2020 NFL Draft Round 2
Mock Draft Pick: C/G Cesar Ruiz, Michigan
If you’re going to invest the No. 1 overall pick in a quarterback, you need to do everything possible to help him succeed. Giving Joe Burrow a versatile interior offensive lineman to work behind might not seem exciting, but it’s a must.
34. Indianapolis (from Washington)
Mock Draft Pick: S Xavier McKinney, Alabama
Value, value, value. McKinney has top 20 potential but should slide a bit with so many other key options on the board. It’s Indy’s first pick in the draft, and even with other concerns and needs, getting the quarterback of the secondary for the next several years would be huge.
– BetMGM McKinney Draft Position
Over 24.5 -110, Under 24.5 -110
– BetMGM Position of Indy 1st Drafted Player
Offense -159, Defense +130
– BetMGM Indianapolis Exact Position of 1st Drafted Player (if it’s McKinney) +1400
Mock Draft Pick: DE Terrell Lewis, Alabama
There’s a shot this is part of a haul of picks for Detroit if it trades out of the three. If it stays put and takes CB Jeff Okudah at the 3, it should have its shot at a decent edge rushing prospect here. The D must start hitting the quarterback.
36. NY Giants
Mock Draft Pick: S Grant Delpit, LSU
Assuming the Giants address their offensive line problems with the fourth overall pick – or somewhere in the first round if they trade down – they can go after a guy who fits what the franchise is about. Here’s your new leader of the D.

Over 34.5 +105, Under 34.5 -125

37. LA Chargers
Mock Draft Pick: RB D’Andre Swift, Georgia
Can Swift really last this long? Assuming the Chargers grab a top quarterback prospect with their first pick – either Tua Tagovailoa or Justin Herbert – expect them to keep going for the flash to upgrade the offense with a ton of young talent. Austin Ekeler is fine, but he’s not Swift or Jonathan Taylor.
– BetMGM D’Andre Swift Draft Position
Over 26.5 -189, Under 26.5 +155

1 -130, 2-7 +110
Mock Draft Pick: DT Neville Gallimore, Oklahoma
The Panthers should be able to upgrade the defense in a big way with its first two picks. If they’re lucky enough to get Clemson LB Isaiah Simmons at the 7 – and they don’t get Auburn DT Derrick Brown – they can grab a fantastic tackle here.
Mock Draft Pick: S Jeremy Chinn, Southern Illinois
Assuming Miami will go offense, offense, offense with its first three picks – and assuming it keeps them all – now is the chance to shoot for the stars. Chinn might need work, but the tools are off the charts.
40. Houston (from Arizona)
Mock Draft Pick: DE Josh Uche, Michigan
Finally, Houston gets to have some fun. After giving away its first round pick to Miami, it should be okay in the second round with a good-looking pass rusher at a solid value. At the 40, Uche would be a nice call.
– BetMGM Position of Houston 1st Drafted Player
Offense +115, Defense -139
Mock Draft Pick: WR Tee Higgins, Clemson
Can Higgins really slide this fall? The Browns should grab one of the strong offensive tackles in the first round at the 10, and then it can address their flaky receiver situation and get younger in a hurry.
– BetMGM Tee Higgins Draft Position
Over 31.5 -150, Under 31.5 +125
– BetMGM Which Round for Tee Higgins
1 +110, 2-7 -130
Mock Draft Pick: CB Jeff Gladney, TCU
The Jaguars should come out of the first 42 picks loaded. If all goes according to perfection for them, they should be able to get their rock of a DT in Derrick Brown at the 9, and then upgrade at QB with Jordan Love at the 20, they should be able to address their most glaring need a corner with Gladney – or one other other decent prospects –
– BetMGM Which Round for Jeff Gladney
1 +165, 2-7 -205
43. Chicago (from Las Vegas)
Mock Draft Pick: CB Kristian Fulton, LSU
The Bears finally get a chance to pick. It needs a whole lot of secondary help, and they should benefit from a few corners who’ll slide on down. Will Fulton really last this long? If not, then TCU’s Jeff Gladney or Auburn’s Noah Igbinoghene should be here.
– BetMGM Kristian Fulton Draft Position
Over 24.5 -132, Under 24.5 +110
– BetMGM Position of Chicago 1st Drafted Player
Offense -120, Defense +100
Mock Draft Pick: WR Denzel Mims, Baylor
Can Indianapolis really wait this long to help out its receiving corps? There’s a shot that Mims goes in the first round, and if he does, there will still be a few terrific receiver prospects still on the board here.
