Tyler Vesely’s 2020 NFL Mock Draft

By: Tyler Vesely, TGIS Prez
 
Round 1

1. Cincinnati Bengals

Bengals

Pick: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU

The decision may have been a little more difficult if Tua was completely healthy. Regardless, Burrow has franchise QB potential and is one of my top rated QB prospects in the past ten years. Andy Dalton will more than likely be cut as he is scheduled to make $17 million in 2020. Meaning the 2020 season for the Bengals will be led right away by Burrow.

 

2. Washington Redskins

Redskins

Pick: Chase Young, DE, Ohio State

The Redskins should seriously consider Tua. While Young is a premier pass rusher and the best (non-QB) player in the draft, he won’t be able to elevate the franchise like Tua can. However, the mock draft is what I think the team will do. After spending a first rounder last year on Dwayne Haskins, they take Young and improve their defense.

3. Detroit Lions

Lions

Pick: Jeff Okudah, CB, Ohio State

The Lions lost both starting cornerbacks from last year in Darius Slay and Rashaan Melvin. Okudah is the best cover corner in the draft making this a perfect match for the Lions. A cornerback group of Desmond Trufant, Justin Coleman, and Jeff Okudah will do just fine.

4. New York Giants

Giants

Pick: Isaiah Simmons, OLB, Clemson

The Giants have a difficult decision to make.  They have a huge need at Offensive Tackle and there are four premier tackles available in this spot. Linebacker is also a need and someone with Simmons talent/versatility doesn’t come around often. While the Giants signed LB Blake Martinez, he is a liability in the passing game.  You know who isn’t a liability in pass coverage? Simmons. 

5. Miami Dolphins

Dolphins

Pick: Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama

This is the dream scenario for the Dolphins. However, in order to get Tua the Dolphins would most likely have to trade up with the Lions (I don’t do trade scenarios in Mock Drafts… too many variables). Anyway, Tua gives the Dolphins a franchise QB in an already impressive rebuild.

6. Los Angeles Chargers

Chargers

Pick: Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon

The Chargers filled needs in free agency with Bryan Bulaga (Tackle) and Chris Harris (CB). One glaring spot they haven’t filled has been QB. With Tyrod Taylor set to be the starter, there is not an immediate need for a rookie QB to come in and start. The Chargers go with Herbert as their future franchise QB.

7. Carolina Panthers

Panthers

Pick: Derrick Brown, DT, Auburn

The projected starting nose tackle in Carolina’s defense is currently between NFL journeymen Woodrow Hamilton and Zach Kerr… that is nowhere near good enough. Derrick Brown is a high motor guy who will start on the Panthers defense right away. 

8. Arizona Cardinals

Pick: Mekhi Becton, OT, LouisvilleCardinals

The Arizona Cardinals offensive line was just awful last year. Left Tackle D.J. Humphries signed a short term extension, but he isn’t the definite long-term solution. It is time for the Cardinals to start developing the future franchise left tackle. At 6’7″ 364 pounds, there is no one with more upside the Mekhi Becton.

9. Jacksonville Jaguars

Pick: Javon Kinlaw, DT, South Carolina

Jaguars

The Jaguars are in a total rebuild after being in the AFC Championship not too long ago. Jaguars can afford to take chances on high potential players. Kinlaw has more upside than Derrick Brown, but does not play as consistently. He fits a need for the Jaguars who have lost defensive linemen Marcell Dareus and Calais Campbell in the 2020 offseason. 

10. Cleveland Browns

Browns

Pick: Jedrick Willis Jr., OT, Alabama

The Browns solved one of their offensive tackle needs by signing right tackle Jack Conklin. On the other hand, the left tackle position  still remains an issue. Lucky for the Browns in this scenario there are three potential offensive tackles to chose from. Even though, Willis played right tackle at Alabama he shouldn’t have an issue switching to left with his athletic ability and elite feet in pass protection.

11. New York Jets

Jets

Pick: Tristan Wirfs, OT, Iowa

The Jets offensive line is atrocious. At all of five positions across the line they have bottom of the league starters. In the decision between Andrew Thomas and Tristan Wirfs it comes down to versatility. Wirfs has the capability to play tackle or guard and will finally give the Jets an offensive lineman they don’t have to be embarrassed about.

12. Las Vegas Raiders

Raiders

Pick: Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama

The Raiders roster is full of complimentary wide receivers: Tyrell WIlliams, Zay Jones, Nelson Agholor, and Hunter Renfrow. What they need is a premier number one. That is exactly what Jerry Jeudy could develop into. The decision will be between Jeudy, Lamb, and Ruggs.

13. San Fransisco 49ers

49ers

Pick: CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma

The 49ers lost Emmanuel Sanders to free agency and currently don’t have a legitimate number one wide receiver. CeeDee Lamb is an absolute playmaker that Kyle Shanahan will love in his offense. With very little holes on this 49ers team, they can afford a luxury pick.  

14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bucs

Pick: Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia

This is a fantastic scenario for the Bucs. Donovan Smith is a borderline starter at left tackle who Thomas can compete with. While he may not have the massive size of Becton or the athleticism of Wirfs, Andrew Thomas has all the tools to be a franchise left tackle The Bucs are going win-now after signing Brady, and Thomas would push Smith to be a starter year one.

15. Denver Broncos

Broncos

Pick: Henry Ruggs III, WR, Alabama

The Broncos only legitimate receiver on the roster is Courtland Sutton. Henry Ruggs is the kind of weapon the Broncos need and replaces the void left after the Emmanuel Sanders trade.

16. Atlanta Falcons

Falcons

Pick: C.J. Henderson, CB, Florida

The Falcons lost Desmond Trufant and have young corners Isaiah Oliver and Kendall Sheffield slated to start. C.J. Henderson provides an upgrade as one of the most athletically talented corners in the draft. If Henderson overcomes the concern in run support, he will be a starting NFL corner for sometime.

 

17. Dallas Cowboys

Cowboys

Pick: K’Lavon Chaisson, DE, LSU

The edge class is pretty slim as only Young and Chaisson are top half of the first round guys. Chaisson showed glimpses of elite potential down the stretch with 4.5 sacks in the last 4 games (and a play where he chased down CeeDee Lamb). The Cowboys need edge rushers and take a chance on Chaisson’s upside.

