Watch Now: NFL Mock Draft: Jordan Love Falls Out Of Round 1 (2:02)

Without a gossip-filled pro day circuit during the pre-draft cycle, we didn't get nearly as many juicy rumors leading into the 2020 NFL Draft, so mock drafts are probably going to be, yes, way worse than usual. 

But it's all good. I still think a boatload of receivers and offensive tackles are going in Round 1, and Tua Tagovailoa will fall out of the top five.

(There's a distinct possibility the Dolphins have orchestrated the purposeful smear job of the century with Tagovailoa so they don't have to trade up for him, I just think there's too much smoke for all the rumors about him falling out of the top five to be completely fabricated.)

This is my final 2020 NFL mock draft. 

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

  • Falcons get No. 8 overall; Cardinals get No. 16, No. 47
  • Dolphins get No. 13 overall; 49ers get No. 18, No. 70, No. 141
  • Eagles get No. 19 overall, Raiders get No. 21, No. 127, No. 145

And the four trades I have in Round 2:

  • Giants get No. 33 overall; Bengals get No. 36, No. 150, No. 218
  • Buccaneers get No. 40 overall; Texans get No. 45, No. 117
  • Colts get No. 41 overall; Browns get No. 44, No. 122
  • Seahawks get No. 54 overall; Bills get No. 59, No. 101

OK, let's get to it.

Round 1 - Pick 1
LSU • 6'4" / 221 lbs

Cincinnati
PROSPECT RNK

Soon, the only guarantee in this first round will be locked in. Burrow to Bengals.
Round 1 - Pick 2
Ohio State • 6'5" / 264 lbs
Projected Team
Washington
PROSPECT RNK
1st
POSITION RNK
1st
As they should, the Redskins are making a final effort to drum up interest in this pick for a trade back. But ultimately, I doubt they get blown away with an offer.
Round 1 - Pick 3
Ohio State • 6'1" / 200 lbs
Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
4th
POSITION RNK
1st
I've officially flipped. I don't see Tua Tagovailoa going inside the top five anymore. The Lions would love to move down. Instead, they aren't blown away by an offer and pick Okudah to become their No. 1 cornerback right away.
Round 1 - Pick 4
Iowa • 6'5" / 320 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Giants
PROSPECT RNK
7th
POSITION RNK

How about a non-surprise from Dave Gettleman. Wirfs to the G-Men.
Round 1 - Pick 5
Oregon • 6'6" / 236 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
18th
POSITION RNK
3rd
It wouldn't shock me if this was an offensive tackle, but I guess the real shock would be no Tagovailoa to the Dolphins.
Round 1 - Pick 6
Alabama • 6'0" / 217 lbs
Projected Team
L.A. Chargers
PROSPECT RNK
5th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Chargers simply cannot pass on Tagovailoa here. And with Tyrod Taylor on the roster, there won't be a major need to rush Tagovailoa onto the field in 2020.
Round 1 - Pick 7
Clemson • 6'4" / 238 lbs
Projected Team
Carolina
PROSPECT RNK
3rd
POSITION RNK
1st
This is a Matt Rhule type of prospect. Simmons is a lab-created player who will help usher in the new era of the positionless second-level defender.

Round 1 - Pick 8
Florida • 6'1" / 204 lbs
Projected Team
Atlanta
PROSPECT RNK

Round 1 - Pick 9
Auburn • 6'5" / 325 lbs
Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
6th
POSITION RNK
1st
After trading Calais Campbell this offseason, the Jaguars could use more beef on the interior of their defensive line. They'd get that with the ultra-powerful Brown.
Round 1 - Pick 10
Georgia • 6'5" / 315 lbs
Projected Team
Cleveland
PROSPECT RNK
11th
POSITION RNK
3rd
The Browns could move out of this pick, but with Thomas -- a true left tackle -- on the board and the Jets picking right after them, the Browns don't get too cute, and just pick him.
Round 1 - Pick 11
Louisville • 6'7" / 364 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Jets
PROSPECT RNK
13th
POSITION RNK
4th
With a loaded receiver group and a top-heavy offensive tackle class, the Jets go with Becton here.
Round 1 - Pick 12
Alabama • 6'1" / 193 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
12th
POSITION RNK
2nd
Jeudy's route-running precision gives him the nod over Lamb and Ruggs here for the Raiders.

Alabama • 6'4" / 312 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
8th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Dolphins need all the offensive line help they can get, and instead of waiting and hoping a top prospect at that position falls to them at No. 18 overall, they get aggressive and trade up for Wills.
Round 1 - Pick 14
Houston • 6'5" / 319 lbs
Projected Team
Tampa Bay
PROSPECT RNK
18th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Buccaneers pick the well-rounded Jones to man the right tackle spot for Tom Brady's club.

Oklahoma • 6'2" / 189 lbs
Projected Team
Arizona
PROSPECT RNK
10th
POSITION RNK
1st
Would the Cardinals have liked an offensive tackle here? Sure. But Lamb is too sensational of a prospect to pass up, as is the ability to pair him with Kyler Murray. Giddy up.
Round 1 - Pick 17
LSU • 6'3" / 254 lbs
Projected Team
Dallas
PROSPECT RNK
14th
POSITION RNK

The Cowboys need to add more juice to the pass rush, and Chaisson gives them that in a big way.

Baylor • 6'3" / 207 lbs
Projected Team
Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK
40th
POSITION RNK
8th

Clemson • 6'1" / 195 lbs
Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
25th
POSITION RNK

Terrell is a long, superb athlete who finds the football routinely and can mirror down the field. Prudent -- non-flashy -- pick for the Jaguars here.

Alabama • 6'2" / 195 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
30th
POSITION RNK
5th
While his long speed and awareness when the football is arriving are in question, Diggs is a physically dominant press man cornerback that'd bring a real edge to the Raiders secondary at the corner spot.

TCU • 5'11" / 197 lbs
Projected Team
Minnesota
PROSPECT RNK
41st
POSITION RNK
9th
Finding a replacement for Stefon Diggs is a must, and Reagor has super-slippery tendencies on the field and freaky downfield explosion.

New England
PROSPECT RNK

PROSPECT RNK
54th
POSITION RNK
9th
With Jackson, he could go into 2020 in a competition with Riley Reiff at left tackle but doesn't have to be rushed onto the field. He needs time to get stronger but the physical tools are there.
