2020 NFL Mock Draft April 27

The 2019 NFL Draft may have just ended, but it is never too early to look ahead to next season and what team could be targeting. The draft order will is decided by current Super Bowl odds. Here is the 2020 NFL Mock Draft.

1. Miami Dolphins- Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama

Miami traded for Josh Rosen, but that doesn’t mean they’ll keep him with how good the quarterbacks in the 2020 NFL Draft are regarded. Tagovailoa plays flawlessly for most games, but has struggled in some big games near the end of last season. He is still currently the top quarterback in the class, but he needs to prove it on the field in 2019.

2. Arizona Cardinals- Tre Smith, OT, Tennessee

The Cardinals failed to get protection for Kyler Murray in the 2019 NFL Draft. That means they need to put an emphasis on that early in the draft to keep him upright. Smith has been playing since he was a freshman and has stood out on some bad Tennessee teams.

3. Cincinnati Bengals- Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia

If the Bengals are selecting this highly again, they need to make a change at quarterback. They have solid skill position players and have tried to address their offensive line in the last two drafts. Fromm is a polished passer who has helped Georgia rise to prominence over the last few seasons.

4. Detroit Lions- Derrick Brown, DT, Auburn

Detroit can still get better in the trenches on the defensive line. Brown would have likely been a top 10 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, but decided to go back to school.

5. Washington Redskins- Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama

Jeudy has shown flashes of being a number one receiver with his ability to get open and cut on a dime. The Redskins had a good 2019 NFL Draft, but still need to give Dwayne Haskins more targets to work with.

6. Buffalo Bills- Laviska Shenault, WR, Colorado

The Bills gave Josh Allen more weapons this offseason, but they still need a go-to receiver. Shenault has impressed at Colorado and is extremely athletic.

7. Oakland Raiders- Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon

Jon Gruden was reportedly interested in a lot of quarterbacks at the top of the 2019 NFL Draft. He is not attached to Derek Carr, so if they have another top 10 pick, it may be useful to get a quarterback. Herbert was a projected top 10 pick if he came out for the 2019 NFL Draft.

8. Denver Broncos- Grant Delpit, S, LSU

The Broncos had a solid draft this year and can add to it next year by taking Delpit. In a secondary loaded with talent Delpit stood out with his great play in 2018.

9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- A.J. Epenesa, Edge, Iowa

One area that the Buccaneers didn’t address in the draft was edge rusher. Epenesa jumped out on tape when watching some of Iowa’s prospects that were eligible for the 2019 NFL Draft.

10. New York Giants- Chase Young, Edge, Ohio State

Young looked good last season playing next to Dre’Mont Jones and Nick Bosa (for three games). The Giants need to get a great edge rusher.

11. Tennessee Titans- Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama

The Titans have built a solid roster, but need Marcus Mariota to step up, or they will be picking this high again. Diggs could’ve come out for the 2019 NFL Draft, but instead chose to go back to school.

12. New York Jets- Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia

While the Jets addressed the defense in this year’s draft, they need to make sure Sam Darnold is protected for next season and can take Thomas to ensure that happens.

13. Carolina Panthers- Isaiah Simmons, S, Clemson

Carolina had an excellent draft, but did not address the safety position. Simmons has been the best player in Clemson’s secondary and needs to take it to the next level this season.

14. Jacksonville Jaguars- Tarik Black, WR, Michigan

Jacksonville has a solid roster, but they need some receivers on the outside to help Nick Foles. Black has yet to play up to his talent level, but has a big chance to do so this year.

15. San Francisco 49ers- Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama

Safety went from a position of strength a few years ago to a position of need for the 49ers. McKinney played well in 2018 and should take a huge step forward this season.

16. Houston Texans- Raekwon Davis, DE/DT, Alabama

Davis could have come out of school for this draft, but is going back to Alabama for one more season. The Texans have J.J. Watt, but could use more defensive linemen.

17. Seattle Seahawks- Trey Adams, OT, Washington

Adams has had injury issues, but was thought of as a first round pick at one point in his college career. He’ll have to stay healthy in 2019 to be selected this highly.

18. Atlanta Falcons- Terrell Lewis, Edge, Alabama

The Falcons haven’t gotten enough production out of their pass rushers and didn’t address it in this year’s draft. Lewis is a good athlete who could have a monster season for the Crimson Tide.

19. Baltimore Ravens- Nick Coe, Edge, Auburn

Baltimore lost their pass rushers and didn’t fill that need yet. Coe and Brown will team up to be a good defensive line at Auburn.

20. Green Bay Packers- Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama

Green Bay got some good defensive players in the draft, but need to fix the middle of the defense. Moses was the best linebacker for Alabama this season.

21. Dallas Cowboys- Albert Okwuegbunam, TE, Missouri

Jason Witten came out of retirement, but that won’t last long. Dak Prescott needs another security blanket.

22. Minnesota Vikings- Walker Little, OT, Stanford

The Vikings addressed the offensive line in the 2019 NFL Draft, but could still use a great lineman for the future.

23. Pittsburgh Steelers- Meckhi Becton, OT, Louisville

Pittsburgh traded Marcus Gilbert to the Cardinals and may need to get an adequate replacement.

24. Philadelphia Eagles- C.J. Henderson, CB, Florida

Last season the Eagles had injuries at the corner position and paid for it. They need to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

25. Oakland Raiders (via Chi)- Tommy Kraemer, OG/C, Notre Dame

The Raiders have acquired some talent at the skill positions, but need to get some more help on the interior of the offensive line.

26. Los Angeles Chargers- Paddy Fisher, LB, Northwestern

Thomas Davis was acquired at linebacker, but he is over-the-hill. They’ll need to get someone in the middle.

27. Indianapolis Colts- Najee Harris, RB, Alabama

Indianapolis has Marlon Mack, but could still use another running back after focusing on the defense and offensive line in the last few drafts.

28. Cleveland Browns- Jacob Phillips, LB, LSU

The Browns actually have a roster without many needs, but they could use a linebacker in the middle of the defense.

29. New Orleans Saints- Jaylon Johnson, CB, Utah

Eli Apple was acquired last year, but the Saints still need more help at the corner position.

30. Los Angeles Rams- Tyler Biadasz, C, Wisconsin

The Rams have a decent offensive line, but have lost some players and some of the other players on the line are aging.

31. New England Patriots- Khalid Kareem, Edge, Notre Dame

The Patriots lost Trey Flowers this season and the Patriots could benefit from some better defensive line play.

32. Kansas City Chiefs- J.K. Dobbins, RB, Ohio State

Kansas City released Kareem Hunt and signed Carlos Hyde, but the offense could benefit from another running back to go with him.

Chase claypool will not only have a better game vs Michigan and tarik black but he’ll have a better season , tarik black is injury prone and hasn’t shown anything to be a top 15 pick n next year’s draft

Thanks for reading! Claypool is a decent prospect, but I don’t think he goes round one. If there is another receiver that goes in the first round I think it’s Collin Johnson out of Texas. We’ll see though, a lot of football to be played still.

I think the safety from SMU is underrated Patrick Nelson, check his highlights out and comment #2.
