Nick Radivoj’s 2020 NFL Mock Draft

By: Nick Radivoj, TGIS Contributor

Round 1

1. Cincinnati 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


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


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


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


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


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


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 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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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.

2019 NFL Mock Draft 1.0

Round 1
1 Cardinals Quinnen Williams DT Alabama 6’3″ 295
 The decision is going to come down to Williams or Bosa. I haven’t seen a DT wreck an offensive game plan since Aaron Donald at Pitt.
2 Nick Bosa DE Ohio St. 6’3″ 270
 49ers are in a good position for a quality player. Nick Bosa has rare pass rush ability and is possibly a better prospect than his brother Joey.
3 Jets Ed Oliver DT Houston 6’2″ 290
New DC is Gregg Williams who runs a 4-3 defense. Ed Oliver has rare movement skills for a defensive lineman and fits the system.
4 Raiders Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson 6’5″ 265
 The Raiders need pass rushers since trading Khalil Mack. They get a good one with Clelin Ferrell.
5 Bucs Jeffery Simmons DT Mississippi St, 6’3″ 301
Simmons is another rare talent on the defensive line in this draft. The Bucs could part ways with Gerald McCoy and this would be a great fit.
6 Giants Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio St. 6’2″ 225
 The Giants don’t have a longterm solution at QB when Eli Manning departs. Dwayne Haskins is the top QB in the draft and the Giants may need to move up to secure their selection.
7 Bucs Jonah Williams OT Alabama 6’5″ 301
Jonah is going to be a solid starter in the NFL. Whether that will be at tackle or guard is the question. I think he solidifies the offensive line with Cam Robinson at LT and Jonah at RT.
8 Lions Josh Allen OLB Kentucky 6’4″ 240
Josh Allen had a fantastic senior season and could replace Ezekiel Ansah if he were to leave in free agency.
9 Bills Cody Ford OT Oklahoma 6’4″ 338
Ford is a massive offensive lineman with good movement skills. He would be a great piece to a Bills line that needs an upgrade.
10 Broncos Jachai Polite DE Florida 6’2″ 242
Yes they took Bradley Chubb last year and have Von Miller on the opposite side. But you can never have enough pass rushers. Polite is a high energy pass rusher that can give the Broncos another threat to get to the quarterback.
11 Bengals Devin White ILB LSU 6’0″ 240
The Bengals need a linebacker upgrade and can’t count on Burfict. Devin White fills in as the rangy tackling linebacker.
12 Packers Deionte Thompson S Alabama 6’2″ 196
Green Bay traded away one Alabama safety. Tramon Williams at FS is not a longterm solution and Deionte Thompson fills in as a ballhawking safety that can tackle.
13 Dolphins Dexter Lawrence DT Clemson 6’3″ 340
Dolphins need an upgrade to the defensive line. Lawrence is a space eating DT that can help.
14 Falcons Rashan Gary DE Michigan 6’4″ 281
Rashan Gary and the Falcons are a perfect match. The Falcons like pass rushing interior defensive lineman and Gary could kick inside and fill that mold.
15 Redskins Marquise Brown WR Oklahoma 5’10” 168
The Redskins need a playmaker for the offense. Marquise Brown is a speedster that could have a Tyreek Hill impact.
16 Panthers Jawaan Taylor OT Florida 6’5″ 328
The offensive line has to get better. Jawaan Taylor is a raw offensive tackle prospect that could be a major piece for the Panthers for the foreseeable future.
17 Browns Greedy Williams CB LSU 6’1″ 185
 They nailed the Denzel Ward pick last year and now need another starting cornerback. Greedy Williams has all the makings of a NFL corner.
18 Vikings Greg Little OT Ole Miss 6’5″ 325
The Vikings must help Kirk Cousins out with an offensive line. Greg Little has the making of a future starter at left tackle.
19 Titans Byron Murphy CB Washington  6’0″ 175
Murphy is a physical corner and one of my favorite players in the draft. The Titans continue to have a weak secondary where the Murphy pick makes a lot of sense.
20 Steelers Deandre Baker CB Georgia 5’11” 207
The Steelers have a lot of issues especially with Antonio Brown demanding a trade. The secondary remains a top issue that Deandre Baker can help solve.
21 Seahawks Brian Burns DE Florida St. 6’4″ 230
Their top pass rusher Frank Clark could leave in free agency. Even if they keep Clark, Burns would be an excellent addition to the pass rush.
22 Ravens D.K. Metcalf WR Ole Miss 6’3″ 225
 Lamar is going to be the starter and needs help at receiver. Metcalf gives him a big, fast target.
23 Houston Texans T.J. Hockenson TE Iowa 6’4″ 250
The Texans don’t have a stud at TE. Hockenson can both block and is an excellent receiver. Hockenson gives Deshaun Watson a weapon at tight end.
24 Raiders Devin Bush OLB Michigan 5’11” 232
The Raiders need playmakers. Mayock and Gruden are going to love Bush as he is all over the football field despite being shorter.
25 Eagles Josh Jacobs RB Alabama 5’9″ 220
They have Ajayi, Jacobs gives them a receiving threat out of the backfield. He is also a very tough runner and would be a great addition to the Eagles offense.
26 Saints Christian Wilkins DT Clemson 6’4″ 310
The Colts had a tremendous improvement on defense. Wilkins has rare movement skills on the defensive line that fits the Colts system.
27 Raiders N’Keal Harry WR Arizona St. 6’3″ 220
Jared Cook led the Raiders in receiving. Harry gives them an option to potentially be a number one receiving threat.
28 Chargers Dre’Mont Jones DT Ohio St. 6’3″ 295
The Patriots ran all over the Chargers. They need to upgrade the interior of the defensive line.
29 Chiefs Trayvon Mullen CB Clemson 6’1″ 190
The Chiefs had a great season despite the not so great secondary. Mullens is a start for the defense to match the offensive production.
30 Packers Montez Sweat DE Mississippi St. 6’5″ 241
Nick Perry had a disappointing season and Clay Matthews is not Clay anymore. The Packers need an edge rusher.
31 Rams Mack Wilson ILB Alabama 6’1″ 231
The Rams defensive line is great. The linebackers need an upgrade. Mack Wilson is a three down linebacker that could only improve the Rams Defense
32 Kyler Murray QB Texas A&M 5’10” 195
The Patriots need an heir to Tom Brady. Murray is a playmaker, but will have to overcome the height and NFL pass rush. Murray has the arm talent to be a starting NFL quarterback.

