33-Cincinnati Bengals: Zack Baun, LB/Edge Wisconsin

The Bengals have needed help at the linebacker position for quite some time. Zach Baun is a versatile player, who can play linebacker and even bolster the pass rush for the Bengals.

34-Indianapolis Colts: Tee Higgins, WR Clemson

It’s time to get newly signed quarterback Philip Rivers another weapon opposite of TY Hilton. Tee Higgins is a jump ball receiver that comes with a marvelous catch radius. Instantly, Higgins should become Indianapolis’ biggest red-zone threat.

35-Detroit Lions: D’Andre Swift, RB Georgia

D’Andre Swift is a top-20 player in the 2020 NFL Draft, but he falls due to positional value. I know the Lions have Kerryon Johnson, but he comes with health concerns and isn’t good enough for the Lions to pass on the explosive Swift.

36-New York Giants: Marlon Davidson, Edge Auburn

As we know, David Gettleman loves spending resources on trench play. Marlon Davidson is a physical player that fits the DNA of what the New York Giants seek in their defensive linemen.

37-Los Angeles Chargers: Ezra Cleveland, OT Boise State

The Chargers spent their first-round pick on their franchise quarterback and now they spend this pick on protecting his blindside. Ezra Cleveland showcased impressive athleticism at the NFL Scouting Combine and his stock is on the rise.

38-Carolina Panthers: Justin Madubuike, DT Texas A&M

The Panthers lost Gerald McCoy, Vernon Butler and Dontari Poe at the defensive tackle position this offseason, so selecting a defensive tackle here would make a ton of sense.

39-Miami Dolphins: JK Dobbins, RB Ohio State

It’s no secret that the Miami Dolphins love JK Dobbins. Adding Dobbins with newly signed Jordan Howard should really bolster the Miami rushing attack.

40-Houston Texans: Laviska Shenault Jr., WR Colorado

In a trade that shocked the world, the Houston Texans traded DeAndre Hopkins. Replacing Hopkins won’t be an easy task, but if anyone is up for the challenge, it’s big-play threat Laviska Shenault Jr.

41-Cleveland Browns: Kyle Dugger, S Lenoir-Rhyne

The Browns are in the market for a safety and the talented small-school prospect from Lenoir-Rhyne gives them an enforcer in their secondary.

42-Jacksonville Jaguars: AJ Terrell, CB Clemson

The Jaguars have now traded away Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye, so it will take a lot more than signing Darqueze Dennard to fix the Jacksonville secondary.

43-Chicago Bears: Trevon Diggs, CB Alabama

When it comes to athleticism and ball skills, there are no better cornerback prospects than Alabama’s Trevon Diggs. It is the consistency that Diggs needs to work on, yet he provides good value here in the second round.

44-Indianapolis Colts: Terrell Lewis, Edge Alabama

He can bend like Gumby and is extremely explosive, but Terrell Lewis will need to become more durable. He provides a much-needed pass rush presence for the Colts.

45-Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Lucas Niang, OT TCU

If it wasn’t for a hip injury in 2019, Lucas Niang would be a surefire first-round selection. Luckily for Brady and the Buccaneers, he falls right into their laps.

46-Denver Broncos: Raekwon Davis, DL Alabama

Denver is a young team on the rise and they don’t have many needs. Due to this, they are able to take the best player available approach and add some beef to their defensive front.

47-Atlanta Falcons: Jonathan Taylor, RB Wisconsin

The Atlanta Falcons release DeVonta Freeman, but they easily upgrade with the explosive and productive Jonathan Taylor. Atlanta just signed Todd Gurley, but it’s only a one year deal.

48-New York Jets: Brandon Aiyuk, WR Arizona State

The Jets must provide Sam Darnold ample weapons before they ruin him. Brandon Aiyuk would instantly become the Jets’ biggest receiving threat.

49-Pittsburgh Steelers: Jalen Hurts, QB Oklahoma

Here is the major swerve. It is essential that the Steelers start grooming an heir apparent to Ben Roethlisberger and while Hurts comes with some warts, he offers a unique talent and comes with a ton of upside.

50-Chicago Bears: Lloyd Cushenberry, OL LSU

The surprise retirement of Kyle Long created a big hole in the middle of the Bears offensive line.

51-Dallas Cowboys: Grant Delpit, S LSU

This pick might just be the biggest steal of the 2020 NFL Draft. While Grant Delpit faces much criticism due to his poor tackling, he is still a special talent.

52-Los Angeles Rams: Curtis Weaver, Edge Boise State

I am not sure the Rams know what they’re doing but rebuilding their offensive and defensive lines will be key. Curtis Weaver is a big-bodied defensive end that produces extraordinary sack productions.

53-Philadelphia Eagles: Antoine Winfield Jr., S Minnesota

Team captain Malcolm Jenkins was released, so the second generation superstar out of Minnesota is selected to fill his shoes. Antoine Winfield Jr. is a smart and instinctive football player, who possesses great ball skills and play-making ability.

54-Buffalo Bills: Julian Okwara, Edge Notre Dame

Jerry Hughes isn’t getting younger, Lorenzo Alexander retired and Shaq Lawson just signed with the divisional rival Miami Dolphins. The Buffalo Bills need to select an edge rusher that will help bolster their quarterback pressure numbers.

55-Baltimore Ravens: Josh Uche, Edge Michigan

The Ravens have done a stellar job at building their defensive front this offseason, but they still lack a legitimate pass-rushing threat outside of Matt Judon.


56-Miami Dolphins: Jalen Reagor, WR TCU

Wide receiver is probably the Miami Dolphins strongest positional group, but sometimes a player is just too good to pass up. Reagor is an explosive home run threat, who should flourish catching passes from Tagovailoa.

57-Houston Texans: Jaylon Johnson, CB Utah

It’s a shame the Houston Texans cannot draft a GM because that is their biggest need, but they also need help at cornerback. Jaylon Johnson should find significant playing time immediately.

58-Minnesota Vikings: Prince Tega Wanogho, OT Auburn

The left tackle position has been a problem for the Vikings for a while now. Prince Tega Wanogho is raw, but his ceiling is sky-high.

59-Seattle Seahawks: Isaiah Wilson, OT Georgia

Seattle’s offensive line has been the teams’ Achilles heel for quite some time. Isaiah Wilson gives them a legitimate right tackle and a good start in revamping Russell Wilson’s protection.

60-Baltimore Ravens: Matt Hennessy, OL Temple

The great Marshal Yanda retired, leaving a void in the Baltimore interior offensive line. Matt Hennessy is an instant starter, who should help open running lanes for Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram.

61-Tennessee Titans: Cole Kmet, TE Notre Dame

The Titans just paid Ryan Tannehill a boatload of money, so selecting the best tight end in the 2020 NFL Draft will provide him with a premium target to go with Corey Davis and AJ Brown.

62-Green Bay Packers: Damon Arnette, CB Ohio State

The Packers started the 38-year old Tramon Williams in 2018. Finding a young, talented cornerback to pair with Jaire Alexander would be a good investment.

63-Kansas City Chiefs: Jonathan Greenard, Edge Florida

Again, the Chiefs continue to add talented players to their defense.  With elite players such as Chris Jones and Frank Clark drawing most of the competition’s attention, Jonathan Greenard will have the opportunity to be productive instantly.

64-Seattle Seahawks: KJ Hamler, WR Penn State

KJ Hamler is the perfect Yin to DK Metcalf’s Yang. Adding an explosive player like KJ Hamler gives Wilson another big-time target at his disposal.
