Too Early 2021 NFL Draft RD2

Too Early 2021 NFL Draft
Ben Anderson

Over the last few months I’ve learned several things about social media. First and foremost it’s toxic! Second, people really like to look ahead. Third, crazier the comment then higher the likes.

In the spirit of social media toxicity what better way to join the party then with an early 2021 mock draft!

Ben is one of our resident college football fans and writers. He loves NFL mock drafts so who am I to stop him? If you missed ROUND 1 check it out right here!

Too Early 2021 NFL Mock Draft II

Early 2021 Mock Draft II
David Reed

A friend of mine, Ben, who recently published his early 2021 mock, got the juices flowing for me to produce my first 2021 mock of this year! I cannot be out shined by him!

2020 has been a year to forget but, does not mean we can’t look forward to the 2021 draft. This years scouting will be harder than ever with kids opting out and only having last years tape only to go off of. Plus combine/pro day work. Its going to be fun to see how this changes from now until April.

Did you miss Ben’s first round mock? Find it here!

Tweet or comment where ever you read this article on anything you want to go over. Love a good conversation of where my thought process is going here. Thanks for reading!

1. Jets: Trevor Lawrence – QB Clemson

Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence

Do the Jets move on from Sam Darnold? It’s hard to say at this point with the lack of help around him to succeed. Hopefully we will know the Jets plan closer to the draft. As of know we will give them the best prospect in the draft, as long as he doesn’t return for his senior season.

2. Jacksonville: Justin Fields – QB Ohio State

Ohio State QB Justin Fields

Don’t be shocked come April, we’re not talking about Fields being the #1 QB selected. Most who don’t follow the draft as deep will laugh but when it comes into question, just remember I mentioned this. (Not saying I fully believe, but saying I wouldn’t be shocked)

3. Washington: Penei Sewell – OT Oregon

Oregon OT Penei Sewell

The best prospect in this draft, maybe even over the two listed QBs already selected. Washington missed out on the two polarizing QB prospects, but could stick it out with Alex Smith or look to FA. They need a dominate LT since they lost Williams two years ago.

4. Cowboys: Patrick Surtain II – CB Alabama

Alabama CB Patrick Surtain II

5. Chargers: Christian Darrisaw – OT Virginia Tech

Virgina Tech OT Christian Darrisaw

6. Dolphins: Micah Parson – LB Penn State

Penn St LB Micah Parsons

It was between Parson and Chase for me here. With it being such a deep WR class again, I opted for the Dolphins to wait to address that position and fill the need on defense first

7. Bengals: Greg Rousseau – Edge Miami

Miami DT Gregory Rousseau

8. Giants: Ja’Marr Chase – WR LSU

LSU WR JaMarr Chase

Giants have a ton of needs but they lack a true #1 weapon for their young QB. Slayton is great as a #2. Bringing in Chase could be that legit weapon to pair with him taking Jones to the next level!

9. Panthers: Caleb Farley – CB Virginia Tech

Virginia Tech CB Caleb Farley

10. Falcons: Keith Paye – Edge Michigan

Michigan DE Keith Paye

11. Broncos: Samuel Cosmi – OT Texas

Texas OT Samuel Cosmi

There is real talk Denver may move on from Lock already. And with a few big name QBs on the board, it’s a possibility. Something I will monitor and see where my pick here goes in the near future.

12. 49ers: Wyatt Davis: IOL – Ohio St.

Ohio State OL Wyatt Davis

Another team with talks they could move from their QB. They still have money invested in Jimmy G and think they will not move on from him yet. They will need to sure up the interior line for a healthy 2021 season and make yet another run.

