There’s no reason to think the Bengals will go in a different direction here other than Burrow.

Ohio State

Projected Team

Washington

PROSPECT RNK

1st

POSITION RNK

1st

The sense I get is the Redskins would love to bluff someone into coming up for Tua, but no one will be willing to give them the requisite picks (aka the RG3 package) to do so. Standing pat and taking Young is plenty fine.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 238 lbs

Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

3rd

POSITION RNK

1st

Do-it-all linebacker/safety hybrid makes a lot of sense for a Bill Belichick protege like Matt Patricia to draft. That would be one thing about the Lions’ offseason that makes sense, so that’s good.

Louisville

• Jr

• 6’7″

/ 364 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

11th

POSITION RNK

3rd

It is NOT hard to picture Dave Gettleman fawning over the “rhair” (rare) physical traits and athleticism that Becton possesses. The Giants also need help on the offensive line and Gettleman has spent free agency addressing the defense primarily.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 217 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

5th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Tua’s draft stock is in flux with people wondering about his health status, and the coronavirus situation probably isn’t helping him much in terms of being able to prove he’s healthy in person. That could benefit the Dolphins by allowing them to sit back and land him with the fifth overall pick.

Oregon

• Sr

• 6’6″

/ 236 lbs

The Chargers are really going to just roll with Tyrod Taylor as their only option at quarterback? Come on. They’re gonna dive in during the draft.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Carolina

PROSPECT RNK

4th

POSITION RNK

1st

No clue what the Panthers are doing but I think they would be fine snaring one of the draft’s top prospects at No. 7 overall.

Iowa

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 320 lbs

Projected Team

Arizona

PROSPECT RNK

9th

POSITION RNK

2nd

With the Cards landing DeAndre Hopkins via trade they don’t need to worry about grabbing a wideout here and can focus on improving the offensive line.

Auburn

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 326 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

7th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Jags are clearly rebooting so there’s no need to pigeonhole them with a particular position here. Give them the best player on the board.

Georgia

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 315 lbs

Projected Team

Cleveland

PROSPECT RNK

15th

POSITION RNK

4th

The Browns have had a very impressive offseason so far — adding more protection for Baker Mayfield should be paramount.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 193 lbs

Projected Team

PROSPECT RNK

12th

POSITION RNK

2nd

The Jets could definitely still go offensive line here, but I think their free agency plan is setting them up to give Sam Darnold some weaponry, especially considering the likely departure of Robby Anderson.

Oklahoma

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 198 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

8th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Jets going with a WR at 11 could potentially spark a run that people haven’t suggested could come. Lamb makes a world of sense in Jon Gruden’s offense.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 312 lbs

The 49ers landed this choice draft pick in the DeForest Buckner trade but they’re pretty good at DL so why not grab a potential Joe Staley replacement instead?

Utah State

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 224 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

19th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Yes, the Raiders already got Marcus Mariota and they have Derek Carr, but I don’t think Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden are satisfied yet. There’s not an ideal guy for Tampa at 14, so they make sense as a trade down partner here.

Alabama

• Jr

• 5’11”

/ 188 lbs

Projected Team

Denver

PROSPECT RNK

14th

POSITION RNK

3rd

The Broncos could use one more weapon alongside Courtland Sutton to really put this offense in a position to help Drew Lock in 2020.

Iowa

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 275 lbs

Projected Team

Atlanta

PROSPECT RNK

16th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Atlanta’s always in the market for a pass rusher and should absolutely be looking for help on defense heading into this season.

Alabama

• Sr

• 6’1″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Dallas

PROSPECT RNK

28th

POSITION RNK

4th

Losing Byron Jones in free agency is a pretty big blow for this defense. Adding a star cornerback in the draft could go a long way to mitigate the damage.

South Carolina

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 324 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

10th

POSITION RNK

2nd

I’m not sure the Dolphins will be obsessed with landing any particular player or position, rather just getting the best players they can find. Kinlaw and Christian Wilkins on the interior would be outstanding.

Houston

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 319 lbs

Projected Team

Tampa Bay

PROSPECT RNK

32nd

POSITION RNK

5th

The Bucs have to improve the offensive line with Tom Brady in the fold. Another trade down could even make sense, but Jones is rising in this draft process.

Florida

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 204 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

18th

POSITION RNK

2nd

I love a good spite pick, and this would be a prime spite selection if the Jaguars added a cornerback with the pick they got from the Jalen Ramsey trade.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 202 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

31st

POSITION RNK

5th

Wouldn’t rule out a trade down here, but the Eagles want to improve the wide receiver position and Jefferson isn’t going to sit on the board forever.

Penn State

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 266 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

21st

POSITION RNK

4th

Adding a cornerback will definitely be a priority for Minnesota but they can wait a few picks with the options on the board. Here, they focus on replacing Everson Griffin and/or improving their defensive line and getting better against the run.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 213 lbs

Projected Team

New England

PROSPECT RNK

21st

POSITION RNK

4th

Duron Harmon was sent packing so the Patriots could very well choose to beef up their secondary here, although everything feels up in flux with New England choosing not to add to the quarterback position yet, outside of Jarrett Stidham.

Virginia

• Sr

• 6’1″

/ 202 lbs

Projected Team

New Orleans

PROSPECT RNK

40th

POSITION RNK

8th

The Saints adding another stud defensive player in this draft still makes a lot of sense to me. This is a roster also looking for depth — an offensive lineman wouldn’t be a surprise either.

LSU

• Sr

• 6’0″

/ 197 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

22nd

POSITION RNK

3rd

The Vikings not only love drafting cornerbacks but they actually need to draft a cornerback now. No one’s better at finding talent there than Mike Zimmer.

Notre Dame

• Sr

• 6’4″

/ 252 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

44th

POSITION RNK

5th

The Dolphins are just loading up on the defensive line in this draft and I don’t mind it one little bit, especially with what they’ve done on the secondary. If this defense is suddenly GREAT, Miami could end up being frisky in 2020.

LSU

• Soph

• 6’3″

/ 254 lbs

Projected Team

Seattle

PROSPECT RNK

13th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Explosive EDGE type of defender makes sense especially since we don’t know what will happen with Jadeveon Clowney just yet.

Colorado

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 227 lbs

Projected Team

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

33rd

POSITION RNK

6th

The Ravens have a loaded roster and I think they’ll go best player available here — grabbing a stud WR who fell because of injury feels like a fun thing to do in order to help out Lamar Jackson.

USC

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 322 lbs

Projected Team

Tennessee

PROSPECT RNK

47th

POSITION RNK

6th

With Jack Conklin departing, the Titans need to shore up the depth and talent on their offensive line.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 216 lbs

Projected Team

Green Bay

PROSPECT RNK

26th

POSITION RNK

4th

The Packers need to add another piece at receiver for Aaron Rodgers and this is a good draft to do it.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 5’10”

/ 209 lbs

Would Kyle Shanahan take a running back this early? Maybe he would for an explosive player like Dobbins who would fit nicely in terms of pass catching and explosive one-cut runs.

Georgia

• Jr

• 5’8″

/ 212 lbs

Projected Team

Kansas City

PROSPECT RNK

41st

POSITION RNK

2nd

I don’t know what to give the Chiefs in this draft. I do know they would probably consider trading out of the spot, but that they also could use some running back depth. Damien Williams has been a revelation in KC, but there’s nothing wrong with more talent in an Andy Reid offense.
