TA's 2021 NFL Mock Draft 1.0

  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson - Easy pick for the Jaguars, even though I'm not 100% sold he's a lock to be great.

  2. New York Jets: Zach Wilson, QB, BYU - Jets will take another QB three years after taking Sam Darnold in round 1 and while I like Wilson, the Jets will likely ruin him and they will be picking another QB in round 1 come 2024.

  3. Miami Dolphins: Devonta Smith, WR, Alabama - If the Dolphins stick with Tua, they will likely get him a weapon at number 3 and they go with someone he is familiar with even though I think he will be a bust.

  4. Atlanta Falcons: Ja'Marr Chase, WR, LSU - Best WR in the class and someone that new HC Arthur Smith won't be able to resist taking as he looks to build a great offense around Matt Ryan.

  5. Cincinnati Bengals: Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon - Another easy pick, the Bengals got their franchise QB last year, now they have to protect him. Sewell is a stud.

  6. Philadelphia Eagles: Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama - Reports are the Eagles are all in on Jalen Hurts and want to build around him this offseason. Waddle might be one of the most underrated players in this draft, I think he is going to be elite.

  7. Detroit Lions: Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State - Lions need a lot of help on defense and land the best LB and probably the best defensive player in the draft.

  8. Carolina Panthers: Trey Lance, QB, North Dakota State - This almost feels like this is a done deal. Carolina is almost 100% going to take a QB and it feels like they are targeting in on Lance. All I have to say is good luck.

  9. Denver Broncos: Patrick Surtain II, CB, Alabama - Surtain is the best CB in the draft and CB is the Broncos biggest need, seems like a perfect marriage.

  10. Dallas Cowboys: Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech - Dallas needs help in the secondary and Farley is the next best CB. I'm not sold on him but Dallas needs help on defense so it's a decent pick.

  11. New York Giants: Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida - Giants need weapons on offense, position is irrelevant. Pitts is versatile and explosive, would help any offense he joins.

  12. San Francisco 49ers: Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State - It's pretty clear the 49ers want to make a change at QB if the right situation presents itself. With Fields slipping to number 12 the 49ers pounce and will look to move on from Jimmy G.

  13. Los Angeles Chargers: Rashawn Slater, OT, Northwestern - Similar to the Bengals, the Chargers got their franchise QB last year, now they need to protect him.

  14. Minnesota Vikings: Kwity Paye, DE, Michigan - The Vikings need to rebuild their defensive line and Paye is a good place to start.

  15. New England Patriots: Christian Barmore, DT, Alabama - Belichick gets back to drafting in his wheelhouse, the defensive front 7. He also drafts more Alabama players than anyone so this pick makes sense. Barmore is a beast on the defensive line, good against the run and is a solid pass rusher from the interior. The Patriots really need to improve their defensive line, especially when it comes to stopping the run and Barmore would be a great addition to the Patriots defense.

  16. Arizona Cardinals: Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virgina Tech - After adding JJ Watt in free agency this teams biggest need is probably on the offensive line to protect Murray. Darrisaw projects to be a solid player.

  17. Las Vegas Raiders: Gregory Rousseau, DE, Miami - The Raiders need to continue to add playmakers to the defense. Rousseau is an athletic freak and would be a nice addition to the Raiders.

  18. Miami Dolphins: Jeremiah Owusa-Koramoah, LB, Notre Dame - It's pretty clear Brian Flores wants to get younger and more athletic at LB. JOK is a good one.

  19. Washington Football Team: Mac Jones, QB, Alabama - The WFT is still in search of their franchise QB after missing on Dwayne Haskins. Mac Jones is a solid and a much safer option at QB.

  20. Chicago Bears: Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas - Offensive line is a big need for the Bears and Cosmi stock is rising.

  21. Indianapolis Colts: Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota - Colts will need to add some weapons around Wentz if they want him to have a chance. They could also lose TY Hilton in free agency.

  22. Tennessee Titans: Azeez Ojulari, Edge, Georgia - Mike Vrabel is still trying to fortify his defensive front and Ojulari could be the perfect fit.

  23. New York Jets: Najee Harris, RB, Alabama - Classic move of drafting QB and RB high in same draft. A number of teams have done this over the years and the Jets will do the same and land the top RB in the draft class.

  24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Alijah Vera-Tucker, G, USC - AVT is a fast riser and fills a major need for the Steelers.

  25. Jacksonville Jaguars: Wyatt Davis, G, Ohio State - The Jaguars need offensive line help, especially now that they have to protect Trevor Lawrence. Urban Meyer takes an o-linemen he knows in Ohio State's Wyatt Davis.

  26. Cleveland Browns: Jaelen Phillips, Edge, Miami - Browns could use some help getting after the QB and Phillips is a great pass rusher.

  27. Baltimore Ravens: Joseph Assai, LB, Texas - Has Ravens pick written all over him. Versatile LB who can play all over the Ravens defense.

  28. New Orleans Saints: Zaven Collins, LB, Tulsa - I feel like the Saints have been looking to improve their defense every draft for like five years now. All of a sudden they might not have a great offense anymore but they still go defense.

  29. Green Bay Packers: Jaycee Horn, CB, South Carolina - A rising CB who could very well end up being the best CB in this draft. He also fills a major need for the Packers, their defense was bad at times last year, especially against the pass.

  30. Buffalo Bills: Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson - Sort of a surprise pick here but Bills could do better at RB and Etienne is one of the best RB's in this class.

  31. Kansas City Chiefs: Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma State - Obvious need for the Chiefs, wouldn't be surprised if they trade up to get one of the higher ranked offensive tackles.

  32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Asante Samuel Jr., CB, Florida State - Buccaneers defense played well in the playoffs and Super Bowl but their weakness throughout the season was in the secondary. Samuel brings a solid cornerback to the roster that should crack the rotation early and help improve this secondary.
