The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Sam Teets’ top 30 2020 NFL Draft prospects 1.0

Sam Teets’ top 30 2020 NFL Draft prospects 1.0

The initial analysis
Publish Date: 02/25/2020
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

With the NFL combine upon us, it’s time to dig into the best available prospects in the upcoming 2020 Draft.

1. Chase Young EDGE, Ohio St.

Young falls into the same classification that Nick Bosa did last year. He’s the best player in the draft but will get picked after a quarterback.

2. Joe Burrow QB, LSU

The LSU stud ran away with the Heisman and the National Championship in 2019. He should be the top pick in the draft.

3. Derrick Brown DT, Auburn

Defensive tackles may not be sexy early first round picks, but Brown is one of the few blue-chip prospects in this draft.

4. Jeffrey Okudah CB, Ohio St.

While analysts debate who the second cornerback taken in the draft will be, Okudah has his spot on lockdown.

5. Isaiah Simmons LB, Clemson

The linebacker-safety hybrid excelled at Clemson. Concerns about his size don’t hold weight. He may be the most versatile player in the entire draft.

6. Tua Tagovailoa QB, Alabama

While Tagovailoa may sit out his rookie season as he recovers from surgery, teams still view the Alabama product as a top ten pick.

7. Javon Kinlaw DT, South Carolina

The South Carolina product dominated during Senior Bowl practices before sustaining an injury that caused him to miss the game.

8. Jerry Jeudy WR, Alabama

By his sophomore year at Alabama, Jeudy already ran routes on par with NFL wide receivers. He should be the top receiver taken this year.

9. Andrew Thomas OT, Georgia

Thomas opened holes for D’Andre Swift and Georgia’s dominant run game this past season. He leads an elite class of tackle prospects.

10. Jedrick Wills Jr. OT, Alabama

Potentially the best offensive lineman in this class, the right tackle becomes Alabama’s latest star offensive lineman prospect.

11. CeeDee Lamb WR, Oklahoma

The Oklahoma product put together two consistent years of great film. Either he or Jeudy will be the first receiver taken.

12. Tristan Wirfs OL, Iowa

Wirfs played right tackle in his final season at Iowa, but he played guard in previous seasons. Some teams believe he could turn into an elite interior lineman.

13. Xavier McKinney S, Alabama

The top safety in the draft, McKinney offers a unique combination of run support and coverage ability. On the high end, he could become a smaller Harrison Smith.

14. Mekhi Becton OT, Louisville

Becton quietly built his draft stock up at Louisville. While he poses the most questions of the elite tackles in the draft, Louisville’s left tackle should hear his name called in the top 20 spots.

15. Henry Ruggs III WR, Alabama

Ruggs possesses unique speed, which makes him an outside candidate to become the best receiver from this draft class.

16. Grant Delpit S, LSU

Concerns about his tackling ability and some inconsistent tape he put up last season damaged Delpit’s draft stock. He should still go in the first round.

17. DAndre Swift RB, Georgia

The best running back on my draft board, Swift continues Georgia’s tradition of boasting elite running backs.

18. C.J. Henderson CB, Florida

Right now, Henderson holds the second cornerback spot. Florida has produced plenty of NFL cornerbacks in recent years, but not many of them thrive at the next level. While Henderson’s tackling raises issues, his man coverage looks NFL ready.

19. A.J. Epenesa EDGE, Iowa

The 6-6, 280 lbs. defensive end compiled 22 sacks and 30.5 tackles for loss in his last two seasons at Iowa. While his ceiling is lower than some other top prospects, his floor is much higher. In the ultimate guessing game that is the NFL draft, Epenesa offers a known factor that teams can rely on.

20. Laviska Shenault Jr. WR, Colorado

Physically, Shenault excites NFL scouts. He’s explosive and possesses rare physicality that should translate well against NFL corners.

21. Kristian Fulton CB, LSU

Since 2018, quarterbacks only connected on 40% of their pass attempts when targeting Fulton. His consistency and tackling raise questions. However, if Fulton can put it all together in the NFL, he could become the best cornerback from this draft class.

22. Kenneth Murray LB, Oklahoma

The second-best linebacker in the draft, Murray should hear his name called toward the bottom of the first round. He led Oklahoma in tackles (102) and tackles for loss (17) last year.

23. Justin Herbert QB, Oregon

While Herbert will go in the first ten picks, he’s not a great NFL prospect. Question marks dot his game, but some team will get desperate and snag him early.

24. J.K. Dobbins RB, Ohio St.

A potential late-first to mid-second round pick, Dobbins produced 2,250 yards from scrimmage in college last year. He surpassed Ezekiel Elliott and Eddie George for the second-most rushing yards in school history.

25. Tee Higgins WR, Clemson

While Jeudy excels in route running and Ruggs flies past defensive backs, Higgins is the classic big-body wide receiver.

26. Patrick Queen LB, LSU

A year after putting out Devin White, LSU could see another linebacker go in the first round. The rarity of ready-to-start linebackers over the past two years could inflate Queen’s draft stock.

27. K’Lavon Chaisson EDGE, LSU

While Chaisson flashed potential at LSU, he never put together a full season as an elite sack artist. In the past, LSU pass rushers have floundered at the next level. Maybe Chaisson will break the pattern.

28. A.J. Terrell CB, Clemson

A potential weapon in man coverage, Terrell flourished during his final two seasons at Clemson. He became a household name by intercepting Tagovailoa in the National Championship.

29. Justin Jefferson WR, LSU

Experts can’t determine Jefferson’s potential. Some view him as a late-second to early-third round selection. Others have him going in the mid to late-first round. Jefferson set a new LSU single-season record with 111 receptions last year.

30. Neville Gallimore DT, Oklahoma

Several defensive tackles, including Ross Blacklock, Gallimore, and Justin Madubuike, sit near the edge of the top 30 prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft.
