2021 NFL Mock Draft 5.0: Final seven-round prediction, with trades

The 2021 NFL Draft is finally here, and it is time for the final mock draft. Time to see which prospects go where...

NCAA Football: Sugar Bowl-Ohio State vs Clemson Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

The wait is over! We are only a matter of hours away from knowing what the Steelers will do with the 24th pick in the draft. Currently holding eight picks in the draft, GM Kevin Colbert is likely to leave all options on the table when it comes to what the Steelers do with their draft capital.

As always, this mock is about what I think will happen, not what I want to happen. My wish is that the Steelers take whatever offer is given (within reason) to move down. However, there is no guarantee the Steelers get an offer, and there is no guarantee the Steelers would see any potential offer to move down as something that is wise. I did project some trades, but I did not go overboard with them. There were a few trades that I thought about mocking (Bufalo and Indianapolis, Denver and Atlanta, and a few others), but I did not mock it unless I had enough evidence and faith that it could actually happen.

One interesting thing that I thought was funny. I finished my first round predictions on Monday, and after I finished, I happened to look at Peter King’s mock draft. When I looked at his mock draft from last year, I noticed that he had eleven correct picks in the first round, which is very good, by the way. Eight of his top ten selections were correct. In my mock draft, I only have eleven picks similar to Peter King’s mock draft, and exactly eight of the top ten are the same. That was by total accident, but I am excited to see how close these projections are.

There is always a couple surprising picks in round one, and the first one comes at pick 11. I am forgoing the rumors of the Giants being most interested in Micah Parsons, Jaycee Horn, and DeVonta Smith. I do not have a ton of confidence in this pick, but Jaelan Phillips seems like a Dave Gettleman pick: a big pass-rusher who is coming off a productive season. It is a reach, but we have seen Gettleman reach for players before. The other surprise comes at pick 31. Most people do not see Davis Mills as a first round prospect, but it has been a couple years since we last saw someone trading into the end of the first round for a quarterback not expected to go night one. We used to see it more frequently, and it seems overdue. Plus, Tony Pauline has said that there are teams who have first round grades on him. That does not mean he will go in round one, but a team that is worried about Tampa Bay taking him will likely want to move ahead of them.

My biggest worry is the third pick. Ever since the 49ers traded up, my gut has told me that Trey Lance is their guy. However, I have determined that mocking Trey Lance and being wrong would potentially cause more wrong picks afterward than if I mocked Mac Jones and was wrong. In the end, I went with the safer option.

As always, let me know your thoughts on this mock in the comment section below. Let’s get to the final mock for the 2021 NFL Draft!

Other possibilities: A. Leatherwood, T. Jenkins, C. Darrisaw, C. Barmore, J. Phillips, K. Paye, J. Owusu-Koramoah
18. Dolphins- Azeez Ojulari — EDGE — Georgia
Other possibilities: N. Harris, J. Owusu-Koramoah, J. Phillips, K. Paye, T. Jenkins
**PROJECTED TRADE** (Washington receives picks 22 and 100)
19. Titans- Teven Jenkins — OL — Oklahoma State
Other possibilities: C. Farley, E. Moore, G. Newsome II
20. Bears- Alijah Vera-Tucker — OL — USC

21. Colts- Kwity Paye — DE — Michigan
Other possibilities: J. Phillips, C. Farley, L. Eichenberg, T. Jenkins
22. *Washington- Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah — ILB — Notre Dame

23. Jets- Caleb Farley — CB — Virginia Tech
Other possibilities: T. Etienne, N. Harris, G. Newsome II, T. Jenkins, A. Ojulari
24. Steelers- Najee Harris — RB — Alabama
I am not a fan of taking a running back in round one, but it seems as if the Steelers are leaning toward taking one of the top two backs if one of them is still available. My hope is that the Steelers trade back assuming Christian Darrisaw is gone, but I do not see the Steelers doing that if a player they like is available. Harris is very similar to Le’Veon Bell coming out of college. He is not the fastest running back, but he has tremendous patience and good power. He will need a good offensive line, but maybe the Steelers feel they can fix the line on day two.
Other possibilities: T. Etienne, L. Dickerson, C. Humphrey, T. Jenkins, Z. Collins
25. Jaguars- Trevon Moehrig — S — TCU
Other possibilities: C. Barmore, E. Moore, C. Farley, L. Eichenberg

