The regular 2019 NFL season is coming to an end and there is only one game left in college football season.
With the NFL 2020 draft set and cup games in full swing, it is becoming easier to see which teams are positioned to get the best prospects on the board before we dive into the four-month evaluation process before the first round on April 23. There were many showcase games for the top talent available, highlighted by the semifinals of the Academy football match.
Including astronauts homeless from LSU, Oklahoma, Clemson and Ohio State, here is our most recent draft for 2020, the last before the new year.
NFL ODDS Draft:
Enter the Bengals at No. 1 a lock?
2020 NFL Mock Draft
1. Cincinnati Bengals (1-14)
Offensive coach Jacques Taylor needs franchise passes with Andy Dalton fading and Ryan Finley not showing much. Burrow enjoys a meteoric rise as the Heisman Trophy winner and the top prospect of the QB in the classroom. At 6-3, 215kg, he combines his mental and physical strength in the pocket with a powerful hand and accurate delivery. His leadership and sports skills have also flourished in the Baton Rouge, with his ridiculous appearances in the Alabama game and the CFP semifinal against Oklahoma, which is great flesh. Consider him a better version of Jared Goff.
2. Washington Redskins (3-12)
- Chase Young, EDGE, State of Ohio
The youngster has been the better prospect than the recent State Boss. Whoever the new Washington coach is, regardless of new plans and whatever other needs, assuming the Redskins do not trade back, they should jump at the chance to acquire this cornerstone talent for the team’s defensive recovery. Young (6-5, 265 lbs) is a change-up player who had 16.5 sacks in just 12 games as a junior. It’s the obvious choice for a team that doesn’t need a QB.
3. Detroit Lions (3-11-1)
- Derik Brown, DT, Aurn
The Lions have to go for the best defensive player available and the inside line is a top priority for Matt Patricia and Bob Quinn. With Young on the board, they should love Brown’s ability to tackle their running problems. At 6-5, 318 lbs, he is a fast burglar who makes many plays in the backfield.
4. New York Giants (4-11)
- Jeffrey Okudah, CB, Ohio
Okudah, an elite ball with 6-1, 200kg ball, is manufactured to handle receivers of all sizes. It is fluid and fast enough with great recovery skills in the cover to evolve into a type of finish, with its ability to appear in the press. The Giants don’t have much in the cornerback, thanks to DeAndre Baker’s first-round games and the release of Janoris Jenkins. Okudah may be the next Marshon Lattimore from Columbus.
Your Tagovailoahttps: //images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/1c/62/tua-tagovailoa-110719-getty-ftr.jpg_13hbd1dmz4dzp1dfg6yw7fxqxc.jpg? T = 1194375326 & w = 500 & quality = 80
5. Miami Dolphins (4-11)
- Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
Now that we know that Tagovailoa (6-1, 218 pounds) has to make a complete recovery from the scary hip injury, it should be the choice for the dolphins. Miami can hold Ryan Fitzpatrick to serve as the QB bridge will Tagovailoa need extra time to reach full power. When healthy, Tagovailoa is an accurate, portable, deep ball that throws a QB with Russell Wilson’s breath, throwing it only with his left hand.
6. Jacksonville Jaguars (5-10)
Yannick Ngaukoe is a pending free agent and Calais Campbell (6-8, 300 pounds) enters his time. Epenesa (6-6, 280kg) is a strong, explosive, big player. It can push blockers off the road to reach the quarterback and also stand up strong against running. He confirmed the top-10 ranking with 2.5 bags and a forced punt against USC in the Holiday Bowl.
7. Los Angeles Chargers (5-10)
- Isaiah Simmons, OLB / S, Clemson
The Chargers already have a versatile back-seven backer in Derwin James. They could be absolutely dominant if they planted Simmons on the second level. Simmons appears to be on the field all the time for the Tigers at high speed and can range from 6-4, 230kg, and can also reach the quarterback. He has 97 tackles, 6 sacks, 14.5 tackles for loss and 3 interceptions in 14 appearances this season.
8. Carolina Panthers (5-10)
- Jester Herbert, QB, Oregon
Herbert is the perfect size (6-6, 237 pounds) for a team that might want to start from QB with a new coach. It comes with a few concerns about resilience and while it is effective and mentally tough overall, there are times when it can go down with decision-making, forcing it to shy away from overconfidence. With good NFL training, however, he can live until he is an original superstar.
Justin Herberthttps: //images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/d1/23/justin-herbert-083119-getty-ftrjpg_po34ydy8gaqe1ivhdmeivkr9m.jpg? T = -370115756 & w = 500 & quality = 80
9. Arizona Cardinals (5-9-1)
- CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma
Re-joining Kyler Murray with the college student will allow Christian Kirk to be a more dangerous addition player. Lamb, a DeAndre Hopkins clone, can be that explosive stretcher-field and stable type of possession out there. At 6-2, 199 pounds, Lamb needed only 62 receptions to put up 1,327 yards and 14 TDs in 13 games in his final season.
