Bryce Hall NFL Draft photo
Breaking with his first years with regards to Free Agency, GM Chris Ballard has made the most of the 2020 version for Indianapolis. With the defense now adding premier DT DeForest Buckner and CB Xavier Rhodes, the Colts may now be able to focus on some offensive skill players (WR) and depth for the Offensive Line.

However, in this CMD, my original target for pick #34, Denzel Mims, has already been selected and the remaining choices at WR don't really appeal to me. Therefore, Indy enhances depth at CB. Rhodes won't be around for a super-long time, and Ballard has intimated that there's never enough CB's on the roster.

While the selection of Bryce Hall may appear a bit high, he's well-rounded, versatile, and familiar with playing many defensive coverages during his career for the Cavaliers. Plus, he's physical. Indy needs agressive-tackling CB's who flock to the ball --not just a shut-down corner in press-man.

I will reiterate; don't be surprised if Ballard and the Colts put together a trade offer to move back into RD1 for a shot at one of the top wideouts.

A.J. Terrell NFL Draft photo
In light of Bill O'Brien still being a bad GM for the Texans, I would like to say that WR could now also be in play here for Houston. Specifically, a player like Denzel Mims who is now sorely needed to give Watson a good option to go to on third down. Forgive me if I'm not convinced that Randall Cobb is that guy.

Houston continues to build a depleted defensive backfield by drafting A.J. Terrell, CB from Clemson!

A.J. has what I would like to call "sweet feet", meaning it's hard for even the best route-running WR's to outmaneuver him. He demonstrates a clear ability to stay in the receivers' hip pocket and uses his long arms to jam receivers at the snap. Many of Terrell's interceptions at Clemson came from him just being poised enough to keep his eye on the football and make a play on it. Houston will be able to play him in everything from press-man coverage to deep-third defender in cover-3 zone.

Sammy Watkins does not want to take a pay cut from his $14 million base. Chris Jones will not take less than $20 million a year in an extension. Chiefs are $177.00 under the cap. (That's even less than what I have in my bank account right now.) Something has to give. There's going to be some action in this round for KC. In this mock: TRADE DOWN! Acquire additional picks. Cut the strings on some of our pricier contracts.

LeSean McCoy didn't work. Carlos Hyde didn't get his chance. The Great Dame did not shine until postseason. This is a luxury pick. In RD2, the Chiefs cannot pass up on the best RB in the draft. Breathe easy, folks! We have another pick in this round, plus additional picks in RDs 4 and 6 acquired from Jacksonville in this simulated trade. Veach has the bases covered.

John Simpson NFL Draft photo
The Bears still have a ways to go in rebuilding one of the league's most porous offensive lines, so they head for the deep end of the NCAA talent pool for powerhouse guard John Simpson of Clemson. Simpson is a champion wrestler who has overcome personal obstacles to become a consistent force up front.

He brings size, strength galore - he cranked out 34 bench reps at the Combine - with enough agility and durability to a line that needs all those things. He shows technique and good communication to work with teammates in a cohesive line, excelling on combo blocking when he's not relying on straight strength and aggressiveness. About the only knock on this pick is that he's not an O Tackle.

J.K. Dobbins NFL Draft photo
The Steelers have filled their needs at Guard, Tight End, and D-Line in Free Agency, leaving them open to a "Best Player Available" approach to the draft. This draft has a deep RB class, and the Steelers get a quality player here in the middle of the second. The Steelers like their backs on the bigger side. They also like to pick younger players with multiple years of production from top-level schools.

Dobbins checks all the boxes here, with 725 carries over 3 years for the Buckeyes. He's a pro-ready back who excels both at running the ball and as a receiver. Dobbins has elite body control and balance to go with great field vision. He needs a little work as a blocker, but he has the physicality and finishing attitude to turn that developing skillset into a strength.

Malik Harrison NFL Draft photo
It is not a great year to be targeting linebackers in the draft, but the Rams could potentially go in that direction with their first pick in 2020. Cory Littleton is now a Raider, and the Rams are left with an unproven group that needs reinforcements. Malik Harrison out of Ohio State has been a staple of the Buckeye defense in 2018 and 2019.

Harrison would compete with the rest of the Rams linebacker corps from Day One even as a second-round draft selection. If they do go in another direction with the pick, it will be difficult to find a starting-caliber linebacker in later rounds. Any additional moves made by the Rams that could alter the need for a linebacker will be the only reason Pick #52 won't be a linebacker.

Baun? Pittman? Beane will have run hundreds of simulations and scenarios before this moment on Friday, April 24.

Wouldn't he take Baun here? In 2019, the Bills were 3rd-worst in Missed Tackles. But do you use a third LB in this system that's essentially a 4-2-5? Milano plays WLB and never leaves the field.

Maybe he'd take Pittman, one of my "Pick Six" and Darnold's top target at USC, to give the Bills this year's version of D.K. Metcalf, a name frequently mocked to the Bills last year...and isn't yet on the team. At 6-4, 223 and an intermediate-route DB defeater, Pittman provides the height, wingspan, and 74.3% catch rate that Josh Allen needs. This also gives Josh a one-up on Sam as they train together in California. I have a feeling Beane will let us know which way he's leaning with his next signed free agent. Stay tuned.
