The Jets cut the cord with Le'Veon Bell and need a new feature back for their offense.
Harris has averaged 6.0 yards per carry this year for 499 yards with 11 touchdowns. He has eight catches for 86 yards as well. In 2019, Harris averaged 5.9 yards per carry for 1,224 yards with 13 touchdowns. He had 27 receptions for 304 yards and seen scores as a receiver. Harris flashed at times, but some scouts don't feel Harris is the same caliber as other recent Alabama running backs like Josh Jacobs, Damien Harris or Derrick Henry.
Harris (6-2, 230) is a big back who has some quickness and athleticism for the NFL. Over the past few seasons, he didn't generally run to his size and looked to bounce too many carries to the outside rather than use his power to run behind his pads in a physical manner. In the latter half of 2019, especially against LSU and Mississippi State, Harris aggressively ran downhill with decisiveness. His tape from the back half of the 2019 season will help his draft grade and definitely makes him look like a better pro prospect compared to how he performed at the beginning of the season.

The Giants could use multiple receivers for Daniel Jones, and this could be a loaded class to stock up at the position.
Bateman was part of dynamic tandem with Tyler Johnson in 2019, as Bateman totaled 1,219 yards and 11 touchdowns on 60 receptions. The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder decided to skip his junior year to enter the 2021 NFL Draft prior to the Big Ten canceling and then rescheduling its season. With a former NFL wide receivers coach as the head coach of the Gophers, Bateman has solid development in terms of his route running and technique. However, he could have issues with enough speed to separate from NFL cornerbacks, plus he dropped a significant number of passes in 2019. Showing improved hands and running fast in pre-draft workouts could cause him to rise.
The Falcons need more defensive line talent and difference-makers at the point of attack.
Paye (6-4, 277) had an impressive junior year as a well-balanced defender at the point of attack. He notched 50 tackles with 6.5 sacks on the year. With his developed strength, Paye can set the edge and hold his ground. He also shows some pass-rush ability and upside to be better as he gains experience. Last year was only his first season as a starter, so Paye has room for improvement.

The Jaguars need Taven Bryan to step up in 2020. If he doesn't, and it doesn't look good thus far, defensive tackle will be a huge need for them.
Slaton has played well in the early going of 2020, collecting eight tackles and .5 sacks so far. The 6-foot-5, 343-pounder did not produce a big stat line for the Gators in 2019, but the big nose tackle caused a lot of disruption and plugged a lot of gaps at the point of attack. Team sources have remarked that Slaton jumped out at them and was impossible to ignore while grading the Gators' 2020 NFL Draft prospects. For the NFL, Slaton projects as a heavy nose tackle.
37.Jacksonville Jaguars:Hamsah Nasirildeen, SFlorida State
Jacksonville need to find a safety upgrade via the 2021 NFL Draft.
Florida State had a rough 2019 season, leaving some good players like Nasirildeen to fly under the radar. He was a really good defender for the Seminoles with 101 tackles, three forced fumbles, two interceptions and three passes broken up. It was the second straight season in which Nasirildeen (6-4, 212) contributed well in the tackling department for the Seminoles, as he had 91 stops with an interception in 2018.
Nasirildeen might fit best in the NFL as a strong safety, provided he can fill out. For the pros, he has good length to help defend tight ends and tall receivers. It would help Nasirildeen for the next level to add some weight to his frame.

Washington (5-8, 178) is undersized, but he is also a natural cover safety with excellent instincts. He can play slot cornerback and has versatility to play free safety in the deep part of the field. Washington has eight tackles thus far in 2020. In 2019, he totaled 46 tackles, five interceptions and two passes broken up. Washington would be a first-rounder if he were bigger.

The Redskins grab a mismatch receiver for whomever they use at quarterback.
Stevenson has six receptions for 137 yards and a touchdown in 2020. Team sources say that Stevenson jumped out to them last year and feel he could be a poor man's Hollywood Brown. In 2019, Stevenson had 52 receptions for 907 yards with nine touchdowns. For the previous season, he recorded 75 catches for 1,019 yards with nine touchdowns. Stevenson (6-0, 190) has serious speed and is a vertical deep threat for the NFL. Entering the 2020 season, teams thought he might end up being an early-rounder.

The Chargers need more interior offensive line talent as well as tackle upgrades.
Brown (6-4, 338) was suspended for part of 2019 season, but he returned mid-year and played very well for Alabama. Brown is a load at the point of attack with the strength to open holes in the ground game and is a steady pass protector. After breaking into lineup during his sophomore season, Brown played well until getting suspended prior to the semifinal game against Oklahoma for a violation of team rules.

