Projected 2020 NFL draft order

Miami has, reportedly, coveted Tua for some time, and there's no team that will be checking the more than the Dolphins. He simply puts a lot of stress on offensive tackles to anchor because of his blend of length, size and power. Travis Etienne, Clemson 14 2. With only four teams remaining, the order 1-28 is set in stone, and many conditional picks are coming into view. Indy would be smart to try and prioritize him. These rankings will be updated occasionally as needed throughout the week so be sure to check back in with The Draft Network often to gain an edge on your leaguemates. Shaq Quarterman, Miami 30 4. Johnny Culbreath was the last offensive lineman to be drafted from the program as he was selected by the Detroit Lions in the seventh-round No. If you haven't yet used our Mock Draft Machine this season, make sure you take it for a spin. A converted receiver with exciting physical traits, Layne is in the discussion as a top-5 corner in this class. Paddy Fisher, Northwestern 31 5. Depending on injuries, he may still get a call. While he eats up ground with his stride length and moves well, he wins because of power, length and technique. Lawson could even take a larger leap with more snaps in the upcoming season. Matt Camp is here to tell you who has earned your trust and who should be set free. January marks the official start of draft season as postseason bowl games and all-star contests are in full swing. He's also headed for free agency. I will be paying close attention to see if Hurts can successfully test condensed windows after he was part of a wide-open offense. Davis is aggressive and downhill. The 2019 version is destined to be a Day 2 selection, while the 2018 form is one that has the potential to rise all the way to being a top-15 pick. San Francisco 49ers 12-3 Average draft position: 28. McKinney is a top-flight safety, and could possibly emerge as the top safety in the class by draft night. Davis rushes with ideal natural leverage, attacking from a 6-foot-1 frame with aggressive and dynamic hands and an explosive first step. One so strong it may well get called first out of this year's Shrine alumni, and others all preempted his eligibility for the game. If you follow him on social media, you will find him always up to something on and off the field. Costello, quarterback will put it so I can high-point it. Washington traded a sixth-round selection to Denver in exchange for a seventh-round selection and quarterback. His explosion may get all the press, but one of his best qualities is his hands. Shea Patterson, Michigan 50 Running back 1. Buffalo Bills 10-5 Average draft position: 23. Yes, the Bills need a deep threat for Josh Allen but this class is so stocked at that position that Buffalo can find big-play targets throughout the draft. With a top-heavy class through the first two days of the draft, there is a lot of talent on the board. After 70 picks, the night was not over as attendees were able to take in a 75-minute Tim McGraw concert from the best seats in Nashville, putting a bow on a marvelous Day 2. He'll compete to be the top corner selected. Evaluators will want to see his adjustment to the speed and power he will be matched up against. A defensive back with that kind of size and explosiveness will be coveted in the later parts of the draft. Jacksonville won't replace Jalen Ramsey with one player but Fulton is a step in the right direction. In the 2018 draft, a mind-blowing 12 players were selected from Alabama, including four players being selected in the first round. The difference in mass is critical. Going with Jeffrey Okudah would be a significant upgrade for the secondary opposite of Darius Slay - just as long as he remains in Honolulu Blue for 2020. Right now, his game is more of a set, shuffle and extend to win during pass blocking reps. Without a worthy tackle prospect still on the board here, the Bucs opt for the best playmaker in the defensive backfield, getting a versatile playmaker who can line up all over the field. His quick mental trigger and playmaking ability at the catch point could have scouts buzzing about his performance next week. As such, I think Ojemudia has a prime opportunity to shine. In the passing game, Akers shows soft hands and a fantastic ability to create yardage after the catch. That changes with Isaiah Simmons, a prospect who. Patrick Peterson is entering the final year of his deal and even if he re-ups, Arizona desperately needs depth in the secondary. Right now, the sexy pick Giants fans like is Isaiah Simmons, but this guy does just as much, and for a more important position. While the interior crop isn't nearly as good as past years, there