By now we all have cabin fever, so here is a 2020 NFL Draft 3-round mock to add to a growing reading list while we all have to stay inside
This offseason has already been crazy and full of blockbuster trades including former Houston Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins, former Lions Cornerback Darius Slay, former Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs, and things are just getting started. This has been one of the most exciting offseasons in recent memories and the draft is sure to excite all NFL fans. Here is mine and Garrett Ballard’s attempt at predicting the draft amidst the craziness.
1. Cincinnati Bengals- Joe Burrow, QB LSU
It is a new Era in Cincinnati, it’s time for Joe Burrow to lead the Bengals for years to come. One of the most accomplished passers this past season will look to turn things around in Cincinnati as he did in Louisiana.
2. Washington Redskins- Jeffery Okudah, CB, Ohio State
A different scenario for the Washington Redskins in this mock draft. However, it’s one that I think could very well happen on draft weekend. We weren’t doing trades in this mock, but I’d expect a trade back if this were to be Washington’s pick. Okudah is a shutdown man corner, and after letting Josh Norman walk, and trading Quinton Dunbar, Okudah can immediately step in as CB1.
3. Detroit Lions- Isaiah Simmons, LB Clemson
Although Simmons does not necessarily fit the mold of previous Lions linebackers, Simmons is the most versatile player in the draft and can be used in many different ways, a true chess piece.
4. New York Giants- Case Young, Edge, Ohio State
If Chase Young falls to 4, the Giants need to get Roger Goodell to sprint to the podium.
