2021 NFL Mock Draft
April 5, 2021
1) Jacksonville Jaguars: Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson
There really shouldn’t be much to say about this pick other than its a mortal lock. Lawrence is a special prospect who has all the tools to be a generational quarterback. Urban Meyer came to the NFL and out of “retirement” to have Trevor Lawrence as his quarterback.
2) New York Jets: Zach Wilson, QB, BYU
It would appear the Jets have zeroed in on Wilson. There is always a chance they go a different direction whether it’s another quarterback or another position and could possibly be the reason the 49ers gave up so much to go up and get the 3rd pick. However, that’s really just speculation and the evidence for them going with Wilson is there. Wilson is a mobile quarterback with a strong arm who had a great year in 2020. He is not the clear consensus #2 the same way that Lawrence is the #1 but he is gaining more momentum as the draft nears closer.
3) San Francisco 49ers (from MIA): Trey Lance, QB, North Dakota St.
There’s plenty of speculation of who this pick can be. There are many that believe the 49ers have targeted Mac Jones as the 49ers choice, while others believe they made the move for Trey Lance upside and some believe that Justin Fields is the preferred choice. I am a believer that Mac Jones will be a very good quarterback however, I could see this going just about any direction. For now, I am going to venture that this is going to be Trey Lance. After seeing him at his Pro Day the 49ers may have been convinced that he is a top 3 quarterback in this draft. Lance has the ability to be an elite dual threat with a strong arm, accurate passer and he can make plays with his legs. He is a complete package but should not be rushed along which could give Jimmy G another season in the Bay Area.
4) Atlanta Falcons: Justin Fields, QB, Ohio St.
If I had to guess, I think the Falcons will (and should) trade out of the #4 spot. There are enough teams that are interested in the two remaining quarterbacks that they can get future 1sts and more. However, the rule of thumb is generally when a new regime comes in, they go get their quarterback. Arthur Smith is an up and coming coach with a very unique offensive mindset so he may be able to tailor the perfect offense for Justin Fields. There is no denying Fields arm strength, accuracy or his electric athletic ability but he does need to work on refining his game as a passer.
5) Cincinnati Bengals: Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon
Many people believe this is the landing spot for Sewell as the Bengals need to do a better job of protecting Joe Burrow. They did sign Riley Reiff but that was really a 1 year deal but that may just be a short term answer. Sewell is a unique one of a kind talent that has the ability to hold down the left tackle spot for the Bengals for a long period of time. He has great technique, strength and work ethic to be a starter for years to come.
6) Miami Dolphins (from PHI): Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida
I believe the Dolphins got back into the top 6 because they are comfortable with 3 players. My guess is that they are Sewell, Pitts and Ja’Marr Chase. Chase is certainly an option here as he would elevate the Dolphins passing game and give Tua a legitimate #1 receiver, however, Kyle Pitts could potentially be a Hall of Fame caliber tight end. The only knock on his game has been his blocking which was vastly improved in 2020. He can line up anywhere on the field and creates a ton of mismatches across the board.
7) Detroit Lions: Ja’Marr Chase, WR, LSU
The Lions are severely lacking in the wide receiver department at the moment with Breshad Perriman and Tyrell Williams slated to be the starters. I wouldn’t doubt if the Lions took 3 receivers total in this draft in order to help out Jared Goff. Chase is an elite wide receiver talent and is worthy of being a top overall selection. He has the physical tools to be a dominant receiver and was the best player in college football in 2019.
8) Carolina Panthers: Mac Jones, QB, Alabama
Matt Rhule and company are very familiar with Jones after working with him at the Senior Bowl. Many are putting question marks around Jones because of the talent around him. One of the inaccurate assumptions is that Rhule wants a mobile quarterback. At the Senior Bowl Rhule said, “Just in general, I think you want someone who’s elitely intelligent. I think you want someone who’s a tremendous leader. I think you want someone who’s accurate. I think you want someone who has arm talent to make all the throws. And I think you want someone who has a history of making plays in crucial situations.”
9) Denver Broncos: Micah Parsons, LB, Penn St.
