POSITION RNK

1st

Could the Bill O’Brien firing start a domino effect for the likes of Adam Gase and Dan Quinn? Either way, Gase is bound to be let go eventually, and the new head coach will be overjoyed to land Lawrence with the first pick.

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

2nd

POSITION RNK

1st

I’ve been staying away from offensive tackle for the Giants in my first few mocks of the season because they did triple up on offensive linemen in the 2020 draft. But Sewell is a rare prospect, and I don’t think Joe Judge will be ready to move on from Daniel Jones after the season.

Ohio State

Projected Team

Washington

PROSPECT RNK

5th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Things aren’t looking good for Dwayne Haskins’ future in Washington. Regardless of its fairness to Haskins, I fully expect the front office to look for a franchise quarterback in the 2021 draft.

LSU

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

3rd

POSITION RNK

1st

In this scenario the Jaguars — at least for one more year — are going to build around Gardner Minshew. If Keelan Cole leaves in free agency, Jacksonville would be in the market for another pass catcher, and a D.J. Chark, Laviska Shenault, Chase trio would be very enticing.

Alabama

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

16th

POSITION RNK

5th

In what looks like a receiver class not as deep as 2020, the Dolphins don’t hesitate to pair Tua Tagovailoa with Waddle, his former teammate at Alabama. Right now, no receiver is playing better.

Ohio State

• Soph

Projected Team

Cincinnati

PROSPECT RNK

11th

POSITION RNK

2nd

The interior of Cincinnati’s offensive line is dreadful, and Davis is the best guard in the class. Easy pickings here for the Bengals.

Alabama

Projected Team

Atlanta

PROSPECT RNK

11th

POSITION RNK

2nd

The Falcons are a mess defensively, and even if (when) Dan Quinn is no longer the coach, the next person calling the shots will likely look to the secondary even after the selection of A.J. Terrell in 2020.

Miami (FL)

• Soph

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

12th

POSITION RNK

1st

Miami’s pass rush has to improve if this rebuild is going to work. The sky is the limit for Rousseau, given his immense length and athletic ability.

Alabama

• Sr

/ 312 lbs

Projected Team

Denver

PROSPECT RNK

41st

POSITION RNK

10th

The Broncos need to upgrade the right tackle spot — left tackle Garett Bolles has actually played well to start the year — and Leatherwood has the size, length, and balance to be an impact starter right away.

Minnesota

• Soph

• 6’2″

/ 210 lbs

Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

46th

POSITION RNK

4th

Given the long-term state of the Lions receiver group — five pass catchers are set to hit free agency — this is a must for Detroit in Round 1.

Syracuse

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 209 lbs

Projected Team

Carolina

PROSPECT RNK

85th

POSITION RNK

7th

It’s early. Let’s go slightly off the radar here with Cisco to the Panthers inside the top 15. Carolina’s defense is young, but there’s a need for a long-term solution at safety given Tre Boston’s age. Cisco gives up some big plays but also creates a ton of them. He has 13 interceptions in 24 games at Syracuse.

Virginia Tech

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 207 lbs

The Chargers have to add some youth to their secondary, and Farley has the skills and physical profile to be a lockdown perimeter corner in the NFL.

Florida

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

Trask is big prospect who plays with a game-manager style. Music to the ears of Jon Gruden.

Oregon

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

25th

POSITION RNK

4th

With Anthony Harris’ contract expiring at the end of this season and Harrison Smith’s age, the Vikings may look to the safety spot early in the 2021 draft. Holland is as polished as they come at the position.


Trey Lance

Who knows what the Bears will do at quarterback this offseason, but they need to search for their future at the position. Lance is phenomenally talented, he just hasn’t played that much football yet.

Penn State

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

POSITION RNK

The Eagles defense has to get faster at linebacker, and Parsons drips athletic talent in the middle of the defense.

Tennessee

Arizona

PROSPECT RNK

23rd

POSITION RNK

3rd

The Cardinals have to get nastier on the interior of their offensive line, and Smith is a bulldozer at guard.

Pittsburgh

Projected Team

Cleveland

PROSPECT RNK

22nd

POSITION RNK

2nd

Jones is a tall specimen at the edge spot, and he’s been very productive to start the season for Pittsburgh. He has a developing pass-rusher arsenal. Perfect youthful complement to Myles Garrett in Cleveland.

Wake Forest

Tennessee

PROSPECT RNK

Basham would provide the Titans much-needed depth at edge after Jadeveon Clowney and Harold Landry.

Florida

New England

PROSPECT RNK

13th

POSITION RNK

1st

Do you think Bill Belichick would let the fact that he drafted two tight ends in 2020 keep him from picking the best tight end in the class in Round 1? No way. Pitts would immediately become Cam Newton’s favorite target.

Washington

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 293 lbs

Projected Team

Dallas

PROSPECT RNK

19th

POSITION RNK

2nd

The Cowboys are getting gashed at epic proportions on defense, and adding another talented disruptor in the middle would be a good idea. Onwuzurike is long, powerful, and has a variety of pass-rushing moves.

Tennessee

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

45th

POSITION RNK

12th

Mays has been a rock on Tennessee’s offensive line during the program’s impressive start. He’d be an immediate upgrade on the inside for the Jaguars.

Ohio State

• Jr

Wade has awesome slot corner skills and will get an opportunity to prove his worth on the outside this season at Ohio State.

Georgia

The Steelers add a lengthy, physical cornerback to their secondary in Campbell, a battled-tested player from the SEC.

Texas

Sterns has been productive at Texas for a while and has an NFL safety frame at 6-foot-1 and over 200 pounds.

Florida State

• Sr

Projected Team

Buffalo

PROSPECT RNK

37th

POSITION RNK

The Bills need a big nickel defender to round out their defense and Nasirildeen plays the safety position like a linebacker. Perfect.

BYU

New Orleans

PROSPECT RNK

60th

POSITION RNK

8th

Who? Get to know Wilson, He’s played as well as any quarterback in the country to begin the season — he’s thrown only 11 incompletions in three games — and is only 21 years old. He’s showcased high-end scrambling ability, a big arm, and good downfield touch. The Saints swing for the fences here.

Clemson

Etienne is a tremendous pass-catching back who runs with insane explosiveness. Get him in this Tampa Bay offense.

Green Bay

PROSPECT RNK

50th

POSITION RNK

12th

Like much of their 2020 draft philosophy, this is a pick with the long-term future in mind. Carman is a colossal human who’s fared better from a balance perspective early this season.

Michigan

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

Paye is a freaky athlete who could play as a defensive end or a stand-up rush linebacker in Baltimore’s system.

Alabama

Smith is slight of frame but glides across the field and has impeccable body control and ball skills.

Miami (FL)

Projected Team

Kansas City

PROSPECT RNK

52nd

POSITION RNK

3rd

More firepower for Kansas City, as Jordan is another ultra-athletic tight end. Given Travis Kelce just turned 31, the Chiefs could look at a tight end early in the 2021 draft.
