NFL Draft for 2021: Latest mock after Jets-Panthers Sam Darnold deal; Fighter swaps back, Eagles nab extra 1st round pick; Patriots get new franchise QB



We are officially only three weeks away from the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, and lots of unanswered questions will be answered soon.

How many quarterbacks go in the top five? Will the San Francisco 49ers take North Dakota State’s Trey Lance or Alabama’s Mac Jones? How far will Ohio State’s Justin Fields fall? Are the Patriots ready to move up to quarterback? What will the Giants and Eagles do? Where will the Jets go after taking a No. 2 quarterback overall?

Here is my latest full first round mock draft.

1

. Jacksonville Jaguars: Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson

A generational prospect for a franchise that desperately needs a stable quarterback.

2. New York Jets: Zach Wilson, QB, BYU

Sam Darnold is gone. The Jets will soon belong to gun hoses from BYU.

3. San Francisco 49ers: Mac Jones, QB, Alabama

Many will sneak in with this choice and talk about all the upside, 49ers leave on the table. Something tells me that Kyle Shanahan knows what he’s doing when it comes to crime.

4. Atlanta Falcons: Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida

The best player in the 2021 NFL Draft. The defense will have nightmares trying to cover Pitts, Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley.

5. Cincinnati Bengals: Ja’Marr Chase, WR, LSU

Joe Burrow reunites with his former college teammate to recreate a dynamic duo.

6. Miami Dolphins: Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama

7. Detroit Lions: Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon

8. Carolina Panthers: Rashawn Slater, OT, Northwestern

9. Denver Broncos: Trey Lance, QB, North Dakota State

10. Dallas Cowboys: Patrick Surtain, CB, Alabama

TRADE: New England trades the overall No. 15 pick and a third-round pick from 2022 for the New York Giants to get up to the No. 11 pick.

11. New England Patriots: Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State

12. Philadelphia Eagles: Jaycee Horn, CB, South Carolina

Fans will complain about an offensive slot machine with this choice, especially with the Heisman Trophy winner sliding down the board. But the Eagles will land a big corner with the ability to become No. 1 in the NFL.

13. Los Angeles Chargers: DeVonta Smith, WR, Alabama

14. Minnesota Vikings: Christian Barmore, DT, Alabama

15. New York Giants: Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State

Dave Gettleman does the unthinkable: Trade down and collect assets. The fighters pass on the idea of ​​taking Smith at. 11 instead of choosing a defensive star in Parsons.

16. Arizona Cardinals: Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech

17. Las Vegas Raiders: Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB, Notre Dame

18. Miami Dolphins: Kwity Paye, DE, Michigan

19. Washington Football Team: Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma State

20. Chicago Bears: Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech

21. Indianapolis Colts: Jaelen Phillips, DE, Miami

22. Tennessee Titans: Azeez Ojulari, OLB, Georgia

23. New York Jets: Greg Newsome II, CB, Northwestern

No corner available late in the first round fits Robert Saleh’s style, like Newsome II. He starts quickly in a new defense.

24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Najee Harris, RB, Alabama

25. Jacksonville Jaguars: Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson

26. Cleveland Browns: Zaven Collins, OLB, Tulsa

27. Baltimore Ravens: Gregory Rousseau, DE, Miami

28. New Orleans Saints: Jayson Oweh, DE, Penn State

29. Green Bay Packers: Alex Leatherwood, OT, Alabama

30. Buffalo Bills: Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue

31. Kansas City Chiefs: Alijah Vera-Tucker, OT, USC

TRADE: Eagles trades No. 37, overall No. 122 and a fifth round in 2022 to Tampa Bay for No. 32 overall pick.

32. Philadelphia Eagles: Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU

The Eagles entered the draft with the most selections (20) of any NFL team over the next two seasons. Howie Roseman redeems some to complete a total remake of the secondary. Moehrig is the kind of player who can be a ball hawk in the NFL.
