AZ’s first and final mocks (3 for 1 special)


Recommended Posts

Usually I post 20 or so mocks. This year I am posting just 3, all at once, outlining mocks for trade up, trade down and stand pat scenarios.


1 JAX QB Trevor Lawrence

2 NYJ QB Zach Wilson

3 SF QB Mac Jones 

4 ATL TE Kyle Pitts

5 CIN OT Penei Sewell

6 MIA WR Ja’Marr Chase

7 NE QB Trey Lance (trade with DET)

8 CAR WR Jaylen Waddle

9 WFT QB Justin Fields (trade with DEN)

10 DAL CB Patrick Surtain Jr

11 NYG WR DeVonta Smith

12 PHI CB Jaycee Horn

13 LAC OT Rashawn Slater 

14 MIN OT Christian Darrisaw 

15 DET LB Micah Parsons (DET trade with NE)

16 ARZ CB Greg Newsome II

17 OAK EDGE Jaylen Phillips 

18 MIA LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah 

19 DEN OT Teven Jenkins 


20 CHI trades 1-20 to BUF for 1-30 and 2-61


20 BUF RB Najee Harris

BUF is right on the cusp, and a difference making RB could put that offense over the top. Harris to me is Stephen Jackson. BUF needs to get ahead of PIT but has concerns the next 3 teams (all AFC teams) won’t want to deal with them to their own detriment. 


21 IND OG Alijah Vera-Tucker

22 TEN EDGE Azeez Ojulari 

23 NYJ WR Rashod Bateman 

24 PIT RB Travis Etienne 

25 JAX EDGE Kwity Paye

26 CLE LB Jamin Davis

27 BAL OT Samuel Cosmi

28 NO LB Zaven Collins

29 GB CB Caleb Farley 


1-30 WR Elijah Moore Ole Miss

Whoever the Bears QB is gonna be, they need weapons. Moore is an absolute playmaker who runs good routes, has elite speed and who catches everything. 

NFL.com player comp: Antonio Brown


2-52 QB Kellen Mond TAMU

Pace and Nagy get their QB here. Mond is the epitome of a boom-or-bust prospect. His lows are bad but he’s got desirable measurables, a strong arm, is experienced and improved every year against SEC competition and is a plus runner with red zone value (22 rush TDs). 

NFL.com player comp: Colin Kaepernick 


2-61 OT Spencer Brown Northern Iowa

Brown is massive at 6’8” with long arms. He has good feet and looks to finish his blocks. He’ll have an adjustment coming from Northern Iowa but there’s obvious starter there on either side of the line. 

NFL.com player comp: Jared Veldheer


3-83 CB Paulson Adebo Stanford

With prototypical size for an outside corner and natural ball skills (8 INT and 30 PD in 22 games), Adebo is a potential starter opposite Jaylon Johnson who needs some needed skill sharpening. Coming off a 2020 opt out. 

NFL.com player comp: Sean Murphy-Bunting


5-164 CB Kari Vincent Jr. LSU

Slot corner prospect with top tier athleticism. Vincent has versatility to his game having played some safety in college. He’s more athlete than refined prospect which is what has him on the board here. Giant upside. 

NFL.com player comp: Donte Jackson


6-204 DT TQ Graham Texas

Graham has good size and 35” arms that make him a good physical fit at 5T as a run stuffing reserve with some growth potential with technique development. 

NFL.com player comp: None listed


6-208 WR Josh Imatorbhebhe Illinois

Beyond Robinson and Mooney (and Moore in round 1 here) the cupboard is pretty bare. Imatorbhebhe has absurd hops (46.5” pro day vertical 👀) and ideal size as a developmental boundary WR. 

NFL.com player comp: Donovan Peoples-Jones


6-221 LB Justin Hilliard Ohio State

High motor but undersized LB, Hilliard is a special teams standout. This is a pick looking to fill a role in the immediate, however Hilliard is a former top recruit with some potential defensive upside as well. 

NFL.com player comp: None listed 


6-228 WR Ben Showronek Notre Dame 

Showronek at 6’3” 220 lb profiles here for a transition to move TE. He was an effective blocker from the slot at ND and excels on jump balls. He probably gets a year as a game day inactive or on the PS with Graham still on the squad. 

