2020 3 RD Mock w/ trades and explanations where needed

Recommended Posts

ROUND 1

1. Cincinnati Bengals – Joe Burrow QB LSU

2. Washington Redskins – Chase Young EDGE Ohio State

*TRADE*

To DET: 6th ovr, 37th ovr, 2021 3rd rd pick, 2021 6th rd pick

To LAC: 3rd ovr, 2021 5th rd pick

3. Los Angeles Chargers (from DET) – Tua Tagovailoa QB Alabama

LA seems to be the most likely landing spot of Tom Brady but is a very short term fix. With Tua's injury's, sitting for a year would be extremely beneficial. This gives another shot in the arm to a franchise in need of a boost for their overall fanbase.

4. New York Giants – Jeffery Okudah CB Ohio State

As a Giants fan, this is who I want if he is on the board here. They couldn't cover a soul on 3rd down. Baker and Love came on more towards the end of the year. Love should be the slot with Baker and Okudah on the outside.

5. Miami Dolphins – Andrew Thomas OT Georgia

Tua is gone and Miami is fine with it. This draft becomes the "build for Lawrence or Fields draft" by default.

6. Detroit Lions (from LAC) – Isaiah Simmons LB/S Clemson

Patricia is going to have a lot of fun with all the things you can do with Simmons and his skill set. Carolina will be in play to potentially trade ahead of them with Miami to land him.

7. Carolina Panthers – Derrick Brown IDL Auburn

8. Arizona Cardinals – Tristan Wirfs OT Iowa

*TRADE*

To JAX: 11th ovr, 79th ovr

To NYJ: 9th ovr, 2021 4th rd pick

9. New York Jets (from JAX) – Jedrick Wills OT Alabama

Its a short distance to travel to leap ahead of Cleveland to land one of the best OT's in the draft. Protecting Sam Darnold is priority #1

10. Cleveland Browns – Mekhi Becton OT Louisville

May be a desperate move, but Becton is the most likely riser of all the OT's and Cleveland can not leave Mayfield hanging out to dry. 

11. Jacksonville Jaguars (from NYJ) – Kristian Fulton CB LSU

I do not think WR is as big of need as people think to not use their first pick to land a top DB, especially after acquiring an extra pick in the trade down.

12. Las Vegas Raiders – CeeDee Lamb WR Oklahoma

13. Indianapolis Colts – Jordan Love QB Utah State

The biggest riser at QB and the Colts do not need to move up to get the one they are the highest on. 

14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – K’Lavon Chaisson EDGE LSU

15. Denver Broncos – Jerry Jeudy WR Alabama

16. Atlanta Falcons – AJ Epenesa EDGE Iowa

17. Dallas Cowboys – Grant Delpit S LSU

*TRADE*

To MIA: 21st ovr, 85th ovr

To PHI: 18th ovr, 148th ovr

18. Philadelphia Eagles (from MIA via PIT) – Henry Ruggs III WR Alabama

Eagles need speed and need a legit WR on their roster. They will likely not have Aghalor or Alshon going into 2020 season so filling the WR position is even more of a necessity.

19. Las Vegas Raiders (from CHI) – Kenneth Murray ILB Oklahoma

20. Jacksonville Jaguars (from LAR) – Laviska Shenault Jr. WR Colorado

A different type of WR that a lot of teams will covet the closer we get to draft day. Despite it not being the biggest need, this opens up to move another WR on the roster for more capital.

21. Miami Dolphins (from PHI) – D’Andre Swift RB Georgia

22. Buffalo Bills – Javon Kinlaw IDL Florida State

23. New England Patriots – Justin Herbert QB Oregon

Tom Brady is likely gone and this is a dream situation even if they sign a bridge QB like Dalton.

