Stephen D’Alesio’s NFL Midseason Mock Draft

photo credit: sportingnews.com

We’re heading into Week 9 of the NFL, and there has been a lot of surprises. The Bengals are winning games, Kansas City could be doing better than 4-4 and Cooper Kupp is leading the NFL in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. Its been an eventful season so far, and while teams are shifting their way through the standings, we got the NFL Draft picture getting a little bit clearer. With that being said, let’s get started with a midseason NFL Mock Draft.

  1. Detroit Lions: Kayvon Thibodeaux, EDGE, Oregon.

Detroit has a lot of issues, and Thibodeaux is arguably the best player in the draft. Getting Thibodeaux won’t fix all of the Lions issues, but getting Thibodeaux is a great start to turn the franchise around.

2. Houston Texans: Matt Corral, QB, Ole Miss.

Houston will not have much of an option if Deshaun Watson gets traded or outright doesn’t report to Houston at all. Getting Corral would definitely help with the Texans QB situation.

3. Philadelphia Eagles (via Miami Dolphins): Derek Stingley Jr., CB, LSU.

The secondary has been an issue for the Eagles defense for a while, and although Darius Slay has helped the secondary, he could use some additional help. Getting Stingley would improve the Eagles secondary and defense tremendously.

4. Jacksonville Jaguars: Evan Neal, OT, Alabama.

Trevor Lawrence needs to be protected by the offensive line, and Evan Neal is the best offensive lineman in this draft. This should be an easy decision for the Jaguars.

5. New York Jets: Kenyon Green, OG, Texas A&M.

Zach Wilson got injured, and even though Kyle Hamilton is still out there, protecting Wilson should be an option. Neal got chosen with the previous pick, but Green is still a good option for the Jets.

6. New York Giants: Kyle Hamilton, S, Notre Dame.

It’d be surprising if Kyle Hamilton isn’t chosen by now, but if he’s still on the board, the Giants should get him, which will help the teams secondary and give the Giants a nice safety duo with him and Xavier McKinney.

7. Washington Football Team: Desmond Ridder, QB, Cincinnati.

Taylor Heinicke is not the long-term answer for Washington, and Desmond Ridder has proven his worth so far to be a QB1 for any team. Washington will probably get him here.

8. Philadelphia Eagles: DeMarvin Leal, DL, Texas A&M.

Fletcher Cox may not be an Eagle after this season, and Leal can play anywhere on the defensive line. An ideal fit for both Leal and the Eagles.

9. New York Jets (via Seattle Seahawks): Aidan Hutchinson, EDGE, Michigan.

On both lines, the Jets need solutions, and having chosen Kenyon Green for O-Line help, they’ll probably look to Aidan Hutchinson for the D-Line, who’s got the strength to get to the backfield and make defensive stops.

10. Denver Broncos: Malik Willis, QB, Liberty.

Von Miller getting traded hurts, but not as much as not getting a QB1 for the future. Willis is a versatile QB who can throw and run the ball, and can be a leader for this franchise, which it hasn’t had on offense for a while.

11. New England Patriots: Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State.

Mac Jones has proven so far that he can throw the ball, but he needs a reliable receiver who can step up immediately. Olave fits what Jones and the Patriots are looking for.

12. Carolina Panthers: Ikem Ekwonu, G, NC State.

Panthers will probably stick with Darnold for another year, but repeated injuries to Christian McCaffrey and an inability to run the ball makes the RB position in Carolina tougher than usual. Getting Ekwonu should ease those concerns.

13. New York Giants (via Chicago Bears): Tyler Linderbaum, C, Iowa.

Once again, the Giants issues on the offensive line has gotten them to use another 1st round pick on an O-Lineman. Linderbaum is a major upgrade over Billy Price and can steady the offense with his prescense.

14. Miami Dolphins (via San Francisco 49ers): Charles Cross, OT, Mississippi State.

Tua Tagovailoa’s durability and question as a long-term solution to the Dolphins QB problem hasn’t been helped with an unsteady O-Line. Cross should help Tua find more time in the pocket to prove himself and get the Dolphins wins.

15. Philadelphia Eagles (via Indianapolis Colts): Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State.

Another 1st round pick for the Eagles, and they decide to get Wilson, who should make the Eagles WR position less of a liability and gives QB Jalen Hurts more playmakers for him to work with.

16. Atlanta Falcons: George Karlaftis, EDGE, Purdue.

An athletic guy who can move around the O-Line and can get to the backfield is a guy the Falcons should want. He could be a leader of the D-Line in Atlanta and be an asset for the team.

17. Minnesota Vikings: Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida.

Patrick Peterson is only in Minnesota for this year and Bashaud Breeland has been disappointing. Getting Elam would be a wise move for a Vikings team in need of secondary help.

18. Pittsburgh Steelers: Kenny Pickett, QB, Pittsburgh.

A welcome sight for many Steelers fans. Pickett has stepped up into the 1st round with outstanding play, and the possibility of the hometown kid replacing future Hall-of-Famer Ben Roethlisberger while also stabilizing the Steelers QB in the future is a win for everyone.

19. New Orleans Saints: Nicholas Petit-Frere, OT, Ohio State.

Jameis Winston going down for the year and having Taysom Hill and Trevor Siemian as your QBs isn’t ideal, but protecting them is. Petit-Frere may be a surprise here, but the Saints could use him to protect their investment in Winston.

20. Tennessee Titans: Drake Jackson, EDGE, USC.

Defensive line should be the focus for the Titans. A slow start aside, Jackson has been as valuable on the D-Line as anyone else in the draft, and with questions surrounding the Titans defense after this season, he’d be a good pick for the Titans.

21. Kansas City Chiefs: Myjai Sanders, EDGE, Cincinnati.

Frank Clark being injured and Chris Jones not adjusting well to his position change has only added to the Chiefs problems. Drafting Sanders means Jones can go back to his original position and Frank Clark’s absence isn’t as big of an issue as before.

22. Cincinnati Bengals: Jaxson Kirkland, OT, Washington.

Drafting Ja’Marr Chase was an excellent move for the Bengals, but the O-Line still needs help. Getting Kirkland to play opposite Jonah Williams will make QB Joe Burrow’s job easier.

23. Las Vegas Raiders: Drake London, WR, USC.

The situation surrounding Henry Ruggs III is terrible, and his career is likely over. Having a hole in WR means replacing him, and even though London broke his ankle previously, he’s arguably the Raiders best option.

24. Cleveland Browns: Jordan Davis, DT, Georgia.

With Malik Jackson hitting free agency after the season and Malik McDowell not producing as much, Davis gives Cleveland a complementary player to play alongside Myles Garrett, and make an impact on the D-Line.

25. Dallas Cowboys: Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas.

The defense has surprised many on the Cowboys for good reason, so going offense wouldn’t be bad. Plus with Michael Gallup and Cedrick Wilson heading to free agency after the season, Burks could fill in the void should they choose to walk.

26. Green Bay Packers: George Pickens, WR, Georgia.

Even if Aaron Rodgers leaves Green Bay after the season, Jordan Love is still there at QB. Getting him a WR for him to build chemistry with is a start to rebuild the Packers WR depth chart.

27. Arizona Cardinals: Adam Anderson, EDGE, Georgia.

JJ Watt’s injury leaves much to be desired for Arizona’s defense. Getting Anderson will provide depth on the Cardinals D-Line and some youth to learn from JJ Watt.

28. Baltimore Ravens: Trevor Penning, OT, Northern Iowa.

An offensive tackle who compliments the run game and can step up immediately is a guy the Ravens should get. Penning should give Lamar Jackson and the offense room to work with, plus he fits the Ravens offensive style.

29. Los Angeles Chargers: Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State.

Mike Williams may not be a Charger after this season, and Justin Herbert could use another playmaker at WR. Dotson provides athleticism and speed to Herbert, with an ability to become a solid WR.

30. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson.

Tampa Bay’s secondary has had more than its share of injuries, so getting Booth would be a welcome addition to a depleted secondary unit.

31. Buffalo Bills: Christian Harris, LB, Alabama.

Harris being available here for the Bills would be a welcome sight for them. Secondary depth aside, having Harris in Buffalo’s defense would turn their defense from good to great.

32. Detroit Lions (via Los Angeles Rams): Sam Howell, QB, North Carolina.

The Lions wait until the end of the 1st round to get their QB, and while Howell may not have the same hype as the other QBs in this draft, his versatility and arm should be enough for the Lions to choose him.