Final NFL Mock Draft 2018

Round 1
1 Browns Baker Mayfield QB Oklahoma 6’0″ 216
 With the recent news, it looks like Baker is on his way to the Browns. Browns get their future quarterback to build around, but leave the best QB in the draft on the board. At least they didn’t make the mistake of taking Josh Allen. With 4 picks in the top 35, Cleveland could be on the brink of turning the corner.
2 Giants Saquon Barkley RB Penn St. 6’0″ 233
 The Giants get another weapon to use on offense. Barkley is a blue chip player who the offense will be built around for years to come. Eli Manning is 37 years old and there is no long term replacement so Sam Darnold could be an option. But I think the Giants want another playmaker and end up going with Barkley.
3 Jets Sam Darnold QB USC 6’3″ 221
Jets traded up in order to secure a top notch quarterback. I’m sure they were not anticipating Darnold being here, but they somehow end up with the best quarterback in the draft. Someone could hop the Jets with a trade for the second pick with the Giants in order to secure Darnold. In that scenario, I believe they would select Rosen and still be happy.
4 Browns Bradley Chubb DE NC State 6’4″ 269
 They locked up their franchise with the first pick and acquire a blue chip player Bradley Chubb. The combination of Chubb and Garrett at defensive end should be a nightmare to opposing offensive lines.
5 Broncos Josh Allen QB Wyoming 6’5″ 238
 I believe that in this scenario Denver would probably trade back, most likely with Buffalo. However, I believe that quarterback could still be in play. Josh Allen has a lot of the qualities John Elway looks for in a quarterback and could be the call here.
6 Saints Roquan Smith ILB Georgia 6’1″ 236
 Colts have one of the worst rosters in the NFL. Roquan Smith is a talented player that could be a cornerstone to the Colts defense. He’s a three down player who could be an instant impact player on this defense.
7 Bucs Denzel Ward CB Ohio St. 5’11” 183
 Brent Grimes is 34 and Hargreaves is a better nickel cornerback. Denzel Ward is by far the most talented corner in this years draft and could go as high as 4. Ward gives Tampa Bay some depth and talent at corner.
8 Bears Quenton Nelson OG Notre Dame 6’5″ 325
 The Bears moved on from Josh Sitton at guard, and Nelson would be an immediate starter on the line. Having Nelson fall this far would be a tremendous win for the Bears as a great match between talent and need.
9 Minkah Fitzpatrick S Alabama 6’0″ 204
The 49ers have one of the best players in the draft fall to them thanks to the amount of quarterbacks taken. John Lynch loves big school talent and I believe will pick Fitzpatrick with this pick. 49ers are in a shaky position at linebacker with Reuben Foster so Tremaine Edmunds could be an option here.
10 Raiders Tremaine Edmunds OLB Virginia Tech 6’5″ 253
 The Raiders need an upgrade at weakside linebacker. Edmunds is only 19 years old and extremely athletic. The addition of Edmunds improves this defense right away.
11 Dolphins Josh Rosen QB UCLA 6’4″ 226
 A great scenario where a good quarterback falls right in the Dolphins lap. The Dolphins are in a prime position to add a quarterback of the future either by moving up or hoping one falls. In this instance, Rosen is the Dolphins answer at quarterback.
12 Bills Leighton Vander Esch OLB Boise St. 6’4″ 256
Vänder Esch is a late riser in this draft and is a perfect fit with the Bills. The Bills need an upgrade at the outside linebacker position. Vander Esch is an athletic, tackling machine that could be an impact player at the next level
13 Redskins Vita Vea DT Washington 6’4″ 347
 The Redskins went defensive line last year with Jonathan Allen, but it still remains a need. Vea is one of my favorite players in the draft as a strong, athletic freak that man handles offensive lineman. The addition of Vea turns the Redskins defensive line from a weakness to a strength.
14 Packers Joshua Jackson CB Iowa 6’0″ 196
Green Bay’s secondary is by far the biggest need. While Calvin Ridley does look like an attractive option to pair with Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, and Jimmy Graham, improving the defense is the biggest concern. Joshua Jackson was a ballhawk at Iowa and could step into this secondary right away. Moving up for Minkah Fitzpatrick could also be a viable option.
15 Cardinals Calvin Ridley WR Alabama 6’1″ 189
