The 2020 NFL Draft class brings us a loaded crop of defensive linemen, with Auburn's Derrick Brown firmly behind Ohio State's Chase Young on the list of top DL prospects. Brown projects to be an early first-round pick, but there's likely to be quite a few teams competing for his services.

With that in mind, let's take a look at some expert predictions for Brown's landing spot in the 2020 NFL Draft.
