1. Cincinnati Bengals – Joe Burrow, QB, LSU
The idea of Burrow having the leverage to dictate his landing spot is an interesting wrinkle. But it would be a major upset if he isn’t the starting quarterback for the Bengals this season in Cincinnati. The two sides met in Indianapolis, which should be the start of a productive partnership.

2. Washington Redskins – Chase Young, Edge, Ohio State
As expected, the buzz at the combine is the Redskins are moving forward with Dwayne Haskins as the quarterback of the future in Washington. Could they receive a trade offer from a quarterback-needy team that is too good to pass up? Possibly. But the most likely scenario is they stay put and draft the difference-making pass rusher.

3. Detroit Lions – Isaiah Simmons, LB, Clemson
This is where the intrigue starts. A trade is possible involving Tua Tagovailoa, but Detroit is in a great spot if they stay put, presumably choosing between Simmons, Jeff Okudah and Derrick Brown. The ideal modern-day defender, Simmons and his athletic, four-down versatility will be highly coveted.
4. New York Giants – Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville
The Giants are in a position to grab an impact defender here, but the chance to upgrade the left tackle position likely takes precedence in the eyes of general manager Dave Gettleman. Becton is a rare prospect with his impressive blend of size, strength and athletic traits.

5. Miami Dolphins – Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon
The Dolphins have done a nice job keeping their intentions close to the vest so far – some around the league believe they will go with Tua while others think it will be Herbert and then others think they will ride Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen in 2020, addressing the quarterback situation in the 2021 NFL Draft.

6. Los Angeles Chargers – Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
Tagovailoa is the wild card of the draft. Talking to teams in Indianapolis, they are taking a cautious approach, but until they can see him throw on April 9, it is anyone’s guess how high he will be drafted. With the Chargers moving on from Philip Rivers, their quarterback situation is obviously in flux.

7. Carolina Panthers – Jeff Okudah, CB, Ohio State
Okudah is the prototype at the position, making him a steal outside of the top five picks. He offers the fundamental size, athleticism and coverage awareness required to play cornerback at a high level in the NFL. His character would also be a great fit for what Matt Rhule is looking to build in Carolina.

8. Arizona Cardinals – Tristan Wirfs, OT, Iowa
The Cardinals locked up left tackle DJ Humphries long term, but the right tackle position remains one of the most significant needs on the roster. Wirfs, who can play either side in the NFL, put his explosiveness and fluid body control on display in Indianapolis, proving why he belongs in the top 10 picks.

9. Jacksonville Jaguars – Derrick Brown, DT, Auburn
With below-average numbers in the vertical (27 inches), broad jump (9-0), three-cone (8.22) and short shuttle (4.79), Brown didn’t have the performance many expected in Indianapolis. However, his tape still makes him one of the better players in this draft class.

10. Cleveland Browns – Jedrick Wills, OT, Alabama
The Browns desperately need to upgrade both tackle spots if Baker Mayfield and the offense are going to take a positive step forward in 2020. A right tackle most of his life, Wills has all the traits to be a Pro Bowl left tackle in the league, but there will be some projection involved.

11. New York Jets – Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia
The Jets are expected to be aggressive in free agency on the offensive line, which could ultimately swing the direction in which general manager Joe Douglas goes with this pick. Thomas, who played left and right tackle at Georgia, has some balance issues, but projects as a steady NFL starter.

12. Las Vegas Raiders – CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma
The Raiders are missing the big-play threat on the wide receiver depth chart, something that Lamb would address as a rookie. His football intelligence and YAC skills are qualities that general manager Mike Mayock and head coach Jon Gruden will appreciate.

13. Indianapolis Colts – Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama
A quarterback should not be ruled out here, regardless of whether the Colts sign a veteran like Philip Rivers prior to the draft. But whoever is under center needs more weapons and Jeudy and his electric play speed would fill a substantial need.

14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Jordan Love, QB, Utah State
If Jameis Winston returns to Tampa, it is expected to be a short-term deal, opening the door for the Buccaneers to draft and develop a talent like Love. With his intriguing traits, the Utah State product has the upside that should appeal to head coach Bruce Arians.

15. Denver Broncos – Henry Ruggs, WR, Alabama
The Broncos have a budding No. 1 wideout in Courtland Sutton, but adding more speed opposite him would help open the offense. Ruggs has world-class speed and his ability to shift gears puts cornerbacks in a blender, creating passing windows downfield.

16. Atlanta Falcons – Javon Kinlaw, DT, South Carolina
The Falcons need reinforcements on the defensive line, especially on the edges, but also inside where a player like Kinlaw can have an immediate impact. Atlanta went heavy on the offensive line early in last year’s draft and it wouldn’t be a surprise if they do the same this year on the defensive line.

17. Dallas Cowboys – C.J. Henderson, CB, Florida
Henderson has a chance to be drafted in the top 10 so this might be the latest he comes off the board. With Byron Jones destined to reach free agency, cornerback shoots near the top of Dallas’ draft needs. Henderson needs to be a better playmaker at the catch point, but he is a plus athlete with the size to blanket receivers.

