NFL 2020 RE-DRAFT TOP 5 Picks


Johnny Mambrino, Editor

  1. Bengals – Joe Burrow, QB

The Bengals made the right pick with Joe Burrow. Even though the team’s record doesn’t show it he has put together great games as a rookie and is really coming into his own as he has gained more confidence as the season has gone on. He’s got the weapons he needs to produce at a high level, with Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins, and Joe Mixon. It’s just a matter of can the Bengals o-line protect him.

      2. Football Team – Justin Herbert, QB

It’s not that Chase Young hasn’t played well, but Dwayne Haskins hasn’t necessarily played up to par, and replacing him with Kyle Allen isn’t the long term answer. There were questions about Herbert’s accuracy problems coming out of Oregon, but he has been in my mind the Rookie of the Year. He has had multiple multi-touchdown games this season and has looked like a seasoned pro in the pocket, even with subpar pass protection and his star running back, Austin Ekeler out. With Washington’s much-improved defense, Herbert would’ve had the offense rolling and in a very weak NFC East this year, it could’ve been theirs to win.

      3. Lions – Jeff Okudah, CB

Okudah has struggled a bit, as most rookie cornerbacks do, but he had shown flashes of what people expected him to be.: a ball-hawking physical defender who doesn’t give up on plays. He has had to play some of the best receivers in the league and as he gains that experience and as the Lions defense gets better around him, he’ll break out in no time.

4. Giants – Mecki Becton, OT

The Giants had a clear need at offensive tackle and they addressed it, but Andrew Thomas has been statistically one of the worst offensive linemen in the league. Even the third-round pick Matt Peart has been more productive than him. The Giants still very much need to protect Daniel Jones, and the best tackle out of 4 taken in the top 15, has been the Jets selection Mecki Becton is an absolute mauler in the run game and has been better than expected in the passing game. At least one New York team got it right.

5. Dolphins – Tua Tagovailoa, QB

Tanking for Tua most definitely paid off for the Dolphins as in just 2 starts he’s looked like a legitimate franchise quarterback. Many questioned the ‘Fins decision to put him in the starting role as Ryan Fitzpatrick had led them to a 3-3 record, putting them in second place in the AFC East. Tua proved the doubters wrong as he won his very first start against the stout Rams defense, and put on show the week after against the Cardinals with almost 250 yards passing and 2 touchdowns. The Dolphins are now 5-3 and the future looks bright in Miami.
