    *** 2020 NFL MOCK DRAFT (2 rounds) updated Sept. 25. This mock draft will be updated occasionally. Check out old versions of this 2020 NFL Mock Draft in the archived mock section. Follow @walterfootball for NFL Draft updates. ***


  1. Miami Dolphins: Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
    It's quite obvious by now that the Dolphins are tanking. Miami acquired Josh Rosen, but that doesn't matter. Teams have selected plenty of first-round quarterbacks after using a pick in the second frame on a signal-caller the year before. The Cardinals even established precedent for doing so with consecutive first-rounders!

    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. New York Jets: Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia
    The Jets are set up well offensively as far as their quarterback and play-makers are concerned, but their offensive line isn't very strong. They would be lucky to land an elite tackle in the 2020 NFL Draft.

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



  3. Cincinnati Bengals: Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon
    The Bengals like Ryan Finley enough to keep him out of the preseason finale. However, if they're in position to select a franchise quarterback, they almost have to do it or trade out of this pick.

    Justin Herbert had an up-and-down 2018 season, which included a great performance against Stanford. He was considered the top quarterback prospect for the 2019 NFL Draft before making the mistake of returning to school, where he'll risk injury and regression.

    Pick change; previously Paulson Adebo, CB





  4. Miami Dolphins: Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama
    The Dolphins will need a receiver to pair with Tua Tagovailoa. Luckily for them, there will be plenty of options in the 2020 NFL Draft, and they currently have two top-five picks in the 2020 NFL 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.

    Pick change; previously Laviska Shenault, WR



  5. Washington Redskins: Chase Young, DE, Ohio State
    The Redskins drafted Montez Sweat in the opening round last year, and they also have Ryan Kerrigan. However, they could stand to add a dynamic edge rusher to put their front seven over the top, which will aid their horrific secondary.

    Chase Young enjoyed a breakout season in the wake of Nick Bosa's injury. He's a very athletic edge player with great size (6-5, 265).

    Pick change; previously Jerry Jeudy, WR





  6. Denver Broncos: Grant Delpit, S, LSU
    The Broncos have some talented cornerbacks, but their safety play can get much better next to Justin Simmons. Luckily for them, there are some skilled safeties available in the 2020 NFL Draft.

    Grant Delpit is an exceptional talent who figures to be a top-10 prospect when he declares.

    Pick change; previously Isaiah Simmons, S



  7. Arizona Cardinals: Derrick Brown, DE/DT, Auburn
    The Cardinals have needed a strong presence on the defensive line ever since losing Calais Campbell to the Jaguars. Here's a great replacement for Campbell.

    Derrick Brown has great size (6-5, 316) and tons of upside. He can be a great interior disruptor if he lives up to his potential. He had a chance to be a top-five pick (No. 4 overall?) in the 2019 NFL Draft before he returned to school.





  8. Cleveland Browns: Walker Little, OT, Stanford
    Perhaps the Browns will think twice about entering the season with Greg Robinson as their left tackle. They desperately need help on the offensive line.

    Walker Little was the 25th-overall player in his recruiting class. An athletic tackle who is proficient in both pass protection and run blocking, Little will undergo knee surgery, but should be ready by training camp.



  9. Jacksonville Jaguars: Paulson Adebo, CB, Stanford
    Jalen Ramsey has demanded a trade. If he's dealt, the Jaguars will have an obvious hole at cornerback they'll need to fill.

    Paulson Adebo has great size, coverage skills and play-making ability.

    Pick change; previously Grant Delpit, S





  10. Las Vegas Raiders: Laviska Shenault, WR, Colorado
    The Raiders planned to have Antonio Brown as their top receiver in 2019, but their plans went awry. Here's a new No. 1 receiver to replace him.

    Laviska Shenault drew rave reviews during spring practices preceding the 2018 campaign, and he didn't disappoint. The 6-foot-2 play-maker was college football's best receiver as a mere sophomore (at least prior to his injury.)

    Pick change; previously Justin Herbert, QB



  11. Los Angeles Chargers: Jeff Okudah, CB, Ohio State
    The Chargers' secondary is a mess. Part of that has to do with injuries, but they've needed a talented cornerback across from Casey Hayward for quite some time.

    Jeff Okudah is a big, athletic, speedy cornerback with immense upside.



  12. Tennessee Titans: Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia
    Marcus Mariota has 13 more games to prove that he deserves to be Tennessee's starting quarterback in 2020. If he fails to get the Titans to the playoffs, the front office will look into using a first-round pick on a 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 has been passed by a couple of prospects, but he's still a first-round prospect.

    Pick change; previously Raekwon Davis, DT



  13. Atlanta Falcons: A.J. Epenesa, DE/OLB, Iowa
    The Falcons missed Adrian Clayborn this past season. Vic Beasley, meanwhile, has regressed. This would be a nice replacement for one of them (assuming Clayborn, who was re-signed, sticks around for only one year.)

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



  14. New York Giants: Isaiah Simmons, S, Clemson
    The Giants' secondary is an absolute mess. They need to replace Landon Collins, so they can do that with this selection.

    Isaiah Simmons flew all around the field and was a physical presence for Clemson last year.



  15. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jacob Eason, QB, Washington
    The Buccaneers will give Jameis Winston one more chance this season. If he continues to play very inconsistently under Bruce Arians, or if he continues to grope Uber drivers, he won't be back for 2020.

    Jacob Eason, a former first-round staple of my mock drafts, is off to a good start at Washington. He was once the projected No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Mock Draft, but dropped off because of his injury and transfer. Now that he's thriving for Washington, he should be back in first-round consideration.

    Pick change; previously Jake Fromm, QB



  16. Carolina Panthers: Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama
    The Panthers didn't address cornerback last offseason, which seemed like a mistake. They need to get better at the position.

    Trevon Diggs, younger brother of Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs, began as a receiver at Alabama, but was tremendous last season at cornerback before suffering a foot injury.

    Pick change; previously Jeff Okudah, CB
