Over the last few months I’ve learned several things about social media. First and foremost it’s toxic! Second, people really like to look ahead. Third, crazier the comment then higher the likes.
In the spirit of social media toxicity what better way to join the party then with an early 2021 mock draft!
Ben is one of our resident college football fans and writers. He loves NFL mock drafts so who am I to stop him?
#1 New York Jets Gregory Rousseau DE
Now let me be extremely clear here, I DO NOT think the New York Jets take Rousseau at number one overall! However, I do think they’ll trade down and grab him there.
Player comparison. Jason Pierre- Paul
#2 Jaguars Trevor Lawrence QB
Welcome Sunshine to the Sunshine State.
Player comparison. Andrew Luck
#3 Washington Justin Fields QB
River-Boat Ron gets his next Cam Newton.
Player comparison. Dak Prescott
#4 Cowboys Patrick Surtain II CB
No matter who the coach is next season in Dallas they HAVE to address their weak defense.
Player comparison. Byron Jones
#5 Chargers Penei Sewell OT
Getting some help to protect there franchise QB.
Player comparison. Taylor Lewan
#6 Dolphins Micah Parsons LB
Miami’s defense is playing better every week so let’s get them a play maker on defense!
Player comparison. KJ Wright
#7 Bengals Caleb Farley CB
Cincinnati got their Franchise QB last year and can absolutely score with the best of them. However, their defense is a total mess and adding a lock down corner is a step in the right direction.
Player comparison. Jimmy Smith
#8 Giants Kwity Paye DE
New York has played themselves out of a top-5 pick with their offense playing solid football despite losing Saquan Barkley so early. With that said they struggle getting pressure on the opposing offense.
Player comparison. Cameron Jordan
#9 Panthers Jaycee Horn CB
In a division where you have Pro Bowl receivers on every team, time to look at someone who can keep them in check.
Player comparison. Marlon Humphrey
#10 Falcons Trey Lance QB
With the future of Matt Ryan in the air, Atlanta needs to start to thinking about an era without Ryan.
Player comparison. Colin Kaepernick
#11 Broncos Samuel Cosmi OT
Denver’s offense is taking steps in the right direction but it’s the offensive line. It’s killing Drew Lock.
Player comparison. Jack Conklin
#12 San Francisco 49ers Zach Wilson QB
San Francisco is in a perfect position this draft. They don’t have a lot of needs coming off a Super Bowl appearance last season but the injury bug has hit them hard.
Player comparison. Baker Mayfield
#13 Lions JaMarr Chase WR
With Kenny Golladay entering a walk year and Marvin Jones hitting the over 30 meter, Matt Stafford may need a new favorite target.
Player comparison. Victor Cruz
#14 Vikings Wyatt Davis IOL
Player comparison. David DeCastro
#15 Patriots DeVonta Smith WR
Future QB of the most hated team in football needs someone to throw to.
Player comparison. Marvin Harrison

If Matt Nagy can some how stick around he needs a new QB.

The Cardinals are a force to reckon with Kyler Murray! His Hail Murray’s are fantastic but they can’t guard at all in the secondary.
Player comparison. Xavier Rhodes
#21 Jets Jaylen Waddle WR
Get Sam some help people!
Player comparison. Santana Moss
#22 Dolphins Creed Humphrey OL
Tua is looking like the real deal but his offensive line definitely needs work.

#23 Colts Jalen Mayfield OT
Not a sexy pick at all but the Colts tradition of a great offensive will continue.
Player comparison. Joe Thomas
#24 Ravens Trevon Moehrig S
Player comparison. Minkah Fitzpatrick

Vegas needs to address their defensive line and run defense what better way then an All ACC DT.

The Alabama prospect has turned in a very nice year after coming back to school for his senior season.

An aging Steelers offensive line that needs to do a better job at keeping Big Ben upright
Player comparison. Taylor Decker