13. Lions: Jaylen Waddle – WR Alabama

Alabama WR Jaylen Waddle

14. Vikings: Jay Tufele – DT USC

USC DT Jay Tufele

15. Patriots: Trey Lance – QB North Dakota State

North Dakota St QB Trey Lance

16. Bears: Zach Wilson – QB BYU

BYU QB Zach Wilson

17. Browns: Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah – LB Notre Dame

Notre Dame LB Jeremiah Owusu-Kora

18. Titans: Joseph Ossai – Edge Texas

Texas DE Joseph Ossai

19. Eagles: Dylan Moses – LB Alabama

Alabama LB Dylan Moses

Eagles need a lot of help, one area in need is the LB position. Moses has the ability to play sideline to sideline. Something the Eagles desperately need.

20. Cardinals: Jaycee Horn – CB South Carolina

South Carolina CB Jaycee Horn

21. Jets: Devonta Smith – WR Alabama

Alabama WR DeVonta Smith

22. Dolphins: Travis Etienne – RB Clemson

Clemson RB Travis Etienne

23. Colts: Jalen Mayfield – OT Michigan

Michigan OL Jalen Mayfield

24. Ravens: Trevor Moehrig – S TCU

TCU Safety Trevon Moehrig

25. Jacksonville: Kyle Pitts – TE Florida

Florida TE Kyle Pitts

26. Raiders: Creed Humphrey – IOL Oklahoma

Oklahoma OL Creed Humphrey

27. Buccaneers: Alijah Vera-Tucker – IOL USC

USC OL Alijah Vera-Tucker

28. Bills: Shaun Wade – CB Ohio State

Ohio State CB Shaun Wade

29. Packers: Eric Stokes – CB Georgia

Georgia CB Eric Stokes

30. Chiefs: Rashad Bateman – WR Minnesota

Minnesota WR Rashod Bateman

31. Saints: Kyle Trask – QB Florida

Florida QB Kyle Trask

32. Steelers: Dillon Radunz – OT North Dakota State

North Dakota St. OL Dillon Radunz

2020 NFL Mock Draft v7
David Reed

Today is the day! First I wish the best of luck to all the prospects this year. Now for my final mock! I made some new picks than normal. Its going to be a wild draft and I think we will see some unique selections and it goes a lot different than we all expected. My goal is 5 picks right this year which is about half of what I normally average. Without further ado here is my final mock of 2020.

Fun With Running Back ADP

Fun With RB ADP Rankings
Chris Robin

Is any one sick of the 2020 Draft content? How about the 2020 fantasy football season? Are we running it into the ground? By the looks of it, I’m going to say no! My Twitter feed and other social media outlets are absolutely loaded with fantasy football and NFL Draft questions.

It’s pretty easy to figure out why. Most of us are stuck at home with nothing but our phones and streaming services. It’s never a bad thing to be prepared. It’s never a bad thing to go over every option possible for the actual NFL Draft.

Within reason! There is still a lot of time left before the start of the 2020 NFL season. Burning out is a real thing! For most of us, fantasy football will never get old. I’m not talking about you. I’m talking to the first time fantasy football player. Or a young kid looking to take on his first ever dynasty team. Have you ever heard, “Rome wasn’t built in one day?”

All the experience we’ve accumulated over the years has taken time. A lot of blood, sweat and tears. Plus, the entire point of this is fun! Enjoying yourself and relaxing! Fantasy football! Your own little oasis, build your own fantasy!

I had a fun idea about comparing all my mock draft notes and making a list of each positional player and their ADP. Below is a chart I made after I ran 100 mock drafts (PPR) through a simulator. I logged all the top 20 players at each offensive position. This is the chart for running backs!

Christian McCafferyRBCarolina1.31.011.03
Saquon BarkleyRBNew York2.51.011.04
Alvin KamaraRBNew Orleans5.11.011.1
Ezekiel ElliotRBDallas8.71.011.12

Melvin GordonRBDenver211.073.09
Chris CarsonRBSeattle301.044.1

Kerryon JohnsonRBDetroit38.82.076.01

Austin EklerRBLos Angeles40.71.126.11
Mark IngramRBBaltimore45.51.096.12
David MontgomeryRBChicago47.83.026.12

It’s a lot to take in right? In terms of the Top 20 running backs, that’s all standard stuff. When you start looking at the ADP and comparing certain RB’s to highest and lowest you can see the trends that are happening in fantasy mock drafts!

