Most years I only do one Mock Draft per season and it is the week of the NFL draft that takes place in late-April. This year is different though as I am under quarantine at this point in time and stuck at home and working from home due to the craziness that is taking place in the world. So, it looks like I will be doing more than one mock draft this year in the lead up to the draft.

With this first mock draft I am doing I have projected/predicted some trades I think that may take place. Granted free agency is only a week old so there are still numerous quality free agents on the market at this moment in time, so this mock will change some in the coming weeks as we get closer to the NFL draft, but as of today here is my first mock draft of 2020.

Being a Miami Dolphins website this first mock draft I did is very Miami Dolphins heavy. I have Miami making three trades in round 1 and making four total picks in Round 1.

2. WashingtonChase Young- Edge-Ohio St

3. Miami (TRADE: Miami gets Pick #3 and Lions Get #5 and #26)—Chargers hold a higher 2nd round pick than Miami, so Fins MUST overpay a bitTua Tagovaoila-QB-Alabama

5. Detroit Lions (from earlier Miami trade)- Isaiah Simmons-LB-Clemson

6. LA ChargersJustin Herbert-QB-Oregon

You may be thinking Miami is giving up too many picks with these trades, they would in this 2020 draft own picks 3, 18, 25, 32, 70, 141, 173, 185, 227, 251. 10 picks total and they still have a 2021 1st round pick and two 2nd round picks. 10 picks total this year and they fill most of their voids on offense and have four players they control for five years on rookie deals.
