Final NFL Mock Draft (With Trades!)
1. Jacksonville Jaguars Select-Trevor Lawrence-QB-Clemson University
Trevor Lawrence is the best overall player in this draft even after his recent sparked up a media frenzy about how he doesn't need football and he doesn't have a chip on his shoulder. It would be hard to have a chip on your shoulder if you have been winning as much as he has in his football career and once he's humbled by the NFL, his chip will develop just like it did for Peyton Manning, John Elway, and any other quarterback with his level of talent. And with Urban Meyer as his coach, I expect great things from Duval County for the next decade.
2. New York Jets Select-Zach Wilson-QB-Brigham Young University
I think the Jets are crazy for picking Zach Wilson here at #2 in the draft but that has been the report for over two months with the organization that they love his ability. I think Zach Wilson has the most bust potential of the quarterbacks and that's before he gets selected by an organization that chews up and spits out quarterbacks like cinnamon gum. If Robert Saleh can surround him with talent in New York he could be a special talent with his arm but that remains to be seen with this organization's troublesome history of building a team.
3. San Francisco 49ers (Via Dolphins) select-Trey Lance-QB-North Dakota State University
I think San Francisco would be making a huge mistake if they traded up to grab Mac Jones and I can't in good conscience believe that Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch traded all the way to #3 to pick a quarterback that offers a low ceiling, an unspectacular skillset, and has faced little adversity as Alabama's quarterback. Trey Lance is a far better athlete, arm talent, decision maker, and playmaker and would give the 49ers one of the most potent offenses in the NFC.
4. Denver Broncos (Via Falcons) Select-Justin Fields-QB-Ohio State University
The 49ers shock the NFL world by not taking Mac Jones after all the rumors throughout the offseason and with Denver's interest in both Fields and Lance, they trade up in the draft to make sure that they get one of one them. Justin Fields is a phenomenal athlete at the quarterback position and helped lead Ohio State to two memorable CFB playoff runs in which he showed out. He will transform Denver's offense and make them a competitive force in the AFC.
5. Cincinnati BengaLS Select-Penei Sewell-OT-University of Oregon
The selection of Ja'Marr Chase would be an epic move here with his elite level playmaking ability and athleticism plus his familiarity with his former quarterback in Joe Burrow but once Burrow went down with his gruesome injury a stellar left tackle vaulted to the top of their list. Penei Sewell is going to be a perennial pro bowler at left tackle for the Bengals and will help Joe Burrow develop far more than Chase could.
6. Miami Dolphins (Via Eagles) Select-Kyle PItts-TE-University of Florida
The Dolphins need a play-making wide receiver for Tua Tagovailoa to throw to and luckily for them the most physically gifted offensive weapon in the draft falls right into their lap in Kyle Pitts. Now he's categorized as a tight end but he brings so much more to the table as an overall prospect than any tight end ever could. He can play wide receiver better than any in this draft outside of Chase and offers Miami the ability to create mismatches all over the field.
7. Detroit Lions Select-Ja'Marr Chase-WR-Louisiana State University
The Lions need to give Jared Goff an elite level receiving target in order to even have a chance in the NFC North and Ja'marr Chase is a surefire perennial pro bowler at the receiver position. He'll give the Lions a potent offense at all three levels of the field and will be Goff's #1 target on Day 1.
8. Carolina Panthers select-Rashawn Slater-OT-Northwestern University
The Panthers stayed put in this draft and grabbed one of the most versatile offensive lineman in the draft in Rashawn Slater. Slater can play guard or tackle at an elite level and will give quarterback Sam Darnold a very comfortable pocket either in the middle or one the outside and we can finally see what Sam Darnold has when he's not getting mauled by defenders.
9. Atlanta Falcons (Via Broncos) Select-Micah Parsons-LB-Penn State University
The Atlanta Falcons get a great draft haul for the #4 overall pick and still remain in the Top 10 and thus grab one of the best defenders in the draft in Parsons. Parsons is a freak athlete that immediately makes their pass rush far more potent and makes their run defense one of the best in the NFL with his ability to attack the line of scrimmage.
10. Dallas Cowboys Select-Patrick Surtain II-CB-University of Alabama
Out of all the draft picks in the top 10 none have been more consistent than this one with the Dallas Cowboys taking the best cornerback in the draft. Surtain II has the highest floor among defenders in this draft and will become a perennial pro bowler as an outside cornerback.