10. New York Planes (6-9)
- Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia
The Jets would be ready to take on either Jeudy or Lamb if they were set to do so, but they could also use a rock for their offensive line in front of Sam Darnold. Thomas fits the big size (6-5, 320 pounds) with good hands and footwork. Gase will also love what Thomas can open for the current game.
11. Denver Broncos (6-9)
The Broncos are quietly one piece away from one of the league’s strongest bodies with Courtland Sutton, Noah Fant and DaeSean Hamilton already working well in the mix. Jeudy fits the profile as the No. 1 receiver, a classic mid-to-deep and drive-finisher at 6-1, 198 kg.
12. Cleveland Browns (6-9)
The Browns have an amazing set of skills around Baker Mayfield, but their protection was the reason they slowly exploded in early 2019. Jackson (6-6, 310kg) entered the first round as a beast rallying beast more attention to his Trojan cartridge, assuming it enters the design as expected.
13. Atlanta Falcons (6-9)
- Yetur Gross-Matos, EDGE, Penn State
The Canyons seem to be looking for more turbulence to help the secondary (also a primary need), as some options have not worked as expected. Gross-Matos (6-5, 242 pounds) is a well-built, explosive and versatile defender who can thrive in Dan Quinn’s 4-3 draft.
Tee Higginshttps: //images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/5d/27/tee-higgins-081818-getty-ftrjpg_1efy204c37njt1173m1yrc86ip.jpg? T = 1126840671 & w = 500 & quality = 80
14. Las Vegas Raiders (7-8)
After Antonio Brown’s disappointment, the Raiders can go for their true long-term receiver no. 1 to pair with former Clemson Receiver Slot Machine Hunter Renfrow. Higgins is a dangerous player who can be a real force in the red zone. At 6-4, 215 pounds, Higgins has posted 56 receptions for 1,115 yards and 13 TDs in 14 games this season.
15. Dallas Cowboys (7-8)
The Cowboys need to upgrade to more free pop-up safely and get much better coverage on the back and tight ends. Delpit flies around the court, stopping to run like an extra linebacker and making big plays on the ball to cover the field. He plays like the Chargers’ Derwin James, with a huge hybrid size (6-3, 203 lbs) for the post.
16. Indianapolis Colts (7-8)
- Jonathan Taylor, PB, Wisconsin
The Colts like Marlon Mack, but it has issues of durability. They will benefit from a full back package, a power runner with an explosive spread and recovery. Taylor (5-11, 219 lbs) has high vision and breaks out as a runner. He also doesn’t have enough credit for what he can do as a receiver, which has been more prominent during his college season. In three years for the Badgers, he has posted 7,025 hits and 55 TDs in total.
17. Bunch of Cod (7-8)
- Javon Kinlaw, DT, South Carolina
The Buccaneers have had a defensive rebirth ahead of Todd Bowles, but Ndamukong Suh and Beau Allen are outstanding free agents. For the boost, they can see the defense of Will Muschamp, where the 6-6, 310-pound Kinlaw put 6 sacks in 12 games for the Gamecocks. Offensive tackle and cornerback will also be considered with this option.
Christian Fultonhttps: //images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/2a/ed/kristian-fulton-110719-getty-ftrjpg_1uqchcu99uunb1nnquyyqwovf9.jpg? T = 1194449518 & w = 500 & quality = 80
18. Las Vegas Raiders (from 7-8 bears)
The Raiders need some help at the back after being constantly burned this season, despite some hasty improvements. Fulton (6-1, 192 lbs) has the capabilities of size, speed, intelligence and sound coverage for a long, prosperous career.
19. Miami Dolphins (from 8-7 Steelers)
Dolphins need to land a strong protector after his exchange with Laremy Tunsil. Wirfs has the sport at 6-5, 322 lbs to hold the left side for a long time. He combines his skills with power and physicality in the current game.
20. Jacksonville Jaguars (from 8-7 Rams)
- Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama
The Jaguars can replace Jalen Ramsey with the choice they made for him with Diggs, who can pair well with A.J. Bouye because of its size (6-2, 207 lbs), power and downfield speed. Diggs quickly ascended to the board with his old age (3 interceptions in 12 games).
21. Tennessee Titans (8-7)
- Curtis Weaver, EDGE, Boise State
The Titans can continue to bolster their own course against Harold Landry with this option and replace 37-year-old Cameron Wake. Weaver (6-3, 265 pounds) was an absolute beast on the blue lawn with 13.5 sacks in 14 games in his final college season.
