For the 2020 NFL Draft, Kevin Hanson's mock draft will be found on Sports Illustrated (The MMQB).
The unpredictable nature of the NFL draft is what makes it so exciting, yet that doesn't stop us from trying to predict it.
As one NFL general manager recently told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, "The media is wronger about mock drafts this year than you guys have ever been." If my final mock this year is only "as wrong as usual," does that mean I have exceeded expectations?
Given all of the moving parts of a virtual draft, front offices will face some potential communication challenges as teams are spread out. Earlier this month, long-time draft guru Gil Brandt speculated about the potential of "probably fewer" trades taking place. That said, I've projected a couple trade scenarios that I believe make sense.
With less than 24 hours to go, here is my final projection for the 2020 NFL draft:
1. Cincinnati Bengals: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU
The odds that Cincinnati passes on Burrow are slim-to-none (or 1,000/1, to be exact). In a draft full of intrigue, Burrow has been the wire-to-wire pick throughout the pre-draft process for good reason. Always composed under pressure, Burrow throws with pinpoint accuracy and uses his mobility to extend or make plays. Playing his best in the biggest moments of LSU's championship-winning season, Burrow brings leadership, intangibles and toughness to his home-state franchise.