11. New England Patriots (Via Giants) Select-Mac Jones-QB-University of ALabama
The New England Patriots trade up in the draft as interest in Mac Jones starts to fire up. Selecting Mac Jones gives Belichick more years as a head coach in New England. Mac Jones has great accuracy and touch on his throws and will be going to a revamped offense with talented tight ends and a much improved receiving corps, something every rookie quarterback needs.
12. Philadelphia Eagles (Via Dolphins) Select-Devonta Smith-WR-University of ALabama
The Eagles desperately need a playmaker wide receiver and Devonta Smith showed in 2020 that he can be just that. The Heisman winner falls because of his weight but make no mistake, he's the best route-runner in the draft and has incredible hands. He will give Jalen Hurts a #1 target on Day 1 and should make fools out of cornerbacks that can't match up with his quickness.
13. Los Angeles Chargers Select-Christian Darrisaw-OT-Virginia Tech University
The Los Angeles Chargers have their star quarterback Justin Herbert and will need to find him some protection to further his development. Christian Darrisaw was a dominant presence for Virginia Tech and has the size and athleticism to hold down the edge for a decade.
14. Minnesota Vikings Select-Gregory Rousseau-Edge-University of Miami
The Vikings need to give Danielle Hunter another pass rusher on the other side of the line and Gregory Rousseau is the perfect player to take on the role. He's a great athlete that brings rare size and length to the position and with Aaron Rodgers in the division, getting more pass rush on the team is a must.
15. New York Giants Select-Jaylen Waddle-WR-University of ALabama
The New York Giants trade down and grab the last great receiver prospect in the draft in Jaylen Waddle. Waddle would probably have been a top 10 selection in this draft if not for an ankle injury that cost him a majority of the season. He's a speed demon as a receiver and is one of the most dangerous receivers in the draft and he will make a huge impact on special teams as well.
16. Arizona Cardinals Select-Jaycee Horn-CB-University of South Carolina
The Arizona Cardinals get a steal in the draft in Jaycee Horn as needs are drafted over value. Jaycee Horn comes in and replaces all-time great cornerback Patrick Peterson with his exceptional athleticism, aggressive style of play, and competitive fire. He'll develop into a lockdown cornerback in the pros and has the potential to be a pro bowler within his rookie deal.
17. Las Vegas Raiders Select-Alijah Vera-Tucker-G/T-University of Southern California
The Las Vegas Raiders have traded away and released most of their offensive line this offseason but they cannot go into the season without fresh talent. Alijah Vera-Tucker is easily the best interior player in this draft and showed in 2020 that he can play outside as well. He would give the Raiders a great cornerstone on their line and give Derek Carr protection in the middle.
18. Miami Dolphins Select-Kwity Paye-EDGE-University of Michigan
The Dolphins need pass rush help on the edge and Kwity Paye is the answer on Day 1. He's a freak athlete that's just scratching his potential as an every down pass rusher and teaming him up with Miami's formidable defensive line will bring out his pro bowl potential.
19. Washington Football Team Selects-Zaven Collins-LB-University of Tulsa
The Redskins missed out on the quarterbacks in this draft and will look to improve the other side of the ball. Zaven Collins is a monstrous linebacker that would solidify Washington's defense as the best in the NFC and would put them on a contending path next season.
20. Chicago Bears Select-Alex Leatherwood-OT-University of Alabama
The Chicago Bears need to get an upgrade at offensive tackle and Alex Leatherwood is the perfect player hear at #20. He's a mauler in the run game with the exceptional athleticism to develop into an effective pass protector. He'll help turn Chicago's run game into a force in the NFC North and will boost the Bears pass protection with added experience.
21. Indianapolis Colts Select-Jaylen Mayfield-OT-University of Michigan
The Colts offense is bordering on elite and getting Jaylen Mayfield would put them over the edge. He would solidify the Colts offensive line as the best in the NFL and would give Carson Wentz the protection and security he lacked in Philadelphia in 2020. He should develop into a quality offensive tackle playing next to Quenton Nelson
22. Tennessee Titans Select-Caleb Farley-CB-Virginia Tech University
Caleb Farley has been regarded as the best cornerback in this draft by many analysts but due to a back procedure before his pro day and a lengthy injury history before that he falls in the draft to the Titans. He would immediately improve the Titans secondary and if he can stay healthy, he could develop into a pro bowl player early in his career.
