The big guys get a lot of love in the first round of this 2020 NFL Draft 3-round mock following the National Championship
The 2020 NFL Season is coming to a close after another weekend of playoff football in the books and the National Championship concluding. All but four teams have been eliminated and now know where they will be making their choices in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft.
Those 28 teams are now in full-on scouting mode as they look to fill their rosters with some young talent in the upcoming draft. And as always, there’s a lot of talent to chose from — and looking at the games in the second round, we can see that there might be a theme in the coming draft.
In what proved to be a rather exciting weekend, we saw the Minnesota Vikings, who looked great in the first round of the playoffs, get pushed around by the San Francisco 49ers, who have a tenacious defensive line.

The same thing happened to the Baltimore Ravens, who were beaten on the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. Quarterback Lamar Jackson made it interesting as he was able to evade defenders as he always does, but the constant pressure from the Tennessee Titans proved to be too much.
Conversely, on offense, the Titans were smashing the ball right down the Ravens’ throat. Derrick Henry was a wrecking ball but what made it worse was the constant gaping holes he was running through which allowed the 238-pound running back to get a full head of steam.
These games could make it to where teams focus on strengthening their own line of scrimmage, on either side of the ball. And should they look to do that, there will be some interesting names to watch.
Here we try and predict exactly what will happen in the first two days of the big event as we have a three-round 2020 NFL Draft simulation, which sees linemen flying off the board in a hurry. After a fun National Championship a night ago, celebrate with this mock draft.
