Two-Round 2020 NFL Mock Draft: Chargers bypass a quarterback, Eagles trade up for a top wide receiver


LSU

• Sr

• 6’4″

/ 221 lbs

Projected Team

Cincinnati

PROSPECT RNK

2nd

POSITION RNK

1st

The Bengals do not bungle. They ignore a tantalizing offer from Miami and select Burrow, who is not going to shy away from a challenge. If he truly wants to help southeast Ohio, then he is within striking range and making a direct impact.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 264 lbs

Projected Team

Washington

PROSPECT RNK

1st

POSITION RNK

1st

Washington decides that the trade offers are not enough to justify passing on a talent like Young. Their defensive line is loaded with former first-round picks.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

4th

POSITION RNK

1st

Detroit replaces Darius Slay with a younger, cheaper player. It may not better them immediately but it gives them more flexibility in the long run.

Iowa

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 320 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

7th

POSITION RNK

1st

New York adds a mobile big man that can slide into the right tackle role seamlessly with the capability of playing left tackle in the future.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 217 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

5th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Miami’s smokescreens work as Tagovailoa falls to them at No. 5 overall. They can use their remaining 13 picks to move around and add some quality players to the roster.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 238 lbs

The Chargers wanted Tua Tagovailoa but were not willing to move up for him. They are not sold on Justin Herbert so they address the defense with the selection of Isaiah Simmons. Their defense becomes the most versatile in the country with Desmond King, Derwin James and Simmons.

Auburn

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 326 lbs

Projected Team

Carolina

PROSPECT RNK

6th

POSITION RNK

1st

Carolina adds a stout body to their interior defensive line. Brown can disrupt action at the point of attack.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 312 lbs

Projected Team

Arizona

PROSPECT RNK

8th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Arizona needs a right tackle and Wills has played on that side dating back to high school in Lexington, Kentucky. He is a foundational piece to that Cardinals roster.

Oregon

• Sr

• 6’6″

/ 236 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

18th

POSITION RNK

3rd

I’m not convinced that Jacksonville trusts Gardner Minshew as their starter. If the coaching staff and front office are comfortable in their roles, then they would be fools to pass up this opportunity.

Georgia

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 315 lbs

Projected Team

Cleveland

PROSPECT RNK

11th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Murmurs are growing that Thomas may not be available for the Browns to select here. There are also murmurs that Cleveland could trade down if that were to happen. Figure that out yourselves because he is on the board here and I’m taking him.

Louisville

• Jr

• 6’7″

/ 364 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

13th

POSITION RNK

4th

I remain convinced that New York will address their offensive line before they swing back around to add some playmakers at wide receiver. Becton is the best option on the board.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 193 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

12th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Mike Mayock loves players from championship-caliber programs. He can trust Jeudy. I am beating a dead horse at this point but it just adds up.

Alabama

• Jr

• 5’11”

/ 188 lbs

San Francisco watched as speed beat them in the Super Bowl so they add a speedster of their own in the form of Ruggs.

South Carolina

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 324 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

9th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Jacksonville watched as Justin Herbert fell into their laps at No. 8 overall. With their second pick, they get aggressive and move up to secure another need on their roster. The Buccaneers add No. 73 overall to move down.

Florida

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 204 lbs

Projected Team

Denver

PROSPECT RNK

15th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Denver recognizes the value of Henderson midway through the first round and nabs him before Dallas. John Elway adds another brick to that defensive foundation.

Oklahoma

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 198 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

10th

POSITION RNK

1st

Reasonably speaking, one of those top three wide receivers could fall a little bit and it is clear that the Eagles need another dynamic pass catcher. The Falcons add No. 103 overall and a future fourth-round pick.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 201 lbs

Projected Team

Dallas

PROSPECT RNK

21st

POSITION RNK

1st

Dallas lands a valuable player in their secondary. McKinney brings versatility and a long-term plan at the position.

Oklahoma

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 241 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

23rd

POSITION RNK

2nd

Murray is going to be an A+ member of any team’s locker room and his activity level will elevate everyone around him.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 195 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

27th

POSITION RNK

6th

Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock are able to take one Clemson cornerback and slide them in next to another Clemson cornerback that they drafted last year.

Houston

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 319 lbs

Projected Team

Tampa Bay

PROSPECT RNK

17th

POSITION RNK

5th

Tampa Bay misses out on the top four offensive tackle targets so they slide back a bit to nab the fifth best.

LSU

• Soph

• 6’3″

/ 254 lbs

Projected Team

Atlanta

PROSPECT RNK

14th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Atlanta may have their eyes on a cornerback but, in this scenario, they were able to move back and pick up some additional draft capital while still getting another pass rusher.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 202 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

24th

POSITION RNK

4th

Minnesota is able to replace Stefon Diggs with the fourth-best wide receiver in this draft class. Jefferson carries a first-round grade and would be an immediate impact player for the Minnesota offense.

Iowa

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 275 lbs

Projected Team

New England

PROSPECT RNK

31st

POSITION RNK

4th

Epenesa is a great value for the Patriots at this stage of the first round. He is being undervalued recently but New England will not overlook what he has been able to produce.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 229 lbs

Projected Team

New Orleans

PROSPECT RNK

28th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Queen to New Orleans should be a popular pick. It is a need for the team and it happens to coincide with the value of the player.

Oklahoma

• Sr

• 6’2″

/ 304 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

37th

POSITION RNK

4th

It may come as a surprise to see Minnesota not take a cornerback but Gallimore is a better player than the remaining options at cornerback. He can bring a spark to that Vikings defense.

Boise State

• Jr

• 6’6″

/ 311 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

50th

POSITION RNK

9th

Miami lands a big addition to their offensive line. They have pieced out the unit over the past few years so Cleveland will step in and learn as a starter Day 1. Operation keep Tua upright is underway.

Penn State

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 266 lbs

Projected Team

Seattle

PROSPECT RNK

20th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Seattle accounts for the potential loss of Jadeveon Clowney by drafting his replacement. Gross-Matos is a strong player with quick hands. He needs to refine his trade a bit though.

Arizona State

• Sr

• 6’0″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

35th

POSITION RNK

6th

Aiyuk is another explosive option for Lamar Jackson in the passing game. The thought is that Baltimore would target a bigger wide receiver because they already have Marquise Brown but I am not sure that is actually true.


Jeremy Chinn


S

Southern Illinois

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 221 lbs

Projected Team

Tennessee

PROSPECT RNK

65th

POSITION RNK

5th

Chinn has a chance to land in Round 1. Tennessee would be a good option considering Mike Vrabel’s control of the defense and his understanding of how to use Chinn effectively.

TCU

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 290 lbs

Projected Team

Green Bay

PROSPECT RNK

30th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Green Bay is starting to build up their interior defensive line with the addition of Blacklock, who is a sound, consistent producer.

Utah State

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 224 lbs

Projected Team

Indianapolis

PROSPECT RNK

19th

POSITION RNK

4th

San Francisco and Indianapolis facilitate another deal this offseason as this one brings a first-round pick back to the Colts. They get a long-term replacement for Philip Rivers. Chris Ballard’s job is not in jeopardy so he can afford to make a move with the future in mind. The 49ers receive No. 122 and No. 34.

TCU

• Sr

• 5’10”

/ 191 lbs

Projected Team

Kansas City

PROSPECT RNK

26th

POSITION RNK

5th

Adding a cornerback here would surprise no one. It is a big need for Kansas City. Offensive line would be a possibility here as well.
