2020 NFL Draft Second Round Prospects, Top 64 Best Players On The Board
64. WR Brandon Aiyuk, Arizona State
Bottom Line: Other than long speed, there isn’t any one part to his game that makes him special in this deep draft of receivers, but there isn’t any one glaring problem, either. He’s an ascending prospect with the phenomenal athleticism to become a dangerous deep threat.
Who Has This Pick? Seattle (from Kansas City)
63. OT Prince Tega Wanogho, Auburn
Bottom Line: Are you okay with being to wait for him to get the finer points down? He’s a phenomenal athlete with good size, but he’s still learning the game. He might not be a blaster of a run blocker, but he’ll do everything needed to make himself into a good starter.
Who Has This Pick? Kansas City (from San Francisco)
62. CB Noah Igbinoghene, Auburn
Bottom Line: If you’re looking for a corner with high-end athleticism and the upside to be a huge steal after the first round, here you go. He broke up a ton of passes, can fly, and he’ll hit, too. Best of all, he’s just scratching the surface.
Who Has This Pick? Green Bay
61. RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, LSU
Bottom Line: A gutsy-tough pinball, he’s an explosive runner who’s quick enough to fly through the hole and always come up with positive yards. He might not be all that physical, but he’ll grind out runs.
Who Has This Pick? Tennessee
60. CB Jaylon Johnson, Utah
Bottom Line: Like a coach on the field, he’s a strong tackler for his size but he’s missing the high-end NFL corner speed. He’ll fall a bit only because it’s a deep class of corners.
Who Has This Pick? Baltimore
59. DE Jonathan Greenard, Florida
Bottom Line: This might be ridiculously low on the list. If he can stay healthy – something he wasn’t able to do in college – he’s going to be among the most dangerous pass rushers in the draft. He’s tough enough to handle himself against the run, too.
Who Has This Pick? Seattle
58. DT Leki Fotu, Utah
Bottom Line: An interesting call after the first wave of defensive tackles, he’s an athletic 330-pound anchor who can occupy several blockers and occasionally collapse the pocket, too.
Who Has This Pick? Minnesota
57. OT Joshua Jones, Houston
Bottom Line: A huge call, he’s got the central casting look and skills, but is he an elite all-around blocker? He’ll be good, and he has the potential to be great in the right system, but consistency will be the key.
Who Has This Pick? Los Angeles Rams (from Houston)
56. WR Jalen Reagor, TCU
Bottom Line: Do whatever you can to get the ball in his hands and let him go. He’s a part of a puzzle in a draft full of No. 1 wide receivers, but someone will see him as a slower Tyreek Hill.
Who Has This Pick? Miami (from New Orleans)
55. DE Curtis Weaver, Boise State
Bottom Line: He’s a bit smallish at just 6-2, but he’s got the bulk to make up for it against the run. A devastating closer and playmaker behind the line, no one could figure out how to consistently stop him. The only concern is the fit – is he a big linebacker or a smallish end?
Who Has This Pick? Baltimore (from New England, from Atlanta)
54. WR Bryan Edwards, South Carolina
Bottom Line: The 6-3, 212-pounder doesn’t have the elite wheels, but he’s got everything else you’d like in a big, physical target who can beat up defensive backs. He’s just a midrange receiver, but he’s a great one.
Who Has This Pick? Buffalo
53. RB AJ Dillon, Boston College
Bottom Line: He’s got a short shelf life with almost 900 touches in college, but he’s the ultimate workhorse. He’s a 250ish pound power back and he runs a 4.5. Take him on a team full of smallish-quick backs and let him take over the offense.
Who Has This Pick? Philadelphia
52. WR Michael Pittman, USC
Bottom Line: There isn’t the flash of the other top targets in the draft, but for the flakiest of flaky positions, he’s about as safe and reliable a receiver prospect as they come. Oh yeah, and he’ll hit, too.
Who Has This Pick? Los Angeles Rams
51. DT DaVon Hamilton, Ohio State
Bottom Line: In a draft full of terrific athletes for the defensive front, here’s your big rock to sit on the inside. He’s quick enough to get in the backfield, too.
Who Has This Pick? Dallas
50. CB Jeff Gladney, TCU
Bottom Line: A flash, the quickness and explosion are what you want in an NFL corner. He’s not a big hitter, but he’ll battle hard and will get his nose dirty against the run.
Who Has This Pick? Chicago
49. LB Anfernee Jennings, Alabama
Bottom Line: It all depends on what you want to do with him. He seems like he should be a killer pass rusher, but he’s not. Expect him to be a good part of a linebacker puzzle, but without a whole lot of flash.
