The first-ever virtual NFL draft is just 10 days away. While Joe Burrow seems locked in at No. 1 overall to the Bengals, the rest of the draft is very much in flux. Here's a look at our latest three-round NFL mock draft.
Burrow was considered the likely No. 1 pick after the college football season, and nothing has changed. He won both the Heisman Trophy and national championship in 2019 and is the overwhelming favorite to be Cincinnati's choice. The Ohio native displayed drastic improvement in his senior season at LSU, completing nearly 76 percent of his passes and also showing above-average scrambling ability. The only major knock on Burrow is that he's old for a first-round prospect, set to turn 24 in December. Andy Dalton remains under contract, but the Bengals can cut or trade him without facing any cap penalty.
Young sat out combine tests, likely because the results could only hurt what is sky-high stock right now. Incredibly, Young recorded 16.5 sacks through his first 12 games this past season and has a chance to make a huge impact on a Washington defensive line that already has a lot of talent.
Darius Slay was traded, and while the Lions added Desmond Trufant, cornerback remains a major need. Okudah is the consensus top player at that position in the 2020 class. He is a shutdown corner with three picks in 13 games this season.
Nate Solder has been a bust for the Giants since they gave him big money two years ago, and the team could go to the well again at left tackle in a strong draft for the position. Becton needs some refinement, but he's a mammoth, listing at 6-foot-7, 364 pounds, with left tackle capability, and he ran a remarkable 5.10 second 40-yard dash at the combine.
Miami could trade up as high as No. 2 to take its quarterback of choice with a great arsenal of picks. While Tua Tagovailoa had a positive medical checkup recently, he remains a risk due to a long list of past injuries. Herbert is a great option, with optimal NFL size, and he completed nearly 67 percent of his passes this season. He also performed well at the combine, showing his athleticism with a solid 4.68 second 40-yard dash.
Tagovailoa was the consensus No. 1 overall draft choice entering the year, but ankle and hip injuries have given him the "injury-prone" label. The good news is that all of his medical reports regarding his recovery have been positive to this point, including a checkup last week. Before his season-ending injury, Tagovailoa completed more than 71 percent of his passes with 33 touchdowns in nine games, albeit with elite receiving weapons in Alabama. With Tyrod Taylor still on the team, the Chargers could buy some time before installing Tagovailoa.
With the surprising retirement of Luke Kuechly, the Panthers have a major need at linebacker. Simmons had a legendary combine performance, including a 4.39 second 40-yard dash and 132-inch broad jump. He's an extremely versatile defender who has potential at either linebacker or safety. The 6-foot-4 senior had 104 tackles and eight sacks in 15 games.
Arizona is in the market for a long-term replacement for Marcus Gilbert at right tackle. Wirfs can step in immediately, coming out of Kirk Ferentz's offensive line factory at Iowa. He also led all offensive linemen with a 4.85 second 40 time at the combine.
Jacksonville has seen serious turnover on the defensive line, which will continue if it trades Yannick Ngakoue, as expected. Brown has moved into top 10 draft consideration following an impressive year, recording 55 tackles and four sacks during the regular season.
Cleveland still has a need at left tackle and should have multiple strong options at No. 10. Thomas is one of the best offensive linemen on the board. Standing at 6-foot-5, 320 pounds, he can be an immediate solution.
The Jets have seen serious turnover along the offensive line this offseason and could put the finishing touches on their makeover at No. 11. Wills can step in immediately, has plenty of size (6-foot-5, 320 pounds) and tested well at the combine.
The Raiders are in desperate need of weapons to help Derek Carr and Co., and the additions of Jason Witten and Nelson Agholor aren't enough. Lamb has been nothing but productive in college and just finished his best season, with 62 receptions for 1,327 yards and 14 touchdowns in 13 games.
The 49ers got solid rookie production out of Deebo Samuel last year but need another wideout after losing Emmanuel Sanders. Jeudy had 1,163 yards and 10 touchdowns this past season and ranks right alongside Julio Jones and Amari Cooper as among the most talented wideouts to come out of Alabama in recent memory. His 4.45 40-yard dash at the combine was a strong time.
Tampa Bay was able to bring back Ndamukong Suh, Jason Pierre-Paul and Shaq Barrett, but another ferocious pass rusher could put their pass rush over the top. Kinlaw has increased his stock, with 35 tackles and six sacks through 12 games this past season.
After losing Emmanuel Sanders last year, the Broncos could use a No. 2 wideout to complement Courtland Sutton. Ruggs hasn't been as productive as teammate Jerry Jeudy, but he still has superstar potential. He's the fastest wideout available as he showed at the combine, running a 4.27 second 40-yard dash. He had 746 yards and seven scores in 12 games last season.
