Two-Round 2020 NFL Mock Draft: Raiders, Bears among five to add QBs while Ravens land two Round 2 playmakers


LSU

• Sr

• 6’4″

/ 221 lbs

Projected Team

Cincinnati

PROSPECT RNK

2nd

POSITION RNK

1st

This isn’t going to change. The biggest question now regarding the Bengals QB situation is where Andy Dalton will end up.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 264 lbs

Projected Team

Washington

PROSPECT RNK

1st

POSITION RNK

1st

Chase Young is the best player in this draft class and the Redskins have needs up and down the roster. Put another way: feel free to entertain draft offers but DO NOT DRAFT A QB HERE. NO MATTER WHAT, DON’T DO IT.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

4th

POSITION RNK

1st

The team traded Darius Slay and signed Desmond Trufant. Trading out of this pick would be ideal but it’ll be hard to pass on Okudah here if they stay put.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 238 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

3rd

POSITION RNK

1st

After what Simmons did at the combine — which only reconfirmed what we saw during the 2019 season — the Giants would be hard-pressed to let him go here. Yes, GM Dave Gettleman loves big bodies but Simmons would solve a lot of problems on this defense.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 217 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

5th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Here’s the deal: If QBs taken in Round 1 work out about 50 percent of the time, and Miami thinks Tua’s chance of success is even 33 percent, they should take him; they have three first-rounders and an obvious need under center.

Oregon

• Sr

• 6’6″

/ 236 lbs

The Chargers reportedly won’t look for a QB in free agency, which means Tyrod Taylor is the man … for now. But the team will have a decision to make at No. 6. Herbert had a solid 2019 season but improved his stock during the Senior Bowl and combine.

Auburn

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 326 lbs

Projected Team

Carolina

PROSPECT RNK

7th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Panthers’ defense was decimated by retirement and free-agent defections. Brown has the chance to be a foundational player in the middle of Carolina’s D.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 312 lbs

Projected Team

Arizona

PROSPECT RNK

8th

POSITION RNK

2nd

The Cardinals need to get better up front; the O-line ranked 21st in run blocking and 26th in pass blocking, according to Football Outsiders. Wills had a strong junior season for the Crimson Tide and was arguably one of the best players on the roster.

Iowa

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 320 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

7th

POSITION RNK

1st

The QB job is now Gardner Minshew’s. Knowing that — and with Cam Robinson entering the final year of his deal — the Jags are going to need to protect the second-year passer. Wirfs can play right or left tackle and is arguably the most athletic O-lineman in this class.

Louisville

• Jr

• 6’7″

/ 364 lbs

Projected Team

Cleveland

PROSPECT RNK

13th

POSITION RNK

4th

At 6-foot-7 and 360 pounds, Becton is a mountain of a man but he moves like someone who weighs more like 260, which pairs nicely with his footwork, balance and strength. The Browns have myriad problems and fixing the offensive line is as good a place as any to start. Ultimately, this team’s success comes down to Baker Mayfield, but protecting him might make being successful a lot easier.

Oklahoma

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 198 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

10th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Jets re-signed guard Alex Lewis and inked center Connor McGovern and tackle George Fant in free agency. That frees them up to get Sam Darnold some weapons and CeeDee Lamb is the best WR in this draft class.

Utah State

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 224 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

19th

POSITION RNK

4th

There have been rumblings of Las Vegas’ interest in Love, even after signing Marcus Mariota to a two-year deal. If Jon Gruden really does want the Utah State QB he may have to take him here instead of hoping he’s still on the board at No. 19.

Alabama

• Jr

• 5’11”

/ 188 lbs

The 49ers could choose to trade out of this pick but if they stay put they’ll almost certainly have their choice of Lamb, Jeudy or Ruggs. Ruggs’ 4.27 speed alongside Deebo Samuel makes San Francisco’s offense even more dangerous with Kyle Shanahan dialing up plays.

Georgia

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 315 lbs

Projected Team

Tampa Bay

PROSPECT RNK

11th

POSITION RNK

3rd

This is best-case for the Bucs, who need a right tackle because they signed some guy named Tom Brady. Thomas is a top-flight left tackle who began his college career on the right side.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 193 lbs

Projected Team

Denver

PROSPECT RNK

12th

POSITION RNK

2nd

The Broncos could choose to address the O-line here but why would they pass on Jerry Jeudy, the best route-runner in this class?