29. Packers- Greg Newsome II — CB — Northwestern
Other possibilities: T. Marshall, R. Bateman, A. Samuel, Jr., J. Davis
30. Bills- Travis Etienne — RB — Clemson
Other possibilities: J. Williams, J. Oweh, G. Newsome, A. Robinson, A. Samuel, Jr.
**PROJECTED TRADE** (Ravens receive picks 51, 74, and a 2022 4th round pick)
31. Washington- Davis Mills — QB — Stanford
Other possibilities: K. Mond, N. Bolton, R. Grant, T. Marshall, best available OT
32. Buccaneers- Jamin Davis — ILB — Kentucky
Other possibilities: C. Barmore, J. Oweh, D. Mills

Overview: To me, Penei Sewell is the best pick for the Bengals, but it is the Bengals, and they do not always do the best thing. Losing A.J. Green was a hit to Cincinnati’s receiver depth, and they may like the idea of pairing Burrow with his former college teammate. I also thought hard about Sewell to Miami and am starting to believe that he is who Miami would take if he is available. That said, I have had Waddle slotted there all week, and I am not confident enough to change it. The Raiders were another difficult pick. They generally reach for a productive player from a major college program in round one, but Collins has the old-school size that Jon Gruden would love. However, BTSC member big_jay71 makes a good argument for Alex Leatherwood, which you can read in his final mock draft here. I am sticking with Collins, but if they take an offensive lineman, Teven Jenkins and Alex Leatherwood both make sense. After failing with Isaiah Wilson last year, I also see the Titans as a potential landing spot for Jenkins. They have shown a lot of interest in him and may try to leapfrog their division rival to secure his services.


Round 2

33. Jaguars- Rondale Moore — WR — Purdue
34. Jets- Javonte Williams — RB — North Carolina
35. Falcons- Carlos Basham — DE — Wake Forest
**PROJECTED TRADE** (Dolphins receive picks 52, 204, 221, and a 2022 3rd)
36. Bears- Kellen Mond — QB — Texas A&M
37. Eagles- Eric Stokes — CB — Georgia
38. Bengals- Liam Eichenberg — OT — Notre Dame
**PROJECTED TRADE** (Panthers receive picks 47, 118, and 159)
39. Chargers- Asante Samuel, Jr. — CB — Florida State
40. Broncos- Payton Turner — DL — Houston
41. Lions- Kadarius Toney — WR — Florida
42. Giants- Dyami Brown — WR — North Carolina
43. 49ers- Creed Humphrey — C — Oklahoma
44. Cowboys- Milton Williams — DL — Louisiana
45. Jaguars- Samuel Cosmi — OT — Texas
46. Patriots- Tyson Campbell — CB — Georgia
47. *Panthers- Aaron Robinson — CB — UCF
48. Raiders- Gregory Rousseau — EDGE — Miami
49. Cardinals- TuTu Atwell — WR — Louisville
50. Dolphins- Spencer Brown — OT — Northern Iowa
51. *Ravens- Joseph Ossai — EDGE — Texas
52. *Dolphins- Nick Bolton — ILB — Missouri
53. Titans- Terrace Marshall, Jr. — WR — LSU
**PROJECTED TRADE** (Colts receive picks 60 and 105)
54. Saints- Kyle Trask — QB — Florida
55. Steelers- Landon Dickerson — C — Alabama
Dickerson’s injury concerns scare me, but if he falls to round two, I would be surprised if the Steelers pass. His combine medicals came back with mixed opinions, but if he is fully heathy by week one, he can step in as the starter immediately. He is not terribly mobile, but he is a mauler in the run game and Mr. Consistent in the passing game. Quinn Meinerz and Spencer Brown are also in play here.
56. Seahawks- Brady Christensen — OT — BYU
57. Rams- Quinn Meinerz — C/G — Wisconsin-Whitewater
58. Ravens- Alex Leatherwood — OT — Alabama
59. Browns- Ifeatu Melifonwu — CB — Syracuse
60. *Colts- Dillon Radunz — OT — North Dakota State
61. Bills- Jayson Oweh — EDGE — Penn State
62. Packers- D’Wayne Eskridge — WR — Western Michigan
**PROJECTED TRADE** (Chiefs receive picks 68 and 148)
63. Falcons- Richie Grant — S — UCF
64. Buccaneers- Levi Onwuzurike — DL — Washington


