Tim’s Mock Draft 1.0 (w/trades)

By Tim Monk (@Tim_MonkF10Y)


1. Jaguars

Trevor Lawrence (QB)

2. Jets

Zach Wilson (QB)

3. 49ers

Justin Fields (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 and feel this is all a smokescreen. Justin Fields for me the clear #2 prospect at QB, let alone #3.


4. *TRADE* WFT

Trey Lance (QB)

5. Bengals

Penei Sewell (OT)

6. Dolphins (Eagles)

Ja’Marr Chase (WR)

The Falcons at #4 is potentially the pivotal pick for how the rest of the 1st round plays out. Take a QB, then Denver, 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. In this mock I have the Football Team trading up from #19, giving up that pick plus #51, #163, 1st round picks in 2022 and 2023 and a 3rd rd pick in 2022. If I am Washington (and I’m not) i could trade away the foreseeable future as they are probably just a QB and maybe a WR away from being serious contenders. Lance can learn under Fitz until his magic runs out.
If the Falcons stay put, Penei Sewell could easily go here too but the Falcons took 2 offensive Lineman in the 1st round of the 2019 draft. The Dolphins have their pick of the litter at WR, so take your pick. I’ll go Ja’Marr Chase.

7. Lions

Jaylen Waddle (WR)

8. Panthers

Kyle Pitts (TE)

9. Broncos

Micah Parsons (LB)

Like the Falcons, the Lions could go either offence or defence as there are gaping holes all over this roster. As they let Kenny Golladay go, I will opt for offence and a direct replacement for Kenny G. They are a trade back candidate, as are Carolina and they’ll want a QB needy team calling them up on draft night to get maximum value for it whilst still probably being able to take the players they want. If they go defence, Micah Parsons would be the play. He lasts to Denver, who could feasibly trade up for the remaining QB. I think they give Lock another year.


10. Cowboys

Jaycee Horn (CB)

11. Giants

Rashawn Slater (OL)

12. Eagles (SF/MIA)

Patrick Surtain II (CB)

For the NFC East, we have 2 Cornerbacks and an O-Lineman. If I were the Giants, I’d listen to the Patriots/Vikings here and allow them to trade up a few spots back for the Mac Jones suitor and EDGE rushers haven’t been touched yet. If they aren’t sold on Slater, penciling him to the Chargers, they can pick up some more darts to throw at the board whilst getting some other OL talent


13. Chargers

Alijah Vera-Tucker (OL)

14. Vikings

Caleb Farley (CB)

15. Patriots

Mac Jones (QB)

Chargers can sit and wait for whatever offensive lineman falls to them. The Vikings are likely looking for another defensive back as Jeff Gladney joined the list of those that decided to throw away their careers. The Patriots get their QB camp battle with the polarising Mac Jones.


16. Cardinals

Greg Newsome II (CB)

17. Raiders

Jeremiah O-Koramoah (LB)

18. Dolphins

Najee Harris (RB)

Some big needs filled here for Arizona and Vegas. Newsome is possibly the last CB on the board before a bit of a tier drop and theRaiders wouldn’t shock me if they moved back as there is a bunch of Linebackers in this spot. Najee Harris is the 1st RB off the board and suddenly Tua’s grin is a wide as the equator.


19. Falcons (WFT)

Christian Darrisaw (OT)

20. Bears

Teven Jenkins (OT)

21. Ravens *Trade*

DeVonta Smith (WR)

This seems to be the area of the draft that either Tackles or Wide Receivers will get taken as there are no more Cornerbacks in my eyes that are worthy of a 1st round pick. Unlucky for the Colts that 2 get taken prior to their pick, meaning they either have to reach for one or trade back a few spots. They do so here with the Ravens who get an absolute steal in terms of value for the Heismann Trophy Wide Receiver. Ravens give up a future 2nd and 4th to move up 6 spots, and sniper the Titans.

22. Titans

Rashod Bateman (WR)

23. Jets (Seahawks)

Azeez Ojulari (EDGE)

24. Steelers

Travis Etienne (RB)

Thankfully for the Titans, the WR is pretty deep so the Ravens trade up probably wont bother them. Jets address the pass rushing group and the Steelers take an RB with the team trying to still get Ben to another Super Bowl before he retires.


25. Jaguars (Rams)

Kadarius Toney (WR)

26. Browns

Gregory Rousseau (EDGE)

27. Colts (Ravens)

Alex Leatherwood (OT)

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. No dice here, but Toney, wont have to up sticks as the former Florida Gator finds his new home just an hour or 2 east. Couple of Edge players for Browns available here from Miami (Jaelen Phillips also) or Kwity Paye (Michigan) as they look to develop Rousseau and Myles Garrett a perfect mentor for the Raw pass rusher who has limited tape but tremendous upside. Colts get their Tackle.


28. Saints

Jaelen Phillips (EDGE)

29. Packers

Terrace Marshall Jr. (WR)

30. Bills

Jayson Oweh (EDGE)

Aaron Rodgers finally gets a rookie Wide Receiver in Terrace Marshall Jr. Packers do have a few holes but it was clear that when Adams was missing for a short portion last year, this catching group are not ones to rely on, hence why Robert Tonyan was a thing. Saints and Bills beef up their defensive pass rush.


31. Chiefs

Liam Eichenberg (OT)

32. Buccaneers

Kwity Paye (EDGE)

The Super Bowl runners-up address their glaring hole at tackle whilst the Bucs may trade out of this spot and don’t have that many holes to fill after a successful Free Agency.