41.Cincinnati Bengals:Patrick Jones II, DEPittsburgh
The Bengals could use a young understudy for Carlos Dunlap.
In 2020, Jones has 25 tackles and seven sacks. The 6-foot-5, 260-pounder put together a very good 2019 season and was one of the best edge defenders in the ACC. He was solid in the ground game and productive in the pass rush. On the year, he totaled 42 tackles with 8.5 sacks and four forced fumbles. It wasn't his first year of solid tape, as he was productive in a backup rotational role as a sophomore. If Jones can get stronger and continue to improve his pass rush, he could rise as a senior.
The Eagles could use a big receiver to go with Jalen Reagor.
Terry has caught 21 passes for 275 yards and a touchdown so far this season. He has also been banged up, but that doesn't entirely excuse the big plays he has left on the field due to dropped passes. Terry totaled 60 receptions for 1,188 yards and nine scores in 2019. As redshirt freshman, he made 35 receptions for 744 yards and eight touchdowns.
Team sources are high on Terry's potential with his excellent combination of size and speed. The 6-foot-4, 203-pounder is fast for a big receiver and has athleticism. He has the upside and skill set to be an early-round pick.

The Patriots need more receiving weapons. They should draft multiple wideouts to upgrade their offense.
Toney has been excellent for the Gators so far in 2020 and has 18 receptions for 237 yards and four touchdowns. He missed a lot of 2019 with injuries while recording 10 catches for 194 yards and a touchdown. In 2018, he totaled 25 receptions for 260 yards and a score along with 21 carries for 240 yards on the ground.
Toney has shown tremendous playmaking ability with the ball in his hands. He is a big-play threat with game-breaking speed. The Gators have struggled to get him the ball in the past, but if they suceed at that in 2020, he could explode. The 5-foot-11, 190-pounder is an elusive, versatile athlete to go with his game-breaking speed.
Denver could use more youth on the defensive line.
Hutchinson broke out as a sophomore for the Wolverines as a tough defender who flashed pass-rush ability. In 2019, he had 68 tackles with 4.5 sacks and two forced fumbles. Hutchinson has excellent size for the next level where he could be a base end in a 4-3 or 3-4 five-technique defensive end. Improving his pass-rush production would help Hutchinson.

The Lions could look to draft a young understudy for Matthew Stafford.
In 2020, Trask has completed 72 percent of his passes for 996 yards with 14 touchdowns and an interception. Overall, Trask showed pocket-passing ability for the NFL last season. He was accurate with impressive ball placement and made good decisions. With a powerful arm capable of making touch passes, Trask put on display some natural passing ability for the NFL while doing a phenomenal job of getting the ball to his playmaking receivers and tight end.
Florida's offense improved in 2019 when Trask replaced Feleipe Franks. Trask could have beaten out Franks for the job a year earlier if it weren't for an injury suffered in practice due to a hit from Jabari Zuniga. In 2019, Trask made good decisions as a passer and efficiently distributed the ball to his deep group of receivers. He improved during the course of the season, but he needs to speed up his process, get the ball out faster, and play with more confidence. He completed 67 percent of his passes in 2019 for 2,941 yards with 25 touchdowns and seven interceptions.
Trask (6-5, 239) has a thick build and a powerful arm, plus is an accurate pocket passer. He could be a riser now that he has experience and more tutelage from quarterback expert Dan Mullen. Multiple team sources have compared Trask to Tampa Bay Buccaneers Super Bowl champion quarterback Brad Johnson.
The Panthers let Greg Olsen go and could use a tight end to go with Ian Thomas.
In 2019, Freiermuth totaled 43 receptions for 507 yards and seven touchdowns. The 6-foot-5, 259-pounder has upside with quickness, size and athleticism. As a freshman, he collected 26 catches for 368 yards and eight touchdowns. Freiermuth could contend to be the top tight end for his draft class.
Jobe has 17 tackles with a sack, three passes defended, and forced fumble so far in 2020. In 2019, he notched 22 tackles with two passes broken up and an interception, but he looked like he was just scratching the surface of his potential. Jobe (6-1, 189) is a big corner who can run and is athletic. Like Patrick Surtain II, Jobe was a rare freshman defensive back to see the field under Nick Saban. Jobe has tons of upside to break out for the Crimson Tide.

The Dolphins could use more young talent in the middle of their defense.
In 2020, Bolton has 36 tackles and three passes broken up. The 6-foot, 232-pounder showed some nice pass-coverage skills as a sophomore, making plays on the ball for Missouri with two interceptions and eight passes broken up. In the ground game, he also was a solid tackler with 100 stops and showed the instincts to be around the ball. With his year of starting experience, Bolton could be better as an upperclassman. His height and length limitations could hurt him with NFL evaluators.

