NFL Mock Draft 2020: Raiders make splash by adding another QB, Ravens trade up for LSU star


LSU

• Sr

• 6’4″

/ 221 lbs

Projected Team

Cincinnati

PROSPECT RNK

2nd

POSITION RNK

1st

Burrow is going to be a Bengal. Set it and forget it.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 264 lbs

Projected Team

Washington

PROSPECT RNK

1st

POSITION RNK

1st

Some have discussed putting Tua Tagovailoa here, but I think that’s just us going a bit stir-crazy in our houses. Washington does the smart move and takes the top player in the draft.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 217 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

5th

POSITION RNK

2nd

There’s been some recent talk that Miami may be souring on Tagovailoa, but I’m not buying it. To me, that’s simply a smokescreen. They’ll prove that by trading up to land their franchise signal caller. Detroit, meanwhile, only moves down a few spots and acquires some capital.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 312 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

8th

POSITION RNK

2nd

The Giants found their franchise QB last year in Daniel Jones and now they need to build up a line to protect him. Wills solidifies the right tackle spot instantly and should help in the running game.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

4th

POSITION RNK

1st

This is a win-win for Detroit. They trade down and still get the player they would have taken at No. 3. Okudah’s a top-flight corner and a strong replacement for Darius Slay.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 238 lbs

The Chargers could go quarterback here, but I believe Anthony Lynn is all-in on Tyrod Taylor. If that’s the case, adding a talent like Simmons could help them limit Patrick Mahomes in the AFC West.

Auburn

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 326 lbs

Projected Team

Carolina

PROSPECT RNK

6th

POSITION RNK

1st

Carolina would have loved to have seen Simmons fall to them here, but take the top defensive tackle in the draft instead.

Iowa

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 320 lbs

Projected Team

Arizona

PROSPECT RNK

7th

POSITION RNK

1st

Kyler Murray was sacked a league-high 48 times last season and Arizona now adds a top tackle to prevent it from happening again.

Oregon

• Sr

• 6’6″

/ 236 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

18th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Gardner Minshew was a fun story last season, but they can’t pass up on a talent like Herbert here.

Louisville

• Jr

• 6’7″

/ 364 lbs

Projected Team

Cleveland

PROSPECT RNK

13th

POSITION RNK

4th

Cleveland desperately needs help along the offensive line and can add a tackle in Becton, who has gigantic size.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 193 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

12th

POSITION RNK

2nd

It wouldn’t surprise me if Joe Douglas went offensive line here, but I can’t even list two Jets receivers right now. Sam Darnold needs pass catchers and gets an absolute star in Jeudy.

Utah State

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 224 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

19th

POSITION RNK

4th

The Raiders aren’t totally in love with Derek Carr as their starter, and I could see them bringing aboard a developmental quarterback to usher in their new era in Las Vegas. Love has tons of upside and it would be fascinating to see him work with Jon Gruden.

Oklahoma

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 198 lbs

After losing Emmanuel Sanders, San Francisco needs to add another elite pass catcher to pair with Deebo Samuel. They do just that with Lamb here.

Georgia

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 315 lbs

Projected Team

Tampa Bay

PROSPECT RNK

11th

POSITION RNK

3rd

The Buccaneers won the Tom Brady sweepstakes and already have plenty of weapons for him to utilize. At this spot, they look to protect their veteran quarterback.

Alabama

• Jr

• 5’11”

/ 188 lbs

Projected Team

Denver

PROSPECT RNK

16th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Denver could trade up to get the pass catcher they like the best or simply wait to see who falls to them. Here, they get an absolute burner in Ruggs. Pairing him with Courtland Sutton will do wonders for second-year QB Drew Lock.

Florida

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 204 lbs

Projected Team

Atlanta

PROSPECT RNK

15th

POSITION RNK

2nd

This is a easy call for Atlanta if Henderson falls to them at this spot. Adding the Florida corner should help a secondary that allowed 244.9 yards through the air per game last season.

