Final Mock Draft for 2021. It's likely 100% wrong (or 99% wrong since Picks 1 and 2 are locked in).

Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Jaguars: Trevor Lawrence, Quarterback, Clemson

Lawrence is going #1. Really the only question will be if Urban Meyer starts him from day one or if he lets Gardner Minshew start the year and they bring Lawrence along slowly.

2. Jets: Zach Wilson, Quarterback, BYU

The only other 100% certain lock. The Jets kicked the tires on all the prospects and Wilson won out. They are going to have to do a lot more for Wilson than they did for Darnold though.

3. 49ers: Mac Jones, Quarterback, Alabama

Lance, Fields or Jones. Who's the QB the Niners value most? The thing here is do you see it as a question of what you would do or what you think they'd do? I wouldn't take Jones but they might.

4. Falcons: Kyle Pitts, Tight End, Florida

For the Falcons, it's a question of what they value most: 2021 or the rest of the decade. Given the high cost of cutting Matt Ryan, it's unlikely they take a QB and sit on him. Instead taking Pitts and moving Julio may be the way they go.

5. Bengals: Ja'Marr Chase, Wide Receiver, LSU

This might be a case of need and opportunity meeting. The Bengals can reunite Joe Burrow with his favorite target from LSU and get the best WR prospect in the Draft.

6. Dolphins: Jaylen Waddle, Wide Receiver, Alabama

The Dolphins wheel and deal and still come out with a steal? (Sorry). Reuniting Waddle with Tua would give him someone he trusts and can help him continue to develop.

7. Lions: Penei Sewell, Offensive Tackle, Oregon

If Draft Night falls this way, I imagine the Lions would get a ton of calls from teams looking for a QB. If they stay put, it's to take the best defensive talent or the best O-line prospect.

8. Eagles: Patrick Surtain, Cornerback, Alabama

First mocked trade and it's not for a QB?! One can make a case that there's 4 first-round grade CBs and they'll be coveted. With teams between them needing one, the Eagles don't sit still and go get the top rated one.

9. Broncos: Trey Lance, Quarterback, North Dakota State

Having just traded for Teddy Bridgewater, you might think they wouldn't follow that up with taking a QB, but if one falls to their laps, they have to consider it, right?

10. Patriots: Justin Fields, Quarterback, Ohio State

Realistically, it's doubtful that Bill could move up into the top 7 without giving a ton. But moving up 5 picks might be more palatable to get the QB they need to start moving forward.

11. Giants: Rashawn Slater, Offensive Guard, Northwestern

Everything the Giants wants to do relies on Daniel Jones improving and Saquon Barkley returning to form. And that hinges on the o-line. Slater is versatile and highly coveted.

12. Panthers: Micah Parsons, Linebacker, Penn State

The Panthers do need to improve their o-line and weapons on offense. But landing one of the best prospects for the defense is tough to pass up. And Parsons can be their next Luke Kuechly.

13. Chargers: Alijah Vera-Tucker, Offensive Guard, USC

Feels like AVT has been mocked to the Chargers since the start. Fact is they do need to protect Justin Herbert if he's gonna reach the next level and Vera-Tucker projects well as an interior lineman.

14. Vikings: DeVonta Smith, Wide Receiver, Alabama

There's needs on both offensive and defensive lines but if there's one team that has shown its ability to maximize talent at WR, it's the Vikings. Having a WR corps of Jefferson, Thielen and Smith would make them the envy of the division. Take the best player and fill holes later.

15. Cowboys: Jaycee Horn, Cornerback, South Carolina

Trading back 5 spots and still ending with one of the top CBs in the Draft might be a dream scenario for some Dallas fans. Horn could be the first CB called too.

16. Cardinals: Greg Newsome II, Cornerback, Northwestern

The Cardinals lost Patrick Peterson and do need a replacement. Given how things have shaken up, it's a question of high-risk/reward (Farley) or steady performance (Newsome). Go with Newsome here, who is no slouch.
