The 2020 NFL Draft has just ended, but it is never too early to look ahead. Here is the 2021 NFL Mock Draft October 9.
1. New York Giants- Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson
If the Giants are drafting first overall, they have two options. They can start their rebuild by drafting Trevor Lawrence, or they can trade out of this pick and get a haul in return.
2. New York Jets- Trey Lance, QB, North Dakota State
The Jets need to fire Adam Gase, but if they keep him the rest of the year, they will have an early pick. A possible new regime will have to decide between Darnold and a new quarterback.
3. Miami Dolphins (via HOU)- Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon
While they just selected Austin Jackson last season, the Dolphins can really improve their offensive line with the addition of Sewell. Tua Tagovailoa needs to be protected considering his injury history.
4. Atlanta Falcons- Gregory Rousseau, Edge, Miami
The Falcons could rebuild and go with a quarterback, but if they don’t, they should focus on fixing their defense. They can start by getting a good pass rusher.
5. Jacksonville Jaguars- Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State
The Jaguars claim they aren’t tanking, but their roster doesn’t inspire much hope. Even though Gardner Minshew is playing solidly, if they are picking this high, they will likely take their next signal-caller.
6. Washington Football Team- Ja’Marr Chase, WR, LSU
It looks like Washington will be drafting another quarterback after benching Dwayne Haskins. None worth taking are available, so they get a weapon to help whoever the quarterback is next season.
7. Miami Dolphins- Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State
The Dolphins improved a lot of their defense this offseason, but they really need help at linebacker. Parsons is a playmaker, who can do a little bit of everything on the offensive side of the ball.
8. Denver Broncos- Marvin Wilson, DT, Florida State
One of the most banged up teams in the league this season is the Broncos. They focused last draft on the offense and need to improve their defense with this pick.
9. Detroit Lions- Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama
The Lions always seem to be adding to their defense and need to again to help out Matt Stafford and the offense.
10. Minnesota Vikings- Wyatt Davis, OG/C, Ohio State
The Vikings addressed some big needs when they drafted wide receivers and corners in the 2020 NFL Draft. Now, they can address the offensive line.
11. Los Angeles Chargers- Sam Cosmi, OT, Texas
It looks like the Chargers have a quarterback, now they just have to protect him.
12. Dallas Cowboys- Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech
While they drafted Trevon Diggs last season, the Cowboys defense has proven to still need a corner.
13. Cincinnati Bengals- Creed Humphrey, OG/C, Oklahoma
The Bengals have a star in Joe Burrow, but they have to protect him better. With the top tackle off the board, they can take an interior lineman, as they need help anywhere.
14. Philadelphia Eagles- Andre Cisco, S, Syracuse
Malcolm Jenkins left a hole at safety for the Eagles to fill. Cisco can be a great defender because of his ball skills.
15. Las Vegas Raiders- Shaun Wade, CB, Ohio State
The Raiders’ defense isn’t good and needs to have some serious upgrades. They can get another corner to help improve their pass defense.
16. Carolina Panthers- Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida
If the Panthers wish to improve the offense, they have to get more weapons for Teddy Bridgewater. Pitts is a matchup nightmare that will produce at the NFL level.
17. Arizona Cardinals- Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson
Kenyan Drake has had trouble producing, so Arizona may want to get another running back to help the offense out.
18. New England Patriots- Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama
The Patriots don’t have a lot of good weapons and need to get some receivers who can separate.
19. New Orleans Saints- Christian Baremore, DT, Alabama
Baremore has been a solid defensive lineman for Alabama and can help the Saints in the middle of their defensive line.
20. San Francisco 49ers- Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia
Richard Sherman is aging and the 49ers need help behind him at cornerback anyways.
21. Cleveland Browns- Patrick Surtain, CB, Alabama
Behind Denzel Ward, the Browns need to get more secondary help.
22. Chicago Bears- Carlos Basham, Edge, Wake Forest
Khalil Mack is great at rushing the passer on one side, but the Bears can get an edge rusher of the future here in Basham.
23. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Alex Leatherwood, OT, Alabama
The Bucs need to protect Tom Brady at all costs as he continues to age.
24. Jacksonville Jaguars- Trey Smith, OG/C, Tennessee
For whoever the quarterback is next season, the Jags need to make sure that he is protected.
25. Indianapolis Colts- Quincy Roche, Edge, Miami
Indianapolis needs to generate more pressure on the quarterback to improve their already talented defense.
26. Baltimore Ravens- Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota
Baltimore still doesn’t have the best receivers and can give Lamar Jackson more help with the selection of Bateman.
27. Tennessee Titans- Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue
If the Titans wish to continue to improve, they need to give Ryan Tannehill more weapons to utilize.
28. Pittsburgh Steelers- Jaycee Horn, CB, South Carolina
Joe Haden can only play at a good level for a few more seasons. The Steelers should get more help at corner.
29. Buffalo Bills- Pat Freiermuth, TE, Penn State
The Bills got Josh Allen a weapon this offseason and it paid off. They should continue to add weapons to help Allen grow even more as a passer.
30. New York Jets (via SEA)- Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State
Now that the Jets have taken a quarterback, they need to keep adding to the offensive line.
31. Green Bay Packers- Devonta Smith, WR, Alabama
The Packers failed to get Aaron Rodgers weapons this offseason, but should look into it during the 2021 NFL Draft.
32. Kansas City Chiefs- Patrick Jones, Edge, Pittsburgh
Kansas City has the offense to be successful for years, but can get a good edge rusher to improve the defense.
