The draft is four days away! I will have my final mock around 5p on Thursday. I say this every year but this truly maybe the hardest draft to predict. So many unknown variables and rumors. Its hard to predict but going to be great TV to watch. Here is my second to final attempt at a first round mock. Let me know your thoughts and we will see how much this changes between now and my final mock!

If you missed any of Davids 2020 Deep Dives start here with wide receivers! https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/2020-deep-dive-rookie-wrs/nfl/04/

1. Cincinnati Bengals: Joe Burrow – QB LSU

LSU QB Joe Burrow

2. Washington Redskins: Chase Young – Edge Ohio State

3. Detroit Lions: Jeff Okudah – CB Ohio State

Ohio State DB Jeff Okudah

4. New York Giants: Jedrick Wills – OT Alabama

Alabama OT Jedrick Wills

Gettleman has stated he wants to work the trenches early in the draft and has a connection with Saban. Wills can plug and play immediately. With how the world is being effected right now, that Saban-Gettleman connection screams Wills at fourth overall.

5. Miami Dolphins: Tua Tagovailoa – QB Alabama

6. Las Angeles Chargers: Justin Herbert – QB Oregon

Oregon QB Justin Herbert

7. Carolina Panthers: Isaiah Simmons – LB/S Clemson

Clemson LB Isaiah Simmons

Rhule has said he likes speed and Simmons offers speed and versatility for this defense. I’d rather Carolina select Brown at DT but think Simmons could be the easy pick here.

8. Arizona Cardinals: Tristan Wirfs – OT Iowa

9. Jacksonville Jaguars: Derrick Brown – DT Auburn

Auburn DT Derrick Brown

10. Cleveland Browns: Mekhi Becton -OT Louisville

Louisville OT Mekhi Becton

Even with a flagged drug test at the combine, Becton is still one of the top tackles and currently the Browns do not have a tackle on the left side. He is a raw and huge man that can start right away!

11. New York Jets: CeeDee Lamb – WR Oklahoma

Oklahoma WR CeeDee Lamb

12. Las Vegas Raiders: Jerry Jeudy -WR Alabama

Alabama WR Jerry Jeudy

13. San Francisco 49ers: Henry Ruggs – WR Alabama

Alabama WR Henry Ruggs

The San Francisco 49ers can go a few ways here but they just saw first hand in the SB what speed can do to a defense. Why not grab their own version of Tyreek Hill? Ruggs offers them that chance. Shanahan will enjoy this new toy!

14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Andrew Thomas – OT Georgia

15. Denver Broncos: CJ Henderson – CB Florida

16. Atlanta Falcons: Javon Kinlaw – DT South Carolina

South Carolina DT Javon Kinlaw

17. Dallas Cowboys: K’Lavon Chaisson – EDGE LSU

LSU DE K’lavon Chaisson

18. Miami Dolphins – Xavier McKinney – S Alabama

Alabama DB Xavier McKinney

19. Las Vegas Raiders: AJ Terrell – CB Clemson

Raiders need a CB to help but which one at this point? You can make a case for a few and may even have 1 or 2 ranked higher than Terrell. However, Mayock loves these Clemson players and Terrell offers good size and speed and can play in this defense.

20. Jacksonville Jaguars: Kristian Fulton – CB LSU

21. Philadelphia Eagles: Justin Jefferson – WR LSU

LSU WR Justin Jefferson

22. Minnesota Vikings: Jeff Gladney – CB TCU

23. New England Patriots: Jordan Love – QB Utah State

Utah State QB Jordan Love

24. New Orleans Saints: Patrick Queen – LB LSU

LSU LB Patrick Queen

25. Minnesota Vikings: Yetur Gross-Matos – Edge Penn State

Penn State DE Yetur Gross-Matos

26. Miami Dolphins: Josh Jones – OT Houston

27. Seatle Seahawks: AJ Epenesa – Edge Iowa

Iowa DE A.J. Espenesa

28. Baltimore Ravens: Kenneth Murray – LB Oklahoma

29. Tennessee Titans: Zach Baun – OLB Wiscons

Wisconsin OLB Zack Baun

Titans are in a unique spot here at 29. They could address RT after losing Conklin here. But signed Dennis Kelly to a 3 year Deal to be their RT. He’s not as good as Conklin but he is a serviceable solution for them to draft other needs at 29. Corner seems to be there biggest need but the ones they want are gone here. They now go to pass rusher. They signed Beasley to a 1 year deal but could look for their future. Baun is a perfect 3-4 OLB that can rush and cover and a perfect pick for them.

30. Green Bay Packers: Denzel Mims – WR Baylor

Baylor WR Denzel Mims

31. San Francisco 49ers: Jayson Johnson – CB Utah

32. Kansas City Chiefs: Cesar Ruiz – C/G Michigan

Michigan OL Ceaser Ruiz