The Raiders pursued Yannick Ngakoue and Jadeveon Clowney. They obviously want and need another edge rusher.
Collins is off to an excellent start to the 2020 season with three sacks, an interception, two passes broken up and 16 tackles. In 2019, he had 97 tackles with two sacks. He had 85 stops and 1.5 sacks in 2018.
The 6-foot-4, 260-pound Collins has a good skill set for the next level and looks like he has massively improved his pass-rush ability as a junior. He is big, quick, and a versatile athlete showing some ability to drop into coverage. However, team sources feel that Collins does not play physically enough and has average instincts.

Malcolm Jenkins is an aging liability in coverage, so the Saints could look for a young upgrade.
Moehrig has 13 tackles in 2020. The 6-foot-2, 208-pounder put together an impressive 2019 season with excellent ball production aside a solid tackle total. He totaled four interceptions, 11 passes broken up, two forced fumbles and 62 tackles on the year. It was his first season as a starter after being a good special teams contributor in 2018 as a freshman. Moehrig has good size to him, and it will be interesting to see how he performs as a junior.
The Cowboys need could stand to add more talent on the inside of their defensive line.
In the 2020 season opener, Ray had 11 tackles and .5 sacks. He was injured in 2019, but he has a lot of ability to break out in 2020. While Quinnen Williams was the star of the Alabama defensive line in 2018, Ray flashed at times for the Crimson Tide and had some nice moments that season. Ray totaled 39 tackles with six for a loss, 2.5 sacks and two passes batted in 2018. With Christian Barmore next to him, Ray has the potential to be a riser in 2020.
The Bucs could use a playmaking slot receiver and more receiver talent to provide depth for Tom Brady in case they have an injury to Mike Evans or Chris Godwin.
In 2019, Moore had 29 receptions for 387 yards with two touchdowns over four games, but a hamstring injury robbed him of three quarters of the season. The 5-foot-9, 180-pounder electrified college football in 2018, including a dominating performance that led Purdue to an upset of Ohio State. The freshman caught 114 passes for 1,258 yards with 12 touchdowns in 2018. He also had 18 carries for 203 yards and a touchdown as a tailback while contributing on special teams.
The Colts might move on from Malik Hooker, which would leave them needing a replacement to go with Julian Blackmon.
In 2020, Sterns has 12 tackles, one interception and two passes broken up. He notched 59 tackles with a pass defended and a sack in 2019. The 6-foot-1, 205-pounder had an impressive freshman season with four interceptions, 46 tackles and four passes broken up. He showed a lot of upside to develop as a junior.
Little was playing well overall against Northwestern in the 2019 season-opener, but late in the fourth quarter, he had to be helped off the field after suffering a dislocated knee. Little's injury was a season-ender, and he decided to return to Stanford for his senior year. Little was impressive as a freshman starter at left tackle for Stanford. The 6-foot-7, 304-pounder did an effective job in run blocking and helped Bryce Love to a huge 2017 season. Little was solid as a sophomore, protecting K.J. Costello and opening holes in the ground game. Little has good length, strength and recoverability. With some nastiness and physicality, he is a plus run blocker for a left tackle and will punish pass rushers as well.
Previous Mock Selections: 10/16-Liam Eichenberg, OT
55.Buffalo Bills:Liam Eichenberg, OTNotre Dame
The Bills could consider adding more offensive line talent.
Eichenberg won the left tackle job for 2018 as the replacement for Mike McGlinchey. The 6-foot-6, 305-pound Eichenberg was solid, but not overly impressive, for Notre Dame in 2019. He was wise to return for his senior year. Eichenberg was dominated by Michigan edge rusher Chase Winovich in the 2018 season opener, but after that, Eichenberg was much better for the Fighting Irish. Eichenberg possesses some physical talent, but he needs to improve his ability to handle speed rushers for the next level.
There are rumors of Cleveland not keeping Odell Beckham Jr. and/or Jarvis Landry in the long run. If the Browns let either go, they could use more receiver talent.
St. Brown was very productive for USC in 2019, forming a dangerous tandem with Michael Pittman Jr. In 2019, St. Brown totaled 1,042 yards and six touchdowns on 77 receptions. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound St. Brown has quality size and quickness. He has the potential for a big 2020 season as the Trojans' No. 1 wide receiver as the replacement for Pittman.
The Cardinals could use an understudy for Patrick Peterson.
In 2020, Mukuamu has six tackles and an interception, but he struggled to prevent separation against Florida. He was very good in 2019, collecting four interceptions, nine passes broken up and 59 tackles. The sophomore produced a huge game against Georgia, shutting down the Bulldogs' passing attack to lead the Gamecocks to a huge upset win. The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Mukuamu is a big corner who fights and competes. The question to get answered during his junior year will be if he has enough speed and athleticism to be an early-rounder.
The Packers could use more young wide receiver talent.
In 2020, Williams has 16 receptions for 290 yards and two touchdowns. The 6-foot-3, 224-pounder enjoyed a breakout 2019 for Auburn in which he made some clutch plays downfield while also dealing with an inconsistent freshman quarterback. On the year, the big receiver had 59 receptions for 830 yards and eight touchdowns. As a freshman in 2018, Williams had 26 catches for 534 yards and five scores.
Quenton Nelson was the top offensive lineman in college football in 2017, but the second-best guard in the nation could have been Smith. Considering there were other good guards, like Will Hernandez and Braden Smith, who were second-round picks in the 2018 NFL Draft, that is really saying something for how Trey Smith played in 2017. The freshman was a steady pass protector and a bull in the ground game. The 6-foot-6, 320-pounder dominated at the point of attack in 2017 and looked like he was just scratching the surface of his upside to be even better with more experience.
Smith played left tackle as a sophomore before blood clots in his lungs ended his season early. He returned to the field in 2019 and had a good season playing guard for the Volunteers. Smith can play guard or tackle, but guard is his best position.
60.Kansas City Chiefs:Tylan Wallace, WROklahoma State
The Chiefs may find it hard to afford all of their talented receivers. Thus, trading some and drafting new weapons could be necessary for Kansas City.
In 2020, Wallace has 19 catches for 325 yards and two touchdowns. He had 53 receptions for 903 yards and eight touchdowns in 2019 before going down with a season-ending injury. As a sophomore, he caught 86 passes for 1,491 yards with 12 touchdowns.
Wallace (6-0, 185) might fit best in the NFL as a slot receiver because team sources say Wallace is not as big as his listed numbers. They feel he is similar to Josh Doctson, but Wallace is smaller. They call Wallace a tough receiver who plays big but lacks speed. They state he runs good routes and runs well after the catch, but doesn't have a special dimension of mismatch size or speed.

