2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati Bengals

Damon Arnette, CB, Ohio State

View Top Cornerbacks

The Bengals were very aggressive in free agency, and can spread around draft picks to get the roster younger and cheaper.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - Washington RedskinsWashington Redskins

Colby Parkinson, TE, Stanford

View Top Tight Ends

The Redskins added an interesting TE in free agency, but need this to be a solid group to help along a young QB.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - Detroit Lions

Detroit Lions

Van Jefferson, WR, Florida

View Top Wide Receivers

With defensive studs taken with their first three picks, the Lions work on dealing with their WR issue after this year, when they have no guys under contract. They will surely extend Galloway, but need to add a prospect they know that can contribute immediately.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - New York JetsNew York Jets (from NYG)

James Lynch, DE/DT, Baylor

View Top Defensive Ends

The Jets get a versatile, relentless presence on the D-line with Lynch. The defense started to really come together last year, but it needs talent at all levels.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - Carolina PanthersCarolina Panthers

Solomon Kindley, OG, Georgia

View Top Offensive Guards

Injuries on the interior of the offensive line for the Panthers have gotten their QB hurt in the past, and they need to get some young talent there.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - Miami Dolphins

Miami Dolphins

Kyle Dugger, S, Lenoir-Rhyne

View Top Safeties

With perhaps the best corner tandem in the league now, the Dolphins should double down and build a secondary with 4-5 elite players. This will allow this Pats style defense to get very creative in the front seven.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - San Diego Chargers

Los Angeles Chargers

Jordyn Brooks, ILB, Texas Tech

View Top Inside Linebackers

Up and down the roster the Chargers look fairly solid. The key will obviously be at QB, but that will be addressed at the start of this draft. Linebacker is probably one of the biggest needs at the moment, even after free agency.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - Arizona CardinalsArizona Cardinals

Ashtyn Davis, S, California

View Top Safeties

With all of the excitement about the offense, the Cardinals still have some big needs on defense. Kennard will end up being a big move for them in terms of the front seven, but the secondary needs work.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - Jackson JaguarsJacksonville Jaguars

Logan Stenberg, OG, Kentucky

View Top Offensive Guards

A young QB and a shaky offensive line is not a good match. This is the point of the draft where there should be a run on guard, so time to get one now.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - Cleveland Browns

Cleveland Browns

Raekwon Davis, DT/DE, Alabama

View Top Defensive Ends

The Browns grab a versatile, run stuffing defensive lineman here. They are pretty stout up front, but this can immediately be the primary strength of the team as they build up young talent the next few years.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - Indianapolis Colts

Indianapolis Colts

Davion Taylor, S, Colorado

View Top Safeties

The fun thing about the Colts draft is that they don’t reach for players, and simply follow their board in terms of talent.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - Tampa Bay BuccaneersTampa Bay Buccaneers

Julian Blackmon, S, Utah

View Top Safeties

The Bucs have half a great defense and half a lousy one. They have to fix their secondary this offseason, or else they have no chance to put together a winning season.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - Denver Broncos

Denver Broncos

Cameron Dantzler, CB, Mississippi State

View Top Cornerbacks

The Broncos are in year two of a rebuild at corner. The important thing to do now is to start the process of developing some young talent at the position.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - Atlanta Falcons

Atlanta Falcons

Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame

View Top Wide Receivers

The Falcons have a nice duo at WR, but could see the standard set by the Chiefs in having a wide open passing attack, and once again go to a spread out, creative passing attack.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - New York JetsNew York Jets

Lloyd Cushenberry III, C, LSU

View Top Centers

The Jets have to keep their QB healthy and re-establish their run game. They are paying a fortune for a RB that didn’t produce, and need to give him every opportunity to do so, or just let him walk after this year.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

Michael Pittman Jr., WR, USC

View Top Wide Receivers

The Raiders have to come out of this draft with two wide receivers. Jefferson could be a major steal in this draft. Runs perfect routes.






NFL Mock Draft - Oakland Raiders

Las Vegas Raiders (from Chicago)

Julian Okwara, OLB/DE, Notre Dame

View Top Outside Linebackers

The Raiders did a nice job of finding some front seven pieces last year in the draft. However, they can’t stop with where they are now. With a rotating slew of pass rushers, they can wreak havoc on opposing QB’s.

More front seven help for a defense that is undergoing a major scheme and philosophy change.

