Draft Position of the 32 Best 2020 NFL Draft Prospects, Predictions and Odds

In this draft, the best players will most likely not be chosen first, or even second, overall, since the team with the number one selection, the Cincinnati Bengals, need a quarterback more than anything else.

So, we go through the top-32 draft prospects from the 2020 class and list the over and under odds for the draft position of each.

The odds makers have given some players predictions and odds for what teams could select them, and we include those, as well, when they are provided.

1. Chase Young, EDGE, Ohio State (6-4, 264 pounds)

If the Cincinnati Bengals needed an EDGE rusher more than they needed a quarterback, they would no doubt select OSU’s Chase Young with their first overall pick, arguably the best overall athlete in this draft class.

Last season, Young posted 16.5 sacks in just 12 games for the Buckeyes and is expected to be an instant starter and contributor for whichever team selects him.

Most mock drafts, including WSN’s First Round NFL Mock Draft 2020, have Young going to the Washington Redskins with the second overall pick.

Odds provided by 888sport.

Team to draft player

  • Washington Redskins -1235
  • Detroit Lions +605
  • Cincinnati Bengals +1800
  • New York Giants +1900
  • Anyone else +2700
  • Miami Dolphins +5400

Player’s Draft Position

  • Over 2.5 +250
  • Under 2.5 -400

2. Isaiah Simmons, LB, Clemson (6-3, 238 pounds)

Even though Isaiah Simmons is considered (arguably) the second-best football player in the 2020 draft class, the Clemson linebacker most likely won’t be selected in the top five of this draft.

That is based on team needs, not Simmons’ talent – the Tiger had 104 total tackles (16.5 of those for a loss), 8 sacks, 3 interceptions and 8 passes defended in 15 games last season.

The WSN mock draft has Simmons going as the seventh overall pick to the Carolina Panthers.

Team to draft player

  • Carolina Panthers +225
  • NY Giants +400
  • Arizona Cardinals +600
  • Detroit Lions +900
  • Atlanta Falcons +1000
  • LA Chargers +1000
  • Cleveland Browns +1400
  • Jacksonville Jaguars +1400

Player’s Draft Position

  • Over 6.5 -148
  • Under 6.5 +120

3. Jeff Okudah, CB, Ohio State (6-1, 205 pounds)

OSU cornerback Jeff Okudah is third on this list after posting 3 interceptions, 9 passes defended and 34 total tackles last season for the Buckeyes.

Most mocks have Okudah being taken by the Detroit Lions with the third overall pick, a nice addition to a secondary ranked in the bottom of the league last season.

The WSN mock draft has Okudah going to the Detroit Lions with the third overall pick.

Odds provided by 888sport.

Team to draft player

  • Detroit Lions -110
  • Carolina Panthers +500
  • Atlanta Falcons +700
  • Arizona Cardinals +1000
  • Jacksonville Jaguars +1000
  • LA Chargers +2500
  • Las Vegas Raiders +2500
  • Miami Dolphins +2500

Player’s Draft Position

  • Over 4.5 -125
  • Under 4.5 +105

4. Derrick Brown, DT, Auburn (6-4, 326 pounds)

Brown was excellent at Auburn, posting 170 total tackles, 12.5 sacks, 8 passes defended, 5 forced fumbles and 4 fumble recoveries in his four years there.

A top-5 caliber prospect who will slip lower due to team needs, Brown will be an instant starter in the league for whichever franchise ends up taking him.

The WSN mock draft has Brown going to the Carolina Panthers with the 19th overall pick.

Odds provided by 888sport.

Team to draft player

  • Detroit Lions +250
  • Carolina Panthers +300
  • Arizona Cardinals +600
  • Jacksonville Jaguars +800
  • Atlanta Falcons +1100
  • NY Giants +1200
  • LA Chargers +1600
  • Cleveland Browns +3300

Player’s Draft Position

  • Over 7.5 +137
  • Under 7.5 -167

5. Joe Burrow, QB, LSU (6-3, 221 pounds)

One look at Joe Burrow’s numbers last season at LSU and it is obvious he is one of those once-in-a-lifetime players that will start immediately in the NFL.

During his school’s championship season last year, Burrow completed 402-of-527 for 5,671 yards and 60 touchdowns with just 6 picks for a completion percentage of 76.3, with a final quarterback rating of 202.0.