The top 10 ranking running backs headed into the season all have first overall potential.

New York Jets RB Le’Veon Bell

Do you find it shocking to see to see that the mid-tier guys like Bell, Singletary, Kerryon and James Connor highest ADP is mid-second round? I don’t, those RB’s have seen a drop in value recently.

Buffalo RB Devin Singletary

The tail end of the Top 20 includes Ekler, Ingram and David Montgomery. The lowest average position they fall to are all the way into the 6th round. Which is absurd right? Not as crazy as you’d think!

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler

I published these results so we could talk about them. They don’t do me any good tucked away in a notebook. It’s just a good piece of information to have and use when making a draft plan of your own! Just keep in mind there are a lot of young and talented rookies being drafted and mixed in with these mocks. Hence the reason for certain players dropping and not keeping their normal ADP value. Hope it helps!

Thank you for reading! Any questions or comments? Stay tuned as I will get into each offensive skill position! One positional ranking at a time!

2020 Mock Draft (Round 1) v6

2020 Mock Draft (Round 1) v6
David Reed

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!

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

Atlanta Falcons 2020 Mock Draft 2.0

Atlanta Falcons 2020 Mock Draft 2.0
Ben Anderson

The Falcons are in a very cautious situation this off-season, as this is the year that’s going to determine the fate of both the GM (Thomas Dimitroff) and Head Coach (Dan Quinn). Dan Quinn is signed through 2022 and is most definitely on the hot seat entering the 2020 season. This being after an extremely disappointing two years mixed in with the team’s disastrous collapse in Superbowl 51. The Falcons draft plans are pretty much all over the place mostly because of all the needs and holes throughout the entire roster. The Falcons have done a few things so far this off-season in terms of major moves. The Donte Fowler and Todd Gurley free agent signing are big moves that Dan Quinn is hoping will help save his job for at least another year.

Ben has also written an entire 2020 Mock Draft! All seven rounds! All 255 selections! Read here!

Atlanta Falcons Mock Draft 2.0! Where do I begin? Needs, LB, Edge Rusher, CB, DT, OL, RB. It’s obviously a lot. At pick 16 you can do a lot there. Trade up if somebody falls (Jeffrey Okudah or Derrick Brown) Or hang tight for C.J Henderson, Javon Kinlaw, or Patrick Queen. Atlanta can also consider trading back for Gross-Matos, Kenneth Murray or Zack Bruan. Atlanta has hired a new numbers man and will be getting into the analytics more deeply this season then they have in the past. Apparently the numbers have shown that DTs aren’t the right move. So unless Derrick Brown falls significantly, which isn’t expected, don’t expect Atlanta to trade up unless it’s for Okudah or Henderson.

Round 1 pick 16
Patrick Queen, Linebacker, LSU 6’1 230.

LSU LB Patrick Queen

Pairing Queen with Deion Jones gives Atlanta one the most athletic line-backing tandems in football!

Round 2 pick 47
Justin Madubuike, DT Texas A&M 6’3 304

Texas A&M DT Justin Madubuike

Madubuike helps bulk up the interior defensive line next to Grady Jarrett.

Round 3 pick 78
Bradley Anae, DE Utah 6’3 260

Utah DE Bradlee Anae

Playing opposite Fowler on the Defensive line, Anae has high upside and decent size to play with his hand in the dirt or standing up tall. Atlanta is poised to fix there pass rush with Bradley.

Round 4 pick 119
Bryce Hall, CB Virginia 6’1 200

Virginia CB Bryce Hall

Normally Hall would be a first-round selection but he only played in 6 games this past season because of a broken ankle and his stock has been falling quickly because of it.

Round 4 pick 143
A.J Dillon, RB Boston College 6’0 245

Boston College RB A.J. Dillon

Dillon is a big boy who runs a 4.53, he’s basically a freight train with the rock in his hands. Considering how Atlanta doesn’t have a big back he’d play nicely in the mix of Todd Gurley and Ito Smith.