Atlanta was regularly beat at cornerback last season and has an inexperienced group on the roster currently. Henderson wasn't challenged much in the Florida secondary last year, but he had 33 tackles and 11 passes defensed in nine games.
Dallas has never met a pass rusher it didn't love and has already lost Robert Quinn from last season's squad. The team took a flier on Aldon Smith, and Chaisson can also fill part of the the void after recording 60 tackles and 6.5 sacks in 2019.
Miami's secondary already got a major boost this offseason by signing Byron Jones, but the Dolphins could still use help at safety. McKinney had 95 tackles and three picks this season as a true playmaker for the Crimson Tide.
The Raiders have been aggressive drafting secondary prospects over the last two years, but there's still a hole to fill at cornerback. The brother of Vikings wideout Stefon Diggs, Trevon remains a solid first-round prospect who could step in immediately at corner.
What a difference a year makes. The Jaguars had arguably the best cornerback tandem in football at the beginning of 2019, but now Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye are gone. Fulton has been a lockdown cornerback at LSU and certainly has the upside to return great value immediately.
No team in the NFL has a bigger need at wideout than Philadelphia, which moved on from Nelson Agholor and could also trade Alshon Jeffery. Jefferson is a polished route runner and ran a blazing 4.43 second 40 time at the combine. He's a strong prospect in a great wide receiver class, finishing last season with 111 catches for 1,540 yards and 18 touchdowns.
Minnesota really struggled at cornerback last year and has moved on from Mackensie Alexander, Xavier Rhodes and Trae Waynes. Terrell has been a regular starter at Clemson with a total of five interceptions over the last two seasons.
The Pats have yet to truly tip their hand on their intentions at quarterback. There's no more polarizing prospect in this year's draft than Love, who has first-round talent but is coming off a subpar season at Utah State. He might take a year or two to develop, but it wouldn't be a shock to see Bill Belichick buy the upside.
New Orleans has had some turnover at linebacker this offseason and is counting on Kiko Alonso to return from another torn ACL, so linebacker could be a priority. Queen's stock skyrocketed after a great 2019 season, with 85 tackles in 15 games for the Tigers.
Following the trade of Stefon Diggs, the Vikings seem likely to address wideout early in the draft. The 6-foot-4 Higgins averaged nearly 20 yards per reception for the second time in three years during 2019, and he had 26 touchdowns in his last two seasons.
Miami gave big money to Ereck Flowers but needs to continue rebuilding its line. Jones has emerged as a strong early-round prospect who could fill in immediately.
The possibility that Jadeveon Clowney won't return to Seattle looks stronger by the day, making defensive end a major need for the Seahawks. Gross-Matos has excellent size and speed and has been productive for the Nittany Lions over the last two seasons, recording eight sacks in 2018 and nine sacks through 11 games this past year.
Baltimore was able to manage without C.J. Mosley last year, but middle linebacker remains an area of need. Murray is a tackling machine and possible replacement, with 155 tackles in 2018 and 102 tackles in 14 games in 2019.
Tennessee lost right tackle Jack Conklin in free agency. If the Titans would like to improve on current replacement Dennis Kelly, Jackson is an interesting project who could step in immediately.
Green Bay still desperately needs a No. 2 target for Aaron Rodgers behind Davante Adams. Mims is an excellent red-zone threat with 28 touchdowns over the last three seasons and is a great physical specimen, standing at 6-foot-3 and running a sub-4.4 second 40-yard dash.
San Francisco's defensive line remains elite, but it took a hit after trading DeForest Buckner. Blacklock has shown nice upside despite a lack of big pass rush production in college and could play immediately.
The Chiefs were able to re-sign starting corner Bashaud Breeland last week, but the Chiefs still need much more depth. Johnson was a consistent contributor for Utah over the last two seasons and also recorded six interceptions over that time.
Cincinnati's secondary has been terrible in recent seasons, particularly at corner. Even after signing Vikings Mackensie Alexander and Trae Waynes, the Bengals might continue their push. An experienced player at TCU, Gladney saw regular playing time in all four seasons and is a strong press corner prospect.
The Colts remain in the mark for a true No. 2 wideout behind T.Y. Hilton. Aiyuk had 65 receptions for 1,192 yards and eight scores in his second season for the Sun Devils since transferring from junior college.
Detroit had thrown money at its pass rush problem, signing Trey Flowers for big money last year and adding Jamie Collins this offseason, but the Lions still have more work to do. Epenesa was highly productive again last year, his junior season, with 49 tackles and 11.5 sacks through 13 games, although his combine performance was less than stellar.
