NFL 2020 Mock Draft: Jets and Giants Add Offensive Weapons


Pierce Munsey, Staff Writer

It’s draft season in the NFL. While we do not know how long the COVID-19 outbreak will affect sports such as hockey, basketball, and baseball, we do know that the NFL Draft will take place as scheduled. Therefore, with every other major sport on pause, I decided to create an NFL Mock, Draft, which is the most exciting off-season event of any sport. Although many of the features that make the draft a spectacle will not be taking place, there is still much anticipation toward the first day of the draft—April 23rd. This is my first mock draft, and it may change drastically depending on what happens between now and the draft. I don’t think ANYBODY thought the Texans would trade DeAndre Hopkins, and yet they did so in one of the worst NFL (and possibly even sports) trades in recent memory. So, inevitably, there will be a transaction that affects my mock. However, I will not be making mock trades.
