NFL DRAFT 2021 PLAYER PROFILES

MOCK NFL DRAFTS
Pick Team Pos Player
#1
Jaguars
QB
This is still an obvious one, despite some scouts saying Zac Wilson has more upside than Lawrence.
#2
Jets
QB
As Fitz mentioned in his last mock, this is nailed on - especially considering Sam Darnold has been sent on his way for a collection of picks.
#3
49ers

Dolphins
QB
Justin Fields
Ohio State
My last mock had the Niners taking Mac Jones here, which given the general media consensus still seems like the easy choice. But it seems the genesis of that rumor came from Chris Simms - who admitted it was just his feeling rather than any genuine inside information. We are hearing there is apparently a battle in the Niners back office between the GM and the coach over this pick. We are guessing Shanahan eventually sees sense here.
#4
Falcons
QB
Trey Lance
North Dakota State
The Falcons would like a QB of the future and Lance will be in an ideal situation. He can sit behind Matt Ryan and learn.
#5
Bengals
OT
The Bengals fill a position of need with one of the most athletically gifted tackles for years, you can't argue with this pick.
#6
Dolphins

Eagles
TE
Kyle Pitts
Florida
After Kyle Pitts put on a show (running a 4.46 40) at his pro day his stock is on the rise, and the Eagles will be happy for him to bolster their receiving corps after it became known Ertz could be shipped out of town.
#7
Lions
WR
This is another easy one, Smith is a no-brainer here. The Lions need receiving help and one of the most productive college players of all time is available
#8
Panthers
QB
Mac Jones
Alabama
The Panthers are yet another QB needy team and are willing to overlook Mac Jones's limited athletic ability thinking he has the ability to start right away.
#9
Broncos
CB
It's a difficult one - with the Broncos having so many needs and their most apparent one at QB can't be filled here - with all the top signal-callers off the board. Patrick Surtain is pretty much a can't miss prospect and Bronco fans should be happy to see him in orange come September.
#10
Cowboys
CB
Caleb Farley
Virginia Tech
They will be kicking themselves that the top CB prospect was picked one pick earlier. Still, Farley has been generating a lot of draft buzz recently and we hear the Cowboys are high on him.
#11
Giants
WR
The Giants are in need of a top WR. Lucky for them Chase is still available, and they will expect him to solidify the receiving corps for years to come.
#12
Eagles

49ers
LB
Micah Parsons
Penn State
While not a massive position of need, the Eagles can't pass up on the best central defender in the draft. He has Patrick Willis-level talent and will be a great building block for the defense.
#13
Chargers
OT
Christian Darrisaw
Virginia Tech
The Chargers need some help to keep Herbert upright, and Darrishaw is the #1 ranked tackle on our board. An easy fit.
#14
Vikings
DE
Jayson Oweh
Penn State
Oweh ran 4.36 at his pro-day, bearing in mind he is 6-5 and 257lbs that is next-level freakish athleticism. The Vikings need help all over the defense and can't pass up this raw superstar in the making.
#15
Patriots
WR
Patriots need help at wideout and they will be happy Waddle has fallen this far.
#16
Cardinals
CB
Jaycee Horn
South Carolina
The Cardinals have a need at CB and there are a couple of decent ones left on the board. Horn is one of the easiest decisions of draft day.
#17
Raiders
DE
With the most pro-ready pass rusher on the board, Rousseau will be a fantastic pick for a Raiders defense crying out for edge help.
#18
Dolphins
WR
Rashod Bateman
Minnesota
Fitz's latest mock had Miami taking Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, but I think teams will be put off by his lack of size for the position. With Bateman still on the board, the Phins can't resist his combination of size and speed.
#19
Football Team
S
Washington can't be too happy with how the draft has worked out for them. They began the day needing a QB of the future, unfortunately for them, the day finishes the same way - they go best player available. Moehrig is by far and away the best safety in the draft and he'll be a mainstay in the secondary even after they figure out a new name.
#20
Bears
OT
Rashawn Slater
Northwestern
The Bears are going to feel hard done by the end of the day, with all their early targets gone. They pick for need and get the best remaining offensive lineman.
#21
Colts
OL
Fearing a run on tackles the Colts reach, a little -and pick the solid Vera-Tucker to protect their new QB.
#22
Titans
DE
Phillips is a part of a collection of relatively unproven but high upside pass-rushing prospects available. He fills a position of major need for an impoverished Titans defense.
#23
Jets
RB
Najee Harris
Alabama
The Jets just can't resist the top running back available. They finish the first round with franchise QB and the top workhorse back. I know it's a crazy thought, but things are actually looking brighter for the NYJ!
#24
Steelers
RB
The Steelers must be crushed to see the top RB come off the board one pick earlier. They don't let their disappointment last too long and pick the second-best back in the draft. He'll start from day one.
#25
Jaguars
OT
Jalen Mayfield
Michigan
With Trevor coming to town - he'll need some help staying off his back. There aren't too many quality OL prospects still available, so the Jags are forced to reach. While not exactly exciting the fans, at least it'll keep Lawrence happy.
#26
Browns
LB
The Browns will be happy that one of the top LB prospects in the draft is still available. He's an explosive and versatile player whose only negative is he is a bit of a tweener.
#27
Ravens
DE
Kwity Paye
Michigan
The Ravens need receiving and edge help. Kwity Paye is still on the board, and it is an easy choice. Some regard him as a top ten pick- maybe the Ravens will have a major steal on their hands?
#28
Saints
CB
Asante Samuel Jr.
Florida State
The Saints hope Samuel can be as good as his dad and grab this Florida State speedster to solidify their corner group.
#29
Packers
LB
With no obvious WR falling to them, the Packers pick up the best player available. Collins is a do it all LB who could help right away in the GB defense.
#30
Bills
OL
Wyatt Davis
Ohio State
The Bills are more than happy that Davis is still available. He's great value here and will rapidly become Josh Allen's best friend.
#31
Chiefs
OT
Teven Jenkins
Oklahoma State
The Chiefs are crying out for offensive line help after both starting tackles left. The versatile Jenkins is the best available player on our board and will be a day one starter protecting Mahomes.
#32
Buccaneers
DT
A defensive tackle is finally taken, right at the end of round one and the Bucs get a real steal. Some scouts think Barmore should have stayed in school for another year. We think he'll do just fine on this dominating Buc defense.
