The 2020 NFL Draft class brings us a loaded crop of offensive linemen, with Clemson's John Simpson among them. Simpson projects to come off the board in the earlier rounds, 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 Simpson's landing spot in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Bleacher Report
Matt Miller, of Bleacher Report, has Simpson going to the Houston Texans with the No. 57 overall pick in the second round.

Sporting News
Vinnie Iyer, of Sporting News, projects the Denver Broncos to take Simpson with No. 83 overall pick in the third round.

Sports Illustrated
Similar to Miller, Kevin Hanson, of Sports Illustrated, also expects Simpson to land with the Houston Texans. However, he expects the Texans to pull the trigger on Simpson a little later with the No. 90 overall pick in the third round.

USA Today
Luke Easterling, of USA Today's Draftwire, has Simpson going to the New York Jets toward the middle of the fourth round with the No. 120 overall selection.

Round 2
- Dolphins (No. 56)
- Texans (No. 57)

Round 3
- Broncos (No. 83)
- Texans (No. 90)

Round 4
- Jets (No. 120)
- Jaguars (No. 140)

While the lone consensus opinion among the six experts highlighted above meets with two predictions that Simpson lands with the Texans, they both come separated by nearly 30 picks between the late second and third round. It also appears that Simpson's draft range is firmly rooted around the third round here.
