2020 NFL Mock Draft – Round Two
33 – Cincinnati Bengals: Troy Dye, Linebacker, Oregon
The Bengals need help at linebacker in a major way. Dye is a talented player that should immediately emerge as the leader of this position group for the Bengals.
34 – Indianapolis Colts (WAS): Javon Kinlaw, Defensive Tackle, South Carolina
Javon Kinlaw has a great deal of untapped potential. He flashes the ability to dominate a game but just needs to find more consistency. This pick presents great value to the Colts.
35 – Miami Dolphins: Jonathan Taylor, Running Back, Wisconsin
Kenyan Drake and Kalen Ballage have not been reliable for the Dolphins and you won’t find a more reliable player in college football than Jonathan Taylor. Taylor is highly productive and should be the best running back that the Dolphins’ fans have seen since Ricky Williams.
36 – New York Jets: Lucas Niang, Offensive Tackle, TCU
Left tackle remains a major need for the Jets. Niang plays with tremendous footwork and sound technique, bringing some credibility to the Jets offensive line.
37 – Denver Broncos: Neville Gallimore, Defensive Tackle, Oklahoma
Neville Gallimore is a wrecking ball that could flourish under Vic Fangio’s tutelage.
38 – Atlanta Falcons: Bryce Hall, Cornerback, Virginia
Deshaun Watson just torched the Falcons secondary for 426 passing yards and 5 touchdowns, so to say Atlanta needs some help in the secondary would be quite the understatement.
39 – Pittsburgh Steelers: Joe Burrow, Quarterback, LSU
Big Ben is getting a little long in the tooth and the 2019 season is proving that the Steelers are pitiful without him. No player in college football has helped their draft stock more than Joe Burrow. Burrow has emerged as a legitimate franchise quarterback option.
40 – Arizona Cardinals: Julian Okwara, Edge, Notre Dame
Okwara has the talent and tools to be a perennial double-digit sack type of player, especially considering he’d be lining up opposite of Chandler Jones.
41 – Los Angeles Chargers: Jedrick Wills, Offensive tackle, Alabama
The Chargers are another team desperate for offensive line help. Enter Jedrick Wills. Wills is a big, strong mauler that plays with a mean streak. He is a right tackle only; however, that is a major need for the Chargers.
42 – New York Giants: Curtis Weaver, Edge, Boise State
Curtis Weaver is a sack machine, accounting for 18.5 sacks over his last 17 games. After trading Olivier Vernon away, the Giants have a major need at their edge position, which is a void that Weaver can fill.
43 -Tennessee Titans: Jacob Eason, Quarterback, Washington
Marcus Mariota has been wildly inconsistent and, to be frank, a disappointment for the Titans. I could see a scenario where they franchise him, yet search for his successor.
44 – Jacksonville Jaguars: C.J. Henderson, Cornerback, Florida
It seems that Jalen Ramsey is destined to be traded by the Jaguars at some point in the near future. He simply wants out. The Jaguars would be wise to invest a top-50 selection in his replacement. There was a time when C.J. Henderson was considered a top-ten pick.
45 – Cleveland Browns: Xavier McKinney, Safety, Alabama
McKinney can’t tackle, which will hurt his draft stock; however, he does everything else at an exceptional level.
46 – Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Alaric Jackson, Offensive Tackle, Iowa
Man, a lot of teams in the NFL need help at left tackle. Add the Buccaneers to the list.
47 – Dallas Cowboys: Brycen Hopkins, Tight End, Purdue
The Cowboys were so desperate for tight end help that they had to lure Jason Witten out of retirement.
48 – Chicago Bears: A.J. Terrell, Cornerback, Clemson
The Bears defense is one of the best in the NFL. Adding a top-flight cornerback to pair with Kyle Fuller will only make them better.
