2020 NFL Mock Draft: The Bengals supercharge their offense

With a quarter of the season out of the way, let's dive into the first two rounds of talent based on the obvious needs of each team. The first two days can provide game-changing talent.

17 – Carolina Panthers: Tyler Biadasz, Offensive Line, Wisconsin

The Panthers offensive line has improved a great deal, but there is still a lot of room for improvement. Tyler Biadasz is the total package when it comes to interior offensive linemen prospects. 

18 – Indianapolis Colts: Jordan Love, Quarterback, Utah State

Jordan Love has elite traits that will remind many of watching Patrick Mahomes play; however, he is far from a finished product. While Love isn’t surrounded by world-class talent at Utah State, he needs to improve his decision-making. Albeit this, NFL scouts will fall in love with Love, as he has tools and a ceiling that could lead to him flourishing in today’s NFL.

19 – Minnesota Vikings: Marvin Wilson, Defensive Tackle, Florida State

Marvin Wilson has been one of the best defenders in college football in 2019. He has flashed the ability to consistently dominate the line of scrimmage and make plays in the backfield. Adding Wilson to a talented Minnesota defensive line would improve their interior and their defense as a whole.

20 – Los Angeles Rams: K’Lavon Chaisson, Edge, LSU

While the stats are not there, Chaisson provides an exceptional blend of burst, bend, and power, which could lead to a fierce pass-rusher at the next level. He certainly could benefit from coaching and some fine-tuning, yet he has traits that could be electrifying.

21 – Las Vegas Raiders: Lavishka Shenault, Wide Receiver, Colorado

Well, it’s safe to say Antonio Brown didn’t work out for the Raiders. Finding Derek Carr a viable number-one receiver should be on the top of the Raiders’ wish list. Lavishka Shenault has the tools to be a very good receiver in the NFL and maybe even an All-Pro. If you want a good look at Shenault, read my colleague Andrew DiCecco’s piece: 2020 NFL Draft: Colorado’s Laviska Shenault has all-pro potential.

22 – Detroit Lions: Kristian Fulton, Cornerback, LSU

If you’re a Lions fan, you have to be excited about the direction of the franchise. Darius Slay and Justin Coleman present quite the combo at cornerback, yet the Lions would still run to the podium to select Fulton. In today’s passing NFL, you can never have enough quality cornerbacks on the roster, especially one like Fulton, who thrives in man coverage. 

23 – Buffalo Bills: Tee Higgins, Wide Receiver, Clemson

The Bills are off to an impressive start, which has Bills Mafia going bonkers. Tee Higgins would be the ideal complement to the current Bills receiver core, which features Cole Beasley and John Brown

24 – Seattle Seahawks: Yetur Gross-Matos, Edge, Penn State

Keeping Jadeveon Clowney in Seattle won’t be an easy task and even if he does stay, adding a talented pass-rusher like Yetur Gross-Matos will only make the Seattle defense even more dangerous. 

25 – Philadelphia Eagles: Paulson Adebo, Cornerback, Stanford

The Eagles need help at cornerback. Ronald Darby hasn’t bounced back from injuries to play at the level that is expected of him while taking it a step further. No one else has stepped up their play to bring credibility to the Eagles’ secondary. Enter Paulson Adebo, who is a smart, instinctive player that should be an instant plug-and-play.

26 – Baltimore Ravens: Dylan Moses, Linebacker, Alabama

The Ravens are so bad at linebacker that they just benched both of their starters and signed the likes of Josh Bynes and LJ Fort. The only reason that a player the caliber of Dylan Moses is still available is due to an injury that will cost the entire 2019 season. The last time the Ravens took a linebacker from Alabama, it worked out pretty well. 

27 – Miami Dolphins (HOU): Creed Humphrey, Offensive Line, Oklahoma

The Dolphins need to revamp their offensive line as it has been a problem for the Dolphins for over a decade. Creed Humphrey is the ideal building block and is a great start to fixing the problem.

28 – Green Bay Packers: Jalen Reagor, Wide Receiver, TCU

It’s been quite some time since Aaron Rodgers has looked like that all-time great that he has been pegged as. One of the main reasons we’ve seen this is because he isn’t working with the talented weapons he has had at his disposal as he has had in the past. Jalen Reagor is a speedy, explosive player that could thrive in Green Bay’s passing attack.

29 – Kansas City Chiefs: Trevon Diggs, Cornerback, Alabama

Talk about a match made in Heaven. Trevon Diggs has the skills to be a high-impact cornerback and the Chiefs fill their biggest need.

30 – New Orleans Saints: Shaun Wade, Cornerback, Ohio State

We know that the Saints love defensive backs from Ohio State, so why stop the trend now? Wade is a versatile and very talented player that could further legitimize the New Orleans secondary. 

31 – New England Patriots: Raekwon Davis, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

Raekwon Davis is a top-20 player in this draft and the Patriots stealing him this late should be criminal. Davis returned for his senior season and has been a force. 

32 – San Francisco 49ers: Alex Leatherwood, Offensive Tackle, Alabama

The 49ers need to start thinking about life after Joe Staley. Alex Leatherwood has developed into a fascinating left tackle for the Crimson Tide and will only get even better with more experience.