The Broncos have two superb young WR’s, but they shouldn’t miss the WR party going on in the first three rounds of this year’s draft.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - Los Angeles Rams

Los Angeles Rams

Bryce Hall, CB, Virginia

View Top Cornerbacks

Youth at key positions is going to be the mantra for the Rams this offseason, both in free agency and in the draft.  They need to get not only younger, but also cheaper.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - Detroit LionsDetroit Lions (from Philadelphia)

Cam Akers, RB, Florida State

View Top Running Backs

Akers could end up being one of the steals of the draft. The Lions have a very good RB in Johnson, with some other solid players, but are probably a RB away from having a solid running back core.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft Buffalo Bills

Buffalo Bills

Jalen Reagor, WR, TCU

View Top Wide Receivers

The Bills made a huge move in free agency for a WR. However, that is still a position that needs to be addressed. Perhaps for the first time in decades the Bills can assemble an elite WR core.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - New England Patriots

New England Patriots

Albert Okwuegbunam, TE, Missouri

View Top Tight Ends

The Patriots offense depends on having wide receivers, running backs, and tight ends that they can use interchangeably throughout games. Right now they have a huge need at the position.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - New Orleans Saints

New Orleans Saints

Zack Moss, RB, Utah

View Top Running Backs

Kamara was at his best when he had a thumper next to him in the backfield. He needs to be part of a 1-2 punch.

NFL Mock Draft - Minnesota Vikings

Minnesota Vikings

Saahdiq Charles, OT, LSU

View Top Offensive Tackles

If the Vikings can control the offensive line, they win games. They are just a few pieces away from having an elite offensive line. Drafting and hitting on players early also allows them to get cheaper.

Chase Lucas, CB, Arizona State

The Texans are moving away from big contract players and more toward depth across the roster.

Khalid Kareem, DE, Notre Dame

The Raiders will probably address their biggest needs in free agency. They are continuing to build a dynamic pass rush. This comes from all over the front seven, and they are probably a piece or two away from having a solid unit.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore Ravens

Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn

View Top Offensive Tackles

As stated, the Ravens are slowly developing a dynamic run game that starts with their read-option QB, but also includes a power and speed element. This only works with a deep, talented offensive line.

The Titans hit on their WR pick last year, and can now participate in the WR frenzy in this year’s draft.

NFL Mock Draft - Green Bay Packers

Green Bay Packers

Lynn Bowden Jr., WR, Kentucky

View Top Wide Receivers

Can Aaron Rodgers just one year have an elite, 3-man WR core like he did at the start of his career? They know they have one, and then several guys on their roster trying to emerge as the 2 and 3. Adding new talent to the mix could help bring things along.

2020 NFL Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft - Denver BroncosDenver Broncos (from San Francisco)

Willie Gay Jr., ILB, Mississippi State

View Top Inside Linebackers

More than anything, the Broncos want to have a shut down front seven. They have arguably the best DE combo in the league, when healthy. They need to build up their linebacker core to allow these guys to always keep moving forward.

Even though the Chiefs won the SB, it doesn’t mean they aren’t still concerned about the development of their new defensive scheme. Look for them to keep adding players that better fit their front seven.

  1. As a Packer fan I have to say it was not well thought out as it does not address any of the Packers needs and gives them extra players in early rounds manned by veterans that aren’t going anywhere most likely. At least you didn’t mock GB with a WR in round 1 which will never happen btw. Packers need a big run stuffing tackle and a ILB who can both play the pass and the run. This draft is top heavy with WR’s, Tackles, and QB’s so the Packers will be able to secure a WR they like in a spot they traditionally like in round 2-3. I also wouldn’t be surprised to see them add a top RB early to strengthen their ground game to dominate similar to San Fran and Tennessee.

  2. Lions Draft doesn’t make sense. First off the Lions are going to get multiple picks for them to move down and a next year pick means nothing to this regime if they don’t win this year. Next they are not going to draft a WR in the second round when there are multiple DL that can help them. that is the one position they can add much needed value at DT. Wasted pick in the third and fourth round on a RB and a TE. IF you want a RB take the kid out of Wisconsin in the second round but Blaylock, Cleveland, Ruiz, Lewis, Simpson all have better value in the second round. Deep WR class means you can take a project in the fourth or one of your third round picks. in the third round Lynch, Kindley, Brooks, etc. all have much higher value then Akers does. Claypool, Bowden, Hamler, etc. Al have better value as the second pick in the third round. But a good effort all around tough to do a draft at this point.

    • Agree that the Lions will get multiple picks for moving from 3 to 5. One mistake that some mocks are making with projecting this trade is using the trade value chart. That gets thrown out the window with picks near the top of the draft involving QB’s. However, do believe it will involved a mix of picks this year and next. Thinking about adding a third into the mix though. Next, WR is a big need for this team. They have only one WR on contract after this year. Yes, they need to win now, but there are limits. Someone like Mims could really open the offense and take some pressure off of a defense that will have many new parts. Believe the Lions are making a bigger move to the true def that Patricia wants to run which is better described as a 3-3-5. They will rarely have three guys with hands in the dirt up front. If they are moving more toward this, they need more linebackers that are big and can move. Two guys that will be coveted by “Pats” type defenses at Miami, Tennessee, Detroit, and NE itself: Baun and Weaver. These guys are Hightower clones. Akers was just too good of a value as the mock unfolded. There is a need at RB, and Akers could be very underrated. That FSU line and coaching was awful. His Combine was an eye opener. TE is a coin flip. Maybe they still like James, but this offense would love to use more 12 personnel. Thank you very much for the input! It is what makes the site better.