The Giants have some depth at wideout but lack star power after trading Odell Beckham last offseason. Reagor's production fell off last season due to poor quarterback play, but he really helped himself at the combine with a 4.47 second 40-yard dash and 42-inch vertical jump, second best in the wideout field. He had 72 catches for 1,061 yards and nine scores in 2018 before regressing last season.
The Chargers extended Austin Ekeler but could be looking for a second back to team up with him after Melvin Gordon's departure. Swift is an immediate solution as a versatile back with more than 1,300 yards from scrimmage in each of the last two seasons. He had a strong combine with a 4.48 second 40-yard dash.
Carolina still has high hopes for 2019 first-round pick Brian Burns but clearly still needs more pass rush talent. Baun saw regular work for an excellent Wisconsin defense over the last two seasons and finished this past season with 12.5 sacks.
Wideout is one of the most promising areas for the current Dolphins roster with Preston Williams, DeVante Parker, and Albert Wilson, but there's plenty of value to be had at the position in 2020. Shenault didn't have a great combine while performing injured, but he's terrific with the ball in his hands and has the potential for an impact similar to 2019 49ers rookie Deebo Samuel.
Davidson got consistent playing time in four seasons at Auburn, capping off his career with 48 tackles and 6.5 sacks in 2019. Houston got little pass rush last year when J.J. Watt was injured and still needs to fill the void left after trading Jadeveon Clowney.
The Browns had issues at safety last year, and the additions of Karl Joseph and Andrew Sendejo don't adequately address the problem. The son of the former NFL cornerback, Winfield Jr. took a huge step forward last season with 83 tackles and seven picks.
The interior of the offensive line is certainly an area the Jags can improve on. Ruiz is arguably the top interior lineman available in the draft and should be able to step in Week 1.
Chicago has a star at safety in Eddie Jackson but lost fellow safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix after a strong 2019 season. Delpit is among the elite safeties on the board, with 65 tackles and two picks in 14 games this past season.
Indy allowed Eric Ebron to walk in free agency and will almost certainly make receivers a priority in the draft. Kmet shows huge upside as a pass catcher after finishing with 43 catches for 515 yards and six touchdowns in 10 games last season.
Ronald Jones showed some development in his sophomore season, but the Bucs could use another talent to challenge him. Dobbins was highly productive in three seasons at Ohio State and rushed for more than 2,000 yards last season.
Former first-round pick Garett Bolles has been inconsistent through three seasons, and the Broncos could choose to take his long-term replacement now. Cleveland is a solid prospect and could fill in as a depth option this year.
Atlanta gave big money to Dante Fowler this offseason but needs more pass rushers. Lewis had six sacks in 10 games last season. He's a project but has the physical tools to be a star if he can stay healthy.
The Jets allowed Robby Anderson to walk in the offseason and now lack a big-play threat. The son of the former running back, Pittman Jr. had a huge senior season at USC with 101 catches for 1,275 yard and 11 touchdowns and could be a red-zone fiend at 6-foot-4.
James Conner struggled in his second season as Pittsburgh's starting running back, and Benny Snell also failed to pick up the slack. Taylor is a perfect candidate to be the top back, running for 2,000 yards in each of the last two seasons and tearing up the combine with a 4.39 second 40-yards dash.
Chicago currently has a void at defensive end. Gallimore is a potential load in the middle but also has some pass rush skills, recording seven sacks over the last two seasons.
The Cowboys need more cornerback depth after losing Byron Jones in free agency. Arnette saw significant snaps for four seasons at Ohio State and could help the Cowboys immediately.
The Rams loss of Dante Fowler puts them in the market for an edge rusher. Okwara has good size and could be given time to develop after playing well over the last two seasons for the Fighting Irish.
Philly did much to fix its cornerback issues by acquiring Darius Slay but could benefit from even more depth. A converted wideout, Igbinoghene is slightly undersized at 5-foot-11 but has plenty of upside.
Buffalo added veteran Josh Norman this offseason, but it remains to be seen if he can rebound. Dantzler lacks top-end speed but shows nice upside as a man coverage corner.
Baltimore spent a first-round pick on Marquise Brown last offseason but still has room to improve at wide receiver. Hamler is undersized at 5-foot-9 but has a chance to be an excellent slot receiver. He had 56 catches for 904 yards and eight touchdowns last season for Penn State.
Miami has added Jordan Howard this offseason, but his recent decline puts into question whether he's still an option as a leading rusher. Edwards-Helaire is one of the most versatile backs in the draft, finishing last season with 55 receptions and more than 1,800 yards from scrimmage.
