Clint Clearwater’s 2020 NFL Draft Big Board

Well guys, here is my first top 100 big board on the year. It was actually a lot more of a challenge than what I was expecting. Just so you guys know, I feel pretty good about my top 20 really, then we get into guys I am pretty sure about, lets say 20 - 70, then from 70 - 100, I still have a lot of film work to do on. It was tough trying to get players where I felt they belonged, and I am pretty sure I have more than 32 first round grades in this class so I believe there will be some terrific value picks in the 2nd round.

So, lets do a quick preview - not much of a change at the top of my list. Burrow, Young and Tua are the crown jewels.... again, if I’m the Dolphins, I am making sure getting one of them is priority number 1. I think Brown, Okudah, Simmons, Lamb, Jeudy, are all potential all pros and immediate starters. Then I get into the OTs - Becton is a newcomer to my big board because, frankly last time I did a big board I hadn’t studied him yet - spoiler, he’s a monster. I love Andrew Thomas resume, I think he starts day 1. Then, not too much further down my list, Willis and Wirfs are also ready to start in the NFL. Patrick Queen makes a big jump, his tape is fun. I think Epenesa and Gross-Matos are Dolphin targets, as well as Josh Jones, OT, Houston. I have first round grades on Swift and Dobbins, both rated pretty much the same, just pick what flavor you want. Kyle Dugger is a newcomer, watched some film on him after the Senior Bowl, he’s impressive. Cushenberry is my new #1 center - he’s a strong, long reach, gifted center that protected Burrow all season. His teammate Damien Lewis is also new, (#61). I think he’s a tough and consistent guard. Towards the beginning of the second round, I have a lot of CBs, and really I have similar grades on most. A lot of different guys, pretty much pick which one fits your system the best. I was super impressed with Denzel Mims and Van Jefferson, both I think are solid 2nd round guys. Josh Uche has been blowing my mind, his tape is super good. I’m thinking once I get through more of his tape he will probably be rated higher on this list. Once we start creeping into my 3rd round grades then it gets a little murky. I still have a lot of film to go through on these guys so just keep that in mind. Anyways, check out the list and thanks for reading!
