The NFL Draft is less than two weeks away as draft boards are being finalized. Here's a look at our first three-round NFL mock draft, as of April 20, 2021.
Lawrence might already be getting fitted for his new uniform by the Jaguars. The Clemson star could be the best quarterback prospect since Andrew Luck, with every physical quality scouts like and the track record to back up the pure talent. He will also get time to develop under new Jags head coach Urban Meyer, and the team has the cap room to add weapons for him this offseason. Lawrence finished 2020 completing more than 69% of his passes for 3,153 yards and 24 touchdowns in 10 games, and he also contributed eight rushing scores.
With the trade of Sam Darnold, Wilson looks all but certain to be heading to New York. Wilson is coming off a brilliant season in which he completed 73.5% of his passes for 3,692 yards and 33 touchdowns. He also shows above-average mobility.
Whether San Francisco selects Jones, Justin Fields, or Trey Lance, it's clear they will select a quarterback after mortgaging the future to trade up. Jones did a lot to help his stock in 2020 and the Senior Bowl, and his great accuracy (77.4% in 2020) could make the transition easier.
The Falcons will likely see plenty of offers for the No. 4 overall pick, but it remains to be seen if they'll make a trade. Keeping the pick and taking a generational tight talent in Pitts has to be enticing. Injury issues limited Pitts to eight games in 2020, but he still had 43 catches for 770 yards and 12 touchdowns. His incredible 4.44 second 40 time at Pro Day means that he won't last long.
The offensive line continues to be an issue for Cincinnati, even after signing tackle Riley Reiff this offseason. Sewell would be the No. 1 prospect in the draft in many years, but the rush for quarterbacks could cause him to drop.
Miami has a solid No. 1 wideout in DeVante Parker, but Chase could put the receiving attack on another level. Chase opted out of the 2020 season, but he was an incredible prospect before then. Chase had an amazing 84 catches for 1,780 yards and 20 touchdowns in 2019 opposite Vikings star Justin Jefferson.
Waddle missed much of 2020 with an ankle injury but was able to return for the National Championship. If healthy, he has the potential to be the steal of the draft, and Detroit has a major need after inexplicably letting top wideout Kenny Golladay walk.
Carolina already has a lot of talent to surround Sam Darnold, but a No. 3 wideout should be on their list after losing Curtis Samuel. The reigning Heisman Trophy winner, Smith, has significantly helped his stock in the past season. Smith had an insane 117 catches for 1,856 yards and 24 total touchdowns in 2020.
With Drew Lock's struggles over his first two seasons, Denver might go back to the well for a quarterback. Lance is a great prospect but could use some development time, coming from FCS power North Dakota State.
Dallas desperately needs help in every area of the defense, but their leaky secondary was particularly an issue last season. Surtain is an elite prospect, with the pedigree to boot after his father's 11-year NFL career that included three Pro Bowls.
The Giants offensive line made nice strides last season, but they could still use more help. Slater had an outstanding career at tackle for the Wildcats but could also kick inside to guard if needed.
Philly has seen major turnover in the secondary in recent seasons and would love another lockdown corner to join Darius Slay. Horn, the son of former Saints wideout Joe Horn, opted out of the 2020 season after putting enough on tape to garner early first-round consideration. He helped his stock with a blazing 4.37 second 40 time at Pro Day.
The offensive line was a big issue for the Chargers for much of 2020 and should be prioritized as the team tries to protect Justin Herbert, Vera-Tucker could help at either guard or tackle immediately for the team.
The loss of tackle Riley Reiff exacerbates what was already a major weakness for Minnesota. Darrisaw developed into a strong first-round prospect in 2020 who could fill in.
It's difficult to see Fields dropping this far with all the quarterback-hungry teams around the league, but if it does happen, the Pats are a perfect landing spot with Fields getting a chance to learn behind Cam Newton. The versatile Fields was highly productive over the last two seasons, finishing last year with 22 touchdown passes and five rushing scores over eight games.
