The way-too-early favorite to pick No. 1 overall in the 2021 draft
Picks for the 2020 MVP, and whether Patrick Mahomes could get No. 2
Who is the sneaky-good free agent that teams should covet next month?
Matt Bowen, NFL analyst: Austin Hooper, TE, Falcons. At age 25, with the route-running chops to win in the middle of the field, Hooper will have plenty of options on the open market. In 13 games last season, he caught 75 passes for 787 yards and five scores. An ideal fit for Hooper in 2020? Give me the Patriots.
Mike Clay, fantasy writer: Tre Boston, S, Panthers. What does Boston need to do to get some love on the free-agent market? The 27-year-old has played on cheap one-year deals with the Chargers, Cardinals and Panthers during the past three seasons, but he has been one of the league's better safeties during the span. A savvy franchise with a void at safety would be wise to lock down Boston to a multiyear contract.