18. Miami Dolphins

Dolphins

Pick: Josh Jones, OT, Houston

Julien Davenport and Jesse Davis are slated to start at offensive tackle… which isn’t good. After the Dolphins went with Tua for their first pick, they need a tackle to keep him upright. Josh Jones is a top twenty player and one of the last tackles worthy of a first round pick. 

19. Las Vegas Raiders

Raiders

Pick: Kristian Fulton, CB, LSU

GM Mike Mayock loves physical, man-to-man cornerbacks. Fulton fits the mold and a need for a Raiders defense which gave up over 4100 yards in the air.

20. Jacksonville Jaguars

Jaguars

Pick: Jordan Love, QB, Utah State

Gardner Minshew and Joshua Dobbs are not long term options at quarterback. The Jaguars need a guy they can potentially develop into a franchise quarterback. Jordan Love has a big arm and potential, but also has accuracy and decision issues. With Gardner Minshew currently on the roster there is no pressure for Love to start and he can develop during the Jaguars rebuild.

 

21. Philadelphia Eagles

Eagles

Pick: Patrick Queen, OLB, LSU

The Eagles linebacking corp is full of inexperience and a major weakness on the defense. Queen would instantly be the best linebacker on the roster. Queen runs a 4.5 and is great in run support and pass coverage. 

 

22. Minnesota Vikings

Vikings

Pick: Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama

The Minnesota Vikings are actively shopping safety Anthony Harris with no potential replacement. Xavier McKinney would be a dynamic safety  for the Vikings to keep their defense from losing a step. Even if Harris is signed to a long-term deal, McKinney’s versatility would still make him an option to contribute.

23. New England Patriots

Patriots

Pick: Jacob Eason, QB, Washington

While a quarterback competition between between Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer sounds electric, the Patriots need another option. Jacob Eason is one of the most talented passers in the draft and has tremendous upside. After Tua and Burrow, I think he is the most likely to be a NFL starter five years from now.

24. New Orleans Saints

Saints

Pick: Kenneth Murray, ILB, Oklahoma

Veteran Saints linebacker A.J. Klein left in free agency and Kiko Alonso tore his ACL in the playoff game… so Linebacker is a pretty big hole on the Saints defense. Kenneth Murray can fix that. Murray is a sideline to sideline linebacker that can step in right away for the Saints.

25. Minnesota Vikings

Vikings

Pick: Justin Jefferson, WR, LSU

The Vikings received nice compensation for Stefon Diggs, but now they have to fill his role. Jefferson is similar to Diggs as a tall receiver with good route running ability. A combination of Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson would be nice.

26. Miami Dolphins

Dolphins

Pick: Antonio Winfield Jr., S, Minnesota

The first two Dolphins picks were offensive players… now time to address the defense. The current starting safeties are journeymen Eric Rowe and Adrian Colbert. Antonio Winfield is a smaller safety, but plays physical and has elite ballhawk ability. Head Coach Brian Flores will be able to utilize him in the Dolphins defense.

 

27. Seattle Seahawks

Seahawks

Pick: Yetur Gross-Matos, DE, Penn State

With the loss of Jadaveon Clowney, the Seahawks need edge rushing help. Gross-Matos was a high impact defensive player for Penn State with 17.5 sacks over the last two years. He fits the edge rushing role for Seattle.

28. Baltimore Ravens

Pick: Zach Baun, OLB, Wisconsin

Ravens

Baltimore is considering trading Matt Judon which makes Baun a good replacement option on the edge. The Wisconsin linebacker is versatile and fits today’s NFL with his pass coverage skills.

29. Tennessee Titans

Titans

Pick: Ezra Cleveland, OT, Boise State

Titans need interior  help at right tackle after losing Jack Conklin in free agency. Cleveland has future left tackle starting skills, but could compete for the right tackle spot left by Conklin right away. 

30. Green Bay Packers

Packers

Pick: Tee Higgins, WR, Clemson

The Packers have needed a number two wide receiver for a few years behind Davante Adams. Tee Higgins is a big wide receiver that has tremendous hands. He is a sneaky good route runner who will help the Packers offense right away.

31. San Fransisco 49ers

49ers

Pick: Ross Blacklock, DT, TCU

The 49ers traded away Deforest Buckner and need someone to replace him on the interior. Blacklock’s pass rushing ability adds to the best defensive line in football. (Bosa, Dee Ford, Arik Armstead, and Blacklock on third down sounds scary).

32. Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs

Pick: Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama

The issue for the Chiefs over the past few years is the defense, particularly the secondary. After losing Kendall Fuller, corner remains a high priority. Trevon Diggs has high upside as a long corner with great ball skills. (Bills play the Chiefs in 2020 giving us a matchup with his brother Stefon Diggs).

2020 TGIS NFL Draft Big Board

1. Joe Burrow, QB, LSU

One of the most talented passers to come out in the past few drafts. Burrow has the accuracy, decision making, arm strength and toughness to be a top 10 NFL QB. Burrow is a prospect where you have to take out the microscope to look for the negatives. During 2019 season, Auburn was the only team to slow him down. The 2020 NFL Draft is about Tua vs. Burrow which is closer than people think.

2. Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama

Tua throws with great anticipation and accuracy. His quick release and movement around the pocket makes him elite. Burrow and Tua are the best QB prospects to come out since Andrew Luck.

3. Chase Young, DE, Ohio State

Young is an elite pass rusher off the edge. While I don’t rank him as high as past edge rushers like Nick Bosa and Von Miller, he is just a notch below. Young will be a productive edge rusher in the league for awhile.

4. Isaiah Simmons, OLB, Clemson

Simmons is an athlete that can play just about anywhere on defense. While he isn’t always consistent every play, Simmons is an impact player with one of the highest ceilings out of anyone in the draft.

5. Jeff Okudah, CB, Ohio State

Okudah is an incredibly smooth cornerback. He also great man to man coverage guy and a day one starter.

6. Jedrick Willis Jr., OT, Alabama

Willis blocked for Tua’s blind side and only gave up one sack in his career at Alabama. Willis is a force in the run game as well.

7. Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia

While he doesn’t have the athleticism of Wirfs or the size of Becton, Thomas is just an overall great offensive tackle. The long-armed offensive lineman will play along time in the NFL.

8. Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon

While at times Herbert is inconsistent, he has all the tools you look for in a starting QB including an absolute cannon of an arm. Herbert has shown the ability to be an accurate passer including one of the best QB performances I’ve seen with his 2018 game against Stanford. Herbert needs to sure up the consistency in the NFL to become a starter.

