2020 NFL Mock Draft Rounds 2 and 3

Round 1 of the NFL Draft never fails to entertain and it certainly didn’t last night. Although at times it felt like it was never going to end, imagine how Xavier McKinney and Trevon Diggs feel? Carrying on we are in to the 2nd and 3rd rounds of my Mock Draft. As you may notice, there is some similar names from my 1st round mock, that is because those players have yet to have been picked. There will be descriptions in the 2nd round, shorter to none in the 3rd. Enjoy!

Round 2:

  1. Cincinnati BengalsCole Kmet, TE, Notre Dame. A bit earlier than expected here but the Bengals cannot risk the best TE in the draft falling off the board.
  2. Indianapolis ColtsJosh Jones, OT, Houston. Got to protect their new gunslinger in Philip Rivers.
  3. Detroit LionsRoss Blacklock, DT, TCU. Detroit will have a void to fill with Damon Harrison leaving the team on a defense that was already amongst the worst in the league last year.
  4. New York GiantsMarlon Davidson, DE, Auburn. Davidson can step in and provide an immediate impact filling in for Markus Golden who is still out there in free agency (somehow).
  5. New England PatriotsEzra Cleveland, OT, Boise State. New England will be brought in to pair with their new face at QB.
  6. Carolina PanthersZach Baun, EDGE, Wisconsin. Their two leading tacklers are gone from last year, Baun may be an EDGE guy, but this defense is in dire need of playmakers.
  7. Miami DolphinsD’Andre Swift, RB, Georgia. Miami had a busy night last night addressing QB, OL, and CB. Now it is time to get a running back.
  8. Houston TexansDenzel Mims, WR, Baylor. This big, fast, physical receiver will be a great addition to the passing game down in Houston.
  9. Cleveland BrownsJustin Madubuike, DT, Texas A&M. He will help stop the run for Cleveland. Safe pick, possible immediate impact.
  10. Jacksonville Jaguars Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin. It seems as though the Jaguars are also looking to shop Leonard Fournette. He is one of the RBs in NCAA history (yes, I said it), and can be their day 1 starter.
  11. Chicago BearsLaviska Shenault, WR, Colorado. Whether it is Foles or Trubisky back there making the passes, the Bears need a bit more firepower from the WR position. Shenault brings a lot of that.
  12. Indianapolis ColtsTrevon Diggs, CB, Alabama. Diggs is very battle-tested and has great upside. A big opportunity is there for Terrell to replace Pierre Desir’s spot in the defense.
  13. Tampa Bay BuccaneersJ.K. Dobbins, RB, Ohio State. Dobbins can be the missing link this offense needs to be the best in the league.
  14. Denver BroncosAntoine Winfield, Jr. S, Minnesota. This pick will give Justin Simmons a partner at the back end of the defense.
  15. Atlanta FalconsXavier McKinney, S, Alabama. Not sure how he fell out of the 1st round but the Falcons strike gold with McKinney here.
  16. New York JetsYetur Gross-Matos, DE, Penn State. Yes the Jets need a receiver, but they also really need someone who can sack the quarterback.
  17. Pittsburgh Steelers– Harrison Bryant, TE, FAU. Have yet to nail this position down since Heath Miller retired, they take another crack at it here.
  18. Chicago Bears- Lloyd Cushenberry, OG/C, LSU. The Bears struggled running the football with less than 4.0 yards per carry, Cushenberry can create the space Montgomery and Cohen need.
  19. Dallas CowboysAJ Epenesa, DE, Iowa. Cowboys get lucky again with finding elite talent falling to them. Early on in the draft process, Epenesa was a considered sure fire top-10 pick, he will show us why in Dallas.
  20. Los Angeles RamsCam Akers, RB, Florida State. After letting go of Gurley, they need this rushing game to still be a factor in order for the Rams to return to their winning ways.
  21. Philadelphia EaglesGrant Delpit, S, LSU. Get to replace Malcolm Jenkins with a Thorpe Award winner in the 2nd round.
  22. Buffalo BillsTyler Biadasz, OG/C, Wisconsin. When there is not a glaring particular need, cannot go wrong with an O-lineman from Wisconsin.
  23. Baltimore RavensTee Higgins, WR, Clemson. Ravens get lucky here with Higgins dropping to them. Absolute deep threat the Lamar will become fast friends with.
  24. Miami DolphinsJulian Okwara, DE, Notre Dame. Miami gets to address another need here.
  25. Los Angeles RamsKJ Hamler, WR, Penn State. Hamler can fill the void for Brandin Cooks and be a special-teams threat.
  26. Minnesota VikingsKristian Fulton, CB, LSU. Yes, they went corner in the 1st, but considering they let 3 go it wouldn’t be wise to let Fulton slip past them.
  27. Seattle Seahawks- Lucas Niang, OT, TCU. After letting go of Fant and Ifedi, Niang is a large tackle that can help protect Wilson.
  28. Baltimore RavensNeville Gallimore, DT, Oklahoma. Keeping a dominant defense more dominant with this pick. Good luck running against Baltimore adding Queen and Gallimore to the mix.
  29. Tennessee TitansJeremy Chinn, S, Southern Illinois. His physical, hard hitting play will be a great fit in Nashville.
  30. Green Bay Packers Malik Harrison, LB, Ohio State. His run-stopping ability is exactly what is needed up in Green Bay.
  31. Kansas City ChiefsJordan Elliott, DT, Missouri. Elliott can make an impact this season and give KC depth at D-line as they may look to make some changes.
  32. Seattle SeahawksJaylon Johnson, CB, Utah. Johnson can bring them some much needed depth in their secondary.

