The NFL season is still very young, but it has become very clear which teams will be drafting near the top of the order when the 2020 NFL Draft takes place on April 23 in Paradise, Nev.
The Dolphins, Bengals, Giants, Jets, and Redskins should all be preparing to have a top 10 draft pick come the 2020 NFL Draft, and with the way the early 2019 NFL regular season is playing out, these teams will need a lot of help.
That's why the Dolphins have decided to punt on the 2019 season focus on the NFL Draft, trading away a litany of their top players to acquire 2020 draft picks, and lots of them.
The Dolphins will get three first-round draft picks in 2020 thanks to trades with the Texans and Steelers. Miami will want to invest in a franchise quarterback, but in the modern NFL, you need targets for that franchise QB and you need stars to stop the other team's targets.
While the Dolphins, Bengals, Giants, Jets, and Redskins won't all draft wide receivers or defensive backs, the early NFL season has made it obvious that these teams desperately need help in the pass game, and defending the pass.
Who are the top WR prospects and DB prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft? Glad you asked.
Top WR Prospects in 2020 NFL Draft:
1. Jerry Jeudy, Alabama. Simply put, one of the most talented, explosive WR prospects of the last decade.
2. Tee Higgins, Clemson. Elite ball-catcher with 6-4 frame, but still needs to add muscle and explosiveness.
3. CeeDee Lamb, Oklahoma. Great route-runner and gifted competitor. One of the most fun WRs to watch play every Saturday.
4. Laviska Shenault, Colorado. An exceptional athlete who always makes big plays. Needs work on technical route-running.
5. Henry Ruggs III, Alabama. The fastest WR in the class is a deep threat every time he lines up.
Top CB prospects in 2020 NFL Draft:
1. Jeffery Okudah, Ohio State. Understands leverage and uses his size to his advantage to be a complete all-around corner.
2. Trevon Diggs, Alabama. Great ability in man coverage and shows great ball skills, as evident in his Week 1 INT VS Duke.
3. Kristian Fulton, LSU. Big physical, explosive CB who is next among great LSU DBs.
4. Bryce Hall, Virginia. Hall is always around the ball evident in his nation-leading 22 pass breakups in 2018.
5. C.J. Henderson, Florida. 6-1 instinctual CB with fluid hips that can turn and run with anyone.
