Cincinnati Bengals: Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon
It's almost a guarantee the Bengals will draft Joe Burrow first overall, with the possible exception being if Burrow demands not to play for Cincinnati. Given this, the Bengals would select a different quarterback in this scenario. Justin Herbert entered the Senior Bowl as the top quarterback, and he didn't disappoint, though he didn't get to answer questions about leadership and ability to play in big moments.

Washington Redskins: Javon Kinlaw, DT, South Carolina
This isn't a "needs" pick, as the Redskins have a stellar defensive line. However, Javon Kinlaw was the top prospect at the Senior Bowl not named Justin Herbert. He dominated in Mobile, as expected, showing flashes of how Aaron Donald performed six years ago.
Detroit Lions: Bradlee Anae, DE/OLB, Utah
The Lions need pass-rushing help aside from Trey Flowers, so they could consider Bradlee Anae in the second round of the real 2020 NFL Draft. Anae dominated the Senior Bowl game, so he could be considered early on the second day of the 2020 NFL Draft.
New York Giants: Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn
General manager Dave Gettleman loves bolstering the trenches, so Prince Tega Wanogho is someone he could be interested in atop the second round. He's raw, but the Giants would be able to mold him into someone who could really bolster Daniel Jones' protection.
Miami Dolphins: Jordan Love, QB, Utah State
The Dolphins love Tua Tagovailoa and may trade up for him. Perhaps they'd feel that way about Jordan Love if he were the top quarterback prospect available. Love is projected to be a second- or third-round pick, but he has lots of upside. Like Tagovailoa, he'd have to sit for a year, but for different reasons.
Los Angeles Chargers: Josh Jones, OT, Houston
Josh Jones needs to get stronger for the NFL, but he has plenty of potential. He'll be a second-day pick in the 2020, and the Chargers could be interested in that range to improve their poor offensive line.
Carolina Panthers: Anfernee Jennings, LB, Alabama
The Panthers just lost Luke Kuechly to retirement, so they'll need a new force in the middle of their defense. Anfernee Jennings is great as a blitzer and a run defender.
Arizona Cardinals: Jon Greenard, DE/OLB, Flrida
The Cardinals need a pass rusher to play across from Chandler Jones. Jon Greenard is a quick edge rusher with plenty of moves. He could be chosen in the second round.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Kyle Dugger, S/KR, Lenoir Rhyne
Talent evaluators were excited to see Kyle Dugger compete with the I-A prospects at the Senior Bowl, and he didn't disappoint. He would provide a big boost for Jacksonville's suddenly poor secondary in the second round. He'd also add value as a return specialist.
Cleveland Browns: Terence Steele, OT, Texas Tech
Perhaps the Browns will think twice about entering the season with Greg Robinson as their left tackle. They have to select a tackle early, whether that's in the first round, or in the second frame with someone like Terence Steele, who has great length.
New York Jets: Logan Stenberg, G, Kentucky
Logan Stenberg enjoyed a terrific week at the Senior Bowl to bolster his draft stock into Day 2. The Jets should consider him to upgrade their anemic offensive line, which had trouble blocking for Sam Darnold last year.
Las Vegas Raiders: Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR, Liberty
The Raiders wanted to have Antonio Brown as their top receiver in 2020, but their plans went awry. They're expected to select a receiver in the first round, but if they don't, they might consider Antonio Gandy-Golden on Day 2. Gandy-Golden had some speed concerns, but he helped answer them in Mobile.
Indianapolis Colts: Terrell Lewis, DE/OLB, Alabama
If you check out the NFL Hot Press, you'll see that Charlie Campbell reported that the Colts are expected to pursue Jadeveon Clowney in free agency. If they can't land him, they'll consider a pass rusher at No. 13 overall.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Khaleke Hudson, S, Michigan
The Buccaneers need to make amends for passing on Derwin James a couple of years ago, so a safety is in play at No. 14 overall. It's also in play on Day 2, where Khaleke Hudson could be obtained.
Denver Broncos: Van Jefferson, WR, Florida
Van Jefferson was one of the top receivers at the Senior Bowl practices. He helped himself a ton in Mobile, so the Broncos may consider him on Day 2 of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Atlanta Falcons: Marlon Davidson, DE/DT, Auburn
The Falcons have needed to bolster the trenches for quite some time. I have them selecting Javon Kinlaw in my 2020 NFL Mock Draft, but he's long gone in this mock. Here, they can take another SEC defensive lineman to help them pressure Drew Brees.
