Tua Tagovailoa NFL Draft

2020 NFL Mock Draft | Collaborative

January 8, 2020

The Mock Draft, the stable of the Pre-Draft Process. While some analysts or writers hate doing mock drafts we embrace them because it’s what got us hooked on the draft and it’s always one of the most popular and most discussed things you can do. Here at NFL Draft Geek this is our calling card and we will be providing you a new mock draft on a weekly basis leading up to the 2020 NFL Draft dropping each Tuesday during the NFL season. For this edition I’ve utilized Tankathon’s draft order which gives us a listing of what the order based after the wildcard round and did alternating picks between Brian and Logan. Let us know what you think of our 2020 NFL Mock Draft.

Notable Picks

3. Detroit Lions: Jeffrey Okudah CB Ohio State

With the Joe Burrow to the Bengals and Chase Young to the Redskins the draft realistically starts at three with Detroit. This pick could go in a variety of different directions as the Lions could see a team trade up to get a quarterback or having them stay and just take the best available prospect. If they do stay the player to keep an eye on is Okudah. While in New England Matt Patricia enjoyed a secondary that had multiple high end cornerbacks. Okudah would join Darius Slay and nickel cornerback Justin Coleman giving the Lions one of the best cornerback trios in the league.

6. Los Angeles Chargers: Justin Herbert QB Oregon

The Chargers were a huge disappointment this season as many saw them as a legitimate threat to make the Super Bowl out of the AFC. While injuries on both sides of the all definitely played a roll the Chargers simply cannot ignore the play of their long time franchise quarterback Phillip Rivers. Always a bit of a gunslinger Rivers threw the second most interceptions in a season for his career while also seeing his touchdowns drop from 32 to 23. At 38 years old LA needs to start looking for Rivers’ successor. Justin Herbert is far from a finished product as his decision making can be very perplexing at times but the former Oregon Duck has unlimited arm talent and above average athleticism making.

12. Oakland Raider: Jerry Jeudy WR Alabama

Jon Gruden has publicly said that Carr will be the Raiders’ quarterback going forward and whether this ends up being the case or not; whoever is their starter next year is going to need more help. Darren Waller has blossomed into an excellent pass catcher at the tight end position but Oakland lacks any other difference makers in the passing game. Jerry Jeudy is in the running to be the top wide receiver taken in the 2020 draft and rightfully so. He runs excellent routes, has great speed and is an absolute monster after the catch. Adding him to an offense that already has budding stars in Waller and Josh Jacobs would create a very nice core moving forward.

21. Philadelphia Eagles: KJ Hamler WR Penn State

Philadelphia’s offense started off with a bang in 2019 as Desean Jackson providing the Eagles with a true downfield threat to compliment Alshon Jeffery. The problem is that Jackson got hurt shortly after and the element of the passing attack went away. Looking to replace Jackson the Eagles could turn to the draft and target Penn State’s Hamler. A breakout star of the 2019 college football season Hamler used his elite speed and elusiveness to reel off big plays week in and week out.

25. Tennessee Titans: Jordan Love QB Utah State

Heading into the offseason, the Titans are in an interesting quarterback situation as starter Ryan Tannehil and former starter Marcus Mariota are both going to be free agents. Tannehill will be the Titans quarterback next year and will either be franchised or a deal will be worked out. That being said the Titans could use this opportunity to find their future quarterback as well. Jordan Love is not a finished product but has shown flashes of brilliance during his tenure at Utah State and a team like the Titans who don’t need a day one starter could look to take him and groom him under Tannehill to eventually replace the veteran starter.
