Post Legal Tampering- Round 1 Mock Draft (W/Trades)

  1. Cincinnati Bengals- (QB) Joe Burrow, LSU- As I’ve stated before, if they don’t take Burrow, I will eat this mock draft. This is the most obvious pick there is.
  2. Washington Redskins- (DE) Chase Young, Ohio State- Washington is throwing out ideas they like Tua, but this will be Young. Young will be an awesome fit for Riveria and co. and is the best defensive player in a loaded draft.
  3. Miami Dolphins (Via Detroit)- (QB) Justin Herbert, Oregon- I wouldn’t be certain this is Tua. Miami jumps up to get their man. Herbert has an immense amount of arm talent and should be considered qb2 in this class. Miami has had a strong off-season and is loaded with picks to build around a guy like Herbert.
  4. New York Giants- (OT) Mekhi Becton, Louisville- The Giants invested 44 million into their LB unit, so Simmons makes far less sense here than he did a month ago. The O-Line need is glaring, and Becton is a gigantic body that can help fill that hole.
  5. Detroit Lions- (CB) Jeffrey Okudah, Ohio State- The Lions trade down and still get the “sloppy” Okudah. Okudah is a stud, and I think it’s an obvious fit with the Lions likely moving on from Slay in coming weeks.
  6. LA Chargers- (QB) Tua Taglovailoa, Alabama- Tua lands in a good spot here. The Chargers bowed out of the Brady race, leaving a huge need in the post Phillip Rivers Era.
  7. Carolina Panthers- (S) Isaiah Simmons, Clemson- Simmons is an absolute weapon on defense. Playing all over the field, and he should help bridge the gap from Luke Kuechley. The Panthers bowed out of drafting a QB here by signing Teddy Bridgewater to an already above average Offense.
  8. Arizona Cardinals- (OT) Tristan Wirfs, Iowa- The Cardinals shocked the football world by landing Deandre Hopkins. Eliminating the need for a Ceedee Lamb or Jerry Jeudy here allows them to land a franchise tackle to help protect their investments.
  9. Jacksonville Jaguars- (DT) Derrick Brown, Auburn- The Jaguars have been fairly active in free agency on the defensive side of the ball, they continue to add to that side by adding Derrick Brown.
  10. Cleveland Browns- (OT) Jedrick Wills, Alabama- The Browns have made a clear effort to build around Mayfield. They continue to do that putting Wills and Conklin at the tackle spots for years to come.
  11. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Via NYJ) Andrew Thomas, Georgia- Tom Brady moves to Tampa, and they need to upgrade this O-Line or it could be disastrous. Trading up to get their guy makes a ton of sense here.
  12. Las Vegas Raiders- (WR) Ceedee Lamb, Oklahoma- The Raiders still land a good option here. Lamb and Jeudy are arguably level in potential. The Raiders may lean Ruggs, because of speed, but for now I believe this pick would be Ceedee Lamb.
  13. San Francisco 49ers- (WR) Jerry Jeudy, Alabama- The 49ers already elite offense, gets their #1 WR. Deebo and Jeudy should wreak havoc on the NFC for years to come.
  14. New York Jets- (Edge)- ( Via Tampa Bay) (Edge) K’Lavon Chaisson, LSU- The Jets have had a weird couple days, and still have a ton of holes to fill. Chaisson is the Edge 2 in this class and would offer great value in a trade back scenario.
  15. Denver Broncos- (WR) Henry Ruggs III, Alabama- The Broncos land the last of the big 3 WR’s here and couldn’t be happier. Drew Lock has a rifle and is a great fit for Ruggs III.
  16. Atlanta Falcons- (Edge) AJ Espenesa, Iowa- Atlanta needs to add to the D-Line. Espenesa is not as bendy as most would like, but still a solid player who excels against the run as well.
  17. Dallas Cowboys- (S) Xavier Mckinney, Alabama– Dallas was already looking to upgrade their secondary, but losing Jones and Heath made it even more vital. Mckinney is an excellent start, and one of my favorite prospects in this draft.
  18. Miami Dolphins- (OT) Josh Jones, Houston- The Dolphins missed on the top 4 tackles, but Jones isn’t a bad consolation prize. They got their QB, and continue to build a team to compete soon.
  19. Las Vegas Raiders- (CB) CJ Henderson, Florida- The Raiders addressed their biggest need at 12, and at 19 address their 2nd biggest need. The board fell perfectly for them here.
  20. Jacksonville Jaguars- (CB) Kristian Fulton, LSU- The Jaguars add Fulton to put opposite of newly acquired Denard. This gives them a decent pair of corners to roll out in 2020.
  21. New Orleans Saints- (Via Philly) (WR) Justin Jefferson, LSU- The Saints Jump up to get their guy. Jefferson, will slide in opposite of Thomas and hopefully give the Saints that second weapon they’ve been needing desperately to help Drew Brees.
  22. Minnesota Vikings- (CB) Jeff Gladney, TCU– The Vikings have lost two corners this off-season, so this need/pick has become much more obvious over the past week.
  23. New England Patriots- (QB) Jordon Love, Utah State- We all have our fingers crossed this doesn’t happen. I do believe they would need to trade up to land Love, but it’s to hard to predict where.
  24. Philadelphia Eagles- (VIA New Orleans) (WR) Jalen Reagor, TCU- Reagor is a good prize at pick 24. His ability is through the roof, but with shaky college talent around him, he had a tough time producing high numbers. The tape doesn’t lie though, I love this pick.
  25. Minnesota Vikings- (WR) Tee Higgins, Clemson- This is a pick that wasn’t expected a month ago. After losing Diggs in a trade, they replace him with Higgins who hasn’t tested well athletically, hence the drop.
  26. Miami Dolphins- (G) Cesar Ruiz, Michigan- The dolphins add a guard to help solidify this line, two OL in round 1 isn’t the sexiest of drafts, but it’s the smart way to go for Miami.
  27. Seattle Seahawks- (DT) Javon Kinlaw, South Carolina- Not a need at all, but in the past Seattle has shown they draft BPA and find a place for them. Good pick here, Kinlaw fell too far.
  28. Baltimore Ravens- (LB) Kenneth Murray, Oklahoma– Murray is a great fit for Baltimore, and at 28 seems like a no-brainer. Only argument would be for Patrick Queen.
  29. Tennessee Titans- (DT) Neville Gallimore, Oklahoma- Tennessee gets a guy that has enormous upside. For his size Neville is hyper athletic and is a good add to an already above average D-Line.
  30. Green Bay Packers- (WR) Leviska Shenault Jr, Colorado- Aaron Rodgers finally gets a WR2, Shenalut has taken a fall because of his pre-draft process and no pro day.
  31. San Francisco 49ers- (S) Grant Delpit, LSU- The Niners add another piece to an already great defense. Delpit would have been a top 15 pick in 2019.
  32. Kansas City Chiefs- (RB) Jonathan Taylor, Wisconsin- The defending SB champs add a piece for Andy Reid to play with.
