This edition is a quick recap of the 2020 NFL Draft, where the crew goes over and provides their own take on some of the most important picks of the first round. The draft was held virtually due to the coronavirus, yet it still resulted in shocks and excitement for fans of every one of the NFL’s 32 teams. Jock of All Trades focuses on the surprise selections and game-changers who were drafted, recognizing their previous collegiate accolades and predicting their futures in the league.
As expected, the Cincinnati Bengals selected LSU’s star quarterback Joe Burrow first overall. Then, the Washington Redskins drafted defensive end Chase Young from Ohio State University, the best defensive prospect in the draft. Next, cornerback Jeff Okudah, also from OSU, was selected by the Detroit Lions, supplying them with an agile defensive starter. The Miami Dolphins and Los Angeles Chargers drafted quarterbacks Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert at the fifth and sixth picks respectively, filling their voids at quarterback.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected offensive lineman Tristan Wirfs 13th overall to bolster their powerful offense. For the 14th pick, the San Francisco 49ers found a strong defensive lineman in Javon Kinlaw to support their already proven defense. The Denver Broncos snagged Jerry Jeudy at the 15th pick, giving a new target to their young quarterback. The final pick discussed was the 26th, where Green Bay Packers selected quarterback Jordan Love in a surprising move.
