Clint Clearwater’s 2020 NFL Mock Draft

We are coming up on the 2020 NFL Combine (starting on the 27th) so I thought it would be fun to do my second edition at a mock draft for the 2020 NFL Draft. In this edition, I have the Dolphins trading up to number #2. In this fun, completely fictitious mock, I have the Dolphins trading the #5, #26 and probably some picks in next year’s draft to move up to number 2 overall. I figured, that would guarantee either Joe Burrow or Tua Tagovailoa to be a Dolphin on opening night. My opinion has been clear, I am sick of being 7-9 every year. I think Joe and Tua are special. Do what needs to be done. So, please enjoy the rest of this mock and thanks for reading.

1. Cincinnati – Joe Burrow, QB, LSU

2. Trade: Miami (from Washington) – Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama

The Dolphins make the night’s first big trade and select Tua Tagovailoa despite the medical concerns. Guys, I am not a doctor but if he’s cleared medically, Tua will be a top 3 pick. If the Dolphins believe he’s special they need to do whatever it takes to select him.

The mini-run on DEs continues here. DE is a huge need for the Dolphins and Gross-Matos is becoming one of my favorite prospects in this draft. I think this is a terrific pick here and a player that will immediately help the Dolphins.
