Grading and recapping all 255 picks from the 2020 NFL Draft.
The 2020 NFL Draft is in the books, and the 2020 NFL season is now hopefully on deck.
This season will be loaded with intrigue not only from all of the veteran player movement across the league but obviously with a loaded, star-studded 2020 NFL Draft class with impact players seemingly in every round.
The 2020 draft was definitely different, but the NFL pulled it off and in impressive fashion. This event served as a proof of concept, of sorts, that the league can point back to as something with record-breaking viewership despite no fans in attendance.
Ideally, teams would love to have their fans in attendance, but that may not be our reality for a while.
We’ll all have to wait and see.
For now, the league is planning on playing the games as scheduled. If that’s the case, there are some fascinating matchups between 2020 rookies every single week. I wrote about some of those matchups here.
Which teams had the best draft classes? In all reality, no one is going to know the real answer to that question for a few years. Draft grades are pretty much pointless until we actually see these players out on the field, but that doesn’t mean we can’t analyze the picks, player/team fits, and throw out opinions about which players were good values based on where they were selected.
My philosophy has always been to evaluate draft prospects with an optimistic outlook, but that doesn’t mean teams always make the right calls, either.
Let’s look through every draft class in the league and every single selection. We will use the original 2020 draft order to go through each team’s picks.
