The 2020 NFL Scouting Combine is quickly approaching, so we turned to NFL.com analyst and former NFL general manager Charley Casserly to give us some insight on this year's prospects. Who should your team be studying at the event? Casserly identifies one player for each franchise to keep close tabs on in Indianapolis.
NOTE: Click on each prospect's name for a full scouting report.
CINCINNATI BENGALS: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU. It's lining up for Burrow to be the building block of the franchise. We already know what he can do on the field. The interview and profile testing are what Cincy should be most interested in.
CLEVELAND BROWNS: Jedrick Wills, OT, Alabama. The Browns need to shore up the O-line and Wills would certainly help. NFL.com draft analyst Lance Zierlein lists Wills' pro comp as Jason Peters, which gives him exciting upside, but the Browns need him to play A LOT. That's the question Cleveland needs answered.
PITTSBURGH STEELERS: K.J. Hamler, WR, Penn State. The Steelers need a speed receiver to alleviate some of the attention on JuJu Smith-Schuster. Hamler is the guy, as a dynamic speedster who could excel in the slot. He's expected to register a sub-4.4 40-yard dash in Indy, which could boost his stock.
HOUSTON TEXANS: Jaylon Johnson, CB, Utah. Houston has a major need at cornerback and Johnson could fix some of the issues. The Utah product is best as a press corner at this point in his career.
INDIANAPOLIS COLTS: CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma. If the Colts can solve their quarterback question in free agency, they could quickly have an explosive offense by adding a top-tier receiver from this draft class. They need a wideout to pair with T.Y. Hilton. Lamb's playmaking ability could fit the bill and be available when they draft at 13th overall.
DENVER BRONCOS: Henry Ruggs III, WR, Alabama. After trading Emmanuel Sanders away, the Broncos must find a complement to an on-the-rise Courtland Sutton. With this deep receiver class, they should have several options. Ruggs would add another playmaker to the offense and his elite speed could help Drew Lock stretch the field.
LAS VEGAS RAIDERS: Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama. The Raiders have lacked a No. 1 receiver since trading Amari Cooper away in the middle of the 2018 season. (Remember the Antonio Brown fiasco?) Jeudy is the top player at his position and would fit in well with Tyrell Williams, Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller.
WASHINGTON REDSKINS: Chase Young, DE, Ohio State. Young is the best player in the draft. Period. He would be a perfect fit in Ron Rivera and Jack Del Rio's 4-3 defense.
GREEN BAY PACKERS: Raekwon Davis, DT, Alabama. The run defense needs a lot of help and Davis boasts elite physical traits that could dominate in the interior.
MINNESOTA VIKINGS: Austin Jackson, OT, USC. The offensive line must improve this offseason, specifically at tackle. Jackson is a top-five O-line prospect and could give the unit a boost.
ATLANTA FALCONS: A.J. Epenesa, DE, Iowa. The Falcons need to bring in some defensive help. They are really going to need to study defensive ends in Indy to ensure they get a solid pass rusher in the first round, especially with Vic Beasley hitting the market this offseason. Epenesa could be the biggest new threat on the D-line.
TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS: Tristan Wirfs, OT, Iowa. The Bucs have several holes, but the offensive line is the one they must focus on in the draft. Wirfs provides versatility along the line; he could play right tackle or guard at the next level.
SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS: Damon Arnette, CB, Ohio State. Their pass rush covers up a lot of weaknesses in the secondary. Arnette can play inside or outside and would immediately improve the back end of Robert Saleh's defense.
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS: Yetur Gross-Matos, DE, Penn State.Jadeveon Clowney is a free agent and the Ziggy Ansah experiment did not work. The success of Seattle's defense starts with having a good pass rush. The athletic Gross-Matos is a playmaker, as evidenced by his 17.5 sacks and 35 tackles for loss as a two-year starter at Penn State.
