Live Mock Completed!


1 Cincinnati
Joe Burrow
LSU
QB
Reach/Value:
-1
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
221
Joe Burrow NFL Draft photo
The Bengals HAVE to take Burrow. Not only does this team need a quarterback, it needs a direction --a leader, a face of the franchise. Burrow is that player. In 2019, Joe was the most improved QB vs AP-ranked teams, leading all draft-eligible passers with a 82.5% completion rate.

2 Washington
Chase Young
Ohio State
EDGE
Reach/Value:
+1
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
265
Chase Young NFL Draft photo
The Redskins will certainly be tempted by a trade, as the team has quite a few holes on its depth chart. They will, in the end, elect to select Young, an elite prospect who ironically plays at a position of strength for the Redskins.

3 LA Chargers (Live Mock Trade)
Tua Tagovailoa
Alabama
QB
Reach/Value:
-1
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
218
Tua Tagovailoa NFL Draft photo
The Chargers sat patiently through free agency and watched the QBs go by, but they were not patient on Draft Day. Tua is a high-ceiling, high-risk QB of the future as the Bolts make a bid for the fickle hearts and minds of LA.

4 Carolina (Live Mock Trade)
Isaiah Simmons
Clemson
S
Reach/Value:
+1
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
225
Isaiah Simmons NFL Draft photo
The Panthers have a lot of needs to fill, but Isaiah Simmons is absolutely worth the trade. For a team that isn't necessarily looking to be a Super Bowl contender in 2020, this represents a chance to secure a centerpiece of the Panthers defense for the next decade.

5 Miami
Justin Herbert
Oregon
QB
Reach/Value:
-4
Height:
6'6"
Weight:
225
Justin Herbert NFL Draft photo
The Dolphins get their QB. Adam Schefter says Miami might not be all in on Tua, so it makes sense for Miami to stay at #5 and take whichever QB falls. Herbert will have time to acclimatize to the NFL behind Fitzmagic.

6 Detroit (Live Mock Trade)
Jeffrey Okudah
Ohio State
CB
Reach/Value:
+0
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
200
Jeffrey Okudah NFL Draft photo
As often speculated, the Lions did find a trade partner in the Los Angeles Chargers and moved down from #3 to #6 overall. The move helped both teams, as Detroit acquired more draft picks (Los Angeles's 37th and 186th overall), while also grabbing a player often mocked to them, Ohio State's Jeffrey Okudah. Okudah will provide instantaneous lockdown defense on his side of the field.

7 NY Giants (Live Mock Trade)
Tristan Wirfs
Iowa
OT
Reach/Value:
+0
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
320
Tristan Wirfs NFL Draft photo
No surprise here. The Iowa OT has been linked to the Giants in mocks for months now. He'll provide much-improved protection for QB Daniel Jones, allowing more time to find WRs. Saquon? Say gone!

8 Arizona
Jedrick Wills
Alabama
OT
Reach/Value:
-14
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
316
Jedrick Wills NFL Draft photo
Wills will solidify the Right side of the Offensive Line, which will further propel the Cardinals offense in 2020. Kyler Murray and Kenyan Drake will have improved production running on Wills side and Murray will have more time in the pocket to show off his arm. Eventually, Wills may move to the left side, but he'll start where he played in Alabama.

9 Jacksonville
Derrick Brown
Auburn
DL1T
Reach/Value:
+4
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
326
Derrick Brown NFL Draft photo
Derrick Brown stands atop the D-line class. I'm a huge fan! Extremely quick for his size, Brown has a great ability to push his way into the offensive backfield and wreak havoc. He will have an immediate impact. The last two seasons at manning the Auburn D-Line, Brown tallied 102 tackles, 22 tackles for loss, and 8.5 sacks.

10 Cleveland
Andrew Thomas
Georgia
OT
Reach/Value:
-4
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
320
Andrew Thomas NFL Draft photo
Thomas could be top tackle I've seen in a few years. His LSU tape was up and down but other than that, he looks like an NFL left tackle. Plays with outstanding leverage, knee bend, and a flat back. He's PFF's 2nd-graded SEC OT in the run game. The run on OTs continues.

11 Miami (Live Mock Trade)
Mekhi Becton
Louisville
OT
Reach/Value:
-2
Height:
6'7"
Weight:
355
Mekhi Becton NFL Draft photo
The Fins desperately needed to come out of RD1 with an OT. It was necessary to trade up to get one of the top 4 guys in this year's class. Becton may have the highest upside of all and should slide in on the left side of Miami's O-Line.

12 Las Vegas
C.J. Henderson
Florida
CB
Reach/Value:
-4
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
204
C.J. Henderson NFL Draft photo
There are potentially two handfuls of WRs that have potential to be a WR1, and maybe only a couple of prospects capable of being an immediate starter at CB. Especially with the Apple deal falling through, the need to find someone to line up opposite Trayvon Mullen is the greatest before the start of the Draft. With no pass-catcher taken, we're taking our chances that one we like will be there at #19.

