The 2019 NFL Draft just ended, but ESPN insider Todd McShay is never afraid to look ahead. This week, McShay dropped his first way-too-early mock draft for 2020. At the top of the draft, McShay had a pair of Alabama Crimson Tide stars going in Round 1.
Unfortunately for Josh Rosen, who was just traded to the Miami Dolphins from the Arizona Cardinals after the Cardinals selected Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick, McShay believes he will once again be ousted by a top pick.
McShay did not project the draft order, however.
Instead, the order was determined by Football Outsiders, using its early projected records for the 2019 season.
You can check out the top three picks in Todd McShay’s mock draft below, and head over to ESPN to check out the full first round.
2020 Todd McShay Mock Draft
1. Miami Dolphins – Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
Josh Rosen gets bumped by yet another No. 1 overall pick. Tagovailoa completed 69 percent of his passes last season, and he threw 43 touchdowns and only six interceptions. His 93.1 Total QBR trailed only Kyler Murray. The 6-foot-1, 218-pound lefty looks as if he could be the Dolphins’ long-term answer at quarterback — but most other teams likely to land the first overall pick would also take Tagovailoa without a second thought. He’s that good.
2. Arizona Cardinals – Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama
Well, the Cardinals certainly don’t need a quarterback. But they could definitely use a shifty, talented receiver like Jeudy. Tagovailoa’s favorite target caught 68 balls for 1,315 yards and 14 touchdowns last season, averaging nearly 20 yards per catch. He is very dangerous with the ball in his hands, and Kliff Kingsbury would love to have another dynamic player in his offense.
