The 2020 NFL season is just days away, which means that even a pandemic can’t slow the unstoppable: mock drafts are back. The first-overall pick is — no surprise — Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, and one that we don’t see changing over the next seven months. (A year ago, Chase Young and Tua Tagovailoa were battling for the No. 1 status until Joe Burrow got everyone’s attention by early November.)

All told, four quarterbacks are selected as the Jaguars, Panthers, Bears and Patriots look for their next face of the franchise. And like last year’s class, this group is deep at wide receiver, with five going in Round 1, starting with LSU’s Ja’Marr Chase.

Before we get to all 32 picks, and before you get angry, know that the draft order below was determined using SportsLine’s reverse Super Bowl odds.

OK, let’s go.