Round 3

65. Jaguars- Pat Freiermuth — TE — Penn State
66. Jets- Ronnie Perkins — EDGE — Oklahoma
67. Texans- Josh Myers — C — Ohio State
68. *Chiefs- Anthony Schwartz — WR — Auburn
69. Bengals- Wyatt Davis — G — Ohio State
70. Eagles- Baron Browning — ILB — Ohio State
71. Broncos- Jabril Cox — ILB — LSU
72. Lions- Kelvin Joseph — CB — Kentucky
73. Panthers- Hunter Long — TE — Boston College
74. *Ravens- Ben Cleveland — G — Georgia
75. Cowboys- Walker Little — OT — Stanford
76. Giants- Trey Smith — G — Tennessee
77. Chargers- Tommy Tremble — TE — Notre Dame
78. Vikings- Jevon Holland — S — Oregon
79. Raiders- Jalen Mayfield — OT — Michigan
80. Raiders- Daviyon Nixon — DT — Iowa
81. Dolphins- Michael Carter — RB — North Carolina
82. Washington- Jackson Carman — OT — Clemson
83. Bears- Shi Smith — WR — South Carolina
84. Eagles- James Hudson — OT — Cincinnati
85. Titans- Robert Rochell — CB — Central Arkansas
86. Jets- Tylan Wallace — WR — Oklahoma State
87. Steelers- Shaun Wade — CB — Ohio State
Wade struggled when he was forced to play on the outside last season, but he was tremendous as a slot corner in 2019. Personally, I think it would be easier to find a boundary cornerback in the draft and put Sutton in the slot, but it seems as if the Steelers are confident in Sutton’s ability to play the outside opposite Joe Haden. If that is the case, I would expect the Steelers to grab a slot corner in round three or four, and Wade is a nice fit with his size and experience. His teammate, Trey Sermon, could also be in play if the Steelers do not take one of the top three backs. Divine Diablo and Tommy Tremble are other possibilities.
88. Rams- Pete Werner — ILB — Ohio State
89. Browns- Cameron McGrone — ILB — Michigan
90. Vikings- Alim McNeill — DT — North Carolina State
**PROJECTED TRADE** (Browns receive pick 102 and a 2022 4th round pick)
91. 49ers- Paulson Adebo — CB — Stanford
92. Packers- Kendrick Green — C/G — Illinois
93. Bills- Nashon Wright — CB — Oregon State
94. Ravens- Ar’Darius Washington — S — TCU
95. Buccaneers- Janarius Robinson — EDGE — Florida State
96. Patriots- Amari Rodgers — RB/WR — Clemson
97. Chargers- Amon-Ra St. Brown — WR — USC
98. Saints- Dylan Moses — LB — Alabama
99. Cowboys- Andre Cisco — S — Syracuse
100. Washington- Nico Collins — WR — Michigan
101. Lions- Divine Diablo — S — Virginia Tech
102. Browns- Joe Tryon — EDGE — Washington
103. Rams- Stone Forsythe — OT — Florida
104. Ravens- Derrick Barnes — ILB — Purdue
105. Colts- Trill Williams — CB — Syracuse