are some gems contained in the group with a few participating in the 2020 Reese's Senior Bowl. Walker Little, Stanford 9 3. Ojemudia is an all-around cornerback who has vast experience playing near the line of scrimmage in press man coverage, from a pedal in off-man coverage and reading the quarterback in zone coverage. I had a few first downs on this exact play throughout the season and it worked out really well. Epenesa has shown the ability to dominate at every position on the line. Godwin smiles broadly the whole time, until I turn to him at the end. Fulton needs to get stronger and play with better positioning at the catch point to avoid getting boxed out by physical receivers, but he can erase a lot of those concerns in these one-on-one matchups. Comparisons to Brady, Wilson and Brees are premature. That blend of traits enables him to effectively pound the rock between the tackles while also working off-tackle. We will continue to update this list as we confirm team-prospect meetings that took place. If he was able to better string together some promise on the field, he had the potential to turn into a franchise quarterback. He'll have a chance to quiet doubters at the Senior Bowl but for now, Herbert will provide the Colts an insurance policy against Jacoby Brissett, who has one more year left on his contract. Miami Dolphins 4-11 Average draft position: 4. Auburn's Derrick Brown could also be a legimiate option here as well, but let's face it, what we really need is a tradedown. Wanogho already has the foot speed necessary to run his feet on contact, but it's his grip strength and inability to sustain where strides must be made. The Jags could go in several directions with this pick, but rebuilding a once-great defense will get the lion's share jaguar's share of the attention. It's the same-as-usual late first-round pick. Jonathan Taylor, Wisconsin 15 3. But the Bears did challenge Hurts mentally, and he responded by leading his team. They are players that we feel would not even make a solid contribution as a training camp body. Miami traded a 2020 fifth-round selection as well as a 2nd round selection to Arizona in exchange for quarterback. He will usually rate in the top half of the players at his position and is considered a middle round draft choice. Kansas City Chiefs 11-4 Average draft position: 27. However, he is still raw and inconsistent with his technique in both press and off coverage; and that showed up several times on his 2019 tape. His ball carrier vision is below average, as he struggles to find the hole unless it is obvious. He ultimately chose Auburn with only one year of experience. New York Giants 4-11 Average draft position: 4. South Carolina State has recently produced the likes of Indianapolis Colts linebacker Darius Leonard and Pittsburgh Steelers defensive tackle Javon Hargrave. That being said, if he is ever going to reach his full potential, he needs to learn how to trust his offensive line and find a better feel for the game. I've heard mixed reviews on his tape from people I have spoken to but that type of testing is exceptional. Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama 36. First off, what if the Bungals pass on Joe Burrow? He was a 45-game starter during his time with the Cougars placed exclusively at left tackle. In Miami, he'd be part of a rebuilding effort that would begin with protecting the new face of the franchise, Tua Tagovailoa. Watch the video above to see why Shanahan and his son Carter are so excited for the album release. The traded their fifth-round selection as well as their third-round selection to Jacksonville in exchange for defensive end. As a sophomore, Love threw for 3,567 yards with 32 touchdowns and only six interceptions. With that in mind, I can't imagine the Browns coveting any player more that Thomas in this class. That tops among all Big Ten defensive tackles and is the ninth-best in the conference overall. Arizona Cardinals 5-9-1 Average draft position: 8. This was originally a fourth round pick, but became a third-round pick because Johnson was on Houston's active roster for at least ten games in 2019. Los Angeles Chargers 5-10 Average draft position: 7. He has 152 carries 983 yards and 15 touchdowns. His size and athletic profile will allow him to play a variety of different roles in a defensive backfield. It's also a set of interviews. Over the course of the week, through observation, we have gathered a list of team-prospect meetings we know took place. Highsmith offers good quickness in short spaces and illustrates the necessary bend and tilt to corner and attack quarterbacks with effectiveness. Jeudy is the best route runner in this draft class and