The loss of franchise player Patrick Peterson will hurt Arizona, and replacement Malcolm Butler has been inconsistent in recent seasons with the Titans. Farley opted out of the 2020 season as a potential first-round pick who had four interceptions in his final college season.
The Raiders struggled at linebacker last year despite the addition of Cory Littleton. Owusu-Koramoah would fill a major need at linebacker and was a major playmaker for the second straight season at Notre Dame, with 62 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 12 games.
Miami has an immediate hole to fill at linebacker. Parsons opted out of 2020 after recording 109 tackles and five sacks for the Nittany Lions in 2019.
The offensive line is a major need for Washington, even after making some strides last season. Jenkins has emerged as a first-round prospect after a strong career at Oklahoma State and would be able to step in immediately.
The loss of Kyle Fuller will be felt in Chicago, but Newsome could lessen the blow. Newsome had some injury issues in college but is a great press corner prospect who could fill a long-term need for the Bears.
The loss of Justin Houston has created a need in Indy. Paye could step in now, with 8.5 sacks in 16 games over the last two years.
Tennessee is hopeful the additions of Denico Autry and Bud Dupree help their pass rush, but they could still look for more help. Phillips is a transfer from UCLA who had a breakout 2020 season with eight sacks in 10 games.
The Jets have a building block with Quinnen Williams but could use an edge rusher. Ojulari is a quick edge pass rusher who had a terrific 2020, recording 9.5 sacks in 10 games.
The Steelers let James Conner walk this offseason, and don't have a clear starting running back entering 2021. Harris has a very high ceiling, finishing last season with 1,891 yards from scrimmage and 30 touchdowns.
Safety is a major need for the Jags going into the draft. Moehrig could be a long-term fit, showing great productivity for the Horned Frogs over the last two seasons with 109 tackles and six interceptions.
Cleveland helped their defensive line by signing Jadeveon Clowney, but they could still use another capable linebacker for the defense. Davis has great size at 6-foot-4 and recorded 104 tackles last season.
The Ravens signed Sammy Watkins, but they need more options given his propensity for injuries. After opting out of the 2020 season, Bateman ran a 4.39 40-yard dash and would be another deep threat for Lamar Jackson.
The Saints have an immediate need at linebacker, and also have to look at the long term with Demario Davis in his early 30's. Collins was a breakout playmaker for Tulsa at linebacker in 2020 with 54 tackles and four interceptions in eight games.
The Green Bay failed to address wideout last year, but Moore's talent could be too good to pass on.. Moore lacks size at 5-foot-9, but he ran a 4.34 second 40 time and had 86 catches, 1,193 yards, and eight touchdowns in only eight games last year.
With aging edge rushers, Buffalo could use a youngster to build around. Oweh had 38 tackles, including 6.5 tackles for loss, in seven games during 2020.
The Chiefs lost Sammy Watkins this offseason and struck out on their attempt to sign JuJu Smith-Schuster. Toney is in the same ilk as a speedy playmaker who could help in a variety of ways, as the former Florida star had a breakout year with 984 yards receiving in 11 games and ran a 4.41 40 time at Pro Day.
The Bucs were able to bring back Ndamukong Suh, but Barmore looks like a potential replacement after 2021. Barmore has a chance to be a dominant interior player and recorded eight sacks in 11 games in 2020.
The Jags are desperately in need of some defensive line help for young star Josh Allen. Rousseau opted out of 2020 but had 15.5 sacks in 2019 for the Hurricanes.
Running back is a dire area of need for the Jets, whose best option currently is Lamical Perine. Etienne is a perfect fit as a multi-dimensional back who ran a blazing 4.4 second 40 time at Pro Day. The only big concern is his production decline last year (5.4 yards per carry) after averaging over seven yards per touch in each of his first three seasons at Clemson.