Round 4

106. Jaguars- Tommy Togai — DL — Ohio State
107. Jets- Elijah Molden — CB — Washington
**PROJECTED TRADE** (Falcons receive picks 121 and 162)
108. Raiders- Jamie Newman — QB — Wake Forest
109. Texans- Tre Brown — CB — Oklahoma
110. Browns- Trey Hill — C — Georgia
111. Bengals- Dayo Obeyingbo — DL — Vanderbilt
112. Lions- Josh Palmer — WR — Tennessee
113. Panthers- Seth Williams — WR — Auburn
114. Broncos- Kenneth Gainwell — RB — Memphis
115. Cowboys- Patrick Jones II — EDGE — Pittsburgh
116. Giants- Benjamin St. Juste — CB — Minnesota
117. 49ers- Shakur Brown — CB — Michigan State
118. *Panthers- Tyrie Gillespie — S — Missouri
119. Vikings- Ambry Thomas — CB — Michigan
120. Patriots- Khalil Herbert — RB — Virginia Tech
121. *Falcons- Trey Sermon — RB — Ohio State
122. *Lions- Robert Hainsey — OL — Notre Dame
123. Eagles- Cameron Sample — DL — Tulane
124. Washington- Talanoa Hufanga — S — USC
125. Vikings- Aaron Banks — G — Notre Dame
126. Titans- Quincy Roche — EDGE — Miami
**PROJECTED TRADE** (Colts receive Zach Ertz)
127. Eagles- Simi Fehoko — WR — Stanford
128. Steelers- Daelin Hayes — EDGE — Notre Dame
Hayes is best suited for a 4-3 scheme, but the Steelers have shown interest in him. I would find Patrick Johnson and Malcolm Koonce as better fits, but Hayes is a solid run defender, which is something I think the Steelers want their #3 edge rusher to be. He will never be a sack artist, but he has good hand usage and a natural feel for getting after the quarterback. Keep an eye on Talanoa Hufanga and Ambry Thomas if they happen to fall to this point.
129. Seahawks- Israel Mukuamu — CB — South Carolina
130. Jaguars- Javian Hawkins — RB — Louisville
131. Ravens- Cade Johnson — WR — South Dakota State
132. Browns- Demetric Felton — RB/WR — UCLA
133. Saints- Olijah Griffin — CB — USC
**PROJECTED TRADE** (Vikings receive picks 145 and 249)
134. Jaguars- Kary Vincent, Jr. — CB — LSU
135. Packers- Chazz Surratt — ILB — North Carolina
136. Ravens- Chris Rumph III — EDGE — Duke
137. Buccaneers- Dazz Newsome — WR — North Carolina
138. Cowboys- Tre McKitty — TE — Florida State
139. Patriots- Ernest Jones — LB — South Carolina
140. Steelers- Jaylon Moore — OT — Western Michigan
Another Western Michigan offensive tackle? I would be very disappointed if the Steelers did not take a left tackle in the first three rounds, but I could see the Steelers trusting their ability to find value at that position on day three. Moore’s tape is actually really solid. He has some sneaky power as a run-blocker, but he doesn’t always finish blocks. As a pass-blocker, he is a fluid mover and displays excellent hand usage, but he does not have great balance. The best comparison I can give is Chuckwuma Okorafor with slightly more upside as a run-blocker. His issues are fixable, and he has starter upside, but left tackle is a position the Steelers really need to address sooner than this. This is not a bad pick at all, but if the Steelers have an opportunity to grab Samuel Cosmi, Walker Little, or another high-profile tackle on day two, I would be disappointed if they passed on that opportunity.
141. Rams- Malcolm Koonce — EDGE — Buffalo
142. Packers- Jaylen Twyman — DL — Pittsburgh
143. Vikings- Monty Rice — ILB — Georgia
144. Chiefs- Rashad Weaver — EDGE — Pittsburgh


