*This is not how I think the 2020 draft should go, but rather how I predict it will go at this point in the year*
As we near the midway point of the 2019 College Football Season, it is a perfect time to begin mocking this highly touted 2020 Rookie Class. It has the potential to be a great class and has dynasty owners everywhere drooling over those 2020 first and second-round picks. This is my prediction of how I see the first round in 2020 playing out in Superflex Rookie Drafts.
1.01 – D’Andre Swift, RB Georgia
No surprises here, even with it being a Superflex mock. Georgia’s running back D’Andre Swift is next in line to be drafted in the first round of rookie drafts and the actual NFL Draft from Running Back University. Swift is the consensus top player in all devy ranks right now. Swift is an electric back. He has one of the best cuts in all of college football, which makes him a nightmare in space. He has some of the best acceleration in this class which lets him burst out of cuts for huge gains. What makes D’Andre Swift such a complete back is his pass-catching ability. Whether it is from the backfield or lined up in the slot, he is a matchup nightmare for linebackers trying to cover him in the passing game. Swift has very few red flags, hasn’t been ridden heavily in college and will enter the NFL with fewer touches than the majority of his 2020 classmates. Swift will need to improve on his pass protection, but he should step into a heavy workload when he enters the NFL and make an immediate impact on dynasty rosters.
1.02 – Tua Tagovailoa, QB Alabama
