The 2020 NFL Draft’s Key Picks & Predictions

This year’s NFL Draft was one for the ages, as it was televised virtually throughout households across the country. 

Lead my NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, the draft went by without any noticeable technical difficulties. Each draft selection from pick number one, to pick 255 went by in such a successful manner that you wouldn’t even realize this was the NFL’s first virtual draft.

This year’s first draft pick honors went to the Cincinnati Bengals, and they wasted no time selecting quarterback Joe Burrow out of LSU. Burrow’s was believed to be a no brainer pick for the Bengals as he was this past season Heisman Trophy winner.

At the number six pick, the Los Angeles Chargers selected quarterback Justin Herbert from the University of Oregon. The Chargers are taking a huge risk by drafting Herbert who was seen as the third-best quarterback in the draft up until Alabama’s quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was injured during the season.

The Los Angeles Rams didn’t get to make their first selection until the 52nd pick of the second round. They selected running-back Cam Akers from Florida State University. The pick is likely to try to fill the void left by Todd Gurley who departed for the Atlanta Falcons.

Other surprises that took place in the draft included the New York Giants taking offensive lineman Andrew Thomas with the 4th overall pick; Detroit Lions selecting cornerback Jeff Okudah with the 3rd pick in the draft.


Now that the NFL Draft has come to an end the season will be a true determiner of who were the true draft winners and losers.
