In my fifth Mock Draft of the year, we now have four QBs going in the Top 20. After seven weeks of the season, we are still looking at the undefeated Arizona Cardinals picking 32nd. Maybe even more surprising are the Cincinnati Bengals at 31 as the best team in the AFC.
Let’s do some mock drafting!
**PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DRAFT ORDER WAS SELECTED PRIOR TO SNF & MNF**
|Matt Corral, QB, Mississippi
|The Lions are 0-7 even though that may not all be the fault of Jared Goff. With that being said, I can see Detroit wanting to go in a different direction and Corral is the best QB prospect at this point.
|Philadelphia Eagles (F. MIA)
|Kayvon Thibodeaux, EDGE, Oregon
|Thibodeaux is the best prospect in this class. His burst around the bend and ability to finish will improve the Eagles pass rush on day one.
|Sam Howell, QB, North Carolina
|The Texans are going to need a new QB. They are going to trade Deshaun Watson at some point. Howell has been on a roller coaster ride so far in 2021. Is he still worth a top ten pick?
|Kyle Hamilton, S, Notre Dame
|I felt like the Jets needed an offensive weapon for Zach Wilson but I didn't like the value. Hamilton is the BPA and helps their secondary.
|Evan Neal, OT, Alabama
|We don't know if Urban Meyer will be the head coach next year but we do know Trevor lawrence will be the QB. The Jags need to protect him and Evan neal is the best OT in this class.
|Derek Stingley, Jr., CB, LSU
|The Eagles continue to remake their defense by adding the top corner in this class.
|George Karlaftis, DL, Purdue
|If Dave Gettleman gets another draft this feels like a pick he would make. Karlaftis is rising up my board with his tremendous play this season. He is a very scheme versatile individual.
|Malik Willis, QB, Liberty
|Let me preface this by saying, I wouldn't touch Willis anywhere near round one. But Washington needs a new QB and Daniel Snyder likes to do flashy things.
|Philadelphia Eagles (F. IND)
|Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas
|Burks is a H/W/S phenom. He is a touchdown waiting to happen on every snap. The Eagles could use that kind of playmaking ability.
|NY Jets (F. SEA)
|Kingsley Enagbare, EDGE, South Carolina
|Enagbare is a great rusher off the edge, with a high motor and closing speed. The Jets can pair him with the returning Carl Lawson next season.
|Miami Dolphins (F. SF)
|Charles Cross, OT, Mississippi State
|Despite only being a redshirt sophomore, Cross is one of the best offensive tackles in the nation. If Miami decides to build around Tua, Cross would be a great place to start.
|New England Patriots
|Drake London, WR, Southern Cal
|Through seven games so far this year, London has caught 79 passes. That ridiculous production, combined with a big need in New England, and this pick makes a ton of sense.
|Nicholas Petit-Frere, OT, Ohio State
|Denver adds an upgrade at the offensive tackle position to help build around whoever the QB ends up being.
|Tyler Linderbaum, C, Iowa
|Linderbaum is the best interior prospect in this class and a player that can upgrade one of at least three spots for Carolina.
|NY Giants (F. CHI)
|Ahmad Gardner, CB, Cincinnati
|The Giants could use the "Sauce" to help continuing to build their defense.
|Kansas City Chiefs
|Demarvin Leal, DL, Texas A&M
|This is probably too much of a slide for Leal. He can take over games on the interior and the Chiefs could use a ton of defensive help.
|Kenny Pickett, QB, Pittsburgh
|I don't think Pickett should be a first round pick. However, he is trending that way. The Falcons eventually need to move away from Matt Ryan.
|Kenyon Green, G, Texas A&M
|The Steelers need help on the offensive line. Green is the best guard in this class.
|Aidan Hutchinson, EDGE, Michigan
|This will likely be a common position pick for Minnesota going forward. An edge rusher to pair with Danielle Hunter.
|Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State
|Are the Browns going to move on from Jarvis Landry and/or OBJ? If so, Wilson can con come in and immediate give them a downfield threat.
|New Orleans Saints
|Jordan Davis, DL, Georgia
|The Saints will have to start plugging holes that are left by aging vets. Davis is a freak athlete at 340 pounds.
|Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia
|Dean is a versatile defensive playmaker that can help the Bills at a few spots.
|Los Angeles Chargers
|Jalen Wydermyer, TE, Texas A&M
|Justin Herbert gets another weapon. Wydermyer is probably the only TE that will go in the Top 50.
|Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida
|The Cowboys missed on the top corners last year and the need is still there.
|Devonte Wyatt, DL, Georgia
|Wyatt doesn't get the attention that his teammate Jordan Davis does but he has elite traits as well.
|Jordan Battle, S, Alabama
|When all else fails, project the top available Alabama player to the Ravens.
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers
|Andrew Booth, Jr., CB, Clemson
|The Bucs can go just about anywhere but opt to add some depth at corner.
|Detroit Lions (F. LAR)
|Adam Anderson, EDGE, Georgia
|The Lions passed on Thibodeaux at the top, so they come back around with the Georgia edge.
|Las Vegas Raiders
|DeMarvion Overshown, LB, Texas
|The Raiders add a versatile athlete to help on their defense.
|Green Bay Packers
|Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State
|Jordan Love is going to need some weapons, right?
|Myron Cunningham, OT, Arkansas
|Cunningham hasn't been his A+ self this season. The Bengals take a gamble on his high upside.
|Isiah Spiller, RB, Texas A&M
|The surprise 7-0 Cardinals add another weapon for QB Kyler Murray with the versatile Aggie RB.
