The NFL draft of 2021, the 86th annual “meeting of players” in the league, continues with the second and third rounds on Friday night.
After a rich Thursday in Cleveland, all 32 teams are scheduled to pick Day 2. – The Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks are all sitting outside 1st round after previously doing trades for fortified veterans But they will enter the battle – although the Texans are not scheduled until the 3rd round – in search of gold at a time when the best teams are filling their lists with less praised prospects.
Now, to choose from:
DRAFT TRACKER:Analysis of each election in the first round
2021 NFL Breeze Tracker: Second Round Dial
33. Jacksonville Jaguars – CB Tyson Campbell, Georgia
Not a ton of production in terms of rolling the ball for the Bulldogs, but you can’t learn a speed below 4.4 or a readiness to fight. It gives Jags a nice nickel package with CJ Henderson and newly signed Shaquill Griffin.
34. New York Jets – WR Elijah Moore, Mississippi
NYJ continues to invest in funds surrounding the new QB Zach Wilson. After strengthening the O-line in the 1st round of OL Alijah Vera-Tucker, GM Joe Douglas gets an explosive receiver from Ole Miss. Moore can work from the groove, shoot the nozzles and turn the jam into a result. Last year he finished with 86 catches for 1,193 yards and eight results in eight games. This choice could cast doubt on the future of current slot receiver Jamison Crowder.
35. Denver Broncos (from Atlanta Falcons) – RB Javonte Williams, North Carolina
He averaged 7.3 yards per carry in 2020 and placed the ball in the finish zone 22 times. A physical runner who also blocks and catches (25 last year), his arrival means another time split as he replaces Phillip Lindsay as Melvin Gordon’s partner in crime.
36. Miami Dolphins (from Houston Texans) – With Jevon Holland, Oregon
Holland had nine INTs during the 2018 and ’19 seasons before giving up last year. It should upgrade Miami’s shaky back line, which isn’t exactly what a solid corner group should be.
37. Philadelphia Eagles – C / G Landon Dickerson, Alabama
He is recovering nicely from a torn ACL and should be ready in week 1. Between ‘Bama’ and his time in Florida, he played all five O-line positions, but it looks like he’s likely to settle inside the NFL. It could be C’s hereditary heir Jason Kelce.
38. New England Patriots (from Cincinnati Bengals) – DT Christian Barmore, Alabama
He destroyed the state of Ohio in the CFP national championship game, showing his ability to block the racetracks and reach the fullback. A three-way jammer that should bring the necessary athletics to the New England front. The Pats gave up two fourth rounds to replace the second round with Cincy.
39. Chicago Bears (from Carolina Panthers) – OT Teven Jenkins, Oklahoma
It should be set in the right direction and become another element (along with QB Justin Fields in the first round) that helps Chicago’s bad offense to help maintain its side of the deal in Windy City. Bear fans should enjoy Jenkins ’play-to-the-echo-of-the-whistle mentality.
40. Falcons (from the Broncos) – S Richie Grant, Central Florida
Atlanta placed last against the passage of 2020, allowing 34 TD passes. Grant, who has had 10 picks in the last three seasons, has joined the new-looking protective corps who said goodbye to Keanu Neal and Damontae Kazee at the free agency, welcoming Duron Harmon and Eric Harris.
41. Detroit Lions – DT Levi Onwuzurike, Washington
He can defend the race and penetrate in falls and should be ready to bite a few knees for new coach Dan Campbell. He was an all-Pac-12 choice in 2019 before giving up last year. Detroit has now selected two line players from the conference after being in the first round with Oregon OT’s Penei Sewell.
42. Dolphins (from the New York Giants) – OT Liam Eichenberg, Notre Dame
Giant GM Dave Gettleman is trading again, adding a third round in 2022, enabling Miami to achieve a new real approach. Expect Eichenberg to guard the blind side of QB Tua Tagovailo after this week’s Ereck Flowers store telegraphed another, the 2020 Ronder Hunt.
43. Las Vegas Raiders (from San Francisco 49ers) – With Trevon Moehrig, TCU
Last year’s Jim Thorpe Award winner, Moehrig has a nice range, plays with good instincts, can cover and is ready to come and make a hit. It should nicely complement S Johnathan Abram from the first round of 2019, who is a sophisticated player.
44. Dallas Cowboys – CB Kelvin Joseph, Kentucky
And Dallas is starting to fix last year’s defense of passing to the sieve, Joseph is now paired out with second-tier 2020 Trevon Diggs. Joseph’s exceptional athleticism should serve him well as he adapts to the NFL. Joseph, who began his college career at LSU, had four INTs last year.
45. Jaguars (from Minnesota Vikings) – OT Walker Little, Stanford
Massive with 6-7 and 313 kilograms, he has all the talent in the world, but he suffered a torn ACL in 2019 and switched off last year. He designs as a successor to Jags LT Cam Robinson, who will play in the 2021 franchise. Walker should be a good long-term investment as a protector of Trevor Lawrence’s blind side.
46. Bengalis (from the Patriots) – OT Jackson Carman, Clemson
Cincinnati, with 6-5 and 317 pounds, didn’t wait long to upgrade Joe Burrow’s QB protection, after opting for WR Ja’Marr Chase instead of left-handed accessories on Thursday. Carman protected Lawrence from the left for Clemson and could get a chance to do the same for Burrow, whose rookie season ended prematurely with a knee injury. If not, Carman could be a long-term right-handed striker or even a guard.
47. Los Angeles Chargers – CB Asante Samuel Jr., Florida
Another son of the former NFL star, Samuel Jr., is more willing to fight than Dad used to be. It can also generate traffic and help the secondary Bolts after the defeats of Rayshawn Jenkins and Casey Hayward. Samuel had three picks in eight games for Seminoles in 2020, when he was an all-ACC pick.
48. 49ers (by Raiders) – G Aaron Banks, Notre Dame
Another choice of all ACCs, 6-5, 325 kilograms should help facilitate the Niners’ game on the field, which is really crucial for their attack. This O-line gets a nice boost this spring after being signed by veteran C Alex Mack as well.
49. Arizona Cardinals – WR Rondale Moore, Purdue
Moore fired an unofficial 4.29 40 on his professional day, announcing a 42½-inch vertical jump. He posted 114 catches and 14 TDs as a freshman in 2018 … but injuries, including a knee tendon, have kept him off the field quite a bit since then. Small (5-7, 181), but very powerful, it could be a dangerous weapon – which it can also produce on jet propulsion or terrain – between WR veterans DeAndre Hopkins and AJ Green.
50. Giants (from Dolphin) – OLB / DE Azeez Ojulari, Georgia
He led the SEC with 8½ bags in 2020 and was so respected that as a freshman he was appointed team captain. It can process the edge in odd or even fronts. The Giants had no five-bag performance from any of their top players in 2020.
51. Washington Football Team – LT Samuel Cosmi, Texas
The All-Big-12 performer weighs 6-6 and 314 pounds and should immediately plug into the left WFT kit. Cosmi may not have elite physical skills, but he is resilient and can also play the right approach. The football team continues to build a nice list even if they have to reach the quarterback of the future in the future.
52. Brown (from Bear to Panther) – LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, Notre Dame
Cleveland trades (and hands over the third round as part of its second round with Carolina) to end JOK’s free fall. Weighing 6-1, 221 pounds, Owusu-Koramoah compares to Darius Leonard of Colt and also delivers thunderous hits. It can defend in space and cover large sectors of the terrain for Browns ’defense that continues to add pedals.
