A few recent quotes from Burrow have allowed some to speculate that the reigning Heisman winner will spurn Cincinnati. I highly doubt that happens.

Alabama

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

3rd

POSITION RNK

2nd

Is Miami technically “considering” every quarterback prospect right now? Sure. But Tagovailoa still feels like the front-runner, and the organization doesn’t want to lose out on the opportunity to pick him, so they move up to do so.

Ohio State

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

POSITION RNK

1st

The Lions signed Trey Flowers in free agency a year ago but still have a pass-rushing problem. And that issue is fixed with Young at No. 3.

Iowa

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

13th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Wide receiver will be tempting here for GM Dave Gettleman, but I think he ultimately goes with an offensive tackle to protect Daniel Jones. Wirfs was good in 2018 then took his game to another level in 2019, and he spent time at right and left tackle.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 230 lbs

Projected Team

Washington

PROSPECT RNK

5th

POSITION RNK

1st

Where did Ron Rivera last coach? Carolina. Who was the heartbeat of his defense during his time there? Luke Kuechly. Simmons has Kuechly type athletic gifts and can cover like a safety. The Redskins could use an infusion of talent at essentially every position. In their trade with Miami, Washington gets this pick, Miami’s third first-rounder (No. 26), a third-rounder (No. 70), and Miami’s second fifth-rounder (No. 148).

Oregon

• Sr

• 6’6″

/ 237 lbs

Do the Chargers go the trade or free-agent route to find their next quarterback? Hmmm. If they can’t land one, they could go with Herbert, who wouldn’t have to start right away, and could ultimately be a game-manager early in his career.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 200 lbs

Projected Team

Carolina

PROSPECT RNK

4th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Panthers are probably going to lose James Bradberry in free agency, and with Okudah falling into their lap, this is an easy, home-run pick at the start of the Matt Rhule era.

Alabama

• 6’1″

/ 192 lbs

Projected Team

Arizona

PROSPECT RNK

11th

POSITION RNK

2nd

I’m guessing Jeudy is going to run noticeably faster than CeeDee Lamb at the Combine, which could (see: should) push many folks to crown him as WR1 in this class. Kliff Kingsbury gets Kyler Murray a stud pass catcher.

Auburn

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 318 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

6th

POSITION RNK

1st

Brown needs to get more effective as a pass rusher when he can’t simply bull rush guards into the quarterback, but he’s immensely powerful right now and is the best run defender in the class.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 320 lbs

Projected Team

Cleveland

PROSPECT RNK

9th

POSITION RNK

1st

Wills is a great athlete for his size, and the right side of the Browns offensive line was downright disastrous in 2019. A perfect fit for Baker Mayfield and Co.

Georgia

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 320 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

10th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Jets GM Joe Douglas spent many years in Philadelphia with Jason Peters at left tackle, and with this pick, he envisions Thomas being that type of high-caliber blindside protector for Sam Darnold.

Oklahoma

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 189 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

8th

POSITION RNK

1st

This pick will work wonders for ticket sales and generating hype in Las Vegas. Lamb adds a fun, big-play element to the Raiders’ offense.

Arizona State

• Sr

• 6’1″

/ 206 lbs

Projected Team

Indianapolis

PROSPECT RNK

42nd

POSITION RNK

6th

Philip Rivers seems destined for Indianapolis given his connections to some coaches there. With him there, Indianapolis should add to its receiver group, and with a big combine, Aiyuk is primed to skyrocket up boards.

South Carolina

• Sr

• 6’6″

/ 310 lbs

Projected Team

Tampa Bay

PROSPECT RNK

7th

POSITION RNK

2nd

How about a Tampa Bay defensive front with Shaq Barrett, Vita Vea, and Kinlaw. Studly.

Colorado

Denver

PROSPECT RNK

30th

POSITION RNK

5th

Shenault was born to play in a West Coast offense, and that’s Broncos new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur’s scheme. If he can stay healthy, he can be a star thanks to his size, YAC-skills, and pure speed.

Iowa

• Jr

• 6’6″

/ 280 lbs

Projected Team

Atlanta

PROSPECT RNK

12th

POSITION RNK

2nd

The Falcons need more pass rushers. Epenesa is ready to be a three-down player thanks to his length, power, edge-setting ability, and pass-rushing moves.

