We are past the halfway point of the NFL season and we couldn’t go through the season without a Mock Draft. Without a further ado, let’s jump right into it.
1. Cincinnati Bengals – QB Joe Burrow, LSU
The Cincinnati Bengals are done with QB Andy Dalton and QB Ryan Finley doesn’t seem be the Quarterback of the future. The Bengals draft their franchise quarterback is LSU Joe Burrow. Burrow has rapidly improve as a quarterback and has been the best college football player this year.
2. Washington Redskins – OT Andrew Thomas, Georgia
Washington and OT Trent Williams seems to be on bad terms as he is likely out of the door this offseason. Washington will look to replace Williams here with the selection of Thomas who is the best offensive tackle in this draft and one of the best run protecter.
3. New York Giants – DE Chase Young, Ohio State
In Young, the New York Giants will get someone who can set the edge and get into the opposite backfield, cause havoc to the Quarterback.
4. Miami Dolphins – QB Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama
Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen are not the answers at Quarterback that the Dolphins are looking for. Miami Owner, Stephen Ross, has been very vocal on how he feel about about Alabama’s Quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa. He believe that Tagovailoa is the Quarterback of the future for the Dolphins and he will get Tagovailoa at 4.
5. New York Jets – WR Jerry Jeudy, Alabama
Jeudy is one of the best route runner in the draft and very explosive in the open field. In Jeudy, the Jets will get a WR1 who comply Quarterback Sam Darnold and Jets WR, Robby Anderson.
6. Atlanta Falcons – CB Jeff Okuadh, Ohio State
At six, the Falcons get a psychical shutdown corner in Okaudh. Okaudh is very physical at the line of scrimmage and can run with the top receivers. Okaudh can play both man and zone and will be able to fit into the Falcons’ scheme.
7. Cleveland Browns – LB Isaiah Simmons, Clemson
Simmons is a every down linebacker who has the sped to make tackle sideline to sideline.
8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – QB Justin Herbert, Oregon
Head coach Bruce Arians might not admit this, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are ready to move on from QB Jameis Winston. Herbert possesses prototypical quarterback size with a 6’6 frame with better-than-average athleticism and arm strength. In addition, he has protected the football well this season, throwing only two interceptions so far. Arians will plan around Herbert and knows a thing or two about developing quarterbacks.
9. Denver Broncos – DT Derrick Brown, Auburn
In Brown, the Broncos will get someone that is dominant against the run, Brown has become more disruptive against the pass, but his strength and athleticism should lead to more progress in that area going forward.
10. Arizona Cardinals- CB Kristian Fulton, LSU
No team has surrendered more passing touchdowns this season than Arizona, who has also allowed the second-most passing yards per game. With Patrick Peterson becoming a free agent in 2020, there’s no guarantee that he’s coming back. At ten, the Cardinals select Fulton from LSU. Fulton has the abilities to become a shut down corner and he will bring youth and depth to a Cardinals’ secondary featuring Byron Murphy and Budda Baker.

13. Jacksonville Jaguars- WR Henry Ruggs III, Alabama
Ruggs is extremely fast and can take the top off any defense. Pairing him with DJ Chark in Jacksonville will get Chark more looks and get Quarterback Nick Foles a deep field threat.
14. Oakland Raiders (via Chi) – Edge AJ Epenesa, Iowa
The Raiders want to get sacks on opposing quarterbacks and they will select someone who can get pressure not only on the quarterback, but can also get in to the backfield tackle the runner for a loss.

Hurts has improve drastically since his freshman year at Alabama. He can throw accuracy and will also be a factor in the Titans’ running game.
16. Philadelphia Eagles- Safety Grant Delpit, LSU

17. Oakland Raiders – WR Laviska Shenault Jr, Colorado

19. Carolina Panthers- IOL Tyler Biadasz, Wisconsin
Current Panthers’ center, Matt Paradis, has not been very good at center. Biadasz is the top center prospect in this year’s class, and could slot right into that offensive line.
20. Jacksonville Jaguars (via LAR) – CB Paulson Adebo, Stanford
Losing a top corner like Jalen Ramsey could be very tough for a team and it won’t be easy trying to replace him. They still have AJ Boyue one side of the field, but they will need to find another replacement soon enough. At 20, they select Stanford’s Paulson Adebo. Adebo is ball hawk and known how to get to the football.
21. Dallas Cowboys- Edge Yetur Gross-Matos, Penn State
The Cowboys face some questions this offseason in terms of their defensive line. Penn State Yetur Gross-Matos is very disruptive in the run game and would be a great addition to the Cowboys.

Dolphins select OT Alex Leatherwood who come in and try to replace Laremy Tunsil who was traded away to the Houston Texans.
23. Kansas City Chiefs- CB CJ Henderson, Florida
Cornerbacks Kendall Fuller, Bashaud Breeland, Morris Claiborne and Keith Reiser are all scheduled to hit unrestricted free agency. At 24, the Chiefs select Florida’s CJ Henderson. Henderson has excellent length and speed and while he doesn’t have any picks this season, he has six total interceptions in his previous two seasons combined.

Losing running back Kenyan Drake sting as the Dolphins will look to address their running backs need in the draft. They will look no further than Georgia’s Runningback, D’Andre Swift, who is very versatile and elusive. Swift will significantly upgrade Miami’s current depth chart at the position.
27. New Orleans Saints- WR Jalen Reagor, TCU
The Saints are still looking for another wide-receiver to go with Michael Thomas and Reagor might be the answer. Reagor is very explosive and he could turn out to be a young version of Ted Ginn Jr. Sean Payton will know exactly what to do with Reagor.
28. Seattle Seahawks – Edge Julian Okwara, Notre Dame
The Seahawks have a few needs on defense, but pass rush seems to be their biggest. They will look to address the pass rush by selecting Edge rusher Julian Okwara. Okwara is very long and possessive everything you need in a pass rush.
29. Baltimore Ravens – LB Kenneth Murray, Oklahoma
With sideline-to-sideline speed, Murray is a three-down linebacker and tackling machine that will come in and help the Ravens right away.
30. Green Bay Packers – ILB Dylan Moses, Alabama

32. San Francisco 49ers- WR Justin Jefferson, LSU
The 49ers need help at WR and they thought they got it when they acquired Emanuel Sanders from the Denver Broncos. After Sanders went down with a rib injury against the Seahawks, the 49ers wasn’t really able to muster up anything for the rest of the game. At 32, they select LSU Justin Jefferson. Jefferson stand at 6’3 has quickness and athleticism to make plays downfield. He will be a big target for Jimmy G come next season.