Mike’s Mad Early 2022 NFL Mock Draft: Round 1

 

With football season approaching in the fall, it’s  never too early to think about what could happen 9 months from now. The 2022 NFL Draft is full of athletes that poses great potential. Players such as Oklahoma Sooners Quarterback Spencer Rattler, North Carolina Tarheels Quarterback Sam Howell,  and Oregon Ducks Edge Rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux will be a few of the headliners of this deep draft class. Depending on where your team is picking in this mock draft, you may love the player your team picks

 

 

  1. Houston Texans: QB Spencer Rattler, Oklahoma
  • We all know Deshun Watson will eventually be traded and the Texans will need to address the Quarterback position. After experiencing what Lamar Jackson can do, Head Coach David Culley will have a vision in mind on how to use Rattler. Rattler has a strong arm, the mobility and accuracy to give defenses problems at the next level.
  1. Detroit Lions: QB Sam Howell, North Carolina
  • The Lions picking this high means Jared Goff did not live up to expectations and the team decides to move on. Dan Campbell now gets to choose his own Quarterback to lead a young group of players. Howell has a great arm, throws accurate passes, and has good athleticism to get outside the pocket. He can force some throws which could lead to interceptions, but that can be coached out of him.
  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: OT Evan Neal, Alabama
  • Even though the Jaguars are riding a big hype train coming into this season, they still have a young roster that needs to develop more as a group. Urban Myer will soon figure out that the NFL is not like the college level. Cam Robinson is playing on the franchise tag this year and it looks that he will not return for the 2022 season. Even Neal is a massive human being at 6’7 360 pounds but has good athleticism for his size. Neal can step in at left tackle and protect Trevor Lawrence’s blind side.

 

  1. New York Jets: Edge Kayvon Thibodeaux
  • The Jets luck out and get possibly the number 1 player in the draft. The Jets are another young team that needs a year or 2 to develop. Coach Robert Saleh loves adding talented defensive linemen to his defense and creating pressure with his front 7. Thibodeaux is the most dominant player in the country, and he will immediately make an impact in the NFL.
  1. Cincinnati Bengals: CB Derek Stingley Jr., LSU
  • The Bengals may soon regret not taking left tackle Penei Sewell to protect Joe Burrow’s blind side. If Borrow spends most of this upcoming season on his back, then it won’t be a surprise to see them picking this high again. This time the top offensive linemen is off the board and they do not want to reach for one with a high pick. Instead they decide to go best player available. Derek Stingley Jr. is the top defensive back in the nation. He plays well in man coverage and can tackle on the perimeter.
  1. Philadelphia Eagles: CB Kaiir Elam, Florida
  • Jalen Hurts may struggle his first year as a full starter due to the lack of playmakers around him. I would be surprised if the Eagles went with another Quarterback this high. It seems as if the Eagles are always needing a corner in every mock draft. Well Eagles fans here’s your guy. Elam is the second-best defensive back in the draft and with another solid season could challenge Stingley for the top spot. In his career so far, Elam has only allowed thirty-three catches on seventy plus targets.
  1. New York Giants: QB Malik Willis, Liberty
  • The Giants finally realize Daniel Jones isn’t the answer and decide to move in another direction. Coach Joe Judge will get to start fresh with the Quarterback of his choice. The Malik Willis hype train has taken off and by the time the draft comes around, his name should be mentioned as a top 10 pick. Willis has the physical make up to play in the NFL along with the intangibles. He has a strong arm, good mobility, but he needs to improve his accuracy to improve his game.
  1. Atlanta Falcons: Edge Drake Jackson, USC
  • The Falcons have been begging for a pass rush since John Abraham left the team years ago. Now they find a young pass rusher that’s vastly developing his game. Drake Jackson is raw but flashes the talent to be a fierce pass rusher. Being consistent will be the challenge for him in order to become a dominant player.
  1. Carolina Panthers: WR Garrett Wilson, Ohio State
  • The Panthers need to surround Sam Darnold and Christian McCaffrey with more talent for the offense to evolve. Adding more weapons on the perimeter will take more defenders out the box and help McCaffrey in the run game. Wilson is a smooth route runner who can easily create separation.
  1. New York Giants (Via Bears): LB Christian Harris, Alabama
  • With their second 1st round pick the Giants decide to get their Quarterback of the defense. Christian Harris is a day one starter. He can step in and call a defense as a Mike linebacker. He can run, tackle, and cover if asked to. The Giants defense gets younger and faster with this pick.
  1. Denver Broncos: S Kyle Hamilton, Notre Dame
  • The Broncos secondary gets a huge shot in the arm with this pick. Kyle Hamilton is a long and rangy safety that can come down in the box to help in the run game. He also is an effective blitzer. Hamilton paired with Justin Simmons could form a dynamic duo at the safety position.
  1. Las Vegas Raiders: DT DeMarvin Leal, Texas A&M
  • The Raiders defensive line has been abysmal these last few years. They have not been able to stop the run or generate pressure on the opposing teams Quarterback. DeMarvin Leal has top 5 talent but falls to no. 12 in my mock draft. Leal can play anywhere along the interior defensive line and possibly could kick out to defensive end on some downs. Leal would drastically improve the Raiders defense
  1. Arizona Cardinals: OG Kenyon Green, Texas A&M
  • The Cardinals slightly improved their offensive line this off-season, but I don’t think its good enough to get them into the playoffs. Murry could find himself running for his life this season. If that happens the Cardinals will look to add more protection in front of him. Green showed improvement this past season at left guard but will now move to left tackle. If he shows he can handle himself, he could boost his draft stock.
  1. Washington Football Team: QB Kedon Slovis, USC
  • The Washington Football Team needs to get themselves a franchise Quarterback. Ryan Fitzpatrick is bridge Quarterback that can help a young player and show him the ropes. Slovis needs improvement, but his name will be in 1st round consideration by the time the draft comes around. His amazing ball accuracy does set him apart from other in the class.
  1. Minnesota Vikings: Edge George Karlaftis, Purdue
  • The Vikings defense is getting older and young talent is needed to keep the team steady. Coach Mike Zimmer loves young defensive linemen that are versatile. Karlaftis can play in the interior or the outside of the defensive line with his 6’4 270-pound frame.
  1. Los Angeles Chargers: Edge Zach Harrison, Ohio State
  • With losing Melvin Ingram this past off-season, the Chargers did not completely address the need of replacing him. That may come back to hurt them, but the decision may pay off. Supposedly the next great Ohio State defensive linemen, Zach Harrison has plenty of skills rushing the passer. Teaming him with Joey Bosa to learn from will be beneficial.
  1. New England Patriots: WR Chris Olave, Ohio State
  • The Patriots spent a lot of money this off-season that helped them improve the offense. Even though the offense improved, playmakers on the outside is still a need. Chris Olave is a good down the field receiver and route runner. He can become the number one target for Cam Newton or Mack Jones.
  1. Pittsburg Steelers: QB Desmond Ridder, Cincinnati
  • The Steelers will be looking for their next franchise Quarterback during the 2022 off-season. Some may say drafting Ridder will be a reach, but if he has a quality season this year it won’t be a surprise to see him drafted early.
  1. Philadelphia Eagles (Via Dolphins): RB Isaiah Spiller, Texas A&M
  • The Eagles need to add more talent around Jalen Hurts. Having a running back that can threaten a defense by running or catching the ball will take pressure off Hurts. Spiller is one of the top running backs in the nation and will help the Eagles offense become more consistent in the run game.
  1. New Orleans Saints: WR Treylon Burks, Arkansas
  • Michael Tomas needs someone across from him that can draw the double team away from him. With the Saints now without Drew Brees, whomever is their Quarterback will need more weapons to help them further develop. Burks is a solid receiver with great size at 6’3 232 pounds. He uses his frame to make contested catches. Burks can be a great number 2 across from Thomas.
  1. Dallas Cowboys: Edge Kingsley Enagbare, South Carolina
  • Dallas is another team that is in dire need of a pass rush. Enagbare will bring what the Cowboys with his size and explosiveness off the edge. He has a quick twitch that is unmatched. If he has a solid season, he could see himself drafted higher then expected.
  1. Tennessee Titans: TE Jalen Wydermyer, Texas A&M
  • Adding another weapon to this explosive offense would be danger to other teams. Betting that Julio Jones stays healthy the whole season, the Titans will be expected to be in the playoffs. Wydemyer is a physical specimen standing at 6’5 255 pounds. He’s a good route runner, but his most impressive trait is his run blocking.
  1. New York Jets (Via Seahawks): CB Ahmad Gardner, Cincinnati
  • With their 2nd first round pick, the Jets address their secondary. Again, Robert Sialasf loves to add young playmakers to his defense. Ahmad Gardner is a natural man coverage corner. Since his freshmen year as a starter, he has a thirty-five percent completion rate against him.
  1. Philadelphia Eagles (Via Colts): S Jordan Battle, Alabama
  • The Eagles add more help to their secondary with this pick. Jordan Battle is smart, explosive, and versatile as a defensive back. He has experience playing corner so he can help the Eagles in different ways.
  1. Miami Dolphins (Via 49ers): Edge Myjai Sanders, Cincinnati
  • The Dolphins need to continue to add to their defensive line. Their defense is better when their front 7 is producing pressure. Sanders is another prospect that is raw but poses the potential to build upon his talents.
  1. Cleveland Browns: OC Tyler Linderbaum, Iowa
  • After making the playoffs this past season, Cleveland will need to add more young bodies to help protect their franchise Quarterback Baker Mayfield. Linderbaum is the best center in the draft. If the Browns want to continue their success making the playoffs, protecting Mayfield will be the key.
  1. Buffalo Bills: OT Zion Nelson, Miami
  • The Bills are set to pay Josh Allen big money in the upcoming months. The team has already taken the proper steps to help keep Allen upright for the near future by signing Dion Dawkins to a long-term contract. Drafting Nelson will help complete their tackle positions with two young stars. Nelson is one heck of an athlete for his size and is a mauler as a run blocker.
  1. Detroit Lions (Via LA Rams): OT Rasheed Walker, Penn State
  • After drafting their franchise Quarterback, the Lions go and get the guy that is going to protect him. Walker is an athletic tackle that is good in pass protection. He should be able to keep Howell upright.
  1. Baltimore Ravens: Edge Brenton Cox, Florida
  • The Ravens love to add players to their defense, especially when it’s a pass rusher. Brenton Cox can generate pressure from the edge while being able to help defend the run. The Ravens need more young pieces on their aging defense.
  1. Green Bay Packers: WR John Metchie lll, Alabama
  • No matter how the Aaron Rodgers situation plays out, the Packers need to add more weapons to their offense across from Devante Adams. John Metchie is coming into this season with a point to prove. He wants to prove that he has the talent to be a number 1 wide receiver and he’s not a product of Alabama’s system.
  1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: WR Drake London. USC
  • After this season, the Bucs will be a little thin at the wide receiver. Godwin will be a potential free agent, Brown’s situation is year to year, and who knows what Gronk will do. So adding more weapons next off-season will be key. London is a big bodied receiver who can make contested catches and can become a main red zone target.
  1. Kansas City Chiefs: CB Andrew Booth Jr., Clemson
  • The Chiefs secondary needs help in any kind of way. Adding Booth who is a good man and zone defender will better their pass defense. Booth is also not afraid to come down and make a tackle.

