2020 NFL Draft: Top 5 at Every Position

Draft Day Looming

The NFL Draft will be conducted remotely due to the COVID-19 crisis but football fans are counting the moments until the action begins on April 23rd through the 25th. The biggest catch in this year’s draft is LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, the 2019 Heisman Trophy Award winner and leader of the National Champion LSU Tigers. There is little doubt that the Cincinnati Bengals will select him with the first overall pick, moving away from their incumbent quarterback Andy Dalton for the first time since 2011 when The Red Rifle took the reins of the Cincinnati offense.