23. New York Jets (Via Seahawks) Select-Rondale Moore-WR-Purdue University
The New York Jets grabbed their guy in Zack Wilson and now they have to get him a receiver to throw to and Rondale Moore is a great fit. He's the closest player to Tyreek Hill to come out of college and Zach Wilson will benefit from having Moore burning corners deep in the NFL.
24. Pittsburgh Steelers Select-Creed Humphrey-C-University of Oklahoma
Pittsburgh lost a HOF center in Maurkice Pouncey this offseason to retirement and filling the hole left behind will need to be a priority over anything else. Creed Humphrey has done nothing but prove that he's easily the best center in this draft with his athleticism and production and will give the Steelers the dominant interior presence they had with Pouncey in his prime.
25. Jacksonville Jaguars (Via Rams) Select-Samuel Cosmi-OT-University of Texas
The Jaguars picked their franchise player in Trevor Lawrence and now they have to protect their investment. Samuel Cosmi is an elite athlete at offensive tackle who dominated in 2020 for the Longhorns. He's a little raw as a prospect but has phenomenal potential to develop into a bookend tackle in the pros.
26. Cleveland Browns Select-Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah-LB-University of Notre Dame
The Cleveland Browns front seven is great but lacking a great linebacker presence that could solidify their defense in the AFC. Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah made the Notre Dame defense one of the best in the SEC. He's a bit undersized at linebacker but he's a freak athlete that can cause turnovers.
27. Baltimore Ravens Select-Jaelen Phillips-EDGE-University of Miami
Jaelan Phillips showed at his pro day that he's every bit the athlete that made him such a highly touted recruit coming out of high school and his 2020 season showed that he can dominate pro level competition. But injury concerns involving concussions caused him to fall to the Ravens. He's a perfect fit for their defense and could develop into a pro bowl player within his rookie contract.
28. New Orleans Saints Select-Christian Barmore-DT-University of Alabama
The New Orleans Saints seeing most of the best players for them come off the board go after the best player available in Christian Barmore. He's a raw prospect but he's a phenomenal athlete and was easily the best defensive lineman in the country in 2020 that helped lead the Alabama defense to a title run.
29. Green Bay Packers Select-Amon-Ra St. Brown-WR-University of Southern California
The Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers have been at each other's throat for the last couple seasons, but drafting a receiver for Aaron would be a great olive branch. Amon-Ra St. Brown lit the PAC-12 on fire in 2019 and 2020 and would give Aaron another option outside of Davante Adams and could help push them over the top in the NFC.
30. Buffalo Bills Select-Travis Etienne-RB-Clemson University
The Buffalo Bills best rusher is quarterback Josh Allen and that cannot continue if they wish to prolong his career. Travis Etienne is the greatest running back in Clemson history and one of the best all around running back prospects in this draft. He had more carries than most NFL teams may want in a running back but he will immediately change life in Buffalo and will prolong Allen's career.
31. Baltimore Ravens (via Chiefs) Select-Liam Eichenberg-OT-University of Notre Dame
The Kansas Chiefs moved this pick just before heading into the draft for Baltimore’s Orlando Brown, a trade now puts Kansas City firmly in the driver seat for the AFC representative in the 2021 Super Bowl. And now Baltimore has created a need for themselves on the offensive line and Liam Eichenburg is the perfect pick here. He's a powerful offensive tackle that will make an impact as a run blocker for the Ravens and he gets to play next to another former Fighting Irish lineman in Ronnie Stanley.
32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Select-Talanoa Hufanga-S/LB-University of Southern California
The Bucs don't appear to have a weakness on the roster outside of depth and Talanoa Hufanga does have a need at both safety and linebacker. He's an incredibly smart and tough defender and brings a rare level of versatility to the Bucs defense that could use him anywhere.
33. Jacksonville Jaguars Select-Pat Freiermuth-TE-Ohio State University
Trevor Lawrence needs a safety valve at tight end and Pat Freiermuth is easily the safest pick here to kick off Day 2. He's a great receiver and an even better blocker and would make Trevor Lawrence's life in Jacksonville.
34. New York Jets Select-Najee Harris-RB-University of Alabama
The Jets get a steal in the 2nd with Najee Harris who is a physical specimen at the running back position. He will help Zach Wilson's development as both a bell cow back and a safety valve target when things break down on the play.
