Click here for an updated Mock Draft – Super Bowl Edition

The NFL Playoffs are finally here with Super Wild Card Weekend! We get one extra team/game in the Playoffs and that means 18 teams have already turned their attention to the 2021 NFL Draft. Bob & Jon share their top 18 picks in a 2021 NFL Mock Draft.

Bob is our Fantasy Football IDP writer and will focus on defensive player blurbs below.

Jon is our Devy Fantasy Football writer and will focus on offensive player blurbs below.

It’s pretty much a lock that Trevor Lawrence (Clemson) will be drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the first overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

What will the Miami Dolphins do with two of the top 18 picks?

There are serious question marks surrounding the New York Jets pick (2nd overall) and the Atlanta Falcons picks (4th 0verall). Will either team also draft a quarterback?

If the Jets decide Justin Fields (Ohio St.)  or Zach Wilson (BYU) are the future of their franchise, where will they trade Sam Darnold and what value does he hold?

Is Atlanta ready to select Matt Ryan‘s replacement?

Find out what Bob & Jon believe each franchise will do with their top 5 picks!

7.) Detroit LionsMicah Parsons, Michigan, LB

With a lot of chatter feeding the narrative of Detroit chasing another Defensive minded coach in either Robert Saleh (San Fran’s DC) or Matt Eberflus, I like to think they’ll start by drafting a player that can be the heart and soul of their defense.

Parsons is easily my number 1 IDP Target in rookie drafts this offseason. His ability to work his way through blocks and get to the ball carrier, along with his unique ability to rush the passer off the edge and blitz the middle, leaves A LOT of room for statistical production.

8.) Carolina PanthersPatrick Surtain, Alabama, CB

I do think there’s a decent chance that the Panthers go Trey Lance here, and I think that comes down to whoever they bring on as their new General Manager. Do they want to build another year around Teddy Bridgewater, or do they want to draft their guy now?

Either way, I like Surtain here. Carolina spent each of their seven draft picks last year to address the defense, and I like to think that trend continues.

Drafting a corner to play against the big bad WRs of the NFC South in Mike Evans, Chris Godwin (upcoming free agent), Michael Thomas, Calvin Ridley, and Julio Jones. They need to build that defense up to have a chance to compete in the future.

I’m not usually a fan of snagging corners in IDP, but Surtain has my interest. He makes tackles, and when I say makes tackles, he tackles people through the ground. On top of that, he’s a playmaker. Between tackles, interceptions and passes defended I think he’ll end up an IDP value at CB.

9.) Denver BroncosCaleb Farley, Virginia Tech, CB

The Broncos have a lot to do to fix this team.  Building a defense in a division with Patrick Mahomes seems like a good approach.

I really enjoyed looking at Farley’s film. He’s a big, physical corner who’s a little handsy and might see some PI calls early in his career. Farley needs some polish but he has some serious potential.

13.) Los Angeles ChargersKwity Paye, Michigan, EDGE

With Melvin Ingram likely on his way out this move almost makes too much sense. Kwity Paye has shown to be more of a run defender in college as opposed to a pass rusher. I believe he can develop as a pass rusher and being slotted across from Joey Bosa is an added bonus.

My one knock on his film is he sets up so low to the ground it seems he uses so much of his early burst popping upward as opposed to bursting forward. If this can get cleaned up I think that’ll be a good first step towards developing his pass rush.

16.) Arizona CardinalsJaycee Horn, South Carolina, CB

Horn is flying under the radar at the moment, which is highly beneficial to the Cardinals who could really use a star corner.

With Peterson aging, it’s time to look forward. Byron Murphy has shown promise, and I think between Murphy and Horn these guys could form a nice young duo for the future of this defense.

They need help on the defensive line as well but corners that can cover will help the front line as well.

17.) Las Vegas RaidersGregory Rousseau, Miami, EDGE

Personally, I don’t know if I’d slot Rousseau into my first round mock. But the Raiders are just the team to reach on a high upside low floor DL.

Remember Clelin Ferrell? Exactly. You don’t.

I look at his film and I just don’t see it. He’s a freak athlete but he’s got a lot to develop before he’s a viable pass rusher in this league.

2.) New York Jets – Penei Sewell, Oregon, OT

I think this pick will hinge on what the new coaching regime wants to do, but Sewell is a generational talent at the offensive tackle position. Pair Sewell with last year’s pick, Mekhi Becton, and the Jets offensive line instantly look appealing to any QB for years to come.

3.) Miami Dolphins – Ja’Marr Chase, Alabama, WR

Despite the season Devonta Smith has had, I still think Chase will be the first WR off of the board. He did not play in the 2020 season, but he is coming off of a remarkable season at LSU in 2019. 84 rec, 1,780 yards, and 20 TDs is nothing to laugh at.

Many thought he could have been the top WR taken in the 2020 draft. He is the perfect weapon to develop alongside Tua Tagovailoa in Miami.

4.) Atlanta Falcons – Justin Fields, Ohio St, QB
7.) Detroit Lions – Zach Wilson, BYU, QB

Yes, both Atlanta and Detroit have solid QBs in place with hefty contracts, but if you have the chance to potentially take your future QB, you cannot pass that up. In these spots, both Fields (a Georgia native) and Wilson can sit for a year if needed and learn behind two veterans who have excelled at the position.

11.) New York GiantsJaylen Waddle, Alabama, WR

Many thought he would have the season that Smith had this season, before going down with an ankle injury. Waddle is as explosive as any WR in this class. With a good combine, he very well could jump both Chase and Smith and be the first WR taken.

The Giants could use an upgrade at the WR position to help Daniel Jones. They could also sure up their offensive line here, but adding Waddle to the mix may be too enticing to pass.

15.) New England PatriotsKyle Pitts, Florida, TE

We all know Coach Bill loves his TEs and Pitts is a freak of an athlete at the position. There is a chance that he does not fall out of the top 10, but Bill won’t let him slip through his fingers if he does.

Pitts was dominant at Florida, oftentimes uncoverable (43 rec, 770 yds, 12TDs). He will be a matchup nightmare at the next level, lining up all over the field with the ability. to run almost any route.

Stay tuned for NFL Mock Draft updates Super Bowl weekend, NFL Combine week and the days leading up to the 2021 NFL Draft!
