NFL Two Round Mock Draft 2021 2.0 - Adam Pelletier

NFL Two Round Mock Draft 2021 2.0 – Adam Pelletier

It is finally here! The NFL draft is two weeks away and we are continuing our dedication to the best mock drafts you can find. SGPN will be bringing you mock drafts on a weekly basis from our talented football staff. For the purposes of the research that went into this two round mock draft, team needs were identified via The Draft Network’s guide. Updated depth charts were found over at Ourlads and many scouting reports were read over at the Pro Football Network and many many other resources were pulled in as well.

Looking at this talented draft class was especially challenging as you have to evaluate players who may be a year removed from meaningful football. However, that means that there will likely be value available up and down the draft. Several players with fringe first-round grades fell into the mid-second round. Similarly, several potential second-rounders slipped out of this mock. Look for more expert analysis in the weeks ahead and see what #DegenNation thinks will happen as we get deeper into draft season.

Two Round Mock Draft

NFL Mock Draft Round 1

#TeamPickPosCollege
1

Jaguars
Trevor LawrenceQBClemson
The Jags still do not overthink it here. Lawrence looks like the most "can't miss" prospect since Andrew Luck. Duuval needs hope and Larence can deliver the spark and hope the Jaguars need. His arm and other intangibles will make him invaluable to new coach Urban Meyer.
2

Jets
Justin FieldsQBOhio State
Fields showed up and dominated his pro day catapaulting himself into the conversation of being the top quarterback available. With blistering speed, athleticism, and an arm that looks even better than advertised, Fields is poised to be a breakout quarterback. Landing with the Jets put Fields under immense pressure. He survived the intense pressure at Ohio State, but can he survive the New Jersey pressure cooker? Time will tell.
3

49ers
via MIA
Zach WilsonQBBYU
The 49ers need to improve their offense because Jimmy G ain't cuttin it. The Mormon Mahomes might be their answer. Wilson appears to have the ability to make all the throws, move in and out the pocket, and the leadership San Francisco needs. There are already a ton of weapons on the 49ers roster and Wilson could be the man to escalate their offense to elite levels.
4

Falcons
Penei SewellOTOregon
Sure the buzz is that the Falcons will trade, but they have time left with Matt Ryan and need to keep him upright. Sewell is the kind of tackle who transforms an offensive line. Sewell looks like a surefire starter and anchor on the outside of the offensive line. Putting him on the Falcons' line will set tgeur offense up for success. Ryan and Atlanta can make another run or two with Sewell in the fold.
5

Bengals
Rashawn SlaterOTNorthwestern
Slater looks like a strong anchor at the tackle position and is the #2 Tackle off the board. The Bengals have to invest in keeping Joe Burrow upright and alive. Slater has the experience and size to be a difference maker at the NFL level. Bringing him into the fold makes the Bengals offense look even more potent.
6

Dolphins
via PHI
Ja’Marr ChaseWRLSU
Miami is on the verge of being relevant in the increasingly hyper-competitive AFC. To take the next step they will need a quarterback and Tua might be that guy. He also might not be, but in order to know for sure they need to provide him weapons. Chase looks like a true number one who can feast on soft coverages created by DeVante Parker and Will Fuller.
7

Lions
Azeez OjulariEDGEGeorgia
Ojulari had a strong regular season performance, but absolutely broke out in Georgia's bowl game. His three sacks showed how he can take over and dominate from start to finish. The Lions are looking to reinforce their image as a blue collar and hard charging team. Ojulari could spark their league-worst pass rush.
8

Panthers
Patrick Surtain IICBAlabama
Thanks to an early offensive line run, the best corner in this year's draft falls to the Panthers at pick 8. Matt Rhule gets an anchor for the outside Surtain has the talent to make an impact right away, something that Carolina desperately needs. Surtain has been a key part of the Tide's dominant defense the past two years and he will help the Panthers improve a lackluster passing defense.
9

Broncos
Micah ParsonsLBPenn State
Parsons is an athletic freak who will improve an already fromidable defense. The Broncos re-signed the face of their defense in Von Miller and Micah Parsons can take the torch from Miller to continue Denver's defensive dominance.
10

Cowboys
Jaycee HornCBSouth Carolina
The Cowboys have to improve their defense. In 2020, they were 22nd in yards per play and 27th in points against. Horn has the size, length, and athleticism to be a difference maker in the secondary. When combining Horn with 2020 rookie Trevon Diggs, Dallas has the start of an elite secondary.
11

Giants
Christian DarrisawOTVirginia Tech
Kramer's Giants are on the edge of being painfully average. With a strong defense and a potentially improved offense they are almost there. Danny Dimes has been running for his life and will need time to hit Kenny Golladay deep. Darrishaw might give him that time. They cannot afford to go with anything but a lineman here.
12

