NFL Mock Draft (w/Trades) – Tim 2.0

By Tim (@Tim_MonkF10Y)

1. Jaguars

Trevor Lawrence (QB)

2. Jets

Zach Wilson (QB)

3. 49ers

Mac Jones (QB)

No surprises with the 1st 3 selections being Quarterbacks. Lawrence and Wilson pretty much locked in to the #1 and #2 spots and as much as there as been hype over Mac Jones, who was watched by Kyle Shanahan on his underwhelming pro day, I dont rate him personally but have to go with it. There’s too many words being said that he is Kyle Shanahan’s guy. Either way, a huge pick in the grand scheme of things for that Franchise.

4. Falcons

Kyle Pitts (TE)

5. Bengals

Ja’Marr Chase (WR)

6. Dolphins (Eagles)

Devonta Smith (WR)

The Falcons at #4 for me the pivotal pick for how the rest of the 1st round plays out. Take a QB, then New England, Washington et al will all be scrambling to get the remaining 1 of the “big 5”. If they go Sewell or Pitts, you could see a lot less trades happening. New Falcons GM Terry Fontenot needs to establish how far he thinks this team is away from being a contender again. they’ve restructured Matt Ryan’s contract and I’ll take the gamble they leave the QB situation until next year. I think the Falcons will make the pick here. Penei Sewell is definitely an option, but have recently spent multiple 1sts on OL so may opt for a playmaker, especially if the Julio Jones trade rumours come to fruition. Similar comments apply to Miami, and they are probably more wise to pick up Sewell and spend their later 1st rounder or a 2nd rounder on this deep WR class. However, it’s unlikely Tua’s former teammates Waddle and the selection here in Smith will be available at 18.

7. Lions

Jaylen Waddle (WR)

8. *TRADE* Bears

Justin Fields (QB)

9. *TRADE*Eagles

Patrick Surtain II (CB)

I would be shocked if the Lions (7), Panthers (8) and Broncos (9) all stick here. With Lance and Fields both slipping down, it brings New England in to play as well as possibly Chicago and Washington. The cost for New England is a lot cheaper but with talks of their darling Jimmy Garoppolo possibly come back for a dirt cheap price, Chicago pull the trigger. Why Chicago? They had reported interest in Russell Wilson and between him and Lance, Fields fits the mould. Teams will be ruing letting Fields drop, especially the 49ers. I also think the Eagles may trade up a few spots with Devner to go and get a guy they like. Here i’ve gone Surtain but wouldn’t be surprised if they go WR if Waddle/Smith fall (Alabama connection). It will only cost a 2nd rounder or maybe even a 3rd, so their 1st they accumulated moving back 6 with Miami is intact for 2022.

10. Cowboys

Jaycee Horn (CB)

11. Giants

Kwity Paye (EDGE)

12. Broncos (via Eagles)

Micah Parsons (LB)

Dallas fills a position of need and whilst the Eagles trade ahead, like they seemingly do every year, they aren’t necessarily being “sniped” here. Jaycee Horn could easily prove to be the next Jalen Ramsey. Dave Gettleman loves the trenches more than Tony Robinson did on Time Team in the 90s, so Edge, offensive and defensive lineman are in play. He takes the Kwity Paye when he perhaps be trading back and offering Rashawn Slater’s name about, to the delight of Chargers fans. Denver do well and still get a top 10 guy, whilst accumulating picks further back, though dont be shocked to see Parsons fall due to personality concerns.

13. Chargers

Rashawn Slater (OL)


Trey Lance (QB)

15. Patriots

Jeremiah O-Koramoah (LB)

Chargers can sit and wait for whatever offensive lineman falls to them and hit the jackpot with Slater out of Northwestern. The fall for Lance stops as Washington plays chicken and wins. Ryan Fitzpatrick is not a 17 game season guy and would be a perfect mentor for Trey Lance who needs the playing time and could come in after the first 4/5 weeks.

16. Cardinals

Greg Newsome II (CB)

17. Raiders

Jamin Davis (LB)

18. Dolphins

Alijah Vera-Tucker (OT)

Some big needs filled here for Arizona and Vegas with P2 leaving Glendale for Arizona and Newsome is possibly the call over Farley with his injury concerns and the Raiders wouldn’t shock me if they moved back as there is a bunch of Linebackers in this spot. AVT is the tackle that will be paired with Tua for the long haul.

19. Vikings (via WFT)

Caleb Farley (CB)

20.Panthers (via Bears)

Teven Jenkins (OT)

21. Colts

Christian Darrisaw (OT)

Vikings also get potentially huge value with Farley at 19 though will need to overcome injuries before a couple of lineman for Darnold and Wentz, 2 QBs crying out for a secure pocket.

22. Titans

Rashod Bateman (WR)

23. Jets (Seahawks)

Azeez Ojulari (EDGE)

24. Steelers

Najee Harris (RB)

Titans address the hole left by Corey Davis, a former 1st round WR selection of theirs. Jets address the pass rushing group and the Steelers take an RB with 3 down capabilities and the team trying to still get Ben to another Super Bowl before he retires.

25. Jaguars (Rams)

Christian Barmore (DL)

26. Browns

Jalen Phillips (EDGE)

27. Ravens

Jayson Oweh (EDGE)

Jaguars could add to their WR core here and help out Trevor Lawrence, I wouldn’t be surprised if they took Etienne if he was still on the board to give #1 overall a familiar face in the backfield with his Clemson teammate. Couple of Edge players for Browns available here from Miami (Jaelen Phillips also) or Kwity Paye (Mic and Myles Garrett a perfect mentor for the Raw pass rusher who has limited tape but tremendous upside. Ravens will address either EDGE, WR or OL and there are whispers they are trading back one of the 2 picks. Oweh is a great selection in the late 1st

28. Saints

Zaven Collins (LB)

29. Packers

Asante Samuel Jr (CB)

30. Bills

Gregory Rousseau (EDGE)

Don’t rule out a Saints trade up for a Cornerback but here i have them taking a the linebacker from Tulsa. Packers should go WR or CB here but they haven’t exactly played by the rulebook recently. Bills don’t need a lot but the do need a bit of defensive help/

31. Ravens (via KC)

Elijah Moore (WR)

32. Buccaneers

Alex Leatherwood (OT)

The Ravens address the WR position with their 2nd pick and think the Buccaneers will explore options to trade out of the 1st round but good luck trying to pick that trade.
