Combined Three Round 2020 NFL Mock Draft

Both Connor Lervold and Beto Huerta are back with a combined Three Round Mock Draft. Lervold took odd numbered picks and Huerta had even numbered picks as we switched off working through the first three rounds of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Our individual mock drafts are fairly similarly aligned in the first few picks, but things start to differ in the teens. First up, as usual, is the Cincinnati Bengals, which means Lervold is on the clock.

Round One:

1) Cincinnati Bengals

Joe Burrow, QB, LSU

There isn’t much to be said for this pick. It’s still Joe Burrow all day.

2) Washington Redskins

Chase Young, EDGE, Ohio State

This is also written in ink. We don’t believe in the Tua Tagovailoa talk here. What’s more likely is the possibility of the Redskins trading back to acquire more picks.

3) Detroit Lions

Jeff Okudah, CB, Ohio State

Also written in ink, although maybe not at this spot. We would be very surprised if the Lions don’t trade back a few spots.

4) New York Giants

Tristan Wirfs, OT, Iowa

Jedrick Wills is the top ranked OT on both of our boards, but Wirfs fits the Giants better. He can play all over the line, both at tackle and guard. There is a lot of smoke regarding Isaiah Simmons here, which wouldn’t be a bad pick either to beef up the defense. But ultimately, they need to protect Daniel Jones.

5) Miami Dolphins

Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama

The most intriguing pick still lies with the Dolphins. There is a ton of talk that they might go with Justin Herbert over Tua, but we both have Tua ranked considerably higher than Herbert.

6) Los Angeles Chargers

Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon

I was really tempted to go with an OT here, but I just don’t think Tyrod Taylor is the answer at QB if you don’t draft one here. The defense is stacked and ready to win now, they just need a QB.

7) Carolina Panthers

Isaiah Simmons, LB, Clemson

The Panthers can’t pass on the versatility that Simmons brings. Their defense is horrendous and Simmons can play all over the field. He would have a strong chance at winning DROY if he ends up in Carolina.

8) Arizona Cardinals

Jedrick Wills, OT, Alabama

Wirfs going to the Giants at 4 means a perfect scenario for the Cardinals here. Wills is the perfect OT fit for the system they run in Arizona, and he would instantly be best friends with Kyler Murray (okay, maybe DeAndre Hopkins has the edge there).

9) Jacksonville Jaguars

Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama

This defense was once the top of the league just three seasons ago, and now it’s sort of embarrassing. But the Jags decided to trade away QB Nick Foles, which means they’re committing to Gardner Minshew. They need to help Minshew right away, and getting him the best WR in the draft is a great start.

10) Cleveland Browns

Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville

This is a pick both of us have been making here for a long time. The Browns will be a complete tram once they get a franchise LT back in the lineup.

11) New York Jets

Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia

This is also a pick that at least I have mocking for a while. The Jets could pounce on CeeDee Lamb or K’Lavon Chaisson here and they would be great picks, but you can’t pass on a franchise LT. The vast majority of starting LT in the NFL are former first round picks.

12) Las Vegas Raiders

CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma

It was really tempting to go with Derrick Brown here with him somehow still on the board, but the WR corps is just so bad. This probably shouldn’t be the only WR the Raiders select in this draft.

13) San Francisco 49ers (via IND)

Henry Ruggs III, WR, Alabama

Again, I almost went with Derrick Brown here to just replace DeForest Buckner and have far and away the best defensive line again, but Ruggs in their offense is just unfair. Imagine what Kyle Shanahan could do with Tyreek Hill on his team, that’s essentially what he’ll have in Ruggs.

14) Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Josh Jones, OT, Houston

This is a bit of a reach, but OT is far and away the biggest need for the Bucs. They had an underrated offensive line last season, but they need to put all of their resources into helping Tom Brady.

15) Denver Broncos

Derrick Brown, DL, Auburn

Stop the slide, and get the biggest steal of the draft. I doubt Brown falls this far, but needs always creates reaches at key positions like QB, OT, and CB. Von Miller, Bradley Chubb, and Derrick Brown? Watch out AFC West QBs.

16) Atlanta Falcons

C.J. Henderson, CB, Florida

The Falcons desperately need help at CB. Henderson fits the mold of Falcons’ CBs, and even though he’s a little thin, he’s quick and smart.

