2020 NFL Mock Draft: Eagles, Chargers trade up to add offensive firepower, Vikings add Stefon Diggs’ brother – CBS Sports

LSU

• Sr

• 6’4″

/ 221 lbs

Projected Team

Cincinnati

PROSPECT RNK

2nd

POSITION RNK

1st

There have been no murmurings that Cincinnati might be considering other options. Burrow is still the choice.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 264 lbs

Projected Team

Washington

PROSPECT RNK

1st

POSITION RNK

1st

After considering a quarterback at No. 2 overall, Washington sticks to the board and adds the draft’s top overall prospect.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 217 lbs

Los Angeles has its eyes set on adding a young quarterback to help sell seats. The Chargers move up for the right to select the Hawaii native.

Iowa

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 320 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

9th

POSITION RNK

2nd

The Giants have addressed some positions on defense, but the offensive line remains a need. Wirfs could be the team’s long-term answer at right tackle. Then, they would not have to add two offensive tackles next offseason.

Oregon

• Sr

• 6’6″

/ 236 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

20th

POSITION RNK

4th

With Burrow and Tagovailoa off the board, Miami is faced with a decision to add either Jordan Love or Herbert. Miami has been linked to Herbert for a while.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

4th

POSITION RNK

1st

After moving Darius Slay, Detroit slides back, picks up some additional draft capital and still adds the player who they would have targeted at No. 3 overall.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 238 lbs

Projected Team

Carolina

PROSPECT RNK

3rd

POSITION RNK

1st

Carolina has been piecing out their roster over the past few months, but they take a rare opportunity to add a young defensive star.

Louisville

• Jr

• 6’7″

/ 364 lbs

Projected Team

Arizona

PROSPECT RNK

11th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Arizona retained D.J. Humphries, but it needs more from the position. Whether he plays left or right tackle, Becton is an important addition to protect mobile quarterback Kyler Murray. The addition of DeAndre Hopkins frees the Cardinals up to make some different choices here.

Auburn

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 326 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

7th

POSITION RNK

1st

Jacksonville has ended the relationship with several veterans from last year’s team, which signals a re-build. However, the Jags added linebacker Joe Schobert on a big deal. The addition of Brown would help solidify them up the middle.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 312 lbs

Projected Team

Cleveland

PROSPECT RNK

6th

POSITION RNK

1st

Cleveland added Jack Conklin in free agency, which solved some issues on the right side. However, they still have to fill a need at left tackle. At No. 10 overall, they have their choice of Wills, Thomas or trading down and potentially selecting one of the other top options.

Georgia

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 315 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

15th

POSITION RNK

4th

New York has invested in its offensive line through free agency, but not enough. The Jets still have some concerns and, until those are filled, offensive tackle remains a need for them.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 193 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

12th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Las Vegas has spent on the defensive side of the ball in free agency, but it has hardly touched the offense. Jeudy makes a lot of sense here given Mike Mayock’s appreciation for the traditional powerhouse colleges and his technique.

Oklahoma

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 198 lbs

San Francisco acquired No. 13 overall this week in a deal for DeForest Buckner. After pursuing some top flight receivers via trade over the past few years, they finally land one through the draft.

Alabama

• Jr

• 5’11”

/ 188 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

14th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Denver looks like a likely landing spot for Ruggs so Philadelphia jumps them, similar to what they did last year to secure Andre Dillard. After landing Darius Slay, their list of needs is dwindling quickly.

South Carolina

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 324 lbs

Projected Team

Denver

PROSPECT RNK

10th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Denver still needs to add to its defensive line despite the addition of Jurrell Casey.

Oklahoma

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 241 lbs

Projected Team

Atlanta

PROSPECT RNK

25th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Atlanta brought Tyeler Davison back and signed Dante Fowler Jr. but the Falcons need to continue building out the linebacker unit. Murray is an active player that can bring some fire to that Falcons defense.