24. New Orleans Saints – Patrick Queen LB LSU

25. Minnesota Vikings – Trevon Diggs CB Alabama

26. Miami Dolphins (from HOU) – Yetur Gross-Matos EDGE Penn State

27. Seattle Seahawks – Neville Gallimore IDL Oklahoma

28. Baltimore Ravens – Terrell Lewis EDGE Alabama

*TRADE*

To TEN: 35th ovr, 99th ovr

To DET: 29th ovr

29. Detroit Lions (from TEN) – CJ Henderson CB Florida

Picked up extra draft capital in the previous trade down which allows them to trade up to land a 5th year option on a position of need.

30. Green Bay Packers – Tee Higgins WR Clemson

*TRADE*

To KC: 39th ovr, 85th ovr

To MIA: 31st ovr, 2021 4th rd pick

31. Miami Dolphins (from KC) – Xavier McKinney S Alabama

Grab another 5th year option to build up the team. KC willing trade partners as they are one of the teams in cap hell and will need more draft picks to fill holes.

32. San Francisco 49ers – Nick Harris IOL Washington

 

ROUND 2

33. Cincinnati Bengals – Austin Jackson OT USC

If Jackson can't play RT, Jonah Williams can definitely play it, and now you have both ends covered to protect Burrow.

34. Indianapolis Colts (from WAS) – Tyler Biadasz IOL Wisconsin

Will immediately play RG and complete the most incredible OL in the league (Smith, Biadasz, Kelly, Nelson, Costanzo) to protect their new QB Jordan Love

35. Tennessee Titans (from DET) – Julian Okwara EDGE Notre Dame

Correa was good but Okwara is an upgrade. Okwara could jump into the top 25 if he blows up the combine and his workouts.

36. New York Giants – Josh Jones OT Houston

They grabbed a DB at 4 in Okudah, they will likely fill EDGE in FA (Clowney, Yannick, or other) so they need to move to the trenches. Trading up for Murray or Queen is possible if hey slip further then they do in this mock.

37. Detroit Lions (from LAC) – Donovan Peoples-Jones WR Michigan

Adding youth to their WR corps is essential. Golladay gets a long term partner.

38. Carolina Panthers – Jeff Gladney CB TCU

39. Kansas City Chiefs (from MIA) – Raekwon Davis IDL Alabama

40. Arizona Cardinals – Curtis Weaver EDGE Boise State

41. Cleveland Browns – Antoine Winfield Jr. S Minnesota

Winfield is going to be a big riser and after passing on Delpit at #10, they fill the need on the backend now.

42. Jacksonville Jaguars – Ashtyn Davis S California

Another starting DB, allowing Harrison to play closer to the line.

43. Chicago Bears (from LVR) – Netane Muti IOL Fresno State

Long retired opening up a major need at Guard. Whitehair can move to RG if Muti ends up looking like a better C.

44. Indianapolis Colts – Justin Jefferson WR LSU

Hilton is really the only guy they got. Funchess didn't work out, Campbell didn't really do much, Pascal looked good but a true #2 is needed. 

45. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Jacob Eason QB Washington

Winston may very well be brought back but doesn't really change that Jameis doesn't look like the guy who can win a Super Bowl. Eason has raw tools and the QB Whisperer could be the missing piece.

46. Denver Broncos – Damon Arnette CB Ohio State

47. Atlanta Falcons – Solomon Kindley IOL Georgia

48. New York Jets – Jalen Reager WR TCU

49. Pittsburgh Steelers – Jonathan Greenard EDGE Florida

50. Chicago Bears – Cole Kmet TE Notre Dame

51. Dallas Cowboys – Bryce Hall CB Virginia

Dallas will likely put their cap into Dak and Amari so their defensive FA's (Jones, Brown, etc.) will likely all hit the market.

52. Los Angeles Rams – Trey Adams OT Washington

53. Philadelphia Eagles – Jaylon Johnson CB Utah

54. Buffalo Bills – Anfernee Jennings LB/EDGE Alabama

Can play Off Ball and Pass Rush, much like Lorenzo Alexander who is currently 68 yrs old.

