2020 NFL Mock Draft -- Xavier Cromartie 1st Round (v1.0)

In 2015, College Football Metrics joined forces with preeminent draft forecaster Xavier Cromartie to produce mock drafts and top 100 prospect boards for entry into The Huddle Report’s exclusive, experts-only NFL Draft scoring. Xavier starts to post mock drafts and top 100 boards in January and continues up to the draft in April.

Xavier's five-year average score in the The Huddle Report's 100-pick accuracy is #2 in the nation (see standings here: mock draft scoring) and see his 1st-round mock accuracy here: 1st-RoundMock Draft