17) Dallas Cowboys

K’Lavon Chaisson, EDGE, LSU

The Cowboys lost Robert Quinn in free agency, and without a CB of value here, Chaisson is the perfect pick. Chaisson is one spot higher than Javon Kinlaw on my board, and EDGE is valued higher than IDL.

18) Miami Dolphins (via PIT)

Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama

The Dolphins shipped away a former Alabama safety in Minkah Fitzpatrick, and they replace him here with an Alabama safety. McKinney can play safety, cornerback, slot nickel, outside linebacker, and even inside linebacker.

19) Las Vegas Raiders (via CHI)

Javon Kinlaw, DL, South Carolina

The Raiders have a lot of holes on their defense, so they can go BPA here. Kinlaw, Clelin Ferrell, and Max Crosby would form a formidable defensive line. They addressed LB in free agency, so they can wait to draft one until later.

20) Jacksonville Jaguars (via LAR)

Ross Blacklock, DL, TCU

As mentioned before, the Jags defense has been stripped of talent. With not any CBs of value here, they can start rebuilding up front. Pairing Blacklock with Josh Allen is a good start.

21) Philadelphia Eagles

Justin Jefferson, WR, LSU

I still like Tee Higgins more than Jefferson, but Higgins is too much like Alshon Jeffery. They can start building a good WR room with different body types by going with Jefferson here.

22) Minnesota Vikings (via BUF)

A.J. Terrell, CB, Clemson

Terrell is my third ranked CB and I think he has the most upside if any CB other than Okudah. The Vikings need immediate help at CB if they hope to make it back to the playoffs next season.

23) New England Patriots

Jordan Love, QB, Utah State

I don’t think Love will still be on the board at 23, but I think the Patriots should trade up to get him. Don’t take this the wrong way, but Love has similarities in his game to Patrick Mahomes. With his upside, Bill Belichick can get the most out of him.

24) New Orleans Saints

Patrick Queen, LB, LSU

The Saints don’t have very many needs, but Queen would be a perfect addition to this defense. He would be a great pairing with Demario Davis, complementing his talents with the speed needed in today’s game.

25) Minnesota Vikings

Tee Higgins, WR, Clemson

The Vikings shipped away Stefon Diggs, so they can now pair Adam Thielen with a big body on the opposite side of the field. The Vikings needed to draft another WR on Day 3 to begin with, so now they can double dip in this great class.

26) Miami Dolphins (via HOU)

Austin Jackson, OT, USC

The Dolphins waited on an OT with the 18th pick and didn’t reach, and they still get the next best OT in this class at 26.

27) Seattle Seahawks

A.J. Epenesa, EDGE, Iowa

Jadeveon Clowney is still a free agent and if Seattle doesn’t resign him, then they really need help on the edge. Epenesa is bigger than Clowney, but I love his versatility. He can line up all over the line, but would be a perfect compliment to Clowney.

28) Baltimore Ravens

Kenneth Murray, LB, Oklahoma

Murray to the Ravens is one of the best fits in the entire draft. They still have a hole at inside linebacker after C.J. Mosley left last offseason. Also, Murray is the perfect antidote to Lamar Jackson, so this takes away the possibility of Murray being on the other side.

29) Tennessee Titans

Yetur Gross-Matos, EDGE, Penn State

The Titans added Vic Beasley, but I’m not buying that he will bounce back to a double-digit sack season. Either way, Beasley, Gross-Matos, and Harold Landry is a great trio of pass rushers.

30) Green Bay Packers

Brandon Aiyuk, WR, Arizona State

One thing is clear, the Packers need to draft a WR in the first round. Aiyuk is highly athletic, smothering that the Packers’ WR room is currently lacking.

31) San Francisco 49ers

Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama

I have Kristian Fulton and Jeff Gladney ranked higher than Diggs, but the 49ers love long and physical cornerbacks. Diggs is very similar to Richard Sherman, who he can complement and eventually replaced.

32) Kansas City Chiefs

Cesar Ruiz, IOL, Michigan

The Chiefs first and foremost need help on their offensive line. They can wait on a CB and RB in a later round. Ruiz can be Mahomes’ center for the next decade.

33) Cincinnati Bengals

Isaiah Wilson, OT, Georgia