Eagles
via MIA via SF
DeVonta SmithWRAlabama
DeVonta looks like a reliable slot option who can open things up for former teammate Jalen Hurts and give him a safety valve in the middle of the field. The Eagles sound like an absolute dumpster fire and have more holes than Swiss cheese. Sure DeVonta makes a short-term impact, but can he be a transcendent talent?
13

Chargers
Caleb FarleyCBVirginia Tech
The Chargers' defense has strengths up front and Farley could be someone that secures the backend of their defense. They were good against the pass in 2020, but the AFC West is as pass-happy as they come and the Chargers need reinforcements on the backend. Farley has the size and talent to lock up larger targets in coverage.
14

Vikings
Alijah Vera-TuckerOLUSC
Vera-Tucker played tackle at USC, but could kick inside as a guard in the NFL. The Vikings need a powerful blocker to open up holes for Dalvin Cook and give Kirk Cousins time. Vera-Tucker could be the key to keeping Minnesota churning on offense.
15

Patriots
Trey LanceQBNorth Dakota
New England desperately needs a long term solution at the quarterback position. Lots of people have Mac Jones tied to New England, but he had one of the most underwhelming pro days in recent memory. Sure you can comp Jones to Brady in some ways, but Belichik understands how the NFL is evolving and knows Lance is the future.
16

Cardinals
Kyle PittsTEFlorida
Arizona needs weapons for Kyler Murray to compliment Deandre Hopkins. Kyle Pitts is graded as one of the top weapons available in this years draft and his next level athleticism will enable the Cardinals to move him around the formation. He has the skills and abilities to create mismatches all over the field as a big-bodied receiver.
17

Raiders
Kwity PayeEDGEMichigan
Las Vegas has to get their defense together and new coordinator Gus Bradley will want to beef up the defensive line. Paye has not posted monster sack numbers like Ojulari and Rousseau, but his consistent pressure and ability to set the edge will fit well with Bradley's scheme.
18

Dolphins
Gregory RousseauEDGEMiami
Miami stays local with this pick. Rousseau has length and athleticism of a game-wrecking edge rusher. As he continues to fill out his 6-7 frame he will become even more devastating. Put him into Brian Flores' ascending defense and the Dolphins take the next step with this pick.
19

Washington
Greg Newsome IICBNorthwestern
Washington had the second-best passing defense in the NFL and almost stopped the inevitable march of Brady and the Bucs. Adding a corner like Newsome could make their defense a major disrupter in the playoffs. WFT is on the edge of being the first great defense of the 2020s and Newsome can put them over the edge..
20

Bears
Jaylen WaddleWRAlabama
The Bears had an absolutely anemic passing offense and finished 27th in net yards per attempt. Jaylen Waddle is an explosive and dynamic playmaker. With the return of Allen Robinson and 2020 rookie Darnell Mooney, Waddle gives the Bears and whoever their quarterback will be an explosive stable of weapons. Even if this isn't their year, three receivers like that can open the door for the next free agent quarterback.
21

Colts
Teven JenkinsOTOklahoma State
Indy made a bold splash in going out to get Carson Wentz. the key to any young quarterback's success is keeping them upright. Philadelphia failed to do that and the Colts cannot make the same mistake. Jenkins looks to be a reliable option on the outside of the offensive line.
22

Titans
Samuel CosmiOTTexas
An early blitz on corners leaves the Titans high and dry and forces them to pivot to the offensive line. Cosmi is the fifth best tackle in the draft and he can keep the King Henry train rolling. With an offense built around a dominating running game the Titans have to keep their offensive line fresh and talented. Cosmi is a road grader who can open up the edge and protect the quarterback.
23

Jets
via SEA
Jaelan PhillipsEDGEMiami
Phillips stepped in as the primary edge rusher for the Hurricanes in 2020 and put up gaudy numbers. His 15.5 sacks were a team-best and he has the physical profile to be a disruptive force off the edge. The Jersey Jets had a terrible pass rush in 2020 and need a player like Phillips to bolster it.
24

Steelers
Mac JonesQBAlabama
Big Ben is getting older and more fragile. The Steelers have to come up with a succession plan and Mac Jones might be able to grow enough to become a valuable starter. Jones may be limited, but the Steelers have enough weapons to help him overcome those shortcomings.
25

Jaguars
via LAR
Trevon MoehrigSTCU
Moehrig is a talented safety who can make plays in coverage and clean up plays with solid tackling. He could end up being a nice option on the back end of the defensive secondary. In a pass happy league you have to have someone in center field who can provide a versatile option. Moehrig could grow into that player.
26