35. Atlanta Falcons Select-Javonte Williams-RB-North Carolina University
Atlanta let go of Todd Gurley II and haven't replaced him in free agency which means they are looking towards the draft to fill the role. Javonte Williams was a dominant player for the Tar Heels and will thrive in Atlanta's offense as he will face weak defensive boxes and have open looks as a receiver out of the backfield and could Atlanta's offense find more consistency.
36. Miami Dolphins (Via Texans) Select-Nick Bolton-LB-University of Missouri
The Dolphins need defensive help in the linebacking corps and Nick Bolton is the perfect player in the 2nd round. Bolton is a tough and athletic linebacker that is going to deliver big hits and improve their run defense tremendously. He's a huge upgrade in the linebacking corps and a great pick to kick off their Day 2.
37. Philadelphia Eagles Select-Trevon Moehrig-Woodard-S-Texas Christian University
The Eagles, lacking a receiver on the board, grab the best pure safety in the draft in Trevon Moehrig-Woodard. He possesses a well balanced skill set and is a plug-n-play safety for the Eagles.
38. Cincinnati Bengals Select-Brevin Jordan-TE-University of Miami
The Bengals passed on Ja'Marr Chase but made it up to fans by grabbing Miami's Brevin Jordan. He's a great athlete and was a phenomenal playmaker for the Canes and will bring the same level of ability to Joe Burrow and company.
39. Carolina Panthers Select-Jevon Holland-S-University of Oregon
The Bengals passed on Ja'Marr Chase but made it up to fans by grabbing Miami's Brevin Jordan. He's a great athlete and was a phenomenal playmaker for the Canes and will bring the same level of ability to Joe Burrow and company.
40. Atlanta Falcons (Via Broncos) Select-Carlos Basham II-Edge-Wake Forest University
The Falcons grabbed Micah Parsons in the 1st round with Denver's pick and now they double dip on defense to improve their pass rush by grabbing Carlos Basham II to kick off their Day 2 draft. Boogie Basham II is a versatile defensive lineman with experience playing inside and outside the defensive with snaps even as an outside linebacker which is going to allow him to contribute in all over their defense.
41. Detroit Lions Select-Kadarius Toney-WR-University of Florida
The Detroit Lions can't march Jared Goff out on the field without a receiver to throw to and Kadarius Toney is a great fit for them. He's a fast and shifty receiver that had a knack for making plays and should be an easy choice here in the 2nd.
42. New York Giants Select-Quincy rOCHE-eDGE-uNIVERSITY OF mIAMI
The New York Giants need to find an effective edge rusher and Quincy Roche perfectly fits their defense. He's a great athlete and a seasoned pass rush technician coming out of college. He will make an impact on their pass rush his rookie year.
43. San Francisco 49ers Select-Eric Stokes-CB-University of Georgia
Richard Sherman became a free agent this offseason and the Niners need to address the position in the draft. Eric Stokes is a freak athlete at the corner position who showed at Georgia his potential as a productive outside corner covering against SEC receivers.
44. Dallas Cowboys Select-Daviyon NIxon-DT-University of Iowa
The Dallas Cowboys continue to improve a defense that performed poorly in 2020. Daviyon Nixon was easily the best defensive lineman in the BIG-10 and solidified his status as an early Day 2 player with a stellar pro day. He starts game one for the Cowboys and has the potential to develop into a quality player early in his career.
45. Jacksonville Jaguars (Via Vikings) Select-JAy Tufele-DT-University of Southern California
The Jaguars interior defensive line was bad in 2020 and adding talent to the interior should be a priority in Day 2. Jay Tufele was a dominant presence in the PAC-12 and should make an early impact on defense in Jacksonville.
46. New England Patriots Select-Terrace MarshalL II-WR-Louisiana State University
The New England Patriots need to get more receiver talent even with their spending spree in free agency. Terrace Marshall Jr. was a major red zone threat at LSU and showed phenomenal athletic ability at his pro day that checks out on tape. He has the potential to end the receiver drought the Patriots have had and should develop into a quality player in the pros.
47. Los Angeles Chargers Select-Paulson Adebo-CB-Stanford University
The Chargers defense has a lethal pass rush and getting turnover happy cornerback will make this defense a formidable one in 2021. Paulson Adebo has easily the best ball skills in college football at the cornerback position and will make an early impact his rookie year by plucking errand throws caused by Joey Bosa.