NFL.com player comp: None listed 






1 JAX QB Trevor Lawrence

2 NYJ QB Zach Wilson

3 SF QB Mac Jones 

4 ATL TE Kyle Pitts

5 CIN OT Penei Sewell

6 MIA WR Ja’Marr Chase

7 DET WR Jaylen Waddle

8 NE QB Trey Lance (trade with CAR)


9 CHI trades 1-20, 2-52 and 2022 2nd for 1-9 and 5-152 (1400 (approx)-1379 on the Hill value chart in favor of DEN)


1-9 QB Justin Fields Ohio State 

Biggest upside of any QB in this draft. Mobility. Arm strength. Leadership. Big swing? Yes, but Fields’ upside is as high as any player in this draft. My clear cut QB2 would be a home run pick even at a high cost. 

NFL.com player comp: Dak Prescott (but faster)


3-83 WR Tylan Wallace Oklahoma State

Wallace is a NFL caliber route runner who’s a feisty competitor and who has shown time and again to rise to big moments. He’s not a burner but is an asset down the field despite average size with elite timing and compete on jump balls. Wallace should compete for reps right away in 3WR sets and provide instant value. I see him as one of the most solid, safest WRs in this class outside the top 3. 

NFL.com player comp: Nate Washington


5-152 OT Jaylon Moore Western Michigan

Moore is a tackle prospect with adequate length who shows good footwork and heavy hands but needs some technique refinement with his balance against power and to probably get a bit stronger. 2021 swing tackle with starter upside. 

NFL.com player comp: None listed


5-164 CB Benjamin St. Juste, Minnesota 

Looks the part of a boundary corner at 6’0” 202 lb, St. Juste is strong in run support. Route recognition needs development but the upside is there at this point in the draft. Skill set should transition well to ST, and possibly to safety as well. 

NFL.com player comp: Tre Flowers


6-204 WR Cornell Powell Clemson

Former top recruit who bided his time for reps at Clemson behind a train of NFL talent, Powell burst onto the scene in 2020. He shows good hands and smooth routes but average explosion. Powell is an angry run blocker for the position. Ideal depth WR skill set with upside who’s team first approach and aggressiveness should serve well on coverage teams as well. 

NFL.com player comp: James Jones


6-208 EDGE William Bradley-King 

High-motor pass rush prospect with a decent variety of rush moves but just average closing burst. He’s slightly undersized but presents upside as depth. 

NFL.com player comp: Oshane Ximines


6-221 OT Alaric Jackson Iowa 

42 starts at LT for Iowa gets you NFL attention. Jackson flashed the ability to develop into an eventual starter at the Senior Bowl. A worthwhile add this late. 

NFL.com player comp: None listed


7-228 WR Ben Showronek 

See above. Drafting as a developmental move TE. 






1-20 OT Teven Jenkins OK State

My favorite OT prospect in this class outside Sewell and Slater. Jenkins is the right mix of nasty and talent that our OL needs, and comes with the versatility to play on either side of the line. 

NFL.com player comp: Joe Thuney 


2-52 CB Kelvin Joseph, Kentucky

Joseph possesses boundary corner size and swagger, and is effective in run support. He showed well against elite SEC competition this year and has good ball skills. He’s a little light experience-wise but I like the upside and skill set fit with what we need. 

NFL.com player comp: Maurice Canady


3-83 QB Davis Mills Stanford

I’m not buying the hype of Mills as a 1st round pick. He’s a QB with the physical tools you look for in a pocket passer but none of the success you’d want to have seen with them, coupled with limited experience and a noteworthy knee injury history. Mills offers nothing as a runner either. Now, all of that said, there’s obvious developmental upside here. We see time and again these types of players go in round 3 and 4 so that’s where I have us taking Mills here with a “We’ll never admit it but we missed out on the guy(s) we really wanted at QB” move. 

NFL.com player comp: Jarrett Stidham 


5-164 WR Josh Palmer Tennessee

Prototype size and SEC experience, Palmer is a good route runner and downfield target. His production was underwhelming though at least some of that can be attributed to atrocious QB play. 

NFL.com player comp: None listed


6-204 S Richard LeCounte Georgia

Ran out of steam here. We need safety depth and LeCounte is a highly experienced one. 


6-208 EDGE Jonathon Cooper Ohio State

See above. Give me former top prospects playing at major programs at this stage to see if the light comes on. Minimal risk. 


6-221 RB Jake Funk Maryland 

Picked because of the bad *** name. RB isn’t even a need. 


6-228 OT Coy Cronk Iowa

Picked because of the bad *** name 2.0. He was TDN’s 328th ranked prospect and might struggle for a camp invite.