Florida

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 204 lbs

Projected Team

Atlanta

PROSPECT RNK

15th

POSITION RNK

2nd

GM Thomas Dimitroff has talked about needing to get better at cornerback and Henderson is our CB2. If you built a cornerback in the lab, he would look like Henderson.

LSU

• Soph

• 6’3″

/ 254 lbs

Projected Team

Dallas

PROSPECT RNK

14th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Chaisson is a raw, explosive pass rusher who is only going to get better the more he plays.

South Carolina

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 324 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

9th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Kinlaw is the best pass-rushing interior linemen in this draft and Miami has to improve their ability to get after the quarterback.

TCU

• Sr

• 5’10”

/ 191 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

26th

POSITION RNK

5th

Gladney is 5-foot-10 but he plays like he’s 6-foot-1. He’s fast, physical and routinely makes plays on the ball. Las Vegas’ defense will be much improved with him out there.

LSU

• Sr

• 6’0″

/ 197 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

22nd

POSITION RNK

3rd

Jacksonville’s defense regressed last year and improving the secondary is near the top of the to-do list. Fulton had an up-and-down 2019 but has the playmaking skills to be elite at the next level.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 202 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

24th

POSITION RNK

4th

The Eagles have obvious needs on defense but Jefferson punctuated a fantastic season with an impressive combine and firmly put himself in the first-round conversation with his 4.43 40 time in Indy. He’s a monster in the slot but can also play outside too.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 195 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

27th

POSITION RNK

6th

Minnesota parted ways with three cornerbacks who played a lot of snaps last season. The team has to restock the secondary and A.J. Terrell is the big, physical CB Mike Zimmer loves.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 201 lbs

Projected Team

New England

PROSPECT RNK

21st

POSITION RNK

1st

Yes, the team just re-upped Devin McCourty but Patrick Chung is 32 years old. McKinney is one of the most versatile defenders in this class and can line up in deep centerfield or closer to the line of scrimmage.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 229 lbs

Projected Team

New Orleans

PROSPECT RNK

28th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Yes, Demario Davis is coming off an insanely good 2019 campaign but Kiko Alonso is 30 years old and on a one-year deal and there’s not much depth behind him. Queen, who has sideline-to-sideline speed, is one of the best athlete’s in this draft class.

Penn State

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 266 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

20th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Restocking the defense continues for Minnesota, as they bolster the pass-rush position with their second first-round pick. Gross-Matos is a physical specimen who is just scratching the surface on his abilities.

Houston

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 319 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

17th

POSITION RNK

5th

Jones had an outstanding season for the Cougars and that carried over to the Senior Bowl too. He has the type of strength and athleticism that translates well to the NFL. In Miami, he’d be part of a rebuilding effort that would begin with protecting the new face of the franchise.

Wisconsin

• Sr

• 6’2″

/ 238 lbs

Projected Team

Seattle

PROSPECT RNK

34th

POSITION RNK

4th

Yes, the team brought back Bruce Irvin but Jadeveon Clowney is still on the open market and L.J. Collier has a long way to go to becoming a reliable pass rusher in Year 2.

Oklahoma

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 241 lbs

Projected Team

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

23rd

POSITION RNK

2nd

Josh Bynes played out of his mind last season but is now in Cincy. Murray is a middle-of-the-field playmaker who has the talent to be the next great inside linebacker in Baltimore.

Utah

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 193 lbs

Projected Team

Tennessee

PROSPECT RNK

47th

POSITION RNK

8th

Johnson balled out at Utah, and he’s a physical cover corner whose playmaking ability will be welcome in Tennessee.

Arizona State

• Sr

• 6’0″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Green Bay

PROSPECT RNK

35th

POSITION RNK

6th

Aiyuk is still raw but he’s a YAC monster who is also a dangerous return threat.

Alabama

• Sr

• 6’1″

/ 205 lbs

Stefon Diggs’ brother is a big cornerback with — not surprisingly — great ball skills. He’ll be insurance for Richard Sherman, who has one more year left on his deal.

Michigan

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 307 lbs

Projected Team

Kansas City

PROSPECT RNK

42nd

POSITION RNK

6th

The Chiefs don’t have many needs but Ruiz is the best center in the country and Austin Reiter is entering the final year of his deal in Kansas City.
