Round 1 of the 2021 NFL Draft was a blast! Let’s do it again tonight!

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.

Georgia CB Tyson Campbell NFL Draft

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.

Washington DT Levi Onwuzurike

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.

Alabama DT Christian Barmore

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.

DIllon Radunz NFL Draft

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.

Oklahoma C Creed Humphrey NFL Draft

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.

no way Licht is taking 2 OL on day 2

Reply to  The Freeman

He’s done it before, taking Ali Marpet and Donovan Smith in the 2nd round in 2015. With the relative lack of holes on this team, it’s not a crazy idea. A lot, I think, depends on how the team really does Aaron Stinnie. If they doubt him to the extent PR does, then doubling down on IOL makes sense given that two current starters there are headed for free agency next offseason, and we already have two very highly paid OL on the team plus a recent first round pick. I think other priority positions could be CB, RB if… Read more »

I like the picks unless there is similar rated DL out there. Why not go with two well rated OL. Consider the cap hits of Cappa and Jensen next season.

Unless Onwuzurike falls, there won’t be a DL for us to take in round 2. Some guys we could like in R3, but I doubt it.

I agree. Sure, I would love to see us acquire Onwuzurike but I’m not really expecting that to happen. I would be just as happy to see us get the two offensive linemen Ledyard has given us. I am looking for us to exercises the luxury of filling current depth needs and also provide some potential starters down the road. OL, DL, LB, DB support as well as kick or punt returners should all be considerd on days two and three. Let’s see how smart we can be this year. We Buccaneer fans certainly haven’t seen anything like this draft… Read more »

Good picks, they could all stick. I think the Bucs could trade up with the Rams ahead of the Chiefs if needed for that OL depth stud or if someone else falls. I like BPA in the third, again using late picks to move up some if needed to get a quality CB / LB/ OL/ DT /RB.

Will Brady want to break in a new center on the last year of his contract? PR keeps looking to replace Jensen because of his salary. Bucs can always redo his deal, and for the 2022 season whatever they’re paying him might not be unreasonable. Nice depth, but I’d rather have a more impactful player.

Not a single QB taken in rounds 2 or 3? I find that incredibly unlikely, like 0% chance that’s what happens.

Though I did not mention QB in a previous post here I would not be shocked if we did take one in this draft. I would certainly hope if we did that, then the guy would have realistic potential to become a starter rather than just become another career backup.

I really wouldn’t mind a trade-up into the first half of the second round. There are a bunch of really good players still available but I feel there is a drop off after around 50. Peronal targets would be Owusu-Koramoah, Dickerson, Jenkins, Campbell, Meinerz, Melifonwu and Levi. Would be pretty stoked about any of those guys.
