Yesterday I posted part one of my 2.0 mock draft. Today we have part two. After projecting six hypothetical trades in round one, there are five more hypothetical trades in round two. As I mentioned yesterday, everyone loves a mock draft, so while we wait for the combine and then free agency to happen, enjoy the rest of my 2.0 mock draft. Without further ado, the Cincinnati Bengals are back on the clock.
The 2019 NFL season came and went in what feels like in a New York minute. However, the offseason is just getting started. Teams are beginning to cut veterans to open up cap space and the NFL Combine is almost here. Everyone loves a mock draft, so while we wait for the combine and then free agency to happen, enjoy my 2.0 mock draft. Today I will be sharing part one (the first round), which has six hypothetical trades in it. Part two (the second round) will be out tomorrow morning, so without further ado, the Cincinnati Bengals are on the clock.
The Buffalo Bills made a nice run during the 2019 season, finishing 10-6 and making the wildcard game. Unfortunately, they blew a lead to the Texans, so they are still winless in the playoffs in recent history. The culture is meshing well in Buffalo right now. The coaching staff has it figured out and this group of guys resembles a true team. They have a tough 2020 schedule, so they will need to add some talent, especially on offense, in order to compete next season.
The Washington Redskins’ 2019 season didn’t go as anyone had planned. Between the merry-go-round at quarterback, the injuries, and the coaching/front office dumpster fire, it’s amazing the Redskins didn’t finish with the worse record in the NFL. However, the reward for the horrible season is the number two overall draft pick. Thanks to a draft night trade last season, the Redskins don’t have a second-round pick (34th overall), as it now belongs to the Indianapolis Colts. However, thanks to losing Jamison Crowder in free agency last year, the Redskins are projected to receive a fourth-round compensatory pick. In total, the Redskins are projected to have seven draft picks this year.
The Green Bay Packers were dismantled in the NFC Championship game, meaning all four of the NFC North teams have now been eliminated this year. Last April, this division had four first-round picks, with Green Bay having two of those four. The Chicago Bears were without first and second-round picks due to the Khalil Mack trade. The Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings had plenty of picks throughout the draft and didn’t do much moving around. Let’s take a look at how all four teams did last April with their selections.

Binjimen Victor put up his most productive season in 2019 (34 REC, 545 YDS, 6 TDs) after waiting in the wings behind other NFL-caliber receivers on the Buckeyes. He has a great ability to extend plays and give his quarterback a chance at making a play. Let’s break down his overall game.
We are almost done with the NFL season. In three weeks we will know which team is at the top of the mountain in the league. Last April, all 32 teams looked to address some of their weaknesses during the draft. The draft is the offseason Super Bowl as all seven rounds are televised live with in-depth analysis of each player and what they bring to their new teams.
Today, I take a look at how the NFC East did with their draft selections. The NFC East had six selections in the first round with the Giants having three, Washington having two, and Philadelphia having one. Two teams took their quarterbacks of the future, while another took their new franchise tackle. Let’s take a look at how the Cowboys, Giants, Eagles, and Redskins rookies did this year.
