Justin Herbert's Oregon highlight reel shows he is ready for the NFL (1:01)

Justin Herbert had an outstanding year after returning to Oregon in 2019, and Mel Kiper Jr. is confident that an NFL team will draft Herbert in the top 10. (1:01)

The order for the top 32 picks of the 2020 NFL draft is set, with the Cincinnati Bengals, who had the league's worst record at 2-14, picking No. 1. Could they choose top quarterback prospect Joe Burrow?

The Las Vegas Raiders, Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins, meanwhile, each have multiple first-round picks.

The 2020 NFL draft begins with Round 1 on April 23 from Las Vegas and continues with Rounds 2 and 3 on April 24 and Rounds 4 to 7 on April 25. The draft will be broadcast on ABC, ESPN, the ESPN app and NFL Network.

Check out the final 1-32 order below. Efficiency rankings for each team are updated through the end of the regular season.

Draft rankings: McShay | Kiper
McShay Mock 1.0 | Kiper Mock 1.0

1. Cincinnati Bengals (2-14)

The last time the Bengals picked first overall was in 2003, when they took Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Carson Palmer. He spent seven seasons in Cincinnati and made the Pro Bowl twice.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 30th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 25th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 16th
Overall ranking: 31st


2. Washington Redskins (3-13)

The last time the Redskins picked second overall? It was in 2012, when they also took a Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback -- Robert Griffin III. This will be the fourth time Washington has had the second pick.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 32nd
Defensive efficiency ranking: 27th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 4th
Overall ranking: 32nd


3. Detroit Lions (3-12-1)

The last time the Lions picked third overall was in 2002, when they took quarterback Joey Harrington. He went 18-37 as a starter in his four seasons with Detroit.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 19th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 29th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 1st
Overall ranking: 25th


4. New York Giants (4-12)

The last time the Giants picked fourth overall was in 2004, when they took quarterback Philip Rivers. They then traded him and their 2005 first-round pick to the Chargers for first overall pick Eli Manning.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 25th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 28th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 17th
Overall ranking: 29th


5. Miami Dolphins (5-11)

Of the Dolphins' past eight first-round picks, only three are still on the roster. Three others, offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil, safety Minkah Fitzpatrick and quarterback Ryan Tannehill, were traded away and made the Pro Bowl this season for their new teams.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 24th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 30th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 22nd
Overall ranking: 30th


6. Los Angeles Chargers (5-11)

This marks only the third time since 2004 that the Chargers have picked in the top 10. The other two picks netted defensive end Joey Bosa (No. 3 overall) and wide receiver Mike Williams (No. 7).

Offensive efficiency ranking: 16th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 23rd
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 21st
Overall ranking: 20th


7. Carolina Panthers (5-11)

With the Panthers past three top-10 picks, they selected running back Christian McCaffrey (No. 8), linebacker Luke Kuechly (No. 9) and quarterback Cam Newton (No. 1). Carolina lost eight straight games to end the season.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 28th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 20th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 23rd
Overall ranking: 27th


8. Arizona Cardinals (5-10-1)

Help for 2019 No. 1 overall pick Kyler Murray probably will be the order of the day for the Cardinals. Eight wide receivers rank among ESPN NFL draft expert Todd McShay's top 30 prospects.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 13th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 31st
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 14th
Overall ranking: 26th


9. Jacksonville Jaguars (6-10)

The Jaguars' pick will be their 18th in the top 10 since the franchise came into existence in 1995, the most of any team. The Cardinals, who will be making their 15th top-10 pick since 1995, are second.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 26th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 26th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 6th
Overall ranking: 28th


10. Cleveland Browns (6-10)

The Browns must protect quarterback Baker Mayfield better than they did in 2019. They haven't taken an offensive tackle in the first round since selecting Joe Thomas third overall in 2007.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 22nd
Defensive efficiency ranking: 22nd
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 9th
Overall ranking: 23rd


11. New York Jets (7-9)

The Jets haven't spent a first-round pick on an offensive player who wasn't a quarterback since selecting tight end Dustin Keller (No. 30) in 2008. This would be a good spot to grab their first first-round offensive tackle since three-time Pro Bowler D'Brickashaw Ferguson in 2006.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 29th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 15th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 15th
Overall ranking: 24th


12. Las Vegas Raiders (7-9)

The Raiders don't have a second-round pick, but they have two first-rounders and three third-rounders. They'll look to improve the league's worst defense, by FPI's efficiency metric.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 6th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 32nd
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 28th
Overall ranking: 22nd


13. Indianapolis Colts (7-9)

Another prime spot for one of the talented members of the wide receiver class? Colts wideouts struggled mightily to stay healthy in 2019.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 18th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 12th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 32nd
Overall ranking: 19th


14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-9)

It isn't considered a deep draft for offensive linemen, which is the Bucs' primary need. This pick could instead provide help for one of the NFL's most-improved defenses.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 20th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 8th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 31st
Overall ranking: 15th


