2021 mock draft from may 2020


Recommended Posts

i thought you guys might find this interesting. they get alot of names right, just not in where they were picked. i know Wilson was a late bloomer but i didnt know AVT was. wasnt even in the 1st rd.

With the 2020 NFL Draft wrapped up, eyes start lingering towards the coming season. Now, there’s a lot of uncertainty regarding the future of sports but hopefully that doesn’t stifle excitement for whenever football comes back. What is certain is that the league will try to resume as normal, meaning we should be expecting another draft in a year. Obviously that is a way always, but here is how it would play out right now…

Draft order determined by season win predictions from Sport Line.

  1. Jacksonville Jaguars- Trevor Lawrence, Quarterback, Clemson: If Jacksonville is selecting this high, the Gardner Minshew project didn’t pan out. Lawrence might have Andrew Luck hype by the end of next season.
  2. Cincinnati Bengals- Penei Sewell, Offensive Lineman, Oregon: The Bengals need to surround Joe Burrow with a great offensive line. Sewell is already considered an elite prospect.
  3. Washington- Samuel Cosmi, Offensive Tackle, Texas: With Trent Williams finally free from Washington’s clutches, the team will need a new franchise left tackle if there is any hope of developing Dwayne Haskins.
  4. Miami Dolphins- Ja’Marr Chase, Wide Receiver, LSU: Ja’Marr Chase wasn’t just the best receiver in college football last year, he might be the best receiver prospect since Julio Jones and AJ Green. No brainer for Miami’s rebuilding offense.
  5. Carolina Panthers- Justin Fields, Quarterback, Ohio State: Carolina is betting on Teddy Bridgewater this year but if they end up here, they lost the bet. Fields might be overshadowed by Trevor Lawrence, but he is an excellent quarterback in his own right.
  6. New York Giants- Patrick Surtain II, Cornerback, Alabama: The Giants keep adding physical, smart defenders to their rebuilding defense.
  7. New York Jets- Gregory Rousseau, Edge, Miami: The Jets having been looking for a true edge rusher for what feels like a decade. They get him here.
  8. Las Vegas Raiders- Quincy Roche, Edge, Miami: The Temple transfer ends up in Las Vegas, filling in their need for an athletic pass rusher.
  9. Atlanta Falcons- Kyle Pitts, Tight End, Florida: The Falcons could be rebuilding the whole team if they’re picking this high next year. However it’s hard not to see Pitts being a great fit in their offense.
  10. Detroit Lions- Micah Parsons, Linebacker, PSU: The Lions will need speed at linebacker after not picking up Jarrad Davis’ fifth year options. Micah Parsons is the next great Penn State linebacker.
  11. Miami Dolphins (From Houston)- Marvin Wilson, Defensive Tackle, FSU: Marvin Wilson would pair with Christian Wilkins to form a formidable duo for the Dolphins up front.
  12. Arizona Cardinals- Justyn Ross, Wide Receiver, Clemson: The Cardinals keep turbocharging their offense by grabbing a talented receiver to complement Nuk Hopkins.
  13. Cleveland Browns- Rashod Bateman, Wide Receiver, Minnesota: The Browns might need another outside receiver and Bateman looks like a big play threat to watch next year.
  14. Chicago Bears- Jamie Newman, Quarterback, Georgia: Jamie Newman showed a lot of talent at Wake Forest and looks to put up big numbers in a loaded Georgia offense. Newman looks like a good fit to replace Mitch Trubisky in Chicago.
