Three-Round 2020 NFL Mock Draft: Carolina Gambles on Love

The deadline to declare for the 2020 NFL Draft is quickly approaching. Underclassmen have until Jan. 20th to enter the draft. Big names such as Dylan Moses, Marvin Wilson, and Alex Leatherwood have decided to return to college next year, but Tua Tagovailoa and many others are still undecided on their future. In this mock, I have the Tua going to the Dolphins at number 5 overall.
