2021 NFL Mock Draft: Jets acquire Deshaun Watson, trade Sam Darnold to the NFC

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

1st

POSITION RNK

1st

There is little intrigue surrounding the No. 1 overall selection. Trevor Lawrence to Jacksonville is essentially a done deal and there is little point in considering other options. Although it would be quite entertaining to see Urban Meyer strong arm the selection of an Ohio State quarterback – Justin Fields.

BYU

Projected Team

Houston

PROSPECT RNK

6th

POSITION RNK

3rd

New York acquires Deshaun Watson in exchange for the No. 2 overall selection, the No. 23 overall selection and future compensation. Hypothetically, Houston would have had the No. 3 overall selection if they had never made the Laremy Tunsil trade. Possessing two of the top three picks would have been quite the way to start a rebuild, which is the direction in which it appears the Texans are headed.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 208 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

5th

POSITION RNK

1st

Miami looks to add some stability to the wide receiver room in the form of Ja’Marr Chase. It seems unlikely that the Dolphins would part with Tua Tagovailoa this soon so it is imperative that they work to surround him with the talent necessary to achieve success.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 228 lbs

Projected Team

Atlanta

PROSPECT RNK

4th

POSITION RNK

2nd

The home state hero returns to deliver Atlanta from mediocrity. He could sit for a year behind Matt Ryan but the idea of selecting a franchise quarterback was likely appealing to first year head coach Arthur Smith.

Oregon

• Jr

• 6’6″

/ 330 lbs

Projected Team

Cincinnati

PROSPECT RNK

2nd

POSITION RNK

1st

Cincinnati is the strategist in WarZone waiting as two others duel to the death before swooping in to end the short-lived celebration. The Bengals watch as teams before them jockey to snatch up quarterbacks as they lay in the weeds anxiously awaiting Penei Sewell.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 175 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

8th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Philadelphia is about to undergo wholesale changes to the wide receiver room. Devonta Smith is slight in frame but his game is polished. It would be a surprise if he were a total bust. The Eagles are committed to Carson Wentz and, with Jalen Reagor, Wentz now has a few options to target.

Alabama

• Jr

• 5’10”

/ 182 lbs

Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

9th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Detroit’s wide receiver room could look entirely different next season as the entirety of the current group is scheduled to hit free agency. Jaylen Waddle is a field-stretching presence for veteran Matthew Stafford.

Florida

• Jr

• 6’6″

/ 240 lbs

Projected Team

Carolina

PROSPECT RNK

10th

POSITION RNK

1st

It would take a lot of convincing to believe that Teddy Bridgewater is the future at quarterback. It appears to be their reality in the short-term, however. The Panthers strengthen that offense by picking up one of the draft’s biggest mismatches.

Penn State

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 244 lbs

Projected Team

Denver

PROSPECT RNK

3rd

POSITION RNK

1st

Von Miller’s future in Denver is certainly in question. It would make a lot of sense for the Broncos to draft and plug Micah Parsons between Bradley Chubb and Miller. They may need another edge rusher depending on what happens with Miller though.

Virginia Tech

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 207 lbs

Projected Team

Dallas

PROSPECT RNK

11th

POSITION RNK

1st

Dallas takes the top cornerback off the board to fill a gaping hole left by Byron Jones. Caleb Farley is a big cornerback that should provide a physical presence to a desperate defense.

Michigan

• Sr

• 6’4″

/ 272 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

7th

POSITION RNK

1st

New York needs some edge rush assistance. It is my justification every week for taking the top option and starting him with the team’s elite interior defensive line structure.


Trey Lance


QB

NFL Draft

• Soph

• 6’4″

/ 226 lbs

San Francisco has been non-committal with Jimmy Garoppolo for obvious reasons. My 49ers friends have been scouting the incoming quarterback class for months and it comes to fruition. Trey Lance is still a bit raw but his skill set in Kyle Shanahan’s offense would be exciting.

Virginia Tech

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 314 lbs

Rashawn Slater is a better player but I have questions about him playing left tackle in the NFL. Christian Darrisaw is the next best option at the position and gives Justin Herbert an upgrade in protection.

Northwestern

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 305 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

16th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Rashawn Slater could start anywhere on the offensive line and that flexibility should appeal to a Minnesota group forced to make changes on the fly in 2020.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 203 lbs

Projected Team

New England

PROSPECT RNK

13th

POSITION RNK

2nd

The parting of ways between New England and Stephon Gilmore feels evident. It makes sense for them to bring in another high end player at the position without paying top dollar.

South Carolina

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Arizona

PROSPECT RNK

43rd

POSITION RNK

4th

Arizona secures its likely replacement for veteran Patrick Peterson. Jaycee Horn is a confident, physical player that will serve as another building block to that young infrastructure in Phoenix.

