Watch Now: Biggest Takeaways From CBS Sports HQ Mock Draft (6:50)

As we're getting close to the 2020 NFL Draft, it's time to really hone on what we think will happen on draft night. And while I've fluctuated slightly on Tua Tagovailoa landing spots over the past few months, I do believe he'll be wearing Miami Dolphins aqua this season. Also, because the draft is in fewer than 20 days, of course, a myriad of trades are featured in this mock. 

Before we get to the picks, these are the terms of the four trades I have in Round 1: 

  • Dolphins get No. 3; Lions get No. 5, No. 39, a 2021 second-round pick and Albert Wilson
  • Buccaneers get No. 8, No. 202; Cardinals get No. 14, No. 45, No. 117
  • Dolphins get No. 13; 49ers get No. 18, No. 70, No. 141
  • Broncos get No. 11; Jets get No. 15, No. 77, No. 181

OK, let's get to it.

The Redskins probably won't get enough of a trade offer to move out of this selection.
  Mock Trade from Detroit Lions
Round 1 - Pick 3
Alabama • 6'0" / 217 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
5th
POSITION RNK
2nd
Brian Flores and Matt Patricia are buds. To me, the Dolphins are creating smoke that they don't like Tagovailoa so teams won't feel as compelled to move in front of them to pick him.
Round 1 - Pick 4
Alabama • 6'4" / 312 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Giants
PROSPECT RNK
6th
POSITION RNK
1st
Wills fits the mold of the run-game specialist Dave Gettleman likely adores. And he plugs in at right tackle instantly, keeping Nate Solder on the left side.
  Mock Trade from Miami Dolphins
Round 1 - Pick 5
Ohio State • 6'1" / 200 lbs
Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
4th
POSITION RNK

This development represents the best-case scenario for the Lions. They move back, get an extra second-round pick, and still land Okudah.
Round 1 - Pick 6
Oregon • 6'6" / 236 lbs
Projected Team
L.A. Chargers
PROSPECT RNK
20th
POSITION RNK
4th
If the board falls this way, the Chargers would probably be one of the few teams willing to pass on Isaiah Simmons here. Herbert is Los Angeles' quarterback of the future.
Round 1 - Pick 7
Clemson • 6'4" / 238 lbs
Projected Team
Carolina
PROSPECT RNK
3rd
POSITION RNK
1st
Simmons is a no-brainer here for Carolina unless Matt Rhule's club can trade back. Super athlete. Incredibly multi-dimensional.
  Mock Trade from Arizona Cardinals
Round 1 - Pick 8
Iowa • 6'5" / 320 lbs
Projected Team
Tampa Bay
PROSPECT RNK
9th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Buccaneers can't wait around for a top offensive tackle to fall to them. So they act aggressively and fit Wirfs in at right tackle where there's currently a vacancy.
Round 1 - Pick 9
Utah State • 6'4" / 219 lbs
Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
19th
POSITION RNK
3rd
GM Dave Caldwell and HC Doug Marrone are on the hot seat, which catalyzes them to make a bold move at the game's most vital position.
Round 1 - Pick 10
Georgia • 6'5" / 315 lbs
Projected Team
Cleveland
PROSPECT RNK
15th
POSITION RNK
4th
This should be an absolute slam dunk for the Browns. Andrew Thomas has franchise left tackle tools and the Browns still need a game-changer at that position.
  Mock Trade from New York Jets
Round 1 - Pick 11
Alabama • 6'0" / 190 lbs
Projected Team
Denver
PROSPECT RNK
14th
POSITION RNK
3rd
From his time in Baltimore, Jets GM Joe Douglas knows the value in trading back. Even with all the receivers on the board, he moves back, allowing Denver to take one. Ruggs and Courtland Sutton formulate an awesomely complementary receiver duo in Denver.
Round 1 - Pick 12
Alabama • 6'1" / 193 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
12th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Raiders want another talented wideout option and with the top four receivers gone, they don't hesitate to pick Jeudy.
  Mock Trade from San Francisco 49ers
Round 1 - Pick 13
Louisville • 6'7" / 364 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
11th
POSITION RNK
3rd
With most of the top offensive tackles unavailable at this juncture, the Dolphins use an extra fourth-round selection to move up with the 49ers to pick who they hope will be their franchise left tackle for a long time.
  Mock Trade from Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Round 1 - Pick 14
Florida • 6'1" / 204 lbs
Projected Team
Arizona
PROSPECT RNK
18th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Cardinals don't love how the offensive tackle board looks like right now, so they go best player available.
  Mock Trade from Denver Broncos
Round 1 - Pick 15
Oklahoma • 6'2" / 189 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Jets
PROSPECT RNK
8th
POSITION RNK

The Jets' trade back pays off in a huge way. They get a third and a sixth from Denver and still get Lamb inside the top half of Round 1.
Round 1 - Pick 16
LSU • 6'3" / 254 lbs
Projected Team
Atlanta
PROSPECT RNK
13th
POSITION RNK
2nd
I can't get off this prospect-team pairing. Chaisson has All-Pro abilities and the Falcons have to get more talent on the edge.

