Welcome Welcome Welcome
This is the first of hopefully many 2020 NFL Mock Drafts that I will be posting. There are a few surprises that I have and will elaborate on those ones for now.
Since this is version 1.0, there will be no mock trades involved. Enjoy and hit up the comments section to let me know what you think!
1). Cincinnati Bengals – Joe Burrow (QB – LSU)
2). Washington *censored*– Chase Young (EDGE – Ohio St)
3). Detroit Lions – Isaiah Simmons (LB – Clemson)
Well hello there. Yes, I have Isaiah Simmons, a player that scouts cannot agree on whether he’ll be a Safety or a LB at the NFL level going all the way to #3 in Detroit. The reason is pretty simple. Matt Patricia. He thinks he’s a defensive genius. He will look at Simmons’ tape and measurables and say to himself, “This is the x-factor I need for my defense to not be awful.” I love Simmons as a prospect and his tape against Ohio State and LSU is going to wow a lot of people. He’s a slimmer version of Tremaine Edmunds that has better speed but the same freakish length.
#TankForTua is fulfilled. Tua will get significant time to rest and heal while Ryan Fitzpatrick mans the controls until Tua is ready.
Finally. Finally the Chargers make a move towards the future by bringing in Herbert. Is there a bigger contrast in QB style/arm strength than Rivers vs Herbert?
8). Carolina Panthers – Jeffrey Okudah (CB – Ohio St)
9). Arizona Cardinals – CeeDee Lamb (WR – Oklahoma)
10). New York Jets – Tristan Wirfs (OL – Iowa)
11). Denver Broncos – Javon Kinlaw (DT – South Carolina)
12). Cleveland Browns – Austin Jackson (OT – USC)
13). Atlanta Falcons – Derrick Brown (DT – Auburn)
14). Las Vegas Raiders – A.J. Epenesa (EDGE – Iowa)
15). Dallas Cowboys – Grant Delpit (S – LSU)
16), Indianapolis Colts – Jordan Love (QB – Utah St)
There have been multiple reports of the connection between Jordan Love and the Colts. He’s going to wow people at the Scouting Combine and I trust Frank Reich to get the most out of Love at the NFL level.
17). Tampa Bay Buccaneers – A.J. Terrell (CB – Clemson)
18). Las Vegas Raiders (From Chicago) – Henry Ruggs III (WR – Alabama)
19). Miami Dolphins (From Pitt) – Mekhi Becton (OT – Louisville)
20). Jacksonville Jaguars (From LA Rams) – Curtis Weaver (DE – Boise St)
21). Philadelphia Eagles – Kristian Fulton (CB – LSU)
22). Tennessee Titans – Bryce Hall (CB – Virginia)
23). Buffalo Bills – Laviska Shenault Jr (WR – Colorado)
24). Minnesota Vikings – K’Lavon Chaisson (EDGE – LSU)
25). Miami Dolphins (From Houston) – Kenneth Murray (LB – Oklahoma)
26). Kansas City Chiefs – Jedrick Wills (OT – Alabama)
27). Seattle Seahawks – Raekwon Davis (DT – Alabama)
28). Green Bay Packers – Devonta Smith (WR – Alabama)
29). New England Patriots – Alex Leatherwood (OT – Alabama)
30). New Orleans Saints – Jacob Eason (QB – Washington)
We have reached the tipping point. Drew Brees is going to ride off into retirement after this year. Teddy Bridgewater will move somewhere else (Hello Las Vegas). Eason has all of the tools to be a franchise QB at the next level. It doesn’t hurt to have Alvin Kamara, Michael Thomas, and Sean Payton to help you out either.