The Falcons have an immediate need at guard, where Leatherwood could fill-in in the short term before moving back to tackle. Leatherwood's stock dropped a bit during the 2020 season, but he remains a strong prospect.
Myles Gaskin did a nice job for Miami last season, but the team could find more upside in his year's draft. Williams averaged 7.3 yards per carry at UNC last season, and also shows capable as a receiver.
Wideout is a dire need for Philadelphia, even after drafting Jalen Reagor last season. Marshall finished 2020 with 48 catches for 731 yards and 10 touchdowns in only seven games and would be a nice complement for Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney.
Dickerson's stock has likely dropped after tearing his ACL last season, but that could make him a nice second-round value for a team like Cincinnati. The Bengals should do all they can to help Joe Burrow.
Stokes with a playmaker for the Bulldogs last season with two pick-sixes, and would add immediate depth for Carolina. Even after signing A.J. Bouye, cornerback remains a place for the Panthers to add depth.
The Broncos could look to add a right tackle here, as they've struggled in recent seasons. Eichenberg could fill in immediately and comes from a long line of successful Notre Dame linemen.
The Lions need help everywhere, including safety. Grant was a playmaker over the last three seasons at UCF, with 10 total interceptions and big tackle numbers.
The Giants could use another rotational defensive lineman, and Basham shows excellent upside in that role. They could play him at defensive tackle immediately.
The loss of Richard Sherman creates a need for more depth at corner for San Francisco. Campbell is in the first-round conversation after running a sub-4.4 40 at Pro Day and also has good size at 6-foot-2.
Dallas hasn't had a great answer at tight end since the loss of Jason Witten. Freiermuth is coming off a back injury but has interesting Red Zone potential.
Jacksonville took C.J. Henderson in the first round last year and also signed Shaquill Barrett this offseason, but their work at cornerback might not be done. The younger Samuel had a great career at Florida State, peaking last year with three picks in eight games.
The Pats have been busy this offseason, but could still use another rotational defensive lineman. Onwuzurike opted out of the 2020 season, but he's a top interior prospect who impressed at the Senior Bowl.
After losing Casey Hayward this offseason, cornerback is a major need for the Chargers. Joseph had a strong Pro Day after recording four picks in 2020.
The Raiders have an immediate need at right tackle after trading Trent Brown. Cosmi played the left side at Texas but could switch to the right side and fill in immediately.
Arizona is in the market for safety help to create a great tandem with Budda Baker. Holland might have hurt his stock after opting out of 2020 but had nine picks in his first two seasons at Oregon.
Miami is comfortable with their young tackles, but more depth would be helpful. Mayfield has so-so athleticism that could push him to late in the first day or early in the second day of the draft, though he offers decent upside.
Curtis Samuel gives Washington a gadget player, but another deep threat to join Terry McLaurin could make this a dynamic offense. Brown had back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons at North Carolina, averaging better than 20 yards per catch.
Right tackle is a big need for Chicago going into the draft, and they need all the offensive help they can get after bringing on unflashy veteran Andy Dalton to quarterback the team. Radunz could play the right side or potentially move inside to guard.
The losses of Corey Davis, Adam Humphries, and Jonnu Smith create a major need for Tennessee. Moore is just 5-foot-7 but ran an incredible 4.29 second 40 time, and would make a great complement to A.J. Brown.
The Colts center the draft with an immediate need at middle linebacker. Bolton was a playmaking machine at Mizzou, recording a total of 198 tackles over the last two seasons.
The Steelers have lost major talent on the offseason line, including left tackle Alejandro Villanueva. Carman is a solid tackle who could step in immediately.
The Seahawks signed Aldon Smith but still need more pass-rushing depth. Ossai moved from inside linebacker to the edge in college and is still a work in progress. However, he had 10.5 sacks over the last two seasons at Texas, and his potential should get his name called early in the draft.
The Rams have a major need on the interior of the offensive line, including center. Humphrey is a potential plug-and-play at center in the second round.