Florida

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 204 lbs

Projected Team

Dallas

PROSPECT RNK

18th

POSITION RNK

2nd

After losing Byron Jones in free agency, Dallas is in a bit of a quandary. The Cowboys move to select Henderson to fill in the hole.

Houston

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 319 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

32nd

POSITION RNK

5th

Miami parted with both offensive tackles last offseason, so it is imperative that they add one or two in the first round. They drafted Justin Herbert with the first of three first-round picks and now they add Jones for some protection.

LSU

• Sr

• 6’0″

/ 197 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

22nd

POSITION RNK

3rd

Las Vegas is signing Eli Apple in free agency, but that does not solve the Raiders’ need at the position. Fulton, another player from a championship caliber program, can add some physicality to that unit.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 201 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

17th

POSITION RNK

1st

McKinney is the best player on the board. He can slide into a nickel role or play safety. His versatility is eerily reminiscent of Minkah Fitzpatrick.

USC

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 322 lbs

Projected Team

Tampa Bay

PROSPECT RNK

47th

POSITION RNK

6th

No. 14 overall was too early for Tampa Bay to dive into the second wave of offensive tackles, so they traded back a bit and still landed a quality player. Jackson is trending up after being less than 100 percent in 2019.

Alabama

• Sr

• 6’1″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

28th

POSITION RNK

4th

After dealing Stefon Diggs to Buffalo, Minnesota selects his brother to fill some needs at cornerback. Xavier Rhodes, Trae Waynes and Mackenzie Alexander have either agreed to terms with another team or have been released. It is a big position of need.

Utah State

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 224 lbs

Projected Team

New England

PROSPECT RNK

19th

POSITION RNK

3rd

New England is pumping out the narrative that they are happy with Jarrett Stidham. They may be happy with Stidham, but it would also make sense for them to act happy so no one got anxious to take a quarterback they like in the draft.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 202 lbs

Projected Team

New Orleans

PROSPECT RNK

31st

POSITION RNK

5th

Michael Thomas gets to team up with Jefferson to form a dynamic duo at wide receiver. Jefferson does not have to travel far to join his new NFL team.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 229 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

34th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Minnesota needs to start preparing for the future. They have a highly paid linebacker room and some changes need to be made if they hope for any future flexibility.

Iowa

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 275 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

16th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Miami sticks to its board and takes the best player available. Epenesa is a strong player who can help reset the expectations in that locker room.

Penn State

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 266 lbs

Projected Team

Seattle

PROSPECT RNK

21st

POSITION RNK

4th

As of writing this, Seattle has not yet signed Jadeveon Clowney, so it makes sense that Gross-Matos might be an option.

LSU

• Soph

• 6’3″

/ 254 lbs

Projected Team

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

13th

POSITION RNK

2nd

It remains to be seen whether or not Baltimore will move Matt Judon to create some cap room. Baltimore has done well at keeping its shelves stocked with pass rushers. It is unreasonable to think it will be any different post-Ozzie Newsome.

Oklahoma

• Sr

• 6’2″

/ 304 lbs

Projected Team

Tennessee

PROSPECT RNK

27th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Tennessee has Jeffery Simmons but it moved on from Jurrell Casey. The addition of Gallimore gives the Titans a youthful piece to push the pocket and create opportunities for the linebackers.

Arizona State

• Sr

• 6’0″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Green Bay

PROSPECT RNK

38th

POSITION RNK

7th

Green Bay has Davante Adams but it can add another explosive, underneath option for Aaron Rodgers. The Packers have not taken a wide receiver in the first round since Javon Walker in 2002.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 213 lbs

The Jimmie Ward situation remains unresolved so San Francisco is tapping into the safety market for now. Delpit has first round ability, but certainly presents some risk.

Georgia

• Jr

• 5’8″

/ 212 lbs

Projected Team

Kansas City

PROSPECT RNK

41st

POSITION RNK

2nd

Kansas City has gotten by without investing in the running back position, but the days of Priest Holmes and Jamaal Charles were awesome. It is time to give the Chiefs another explosive weapon in the backfield.