18. Miami Dolphins (via PIT) – K’Lavon Chaisson, EDGE, LSU
The Dolphins don’t have a pass rusher on the roster who threatens opposing offenses and it is a good bet they will look to change that via the draft. Chaisson screams off the edge with speed and energy, which allows him to convert his momentum to power or close the gap when chasing.

19. Las Vegas Raiders (via CHI) – Patrick Queen, LB, LSU
A defensive playmaker has to be high on the Raiders’ wish list in the draft and Queen proved himself to be exactly that this past season, getting better with each game. One of the more explosive players in this draft class, his play speed, physicality and upside will be appealing to Mayock and Gruden.

20. Jacksonville Jaguars (via LAR) – Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama
A former wide receiver, Diggs made the transition to cornerback and isn’t yet a polished player, but his athletic traits and ball skills are highly intriguing. He probably won’t make an immediate splash like Jalen Ramsey, but he has the ingredients of a long-term NFL starter.

21. Philadelphia Eagles – Brandon Aiyuk, WR, Arizona State
The Eagles need an influx of speed and Aiyuk offers just that. An NFL scout said: “That home run acceleration is a nightmare. I’ll be crossing my fingers and toes that he doesn’t end up in our division.”

22. Buffalo Bills – Justin Jefferson, WR, LSU
One of the big winners from combine week, Jefferson had a near-impeccable workout, starting with a 4.43 40-yard dash and ending with an impressive performance with his field work. A sure-handed target who can get open will certainly aid in the development of Josh Allen.

23. New England Patriots – A.J. Epenesa, Edge, Iowa
Count Bill Belichick as one of the key decision-makers in the NFL who will trust the tape over subpar combine numbers. And that could potentially help a player like Epenesa, who didn’t shine during the athletic testing in Indianapolis, but his heavy hands and pass rush savvy helps him reach the pocket.

24. New Orleans Saints – Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama
If Vonn Bell leaves in free agency and Chauncey Gardner-Johnson stays in a nickel role, safety becomes a question mark for the Saints. McKinney will have spacing issues in coverage, but he limits mental mistakes, especially vs. the run as a downhill tackler.

25. Minnesota Vikings – Austin Jackson, OT, USC
With his athletic upside, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Jackson drafted much higher than this. But if he is still available at No. 25, the Vikings should be interested. The offensive line has seemingly been a question mark for the entire Mike Zimmer era, but adding a high-upside tackle like Jackson could help stabilize the front.

26. Miami Dolphins (via HOU) – Josh Jones, OT, Houston
In the most top-heavy offensive tackle class in a long time, it would be a surprise if the Dolphins don’t draft one of them in the first round. With five offensive line coaches over his career at Houston, Jones was somewhat of a late bloomer, but he has NFL starting traits.

27. Seattle Seahawks – Ross Blacklock, DT, TCU
The Seahawks added a TCU defensive lineman in the first round last year (LJ Collier) and they could do it again with Blacklock. If Seattle is unable to re-sign Jarran Reed, defensive tackle immediately becomes one of the more important needs this offseason.

28. Baltimore Ravens – Kenneth Murray, LB, Oklahoma
Although he can be late to sort through things at the line of scrimmage, Murray has nonstop speed with the competitive mentality that pops off the screen. His play style and character would be a great fit in Baltimore.

29. Tennessee Titans – Ezra Cleveland, OT, Boise State
If Jack Conklin signs elsewhere, the right tackle position becomes one of the biggest question marks on the roster. Cleveland crushed the combine, showing the athletic skill that matches the tape. The buzz in Indianapolis is he will receive first-round consideration from several teams.

30. Green Bay Packers – Zack Baun, LB, Wisconsin
A defensive playmaker, Baun emerged as one of the best pass rushers in college football last season. He will move to more of an off-ball role in the NFL where the Packers could unleash his athleticism in coverage and as a blitzer.

31. San Francisco 49ers – Marlon Davidson, DL, Auburn
If the 49ers are unable to bring back impending free agent Arik Armstead, they could look to address the defensive line with this pick. Davidson offers inside-outside versatility due to his impressive mix of power and athleticism for a 300-pounder.

32. Kansas City Chiefs – AJ Terrell, CB, Clemson
Although his performance in the national title game didn’t go as planned, Terrell’s combine reminded many why he is considered a first-round caliber player. Not only did he run a great 40 time (4.42), but his positional work was outstanding.

Second round:

33. Cincinnati Bengals – Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor

34. Indianapolis Colts (via WAS) – Jordan Elliott, DT, Missouri

35. Detroit Lions – Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin
The Lions would love to replicate the success of the 2019 Tennessee Titans, drafting Taylor to fill the Derrick Henry role.

