NFL Mock Draft Monday: 49ers Secure Future Quarterback

2021 NFL four-round mock draft. Who does your favorite team draft?

Original:

1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson

At this point in the process, it should not shock anyone that Lawrence will be the first player selected. Lawrence is one of the most complete prospects at the position that we have ever seen. This is a no-brainer pick for the Jaguars.

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

Wilson appears to be a lock to the Jets. After trading Sam Darnold to the Panthers, the Jets are without a starting quarterback. Expect them to fill it here with a player they seem to be very enamored with. Wilson has an excellent arm and if he improves his footwork could be one of the best players in this draft.

3. San Francisco 49ers: Trey Lance, QB, North Dakota State

There is a lot of talk about Mac Jones at this pick and though that is possible, Lance simply makes more sense. Lance is ready for the league and has a ridiculous arm to go along with his athleticism and intelligence. He would be scary in head coach Kyle Shanahan’s offense.

4. Atlanta Falcons: Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State

This draft starts with four quarterbacks out the gate. Fields is a physical specimen at the position and has a very strong arm with great touch on his deep ball. The Falcons can’t expect Matt Ryan to be around for too much longer and they need to plan for the future.

5. Cincinnati Bengals: Penei Sewell, T, Oregon

The Bengals need to protect quarterback Joe Burrow and get gifted with the best non-quarterback in the draft. To some, Sewell might even be the best player in this class. He is a phenomenal tackle prospect who should be an easy decision.

6. Miami Dolphins: Ja’Marr Chase, WR, LSU

Getting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa a star weapon has to be the plan for the Dolphins. Chase is the best receiver in the draft and could immediately make Tagovailoa’s job easier by giving him a target that can create for himself. Just get Chase the ball or throw it up to him and he will make the Dolphins very happy.

7. Detroit Lions: Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama

Waddle was out-performing the eventual Heisman winner before he got injured. As long as the medicals check out, he is a dynamic receiver who fits a huge need in Detroit. Their top receivers left in free agency and now the hole is filled with an absolute burner.

8. Carolina Panthers: Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida

This could be two years in a row that Carolina manages to land a top-three player in the draft at their pick. Pitts is a unicorn by all stretches of the imagination and it is important to get new quarterback Sam Darnold another weapon.

9. Denver Broncos: Mac Jones, QB, Alabama

Jones is likely to find himself in the top 10 picks of the draft. Denver has very young and impressive weapons on offense. Quarterback Drew Lock has not been very impressive since entering the league. Jones may not be the pretty pick, but he is likely to find himself picked around this range.

10. Dallas Cowboys: Patrick Surtain II, CB, Alabama

The Cowboys could pair up former Alabama corners. Surtain would be an excellent fit alongside Trevon Diggs, who the Cowboys selected last year. Surtain is a clinical corner who will be a solid piece on a defense that needs consistency.

11. New York Giants:  Rashawn Slater, OL, Northwestern

The Giants were one of the big spenders in the offseason and improved their roster. They could strengthen the offensive line with a versatile piece. They have third-round pick Matt Peart, who can play right tackle for them and have Slater play right guard. However, if Peart struggles, they can play Slater at tackle. This gives them a solid starter on the interior which they need.

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

Horn opposite Darius Slay would be one of the best corner duos in the league almost immediately. This would allow the Eagles to begin building up the defense and give them a pairing to go against any receiver group in the league.

13. Los Angeles Chargers: Christian Darrisaw, T, Virginia Tech

Protecting quarterback Justin Herbert has to be a priority. The Chargers signed some solid interior offensive line pieces in free agency, but they did not fix the left tackle position. Darrisaw can do that for them and do it well. He is an excellent pass blocker that will allow them to go pass-heavy behind Hebert’s cannon of an arm.

14. Minnesota Vikings: Alijah Vera-Tucker, G, USC

The USC tackle will be able to transition inside and provide the Vikings a legit high-level blocker. Vera-Tucker is athletic enough to get to the second level and be dominant for running back Dalvin Cook. He will also be strong in the passing game against slower interior defensive linemen.

15. New England Patriots: Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State

Parsons is falling down the board, but not due to his play on the field which was dominant in 2019. The Patriots can bring him in and have a legitimately elite second-level defender who will give them versatility in all aspects of the game. This would be a win for Parsons and New England if it happens.

