the position. Eason doesn't have to be rushed as the team looks to develop him into a franchise QB.
Round 2 - Pick 12 (44)
Louisiana • Sr • 6'5" / 323 lbs
Projected Team
Indianapolis
PROSPECT RNK
83rd
POSITION RNK
16th
The Colts offense is strong up front, but the depth behind the starting unit is suspect. That's where Hunt comes in.
Round 2 - Pick 13 (45)
TCU • Sr • 6'6" / 315 lbs
Projected Team
Tampa Bay
PROSPECT RNK
64th
POSITION RNK
12th
The Bucs have their quarterback, and now it's time to protect him. Niang should stick at one tackle spot long-term for the team.
Round 2 - Pick 14 (46)
Boise State • Jr • 6'6" / 311 lbs
Projected Team
Denver
PROSPECT RNK
49th
POSITION RNK
7th
Cleveland saw his stock rise after an excellent combine, and he'd be a great fit for the Broncos in a role they can figure out down the road.
Round 2 - Pick 15 (47)
Alabama • Sr • 6'5" / 262 lbs
Projected Team
Atlanta
PROSPECT RNK
46th
POSITION RNK

The Falcons need to improve their pass rush and Lewis is coming off a strong 2019 campaign for the Crimson Tide.
Round 2 - Pick 16 (48)
Notre Dame • Sr • 6'4" / 252 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Jets
PROSPECT RNK
44th
POSITION RNK

The Jets have to do something about their pass rush, and here they land some edge help to get more pressure on opposing QBs.
Round 2 - Pick 17 (49)
LSU • Jr • 5'7" / 207 lbs
Projected Team
Pittsburgh
PROSPECT RNK
80th
POSITION RNK
5th
James Conner has had his moments for Pittsburgh, but more talent needs to be added moving forward. Edwards-Helaire is a well-rounded player who can serve as a feature back long-term.
Round 2 - Pick 18 (50)
Utah • Jr • 6'0" / 193 lbs
Projected Team
Chicago
PROSPECT RNK
57th
POSITION RNK
9th
The Bears strengthen a defense that took a step back in 2019 by adding talent at cornerback in the form of Johnson, who could go as early as the first round.
Round 2 - Pick 19 (51)
Mississippi State • Jr • 6'2" / 188 lbs
Projected Team
Dallas
PROSPECT RNK
63rd
POSITION RNK
11th
Dantzler isn't going to come in and make anyone forget about Byron Jones, but he helps the cornerback position get deeper for Dallas and he could emerge as a starter quickly.

USC • Jr • 6'5" / 322 lbs
Projected Team
L.A. Rams
PROSPECT RNK
47th
POSITION RNK

Jeremy Chinn S
Southern Illinois • Jr • 6'3" / 221 lbs
Projected Team
Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK

Michigan • Sr • 6'1" / 245 lbs
Projected Team
Buffalo
PROSPECT RNK
46th
POSITION RNK
6th

Clemson • Sr • 6'4" / 321 lbs
Projected Team
Baltimore
PROSPECT RNK
50th
POSITION RNK
8th

LSU • Jr • 6'3" / 312 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
60th

Florida State • Jr • 5'10" / 217 lbs
Projected Team
Houston
PROSPECT RNK
55th
POSITION RNK

Minnesota

Dallas

103rd
POSITION RNK
8th

Denver

New England
PROSPECT RNK
82nd
POSITION RNK
