NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah is projecting five LSU Tigers to go in the first round of his 2020 NFL Mock Draft 1.0.

The 2020 NFL Draft will take place on April 23–25 in Las Vegas.
quote:

Pick 1: Joe Burrow - QB
Burrow doesn't have elite arm strength, but he checks every other box, and he's a beautiful fit in the Bengals' offense.

Pick 11: K'Lavon Chaisson - Edge
General manager Joe Douglas is desperate to upgrade the OL, but in this scenario, the run at the position has already taken place. Chaisson is an outstanding athlete and would fit smoothly into the Jets' scheme.

Pick 19: Patrick Queen - LB
The Raiders need to get faster and more dynamic on defense. Queen plays sideline to sideline, and he's outstanding in coverage.

Pick 23: Grant Delpit - S
The Patriots could look at an offensive lineman here (see: Michigan center Cesar Ruiz), but they need to add some youth and athleticism at the safety position, as well.

Pick 24: Justin Jefferson - WR
Jefferson is very precise as a route runner, and I love his toughness. He'll fit perfectly next to Michael Thomas.
Missing from Jeremiah's first-round mock draft was LSU cornerback Kristian Fulton who could likely be selected on Day 1 of the event.

Joe - obvious #1 Chaisson/Queen/Jefferson - all ~15ish picks too high, this is recency bias/natty hype Delpit - no chance he lasts til #23... this is also (negative) recency bias

I will be very surprised if Patrick Queen goes in the first round. Hope he does, but it would surprise me.

Just another indicator of how impressive the LSU team was this year. 5 projected first rounders, with legitimate debates for another 3 or 4 to enter the conversation.

Fulton has a better shot at round 1 than Queen and Jefferson
Reply9 months
RIGHT? I never wouldve thought queen would go first round this year.

Teams are always looking for sideline to sideline LB's that can cover and Queen is just that. The dude is going to destroy the individual drills in the combine. He has proven himself over the last few games. He just contained one of the best runningbacks in college and wouldnt give Etienne any room to roam

Fulton will have to battle his past character issues. It's not as big as it would be if his problems were more recent. But still affects it.

He never had character issues. He had a bull shite initial eligibility issue with the S/REC. The fact that he persisted and stayed the course through all of that says more about his character than you can grasp.

If Saints can grab Chaisson, Delpit, or Fulton you do it. We couldn’t get edge pressure on QB’s or cover. Lattimore has regressed...I doubt Delpit is there at #24 and I love JJ but Saints need to upgrade that D.

Jefferson would be a great fit with the Saints and he’s already had a head start learning the offense.
Reply9 months
He would, but they won't. They'll reach for a lesser player to avoid picking a Tiger.

I’d be surprised if we have more than 4 players go in the first round.

Look for more LSU players to move up in the draft. Freak athletes who will impress at the combine and at LSU’s pro day. Scouts eat that stuff up!!!

But Sean hates LSU players...

Think about it..... for a team that “had serious defensive issues” according to some fans.... has 3 first round picks vs 2 from the greatest offensive team ever. Really says a lot. In other words... did this season have to end?!?
Reply9 months
So the Clemson guy we torched gets picked over Fulton? Not a chance in hell

I hate all the emphasis they put on "arm strength" in evaluations. Overrated trait if you ask me.
Reply9 months
"Arm strength" was the defining characteristic of both Ryan Leaf and Jamarcus Russell.

1. fulton will be the second cb off the board. 2. queen is what nfl defenses are looking for and having a hard time finding. fast 3 down lbers.

Queen at 15? Seems like a stretch.
Reply9 months
I have no doubts he will blow the combine away but he definetly had ups and downs during the season. Needs to learn to wrap up.

Jefferson next to michael thomas would be sweet
Reply9 months
Idk about queen in the first round
Reply9 months
Just saying. He made up A LOT of ground over the last 5 games and will destroy the combine/individual workouts. All about team needs as the back end of 1st rd unfolds.

Grant Delpit will not go 1st round

Bet

You're an idiot if you really believe this. He didn't have as good a year as 2018, but he's a 1st round lock.

Hey, if u want to make a bet over it, ill give you 10 to 1 odds,we can do 100bucks. So if u win, then you get a g,and if I win, I get 100 bucks. I believe there's a website that you can put the money into and it holds it till our bet goes through. If that doesn't exist, and I heard wrong, I just found a million dollar idea. Email me at bevhall1950@gmail.com. I'm not a woman named bev, email is an old joint account
