2020 First Quarter Mock Draft

Clayton Smarslok with his first quarter of the NFL season 2020 mock draft…

Alas! Mock draft season is upon us! Sure, some may say it is a waste to do a mock draft this early because of everything that can change but people who say that hate fun. This is supposed to be fun for me and you, but also informative for us all to know who is out there and who could be added to your favorite team as the next building block in their hopeful run at a Super Bowl.

As mentioned above, things will change. So do not take this mock draft in early October and rub it in my face when something (or everything) is completely off by the time late April comes around. 

Disclaimer: The draft order is based off the order given on Tankathon.com, using the current record and strength of schedule of every team.
