2021 NFL mock draft - FINAL

Whew. Quite the journey this year. Always a fun time trying to make sense of picks 1-32 not to mention the Washington Football Team's scenarios, but this was a particularly chaotic ride for all the obvious reasons (pandemic, no Combine, etc). For me and the mock draft, it ends here. Pencils down, fingers crossed.


For the purposes of The Huddle Report's national contest, points are awarded for players selected in the first round (1) and correctly paired with a team (2) regardless of where in the 1-32 range. I considered trades, especially the Patriots and Broncos moving up for quarterbacks (or the Chargers/Giants for Penei Sewell), but ultimately skipped them. It's hard enough to project players in some order without guessing the trades.


(For those wondering what's with the site, I'll eventually get around to populating this with some of my older work. Since I'm not tasked with writing The Athletic's definitive final mock, mine lives here.)
