2021 NFL Mock Draft – Round 3
Picks 1-20 | Picks 21-32 | Round 2 | Round 3
65. Jacksonville Jaguars
Osa Odighizuwa, DT, UCLA
The Jags have specifically stated that they want to build their defense starting at the D-line.
66. New York Jets
Shaun Wade, CB, Ohio State
The Jets were pretty solid against the run last year. Their secondary is another story.
67. Houston Texans
Joseph Ossai, DE/OLB, Texas
The Texans have a tough road ahead in terms of the draft. They desperately need to fix their front seven.
68. Atlanta Falcons
Richie Grant, S, UCF
More secondary help. Keep it coming.
69. Cincinnati Bengals
Ronnie Perkins, LB/DE, Oklahoma
Bengals could use more pass rush.
70. Philadelphia Eagles
Ed Ingram, OG, LSU
The Eagles need every bit of help they can get on their O-line.
71. Denver Broncos
Jabril Cox, ILB, LSU
Cox is a bit of a wildcar;, talent is off the charts, but has very serious character concerns after trashing another prospect in the draft- something we have never seen in the history of this site.
72. Detroit Lions
Walker Little, OT, Stanford
The Lions have a good offensive line, but need a right tackle.
73. Carolina Panthers
Payton Turner, DE, Houston
The Panthers shouldn’t be taking a defensive player with their first two picks. They have a young, talented defense, but do need help on the edge.
74. Washington Football Team (from San Francisco)
Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami
Whomever the QB is for the WFT next year, they need more weapons at WR, TE, and RB.
75. Dallas Cowboys
Tyler Shelvin, DT, LSU
Cowboys need probably 4 new starters on defense.
76. New York Giants
Cameron Sample, DE, Tulane
There is a lot of promise on the NYG defense, they just need more talent.
77. New England Patriots (Forfeited)
78. Los Angeles Chargers
Aaron Banks, OG, Notre Dame
Interior offensive line needs help, maybe their biggest need.
79. Minnesota Vikings
Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue
The Vikings could use a legit third WR.
80. Las Vegas Raiders (from Arizona)
Aaron Robinson, CB, UCF
Raiders are trying to rebuild their defense. A versatile player like Robison will help.
81. Las Vegas Raiders
James Hudson, OT, Cincinnati
Raiders need to find some cheap starters on the offensive line. It is draining their salary cap.
82. Miami Dolphins
Tony Fields II, ILB, West Virginia
The Dolphins can really build depth in this draft. And get ahead of any salary cap issues.
83. Washington Football Team
Dynami Brown, WR, North Carolina
Another WR is critical to find in this draft.
84. Chicago Bears
Jaelon Darden, WR, North Texas
The Bears have an unhappy WR on a franchise tag and need much more help at WR.
85. Philadelphia Eagles (from Indianapolis)
Robert Rochell, CB, Central Arkansas
Indy drafts smart. Each pick is true to their board.
86. Tennessee Titans
Milton Williams, DT, Louisiana Tech
Where did the pass rush go on this team? Front seven needs help.
87. New York Jets (from Seattle)
Dylan Moses, OLB, Alabama
The Jets could have a quietly exciting defense next year.
88. Pittsburgh Steelers
Tommy Togiai, DT, Ohio State
After the run game, the Steelers have some older, pricey players they need to replace.
89. Los Angeles Rams
D’Ante Smith, OT, East Carolina
Rams have a looming offensive line retirement.
90. Cleveland Browns
Keith Taylor, CB, Washington
More secondary help. Keep it coming.
91. Minnesota Vikings (from Baltimore)
Ben Cleveland, OG, Georgia
No way the Vikings get through the first three rounds of the draft without taking a guard.
92. Cleveland Browns (from New Orleans)
Baron Browning, ILB, Ohio State
Defense help anywhere they can find it.
93. Green Bay Packers
Pete Werner, OLB, Ohio State
The Packers might actually double up on WR in the first few rounds, but also need help at linebacker.
94. Buffalo Bills
Paulson Adebo, CB, Stanford
They have an all-world CB, but need more help.
95. Baltimore Ravens (from Kansas City)
Cade Johnson, WR, South Dakota State
The Ravens need more accuracy from their QB outside of the hashes, but it is true they could use some help at WR.
96. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Patrick Jones II, DE, Pittsburgh
The Bucs biggest needs are on the edge, and constant improving on offensive line due to their scheme.
Projected Compensatory Picks:
New England Patriots
Caden Sterns, S, Texas
Very football smart, and Patriots need to get younger on defense, especially in the secondary.
Los Angeles Chargers
Ade Ogundeji, DE, Notre Dame
The Chargers could be helped with some youth with the pass rush.
New Orleans Saints
Jalen Camp, WR, Georgia Tech
The Saints have a well rounded roster, but have a lot of salary cap issues and need to get cheaper at a number of positions.
Quinn Meinerz, OG/C, Wisconsin-Whitewater
Dallas’ biggest issue is what to do with their QB situation, but also have to stabilize their once vaunted O-line.
Tre McKitty, TE, Georgia
McKitty was not used much as a receiver at Georgia, but has shown the potential to be an offensive weapon along with this run and pass blocking skills.
Detroit Lions (from LAR)
Damar Hamlin, S, Pitt
The Lions now have a GM that has found some gems in the secondary in the draft.
San Francisco 49ers
Malcolm Koonce, OLB, Buffalo
The 49ers will have a lot of work to do to replace their DC, and may put a bit more emphasis on their linebackers.
Los Angeles Rams
Cornell Powell, WR, Clemson
The Rams have done a great job at finding WRs in the 3rd round.
Eric Stokes, CB, Georgia
The Ravens aren’t biting in free agency, and need some help intheir secondary.
New Orleans Saints
Jordan Smith, DE, UAB
The Saints actually have a coach that specializes in pass-rush.