Baltimore has been masterful at developing edge rushers and has a need again after losing Matt Judon. Tryon opted out of the 2020 season at Washington but has the athleticism to be a nice project for the Ravens.
Cleveland needs more interior depth after cutting Sheldon Richardson. Nixon is a potential replacement, recording 5.5 sacks and 13.5 tackles for loss last season.
The Saints had a glaring weakness at wideout after Michael Thomas got injured last season. Atwell can fly, running a 4.32 40 time in his pro day to make up for his 5-foot-9 height. He had 1,272 yards receiving in 2019 before regressing to 625 yards in nine games last year.
Buffalo would welcome some help at cornerback behind Tre'Davious White. Robinson is a strong Day 2 prospect who could fit nicely either on the outside or as a slot corner.
The Packers had trouble at the tackle spots last year and could have an immediate need at right tackle. A giant 6-foot-8 tackle, Brown has plenty of experience on the right side of the line.
The Chiefs need a defensive end after losing starter Tanoh Kpassagnon this offseason. Perkins recorded 16.5 sacks in three seasons for the Sooners and should be a solid rotational player.
Mills has limited college experience and didn't put up big numbers in either of the last two seasons at Stanford, but he has elite arm talent. He's a nice fit to learn behind Tom Brady in the Bucs offense.
The Jags are in the market for another linebacker to join Myles Jack and Joe Schobert. The 6-foot-4 Cox had three picks and 6.5 tackles for loss for the Tigers last season.
The Jets continue their seemingly annual revamp of the offensive line with a need on the interior. Davis should be able to step in immediately at guard.
The Texans had almost limitless needs but lack early picks to fill them. Turner played his college ball down the street and could help the team replace J.J. Watt after recording five sacks in five games last season.
The Falcons added Mike Davis this offseason, but clearly need more running back depth. Gainwell looks like a solid third-down back, as an undersized back who had 51 catches and over 2,000 yards from scrimmage in 2019 before opting out last season.
The loss of A.J. Green means Cincinnati has a need at wideout, and Rodgers could join former college teammate Tee Higgins with the Bengals. Rodgers has plenty of athleticism as had 77 catches for 1,020 yards and seven scores in his senior season at Clemson.
Few organizations have put more emphasis on the defensive line than the Eagles, and Tufele looks like a stout run stuffer. He had 41 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 2019 before opting out last season.
Denver added Kyle Fuller this offseason but could still use another capable corner. Molden is undersized at 5-foot-10 but had a productive college career, and fits in the slot.
Detroit has needs seemingly everywhere after remaining quiet in free agency. Tuipulotu looks like a solid run stuffer, recording 23 tackles in five games last season.
Left guard is a definite need for Carolina that Meinerz might be able to fill. He impressed in the Senior Bowl after sitting out in 2020.
Washington needs a starting safety to join Landon Collins. Cisco missed last season due to a torn ACL but was considered a first-round prospect before the injury.
A pass rusher remains a major need in Dallas after losing Aldon Smith. Koonce is somewhat undersized but could be a nice rotational player after recording 13 sacks over the last two seasons at Buffalo.
Linebacker depth is a need for the Giants, and Surratt was one of the most productive linebackers in the country over the last two seasons. He had consecutive seasons with over 90 tackles, along with 12.5 sacks.
The Chargers are really lacking wide receiver depth behind Keenan Allen and Mike Williams. Eskridge is an excellent complementary prospect as a 5-foot-9 slot man who could also handle return duties.
Adding safety depth is definitely high on Minnesota's draft list. Hufanga had three productive seasons at USC and had a junior year breakout with four picks.
The Raiders are young and less productive than hoped at wideout. Collins has great upside at 6-foot-4 and is another potential deep threat to join Henry Ruggs.
The loss of center Rodney Hudson will certainly be felt by the Raiders. Myers could help there or slide to guard and play immediately.
Cornerback is one of Miami's biggest strengths, but they still need more depth. Melifonwu is a nice fit as a huge developmental press corner at 6-foot-3.