The WSN mock draft has Burrow going to the Cincinnati Bengals with the first overall pick, though most odds makers have not dared release any odds regarding Burrow so far.

6. Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama (6-0, 217 pounds)

Injuries have kept Tagovailoa out of the top selection conversation, but a look at his numbers (even during his injury shortened senior season) and it is obvious he is a special player.

Last year, Tagovailoa completed 180-of-252 passes for 2,840 yards (71.4 completion percentage) with 33 touchdowns and just 3 interceptions in only nine games.

The WSN mock draft has Tagovailoa going to the Miami Dolphins with the 5th overall pick.

Odds provided by 888sport.

Team to draft player

  • Miami Dolphins +100
  • LA Chargers +250
  • Jacksonville Jaguars +700
  • New England Patriots +800
  • Las Vegas Raiders +1200
  • Detroit Lions +1400
  • New Orleans Saints +2000
  • Carolina Panthers +2500

Player’s Draft Position

  • Over 5.5 +125
  • Under 5.5 -155

7. Jedrick Wills, OT, Alabama (6-4, 312 pounds)

Though Wills is technically considered a right tackle, the thought is that he could be converted to the left if a team needs him more on the blindside.

It is Wills’ relative speed that sets the 6’4”, 312-pounder apart from his competitors, with an ability to get into position quickly that gives him the advantage in most matchups.

The WSN mock draft has Wills going to the Cleveland Browns with the 10th overall pick.

Player’s Draft Position

  • Over 6.5 -110

8. CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma (6-2, 198 pounds)

Considered the best receiver in this draft class, Lamb should be one of the first at his position taken, though exactly where depends on how the top ten teams decide to select.

But given Lamb’s numbers last season – he caught 58 passes for 1,208 yards and 14 touchdowns, averaging an impressive 21.4 yards per catch over 13 games – he will not be on the board long.

The WSN mock draft has Lamb going to the New York Jets with the 11th overall pick.

Odds provided by 888sport.

  • Las Vegas Raiders +350
  • NY Jets +350
  • Arizona Cardinals +600
  • Denver Broncos +600
  • San Francisco 49ers +700
  • Philadelphia Eagles +1000
  • Cleveland Browns +2000
  • Jacksonville Jaguars +2000

Player’s Draft Position

  • Over 12.5 +135
  • Under 12.5 -167

9. Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama (6-1, 193 pounds)

Jeudy has the size, speed, and strength to be an instant starter in the NFL.

At Alabama last year, he had 77 receptions for 1,163 yards and 10 touchdowns, his second 1000+ yard, 10+ touchdown season in a row for the Crimson Tide.

The WSN mock draft has Jeudy going to the Las Vegas Raiders with the 12th overall pick.

Odds provided by 888sport.

  • Denver Broncos +300
  • Las Vegas Raiders +500
  • NY Jets +500
  • San Francisco 49ers +700
  • Jacksonville Jaguars +1000
  • Philadelphia Eagles +1200
  • Arizona Cardinals +1600
  • Atlanta Falcons +1600

Player’s Draft Position

  • Over 12.5 +125
  • Under 12.5 -155

10. Tristan Wirfs, OT, Iowa (6-5, 320 pounds)

Wirfs is one of the ‘top 4’ tackles in this 2020 draft class, and he should go somewhere in the top ten, given the need for players at his position.

Wirfs can pass block and create holes for the run game, and he can play on both sides of the line, making him even more draft worthy.

The WSN mock draft has Wirfs going to the New York Giants with the fourth overall pick.

Player’s Draft Position

  • Over 8.5 +125
  • Under 8.5 -152

11. Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville (6-7, 364 pounds)

Becton is seriously huge, both in talent and size, the surprisingly smooth-moving Louisville tackle measuring 6’7” and weighing in at 364-pounds.

The WSN mock draft has Becton going to the Arizona Cardinals with the 8th overall pick.

The WSN mock draft has Henderson going to the Denver Broncos with the 15th overall pick.

The WSN mock draft has Kinlaw surprisingly slipping into the top of the second round.

The WSN mock draft has Ruggs going to the San Francisco 49ers with the 13th overall pick.

The WSN mock draft has Swift going to the Miami Dolphins with the 26th overall pick.
