2020 NFL Draft Stock Up

A.J. Terrell, CB, Clemson
The top two cornerbacks for the 2020 NFL Draft are clearly known in Ohio State’s Jeff Okudah and Florida’s C.J. Henderson, but after those two are off the board, there are a number of candidates to be the third cornerback selected. One player who is rising in contention for that is Terrell. While teams see some developmental issues that Terrell needs work on, he is a good athlete with size and speed. Terrell could end up being some teams third-rated cornerback.

Jordyn Brooks, LB, Texas Tech
The 2020 NFL Draft does not have a strong class of inside linebacker talent, and that could help Brooks to end up getting selected higher than expected. Many teams have him as a late second-round or early third-round pick, but there are a number of teams picking high in Round 2 that need linebacker help. Thus, Brooks is in consideration to go higher in the second round.

Nick Tiano, QB, Chattanooga
There has been a buzz in the scouting community about Tiano. While his stats don’t blow evaluators away, they do like the 6-foot-5, 240-pounder’s skill set as a big quarterback with arm talent. Tiano completed 53 percent of his passes in 2019 for 2,242 yards with 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. In 2018, he completed 62 percent of his passes for 2,674 yards and 15 touchdowns. Tiano has put himself in contention for Day 3 with mid-round potential.

Ryan Willis, QB, Virginia Tech
Willis is another sleeper quarterback who could be drafted during the third day of the 2020 NFL Draft. As a junior, he completed 59 percent of his passes for 2,716 yards with 24 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Virginia Tech then went to a running quarterback for Willis’ senior season. Willis (6-4, 220) has quality size and could compete to be a third-string quarterback in training camp.

2020 NFL Draft Stock Down

Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn
Last week, I circled back with some team sources to see if Wanogho was rising in the final weeks before the draft and if he had a shot of bein a late first-round pick. Team sources have raved about Wanogho’s tremendous skill set since the start of the process, and they say his physical talent is on a par with high first-rounders like Georgia’s Andrew Thomas and Alabama’s Jedrick Wills. However after checking in with evaluators at handful of teams, none of them thought Wanogho could be a late first-rounder because he is said to have bad football character. Hence, Wanogho looks destined to be a second-day pick.

Isaiah Wilson, OT, Georgia
Wilson is another prospect who had the potential to be late first-round pick because he also has a good skill set for the next level. In speaking with team sources last week in the same conversation about Wanogho, a few teams thought Wilson might sneak into the first round, but most thought he would slide to the second day of the 2020 NFL Draft. Some think Wilson might be better off moving inside to guard in the NFL.

Zack Baun, LB, Wisconsin
In speaking with sources at a handful of different teams, the consensus opinion was they did not see a first-round talent in Baun and they believe that he belongs on Day 2 of the 2020 NFL Draft. The 6-foot-2, 240-pound Baun as some size limitations as an edge rusher for the NFL, which hurts him for different teams that want length on the edge. In speaking to six team sources, five thought Baun should go on Day 2. One team source said they thought he could go late in the first round because of the need for edge rushers and Baun’s ability to get after the quarterback, as evidenced by his 12.5 sacks in 2019.

It only takes one team to fall in love, so Baun has a shot at being a first-round pick. However, the consensus around the league has him going on the second day of the 2020 NFL Draft and not being a first-rounder like some project.
