Mel Kiper Jr. names SEC-heavy top 10 prospects for 2020 NFL Draft
As the 2019 NFL Draft wrapped up in Nashville, ESPN expert Mel Kiper Jr. revealed his top 10 prospects for the 2020 draft. Surprise, surprise it’s an SEC-heavy list.
Kiper has Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa at No. 1 with teammate WR Jerry Jeudy right behind him at No. 2. Auburn DT Derrick Brown checks in at No. 5 with LSU S Grant Delpit closely following at No. 6. Georgia teammates OT Andrew Thomas and QB Jake Fromm round out Kiper’s top 10.
SDS senior columnist Connor O’Gara predicts a Tagovailoa vs. Fromm debate will dominate the next few months of NFL Draft conversation. Perhaps we’ll see the two go head-to-head again this year. Kiper notably has Oregon QB Justin Herbert in between the two SEC signal-callers at No. 3. In the world of the NFL Draft, however, a lot can change in 12 months. As we just saw, a lot can even change in one month.
Here’s the full Kiper top 10, which was featured on the ESPN broadcast:
