By: Fernando Jeronimo / Dave Heilman / Keith Sheeran / Andrew Felton

The 1st round results are in /

The 2020 NFL season is now in the rear-view mirror after the Tom Brady led Tampa Bay Buccaneers took down the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV. Now, it’s time to turn our attention to the upcoming rookie draft. This year’s class is full of talent, especially at the wide receiver position, so it will be interesting to see where a lot of these guys end up on draft night.

With the help of the Pro Football Network simulator, I put together my round 1 mock draft. Let’s take a look at where I think the big names in this year’s draft will end up.
