Carl Lawson: EDGE (Franchise Tag)

Joe Thuney: OG, New England Patriots

1st Round: JaMarr Chase: WR, LSU

2nd round: Jalen Mayfield: OT, Michigan

3rd Round: Aaron Robinson: CB, UCF

4th Round: Jordan Smith: EDGE, UAB

5th Round: Shi Smith: WR, South Carolina

6th Round: Tariq Thompson: S, San Diego State

7th Round: Quintin Morris: TE, Bowling Green

7th Round: Elijah Mitchell: RB, Louisiana

Grade: A

The main goal was to protect the franchise in Joe Burrow and that box can be checked off with the addition of Thuney and Mayfield. Also reuniting him with his playmaker at LSU in Chase, add in Shi Smith with his jitterbug after the catch playmaking ability and there is an instant upgrade to the weapons on offense. They then turn their eyes to fortifying a suspect defense with reinforcement to the back end with Robinson and Thompson who are aggressive and playmakers, while adding a freakishly athletic pass rusher in Jordan Smith to grow behind Hubbard and Lawson. In the final rounds they add quality depth in Morris and Mitchell to the running back and tight end groups respectively.


Matt Milano: LB, Buffalo Bills

Anthony Harris: S, Minnesota Vikings

Marcus Lattimore: CB, New Orleans Saints (Trade)

1st Round: Azeez Ojulari: EDGE, Georgia

2nd Round: Shaun Wade: CB, Ohio State

3rd Round: Dyami Brown: WR, North Carolina

4th Round: Marvin Wilson: DT, Florida State

4th Round: Adrian Ealy: OT, Oklahoma

6th Round: Bryce Hargrove: OG, Pittsburgh

7th Round: Miller Forristall: TE, Alabama

Grade: A-

One of the biggest weaknesses on the 2020 Browns was the secondary and that need was addressed at the forefront with the free agent acquisition of Anthony Harris, and then trading for Marhson Lattimore to play opposite of Denzel Ward. They also upgrade their linebacker corps by signing Milano from Buffalo, to help on the second wave of the defense with his coverage ability and leadership. Getting some pass-rush help opposite Myles Garrett was the next priority and they secured one of the best pass-rushers in the first round in Ojulari. They then hit value picks throughout the mid-rounds of the draft from Wade to play nickel corner to a young playmaker like Brown to learn under OBJ’s tutelage and a mammoth defensive lineman in Wilson to add up front. They may have reached a little on their later round picks but they represent scheme fits who fit specific roles.


Yannick Ngakoue: EDGE (Franchise Tag)

A.J. Green: WR, Cincinnati Bengals

Justin Houston: EDGE, Indianapolis Colts

Christian Kirk: WR, Arizona Cardinals (Trade)

Isaiah Wilson: OT, Tennessee Titans (Trade)

4th Round: Patrick Johnson: EDGE, Tulane

5th Round: Marquez Stevenson: WR, Houston

5th Round: Khyiris Tonga: DT, BYU

5th Round: Brenden Jaimes: OG/OT, Nebraska

7th Round: Chris Evans: RB, Michigan

Grade: A

Baltimore will retool this offseason with their eyes on a Lombardi in 2021, after a disappointing end to last year. They hit every weak spot on their to-do list. First, they retain Ngakoue and then add a stud edge rusher opposite of him in Justin Houston. Next, they look to add more firepower on offense by signing former AFC North foe A.J. Green and then flip disgruntled Marquise Brown for the talented Christian Kirk. They add outstanding value in Bateman with the pick they obtained from the Orlando Brown Jr. trade to Jacksonville. The Ravens made some bold moves to fortify their offensive line by taking a flier on the talented but mercurial, Isaiah Wilson and then pulling the trigger on the best center in the draft in Dickerson. Great value was added here to help offset some of their key losses. Overall, they come out with a well-rounded draft class, to go along with a formidable free agent class.


Jason Peters: OT, Philadelphia Eagles

6th Round: John Bates: TE, Boise State

7th Round: D’Angelo Amos: S, Virginia

7th Round: Wyatt Huber: EDGE, Kansas State

Grade: B+

After getting ‘Big Ben’ back for one last ride with a restructured contract, the Steelers brass tried to put together the best possible roser to compete in 2021. They re-signed a few of their own players but more importantly, they landed Jason Peters to protect Roethlisberger’s blindside for his last ride. As they turn to the draft, Pittsburgh usually tries to fill many of their holes ahead of time. This season, due to salary cap impingements, the team will need to fix their run game. That is why after their main target (Najee Harris) is off the board, a handful of picks are then traded, in order to move back and acquire additional selections, including the consolation prize of Williams. They then turned their attention to securing a playmaker in the secondary with Molden after losing standout Mike Hilton to the Packers in free agency. The theme during their mid-round selections focused on unique athletic profiled players such as Smith, who can sit behind Peters for a year before taking over at left tackle. Eskridge brings a playmaking ability outside, inside and also in the return game. Tremble fits perfectly into what they ask of their tight ends from a blocking standpoint. The biggest steal is Green, who has experience playing all positions of the interior offensive line. He fits well with what they want out of the pivot and gets a chance to come in and take over Maurkice Pouncey’s (retirement) starting role.



