NFL Mock Draft 2020: Dolphins take risk with Tua Tagovailoa, Eagles trade for WR

April 21 (UPI) -- Former LSU star Joe Burrow most likely will be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. How the rest of the draft unfolds remains unclear. My latest mock draft includes Ohio State stars Chase Young and Jeff Okudah coming off the board immediately after Burrow. I expect the Miami Dolphins to take the biggest risk in the first round by snatching Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa at No. 5, despite his injury history in college. My first round picks include three quarterbacks, one running back, six wide receivers, seven offensive linemen and 15 defensive players. I also expect several trades. The 2020 NFL Draft begins at 8 p.m. EDT Thursday and will air on ESPN, NFL Network and ABC. The draft ends Saturday. 2020 NFL Mock Draft 1. Cincinnati Bengals: LSU QB Joe Burrow...