Who Has This Pick? Pittsburgh
48. RB Cam Akers, Florida State
Bottom Line: It’ll be fascinating to see what he can do behind a good line. He fought the good fight on a painfully inconsistent FSU offense, but he’s got as much talent as any running back in the draft. Now he gets to show it off.
Who Has This Pick? New York Jets
47. S Ashtyn Davis, Cal
Bottom Line: Ready to step in and produce in any style and any system, he’s a fantastic tackler with the right size, the right range, and the right ability to be a stat-sheet filler.
Who Has This Pick? Atlanta
46. DT Raekwon Davis, Alabama
Bottom Line: The guy brings everything in the toolbox. He’s the typical Alabama defensive tackle who looks the part, but something just wasn’t there when it came to production. There’s no real bust concern, but can he bring the boom?
Who Has This Pick? Denver
45. OT Isaiah Wilson, Georgia
Bottom Line: Is he going to live at left tackle or at guard? No matter where you put the 6-6, 350-pounder, he has the upside to become an anchor and a rock somewhere for someone’s line.
Who Has This Pick? Tampa Bay
44. OT Mekhi Becton, Louisville
Bottom Line: Are you REALLY sure he can stay at around 365 pounds? He’s a massive blocker who didn’t elevate a miserable Louisville offensive front. As long as he can keep his weight down, he’ll be good, but he’ll be overdrafted in a strong season for offensive tackles.
Who Has This Pick? Indianapolis
43. CB AJ Terrell, Clemson
Bottom Line: The guy looks and runs the part. The 6-1, 195-pounder has the frame to go along with his 4.4 speed. The concern, though, is a body type that might not be built to be as physical as he’ll want to be. He’ll get snapped up fast after the first round.
Who Has This Pick? Chicago (from Las Vegas)
42. QB Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma
Bottom Line: Take the shot. He doesn’t have the pure passing skills you might like, and he’s not enough of a ridiculous athlete to make up for it, but if you liked Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray for what they did in the Oklahoma system, then go with the guy with everything you could ever want in a leader for your team.
Who Has This Pick? Jacksonville
41. RB J.K. Dobbins, Ohio State
Bottom Line: Among the most underappreciated players in college football over the last few years, he was the reliable all-around back who helped keep the Buckeye machine going. He’s as reliable, tough, and safe as any player in the draft.
Who Has This Pick? Cleveland

40. LB Malik Harrison, Ohio State
Bottom Line: Every defensive coordinator will want this guy in the second round. He did everything for the Buckeye D over the last four years and never got the top-end billing of a Chase Young or Jeff Okudah.
Who Has This Pick? Houston (from Arizona)
39. WR Tee Higgins, Clemson
Bottom Line: A special talent who’d be the No. 1 receiver off the board in most drafts, he’s not quite as physical as you might like, but he’s got the size and frame the other top targets in this draft don’t. It’s possible this ranking is at least 20 spots too low.
Who Has This Pick? Miami
38. DT Jordan Elliott, Missouri
Bottom Line: A nice all-around talent, he’s got all the tools you want – even if he’s not all that bulky – and he’ll do all the dirty work in the interior to gum things up. If this makes any sense, you’re not necessarily going to notice him on the field – in a good way. He’ll hold his own.
Who Has This Pick? Carolina
37. WR Laviska Shenault, Colorado
Bottom Line: He’s hardly the perfect wide receiver prospect, but he’s a baller’s baller who’ll do everything from run, return kicks, and possibly grow into a No. 1 target. First, though, he has to be able stay healthy.
Who Has This Pick? Los Angeles Chargers
36. LB Josh Uche, Michigan
Bottom Line: There’s a whole lot not to like considering he doesn’t have a set position and won’t do anything in pass coverage, but he’s a good value get as a possible high-end pass rusher.
Who Has This Pick? New York Giants
35. CB Kristian Fulton, LSU
Bottom Line: Very strong, very fast, and still getting better, he’ll battle against any receiver with the versatility to potentially be used as a whale of a free safety. Find a spot for him and let him be great.
Who Has This Pick? Detroit
34. WR Justin Jefferson, LSU
Bottom Line: Throw it somewhere in his zip code and he’ll find a way to get it. He’ll be a volume-catcher in the right system and a quarterback’s best friend on third downs.
Who Has This Pick? Indianapolis (from Washington)
33. S Antoine Winfield, Minnesota
Bottom Line: No, he might not have the elite athleticism you might like, but he’s got 4.45 speed, he’s a hitter for his size, and he’s got an uncanny knack for always being around the ball to make a play.
Who Has This Pick? Cincinnati