Round 5

145. Vikings- Jordan Smith — EDGE — UAB
146. Jets- D’Ante Smith — OT — East Carolina
147. Texans- Brevin Jordan — TE — Miami
148. *Chiefs- Drake Jackson — C — Kentucky
149. Bengals- Jaret Patterson — RB — Buffalo
150. Eagles- Rhomandre Stevenson — RB — Oklahoma
151. Panthers- Tony Fields II — ILB — West Virginia
152. Broncos- Josh Ball — OT — Marshall
153. Lions- Kenny Yeboah — TE — Ole Miss
154. Giants- Benden Jaimes — OT — Nebraska
155. 49ers- Sadarius Hutcherson — G — South Carolina

160. Cardinals- Chuba Hubbard — RB — Oklahoma State
161. Bills- Jay Tufele — DT — USC
162. *Falcons- Brandon Stephens — CB — SMU
163. Washington- Deommodore Lenoir — CB — Oregon
164. Bears- Jamar Johnson — S — Indiana
165. Colts- Frank Darby — WR — Arizona State
166. Titans- Marlon Tuipolutu — DT — USC
167. Raiders- Michael Menet — C — Penn State
168. Vikings- Osa Odighizua — DL — UCLA
169. Browns- Bobby Brown III — DT — Texas A&M
170. Jaguars- Jonathan Cooper — EDGE — Ohio State
171. Ravens- Royce Newman — G — Ole Miss
172. 49ers- Chauncey Golston — DE — Iowa
173. Packers- Dan Moore — OT — Texas A&M

175. Chiefs- Keith Taylor, Jr. — CB — Washington
176. Buccaneers- Jack Anderson — G — Texas Tech
177. Patriots- Ellerson Smith — EDGE — Northern Illinois
178. Packers- Kylin Hill — RB — Mississippi State
179. Cowboys- Damar Hamlin — S — Pittsburgh
180. 49ers- Jamien Sherwood — S — Auburn
181. Chiefs- James Wiggins — S — Cincinnati
182. Falcons- Jimmy Morrissey — C — Pittsburgh
183. Falcons- Josh Imatorbhebhe — WR — Illinois
184. Ravens- Patrick Johnson — EDGE — Tulane


Round 6

185. Chargers- Caden Sterns — S — Texas
186. Jets- Ben Mason — FB — Michigan
187. Falcons- Garrett Wallow — LB — TCU
188. *Lions- Darius Stills — DL — West Virginia
189. Eagles- Marco Wilson — CB — Florida
190. Bengals- Miller Forristall — TE — Alabama
191. Panthers- Wyatt Hubert — EDGE — Kansas State
192. Cowboys- Justin Hilliard — ILB — Ohio State
193. Panthers- Dez Fitzpatrick — WR — Louisville
194. 49ers- Quinton Morris — TE — Bowling Green
195. Texans- Victor Dimukeje — EDGE — Duke
196. Giants- Elijah Mitchell — RB — Louisiana
197. Patriots- Khyris Tonga — DT — BYU
198. Chargers- Hamilcar Rashed — EDGE — Oregon State
199. Vikings- Tay Gowan — CB — UCF
200. Raiders- Paris Ford — S — Pittsburgh
201. Giants- Naquan Jones — DT — Michigan State
202. Bengals- Evan McPherson — K — Florida
203. Texans- David Moore — G — Grambling
204. *Dolphins- Marlon Williams — WR — UCF
205. Titans- Jaelon Darden — WR — North Texas
206. Colts- Marvin Wilson — DT — Florida State
207. Chiefs- Isaiah McDuffie — ILB — Boston College
208. Bears- Darren Hall — CB — San Diego State
209. Rams- Joshua Bledsoe — S — Missouri
210. Ravens- D.J. Daniel — CB — Georgia
211. Browns- Rodarius Williams — CB — Oklahoma State
212. Texans- Tedarrell Slaton — DT — Florida
213. Bills- Marquez Stevenson — WR — Houston
214. Packers- Tariq Thompson — S — San Diego State
215. Titans- Braylon Jones — G — Houston
216. Steelers- Cornell Powell — WR — Clemson
JuJu Smith-Schuster and James Washington are both set to become free agents after the season, and there is not much depth after the top four receivers on the depth chart. The Steelers were at Trevor Lawrence’s early pro day, which does not make much sense from the outside. However, Cornell Powell was catching passes from Lawrence, and I cannot help but wonder if the Steelers actually went to take a look at Powell. He finally earned a large role in Clemson’s offense this season, catching 53 passes for 882 yards and 7 touchdowns. Tight end and defensive back are also in play here.
217. Buccaneers- K.J. Costello — QB — Stanford
218. Saints- Jonathan Marshall — DT — Arkansas
219. Falcons- Ernest Brown IV — EDGE — Northwestern
220. Packers- Avery Williams — CB — Boise State
221. *Dolphins- Noah Gray — TE — Duke
222. Panthers- Larry Roundtree — RB — Missouri
223. Cardinals- Whop Philyor — WR — Indiana
224. Eagles- Adetokunbo Ogundeji — DE — Notre Dame
225. Eagles- Christian Uphoff — S — Illinois State
226. Jets- Michael Strachan — WR — Charleston
227. Cowboys- Carson Green — OT/G — Texas A&M
228. Bears- Ihmir Smith-Marsette — WR — Iowa


