The NFL Mock Draft for The People: lots of jobs, choices for each team


NFL Mock Draft

Some fictional versions tell you what’s going to happen, others tell you what should happen. This is the only mockup project that tells you what can happen. Welcome to the second annual Mock Draft for The People, the only mock draft that isn’t afraid to project too many trades while predicting the first selection for the 32 teams.

In addition, before I begin, I want to make it clear that the People Simulation Project is not affiliated with the short-lived ABC drama “For The People” and had little, if anything, to do with its cancellation. With that, we start …

1. Cincinnati: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU

He’s the best QB hope of the last three projects, and with Burrow, the first round 2019 Jonah Williams and AJ Le Vert forming a power trio of potential stars that Cincinnati didn’t have a year ago, the Bengals 2020 the are. . . better but not particularly good. Aside from that, there is not much to say except that for this clip of the character of Bob Saget from Tim’s life and times (modified to be safe at work):

2. Washington: Chase Young, EDGE, State of Ohio

Between Tua’s sustainability concerns and the difficulty of projecting Herbert from this mess of an Oregon offense, Washington cannot say with certainty that these are better long-term options than Dwayne Haskins. On top of that, if Jack Del Rio misses a chance to add Chase Young to his unit, it will likely play out like this.

3. Detroit: Jeffrey Okudah, BC, Ohio State

Lions general manager Bob Quinn knows that Isaiah Simmons is the man this defense needs. But he also spent weeks of self-quarantine browsing the Internet for fake projects and seeing each one, Detroit chose Okudah. And if there is one thing Quinn has learned in these weeks of isolation and self-reflection, it is that it is not popular enough to be different. Okudah therefore slides into the old role of Darius Slay of being asked to cover an opponent’s receiver 1 for 12 seconds on each hit.

4. New York Giants: Jedrick Wills Jr., OT, Alabama

Desperate for Isaiah Simmons, new defensive coordinator Patrick Graham has spent most of the past three months playing Google’s algorithm so that an image search for ” hog mollies “reveals this result:


Alas, Graham’s efforts are in vain; Dave Gettleman is a man from Ask Jeeves. Wills solidifies the disastrous right tackle of the Giants.

5. Miami: Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon

You can certainly say that Herbert’s physical traits allow you to build a larger system than you could with Tua, which will depend on rapid typing. The question is whether Herbert will ultimately succeed in any system that takes shape, while Tua (assuming good health) offers a much higher floor. That said, the Dolphins are clearly pushing through a tank-a-thon, so taking Herbert’s upper ceiling and having to unplug the plug in a year or two will not stick in their way as it would for many other teams.
