2021 NFL Mock Re-Draft: Round 3



Last update: Friday, April 30, 2021.
This is a 2021 NFL Mock Re-Draft of Rounds 2 and 3 for Friday evening's NFL Draft coverage. With all of the trades that will go down, I don't expect to get many of these right (I nailed eight in my Re-Draft Rounds 2-3 in 2018), but it's still fun to speculate where the top prospects will go on Day 2 of the 2021 NFL Draft.

  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Shaun Wade, CB, Ohio State
    C.J. Henderson played well when healthy during his rookie year, but the Jaguars don't have much else at cornerback.

    Shaun Wade has a ton of upside and was able to produce well in the slot in 2019. He has struggled this past year, however.

  2. Minnesota Vikings: Andre Cisco, S, Syracuse
    Anthony Harris is gone, so the Vikings will need a new safety next to Harrison Smith.

    Andre Cisco is an instinctive safety who could start as a rookie.

  3. Houston Texans: Jay Tufele, DT, USC
    The Texans finally get to pick! They had a woeful run defense in 2020, so perhaps they'll use this pick to fix this problem.

    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.

  4. Atlanta Falcons: Kyle Trask, QB, Florida
    The Falcons need to find a potential successor for Matt Ryan in the middle of this draft.

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



  5. Cincinnati Bengals: Patrick Jones, DE, Pittsburgh
    Thanks to the departure of Carl Lawson, the Bengals will be looking to upgrade their pass rush early in the 2021 NFL Draft.

  6. Philadelphia Eagles: Kelvin Joseph, CB, Kentucky
    The Eagles have endured some glaring cornerback issues over the past several seasons, so they could use an early draft pick on the position.

    Kelvin Joseph was very inconsistent at Kentucky, but possesses a ton of upside.

  7. Denver Broncos: Joseph Ossai, DE/OLB, Texas
    Von Miller won't be around much longer, so here's a potential starter for the future.

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



  8. Detroit Lions: Davis Mills, QB, Stanford
    The Lions will give Jared Goff a chance, but they could also be in the market for an answer to the position in Rounds 3-5.

  9. Carolina Panthers: Aaron Banks, G, Notre Dame
    The Panthers must protect Sam Darnold in order to give him a chance to succeed in his new home.

    Aaron Banks is at his best as a run blocker, but he was also reliable as a pass protector in 2020.

  10. Washington Redskins: Richie Grant, S, Central Florida
    Landon Collins is coming off a torn Achilles, so the Redskins might want to obtain a safety in the middle rounds.



  11. Dallas Cowboys: Marlon Tupulotu, DT, USC
    The Cowboys need to strengthen the interior of their defensive line, which is one of many things they need to do concerning their defense.

  12. New York Giants: Dan Moore, OT, Texas A&M
    The Giants may draft Rashawn Slater if the top receivers are off the board. It's more likely that they'll address their offensive line in the second or third round.

  13. Los Angeles Chargers: Kenny Gainwell, RB, Memphis
    Austin Ekeler can't handle a full workload, so the Chargers are expected to add a running back on Day 2.

    Kenny Gainwell is explosive and fast, and he can go the distance on any play. He needs to bulk up a bit, but his upside is through the roof.



  14. Minnesota Vikings: Kellen Mond, QB, Texas A&M
    The Vikings can use one of their billion third-round picks on a quarterback to challenge Kirk Cousins.

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

  15. Las Vegas Raiders: Daviyon Nixon, DT, Iowa
    The Raiders cut Maurice Hurst, so they'll need to add someone to the defensive interior.

    Daviyon Nixon had a strong 2020 campaign, showing effectiveness as a pass rusher and a run stuffer.




  16. Las Vegas Raiders: Caden Sterns, S, Texas
    Johnathan Abram has been a huge bust thus far. The Raiders will give him one more chance, but they may want someone to challenge him.

  17. Miami Dolphins: Chazz Surratt, LB, North Carolina
    I'm sure Brian Flores would love adding a versatile linebacker to his defense in the wake of Kyle Van Noy's departure.

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

  18. Washington Redskins: Tutu Atwell, WR, Louisville
    The Redskins need a better No. 3 receiving option than Cam Sims.

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



  19. Chicago Bears: Paulson Adebo, CB, Stanford
    The Bears lost Kyle Fuller this offseason, so they'll need to find a new No. 1 cornerback.

