  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Nick Bolton, LB, Missouri
    Myles Jack is having a great rebound year, but the Jaguars could use help at the position.

    Nick Bolton is not a great athlete, but he’s made many nice plays for Missouri, particularly in coverage.

  2. New York Jets: Andre Cisco, S, Syracuse
    The Jets dealt one of the top safeties in the NFL to the Seahawks. Here’s a potential replacement for Jamal Adams.

    Andre Cisco has a chance to sneak into the first round when he declares, as he’s been a very productive player.

    Pick change; previously Paris Ford, S

  3. Atlanta Falcons: Rashad Weaver, DE, Pittsburgh
    The Falcons have been searching for a quality edge rush for quite some time. They still need to find a solution.

    Rashad Evans has good size (6-5, 270) and athleticism. He’s rebounded well after missing all of 2019 with an injury.

    Pick change; previously Tyson Campbell, CB

  4. Miami Dolphins: Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson
    The Dolphins could add another running back to pair with Myles Gaskin.

    Travis Etienne is coming off a huge year in which he rushed for 1,572 yards. He has worked to become a better receiver.



  5. Philadelphia Eagles: Jackson Carman, G/OT, Clemson
    The Eagles seem to have forgotten what made them a Super Bowl champion in 2017. They had an elite offensive line back then, but now they can’t block at all for Carson Wentz or Jalen Hurts.

    Jackson Carman has some great athletic ability for a 340-pound lineman. Some believe he’s a left tackle in the pros. He comes with some character issues, however.

  6. Cincinnati Bengals: Joe Tryon, DE, Washington
    The Bengals need to continue to assemble defensive talent to help them contain Lamar Jackson, which includes another edge player.

    Joe Tryon came out of nowhere to have a breakout 2019 campaign. He has a nice frame (6-5, 262) and tons of upside to be an impactful edge rusher in the NFL.

    Pick change; previously Rashad Weaver, DE

  7. Carolina Panthers: Sam Cosmi, OT, Texas
    The Panthers must protect their new quarterback, whether that’s Deshaun Watson or Trey Lance.

    Sam Cosmi is very athletic, but is considered raw at the moment. He appears to have added strength in 2020.

    Pick change; previously Andre Cisco, S



  8. Denver Broncos: Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma State
    The Broncos have finally gotten Garett Bolles to play well, but they’ll need a talented bookend at right tackle.

  9. Detroit Lions: Paulson Adebo, CB, Stanford
    The Lions have serious problems at cornerback, so they may use a second-day pick on the position.

    Paulson Adebo has great size, coverage skills and play-making ability. He struggled a bit in 2019, but could rebound next year.

  10. New York Giants: James Hudson, OT, Cincinnati
    The Giants have issues blocking for Daniel Jones, so they’ll need to improve their offensive line.

    Pick change; previously Sam Cosmi, OT



  11. San Francisco 49ers: Trey Hill, C, Georgia
    The 49ers were expected to target a center early in the 2020 NFL Draft, so they may pursue the position at this juncture.

    Trey Hill put himself on the first-round map when he handled Derrick Brown impressively in 2019.

  12. Dallas Cowboys: Jay Tufele, DT, USC
    As mentioned in the first round, the Cowboys must address their defense. They need help at every level. The interior of their defensive front needs an injection of talent.

    Jay Tufele is an extremely athletic and agile 310-pound defensive tackle who could be chosen in the top half of the draft, whenever he declares.

  13. Jacksonville Jaguars: Greg Newsome, CB, Northwestern
    The Jaguars need to continue fixing their defense, which lost a ton of talented personnel recently.

    Greg Newsome has great technique and would be higher in this mock draft if it weren’t for his extensive injury history.

    Pick change; previously Josh Jobe, CB

  14. New England Patriots: Mac Jones, QB, Alabama
    Bill Belichick passed on all the quarterbacks in the 2020 NFL Draft. I imagine he won’t be doing that again.

    Mac Jones has been better than expected this year, and sources have told Charlie Campbell that they expect Jones to be chosen in the second round.



  15. Los Angeles Chargers: Landon Dickerson, C, Alabama
    Here’s more offensive line help for the Chargers. Mike Pouncey has retired, but he needed to be upgraded anyway.

    Landon Dickerson transferred from Florida State and ended up being a solid run blocker for the Tide.

  16. Las Vegas Raiders: Rodarius Williams, CB, Oklahoma State
    Here’s another cornerback for the Raiders, who need as much help as possible to defend Patrick Mahomes over the next 10 years.