 

 

 

Riley’s Early 2022 NFL Mock Draft

The 2022 NFL Draft may be a year away, but it is never too early to predict where these future stars may land. Please enjoy my first attempt at a 2022 NFL Mock Draft!


Round 1

  1. Houston Texans Houston Texans logo

Selection: Sam Howell – QB – North Carolina

By the looks of it, Houston is in store for a disaster of a season. I strongly believe Deshaun Watson has played his last down in a Texans uniform and both Tyrod Taylor and Davis Mills are not the long-term solution. Insert Sam Howell who I believe is the best Quarterback in next years class.


2. Detroit Lions

Selection: Spencer Rattler – QB – Oklahoma

It is a make it or break it season for Jared Goff and the jury seems to be out on him. Spencer Rattler has all the tools to be great and should show signs of development after this upcoming season.


3. Jacksonville Jaguars

Selection: Kayvon Thibodeaux – DE – Oregon

The first non-Quarterback goes off the board here to Jacksonville. They are trending in the right direction but it may take another season or two before they can really put a solid team together. Thibodeaux is an absolute beast off the edge and would pair nicely with Josh Allen.


4. Las Vegas Raiders Las Vegas Raiders logo

Selection: Derek Stingley Jr – CB – LSU

Stingley Jr is my top defensive back prospect heading into next season. I think he will cement himself as a top five prospect and will fall into the Raiders laps after a disappointing year.


5. Cincinnati Bengals

Selection: Evan Neal – OT – Alabama

A year later, and Offensive Line will remain as a priority in Cincy. Joe Burrow got his buddy and former college teammate Ja’Marr Chase in the previous draft, but now it is time to put some protection around their franchise Quarterback.


6. New York Jets

Selection: Kyle Hamilton – S – Notre Dame

New York is headed in the right direction with new Head Coach Robert Saleh. However, a few more pieces need to be added to the puzzle and shoring up the back-end of the secondary with the best Safety in the class will give the Jets a great tandem with Hamilton and Marcus Maye.


7. Philadelphia Eagles

Selection: Kaiir Elam – CB – Florida

Philadelphia still have multiple holes on their roster. Both the Offensive and Defensive Lines are getting old and the season ultimately hangs on the development of Jalen Hurts. Adding Elam to the secondary to learn from and aging Darius Slay will allow for an easier transition once he decides to leave or retire.


8. Atlanta Falcons

Selection: Drake Jackson – DE – USC

Atlanta has been searching for a consistent pass rusher since John Abraham hung up his cleats. Guys like Vic Beasley and Takk McKinley have come and gone leaving the door wide open. Drake Jackson has all the potential in the world to be great and Falcon fans should be excited if they are able to bring him into their organization.


9. New York Giants (via Chicago) See the source image

Selection: Kedon Slovis – QB – USC

This selection suggestion that Daniel Jones shows no signs of improvement after the Giants surrounded him with all the weapons he could ask for. Kedon Slovis will have the opportunity to come in and do what Daniel Jones couldn’t.


10. New Orleans Saints New Orleans Saints logo

Selection: Chris Olave – WR – Ohio State

I am expecting the Saints to have a down year this season. Drew Brees has moved into the next phase of his life, and the Saints front office had an absolute mess of an off-season trying to get under the cap. I believe Jameis Winston will have a solid season but with so many unknowns at multiple positions, it looks to be an up-hill battle. Adding Olave to this offense will finally add a compliment to Michael Thomas.


11. Denver Broncos Denver Broncos logo

Selection: Christian Harris – LB – Alabama

With the top three Quarterbacks taken, the Broncos address their second position of need with this pick. The Linebacker room scares me in a bad way in Denver and is the biggest weakness on their Defense. Christian Harris will be a day-one starter and will help take this Defense to the next level.


12. New York Giants See the source image

Selection: DeMarvin Leal – DT – Texas A&M

You live and die in the trenches, therefore beefing up the middle of the Defensive Line should always be a priority. Dalvin Tomlinson has moved onto Minnesota leaving a hole in the middle of the Giants Defense. DeMarvin Leal is a great run stuffer and his athleticism is underrated for a big guy.


13. Carolina Panthers Carolina Panthers logo

Selection: Kenyon Green – OL – Texas A&M

Clearing holes for CMC and protecting Sam Darnold is exactly what Kenyon Green will do for the Panthers. He can play inside and out and will be paving holes in Carolina for years to come.


14. Dallas Cowboys Dallas Cowboys logo

Selection: George Karlaftis – DE – Purdue

In 2022, the Cowboys’ Defense will continue to be a liability. It won’t matter how many points the Offense can score if their Defense cannot stop anyone. Pair Karlaftis with DeMarcus Lawrence and the pass rush will get back to where it needs to be.


15. Los Angeles Chargers Los Angeles Chargers logo

Selection: Zach Harrison – DE – Ohio State

Melvin Ingram has yet to re-sign with the Chargers, leaving a big hole on the Defensive Line. Joey Bosa needs a running mate and this leads the Chargers to head back to Ohio State to get him one.


16. Cleveland Browns Cleveland Browns helmet

Selection: Justyn Ross – WR – Clemson

Once again, Cleveland does not have many holes on their roster. Baker will continue to be a game manager but it could be worse. I think the Odell Beckham Jr experiment ends after this season as it appears he is not the dynamic player he claims to be. Justyn Ross is coming off a season-ending injury but remains as one of the top Receivers in this class


17. New England Patriots New England Patriots logo

Selection: Garrett Wilson – WR – Ohio State

The Patriots got their guy last draft in Mac Jones. Now, they must surround him with weapons on Offense to help him succeed. New England landed the top two Tight Ends in Free Agency this year, but Receiver is still questionable. Wilson would be an immediate impact player for the Patriots.


18. Miami Dolphins (via San Francisco)

Selection: Jaxson Kirkland – OT – Washington

The Dolphins have slowly put together a strong team but the Offensive Line could use some additional work. I like this fit for Jaxson Kirkland and believe it would go a long way in protecting Tua.


19. Arizona Cardinals Arizona Cardinals logo

Selection: Zion Nelson – OT – Miami

The same comments I mentioned with the Dolphins can be applied here. Arizona looks to be on the rise but the Offensive Line could use more help.