48. Las Vegas Raiders Select-Jabril Cox-LB-Louisiana State University
The Raiders need help at linebacker and need to improve their pass defense and Jabril Cox fills both needs for them. He's one of, if not the, best coverage linebacker in the draft and will make the Raiders pass defense much improved for 2021.
49. Arizona Cardinals Select-Greg Newsome II-CB-University of Washington
The Arizona Cardinals let go of Patrick Peterson in the off season and will need to find his replacement fast for 2021. Greg Newsome II is a great athlete and showed himself to be a reliable corner during his time at Northwestern. He will be a productive rookie in 2021 with the Arizona Cardinals improved pass rush.
50. Miami Dolphins Select-Dillon Radunz-OT-North Dakota State University
The Dolphins offensive line is missing one more piece in order to become formidable on the offensive line. Dillon Radunz has been the best offensive lineman in MVFC since he stepped onto the football field and would be a great addition to the Dolphins offensive lineman.
51. Washington Redskins Select-ASante Samuel II-CB-Florida State University
The Washington Redskins need an aggressive ball hawking cornerback and Asante Samuel II would fit perfectly. Combined with Washington's stout front seven, Asante Samuel II's go up and get it style of play will immediately mesh with the Redskins defense.
52. Chicago Bears Select-Azeez Ojulari-Edge-University of Georgia
The addition of Robert Quinn proved to be less than ideal for the Bears defense and adding a pass rusher to supplant him is a big priority. Azeez Ojulari, while somewhat undersized for the position, showed immense potential as a pass rusher at Georgia and should fit very well into the Bears defense.
53. Tennessee Titans Select-Levi Onwuzurike-DT-University of Washington
The Tennessee Titans still have a developing defensive line and adding another talented player to the interior of the defense is a priority. Levi Onwuzurike is a highly athletic defensive lineman that showed a lot of potential to wreak havoc in the backfield by himself and having him lineup next to Autry and Simmons could prove fruitful for all 3 players.
54. Indianapolis Colts Select-Joseph Ossai-EDGE-University of Texas
The Indianapolis Colts needed an edge rusher to create pressure off the edge and Ossai did exactly that for the Longhorns. He's an exceptional athlete that can play every linebacker position on the field and should start Week 1 for the Colts.
55. Pittsburgh Steelers Select-Wyatt Davis-G-Ohio State University
The Steelers continue their offensive line rebuild by grabbing Wyatt Davis from Ohio State. His presence was felt when he went down with injury in the title game and he fell to the Steelers because of it. He will start immediately and should instantly improve the teams lacking run game.
56. Seattle Seahawks Select-Milton Williams-DT-Louisiana Tech University
The Seahawks let Jarran Reed go this off season and will need to fill the hole he left behind and Milton Williams is a good option to do just that. He's a freak athlete but a raw prospect but should eventually develop into at least a quality player in his rookie contract.
57. Los Angeles Rams select-Andre Cisco-S-Syracuse University
John Johnson left in free agency and getting another ball hawking safety is key for their defensive success. Andre Cisco would have been a Day 1 selection if he didn't suffer season-ending injury early in the 2020 season and the Rams will reap the rewards of his fall.
58. Kansas City Chiefs (Via Ravens) Select-Elijah Moore-WR-Ole Miss University
Kansas City let go of Sammy Watkins this offseason and while receiver isn't a huge need having Elijah Moore here in the 2nd round is too good to pass up for them. Moore is an electric speedster at receiver that has quickness and hands that will create mismatches in the slot as well as on the outside.
59. Cleveland Browns Select-Tyler Shelvin-DT-Louisiana State University
The Cleveland Browns lost Larry Ogunjobi in the offseason and their interior defensive line is getting older and less productive. Tyler Shelvin is the best run stuffing tackle in this draft and will eat up blocks for his fellow pass rushers while instantly improving the team's run defense.
60. New Orleans Saints Select-Payton Turner-EDGE-University of Houston
The Saints need to continue improving their pass rush and prepare for life with Cam Jordan who's going to be 32 in July. Payton Turner is a phenomenal athlete that plays with a lot of aggression and he has the same build as Jordan. He can play inside and outside for the Saints and could develop into a quality rusher behind Jordan.
61. Buffalo Bills Select-Israel Mukuamu-Cb-University of South Carolina
The Bills need an outside cornerback that can press NFL receivers out of the gate and Israel Mukuamu is a great fit. He's 6'4" corner with rare length for the position and should find early success in the NFL against the bigger receivers in the NFL.
