NFL Mock Draft 5.0: Giants resist trade, Jets grab flagged OT – New York Post,

The pandemic NFL draft:

Have the medical uncertainties compromised Tua Tagovailoa? Will they discourage a team from trading up with the Lions for him? Will social distancing realities and technological challenges make for less wheeling and dealing?

The Serby Mock 5.0, an appetizer for the Serby Mock 6.0 on Draft Day, has Giants GM Dave Gettleman and Jets counterpart Joe Douglas securing critical Hog Mollie help for their marquee quarterbacks and running backs.

The first round of this 15514623 NFL Mock Draft:

1. Cincinnati Bengals

Joe Burrow (QB, LSU)

Boomer Esiason opined that this is akin to LeBron James to the Cavaliers. Coach Zac Taylor will be thrilled if it turns out to be akin to Boomer Esiason to the Bengals.

2. Washington Redskins

Chase Young (DE Ohio State)

( Ohio State University is the place to find yourself an elite pass rusher. Won’t be as good a run defender as the Bosa Bros., but a scary bookend to Montez Sweat.

3. Detroit Lions

Jeffrey Okudah (CB Ohio State)

LB / S Isaiah Simmons and DT Derrick Brown should be in the conversation, but trading Darius Slay to the Eagles leaves a hole opposite Desmond Trufant.

4. New York Giants

Jedrick Wills (OT, Alabama)

This nasty plug-and-play right tackle should be picked up at the airport in a limo large enough for social distancing by Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley.

5. Miami Dolphins

Justin Herbert (QB, Oregon)

Bustin ’For Justin? Tua Tagavailoa’s medicals are a virtual nightmare for him and are sure to concern owner Stephen Ross. Can’t afford to gamble when you’re still trying to replace Dan Marino.

7. Carolina Panthers

Isaiah Simmons (LB / S, Clemson)

“You’re looking for position-less players,” coach Matt Rhule said. Here’s the 6-foot-3, -pound unicorn who can help fill the void left by Luke Kuechly’s retirement.

8. Arizona Cardinals
Derrick Brown (DT, Auburn)

Jordan Phillips was signed in free agency, but this is the best player on the board, and remember, the Seahawks and ers will run the ball down your throat if you let them.

9. Atlanta Falcons (from Jaguars)
C.J. Henderson (CB Florida)

Trader Thomas Dimitroff moves up for the sixth time in the first round because Desmond Trufant is now in Detroit and Drew Brees hasn’t reported to NBC yet.

Tom Brady is so thrilled when he gets this athletic bodyguard on the right side that he invites coach Bruce Arians to stay with him and Gisele at Derek Jeter’s mansion anytime he likes.

14. New York Jets

Mekhi Becton (OT, Louisville)

An anonymous scout informs us that the young man likes cooking more than he likes football. Well, as long as the 6-foot-7, – pound mountain likes football more than he likes eating, Sam Darnold and Le’Von Bell will celebrate … provided Douglas isn’t freaked out by his flagged combine drug test .

. Las Vegas Raiders
CeeDee Lamb (WR Oklahoma)

A yards-after-catch monster for Derek Carr who reminds some of DeAndre Hopkins. Antonio Brown didn’t pan out, in case you missed it.

The perfect nuclear weapon for Kyle Shanahan to help Jimmy GQ torment defenses alongside Deebo Samuel and George Kittle.

A disruptive 6-foot-5, 441 -pounder to replace Marcell Dareus and Calais Campbell.

. Dallas Cowboys

Kavon Chaisson (DE / OLB, LSU). )

Somebody’s gotta replace Robert Quinn’s . 5 sacks, and Jerry Jones better not put his eggs in the baskets of Aldon Smith and Randy Gregory.

. Miami Dolphins

Austin Jackson (OT, USC)

Doesn’t turn 20 until next month, but not too young to supplant LT Julian Davenport and be Herbert’s long-term blindside protector.

22. Las Vegas Raiders
Jordan Love (QB Utah State)

You have my permission to believe that Carr and Marcus Mariota will have Jon Gruden singing “Vi-va Las Vegas” in 2021.

. Jacksonville Jaguars
Justin Jefferson (WR, LSU)

Minshew Mania can erupt again if the mustachioed phenomenon has another weapon opposite WR D.J. Chark.

24. Philadelphia Eagles
Denzel Mims (WR, Baylor)

A 6-foot, 241 – pound big-game performer and Native Son injects youth and helps replace AJ Klein.

28. Minnesota Vikings

Xavier McKinney (S, Alabama)

An instinctive, versatile leader a la former Fish Minkah Fitzpatrick to help replace Reshad Jones in an elite secondary.

30. Seattle Seahawks

Yetur Gross-Matos (DE, Penn State)

Jadeveon Clowney remains in limbo, and Pete Carroll can never have enough long-armed, 6-foot-5, – pound pass rushers.

. Baltimore Ravens
Cesar Ruiz (C, Michigan)

Future Hall of Fame guard Marshall Yanda retires, and center Matt Skura is rehabbing a devastating knee injury. Can’t leave Lamar Jackson high and dry.

Trevon Diggs (CB, Alabama)

Free agent Logan Ryan is unsigned and Malcolm Butler ended last season on IR.

. Green Bay Packers

Josh Jones (OT, Houston)

A 6-foot-5, -pound project who can replace 32 – year-old Band-Aid RT Rick Wagner for Aaron Rodgers’ twilight years. Wait until Round 2 for a WR sidekick for Davante Adams.
