2020 NFL mock draft: Three-round projections

We are less than two weeks away from the NFL combine, but before we kickoff the "Underwear Olympics" in Indianapolis, here's a reminder from your friendly neighborhood draft analyst: former Ohio State edge rusher Chase Young is the best prospect in this draft.

A quarterback will almost certainly be selected with the top overall pick. That quarterback will most likely be named Joe Burrow. In fact, quarterbacks will likely steal the headlines (as per usual) with the potential of five being selected in primetime opening night.

Regardless, Young remains the best prospect and wide receiver is the deepest position (I have five currently being selected in the first round). Still, quarterbacks will get the attention despite there not being five of them I'd consider worthy of a first-round selection.

Such is life in the NFL.

The NFL draft has become a nice appetizer before our main course in September. A mock version of said draft is meant to educate, and even entertain. At very least, it helps you pass the time.

The closer we get to draft day, the more I attempt to match what teams will actually do with their draft picks as opposed to what I believe they should do.


Last season, I was the fifth most accurate (out of 101) -- most accurate in print -- NFL draft prognosticator according to The Huddle Report. I'm 18th over the past five years.