Round 7 pick 228
Freddie Swain WR, Florida 6’0 200

Florida WR Freddie Swain

Good speed 4.45 and good route runner and will be a good slot receiver and will help out on special teams tremendous.

So, it’s obvious that the defense will be the number one priority in the 2020 draft. I personally don’t see Atlanta picking at 16. They’ll either trade up and into the top 10 to grab Jeffrey Okudah who slides, or they trade back and add a second 2nd round pick. Whatever is decided they need to get it right because this is a must-win season.

2020 Deep Dive Rookie Offensive Tackles

2020 Deep Dive Rookie OT’s
David Reed

Time to get into the OT in this draft. They may not be as fun to read about as the Skill positions but they are one of the most important positions on the field.  Below are arguably the TOP 10 tackles you will see drafted this April!

If you missed Davids rookie tight-end deep dive find it here!

If you missed Davids rookie deep dive wide receivers find it here!

Alabama OT Jedrick Wills

Jedrick Wills – Alabama 6-5 320

– Strong
– Creates huge movement
– Creates leverage points
– Heavy hands
– Punches with great placement and timing
– Shows good balance and control
– Great footwork in pass pro
– Good awareness

– Has great foot speed but needs to count on it more at the next level with his technique
– At times let’s his hands go low allowing defends a chance to beat him
– Played only on the Right side (tuas blind side) can he adjust to the left side still

Wills is polished and has a mean streak about him to punish defenders. His main knock is can he play the left side on a line after years of being on the ride. I am sure he can but that could be what makes him slide some, but you are getting a sound tackle.

Iowa OT Tristan Wirfs

Tristan Wirfs – Iowa 6-5 322

– Impressive mobility/body control
– Shows good functional strength
– Uses his hips well
– Plenty of pop out of his stance to stun a defender
– Has the athletic speed to work next level on run blocks
– Has ability to play Guard as well as RT or LT

– Can be late to his punches in pass pro allowing defenders to get inside of him
– Can be top heavy when run blocking. Making him fall over before getting to his 2nd level block
– Can continue to work on hand placement

Wirfs is a very athletic tackle for his size. He has the ability to play all over the line.  He started 3.5 at RT with some time late at LT and impressed there. He can dominate at guard if he fails at the tackle position.  He is strong and just needs to polish up some of his skill sets but is easily in the running for top tackle this year.

Louisville OT Mekhi Becton

Mekhi Becton – Louisville 6-7 369

– Huge man (good luck getting around him)
– Strong but raw
– Athletic and nimble on his feet for his size
– Huge reach and wing span
– Body control and balance

– Size. Can he keep his weight in check to be his most effective self
– Technique is still raw and can use some polishing

Becton is my favorite tackle in the class. He needs to improve his technique and won’t be able to bully college competition with just his size like he did but he showed growth in this technique and I believe it is coming along nicely making him a intriguing player to anchor your LT for 10 plus years.

Georgia OT Andrew Thomas

Andrew Thomas – Georgia 6-5 320

– Powerful and strong
– Fires out of stance
– Heavy hands and a strong punch
– Smart pre snap
– Looks the part
– Consistent

– Hand placement can be to high
– Can panic  when beat By speed rushers
– Can be to aggressive on the field

Thomas has the most experience at LT out of the big 4. He needs to work on his hand placement and make sure he doesn’t get flagged for being to aggressive on the field. You are going to get a solid year in year out high production left tackle with this kid.

Houston OT Josh Jones

Josh Jones – Houston 6-5 311

– Ideal size
– Shows good mobility and athletic ability
– Improved as a run blocker
– Shows good strike variations
– Shows foot speed to keep pace with rushers
– Has ability to take advantage of leverages and angles
– Experience player
– Impressive senior bowl week

– Technical growth
– Hands can be to low
– Allows opponents to get into his frame
– Show more pop and stun power
– Football IQ?

