The 2020 NFL Draft is in less than 100 days now. Here is a fun hypothetical one-round mock draft where we can see potential trading partners and see how that shakes things up.
There are only four teams still fighting for the Super Bowl 54 title. That means 28 fan-bases have turned their attention to the 2020 NFL Draft. Mock draft season is among us and fans are already figuring out their favorite targets in the first-round.
Some notable top prospects that had the potential to be drafted in the first-round have decided to return to school recently in Shaun Wade, Dylan Moses, and Creed Humphrey. Those are some huge hits to the 2020 NFL Draft, however, this is still a loaded class with a lot of potential first-round talent.
This mock should be taken as a fun experiment for teams that are potentially looking to move positions in the draft. There will likely be an exaggerated amount of trades in this first-round mock but should be looked at as an opportunity to discuss potential decisions and moves ahead of the 2020 NFL Draft.
There are a total of five trades throughout this mock draft. Some may seem irrational at first thought, but I think that each of these trades is very plausible and makes sense for both parties. Again, these aren’t necessarily predictions, but they are trades that we should be talking about as possibilities come April.
Joe Burrow to the Bengals is all but done by now. This has been the consensus number one pick for a while now, and he did nothing but validate this selection throughout the College Football Playoff. The Heisman Trophy winner and National Champion has all the tools you want in a franchise quarterback and will likely make a positive impact from day one.
The Bengals have a lot of question marks surrounding the quarterback and his path to success including Zac Taylor‘s ability to implement his offense and try to find success in it, as well as the potential that A.J. Green is no longer a Cincinnati Bengal in 2020. One thing is for sure, Joe Burrow is the correct selection and puts you on the right path for success in the future.