This is an interesting pick as I can see the Broncos go in a variety of directions or potentially trading back. They could use an offensive linemen but their offensive line has been better (in large part to Mike Munchak) and Rashawn Slater would be a great pick. However, Micah Parsons is a great value at 9th overall and fits in with the Broncos defense. He has elite athleticism and can run sideline to sideline or vertically with tight ends, running backs and probably receivers. He is a good tackler with good technique.
10) Dallas Cowboys: Jaycee Horn, CB, South Carolina
This is a great spot for the Cowboys to get potentially their top player on their board. The Cowboys have failed to replace Byron Jones so they could use a cornerback with great length and speed and that’s what a lot of the top tier cornerbacks in this draft possess. In this mock, Jaycee Horn is the first corner off the board. While Patrick Surtain II or Caleb Fairley can go this high, Horn has shown to be an aggressive corner with great ball skills and has the ability to be a lockdown cornerback.
11) New York Giants: Rashawn Slater, OL, Northwestern
The Giants should trade down here but Dave Gettleman doesn’t really do that. They could address the defense but Rashawn Slater might be an ideal fit for the Giants. He is probably best suited for right tackle or guard in the NFL and would give the Giants a reliable starter at either spot. Last years 3rd round pick Matt Peart looked solid in spot duty last year but they had to let go of Kevin Zeitler who was their top interior offensive linemen. Slater has a very high ceiling but also a very high floor. He is a solid starter immediately for the Giants.
12) Philadelphia Eagles (from MIA): DeVonta Smith, WR, Alabama
The Eagles moved on from DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery who have been injured and essentially useless the last couple of seasons. Last year’s first round pick Jalen Reagor battled some injuries but certainly has the ability to be a very good receiver still. The Eagles need depth badly at the position and could potentially look to take multiple receivers in this draft. Last years Heisman winner, DeVonta Smith is an elite talen. He has great speed, hands, route running and is a complete package. The biggest knock on him is that he only weighs 170 pounds. While that’s light, he certainly plays like it doesn’t matter.
13) Los Angeles Chargers: Patrick Surtain II, CB, Alabama
The Chargers are going to look to add some offensive line help in this draft but they won’t reach for one here with Surtain on the board. Cornerback is a big need for the Chargers and with possibly the top cornerback on the board they should jump at the chance to take him. While Horn went first in this mock, there’s a high probability that Surtain could be the first one taken. He has great technique, length and his speed is much better than he gets credit for. He is an ideal fit for the Chargers.
14) Minnesota Vikings: Kwity Paye, Edge, Michigan
The Vikings are another team that could and should look long and hard at the offensive linemen in this draft. However, they do need to improve their pass rush and getting a player across the line from Danielle Hunter should be a priority. Paye is a very good run defender with a high upside as a pass rusher. He has a good closing burst and his strength is there but he just needs to refine his skills. The Vikings are a great fit for Paye.
15) New England Patriots: Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama
This would be an ideal fit for the Patriots offense if they were able to get Jaylen Waddle in the first round. Waddle is an explosive player who has incredible speed and he gets to his top speed better than anyone in the draft. He can play in the slot or outside which would suit his role in New England well. Even though they added Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne in free agency, Waddle is a legitimate #1 receiver.
16) Arizona Cardinals: Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech
If Caleb Farley is still on the board when the Cardinals pick they should run up to the podium. Longtime Cardinal, Patrick Peterson, moved on in 2021 leaving a whole at cornerback. While Peterson is on the downswing of his career, the Cardinals don’t have much to replace him with. Enter Caleb Farley, who has great length, speed and ball skills to make him an elite cornerback in the NFL. He went to Virginia Tech as a wide receiver but moved to cornerback early on in his career. He is still learning the position and has an incredibly high ceiling.
17) Las Vegas Raiders: Alijah Vera-Tucker, iOL, USC
The Raiders jettisoned some veteran players from their offensive line this offseason but cornerstone left tackle Kolten Miller is now locked up long term. The team cut Richie Incognito but brought him back but most likely for only 2021. Aijah Vera-Tucker played left tackle for the Trojans this year but will move to guard in the NFL due to his lack of length. He is a very athletic but strong offensive linemen who is very good in both run blocking and pass protection. He should be an instant starter for the Raiders.
