Pre-Free Agency NFL mock draft

Stephen Bologna, Sports Editor

We are less than two months away from the 2020 NFL Draft. One of the most exciting nights of the year for football fans, the draft is filled with anticipation and excitement.

The 2020 draft class specifically is one of the most talented classes in recent memory according to many analysts.

Headlined by the top college football players in the country, the world will be waiting for the Bengals to go on the clock. The class is headlined by LSU quarterback, Joe Burrow, who is expected to hear his name called first.

But what about the other 31 first-round picks? In this mock, I will not be accounting for any hypothetical trades, as free agency has yet to begin.

The NFL combine just wrapped up so the 32 teams and their scouts are beginning to create their draft boards and target their players.