13 San Francisco (Traded Pick)
Henry Ruggs III
Alabama
WR
Reach/Value:
-4
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
188
Henry Ruggs III NFL Draft photo
Making Ruggs the first WR off the board may raise some eyebrows, but his lightning speed, strong hands and better than you think route running make him the perfect complement to Deebo Samuel and George Kittle. Ruggs won't be a target monster, but his ability to threaten defenses at all three levels will make him a valuable cog in the 49ers' offense.

14 Tampa Bay
Josh Jones
Houston
OT
Reach/Value:
-18
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
319
Josh Jones NFL Draft photo
Jones is a reach, and the Bucs entertained several offers to trade down into the 20's, but Brady needs a Right Tackle to stay upright, and to keep hiis offense humming. Not a place to gamble.

15 Denver
Jerry Jeudy
Alabama
WR
Reach/Value:
+4
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
192
Jerry Jeudy NFL Draft photo
The emergence of Courtland Sutton and the continued development of Drew Lock are given a huge boost. The Broncos wait patiently and were absolotuley gifted with Alabama's Jerry Jeudy at pick 15. With this pick, Denver now has Lock, Sutton, Lindsay, Freeman, Fant, Hamilton, and now Jeudy. Pretty impressive offense and with the youth, theyll only get better.

16 Atlanta
Javon Kinlaw
South Carolina
DL3T
Reach/Value:
+8
Height:
6'6"
Weight:
302
Javon Kinlaw NFL Draft photo
Brady, Brees, and Bridgewater...The Killer Bs of the South need a clean pocket. Putting Kinlaw next to Grady Jarrett is a no-brainer if he's available at Pick #16. Crushing the pocket should help coverage on the back end. Chaisson would've been a nice pick-up here, but there wasn't a cornerback worth taking at #16.

17 Baltimore (Live Mock Trade)
CeeDee Lamb
Oklahoma
WR
Reach/Value:
+7
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
189
CeeDee Lamb NFL Draft photo
Ravens wanted a big, playmaking WR to surround MVP Lamar Jackson. CeeDee Lamb's draft slide made it affordable to go up and get him. EDC being aggressive to get the player they want.

18 New England (Live Mock Trade)
Jordan Love
Utah State
QB
Reach/Value:
-6
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
225
Jordan Love NFL Draft photo
It has been 20 years since the Patriots were seriously needy for a quarterback. They trade their 23rd-overall pick and their 87th-overall pick to the Jets to go get their quarterback of the future in Utah State's Jordan Love. Patriots are in a bit of a rebuild, but getting the heir to Brady is huge in that process.

19 Tennessee (Live Mock Trade)
K'Lavon Chaisson
LSU
EDGE
Reach/Value:
+7
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
238
K'Lavon Chaisson NFL Draft photo
The draft always has random trades that no one sees coming. The Titans are excited to trade up and get the second-best Edge rusher after Chase Young. The Titans are going all-in after a trip to the AFC Championship, and Chaisson gives them an every-down edge rusher to replace the departing Cameron Wake.

20 Jacksonville (Traded Pick)
Austin Jackson
USC
OT
Reach/Value:
-26
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
322
Austin Jackson NFL Draft photo
Jacksonville gets Jackson. The Jaguars get the last of the RD1 OTs in a mock-toppling demand position this year. Jackson ran a 5.07 forty recently at 305 pounds, displaying athleticism to go with agile feet --perfect for development, as the Jags return 10 of 11 starters.

21 Philadelphia
Justin Jefferson
LSU
WR
Reach/Value:
-7
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
202
Justin Jefferson NFL Draft photo
Welp, just as the Eagles may find themselves in April, I found myself in No-Man's-Land at #21, unable to trade up, and not at an attractive spot to lure those behind me to allow me to trade back. So, I had to play it safe with WR Justin Jefferson. Jefferson is not the outside burner Philly fans crave, but he's an outstanding slot WR, with traits that should allow him to develop on the outside in time.

22 Minnesota (Traded Pick)
Denzel Mims
Baylor
WR
Reach/Value:
-29
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
197
Denzel Mims NFL Draft photo
The Vikings need to replace Stefon Diggs. Waiting until later is an option, but it is risky. It is better to get one of the hottest receivers in this draft with tons of potential. Mims ws 6'2.7", 207 with 33 7/8" arms. He ran a 4.38 forty, had a 38.5" vertical jump, 10'11' broad jump, and a ridiculous 6.66 3-cone. He is a stud!

23 NY Jets (Live Mock Trade)
Laviska Shenault
Colorado
WR
Reach/Value:
-7
Height:
6'1''
Weight:
227
Laviska Shenault NFL Draft photo
The Jets trade down twice, nab an additional 2nd (56) and 3rd (87) and fill a need in the shape of Laviska Shenault, WR, Colorado. With the departure of Anderson and uncertainty over Quincy Enunwa, taking a WR here makes a lot of sense. Shenalt has a few injury concerns, but he has great size and a fantastic skillset that should help Sam Darnold. The 2 additional picks in the Top 100 should really help, too.

