2020 NFL Mock Draft Day 2: Trent Williams hot-spot, Redskins pick
57. Los Angeles Rams: EDGE Bradley Anae, Utah. Anae is a pure pass rusher and would help to replace Dante Fowler, who enjoyed a great campaign with the Rams last season. Pairing Anae with Aaron Donald would be fun to watch.
58. Minnesota Vikings: G/C Matt Hennessy, Temple. At this point, the Vikings have missed out on the sure things at tackle. So, they’ll go for a guard/center option. They seem to like Hennessy, so he may be the pick here.
Also, it’s worth noting that this is the Trent Williams sweet spot. If the Vikings get here with no true starting tackle options available, they may call up the Redskins in the hopes of getting Williams. It may not be with this pick, but it’s definitely a pick to keep an eye on. But if they go with a tackle here, that would be bad for the team’s chances of moving Williams.

59. Seattle Seahawks: EDGE Josh Uche, Michigan. I had Uche mocked to the Seahawks in the first round on Wednesday, but here, he’s available for them in the second round. Funny how that works out.
60. Baltimore Ravens: OL Lloyd Cushenberry, LSU. Cushenberry is a high-character player with the versatility to play both center and guard. For the Ravens, he’d be tasked with helping to replace Marshal Yanda. That’s not easy, but Cushenberry will give it his all.
61. Tennessee Titans: RB J.K. Dobbins, Ohio State. The Titans need depth behind Derrick Henry if they want their ground-and-pound offense to keep working. Dobbins could pair really well with Henry and make the duo an unstoppable one-two punch.
62. Green Bay Packers: TE Cole Kmet, Notre Dame. The Packers can’t go into the season with Marcedes Lewis as the top option on their tight end depth chart. Cole Kmet is considered to be one of the best tight ends in a weak class, but he’s a fine value here late in the second.
63. Kansas City Chiefs: OT Matt Peart, UConn. It came down to the trenches here. I was between defensive lineman Marlon Davidson and offensive lineman Matt Peart. Given the Chiefs’ need for some youth at tackle, Peart seemed like the better option here.
64. Seattle Seahawks: S Jeremy Chinn, Southern Illinois. Chinn doesn’t fill a need, but he fits a mold that the Seahawks like. A productive, athletic defensive playmaker who should find success at the NFL level.