  15. Jacksonville Jaguars (From Los Angeles Rams)- Richard LeCounte, Safety, Georgia: The Jaguars have quite a few holes to address, but adding more speed to their secondary could be a priority next year.
  16. Denver Broncos- Jaylen Twyman, Defensive Tackle, Pitt: The Broncos add a disruptive lineman to their defensive line, continuing to build the defense in VIc Fangio’s image.
  17. Green Bay Packers- Devonte Smith, Wide Receiver, Alabama: The Packers finally go wide receiver in the first round with Alabama’s most productive receiver from 2019…
  18. Tennessee Titans- Rondale Moore, Wide Receiver, Purdue: The Titans add serious speed to their offense with a multi-level threat at wide receiver.
  19. Los Angeles Chargers- Alaric Jackson, Offensive Tackle, Iowa: The Chargers keep building their offense to cater to Justin Herbert.
  20. Seattle Seahawks- Walker Little, Offensive Tackle, Stanford: The Seahawks get a stud offensive tackle to finally protect Russell Wilson.
  21. New England Patriots- Shaun Wade, Defensive Back, Ohio State: The Patriots have a lot of questions going into next year, but they have never shied away from drafting high IQ defensive backs.
  22. Indianapolis Colts- Wyatt Davis, Offensive Guard, Ohio State: Frank Reich and company building the offensive line into an absolute force is something that would surprise no one.
  23. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Travis Etienne, Running Back, Clemson: Travis Etienne would have contended for the top running back in 2020 but decided to stick around for another year. Etienne would be a great fit in Tampa’s explosive offense.
  24. Philadelphia Eagles- Dylan Moses, Linebacker, Alabama: The Eagles should have a lot of firepower on offense next year, so eyes turn to upgrading their defense. Moses lost last year to an injury but is going to be a leader on the Alabama defense next year.
  25. Pittsburgh Steelers- Alex Leatherwood, Offensive Lineman, Alabama: The Steelers add a highly athletic pass blocker to keep their offensive line strong.
  26. Minnesota Vikings- Carlos Basham, Edge, Wake Forest: The Vikings find another talented pass rusher to bookend their line with Danielle Hunter.
  27. Buffalo Bills- Trey Smith, Offensive Lineman, Tennessee: The Bills add another physical lineman to their smash mouth offense.
  28. Dallas Cowboys- Pat Freiermuth, Tight End, PSU: The Cowboys grab an athletic tight end to add to their already high powered passing game.
  29. New Orleans Saints- Jaylen Waddle, Wide Receiver, Alabama: Waddle is going to be a fast riser next year with Henry Ruggs and Jerry Jeudy in the NFL. He would be a dangerous addition to the Saints offense.
  30. Baltimore Ravens- Hamsah Nasirildeen, Safety, FSU: The Ravens added a ton of speed to their defense in the 2020 draft, so adding a player like Hamsah Nasirildeen makes sense for their philosophy.
  31. San Francisco 49ers- Chuba Hubbard, Running Back, Oklahoma State: Chuba Hubbard surprised a lot of people when he went back to school after rushing for almost 2,100 yards last season. Throwing Hubbard’s home run hitting ability into the Niners offense is a match made in heaven.
  32. Kansas City Chiefs- Jevon Holland, Defensive Back, Oregon: The Chiefs do not have any glaring holes on their roster, so adding a versatile defensive back to their defense seems like a good move. You can never have too many ballhawks on defense.