62. Green Bay Packers Select-Dylan Moses-LB-University of Alabama
The Green Bay Packers didn't replace Blake Martinez in 2020 and with Dylan Moses on the board the Packers must pull the trigger. He's still coming back from injury and his potential once he's back to full speed is immense with his athleticism and toughness and should fit right in on the Packer defense.
63. Kansas City Chiefs Select-Trey SMith-G-University of Tennessee
The Chiefs continue their offensive line rebuild Trey Smith who has dominated at guard for the Vols for the last two seasons. He has the potential to start early and develop into a quality lineman early in his rookie year.
64. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Select-Joe Tryon-EDGE-University of Washington
The Buccaneers may have re-signed the pass rushers but getting quality depth is a major need for them in the draft. Joe Tryon is a powerful pass rusher from Washington that gets to develop behind Shaq Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul who have a similar skill set. He'll be a very good rotational player in his rookie year and will be a shoe-in to replace JPP when he eventually retires.
65. Jacksonville Jaguars Select-Ben Cleveland-G-University of Georgia
Jacksonville needs protection in the offensive line with Trevor Lawrence now at quarterback and Ben Cleveland is the perfect fit for Jacksonville. He's a mammoth of a human being with freakish athleticism and strength and should carve out an early role in the Jacksonville interior and will likely get a starting job before midseason.
66. New York Jets Select-Chazz Surratt-LB-North Carolina University
The New York Jets need to turn towards their defense at some point as they also lacked on the defensive side as well. Chazz Surrat is a huge steal here in the 3rd round and is a do-it-all linebacker for the Jets. He's raw but his potential as a blitzer is tremendous and should be a plug-n-play player in the Jets linebacking corps.
67. Houston Texans Select-Richie Grant-S-University of Central Florida
The Houston Texans finally have a pick in the 2021 draft and they have issues all over that football team so they go after the best defender available in Richie Grant. He's a ball hawking safety that made Central Florida's defense very formidable in 2020 and will boost the turnover production for the Texans early in his career.
68. Atlanta Falcons Select-Ifeatu Melifonwu-CB-Syracuse University
Atlanta needs cornerback depth in their secondary and Ifeatu Melifonwu is the perfect selection here in the 3rd round. Melifonwu is a very big cornerback that brings excellent athleticism. He has the talent to be a reliable starter in the secondary early in his career and a higher ceiling than most cornerbacks this late in the draft.
69. Cincinnati BengaLS Select-Jamin Davis-LB-Univeristy of Kentucky
The Bengals defense needs some more help at the linebacker position and Jamin Davis fills that void for them. He's raw but freakishly athletic and has the potential to develop into a quality player with more reps at the position.
70. Philadelphia Eagles Select-Tyson Campbell-CB-University of Georgia
The Eagles grabbed Trevon Moehrig-Woodard to solidify the safety position and now they grab one of the most athletic corners in the draft. Tyson Campbell is a very tall cornerback that thrived in press coverage and has the potential to develop into a very reliable cornerback in Philadelphia's defense.
71. Atlanta Falcons (Via Broncos) Select-Teven Jenkins-OT-Oklahoma State University
The Falcons have been investing draft picks in their offensive line for the last few years and still don't have answers to their unit and grabbing quality depth for the line in Teven Jenkins is a perfect pick in the 3rd round. He's big and bruising run blocker and is and play lineman to help Atlanta's run game.
72. Detroit Lions Select-Jamar Johnson-S-University of Indiana
The Lions go for defensive secondary help by selecting Jamar Johnson. Johnson is an athletic safety with a high football IQ and shouldn't find himself competing very long for the starting job in Detroit.
73. Carolina Panthers Select-Baron Browning-LB-Ohio State University
The Panthers get linebacker depth to try and fill the hole left behind by Luke Kuechly. Baron Browning is an athletic thumper who will make an early impact as a blitzer.
74. Washington Football Team (Via 49ers) Select-Shaun Wade-CB-Ohio State University
Washington continues to rebuild the secondary with Tyson Campbell. He brings excellent size and athleticism but is a raw prospect. With time and reps however, he could develop into a starter within his rookie contract.
75. Dallas Cowboys Select-Josh Myers-C-Ohio State University
The Dallas Cowboys need to address the interior of the offensive line and grabbing Josh Myers is a great pick in the 3rd. He can play center or guard and should be competing for a starting job midseason.