Bud Dupree: EDGE, Pittsburgh Steelers

Alejandro Villanueva: LT, Pittsburgh Steelers

T.Y. Hilton: WR (Resigned)

Zach Ertz: TE, Philadelphia Eagles (Trade)

1st Round: Dillon Radunz: OT, North Dakota State

3rd Round: Keith Taylor: CB, Washington

4th Round: Israel Mukuamu: CB/S, South Carolina

5th Round: Tyler Vaughns: WR, USC

6th Round: Chauncey Gholston: DT, Iowa

6th Round: D.J. Daniel: CB, Georgia

7th Round: Connor Wedington: WR, Stanford

Grade: B

After acquiring Carson Wentz to be their starting quarterback, the Colts turned their attention to a few other spots where they were void of talent. Their answer for Anthony Castonzo’s retirement was to bring in Alejandro Villanueva to play left tackle. That was not the only former Steelers player they brought onto the roster, as they secured edge rusher Bud Dupree to bring his well-rounded game to Indianapolis and wreak havoc along with DeForest Buckner. They re-signed fan favorite Hilton so that he can retire with the Colts and traded for one of Wentz’s favorite targets from Philadelphia in Zach Ertz. As far as the draft is concerned, they took small school offensive lineman Radunz in the first round, who has the makeup and physical traits to eventually take over at left tackle. In the mid-rounds, general manager Chris Ballard continued to overhaul the secondary with three picks, headlined by Taylor, who is a lanky corner that could step in to replace Xavier Rhodes who departed via free agency. Vaughns is a savvy wide out who could endear himself to Wentz and could be the steal of this class if he is able to maximize his Keenan Allen-type upside.


Trey Burton: TE, Indianapolis Colts

Melvin Ingram: EDGE, LA Chargers

Orlando Brown Jr.: LT, Baltimore Ravens (Trade)

Brandon Williams: NT, Baltimore Ravens (Trade)

1st Round: Trevor Lawrence: QB, Clemson

1st Round: Ifeatu Melifonwu: CB, Syracuse

2nd Round: Pat Freiermuth: TE, Penn State

3rd Round: Amari Rodgers: WR, Clemson

4th Round: Marlon Tuipulotu: DT, USC

4th Round: Jonathan Cooper: EDGE, Ohio State

5th Round: Javian Hawkins: RB, Louisville

7th Round: Frank Darby: WR, Arizona State

7th Round: Victor Dimukeje: EDGE, Duke

Grade: A

New head coach Urban Meyer makes a splash during his first stint in the NFL with trades to acquire up front hog-mollies such as Orlando Brown Jr. on offense and Brandon Williams on an aggressive defense, which already features the versatile Melvin Ingram. The Jaguars should get an ‘A’ based on the selection of Trevor Lawrence, as he is truly a franchise-altering quarterback talent. Jacksonville follows up the Lawrence selection with Draft Bible favorite, Melifonwu, who has everything you could ask for in a lockdown corner. Their second and third round selections are outstanding, as they get one of the best dual-threat tight ends in the class with Freiermuth and Amari Rodgers, a favorite of Lawrence while at Clemson. With their mid-round selections, Meyer was able to secure one of his former recruits at Ohio State in Cooper, who should be able to carve out a situational pass rushing role early on.


Teddy Bridgewater: QB (Trade)

Donte Jackson: CB (Trade)

Yetur Gross-Matos: EDGE (Trade)

1st Round: Mac Jones: QB, Alabama

3rd Round: Trey Smith: OG, Tennessee

6th Round: Shawn Davis: S, Florida

6th Round: Ambry Thomas: CB, Michigan

6th Round: Robert Jones: OG, Middle Tennessee

7th Round: Racey McMath: WR, LSU

Grade: C-

Houston, we have a problem! With the fingerprints of front office executive Jack Easterby all over the Texans' blueprint, it’s wild to think what direction the Texans could head in. In this scenario, they finally grant quarterback Deshaun Watson his wish and ship him out of conference to the Panthers. Houston obtains a slew of picks in return, in addition to stop-gap signal-caller Teddy Bridgewater, plus a talented cover corner (Jackson) and a young pass rusher (Gross-Matos). They also nab their quarterback of the future in Jones, who new general manager Nick Caserio hopes could be his new Tom Brady. Next, they turn their focus on improving the offensive line by selecting the girthy Smith and savvy Morrisey, to help keep their quarterback upright. Houston also brings in a big-bodied playmaker in Collins to compliment Brandin Cooks and supplement David Johnson. With the rest of their picks, the Texans add speed and playmaking ability to a defense in desperate need of it, while sprinkling in some quality depth on offense.


Deatrich Wise Jr.: EDGE, New England Patriots

Desmond King: NCB (Resigned)

Jonnu Smith: TE (Franchise Tag)

1st Round: Gregory Rousseau: EDGE, Miami (Fl.)

