  1. Cincinnati Bengals: Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
    The Bengals will be giving Ryan Finley a chance in the second half of the season. If he struggles -and his performance against Baltimore wasn't a good start - the Bengals will be in a position to select Tua Tagovailoa atop the 2020 NFL Draft in the wake of Miami's victory over the Jets.

    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. He's the favorite to be chosen No. 1, despite what Joe Burrow has done lately.

  2. Washington Redskins: Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia
    Trent Williams has vowed never to play for the Redskins again, and he has kept his word thus far. Washington needs a new left tackle to protect Dwayne Haskins.

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



  3. New York Giants: Chase Young, DE/OLB, Ohio State
    The Giants' defense is an abomination, and they also need help on the offensive line so that Daniel Jones doesn't keep fumbling twice every week. A No. 1 receiver can be used as well. New York is in a position to select the top player on its board to fill one of these three major needs.

    Chase Young enjoyed a breakout season in the wake of Nick Bosa's injury in 2018, and has been very dominant this year. He's a very athletic edge player with great size (6-5, 265).

    Pick change; previously Jerry Jeudy, WR





  4. Miami Dolphins: Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon
    The Dolphins are so bad that they screwed up their own tanking, meaning they're no longer in position to select Tua Tagovailoa. Luckily, there are several other quarterbacks worth selecting at No. 4 overall.

    This includes Justin Herbert, who had an up-and-down 2018 season. He was considered the top quarterback prospect for the 2019 NFL Draft before making the mistake of returning to school, where he's risking injury and regression. There's a chance he'll be chosen after Joe Burrow as a result.



  5. New York Jets: Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama
    The Jets need someone to help Sam Darnold, so both a No. 1 receiver (Jerry Jeudy) and a talented left tackle (Austin Jackson) make sense. The former happens to be the superior prospect, and he'll be a major upgrade across from Robby Anderson.

    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 Chase Young, DE





  6. Atlanta Falcons: Jeff Okudah, CB, Ohio State
    Atlanta has tons of holes to fill, and one of the major ones is the poor cornerback play. With Chase Young off the board, the Falcons could be interested in the top cornerback in this class.

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



  7. Cleveland Browns: Austin Jackson, OT, USC
    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.

    Austin Jackson is a terrific athlete with quick feet and superb agility.





  8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Grant Delpit, S, LSU
    The Buccaneers could draft a quarterback, but that would require general manager Jason Licht to admit that he was wrong about Jameis Winston. Licht believes he's right about everything, so Tampa might give Winston another shot in 2020. If so, perhaps this pick will be used on a safety to finally make amends for not selecting Derwin James.

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



  9. Denver Broncos: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU
    This has to be John Elway's final chance. He has screwed up all of his quarterback moves, excluding Peyton Manning. He spent a second-round pick on Drew Lock last year, but Lock has shown no signs that he can be a viable starting quarterback in the NFL. Unless that changes, I could see Elway making one final move to save his job.

    Joe Burrow's stock has soared in the wake of his 2019 performances, especially his victory over Alabama. Burrow was actually not considered a first-round prospect back in September. Charlie Campbell reported that NFL Teams See a Day 2 Ceiling for Joe Burrow. However, second-round quarterback prospects are chosen in the first frame all the time. Quarterbacks are pushed up, and all it takes is for one decision-maker to believe in a certain prospect.

    Pick change; previously Jerry Jeudy, WR





  10. 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.



  11. Detroit Lions: A.J. Epenesa, DE/OLB, Iowa
    You can never have too many talented players rushing the passer, so I imagine that the Lions will be very interested in a talented player who can do so early in the 2020 NFL Draft.

    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.



  12. Los Angeles Chargers: Kenneth Murray, LB, Oklahoma
    The Chargers have one of the slowest linebacking corps in the NFL. They could opt to select the top prospect at the position in the 2020 NFL Draft.

    Kenneth Murray was co-Defensive Freshman of the Year in the Big XII, thriving in coverage for the Sooners. He broke an Oklahoma record for tackles in a game with 28. Murray has excellent instincts and has great speed and athleticism for coverage.

    Pick change; previously Trevon Diggs, CB



  13. Jacksonville Jaguars: Paulson Adebo, CB, Stanford
    The Jaguars traded Jalen Ramsey (go here for the NFL Trade Grades for analysis), so they'll need a replacement for him.

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



  14. Las Vegas Raiders: CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma
    The Raiders wanted 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.

    CeeDee Lamb is a terrific route runner with great hands. He's been amazing this year and is now the No. 2 receiver on my board.



  15. Tennessee Titans: Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia
    Marcus Mariota has been benched, so the Titans will almost likely use an early-round pick on a quarterback next spring.

    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.



  16. Philadelphia Eagles: Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama
    The struggles of Philadelphia's secondary have been well documented. I imagine the Eagles would pounce at the opportunity to select one of the top three cornerback prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft.

    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 Jalen Reagor, WR