9. Tristan Wirfs, OT, Iowa

A freak athlete on the offensive line that can play guard or tackle. He’s a plug and play kind’ve guy who should start next year.

10. Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama

Route running and quickness is where Jeudy wins. He has a unique ability to avoid defenders in the open field as well. Jeudy is an impact player right away.

11. Ceedee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma

Lamb has great hands and is tough to bring down after the catch. The Oklahoma WR plays with a mean streak and will come down with a lot of contested catches. Lamb won’t blow you away with speed,  but like Jeudy, he is a contributor right away.

12. Javon Kinlaw, DT, South Carolina

The decision between Kinlaw and Brown is tough, but I’m taking the upside. He doesn’t play with consistent effort. However, when he does decide to play it is a sight to see. The long, powerful DT is just at the beginning of his potential.

13. Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville

An absolute mammoth on the offensive Line at 6’7″ 364 lbs. Becton is not as polished as the other tackles, but he will absolutely blow defensive players away with his power. He’s the OT with the highest ceiling.

14. Henry Ruggs III, WR, Alabama

Ruggs plays with the Tyreek Hill type of speed. He is way more than just a speedster, though. Ruggs has phenomenal hands and gets constant separation. The team that drafts him gets an instant weapon.

15. Derrick Brown, DT, Auburn

An all-around great player that plays with a high motor. Brown seems to already reach his potential as good in the run game with some pass rush skills. He will be a starter in the league, but his ceiling is the question.

16. Kristian Fulton, CB, LSU

One of the best man coverage guys in the draft. Fulton doesn’t have elite quickness, but is physical and tough to separate from.

17. C.J Henderson, CB, Florida

So smooth. Henderson is one of the top athletes at corner in the draft and great in coverage. What keeps him this low is his lack of physicality in the run game.

18. K’Lavon Chaisson, DE, LSU

Chaisson flashes all the tools to be an elite edge rusher. While he only played two full seasons at LSU, he really put together some great games during their playoff run. Chaisson is a solid player with great upside.

19. Patrick Queen, OLB, LSU

Queen flies around the football field and was even physical enough to knock a few offensive lineman down. Queen also excels in pass coverage. Queen exhibits all the traits of a great first round linebacker.

20. Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama

A swiss army knife the can play all over. McKinney does well in man-to-man coverage, run defense, and as a zone safety. He is a great player with scheme versatility on defense.

21. Yetur Gross-Matos, DE, Penn State

Total playmaker on the defensive line. At Penn State he lined up inside and outside, but most likely projects as a DE in the NFL. Gross-Matos knows how to get to the quarterback too finishing with 9.5 sacks in 2019 with the Nittany Lions. At 6’5 266 pounds he is an instant impact guy with defensive line versatility at the next level.

22. Jacob Eason, QB, Washington

I love Eason as my QB4. He will throw some balls that will make you cringe on how off target they are. However, he makes some throws that will leave your mouth wide open. I think of Jacob Eason as a Josh Allen type… but better.

23. Josh Jones, OT, Houston

Very good tackle that showed out at the Senior Bowl. Jones is a good athlete, but not overpowering in the run game. He may not start right away, but projects as a starting Left Tackle down the line.

24. Tee Higgins, WR, Clemson

One of my favorite receivers in the draft, Higgins is just a baller. He doesn’t run the fastest 40 yard dash (4.54), but is quick with his routes, has strong hands, and wins jump balls. Higgins is a bigger wide receiver at 6’4″ 216 lbs who is absolutely worth a first round pick. He has some similarities to former Clemson wide receiver Deandre Hopkins.

25. Kenneth Murray, ILB, Oklahoma

Murray has elite closing speed and is a solid tackler. Murray can overrun some angles and get lost in plays, but he’s a fast linebacker that can compete to start right away.

Nick Radivoj’s 2020 NFL Mock Draft

By: Nick Radivoj, TGIS Contributor

Round 1
 

1. Cincinnati Bengals

Bengals

Pick: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU

The Andy Dalton days are over and a new era in Cincinnati begins. Joe Burrow brings his elite mental processing and competitiveness to the Bengals. Pairing Burrow with playmakers already in Cincinnati should give Coach Zac Taylor everything he needs to get this offense on track as long as they address OL throughout the rest of the weekend.

 

2. Washington Redskins

Redskins

Pick: Chase Young, EDGE, Ohio State

Chase Young is the best defensive if not overall prospect in this entire draft. Coming out of Ohio State, Young is as clean as a prospect as you can get – he can rush the passer, hold the edge against the run, and make plays trailing on the weak side. One of the Redskins stronger positions groups improves with this addition.

3. Detroit Lions

Lions

Pick: Jeff Okudah, CB, Ohio State

No more excuses for Matt Patricia as this is a make or break year. Although the Lions lost Darius Slay, they bring in Okudah who brings tremendous ability to play press man. Many say the draft starts with this pick as it is up for sale to the highest bidder between the Miami Dolphins and Los Angeles Chargers.

4. New York Giants

Giants

Pick: Jedrick Wills, OT, Alabama

Hopefully, Dave Gettleman breaks his trend of not drafting offensive tackles in round 1 as he needs to protect his franchise quarterback. Daniel Jones was often under duress in his rookie campaign but with the selection of Jedrick Wills his life may get a little easier. Wills brings the best pass sets from any prospect and has the versatility to play both the left and right side of the line since he played right tackle to protect Tua’s blind side at Alabama.

5. Miami Dolphins

Dolphins

Pick: Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama

The Dolphins have done a tremendous job in not showing their hand in which QB they want to come away with in this draft. I believe they are currently building this offense for Tua with Chan Gailey’s horizontal spread that can resemble action Tua saw at Alabama. Ryan Fitzpatrick can still lead this team in 2020 as Tua can take a redshirt year and build up some muscle, recover, and learn the offense.

6. Los Angeles Chargers

Chargers

Pick: Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon

Herbert brings his prototypical size and big arm out to LA. Since the organization is comfortable moving forward in 2020 with Tyrod Taylor as the starting quarterback, Herbert can come along slowly and develop. Herbert’s biggest strength is throwing down the field which will play well with Mike Williams, but he needs to work on pocket presence and short to intermediate accuracy.