18) Miami Dolphins: Zaven Collins, Edge/LB, Tulsa
Collins is a very intriguing prospect that had a remarkable 2020 season. Collins has great size and athletic ability and can play any linebacker spot or come off the edge. He showed improved coverage abilities, tackling and play recognition in 2020. With the Dolphins Collins would give them a playmaker in the middle of the field. After moving on from guys like Kyle Van Noy, Collins can fill the void and help them get a lot more athletic in the front seven.
19) Washington Football Team: Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech
Washington could really use a quarterback of the future but with the top 5 going so early they have to look elsewhere. They do need to build their offensive line and Christian Darrisaw falling to them at 19 may be a steal. Trent Williams was an elite left tackle and Geron Christian has been solid but can definitely be upgraded. Darrisaw is a player that has grown a lot over the course of his collegiate career. He has good athleticism, strength and his technique is very good for a young player.
20) Chicago Bears: Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma St.
The Bears have an obvious need for quarterback and, as I have done in my previous mock, wouldn’t be surprised if they were aggressive to move up but they may be too far away. The consolation prize could be a franchise right tackle in Teven Jenkins. Jenkins has experience all across the offensive line but is best suited to play right tackle in the NFL. He is an underrated athlete and moves well in space. He could be a day 1 starter.
21) Indianapolis Colts: Gregory Rousseau, Edge, Miami (FL)
The Colts need to get more pressure off the edge than they did in 2020. Denico Autry and Justin Houston who combined for 15.5 sacks are gone so finding a guy who can get to the quarterback will be helpful. People continue to poke holes in Gregory Rousseau’s game but he was a 19 year old freshmen, where he ended up having 15.5 sacks (Myles Garret had 11.5 sacks as a freshman). Thats a huge number and while he does need to refine his game the ceiling is there.
22) Tennessee Titans: Greg Newsome, CB, Northwestern
The Titans brought in Janoris Jenkins but they need a lot more help at cornerback. Greg Newsome is another long, faster corner with the ability to lock down opposing receivers. He is an aggressive cornerback who likes to be physical. He can play in any system and would fit the Titans look for in a corner. He had 20 passes defended the last two seasons and continued to show improved ball skills.
23) New York Jets (from SEA): Azeez Ojulari, Edge, Georgia
Ojulari is the definition of a boom or bust prospect. He has shown elite pass rushing skills over his time at Georgia and has progressively gotten better each year. He has good bend around the edge, an explosive first step and uses his hands effectively. He is not a great run defender but has shown glimpses of being able to help in that area. He does need to add some bulk to stand up to some of the bigger tackles in the NFL. He has the tools to be a double digit sack guy early on in his career.
24) Pittsburgh Steelers: Asante Samuel, CB, Florida St.
The Steelers could go a few different directions with this pick. They have said they will be making a commitment to the running game so there is certainly a chance that a running back or an offensive linemen could be the selection but they also need to replace Mike Hilton and Steven Nelson. Samuel is an aggressive but slightly undersized corner. He has received a lot of attention and could be a surprise pick in the first round. Samuel checks all the boxes of a Kevin Colbert first round pick (Power 5 school, visited at his Pro Day, non-skill player) and the Steelers tend to like players with NFL bloodlines.
25) Jacksonville Jaguars (from LAR): Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU
The Jaguars and Urban Meyer are rebuilding this entire franchise and getting an elite player in the backend will go a long way. Moehrig is the most complete safety in the draft. He can play single high, split safety, cover the slot, hes good against the run, a good tackler, he’s really the complete package. He would be a great fit for the Jaguars and I wouldn’t be surprised if he went in the mid-first round.
26) Cleveland Browns: Jamin Davis, LB, Kentucky
The Browns have done a great job of building their roster and are a legitimate Super Bowl contender. On the defensive side, they could use some more playmakers in the middle of the field. They could use an upgrade at linebacker and Davis has been flying up draft boards and really showed his athleticism at his Pro Day. He is a hard hitter and can run with tight ends and running backs.
27) Baltimore Ravens: Terrace Marshall, WR, LSU
The Ravens have tried to use a lot of different weapons for Lamar Jackson but finding a player who can get separation and play both outside and out of slot will be a big bonus for their offense.Marshall is a physical receiver who ran an impressive 40 time at his Pro Day to help increase his stock. He gives the Bengals another weapon to go with Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd in the passing game.