Round 3:

  1. Cincinnati Bengals- Robert Hunt, OG, Louisiana. Although they did make a couple signings and have Jonah Williams coming back from injury, they still could use more depth there.
  2. Washington RedskinsBryan Edwards, WR, South Carolina. They have speedy smaller guys in McLaurin and Sims, Edwards brings a true redzone threat to Washington.
  3. Detroit LionsSaahdiq Charles, OT, LSU. Addressed defense early on, now time to protect Stafford and create space for Kerryon.
  4. New York JetsLynn Bowden Jr., WR, Kentucky. Could potentially be the most elusive, versatile player in this draft. Adam Gase should be able to find a way for him to make an immediate impact.
  5. Carolina Panthers- Michael Pittman Jr., USC. Addressed defensive issues early, get your new QB a playmaker on the outside.
  6. Miami DolphinsDevin Asiasi, TE, UCLA. He climbed up draft boards late in the process, could be a potential upgrade for Miami.
  7. New England Patriots- Jalen Hurts, QB, Oklahoma. Should give Stidham some stiff competition in training camp, perhaps can be the next Dak Prescott/Russell Wilson type QB to dawn a new era in New England.
  8. Arizona CardinalsTrey Adams, OT, Washington. Could be a huge get for Arizona here to help protect Murray.
  9. Jacksonville JaguarsKyle Dugger, S, Lenoir-Rhyne. This D2 star has an opportunity to be a playmaker down in Jacksonville as they look to recreate their fierce 2017 defense.
  10. Cleveland Browns- Van Jefferson, WR, Florida. After OBJ and Juice Landry, it is slim pickings at WR with Callaway’s inconsistencies. Jefferson will be reliable for Mayfield.
  11. Indianapolis ColtsAshtyn Davis, S, Cal. If Malik Hooker is truly on the trading block, Davis can step in and make an impact immediately.
  12. Tampa Bay BuccaneersAdam Trautman, TE, Dayton. A pick for the future here. Howard and or Brate will potentially be traded and Trautman can learn from the best ever for a year behind Gronk.
  13. Denver BroncosJonah Jackson, OG, Ohio State. A ton of new talent being introduced to Denver makes this an easy pick for the Broncos.
  14. Atlanta FalconsCam Dantzler, CB, Mississippi State. Yes they did get AJ Terrell but that secondary could use another corner to play slot or outside, Dantzler can do both.
  15. New York JetsAlbert Okwuegbunam, TE, Missouri. Would love to hear a Jet fan from NY/NJ try to say his name. Herndon has a bunch of question marks, Albert can provide needed depth and security.
  16. Las Vegas RaidersBradlee Anae, DE, Utah. Undersized? Yes. Dominant senior year and senior bowl? Yes. Raiders take a chance here and add depth behind Crosby and Ferrell.
  17. Las Vegas RaidersColton McKivitz, OG/OT, West Virginia. Versatile, athletic offensive lineman with a bright future that can help pave the way for Josh Jacobs.
  18. Dallas Cowboys Amik Robertson, CB, La. Tech. While Byron Jones was elite and beyond athletic, he was not a playmaker (only 2 career picks), Amik is a bigtime playmaker and will be a sparkplug for this defense.
  19. Denver BroncosRaekwon Davis, DT/DE, Alabama. Incredibly athletic and versatile. Needs the right fit to start producing.
  20. Los Angeles RamsTerrell Davis, OLB, Alabama. Losing both of their leading tacklers from last year, Davis brings versatility and athleticism to make up for those losses.