Alabama

• Soph

• 6’5″

/ 310 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

27th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Las Vegas’ defensive line just needs to get better. Maxx Crosby’s production has exceeded expectations but the Raiders lack a player that instills fear in the opposing defense.

Notre Dame

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 215 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

28th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Brian Flores adds another piece to an already overachieving defense. He has proven to be one of the most promising young coaches in the game and players like Jeremiah Owusu-Koromoah will only help the cause.

Texas

• Jr

• 6’7″

/ 309 lbs

Projected Team

Washington

PROSPECT RNK

32nd

POSITION RNK

8th

Washington is still searching for an option at left tackle to replace Trent Williams. Samuel Cosmi is not a flawless player but he does serve as a big upgrade over the incumbent.

USC

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 315 lbs

Projected Team

Chicago

PROSPECT RNK

18th

POSITION RNK

4th

Alijah Vera-Tucker may have earned himself some money proving that he could play left tackle this season but I still believe his future is best served inside. The addition ensures that David Montgomery continues the solid play that he displayed down the stretch.

Miami (FL)

• Soph

• 6’7″

/ 265 lbs

Projected Team

Indianapolis

PROSPECT RNK

14th

POSITION RNK

1st

Indianapolis is obviously in a position to add a quarterback following Philip Rivers’ retirement but the options available at No. 21 overall do not exactly have Chris Ballard rushing to the podium. Instead, they build towards the future and add another young pass rusher.

Georgia

• Fr

• 6’3″

/ 240 lbs

Projected Team

Tennessee

PROSPECT RNK

97th

POSITION RNK

9th

Tennessee desperately tries to address its lack of pass rush with the addition of Azeez Ojulari. Ojulari burst onto the scene this year as Georgia rotated pass rushers in and out.

Oklahoma State

• Sr

• 6’0″

/ 185 lbs

Projected Team

Houston

PROSPECT RNK

62nd

POSITION RNK

8th

Previously, this selection would have been earmarked for Ohio State wide receiver Chris Olave but he elected to return to school. Tylan Wallace plays with great strength and is capable of making plays downfield for Zach Wilson.


Spencer Brown


OL

NFL Draft

• Sr

• 6’9″

/ 321 lbs

Projected Team

Pittsburgh

PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK

Michigan’s Jalen Mayfield would be another candidate for this spot but I believe Spencer Brown’s best playing days are ahead of him. He is an uber-athletic lineman that should have the polish after working out with former 49ers All-Pro Joe Staley for months.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 190 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

33rd

POSITION RNK

3rd

Jacksonville has some other needs at this spot but the value did not meet the need. The Jaguars land the second Clemson Tiger in the first round and pair him with last year’s first-round selection C.J. Henderson.

Miami (FL)

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 266 lbs

Projected Team

Cleveland

PROSPECT RNK

103rd

POSITION RNK

9th

The Browns are drafting No. 26 overall and it is not the result of a trade. Cleveland has some needs on the defensive side of the ball and that is the expectation with the team’s first pick. Jaelan Phillips is a high end player that could learn a lot from Myles Garrett.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 200 lbs

Projected Team

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

65th

POSITION RNK

9th

Baltimore adds a little more size to pair with Marquise Brown, who performed well down the stretch. The Ravens arsenal should be set but now they need to focus on supplementing the walls to the castle.

Texas

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 253 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

34th

POSITION RNK

4th

New York trades Sam Darnold to New Orleans in exchange for a late first-round pick. The Jets might have to send a mid-round pick in return but do not get caught up in the small details. They suddenly have Deshaun Watson in this scenario and Darnold is no longer of need. The Saints are ushering in the post-Drew Brees era and Sean Payton does not want to do that with Jameis Winston. Joe Douglas adds a pass rusher with his newfound pick.

Penn State

• Soph

• 6’5″

/ 253 lbs

Projected Team

Tampa Bay

PROSPECT RNK

75th

POSITION RNK

8th

The rush on rushers continues. Whether price or age is the issue, it would not be unexpected for Tampa Bay to move on from Jason Pierre-Paul or Shaq Barrett. In that event, they need a replacement. Jayson Oweh is the best on the board.

Tulsa

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 260 lbs

Projected Team

Buffalo

PROSPECT RNK

37th

POSITION RNK

5th

Buffalo continues to stock pile talent on defense with the addition of Zaven Collins.

Florida

• Sr

• 6’0″

/ 193 lbs

Projected Team

Green Bay

PROSPECT RNK

119th

POSITION RNK

20th

Green Bay could theoretically win the Super Bowl with just Davante Adams at wide receiver but it is not ideal. The Packers have given time to its other players at the position and it has not worked. It is time to move on and add another reliable weapon.

Ohio State

• Soph

• 6’4″

/ 313 lbs

Projected Team

Kansas City

PROSPECT RNK

15th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Kansas City has not devoted many assets to its INTERIOR (I left that point of context out last time) offensive line in recent years and it is time for that to change with a half billion dollar investment in the backfield.
