  1. Cincinnati Bengals: Zack Baun, LB, Wisconsin
    The Bengals have the worst linebacking corps in the NFL, so they’ll need to make multiple upgrades to that area this offseason.

    Zack Baun has size limitations (6-3, 225), but he was very productive at Wisconsin.

    Pick change; previously Jacob Phillips, LB



  2. Washington Redskins: Terrell Lewis, DE/OLB, Alabama
    If the Redskins trade down from No. 2, perhaps they’ll find some edge-rushing depth during the second day of the draft. Terrell Lewis was once a staple of my 2019 NFL Mock Draft, but he returned to school after an injury-plagued 2018 campaign.



  3. Detroit Lions: Antoine Winfield Jr., S, Minnesota
    The Lions traded Quandre Diggs, which did not sit well in the locker room. Here’s a replacement for him.

    Antoine Winfield is a ball-hawking play-maker. This Web site is so old that we used to write about his dad!



  4. New York Jets: Lloyd Cushenberry, C, LSU
    The Jets were so desperate at center that they brought in Ryan Kalil prior to the season. Kalil ended up being terrible, so the Jets will need to find a new center.





  5. Carolina Panthers: Ashtyn Davis, S, California
    The Panthers improved their pass defense this season, but Tre Boston, one of the team’s starting safeties, will be entering free agency in March. Carolina will need a replacement for him if he departs.



  6. Detroit Lions: Troy Dye, LB, Oregon
    Matt Patricia needs a centerpiece for his defense, as the Lions have struggled to cover in space for quite a while.

    Troy Dye is a very athletic linebacker with great coverage skills.





  7. Los Angeles Chargers: Ben Bredeson, G, Michigan
    Philip Rivers struggled at times in 2019, but his horrible offensive line can be blamed for that.

    Ben Bredeson has great technique and decent quickness.



  8. Arizona Cardinals: A.J. Terrell, CB, Clemson
    The Cardinals had a terrible pass defense in 2019. They’ll need to bolster their linebacking corps and the secondary as much as possible.

    A.J. Terrell has good size (6-2, 190) and nice skill set.





  9. Jacksonville Jaguars: Khaleke Hudson, S, Michigan
    Jacksonville’s secondary took a massive hit when the team traded Jalen Ramsey, but it also had issues at safety beforehand, so that position needs to be addressed as well.



  10. Cleveland Browns: Logan Stenberg, G, Kentucky
    The Browns made a huge mistake by trading away Kevin Zeitler. Their offensive line really struggled as a consequence. They’ll need better guard play.

    Logan Stenberg looked good in the Senior Bowl to answer some questions about blocking speed rushers.





  11. Indianapolis Colts: Colby Parkinson, TE, Stanford
    The Colts need offensive weapons, and that would include a second tight end to replace Eric Ebron.

    Pick change; previously Thaddeus Moss, TE



  12. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Bryce Hall, CB, Virginia
    The Buccaneers have endured issues at cornerback for years. Perhaps they’ll finally fix those problems this offseason.

    Bryce Hall is a tall (6-1, 200) and fast cornerback, but struggled at times in 2019.








  13. Denver Broncos: Jordan Elliott, DE/DT, Missouri
    Derek Wolfe always seems to get hurt, so the Broncos could take a defensive tackle in Rounds 2-4 of the 2020 NFL Draft.



  14. Atlanta Falcons: Nick Coe, DE/DT, Auburn
    The Falcons missed Adrian Clayborn this past season. Vic Beasley, meanwhile, has regressed. I could see Atlanta doubling up on edge players in the first couple of rounds.





  15. New York Jets: Curtis Weaver, DE/OLB, Boise State
    The Jets don’t have much of an edge rush, so they’ll need to find someone who can help them get after the quarterback.

    Curtis Weaver had a ridiculous 11 sacks as a freshman. He’ll have to be an edge player in a 3-4 defense. He has skill-set limitations that will keep him limited to Day 2.