76. New York Giants Select-Hamilcar Rashed II-EDGE-Oregon State University
The Giants doubled down on their pass rush in Day by grabbing a value pick in Hamilcar Rashed II. He's an explosive pass rusher that brings great speed and length to the position and could be a starter week one for Giants.
Patriots pick is forfeited
77. Los Angeles Chargers Select-Trey Sermon-RB-Ohio State University
The Chargers need to find a reliable running back to take the pressure off of Justin Herbert. Trey Sermon was a dominant presence for Ohio State with his size and speed and will be a great change of pace for an offense that lacks a powerful running back.
78. Minnesota Vikings Select-Sadarius Hutcherson-G-University of South Carolina
The Vikings need to continue their offensive line rebuild and Sadarius Hutcherson fits what they're trying to do in Minnesota. He's an athletic guard that plays with aggression and should find a starting spot midseason for the Vikings.
80. Las Vegas Raiders (Via Cardinals) Select-Jaylen Twyman-DT-University of Pittsburgh
The Raiders could use another addition of talent into the defensive interior and Jaylen Twyman would be a great fit in Las Vegas. He's a powerful interior rusher that has the potential to boost the Raiders interior pass rush and should fit nicely into their rotation.
81. Las Vegas Raiders Select-David Moore-C-Grambling State University
The Raiders continue their offensive line rebuild by adding one of the most athletic and aggressive centers in the draft. He's one of the few players in the 3rd round that can come into Raiders offensive line and start immediately and could develop into a reliable player early in his career.
82. Miami Dolphins Select-Bobby Brown III-DT-Texas A&M University
The Dolphins continue to add to their defense by grabbing Bobby Brown III. He's a big defensive tackle that flashes great athleticism and toughness and should make an impact on the defensive line early as a run stuffer.
83. Washington Football Team Select-Rashod Bateman-WR-University of Minnesota
Washington has to grab a receiver in this draft Rashod Bateman is the best one available. He has good hands and was very productive for the Golden Gophers. He will battle for a starting spot in the wide receiver corps and should find his way into 3rd recover spot in Washington
84. Chicago Bears Select-Tylan Wallace-WR-Oklahoma State University
The Chicago Bears grabbed a speedy receiver in Tylann Wallace who was an exceptional playmaker for Oklahoma State. He gives the Bears quality depth and will likely find his way into a starting role within his first couple years.
85. Philadelphia Eagles (Via Colts)-Aaron Banks-G-University of Notre Dame
The Eagles offensive line crumbled last season and getting another player for depth is a huge need. Aaron Banks is a powerful guard that will help Jalen Hurts not feel pressure up the middle on passing downs and should find a starting role within his rookie year.
86. Tennessee Titans Select-Paris Ford-S-University of Pittsburgh
The Titans need to grab depth in the secondary and Paris Ford is a great option in the secondary. He's a malicious hitter with good ball skills and could work himself into a starting role within his first few years in the league.
87. New York Jets (Via Seahawks) Select-Paddy Fisher-LB-Northwestern University
The Jets continue rebuilding the linebacking corps with Paddy Fisher. Fisher is a very instinctual player with a knack for causing turnovers. He and Surratt could form a nice linebacker tandem and give them one of the more lethal duos in the AFC East.
88. Pittsburgh Steelers Select-Michael Carter-RB-North Carolina University
Michael Carter played lightning to fellow Tar Heel Javonte Williams thunder and showed that he can turn any play into a house call when he has daylight. He gives the Steelers a very reliable receiving threat out of the backfield and will be a factor in the Steelers running game early.
89. Los Angeles Rams Select-Spencer Brown-OT-University of Northern Iowa
The Los Angeles Rams need to find a replacement for Andrew Whitworth and Spencer Brown in the 3rd is a great option. He's a developmental player but he has an incredibly high ceiling and allowing him to learn behind one of the best could mean a smooth transition.
90. Cleveland Browns Select-Darius sTills-DT-University of West Virginia
The Browns double down in the 3rd on the defensive line by grabbing Darius Stills. He's a highly aggressive run defender with the ability to develop more as a pass rusher and should find a starting role with his first few seasons.
91. Minnesota Vikings (Via Ravens) Select-Marvin Wilson-DT-Florida State University
The Vikings grabbed defensive line help in free agency but getting another player for the rotation is a priority. Marvin Wilson is a big and athletic defensive tackle that will make an impact in run defense.