Bowns
Jayson OwehEDGEPenn State
The Browns were on the cusp of a Super Bowl appearance last season. An edge rusher like Oweh could be the kind of player who compliments Myles Garrett very well and takes the Browns' defense to an elite level.
27

Ravens
Rashod BatemanWRMinnesota
The Ravens have a bottom ten passing offense. It is absolutely pathetic. Part of that is the dedication to running the ball, but the other part is a lack of receiving options. With the signing of Sammy Watkins they have a guy who can stretch the field like noone else. Rashod Bateman has the size and talent to work at all levels of the field. Adding Bateman to Watkins, Brown, and Andrews could give Lamar the receivers to finally step forward as a passer.
28

Saints
Zaven CollinsLBTulsa
The Saints defense was good in 2020, but they need some more players on cheap deals to keep it up. Collins is a long and athletic linebacker who can work in coverage and in the run game. Collins can only improve the 5th best defense in the NFL even more.
29

Packers
Kadarius ToneyWRFlorida
Green Bay has to get a receiver to work with Davante Adams. Toney brings big play ability and athleticism to compliment Adams as a route-running technician. Toney averaged 12.9 yards per touch in 2020 and could be the kind of late bloomer rarely seen at receiver. The Packers have to keep Aaron Rodgers happy and drafting a receiver would go a long ways towards that goal.
30

Bills
Christian BarmoreDTAlabama
The number one defensive tackle falls to the Bills at pick 30. Barmore is a game-wrecker. The last time the Bills took a defensive tackle from Alabama it netted them Marcell Dareus. Before his flameout in Buffalo and Jacksonville, he was one hell of a player who anchored their defensive line. Pairing Barmore with Ed Oliver could give the Bills the pass rush up the middle they need to dominate.
31

Chiefs
Alex LeatherwoodOTAlabama
No changes from the 1.0 Mock. Kansas City has to improve their line. Patrick Mahomes got absolutely killed in the Super Bowl. Leatherwood has been a key part of one of the best lines in college football and continue his team success in KC. The Chiefs have to get younger on the line and have to invest heavily to protect their franchise player.
32

Buccaneers
Landen DickersonOLAlabama
The end of the first round sees two offensive linemen go off the board. Dickerson has the versatility to play multiple positions and that will be music to Brady's ears. Tom needs a clean pocket to make plays to the Buccaneers playmakers. Dickerson is able to come in and start for Tampa on day one.

NFL Mock Draft Round 2

#TeamPickPosCollege
33

Jaguars
Joe TryonEDGEWashington
Joe Tryon looks like he has the upside potential to be a dominant defensive edge. He has the size and ability to make an instant impact on a revamped Jags defense.
34

Jets
Najee HarrisRBAlabama
Harris falls out of the first round, but lands in a surprisingly strong situation with the Jets. He is a bruising back who is a capable receiver as well who can take some pressure off of Fields.
35

Falcons
Joseph OssaiEDGETexas
Atlanta goes out and gets a young and talented developmental edge rusher. Ossai has the upside of an early first rounder, but at early second round price.
36

Dolphins
via HOU
Jeremiah Owusu-KoramoahLBNotre Dame
Owusu-Koramoah is the second-best linebacker in the class and he falls to the second round. Miami continues to rebuild their defense and gets a huge value here.
37

Eagles
Jalen MayfieldOTMichigan
Philadelphia has to protect potential franchise quarterback Hurts. Mayfield has the size and athleticism to be a stud tackle. This is a great pick here for a rebuilding Eagles offense.
38

Bengals
Terrace Marshall Jr.WRLSU
Everyone thought Chase would be the LSU receiver the Bengals drafted. They had to address to offensive line in round one and now Marshall joins former teammate Joe Burrow.
39

Panthers
Creed HumphreyOLOklahoma
Sam Darnold arrives in Carolina and the Panthers have to find a way to give him time to find his offensive weapons. Humphrey is the best center in this class and linking him up with Darnold is a great move.
40

Broncos
Asante Samuel Jr.CBFlorida State
Asante Samuel looks every bit the NFL cornerback who can help keep the Broncos defense at an elite level. Many have him going in Round 1, but Denver lucks into him here in Round 2.
41

Lions
Elijah MooreWRMississippi
The Lions got a game-wrecking edge in Round 1 and now they get an elusive and explosive slot receiver in Round 2. Moore has explosive athleticism and elite production to be an offensive weapons for years to come.
42

Giants
Eric StokesCBGeoriga
Stokes has top-level speed and was Second Team All-SEC in 2020. Adding his speed to an already talented secondary makes the Giants defense even more elite.
43