Trask had a breakout 2020 season for the Gators and was briefly mentioned as a top Heisman candidate. He could use some time to learn, and there are few better quarterbacks to learn behind than Ryan Fitzpatrick. Trask is coming off a brilliant senior season completing 68.9% of his passes for 4,283 yards and 43 touchdowns.
The Bears signed Andy Dalton this offseason, but he's unlikely to be their long-term answer at quarterback. Mond had a storied career for the Aggies but needs to develop his accuracy. He would be a welcome change for the Bears in the short term if Dalton doesn't work out.
The Zach Ertz saga continues, with the possibility that the tight end will be traded. If that does happen, Philly could be in line for a tight end. Jordan is slightly undersized but was highly productive in college, including seven touchdowns last season.
The Titans are in desperate need of cornerback help after losing Malcolm Butler, Adoree Jackson, and Desmond King. Adebo opted out of 2020 at Stanford, but could still step in immediately.
Among the Jets' many needs, cornerback is one of their biggest. St-Juste is a raw cornerback out of Canada, but his raw physical ability should be intriguing on the second day of the draft.
The loss of Bud Dupree creates a need for another rusher, and Weaver is a nice long-term fit on the defensive line. He had 14 sacks over the last two seasons at Pitt.
The Rams lost defensive line depth this offseason, where McNeill can help. He had 10 sacks in three seasons for the Wolfpack and is a nice interior fit next to Aaron Donald.
The Browns saw nice flashes from Donovan Peoples-Jones in his rookie season, but could still use another weapon. Schwartz has electric speed, running 4.26 second 40, and could help on special teams as he develops his receiving skills.
The Vikings were exposed at guard on multiple occasions last season. Banks would potentially add depth and could be a mauling run blocker.
Cleveland has an exciting, young secondary, but a developmental prospect like Rochell would be a nice fit. He has excellent athleticism, though he could need some time to adjust to the NFL.
The Packers need help at inside linebacker, and Browning is bursting with athleticism. He didn't produce big stats for the Buckeyes but could be a nice find late on the second day.
The Bills are set along the offensive line but still badly need more depth. Forsythe has extensive experience at left tackle but also started earlier in his career on the right side.
The Chiefs still don't have a clear answer at tackle after cutting both of their starters this offseason. Hudson could need time to develop, but his athleticism should entice NFL teams.
With the possibility that Tampa Bay doesn't bring back Antonio Brown, they could be looking at wideout. Wallace had over 900 yards in three consecutive seasons for the Cowboys and is an interesting deep threat.
The Pats selected Kyle Dugger in the second round last year, but could still get younger at safety. Nasirldeen missed much of last season due to a knee injury but is a big, productive safety who produced huge tackle numbers in college.
Jones is coming off back-to-back productive seasons, combining for 17.5 sacks. With the loss of Melvin Ingram, Jones could be an answer as an edge rusher.
The Saints need help on the interior of their defensive line, and Williams shows big potential. He has highly productive over the last two years with 10 sacks.
An injury-ravaged Cowboys offensive line last year showed the importance of depth, and Little could provide that. Little opted out of 2020 but has significant experience at left tackle.
A former top high school prospect, Smith's college career was disrupted by a blood clot issue. If his health checks out, he shows immense second-day upside as a mauling guard.
The Lions are in the market for more cornerback depth. McPhearson had a breakout 2020 season with four picks and could fit in the slot.
The 49ers have an excellent, young wide receiver tandem with Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk, but need more depth after losing Kendrick Bourne. St. Brown is coming off a sub-par junior season but had over 1,000 yards in 2019.
The loss of Gerald Everett creates a need at tight end for the Rams. Long was a productive receiver over the last two seasons at Boston College, including 57 catches last year.
With an old defensive line, the Ravens have reason to address that area in the draft. Wilson was a former top recruit but saw his stock drop after a poor senior year.
