The 2020 NFL Draft has just ended, but it is never too early to look ahead. Here is the 2021 NFL Mock Draft April 25.
Note: Draft order is by current Super Bowl odds
1. Jacksonville Jaguars- Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson
If the Jaguars are picking this high next season, Minshew-Mania is likely over. Whoever picks number one will have to take Trevor Lawrence, who has lived up to the hype as one of the best quarterback prospects out of high school in recent memory.
2. Washington Redskins- Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon
The Redskins just traded Trent Williams and need to protect Dwayne Haskins’ blindside. Sewell played so well in 2019 that some are calling him the best tackle prospect in years.
3. Cincinnati Bengals- Walker Little, OT, Stanford
Cincinnati ignored their offensive line for the early part of the 2020 NFL Draft. Little could’ve come out for the 2020 NFL Draft, but decided to go back to school because his stock dropped. With a better 2020 season, Little should be a round one pick.
4. Miami Dolphins- Ja’Marr Chase, WR, LSU
The Dolphins need to give Tua Tagovailoa more weapons if he is to have a successful NFL career. Chase had a great 2019 season and was the best receiver in college football.
5. Carolina Panthers- Sam Cosmi, OT, Texas
While they traded for Russell Okung, the offensive line still needs help. The Panthers focused most of their 2020 Draft on defense, but need to keep clearing holes for Christian McCaffrey and protecting Teddy Bridgewater.
6. New York Jets- Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson
Getting Denzel Mims in the 2020 NFL Draft was nice, but the Jets need to get Sam Darnold more help in order for him to progress. Ross has great athleticism and can make some crazy catches.
7. New York Giants- Gregory Rousseau, EDGE, Miami
The Giants have spent picks now on the offensive side of the ball early in the last three drafts. They need a pass rusher and Rousseau had a fantastic redshirt freshman season in 2019.
8. Detroit Lions- Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State
Assuming that Matt Stafford is still the quarterback, the Lions will need to get an impact linebacker. Micah Parsons is one of the best players in the Big Ten and can do almost anything asked of a linebacker.
9. Las Vegas Raiders- Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State
If the Raiders don’t make the playoffs again, they will likely be looking for a quarterback. Fields is a good athlete, but can also let it rip, showing it over and over for the Buckeyes in 2019.
10. Miami Dolphins (via HOU)- Richard LeCounte, S, Georgia
The Dolphins have a lot of corners, but their secondary really needs better safeties. LeCounte thought about entering the 2020 NFL Draft, but decided to return to school to improve his stock.
11. Arizona Cardinals- Patrick Surtain, CB, Alabama
Kyler Murray has all the help he could want on the offensive side of the ball, but the defense needs to step it up. Surtain can play across from Patrick Peterson and give them another solid corner.
12. Los Angeles Chargers- Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan
The Chargers got their franchise quarterback, but they need to protect him. Mayfield will be one of the few left on the offensive line for Michigan and should stand out in 2020.
13. Denver Broncos- Shaun Wade, CB, Ohio State
The offense was addressed in the 2020 NFL Draft, but the Broncos need some help on defense. Shaun Wade is one of the only experienced players returning to the Ohio State secondary and has a chance to shine.
14. Atlanta Falcons-Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama
Atlanta lost Mohammed Sanu and Austin Hooper in the last several months and can make their offense more dynamic with more receiver help. Waddle is a great returner and has great run after the catch ability.
15. Jacksonville Jaguars (via LAR)- Trey Smith, OT, Tennessee
Smith has played guard and tackle, but would vastly improve the Jaguars’ offensive line for their new superstar quarterback.
16. Cleveland Browns- Devonta Smith, WR, Alabama
The Browns have two great wideouts, but could use a third to really make the offense explosive. WIth Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs in the NFL, Smith has a chance to blossom in 2020.
17. Chicago Bears- Seth Williams, WR, Auburn
Mitch Trubisky needs to improve, but the Bears should add more weapons for him to use. Williams is a big-bodied wide receiver who is hard to match up with.
18. Tennessee Titans- Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson
If a contract extension with Derrick Henry can’t be reached, he will be out the door before the 2021 season. Etienne would’ve been one of the best backs in the 2020 NFL Draft, but chose to go back to school for another year.
19. Pittsburgh Steelers- Najee Harris, RB, Alabama
With a lot of talent gone in Alabama, it is now Harris’ time to shine. James Conner did not play well in 2019, so Harris could be the next great Steelers’ running back.
20. Minnesota Vikings- Paulson Adebo, CB, Stanford
Adebo is another prospect who could’ve left for the 2020 NFL Draft, but returned to school. His lankiness will make him coveted and the Vikings still need to get more corners even after drafting Jeff Gladney in 2020.
21. Indianapolis Colts- Alex Leatherwood, OT/G, Alabama
Leatherwood has moved around the Alabama offensive line and considered coming out for the 2020 NFL Draft. He can help the Colts retain one of the best offensive lines in football.
22. Buffalo Bills- Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama
The Bills need to get another linebacker outside of Tremaine Edmunds. Moses is athletically gifted, but he missed the 2019 season with an injury.
23. Green Bay Packers- Tamorrion Terry, WR, Florida State
At some point, the Packers will get weapons to help Aaron Rodgers win a Super Bowl. Terry generates big plays at Florida State and will be one of the best in college football in 2020.
24. Dallas Cowboys- Quincy Roche, EDGE, Miami
The Cowboys need to find an edge rusher to go across from DeMarcus Lawrence. Roche is a Temple transfer who has 26 sacks in his career.
25. Seattle Seahawks- Cade Mays, OT, Tennessee
Seattle has to protect Russell Wilson better for his career to go on for a long period of time.
26. New England Patriots- Jamie Newman, QB, Georgia
New England still needs to find the player to fill in for Tom Brady. Newman is athletic and has a strong arm, which were on display at Wake Forest before he transferred to Georgia.
27. Philadelphia Eagles- Chazz Surratt, LB, North Carolina
Surratt had a great season after moving to linebacker from quarterback. The Eagles need to get faster linebackers to help them cover better.
28. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Chuba Hubbard, RB, Oklahoma State
The Buccaneers need Ronald Jones or Ke’Shawn Vaugh to step up at running back in 2020. If they don’t Hubbard is a very good runner in between the tackles.
29. New Orleans Saints-LaBryan Ray, DL, Alabama
New Orleans doesn’t have too many needs, but can improve on the interior of the defensive line. Ray can be the next great Alabama defensive lineman.
30. San Francisco 49ers- Israel Mukuamu, CB, South Carolina
San Francisco needs some help across from Richard Sherman to help make their defense more dominant.
31. Baltimore Ravens- Marvin Wilson, DL, Florida State
Getting another good defensive lineman for their front is always a good thing. Wilson surprised many when he chose to go back to Florida State for another year.
32. Kansas City Chiefs- Creed Humphrey, OG/C, Oklahoma
Humphrey was a projected first or second-round pick in 2020 and could give the Chiefs a more solid interior.