4th Round: Jacoby Stevens: S/LB, LSU

5th Round: Janarius Robinson: EDGE, Florida State

6th Round: Josh Palmer: WR, Tennessee

6th Round: Jose Borregales: K, Miami (Fl.)

6th Round: Tristen Hoge: C/OG, BYU

Grade: A

The Titans had a giant hole at edge rusher through the duration of the 2020 season and need to address it this offseason. In this offseason mock, they did so by adding versatile pass-rusher Wise from New England, while also adding two freakishly gifted pass-rushers in Rousseau and Robinson that should help inject some juice getting to the quarterback. Vrabel was also able to secure the services of one of his former teammate's sons in Asante Samuel Jr., who plays with a similar skill-set as his dad. The Patriots were able to get amazing value in the middle rounds with a starting caliber offense tackle in Eichenberg, along with dynamic pass-catchers in Moore and Palmer to supplement A.J. Brown, plus a versatile dimebacker in Stevens. They also drafted a kicker in Borreaglaes, who should get a chance to buoy the woes they have faces over the past several seasons.



Chris Carson: RB, Seattle Seahawks

Kawaan Short: DT, Carolina Panthers

Jon Feliciano: C/OG (Resigned)

Darryl Williams: RT (Resigned)

Will Hernandez: OG, NY Giants (Trade)

1st Round: Greg Newsome II: CB, Northwestern

2nd Round: Jamin Davis: LB, Kentucky

3rd Round: Rashad Weaver: EDGE, Pittsburgh

5th Round: Zech McPhearson: CB, Texas Tech

6th Round: Cary Angeline: TE, N.C. State

7th Round: Dazz Newsome: WR, North Carolina

Grade: B

The Bills go into this offseason fresh off a season where Josh Allen established himself as one of the best quarterbacks in the league, while not having much to speak of in a run game to help him out. That changes with the addition of Chris Carson, who gives this offense an identity running the ball, while letting guys like Singletary and Moss evolve as key role players, rather than being lead-dog type runners. They also retain key offensive piecessuch as Williams and Feliciano, who really solidified this offensive line last season, while also acquiring the massively talented Hernandez to play offensive guard and shift Feliciano to center. McDermott brings in one of his favorite players from Carolina in Short, who can hopefully motivate Ed Oliver to the next level. As far as the draft, Buffalo added some high upside players early in Newsome II from Northwestern and Jamin Davis from Kentucky, both of whom have a shot of starting early on in their careers. Their mid-to-late round picks have high character and upside but will need to find specific roles on this playoff caliber team, or else they will need to develop on the practice squad.


JuJu Smith-Schuster: WR, Pittsburgh Steelers

David Andrews: C, New England Patriots

1st Round: Penei Sewell: OT, Oregon

1st Round: Najee Harris: RB, Alabama

2nd Round: Joe Tryon: EDGE, Washington

2nd Round: Christian Barmore: DT, Alabama

3rd Round: Dylan Moses: LB, Alabama

4th Round: Ta’Quon Graham: DT, Texas

6th Round: K.J. Britt: LB, Auburn

Grade: A

The Dolphins are a tough-minded team that embodies their head coach. With that in mind, they bring in a young pass-catcher to grow along with Tua in Smith-Schuster. He is everything that this offense was lacking in 2020, a sure-set of hands with a grizzled mentality. They also pluck former Patriots pivot man Andrews to sure up the center position, while then selecting the massively talented Sewell with the third pick of the draft. With Austin Jackson receiving a lot of playing time at left tackle last year, they could leave him at that spot, while slotting in Sewell at right tackle, which is Tagovailoa’s blindside. Hunt would then kick inside to battle it out with Flowers and Kindley at guard. After all of those dominoes fall into place, you have the makings of an outstanding offensive line unit. They backup the pick by getting the best running back in the draft in Harris, who will help establish an identity on offense, one where you will get punched in the mouth and run over. During the course of the draft, Miami takes top value time and again, with the remainder of the selections being able to play a high percentage of snaps or be a valuable special teams asset.


Marcus Maye: S (Franchise Tag)

3rd Round: Payton Turner: EDGE, Houston

4th Round: Garrett Wallow: LB, TCU

5th Round: Ar’Darius Washington S/NCB, TCU

6th Round: Ihmir Smith-Marsette: WR, Iowa

Grade: A

With a new head coach comes a fresh start and that begins by washing your hands of a quarterback whom you inherited. Saleh and Douglas decide to trade Sam Darnold to the 49ers in a shrewd move that helps them land another pick inside the top 12 selections. This allows them to be aggressive in free agency by signing players such as Sherman, Judon, Fuller V and Thomas to help fortify this team to a winning standard. New York is smitten with the playmaking ability and moxie of Zach Wilson. With their second pick they take Vera-Tucker, who has All-Pro caliber upside and experience playing guard or tackle. The Jets then add offensive weapons Etienne in the second and Moore in the third. In the middle rounds, they bring in reinforcements to the defensive side of the ball and take a swing at another dynamic playmaker in the sixth.