7. Carolina Panthers

Panthers

Pick: Javon Kinlaw, IDL, South Carolina

If I were predicting trades in this draft this would be one of the easiest trade back candidates as the new regime under Rhule wants to pick up more draft capital for 2020 and 2021. Kinlaw brings raw untapped potential that Rhule will want to coach up to its ceiling. The Panthers fill one of their biggest needs in the middle of their defense as Kinlaw can create havoc up the middle and be a force in the run game.

8. Arizona Cardinals

Pick: Isaiah Simmons, LB, ClemsonCardinals

Often an offensive tackle is slated in here for this pick but too good of a player is sitting here for the Cardinals tacking. Simmons is an athletic freak that weights in at nearly 240 pounds and ran a 4.39 at the NFL Combine. Simmons has the ability to help in all 3 levels of the defense as he can rush the passer, play in coverage with tight ends, and even played single high occasionally at Clemson. With nearly the worst defense in the league this helps the Cardinals defense.

9. Jacksonville Jaguars

Pick: Derrick Brown, IDL, Auburn

Jaguars

Jaguars are slowly running out of good players as they said goodbye to 4 key players this season with Ngakoue heading out the door soon. Derrick Brown alleviates that a bit as he is a force up the middle, living in the backfield with tackles for loss.

10. Cleveland Browns

Browns

Pick: Tristan Wirfs, OT, Iowa

I want to start this off by saying the Browns are a prime trade down candidate in this spot. Coach Kevin Stefanski fills not one, but two offensive tackle spots this offseason as he pairs free agent signing Jack Conklin with Tristan Wirfs. Both tackles are athletic and can climb to the second level which will work wonders as Stefanski tries to implement his outside zone scheme. The additions the Browns have made this offseason look to make for a fun season in Cleveland.

11. New York Jets

Jets

Pick: Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville

The Jets walk away with this pick with a full smile on their face as they fill the biggest need they have in protecting Sam Darnold. Becton has the highest ceiling out of the OT prospects in this draft but should still make for a good rookie year as his size alone will make it nearly impossible for rushers to get around the edge. Sam Darnold can finally take a deep breath.  

12. Las Vegas Raiders

Raiders

Pick: CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma

Lamb brings his dog mentality as well as his insane YAC and contested catch ability to Las Vegas. Gruden finally gets the number one wide receiver he has been looking for. This addition makes it easier to move Williams back to a more natural Z spot. Suddenly the Raiders offense looks very potent with Lamb tagging along with Hunter Renfrow in the slot, second year running back Josh Jacobs, and break out gadget tight end Darren Waller.

13. San Fransisco 49ers

49ers

Pick: Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama

Jerry Jeudy is the most polished route runner in this draft and pairing him with an offensive mind like Kyle Shanahan should make for a fun year. Trading Buckner to acquire the 13th pick gives the 49ers the luxury to be able to add a talent like Jeudy. Jeudy will bring an infusion of talent to a relatively unknown wide receiver room besides Deebo Samuel.

14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bucs

Pick: Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia

The addition of Tom Brady changes everything for the Bucs as they are in win now mode. Andrew Thomas has the capability to play both sides of the line as he was a 3-year starter at Georgia in the SEC playing both right tackle and left tackle. As long as Tom Brady stays away from the proverbial cliff then the Bucs will be a force in the NFC.

15. Denver Broncos

Broncos

Pick: Henry Ruggs III, WR, Alabama

John Elway finally believes he has answered the QB question with Drew Lock. The addition of Ruggs will help space the field for Sutton and Fant underneath as he brings his 4.27 speed to the Mile-High City. Ruggs is blazing fast, but brings he can also run the full route tree. Drew Lock will have playmakers around him to help him succeed.

16. Atlanta Falcons

Falcons

Pick: CJ Henderson, CB, Florida

CJ Henderson contains the most potential and highest ceiling of any corner in this cycle. He’s a sticky defender but finds himself unwilling to provide support in the run game often. Dan Quinn needs to revamp this defense and with no current answer for corner on the roster, plugging in Henderson to the room will work out nicely.

 

17. Dallas Cowboys

Cowboys

Pick: K’Lavon Chaisson, EDGE, LSU

The loss of Robert Quinn this offseason will be felt if not for this pick. Chaisson can play opposite of D-Law and can play the run, rush the passer, and drop in coverage. Both Aldon Smith and Randy Gregory are applying for reinstatement, but shouldn’t be relied on as future starters. If Smith and Gregory do end up panning out, then Cowboys have exciting depth at the edge position.

18. Miami Dolphins

Dolphins

Pick: Josh Jones, OT, Houston

New coaching staff in Miami prides themselves on the ability to teach and develop players. With Jones, the Dolphins are getting a raw offensive tackle with plenty of upside. Consider this first round a success for the Dolphins walking out with their quarterback of the future and a bookend tackle. I consider drafting Jones this early a little bit of a reach, but must be done with the uncertainty he would be available when the Dolphins use their third first round pick at 26.

19. Las Vegas Raiders

Raiders

Pick: AJ Terrell, CB, Clemson

Mike Mayock loves shopping at the Clemson store of football players. Terrell brings good press man skills, but more importantly a championship pedigree to Las Vegas. The linebacker need was addressed during free agency leaving secondary as the Raider’s biggest need. Terrell and Mullens are paired up again a few years removed from being teammates in the Clemson secondary.

20. Jacksonville Jaguars

Jaguars

Pick: Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama

Xavier McKinney stepped up to the challenge of being the leader and field general of the Alabama defense after 2021 NFL Draft prospect Dylan Moses tore his ACL prior to the 2019 season. McKinney does not fit the Earl Thomas mold of playing single high safety, but is versatile to move in other defensive positions while bringing sure tackling. The Jaguars can revamp their defense and team with the capital they have in 2020 and 2021.

 

21. Philadelphia Eagles

Eagles

Pick: Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor

Carson Wentz finally gets an athletic and talented wide receiver to play with him. From the looks of it Alshon may not be on the Eagles in 2020 plus has his chemistry issues with Wentz. Mims brings deep speed ability demonstrated by running sub 4.4 at the NFL Combine. He has the ability to slide into a primary wide receiver role as Wentz has a nice wide receiver option to go with his two tight ends.

 

22. Minnesota Vikings

Vikings

Pick: Justin Jefferson, WR, LSU

Vikings lost Stefon Diggs this offseason, but received a pretty nice haul in return from the Buffalo Bills. In doing so they opened up a need at the wide receiver position and to fill that need we add Justin Jefferson. Jefferson put worries to rest about his long speed, as he ran in the 4.4’s at the NFL Combine. He is a great route runner similar to Diggs and will do great on timing routes with Kirk Cousins.