Alabama

• Sr

• 6’1″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Dallas

PROSPECT RNK

25th

POSITION RNK

4th

Dallas needs a replacement for Byron Jones and can add Diggs, who is the younger brother of Bills receiver Stefon Diggs. The Alabama corner has all the makings of a No. 1 corner in the NFL.

Baylor

• Sr

• 6’3″

/ 207 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

39th

POSITION RNK

8th

There is a dropoff from the top three receivers that have already been taken off the board and Mims, but Miami, after dumping a ton of money on defense in free agency, gives Tagovailoa another weapon on offense.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 229 lbs

Projected Team

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

28th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Baltimore has an MVP QB already in-house, but need that next great linebacker to man the middle of their defense. They identify Queen as a player who fits that bill and get aggressive to move up and take him knowing they are entering their Super Bowl window.

South Carolina

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 324 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

9th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Kinlaw is arguably a top-10 talent in this draft and the Jags need plenty of help along the defensive line after losing Calais Campbell.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 202 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

24th

POSITION RNK

4th

It’s no secret that the Eagles need to add more top-tier pass-catching talent around Carson Wentz and they waste no time taking Jefferson once they are on the clock.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 201 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

21st

POSITION RNK

1st

Minnesota could look to draft a wide receiver here, but can always do that later on in the first round. Instead, they bring in one of the best safeties in this class.

LSU

• Soph

• 6’3″

/ 254 lbs

Projected Team

New England

PROSPECT RNK

14th

POSITION RNK

2nd

New England is pegged as a team that could look to add a QB, but I think they may roll with Jarrett Stidham in 2020. Rather than add competition at that spot, they address the front seven after losing a ton of edge guys and linebackers in free agency.

Oklahoma

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 241 lbs

Projected Team

New Orleans

PROSPECT RNK

25th

POSITION RNK

2nd

By drafting Murray, New Orleans adds a ton of speed on defense and get a guy that can line up off the edge and play in the middle of the defense.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 216 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

33rd

POSITION RNK

5th

Minnesota went defense with their first selection this round and now look for their Stefon Diggs replacement here with Higgins, who has a great frame and can be used all over the field.

Houston

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 319 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

17th

POSITION RNK

5th

Miami found their franchise quarterback, gave him another pass-catching option and now is using their final first round pick to help keep him upright by adding Jones here.

Iowa

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 275 lbs

Projected Team

Seattle

PROSPECT RNK

31st

POSITION RNK

4th

Epenesa didn’t have a great combine, but is talented enough to be worthy of a first-round selection. He can play all along the defensive line, which is a big need for Seattle.

LSU

• Sr

• 6’0″

/ 197 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

22nd

POSITION RNK

3rd

Vegas is able to trade down and still find a corner to help their secondary. Fulton can play on the outside and even move to the slot in a pinch.

TCU

• Sr

• 5’10”

/ 191 lbs

Projected Team

Tennessee

PROSPECT RNK

26th

POSITION RNK

5th

Tennessee is in need of a cornerback and Gladney brings speed and a physical playing style to the secondary. He is just 5-foot-10, but doesn’t play like it.

TCU

• Jr

• 5’11”

/ 206 lbs

Projected Team

Green Bay

PROSPECT RNK

43rd

POSITION RNK

9th

Green Bay could be a trade-up candidate for a more premium receiver prospect, but needs to add help for Davante Adams. Reagor can not only help the Packers in the passing game, but also in the return game.

Auburn

• Jr

• 5’10”

/ 198 lbs

Igbinoghene is an ascending prospect as the draft nears and the 49ers could look to add to the secondary with Richard Sherman entering next season as a 32-year-old.

Wisconsin

• Sr

• 6’2″

/ 238 lbs

Projected Team

Kansas City

PROSPECT RNK

34th

POSITION RNK

4th

K.C. would probably like to add to its secondary here, but does get a solid edge player in Baun that Steve Spagnuolo can use in multiple ways.