28) New Orleans Saints: Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB, Notre Dame
The Saints are in a big transition after Drew Brees retired so they may have to rely more on defense than they have in the past..Owusu-Koramoah is an explosive player who can play sideline to sideline and cover tight ends or running backs. He is a bit undersized which hurts his draft stock but he can make a big impact in different ways.
29) Green Bay Packers: Elijah Moore, WR, Mississippi
The Packers have proved they don’t need to have a deep wide receiving corps to win games and for Aaron Rodgers to have success. However, in order to make it back to the Super Bowl and win they are going to need other weapons on offense. Moore has great instincts, hands and runs exceptional routes. He has a lot of speed and can do damage with the ball in his hands.
30) Buffalo Bills: Joe Tryon, Edge, Washington
The Bills could look to get another offensive weapon for Josh Allen but Tryon might be too good to pass up at the end of the first round. Tryon sat out 2020 after having a very good 2019 season where he had 8 sacks and 12.5 tackles for a loss. He has great bend off the edge and is a tall, lengthy pass rusher who gives the Bills some held off the edge.
31) Kansas City Chiefs: Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame
The Chiefs had trouble protecting Patrick Mahomes in the Super Bowl and then let both of their starting offensive tackles go after the season. Liam Eichenberg isn’t the most athletic tackle in the class but after Penei Sewell might have the ability to make the most immediate impact. He could play left or right tackle for the Chiefs and be an integral role at another Super Bowl run.
32) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Christian Barmore, DL, Alabama
Bruce Arians recently spoke about the draft and how the draft will be “fun” without any glaring needs, but noted he likes to build the trenches and speed on defense. Barmore is a perfect fit for the Bucs defense. He has a ton of natural ability with great strength and leverage but he needs to refine his game. He can play a rotational role in his rookie year while learning how to play the position.
33) Jacksonville Jaguars: Kadarius Toney, WR, Florida
The Jaguars have a pair of young receivers in DJ Chark and Laviska Shenault and brought in Marvin Jones via free agency but Toney adds a much different element that gives Trevor Lawrence plenty of weapons.
34) New York Jets: Eric Stokes, CB, Georgia
The Jets need to add more impact players on defense and Stokes is another long, athletic corner with good instincts.
35) Atlanta Falcons: Najee Harris, RB, Alabama
The Falcons run game was atrocious last year. Arthur Smith knows the value of a weapon out of the backfield particularly in the form of a running back from Alabama.
36) Miami Dolphins (from HOU): Richie Grant, S, Central Florida
Grant had a very good season in 2020 and was one of the best players on the field during the entire week of the Senior Bowl. He is a versatile safety who will make an immediate impact.
37) Philadelphia Eagles: Nick Bolton, LB, Missouri
Bolton is worthy of being a first round selection. He is a complete linebacker who hits hard and fast. The Eagles need to address their linebackers and need a significant upgrade.
38) Cincinnati Bengals: Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota
Rashod Bateman makes some spectacular catches, runs good routes and has very good hands. He is a reliable target who compliments what the Ravens have.
39) Carolina Panthers: Alex Leatherwood, iOL, Alabama
Leatherwood is a versatile lineman with experience at both tackle and guard. His lack of ideal length probably pushes him inside to guard but he would be a big upgrade for the Panthers.
40) Denver Broncos: Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota St.
Garrett Bolles is better than he gets credit for but on the right side the Broncos have a hole. Radunz is a very athletic tackle that can play the left or right side. Radunz can sneak into the end of the first round.
41) Detroit Lions: Levi Onwuzurike, DL, Washington
The Lions traded for Michael Brockers but they could still use another starter. Onwuzurike is a quick, penetrating three technique that will help the Lions interior pass rush.
42) New York Giants: Joseph Ossai, Edge, Texas
Ossai is still a raw prospect but an incredible athlete with a ton of upside. He has shown flashes of dominance and is a good fit for the Giants defense.
43) San Francisco 49ers: Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia
Richard Sherman was a great corner but is moving on. The 49ers need another cornerback and Campbell is another cornerback that has great length and speed.
44) Dallas Cowboys: Jaelin Phillips, Edge, Miami (FL)
I wouldn’t be surprised to see Phillips go in the mid first round. I think what leads to his fall is the concern about his injuries and time off from football. Phillips is arguably the most polished pass rusher with a huge upside, but we do see medical concerns push players down.