20. Minnesota Vikings Minnesota Vikings logo

Selection: Kingsley Enagbare – DE – South Carolina

I was thinking the Vikings would address this position in this past draft. Unfortunately, they did not until the later rounds. Enagbare would pair nicely with Danielle Hunter the two of them off the edge would be a scary sight for opposing Quarterbacks.


21. Washington Football Team Washington Football Team logo

Selection: Desmond Ridder – QB – Cincinnati

Washington has quietly built a very strong team. However, the long-term solution at Quarterback remains up in the air. Ryan Fitzpatrick will win some games for Washington this season but he is near the end of his career. Ridder will have the opportunity to come in and lead this team for the next two decades.


22. Philadelphia Eagles (via Miami)

Selection: Charles Cross – OT – Mississippi State

The youth movement continues in Philadelphia with their second of three first round picks. If the Eagles truly believe in Jalen Hurts than they must do everything they can to maintain their great Offensive Line. Cross is a day one starter caliber player but may be better off sitting behind Lane Johnson for a season to learn and develop.


23. Tennessee Titans

Selection: Andrew Booth Jr – CB – Clemson

Titan fans may be upset with this pick because they drafted a Corner in the first round in this past draft with Caleb Farley. I liked that pick for the Titans but the Secondary is still a mess in Tennessee.


24. Philadelphia Eagles (via Indianapolis Colts)

Selection: Treylon Burks – WR – Arkansas

With their third first round pick in this draft, the Eagles are able to address another position of need. It seems as though the Eagles are drafting a Receiver in the first round each year. DeVonta Smith will be a dynamic playmaker but the rest of the current Receivers are lackluster. Burks and Smith will make a great tandem.


25. Baltimore Ravens Baltimore Ravens logo

Selection: Ikem Ekwonu – IOL – NC State

The Ravens need to beef up the middle of their run heavy Offensive Line. Ikem Ekwonu will be able to come in and start right away as I believe he is very pro-ready.


26. Green Bay Packers Green Bay Packers logo

Selection: George Pickens – WR – Georgia 

The Aaron Rodgers era may be over in Green Bay, insert Jordan Love into the QB1 spot. With that being said, Green Bay decides to build around their young Quarterback and give him a weapon opposite of Devante Adams.


27. New York Jets (via Seattle)

Selection: John Metchie III – WR – Alabama

John Metchie III will add a dynamic playmaking ability to this Jets Offense, which has been lacking for some time now. Zach Wilson needs the tools to succeed and he gets one of the top Receivers here.


28. Pittsburgh Steelers Pittsburgh Steelers logo

Selection: Malik Willis – QB – Liberty 

Ben Roethlisberger is gearing up for what most people assume to be his last season in the NFL. This means Pittsburgh will be in search of his successor. Malik Willis has a lot of potential to be a great Quarterback in the NFL and the Steelers will be able to rest easy knowing he will be throwing passes for the Black and Yellow for years to come.


29. Buffalo Bills Buffalo Bills logo

Selection: Isaiah Spiller – RB – Texas A&M

The running game will be Buffalo’s Achilles heel this season. Josh Allen was the Bills leading rusher last season and that should scare people. As good as Allen is, he cannot win games solely with his arm. Adding a run game is critical for this Bills team. Isaiah Spiller is currently my top Running Back prospect and think he would bring a new element to the Bills Offense.


30. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tampa Bay Buccaneers logo

Selection: Ahmad Gardner – CB – Cincinnati 

I do not see any holes on this Buccaneers roster. I liked the selection of Kyle Trask to learn from Tom Brady and eventually take-over as the starting Quarterback. Tampa could go anywhere with this pick but adding to the secondary is the way I see them heading.


31. Detroit Lions (via Los Angeles Rams)

Selection: Ventrell Miller – LB – Florida 

The Lions are back with their second pick of the first round. First, they addressed the Quarterback position, and now they look to address the Middle Linebacker position. Ventrell Miller is a down-hill, hard hitting linebacker who is excellent sideline to sideline.


32. Kansas City Chiefs Kansas City Chiefs logo

Selection: Sevyn Banks – CB – Ohio State

Kansas City is another team that has next to no holes. However, I think their secondary could use some help and spending a first round pick on a potential shutdown Corner would add tremendous value to the Chiefs Defense.

Pupo’s way-to-early 2022 Mock Draft

  • photo credit: theadvocate.com

You thought Mock Draft season was over didn’t you? Think again!! Now that the dust has settled on this year’s Draft, it’s time to put out a way-to-early Mock for next year. Here is my early look, at how the 1st and 2nd Round will play out next year. The order is how I project the season to go. I hope you enjoy!

  1. Houston = Sam Howell (Jr) QB – North Carolina
  • New Head Coach David Culley, is having his work cut out so far. With Deshaun Watson wanting out, to go along with his legal troubles, Culley might be the busiest Head Coach in the NFL. Even though they selected Davis Mills in the 3rd Round, if they earn the first overall pick, I see them going Quarterback again. Howell’s stats will inflate, with him loosing Javonte Williams, Michael Carter, Dyami Brown, and Dazz Newsome, but it will still be good enough for him to be the first player off the board. Howell becomes the new face of the franchise in Houston.

2. New York Jets = Kayvon Thibodeaux (RSo) EDGE – Oregon

  • The Jets picking here might be a head scratcher for most, but I just feel that they should have provided Zach Wilson with better weapons, in order for him to have more success. A trade down could be in play here, but not with a player like Thibodeaux on the board. If he was eligible for this year’s Draft, he most likely would have been the top pass rusher drafted. He’s a true No.1 Edge rusher, with a chance to be one of the top five players at the position for the next decade.

3. Detroit = Derek Stingley Jr. (Jr) CB – LSU

  • General Manager Brad Holmes, was with the Rams when they drafted Jared Goff with the first overall pick, back in 2016. With that being said, I don’t see them drafting somebody to replace Goff, when Holmes has a really good relationship with him. They took Jeffrey Okudah 3rd overall last year, and they could use somebody opposite him. If Derek Stingley was eligible to enter the Draft after his remarkable true Freshman year, he might have leapfrogged Okudah, as the first Cornerback taken. Ironically, their now teammates. Stingley has everything you want in a Corner, and it would be a surprise if he’s not a super star. I’ll be sure to tell my kids, that Stingley was the best true Freshman CB ever. Stingley and Okudah, will give the Lions the best young Secondary in the league.

4. Washington = J.T. Daniels (RJr) QB – Georgia

  • Your probably thinking to yourself, ”No way Washington is the fourth worst team in Football after winning the NFC East last season”. We all know Ryan Fitzpatrick is an up and down Quarterback, and everybody knows Washington will be in the hunt for a Quarterback next offseason. I’ve always been a J.T. Daniels fan, and I’m still confused as to why it took so long for Kirby Smart to announce him as the starter. Daniels started 4 games last season, and the Bulldogs were 4-0. He threw for 1,231 Passing Yards, and 10 Touchdowns, foreshadowing what he can do next season as the team’s full time starter. Don’t be surprised, if Daniels leads the Bulldogs to a National Championship victory next January.

5. Jacksonville = Evan Neal (Jr) OT/G – Alabama

  • The Jags had one of the best Drafts this year, and they will be looking to build off of that success, in next year’s Draft. Walker Little was a nice pick, but they could use more help along that Offensive Line, in order for Trevor Lawrence to have more success. Neal played left Guard as a true Freshman, then moved to RT as a Sophomore, and should move to LT next season, with the departure of Alex Leatherwood. Either at Tackle or Guard, Neal will carve out a nice career, and would help keep Lawrence upright.

6. Cincinnati = Christian Harris (Jr) LB – Alabama

  • The Bengals took Jackson Carman, and D’Ante Smith in this year’s Draft, and that’s good enough for them to address another need with their pick here, and address the Offensive Line on Day 2. It takes a special type of Linebacker to start as a true Freshman under Nick Saban, and that’s what Harris did in 2019, starting 12 of 13 games. The Bengals Linebackers aren’t great, and they could use a stud like Harris in the middle. Harris should easily be the most coveted ILB next Spring. Harris would be the signal caller on that Bengals Defense.

7. Philadelphia = Kyle Hamilton (Jr) S – Notre Dame

  • Is Jalen Hurts the franchise in Phily? Hurts threw for 1,061 Passing Yards, 6 Touchdowns, while throwing 4 Interceptions, in his 4 starts last season. Those aren’t relatively great numbers, but keep in mind, he never had a full offseason last year, and he gets that this year. I don’t think he’s going to have a great year, but it will be good enough for the Eagles to give him another year as the starter, to see what they got in him. Nick Sirianni is an Offensive minded Coach, which could do wonders for Hurts’ game. With that being said, they can address the Safety position, which is in dire need of an upgrade. If Kyle Hamilton was eligible this year, he most likely would have been the first Safety off the board. Hamilton would instantly give that Eagles Secondary a much-needed boost.