55. Atlanta Falcons (from NE) – AJ Terrell CB Clemson

56. Miami Dolphins (from NO) – Jake Fromm QB Georgia

Fromm had 1st round buzz but started to tumble during this past college season. Grabbing him here, given the amount of draft capital they have, is low risk for the Dolphins.

57. Houston Texans – JK Dobbins RB Ohio State

Hyde quietly had a great year but is he a long term back? SF, JAX, and KC did not think so.

58. Minnesota Vikings – Cesar Ruiz IOL Michigan

*TRADE*

To SEA: 67th ovr, 2021 3rd rd pick

To DET: 59th ovr, 2021 5th rd pick

59. Detroit Lions (from SEA) – Jonathan Taylor RB Wisconsin

RBs will likely drop and I believe the 3rd RB off will be one that is traded up for.

60. Baltimore Ravens – Denzel Mims WR Baylor

61. Tennessee Titans – Lucas Niang OT TCU

Conklin will probably be gone and will need to fill that hole.

62. Green Bay Packers – Nick Coe DL Auburn

290lbs with good pass rushing skills but the size to play 3-4 DE. 3rd down packages could be Preston, Gary, Coe, Zadarius.....pray for Trubisky.

63. Kansas City Chiefs – Cameron Dantzler CB Missisippi State

64. Seattle Seahawks (from SF) – KJ Hamler WR Penn State

Josh Gordon's personal issues have made WR a need for Seattle and this is a strong class.

 

ROUND 3

65. Cincinnati Bengals – KJ Hill WR Ohio State

Why bother bringing back AJ Green. Spread the money out to cover depth at OL, DL, and LB instead.

66. Washington Redskins – Brycen Hopkins TE Purdue

Reed is always injured and you need some type of consistent weaponry on the field for Haskins.

67. Seattle Seahawks (from DET) – Darrell Taylor EDGE Tennessee

Even if they resign Clowney, getting a solid pass rusher is still necessary. LJ Collier could slide to DT on 3rd downs to get Taylor on the field. 

68. New York Jets – Hunter Bryant TE Washington

69. Carolina Panthers – Jalen Hurts QB Oklahoma

Is Cam going to stay healthy? Is Cam going to get traded (Chicago?)? The threat of Hurts/McCaffery/Samuel/Moore sounds legit.

70. Miami Dolphins – Robert Hunt IOL Ole Miss

71. Los Angeles Chargers – Prince Tega-Wanogho OT Auburn

Protect your QB.....PROTECT.....THE.....QB!!!

72. Arizona Cardinals – Leki Fotu IDL Utah

Big size NT will be a Day 1 starter. 

73. Jacksonville Jaguars – Albert Okwuegbunam TE Missouri

If he came out last year he might have been the 3rd TE off the board but drops after a not so great season. 

74. Cleveland Browns – Troy Dye LB Oregon

Injury causes him to drop. Browns are going to losing Schobert most likely which makes LB a definite hole to fill.

75. Indianapolis Colts – Ross Blacklock IDL TCU

76. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Isaiah Wilson OT Georgia

77. Denver Broncos – K’Von Wallace S Clemson

78. Atlanta Falcons – Thaddeus Moss TE LSU

Unreal potential, Hooper could be out but even if he isn't, Moss could still find ways to get on the field.

79. Jacksonville Jaguars (from NYJ) – Kenny Willekes EDGE Michigan State

Josh Allen was great. Campbell is great but older and carries a big cap number. This is something that can benefit the defensive front 4 greatly on 3rd down (Allen, Bryan, Campbell, Willekes)

80. Las Vegas Raiders – Alton Robinson EDGE Syracuse

81. Las Vegas Raiders (from CHI) – Rashard Lawrence IDL LSU

Building a strong defensive front 4 is something Gruden has been talking about since trading Khalil Mack. They went from the thinnest DL in football to being fairly deep (Crosby, Ferrell, Lawrence, Robinson, Lawrence, Key, Mayowa, Hall, and Hankins) and inexpensive while full of upside.

