Most experts would say the Kansas City Chiefs' first round pick, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, was a great pick.
He has the traits that make him a perfect fit for the team. The Chiefs have been in need for a running back to help their running game. Kansas City was ranked 23rd in rushing yards and didn't have a runner get over 500 yards in the season. Finding a consistent starter would help their running game. Edwards-Helaire could be that guy and could be one of the best draft picks in 2020.

NFL teams sometimes need to take risks on draft picks to try to put them over the top. Here is a list of five players that are considered risky picks.
Draft Risk: Jordan Love, QB, Packers
Anytime a team picks a quarterback in the first round of the draft when they already have a great quarterback is risky. The most obvious reason is Aaron Rodgers won't be too happy to have his...
The NFL Draft has come and gone for the 2020 season. For the most part, there weren't too many surprises outside of Jordan Love to the Packers and Jalen Hurts to the Eagles.

The tough part is finding players outside the first round who can make an immediate impact. Here is a list of five players picked outside the first round who could be potential stars.

The 2020 NFL Draft was a historical night as it was the first virtual draft ever conducted. For the most part, the presentations from ABC, ESPN, and NFL Network went smoothly. Some teams were successful, while others had a tough night. Even some players won big and fell hard after Thursday night. So who were the NFL Draft Winners and Losers?
1st Round Winners
Of course Miami was a big winner after three first round picks that should impact the team right away. Tua Tagovailoa was the number one quarterback before injuries. His upside and arm talent could make him...
It didn't take long for the third trade of the NFL Draft to happen as the 49ers look to grab a receiver.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported San Francisco traded the 31st, 117th, and 176th picks to Minnesota for the 25th pick.
The 49ers jumped up to pick Arizona State receiver Brandon Aiyuk. It was a position in need for San Francisco as Emmanuel Sanders is no longer with the team. Aiyuk is a great route runner who is quick on his feet. If the 49ers need a first down conversion, Aiyuk will be the guy to look at.
One of his major...
The Green Bay Packers stunned the NFL Draft by trading up to pick Utah State quarterback Jordan Love.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the Packers received the 26th pick while the Miami Dolphins got the 30th pick and a fourth-round pick.
Love has a strong arm who can stay patient in the pocket. He has the ability to move out of the pocket when he needs to use their legs. The question he had in college was consistency. He threw for 20 touchdowns and 17 interceptions last season at Utah State. That would be a concern for some teams. His upside potential...
The New England Patriots decided to trade out of the first round in the 2020 NFL Draft.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the Patriots gave the Chargers the 23rd pick in exchange for a second and third round pick.
The Chargers took that pick and selected Oklahoma's linebacker Kenneth Murray. He proved to be a physical linebacker who can play three downs. Murray can match up with running backs and tight ends with his coverage skills and speed. He's an athletic linebacker who can instantly make an impact on the Chargers defense. They paid a big price to land the linebacker, but...
The first trade of the 2020 NFL Draft finally occurred after almost two hours into the event.
ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers moved up one spot with the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers receive the 14th and 117th pick while Tampa Bay receives the 13th and a seventh-round pick.
Tampa Bay ended up selecting Iowa offensive tackle Tristan Wirfs with the 13th pick. Wirfs was widely predicted to land with the New York Giants at the 4th pick in the draft so his drop was a surprise. The New York Giants selected Georgia OT Andrew Thomas...