The Rams are young at safety, with 2019 second-round pick Taylor Rapp likely locked into one spot. Chinn made a great impression at the combine with a 4.45 second 40-yard dash and could make for a great long-term safety tandem next to Rapp.
The loss of Everson Griffen leaves a hole at defensive end for the Vikings. Weaver had 34 sacks in three seasons at Boise State and shows potential as a pass rushing specialist.
The losses of Germain Ifedi and George Fant have thinned out Seattle's offensive line. Wilson is a mammoth at 6-foot-6, 350 pounds and could be an immediate replacement.
Baltimore has a strong safety pairing with Earl Thomas and Chuck Clark but could add further depth in a solid draft for safeties. Dugger might need time to catch up to the NFL speed but has clear upside for a late second-round price.
The loss of cornerback Logan Ryan puts the position on Tennessee's radar. Hall's stock could be hurt after missing time with an ankle injury last year, but he has the ability to play immediately in the NFL if he can bounce back.
The Packers need more defensive line talent next to star nose tackle Kenny Clark. Elliott has ample size to plug up the middle at 6-foot-4, 315 pounds.
The Chiefs got another great playoff push from Damien Williams last year, but his durability is still a question mark. The versatile Akers had two 1,000 yard rushing seasons at Florida State and ran a solid 4.47 second 40 time at the combine. His versatility fits Andy Reid's offense.
The Seahawks got great value out of DK Metcalf in last year's draft and could have their eyes on a similarly athletic prospect in the second round this year. Claypool is a physical freak with the college production to back it up, with 1,037 yards and 13 touchdowns last season.
Cincinnati needs help at linebacker but doesn't have to look far to get it. Harrison was a tackling machine for the Buckeyes over the last two seasons, including 16.5 tackles for loss in his senior year.
Washington potentially has several openings for playing time along its offensive line. Cushenberry is a potential plug-and-play starter and arguably the top center on the board this year.
Detroit could add defensive tackle help after releasing "Snacks" Harrison. Madubuike is a load on the interior and recorded 5.5 sacks in each of the last two seasons.
Cornerback seems like a revolving door for the Jets, who signed Pierre Desir but still need addition corners. Pride helped himself with a 4.4 second 40 time at the combine and has plenty of playing experience coming out of Notre Dame.
Carolina needs immediate talent at guard. Biadasz has plug-and-play written all over him after a great career at Wisconsin, though most of his experience is at center.
Miami added Shaq Lawson and Kyle Van Noy in the offseason but could continue to add pass rushers in the draft. Uche shows big upside after recording 14.5 sacks in 21 games over the last two seasons.
Derwin James' injury last year exposed the Chargers lack of safety depth. Davis was an excellent playmaker at Cal and has impressive physical ability, also running track in college.
Arizona is in the market for more depth up front. Davis faded at Alabama after a great 2017 season but has the physical tools to be a load at the next level if he can put it all together.
The Jags spent big money on Joe Schobert this offseason, but still need help at strong-side linebacker. Brooks has been a tackling machine for most of his career at Texas Tech, with 360 career tackles, including 108 last year.
Cleveland could potentially add competition for Wyatt Teller at right guard. Hunt has ample size and even has potential to move to tackle down the line.
Philip Rivers is set to hold down the fort for the Colts this year, but who knows what will happen in 2021? Hurts is gaining steam after his great career between Alabama and Oklahoma. He has elite mobility and more arm talent than he's given credit for, nearly completing 70 percent of his passes for the Sooners last season.
The Bucs have installed Tom Brady as their starter but would still be smart to plan beyond the 43-year-old. Eason failed to put up big numbers in college between Georgia and Washington, but his prototypical NFL passer size and arm strength should make him an interesting developmental project.
Inside linebacker continues to be an area of need for the Broncos. Dye had 391 career tackles in four seasons at Oregon and is a solid Day 2 option.
Atlanta has yet to truly address the loss of Mohamed Sanu, whom they traded to New England last year. Edwards has good size at 6-foot-3 and was a consistent performer in four seasons for the Gamecocks.
Finding quality edge rushers has been a problem for the Jets lately. Anae recorded 13 sacks last season and could be a nice pass-rushing specialist immediately.
While the Raiders are set at guard, current starter Richie Incognito will be 37 at the start of the season. Muti has been terrific when on the field and had an impressive 44 bench press reps at the combine. Staying healthy has been an issue for him though.
The Raiders defensive line investment could continue with a player who has major pass rush upside. Lynch had a huge junior season at Baylor with 13.5 sacks in 14 games.
The Cowboys offensive line depth has talent a hit this offseason. Peart is a massive tackle prospect at 6-foot-7 who could develop at right tackle.