he'd make life immeasurably easier for Sam Darnold and Adam Gase. Thomas is the best left tackle in the class. His combination of speed and quickness is impressive, but Akers also shows some good power at the point of attack. The biggest area of his game he must improve is his ability to sustain and finish as a run blocker. I confirm that I have read to and agreed to the as well as the. Seattle traded a third-round selection, plus outside linebackers and to in exchange for defensive end. Houston traded Seattle's third-round selection to in exchange for Corner Back. Oakland Raiders 7-8 Average draft position: 14. He's powerful and explosive, but he knows how to disengage from contact and end up at the quarterback. For example, he has the size and skills to be an outstanding prospect, but lacks the speed. He did that this past season, and of all the safeties in Mobile next week, Burgess will immediately separate himself as the top man coverage defender of the group. All four of these guys will be vastly enriched in 2020, but will the Bucs be able to re-sign any of them? Last season we saw first-round selections in Chris Lindstrom, Garrett Bradbury, Andre Dillard and Tytus Howard from this very game a season ago. Akers gets to the hole quickly and shows great burst through the line of scrimmage. The good news is he'll only get better with experience. After a few days of practice, it isn't hard circling the best of the best. Jacob Eason, Washington 41 5. I think his development started two years ago at Alabama. That pick is projected to be No. The traded a conditional seventh-round selection to in exchange for guard. Thomas was a freshman All-American right tackle and then moved to left tackle the last two years where he dominated. The second he relaxes or steps, I just turn…boom, I get the ball. Becton plays with a nasty demeanor and has mobility I never expected to find. Epenesa is a disruptive force who can line up inside or on the edge, making him the kind of versatile prospect Arizona should be targeting. Terrell Lewis, Alabama 33 3. He'll bookend 2019 second-round pick Jawaan Taylor on the Jags' offensive line. If Akers continues to rush and lack the instincts to find the proper holes, his ability to make an impact at the next level is always going to be limited. Atlanta Falcons 6-9 Average draft position: 13. He'll have to prove it all over again, but he's a first-round quarterback heading into 2019. His physicality and length are the first standout attributes you notice in his film. Washington Redskins 3-12 Average draft position: 2. Chaisson needs to add weight but he plays much stronger than he looks and can be a constant threat in the backfield. The baseline traits to be a reliable starting-caliber option are there, but its early stages. His punches are devastating and he drives men against their will with ease in the run game. He then jumped out of the building with 11'2 broad jump and 37. Delpit had five interceptions and five sacks last season. He got benched in a national championship game in a 2017 season at Alabama when he completed 60. He is 6-foot-7, 370 pounds and takes up two full yards when in a two-point stance. Wanogho had aspirations of being a professional basketball player and Olympic swimmer but quickly realized both were unrealistic possibilities. Height: 5-foot-11 Weight: 212 pounds 2019 stats: 231 carries for 1,144 yards and 14 touchdowns on the ground. Unfortunately, Castonzo has hinted at possibly retiring, which could leave a formidable Colts offensive line without a blindside protector. Phillip Lindsay is the backfield playmaker, and Drew Lock is the quarterback who appears ready for the full-time job. As mentioned here many times, O-Line is the most glaring need and as a former O-Lineman himself, fans will hope Joe makes this area a priority. Davis has retained his quickness but increased his strength and anchoring ability against double-teams. He secures the catch well and gets upfield quickly, letting his physical tools take over from there. The 2019 college football season is finally underway and it is always interesting to monitor which prospects sink or swim with offseason hype. Denver Broncos 6-9 Average draft position: 12. But the Minnesota Vikings wide receiver has been on a wild ride to get to where he is today. They're drive killers, turnovers waiting to happen. Derrick Brown is just what the doctor ordered for a reeling Panthers' run defense. With Jabaal Sheard getting older, Kemoko Turay coming off of injury and Ben Banogu still unproven signing a player like Lawson would serve the Colts well. While it is almost certain that not every eligible player will declare for the draft, it is safe to