23. New England Patriots

Patriots

Pick: Cesar Ruiz, C, Michigan

Instead of losing Joe Thuney in free agency, the Patriots applied the Franchise Tag in order to have the opportunity to either negotiate a long term agreement or sell him to the highest bidder. Nevertheless, the Patriots go into 2020 with 3 question marks in the middle of their offensive line as Joe Thuney could be a trade piece, David Andrews has health concerns, and Shaq Mason had a down season. Cesar Ruiz can bolster the unit up front and play any of the 3 interior offensive line positions.

24. New Orleans Saints

Saints

Pick: Patrick Queen, LB, LSU

The Saints have the luxury with coming into the draft with no glaring needs at any position on their roster. With no major needs, they have the luxury to add and keep LSU standout linebacker in the state of Louisiana. They can worry about replacing Drew Brees later as the Saints are in win now mode.

25. Minnesota Vikings

Vikings

Pick: Kristian Fulton, CB, LSU

Vikings go to Baton Rouge for both of their first round picks. Xavier Rhodes, Trae Waynes, and Mackensie Alexander are all gone after leaving the team in free agency. Currently the Vikings have Mike Hughes and a whole lot of question marks for their corners. Fulton is a bit of a different mold than most Mike Zimmer corners but perhaps a change of philosophy is in order. Fulton brings more fluidity and looser hips and can man one of the boundary corner spots as he excels in press man but can also play off man and zone.

26. Miami Dolphins

Dolphins

Pick: Grant Delpit, S, LSU

If Flores buys into the fact the tackling issues were created by injuries Delpit was suffering from in the 2019 season, then this can turn out to be a homerun pick as the last missing piece for the Dolphins secondary. Delpit brings range and the ability to play single high safety allowing Flores the ability to manufacture pressure by blitzing. Bobby McCain can slide back into a more natural position as the nickel corner and line Byron Jones and Xavien Howard on the outside. This secondary could end up haunting opposing quarterbacks.

 

27. Seattle Seahawks

Seahawks

Pick: Yetur Gross-Matos, EDGE, Penn State

This pick comes contingent with the looming loss of Jadeveon Clowney on the team. Gross-Matos flashed special plays all throughout his junior season at Penn State and brings a nice mold into Seattle. He looks to play well versus the run as he has vines for arms and will continue to grow and develop his pass rushing prowess.

28. Baltimore Ravens

Pick: Kenneth Murray, LB, Oklahoma

Ravens

Kenneth Murray is not the cleanest linebacker prospect all around as he still has plenty to learn and grow in his coverage skills. He is a sideline to sideline athlete who can make plays all over the field. Defensive Coordinator Wink Martindale will love Murray’s pass rushing skills from the linebacker position as he prefers an aggressive blitzing philosophy.

29. Tennessee Titans

Titans

Pick: Isaiah Wilson, OT, Georgia

Titans need to stick to their identity and what helped them go on their run towards the end of last season. Adding Wilson will help ease the loss of Jack Conklin this offseason in free agency as the Titans look to continue to run behind their offensive line with Derrick Henry. Wilson needs a lot of development, but can mow people over in the run game when asked to do so.

30. Green Bay Packers

Packers

Pick: Jalen Reagor, WR, TCU

The jump in quarterback play can’t get much better for Reagor as he goes from a stable of quarterbacks at TCU to one of the game’s best throwers. Packers need to provide Aaron Rodgers with some weapons as the game plan isn’t hard to figure out when Devante Adams is his only target. Reagor brings shiftiness and explosion to Green Bay as they go away from their mold of bigger bodied and stiffer wide receivers.

31. San Fransisco 49ers

49ers

Pick: Jeff Gladney, CB, TCU

49ers fill the question mark of who will play opposite of Richard Sherman. Gladney is not the youngest of prospects as he will be 24 during this upcoming season, but provides coverage ability and willingness to tackle in the run game. 49ers should be high on the fact Sherman can take Gladney under his wing and help him prosper into his eventual heir in San Francisco.

32. Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs

Pick: Damon Arnette, CB, Ohio State

Arnette provides the Chiefs with a cornerback that is a day one starter. While Arnette is an immediate starter, there are questions how high his ceiling is. Regardless, the Chiefs are in win-now mode for more championships and aren’t looking for a prospect to nurture.

2020 College Football Way-Too-Early Top Teams

1. Clemsonorange

Clemson will have to replace most of the offensive line, Tee Higgins, Amari Rodgers, and Travis Etienne. But with Trevor Lawrence, Justyn Ross, and a deep WR core they should be fine. The defense was semi-young this year and return a lot of starters. Clemson will be dangerous again in 2020.

2. Ohio Stateohio state

The offense should be the best in the Big Ten again with Justin Fields and most of the offensive line back. WR Garrett Wilson is coming off a great freshman season and will be the number 1 target. The question will be on defense where they replace many talented starters including Chase Young and Jeffrey Okudah.

3. AlabamaAlabama logo

Tua is gone, but the combination of Mac Jones and Bryce Young keeps the quarterback position a strength. The offense will stay a strength, but can the 2019 defense improve? The youth last year will have an extra year of maturity and their defensive MVP Dylan Moses will actually play in 2020. The dynasty isn’t over…

4. LSULSU Tigers

The champions return most of their defense including star CB Derek Stingley. The offense also has plenty of weapons with Biletnikoff winner WR Ja’Marr Chase and Terrance Marshall. However, Myles Brennan is not Joe Burrow and a run like 2019 is not likely.

5. Oregon1238px-Oregon_Ducks_logo.svg

They lose Justin Herbert and most of their offensive line. However,  rumors are going around Eugene that there won’t be much of a drop off to new starting QB Tyler Shough. The defense will continue to be solid especially with how Oregon has been recruiting. They’ll compete for the Pac-12 and the defense will keep them in the playoff conversation again.

6. Georgia

Georgia Logo

A boatload of defensive returning talented players come back next year for Georgia. But Georgia has to replace four offensive lineman to a struggling offense. The offense may be getting an upgrade with Wake Forest graduate transfer QB Jamie Newman as the probable starter. The defense is talented, but without the offense improving playoffs are out of the question.

Florida logo

7. Florida

QB Kyle Trask and almost the entire defensive secondary returns after two straight 10+ win seasons. Dan Mullen has something going on there and should compete with Georgia for the SEC East.

