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

2020 ROOKIE IDP Mock Draft (Round 2)

2020 Fantasy Football ROOKIE IDP Mock Draft (Round 2)
4/4/20

Round 1 of the Rookie IDP mock draft. https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/2020-rookie-idp-mock-draft-round-1/nfl/04/

Another off-season and what a wild one it has been! We’re already into April and all professional sports are STILL suspended and there is no end in sight. So in turn we have a ton of spare time! Spare time means content and discussions! The NFL draft is close and that means rookie mock drafts!

We all have our own opinion. We all have our own research. That’s the beauty of fantasy sports and mock drafting. 2019 was a great draft class. 2020 is even stronger! If you missed it here are our 2020 rookie rankings! https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/2020-nfl-rookie-rankings/nfl/03/

This 2020 draft class is filled to the brim with young and hungry guys looking to stake their claim to the throne. This is a very strong class of kids and its loaded with offensive talent. Running backs and wide receivers galore! Let’s not forget the defensive side of things as well!

If you and your league get together to draft rookies separately then I salute you! It just adds more fun to the process! The more I get into the process the more I see how loaded this 2020 draft class is! Playing in an IDP league adds a whole different dynamic to both the draft and waivers!

This should be fun! Lets go!

ROUND 2

Wisconsin OLB Zack Baun

13. Zach Baun DE-Wisconsin

Baun has a very high football IQ and is able to play several linebacker positions. He’s able to fly around the field an accumulate tackles. Zach had 19.5 tackles for loss with 12.5 sacks in 2019. He comes from a great program in Wisconsin and is no doubt NFL ready.

Southern Illinois S Jeremy Chinn

14. Jeremy Chinn S-Southern Illinois

Chinn has come out of nowhere after an awesome combine! He’s freakishly athletic and that alone gives him tremendous upside. He has the size and speed to get it done on the field and make it big in the NFL.

Minnesota DB Antoine Winfield Jr.

15. Antoine Winfield Jr. DB-Minnesota

Another high football IQ guy who makes good decisions on the field. A lot of his potential will depend on the team who drafts him. If used in the right capacity Winfield Jr. can be an above average safety in the pros!

Texas Tech LB Jordyn Brooks

16. Jordyn Brooks LB-Texas Tech

Brooks has continued to improve during his time at Texas Tech. He gets to the ball fast and does damage. Has some learning to do in coverage if the coaches deem that it’s needed. He’s damn good at stopping the run so given the right set of plays his upside and potential can be realized.

Oregon LB Troy Dye

17. Troy Dye LB-Oregon

Troy is a high motor guy. He’s a mad man at linebacker! Troy racked up almost 400 tackles in his college career at Oregon! I can’t stress enough how tough this kid is and how much he loves playing football. He’s there for his team at all costs. This mind set will translate well into the pros. I’d draft a hard working kid like Dye any day of the week!

Lenior-Rhyne S Kyle Dugger

18. Kyle Dugger DB-Lenoir Rhyne

The perfect example of a boom or bust prospect. Kyle had a fantastic showing at the combine. At 6’1 217lbs he has the size and strength to be a ball hawk at safety. He can hang in the backfield and disrupt routes and break up passes. I love taking a good informed risk! Small school superstar!

California S Ashton Davis

19. Ashtyn Davis S-California

Davis is in your face physical and he’s fast enough to keep up! He didn’t run at the combine but he’s a track star at CAL. Plenty of tape on him. He’s a great cover guy and it makes for a great pick here. He’s willing and able to keep pace while accumulating tackles galore.

Appalachian State LB Akeem Davis-Gaither

20. Akeem Davis-Gaither LB-Appalachian State

Akeem has had back to back 100+ tackle seasons at App State. He will be a great fit in the NFL seeing how he’s a legit and true linebacker. I have no issue drafting his as a linebacker with tremendous upside on my fantasy team.

Utah DE Bradlee Anae

21. Bradlee Anae DE-Utah

One of the more polished edge rushers in the draft, Anae has played 700+ snaps in the last three seasons. He’s disruptive and a menace. He gets around the edge quick and drives QB’s crazy. There is some work ahead of him in the NFL but with his durability and experience I see no issue.

Alabama DT Raekwon Davis

22. Raekwon Davis DL-Alabama

Davis is 6’6 and 311lbs. I’m sure he could flip a car if you asked. We’ve all seen how NFL ready the kids from Alabama are right? What’s shocking is the fact he can do better and I’m certain he will. His size and strength doesn’t grow on trees, he’s a work in progress and I want in on it!

Boise State DE Curtis Weaver

23. Curtis Weaver DE-Boise State

Curtis is favorite of mine in this 2020 draft class. He’s a hard working versatile edge rusher. Earned All-American honors and is now the all time sack leader for the Mountain West conference. He can play several of the line backing positions which can only help his cause. He’s the kind of kid I want on my fantasy team.

TCU DT Ross Blacklock

24. Ross Blacklock DT-TCU

Ross had a good combine which he needed. I’ve read some articles and a few people look at him as a one year wonder. He’s 6’4 290lbs with massive hands. If an NFL team falls in love with him he could go in the 1st round. We can only read and prepare so much. Ultimately it’s out of our hands. Keep your eyes open on draft day.