6th Round: Riley Patterson: K, Memphis

7th Round: K.J. Costello: QB, Stanford

Grade: B

Bill Belichick’s record outside of his time with Tom Brady is nothing to write home about and after seeing Brady hoist a Lombardi without him, you can be sure he is aware of what people are saying about his legacy. That is why he does everything in his power to go and get the quarterback he never wanted to trade in Garoppolo. New England finally agrees to a swap of Stephon Gilmore and Garoppolo, plus additional picks. Belichick then goes about supplementing his barren roster with proven players in free agency among the likes of Tomlinson, Samuel and Henry to name a few. The Patriots tend to draft players who fit their specific profiles, even more so than production. They add versatile pass-rusher Paye in the first round and then trade up for interior offensive lineman Humphrey. Throughout the draft they pick up players with supreme intangibles and effort, even if they may not be the best athletes.



Justin Simmons: S (Franchise Tag)

Ryan Fitzpatrick: QB, Miami Dolphins

Xavier Rhodes: CB, Indianapolis Colts

Shelby Harris: DT (Resigned)

1st Round: Micah Parsons: LB, Penn State

6th Round: Brady Davis: QB, Illinois State

7th Round: Pooka Williams: RB, Kansas

7th Round: Mustafa Johnson: DT, Colorado

7th Round: Chandon Herring: OL, BYU

Grade: B+

New general manager George Paton isn’t entirely sold on Drew Lock being their starter, so they bring in ‘Fitzmagic’ to help push Lock in training camp. They also secure a lockdown corner in Rhodes, who can help erase the memory of A.J. Buoye’s play last year, while also helping out some of the younger corners along the way. Denver retains two of their key defense stalwarts in Simmons and Harris, which will be good for team morale. After trading back a few years ago when they could have taken Devin Bush, the Broncos don’t make the same mistake twice and select their stud linebacker, after trading down with the Seahawks. Parsons possesses the highest upside of any defensive player in this draft class and could be a star in Vic Fangio’s defense. They follow that pick up with another young offensive lineman for Mike Munchak to mold in Jenkins, who could be a pro-bowl caliber offensive tackle. Togiai has tremendous strength and run stuffing prowess, while Hamlin can wear many hats and be a key cog in a successful defense.


Leonard Floyd: EDGE, LA Rams

John Johnson III: S, LA Rams

O.J. Howard: TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Trade)

1st Round: Christian Darrisaw: OT, Virginia Tech

2nd Round: Kelvin Joseph: CB, Kentucky

3rd Round: Aaron Banks: OG, Notre Dame

3rd Round: Josh Myers: C, Ohio State

4th Round: Jaylen Twyman: DT, Pittsburgh

5th Round: Tutu Atwell: WR, Louisville

6th Round: Jason Pinnock: CB, Pittsburgh

7th Round: Nick Eubanks: TE, Michigan

Grade: A-

After hitting on their franchise quarterback Justin Herbert last year, new head coach Brandon Staley and general manager Tom Telesco have an enormous window of opportunity to capitalize on. They add some familiar faces to Staley in Floyd and Johnson III from the Rams and then bring in the dynamic tight end Howard, who can help replace Hunter Henry. In the draft they look early and often to fortify the offensive line to help keep Herbert upright. The Chargers take burly and athletic Darrisaw in the first, along with two solid interior offensive lineman in Banks and Myers back-to-back in the third. Staley also targets Twyman in the fourth at the behest of his former player, Aaron Donald, who tips him to this young stud's pass rushing-ability from the interior of the defense. Snapping up Atwell in the fifth may be the steal of this draft due to his dynamic playmaking ability and pure speed.


Aldon Smith: EDGE, Dallas Cowboys

Austin Reiter: C (Resigned)

1st Round: Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah: LB/S, Notre Dame

2nd Round: Quinn Meinerz: C/OG, Wisconsin-Whitewater

4th Round: Rodarius Williams: CB, Oklahoma State

5th Round: Kenny Yeboah: TE, Ole Miss

5th Round: Robert Rochell: CB, Central Arkansas

7th Round: Kobe Jones: EDGE, Mississippi State

Grade: B+

After another Super Bowl appearance, the core of the Chief's young players remains under contract. This franchise is just in need of a few tweaks, in order to get back to the promise-land. Kansas City lands the mercurial Aldon Smith, who reestablished himself as a pass-rushing force in Dallas last year. They also retained one of their key free agents in Reiter, who has been a solid pivot man since taking over. In the draft they target players to help supplement specific roles and places where they lacked depth. Owusu-Koramoah is a Swiss-Army-Knife defensive weapon that will help suppress plays on the second level of the field. They take one of the best interior offensive lineman in Meinerz, who has the versatility to start at either guard or center. Keep an eye on St. Brown, who is a savvy player and knows how to separate; he could become one of Mahomes’ favorite targets early on in his career. Kobe Jones is an ascending player who has a firm understanding of how to get home to the quarterback and hails from a program in Mississippi State that has had success before.

