With the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday night, the process of evaluating prospects for the 2020 NFL Draft will start in earnest very soon.

And that means it’s time to release the first Action Network mock draft.

Freedman’s 2020 NFL Mock Draft 1.0

With the scouting combine (Feb. 24), we’ll get a lot of information that could change our perception of many players, but as of now, this mock draft represents how I imagine the first round could unfold.

This mock draft is primarily predictive but also a tad prescriptive and entirely tentative. With the combine, free agency and trades, the constellations of the draft universe will evolve over the next few months, so there will be lots of course corrections as we navigate this space.

Also, since the draft order isn’t fully set and not all of these players have even declared for the draft, I’m not going to write much in the way of analysis. That can wait till later.

And if you play dynasty fantasy football, check out my way-too-early rookie rankings.

1. Bengals: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU

The 2019 Heisman Trophy winner is a one-year wonder, but he has two starting seasons to his name, which should allay some fears about his outlier seasons, and I’m yet to see a mock draft that doesn’t have the Ohio native going No. 1 to the Bengals.

2. Redskins: Chase Young, EDGE, Ohio State