82. Dallas Cowboys – Devin Duvernay WR Texas

83. Denver Broncos (from PIT) – Malik Harrison LB Ohio State

84. Los Angeles Rams – Justin Madubuike IDL Texas A&M

85. Kansas City Chiefs (from MIA via PHI) – Brandon Jones S Texas

86. Buffalo Bills – Brandon Aiyuk WR Arizona State

87. New England Patriots – Lloyd Cushenberry III IOL LSU

88. New Orleans Saints – Tyler Johnson WR Minnesota

89. Minnesota Vikings – Darnay Holmes CB UCLA

90. Cleveland Browns (from SEA) – Ben Bredeson IOL Michigan

91. Las Vegas Raiders (from HOU) – Noah Igbinoghene CB Auburn

92. Baltimore Ravens – Evan Weaver ILB California

93. Tennessee Titans – Anthony McFarland RB Maryland

94. Green Bay Packers – Colby Parkinson TE Stanford

95. Kansas City Chiefs – Matt Hennessy IOL Temple

96. Denver Broncos (from SF) – Larrell Murchison IDL NC State

Jaguars have a massive need for big guys. We have issues on the OL, no interior as it sits unless Dareus is retained besides depth guys, and we may be losing Yannick Ngakoue.

We better be going big guy with 2/3 of the early picks unless serious help is brought in via FA.

I wouldnt trade up for ruggs. too many good receivers in the draft and we need a lot of young guys.

in this scenario i would go Kinlaw at 9 with Henderson at 20. then go with Arnette(CB is a bigger weakness at the moment then safety) and then go with Blalock and Cushenberry to shore up the trenches. 

gives the jags a nice Young DL of Kinlaw-Bryan-Blalock-Allen if Dareus, Ngakoue, campbell are all let go but dareus and campbell are the 2 im thinking are gonna be restructures or gone and ngakoue would be a likely tag and trade at worst. 

a coverage set of Henderson and Bouye(could be cut/restructured)/Herndon at CB and hayden at NB would look fairly good. 

Cushenberry could take Center or RG with Linder playing the other(however the team feels.

I'd absolutely do that deal he has there. Moving down a couple rounds for Ruggs sign me up ASAP.

You want to see the city of Miami on fire don't you? xD

With the board falling the way you have, Miami would be better off trading down from #5. Trade with a flashy team like Cleveland for their 2021 2nd and 2020 4th. 

1. Mekhi Becton OT Louisville

1b. Justin Herbert QB Oregon - I could understand the front office being afraid of Tua's hip, but they're not passing up on their #2 QB and the chance to ruin New England's plans. 

1c. Yetur Gross-Matos EDGE Penn State

1d. Xavier McKinney S Alabama - WOW! Four 1st rounders. Is that a record?

2. JK Dobbins RB Ohio State

3. Lloyd Cushenberry III IOL LSU

I don’t think Cleveland drafts a linebacker regardless of Joe Scho, but A+ draft anyways.

Not happening. Plenty of OT talent could fall to 10.

Not a huge fan of this for GB.

In this scenario I’d rather go

1. Biadasz

2. Hamler/Hill

3. DL/LB (Baun/Uche)

 

Im also not sure why the Lions would trade up for a RB when they have Johnson, plus is Badger fans don’t want to see Taylor play for a losing team his entire career 😂

You don't think keeping Green would aid in Burrow's development? I certainly do.

CB in round one and three for the Vikings, yeah, no. One CB is solid, but they aren't drafting two, and IOL is good in round two.

I'd do, keeping some picks intact

1a) Simmons

1b) Josh Jones

1c) YGM

1d) X. McKinney 

2) Dobbins/Ruiz

3) OL/RB

Good with the 1st round pick based off who is still on the board.

Not a fan of round 2. Jk Dobbins, Jonathan Taylor or Denzel Mims would be much better choices and a higher need. 

No issues with  Aiyuk in the 3rd, even if we go WR in round 2.
