Guys, we are just a day away from the NFL Draft, how crazy is that? It seems like so long since my last mock draft, but really it’s only been about a month. That, to me, is just crazy. By now, we should have a clearer picture of each team’s needs after free agency, and hopefully these smokescreens don’t impact my assessment too much, but at this point in the offseason, it gets really hard to determine what’s real and what isn’t.
But, let’s kick this mock draft off with two picks that I refuse to change from my last mock because I simply cannot see a possibility of them being anybody else.
Now that the draft is upon us and free agency has — for the most part — played out, we all have a better sense of team needs. With that, I’ve given myself the liberty to add some definition to my original draft predictions. In fact, I surprised myself so much that a decided to develop a rapid-fire second round section at no additional charge to my readers!
Thank god, it’s draft week. After weeks of sports-less existence, we finally get one of the most exciting sporting events that doesn’t involve a single point scored. Today, we’ll be looking at this year’s crop of tight ends entering the draft. This group doesn’t have any generational talents at the position, but there are plenty of high-ceiling guys that are worth looking into to. Let’s take a look.
If you’ve been keeping up with the pre-draft process, you likely know that the wide receiver group is probably the deepest position in this year’s class, and it has the potential to shatter some records. There have never been more than seven wide receivers taken in the first round (2004) or 12 in the first two rounds (2014).
While I’m still hard at work on my next ranking of the ten best tight ends in the 2020 NFL Draft, I thought it’d be the right time to breakdown my thoughts on what the Redskins should do during the three-day event.
What comes with any team picking in the top five of the draft is the most intense form of smokescreens you’ll find. That’s no different for the Redskins, who have been the topic of discussion for months by T.V. pundits and bloggers like myself, particularly in regards to Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who many see as an upgrade over 2019 first-round pick Dwayne Haskins. We’ve also seen a lot of discussion over the trade value the pick holds because of Tagovailoa as well as Chase Young, who has been regarded as the best overall player in the draft.

The NFL Draft is now just over a week away, and draft season has upped its game with more smokescreens and gossip with each passing day. In preparation for the draft, we’re going to be looking at this year’s running back class. While not necessarily front-loaded, Jonathan Taylor and D’Andre Swift looking probably like the two most likely first round candidates, there are a ton of truly talented backs in this class that I think are more going to step in and immediately contribute on the big stage.
So, let’s start this list in style with the record-breaking Badger running back Jonathan Taylor.
Welcome to The 10, a new series were we’ll be discussing the top-10 prospects at each position in the 2020 NFL Draft. First, we start off with the good stuff: quarterback. While not a particularly deep class at the position, there are a handful of intriguing high-end prospects that have massively high potential at the position. Let’s take a look at how this class stacks up.
Yes, folks, it’s that time of year again. While the NBA and NHL seasons have been put on hold, the NFL is about to be in mid-offseason form. The NFL combine is over, free agency starts on March 18 and smokescreen season is back and better than ever. With all that, comes one of my favorite past times: making NFL Mock Drafts because I have a lot of time on my hands, and my passion for the NFL Draft has yet to wane.
Even though free agency will undoubtedly disprove a lot of my predictions on this particular mock, I think it’s the perfect time to start breaking down team needs and see where some players out of this incredibly loaded draft might end up.
So, let’s kick it off in style with a quarterback prospect that everyone and their grandma has essentially nominated as the golden boy of the 2020 NFL Draft: Joe Burrow.
