Drafting players for an NFL team has never been an exact science. Coaches and personnel staffs pore over mounds of data, conduct interviews, and watch hours of film in an attempt to determine which athletes they should add to their rosters.

Despite their best efforts, some of the picks never pan out. That may happen with the 2020 NFL draft. Time will tell, but there are a few players that could potentially become draft busts.

Jalen Reagor

Fans in Philadelphia are still trying to catch their breath after hearing their team’s first-round draft pick – TCU’s Reagor. At TCU, Reagor had a 1,000-yard season as a junior in 2018, but last year his production fell way off as he caught just 43 passes for 611 yards and five touchdowns. Plus, he ran a rather average 4.47-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine.

The NFL wrapped up its annual draft with three full days, seven rounds, and 255 picks of football-lover’s paradise. And, the league did it all virtually.

With Commissioner Roger Goodell calling out picks from his basement, the NFL stuck to its schedule and held the 2020 draft during a public health crisis. In doing so, the league set a new TV ratings record for Round 1. The league was a definite winner this year. Here’s who else prospered at the 2020 NFL Draft.

The Cincinnati Bengals

With the first overall pick in the draft, the Bengals got the face of the franchise for the next decade – quarterback Joe Burrow. The Heisman Trophy winner is a likely Day 1 starter and he’ll have plenty of weapons.

The NFL’s annual draft gives teams an opportunity to meet some immediate needs as well as build a roster for the future. Plenty of teams have used the draft to their benefit. The Chiefs, for example, traded up to draft Super Bowl MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes in 2017. That one worked out for Kansas City.

For every pick that goes as planned, there are many others that do not. Some picks are puzzling and others just don’t seem to make sense. Here’s a look at those picks and the losers of the 2020 NFL draft.

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor had a rough first year. It took 13 weeks to earn his first NFL coaching victory. The season ended with a dismal 2-14 record.

That finish does afford the Bengals the opportunity to select first in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft. The question looming as the draft approaches is should Cincinnati trade the first pick in an attempt to acquire more picks and build their roster?

Yes, Trade Down

It is almost a foregone conclusion that former LSU quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow will be the first pick in the draft. With the emphasis on the quarterback position in the NFL, having a very good one is a must for teams with their eyes on the Super Bowl.
