2020 NFL Mock Draft: 2-round projection
By Geoff Shull
NFL mock draft, picks 18 through 22
18. Miami Dolphins: Andrew Thomas, OT
What a dream this would be for Miami. Thomas is one of the most sound all around players in this draft. His true bread and butter would be playing the run given his excellent power and leverage. He has a high football IQ and projects to be a left tackle in the NFL. Given Miami’s need after trading away Leremy Tunsil, the team couldn’t be more happy with this selection.
19. Las Vegas Raiders: Kristian Fulton, CB
Fulton is one of the best pure man coverage prospects in this draft. Over the past two seasons, he has amassed 21 passes defensed and 2 interceptions. He has a very natural feel for the game and how to challenge wide receivers on a play to play basis. He has cornerback 1 written all over him. Jon Gruden would be wise to look to tap into this immensely talented prospect.
20. Jacksonville Jaguars: C.J. Henderson, CB
Its time for the post Ramsey Jaguars to find its next great corner. Henderson brings excellent physicality, ball skills and route recognition to the game. He has the physical tools to be a shutdown corner, he will simply need time to fully develop.
21. Philadelphia Eagles: Jalen Reagor, WR
If last year was any indication, it is time for the Eagles to invest heavily on some young receiving prospects. Jalen Reagor is likely one of the fastest players in this draft. He played through this past year with one of the worst quarterback situations in the NCAA. Still, he amassed 43 catches, 611 yards and 5 touchdowns despite only having 30% of the passes his direction being considered accurate. Reagor’s skills set is a match made in heaven for Doug Peterson, he should help open the playbook for some creative play calling next season.
22. Buffalo Bills: Brandon Aiyuk, WR
The Bills need to continue giving Josh Allen weapons to try and maximize his potential. With Cole Beasley manning the slot, John Brown needs a running mate stretching the field. Aiyuk is one of the fastest players left on the draft board. He is one of the best RAC receivers in this draft, who plays with exceptional open field awareness. With his speed and Josh Allen’s arms, this could be a perfect pairing.
