2020 NFL Mock Draft 16.0: Mocking Seven Rounds


Not only is the wide catcher the deepest position group in this year’s NFL draft class, but it is one of the best years for teams looking to improve their large receiving body.

Over the past decade, there have been an average of 31.3 receivers written per year, with a maximum of 34 (2014, ’15 and ’18). Based on my model of seven towers, 38 wide receivers will be recovered in 2020, including Mr. Irrelevant, the final choice of the project.

Given the depth at the receiver, teams may have to wait before meeting their pass capture needs and target other, shallower positions earlier in the project. Although no other position has more players in total, my false recovery of seven laps has more cornerbacks (six) and attacking tackles (six) than wide receivers (five) selected on the evening of ‘opening.



1. Cincinnati Bengals: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU

Given the unusual circumstances, this year’s draft may be less predictable than usual, but the Burrow-to-Cincinnati selection is as close as possible to one thing for sure. The 23-year-old quarterback, winner of Heisman, throws with extreme precision, maneuvers well in the pocket and uses his mobility to extend or play. Although he faced seven of the top 10 opponents on the road to an unbeaten season, Burrow was remarkably consistent from start to finish, but he did his best in the best moments.
