It is here, my final mock draft before the 2021 NFL Draft. It's been a long road, filled with a mock draft every week since the start of football season, and I feel like I'm done with the longest marathon race of my life.

This, of course, is a mock as to what I believe will unfold on draft night, which believe it or not, or what Kyle Shanahan tells you, will eventually get here. We know the first two picks (or are at least 99% positive Zach Wilson will land with the Jets at No. 2). After that? Mass chaos. 

NFL Mock Draft
Round 1
Round 1 - Pick 1
Clemson • 6'6" / 220 lbs
Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
1st
POSITION RNK
1st
Can't wait to watch the nine-minute Trevor Lawrence highlight package once the Jaguars go on the clock before they make the pick. Like we haven't seen Lawrence highlights this draft season.
Round 1 - Pick 2
BYU • 6'2" / 214 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Jets
PROSPECT RNK
2nd
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Jets seemingly settled on Wilson early in the process, and he's a good fit in Mike LaFleur's scheme.
Round 1 - Pick 3
North Dakota State • 6'4" / 226 lbs
Projected Team
San Francisco
PROSPECT RNK
9th
POSITION RNK
4th
I refuse to believe Kyle Shanahan will pick Mac Jones at No. 3 overall until it actually happens.
Round 1 - Pick 4
Florida • 6'6" / 245 lbs
Projected Team
Atlanta
PROSPECT RNK
10th
POSITION RNK
4th
A trade down is not out of the question, but the Matt Ryan restructure signaled Atlanta wants to go all in now.
Round 1 - Pick 5
LSU • 6'0" / 201 lbs
Projected Team
Cincinnati
PROSPECT RNK
6th
POSITION RNK
1st
When you really think about it -- it would've been strange for the Bengals not to pick Joe Burrow's top receiver in Round 1.
Round 1 - Pick 6
Alabama • 6'0" / 170 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
4th
POSITION RNK
1st
Maybe all the "worry" about Smith's weight was partially pushed by the Dolphins, just like they made a concerted effort to confuse the masses about which quarterback they would pick last year.
  Mock Trade from Detroit Lions
Round 1 - Pick 7
Alabama • 6'3" / 214 lbs
Projected Team
New England
PROSPECT RNK
21st
POSITION RNK
5th
At this point, Bill Belichick can slide into Round 1 without having to pay an exorbitant price. And the Belichick-Nick Saban connection needs to be considered here. New England sends one of its fourth-round picks in 2021, first and fourth-round picks in 2022 to Detroit and gets a third-round pick in return for this move.
Round 1 - Pick 8
Oregon • 6'5" / 331 lbs
Projected Team
Carolina
PROSPECT RNK
2nd
POSITION RNK
1st
The Panthers would love to trade down but see the long-term view with the youthful Sewell here.
Round 1 - Pick 9
Ohio State • 6'3" / 227 lbs
Projected Team
Denver
PROSPECT RNK
5th
POSITION RNK
3rd
Hello, crowded quarterback room. Denver only moved a sixth-round pick to acquire Teddy Bridgewater, so it shouldn't stop them from picking Fields here.
Round 1 - Pick 10
South Carolina • 6'1" / 200 lbs
Projected Team
Dallas
PROSPECT RNK
15th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Cowboys go with the more athletic man specialist, Horn, over Surtain here to bolster the secondary.
Round 1 - Pick 11
Alabama • 5'10" / 182 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Giants
PROSPECT RNK
13th
POSITION RNK

The Giants go all-in offensively for Year 3 of Daniel Jones.
Round 1 - Pick 12
Alabama • 6'2" / 202 lbs
Projected Team
Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK
7th
POSITION RNK
2nd
Surtain is a high-floor prospect who'll help bring more respectability to the Philadelphia secondary
Round 1 - Pick 13
Northwestern • 6'4" / 315 lbs
Projected Team
L.A. Chargers
PROSPECT RNK
11th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Chargers let the draft come to them and pick their franchise left tackle to protect their young franchise quarterback.
Round 1 - Pick 14
Miami (FL) • 6'5" / 266 lbs
Projected Team
Minnesota
PROSPECT RNK
22nd
POSITION RNK

Phillips fits the traditional size/speed/athleticism blend the Vikings look for in their edge rushers.
  Mock Trade from New England Patriots
Round 1 - Pick 15
Penn State • 6'3" / 248 lbs
Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
8th
POSITION RNK
1st
Linebacker is a big hole for the rebuilding Lions, and Detroit likes, among many other things, that Parsons is so young.
Round 1 - Pick 16
Tulsa • 6'4" / 260 lbs
Projected Team
Arizona
PROSPECT RNK
19th
POSITION RNK
4th
The Cardinals pick another linebacker in Round 1, and Collins can play on the edge in obvious passing situations.
Round 1 - Pick 17
USC • 6'5" / 308 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
26th
POSITION RNK
1st
After their mass exodus on the offensive line this offseason, the Raiders get a versatile guard-tackle combo in Vera-Tucker.
Round 1 - Pick 18
Georgia • 6'3" / 240 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
21st
POSITION RNK

The Dolphins go with the high upside of Ojulari to pair with Emmanuel Ogbah.
Round 1 - Pick 19
Virginia Tech • 6'5" / 315 lbs
Projected Team
Washington
PROSPECT RNK
14th
POSITION RNK
3rd
Home-run pick for The Football Team, an organization that's done a fine job rounding out its roster this offseason.
Round 1 - Pick 20
Oklahoma State • 6'6" / 320 lbs
Projected Team
Chicago
PROSPECT RNK
33rd
POSITION RNK
6th
Matt Nagy's job is on the line in 2021, meaning he needs to get the most out of Andy Dalton. The Bears need a right tackle and need meets value here with Jenkins.
Round 1 - Pick 21
Michigan • 6'3" / 265 lbs
Projected Team
Indianapolis
PROSPECT RNK
13th
POSITION RNK
1st
The offensive line and receiver are needs, but the value is too good here for Indianapolis to pass on Paye.
Round 1 - Pick 22
Ole Miss • 5'10" / 178 lbs
Projected Team
Tennessee
PROSPECT RNK
25th
POSITION RNK
5th
The Titans go back to Ole Miss to strengthen their receiver group with the speedy, sure-handed Moore.

Pittsburgh

POSITION RNK

New Orleans
PROSPECT RNK
16th

Projected Team
Buffalo
PROSPECT RNK
59th
POSITION RNK

Minnesota • 6'1" / 193 lbs
Projected Team
Baltimore
PROSPECT RNK
54th
POSITION RNK

Tampa Bay
