2020 NFL Mock Draft



Last update: Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018.
Next update: Occasionally. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

The order of this 2020 NFL Mock Draft is completely random, save for playoff seeding in the 21-32 range. First-round picks from the 2018 NFL Mock Draft and the 2019 NFL Mock Draft have been factored into the picks.

    *** 2020 NFL MOCK DRAFT updated Oct. 13. This mock draft will be updated occasionally. Follow @walterfootball for NFL Draft updates. ***
  1. Denver Broncos: Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 10/20): Jeffery Simmons, DT

    Case Keenum is not the long-term answer for Denver at quarterback. And based on his play thus far in 2018, he doesn't even seem like the short-term answer. I imagine the Broncos will give Chad Kelly a chance at some point, but if he fails, they'll be looking for a quarterback early in the 2020 NFL Draft.

    The hero of the national championship against Georgia, Tua Tagovailoa has a big arm and scrambling ability, and will undoubtedly draw comparisons to Russell Wilson.

  2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 10/20): DeAndre Baker, CB

    The Buccaneers will likely give Jameis Winston one more chance after this year if he fails again. If he has two disappointing seasons in a row, or if he gets into trouble again, it'll be time to find a new franchise quarterback.

    Jake Fromm was tremendous as a rookie for SEC champion Georgia. He has a great skill set and was the very early favorite to be the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. He struggled versus LSU, so hopefully that's not the beginning of a downward trend.

  3. Houston Texans: Trey Smith, OT, Tennessee
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 10/20): Trevon Diggs, CB

    The Texans will need to add some protection for Deshaun Watson so he doesn't suffer the same fate as David Carr.

    Despite being a freshman, Trey Smith was arguably Tennessee's best player in 2017. He was considered a top prospect coming out of high school. He's drawn rave reviews from scouts and should be a top-five pick when he declares.





  4. New England Patriots: Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 10/20): Dre'Mont Jones, DT

    Tom Brady will be 42 during the 2019 season. The Patriots could be drafting in the top five once Brady declines, so they could obtain a stud receiver for their next quarterback (Clayton Thorson, per my 2019 NFL Mock Draft.)

    Jerry Jeudy is a height-weight-speed freak in the mold of a Julio Jones. He's the next great Alabama receiver, and if he performs up to his skill set, he'll have a great chance to be a top-10 pick.

  5. Minnesota Vikings: Walker Little, OT, Stanford
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 10/20): Josh Allen, LB

    The Vikings have major problems on the offensive line, including at left tackle where they desperately need an upgrade.

    Walker Little was the 25th-overall player in his recruiting class. An athletic tackle who should be proficient in both pass protection and run blocking, Little could be a top-five pick in the future.



  6. Washington Redskins: A.J. Epenesa, DE, Iowa
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 10/20): N'Keal Harry, WR

    The Redskins could stand to add another edge rusher to play across from Ryan Kerrigan.

    A.J. Epenesa was a five-star recruit who showed some major promise as a freshman, registering 4.5 sacks. He's been excellent in 2018.

  7. San Francisco 49ers: Laviska Shenault, WR, Colorado
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 10/20): Quinnen Williams, DT

    The 49ers need to give Jimmy Garoppolo a No. 1 receiver. They currently lack one, as Pierre Garcon is too old and Marquise Goodwin is too injury-prone.

    Laviska Shenault drew rave reviews during spring practices preceding the 2018 campaign, and he didn't disappoint. The 6-foot-2 play-maker has arguably been college football's best receiver as a mere sophomore.





  8. Seattle Seahawks: Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 10/20): Deionte Thompson, S

    Will the Seahawks finally strengthen their offensive line and give Russell Wilson the protection he deserves? It could happen here, as the 2020 NFL Draft class seems packed with talented blockers.

    Andrew Thomas has been very impressive, using his great athleticism and length. NFL personnel believe he has tremendous potential.

  9. Oakland Raiders: Najee Harris, RB, Alabama
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 10/20): Clelin Ferrell, DE and Tre Lamar, LB

    Jon Gruden values running the ball, but both of his top backs don't have much of a future with the team.

    Najee Harris was one of the top recruits in the country in 2017, and he showed off his talents as a freshman. He's been tremendous again this season.



  10. Indianapolis Colts: Tarik Black, WR, Michigan
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 10/20): Nick Bosa, DE

    It's become clear that Andrew Luck doesn't have any viable receivers to throw to aside from T.Y. Hilton. This must change. Fortunately for the Colts, there appear to be plenty of talented receivers in this class.

    Tarik Black's 2017 season ended prematurely because of a foot injury, but he has thrived this year. He has great size (6-3, 215) and speed.

  11. Miami Dolphins: Jacob Eason, QB, Georgia
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 10/20): Dexter Lawrence, DT

    The Dolphins need to replace Ryan Tannehill, who has never developed into a good starting quarterback.

    Jacob Eason exploded on the scene for Georgia, throwing 16 touchdowns compared to eight interceptions as a freshman in the SEC. Eason still needs to work on his accuracy, but he's young enough to make vast improvements in the near future. Eason has since transferred to Washington, where he'll have a chance to emerge as a top-five pick for the 2020 NFL Draft if he has a big 2019 campaign.

  12. New York Jets: J.K. Dobbins, RB, Ohio State
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 10/20): Montez Sweat, DE

    The Jets have a bunch of mediocre running backs on their roster. Perhaps they'll pursue a true lead back sometime in the near future.

    J.K. Dobbins entered 2017 as a backup, but overtook Mike Weber and had a terrific freshman campaign, showing off his great, explosive running ability.

  13. Jacksonville Jaguars: C.J. Henderson, CB, Florida
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 10/20): Drew Lock, QB

    A.J. Bouye will be owed $13 million per year for the foreseeable future, so the Jaguars may eventually deem him to be too expensive once they have to re-sign other players to contracts.

    CJ Henderson has good height (6-1), but needs to bulk up. He had four interceptions as a freshman. He has some great potential as a former four-star recruit.

  14. Green Bay Packers: Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 10/20): Zach Allen, DE/DT and Jalen Jelks, DE/OLB

    Bryan Bulaga will be a key free agent during the 2020 offseason. He'll be 31 by then, so the Packers may decide to let him go and get younger at the position.

    At 6-7, 340, Mekhi Becton is a massive human being. Despite his size, however, Becton is athletic and flexible.

  15. Buffalo Bills: Ryan Ridley, WR, Georgia
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 10/20): Greg Little, OT

    The Bills need to continue adding to their offense. Kelvin Benjamin has been disappointing, so a new No. 1 receiver is needed.

    A 6-foot-2 play-maker, Riley Ridley had a big game against Alabama in the national championship. He's drawn comparisons to Michael Thomas.

  16. New York Giants: Youhanna Ghaifan, DE/DT, Wyoming
    2019 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 10/20): Justin Herbert, QB

    The Giants are getting pushed around too much on their defensive line, and they need personnel for their new scheme.

    Youhanna Ghaifan was a tremendous interior force as a sophomore, logging seven sacks in 2017. He can fit into both the 4-3 and 3-4.