 The Cardinals will be looking for a quarterback at some point in the draft to replace retired Carson Palmer, but receiver also remains a need. With the number 1 receiver still on the board the Cardinals take a chance at trying to find Larry Fitzgerald’s future replacement.
16 Ravens Marcus Davenport DE UTSA 6’6″ 259
Terrell Suggs is not getting any younger. Davenport is a little bit of a project on the edge, but is exactly what you look for as a 3-4 edge rusher with his length. I believe Ozzie Newsome takes a chance at a potential great pass rusher with this pick.
17 Chargers Derwin James S Florida St. 6’2″ 215
 A dream scenario for the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers corner position is highly talented, but the safety position needs a major overhaul. Derwin James is a highly talented safety. If James isn’t there, an offensive lineman is probably the most likely option.
18 Seahawks Connor Williams OT Texas 6’5″ 296
The Seahawks offensive line needs an overhaul. Williams played left tackle at Texas, but could possibly be kicked inside to guard. A versatile offensive lineman is exactly what Seattle needs.
19 Cowboys Da’ron Payne DT Alabama  6’3″ 311
Dallas lacks depth on the interior defensive line. Payne has star potential, but will need to improve his consistency. A wide receiver is a possibility, but there doesn’t seem to be a receiver worth the 19th pick in this draft.
20 Lions Taven Bryan DT Florida 6’5″ 291
The Lions hit on the draft two years ago with A’Shawn Robinson at defensive tackle. They could try that again with Bryan. Bryan has a high upside and is more of a pass rusher. He is a boom or bust prospect that could booster this Lions defensive line.
21 Bengals Rashaan Evans ILB Alabama 6’2″ 232
Vontaze Burfict is suspended for four games and the Bengals need to revamp their linebacking core. Evans is a versatile linebacker who shouldn’t drop below here. Evans and Bengals would be a great match.
22 Bills  Lamar Jackson QB Louisville 6’2″ 216
 Yes he is a QB. Given the chance, Lamar could be a very successful NFL starter. He has a lot of zip in his passes, but will need to improve his intermediate accuracy. Lamar is going to be a matchup nightmare for defensive coordinators when he gets a shot to start.
23 Mike McGlinchey OT Notre Dame 6’8″ 309
 The Patriots have a major need at left tackle after Nate Solder left. Mike McGlinchey is one of the top tackles in a weak class and could be a potential starting left tackle on this team.
24 Panthers Jaire Alexander CB Louisville 5’10” 196
 The Panthers need some star power at the cornerback position opposite of James Bradberry. Jaire is one of the best corners in the draft and also adds return ability for the Panthers.
25 Titans Harold Landry OLB Boston College 6’2″ 252
The Titans need pass rushers on the defense. Having Landry fall all the way to 25 would be a perfect scenario for a defense that needs to improve.
26 Falcons Maurice Hurst DT Michigan 6’1″ 292
 The Falcons lost Dontari Poe to the Carolina Panthers. Therefore defensive tackle is one of the Falcons biggest needs. Maurice Hurst is an incredibly quick 3 technique that could compete for time early. The Falcons will hope he can have the same kind of success as Grady Jarrett.
27 Saints Hayden Hurst TE South Carolina 6’5″ 250
 The Saints lost out on getting Jimmy Graham back and Coby Fleener has not lived up to his free agent contract. Hayden Hurst is an athletic and versatile tight end that could fit the Saints need.
28 Steelers Mike Hughes CB UCF 5’10” 189
 The secondary for the Steelers is the weakness of the team. Mike Hughes would help out this unit along with possibly the return game as well.
29 Bucs Isaiah Wynn OG Georgia 6’3″ 308
 The Jags defense is very good. The offense is the thing holding the team back. Wynn gives the Jaguars a plug and play guard that will help bolster the offensive line.
30 Vikings James Daniels C Iowa 6’3″ 306
 The Vikings got a steal last year in Ohio State Center Pat Elflein. Adding James Daniels could push the Vikings interior line to the next level. Elflein or Daniels could be moved to guard.
31 Isaiah Oliver CB Colorado 6’0″ 201
 As seen in the Super Bowl, the secondary needs some help. Isaiah Oliver is a highly athletic corner with good ball skills. With Malcolm Butler moving on to the Titans, Isaiah Oliver could start opposite of Stephon Gilmore.
32 Eagles Ronnie Harrison S Alabama 6’2″ 207

