It's officially mock draft season! That final whistle you heard ending an entertaining Super Bowl LIV means all 32 teams are now looking forward to the 2020 campaign.
Here's my first look at some of the player-team fits that would make sense on the first two days of the draft. Constructing a three-round mock draft before the NFL Scouting Combine (Feb. 27 to March 1 on NFL Network) is akin to playing the role of the game show contestant who hits the buzzer before the host has finished reading the question. You can look smart for anticipating the results -- or not.
Based on career production and performance in the postseason all-star game circuit, these players have made the argument they deserve to be selected early on draft weekend.
NOTE: The third-round compensatory selections in this mock (Picks 97-104) are based on my projections. The NFL usually awards comp picks in late February.