Unless Mitch Trubisky or Nick Foles has a huge year, the Bears need to find a long-term starter at quarterback. Ryan Pace should be fired for completely blowing the evaluation of taking Trubisky over Pat Mahomes and Deshaun Watson.
After the 2019 season, Newman decided to transfer to Georgia from Wake Forest rather than enter the 2020 NFL Draft. Newman created a buzz in the scouting community in the fall of 2019 as a legit pro prospect for the NFL. He has significantly improved as a passer and shows a lot of upside to develop for the pro ranks. Some team sources think Newman would have been a second-day pick if he entered the 2020 NFL Draft, but he wisely decided to stay in school rather than turn pro. However, he opted out of the 2020 season. Newman is a dual-threat quarterback with running and passing talent to challenge defenses. He has quality size with a live arm, athleticism, and upside to develop.
In 2019, Newman completed 61 percent of his passes for 2,868 yards with 26 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He also has six rushing touchdowns with 464 yards on the ground. In 2018, Newman completed 60 percent of his passes for 1,083 yards with nine touchdowns and four interceptions.

The Steelers have James Conner entering free agency and could use an upgrade at the position who has more durability.
Gainwell was an electric playmaker for Memphis as a redshirt freshman in 2019 and jumped out to teams. He averaged 6.3 yards per carry on the year while racking up 1,459 yards with 13 touchdowns. He also was a superb receiver out of the backfield, recording 51 receptions for 610 yards and three scores through the air. Gainwell is a fast and explosive back who is a threat to rip off a long gain on any touch. The 5-foot-11, 191-pounder could stand to get stronger for the NFL, but he is a young and has time to develop physically. Gainwell decided to sit out the 2020 season, so he will enter the next level as a 1-year wonder with size concerns.
Greg Olsen is nearing the end of his excellent career. Here's a replacement.
Jordan has 18 receptions for 243 yards and three touchdowns so far this year. He recorded 35 catches for 495 yards with two touchdowns in 2019. After a strong freshman season, Jordan (6-4, 245) is helping to re-invigorate Miami as 'tight end U'. The Las Vegas, Nevada product had 32 receptions for 287 yards with four touchdowns in 2018. He is undersized, so growing stronger and working on his blocking will be important for the next level.
64.Tennessee Titans:Kylin Hill, RBMississippi State
The Titans need to lighten the load on Derrick Henry, and a speed back could be an asset in the passing game.
Hill opened 2020 by dominating LSU through the air with eight receptions for 158 yards and a touchdown while running for 34 yards on seven carries. It looks like Hill's rushing production will decline in this new passing offense. Thus far in 2020, Hill has 58 yards on 15 carries with 23 receptions or 237 yards and a touchdown.
In 2019, Hill averaged 5.7 yards per carry for 1,347 yards with 10 scores. He made 17 receptions for 174 yards and a touchdown too. Hill ran well for the Bulldogs, showing power and quickness, but they struggled to help him find good running lanes in a number of games in 2019. In 2018, Hill averaged 6.3 yards per carry for 734 yards with four touchdowns on only 117 carries. He also caught 22 passes for 176 yards and four touchdowns that season. Hill has starting potential for the NFL, although he could stand to improve his receiving ability for the next level.