NFL Draft Fever’s Top 200 Players

Top 40

Screen Shot 2018-04-26 at 9.03.27 AM.pngScreen Shot 2018-04-26 at 9.03.43 AM.png

I believe Chubb, Nelson, Barkley, Darnold and Fitzpatrick are the tier 1 talent of this draft. Chubb has that combination of having a great motor, but also the athleticism to give offensive tackles a lot of trouble. Nelson is the one player who really does not have many weaknesses. Saquon has rare athleticism as a running back, but will need to improve his vision in the NFL. Fitzpatrick is a do everything defensive back who will thrive with his versatility.

After that I believe Rashann Evans could be the steal of the draft. He can play inside or outside linebacker and does have edge rushing talent. Denzel Ward is by far the most talented corner in this draft with great man coverage skills. Leighton Vander Esch (LVE) gets a lot of hate for being a linebacker from Boise State, but he is a player. He is athletic and is always around the ball. He will need to improve getting off blocks to be a successful NFL player.

The bottom half of the first round has a ton of talented interior offensive lineman including James Daniels, Will Hernandez, Isaiah Wynn, and Billy Price. One guy that will most likely go first round that I am not the biggest fan of is Courtland Sutton. He is a big height-weight-speed guy, but does not always play to his size and does not get the best seperation. He could develop into a good NFL wide receiver, but he will have to improve on his route running in order to get separation at the next level.

Finally, one of my favorite second round guys is Nathan Shepherd from Fort Hays State. He may have played DII football, but he constantly was causing problems even when double and even triple teamed. Shepherd has the size and athleticism to translate into a very good NFL defensive lineman.

