2020 Mock Draft - ROUND 2
1) Jets -
Dillon Radunz | OT | North Dakota State - The Jets rank among the bottom of the league in sacks allowed. While Becton is cemented at LT, I could see them taking a step to protect Lawrence with a another reliable bookend in Radunz.
2) Jaguars -
Najee Harris | RB | Alabama - Leonard Fournette is gone, leaving a void at RB. Harris is a complete back, a player who can bulldoze opponents as well as catch the ball out of the backfield.
3) Giants -
Tylan Wallace | WR | OK State - The Giants had a very solid draft, but one position they didn't target was WR. Wallace is a deep threat WR who'll be coveted if he posts a blazing time at the combine.
4) Chargers -
Caden Sterns | SAF | Texas - The Chargers rank among the bottom five in passing yards allowed per game. Sterns is an instinctive SAF who plays the run and pass well.
5) Football Team -
Rasheed Walker | OT | Penn State - Washington ranks among the bottom three when it comes to sacks allowed. Bear in mind that Scherff is also in the last year of his contract. Grabbing O-line help is a must. Walker is very gifted, yet underrated.
6) Bengals -
Jalen Mayfield | OT | Michigan - If the Bengals want to keep Joe Burrow around for any length of time, they have to get him better blocking. They rank among the bottom three in sacks allowed while sporting a meh run game.
7) Lions -
Andre Cisco | SAF | Syracuse - The Lions have some decisions to make at their SAF positions, as they have three guys sitting on expiring contracts. Cisco has a higher ceiling than any of them, would be a good addition.
8) Broncos -
Tyson Campbell | CB | Georgia - Everything runs through Kansas City. In as much, teams in the AFC WEST simply can't have too many CBs. Campbell has shined thus far.
9) Panthers -
Rashawn Slater | OT/OG | Northwestern - Okung and Moton are both set to become UFAs after the 2020 season. I doubt both are retained, so the Panthers would be wise to grab a talented OT early on.
10) Falcons -
Azeez Ojulari | EDGE | Georgia - The Falcons grab another star on defense to help their turn things around. Ojulari has come on strong this year and will get a lot of looks if he makes the early jump.
11) Dolphins (via Texans) -
Aidan Hutchinson | DE | Michigan - Hutchinson flashed a number of times last year, but I expect him to take his game to another level this year. The Dolphins need more edge help.
12) Eagles -
Terrace Marshall | WR | LSU - The Eagles have a very meh WR corps, one that doesn't strike fear in the hearts of their opponents. They need to take steps to change that. Marshall is a very good option.
13) Vikings -
Kwity Paye | DE | Michigan
The Vikings already needed depth at the EDGE position, then they traded away Ngakoue. Paye is a gifted athlete with a lot of upside. He's equally adept at playing the run and creating pressure.
14) Cowboys -
Trevon Moehrig | SAF | TCU - The Cowboys could be unsettled at their SAF spots after this season, so it should be of no shock to anyone to see them go after one early is that's the case. Moehrig works.
15) Browns -
Jaycee Horn | CB | South Carolina - The Browns finished the 2019 season with the 30th ranked run defense. They since corrected that issue by allowing their passing defense to suffer. Horn has been great this year.
16) Patriots -
Trey Smith | OG/OT | Tennessee - Joe Thuney is set to become an UFA after this season, and there's a good chance that he'll be playing for someone else thereafter. Smith is an excellent interior player to fill Thuney's void.
Seth Williams | WR | Auburn - Denzel Mims should help the receiving game out, but one guy simply isn't enough. Williams is a solid possession guy that should help.
17) Cardinals -
Derrion Kendrick | CB | Clemson - The Cardinals have very little depth at the CB position. With the expectation that they let Patrick Peterson walk, they draft accordingly. Kendrick is a great prospect.
18) Dolphins -
Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah | LB | Notre Dame - The Dolphins were wise to load up on LBs in the offseason, but two of the aforementioned are more or less journeyman types that are set to become UFA's. Owusu-Koramoah is a frenetic player who'd see the field immediately.
19) Bears -
Deonte Brown | OG | Alabama - The Bears don't have great run blocking, and could certainly improve upon their pass protection. Brown is one of the nation's best OGs.
20) Rams -
Walker Little | OT | Stanford - The Rams are without a 1st-Rounder, so it'll be interesting to so what direction they go here. Little is a feisty player who should get Round-2 looks if he cleanly passes his medical. Whitworth can't play forever.
21) 49ers -
Richard LeCounte III | SAF | Georgia - The 49ers could certainly be in the market for some SAF depth. LeCounte is a gifted prospect who covers the back half quite well.
22) Colts -
Hamsah Nasirildeen | SAF | Florida State - The Colts did use a 3rd-Rounder on Julian Blackmon, but I don't think that would keep them from pulling the trigger on another gifted safety if the right guy falls to them.
23) Titans -
Jordan Davis | NT | Georgia - Daquon Jones is penciled in to start at NT for now, playing in the last year of his contract. While Murchison was drafted in the 5th round to be a challenger for that spot, he's a hit or miss player. Davis could end up being the nation's best draft-eligible NT in 2020.
24) Raiders -
Hamilcar Rashed Jr. | EDGE | Oregon State - The last time I checked, the Raiders were still in the same division as the Chiefs. With that being the case, they need to acquire guys that can put the heat on Mahomes. Rashed is a pass-rushing machine.
25) Saints -
Elijah Molden | CB | Washington - Needs aside, Molden is a very good CB who'll be playing within a good secondary.
26) Bills -
Kary Vincent | CB | LSU - This will end up being another strong CB draft. With that being the case, the Bills grab a talented player in Vincent, a player who'll provide some immediate insurance.
27) Buccaneers -
Darius Stills | DT | West Virginia - The Bucs would be wise to get some ready-now D-Line depth. Stills is a frenetic player who flashed a number of time in 2019. He'll be sought after if his strong play continues.
28) Ravens -
Tyler Shelvin | DT | LSU - The Ravens take a step here toward ensuring they have stout play up front. If/when Shelvin keeps his weight in check, he's a clog at the LOS.
29) Steelers -
Joe Tryon | EDGE | Washington - The Steelers will have to cough up big ,oney in order to keep Bud Dupree and Smith-Schuster, both of whom are UFS's next year. Tryon is an insurance policy for the former.
30) Seahawks -
Jaelan Phillips | DE | Miami - The Seahawks finished just one notch ahead of the Dolphins in sack production last year, earning them the 31st league ranking. They're still lacking.
31) Packers -
Josh Myers | C/OG | Ohio State - The Packers have a few O-Linemen set to become FA's, each of which will be past the 30-year old mark. Myers can man any interior spot.
32) Chiefs -
Marvin Wilson | DT | Florida State - The Chiefs finished 26th against the run in 2019, and outside of drafting Willie Gay they didn't do much to increase their run stopping prowess. They still stink in this regard, so they grab Wilson.
