2020 NFL mock draft: Surprise scenarios for every top-10 pick

We’re nearly a week away from the 2020 NFL Draft, so at this point, you’ve probably seen every possible mock draft scenario already.
Well, what it a truckload of trades turns the early part of the first round upside down?
Here’s a projection that throws a little chaos into the top of this year’s draft, starting with the No. 1 overall pick. Where’s what it might look like if a handful of blockbuster moves completely change the landscape of the first round and beyond.

If there’s any team that has the ammo to put together a trade package that could entice the Bengals to move off this pick, it’s the Dolphins. They’re loaded with early round picks in this draft and the next one, giving them more than enough firepower to jump up from No. 5 overall.

Now, it’s easier said than done, but if the Bengals have the opportunity to fill multiple holes on their roster with premium picks, including a franchise quarterback at No. 5 overall, they have to listen.
Burrow is one of the best quarterback prospects I’ve ever scouted in over 20 years of evaluation, which means it wouldn’t surprise me for the Dolphins to make a bold move up the board to secure him. It would surprise me for the Bengals to give up the chance to draft him, but if the price is right, it could happen.
