2020 NFL Seven-Round Mock Draft: Patriots, Raiders, Chargers take QBs on Day 2; Steelers start with RB – CBS Sports,







See who could come off the board in April in our way-too-early seven-round mock draft












Rivalry Week is in the books, there’s less than a month left in the NFL regular season, and the actual draft is less than five months away. And while we’ve been churning out one-round mock drafts since early September, the time feels right to go big.

We have five quarterbacks going in the first three rounds – including two in Round 1 – and 15 wide receivers on the first two days in one of the deepest classes in recent memory. The Dolphins have six of the first 69 picks, while the Raiders have five of the first 92 picks. At the other end of the spectrum, the Bears and Steelers have just two selections in the first three rounds.

Which teams will cover the spread in Week 14? Pete Prisco, R.J. White and Will Brinson break down their picks for every game on the Pick Six Podcast, listen below andsubscribe herefor daily (NFL) Goodness.

Note: There’s no Tua Tagovailoa in this mock draft, but only because we don ‘ t know his status following hip surgery last month. Once we have an idea on when he’ll be healthy, he’ll promptly return to this list.

Compensatory picks are projections from Over the Cap.

(Round 1)

Round 2

33. Bengals: Josh Jones, OT, Houston
34. Giants: Bryce Hall, CB, Virginia
35. Dolphins: Tyler Biadasz, iOL, Wisconsin
36. Falcons: A.J. Terrell, CB, Clemson
37. Colts (via Redskins): Neville Gallimore, DT, Oklahoma
. Cardinals: Creed Humphrey, iOL, Oklahoma
39. Lions: Shaun Wade, CB, Ohio State
. Jets: Brandon Aiyuk, WR, Arizona St. 41. Chargers: Jordan Love, QB, Utah State

46. Browns: Ashtyn Davis, S, Cal
47. Eagles: Carlos Basham, DE, Wake Forest
. Colts: Zack Moss, RB, Utah
49. Bears: Jeff Gladney, CB, TCU
50. Bears (via Raiders): Alaric Jackson, OT, Iowa
. Rams: K’Lavon Chaisson, EDGE, LSU 52. Titans: Lucas Niang, OT, TCU
53. Cowboys: Paulson Adebo, CB, Stanford
54. Steelers: J.K. Dobbins, RB, Ohio State
55. Chiefs: Troy Dye, LB, Oregon
56. Vikings: Raekwon Davis, DL, Alabama
57. Texans: Damon Arnette, CB, Ohio State

59. Bills: Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson
60. Seahawks: Davon Hamilton, DL, Ohio State
. Dolphins (via Saints): Jabari Zuniga, EDGE, Florida
. Falcons (via Patriots): Alton Robinson, EDGE, Syracuse
. Ravens: Justin Jefferson, WR, LSU
64. Seahawks (via 49 ers): Jaylon Johnson, CB, Utah

The Bengals waste little time building an offensive line around No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow. Josh Jones had a fantastic season at Houston and with 2019 first-rounder Jonah Williams returning from injury in 2020, Cincinnati will have both tackle positions locked up for the foreseeable future. LIkewise, the Giants continue to reconstruct a depleted defense, taking Bryce Hall, our No. 1 cornerback entering the season, at the top of Round 2 (Hall missed much of the 2019 campaign with an ankle injury). With Philip Rivers in the final year of his deal, the Chargers use their second-round pick on Utah State quarterback Jordan Love, who will need a year on the bench before he’s ready to be an NFL regular. The Browns land safety Ashtyn Davis, who could move up draft boards with a strong combine performance, one round after taking defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, and with the very next pick, the Eagles get Wake Forest edge rusher Carlos Basham Jr. Basham is raw but a physical freak, and he flashed that potential on a weekly basis this season.

It sounds weird but the Steelers need to restock their offense and at No. 54 they take Ohio State’s JK Dobbins – it’s their first pick in the draft after sending their first-rounder to Miami for Minkah Fitzpatrick. At the bottom of the round, the Ravens give Lamar Jackson another weapon, this time out of the slot; LSU’s Justin Jefferson is coming off a fantastic season and he’ll provide another reliable middle-of-the-field threat for the likely NFL MVP. Utah cornerback Jaylon Johnson is the final pick in Round 2, and while he’ll upgrade Seattle’s secondary, he may not be on the board at this point come late April; a strong pre-draft season could even see him sneak into the first round.

(Round 3)

At the top of Round 3, the Bengals take another offensive linemen, this time Washington center Nick Harris. Hey, it doesn’t make sense to take a franchise quarterback and then let him get obliterated week after week (just ask Daniel Jones). With Tua Tagovailoa’s status still up in the air, the Dolphins focus on other needs. With their lone third-round pick, they add another offensive weapon in Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor. Several picks later, the Eagles get Minnesota’s Tyler Johnson, who has built a career out of making tough catches anywhere on the field.

The Raiders, meanwhile, take the strong-armed Jacob Eason. The Washington quarterback will need a year learning from the bench but he has all the physical tools Jon Gruden could want in an elite passer. Later in the round, the Saints take Denzel Mims, a dynamic pass-catcher out of Baylor, while the Patriots use one of their compensatory picks on Alabama edge rusher Anfernee Jennings, who may not have the pure athleticism of some of his Crimson Tide teammates but his non-stop motor would fit in with the type of players that excel in Bill Belichick’s scheme.