45) Jacksonville Jaguars (from MIN): Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan
Cam Robinson was franchise tagged but he may only have one more year in Jacksonville. Mayfield doesn’t have a ton of starting experience but has faced some elite pass rushers. He can kick inside to guard if needed but he can stay at tackle in the NFL.
46) New England Patriots: Elijah Molden, DB, Washington
Molden is an instinctive and disruptive defensive back who played cornerback in college but is best suited for a nickelback or safety role in the NFL. He would be a perfect fit in New England.
47) Los Angeles Chargers: Jayson Oweh, Edge, Penn St.
Oweh is one of the best overall athletes in the entire draft. He has intangibles you can’t teach but his lack of production in 2020 is concerning. Oweh could find himself in the first round due to his athletic ability.
48) Las Vegas Raiders: Pete Werner, LB, Ohio St.
The Raiders are hoping to get more out of Cory Littleton this upcoming year but adding Werner gives them flexibility. Werner is much more than people realize and proved it at his Pro Day. He was a very good all around linebacker for his entire career.
49) Arizona Cardinals: Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson
This would be incredible value for the Cardinals but Etienne could slip a little due to his inability to pass protect.
50) Miami Dolphins: Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue
The Dolphins need to surround Tua with weapons. Moore is small in stature but an incredibly strong receiver with elite speed, route running and hands.
51) Washington Football Team: Jabril Cox, LB, LSU
Cox transferred from North Dakota St. and was a dominant linebacker at both places. He is a very athletic linebacker who can help in coverage and is just as effective attacking the line of scrimmage.
52) Chicago Bears: Kelvin Joseph, CB, Kentucky
After moving on from Kyle Fuller the Bears could use an upgrade and depth at cornerback. Joseph is another cornerback in the long list of long, athletic corners.
53) Tennessee Titans: Pat Freiermuth, TE, Penn St.
Freiermuth is a great value with this selection. He is solid athletically and not the same type of player Pitts is however, he will develop into a solid all around tight end who can work the middle of the field and be a consistent run blocker.
54) Indianapolis Colts: Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas
Anthony Costanzo retired after flirting with the idea last year which has left a hole on the offensive line. Sam Tevi is not a reasonable replacement and adding Cosmi at this stage in the second round is a steal.
55) Pittsburgh Steelers: Landon Dickerson, iOL, Alabama
Dickerson is one of the best interior offensive linemen in the draft but his draft stock gets hurt by his injury history. He seems to be progressing along nicely in his rehab.
56) Seattle Seahawks: Wyatt Davis, iOL, Ohio St.
Davis is a NFL ready guard who can plug right in and play for the Seahawks. The Seahawks don’t have a first round pick so they need to make sure they nail this choice.
57) Los Angeles Rams: Hunter Long, TE, Boston College
Long elevated his stock this year with an impressive performance as a receiver and a blocker. The Rams have some intriguing players at tight end but Long is the closest player to a complete tight end
58) Baltimore Ravens: Jevon Holland, S, Oregon
Holland sat out 2020 but he was very good throughout his career with the Ducks. Holland is a versatile defensive back but his best bet is as a single high safety or split. Either way the Ravens need an upgrade at safety.
59) Cleveland Browns: Carlos Basham, Edge, Wake Forest
Basham isn’t an elite athlete like some of the other pass rushers in this draft but he makes up for it with good instincts and technique. He is a good run defender and plays with an edge.
60) New Orleans Saints: Amari Rodgers, WR, Clemson
Michael Thomas is still an elite wide receiver but finding someone else who can help as a reliable receiver in the passing game is mandatory. Rodgers was very good in 2020 and dominated at the Senior Bowl.
61) Buffalo Bills: Javonte Williams, RB, North Carolina
Devin Singletary has been a let down and Zack Moss is a complimentary back but Williams is a 3 down workhorse the Bills are looking for.
62) Green Bay Packers: Creed Humphrey, iOL, Oklahoma
Corey Lindsey moved on in free agency and the Packers don’t have enough depth to make up for the loss. Humphyre can start immediately for the Packers.