Jones impressed at the senior bowl week making him rise up boards. He has all the skills, size, strength and athletic ability to be an elite LT. He needs to work on the fundamentals and develop a bit more. He has a chance to go late 1st to a team who missed on the top 4 big tackles prospects.

Boise St. OT Ezra Cleveland

Ezra Cleveland – Boise State 6-6 310

– Great mobility and uses it well on speed rushers
– Works good in zone scheme
– Range in space
– Keeps feet and hips engaged during blocks
– Mirror ability
– 3 year starter
– Effective punch

– Lacks overall strength
– Can look to create more power in his punch and drive people in the run game
– Could struggle against bull rush
– Not a mauler
– Effective and consistent but never dominated on tape

Cleveland needs to build up his strength and find the fire in his belly to become a mean man on the line and reach his full potential. He has the athletic ability and experience to match defenders and block them well. He may work best in a zone scheme at the next level.

TCU OT Lucas Niang

Lucas Niang – TCU 6-7 328

– Big and athletic
– Powerful blocker
– Shows good lateral movement skills and ability to work in space
– Rolls his hips into contact
– Accelerates feet to create movement in the run game
– Good awareness in pass protection
– Scheme versatile

– Foot work needs an overhaul to reach his set point
– Can open hips to soon allowing a rush lane to open
– Build a better base to hold defenders longer
– Needs to build his lower half some
– Watch weight in mid section

Niang is a big man who packs a punch on the line.  He versatile and moves well for this size to play multiple schemes. To reach his full potential he must work on his foot work and body control  to get the most out of his power and skills.

USC OT Austin Jackson

Austin Jackson  – USC 6-6 310

– Foot speed to get out of his stance quick
– Speed to handle speed rushers
– Quick punch and effective in pass blocking
– Can work well in zone
– 2 year starter at LT
– Body has room to develop more strength and fill out more

– Can be more of a positional blocker needing angles to aid him
– Doesn’t push defender back as much as you want in the run game
– Can get to top heavy at times
– Needs to play with better bend and power
– Lower body strength is lacking
– Footwork as a pass blocker needs work

Jackson looks the part and has the body to grow more into the position.  He needs to work on his overall strength and footwork technique to become more NFL ready. His tape can be inconsistent at times and hope it can be change than being stuck in his ways.

Georgia OT Isaiah Wilson

Isaiah Wilson – Georgia 6-7 340

– Massive man with some good explosion
– Has the power in the run game
– He punches hard and the defender will feel it
– Shown improvement in the pass game
– Has some great moments just moving and stopping great rushers

– Inconsistent hand placement
– Improve his timing
– Tightness in his lower half
– Awareness in pass protection is inconsistent
– Footwork still needs work

2 year starter at RT. He shows great blend of size power and mobility.  When Wilson is on he could be the best tackle on the field. The power alone will make defenders not want to face him for 60 minutes. He must continue to work on his technique and foot work to be more consistent on tape.

Auburn OT Prince Tega Wanogho

Prince Tega Wanogho – Auburn 6-5 307

– Springy into his pass sets
– Athletic with a basketball background
– Shines as a pass blocker
– Shows ability to recover quick
– Used as a puller in the run game

– Still raw and learning the game
– Lower half is a bit small
– Smaller legs helps his speed but lacks power
– Doesn’t pack the punch you want
– Defenders are able to shred from him due to his lack in power
– Needs to learn to finish blocks

Still raw and learning. Wanogho has a lot of tools teams will like. They will need to make him stronger and teach him to use his size to his advantage.  His athletic ability will allow him to start early and mirror defenders. He is a good Day 2 tackle for a team waiting to address the need.

2020 ROOKIE IDP Mock Draft (Round 2)

2020 Fantasy Football ROOKIE IDP Mock Draft (Round 2)
Chris Robin

Round 1 of the Rookie IDP mock draft.

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!

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!


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.
