Post Super Bowl Mock Draft

Post Super Bowl Mock Draft

With the season ending with that absolute schlacking Tampa Bay handed Kansas City, DRAFT SEASON HAS OFFICIALLY BEGUN! With the draft order officially set, what better way to kick it off than with a mock draft? Enough talking, let’s get into it.

1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Trevor Lawrence, QB

You’ve seen this pick since the end of last season, he’s the consensus number one pick. Next.

2. New York Jets: Zach Wilson, QB

Sam Darnold is good, he’s a starter in this league. I just think purely as a prospect, Zach Wilson has the higher ceiling. With a new coaching staff coming in, they’re most likely going to want a fresh start.

3. Miami Dolphins: Penei Sewell, OT

The Dolphins need a wide receiver, I get it, but it is hard to pass up on Sewell here. At 20 years old with a sky high ceiling, this is your franchise left tackle for the next decade.

4. Atlanta Falcons: Justin Fields, QB

Matt Ryan is still a solid starter, but he’s at the back end of his career. When is the next time the Falcons will be picking inside the top 5 with an A prospect like Fields still on the board? Take him and sit him a year or two.

5. Cincinnati Bengals: Kyle Pitts, TE

Hear me out here. I know that Cincinnati offensive line is atrocious, but this is a deep tackle class. With a weapon like Pitts sitting there, who is more than just a TE, you take him here. He’s a unreal talent that can fill that gap AJ Green will be leaving.

6. Philadelphia Eagles: Ja’Marr Chase, WR

Easy pick here, Chase’s 2019 tape is incredible. The Eagles sprint to the podium to hand in this pick.

7. Detroit Lions: DeVonta Smith, WR

The Heisman Trophy winner heads to Detroit to pair up with Jared Goff. With Kenny Golladay AND Marvin Jones potentially leaving in free agency, the Lions are almost forced to go receiver here.

8. Carolina Panthers: Trey Lance, QB

News came out this week that the Panthers offered Teddy Bridgewater to the Lions for Matthew Stafford. They seem to regret that signing and I don’t quite blame them. Bridgewater is solid, but even without McCaffrey for most of the year, that offense severely underperformed. Take Lance, who has an extremely high ceiling, and let him take you to the next level.

9. Denver Broncos: Caleb Farley, CB

Caleb Farley has the highest ceiling of all the corners in this class. He has good size, length and speed and he’s only been playing the position for a year. His press man style of play will fit perfectly into Vic Fangio’s defense.

10. Dallas Cowboys: Patrick Surtain II, CB

You lose Byron Jones last offseason, and Chidobie Awuzie is likely to be gone this offseason. That leaves Trevon Diggs, who showed flashes of potential his rookie season, and Anthony Brown. Surtain can step in and be your number one corner and create a good tandem with Diggs.

11. New York Giants: Jaylen Waddle, WR

The Giants need someone on the outside who can create separation, and allow Darius Slayton to play more in the slot, his ideal role. Before Waddle’s injury, he was my WR1 due to his speed, ability to separate and his RAC ability.

12. San Francisco 49ers: Kwitty Paye, Edge

John Lynch has showed that he is all about building up that front seven. Paye would be a perfect fit in that defense on the other side of Nick Bosa.

13. Los Angeles Chargers: Rashawn Slater, OT

Turn on Slater’s game against Ohio State in 2019 and watch him take Chase Young out of the game. He is a great pass and run blocker and will keep Justin Herbert clean and upright.

14. Minnesota Vikings: Christian Darrisaw, OT

The Vikings have made an effort to build their offensive line up through the draft the last few years. Why stop now? Darrisaw is a nasty finisher and a great run blocker. Perfect fit for that run-heavy Vikings offense.

15. New England Patriots: Micah Parsons, LB

With the top three receivers and Kyle Pitts off the board, Pats go best player available here. That best player happens to be arguably the best defensive player in the class. Parsons has off the field concerns, but his versatility makes him hard to pass up here.

16. Arizona Cardinals: Jaycee Horn, CB

The Cardinals were already thin at cornerback, and now Patrick Peterson is on his way out of town. With Matthew Stafford now in your division, you have to take steps to build that secondary up. Horn is built to be a number one corner, a good combination of size, speed, length and physicality.

17. Las Vegas Raiders: Gregory Rousseau, Edge

I feel like Rousseau is going to shoot up boards after his pro day, he’s a freaky athlete. As of right now though, he’s an extremely raw prospect. Linebacker has been mocked to the Raiders often, but getting a pass rush will help these linebackers out. Get the high ceiling player here.

