There’s been some buzz floating about the Dolphins trying to move up, but I’m not even sure the Bengals do it for three first-round picks. Burrow is going to the Bengals.

Washington

PROSPECT RNK

5th

POSITION RNK

2nd

In our CBS Sports HQ mock draft I had Tua going to Washington, so I’m going to ride it out here. Dan Snyder empowered Ron Rivera to win in Washington and Rivera needs to get his guy. He can give Dwayne Haskins/Kyle Allen a year to see what they have if need be and then go to Tua the following year or worst case just trade Tua.

Ohio State

Easy choice here for Detroit with Young sitting right there for the taking.

Dave Gettleman loves his hog mollies and Becton might be the hoggiest molly to ever hog molly.

Miami might want to trade up unless it really does love Herbert. Because otherwise the options are to play chicken at 18 or draft Herbert/Jordan Love here.

Ryan Wilson and I joined Chargers.com for a podcast and both ended up with this selection. I kind of love it — and only one or two things have to happen for the Bolts to land Okudah. That roster could be absolutely loaded if they get him in the secondary. They know they have to keep up with the Chiefs and there’s only one way to do that.

Clemson

Dream scenario for the Panthers? Simmons would be a really nice building block for them in Matt Rhule’s first draft.

With the DeAndre Hopkins trade, it sure does feel like the Cardinals will look to improve the offensive line for Kyler Murray moving forward.

Auburn

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

POSITION RNK

1st

The Jags’ direction this offseason is certainly confusing, but you can probably bank on them going defense with this pick, especially if Yannick Ngakoue is dealt out of town.

Alabama

• 6’4″

/ 312 lbs

Projected Team

Cleveland

PROSPECT RNK

6th

POSITION RNK

How do the Browns not go with an offensive lineman here? They need to keep protecting Baker Mayfield, even after signing Jack Conklin this offseason.

Alabama

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

How do you replace Robby Anderson? With a cleaner, better, faster receiver who is quickly drawing interest as a guy who could be the first receiver off the board in the draft.

Alabama

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

They’re not shy about guys from big schools. You can see Mike Mayock falling in love with Jeudy’s game, and you can definitely see how Jon Gruden would like Jeudy’s route-running in his offense.

Oklahoma

/ 198 lbs

Projected Team

Denver

PROSPECT RNK

POSITION RNK

Sensing a run on wide receivers, the Broncos make a move up to get a second guy to match up with Courtland Sutton.

Georgia

Tampa Bay

PROSPECT RNK

15th

POSITION RNK

Big time score here for the Bucs, who land a top tier tackle prospect without having to trade up. They really want this to play out.

South Carolina

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 324 lbs

The 49ers were happy with any of the three guys who just went, and here they get to replace DeForest Buckner while gaining extra draft capital (third-rounder) for their trouble.

Florida

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 204 lbs

Projected Team

Atlanta

PROSPECT RNK

18th

POSITION RNK

2nd

I don’t see anyway the Falcons don’t focus on defense with this pick and they are not exactly loaded at cornerback right now, so nabbing one of the top guys here makes a ton of sense.

Penn State

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 266 lbs

Projected Team

Dallas

PROSPECT RNK

The Cowboys signing Aldon Smith gives them a little wiggle room to snag another upside-filled pass rusher with room to grow.

Houston

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

First you get the quarterback, then you get the guy in charge of protecting the quarterback.

The Raiders getting out of this draft with an Alabama WR and an Alabama DB is a pretty, pretty, PRETTT-AH nice haul.

Utah State

What better way to buy yourself some time than by getting Gardner Minshew some competition at quarterback? Right now it’s just the ‘stache and Josh Dobbs. That ain’t gonna cut it.

LSU

Philadelphia

Is there a more widely-mocked pick than the LSU wide receiver to the Eagles?

LSU

The Vikings taking a cornerback with this pick feels like a fait accompli given Mike Zimmer’s tendencies.

It would be very Patriots of the Patriots to trade down here but I’ll give them one of the edge guys out of a stout LSU defense.

New Orleans

PROSPECT RNK

I’m assuming the Saints will be looking for an impact defensive player to supplement the offensive firepower they already have in an “all in” year for Drew Brees.

TCU

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

The Vikings got a cornerback and can now add a wide receiver to replace the departed Stefon Diggs.

Alabama

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

17th

POSITION RNK

1st

Miami could triple down on the offense here, but why not add a young stud on the back end of your secondary, which already features a hefty investment?

Wisconsin

• Sr

• 6’2″

/ 238 lbs

Projected Team

Seattle

PROSPECT RNK

35th

POSITION RNK

4th

Trade down or left field is always an option for the Seahawks, but going with a versatile edge guy is certainly a spot of need for Seattle.

Oklahoma

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

25th

POSITION RNK

2nd

The LB corps has been depleted a bit in recent years so this makes sense to improve the Ravens in 2020 as they gear up for a title run in Lamar Jackson’s third year as a starter.

Georgia

• 5’8″

/ 212 lbs

Projected Team

Tennessee

PROSPECT RNK

41st

POSITION RNK

2nd

Using a first-round pick on a RB isn’t the smartest thing in the world, but Dion Lewis was let go, Derrick Henry is on the tag and the Titans want to win this year. They need to supplement their backfield and this is a good spot for it, especially to create contract leverage.

Arizona State

Green Bay

PROSPECT RNK

POSITION RNK

The Packers have to get some supplemental help for Aaron Rodgers outside of Davante Adams.

Colorado

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 227 lbs

Injury risk at the end of the first round here, but the upside of Shenault is too much to pass up, especially with the fifth-year option available and some patience from San Francisco.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 195 lbs

Projected Team

Kansas City

PROSPECT RNK

30th

POSITION RNK

5th

The Chiefs are trying to keep building a roster that can help them in the title defense and they’re gonna need help on the back end to pull it off.
