Next update: Occasionally. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

The order of this 2020 NFL Mock Draft is completely random, save for playoff seeding in the 21-32 range. First-round picks from the 2018 NFL Mock Draft and the 2019 NFL Mock Draft have been factored into the picks.

  1. Cleveland Browns: Tommy Kraemer, OT, Notre Dame
    2018 and 2019 NFL Mock Draft Picks (as of 1/21): Saquon Barkley, RB and Minkah Fitzpatrick, S; Greedy Williams, CB

    The Browns got a taste of what life would be like without Joe Thomas when he got hurt in 2017. Thomas will retire soon, so Cleveland will have to find a blind-side protector of the future.

    Tommy Kraemer's run blocking is ahead of his pass protection, so he needs to work on the latter. He's a mean, physical blocker who could be a first-round pick in the future.

  2. Los Angeles Rams: Tyler Biadasz, C, Wisconsin
    2018 and 2019 NFL Mock Draft Picks (as of 1/21): Sam Hubbard, DE; Ahmmon Richards, WR

    The Rams have a great offensive line right now, but center John Sullivan is nearing retirement, so he'll have to be replaced in the near future.

    Tyler Biadasz did a great job as Wisconsin's starting center as a mere freshman, making huge blocks all year.
  3. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin
    2018 and 2019 NFL Mock Draft Picks (as of 1/21): Lamar Jackson, QB; Josh Allen, LB

    The Steelers are having discipline issues with Le'Veon Bell. It's not inconceivable that he could be off the roster by the time the 2020 NFL Draft rolls around.

    Jonathan Taylor has to work on his receiving skills and ball security, but he's a tremendous runner who broke Adrian Peterson's record for rookie rushing.




  4. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jeffrey Simmons, DT, Mississippi State
    2018 and 2019 NFL Mock Draft Picks (as of 1/21): Orlando Brown, OT; Tyrie Cleveland, WR, Florida

    Calais Campbell has been tremendous for the Jaguars, but he won't be around very long because of his age. Here's a potential replacement.

    Jeffrey Simmons is an extremely disruptive interior force, but was found guilty of simple assault charges.
  5. Dallas Cowboys: Noah Fant, TE, Iowa
    2018 and 2019 NFL Mock Draft Picks (as of 1/21): Billy Price, G/C; Taylor Rapp, S

    I'm sure the Cowboys will give Rico Geathers a chance to supplant Jason Witten. If he disappoints, here's a possible replacement for the future Hall-of-Famer.

    Noah Fant had a nose for the end zone in his first year as a starter this past season, scoring 11 times. He's a talented tight end with great intangibles.


  6. Los Angeles Chargers: Darryl Williams, C/G, Mississippi State
    2018 and 2019 NFL Mock Draft Picks (as of 1/21): Da'Ron Payne, DT; Chauncey Gardner, S

    The Chargers need to find multiple upgrades to their offensive line, particularly at tackle and center.

    Darryl Williams was key to Mississippi State's offensive line's success in 2017. He can play both guard and center.
  7. Miami Dolphins: Nick Coe, DE, Auburn
    2018 and 2019 NFL Mock Draft Picks (as of 1/21): Denzel Ward, CB; Clayton Thorson, QB

    Cameron Wake certainly won't be with the Dolphins in the spring of 2020. A new edge rusher probably will be needed.

    At 6-5, 270, Nick Coe is an athletic freak. He had just two sacks as a freshman, but has major promise going forward.

  8. Philadelphia Eagles: Paddy Fisher, LB, Northwestern
    2018 and 2019 NFL Mock Draft Picks (as of 1/21): Kolton Miller, OT; Collin Johnson, WR

    All three of Philadelphia's starting linebackers will be free agents in each of the next three offseasons. It's unlikely that they'll be able to keep all three.

    Paddy Fisher was unbelievably productive for Northwestern despite being a freshman. He has a chance to be chosen in the top 20 if he improves.


  9. New York Giants: Henry Ruggs, WR, Alabama
    2018 and 2019 NFL Mock Draft Picks (as of 1/21): Josh Rosen, QB; Trey Adams, OT

    Brandon Marshall was a predictable disappointment. A third receiver could be obtained to go along with Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard.

    Henry Ruggs, who caught a touchdown in the national championship, is an extremely fast receiver who was highly recruited coming out of high school.
  10. Carolina Panthers: Jalen Thompson, S, Washington State
    2018 and 2019 NFL Mock Draft Picks (as of 1/21): Courtland Sutton, WR; Joe Jackson, DE

    The Panthers have a weak secondary overall, and their safeties have to be upgraded in the near future.

    Jalen Thompson is a very fast player who should be skilled in coverage in the pros.


  11. Baltimore Ravens: Tyler Vaughns, WR, USC
    2018 and 2019 NFL Mock Draft Picks (as of 1/21): Calvin Ridley, WR; Shea Patterson, QB

    I have the Ravens selecting Calvin Ridley in my 2018 NFL Mock Draft. They could go after another receiver, given their dire need at the position.

    Tyler Vaughns had a productive freshman year - 60-plus receiving yards in seven games - and his great route-running ability could push him into the first round.
  12. Tennessee Titans: Youhanna Ghaifan, DE/DT, Wyoming
    2018 and 2019 NFL Mock Draft Picks (as of 1/21): Justin Reid, S; Marlon Davidson, DE

    The Titans could stand to bolster their defensive line, as a five-technique could be added to go along with Jurrell Casey.

    Youhanna Ghaifan was a tremendous interior force as a sophomore, logging seven sacks. He can fit into both the 4-3 and 3-4.


  13. Cincinnati Bengals: T.J. McCoy, C, Florida
    2018 and 2019 NFL Mock Draft Picks (as of 1/21): Derwin James, S; Connor McGovern, G

    Here's another upgrade for Cincinnati's atrocious offensive line. Four improvements are needed here, with center being on the list.

    T.J. McCoy has been through a lot, watching his father battle cancer and then getting hit by a drunk driver in the spring of 2017. He's a solid player and could sneak into the first round.
  14. Chicago Bears: Nate Herbig, G, Stanford
    2018 and 2019 NFL Mock Draft Picks (as of 1/21): Joshua Jackson, CB; A.J. Brown, WR

    Josh Sitton will be a free agent next spring, and he'll turn 34 prior to the 2020 NFL Draft anyway. The Bears could use an early pick in the near future on a guard upgrade.

    Bryce Love got most of the credit for his amazing rushing season, but the massive Nate Herbig had a ton to do with Love's rushing success.
  15. Arizona Cardinals: Anfernee Jennings, LB, Alabama
    2018 and 2019 NFL Mock Draft Picks (as of 1/21): Josh Allen, QB; David Edwards, OT

    Deone Bucannon will be an impending free agent in the spring of 2019. With Haason Reddick also due for a big contract in the future, Bucannon may not stick around. Here's a potential replacement.

    Anfernee Jennings was a former four-star recruit, but he's had poor injury luck. Perhaps that'll change in the next two years.


  16. Kansas City Chiefs: Kenneth Murray, LB, Oklahoma
    2018 and 2019 NFL Mock Draft Picks (as of 1/21): Nick Bosa, DE

    The Chiefs won't have Derrick Johnson's services much longer. He'll need to be replaced once he announces his retirement.

    Kenneth Murray was co-Defensive Freshman of the Year in the Big XII, thriving in coverage for the Sooners.