    Rodarius Williams had always been just a steady player at Oklahoma State, but his play improved exponentially in 2020.






  17. Arizona Cardinals: Pat Friermuth, TE, Penn State
    The Cardinals could add a play-maker for Kyler Murray. They don’t have much at tight end, so this could be an area to upgrade on Day 2 of the 2021 NFL Draft.

    Pat Friermuth has great upside and athleticism.

  18. Miami Dolphins: Wyatt Davis, G, Ohio State
    The Dolphins need to fix their offensive line, as Tua Tagovailoa was under siege more than the Dolphins wanted.

    Wyatt Davis is a tough run blocker with nice size.

  19. Washington Redskins: Kyle Trask, QB, Florida
    The Redskins may sign a veteran quarterback in free agency, but they could also use a second-day pick on a quarterback if they can’t get one in the opening frame.

    Kyle Trask is an accurate passer with a strong arm, but he needs to hasten his decision-making.



  20. Chicago Bears: Kadarius Toney, WR, Florida
    Allen Robinson is heading for free agency. The Bears will obviously need a new No. 1 receiver if he departs.

    Kadarius Toney has big-time play-making ability, but has an injury history.

  21. Tennessee Titans: Joseph Ossai, DE/OLB, Texas
    The Titans could double up on edge rushers, given their inability to get to the quarterback.

    Joseph Ossai has good athleticism and projects as an outside linebacker in the 3-4.

    Pick change; previously Joe Tryon, DE




  22. Indianapolis Colts: Walker Little, OT, Stanford
    The Colts will need to somehow replace Anthony Castonzo, who opted to retire this offseason.

    Walker Little was projected as a top-10 prospect in the 2020 NFL Draft before he suffered an injury. He’ll be back to that designation in 20201 if he can show that he’s healthy.

  23. Pittsburgh Steelers: Kellen Mond, QB, Texas A&M
    The Steelers need to find a quarterback for the future.

    Kellen Mond was inconsistent throughout his Texas A&M career, but he has shown improvement in accuracy.

  24. Seattle Seahawks: Cade Mays, OT, Tennessee
    Russell Wilson’s camp has expressed frustration about Seattle not protecting him properly.

    Cade Mays was a five-star recruit, and he has the potential to be an elite left tackle.

  25. Los Angeles Rams: Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama
    The weak point of the Rams’ defense is the linebacking corps, which will likely be addressed this offseason.

    Dylan Moses, a former five-star recruit, missed a chunk of his freshman campaign, but was very productive as a sophomore. Unfortunately, he tore his ACL.



  26. Baltimore Ravens: Chazz Surratt, DE/OLB, North Carolina
    The Ravens need to improve their edge rush, despite the addition of Yannick Ngakoue.

    Chazz Surratt spent some time at quarterback before breaking out at linebacker. He should continue to improve as he learns the position.

    Pick change; previously Joseph Ossai, DE/OLB

  27. Cleveland Browns: Tutu Atwell, WR, Louisville
    It remains to be seen if the Browns will retain Odell Beckham Jr., or if they’ll release him.

    Tutu Atwell projects as a slot receiver in the NFL after showing play-making ability in 2020.



  28. New Orleans Saints: Marques Stevenson, WR, Houston
    The Saints signed Emmanuel Sanders, but they need a second receiver for the long term.

    Marques Stevenson has incredible speed.

  29. Buffalo Bills: Rondale Moore, RB/WR, Purdue
    The Bills don’t really have any needs, so they can afford to use a second-round pick on a versatile weapon.

    Rondale Moore is a very intriguing weapon. He accumulated 1,367 yards as a freshman by both running and receiving. Some NFL team is going to figure out a great way to use the extremely talented 175-pounder.

  30. Green Bay Packers: Dayo Odeyingbo, DE/DT, Vanderbilt
    Raheem Mostert trampled the Packers in the NFC Championship last year, yet the front office did nothing about it.

    Dayo Odeyingbo has improved this year, showing strength and a quick first step.

  31. Kansas City Chiefs: Tylan Wallace, WR, Tulane
    Sammy Watkins likely won’t be back next year, so the Chiefs could be in the market for a new No. 2 receiver.

    Tylan Wallace doesn’t have great size and speed, but he runs routes very well. He tore his ACL in October 2019.

  32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Deonte Brown, G, Alabama
    The Buccaneers could stand to add another lineman to protect Tom Brady, especially after what happened in the loss to the Rams.

    Deonte Brown’s strength is blasting open huge holes for his running backs, but he’s also a solid pass protector.