Denver has revamped its secondary this offseason but could still use more cornerback depth. Green saw regular playing time in three seasons for Oklahoma State and has good size (6-foot-1) to play in Denver's current defensive scheme.
The Rams offensive line became an issue last season, particularly on the interior. Kindley is a mammoth at 6-foot-3, 337 pounds and could challenge for a starting spot.
The Lions could force competition with no clear starter at right guard currently. Lewis is a running game mauler who should be able to start from Day 1, and Baltimore's offense would be the perfect fit.
Buffalo has multiple veterans setting the edge and could use some youth behind them. Greenard had 10 sacks last season and could be an interesting pass-rushing specialist.
The Patriots lost Jamie Collins and Kyle Van Noy this offseason, so linebacker is one area they'll likely address in the draft. Davis-Gaither has been a tackling machine at App State, with 96 tackles in 2018 and 101 tackles last season.
Fromm's stats at Georgia were somewhat disappointing, especially last year, but he's acclaimed for his leadership and intangibles. He was a winner at Georgia, with 78/18 TD/INT for his career, though Fromm completed only 61 percent of his passes last year and lacks mobility. New Orleans would be as good a spot as he could hope for, developing behind Drew Brees this season in potentially his final year.
Minnesota franchised safety Anthony Harris after a career year and could be looking toward 2021. Burgess has a strong combine after a great senior season with 81 tackles for the Utes.
Bill O'Brien seems to be playing for the immediate future, and linebacker remains one of the team's 2020 needs. Gay has plenty of talent but had his college career disrupted due to NCAA violations.
There are a lot of defensive line projects in this year's draft that the Raiders should find attractive. Among them is Zuniga, who missed time with an ankle injury last year, but shows more than enough upside to be a Day 2 pick.
Moss had a forgettable combine, but the powerful runner could be a nice complement to Mark Ingram. He is a powerful runner despite lack of size 5-foot-9, and he had three straight 1,000 yard rushing seasons for the Utes.
Pass rush remains an area of need for the Titans despite signing Vic Beasley. Taylor recorded a total of 16.5 sacks over the last two seasons for the Vols and is a strong fit as a 4-3 defensive end.
Offenisve line help remains one of Green Bay's biggest needs after losing Bryan Bulaga. Niang is a huge tackle prospect at 6-foot-6 with the potential to play right away at right tackle.
Denver added Jurrell Casey in the offseason but could add further strength to its front seven. Kareem had 13 sacks in three seasons at Notre Dame, adding a career-high 46 tackles in 13 games last year.
The Chiefs are thin at defensive end after losing Emmanuel Ogbah and Terrell Suggs. Gipson had a good senior season at Tulsa with eight sacks in 12 games and shows big upside as a development prospect.
The Browns are lacking wide receiver depth behind Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry but have plenty of options in this draft. Jefferson never put up big numbers at Ole Miss or Florida and will be 24 at the start of the 2020 season, but has the potential to play immediately as a slot receiver.
The Pats never found a great tight end replacement for Rob Gronkowski last year and haven't addressed the spot this offseason. Bryant shows potential after a great junior season, with 52 catches for 825 yards.
Even if the Giants address tackle early in the draft, it's not out of the question that they will add another tackle later with a potential need on both sides. Wanogho is a perfect development prospect and has plenty of college experience.
The Patriots currently have one of the older secondaries in the league. Holmes has proved to be a playmaker in college with eight picks in three seasons but is slightly undersized at 5-foot-10.
Still relying on veterans Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright at linebacker, Seattle would be smart to add some developmental linebackers. Wilson was a tackling machine during his career at Wyoming with 409 tackles in four seasons.
Pittsburgh's offensive line ran into some uncharacteristic struggles last year and currently has little depth. Bartch is trying to make the jump from Division III. He lacks much experience on the offensive line but could be a starter soon at either tackle spot.
Philadelphia's offensive line depth was gutted this offseason. Driscoll could make the full-time move from tackle to guard at the next level and add depth on the interior immediately.
The Rams have a need at wide receiver after trading Brandin Cooks. Peoples-Jones had a frustrating college career as a former top recruit who never put up big numbers at Michigan. But he had a strong combine and could contribute as a punt returner while he develops his receiving skills.
Even after adding Michigan Pierce, the Vikings could get more interior defensive line help in the draft.. Hamilton put himself on the Day 2 radar with a big senior season at Ohio State, recording six sacks in 13 games.
Lamar Jackson has established that he loves to throw to his tight ends, and the Ravens aren't shy about putting multiple tight ends on the field in their run-heavy scheme. Trautman could struggle with the transition from Dayton, but he has interesting receiving ability.