8. Carolina = Charles Cross (RSo) OT – Mississippi State

  • The Panthers are in a similar situation along with the Eagles. Their still curious as to if, their starting Quarterback is the long term answer. Sam Darnold struggled in New York, but was it a combination of his poor supporting cast and himself? We will see and find out. I see him having a fine year, and I don’t think they will give up on him, after only 1 season. He could use some more protection up front. Cross is an ascending prospect, who I see having a similar rise like Christian Darrisaw did. He would help keep Darnold upright.

9. Las Vegas = Chris Olave (Sr) WR – Ohio State

  • Is it time for the Raiders to replace Derek Carr? Carr is often scrutinized by many, and the Raiders seem to block out that noise. I see him returning as the starter in 2022. Is he a guy that’s going to throw for 40 Touchdowns in a season? Probably not, but he’s still capable of having success. Ruggs disappointed last season, but let’s not label him as a bust just yet. They can use another WR opposite him. Olave surprised most by returning for his Senior year, but it might have been the right decision, because he has a chance to be the first WR off the board next year. This reminds me of when DeVonta Smith passed on the 2020 Draft, in order to return for his Senior year. He would most likely have been a late round pick, and it turned out, it was the right move. Same goes for Olave.

10. Atlanta = Nik Bonitto (RJr) EDGE – Oklahoma

  • Rumours have been swirling around, that Julio Jones could be traded, but I just don’t see them trading one of the best WR’s in the past little while. They drafted Kyle Pitts to complete their Offense, and it wouldn’t be right to trade Julio. The Falcons need some pass rush help, and Bonitto can give them that. He broke out as a Redshirt Sophomore last season, collecting 32 total tackles, and 8.5 sacks. Even with that impressive season, he’s flying under people’s radars, but it won’t be long until they start noticing him.

11. Green Bay = Kaiir Elam (Jr) CB – Florida

  • Aaron Rodgers has announced his frusturation with the Packers organization, and I don’t think he will be back in Green Bay. So now, it’s Jordan Love’s team. Nobody really knows, how he’s going to perform, in his first season as a starting Quarterback. Regardless what type of year he has, it wouldn’t be right to give up on him, after only 1 season. The Packers just aren’t a fan of drafting WR’s in the 1st Round. They haven’t done so since 2002, when they selected Javon Walker. Kevin King was only brought back on a 1 year deal, and even if he’s retained, they could use a player like Elam in that Secondary, relegating King to Slot duties. Elam and Alexander, would form one of the best CB tandems in the league.

12. New York Giants = Kenyon Green (Jr) OT/G – Texas A&M

  • This is a make or break year for Daniel Jones. If he plays bad, he will most likely be replaced next Spring. I see him having a similar year as he did in 2019 (3,027 Passing Yards, 24 Touchdowns, 14 Interceptions), resulting in the Giants giving him another year. He can use some more protection up front. Green has just played Guard, so far during his time in College Station, but was recruited as a Tackle, meaning he offers versatility. Whether at Guard or Tackle, he woud his Quarterback upright.

13. Minnesota = Spencer Rattler (RSo) QB – Oklahoma

  • The Kirk Cousins era in Minnesota is officially over. He’s a fine Quarterback, but I just don’t know if he’s the guy that can get you to the promise land. He will be 34 next year, and it’s the appropriate time to move on from him. At the end of the day, it wouldn’t surprise me, if Spencer Rattler winds up as the #1 overall pick. Rattler has crazy arm talent, and makes impressive off-platform throws. Last season he threw for 3,031 Passing Yards, 28 Touchdowns, while throwing 7 Interceptions, in his first season as a starter, after sitting behind Jalen Hurts as a true Freshman. He will be looking to build off of that success this upcoming season. Rattler’s upside is enormous. 

14. Indianapolis = Zion Nelson (Jr) OT – Miami

  • Carson Wentz is reunited with his former Offensive Coordinator Frank Reich, and he should perform better this upcoming season. He can use more help in front of him. Eric Fisher will be 31 next year, and is coming off a torn Achilles. He simply can’t be relied upon, as the long term answer at Left Tackle. Nelson can step in and start right away, protecting the blindside of Carson Wentz.

15. New York Giants (from Chicago) = DeMarvin Leal (Jr) DL – Texas A&M

  • The Giants could use another WR, but that can be addressed on Day 2. Getting help along their Defensive Line is more of a priority. Danny Shelton can be replaced. Leal has experienced playing inside and outside, and would fit in perfectly with the Giants. Williams, Lawrence, and Leal, would give Defensive Coordinator’s fits.

16. New Orleans = George Pickens (Jr) WR – Georgia

  • I wouldn’t rule out a Quarterback here, but ultimately I believe the Saints will go in a different direction. Michael Thomas has needed a running mate opposite him for quite some time, and they get him here with the selection of Pickens. Pickens tore his ACL in March, and might miss some time early in the season, but I see him coming back with a vengeance. Him and Michael Thomas, would instantly form, one of the best WR tandems in the league.

17. Tennessee = Jordan Davis (Sr) DT – Georgia

  • This Titans team is talented enough to go all the way. They need a few more pieces to solidify their team. They could stand to upgrade the interior of their Defensive Line. Davis, who surprised many by returning to School for his Senior season, is a massive nose tackle who would fit perfectly with the Titans 3-4 scheme. Him and Jeffery Simmons, would form a nice tandem, that would anchor that Defense.

18. Los Angeles Chargers = Justyn Ross (RJr) WR – Clemson

  • Justin Herbert may very well become the best Quarterback to come out of last year’s Class. He’s just starting to come into his own, and his ceiling is through the roof. Mike Williams is an impending free agent next offseason, and might not be back. Here’s his replacement. Ross missed last season with a spinal condition, and should return right back to his old form. Ross was arguably the Tigers’ best WR as a true Freshman and Sophomore. Ross and Allen, would be scary together.

19. Philadelphia (from Miami) = Rasheed Walker (RJr) OT – Penn State

  • Were not going to give up on Andre Dilliard just yet. It wouldn’t be right to. They selected him in the 1st Round, just 2 years ago. Lane Johnson only played 7 games last year, and will be 32 next year. Here’s some insurance for both Dilliard and Johnson. Walker is an ascending Tackle prospect, who might start as a backup, then can take over a starting spot in the near future.

20. New England = Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner (Jr) CB – Cincinnati

  • Stephon Gilmore was being shopped during the season, and there’s a chance, he won’t return. So drafting a Corner here at 20 makes sense. The man they call “Sauce” was one of the top CB’s in all of College Football last season, collecting 3 Interceptions, while breaking up 9 passes. Gardner and J.C. Jackson would form a nice CB tandem.

21. Miami (from San Francisco) = Breece Hall (Jr) RB – Iowa State

  • General Manager Chris Grier and Head Coach Brian Flores deserve a lot of credit, for turning this Dolphins team around. Miami finished 10-6 last season, just falling short of the playoffs. They just need a few more pieces, to complete their team. A bell cow back is needed, and it would take pressure off of Tua. Hall rushed for 1,572 Rushing Yards last season, which was the most in College Football, and scored 23 total Touchdowns. This Offense just got even more scary.

22. Pittsburgh = Daniel Faalele (Sr) OT – Minnesota

  • This season may be Big Ben’s last. If not 2022, will surely be his last. They could take a Quarterback here, but I think their gonna give Dwayne Haskins a shot, at some point. They can use some help at Tackle, with Alejandro Villanueva out the door. Faalele is a massive Tackle prospect, standing at 6’9 400 pounds, who would come in and start right away at either Tackle spot.

23. New York Jets (from Seattle) = Jalen Wydermyer (Jr) TE – Texas A&M

  • Like I mentioned earlier, I feel the Jets should have provided Zach Wilson with better weapons, in order for him to have more success. Well their providing him with another weapon, here with this selection. Wydermyer has put together 2 productive seasons so far, and he will be looking to build off of that success, this upcoming season. He just might be, the best TE in all of College Football.

24. Arizona = Andrew Booth Jr. (Jr) CB – Clemson

  • I had the Cardinals selecting Jaycee Horn with their 16th pick this year, but he was off the board, and they went with Zaven Collins. Collins was a good pick, but they need to address the CB position next year. Patrick Peterson is out the door, and Byron Murphy is better in the Slot. Booth only started 4 games last season, but he flashed first round potential. He will be a full time starter this season, and will be one of the top CB’s in all of College Football.

