- 2021 NFL Mock Draft (Two Rounds) – A Run On Quarterbacks - April 5, 2021
Here we go again with another make or miss NFL draft. The players names may change but the pass or fail picks remains the same. The Jacksonville Jaguars are on the clock with the top pick but there is no mystery who they are using that pick on (hint: He’s a tall quarterback with long hair). Here’s a look at what could happen:
1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Trevor Lawrence; Quarterback, Clemson – The Jaguars need a face of the franchise and they get their man in Lawrence. He can make all the throws and is an underrated runner.
2. New York Jets: Penei Sewell; Offensive Tackle, Oregon – The expectation is the Jets are taking a quarterback but instead, they get a franchise tackle to protect Sam Darnold.
3. Miami Dolphins: DeVonta Smith; Wide Receiver, Alabama – The Dolphins get the best playmaker in the draft and a player who can do it all. He is an exceptional route runner and sure handed.
4. Atlanta Falcons: Justin Fields; Quarterback, Ohio State – It’s time for the Falcons to turn the page from Matt Ryan. Fields is a dual threat who throws a great deep ball.
5. Cincinnati Bengals: Ja’Marr Chase; Wide Receiver, LSU – The Bengals got their quarterback last draft, now it’s time to get him some weapons. Chase has special written all over him. Joe Burrow is smiling.
6. Philadelphia Eagles: Jaylen Waddle; Wide Receiver, Alabama – The Eagles need someone dynamic on the outside regardless of who’s at quarterback. Not only can Waddle makes plays as a receiver, he can also impact the return game.
7. Detroit Lions: Zach Wilson; Quarterback, BYU – With Matthew Stafford’s departure imminent, a successor is in order. Wilson is a very efficient passer who can make plays with his legs as well.
8. Carolina Panthers: Micah Parsons; Inside Linebacker, Penn State – When the Panthers’ defense was good, it was linebacker driven. They get the best available in Parsons, a high motor tackling machine.
9. Denver Broncos: Gregory Rousseau; Defensive End, Miami – The Broncos need to improve their defense and what better way to do that than with a relentless pass rusher? Rousseau has strong hands and great bend.
10. Dallas Cowboys: Patrick Surtain Jr.; Cornerback, Alabama – The Cowboys need help on defense, especially the back end. Surtain Jr. has shutdown ability and the genetics from his former NFL dad.
11. New York Giants: Kyle Pitts; Tight End, Florida – The Giants need to give Daniel Jones more passing options. Don’t be fooled, Pitts is listed as a tight end but has wide receiver skills. He’s a matchup nightmare.
12. San Francisco 49ers: Caleb Farley; Cornerback, Virginia Tech – The Niners need to shore up the secondary and plan for life after Richard Sherman. Farley is long, fits their system and is a sure tackler in space.
13. Los Angeles Chargers: Christian Darrisaw; Offensive Tackle, Virginia Tech – The Chargers’ passing attack has the makings of being lethal with Justin Herbert pulling the trigger. Darrisaw will help give him time to throw.
14. Minnesota Vikings: Christian Baremore; Defensive Tackle, Alabama – The Vikings need to solidify the defensive line. Batemore can not only stop the run but can also apply quarterback pressure up the middle.
15. New England Patriots: Mac Jones; Quarterback, Alabama – The Patriots need a signal caller that Coach Bill Belichick can work with. Jones has the intangibles the Patriots like and he’s deadly accurate.
16. Arizona Cardinals: Kwity Paye; Defensive End, Michigan – With an already explosive offense, the Cardinals go defense. Adding a talented pass rusher never hurts. Paye has an array of moves to get to the quarterback.
17. Las Vegas Raiders: Carlos Basham Jr.; Defensive End, Wake Forest – The defense needs upgrading and pass rushers are at a premium. Basham Jr. has a quick first step and is twitchy off the edge.
18. Miami Dolphins: Samuel Cosmi; Offensive Tackle, Texas – Protecting Tua Tagovailoa is a priority and Miami makes good on that with this pick. Cosmi has long arms and a nasty disposition.
19. Washington Football Team: Trey Lance; Quarterback, North Dakota State – Washington needs to get this right after the Dwayne Haskins fiasco. Lance has the tools to be an NFL starter and the potential to be a franchise quarterback.
20. Chicago Bears: Tevin Jenkins; Offensive Tackle, Oklahoma State – The Bears need to shore up the offensive line. Jenkins is an athletic blocker and has the versatility to fit any scheme.
21. Indianapolis Colts: Kyle Trask; Quarterback, Florida – With Philip Rivers retiring and questions whether Jacoby Brissett is the long term answer, a quarterback here makes sense. Trask has a big arm and is a fiery competitor to match.
22. Tennessee Titans: Jayson Oweh; Defensive End, Penn State – The Titans’ pass rush was problematic and exposed their secondary. Adding Oweh can help: he’s a speed rusher with great technique.
23. New York Jets: Travis Etienne; Running Back, Clemson – The Jets can help Sam Darnold by getting him an every down back who is also a threat out the backfield as a pass catcher.
24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Rashawn Slater; Offensive Guard, Northwestern – The Steelers need to get younger across the offensive line. Slater is versatile: he can play every position on the offensive line, which makes him a steal here.
25. Jacksonville Jaguars: Alex Leatherwood; Offensive Tackle, Alabama – The Jaguars get their franchise quarterback…so they better protect him. Leatherwood can pass and run block well because of outstanding footwork.
26. Cleveland Browns: Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah; Outside Linebacker, Notre Dame – The Browns need players behind a talented defensive line who can make plays. Owusu-Koramoah is a sure tackler and can pressure the passer.
27. Baltimore Ravens: Joseph Ossai; Outside Linebacker, Texas – The Ravens entertain a receiver but instead go with defense. Ossai is a good choice. He can drop back in coverage and is a sure handed tackler.
28. New Orleans Saints: Azeez Olujari; Outside Linebacker, Georgia – The Saints need to add playmakers to their linebacker group. Olujari is athletic and can cover a lot of ground.
29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jaelan Phillips; Defensive End, Miami – The Buccaneers need to add pass rushers so they don’t always have to blitz to get pressure on the quarterback.
30. Buffalo Bills: Jaycee Horn; Cornerback, South Carolina – The Bills need someone opposite Tre’Davious White to shore up the secondary. Horn is a ball hawk who will come up and support the run.
31. Green Bay Packers: Zavin Collins; Inside Linebacker, Tulsa – The Packers’ offense is fine, their defense can improve. Collins gives them a leader in the middle of their defense who can also apply pressure on the quarterback.
32. Kansas City Chiefs: Jordan Smith; Defensive End, UAB – The Chiefs’ offense is on another level but the defense could use some juice. Enter Smith, a pass rush specialist who can disrupt a passing attack.
33. Jacksonville Jaguars: Shaun Wade; Cornerback, Ohio State
34. New York Jets: Rashod Bateman; Wide Receiver, Minnesota
