2020 NFL Mock Re-Draft: Round 2



Last update: Friday, April 24, 2020.
This is a 2020 NFL Mock Re-Draft of Rounds 2 and 3 for Friday evening's NFL Draft coverage. With all of the trades that will go down, I don't expect to get many of these right (I nailed eight in my Re-Draft Rounds 2-3 in 2018), but it's still fun to speculate where the top prospects will go on Day 2 of the 2020 NFL Draft.

  1. Cincinnati Bengals: Zack Baun, LB, Wisconsin
    The Bengals would have loved for someone unexpected to fall to them at No. 33. I don't know if Josh Jones or Ezra Cleveland qualify, so I'm still predicting Zack Baun to be the pick.

  2. Indianapolis Colts: Tee Higgins, WR, Clemson
    The Colts will need to add a receiver to go along with T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell. Brandon Aiyuk was the target here, so perhaps Indianapolis will go with another receiver.

    Tee Higgins is a matchup nightmare receiver with his incredible size (6-4, 200), but didn't run at the combine because he thought he would test poorly.



  3. Detroit Lions: Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin
    Kerryon Johnson hasn't been able to stay healthy, so I expect Detroit to target a running back in the opening half of the 2020 NFL Draft.

    Jonathan Taylor showed surprising athleticism at the combine, which helped mitigate some of the concerns teams have with the workload he handled at Wisconsin.



  4. New York Giants: Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama
    The Giants are sorely hurting for help in the secondary, as they need to replace Landon Collins. I wouldn't count out a receiver like Chase Claypool either.





  5. New England Patriots: Adam Trautman, TE, Dayton
    I wrote this in my first round:

    I would like to emphasize that I do not believe Adam Trautman will be the No. 23 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. In fact, I don't think he'll even be chosen in the first round. However, I'm attempting to match player to team, and I believe New England would like Trautman after trading down into the 35-50 range. The Patriots don't have a second-round pick, so they're eager to move down unless they can snatch a falling quarterback.

    Level of competition is a question mark, but Trautman has nice size (6-6, 251) and good hands. Some teams view him as the top tight end in this class.




  6. Carolina Panthers: Yetur Gross-Matos, DE, Penn State
    I'd be surprised if Yetur Gross-Matos lasted very long in Round 2. The Panthers need a replacement for Bruce Irvin, so Gross-Matos makes a ton of sense.





  7. Miami Dolphins: D'Andre Swift, RB, Georgia
    The Dolphins need to add tons of talent around their new quarterback to give him a fighting chance. They have so many holes on offense that almost every position makes sense.

    D'Andre Swift lives up to his name concerning that attribute, but vision is his best strength.



  8. Houston Texans: A.J. Epenesa, DE/OLB, Iowa
    The Texans need to improve their offensive line, but they also must upgrade their pass rush. They could do that with this pick unless Bill O'Brien trades it for Rex Burkhead.

    A.J. Epenesa could drop a bit because of his pedestrian combine performance, but this should still be considered a steal.





  9. Cleveland Browns: Grant Delpit, S, LSU
    The Browns could spend another second-round pick on an LSU defensive back, as they need to address their safety situation.

    Grant Delpit is an exceptional talent who was once considered a top-10 lock, but struggled in 2019.



  10. Jacksonville Jaguars: Ezra Cleveland, OT, Boise State
    The Jaguars need to protect Trevor Lawrence next year, and that would entail adding an offensive tackle at some point.





  11. Chicago Bears: Jeremy Chinn, S, Southern Illinois
    The Bears lost Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to free agency, so they'll need to obtain a new safety.

    Jeremy Chinn has generated some first-round buzz, as Charlie Campbell discussed.



  12. Indianapolis Colts: Jaylon Johnson, CB, Utah
    The Colts lost Pierre Desir this offseason, and yet they already needed cornerback help. They'll need to address this position in the second round.

    Jaylon Johnson has nice size (6-0, 190) and ball skills. He had a great 2018 campaign.






  13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Cam Akers, RB, Florida State
    Aside from right tackle, the primary weakness on Tampa Bay's offense is running back, so the team could use an early-round choice on the position.



  14. Denver Broncos: Kyle Dugger, S, Lenoir-Rhyne
    The Broncos don't really need a safety, but they'll be able to use Kyle Dugger all over the field, including at linebacker.