8. Penn Statepenn_state_nittany_lions_2005-pres

The entire offense comes back and the defense returns their MVP LB Micah Parsons. If the Nittany Lions plug and play some new quality starters on defense, the playoffs is not out of the question. QB Sean Clifford will need to step up his play in order to achieve this top ten ranking.

9. Wisconsin2000px-Wisconsin_Badgers_logo.svg

The Badgers return several quality starters on each side of the ball, but lose their MVP in RB Jonathan Taylor. If they can find a substitute to the impact of Taylor a Big Ten Championship isn’t out of the question.

10. Oklahoma

OU

The Oklahoma defense went from terrible to average in 2019. The defense was actually pretty young so a jump to an above average defense is possible. No LB Kenneth Murray, NT Neville Gallimore, or CB Parnell Motley will make an impact. The offense is also a question mark. The entire offensive line is back, but they lose their two playmakers Jalen Hurns and CeeDee Lamb. It’ll be the start of the QB Spencer Rattler era, but many questions remain with the 2020 Sooners.

11. Texas A&MTexas A&M Logo

Year 3 of the Jimbo Fisher era at Texas A&M and this team looks promising. Sure the team returns their starting QB Kellen Mond and four out of the five starters on the offensive line. But where the promise lies is in the young, talented defense that returns nine starters. A&M will be a tough opponent in the SEC in 2020.

12. Oklahoma StateOSU Logo

QB Spencer Sanders, WR Tylan Wallace, and RB Chuba Hubbard are all back on offense. The 82nd ranked defense only loses one starter and will most certainly improve. The Cowboys are a sleeper for the Big 12 Championship in 2020.

13. AuburnAuburn Tigers Logo

The offensive line and defensive line will be hit hard by graduating senior departures. Add in the question of does Bo Nix take a leap in performance from his average Freshman year. The offense does have skill position weapons, but the defense declining has Auburn outside the top ten.

14. Michigan1280px-Michigan_Wolverines_logo.svg

Michigan loses their quarterback and four offensive lineman to an offense that mostly struggled in 2019. WR Nico Collins and WR Ronnie Bell are the few bright spots to the start of the QB Dylan McCaffrey era. The defense gets a few key pieces back including DE Kwity Paye and S Dax Hill… but lose other key starters mostly in the secondary. Overall, the team isn’t as strong as 2019.

15. Notre DameNotre Dame

QB Trevor Book and the top two linebackers back is a major plus for the Fighting Irish. The negatives? They lose their entire secondary and their top skill position player returning is Braden Lenzy… who had a total of 254 yards.

Why Tua Could Return to Alabama

Tua Tagovailoa could actually be coming back? Many have scoffed at the idea including Joseph Goodman from AL.com. Goodman asks the question, why would Tua come back? He even admits he is having a hard time thinking of any reasons he should come back and alleges that if you hope he comes back to Alabama you are SELFISH.

So let’s help Goodman out with why it makes sense for Tua to comeback:

  1. Financial Gain

“Tua will make millions if he goes to the NFL next year.” Yes, that is true. But to really understand what is to gain, it has to start with analyzing the projected earnings of the total contract for first round picks (Forbes.com):

#1 Pick: $35.2 Million ($21 Million Signing Bonus)
#2 Pick: $33.6 Million
#3 Pick: $32.6 Million
#4 Pick: $31.4 Million
#5 Pick: $29.3 Million

#10 Pick: $18.9 Million ($10 Million Signing Bonus)
#15 Pick: $14.9 Million
#20 Pick: $12.6 Million
#25 Pick: $11.8 Million
#30 Pick: $10.5 Million

The difference  between being a top five pick and falling out of the top ten is about double the contract value. Right now with Tua’s hip injury he isn’t guaranteed to be in the top five. Rather, if he came back for his senior season and proved he was healthy, he would solidify top five contract status. The difference? At least $15 million dollars including $10 million just in signing bonus. Going back to school to be a top five pick is worth it especially considering the NFL first round contract is for four years with a fifth year option.

But what about his injury status?

  1. Recovery Time from his Injury

Tua right now is on crutches and can’t stand for an extended period of time due to his hip injury. His timeline for his injury recovery looks like this:

Late February 2020: Resumes athletic activity
Spring 2020: Can start throwing again
April 23, 2020: NFL Draft
May-July 2020: Fully Healthy

There is a possibility Tua will not be cleared to throw before the NFL Draft requiring teams to chance a draft pick that he will be 100% back to normal. A risky move for an NFL team especially at the top of the first round. Tua will also not be fully healthy while NFL teams do their extensive physicals and examinations of him. Wouldn’t it be prudent to fully recover a hip injury without having countless examinations on you? But again he could get hurt playing College Football in 2020.

So what happens if he gets hurt?

  1. Protected by Insurance

Part of the reason Alabama LB Dylan Moses came back was due to insurance coverage if he drops in value. Tua could do something similar so he is further protected if his stock drops due to injury or loss of value. A max of $10 million insurance policy is allowed by the NCAA and will offer a safety net due to the unexpected. Given his top fifteen NFL draft projection by the NFL Advisory Committee, the payout will be large. Plus Nick Saban is an insurance expert.

  1. National Championship and Legacy of an All-Time great

Peyton Manning came back for his senior season. The entire Clemson defensive line came back for their senior seasons despite being projected first round picks. Sometimes guys just love playing for their school and finishing out on a high note.

Not only that… Tua hasn’t won a Heisman despite being one of the all-time great college quarterbacks. He would have a chance to break the SEC passing touchdowns record and the NCAA Career Passer Rating Record. But most importantly… he’d have the chance to win another National Championship. After a 10-2, injury plagued year and Coach Orgeron saying “Roll Tide, What? F**K YOU!” Tua and Alabama could be heading for a 2020 revenge tour.

Tua’s Decision

Tua will decide what is best for Tua. But saying there is “no reason to comeback” is flat out wrong. There are risks to coming back and risks to declaring. No matter what he chooses, it is clear Alabama nation will support him despite how selfish Goodman thinks the Crimson Tide fan base is. Until then, we will wait and get teased by Tua’s Instagram.