16. Arizona Cardinals: Azeez Ojulari, OLB, Georgia

The corner position is deep in this draft, but the edge-rusher position is not. The Cardinals select the first one off the board and pair him with star pass rusher Chandler Jones. A combination of Jones and Ojulari would be very scary for NFC West quarterbacks.

17. Las Vegas Raiders: Spencer Brown, T, Northern Iowa

The Raiders reworked their offensive line this offseason and could desperately use another piece. Brown is an athletic freak at over 6-foot-8 and 300 pounds. Playing him opposite Kolton Miller would give the Raiders an excellent tackle duo.

18. Miami Dolphins: Jaelen Phillips, EDGE, Miami

Phillips stays home with this pick. He is a dominant player who would probably be a top-10 pick if it wasn't for injury concerns. If the medicals are all checked out, this would be an excellent value for both parties.

19. Washington Football Team: Samuel Cosmi, T, Texas

The defense is looking great, so adding a left tackle to replace Trent Williams who was traded last year is a must. Cosmi is a developmental player, but if he puts it together, his ceiling is very high and could be an excellent pick for Washington.

20. Chicago Bears: Devonta Smith, WR, Alabama

The Heisman winner has to be the pick if he lasts this far. Smith is a smooth route-runner who would pair nicely with Allen Robinson II. For quarterback Andy Dalton to succeed, the Bears need to surround him with weapons and Smith would be an exciting one.

21. Indianapolis Colts: Ifeatu Melifonwu, CB, Syracuse

Melifonwu is a long and physical corner that fits what the Colts need. There is also an obvious need at left tackle, but the thought of adding Melifonwu to this defense is too tempting.

22. Tennessee Titans: Teven Jenkins, T, Oklahoma State

The best run-blocking tackle ends up filling a much-needed hole in Tennessee for running back Derrick Henry. There may not be a better fit in this year’s draft. It would be scary to have this good of a blocker opening holes for Henry.

23. New York Jets: Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson

The Jets have a lot of spots to fill, but Etienne fits exactly what they need as a runner and he is one of the best in the class. Adding him to this offense would give quarterback Zach Wilson a reliable run game to lean on.

24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Najee Harris, RB, Alabama

Harris fits the mold of what Pittsburgh loves in a running back. This may not be the most effective pick, but it will allow for their offense to rely on the run far more than it could with James Conner.

25. Jacksonville Jaguars: Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU

Jacksonville has some nice young pieces on offense to help support quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Adding a versatile piece like Moehrig would give them another young player on defense that has a lot of skills.

26. Cleveland Browns: Kwity Paye, DE, Michigan

Pairing Paye with Myles Garrett would give the Browns great combination of edge defenders to build around. This team is nearing a championship level and adding to the defense will be important for getting to the next level.

27. Baltimore Ravens: Jayson Oweh, EDGE, Penn State

The Ravens lost their pass rush in free agency and what better way to infuse it than with a player who ran a sub-4.4 40-yard dash at his Pro Day. Oweh could be fun for cooridnator Wink Martindale to deploy.

28. New Orleans Saints: Zaven Collins, LB, Tulsa

The Saints are in desperate need of playmakers on rookie deals. Collins is a steal at this pick and a very versatile defender who can affect the game in many ways for New Orleans.

29. Green Bay Packers: Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB, Notre Dame

The Packers can't pass on the value of Owusu-Koramoah and will have to wait for a receiver later in the draft. The Notre Dame defender fills a major need and will help the defense mightily.

30. Buffalo Bills: Javonte Williams, RB, North Carolina

The Bills need a reliable run game for quarterback Josh Allen in order to keep him playing at a high level. Williams is the final back of the three-headed monster that highlights this running back class.

31. Kansas City Chiefs: Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota

If Bateman finds himself in Kansas City, we may be looking at a demolition of the records Justin Jefferson set last season. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes would have a good time mixing Batemon in with tight end Travis Kelce and wide receivers Tyreek Hill, and Mecole Hardman.

32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Christian Barmore, iDL, Alabama

The Barmore "slip" stops here and the Buccaneers are running to the podium with this pick. Putting Barmore next to Vita Vea will be very dangerous for the defending champs. They will add to what is already a formidable defense.