25. Green Bay (from Denver) = Aidan Hutchinson (Sr) EDGE – Michigan

  • Their were talks of Aaron Rodgers going to Denver, and that’s where I believe he will end up. Meaning, this pick will belong to Green Bay. I gave them Kaiir Elam earlier, and their going to stay on the Defensive side of the ball, with this pick. They have needed a strong 5 technique DE for quite some time, and they get it here. If he didn’t break his ankle last season, Hutchinson might have entered this year’s Draft. Hutchinson would start, and would make an immediate impact right away.

26. Buffalo = Ventrell Miller (RSr) LB – Florida

  • This Bills team is really close, as evinced by their trip to the AFC Championship game, this past January. They don’t have a lot of holes, but they could upgrade their Linebacking core. Matt Milano was resigned this offseason, but A.J. Klein can be upgraded. Miller, Edmunds, and Milano would form a great LB core, which would be one of the league’s best.

27. Dallas = Haskell Garrett (RSr) DT – Ohio State

  • If it wasn’t for Dak Prescott going down last season, who knows how far the Cowboys would have went. They have the capability to go deep in the playoffs, and this pick helps that. Trysten Hill hasn’t performed the way they expected him to, and Neville Gallimore only flashed a little bit last season. Here’s an upgrade. Most thought Garrett would have came out this year, but decided to return to Columbus for another season. He would give the Cowboys some stability, along the interior of their Defensive Line.

28. Baltimore = Perrion Winfrey (Sr) DT – Oklahoma

  • The Ravens weakest link of their Defense, is their Defensive Line. Calais Campbell, Brandon Williams, and Derek Wolfe, are all aging, and the Ravens need help. Winfrey is a former JUCO star, who had a fine first season in Norman. He could be in for a monster year this season. He would be welcomed with open arms, in Baltimore.

29. Kansas City = Garrett Wilson (Jr) WR – Ohio State

  • Another stud WR for the Chiefs eh? Demarcus Robinson was only brought back on a 1 year deal, and they might not bring him back in 2022. If you didn’t already know, Wilson made an unreal catch as a true Freshman in the playoff game 2 years ago against Clemson. He’s been one of the most productive WR’s in College Football, in his first 2 years at Ohio State, and I expect him to continue that success this upcoming season. Patrick Mahomes is going to love him. Garrett Wilson, Tyreek Hill, and Mecole Hardman, would be very diffcult to stop, game in and game out.

30. Detroit (from Los Angeles Rams) = Treylon Burks (Jr) WR – Arkansas

  • As mentioned above, I don’t see the Lions taking a Quarterback in 2022. Their WR core includes; Breshad Perriman, Quintez Cephus, Tyrell Williams, and now Amon-Ra St. Brown. Simply put, Goff needs more help around him. Burks broke out last season, hauling in 51 passes, for 820 Yards, and scored 7 Touchdowns. He would instantly be the Lions new #1 WR.

31. Cleveland = D.J. Dale (Jr) DT – Alabama

  • This is probably a surprise to almost all, that I have the Browns knocking off the Chiefs, in the AFC Championship game, to advance to the Super Bowl. It’s really hard to make it to the Super Bowl 3 years in a row, and I feel the Browns are ready for the next step. They have few holes on their roster, one of them being the interior of their Defensive Line. Dale can step in and start right away, and help get Myles Garrett singled.

32. Tampa Bay = Ty Fryfogle (RSr) WR – Indiana

  • An 8th Super Bowl for Tom Brady eh? There’s a good chance he goes down, as the greatest athlete of all-time. They placed the franchise tag on Chris Godwin, but he might not be back in 2022. Fryfogle had his best year in 2020, catching 37 passes, for 721 Yards, scoring 7 Touchdowns. Instead of entering this year’s Draft, he decided to use his extra year of eligibility, and the decision was probably for the better. He has a chance to elevate his Draft stock. He would immediately replace Chris Godwin.

Riley’s 2021 Mock Draft 4.0 – 3 Rounds

Cover Photo taken from pff.com & All Logos were taken from wikipedia.org

It is Draft Day! Trades have happened, rumors are flying, yet we will find out what’s really true tonight. After months of preparation every fan and analyst believe they have an idea on what will happen. However, that’s what makes the Draft so awesome, it is incredibly unpredictable. This Mock includes three first-round trades that are explained at the end. Finally, here is my final 3-Round 2021 Mock Draft.

*Indicates Compensatory Pick


Round 1

  1. Jacksonville Jaguars

Selection: Trevor Lawrence – QB – Clemson

We have known for several months now that Trevor Lawrence will be the first player selected. Nothing has changed since then. Urban Meyer gets his franchise Quarterback with his first pick as an NFL Head Coach.


2. New York Jets

Selection: Zach Wilson – QB – BYU

With the known fact that Trevor Lawrence will be gone, the Jets have had the chance to determine who they want to lead their franchise. The Jets GM Joe Douglas was open about the fact that the Jets have zeroed in on a QB. Although he hasn’t publicly said it was Zach Wilson, all signs are pointing that way. The Jets get to start over with Sam Darnold being shipped to Carolina. With a new Head Coach and new Quarterback, New York looks to get on the right track with this pick.


3. San Francisco 49ers (from Houston via Miami) San Francisco 49ers logo

Selection: Mac Jones – QB – Alabama

The buzz around the league continues to be that San Fran loves Mac Jones, and deservedly so. Most experts have Mac Jones listed as the 5th best QB in the class and the only reason for that is because he isn’t flashy. Arm talent wise, Mac is a gifted and an incredibly accurate passer. He is sneaky athletic and will thrive in Kyle Shanahan’s offence. San Fran better get this pick right, otherwise it will be talked about for years to come


4. Atlanta Falcons

Selection: Kyle Pitts – TE – Florida

Atlanta is rumored to be in the Quarterback market. However, that does not make a lot of sense to me. The only thing the Falcons did well last year was throw the ball! Matt Ryan still has multiple years left in him so adding Pitts to the lineup should be a no-brainer. Not many teams will be able to stop a receiving corps of Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Kyle Pitts, and Hayden Hurst.


5. Cincinnati Bengals

Selection: Ja’Marr Chase – WR – LSU

I have gone back and forth on this pick. It seems to be between Chase and Sewell but this off-season, Cincy added veteran Riley Reiff to their roster and have a developing Tackle with Jonah Williams. Even after opting out of the 2020 season, Chase remains as the top Receiver in this years class. Joe Burrow will be jumping for joy on his torn ACL once this pick is announced. Cincy cannot pass on the potential super star.


6. Miami Dolphins (via Philadelphia)

Selection: Penei Sewell – OT – Oregon

With Chase off the board, Miami can simply take the best player available. Penei Sewell will anchor the Dolphins line for the next decade, allowing Tua to come into his own.


*TRADE*

7. New England Patriots (via Detroit) New England Patriots logo

Selection: Justin Fields – QB – Ohio State

After what would be described as an “unusual” season for the Patriots, they are the first team to move up in order to select one of the top Quarterbacks. New England was aggressive in free agency and have a number of players returning from opting out. Although Cam Newton was brought back, Quarterback remains their biggest priority. Justin Fields may not see the field right away but he will be ready when his time comes.


*TRADE*

8. Washington Football Team (via Carolina) Washington Football Team logo

Selection: Trey Lance – QB – North Dakota State

Rumors have been swirling lately that Washington would like to move up and getting ahead of Denver for a Quarterback might be critical. Washington may already have a good enough roster to win the NFC East but they need to figure out their long-term plan at the QB position. Trey Lance has the size and the skill to be an All-Pro in the NFL and learning from Ryan Fitzpatrick for a year will help him develop.


9. Denver Broncos Denver Broncos logo

Selection: Micah Parsons – LB – Penn State

With the recent addition of Teddy Bridgewater, I strongly believe Vic Fangio is giving the keys to Drew Lock. It is his job to lose and show that he can develop as a professional Quarterback. With that being said, the only major need for this Broncos team is the Middle Linebacker. Micah Parsons is not only the best Linebacker in this draft class, but he is the best defensive player.


10. Dallas Cowboys Dallas Cowboys logo

Selection: Patrick Surtain II – CB – Alabama

I have been saying all along, Surtain II is the best Cornerback this year and Jerry Jones should be running to submit this pick. Dallas needs to address their defense, they were atrocious last season. It won’t matter how many points Dak and the gang put up if their defense cannot stop anyone. Pairing Surtain II and his former Bama teammate Trevon Diggs will bring continuity to the Dallas secondary.


