Top 100 Prospects
My Top Prospects for 2020 NFL Draft is very different from what you may be used to reading. I understand that not everybody is not going to agree, but let’s have some fun, mainly because the NFL draft is so unpredictable. Nobody truly knows what’s going to happen anyway, and that is the best part. To be able to have a conversation with other people that love the draft and learn from one another. With all that said, here are my Top Prospects. Enjoy!
1. Tua Tagovailoa Quarterback from Alabama – Top-rated player because of his timing, accuracy, and leadership.
2. Chase Young Edge from Ohio St – Top overall defensive player in this draft mainly because of his ability to wreck an offensive game plan.
3. Joe Burrow Quarterback from LSU – Joe Burrow had the best overall season by a college quarterback in the history of College Football. Was he a one year wonder or just a late bloomer. 6’3 221.
4. Jedrick Wills Offensive Tackle from Alabama – Played right tackle at Alabama but with his amazing footwork, he will have no problem playing either left or right tackle in the NFL.
5. Isaiah Simmons “Defense” from Clemson – The best Athlete in this draft. He can also play multiple positions including linebacker, corner, and safety.
6. Andrew Thomas Offensive Tackle from Georgia – Smooth lineman with great footwork that will become a future all-pro at the position.
7. Henry Ruggs Wide Receiver from Alabama – Electric speed along with dropping only one pass in 2019.
8. Jeff Okudah Cornerback from Ohio St – Tall cornerback with really good speed and ball skills. Also has the toughness you need to be able to lock down the other team’s number one receiver.
9. Jerry Jeudy Wide Receiver from Alabama – Best route runner in this draft by far.
10. Derrick Brown Defensive Tackle from Auburn – Will dominate the line of scrimmage for some lucky team for a long time. Best suited for a nose-tackle in a 3-4 defense.
11. CeeDee Lamb Wide Receiver from Oklahoma – His run after the catch ability is outstanding and should be a future star for the years to come.
12. Justin Herbert Quarterback from Oregon – More athletic than people give him credit for and can make every throw. However, he can also miss every single throw. Herbert can be one of the best quarterbacks in the league if he can find a way to be more consistent.
13. Javon Kinlaw Defensive Tackle from South Carolina – Big and athletic and will be more of a 4-3 defensive tackle.
14. Tee Higgins Wide Receiver from Clemson – Not the fastest or most athletic but can go up and get the ball with the best of him. And in my opinion, the best hands in the entire draft along with being a very good run blocker.
15. Terrell Lewis Edge from Alabama – Lewis is a little raw but very strong and all the tools you look for in an elite edge rusher.
16. Isaiah Wilson Offensive Tackle from Georgia – A monster offensive lineman who will be a new age James “Big Cat” Williams from the ’90s. Very good run blocker as well.
17. Tristan Wirfs Offensive Tackle from Iowa – Very athletic lineman who was a former wrestler.
18. Jonathan Taylor Running Back from Wisconsin – Top five running back in the NFL type talent with blazing speed. However, he had some fumbling issues at Wisconsin. Hopefully, he can clean that up with better technique.
19. Marlon Davidson Defensive End from Auburn – Has New England Patriot written all over him. Great player with an electric personality.
20. Trevon Diggs Cornerback from Alabama – New to the position but has gotten better and better under former Head Coach Nick Saban. Diggs’s best trait is his ability to catch the ball being that he was a former wide receiver and brother to Stefon Diggs.
21. K’Lavon Chaisson Edge from LSU – Very good athlete who can beat tackles around the edge regularly.
22. Mekhi Becton Offensive Tackle from Louisville – Great athlete for his size. He also had one of the most memorable combines ever. Should thrive in a run-heavy offensive scheme.
23. Malik Harrison Middle Linebacker from Ohio St – Most underrated player in this draft. A great leader and very reliable in pass coverage and in the run game.
24. Josh Jones Offensive Tackle from Houston – Athletic tackle who can also be a guard. His dominant senior bowl performance solidified his draft status as offensive tackle number five.
25. Jalen Hurts Quarterback form Oklahoma – Jalen has some things to get better at just like a lot of other quarterbacks in this draft. However, his leadership and running ability will make him a very attractive quarterback for years to come.
26. Justin Jefferson Wide Receiver from LSU – Jefferson is a very fast receiver who dominated the top teams in the College Football Playoffs this past year.
27. Clyde Edwards-Helaire Running Back from LSU – Clyde is the best all-around back in this draft. With his fantastic contact balance to go along with being a very reliable receiving option out of the backfield.
28. Antoine Winfield Jr Safety from Minnesota – Elite ball skills and could very well be the next honey badger.
29. Patrick Queen Middle Linebacker from LSU – Queen, filled in nicely for former first-round pick Devin White last year. Also, the best tackler at his position, especially at the goal line.
30. Donovan Peoples-Jones Wide Receiver from Michigan – Underrated because of Michigan’s poor play at quarterback. He will be a better player in the NFL than he was in College. Great athlete who had a 44 inch vertical and ran a 4.48 40 yard dash at the scouting combine.
