2020 AFW Mock Draft

Yet another long list by John Turner
1: Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals:

Red Rifle out, Hometown Honey in. The only thing that could make this sweater for Bengals fans would be if Joe actually won the National Championship at Ohio State.

2: Chase Young, Washington Redskins:

The switch to the 4-3 makes the front 7 in the Nation’s Capital much better, Jack Del Rio and Rivera make it a top 10, Young makes them a top 5. The Dematha high school product should be a no brainer with this new staff.

3: TRADE!!! Tua Tagovailoa, Los Angeles Chargers:

Yeah let’s shake things up a bit. Head coach Anthony Lynn has been extended in the same month they let long time starter Phillip Rivers walk. Hmm. There’s definitely plenty of free agent quarterbacks available but I’m thinking they’ll sign a stop gap and make a power move.

4: Andrew Thomas, New York Giants:

Offensive line has been an area of need for quite some time in the Big Apple and Joe Judge now has the gavel. He wouldn’t be the first guy to take a foundation left tackle with the first pick of his tenure on the job. I’m sure Saquan Barkley and Daniel Jones would be on board with this as well.

5: Jeffrey Okudah, Miami Dolphins:

Brian Flores has a secure position and isn’t going anywhere. He showed he’s not in the business of tanking and he’s building a team, while shipping those that aren’t buying in. If Xavien Howard can stay out of trouble and off the injury report, this pick would make people forget the name Minkah Fitzpatrick quickly.

6: TRADE!!! Isaiah Simmons, Detroit Lions:

This is the modern day Adalius Thomas, or at least he better be. This would give the Lions two very versatile linebackers on a team coached by a man who learned from a linebacker hoarder. Lions will be plush with picks after getting the 2020 6, 37, and 71 overall, as well as next year’s first from the Chargers from the trade.

7: Jerry Jeudy, Carolina Panthers:
If Cam Newton is indeed being committed to, either because he’s healthy, or the Panthers are drafting too high to make the big move… They will have to display commitment with action. Jeudy is action personified. Jeudy, with Christian McCaffrey, and D.J. Moore spells trouble for the NFC South.

8: CeeDee Lamb, Arizona Cardinals:

Quite frankly, a reunion that makes sense. This is likely my favorite player in Larry Fitzgerald‘s final season. Kliff Kingsbury employs the spread offense. The Cardinals are in need of a player that can offset some of the DBs in the NFC West and get back into contention for the division.

9: Jedrick Wills, Jacksonville Jaguars:

Doug Marrone and David Caldwell have been retained. I’ll assume they know with good coaching and support, they’re sitting on a gold mine in Gardner Minshew. Therefore I’m taking an old approach. The best investment one can make is one in itself. Wills brings an immediate upgrade to an underachieving offensive line and allows for a little musical chairs without cap adjustment.
10: Javon Kinlaw, Cleveland Browns:

He’s a big man that’s for sure. Miles Garrett coming back, Greg Robinson maybe on the way out. Sounds like you take the most elite raw talent on the defensive line available to me!!! Lot’s of question marks in Cleveland and this seems live a move that comes off as common sense. Knowing the Browns, we probably won’t get that though.
