Eagles choose CJ CJ Henderson of Florida in FPS 2020 NFL Draft

The Philadelphia Eagles finished a well-deserved week off as the team sat 5-4 and the New England Patriots visited Linc in Week 11.

With the San Francisco 49ers, the New Orleans Saints, the Minnesota Vikings, the Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers playing so well, the NFC East will probably only have one team, Philadelphia or Dallas, representing the division in the playoffs.

The days of the Steelers WR Donte Moncrief could be numbered

The clock is ticking for the Pittsburgh Steelers and wide receiver Donte Moncrief. The Steelers signed Moncrief during the off season to reinforce the wide receiver depth chart and give Pittsburgh a real veteran presence on the offensive.

Unfortunately, none of these things happened and Moncrief as a player was a flop. Moncrief only appeared in four games and has only four receptions. He has almost as many drops as he has captured so far.

But why is time pressing for Moncrief this season? Because a third round pick in 2020 is in play. There is a formula that the NFL uses to award compensatory draft picks based on lost and signed players. The Steelers had their third-round pick all blocked, but when the Philadelphia Eagles released linebacker L.J. Fort, the formula was dropped and there is now no question whether Pittsburgh will still be rewarded.

However, if the Steelers publish Moncrief before the 10th week, the formula will be readjusted and Pittsburgh will have his third round pick. This is especially important because the Steelers currently have no first or third round pick. So being able to recover one of these would be ideal.

Jags arrives for Jalen Ramsey in Draft Wire project

The Jacksonville Jaguars have undoubtedly taken the most decisive step in franchise history last week by exchanging cornerback Jalen Ramsey against a top-ranked player in 2020-2021 and a fourth in 2021. ' is a movement in which fans are divided, but one thing we can agree on is that the faux-projects for the upcoming season become much more interesting.

Draft Wire comrade Luke Easterling recently came up with a new model with an upset order and the Jags got a very interesting result:

After arguably exchanging the league's best corner in Jalen Ramsey, the Jags obviously have a gaping hole in the lineup. This scenario allows them to fill that void with the best possible prospect in the draft class and the most recent of a long line of talented artists in production stop to get out of Columbus.

As our own Daniel Griffis pointed out earlier this week, the 2020 class looks strong in the corner half, which is a good thing for Jacksonville. Landing Okouda would be great for the Jags after losing the unhappy Ramsey. Okudah is one of the hottest names in the draft for now, and it's easy to understand why. Most experts tend to admire his athleticism, his hip fluidity and his ceiling as a man-to-man defender. Okudah is no slouch in the zone blanket either and he has shown it repeatedly in the Ohio State system that uses a combination of blankets.

Later, Easterling gave the Jags a versatile offensive weapon with their brilliant new Rams pick.

After replacing Jalen Ramsey with his first-round pick earlier, the Jags can use one of the choices they've got back to give their offense the # 1 receiver they so badly need. Shenault is a complete prospect with size and explosiveness who does his best after the shot.

With just under 300 yards and two touchdowns, Shenault did not get the most anticipated stats from him this year, but he's evolving into a fundamental muscle tension, which he's still not 100% at. However, before the injury, he was a monster when it came to scoring after the match and college defensemen simply struggled to get him into the field.

In addition, he proved his effectiveness from several places in the Colorado Offensive, playing outside, in the slot and as a wild quarterback. With good offensive spirit, the Jags could give the defensive coordinators the match of his versatility, while giving Nick Foles or Gardner Minshew II a player who also represents a dangerous vertical threat.

Kiper and McShay choose the first sleepers for the NFL draft in 2020

Five weeks into the start of the university football season, it seems like a good time to start identifying potential candidates who could play for the first round in the April 2020 NFL draft. Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay come and go to name talented players who are hiding just outside of their top 32 choices. One of these players took the leap this weekend with a career day for Alabama.

See who Mel and Todd think they have the lead in the first round, as well as their governors and prospects under the radar to watch.


Sleeping in the first round

OK, so maybe we can not call Smith a sleeper anymore. No, not after he had five touchdowns during Saturday's loss of Ole Miss. And these are not easy TDs – he scored on games of 74, 25, 23, 33 and 27 yards.

Mostly known for his 41-yard touchdown at the national title game as a real freshman, Smith is not as fast as Henry Ruggs III or as explosive as Jerry Jeudy, but his speed is gentle and creates a divide on each course. . He has also demonstrated his ability to break tackle in space and he is a good road racer. At 6 feet 1 inches, 175 pounds, he still has room to grow in his body.

It's a really deep receiver class, and I want to see what Smith performs at the combine. At the present time, I ranked it as a second round pick, but it could definitely get up. Tua Tagovailoa has incredible weapons and Bama could have three receivers of the first round. – Kiper
