2021 NFL Mock Draft – Round 2
Picks 1-20 | Picks 21-32 | Round 2 | Round 3
33. Jacksonville Jaguars
Nick Bolton, ILB, Missouri
The Jags have had a revolving door with talent on defense. They need to rebuild all three levels with high character players.
34. New York Jets
Javonte Williams, RB, North Carolina
The Frank Gore carry machine experiment last year was confusing. But, it might have shown they really didn’t have a young guy they felt was the future to give carries to.
35. Atlanta Falcons
Christian Barmore, DT, Alabama
The Falcons need to get to QB’s in their division more often.
36. Miami Dolphins (from Houston)
Zaven Collins, LB, Tulsa
Dolphins would love to have a pass rushing weapon off the edge to come in from time to time.
37. Philadelphia Eagles
Carlos Basham Jr., DE, Wake Forest
Eagles better hit on WR in this draft, and have needs in the secondary and need to get younger in the front seven.
38. Cincinnati Bengals
Azeez Ojulari, OLB, Georgia
Bengals really looked like an NFL team on the rise at the end of the year. They need to address their pass rush, and Ojulari might be the fastest edge rusher in the draft.
39. Carolina Panthers
Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota
The all defense draft last year has left the Panthers without a core of younger offensive players. Going offense with first two picks should be inevitable.
40. Denver Broncos
Greg Newsome II, CB, Northwestern
Is QB going to be in play for Broncos with first two picks? If not, they have to get younger and better in the secondary.
41. Detroit Lions
Daviyon Nixon, DT, Iowa
The Lions are in a multi-year rebuild and as much as they could use a star WR, they know that they can build that unit piece by piece and the supply at that position is seemingly boundless. The new regime wants to build this team with an elite offensive line and front seven.
42. New York Giants
Joseph Ossai, DE/OLB, Texas
Giants have looked on defense at times, but lack depth and pass rushers.
43. San Francisco 49ers
Kelvin Joseph, CB, Kentucky
The 49ers are old in the secondary and need to address that now. They also need to save money there.
44. Dallas Cowboys
Chazz Surratt, ILB, North Carolina
It wasn’t talked about enough, but the Cowboys were going through a major defensive scheme change that needs very different front seven players.
45. Jacksonville Jaguars (from Minnesota)
Pat Freiermuth, TE, Penn State
Jaguars need weapons for their new QB, and a safety net TE is a great start.
46. New England Patriots
Terrace Marshall, Jr., WR, LSU
The NFL that the Pats dominated for decades has changed a lot, and Belichick is going to have to invest more in skill positions.
47. Los Angeles Chargers
Tutu Atwell, WR, Louisville
The Chargers have a stud young QB that is far down the line on his NFL learning curve. Why not get him as many weapons as possible in an explosive offensive division.
48. Las Vegas Raiders
Trey Smith, OG, Tennessee
The Raiders need to keep getting younger and cheaper (and better) on the O-line.
49. Arizona Cardinals
Jay Tufele, DT, USC
The Cardinals have gotten cute with their last few drafts. It is time to spend filling in the weaknesses of their “Joes” players.
50. Miami Dolphins
Creed Humphrey, OG/OC, Oklahoma
The Dolphins still have work to do on their offensive line, specifically at center. Humphrey immediately becomes that unit’s anchor.
51. Washington Football Team
D’Wayne Eskridge, WR, Western Michigan
The WFT have added a nice piece to their WR core in free agency, and can really complete the unit through the draft.
52. Chicago Bears
Sam Cosmi, OT/OG, Texas
The Bears need to fix the interior of their offensive line immediately.
53. Tennessee Titans
Elijah Molden, CB, Washington
The Titans are a talented defensive team that lost their way when their DC retired before last year. They need a reboot on defense and just a few parts here and there.
54. Indianapolis Colts
Jevon Holland, S, Oregon
Colts have built an exceptional roster. Rotating 3 plus players at safety would be exciting.
55. Pittsburgh Steelers
Kyle Trask, QB, Florida
Steelers split the difference on going all in this year and building for the future and get their QB here.
56. Seattle Seahawks
Aaron Robinson, CB, UCF
The Seahawks pass defense is in dire need of a talent upgrade.
57. Los Angeles Rams
Jayson Oweh, LB, Penn State
The Rams defensive surge this year goes under the radar. Look for them to work on keeping that elite.
58. Baltimore Ravens
Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State
The Ravens are probably losing a key piece to their offensive line soon, and could use a right tackle.
59. Cleveland Browns
Jamar Johnson, S, Indiana
The Browns success might be a bit of an illusion- their defense is not dependable at all right now.
60. New Orleans Saints
Hunter Long, TE, Boston College
A loaded roster, but a question on where they will go with QB in the near future. They thrive on short passing, and multiple TE’s are the first step.
61. Buffalo Bills
Alim McNeill, DT, NC State
The Bills are set at most positions, so look for them to beef up both lines.
62. Green Bay Packers
Eric Stokes, CB, Georgia
The Packers had some breakdowns in the secondary at key times last year. A little more depth at corner would help.
63. Kansas City Chiefs
Landon Dickerson, OG/C, Alabama
Salary cap issues are going to be looming the next few years. The Chiefs need to get cheaper on the offfensive line immediately.
64. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Alex Leatherwood, OG/OT, Alabama
Really, this team is going to be all about the offensive line. Their coach is notorious for getting his QB’s killed, so they can’t have enough talent up front.
