The 2020 NFL Draft is months away, but with the 2019 NFL season already entering Week 4, we are starting to see some glaring needs around the league.
Week 4 of the 2019 NFL season is officially in the books, after the Chicago Bears beat the Washington Redskins on Monday night football. With the loss, the Redskins move to 0-3 on the young season, and you have to believe that head coach Jay Gruden is officially back on the hot seat.
Here is our latest 2020 NFL mock draft.
Quarterback, Miami Dolphins
The Miami Dolphins actually played tough early on this past week, as they took on the Dallas Cowboys on the road, but still came away with their third straight loss. Miami made the decision to roll with quarterback Josh Rosen in this one, and while he is young, he is not the future for the Dolphins.
Over the first few weeks of the season, the Dolphins have made it clear that they are tanking, and they currently have the No. 1 overall selection in our latest 2020 NFL mock draft. With that pick, Miami is likely going to grab their franchise quarterback, and Tua Tagovailoa from Alabama is going to be an absolute star in this league.
Tua is not only an incredibly accurate quarterback, but he has an absolute cannon for a left arm, and should develop into the best quarterback this franchise has had since Dan Marino. The Dolphins have a long way to go until they are competitive, but holding five first round picks over the next two drafts certainly helps.
Offensive Tackle, New York Jets
The New York Jets have had a strange start to the season, losing three straight games before heading into a very early bye week in Week 4. The organization has suffered through some terrible issues already in 2019, including their franchise quarterback getting mono, and being out an extended period of time.
When you look at this roster, they need a lot of help, but it all starts up front along the offensive line. This Jets offensive line is downright terrible, and when it comes time for them to draft early in the 2020 NFL Draft, they should look to add a franchise left tackle to protect their franchise quarterback.
Andrew Thomas is the best offensive line prospect in this draft class, and he will likely be the first off the board next April. The Jets have a lot of holes, but left tackle is so important, especially with such a young quarterback, and a running back in Le’veon Bell who they are paying so much money for moving forward.