TGIS Bowl Picks

2019 SEASON RECORD: 91-75-1 (54.8%)

COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFFS – December 28th

Peach Bowl
Orlando, FL
#1 LSU (-13.5) vs. #4 Oklahoma UNDER 76- 3:00pm

Game Preview: LSU’s offense is rolling with Joe Burrow (Bureaux). While the Oklahoma’s defense is improved it is nowhere near ready for LSU. LSU’s defense has also been much better giving up on average 12.3 points in their last three games. The Oklahoma offense will not be able to keep up. LSU to the Championship

Pick: LSU 45-24

Fiesta Bowl
Orlando, FL
#2 Ohio State vs. #3 Clemson (-2)- 7:00pm

Game Preview: The best game of bowl season. Ever since Clemson had their scare against North Carolina, they have been unstoppable. Ohio State will be by far their toughest opponent though. Both defenses are good, but not elite. This will come down to the offenses. Trevor Lawrence, Travis Etienne, Justyn Ross, and Tee Higgins are too dangerous and will lead Clemson to the championship.

Pick: Clemson 34-20

BOWL PICKS (All Times CST)

December 20

Bahamas Bowl
Nassau, Bahamas
Buffalo (-6.5) vs. Charlotte – 1:00pm

Buffalo is one of the most up and down teams. However, when they are on they put up a ton of points. They’ll turn it up for the Bahamas.

Frisco Bowl
Frisco, TX
Kent State vs. Utah State (-7.5)- 6:30pm

The last game for Utah State QB Jordan Love. He’ll put on a show despite being cited for marijuana possession earlier this week.

December 21

New Mexico Bowl
Albuquerque, NM
Central Michigan vs. San Diego (-3.5)- 1:00pm

San Diego State is a very good Mountain West team finishing the year at 9-3. Central Michigan on the other hand played well in MACtion, but the MAC isn’t a strong conference. Aztecs win by double digits.

Cure Bowl
Orlando, FL
Liberty vs. Georgia Southern (-5)- 1:30pm

Liberty may be the worst bowl team out there. They played a weak schedule including New Mexico State twice. Georgia Southern wins.

Boca Raton Bowl
Boca Raton, FL
FAU vs. SMU (-3) OVER 69.5- 2:30pm

No Lane Kiffin will have an impact. SMU has slumped down the stretch, but they’re still a good team. Expect a high scoring game.

Camellia Bowl
Montgomery, AL
Arkansas State vs. Florida International (+2.5)- 4:30pm

Butch Davis got his team pumped up enough to beat Miami, he is good enough to get them motivated to beat Arkansas State in a bowl game

Las Vegas Bowl
Las Vegas, NV
#19 Boise State vs. Washington (-3.5)- 6:30pm

Chris Petersen’s last game as a coach for the Huskies against his former team. Boise State has played some close games with below average opponents. Washington wins with their talent.

New Orleans Bowl
New Orleans, LA
#20 Appalachian State (-16) vs. UAB- 8:00pm

UAB played a weak non-conference and got destroyed by FAU. Appalachian State wins big.

December 23

Gasparilla Bowl
Tampa, FL
Marshall (+18) vs. UCF- 1:30pm

From a New Years Six bowl to the Gasparilla Bowl. UCF wins, but doesn’t blow out a decent Marshall team.

December 24

Hawaii Bowl
Honolulu, HI
BYU (-1.5) vs. Hawaii- 7:00pm

The Hawaii bowl is back on Christmas Eve! BYU is the better team and wins on the island.

December 26

Independence Bowl
Shreveport, LA
Louisiana Tech vs. Miami (-6.5)- 3:00pm

Miami already has some players sitting out and ended the season terribly. But less than a touchdown favorite against Louisiana Tech? I’m not going that far.

Quick Lane Bowl
Detroit, MI
Eastern Michigan vs. Pittsburgh (-11)- 7:00pm

Eastern Michigan finished last in the MAC West and is somehow faced against one of the better ACC teams… Pitt wins big.

December 27

Millitary Bowl
Annapolis, MD
North Carolina (-4.5) vs. Temple – 11:00am

North Carolina will be excited to be there in Mack Brown’s first year. They seem to be going the right direction following their 41-10 win over NC State. Tar Heels by a touchdown

Pinstripe Bowl
New York, NY
Michigan State vs. Wake Forest (+4.5)- 2:20pm

Two very average football teams who didn’t finish the season great. I’d take Wake Forest and the points.

Texas Bowl
Houston, TX
#25 Oklahoma State vs. Texas A&M (-7)- 5:45pm

Oklahoma State is not the same without Spencer Sanders. A&M can minimize Chuba Hubbard and finally get their quality win.

Holiday Bowl
San Diego, CA
#16 Iowa vs. #22 USC (+2)- 7:00pm

Iowa finished the season struggling against Nebraska and Illinois. USC meanwhile posted an average of 46.5 points in their last two games. I’m going with the hot team and emerging USC QB Kedon Slovis.

Cheez-It Bowl
Phoenix, AZ
Air Force vs. Washington State (+3)- 9:15pm

Air Force lost twice this year to Boise State and Navy. They haven’t seen an offense like the Cougars yet though. Washington State QB Anthony Gordon plays great in his last game as a Coug.

December 28

Camping World Bowl
Orlando, FL
#15 Notre Dame (-3) vs. Iowa State- 11:00am

Notre Dame’s offense has been rolling, but they face a tougher Iowa State defense. I don’t trust Iowa State’s offense against the Notre Dame defense though. Fighting Irish win by double digits.

Cotton Bowl Classic
Arlington, TX
#10 Penn State vs. #17 Memphis (+6.5)- 11:00am

There’s a lot going on in this game. Memphis coach Mike Norvell isn’t coaching and they face a tough Penn State defense. But I don’t really trust the Penn State offense or Memphis defense. I have no idea what will happen so I’m just going to take the points and the team more motivated to play in this game. At least I’m honest with you guys.

December 30

First Responder Bowl
Dallas, TX
Western Kentucky (-2.5) vs. Western Michigan- 11:30am

Western Kentucky have played good football down the stretch including beating Arkansas 45-19. Western Kentucky also has played the better schedule. Really like the Hilltoppers here.

Music City Bowl
Nashville, TN
Louisville vs. Mississippi State (-4.5)- 3:00pm

Louisville couldn’t handle Kentucky’s run game… no idea how they are going to stop Mississippi State. Bulldogs win without the Cowbells.

Redbox Bowl
Santa Clara, CA
California vs. Illinois (+6.5)- 3:00pm

I have no idea what to expect from Illinois. They are good enough to beat Wisconsin, but can be bad enough to lose to Northwestern. It will be a low scoring affair though so take Illinois with the points and just hold on.