36. New York Giants – Yetur Gross-Matos, Edge, Penn State

37. Los Angeles Chargers – JK Dobbins, RB, Ohio State

38. Carolina Panthers – Grant Delpit, FS, LSU

39. Miami Dolphins – Kristian Fulton, CB, LSU

40. Arizona Cardinals – D’Andre Swift, RB, Georgia

41. Cleveland Browns – Ashtyn Davis, FS, California

42. Jacksonville Jaguars – Tee Higgins, WR, Clemson

43. Chicago Bears (via LVR) – Kyle Dugger, S, Lenoir-Rhyne

44. Indianapolis Colts – Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia

45. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Isaiah Wilson, OT, Georgia
With Alex Cappa playing well at right guard, Tampa is in solid shape at each offensive line spot except right tackle — that is where Wilson can help.

46. Denver Broncos – Jeff Gladney, CB, TCU

47. Atlanta Falcons – Jalen Reagor, WR, TCU

48. New York Jets – Lloyd Cushenberry, OC, LSU

49. Pittsburgh Steelers – Josh Uche, Edge, Michigan

50. Chicago Bears – Cole Kmet, TE, Notre Dame

51. Dallas Cowboys – Justin Madubuike, DT, Texas A&M

52. Los Angeles Rams – Terrell Lewis, Edge, Alabama

53. Philadelphia Eagles – Jeremy Chinn, S, Southern Illinois

54. Buffalo Bills – Curtis Weaver, Edge, Boise State

55. Atlanta Falcons (via NE) – Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, LSU

56. Miami Dolphins (via NO) – Cesar Ruiz, OG/C, Michigan

57. Houston Texans – Jaylon Johnson, CB, Utah

58. Minnesota Vikings – Antoine Winfield, FS, Minnesota

59. Seattle Seahawks – Cameron Dantzler, CB, Mississippi State

60. Baltimore Ravens – Laviska Shenault, WR, Colorado
Who saw DK Metcalf falling to the 64th pick last year? Shenault could be this year’s version of Metcalf in terms of surprise faller who proves productive as an NFL rookie.

61. Tennessee Titans – Jacob Eason, QB, Washington

62. Green Bay Packers – Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame

63. Kansas City Chiefs – Robert Hunt, OG, Louisiana

64. Seattle Seahawks – KJ Hamler, WR, Penn State

Third round:

65. Cincinnati Bengals – Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn

66. Washington Redskins – Adam Trautman, TE, Dayton

67. Detroit Lions – Raekwon Davis, DL, Alabama

68. New York Jets (via NYG) – Michael Pittman, WR, USC

69. Carolina Panthers – James Lynch, DL, Baylor
Lynch maintains a close relationship with Matt Rhule and if the Panthers don’t address the defensive line in the first two rounds, this pick makes too much sense.

70. Miami Dolphins – Cam Akers, RB, Florida State

71. Los Angeles Chargers – Matt Peart, OT, Connecticut

72. Arizona Cardinals – Jonathan Greenard, Edge, Florida

73. Jacksonville Jaguars – Akeem Davis-Gaither, LB, Appalachian State

74. Cleveland Browns – Jordyn Brooks, LB, Texas Tech
With Joe Schobert likely exiting in free agency, the Browns’ new braintrust will look to bolster the linebacker depth chart in the draft.

75. Indianapolis Colts – Lucas Niang, OT, TCU

76. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Neville Gallimore, DT, Oklahoma

77. Denver Broncos – Matt Hennessy, OC, Temple

78. Atlanta Falcons – Bradlee Anae, Edge, Utah

79. New York Jets – Darrell Taylor, Edge, Tennessee

80. Las Vegas Raiders – Noah Igbinoghene, CB, Auburn

81. Las Vegas Raiders (via CHI) – Jalen Hurts, QB, Oklahoma

82. Dallas Cowboys – Malik Harrison, LB, Ohio State

83. Denver Broncos (via PIT) – Logan Wilson, LB, Wyoming

84. Los Angeles Rams – Damien Lewis, OG, LSU

85. Philadelphia Eagles – Jabari Zuniga, Edge, Florida

86. Buffalo Bills – Bryce Hall, CB, Virginia

87. New England Patriots – Albert Okwuegbunam, TE, Missouri

88. New Orleans Saints – Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR, Liberty

89. Minnesota Vikings – Gabriel Davis, WR, UCF

90. Cleveland Browns (via HOU) – Bryan Edwards, WR, South Carolina

91. Las Vegas Raiders (via SEA) – Jonathan Garvin, Edge, Miami (Fla.)

92. Baltimore Ravens – Julian Okwara, Edge, Notre Dame

93. Tennessee Titans – Damon Arnette, CB, Ohio State
On the field, Arnette fits exactly what the Titans covet — a battle-tested corner with the toughness and cover skills to play inside or outside.

94. Green Bay Packers – Ben Bartch, OT/G, St. John’s (Minn.)

95. Denver Broncos (via SF) – Jason Strowbridge, DL, North Carolina

96. Kansas City Chiefs – Van Jefferson, WR, Florida