22. Minnesota Vikings (10-5)
- Paulson Adebo, CB, Stanford
Xavier Rhodes has quickly faded as a great cover man and Trae Waynes is a pending free agent. At 6-1, 184 pounds, Adebo offers exceptional skills and instincts to become a finisher. He has 8 interceptions in just 22 college games.
23. Buffalo Bills (10-5)
- K’Lavon Chaisson, EDGE / OLB, LSU
Chaisson (6-4, 250 pounds) has a big name for an elite, active defensive tackle behind quarterbacks and running backs himself. He has 6.5 sacks during LSU’s run at the CFP National Championship, and like many of his teammates, his stock has plunged throughout the season. It’s a piece of a hybrid player that can work well at 4-3 to replace Lorenzo Alexander, 37, and a weak free agent on the weak side.
24. Seattle Seahawks (11-4)
- Tyler Biadasz, G, Wisconsin
Biadasz (6-3, 321 lbs) is the next in line for the Badgers’ inside linebackers (see Cowboys’ Travis Frederick and Giants’ Kevin Zeitler). The offensive foundation of the Seahawks is the power-play, aging and confined inside game with Mike Iupati as a pending free agent. They can also look here.
25. Philadelphia Eagles (8-7)
- Henry Ruggs III, WR, Alabama
The Eagles are in desperate need of a great long-range threat on the bodies of Carson Wentz, with the age of DeSean Jackson and the destruction of Alshon Jeffery. Ruggs (6-0, 190kg) fits the bill as a stretcher who can also use his track skills to win shorter runs.
26. Miami Dolphins (from 10-5 Texans)
- Justin Jefferson, WR, LSU
The Dolphins know that DeVante Parker will be around for a while. Now they can find someone to complement him as a big game threat outside. Jefferson (6-2, 185 lbs) appeared in the passing game of LSU as a fast, efficient runner with good hands, who also has somehow still undervalued speed. He has recorded 102 catches for 1,434 yards and 18 TDs in 14 games with one more left to play.
Travis Etiennehttps: //images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/cd/5d/travis-etienne-052119-getty-ftr_c534hmjokv2f1lkxekayiylga.jpg? T = -597820790 & w = 500 & quality = 80
27. Kansas City Chiefs (11-4)
- Travis Etienne, PB, Clemson
The Chiefs should consider defending, with the guidance of the linebacker, but they may find some good value in that position later in this draft. Instead, we give them the wild card, which is another explosive weapon for Patrick Mahomes, especially with LeSean McCoy aging as a free agent and Damien Williams not being in a big role. Etienne (5-10, 210kg) is an open field player and has a high upward trend due to his ability as a receiver. It might be Alvin Kamara’s version of the video game that Andy Reid loves.
28. New Orleans Saints (12-3)
- Laviska Shenault Jr., WR, Colorado
The Saints need to get Michael Thomas some solid help on the other side of the race and give Drew Brees a solid No. 2. Shenault (6-2, 220 pounds) is a sure fielder that has some great big-play fantasy after fishing. He recorded 56 catches for 764 yards and 4 TDs for the Buffaloes, singling out a team.
29. Green Bay Packers (12-3)
- Kenneth Murray, ILB, Oklahoma
Packers must continue to work on their defense and inside coverage, and Blake Martinez is a pending free agent. Murray (6-2, 243 pounds) is an active player who can be as effective as going down against running or inflammation.
30. New England Patriots (12-3)
- Dylan Moses, ILB, Alabama
The Patriots have many worries about free agency with Kyle Van Noy, Elandon Roberts and Jamie Collins not signed for 2020. Moses (6-3, 259 pounds) lost the Crimson Tide season with a torn ACL in August, but they must be fully healed to contribute as a rookie who can sew on tackles and also do great work on coverage.
D’Andre Swifthttps: //images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/c5/f6/dandre-swift-081818-getty-ftrjpg_a5fp4bjn9qck1igh1izxs4ukp.jpg? T = 1314912620 & w = 500 & quality = 80
31. San Francisco 49ers (12-3)
- D’Andre Swift, RB, Georgia
The 49ers are positioned to go after the best player available. They’ve invested a lot in the operation and have an effective commission, but they could use a real axis of work for the Kyle Shanahan zone exclusion system. Swift (5-9, 229 lbs) is both capable of taking hard yards inside and breaking free for big games in the open field.
32. Baltimore Ravens (13-2)
- C. J. Henderson, CB, Florida
Marcus Peters and Jimmy Smith are pending free agents. The Ravens need to move in a defensive direction early on. Henderson (6-1, 202 pounds) plays bigger than his size with great sportsmanship and technique. It just needs to get a little more natural to trust receivers based on body positioning to open.
