Round 1

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

I have gotten creative with this pick in my other mock drafts. The Bengals may or may not hold on to Andy Dalton in 2020, but either they will take Burrow at #1. I don't even think a king's ransom from MIA would change CIN mind, Burrow is that good at the position that matters the most.

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

There is just no scenario where they Redskins pass on Chase Young at #2. He is the best non QB in the draft and we all saw how Bosa impacted the 49ers at #2 overall last year. Add Young to the bevy of SEC talent the Redskins posess and the Redskins defensive line has the potetnial to be the best in the league.

3. Dolphins: Tua Tagovailoa, Quarterback, Alabama

TRADE: MIA #5, #70 for DET #3

Tua has proven this off season that his fully healed from his injury. He has a lot of the important traits that translate at the next level. His ability to read defenses and go through progressions in addition to his accuracy draw comparisons to Drew Brees and rightfully so.

4. Giants: Jedrick Wills, Offensive Tackle, Alabama

Wills will be an immediate starter at RT for the Giants. It will be important to give Daniel Jones good protection. He fumbled a lot last year and a good part of the that was the lack of protection. A safe pick, Wills will be a starter for the next 10 years and has potential to play LT down the line.

5. Lions: Derrick Brown, Defensive Tackle, Auburn

TRADED BACK: DET #3, for MIA #5, #70

I think Matt Patricia is coaching for his job this year. Trading back makes perfect sense because Patricia can't afford to take a CB at #3 overall even with the absense of Slay. Brown can be a disruptor in the run game and be foundation peice for to pair alongside Tre Flowers.

6. Chargers: Isaiah Simmons, Outside Linebacker, Clemson

Its a copy cat league and the Chargers are building the blueprint to beating Pat Mahomes and the Chiefs. Adding Simmons and pairing him on a defense with Derwin James gives them a lot of versatility and play makers on both levels.

7. Jets: Tristan Wirfs, Offensive Tackle, Iowa

TRADE: NYJ #13, #68, #191 for CAR #7, #221

Jets trade up to get the Tackle they prefer. Wirfs can play G, LT or RT for the Jets. They signed George Fant in the offseason but Wirfs gives them some flexibility, while protecting their franchise QB.

The Panthers are willing trade partners as Simmons gets swooped at #6 and they need more picks as Rhule fills out roster.

8. Cardinals: CeeDee Lamb, Wide Receiver, Oklahoma

TRADE: ARI Kristian Kirk to TB for 2021 4th round pick

Trading Kirk to the Buccaneers makes a lot of sense. First of Bruce Arians coached Kirk back in 2017 his rookie year. Secondly, the Bucs are clearly all in on winning a super bowl in the next year or two. I recently saw Daniel Jeremiah draft Jeudy to the Bucs but acquiring Kirk gives them a legit WR3 that can stretch the field opposite Mike Evans.

9. Jaguars: Jeff Okudah, Cornerback, Ohio State

You better believe that Trent Baalke is in love with Jeff Okudah. The Jaguars desperately need some help at CB after losing Ramsey and Bouye. I could also see Henderson being the pick here but I like Okudah as the top CB in the draft and I think most teams do too.

10. Browns: Mekhi Becton, Offensive Tackle, Louisville

Becton has boom or bust potential. His size at 6'7 is ideal for a LT and he is super fast which shows he is athletic. That being said a lot of scouts are worried about his weight being an issue after he gets drafted.

I think this is a perfect Browns pick and heading into 2020 they have their T positions locked down for at least the next couple of years.

11. Panthers: Javon Kinlaw, Defensive Tackle, South Carolina

TRADED BACK: #7, #221 for #13, #68, #191

Kinlaw is a bit raw but has potential to develop into a premier DT in this league. He could very well slide outside of the top 15 due to worries about knee tendinitis. At #11 he is a blue chip player for the rebuilding Panthers.

12. Raiders: Henry Ruggs, Wide Receiver, Alabama

In memory of his father Marc Davis selects a speedster as the Raiders begin a new era in Las Vegas. Actually Ruggs and Derek Carr will make a nice pairing since Carr can throw the intermediate and deep ball well.

Mayock and Gruden will love Ruggs toughness. He will bring field stretching ability that pairs nicely with Tyrell Williams and Darren Waller. The Raiders have an elite offensive line and a star in the making at RB. They could be scary with the ability to run it down your throat and throw it over the top.

13. 49ers: Jerry Jeudy, Wide Receiver, Alabama

.The 49ers will most certainly be selecting a WR at #13. It is a major need for them. Most mocks have had either of the top 3 WR's. I think Jeudy is their preferred choice but they do not have the ammo to move up to get him.

If he is there at #13 they will not pass him up. Jeudy is a perfect fit for Kyle Shanahan's offense. He is an exceptional route runner and is great with the ball in his hands. Those are perfect traits that will translate to Shanahan's system. Jeudy will be a 1,000 yard receiver his first year.

14. Buccaneers: C.J. Henderson, Cornerback, Florida

I have the CB's falling a bit in my draft. With QB needy teams at the top and teams investing in the trenches to build thier team around, skill positions like CB and WR might fall a bit farther than people might realize.

A popular pick is an offensive lineman but I disagree. Brady always has been a quick thrower of the football and he has a guy in Mike Evans that can go get it. The Buccaneers are in super bowl mode and they sure as hell are not making a super bowl let alone the playoffs without a number one corner. Henderson can be that guy and would help complete this Bucs defense!

15. Dolphins: Andrew Thomas, Offensive Tackle, Georgia

TRADE: MIA #18, # 56, 2021 6th round pick For DEN #15 #77 #137

The Dolphins have plenty of ammunition to be moving up and down trade boards over the next 3 days. Some have Thomas as the top T prospect but I think his upside is less than guys like Becton and Wirfs. He is a more safer pick but is a plug and play starter for a team desperate need of Tackle help.

The Dolphins offensive line is a mess. After trading up to get Tua at #3 the Dolphins will need to address the LT position. Thomas brings enough versatility to start at either LT or RT. The Dolphins are weak at RT with Jesse Davis being more of a swing guy and Thomas would be protecting Tua's blind side.

The Dolphins line is a mess and seems to always be an area of weakness. Julien Davenport can hold it down on the left side but Jesse Davis is probably best suited as a swing Tackle. Thomas can come in and replace Davis day 1. It is also a plus that he can play RT or LT. Some view Thomas as the best Tackle Prospect because of his consistent play at Georgia. I could have mocked him to the Browns at #10 but they go with Becton because of his upside.

16. Falcons: K'Lavon Chaisson, Defensive End, LSU

This is an easy pick for the Falcons. Chaisson possesses similar traits to Bruce Irvin who Dan Quinn coached in Seattle. Chaisson most likely gets snaps at SLB and DE on 3rd down for the Falcons. This might be a luxury pick but Dan Quinn can get the most out of Chaisson. When the Falcons made the super bowl in 2017 they had a great defense, Quinn like Patricia is playing for his job and goes with what he knows best.