now heres what they say about 2022

  1. Houston Texans — Spencer Rattler, Quarterback, Oklahoma: The Texans are going through a state of flux that feels unparalleled in the NFL right now. Spencer Rattler is immensely talented and getting him is a good way for them to hit the reset button.
  2. Detroit Lions — Sam Howell, Quarterback, UNC: The Lions have laid a good foundation for the future, but Jared Goff is not the quarterback to take the team to the next level. Sam Howell might be.
  3. New York Jets — Kayvon Thibodeaux, Edge, Oregon: The Jets are at the beginning of a rebuild, and where they spent a lot of capital on offense in 2021, they can build that defense next offseason starting with the best defensive lineman in college football.
  4. Cincinnati Bengals — Evan Neal, Offensive Tackle, Alabama: The Bengals need to keep putting talent around their young quarterback. Now that he has weapons in the passing game, the focus should be on protecting him.
  5. Jacksonville Jaguars — Drake Jackson, Edge, USC: The Jaguars should have a pretty good offense in 2021, but the defense is still young and you can never have too many good pass rushers.
  6. Las Vegas Raiders — Justyn Ross, Wide Receiver, Clemson: Health permitting, Justyn Ross could be the best receiver in college football next year. The Raiders have lots of holes, but getting premium talent should always be a priority.
  7. Philadelphia Eagles — Derek Stingley Jr, Cornerback, LSU: After missing out on the top defensive backs this year, the Eagles snag arguably the top defender in college football to boost their secondary.
  8. New York Giants — DeMarvin Leal, Defensive Lineman, Texas A&M: The Giants need to get better up front. DeMarvin Leal is a high upside three-down defender who can disrupt inside.
  9. Carolina Panthers — Kyle Hamilton, Safety, Notre Dame: The Panthers will probably need a quarterback at this point, but in a weak class they can grab a top defender and keep moving.
  10. Atlanta Falcons — Zion Nelson, Offensive Tackle, Miami: The Falcons have a ton invested in their offense right now, but can keep getting younger (and cheaper) by bringing in young tackles with high upside.
  11. New York Giants (From Chicago) — Ikem Ekwonu, Offensive Tackle, NC State: The Giants keep getting physical in the trenches with a massive tackle with huge potential.
  12. Washington Football Team — Malik Willis, Quarterback, Liberty: WFT has a pretty solid roster outside of the quarterback and they can afford to take a chance on Malik Willis with his big arm and athleticism.
  13. Arizona Cardinals — Chris Olave, Wide Receiver, Ohio State: The Cardinals have waited long enough to fill out their receiving corps. Chris Olave would be a tremendous deep threat for Kyler Murray.
  14. Pittsburgh Steelers — Desmond Riddler, Quarterback, Cincinnati: The Steelers are another team that is a quarterback away from being a real contender. Desmond Riddler is immensely talented and would benefit quickly from Pittsburgh’s complete roster.
  15. Los Anglesey Chargers — Aiden Hutchinson, Edge, Michigan: The Chargers have a very nice group around Justin Herbert and can move back to upgrading their defense. With Melvin Ingram getting up there in age, they can invest in a talented defender to play opposite Joey Bosa.
  16. Minnesota Vikings — Perrion Winfrey, Defensive Tackle, Oklahoma: The Vikings have lost a lot of talent on their defensive line recently and could improve massively by adding a penetrating defensive tackle.
  17. Tennessee Titans — Kingsley Enagbare, Edge, South Carolina: The Titans have a solid roster and can afford to add high upside defenders. Kingsley Enagbare would be a great fit rushing off the edge in Mike Vrabel’s defense.
  18. Philadelphia Eagles (From Miami) — George Pickens, Wide Receiver, Georgia: The Eagles got their #1 wide receiver in 2021 with DeVonta Smith, but they still need to rill out the rest of their receiving corps. George Pickens is immensely talented and should be healthy by the time of the 2022 draft.
  19. New Orleans Saints — Kaiir Elam, Cornerback, Florida: The Saints need a number two cornerback and Kaiir Elam would be a good fit in that defense.
  20. New England Patriots — Treylon Burns, Wide Receiver, Arkansas: The Patriots desperately need weapons for whoever is starting at quarterback heading into 2022 and beyond.
  21. Philadelphia Eagles (From Indianapolis) — Brenton Cox, Edge, Florida: The Eagles can keep getting younger on defense with an athletic pass rusher who can also play the run.
  22. New York Jets (From Seattle) — Isaiah Spiller, Running Back, Texas A&M: The Jets can add another weapon to their offense with a true number one running back.
  23. Dallas Cowboys — Jordan Battle, Safety, Alabama: The Cowboys are still in the process of refitting their defense. Jordan Battle is an experienced, versatile safety.
  24. Denver Broncos — Kedon Slovis, Quarterback, USC: While an Aaron Rodgers trade could be on the horizon, for now, the Broncos should take a bet on the strong-armed USC passer to take advantage of all the weapons they have on offense.
  25. Green Bay Packers — Garrett Wilson, Wide Receiver, Ohio State: Not sure what the state of the Packers will be in a year, but they will need another outside receiver to have a good offense set up for Jordan Love.
  26. Cleveland Browns — Zach Harrison, Edge, Ohio State: The Browns go local to add another dynamic pass rusher to their loaded defensive line.
  27. Baltimore Ravens — Charles Gross, Offensive Tackle, Mississippi State: Now that Orlando Brown is out of town, the Ravens should look for a long-term replacement at tackle.
  28. Buffalo Bills — Breece Hall, Running Back, Iowa State: The Buffalo Bills already have one of the most complete, dynamic offenses in the NFL. Imagine if they added a true threat at running back.
  29. Miami Dolphins (From San Francisco) — Ventrell Miller, Linebacker, Florida: The Dolphins don’t have many needs, but adding a dynamic linebacker to their defense seems like a great move for a unit that overachieved last year.
  30. Detroit Lions (From Los Angeles Rams) — Sevyn Banks, Cornerback, Ohio State: Sevyn Banks is OSU’s next top defensive back that they’re sending to the NFL and the Lions would be happy to get him playing outside cornerback.
  31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers — Tyler Shough, Quarterback, Texas Tech: The Buccaneers need to think about life after Tom Brady. Tyler Shough is a high upside passer who would be a great fit for Bruce Arians and company.
  32. Kansas City Chiefs — George Karlafitis, Edge, Purdue: Any Andy Reid team is going to always be looking at defensive linemen. George Karlafitis could be an option to upgrade the Chiefs’ pass rush.

