My Top 150 Big Board has plenty of talent still left on the board, including three first round graded players.
Here’s my second-round predictive mock draft of how I believe things could go down tonight starting at 7:00 p.m. EST.
2021 Second Round Mock Draft
Table of Contents
33. Jacksonville Jaguars: TCU S Trevon Moehrig
Moehrig was my first round pick to the Jaguars in my original mock draft, so I’ll stick with in Round 2.
34. New York Jets: UNC RB Javonte Williams
The Jets don’t have any viable running back options on the roster right now, so adding Williams at the top of Round 2 makes a lot of sense.

35. Atlanta Falcons: Georgia CB Tyson Campbell
Isaiah Oliver and Kendall Sheffield have been disappointing for Atlanta, which nabs A.J. Terrell’s running mate in the exciting and highly athletic Campbell.
36. Miami Dolphins: Alabama C Landon Dickerson
The Dolphins need a center and love big, high-character offensive linemen. This feels inevitable.
37. Philadelphia Eagles: Florida State CB Asante Samuel Jr.
The Eagles are void of talent at cornerback outside of Darius Slay, so adding the pro-ready Samuel to the mix early in the second round of the draft feels like an obvious move.
38. Cincinnati Bengals: Notre Dame OT Liam Eichenberg
The Bengals nab one of my top tackles in the class in Eichenberg, who brings his impressive technique and dogged tenacity to the rebuild in Cincinnati.
39. Carolina Panthers: Oklahoma State OT Teven Jenkins
I loved Teven Jenkins tape, and his fall finally stops in Carolina. He should start right away at left tackle for the Panthers.

40. Denver Broncos: Washington DT Levi Onwuzurike
Denver should appreciate Onwuzurike’s untapped potential and look to pair him with their improving and scrappy interior defensive line.
41. Detroit Lions: LSU WR Terrace Marshall
The Lions wide receiver situation is laughable, but they need to think long-term with their next move at the position. Marshall might not be a finished product, but his combination of size, speed, length and ball skills doesn’t come around in the second round often.
42. New York Giants: Georgia EDGE Azeez Ojulari
Speed and bend (tilt, really) is Ojulari’s game, and he’s good at it too…unless injuries hold him back. The Giants desperately need someone with his explosiveness to energize their dismal pass rush.
43. San Francisco 49ers: Ole Miss WR Elijah Moore
The 49ers add another weapon for Trey Lance, as Elijah Moore joins Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle in San Francisco. There’s no real weakness to Moore’s game other than his lack of size, and he plays bigger than any small receiver in the class.

44. Dallas Cowboys: Alabama DT Christian Barmore
The Cowboys have a crying need at defensive tackle, and I doubt Jerry Jones is scared off by the coachability concerns with Barmore.
45. Jacksonville Jaguars: Texas OT Sam Cosmi
I love Cosmi’s physicality, athleticism and grip strength on tape, but he got by in the Big 12 without needing to use elite technique. That’ll need to change for Cosmi to reach his potential in the NFL, starting with his footwork in pass protection.
46. New England Patriots: Purdue WR Rondale Moore
Belichick gets his Tom Brady replacement and his Julian Edelman replacement with back-to-back picks in the first two rounds of the draft.
47. Los Angeles Chargers: Notre Dame SS Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah
The Chargers add another fun piece to their talented defense, getting the versatile Owusu-Koramoah, who will immediately help that dismal pass coverage in Los Angeles.
48. Las Vegas Raiders: Oregon S/CB Jevon Holland
The Raiders need more help in the second, and Holland can range between free safety and the slot.
49. Arizona Cardinals: UCF CB Aaron Robinson
Robinson has some limitations in man coverage, but his energy and physicality should be a welcome addition to a cornerback room in flux in Arizona.
50. Miami Dolphins: Washington CB Elijah Molden
Molden doesn’t check the measurables or athletic testing box, but he’s a good football player who will give the Dolphins the all-around skill set they need in the slot.
51. Washington Football Team: UNC WR Dyami Brown
Washington gets an outside vertical threat in Brown to pair with Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel.
52. Chicago Bears: Clemson OT Jackson Carman
The Bears need to find a right tackle, so they reach for Carman, who will make the transition to the right side after spending his college career on the left.
53. Tennessee Titans: Michigan OT Jalen Mayfield
Mayfield may remind Titans GM Jon Robinson of Jack Conklin with his physical style of play, but the Michigan tackle isn’t quite as technical as the ex-Titan.

54. Indianapolis Colts: North Dakota State OT Dillon Radunz
Radunz physical play temperament slots in nicely next to Quenton Nelson, but the FCS product needs some seasoning before he’s ready for live bullets.
55. Pittsburgh Steelers: Penn State TE Pat Freiermuth
The Steelers desperately need cornerback and offensive line help, but I think a run on both positions will occur before No. 55. They’ll settle for their next version of Heath Miller in Freiermuth, who is pretty ordinary as a receiver, but well-rounded and reliable.
56. Seattle Seahawks: Stanford CB Paulson Adebo
Seattle desperately needs cornerback help, and Adebo should fit their size preferences perfectly. If Adebo can find some consistency in his game, his ceiling is among the highest in the class.
57. Los Angeles Rams: LSU LB Jabril Cox
The Rams don’t value linebackers as much as other teams, but maybe they should. Cox has some questions against the run, but he can play in space and cover, which is what Los Angeles needs on the second level.
58. Kansas City Chiefs: USC WR Amon-Ra St. Brown
The Chiefs couldn’t get JuJu Smith-Schuster this offseason, so they land another big slot receiver from USC in the polished St. Brown.
59. Cleveland Browns: Louisiana Tech DT Milton Williams
The Browns need defensive tackle help and bet on the upside of Williams, one of the most athletic defensive tackles we’ve ever seen.
60. New Orleans Saints: Kentucky CB Kelvin Joseph
Joseph comes with some character concerns, but the Saints can’t pass up his athleticism and ball skills in the second round.
61. Buffalo Bills: Syracuse CB Ifeatu Melifonwu
The Bills need to add another cornerback opposite Tre White, and Melifonwu is terrific value if he’s still on the board at No. 61.
62. Green Bay Packers: Wake Forest EDGE Carlos Basham
The Packers keep chipping away at fortifying their defense, while Aaron Rodgers snubs them for a job hosting Jeopardy.
63. Kansas City Chiefs: Texas EDGE Joseph Ossai
Ossai’s upside is through the roof thanks to eye-popping explosiveness and a relentless motor, both of which the Chiefs’ defense could use on passing downs.

64. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Oklahoma C Creed Humphrey
I think we could see the Bucs trade up for a falling Humphrey or another offensive lineman in the second round, as they really don’t need all of their 2021 draft picks. Humphrey needs to improve his pass protection posture, but his character, work ethic, physicality and football IQ will project as a future starter in Tampa Bay.
Bucs Third Round Draft Pick No. 96: Tennessee OG Trey Smith
Even if the Bucs take Humphrey in Round 2, Smith could be on their radar to draft in Round 3. Will his battles with blood clots in his legs deter teams from drafting him early on day 2? Smith is a mauling presence on the interior, firing off the ball like every snap could be his last. He fits what the Bucs are looking for on and off the field.
