With veteran quarterbacks on the move this offseason, the potential starters in this incoming class are snatched up quickly in this 2020 NFL Draft 3-Round mock
Every offseason, teams have to make some tough choices with their roster. This year, that’s happening again but it seems as though more veteran quarterbacks are on the bubble than usual — which will have quite an impact on how the 2020 NFL Draft unfolds.
With Philip Rivers already on the way out with the Los Angeles Chargers and Andy Dalton all but done with the Cincinnati Bengals, it was clear two names were going in the top-10. Throw in the Miami Dolphins who need a franchise signal-caller and there are three potential quarterbacks in the top-six picks.
Now, reports are suggesting that the Detroit Lions, who own the No. 3 overall pick, could also be looking to move on from Matthew Stafford. It would be a bit surprising but at the same time, there’s reason to believe the smoke.
Head coach Matt Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn — who denied the rumors according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press — are both on the hot seat this season. Adding a young quarterback could help them convince ownership to give them a pass should 2020 not be a success. It may not work but they could plead for more time with their young gun-slinger.
Of course, it’s all rumor until we see some real action, but still with all these rumors — as well as the Rivers news — flying around, we take another stab at predicting the first three rounds of the 2020 NFL Draft in this 96-player mock draft.