Auburn • 6'5" / 325 lbs
Projected Team
Dallas
PROSPECT RNK
7th
POSITION RNK
1st
Yes, the Cowboys signed Gerald McCoy and Dontari Poe in free agency. Neither is a long-term solution at defensive tackle.
  Mock Trade from Miami Dolphins
Round 1 - Pick 18
Baylor • 6'3" / 207 lbs
Projected Team
San Francisco
PROSPECT RNK
43rd
POSITION RNK

Mims isn't exactly a yards-after-the-catch specialist, but he diversifies San Francisco's receiver room.
Round 1 - Pick 19
LSU • 5'11" / 197 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
22nd
POSITION RNK
3rd
After getting an electric wideout earlier in the first round, the Raiders grab a lockdown corner with slot flexibility here.
Round 1 - Pick 20
South Carolina • 6'5" / 319 lbs
Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
10th
POSITION RNK
2nd
Sure, the Jaguars have used a bunch of first-round picks on defensive linemen of late, but with Calais Campbell gone, they have to rebuild that position. Kinlaw's too good to pass up.
Round 1 - Pick 21
LSU • 6'1" / 202 lbs
Projected Team
Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK
31st
POSITION RNK
5th
Instead of moving up for a consensus top receiver, the Eagles stay patient and still get Jefferson.
Round 1 - Pick 22
TCU • 5'11" / 197 lbs
Projected Team
Minnesota
PROSPECT RNK
45th
POSITION RNK
9th
Reagor is a springy, explosive wideout who steps in the vacancy left by the Stefon Diggs trade.
Round 1 - Pick 23
Iowa • 6'6" / 280 lbs
Projected Team
New England
PROSPECT RNK
16th
POSITION RNK
3rd
Epenesa isn't too different from former Patriots star Trey Flowers, a long, handwork specialist who can play anywhere along the defensive line.
Round 1 - Pick 24
LSU • 6'1" / 227 lbs
Projected Team
New Orleans
PROSPECT RNK
34th
POSITION RNK

Round 1 - Pick 25
TCU • 5'10" / 191 lbs
Projected Team
Minnesota
PROSPECT RNK
36th
POSITION RNK
6th

Round 1 - Pick 26
Alabama • 6'0" / 201 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK

Michigan • 6'4" / 319 lbs
Projected Team
Baltimore
PROSPECT RNK
67th
POSITION RNK
13th
Have to go back to this pairing, because it's exquisite. Ruiz is a wide, athletic run-blocking specialist at center who's still 20 years old.
Round 1 - Pick 29
Houston • 6'5" / 319 lbs
Projected Team
Tennessee
PROSPECT RNK
32nd
POSITION RNK
5th
The Titans need an instant replacement for Jack Conklin at right tackle, and although Jones played on the left side at Houston, he fits here.
Round 1 - Pick 30
Colorado • 6'1" / 227 lbs
Projected Team
Green Bay
PROSPECT RNK
33rd
POSITION RNK
6th
Shenault is a freak after the catch because he's so tough to bring to the turf and twitchy for a large, compact receiver.
Round 1 - Pick 31
Auburn • 5'11" / 197 lbs
Projected Team
San Francisco
PROSPECT RNK
37th
POSITION RNK
7th
Igbinoghene should sneak into Round 1 based on his flexibility, electric movement skills, and fine film in only his second year playing cornerback in 2019.
Round 1 - Pick 32
Missouri • 6'4" / 302 lbs
Projected Team
Kansas City
PROSPECT RNK
72nd
POSITION RNK
7th

N.Y. Giants
PROSPECT RNK
44th
POSITION RNK

Penn State • 5'9" / 178 lbs
Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
59th

Houston
PROSPECT RNK
26th

Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
57th

Ben Bartch OL
NFL Draft • 6'6" / 309 lbs
Projected Team
Denver
PROSPECT RNK
113th
POSITION RNK
24th

Round 2 - Pick 15 (47)
Alabama • 6'2" / 195 lbs
Projected Team
Atlanta
PROSPECT RNK
28th

Jeremy Chinn S
Southern Illinois • 6'3" / 220 lbs
Projected Team
Dallas
PROSPECT RNK

The Seahawks love using play-action and chucking it deep. Swift would give Russell Wilson a dynamic receiving option out of the backfield.