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

  20. Dallas Cowboys: Trey Hill, C/G, Georgia
    The Cowboys had severe offensive line issues last year, so they need to make sure that doesn't happen again.

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




  21. Tennessee Titans: James Hudson, OT, Cincinnati
    The Titans are looking for a right tackle, given that they lost three of those in the past two offseasons.

  22. Minnesota Vikings: Monty Rice, LB, Georgia
    The Vikings could use another linebacker, as the position was a weakness when Eric Kendricks was hurt last year.

  23. Pittsburgh Steelers: Walker Little, OT, Stanford
    Here's another offensive lineman for the Steelers, who lost three blockers this offseason.

  24. Los Angeles Rams: Milton Williams, DT, Louisiana Tech
    The Rams lost Michael Brockers this offseason, so here's a replacement.



  25. Cleveland Browns: Ar'Darius Washington, S, TCU
    The Browns endured poor safety play in 2020, so this is a position that could be addressed early in the 2021 NFL Draft.

    Ar'Darius Washington is undersized, but has terrific instincts.

  26. Minnesota Vikings: Cameron Sample, DE, Tulane
    The Vikings need to retool their defensive line, which saw several players depart as a result of cap complications.



  27. Cleveland Browns: Marvin Wilson, DT, Florida State
    The Browns have the luxury of beefing up their defensive line with some extra selections in the 2021 NFL Draft.

    Marvin Wilson has outstanding size (6-5, 311) and athleticism, and he is capable of putting consistent pressure on the quarterback.

  28. Green Bay Packers: D'Wayne Eskridge, WR, Western Michigan
    Now that Aaron Rodgers is basically gone, the Packers can find some upgrades at receiver to help Jordan Love.

  29. Buffalo Bills: Kylin Hill, RB, Mississippi State
    The Bills could have traded up for Travis Etienne. They didn't, so they may use a second-day pick on another running back.

  30. Baltimore Ravens: Pete Werner, LB, Ohio State
    The Ravens were weak at linebacker last year, so they may add someone to go along with Patrick Queen.

    Pete Werner is a stout run defender who had a strong finish to his 2020 campaign.

  31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Baron Browning, LB, Ohio State
    Lavonte David was re-signed for a couple of years. The Buccaneers will have to find a long-term solution next to Devin White.

    Baron Browning made some nice plays in the college football playoff.

  32. New England Patriots: Rodarius Williams, CB, Oklahoma State
    The Patriots have some older cornerbacks, so they'll need to obtain some young blood at the position.

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

  33. San Angeles Chargers: Tre McKitty, TE, Georgia
    The Chargers lost Hunter Henry to free agency, so they'll need to find a new tight end for Justin Herbert.

    Tre McKitty is athletic, but needs to be stronger to contribute in the NFL.

  34. New Orleans Saints: Joshuah Bledsoe, S, Missouri
    The Saints sorely need help all over their defense, including safety.

    Joshuah Bledsoe has been a solid tackler over the years for Missouri.

  35. Dallas Cowboys: Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama
    The Cowboys need some young blood at linebacker. Sean Lee is an impending free agent, while Leighton Vander Esch has trouble staying healthy.

    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.

  36. Tennessee Titans: Ronnie Perkins, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
    The Titans signed Bud Dupree, but they still need help with their edge rush.

    Ronnie Perkins needs to bulk up a bit, but he has great potential as an edge rusher.

  37. Detroit Lions: Tyler Shelvin, NT, LSU
    The Lions can use the pick they acquired from the Rams to fix their woeful run defense. Another lineman makes sense.

  38. Miami Dolphins: Trey Smith, OT/G, Tennessee
    The Dolphins figure to add an offensive lineman to make sure Tua Tagovailoa is well protected.

    Despite being a freshman, Trey Smith was arguably Tennessee's best player in 2017. Unfortunately, injuries have ruined his career.

  39. Los Angeles Rams: K.J. Britt, LB, Auburn
    The linebacking corps is the weakness of the Rams' defense, so it must be addressed.



  40. Baltimore Ravens: Sage Surratt, WR, Wake Forest
    The Ravens have an obvious need at receiver, which could be addressed with multiple picks.

  41. New Orleans Saints: Robert Rochell, CB, Central Arkansas
    The Saints had some secondary players depart recently, so here's a replacement for one of them.