92. Cleveland Browns (Via Saints) Select-Shakur Brown-CB-Michigan State University
The Browns could use some cornerback depth on their roster and Shakur Brown is a great pick here in the 3rd. He has great ball skills and is competitive and will make a difference early in Cleveland's cornerback rotation.
93. Green Bay Packers Select-Marlon Tuipulotu-DT-University of Southern California
The Packers needed depth in the defensive line with Kenny Clark being the real option in the middle of their defensive line. Marlon Tuipulotu is a big and powerful interior lineman that can eat up blocks, allowing opportunities for linebackers to blitz.
94. Buffalo Bills select-Hunter Long-TE-Boston College
The Bills need to add another tight end to the roster and Hunter Long would certainly help Josh Allen when needing a safety valve. Long is a reliable pass catcher and blocker and will likely win the starting job midseason.
95. Kansas City Selects-Pete Werner-LB-Ohio State University
The Chiefs have to improve their run defense and getting linebacker help will be helpful. Pete Werner is a hard hitting linebacker that loves attacking the line of scrimmage will find himself in the rotation and eventually a starting spot with his rookie deal.
96. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Select-Chuba Hubbard-RB-Oklahoma State University
Tampa Bay needs to get running back depth as Fournette and Ronald Jones are likely to leave in free agency within the next couple years. Hubbard was a force for Oklahoma State during his time there and his style of play makes him a great fit in Tampa's running back rotation.
*97. New York Giants Select-Jaret Patterson-RB-University of Buffalo
The Giants let go of Wayne Gallman after backing up Saqoun Barkley when he went down with his injury and Jaret Patterson would be a great player to replace Gallman. He's a small but electric runner who plays a similar type of style to Barkley as a homerun threat.
*98. Los Angeles Chargers Select-Victor Dimukeje-EDGE-Duke University
The Chargers pass rush could use another player in the rotation and Dimukeje is a great selection. He's a strong edge presence who stouts against the run and should find himself getting playing time early in his rookie year.
*99. New Orleans Saints Select-Kyle Trask-QB-University of Florida
The Saints quarterback situation got very interesting after Drew Brees retired and leaving this draft without at least addressing it would be near criminal. Trask is a big bodied quarterback and that showed a lot of potential at 2020 throwing the ball with good accuracy and touch.
*100. Dallas Cowboys Select-Elerson SMith-EDGE-University of Northern Iowa
The Cowboys need more depth in their pass rush and Elerson Smith would certainly give them that in 2021. He's an athletic defensive end with good arm length and pursuit speed off the edge and should find a starting spot within his 1st two years.
*101. Tennessee Titans Select-Patrick Johnson-Edge-Tulane University
The Titans have been looking for more pass rush for a few seasons now and getting Patrick Johnson in the 3rd would be a great pick. He's been very productive at Tulane and brings good technique to the position and will be a productive rotation player his rookie year.
*102. Detroit Lions (Via Rams) Select-Walker Little-OT-Stanford University
The Detroit Lions need offensive tackle depth and Walker Little is a great fit for them. He's a very smart and instinctual player and will likely find his way into the starting lineup within his rookie year and develop into a reliable lineman in his career.
*103. San Francisco 49ers Select-Hamsah Nasirldeen-S-Florida State University
The 49ers need safety depth and they grab a major steal in the draft in Hamsah Nasirildeen. Nasirldeen is a great athlete and quality safety would have been a top 50 selection if not for an ACL injury. He immediately improves their secondary when healthy and will be a big hitter in the backfield in run defense.
*104. Los Angeles Rams Select-Ronnie Perkins-Edge-UNiversity of Oklahoma
The Rams need to add pass rush depth off the edge and Ronnie Perkins would be excellent added depth. He's athletic and flexible and made his presence felt in the BIG-12 and should be a productive edge rusher playing next to Aaron Donald.
*105. Baltimore Ravens Select-Dazz Newsome-WR-North Carolina University
The Ravens have adamant about adding receiver help and getting Dazz is a good step in that direction. He's a great route-runner and a playmaker who had plenty of production for the Tar Heels. He will challenge for a starting role in Baltimore early and could be a very reliable receiver early in his rookie year.
*106. New Orleans Saints Select-Divine Deablo-LB/S-Virginia Tech University
The Saints need help on defense and Divine Deablo could be a great piece to their defense. He's an exceptional athlete that is very raw but offers potential as a hybrid defender. He's added depth at two positions and could see extended playing time towards the end of the season.
