Preseason Pacific Takes 2020 NFL mock draft: Can three Pac-12 players go in Top 10?

New, comment

A preseason look at next year’s NFL Draft with a Pac-12 focus.

NCAA Football: Stanford at Oregon Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports
  1. Washington - Andrew Thomas T Georgia
  2. Arizona - Jerry Jeudy WR Alabama
  3. Giants - Laviska Shenault Jr. WR Colorado - The Giants desperately need receivers for their new, young quarterback to throw to. Shenault should stay healthy this year and make a run at the Heisman, making himself the first receiver off the board after Jeudy in a great year to be a receiver since there are so many young new starting QBs who need playmakers to catch the ball.
  4. Miami - Tua Tagovailoa QB Alabama
  5. Jets - Walker Little T Stanford - The Jets need to build around Sam Darnold and getting a franchise left tackle would be a great way to do that. Little could come in and start right away and should be the first tackle off the board after Thomas is gone.
  6. Buffalo - Grant Delpit S LSU
  7. Cincinnati - Jake Fromm QB Georgia
  8. Las Vegas - Justin Herbert QB Oregon - The Raiders need to rebuild in a new city with a new quarterback. A West Coast guy who is every bit as talented as the first two QBs off the board would help with that.
  9. Tampa Bay - Isaiah Simmons S Clemson
  10. Denver - Chase Young DE Ohio State
  11. Detroit - Derrick Brown DT Auburn
  12. Baltimore - Raekwon Davis DE Alabama
  13. Houston - Albert Okwuegbunam TE Missouri
  14. Tennessee - AJ Epenesa DE Iowa
  15. San Francisco - D’Andre Swift RB Georgia
  16. Carolina - Yetur Gross-Matos DE Penn State
  17. Las Vegas - Dylan Moses LB Alabama
  18. Green Bay - Nick Coe DE Auburn
  19. Atlanta - Jacob Phillips LB LSU
  20. Jacksonville - Trevon Diggs CB Alabama
  21. Seattle - Jaylon Johnson CB Utah - The Seahawks took a Utah defensive back in the second round last yer and I think can grab a franchise CB this year from the Utes. Johnson will compete to be the first corner taken in the draft and could go as high as the Top 10 if he’s good enough in 2019 and at the Combine.
  22. Cleveland - CJ Henderson CB Florida
  23. Indianapolis - Antonio Gandy-Golden WR Liberty
  24. Dallas - Collin Johnson WR Texas
  25. Minnesota - Paddy Fisher LB Northwestern
  26. Pittsburgh - Marlon Davidson DE Auburn
  27. Philadelphia - Najee Harris RB Alabama
  28. Chargers - Jacob Eason QB Washington - I think Eason’s a first round pick even if he just as a B grade season at Washington. His physical talent is that good. Just think about how great Justin Herbert has been at Oregon or Josh Rosen at UCLA and it makes sense that someone like Eason doesn’t have to do much to get drafted this high.
  29. New Orleans - KJ Costello QB Stanford - What did I say about Eason? The same could be said for Costello, who has actually proven a decent amount as Stanford’s starter. I could see these two Pac-12 QBs getting swiped up by good teams looking to stash a future starter behind their veteran star QBs.
  30. Kansas City - Trey Smith T Tennessee
  31. Rams - Trey Adams T Washington - I’m skeptical about Adams still being a first round pick due to the injuries he’s had, but most mocks seem to still think he can end up here for now. He could be a steal late in the first if he proves himself healthy enough in 2019.
  32. New England - Terrell Lewis DE Alabama
