1. Cincinnati Bengals: Justin Herbert |QB| Oregon
The rumors with Herbert to the Bengals are real. The Bengals coaching staff was with Justin Hebert with a straight week watching what he does every day, day in and day out. The Bengals go to see him succeed when no one else did, the Bengals saw Hebert fail but saw past the failures. Hebert also won the Senior Bowl MVP as well and the Bengals head coach Zac Taylor was very exciting for him at the Senior Bowl.

The most important question that I think we all have is if Joe Burrow does not go No. 1 overall, then who does Burrow fall to? If you watched any film over the past year and actually evaluated Joe Burrows tape this offseason, you would also say that Burrow is the No. 1 overall pick without a doubt. But if you look at even in last year’s draft, with the New York Giants taking Duke quarterback Daniel Jones at No. 6 overall. This could happen and he would already have a shakeup at the 1st overall pick.
2. Washington Redskins: Chase Young |EDGE| Ohio State
With Joe Burrow still on the board here, the Redskins still have to go with the best player in this draft. Chase Young is a massive game-changer on defense and in my projection, he is a future All-Pro and Pro Bowler. Go get your franchise defensive player with the No. 2 in this 2020 NFL Draft when you already drafted Dwayne Haskins just last season to take over for Alex Smith when he broke his leg two-seasons ago.
The Redskins have their franchise quarterback already in Dwayne Haskins which was drafted last season. The Redskins need to develop him up before getting Haskins more playing time. With the nine games he played in last season, he did not look very good at all. He struggled a bunch, throwing interceptions, not throwing the ball downfield as he did at Ohio State, getting sacked over 25 times in nine games. With that stat, Haskins could be sacked almost 50 times next season if he can not improve his pocket presence.
