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. Dallas Cowboys: Khaleke Hudson, S, Michigan
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/3): None

    The Cowboys were talking to the Seahawks about trading for Earl Thomas. If they don't manage to sign Thomas in free agency, they'll be interested in someone like this.

    Khaleke Hudson is a tremendous blitzer who has the potential to be an elite coverage safety.

  2. Baltimore Ravens: Terrell Lewis, DE/OLB, Alabama
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/3): Trevon Diggs, CB

    The Ravens may want to add another talented linebacker to pair with C.J. Mosley, or an edge rusher to replace Terrell Suggs.

    Terrell Lewis was once a staple of my 2019 NFL Mock Draft, but after an injury-plagued 2018 campaign, he could go back to school.

  3. Los Angeles Rams: Curtis Weaver, DE/OLB, Boise State
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/3): Amani Oruwariye, CB

    I take my 2019 mock into account when making these picks. I had the Rams selecting an edge rusher in an earlier update of my 2019 NFL Mock Draft, yet I had them taking another one here, given their dire need for outside linebackers, even in the wake of the Dante Fowler trade.

    Curtis Weaver had a ridiculous 11 sacks as a freshman. He'll have to be an edge player in a 3-4 defense.



  4. Atlanta Falcons: C.J. Henderson, CB, Florida
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/3): Raekwon Davis, DT

    The Falcons must add to their secondary. Desmond Trufant is great, but Robert Alford was a massive disappointment across from him this year before being lost for the season.

    CJ Henderson has good height (6-1), but needs to bulk up. He had four interceptions as a freshman. He has some great potential as a former four-star recruit.

  5. New York Giants: Youhanna Ghaifan, DE/DT, Wyoming
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/3): Justin Herbert, QB

    The Giants are getting pushed around too much on their defensive line, and they need personnel for their new scheme.

    Youhanna Ghaifan was a tremendous interior force as a sophomore, logging seven sacks in 2017. He can fit into both the 4-3 and 3-4.



  6. Los Angeles Chargers: Jacob Eason, QB, Washington
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/3): Dre'Mont Jones, DT

    This seems like a great place to take Philip Rivers' successor, as Rivers turns 38 prior to the 2020 NFL Draft.

    Jacob Eason exploded on the scene for Georgia, throwing 16 touchdowns compared to eight interceptions as a freshman in the SEC. Eason still needs to work on his accuracy, but he's young enough to make vast improvements in the near future. Eason has since transferred to Washington, where he'll have a chance to emerge as a top-five pick for the 2020 NFL Draft if he has a big 2019 campaign.

  7. Cleveland Browns: Paddy Fisher, LB, Northwestern
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/3): Ed Oliver, DT

    The Browns need to get better against the run, and that would involve upgrading the linebacking corps, which lost Mychal Kendricks to insider trading.

    Paddy Fisher was unbelievably productive for Northwestern despite being a freshman. He's become one of the top linebackers in the Big Ten.





  8. New Orleans Saints: Tyler Biadasz, C, Wisconsin
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/3): None

    Max Unger will be a 34-year-old free agent during the 2020 NFL offseason. The Saints will want a new center for Drew Brees or Teddy Bridgewater.

    Tyler Biadasz did a great job as Wisconsin's starting center as a mere freshman, making huge blocks all year. He's continued to play well as a sophomore.

  9. Philadelphia Eagles: D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/3): Christian Wilkins, DT

    The Eagles need another talented receiver to go along with Alshon Jeffery, as the other options have disappointed this year.

    D.K. Metcalf is an athletic freak. A 6-4, 220-pound receiver, Metcalf has accomplished an 11-1 broad jump and a 37.5-inch vertical. He's had some great performances this season and could declare for the 2019 NFL Draft. However, Metcalf suffered an injury and may not be able to participate at the combine, so he may opt to return to school.



  10. Oakland Raiders: Kendrick Rogers, WR, Texas A&M
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/3): Quinnen Williams, DT; Josh Allen, LB; Montez Sweat, DE

    The Raiders traded Amari Cooper, so they can use Chicago's pick on a talented receiver to replace him.

    Kendrick Rogers has flashed some major upside, but he'll need to show improved durability to be chosen in the first round.

  11. Pittsburgh Steelers: Marquez Callaway, WR, Tennessee
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/3): Mack Wilson, LB

    Given the problems Antonio Brown has caused, I'm wondering if the Steelers will end up trading him at some point within the next two years. Brown is such a prolific talent, but he'll turn 31 this offseason, so he'll be headed for a decline soon. Pittsburgh may want to get something for him while it can.

    Marquez Callaway, at 6-2, 200 pounds, hasn't been overly productive, but he has plenty of potential.



  12. Cincinnati Bengals: Tommy Kraemer, G, Notre Dame
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/3): Albert Okwuegbunan, TE

    The Bengals have improved their offensive line this season, but they still need to make a couple more upgrades.

    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.

  13. Arizona Cardinals: Cam Akers, RB, Florida State
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/3): Derrick Brown, DT

    There's been talk of the Cardinals trading David Johnson. That may not happen, but if it does, Arizona will obviously need a new lead back.

    Cam Akers has a good, all-around skill set, and he could sneak into the first round when he declares.

  14. Tennessee Titans: Henry Ruggs, WR, Alabama
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/3): DeAndre Baker, CB

    Corey Davis still has plenty of time and potential, but he has yet to live up to his top-five billing. The Titans may use this pick on a receiver if Davis continues to underwhelm.

    Henry Ruggs, who caught a touchdown in the national championship, is an extremely fast receiver who was highly recruited coming out of high school.

  15. Carolina Panthers: Jalen Thompson, S, Washington State
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/3): Amani Orunwaryie, CB

    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.



  16. Kansas City Chiefs: Jamel Dean, CB, Auburn
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/3): Trayvon Mullen, CB

    I have the Chiefs selecting a cornerback in my 2019 NFL Mock Draft, but they're hurting so much at the position that they could double up on corners.

    Jamel Dean has great size (6-2, 208) and tremendous potential.
