2020 NFL Mock Draft: What happens if the Tennessee Titans don’t take a QB
By Will Lomas
11. L.A. Chargers: Tua Tagovailoa QB, Alabama
-I know everyone is overreacting to an injury that we really know nothing about, but in a few months we are going to see Tua work out again and look good. At that point, I fully expect to hear him as a “riser” or that teams are no longer concerned about the hip injury.
With that said, his injury history as a whole is troublesome with three injuries in less than 12 months. I think teams that would have to start him immediately behind a bad OL or in less than ideal surroundings will be wary.
The Chargers have Hunter Henry, Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler which should make Tua’s life easier and they can spend money and picks on rebuilding that offensive line this offseason to continue to support him.
12. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jacob Eason QB, Washington
-How do the Tampa Bay Buccaneers replace a mistake prone QB who isn’t afraid to let it rip? With a strong-armed, mistake prone QB who isn’t afraid to let it rip.
Eason is a perfect QB for Bruce Arians and frankly with what is left on the board and their current needs, this is the only option that doesn’t seem them tank in 2020.
13. Philadelphia Eagles: Kristian Fulton CB, LSU
-The Eagles need to come away with a cornerback, running back or maybe a wide receiver and in this draft they end up getting a big cornerback who seems like he is built to shine more at the next level than he did in college.
That is always a risky way of thinking, but Fulton’s size and experience are intriguing enough that he could end up in the top-16 with a good bowl season and predraft process.
14. Oakland Raiders (via Chicago Bears): Henry Ruggs III WR, Alabama
-H/W/S guys always end up in Oakland. Ok, maybe not under Mike Mayock but what do they like: guys from winning programs. Ruggs has elite speed and is perfect for an offense that wants to get the ball out quickly and efficiently because of what he can do after the catch and his career with the Crimson Tide should make him very intriguing for Oakland.
