Paul and Matt are back together to kick off the coverage of the 2020 NFL Draft Prospects.

Next, Paul and Matt do a way-too-early one round 2020 Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft as a way to discuss many prospects. They share their quick thoughts on each selection and what intrigues them most about the player.