They must have really thought Jamie Newman was going to explode at Georgia.  This is interesting because it just proves a point, every year there is a draft riser that nobody has ever heard about at QB and typically, the smart thing to do is avoid that player at all costs.  Lets see if the Jets can break that trend!

Big time FSU fan. 

Made a joke and a post a couple months ago during NCAA season about me forging JD trading for away Jamal Adams if he were to replace him with Nasirildeen. 

That he did. 

During the 6th round just stole a badass kid with 1st round talent. 

Fk the ACL he's recovered and ready to bring that FSU talent to gang green. 

Defensive Steal of the draft.

Doesn't apply as much QB pressure but he can hit as hard as #33, he's just as much the tackling machine as #33 and he's even got a little ball Hawkins ability to his game. 

Under coach Saleh, Nasirildeen will become an All Pro by his 3rd year and will absolutely flourish inside the box/trenches alongside Quinnen. Lawson. And Mosley. 

When JD pulled the trigger on Nasirildeen I almost did a backflip. 

He's going to fully recover from his ACL injury and go down as an all time great late round Jet. 

Kid is one of my top 10 favorite FSU defenders. He's an absolute junkyard dog.

Saleh is going to love him. He'll run through brick walls to show NFL teams he was first round worthy.n

Kinda fun to look back at some of those “way too soon mocks” they put out the day after the draft. 
 

Burrow in the 3rd. Saw Bryce Hall in the first in one. Zuniga in the 2nd. And Becton no where to be found. 
 

Crazy what a year can do.

Great observations.  A guy like Becton wasn’t even on the radar, then gets drafted in the top of the first round and proves he can be a good NFL starter immediately in his rookie year. Amazing.

Hall and Nazirildeen are clearly two guys who had the talent to be taken in the first couple rounds. Injuries are the only reasons they fell so much. Both could turn out to be steals.

JD had a couple of good hits and a few misses at this time. ‘22 rubber hits road. Saleh high energy, all effort. 
Players need to be flying around the Field. Can’t wait for camp. 6 weeks for ZW to digest playbook.

I see our first being 8-10 range.   I see Seattle's pick being top 18 ( I don't think they make the playoffs)

Ok I understand what you meant now.

It was an attempt to be funny (inclusion of the word “muchachko” was supposed to be a signal) but if you have to explain a joke, it wasn’t funny I suppose. Sorry for that.
