Some obvious names missing here, but I really don’t think Jordan Love goes in the first round of the NFL Draft. Teams want to tank for Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence or Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields in 2021, and I don’t think we see many desperate teams wanting to trade up and take a raw prospect.
Iowa EDGE A.J. Epenesa and Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor fell out of the first round in my mock, while I think some fringe first-round talents like Wisconsin EDGE/linebacker Zack Baun, Clemson cornerback A.J. Terrell, LSU safety Grant Delpit and wide receivers Tee Higgins of Clemson and Chase Claypool of Notre Dame will go very early in the second.
That concludes the final mock NFL Draft of the draft season. Thursday the real fun begins, and it’ll be interesting to see what happens and who the newest player to be in the red and gold is.
