Two days of the 2020 NFL Draft are on the books, but less than half of the selections have been made. CBS Sports has sorted through the rubble to find the 25 best prospects available for selection on Saturday.
1. Curtis Weaver, EDGE, State of Boise
Weaver does a great job of descending blocks and shows an advanced level of hand combat. In the past three years, he has accumulated 34 bags. Few or no on-board rushers available have this level of production.
2. Bryce Hall, BC, Virginia
Hall has suffered a few injuries this season, but he shows potential in the first round when he is in good health. The cornerback does a great job of reflecting the rear field of the receiver and has a large size.
3. Tyler Biadasz, OG / C, Wisconsin
Biadasz was once projected as the first round pick. He also suffered injuries last season. Teams should value it as a potential difference factor along their internal offensive line.
4. Jacob Eason, QB, Washington
Washington’s big-arm quarterback is still on the board after watching Jalen Hurts get caught by the Eagles. Eason has a lot of advantages, but why was he only a one year starter for the Huskies if he is so good?
5. Netane Muti, OG / C, Fresno State
Muti is a healthy star. Unfortunately for him, he couldn’t stay healthy. His medical record is frightening and that’s the only reason he’s still on the board. The best capacity is availability.
6. Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn
The Prince of Nigeria is still looking for his NFL destination. It’s a bit surprising that he’s still on the board. Tega Wanogho has thrilling stretches of play on the left side. He emits a shock with his hands.
7. Akeem Davis-Gaither, LB, Appalachian State
Davis-Gaither has nothing to do on the board. He is a modern NFL linebacker who can cover from touch to touch. He is a bit undersized but does not give up any tackling ability. The North Carolina native is truly instinctive.
8. Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR, Michigan
Peoples-Jones is one of the sportiest receivers in this draft class. The problem is that athletics does not match its statistics sheet. To have his level of talent, he should have had a more collegial production.
9. Jack Driscoll, OT, Auburn
Driscoll is a sturdy option on the right side. He has been consistent for most of the season, but will not surprise anyone with his athleticism.
10. Solomon Kindley, OG, Georgia
Kindley is a vigorous interior offensive guard who can pave the way to the next level. Its frame makes it difficult to move and it uses it to its advantage.
11. Brycen Hopkins, TE, Purdue
Hopkins is more of a pass that catches the close end. Its slender frame does not offer much as a blocker. The Purdue product will not be everyone’s cup of tea but it should be someone’s … and soon.
12. Amik Robertson, BC, Louisiana Tech
Robertson is a nickelback but is a starter role in today’s NFL. He is small in size but big in determination. He plays much larger than his size and has a fiery attitude.
13. Nick Harris, OG / C, Washington
He’s a weak class of indoor offensive linemen and Harris is one of the best left. It offers versatility as a guard or offensive center. The Husky was a constant producer and should contribute to the next level.
14. Troy Pride Jr., BC, Notre Dame
Pride is another perspective with a future as nickelback. He’s a really smart player who can diagnose games quickly. He tested well at the NFL Combine.
15. Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR, Liberty
Gandy-Golden has a size and strength comparable to Julio Jones. He’s not as explosive as Jones but knows what to do with football when he’s in his hands.
16. James Lynch, DT, Baylor
Lynch was a surprise entry into the 2020 NFL draft. He shows explosive lightning but needs to become more consistent. The Bear is good value for money on day 3, however.
17. Trey Adams, OT, Washington
Before suffering knee injuries, Adams was considered a potential first round choice. He doesn’t have the dynamic game that made him so promising, but he plays with a medium streak.
18. Danny Pinter, OG, Ball State
Pinter played an attacking tackle in college but is expected to transition indoors. His setting suggests that he has a guarded future. With his ability to move, he could have a pretty good career in the NFL.
19. Calvin Throckmorton, OG / C, Oregon
The interior offensive portion of the big board has arrived. Throckmorton has shown a lot of versatility and consistency in Oregon. The teams will find him a place next season.
20. Ben Bredeson, OG, Michigan
Bredeson was a rock at the heart of Michigan’s offense. There weren’t many good indoor offensive line options at the start of the repechage, but the chickens came to roost on day 3.
21. Jason Strowbridge, DT, North Carolina
Strowbridge has some positional flexibility for playing on the board or indoors. He performed well at Reese’s Senior Bowl.
22. Logan Stenberg, OG, Kentucky
Stenberg plays with a medium streak that the teams love. However, he received unnecessary penalties last season and the teams dislike this aspect of his game. He is a bit taller than the average lineman, but should find a home early on day 3.
23. Geno Stone, S, Iowa
Stone is a well constructed safety with good instincts and ball skills. The Hawkeyes are still well trained and this could make them one of the first contributors to their next team.
24. Harrison Bryant, TE, Florida Atlantic
Bryant has room for improvement as a blocker, but teams that need a close ending will find good value with him on Day 3. He looks smaller on the field but presents himself well as a receiver of passes.
25. Sean Pollard, OG / C, Clemson
Pollard also has a lot of positional flexibility. Teams love players who can fill multiple roles at the same time because it allows them to potentially use a spot on the roster in another position.