5th Round: Adetokunbo Ogundeji: EDGE, Notre Dame

6th Round: Ian Book: QB, Notre Dame

7th Round: Jordan Scott: DT, Oregon

Grade: B

Jon Gruden has largely treaded water since re-taking reins of the Raiders. This offseason presents a difficult challenge, as there are some glaring holes on his roster. Reinforcement on defense is much-needed and addressed with ball-hawk Marcus Williams, along with high-motored pass-rusher Trey Hendrickson to play opposite of Maxx Crosby. The legend of Patrick Peterson can help some of the younger defensive backs gain confidence. Zaven Collins projects as a difference-maker at the next level. In the second round, Las Vegas selected underrated playmaker Terrace Marshall Jr., who should be able to fit the production they had envisioned for Tyrell Williams. After cutting Gabe Jackson, don’t be surprised if Mike Mayock goes back to one of his favorite programs in Clemson to pluck Carman. They already have a highly valuable running back in Josh Jacobs but the opportunity to add dynamo Gainwell to this backfield is too good to pass up.

Grade: A

Ryan Pace may just win Executive of the Year as he pryed Russell Wilson away from Seattle in a blockbuster trade, which also saw them land Tyler Lockett and Quandre Diggs in the haul. The salary cap will need to be manipulated with some extensions and restructures but the quality of talent on this roster with Wilson under center has them right on the precipice of a Super Bowl run. They also signed burly veteran Gabe Jackson to lead the offensive line and added big-bodied wide out Corey Davis to ease the loss of Allen Robinson. With the rest of their picks left after the Wilson trade, the Bears reinforce the defense with a pair of talented defensive lineman, a huge cornerback that transitioned from wide receiver, an instinctive safety, a versatile offensive lineman and a tall, athletic pass-catcher in Fehoko, who Wilson will try to get to emulate his former freakish outside wide out D.K. Metcalf.

5th Round: Ben Mason: FB, Michigan

Grade: A-

Dan Campbell brings an infectious personality and blue collar work ethic to this post in Detroit and he is tasked with trying to stay competitive, while also building for the long term. The Lions already secured their starting quarterback in Jared Goff and they need to surround him with some weapons; retaining Golladay and drafting Waddle accomplishes that. The defense has been ravaged by inconsistency and players leaving town. Detroit brings in two versatile defenders in Browning and Nasirildeen, plus a powerful defensive tackle in Tufele and an established pass-rusher in Patrick Jones. They also bring in some of Campbell’s patented attitude with Mason, who will soon become a fan favorite in Detroit.

Grade: A

Aaron Rodgers used last year’s offseason as motivation to help him win the MVP in the 2020 season. What is in store for this team in 2021? There aren’t many holes, Gutekunst and LaFleur use free agency as patchwork with wide out Marvin Jones, coverage linebacker Jayon Brown and the playmaking nickel corner Mike Hilton. Going into the draft, Green Bay needs more weapons outside of Adams and Jones, so they trade up for Kadarius Toney who will be the slot receiver they have sorely lacked since the departure of Randall Cobb. The Packers add the electrifying Carter to supplement the hammer, A.J. Dillon. Later, they add a pair of versatile big bodies in MIlton Williams and Hainsey, plus a valuable outside corner in Adebo. Green Bay adds an additional vertical threat in Surratt and then a run-stuffing boulder in Merrill to help solidify their overall depth.

7th Round: Derrick Barnes: LB, Purdue

Grade: B+

Without much in the way of cap space the Vikings front office needs to focus on the draft and Rick Spielman has a way of picking quality players. This year is no different, as he foresees Justin Fields dropping in this mock, he starts making calls to teams in need of quarterbacks and finds a trade partner in Washington. After trading back, Minnesota takes a shot on explosive pass-rusher Jaelan Phillps, who has been a game-wrecker when on the field but also has some red flags on the medical side. The Vikings are able to pick up their left tackle of the future in Little, who is somewhat a forgotten man since we haven’t seen him on a field in over a year. Spielman strikes again with the selection of Wallace, who may have the strongest hands in the draft, while plucking Sterns, Toney and the big-armed Newman in the later rounds. Snowden could be a poor man’s Anthony Barr, while, Hubbard owns great upside and stills add excellent depth.

7th Round: Dru Chrisman, Ohio State

Grade: B

After hoisting the Lombardi, sometimes it is hard to get motivated for the offseason but that is not the case in Tampa. The organization has a lot of work to do, in order to retain a number of key players to their Super Bowl run. The current regime of Jason Licht and Bruce Arians keep an eye on long-term sustainability with this draft, as they select players like the supremely athletic Spencer Brown, who will sit behind Donovan Smith for a year and then take over when he is due to hit free agency in 2022. Oweh is a talented and athletic pass-rusher who can sit and learn behind Barrett and JPP for a year. Odeyingbo, who suffered an Achilles injury can be eased back in with the upside of being an impact player late in 2021 or in 2022. Felton is a versatile playmaker who can make plays out of the backfield or out in the slot and would be a welcomed addition on third downs in a James White type role. The late round picks all have growth potential.