  15. Atlanta Falcons: Jordan Elliott, DE/DT, Missouri
    The Falcons missed out on the top two defensive tackles, so they'll need to settle for a new starter to play next to Grady Jarrett at this juncture.



  16. New York Jets: Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor
    The Jets haven't found any weapons for Sam Darnold yet, so they'll need to focus on doing so during the draft.








  17. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jalen Hurts, QB, Oklahoma
    Mason Rudolph was so bad that he was benched. The Steelers will be looking for a new successor for Ben Roethlisberger unless Duck Hodges continues to play well.

    Jalen Hurts has the obvious limitations, plus he's a one-read quarterback, which will result in plenty of sacks.



  18. Chicago Bears: Robert Hunt, OT/G, Louisiana-Lafayette
    The Bears' offensive line took a huge hit last year, which was the primary reason for their regression. They'll need to address their blocking.



  19. Dallas Cowboys: Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama
    The Cowboys could've select a cornerback as early as Round 1, given how big the need is.



    Trevon Diggs, younger brother of Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs, began as a receiver at Alabama, but was tremendous last season at cornerback before suffering a foot injury.



  20. Los Angeles Rams: Ross Blacklock, DT, TCU
    The Rams never replaced Ndamukong Suh after he departed following 2018, so here's their chance.

    Ross Blacklock has underrated athleticism at his listed size from college (6-3, 329).





  21. Philadelphia Eagles: Antoine Winfield Jr., S, Minnesota
    The Eagles suffered a big loss this offseason when Malcolm Jenkins departed for New Orleans. They need a new safety to prevent Will Parks from starting.



  22. Buffalo Bills: Lucas Niang, OT, TCU
    The Bills signed some offensive linemen last offseason, but some of them are just short-term solutions. Here's a right tackle for the long haul.





  23. Baltimore Ravens: J.K. Dobbins, RB, Ohio State
    With Mark Ingram entering his 30s, and Justice Hill disappointing, the Ravens will want to add another running back to handle a big chunk of carries.

    J.K. Dobbins entered 2017 as a backup, but overtook Mike Weber and had a terrific freshman campaign, showing off his great, explosive running ability.



  24. Miami Dolphins: Josh Jones, OT, Houston
    No one should be surprised if the Dolphins spend two early picks on offensive linemen. They have the worst blocking unit in the NFL, and they need upgrades at every position, including both tackle spots.

    Josh Jones needs to get stronger for the NFL, but his length and athleticism will interest some teams.



  25. Los Angeles Rams: Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame
    The Rams traded Brandin Cooks, so they'll need to add a receiver to their corps.



  26. Minnesota Vikings: Matt Hennessy, C/G, Temple
    The Vikings must upgrade their offensive line to give their overpaid quarterback a chance to win more than one playoff game.

    Matt Hennessy is not a name you see in most early portions of mock drafts, but he was ranked 34th on Gil Brandt's big board. Hennessy can play both guard and center, and he fits exactly what the Vikings want from a blocker. He would start at guard on Day 1.



  27. Seattle Seahawks: Josh Uche, DE/LB, Michigan
    The Seahawks tend to select players who thrive at the Senior Bowl. Uche was certainly one of the winners at Mobile, and he compares to Bruce Irvin, whom the Seahawks selected in the first round long ago.



  28. Baltimore Ravens: Michael Pittman Jr., WR, USC
    The Ravens hit a home run with Marquise Brown, but they need to add a second and a third receiver to play along with the former Sooner.



  29. Tennessee Titans: Justin Madubuike, DT, Texas A&M
    The Titans continue to bolster the trenches, as they need a replacement for Jurrell Casey.



  30. Green Bay Packers: K.J. Hamler, WR, Penn State
    The Packers need to give Jordan Love some help because he doesn't have anyone to throw to besides Davante Adams.

    K.J. Hamler is an absolutely electric play-maker who caught 41 passes for Penn State as a freshman. He can go the distance whenever he gets his hands on the ball.



  31. Kansas City Chiefs: Matt Peart, OT, Connecticut
    Andy Reid is always a fan of strengthening his offensive line. Eric Fisher was mauled in the Super Bowl, so here's a potential successor.



  32. Seattle Seahawks: DaVon Hamilton, DT, Ohio State
    The Seahawks lost Quinton Jefferson to the Bills in free agency, so they'll need to add some talent to their defensive interior.