assume that many will. At the moment, the Chargers definitely need one, and barring a trade-up, Oregon's strong-armed Justin Herbert is as good a bet as they'll find. After moving to the United States in 2014, he was accidentally introduced to football the following year. He is outstanding in space and is truly a fit for all schemes. While Tagovailoa is a pass-first pocket quarterback, his ability to slide around in the pocket allows him to avoid pressure, extend plays and find open throwing lanes. University of Nebraska journalism graduate. And just like Jackson snuck into the back end of the first round, Hurts seems like the type of prospect who could do the same, as the hype continues to grow. Despite not having Tagovailoa for three full games this season, Jeudy still has 71 receptions, 959 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. Pittsburgh traded a third-round selection along with 2019 first- and second-round selections to in exchange for Denver's 2019 first-round selection. His added arm length serves as an extra barrier between him and the opposition, which makes it very difficult to surpass and disrupt his rhythm. New Orleans Saints 12-3 Average draft position: 29. Winning with speed, power, good football intelligence and possessing the nuances of each of those positions. He also tends to be impatient behind the line of scrimmage, struggling to wait for his blockers to open up the hole before making his move. He has all the traits you look for in a first-round safety, but can he put it all together into a dominant week in Mobile? He was above the 90th percentile in both arm length and wingspan, and was above the 80th percentile in overall height and hand size. New York Jets 6-9 Average draft position: 9. After neglecting the Linebacker position since the Rolando McClain disappointment, taking Simmons gives the team a prospect who had 8 more sacks, 3 times the interceptions, and 3 more forced fumbles than the entire Raiders' unit in 2019. Looking to peter down, find the open windows. Arnette is suffocating with his ability to crowd routes and disrupt timing. If he can show scouts next week just that, his stock is going to rise even higher. Add in some savvy hand usage once he's engaged with blockers and it all adds up to a viable Day 2 prospect. Back in 2014, two players broke the century mark: Jimmy Garoppolo and John Brown. The traded their first-round selection as well as their first and fourth-round selections to in exchange for cornerback. But prior to his junior year, former Aggies head coach, Matt Wells, moved onto Texas Tech and Love's game suffered as a result. Brown is a rare athlete for his size, with the explosiveness and power to be a dominant force up front. Let's examine my top winners, losers and risers at the cornerback position from the event. Now comes the easy part, right? Third on that list: Explosive downfield threat Robby Anderson, who appears headed for free agency. His reach and movement skills make him an outstanding zone blocker in addition to his obvious ability to move bodies in power concepts. Okwara suffered a leg injury in November but he's an explosive threat off the edge who can still add weight to his frame. While Gordon may not have the moxy Minshew had, he has more arm strength and was another thrower who mastered Leach's air raid system. He converted to tight end after only seeing action in four games prior to his junior season, he bulked up and gained nearly 80 pounds to become one of the better players in program history. If you watch his best 10-15 reps, Holmes is clearly one of the best cornerbacks in this draft because of how naturally talented and athletic he is in man coverage. He also logged a highly impressive 6. Thomas is the best of a deep class, and would be an immediate upgrade for New York. They might just learn something that could be instrumental in making their draft picks successful at the highest level of football. Typically the cream of the crop is reserved for the annual Senior Bowl. Williams, Vernon Carey, and Vince Wilfork. Stuck on a porous New York Jets team, the Colts would be smart to front-load a large contract at Anderson in hopes of him leaving the Big Apple to chase a better environment. We've seen John Brown and Jimmy Garoppolo pass through in 2014 and guard Joe Thuney get called in the early third-round in 2017. And of course, his ridiculous length and functional strength increase his overall margin for error if his technique fails him. Various backgrounds, storylines, college tape, schematic usages, levels of competition and more make up an eclectic group of prospects whose success at the next level will be almost as dependent on the situation