1st Round: Kyle Pitts: TE, Florida

2nd Round: Richie Grant: S, UCF

3rd Round: Davis Mills: QB, Stanford

4th Round: Rhamondre Stevenson: RB, Oklahoma

5th Round: Daelin Hayes: EDGE, Notre Dame

5th Round: Tyree Gillespie: S, Missouri

5th Round: Dylan Soehner: TE, Iowa State

6th Round: Cornell Powell: WR, Clemson

6th Round: Foster Sarell: OT, Stanford

Grade: B+

Many media pundits are trying to force the post Matt Ryan/Julio Jones era but Falcons brass are going to pump the brakes on that. This roster is not that far off of being competitive if the right moves are made through the draft, as they have little in cap space. New general manager Terry Fontenot and head coach Arthur Smith will look to maximize every pick they can to make this offense explosive, while getting the defense out of mediocrity. They surprise the entire football world when they refuse to pick a quarterback in the first round and rather take the biggest offensive mismatch in the draft with Kyle Pitts. Atlanta then selects Richie Grant, who can start from day one and lend some solid play on the back end of this defense. They tab third round pick Davis Mills as the heir apparent to Ryan and with a similar skill-set, he is able to develop without having to be pressed into duty too early. After the Todd Gurley experiment failed they target Stevenson to pick up the majority of reps in the backfield with his powerful build. In the late rounds they add some much needed pass-rushing depth with Hayes, another solid safety in Gillespie, a blocking tight end in Soehner, an underrated pass catcher in Powell and a young developmental tackle in Sarell.


Taylor Moton: RT (Franchise Tag)

Gerald Everett: TE, LA Rams

Haason Reddick: EDGE, Arizona Cardinals

Larry Ogunjobi: DT, Cleveland Browns

Shaquill Griffin: CB, Seattle Seahawks

Deshaun Watson: QB (Trade)

Whitney Mercilus: EDGE (Trade)

2nd Round: Alex Leatherwood: OT, Alabama

4th Round: Tyson Campbell: CB, Georgia

5th Round: David Moore: OG, Grambling

5th Round: Jonathan Adams Jr.: WR, Arkansas State

6th Round: Anthony Schwartz: WR, Auburn

6th Round: Tay Gowan: CB, UCF

Grade: A+

Matt Rhule had a very successful first season as head coach of the Panthers. The team makes a franchise-altering trade in this mock by acquiring Watson, which instantly makes them Super Bowl contenders. Not only do they bring in a face of the franchise but they keep one of their young studs in Moton, while also supplementing the team with a dual-threat tight end and much-needed defensive reinforcements. With what they have left in draft capital, Carolina selects two stud offensive linemen in Leatherwood and the underrated Moore. They also pick up two outside corners in Campbell and Gowan, who have an outside chance of starting immediately. They round it out with two pass-catchers who have differing skill-sets in the big-bodied Adams Jr. and the explosive Schwartz.


Jameis Winston: QB (Resigned)

1st Round: Nick Bolton: LB, Missouri

2nd Round: Eric Stokes: CB, Georgia

3rd Round: Joseph Ossai: EDGE, Texas

3rd Round: James Hudson: OT, Cincinnati

3rd Round: Tyler Shelvin: DT, LSU

4th Round: Trey Sermon: RB, Ohio State

5th Round: Bobby Brown III: DT, Texas A&M

Grade: B

After being in the worst salary cap turmoil in the league, New Orleans had to make a number of cuts to veterans. Fortunately, they were able to re-sign both Winston and Hill to compete as starter. In the draft, they selected the uber-aggressive Bolton to help lead the defense for the next decade, while also replacing the recently traded Marshon Lattimore with Stokes. The Saints added an explosive pass-rusher in Ossai to replace Hendrickson, who left via free agency. Also looking ahead to 2022, Hudson can sit back and learn for a year before being pressed into duty. New Orleans secured two massively powerful defensive linemen in Shelvin and Brown III, both of whom can step into the defensive line rotation immediately. Sermon is a great backup who can spell Kamara in spurts.



K.J. Wright: LB, Seattle Seahawks

Keanu Neal: S, Atlanta Falcons

Dak Prescott: QB (Franchise Tag)

1st Round: Rashawn Slater: OL, Northwestern

2nd Round: Quincy Roche: EDGE, Miami (Fl.)

3rd Round: Osa Odighizuwa: DT, UCLA

3rd Round: Bryan Mills: CB, North Carolina Central

4th Round: Kyle Trask: QB, Florida

4th Round: Tre Brown: CB, Oklahoma

5th Round: Ben Skowronek: WR/TE, Notre Dame

6th Round: Justin Hilliard: LB, Ohio State

7th Round: Brady Breeze: S, Oregon

Grade: B+

The first order of business for Dallas is to make things right with Dak Prescott, the franchise tag forces his return but all signs point towards a long-term deal, eventually. By doing so, they free up some cap space to sign Wright, while also reuniting Neal with the coach who drafted him in Dan Quinn. The Cowboys stick to best player available in the first with Slater, which just so happens to fit a need, as they have had injury and age catch up to them on the offensive line. Dallas adds two explosive pass-rushers in Roche and Odighizuwa. They nab the backup to Prescott with their selection of Trask and then tack on two aggressive-minded corners in the late rounds with Mills and Brown. Skowronek can bulk up and move to tight end, while the talented but injury-riddled Hillard and special teams maven Breeze round out the draft.