49ers
Liam EichenbergOTNotre Dame
The 49ers invested in a potential franchsie quarterback in Round 1. Now in Round 2 they go out and add a massive tackle to keep Zach Wilson upright and safe.
44

Cowboys
Levi OnwuzurikeDTWashington
The defensive rebuild continues in Dallas with the selection of Onwuzurike. The second best defensive tackle in the class is a day one starter for the Cowboys.
45

Jaguars
via MIN
Ifeatu MelifonwuCBSyracuse
The Jaguars continue their rebuild and get a big and long corner out of Syracuse. Melifonwu is a strong tackler who can make plays on the ball and will be an instant impact player.
46

Patriots
Rondale MooreWRPurdue
Moore has some elite-level speed and will bring a great element to the New England offense. With Edelman retiring it opens up the slot for a new threat and Moore could be a long-term answer there.
47

Chargers
Jevon HollandSOregon
The Chargers add a safety who can compliment Derwin James. Holland brings some nice experience and athleticism to the Chargers defense.
48

Raiders
Nick BoltonLBMissouri
Vegas needs to improve their defense and Nick Bolton seems like a modern cover linebacker. He lead Missouri in passes defnded in 2019 and was a two-time All-SEC linebacker.
49

Cardinals
Elijah MoldenCBWashington
After adding another offensive weapon in Round 1, Arizona turns its attention to the defense. Playing in a pass happy NFC West means Molden will be thrown right into the fire and he should be up to the task.
50

Dolphins
Travis EtienneRBClemson
Etienne joins Myles Gaskin and will give the Miami offense the ability to always have a fresh and explosive young back on the field. Adding Etienne will take even more pressure off of Tua and could take the offense to a new level.
51

Washington
Dillon RadunzOTNorth Dakota
Washington got a short term answer at quarterback in free agency. Now they work on laying a strong foundation for their future by adding Radunz. A two year starter at North Dakota, he brings size and skills to a rebuilding line.
52

Bears
Aaron RobinsonCBUCF
Robinson was a two year starter and four year contributor at UCF. He was a two time All-AAC team member as well.
53

Titans
Richie GrantSUCF
Back to back UCF defensive backs here as one of the top safeties in the draft joins the Titans. Grant was a three year starter and is a tackling machine. He also has some solid ball-hawking skills that will make him an instant contributor.
54

Colts
Carlos Basham Jr.EDGEWake Forest
Basham is a long and strong defensive end. He posted 11.0 sacks in 2019 and lead Wake Forest in sacks his junior and senior years.
55

Steelers
Javonte WilliamsRBNorth Carolina
With James Conner leaving there is a hole in the Steelers offense. Williams had a monstrous junior year and is a multi-dimensional back who could lead Pittsburgh's RBBC.
56

Seahawks
Ronnie PerkinsEDGEOklahoma
Last year the Seahawks relied on a blitzing safety to lead their team in sacks. Perkins brings some speed off the edge and has solid size to blitz from the outside.
57

Rams
Jamin DavisLBKentucky
The Rams defense was a storng unit last year and adding a long athlete like Davis adds another element to that. Adding Davis will make the Rams defense a sacry unit in the long term.
58

Ravens
Wyatt DavisOLOhio State
Davis brings size and strength to the interior of the line and can add some security for Lamar Jackson. He was a two-time All-American and looks every bit a dominant interior force.
59

Bowns
Tyson CampbellCBGeorgia
The Browns add a corner here in Round 2 to further solidify their defense. The road to a Super Bowl runs through Buffalo and Kansas City, both teams with strong receiving corps.. Campbell has size and strength to matchup with a wide variety of receivers.
60

Saints
Amon-Ra St. BrownWRUSC
St. Brown has some size and speed to bring a new element to the Saints' offense. New Orleans has weapons, but St. Brown brings talent at a bargain price to New Orleans.
61

Bills
Hamsah NasirideenSFlorida State
Buffalo goes with another defensive player and Nasirideen is a physical player and tackling machine. He could really fit in the big nickel role for the Bills and could cover tight ends as well.
62

Packers
Dylan MosesLBAlabama
After finally getting Aaron Rodgers some offensive help they turn their attention to the defensive side of the ball. Moses is a reliable playmaker who can make all the tackles.
63

Chiefs
Quinn MeinerzOLWisconsin-Whitewater
Kansas City got absolutely destroyed by the Bucs pass rush in the super bowl. Meinerz can come in and be an immediate starter on the interior of the offensive line.
64

Buccaneers
Kyle TraskQBFlorida
The Bucs presently do not have a backup quarterback on the roster. Trask was talked about as a high draft pick before 2019 and had an even better 2020. He is not the most mobile quarterback, but he has a live arm and accuracy.