they end up in as their own skill sets. Garoppolo was a fairly straight forward call. The only question with Dugger is the level of competition. In each of the last three drafts, a top-100 pick has come from the Shrine Bowl roster. I also think CeeDee Lamb or Jerry Jeudy may be too good to pass up at 8. The production comes with few questions, and he should be the next solid Wisconsin running back at the next level. Seattle will receive the later of Kansas City's original selection or the selection Kansas City acquired from San Francisco see below. Getting outside of familiar confines could help him blossom and grow in order to reach those levels many think he's capable of sustaining over the long haul. Dillon, Boston College 24 4. Cincinnati Bengals 1-14 Average draft position: 1. At that size, you can not only expect him to be durable but can also match up against a variety of different receivers. With news of in Cleveland, it's clear that Jimmy Haslam wanted someone that could get this talented offense clicking on all cylinders. He has competition within the Big Ten that will push him, too. His footwork and decision making took a massive step back and there were other bad habits that were created. From wild sports to the next big thing, don't miss out. With inconsistent hands and less valuable than fellow teammate Jack Doyle, Ebron is an expendable piece that this new Colts team has no use for. We here at The Draft Network are here to help you navigate through this tough week. He will be the 39th Oregon player to appear in the Senior Bowl. He'll get picked on if he can't play in zone exclusively. Jabari Zuniga, Florida 42 5. This position is obviously the most important in sports and can make or break the tenure of many front offices. Alabama in the National Championship Game was another. However, after some success on the gridiron, he was beginning to get attention. This time around, it will be Alex Taylor. New Orleans traded a second-round selection to Miami in exchange for a 2019 second-round selection. The Eagles made McNabb the second overall pick in 1999 and he went on to have a career that saw him earn six Pro Bowl nods. These are widely expected to be 6th or 7th round picks. Just how many players from Alabama will hear their name called in Las Vegas in 2020? Size might be a question, but game-breaking ability won't be. Especially in the pre-season, these players will fluctuate up and down depending on performance in their final year of eligibility. Jacksonville Jaguars 5-10 Average draft position: 6. His weaknesses will be exposed against top competition. The current record was set in 2004 by the Ohio State Buckeyes, who had 14 players selected. Seattle traded a 2020 sixth-round selection to Jacksonville in exchange for a 2019 seventh-round selection. After games, players sign and exchange jerseys as a sign of respect. The dude is a certified man amongst boys! He is a tough runner who rarely goes down at first contact, showing impressive contact balance at all times. Before the Steelers' Week 15 victory, JuJu was tailgating with Steelers Nation. A hit on the position could set your team up with a quick turnaround due to the cheap contract throwers play on relative to the market value of the deals they will eventually sign. The combine revealed some good athletes at the position but they have questionable game film. But I think it started under Nick Saban at Alabama, and I think if you look at where Jalen is right now at Oklahoma, he could end up being a fourth- or fifth-round pick. A feature player that has an impact on the outcome of the game. I refuse to believe we are not going re-sign and Justin Murray. We had some incredible performances from all around the league, but also some terrible injuries. He returns to school after a season-ending ankle injury in 2018. Check out the full projection below updated Tuesday, after every Week 16 game : 1. Most notably, he suffered a dislocated hip this season that required surgery. The Virginia safety started off the day strong with a 44-inch vertical jump, and not long after that posted a crazy 11-foot, 9-inch broad jump to go along with it. For now, though, he makes too much sense for the Dolphins to pass him up. Noah Fant is the dynamic tight end entering Year 2. One trend that seems to hold true every year is that players pegged to be top draft picks in the summer get put under a microscope throughout the fall. Green Bay Packers 12-3 Average draft position: 28. Williams did check in at 6-foot-4 and 211 pounds, but the 4. He became more consistent with the timing and placement of his hands while taking full advantage of his length to play with extension and control blocks.。 。 。