Andy Dalton: QB, Dallas Cowboys

1st Round: Caleb Farley: CB, Virginia Tech

2nd Round: Trevon Moehrig: S, TCU

2nd Round: Ronnie Perkins: EDGE, Oklahoma

3rd Round: Cameron McGrone: LB, Michigan

5th Round: Kayode Awosika: OT, Buffalo

5th Round: Noah Gray: TE, Duke

6th Round: Gerrid Doaks: RB, Cincinnati

6th Round: James Wiggins: S, Cincinnati

7th Round: Paddy FIsher, LB, Northwestern

Grade: C+

After trading away Carson Wentz, general manager Howie Roseman has been adamant that he likes what he saw out of Jalen Hurts. He decides to give him a season to see if he can be the franchise quarterback, while bringing in competent backup Andy Dalton, who is familiar with the division. The Eagles then draft Farley, who possesses elite athleticism and traits of a shutdown corner; he is able to come in and start opposite of Darius Slay. Roseman doesn’t stop there with additions to a porous secondary, as he adds safety help in Moehrig and Wiggins. Philadelphia adds depth at linebacker in McGrone and FIsher, pass-rush help with Perkins, plus a power back in Doaks to pair with Miles Sanders.


Kyle Van Noy: LB, Miami Dolphins

Leonard Williams: DL (Resigned)

1st Round: DeVonta Smith: WR, Alabama

2nd Round: Alim McNeill: NT, N.C. State

3rd Round: Trill Williams: CB, Syracuse

4th Round: Khalil Herbert: RB, Virginia Tech

5th Round: Seth Williams: WR, Auburn

6th Round: Kylen Granson: TE, SMU

6th Round: Drew Dalman: C, Stanford

Grade: A-

Joe Judge had a solid first season implementing his systems in New York and now he has his team setup for long-term success. However, he will need more out of his young quarterback Daniel Jones. The Giants retain Leonard Williams on a long-term deal after he broke out last season. They also bring in Kyle Van Noy to help establish some stability in the second level. As far as the draft they have one of the best playmakers fall into their lap in DeVonta Smith aka the “Slim Reaper,” who will make a nice three-headed monster on an offense with Barkley and Jones. General manager Dave Gettleman selects one of his favorite positions in defensive tackle with McNeil, who can slide into the vacancy Dalvin Tomlinson left behind in free agency. Throughout the rest of the draft they add a long and aggressive defensive back in Williams, a playmaking running back in Herbert, an above the rim wide out in Williams, a pass-catching threat in Granson and an athletic pivot man in Dalman.

Washington Football Team

Cam Newton: QB, New England Patriots

Allen Robinson: WR, Chicago Bears

Brandon Scherff: OG (Resigned)

Ronald Darby: CB (Resigned)

1st Round: Justin Fields: QB, Ohio State

2nd Round: Samuel Cosmi: OT, Texas

3rd Round: Jabril Cox: LB, LSU

4th Round: Tre’ McKitty: TE, Georgia

5th Round: Talanoa Hufanga: S, USC

7th Round: Antonio Phillips: CB, Ball State

7th Round: William Bradley-King: EDGE, Baylor

Grade: B+

The Ron Rivera effect is in full swing, as he helped this franchise exceed expectations in year one by making the playoffs with the help of Alex Smith, who was released during the offseason. This paves the way for Rivera to reunite with his former quarterback Newton, who is nothing more than a short-term fix. Washington signed an alpha wide out to supplement Terry McLaurin, while re-signing Scherff, who has been a stalwart on their offensive line for a number of years, they also bring back Darby who was highly effective in 2020. When they see Fields start to tumble in this mock they decide it is time to move up and get their target. Not only do they get their next starter who can be eased into action with Newton under center in 2021 but they secure their next left tackle in Cosmi. They then pick up an exciting playmaking linebacker in Cox, an under-utlized pass catcher in McKitty, a versatile defender with great instincts in Hufanga, a lanky cover corner with ball skills in Phillips and a rotational pass rusher in Bradley-King late.