63) Kansas City Chiefs: Ronnie Perkins, Edge, Oklahoma
The Chiefs could use another pass rusher across from Frank Clark. Perkins was suspended early in the season but finished with 10.5 tackles for a loss and 5.5 sacks in 6 games.
64) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jackson Carman, OT, Clemson
Carman is a big, imposing tackle who can move inside and play guard if needed. He has good versatility which is beneficial for a team like the Bucs who don’t have a lot of glaring needs.
65) Jacksonville Jaguars:Daivyon Nixon, DL, Iowa
The Jaguars added a lot during free agency but could still use some youth on their interior defensive line. Nixon gives the Jaguars a disruptive defensive tackle with a ton of upside. He is incredibly quick off the snap and is strong at the point. .
66) New York Jets: D’Wayne Eskridge, WR, Western Michigan
Eskridge had a very good week at the Senior Bowl and showed an ability to get open whenever he wanted.
67) Houston Texans: Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, USC
The Texans have a lot of holes and not a lot of picks. St. Brown is a steady receiver who has good technique and receiving skills. He dropped too many passes last year but he has the makings of a good compliment to Brandin Cooks.
68) Atlanta Falcons: Quincy Roche, Edge, Miami (FL)
Roche has stormed off draft boards since the end of the season. He had a very good week at the Senior Bowl and proved he was very athletic at his Pro Day. The Falcons need as much pass rush help as they can get.
69) Cincinnati Bengals: Alim McNeill, DL, North Carolina St.
The Bengals moved on from Geno Atkins so they could use some depth along the defensive line. Neill is a stout, penetrating nose tackle
70) Philadelphia Eagles: Aaron Robinson, CB, Central Florida
Robinson was a highly recruited prospect out of high school and originally signed on with Alabama but transferred after his first year. He has good instincts and can play inside or outside but might fit best in the slot.
71) Denver Broncos:Tommy Togiai, DL, Ohio St.
Togiai is one of the strongest prospects in the entire draft. He is still a raw prospect but has a ton of upside as both a run defender and pass rusher.
72) Detroit Lions: Chazz Surratt, LB, North Carolina
Surratt is a former quarterback who moved to linebacker and has really excelled in his role. He is a great athlete with great contact power.
73) Carolina Panthers: Talanoa Hufanga, S, USC
Hufanga is a rare safety that doesn’t get the credit for. He can do everything on the field whether its helping in the run game or in coverage. Hufanga is going to be a great pick for the team that takes him.
74) Washington Football Team (from SF): Davis Mills, QB, Stanford
Mills was a highly recruited quarterback but after initially committing to Alabama switched to Stanford and sat behind K.J. Costello initially before Costello suffered some injuries. Mills has good intangibles but the jury is out.
75) Dallas Cowboys: Jay Tufele, DL, USC
Tufele has shown glimpses of being a good pass rusher but he is still a work in progress. He has the ability to be a good all around 3 down linemen in the NFL.
76) New York Giants: Baron Browning, LB, Ohio St.
Browning didn’t light up the stat sheet but he has a ton of athletic ability and can run vertically with tight ends.
77) Los Angeles Chargers: Dyami Brown, WR, North Carolina
The Chargers can use another receiver to pair with Keenan Allen and Mike Williams. Brown is a big playmaker and can stretch the field. He runs good routes and is very quick off the line.
78) Minnesota Vikings: D’Ante Smith, OT, East Carolina
Smith had a long productive career at East Carolina and a great week at the Senior Bowl. Smith is a great value in the middle of the 3rd.
79) Las Vegas Raiders (from ARZ): Jaylen Twyman, DL, Pittsburgh
The Raiders could use some depth along the interior defensive line. Twyman was very productive in college and has a very quick first step and good burst.
80) Las Vegas Raiders: Andre Cisco, S, Syracuse
Cisco has a lot of production throughout his college career. He plays a good deep free safety role and would fit well in the backend of the Raiders defense.
81) Miami Dolphins: Walker Little, OT, Stanford
The jury is out on Little. After a very good start to his college career, he battled injuries in 2019 and then sat out 2020. He could have first round pick potential.
82) Washington Football Team: Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma St.
Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel are a good combo but adding another receiver will be important during the draft. Wallace doesn’t have elite speed but can get open by running good routes and has good hands.