Orange Bowl
Miami Gardens, FL
#9 Florida (-14.5) vs. #24 Virginia- 7:00pm

Virginia’s offensive line is bad. Florida’s defensive line is really good. Expect a blow out in the Orange Bowl.

December 31

Belk Bowl
Charlotte, NC
Kentucky vs. Virginia Tech (-3)- 11:00am

Kentucky’s offense the second half of the season has been to run the ball with Lynn Bowden. Virginia Tech’s Defensive Coordinator Bud Foster coaches his last game and should be able to figure out a plan to stop him. Hokies win a close one.

Sun Bowl
El Paso, TX
Arizona State (-5.5) vs. Florida State – 1:00pm

All season we’ve trusted Herm Edwards… why stop now. QB Jayden Daniels is a special freshman and RB Eno Benjamin plays in his last game. Florida State’s best player RB Cam Akers is also skipping. Sun Devils win big.

Liberty Bowl
Memphis, TN
Kansas State vs. Navy (+1) UNDER 52- 2:45pm

If you love QBs throwing it all over the field… this game is not for you. Expect Run, run, run, and more run plays. Navy runs the ball better and wins.

Arizona Bowl
Tuscon, AZ
Georgia State vs. Wyoming (-7)- 3:30pm

Trust a good team in the Mountain West over an average Sun Belt team.

Alamo Bowl
San Antonio, TX
#11 Utah (-7) vs. Texas – 6:30pm

Utah’s run game is going to give the Texas defense trouble. Their defensive line should also not make it easy on Sam Ehlinger. Texas may be able to keep it close, but I don’t see them winning. Utah by 9.

January 1

Citrus Bowl
Orlando, FL
#13 Alabama (-7) vs. #14 Michigan OVER 59- Noon

Alabama has basically their entire team playing. Mac Jones and the Bama offense should outscore Michigan by a decent margin and try to make a statement. Alabama 41-24.

Outback Bowl
Tampa, FL
#12 Auburn (-7) vs. #18 Minnesota- Noon

Minnesota’s top linebacker is sitting out the bowl game. The Tigers will be by far the toughest defense the Golden Gophers face. Auburn wins by double digits.

Rose Bowl
Pasadena, CA
#6 Oregon (+3) vs. #8 Wisconsin – 4:00pm

Oregon’s the better football team and can minimize RB Johnathan Taylor’s impact on the game. It should be close, but Oregon wins.

Sugar Bowl
Pasadena, CA
#5 Georgia (-6.5) vs. #7 Baylor UNDER 41 – 7:45pm

Expect very little scoring. Georgia’s left tackle is sitting out the game and their right tackle might be also. Their offense has not been great and Baylor’s defense isn’t bad. Still the Georgia defense will give Baylor more problems. 24-10 Georgia.

January 2

Birmingham Bowl
Birmingham, AL
#21 Cincinnati (-7) vs. Boston College UNDER 55 – 4:00pm

With no AJ Dillon and an interim coach I don’t see Boston College being able to do much. Like the UNDER.

Gator Bowl
Jacksonville, FL
Indiana vs. Tennessee (-1.5)- 6:00pm

Tennessee have won it’s last five… Indiana has lost two of its last three. Tennessee wins and this line is too easy.

January 3

Famous Idaho Bowl
Boise, ID
Nevada (+7.5) vs. Ohio – 2:30pm

I’m taking Nevada that beat a good San Diego State team. Ohio has been blowing out MAC teams, but Nevada should at least cover.

January 4

Armed Forces Bowl
Fort Worth, TX
Southern Miss (+7) vs. Tulane – 11:30am

Tulane has QB Justin McMillan who is up and down. Southern Miss is talented enough to keep this game close.

January 6

Lending Tree Bowl
Mobile, AL
Louisiana-Lafayette vs. Miami (Ohio) (+14)- 6:30pm

The MAC Champs can keep it within 14.

Week 14 College Football Preview

2019 SEASON RECORD: 87-67-1 (56.5%)

Week 14 Games of the Week

#10 Michigan (+8.5) at #1 Ohio State – Saturday 11:00am

Game Preview: THE GAME. Michigan hasn’t beat Ohio State since 2011. Michigan comes into this game hot winning their last four games by over 24 points. Ohio State had their first challenge last week against Penn State. They get challenged again against Michigan and win a close one.

Pick: Ohio State 31-24

#5 Alabama (-3.5) at #16 Auburn – Saturday 2:30pm

Game Preview: I trust Mac Jones over Bo Nix. Auburn will be much tougher than Arkansas and Western Carolina however. If Alabama keeps the Auburn offense in check they should win by double digits.

Pick: Alabama 34-20

Top Picks of the Week (All Times CST)

Texas Tech (+10) at Texas UNDER 65– Friday 11:00am

Texas Tech hasn’t lost a game by more than 3 points since Mid-October. Texas hasn’t beat a team by more than 3 points since October 5th. This game will be close and low scoring.

Virginia Tech (-2.5) at Virginia– Friday 11:00am

Virginia Tech has played great down the stretch. They’ll win and head to the ACC Championship to play Clemson.

Cincinnati (+11.5) at Memphis – Friday 2:30pm

The spread is too big for two similar AAC teams. This should be a great game.

South Florida (+23.5) at UCF – Saturday 8:00pm

All year UCF has proven to be an adequate team that doesn’t blow anybody out. South Florida covers.

Wake Forest (-3.5) at Syracuse – Saturday 11:30am

Reading the ACC is tough, but I know this much… Syracuse is awful. Take Wake.

#12 Wisconsin (-2.5) at #8 Minnesota UNDER 48.5 – Saturday 2:30pm

The battle for Paul Bunyan’s Axe. The weather in this game will be cold with cross winds so don’t expect a lot of points. Wisconsin hasn’t been great the last few weeks, but neither has Minnesota. Wisconsin wins.

Texas A&M (+17) at #2 LSU – Saturday 6:00pm

LSU’s defense has not been great. Kellen Mond will be able to put up points and keep the game close.

#7 Oklahoma at #21 Oklahoma State (+12) – Saturday 7:00pm

Oklahoma hasn’t beat a team by double digits the last four games. I don’t expect them to do it in an away rivalry game. Oklahoma State may pull the upset so definitely a money line sprinkle opportunity.