Best of the Rest

NFL Mock Draft 2018

Round 1
1 Browns Sam Darnold QB USC 6’4″ 225
 Browns get their future quarterback to build around and the best QB in the draft.
2 Giants Josh Rosen QB UCLA 6’4″ 220
 Eli Manning is 37 years old and there is no long term replacement. Rosen fills that role.
3 Saints Bradley Chubb DE North Carolina St. 6’3″ 275
 Colts need a major talent upgrade to their roster. They get one of the top players in the draft and fill a defensive line need.
4 Browns Minkah Fitzpatrick S Alabama 6’1″ 201
 Minkah would be a major upgrade for the Browns and would add versatility to the secondary.
5 Broncos Baker Mayfield QB Oklahoma 6’0″ 216
 Denver coached him at the Senior Bowl. John Elway takes a chance that Baker can translate that college success into nfl success
6 Jets Saquon Barkley RB Penn St. 5’11” 223
 Barkley slides a little due to the running back depth in the draft. Jets add an instant impact player for the offense.
7 Bucs Denzel Ward CB Ohio St. 5’10” 191
 Brent Grimes is 34 and a pending free agent and hargreaves is a better nickel cornerback. Ward gives Tampa Bay some depth and talent at corner.
8 Bears Quenton Nelson OG Notre Dame 6’5″ 325
 The Bears moved on from Josh Sitton at guard, Nelson would be an immediate starter on the line. this is a great match between talent and need.
9 Tremaine Edmunds OLB Virginia Tech 6’5″ 250
49ers are in a shaky position at linebacker with the arrest of Reuben Foster and both the outside linebacker positions needing upgrades. Tremaine Edmunds is an athletic freak and one of the best tacklers in the draft.
10 Raiders Roquan Smith ILB Georgia 6’0″ 225
 The Raiders need an upgrade at weakside linebacker. Roquan Smith is a three down linebacker that will fit this need. if Navorro Bowman leaves that will increase the need.
11 Dolphins Rashaan Evans ILB Alabama 6’2″ 234
 Evans is a do it all linebacker who can rush the passer on the edge or play the inside. This will add to the Dolphins linebacking unit that they’ve been trying to upgrade for years.
12 Bengals Orlando Brown OT Oklahoma 6’8″ 355
 Cedric Ogbuehi and Jake Fisher have been disappointing at tackle. Orlando Brown gives the bengals a potential franchise tackle for their offensive line.
13 Redskins Derwin James S Florida St. 6’3″ 211
 The Redskins need an upgrade at safety. Derwin james has star potential and would be a nice fit in Washington.
14 Packers Vita Vea DT Washington 6’5″ 344
New defensive coordinator likes a 3-4 nose tackle. Vita Vea is an absolute terror on the defensive line and would be a great fit for a Packers line that lacks depth.
15 Cardinals Josh Allen QB Wyoming 6’5″ 233
 With the retirement of Carson Palmer, the cardinals are without a longterm option at QB. Allen could be that QB that the Cardinals take a chance on.
16 Ravens Calvin Ridley WR Alabama 6’1″ 190
Ozzie Newsome loves himself some Alabama players.  Jeremy Maclin is getting older and Mike Wallace could be gone in free agency. Ridley would be the ideal Mike Wallace replacement.
17 Chargers Connor Williams OT Texas 6’6″ 320
 The Chargers offensive line is aging. Connor Williams is a nice option as a future left tackle or kick him inside to guard.
18 Seahawks Joshua Jackson CB Iowa 6’1″ 192
Corner has gone from a position of strength to a need. Joshua Jackson has the height seattle looks for and the ball hawking ability.
19 Cowboys Da’ron Payne DT Alabama  6’2″ 308
Dallas lacks depth on the interior defensive line. Payne has star potential, but will need to improve his consistency.
20 Lions Marcus Davenport DE UTSA 6’6″ 259
Even with giving Ansah the franchise tag they still need someone on the opposite side adding a pass rush. Davenport has the potential to be a very good defensive end in the league.
21 Bills Maurice Hurst DT Michigan 6’2″ 282
 The Bills need interior defensive line help. Hurst has rare pass rush ability for a DT and can help the bills on defense.
22 Bills  Lamar Jackson QB Louisville 6’3″ 200
 Yes he is a QB. Given the chance, lamar could be a very successful NFL starter. He has a lot of zip in his passes, but will need to improve his intermediate accuracy.
23 Rams Mike Hughes CB Central Florida 5’11” 191
 Even with acquiring Marcus Peters, the Rams still need corner help. Mike Hughes adds another playmaker to the Rams defense.
24 Panthers James Washington WR Oklahoma St. 5’11” 210
 Cam Newton needs help at receiver. Washington adds a playmaker to the panthers receiving core.
25 Titans Arden Key DE LSU 6’6″ 238
 Key has the talent to go much higher, but has some off the field issues. The Titans could take a chance on him adding a premier pass rusher to their defense.
26 Falcons Harrison Phillips DT Stanford 6’3″ 303
 The Falcons will likely lose Dontari Poe. Harrison Phillips is a possible replacement.
27 Saints Harold Landry OLb Boston College 6’2″ 250
 This would be ideal for the Saints to add a pass rusher like Landry. Landry had an injury filled 2017, but is a talented edge rusher when healthy.
28 Steelers Ronnie Harrison S Alabama 6’3″ 214
 The secondary for the steelers is the weakness of the team. Adding a hard hitting, playmaking like Ronnie Harrison could change that.
29 Bucs Isaiah Wynn OG Georgia 6’3″ 308
 The Jags defense is very good. The offense is the thing holding the team back. Wynn gives the Jaguars a plug and play guard that will help bolster the offensive line.
30 Vikings Billy Price C Ohio St. 6’3″ 312
 The Vikings got a steal last year in Ohio State Center Pat Elflein. Billy Price could push the Vikings interior line to the next level as Price can be moved to guard.
31 Isaiah Oliver CB Colorado 6’1″ 190
 As seen in the super bowl the secondary needs some help. Isaiah Oliver is a highly athletic corner with good ball skills. With malcolm Butler Likely moving on he could start opposite of Stephon Gilmore.
32 Eagles Mike McGlinchey OT Notre Dame 6’7″ 310