24 New Orleans
Jalen Reagor
TCU
WR
Reach/Value:
-21
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
195
Jalen Reagor NFL Draft photo
As great as Michael Thomas has been, the Saints have gotten little production from their other WRs. The fast, sure-handed, and dynamic Reagor should be a great complement to the All-Pro playmaker. Reagor's drop in production last season should not worry Saints fans. According to PFF, only 30.7% of the passes thrown were on-target passes. Give Reagor an accurate passer like Brees and he will excell. He's got 4.3 speed and game-breaking ability after the catch.

25 Las Vegas (Live Mock Trade)
Tee Higgins
Clemson
WR
Reach/Value:
+5
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
216
Tee Higgins NFL Draft photo
Well, that was a whirlwind. Seeing the trio of top WRs coming off the board, we made an effort to trade up to #17 to grab CeeDee Lamb, but Dallas' phone lines were jammed (still pissed about being stuck with Cooper, perhaps). So, at #19, I liked several options roughly equally, and felt like one would be there at #29... until they started flying off the board. Then, with Tee Higgins --under consideration at #19-- still there at #25, I moved back up. The Clemson product may not be as ready to be a WR1 as the top 3, but he's a stud with a high ceiling. Overall, the wheeling and dealing results in picks #12, #19, #80, #81, #91, #121, and #159 turning into picks #12, #25, #61, #80, #105, #121, #154, and #159. With the top 2 needs of the draft covered, the Raiders still have 3 picks on Day 2 to do significant damage --with WR Brandon Aiyuk, QB Jalen Hurts, and LB Willie Gay, three prospects I'd love to see added to the Silver & Black. For anyone curious, I made a board for the Raiders prior to the mock. Henderson was 7th, and Higgins was 13th.

26 Green Bay (Live Mock Trade)
Xavier McKinney
Alabama
S
Reach/Value:
+11
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
196
Xavier McKinney NFL Draft photo
The Packers found a gem in Darnell Savage in the 2019 Draft but Adrian Amos is a band-aid at best. With arguably the best safety still on the board, the Packers give up a third and trade up to go get McKinney to give them one of the best and youthful safety tandems in the entire league.

27 Dallas (Live Mock Trade)
Yetur Gross-Matos
Penn State
EDGE
Reach/Value:
+8
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
262
Yetur Gross-Matos NFL Draft photo
After wheeling and dealing, Cuzzin Jerruh collects a RD2 and RD4 from Baltimore for #17, then trades both RD2 selections to get back into RD1 for back-to-back choices. EDGE Yetur Gross-Matos eases the pain of losing Robert Quinn to Chicago and double-up if Aldon Smith and Randy Gregory experience any delays in their reinstatement attempts.

28 Dallas (Live Mock Trade)
Trevon Diggs
Alabama
CB
Reach/Value:
+10
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
205
Trevon Diggs NFL Draft photo
With the Baltimore RD1 selection, the Dallas F/O knew they could not wait with hope for a CB prospect, as they traded both RD2 selections to get back into RD1. Diggs is solid and will eventually challenge for a starting position.

29 Minnesota (Live Mock Trade)
A.J. Epenesa
Iowa
DL5T
Reach/Value:
+3
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
275
A.J. Epenesa NFL Draft photo
A.J. Epenesa earned an 87.8 PFF pass-rushing grade across his 450 pass-rushing snaps and recorded 58 total pressures in 2019. He received second-team Associated Press All-American and had 49 tackles, 14.5 for loss, and 11.5 sacks along with four forced fumbles in 13 starts.

30 Miami (Live Mock Trade)
D'Andre Swift
Georgia
RB
Reach/Value:
-7
Height:
5'9"
Weight:
215
D'Andre Swift NFL Draft photo
With the selection of D'Andre Swift, the Dolphins have secured their three main positional targets in RD1. Swift will be paired with the recently-acquired Jordan Howard to land a nice one-two punch in Miami. Swift is a powerful runner with great vision and is dynamic as a pass-catcher.

31 San Francisco
Cesar Ruiz
Michigan
OC
Reach/Value:
+2
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
307
Cesar Ruiz NFL Draft photo
The Niners could field offers here, or opt for one of the sliding CB, but ultimately, shoring up the interior O-Line takes precedence. Ruiz should win the starter's job at RG as a rookie, and his experience at Center makes him a valuable backup to the oft-injured Weston Richberg.

32 Minnesota (Live Mock Trade)
Kristian Fulton
LSU
CB
Reach/Value:
+5
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
197
Kristian Fulton NFL Draft photo
The Vikings trade back into the first round to secure help at cornerback. LSU's Fulton was overshadowed in the 2019 season by Derek Stingley, but played superbly nonetheless. Staying in the first round gives the Vikings a 5th-year option on Fulton.