Round 7

229. Saints- Joshua Kaindoh — EDGE — Florida State
230. 49ers- Adrian Ealy — OT — Oklahoma
231. 49ers- C.J. Marable — RB — Coastal Carolina
232. Titans- Matt Bushman — TE — BYU
233. Texans- Grant Stuard — ILB — Houston
234. Eagles- Luke Farrell — TE — Ohio State
235. Panthers- Jose Borregales — K — Miami
236. Bills- Chris Garrett — EDGE — Concordia St. Paul
237. Broncos- Jason Pinnock — CB — Pittsburgh
238. Cowboys- Tre Nixon — WR — UCF
239. Broncos- Racey McMath — WR — LSU
240. Eagles- Camaron Cheeseman — LS — Michigan
241. Chargers- LaBryan Ray — DL — Alabama
242. Patriots- Dax Milne — WR — BYU
243. Cardinals- Pooka Williams — RB — Kansas
244. Dolphins- Riley Patterson — K — Memphis
245. Steelers- Jake Funk — RB — Maryland
He’s from Maryland. Do I need to say more? In all seriousness, Funk had an outstanding pro day, displaying his speed and versatility. He would fit well in Matt Canada’s scheme, and it is worth noting that the Steelers seem to be interested. According to Tony Pauline, the Steelers are one of three teams showing a lot of interest in Funk. After the Cornell Powell pick, I do not see how this really makes sense with depth needs at safety and linebacker. However, the Steelers seem committed to adding offensive skill players that fit what Matt Canada wants to do.
246. Washington- Shaun Beyer — TE — Iowa
247. Cardinals- Robert Jones — T/G — Middle Tennessee
248. Colts- Shemar Jean-Charles — CB — Appalachian State
249. *Vikings- Jalen Camp — WR — Georgia Tech
250. Seahawks- Antonio Phillips — CB — Ball State
251. Buccaneers- Jacoby Stevens — S — LSU
252. Rams- Cameron Bynum — CB — California
253. Broncos- Mark Gilbert — CB — Duke
254. Steelers- Jake Hansen — LB — Illinois
The Steelers brought back Vince Williams, but Ulysses Gilbert is injury prone, and both Williams and Robert Spillane are only under contract for this season. Hansen has good closing speed and is quick to fill gaps in the run game. A corner or safety would make a lot of sense here as well.
255. Saints- Jacob Harris — WR — UCF
256. Packers- Tarron Jackson — DE — Coastal Carolina
257. Browns- Nick Niemann — ILB — Iowa
258. Washington- Gerrid Doaks — RB — Cincinnati
259. Buccaneers- Bryce Thompson — CB — Tennessee