83) Chicago Bears: Kenneth Gainwell, RB, Memphis
Gainwell is a dual threat out of the backfield that’s capable of being a gamebreaker in the run and pass game.
84) Philadelphia Eagles (from IND): Trey Smith, iOL, Tennessee
Smith is a very strong, bulky offensive linemen that will have to move from tackle to guard in the NFL.
85) Tennessee Titans: Anthony Scwartz, WR, Auburn
Schwartz has blazing speed and adds a different element to the Titans receiving corps.
86) New York Jets (from SEA): Michael Carter, RB, North Carolina
Carter is a good athlete (don’t pay attention to the average 40 time) with good hands and will be the best running back on the Jets roster.
87) Pittsburgh Steelers: Trey Sermon, RB, Ohio St.
The Steelers need to improve their running game and Sermon fit what the Steelers like to see in their running backs with good vision, patience and balance.
88) Los Angeles Rams: James Hudson, OT, Cincinnati
Hudson, could and should, ultimately go higher than this. He is converted defensive linemen who didn’t allow a sack last year. He has a high upside but he needs to round out his game.
89) Cleveland Browns: Ifeatu Melifonwu, CB, Syracuse
Melifonwu has great size and length and good athletic ability to give him a high upside but his technique needs to be refined. There’s a chance he has to eventually move to safety in the NFL.
90) Minnesota Vikings (from BAL): Quinn Meinerz, iOL, Wisconsin-Whitewater
Meinerz is from DIII powerhouse Wisconsin-Whitewater but received an invitation to the Senior Bowl and was absolutely dominant all week long. He should have good strength and balance and proved that he could play any spot on the interior offensive line.
91) Cleveland Browns (from NO): Nico Collins, WR, Michigan
Collins is a big target with good athleticism. He gives the Browns a 3rd receiver who can make an impact stretching the field.
92) Green Bay Packers: Robert Rochell, CB, Central Arkansas
Rochell had a very good week at the Senior Bowl and proved he belonged. The best bet would be for him to play on special teams and develop into a starting cornerback.
93) Buffalo Bills: Milton Williams, DL, Louisian Tech
Williams is a very intriguing prospect. He has been a high riser over the last two seasons and has good strength and quickness.
94) Kansas City Chiefs: Josh Myers, iOL, Ohio St.
Myers limitations as an athlete are what pushes him into the third round. He has great technique and is very strong and could start for the Chiefs immediately.
95) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Patrick Jones, Edge, Pittsburgh
Jones was very productive in college and had an up and down week at the Senior Bowl. He has strength off the edge and some athletic ability.
96) New England Patriots: Kellen Mond, QB, Texas A&M
Mond had a good week at the Senior Bowl and had a solid pro day showing off his athleticism and arm strength. He is a hard worker with a ton of upside.
97) Los Angeles Chargers: Spencer Brown, OT, Northern Iowa
Brown is another large and athletic offensive tackle. He is good enough now to be a contributor but has the ability to develop into a starting left tackle.
98) New Orleans Saints: Tommy Tremble, TE, Notre Dame
Tremble wasn’t used extensively in the passing game because of Cole Kmet and Michael Mayer being prime targets but when Tremble touched the ball he did some impressive things. He is a capable blocker.
99) Dallas Cowboys: Hamsah Nasirildeen, S, Florida St.
Nasirildeen had an ACL injury and was only able to play in 2 games this year. He is a big safety who is tough at the line of scrimmage.
100) Tennessee Titans: Payton Turner, Edge, Houston
Turner doesn’t have elite athleticism which is what will hurt his draft stock. He needs to refine his pass rushing moves but has all the intangibles you look for in a successful pass rusher.
101) Detroit Lions (from LAR): Tutu Atwell, WR, Louisville
Atwell has great receiving skills but weighing in at 155 pounds puts him at a serious disadvantage. The Lions could use additional receivers so Atwell adds another dimension to their offense.
102) San Francisco 49ers: Osa Odighizuwa, DL, UCLA
He has an elite first step off the ball and can get into the backfield quickly but he is a bit undersized. He makes up with it with quickness but his lack of bulk is what could push him down.
103) Los Angeles Rams: Rodarius Williams, CB, Oklahoma St.
Williams has good technique but is not an elite athlete which can hinder some of his ability to play in different spots in the field.