Oklahoma

• Sr

• 6’2″

/ 302 lbs

Projected Team

Dallas

PROSPECT RNK

21st

POSITION RNK

3rd

Gallimore is a former nose tackle turned penetrating three-technique, and his burst will be fully accentuated in Rod Marinelli’s defense.

LSU

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

14th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Understanding the depth of the offensive tackle class, the Dolphins go edge rusher here with Chaisson, an explosive, polished defender around the corner.

Oklahoma

• 6’2″

/ 234 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

26th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Things work out perfectly for the Raiders and they get their quarterback of the defense in Murray. I expect him to test similarly to 2019 first-round linebackers Devin White and Devin Bush.

Houston

• Sr

• 6’7″

/ 310 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

28th

POSITION RNK

5th

The Cam Robinson experiment could be over and that would leave Jacksonville with a gaping hole at left tackle. Insert Jones, a tall, powerful, and athletic blocker with game film that was significantly more consistent than Robinson’s, albeit against a significantly lower level of competition.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 215 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

23rd

POSITION RNK

4th

This is too perfect. Higgins provides the Eagles with a deep threat and just so happens to be around 6-foot-4 with immaculate ball skills.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 190 lbs

Projected Team

Buffalo

PROSPECT RNK

17th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Ruggs wouldn’t add much size to the Bills’ receiver group, but good luck covering a due of Ruggs, John Brown, and Cole Beasley in man or zone coverage.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 203 lbs

Projected Team

New England

PROSPECT RNK

22nd

POSITION RNK

2nd

Given the age of the Patriots starting safeties, and the fact that Devin McCourty is set to become a free agent this March, Bill Belichick goes with Delpit, a tall, athletic, versatile safety with better play-making skill in coverage than against the run.

TCU

• Jr

• 5’11”

/ 195 lbs

Projected Team

New Orleans

PROSPECT RNK

43rd

POSITION RNK

7th

It is difficult to do a mock and not send Reagor to the Saints, a team with Drew Brees and Michael Thomas but a clear need at No. 2 wide receiver.

Alabama

• Sr

• 6’2″

/ 207 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

24th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Diggs is a physical, press-man cornerback who can instantly replace an aging Xavier Rhodes in Mike Zimmer’s scheme.

Louisville

• Jr

• 6’7″

/ 369 lbs

Projected Team

Washington

PROSPECT RNK

16th

POSITION RNK

4th

It’s a dream come true for the Redskins here with Becton. And while right now, it may seem like there’s no way he lasts until No. 26 overall, at least one of the consensus “top” offensive tackles will likely be here. Trent Williams has been an absolute rock for Washington, but with him turning 32 in 2020, the last year of the extension he signed in 2015, the team very well could (and maybe should) trade him this offseason.

USC

• Jr

• 6’6″

/ 310 lbs

Projected Team

Seattle

PROSPECT RNK

47th

POSITION RNK

6th

Jackson could very well test as the most athletic tackle in the class and he is a smooth mover — this plays perfectly into what GM John Schneider loves at the position (and all positions).

Boise State

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 265 lbs

Projected Team

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

39th

POSITION RNK

6th

The Ravens adore heavy, outside linebacker types to rush the passer. That’s precisely what Weaver is, and before his injury in 2019, he was on track to get selected in the Top 20 overall.

Michigan

• Sr

• 6’2″

/ 250 lbs

Projected Team

Tennessee

PROSPECT RNK

66th

POSITION RNK

8th

With Uche, the Titans would get an awesome linebacker-edge rusher hybrid with juice around the corner and a dazzling inside counter.

LSU

• 6’1″

/ 227 lbs

Projected Team

Green Bay

PROSPECT RNK

41st

POSITION RNK

3rd

Queen really looks like a safety on the field, from his size to his change-of-direction skills, and acceleration. And that’s not a not bad thing in today’s NFL.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 200 lbs

McKinney is as active as they come in run support and consistently made plays in coverage in Nick Saban’s pro-style scheme.

TCU

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 305 lbs

Projected Team

Kansas City

PROSPECT RNK

29th

POSITION RNK

4th

In this scenario, the Chiefs can’t retain Chris Jones, so they go with a super-athlete on the interior of the defensive line in hopes of replacing some of his production.