15. Denver Broncos (7-9)

The Broncos have unearthed some solid offensive prospects in the past two drafts in wide receiver Courtland Sutton, running back Royce Freeman, tight end Noah Fant and offensive tackle Dalton Risner. They could opt for another playmaker or look for a replacement at cornerback for Chris Harris Jr., who is a free agent in 2020.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 23rd
Defensive efficiency ranking: 16th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 5th
Overall ranking: 18th


16. Atlanta Falcons (7-9)

The Falcons have used their past three first-round picks, including two in last April's draft, on offense. They had one of the NFL's worst defenses in 2019, so they could address cornerback or defensive line here.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 12th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 24th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 29th
Overall ranking: 21st


17. Dallas Cowboys (8-8)

The Cowboys might need to address wide receiver, with no contract yet for Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb also slated for free agency. The secondary also is an area that could be hit hard by free-agent departures.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 3rd
Defensive efficiency ranking: 18th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 30th
Overall ranking: 8th


18. Miami Dolphins (from 8-8 PIT)

The second of Miami's three first-round picks -- acquired in the trade with the Steelers for Minkah Fitzpatrick -- could address any number of needs. The Dolphins haven't had multiple first-round picks since the 1992 draft.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 24th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 30th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 22nd
Overall ranking: 30th


19. Las Vegas Raiders (from 8-8 CHI)

General manager Mike Mayock and coach Jon Gruden have several options with their capital on Days 1 and 2 of the draft, which include trading up to pick a player they like.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 6th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 32nd
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 28th
Overall ranking: 22nd


20. Jacksonville Jaguars (from 9-7 LAR)

The Jaguars acquired this pick in the Jalen Ramsey trade. It is possible they could turn it around and use it on a cornerback. Wide receiver and linebacker also seem like strong possibilities.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 26th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 26th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 6th
Overall ranking: 28th


21. Philadelphia Eagles (9-7)

It is a good thing for the Eagles that there is a deep and talented receiver class. They're definitely in the market given their lack of production at the position in 2019: They didn't have a wideout reach 500 receiving yards for the first time since 1966.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 11th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 19th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 26th
Overall ranking: 14th


22. Buffalo Bills (10-6)

The Bills fit the bill of yet another team looking to put playmakers around a young quarterback. Yes, the wide receiver class is that deep. And the past three times the Bills took one in the first round, he delivered at least one 1,000-yard season.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 21st
Defensive efficiency ranking: 5th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 3rd
Overall ranking: 10th


23. New England Patriots (12-4)

The Patriots' offensive line has struggled this season. Could the team take another lineman here? The Pats don't have a second-round pick but could have as many as three third-rounders with compensatory selections.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 17th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 1st
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 9th
Overall ranking: 4th


24. New Orleans Saints (13-3)

The Saints don't have a second-round pick, so this one will be of the utmost importance. After Michael Thomas, their receiving depth chart is barren.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 4th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 11th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 2nd
Overall ranking: 5th


25. Minnesota Vikings (10-6)

The Vikings figure to need a cornerback, with free agency looming for Trae Waynes and Mackensie Alexander. And they like drafting CBs: They've taken four in the first or second round since 2013.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 5th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 10th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 25th
Overall ranking: 7th


26. Miami Dolphins (from 10-6 HOU)

If the Dolphins use all three of their first-round picks, it would be only the 13th time in league history that a team has taken at least three players in the first round (the Jets took four in 2000). This pick comes from the Texans dealing for Laremy Tunsil.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 24th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 30th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 22nd
Overall ranking: 30th


27. Seattle Seahawks (11-5)

Free agency is expected to hit hard in the trenches in Seattle. The Seahawks could look for help along the D-line, where multiple starters could depart. They used the No. 29 pick on pass-rusher L.J. Collier in 2019, but he did not have a sack as a rookie.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 14th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 17th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 11th
Overall ranking: 13th


28. Baltimore Ravens (14-2)

The Ravens haven't generated much of a pass-rush in 2019, ranking in the bottom half of the league. They haven't drafted an edge rusher in Round 1 since Terrell Suggs in 2003.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 2nd
Defensive efficiency ranking: 4th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 12th
Overall ranking: 1st


29. Tennessee Titans (9-7)

With star running back Derrick Henry due to hit free agency, the Titans could look to fill that hole here. This draft doesn't have a top-10 talent at running back, so it is possible the first back off the board doesn't go until late in Round 1.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 10th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 14th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 27th
Overall ranking: 12th


30. Green Bay Packers (13-3)

The Packers haven't taken a skill-position player in the first round since drafting Aaron Rodgers in 2005. Is it time to add a playmaker at receiver?

Offensive efficiency ranking: 9th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 6th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 24th
Overall ranking: 6th


31. San Francisco 49ers (13-3)

With no picks after this one until the fifth round, the Niners could look to move down for multiple picks in Rounds 2 through 4.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 8th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 3rd
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 20th
Overall ranking: 3rd


32. Kansas City Chiefs (12-4)

With three corners slated to hit free agency, the Chiefs should look to grab one. Kansas City has taken only one corner in the first round since 1992 -- Marcus Peters in 2015.

Offensive efficiency ranking: 4th
Defensive efficiency ranking: 13th
Special-teams efficiency ranking: 9th
Overall ranking: 4th