11. New York Giants See the source image

Selection: DeVonta Smith – WR – Alabama

Although the Giants need to address the Offensive Line, they cannot pass up on a playmaker like DeVonta Smith. with the return of Saquon and the addition of Kenny Golladay, Daniel Jones has no excuses to play better.


12. Philadelphia Eagles (from San Francisco via Miami)

Selection: Jaylen Waddle – WR – Alabama

After trading back and accumulating picks, the Eagles can put some weapons around Jalen Hurts. The selection of Jaylen Waddle will give their offense a dynamic playmaker. Waddle has been compared to Tyreek Hill and if that’s true, he will be a Pro Bowler year-in and year-out.


13. Los Angeles Chargers Los Angeles Chargers logo

Selection: Rashawn Slater – OT – Northwestern

It is no secret that the Chargers need to address their offensive line. Investing in players that protect your franchise Quarterback is never a bad idea. Slater has All-Pro written all over him and I will not be surprised if he is the best Offensive Lineman to come out in this years class.


14. Minnesota Vikings Minnesota Vikings logo

Selection: Alijah Vera-Tucker – OL – USC

The toss-up of Offensive Lineman or Pass Rusher continues for the Vikings. With a deep Pass Rusher class, the Vikings would be foolish to pass up on Vera-Tucker. He can play both Tackle or Guard and will be paving holes for Dalvin Cook come the 2021 season.


*TRADE*

15. Detroit Lions (via New England)

Selection: Caleb Farley – CB – Virginia Tech

After trading with the Patriots, the Lions address their secondary for the second year in a row. Some scouts are worried about Farley’s back injuries but his talent is top-notch. Farley and Okudah will be put to the task against Kirk Cousins and Aaron Rodgers twice a year.


16. Arizona Cardinals Arizona Cardinals logo

Selection: Jaycee Horn – CB – South Carolina

Long-time Arizona Cardinal Corner Patrick Peterson is gone, his replacement is no other than Jaycee Horn out of South Carolina. With the return of Chandler Jones and the addition of JJ Watt, the secondary is the biggest hole on the Cardinals roster. No more excuses for Kliff Kingsbury, now is the time to make a run in the playoffs.


17. Las Vegas Raiders Las Vegas Raiders logo

Selection: Kwity Paye – DE – Michigan

The Clelin Ferrell experiment hasn’t worker out, it was a reach to tale him as high as they did back in 2019. The Raiders have consistently underachieved and have been unable to rush the passer. Adding Paye to a rotation of Maxx Crosby and Yannick Ngakoue should help solve their problem.


18. Miami Dolphins

Selection: Jaelan Phillips – DE – Miami

After taking Penei Sewell earlier, the Dolphins address the pass rush with this pick. Staying local with the Defensive End out of Miami. Phillips had a monster year in 2020, proving that he is one of the best pass rushers in this years Draft.


*TRADE*

19. Carolina Panthers (via Washington) Carolina Panthers logo

Selection: Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah – LB – Notre Dame

Carolina has been rumored to move back in the draft and with the QB needy team such as Washington ready to move up, the move happens. Carolina spent all of their draft picks on defensive players last season and that trend continues here. Adding a do-it-all Linebacker like JOK will help that defense take that next step.


20. Chicago Bears Chicago Bears logo

Selection: Christian Darrisaw – OT – Virginia Tech

As hard as it may be to believe, Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace must have a plan in place. Chicago may be a team that moves up for a Quarterback because as we all know, Andy Dalton is not the solution. However, in the mean time the Offensive Line needs to be better. Christian Darrisaw is one of the top Tackles in this years class and is a prime prospect for the Bears to target.


21. Indianapolis Colts Indianapolis Colts logo

Selection: Samuel Cosmi – OT – Texas

Colts fans might be angry with me because this pick has remained the same throughout the entire off-season. But there is a reason for that. Cosmi screams Colts to me and taking over the LT spot for Anthony Castonzo on one of the best Offensive Lines in the league just makes sense.


22. Tennessee Titians

Selection: Greg Newsome II – CB – Northwestern

Cornerback and Pass Rusher remain the two biggest weaknesses in Tennessee. Although I am weary on their big Free Agency signing of Bud Dupree who is coming off of a torn ACL, they must begin rebuilding their secondary. Greg Newsome II has been flying up draft boards and I see a lot of Darius Slay in his game. Newsome II has all the tools to be a lockdown Cornerback


23. New York Jets (via Seattle)

Selection: Rashod Bateman – WR – Minnesota

I have said it before and I will say it again, I am extremely high on Bateman, despite him not playing in 2020. He might be the best route-runner in the class and has reliable hands. The Jets took Zach Wilson with the second overall pick and now they’re surrounding him with the pieces to succeed.


24. Pittsburgh Steelers Pittsburgh Steelers logo

Selection: Najee Harris – RB – Alabama

As a Steeler fan, this is my dream pick. Najee Harris is my RB1 and is a dynamic ball carrier. As I have said in the past the Steelers offense was hard to watch down the stretch last season as Big Ben was forced to throe the ball forty-five times a game. Adding a run game to this team may be exactly what they need to reach the Super Bowl.


25. Jacksonville Jaguars (via Los Angeles Rams)

Selection: Trevon Moehrig – S – TCU

Moehrig is the best and arguably the only first-round caliber Safety in this years draft class. Moehrig can control the back end of that Jags defense as he is great in coverage as well and down in the box. Jaguar fans should be excited for their teams future if they can land Lawrence and Moehrig in the first round.


26. Cleveland Browns Cleveland Browns helmet

Selection: Christian Barmore – DL – Alabama

After the surprise release of Sheldon Richardson, beefing up the defensive line becomes a need for Cleveland. For the first time possibly ever, Cleveland is the real-deal and have one of the most complete rosters in football. As a Steeler fan it makes me nervous, but as a football fan, it makes me excited for this teams potential. Barmore will be a day one starter eating up blockers for guys like Mack Wilson and Sione Takitaki to come up and make plays.


27. Baltimore Ravens Baltimore Ravens logo

Selection: Azeez Ojulari – OLB – Georgia

With the departures of Yannick Ngakoue and Matt Judon in Free Agency, adding a Pass Rusher should be priority number one for GM Eric DeCosta. Ojulari is best as a stand-up Outside Linebacker and fits the Ravens scheme perfectly.


28. New Orleans Saints New Orleans Saints logo

Selection: Zaven Collins – LB – Tulsa

The Saints may have had the biggest roster turnover amongst NFL teams this off-season. Kwon Alexander was released and Demario Davis isn’t getting any younger, which makes Linebacker a top priority for the Saints. Zaven Collins is a grown man and can cover sideline to sideline.


29. Green Bay Packers Green Bay Packers logo

Selection: Kadarius Toney – WR – Florida

As I’ve said before, the Packers drastically need to give Aaron Rodgers some weapons. A true number two option beside Devante Adams may be exactly what the Packers need to get over the hump. Toney may be the shiftiest player in this years Draft. He may drop a pass here and there but adding him to the lineup will take some of the Defensive attention away from Devante Adams.


30. Buffalo Bills Buffalo Bills logo

Selection: Gregory Rousseau – DE – Miami

Gregory Rousseau remains as my top EDGE rusher but I think he might fall a bit. Luckily for Buffalo, he falls right into their laps. Buffalo already has one of the best Secondary’s and  Linebacker groups in the NFL. Adding a top-tier pass rusher will help take their defense to the next level.


31. Baltimore Ravens (via Kansas City) Baltimore Ravens logo

Selection: Terrace Marshall Jr – WR – LSU

After the recent trade with Kansas City, Baltimore finds themselves back in the first-round. With the addition of Ojulari, Baltimore shifts their focus to the Offensive side of the ball. Adding a true number one receiver and giving Lamar a weapon is exactly what they do here.


*TRADE*

32. Detroit Lions (via Tampa Bay)

Selection: Teven Jenkins – OT – Oklahoma State

Every year we see a team trade into the back-end of the first-round. Tampa Bay has their entire team returning and trading out is the most logical move for them. Detroit is able to move up and snag Teven Jenkins before someone beats them to it. Jenkins is a physical blocker and putting him on the opposite side of Taylor Decker will create a great Offensive Line to build upon.

Pupo’s Mock Draft 5.0 – Part 1 (Rounds 1 and 2)

photo credit: dailysnark.com

The time has come! We are less than 24 hours away, until Round 1 kicks off. It’s finally here. After months and months of preparation, teams, and the Draft community, are ready for the Draft. Here is my final Mock Draft. Rounds 3-7, will be posted tomorrow afternoon. I hope you enjoy the Draft, and I hope you enjoy my final Mock Draft!

