Everyone loves mock drafts, right? With the 2020 NFL Draft right around the corner, Pro Football Network will be publishing weekly mock drafts through the end of the draft in April, which will be held in Las Vegas.
The majority of our 2020 NFL mock drafts here at PFN are based on the current draft order at the time of the draft publishing. Furthermore, the drafts are published through the lens of both what we believe the teams will do and what we would do if we were running the team. Primarily though, it’s what we believe the teams will do based on what we are hearing around the league and what the primary needs are for each team.
There are many questions heading into this year’s draft. One of the biggest ones is who will be QB1? While it seemed to be a neck-to-neck race between Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and LSU Tigers quarterback Joe Burrow, that has now changed with the injury to Tagovailoa. How far will he drop, though? Our analysts’ opinions vary, and it’s going to be interesting to see where each of them slots these quarterbacks.
Beyond those two quarterbacks, where will Justin Herbert land? How about others such as Jordan Love, Jake Fromm, and Jalen Hurts? Moving from there to the wide receiver position, who will be the first one off the board? Jerry Jeudy, CeeDee Lamb or someone else?
On the defensive side, we’ll be looking at players like Chase Young, Grant Delpit, Derrick Brown, Jeffery Okudah, and others. Where will they land in both our mock drafts and the 2020 NFL Draft?
Be sure to check back weekly here at PFN for the latest mock draft from one of our draft writers, including PFN Draft Analyst and Insider Tony Pauline. Player stock and rankings change throughout the college football season based on their performance and information we receive. As such, the mock drafts will continue to change leading up and through the 2020 NFL Draft.
