With a quarter of the 2019 in the books, Niner Noise offers up a mock NFL Draft for 2020, breaking down the first 32 selections and who goes where.
The 2019 season is a quarter of the way finished, meaning it’s already time for NFL Draft chatter in 2020.
Yes, it’s pretty early. But it’s never too soon. And while there are going to be plenty of changes in both draft positioning, needs and how collegiate prospects are rising and falling, it’s always a good exercise to see how all 32 teams’ top needs are panning out after four weeks of regular-season action.
One could argue it takes at least four games to figure out how any team in the NFL is coming together, either good or bad, anyway.
Using that criteria, along with players potentially hitting free agency or positions in need of an upgrade, Niner Noise dishes out its first regular-season mock, which will offer up some notable differences from the one we did earlier in the offseason.
Some teams are in hot pursuit of the No. 1 overall pick in 2020. There are also plenty of 2-2 teams around the league, which means the final order could be completely different than what is speculated right now.
For the 3-0 San Francisco 49ers, who owned the No. 2 overall NFL Draft pick earlier in 2019, signs are pointing to them selecting awfully late in Round 1. It’s been a turnaround season for the red and gold so far.
Including those Niners, and every other team selecting in the first round, let’s break down a quarterly mock for the first 32 picks.
And if you’re curious about the draft order we used, just click here (as of Sept. 30).
With that, the Miami Dolphins are now on the clock.
