2020 NFL Mock Draft by ColinKalt 1.0

In my 2020 NFL Mock Draft, I'm changing up my methodology. I will be incorporating where a player will be selected, my personal opinions and preferences on each selection. Along with my personal takes, I will be using Drafttek, Walter Football, Fanspeak, Pro Football Focus, NFL Draft Geek, Draft Blaster, and the Draft Network as references for team needs and team rumors on certain picks. To put it simply: 1st Round Methodology: Player selected no matter the team, experts picks, my personal pick, and team needs. 2nd Round Methodology: Player selected no matter the team, team needs, and my personal pick.

Round 1

1. Bengals: Joe Burrow, Quarterback, LSU

Burrow is coming home to save the Bengals.

2. Redskins: Chase Young, Defensive End, Ohio State

Redskins hired Ron Rivera as their new head coach which makes Chase Young a perfect fit for him.

3. Lions: Jeff Okudah, Cornerback, Ohio State

Lock down corner. Okudah will bring his long arms, great anticipation, and winning pedigree to aid the Jaguars into forming a stout defense.

4. Dolphins: Tua Tagovailoa, Quarterback, Alabama

Giants get:
Surgical Archer. Tua looks to be the face of any NFL franchise. Tua’s accuracy and his ability to process his pre & post snap reads effectively will leave any NFL franchise more than satisfied on draft night.

Previous Pick: Jedrick Wills

5. Giants: Isaiah Simmons, Outside Linebacker, Clemson

Versatile athlete. He plays DB and LB at an elite level. Has the ability to rush the passer. Simmons performances during the CFB Playoffs places in the top-3 on most draft boards.

6. Chargers: Justin Herbert, Quarterback, Oregon

Herbert's likely going to be an acquired taste for some come draft time. You have to bet on his high end that saw him have five games with passing grades over 80.0 this past season instead of his low end that earned game grades below 60.0.

Athletic, mobile, and coachable. He displayed humility by coming back for his senior year and choosing to participate in the Senior Bowl. He’s a grinder. I think he’ll have a long NFL career. Chargers will be looking for a QB.

7. Panthers: Derrick Brown, Defensive Tackle, Auburn

Player Notes: "College football players are not supposed to be as strong as Brown. I've never seen someone lift so many opposing offensive linemen up in the air in my life. He put it all together as a pass-rusher this season and earned a 90.4 grade in that regard."


Team Fit: McCoy will be a free agent. Brown will fill that role along with taking pressure off of OLB/Edge Brian Burns (2019 1st round pick).

8. Cardinals: Jedrick Wills, Offensive Tackle, Alabama

Walling Off Weak Edges! Willis' lateral agility, and balance makes him the best RT in the draft. Wills is athletic enough with reps to refine his kick step in pass pro to make him a reliable LT.

"It's difficult to talk about Wills without gushing over how explosive he is. In a tackle class full of freak athletes, he may be the freakiest. His 12 big-time blocks in the run game this year were the most of any tackle in the class."


9. Jaguars: CeeDee Lamb, Wide Receiver, Oklahoma

Speed, Space Creator. Lamb creates space with his speed and quickness. His YAC will give teams the option to add another way of running the football.

10. Browns: Andrew Thomas, Offensive Tackle, Georgia

Thomas is versatile tackle that can line up at RT or LT of the best OT in this draft. Thomas could be a top-10 pick. In some mock drafts, he is slotted at #4 and in other mocks, he has been in 7-11 range.

11. Jets: Tristan Wirfs, Offensive Tackle, Iowa

Jets need OTs and WRs. This a deep draft for both position. Factors to think- 1. Protect Darnold 2. Advance Run Game.

12. Raiders: Jerry Jeudy, Wide Receiver, Alabama

My #4 on my big board. Jeudy's route running, and razor sharp agility are reasons he is such a elite talent. Drops? I don't see them. Football speed.

Notable CAREER stats: 159-Rec, 26-ReTDs, & 70% Catch Rate.

Jeudy lulled everyone to sleep with a ho-hum regular season then reminded everyone how special he is in Alabama's bowl win over Michigan. He went for 200-plus yards in that game and showed his freakish blend of speed and route running.

13. 49ers: Henry Ruggs, Wide Receiver, Alabama

Rapid TD Receiver! Ruggs will blaze pass you for a TD on 24% of his catches. That's more than Higgins, Lamb, Jeudy, Jefferson, and Chase. Ruggs is the next Tyreek Hill

Previous Pick: Henry Ruggs III

"Elite speed, after-the-catch ability and ball skills — that's a winning combination. And it's that combination that helped Ruggs find the end zone on 24 of his 98 career catches."


14. Buccaneers: Javon Kinlaw, Defensive Tackle, South Carolina

Killer Instinct Interior Kinlaw. Kinlaw wrecked the morale of the OL at the Senior Bowl practices. He dominated all of his reps in the practices.
Notable CAREER stats: 10-Sacks, 4-FRs, & 3-FFs

"With multiple seasons of elite grades as a pass-rusher and prototypical size, length and get-off, Kinlaw is an extremely safe bet to translate to the NFL."


15. Broncos: Mekhi Becton, Offensive Tackle, Louisville

Club Bouncer Blocker! Big, and Built. Becton has NFL size and length. His quickness and technique has NFL potential. It will be a delight to watch his professional development

16. Falcons: C.J. Henderson, Cornerback, Florida

Event Elevator! Epenesa rises to the level of his competitors. He's a gamer. He puts up big numbers in big game. Big time players make big time plays.

"It feels like the Falcons have been looking for that pass rusher on the edge for a long time. This is the best chance they’ve has to actually find that guy in several years."

-NFL Draft Geek

"Epenesa dominated college football from the time he stepped foot on the field as a freshman. His 91.5 career pass-rushing grade is one of the highest of any edge prospect in the class."
