2020 NFL Mock Draft 5-7-19


nfl draft

We have 2020 vision, NFL Draft style, for the first time, right here, right now. It’s our first ever 2020 NFL mock draft, and the order, for now was simply replicated from 2019. Team needs, nor the 2019 NFL mock draft (which you can view over at this link), were taken into account.

As we have a whole draft, and two rounds of free agency to go through, it’s just too early to factor in team needs. Obviously this will be modified and reworked hundreds, if not thousands of times between now and 2020 NFL Draft day. Enjoy!


1 Arizona, Tua Tagovailoa, QBAlabama

Seems to be #1 overall on many a draft board and 2020 NFL mock draft

2 San Francisco, Derrick Brown, DT, Auburn

Could be the highest non-QB selected

3 NY Jets, Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia

A prospect who has been ready for awhile, but there is that goofy rule stipulating that you need to be out of high school three years.

4 OaklandAndrew Thomas, OL, Georgia

The Raiders team needs are….well, everything.

5 Tampa Bay, Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama

The whole package, as good a prospect we’ve seen at the position in a very long time.

6 NY Giants, Grant Delpit, DB, LSU

LSU continues to be DBU; rinse and repeat

7 Jacksonville, Chase Young, DE, Ohio State

The OSU NFL DL factory keeps churning.

8 Detroit, Raekwon Davis, DL, Alabama

Probably could have come out and been a late first round or early second round pick this year.

9 Buffalo, Tyler Biadasz, OL, Wisconsin

The Wisconsin NFL OL factory keeps churning.


10 Denver, Walker Little, OL, Stanford

Blue-chip big boy to protect the ELITE Joe Flacco; if he’s still there by this point.

11 CincinnatiLaviska Shenault, WR, Colorado

Under the radar name to watch this fall

12 Green Bay, Mekhi Becton, OL, Louisville

Lots of big road graders, space eaters will go very high in this draft

13 Miami, Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin

The Wisconsin NFL RB factory keeps churning as the nation’s leading rusher and Doak Walker Award winner is back for another g-around.

14 Atlanta, Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson

Tigers will be more pass happy this year, but that won’t hurt Etienne’s draft stock. He could be the first or second back off the boards.

15 Washington, Isaiah Simmons, DB, Clemson

Has a great D Coordinator to work under in Brent Venables, and his stock should only rise.

16 CarolinaTee Higgins, WR, Clemson

So much talent at this position at Clemson right now- will be interesting to see how Trevor Lawrence distributes the ball to everybody and keeps everyone happy.

17 Cleveland, Kenny Willekes, DL, Michigan State 

Given Mark Dantonio’s inexplicable decisions to only shuffle, but not ultimately change his offensive staff, and refusal to dip into the QB transfer market- Sparty is going to have to play a helluva lotta defense. They need Willekes to come up big and he has a great opportunity to shine.

18 Minnesota, Kristian Fulton, DB, LSU

Tigers secondary will be locked and loaded this autumn.

19 Tennessee, Collin Johnson, WR, Texas

Big tall wideout set to put up huge numbers in 2019.

paddy fisher

20 Pittsburgh, Paddy Fisher, LB, Northwestern

“Baby Fitz,” is mentored everyday at NU by Head Coach Pat Fitzgerald, a linebacker who won AP Defensive Player of the Year twice during his collegiate career at Northwestern. Fisher though came to college football with higher recruiting rankings than Fitzgerald and he’ll enter the NFL Draft cycle with much higher pro prospects than his boss did.

21 Seattle, A.J. Terrell, DB, Clemson

Has shown his chops against some of the best WRs in college football, many of which are strong pro prospects. Expect those skills to translate to the next level.

22 Baltimore, Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon

Made a monumental mistake by staying in school. Will perhaps fall down the boards now. Maybe Baltimore could be a landing spot now post Joe Flacco?

23 Houston, Rashard Lawrence, DL, LSU

An expert at getting into opposing back fields, Lawrence could be an every down player.

24 Oakland/Las Vegas via Chicago, Tommy Kraemer, OL, Notre Dame

He’s been overshadowed by all the talented OL in South Bend the past few years, some of which were drafted pretty high. Now is the time for him to rise up the depth charts and seize his chance. Opportunity arises…

25 PhiladelphiaA.J. Epenesa, DE, Iowa

26 IndianapolisJ.K. Dobbins, RB, Ohio State

Expect him to really shine this year in the change and adaptation to the Ryan Day regime.

27 DallasMalik Harrison, LB, Ohio State

28 L.A. Chargers, Jalen Hurts, QB, Oklahoma

29 Kansas City, Jaelen Phillips, DE/OLB, UCLA 

30 New Orleans, Chase Lucas, CB, Arizona State

31 L.A. Rams, Curtis Weaver, DE/OLB, Boise State

shea patterson

32 New England, Shea Patterson, QB, Michigan:

Time to draft a Tom Brady successor? Why not go back to the same well?

Patterson definitely needs to improve this year in order to make the first round, but we predict he will under Jim Harbaugh. His mobility is certainly plus.

    If you’re going to be bold in predicting the order of players drafted, shouldn’t you also be bold in predicting the teams order? If Arizona is drafting overall @1 again, I don’t think they take a QB for the 3rd straight year.

  2. Jean Deaux says

    Kept the same draft order as 20 19 with teams drafting in their original spots. Thus, Cleveland at 17, for example. But having Arizona and Jets drafting QBs again is nonsense. This was a waste of time to write up and for us to read.

    Who did this? The Jets at 3, then taking a QB? Just quit.