  1. Jacksonville = Trevor Lawrence (Jr) QB – Clemson
  • The fact that Urban Meyer was up-front at Lawrence’s pro day says it all. I wouldn’t be surprised at all, If Lawrence was studying the Jaguars playbook, once the Jags found out they had the first overall pick. It would be a surprise, if he’s not a superstar.

2. New York Jets = Zach Wilson (Jr) QB – BYU

  • If you still don’t know what BYU stands for, then you don’t follow the Draft close enough. The worst-kept secret of this Draft, is the Jets love Wilson. Wilson becomes the new face of the franchise in The Big Apple.

3. San Francisco (from Houston via Miami) = Justin Fields (Jr) QB – Ohio State

  • I’m just not buying all this Mac Jones and Trey Lance talk here. Fields is just too good of a talent to pass up. Even if Jimmy Garoppolo starts the season, it won’t be long until Fields is handed the keys of the franchise. I wouldn’t be surprised if Fields leads the 49ers to a Super Bowl title.

4. Atlanta = Trey Lance (RSo) QB – North Dakota State

  • Matt Ryan will be 36 next month, and this is a great opportunity to land his successor here. Lance is a great fit in new Head Coach Arthur Smith’s Offense. Lance might need some time to get acclimated to the NFL, and he would get that chance while sitting behind Matt Ryan, taking over for him, in year 2 or 3.

5. Cincinnati = Penei Sewell (Jr) OT – Oregon

  • Chase and Burrow would be lethal together, just like they were at LSU, but protecting Burrow is more important. Sewell is the best Tackle in this Draft, and maybe the best to come out in the past decade. Sewell would help keep Burrow upright in the pocket.

6. Miami (from Philadelphia) = Ja’Marr Chase (Jr) WR – LSU

  • Miami needs to provide Tua with more weapons, in order for him to have more success. Chase’s decision to opt out, may have improved his Draft stock. Tua and Chase would be one of the best QB/WR combos for years to come.

7. Detroit = DeVonta Smith (Sr) WR – Alabama

  • The Lions could take a Quarterback here, but new GM Brad Holmes was with Jared Goff in Los Angeles, I don’t see them going in that direction. Kenny Golladay, and Marvin Jones are both out the door, and help is needed. Smith has a chance to be the best Receiver in Football.

8. Carolina = Kyle Pitts (Jr) TE – Florida

  • I could see them taking Mac Jones here, but ultimately I think they will pass on a Quarterback. Providing Darnold with a player like Pitts, would do wonders for Darnold’s game. Tight Ends like Pitts, don’t come around very often.

9. Denver = Rashawn Slater (Sr) OT/G – Northwestern

  • With the top 4 Quarterbacks off the Board, the Broncos elect to pass on Mac Jones, and help strengthen their Offensive Line. This is a make or break year for Drew Lock, and he needs to be better protected. If Slater can’t hold up at Tackle, they can slide him inside to Guard, to help protect Lock.

10. Dallas = Patrick Surtain II (Jr) CB – Alabama

  • That Dallas Secondary was just awful last year, and they need help. Surtain, would instantly give that Secondary a much-needed boost. Surtain and Diggs, would form a nice Cornerback tandem, just like they were at Alabama.

11. New York Giants = Jaylen Waddle (Jr) WR – Alabama

  • Along with Drew Lock, this is a make or break year for Daniel Jones. They signed Kenny Golladay, but more help is needed. Waddle might have the biggest upside, of all the Alabama WR’s, to come out in recent memory.

12. Philadelphia (from San Francisco via Miami) = Micah Parsons (Jr) LB – Penn State

  • Many are giving the Eagles a Corner here, but they can address that, on Day 2. You can’t pass up a player like Parsons still on the Board. He would be the new leader and signal caller, on that Eagles Defense. Parsons has all of the tools teams look for, in a modern Linebacker.

13. Los Angeles Chargers = Christian Darrisaw (Jr) OT – Virginia Tech

  • Protecting Justin Herbert, needs to be the teams main focal point this offseason. Darrisaw is one of the most sound Tackles in this Draft, and would help keep Herbert upright.

14. Minnesota = Alijah Vera-Tucker (RJr) OT/G – USC

  • A Edge rusher is needed, but Kirk Cousins, needs to be better protected, and that takes priority. Vera-Tucker can start on the outside. If he struggles, they can move him inside. Either at Tackle or Guard, Vera-Tucker should carve out a nice career.

15. New England = Mac Jones (RJr) QB – Alabama

  • Nobody wants to see Mac Jones go to the Patriots, and they would be even more mad, if he falls right into their lap. Jones becomes the new face of the franchise.

16. Arizona = Jaycee Horn (Jr) CB – South Carolina

  • Even if Patrick Patterson was still their, another CB would be needed. Horn is a physical CB, who just might have the highest upside of any CB in this Draft.

17. Las Vegas = Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah (RJr) LB/S – Notre Dame

  • The Raiders need help along the second level of their Defense. Owusu-Koramoah would provide immediate help, and would be the new leader of that Raiders Defense.

18. Miami = Gregory Rousseau (RSo) EDGE – Miami

  • The Dolphins need more help along their Defensive Line. They can slide Wilkins inside, and let Rousseau rush from the outside. Rousseau, Wilkins, and Davis, would form a nice tandem.

19. Washington = Zaven Collins (RJr) LB – Tulsa

  • Washington could go WR here, but this WR class is so deep, they can select one on Day 2. They do need a stud Linebacker, and Collins fills that bill. Washington now, has one of the best front 7’s in Football.

20. Chicago = Teven Jenkins (RSr) OT – Oklahoma State

  • The Bears will need to protect Andy Dalton, and their future franchise Quarterback. They can start Jenkins on the left, and if he struggles, they can move him to right side, where he played the majority of his time in Stillwater.

21. Indianapolis = Kwity Paye (Sr) EDGE – Michigan

  • The Colts have a gaping hole at LT, with the retirement of Anthony Castonzo. With the Tackle class being deep, they can address that later in the Draft. More Edge rush help is needed. Paye is a raw, but he has the upside to be a star.

22. Tennessee = Jaelan Phillips (RJr) EDGE – Miami

  • The Titans need help on the Edge. Denio Autry can be upgraded, and Harold Landry has disappointed. Phillips can step in and start right away, and provide help immediately.

23. New York Jets (from Seattle) = Caleb Farley (RJr) CB – Virginia Tech

  • With Farley having back surgery recently, that pushes him down the Board, and his fall stops here. Farley would instantly be the teams new #1 CB, and would anchor that Secondary.

24. Pittsburgh = Najee Harris (Sr) RB – Alabama

  • James Conner is out the door, and Benny Snell isn’t a bell cow back. Harris has a lot of similarities to former Steeler Le’Veon Bell. He fits in perfectly, with the Steelers physicality.

25. Jacksonville (from Los Angeles Rams) = Alex Leatherwood (Sr) OT/G – Alabama

  • What happens when you select a new franchise Quarterback? You protect him! They can move Cam Robinson to Guard, and let Leatherwood protect Lawrence’s blind side.

26. Cleveland = Christian Barmore (RSo) DT – Alabama

  • The Browns don’t have many weaknesses, but they could strengthen the interior of their Defensive Line. Barmore might not start right away, but it won’t be long, until he earns a starting spot.

27. Baltimore = Jalen Mayfield (RSo) OT – Michigan

  • With the Ravens shipping Orlando Brown to the Chiefs, they need to get a replacement. Mayfield played mostly RT at Michigan, and he can stay their, with Ronnie Stanley manning the left side.

28. New Orleans = Jayson Oweh (RSo) EDGE – Penn State

  • Cameron Jordan is getting up their in age, and they can use another pass rusher. Oweh didn’t register a sack last season, but the right coaching staff, can unlock Oweh’s potential.

29. Green Bay = Azeez Ojulari (RSo) EDGE – Georgia

  • I would be surprised, if the Packers draft a WR here. They haven’t drafted one in the first, since 2002. They need help along their Defensive front. Ojulari would start right away, and would make an immediate impact.

30. Buffalo = Joe Tryon (RJr) EDGE – Washington

  • Jerry Hughes, and Mario Addison are aging. Tryon can start off as a situational pass rusher, and then would be a starter, at some point during next season.

31. Baltimore (from Kansas City) = Rashod Bateman (Jr) WR – Minnesota

  • Lamar Jackson could use another weapon to throw to. Bateman would be a nice fit, in that Ravens Offense.

32. Tampa Bay = Carlos Basham Jr. (RSr) EDGE – Wake Forest

  • The Bucs biggest need is Edge rusher. Basham would start right away, and make an immediate impact.
