Everyone expects the Miami Dolphins to land the first overall pick in the 2020 Draft. This NFL mock draft doesn’t give them that power.
It’s never too early for a good old NFL mock draft. Whether you’re an NFL fan with an interest in how your team will improve, a college fan looking to see where your favorite players will be drafted, or just an NFL draft fan in general, it’s time to look forward to who teams will be taking in 2020.
Many thought the quarterback would be an immediate strength in this draft, but the competition behind frontrunner Tua Tagovailoa hasn’t really lived up to the hype. However, there are plenty of other strengths in the class. Specifically, this might be one of the best wide receiver classes of the 2000s. The running back group is also a strength, with Jonathan Taylor and D’Andre Swift carrying the way.
If your team is looking for help on defense, the cornerback class is outstanding. That works well, because many top teams are one cornerback away from being elite. Demand dictates supply.
As you read this mock draft, keep a few things in mind. For starters, I used Tankathon‘s draft order after Sunday Night Football on Week 5. If you have a complaint on the draft order, complain to the team records.
Because of the time I picked the order, something interesting happened. You’re probably used to a the Dolphins having the first overall pick and taking Tua. However, their bye week moved them down in the rankings. Because of this, Cincinnati ended up with the first overall pick. What will they do with it, and what will Miami do if their tank fails? You’ll have to keep reading to find out.
