Published at 3/2/2020 10:14:19 AM

My Post-Combine Mock Draft. 32 Selections, 32 Write Ups. How our competition works: 1 Point for slotting players to correct team OR correct pick number, no trade predictions. Makes doing the impossible a little easier. Good luck, Chosen One & Sanzano.

Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Bengals: Joe Burrow, Quarterback, LSU

The only possible way Burrow isn't the #1 Pick is if he pulls an Eli or the Bengals decide to shock the world. Burrow has recently stated that he is willing to play for the Bengals if they do select him, and the Bengals have already begun to shop Andy Dalton. Burrow will be a Bengal.


2. Redskins: Chase Young, 3-4 Outside Linebacker, Ohio State

The Redskins all pulling out all the stops in hopes to get a treasure trove of riches for the #2 Pick, but my Dolphins seem to be calling their bluff. If the Redskins don't lower their price, they will be forced to stay put. Should this happen, the Redskins would be fools not to draft Chase Young. He is by far the best player in the draft, and the worry about paying all of the 1st Rounders on their D-Line must be ignored to add a talent like him. The 49ers didn't shy away from drafting Bosa even though they already had Buckner, Ford and Armstead, and look how that ended up. The Redskins should do the same.


3. Lions: Derrick Brown, 3-4 Defensive End, Auburn

This is a tough one. Should the Lions draft their heir apparent to Stafford? Should they draft Okudah to aid their horrible secondary? Or should they draft the second best player in the draft in Brown. I've had them going with Okudah until now, but Brown was just insane at the Combine. Okudah also didn't run as fast as some believed he would.


4. Giants: Jeff Okudah, Cornerback, Ohio State

The Giants have recently joined the Redskins and Lions in voicing to the league that they are open for business, but I can't imagine them passing on Okudah if he makes it past the Lions. The Giants need serious help in their secondary, even more so than at O-Line and Wideout.


5. Dolphins: Tua Tagovailoa, Quarterback, Alabama

Even though I think my Phins should wait for Lawrence in next year's draft, it's obvious they love Tua. They've coveted him ever since he led Bama to the title a few years back, evening going so far to tank for him and then stop doing so after he got injured. They're playing hard ball with the Redskins by making it appear as though they like Herbert just as much as Tua, but we all know that isn't true.


6. Chargers: Justin Herbert, Quarterback, Oregon

Herbert was off the charts at the Combine, so I can't imagine the Chargers passing on him should he make it to them at #6 (assuming Burrow and Tua are already off the board). With Rivers gone, the Chargers have to draft their next Franchise Signal Caller.


7. Panthers: Jedrick Wills, Offensive Tackle, Alabama

This is another tough selection because the Panthers could go in a variety of different directions, but I settled on Wills since the Panthers are going to roll with Newton and they need to help preserve his health. Simmons will also be in play after his crazy numbers at the Combine.


8. Cardinals: CeeDee Lamb, Wide Receiver, Oklahoma

We all know the Cardinals' top need is to protect their investment in Kyler Murray, but I have a feeling Murray is going to do all he can to get Kliff to draft his boy, CeeDee. It isn't the most pressing of needs, sure, but Wideout is still a big need because Fitzgerald won't be around much longer. The Cards could address their O-Line needs in Free Agency.


9. Jaguars: Isaiah Simmons, Outside Linebacker, Clemson

The Jaguars desperately need some help at Cornerback, being a completely different team last year after trading away Ramsey. But since Linebacker is also a need and Simmons is one heck of an athlete, the Jags would be crazy to pass on him if he's available at #9.


10. Browns: Mekhi Becton, Offensive Tackle, Louisville

The Browns have to address their O-Line issues, so this one comes down to Becton and Wirfs. Both created loads of buzz at the Combine, but I think the Browns will go with Becton since he's the better prospect for LT. Wirfs might be able to develop into a LT with the numbers he posted, but he does appear to be more of a G or RT at the next level.


11. Jets: Tristan Wirfs, Offensive Guard, Iowa

Much like the Browns, the Jets need to address the issues with their O-Line. Darnold was constantly under pressure, and Bell put up the worst numbers of his career. Wirfs can play almost every position on the O-Line, so the Jets can plug him in where they need him the most. Not too shabby for having to get the third pick of the O-Linemen.


12. Raiders: Jerry Jeudy, Wide Receiver, Alabama

Jeudy has done everything possible to keep his draft stock up, and yet, he still seems to be slipping a bit due to the QBs, OLs, and Elite Defensive Players. The Raiders will take him in a heartbreak though, having a serious need at Wideout. Whether they can get Brady or have to stick with Carr, they will have to give their QB some more weapons.


13. Colts: Javon Kinlaw, 3-4 Defensive End, South Carolina

If Lamb or Jeudy are still available, I'd have to imagine the Colts take them in an instance. But since both are off the board, I think the Colts will go with the best available DL rather than go with Ruggs. Kinlaw has some off the field issues, but his upside on the field is too good to pass up on at this point.


14. Buccaneers: Andrew Thomas, Offensive Tackle, Georgia

Whether the Bucs can nab Rivers or retain Winston, they could use an upgrade to their O-Line. Thomas was once considered the Top LT, but Wills, Wirfs, and Beckton have continued to rise. Thomas should give the Bucs a great blindside blocker for the next decade.


15. Broncos: Henry Ruggs, Wide Receiver, Alabama

Lock is clearly the future (if even just the short term) for the Broncos, so they'll need to give him more weapons than just Fant. Ruggs will give the Broncos a serious deep threat, which they should be able to capitalize on with Lock's arm.


16. Falcons: A.J. Epenesa, 3-4 Defensive End, Iowa

Epenesa didn't put up great numbers at the Combine, but no one expected him to actually do so. Even if he only put up 17 Bench Press Reps, Epenesa remains one of the strongest D-Linemen in the draft. He also has hands and technique similar to Nick Bosa. His tape proves it, and the Falcons could cash in big on him.