18. Miami Dolphins: Rashod Bateman, WR

As of now you have Devante Parker and Preston William, two big targets who don’t separate well. Bateman, for whatever reason has fallen under the radar. He is a excellent receiver who separates well and has great acceleration after the catch.

19. Washington Football Team: Mac Jones, QB

Jones reminds me a lot of current Washington QB Alex Smith, who they’ve had a lot of success with. He moves well, throws a very accurate ball and is a great locker room guy. Washington loves drafting Alabama players, so they grab their franchise QB here.

20. Chicago Bears: Jalen Mayfield, OT

The Bears have a lot of needs, but they are bad at tackle. Mayfield is a physical, athletic player who can come in and start immediately and help push that run game Matt Nagy desperately wants to instill.

21. Indianapolis Colts: Liam Eichenberg, OT

Anthony Castonzo= Out. Liam Eichenberg= In. Plug and play left tackle, makes too much sense.

22. Tennessee Titans: Azeez Ojulari, Edge

The Titans desperately need help with their pass rush. Harold Landry is solid, but they need someone opposite of him. Ojulari is a fluid athlete who is an excellent competitor and has a very high football IQ. Things I feel like Mike Vrabel will appreciate.

23. New York Jets: Samuel Cosmi, OT

Like the Bears, the Jets need help everywhere. You got your franchise left tackle last year in Meckhi Becton, get your right tackle this year. Cosmi played left tackle at Texas, but he projects better on the right side due to his lack of upper body strength and his average athleticism, still great value here.

24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Zaven Collins, LB

Collins feels like a Steelers player. Big, tough and versatile. He has the ability to rush the passer, play off the ball and drop into coverage. Great player to play opposite of a pure pass rusher like TJ Watt.

25. Jacksonville Jaguars: Teven Jenkins, OT

A player that has shot up boards lately, his tape against Joseph Ossai is textbook. Jenkins is a developmental player, he is far from a perfect prospect. He is an average athlete and has adequate length, nothing special. What he lacks in tangibles, he makes up with intangibles. He is an unrelenting competitor, and has high football IQ. He also has excellent upper body strength. He can come in and start for Jacksonville, and in a year or two, be their best lineman.

26. Cleveland Browns: Jeremiah Owusu-Koromoah, LB

Koromoah steps in immediately and plays your Will linebacker. He also has the versatility to rush the passer, which helps since Oliver Vernon is probably gone from Cleveland. He also has shown he can cover slot receivers, which helps Cleveland’s sometime shaky secondary.

27. Baltimore Ravens: Alijah Vera-Tucker, OG

The Ravens miss Marshal Yanda, their interior line looked very weak this year. Vera-Tucker is a fluid, smooth athlete who can get out into space and move people around, a perfect fit into this run-heavy offense.

28. New Orleans Saints: Nick Bolton, LB

Demario Davis is getting older. Kwon Alexander is becoming increasingly injury prone. Alex Anzalone is best suited as a rotation guy. Bolton is a great athlete, plays good in space and is an absolute thumper. He leaves something to be desired in pass coverage, but has the athleticism to develop that part of his game. Plug and play Mike linebacker.

29. Green Bay Packers: Asante Samuel Jr., CB

After Kevin King costing the Packers an NFC Title and a Super Bowl trip, he is out. That leaves an opening at CB opposite of Jaire Alexander. With the Packers running more man coverage than anyone else in the league, you take Asante Samuel Jr., the best man cover corner left on the board.

30. Buffalo Bills: Wyatt Davis, OG

The Bills run game was virtually non-existent, and that was due in large part to the awful guard play throughout the season. Davis could go a long way towards improving that problem and helping the Bills become a two dimensional offense.

31. Kansas City Chiefs: Dillon Radunz, OT

The Chiefs need tackle help. I know they’re starting tackles will hurt for the Super Bowl, but Mitchell Schwarz is aging and Eric Fisher is serviceable at best. They need to upgrade. Radunz is a well-rounded, athletic tackle. The only thing working against him is he played at an FCS school. If he played at an FBS school for that, he’s a top 15 pick in this draft.

32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Joseph Ossai, Edge

Rounding out this mock draft, I have the Buccaneers going Joseph Ossai. With Shaq Barrett potentially on his way out, you need to fill the void he’s going to leave. Ossai has a very high motor, good bend and is an explosive athlete. He has the versatility to stand up, put his hand off the dirt, and play off the ball. Great fit into this defense.

Thanks for making it to the end! I’ll have my next mock draft out after pro days begin later next month and we get to see who’s getting buzz. Make sure to check out my scouting reports!