Alex Mack: C, Atlanta Falcons

Trent Williams: LT (Resigned)

Kyle Juszcyk: FB (Resigned)

Sam Darnold: QB, NY Jets (Trade)

Stephon Gilmore: CB, New England Patriots (Trade)

1st Round: Jaycee Horn: CB, South Carolina

4th Round: NaQuan Jones: DT, Michigan State

5th Round: Austin Watkins: WR, UAB

5th Round: Tarron Jackson: EDGE, Coastal Carolina

5th Round: Jack Anderson: OG, Texas Tech

5th Round: Kary Vincent Jr.: NCB, LSU

6th Round: Riley Cole: LB, South Alabama

7th Round: Cade Johnson: WR, South Dakota State

7th Round: Monty Rice: LB, Georgia

Grade: A

After being so close to winning a championship two seasons ago, this roster has been decimated by injuries and inconsistent play under center, thus sparking John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan to try a different approach. The 49ers made a trade with New England to ship Garoppolo back to the Patriots, while also getting shutdown cornerback Gilmore in return to take the place of Sherman. After taking a look at the quarterbacks in this draft, the team decides they are better off pulling the trigger on a deal with old friend Robert Salah, for Sam Darnold, who Shanahan holds in high regard. They also use the cap relief of the Garoppolo trade to retain Juszcyk and Williams, while also signing grizzled veteran Mack to play center. In the Darnold trade they agreed to swap first round picks with the Jets which puts them in the mid-first round range. San Francisco is able to pluck Jaycee Horn to form a formidable cornerback unit with Gilmore that will be able to shut down a lot of pass catchers in the NFC West. They add some needed pass-rushing help in the versatile Boogie Basham and powerful Tarron Jackson, while also adding high-upside, quality depth at multiple other positions.


Aaron Jones: RB, Green Bay Packers

William Jackson III: CB, Cincinnati Bengals

Larry Fitzgerald: WR (Resigned)

Marquise Brown: WR, Baltimore Ravens (Trade)

1st Round: Patrick Surtain II: CB, Alabama

2nd Round: Wyatt Davis: OG, Ohio State

3rd Round: Brevin Jordan: TE, Miami (Fl.)

5th Round: Shane Buechele: QB, SMU

Grade: A-

The Cardinals rang in the free agency madness by bringing J.J. Watt to the desert. General manager Steve Keim keeps that money flowing by reuniting running back Aaron Jones with his college coach Sean Kugler and bringing in lanky cover corner Jackson III to help supplement the roster. Kingsbury also coaxes Fitzgerald to come back for one more year with this all star cast and they flip Christian Kirk for Hollywood Brown, to reunite with his college quarterback Kyler Murray. With the limited resources they have in the draft, they secure a quality corner in Surtain to bookend with Jackson III. They then add some needed protection upfront in Davis from Ohio State. Tight end Brevin Jordan adds another dimension to this offense. Finally, they pick up a quarterback who is comfortable playing out of a spread offense, while also having the upside to have a Case Keenum-esque career.


2nd Round: Chazz Surratt: LB, North Carolina

3rd Round: Elerson Smith: EDGE, Northern Iowa

3rd Round: Kellen Mond: QB, Texas A&M

4th Round: Drake Jackson: C, Kentucky

6th Round: Jaelon Darden: WR, North Texas

7th Round: Joshuah Bledsoe: S, Missouri

Grade: B

After Sean McVay rid himself of Jared Goff and upgraded to Matthew Stafford there really wasn’t a lot of cap space to go out and add in free agency, so Les Snead and McVay had to make the most of the limited resources they have left from the litany of trades made to fill out their roster. They decided to attack the defense with both their second and third round picks in an ascending talent Surratt, who was a former quarterback that has quality play speed. The Rams secured Elerson Smith who really flashed his pass rushing prowess at the Senior Bowl; his upside is through the roof with his work ethic and athletic profile. They grab a developmental quarterback with athleticism in Mond to sit and learn behind Stafford. Jackson is a starting caliber center and Darden is a day three gem. Los Angeles finally adds a versatile, hard-hitting safety in Bledsoe to help soften the blow of John Johnson III leaving in free agency.


Alex Smith: QB, Washington Football Team

Leonard Fournette: RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Corey Linsley: C, Green Bay Packers

Jaylon Johnson: CB, Chicago Bears (Trade)

Anthony Miller: WR, Chicago Bears (Trade)

Akiem Hicks: DT, Chicago Bears (Trade)

1st Round: Trey Lance: QB, North Dakota State

2nd Round: Benjamin St. Juste: CB, Minnesota

4th Round: Divine Deablo: S, Virginia Tech

5th Round: Deonte Brown: OG, Alabama

6th Round: Thomas Graham Jr.: CB, Oregon

7th Round: Damonte Coxie: WR, Memphis

Grade: A-

The Seahawks brass of John Schneider and Pete Carroll finally had enough of the Russell Wilson shenanigans and decided it was best for both parties to move on. Thus, you see the litany of moving pieces in the blockbuster trade, as well as the subsequent moves in free agency. Seattle tries to stay competitive by bringing in 2020 NFL Comeback Player of the Year Alex Smith, while also trading up to get their next face of the franchise in Trey Lance. They bring in a high quality center in Linsley from Green Bay and the bulldozer running back that Carroll seems to covet in Fournette. Seattle then secures three playmaking additions to the secondary with the remaining picks in St. Juste, Deablo and Graham Jr while also picking up a big-bodied playmaker to play opposite of D.K. Metcalf.
