While hundreds of players will hear their respective names called during the 2020 NFL draft, the most notable moments happen when a quarterback comes off the board.
The reaction is understandable, given the importance of the position. Picking a true franchise quarterback can result in a decade of success, while whiffing on the selection can be a long-term setback.
Looking ahead to 2020, there's a clear three-man group—Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert—at the top with a couple of first-round options on the periphery. Most experts in the draft community even agree on where the players will land.
We're looking at the latest mocks from B/R's Matt Miller, The Athletic's Dane Brugler, NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah, ESPN's Todd McShay and Chris Trapasso of CBS Sports. In 2019, per Fantasy Pros, all five finished in the top 20 of mock draft accuracy.
Although the projection for No. 1 pick isn't quite unanimous overall, the selected panel all agree on Burrow's future home:
The Cincinnati Bengals.
Prior to the NFL Scouting Combine in late February, some questions lingered about Burrow's desire to play for the Bengals. However, he put those rumors to rest in Indianapolis.
Brugler noted Cincinnati met with Burrow during the Combine, adding it'd be a "major upset" if he's not the starter in 2020.
