The order for the top 20 picks in the 2020 NFL draft is set, and the Cincinnati Bengals are officially on the clock for Round 1, which begins Thursday, April 23.

You've already seen Todd McShay's early Mock Draft for picks 1-32, but we asked NFL Nation reporters who cover teams picking in the top 10 to take an early look at offseason needs and priorities for all 10 teams. Which will look at quarterbacks early? Which will focus on defense? And which could supplement their high pick with an aggressive approach to free agency?

Here's what each team will prioritize:

1. Cincinnati Bengals (2-14)

Is it quarterback or bust for the Bengals at No. 1, or could they be active in the free agency/trade market to find a QB?

Without a doubt: Given the quarterback situation, it will be a massive stunner if the Bengals don't take one with the top overall pick. All eyes will be on Ohio native Joe Burrow, who was the topic of conversation long before he won the Heisman and led LSU to the College Football Playoff. Burrow could rejuvenate an apathetic fan base that left many seats empty in 2019.

The Bengals still have Andy Dalton under contract for another year, but there's a strong possibility the team will trade or cut him before next season.

Biggest offseason need: Quarterback. Someone like Burrow could help the Bengals tread water while they look for upgrades across a roster in need of a massive overhaul. -- Ben Baby


2. Washington Redskins (3-13)

Do you expect the new Washington coach to bring in a quarterback to compete with Dwayne Haskins in 2020, or is Haskins the unquestioned starter?
