2020 Team Mock Drafts PACKERS

Even with GM BRIAN GUTEKUNST being a bit more adventurous building and maintaining his team’s roster than his predecessor, the PACKERS are still an organization that builds primarily through the Draft. With that in mind, I am eschewing the option of trading Picks around in my Mock, but BRIAN will not be so conservative is my guess right… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts DOLPHINS

As just about everyone knows, at least those interested in the NFL Draft, the Dolphins cleared out their roster before last season started and when the smoke cleared they possessed a league leading 14 Picks. Included in that number were 6 Picks in the Top 70, where starters are supposed to come from each year. I doubt the… Read More »

2020 team Mock Drafts RAVENS, PANTHERS, BRONCOS, LIONS

As always seems to happen, the calendar has outdistanced me toward the NFL Draft finish line. So it is time to double down and condense my Team Mock articles. I am covering 4 teams  in this entry, and omitting a thousand words per team by just giving Pick info without the thumbnail info. My apologies to teams fans… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts REDSKINS

Once again, it will literally be fascinating to watch the D.C. team operate it’s Draft.  There’s a new Head Coach in town by the name of RON RIVERA. And the team is still operated under Owner DANIEL SNYDER, with BRUCE ALLEN acting as DeFacto GM. However, I have a feeling that Coach RIVERA got himself a contract with… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts JETS

The Big Apple’s second franchise approaches their first full year under GM JOE DOUGLAS. He and his “guys” will be calling Draft Day shots for the first time next week. And it is an important Draft for a team that many see as finally making progress from a talent standpoint and having a full compliment of 8 Picks… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Draft VIKINGS

The big trade of STEFON DIGGS to the Bills last month left the Vikings with a treasure trove of 12 picks in this Draft, but it also left a rather large talent hole in their WR group, which was far from being deep in the first place. I would expect at least two wideout selections from them in… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts RAIDERS

It’s going to take me a while to get used to the Raiders being in Las Vegas. After all, they are the most traveled team in the League if you count them being in Oakland on two separate occasions, with L.A. sandwiched in between. However, when it comes to the Raiders 2020 Draft, the hardest part for me… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts DA BEARS

First, a quick note that I did some minor ranking changes in my Top 400 list. So if you are checking my work closely, you might see a player today, who had a different ranking in a Mock a few days ago. Kinda crazy, just like the real Draft process. Da Bears have 7 Picks, but are without… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Draft RAMS

The Rams Draft look just got markedly different with their trade of BRANDIN COOKS to the Texans. On the one hand, it gives them another Second Round Pick, but logic would indicate that it may have to be used for a replacement wideout for COOKS. Such is the dynamic of the NFL Draft just about every year for… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Draft CHARGERS

An awful lot of folks are of the belief that the Chargers will be looking to Draft a replacement for PHILIP RIVERS, despite the wave talk by Head Coach ANTHONY LYNN that he is comfortable with TYROD TAYLOR being his starter. Kinda sounds like how the COLTS talked about BRISSETT when ANDREW LUCK retired last year. There seems… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts SEA HAWKS

It seems rather contradictory to dismiss your projections in advance of making them, but I feel like I have to do that with the Sea Hawks. And I say that out of respect for the seemingly unorthodox way the dynamic duo of JOHN SCHNEIDER and PETE CARROLL work the Draft each year. Despite some raised eyebrows around the… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts BILLS

After making the Play -Offs again last season, it looks as though the Bills are truly on the right path to being a regular contender for the Super Bowl hunt. The leadership tandem of BRANDON BEANE and SEAN McDERMOTT seems to be clicking on building a steady, improving roster. They clearly see their window of opportunity widening with… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts EAGLES

I don’t want to be overly dramatic, but based on the Eagles roster that we saw late last season, this team is in dire need of some younger talent. A talented base still exists, but in a weak NFC East division, Philly needs to retool it’s roster with more talent and more youth. And heading into the home… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Draft CARDINALS

In the course of one year, the Cardinals have gone from a lightly regarded bottom feeder, to a team back on the rise. Last year, they hired CLIFF KINGSBURY as their Head Coach, and then drafted KYLER MURRAY, the Heisman Winner from Oklahoma, with a little help from GM STEVE KEIM. Then last month, they brought in WR… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts 49’ers

It looked as though the 2020 Draft was gonna be a bit uneventful for the Super Bowl runners-up until early in the Veteran Free Agent period, when the team decided it had excess dollars invested in their stellar DL and dealt DeFOREST BUCKNER to the COLTS. In so doing they gained a second First Round Pick (#13) from… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts COWBOYS

The Cowboys have been busy this offseason getting a new Head Coach in MIKE MCCARTHY and trying to get their big stars all signed, while finding the Cap money to do so. This past week they suffered a large setback with the retirement of OC TRAVIS FREDERICK. The team has 7 Draft Picks, with 6 of them in… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts COLTS

Is this the year that the Colts roster rebuild comes to fruition and they can make a run to and thru the Play-Offs? I bet a large part of the answer to that question is how well Philip Rivers fits into the offense in Indy. Coach Reich and several assistants worked with Rivers in San Diego thus lending… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts BROWNS

The new regime is in place for the Browns and GM BERRY is now purging many of the players that former GM John Dorsey had added to the team’s roster. So the old axiom of one step forward, two steps back, threatens to keep the team from being a legit Playoff contender once again, at least for this… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Draft Buccaneers

The Bucs have gone from laughable losers to a hot point of interest after their signing of VFA QB Tom Brady. Their ticket website has been a hotbed of activity since the signing, despite the fact that ticket prices went up double digit percentage points immediately. The Bay Area is blazing with excitement at the improved prospects for… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts FALCONS

The main front office players and Head Coach Dan Quinn are all back after a disappointing 2019 season. Owner Arthur Blank, who has been one of the steadier hands in the NFL ownership group, was won over by a late season winning surge by the team, which seemed to rally behind Quinn for a stretch run. Some name… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts SAINTS

Seems like April always rolls around and my projected Team Mocks are racing against the clock, even while NFL teams are still reshaping their rosters thru the Vet Free Agency period.  This creates problems for predicting how a team will shape their Draft choices to fit holes in their roster. And do not kid yourself. More than ever,… Read More »

PACKERS 2019 Team Mock Draft

This is Brian Gutekunst’s second Draft as the man in charge for the Pack. Last year saw him add some solid talent to the roster. But locker room dysfunction, injuries (especially to AARON RODGERS) and seemingly disheartened coaching efforts left the team fighting with Detroit for the bottom of the NFC North. The first post-season casualty was HC… Read More »

PATRIOTS 2019 Team Mock Draft

Only a few days left until the 2019 NFL Draft. I have revised my prospect rankings, hopefully for the last time. It’s time to take a look at the Super Bowl champs, who have a plethora of Picks this year, with 12, and 6 of those Picks come within the Top 101. In reality, we know based on… Read More »

GIANTS 2019 Team Mock Draft

I always enter into this mock with a bit of trepidation, and it is due to the fanaticism of GIANTS fans. They rank right up there with the most rabid, traditional franchise bases in the country, and right now the team is trying to rebuild under their most recent GM DAVE GETTLEMAN. They have made a lot of… Read More »

BROWNS 2019 Team Mock Draft

Unlike some of the teams that I have discussed and conducted Mocks for, there is no doubt at all who’s in charge with the Browns. JOHN DORSEY is in charge, and will make final decisions here, which is not intended to imply that he does not listen to his scouts and team personnel people. Like his mentor TED… Read More »