  21. Detroit Lions- Logan Wilson, LB, Wyoming. Provides depth at linebacker and can help them stop the run.
  22. Buffalo BillsJabari Zuniga, DE, Florida. Can fill in for Shaq Lawson’s role of rotational pass rusher that can play against the run as well.
  23. New England PatriotsAnfernee Jennings, OLB, Alabama. Jennings can be a great fit with this defense coming from a very disciplined program in Alabama.
  24. New Orleans SaintsAntonio Gandy-Golden, WR, Liberty. A big-framed deep threat receiver. Can be very productive on other side of Michael Thomas.
  25. Minnesota VikingsJosh Uche, DE, Michigan. A viable pass rushing threat on the opposite side of Danielle Hunter.
  26. Houston TexansJacob Phillips, LB, LSU. Phillips was an underratedly, key part to the LSU defense this past season and can find a niche in Houston.
  27. Las Vegas RaidersMatt Hennessy, C, Temple. Rodney Hudson getting up there in age, Hennessy can be his predecessor.
  28. Baltimore RavensLogan Stenberg, OG, Kentucky. Stenberg is an absolute mauler and schematically fits this offense to a T.
  29. Tennessee TitansKe’Shawn Vaughn, RB, Vanderbilt. Has carried the load for Vanderbilt and kept that offense afloat during his time as a Commodore. Great second option to Henry.
  30. Green Bay PackersDonovan Peoples-Jones, WR, Michigan. Underrated weapon from Michigan that is also a special teams threat would be helpful for the Packers.
  31. Denver BroncosPrince Tega Manogho, OT, Auburn. Big, versatile offensive lineman to provide some depth protecting their young QB.
  32. Kansas City Chiefs- Joe Reed, WR, Virginia. Reed is a very electric player and someone who can fill in Sammy Watkins’ shoes when his contract goes up.
  33. Cleveland BrownsAkeem Gaither, LB, Appalachian State. Not often you can find a day 1 starter in the 3rd, Browns might have just gotten lucky here.
  34. New England PatriotsJauan Jennings, WR, Oregon. Big, tall physical receiver. A bit early but would be a great fit.
  35. New York GiantsDevin Duvernay, WR, Texas. Would be a great fit and security blanket for the Giants.
  36. New England Patriots Colby Parkinson, TE, Stanford. Great size and catch radius, NE loves their Tight Ends and I think Parkinson can thrive up in Foxboro.
  37. Seattle SeahawksJack Driscoll, OG, Auburn. They have been needing some help on the line for a while, starting to address that here.
  38. Pittsburgh SteelersTyler Johnson, WR, Minnesota. It would be a shame if the Steelers went this whole draft without a WR.
  39. Philadelphia EaglesWillie Gay Jr., LB, Mississippi State. Could be an immediate impact player.
  40. Los Angeles RamsEvan Weaver, LB, Cal. This tackling machine from Cal stays home with an opportunity to contribute here.
  41. Minnesota Vikings James Proche, WR, SMU. Proche has a high ceiling and is a big-time playmaker that can give Cousins a weapon.
  42. Baltimore Ravens- Bryce Hall, CB, Virginia. A devastating injury shortened his career but can be a solid corner in the league.

Learn more about these prospects here. Doing the other 3 rounds would be awfully ambitious, therefore I will make it to you guys somehow. Enjoy your draft weekend and you will hear from me soon!