  16. Las Vegas Raiders: Levi Onwuzurike, DT, Washington
    The Raiders could use another presence on the defensive line to aid a weak pass rush.






  17. Las Vegas Raiders: Kristian Fulton, CB, LSU
    The Raiders traded away Gareon Conley, so they’ll be in search for more cornerback help to aid their poor secondary.



  18. Dallas Cowboys: Thaddeus Moss, TE, LSU
    The Cowboys signed Jason Witten this past offseason, so they’ll be looking for a long-term solution at tight end.



  19. Denver Broncos: Darnay Holmes, CB, UCLA
    The Broncos’ corners haven’t been the same since losing Aqib Talib. There’s even talk that Chris Harris Jr. could be traded. Two cornerbacks could be chosen in this draft.

    Darnay Holmes was a late addition to the Pro Bowl, and he made it count by performing very well in Mobile.



  20. Los Angeles Rams: Matt Peart, OT, Connecticut
    The Rams continue to bolster their offensive line, as they have the worst blocking unit in the NFL (excluding the Dolphins.)





  21. Philadelphia Eagles: Lynn Bowden, WR/KR, Kentucky
    Considering the durability issues of the Eagles’ top receivers, it shouldn’t surprise anyone if they use multiple selections on the position.

    Kentucky was such a mess this year that Lynn Bowden, a dynamic receiver, had to switch to quarterback this past season because of all the injuries at the position.



  22. Buffalo Bills: Eno Benjamin, RB, Arizona State
    Frank Gore won’t be around much longer, so the Bills will need a viable backup behind Devin Singletary.

    Eno Benjamin has shown better receiving ability, so he could be chosen in the second round.





  23. New England Patriots: Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR, Liberty
    The Patriots have an obvious lack of reliable talent at receiver, so they should add a wideout in the first half of the 2020 NFL Draft.

    Antonio Gandy-Golden has great size (6-4, 220) and hands. Level of competition and speed are question marks.



  24. New Orleans Saints: Lavert Hill, CB, Michigan
    Eli Apple has struggled mightily this past season. The Saints, at some point, have to give up on him and find a new No. 2 cornerback. We’ll see if Janoris Jenkins can be the solution.



  25. Minnesota Vikings: Jacob Phillips, LB, LSU
    The Vikings struggle to cover in space outside of Eric Kendricks, so I expect that issue to be prevalent this season. Perhaps they’ll finally upgrade their linebacking corps.

    Jacob Phillips has been an extremely productive linebacker for LSU. The physical defender was a five-star recruit.



  26. Las Vegas Raiders: Anfernee Jennings, LB, Alabama
    The Raiders could add a second player to help their putrid linebacking corps.



  27. Cleveland Browns: Robert Hunt, OT, Louisiana-Lafayette
    The Browns need to continue to bolster their pedestrian offensive line.



  28. Baltimore Ravens: K.J. Hill, WR, Ohio State
    The Ravens could stand to add more than one talented receiver in the draft.

    K.J. Hill runs good routes and has great run-after-catch skills.



  29. Tennessee Titans: Troy Pride, CB, Notre Dame
    The Titans may lose Logan Ryan next offseason when he hits free agency. Here’s a potential replacement.

    Troy Pride is expected to run 4.3 at the combine.



  30. Green Bay Packers: Jared Pinkney, TE, Vanderbilt
    The Packers didn’t select a receiver in the 2019 NFL Draft, and they’ve paid the price. They also failed to upgrade tight end. Both areas must be bolstered this upcoming offseason.





  31. Denver Broncos: Lucas Niang, OT, TCU
    The Broncos will have to consider finding some competition for the oft-penalized Garett Bolles.



  32. Kansas City Chiefs: Cam Akers, RB, Florida State
    Andy Reid keeps cycling through running backs because he has so many mediocre options at the position, though Damien Williams had a great playoff run. Here’s a potential upgrade.
