It's too early to deal with whether or not the Philip Rivers idea (over, say, Cam Newton) was the right move. Or if Indy has as solid a playoff chance as was the case "on paper" prior to the start of this incredibly different and Covid-ridden debacle of a 2020 NFL season.

You see, in "normal times" putting together an early mock draft comment would be quite simplistic. Just merge some obvious "team need" areas with some secondary positions that may have an extremely talented "can't miss" prospect that jumps over the top of a team need. Yeah.....easy peasy. The year 2020 --since right around January 2nd-- has been far from normal. The NFL and collegiate season? Even less so.

With that in mind, we know the Colts' GM Chris Ballard isn't your ordinary Best Player Available honcho. Well, at least not the BPA most people believe are there when he turns in the selection card for Indianapolis. He has his staff feed him info constantly (and push for) players not on the radar of many others. More times than not, it has been to the benefit of this ballclub. For the 2021 NFL Draft, it looks to be even more unpredictable as the collegiate season isn't quite up to full speed and many would-be top prospects won't even play this year. Which will make for some seriously tough decisions come Draft Day.

Right now, Indy could still use quite a few impact players at various positions. OT, EDGE, DLT3, CB, and WR immediately come to mind. What's more, there could be players at other positions (CB, OG, S, TE) that put together some seriously good tape over the course of the next few weeks. Heretofore said collegians may not have been seen much, but with the virus-impacted collegiate season, some youngsters have had the opportunity to step up.

One player who seemed to have a RD1 pick heading his way (and still might) was Pitt's DT Jaylen Twyman. However, he opted out in the initial stoppage of fall sports at universities around the U.S. Now that play has picked back up (and he is not on the field) it means NFL personnel have to decide if he is worth a selection inside of RD1. That's going to be a tough obstacle for many like Twyman.

At this point --because it's still so early-- we'll stick with him as Indy's RD1 selection here, even though he ultimately might see his stock drop as some other EDGE stars emerge over the rest of this college football season. The Colts aren't necessarily targeting an EDGE rusher per se, but Ballard is always on the look-out for difference-makers at that position and in the trenches. With Denico Autry and Justin Houston at age 30 or older (1.5 sacks each in 2020), Indy will need to decide if they'll push towards more young and hungry players ( Backup DE Muhammad Al-Quadin is 25 and Ben Banogu is 24) if the veteran free agents are not re-signed.

Through the first two weeks of the season, the 49ers' biggest need may be a bottle of insect repellant to ward off the injury bug biting its way through their starting lineup. Bad jokes aside, it's been tough to evaluate the Niners with so many key players injured or limited. The WRs have been lacking, but that's no surprise with Deebo Samuel sidelined and Brandon Aiyuk still acclimating to the NFL. Losing Nick Bosa to a torn ACL will make the rest of the season a referendum on the pass-rushing unit, but the position that has me most concerned is CB.

The Niners didn't have an answer for DeAndre Hopkins in Week 1 when he torched them for 151 yards and a TD on 14 catches. The secondary responded well in Week 2, holding the Jets to just 179 total passing yards, but given the Jets weren't even at full strength, that's more expected than inspiring.

GM John Lynch has been hesitant to use early picks on the secondary in previous drafts, but perhaps a name from his alma mater can change that. Stanford CB Paulson Adebo would inject the San Francisco secondary with some big-time playmaking ability as he has racked up four interceptions and double-digit passes defensed in each of his two seasons as a starter for the Cardinal. For reference, the last 49ers' CBs to have at least 4 INTs in a season were Chris Culliver and Perrish Cox in 2014.

Hold on to your seats Cowboys fans, because this season looks like it is destined to sprout grey hairs and spike blood pressure. After seeing an offensive pass interference call spoil a late comeback in week one, Dallas pulled off one of the most improbable comebacks in recent memory against the Falcons.

Through the first few weeks, the one thing that has been consistent have been the struggles on defense. The truth is this pick could go in a variety of ways. It's troubling to see La'el Collins and Tyron Smith's health seem to pick right back up where it left off last year, giving us a week-by-week anxiety attack with their playing status up in the air. With cap space needed to get Dak Prescott signed long-term, as well as possible extensions for Michael Gallup, Leighton Vander Esch and even Aldon Smith, Tyron Smith's health could turn him into a cap casualty in the offseason. I'd hate to see that, but Mike McCarthy seldom needed premium offensive line play while he was in Green Bay based on his desire to get the ball out quickly to slow down pass rushes.


Another way this pick could go is toward the secondary. The Dallas safeties are much better at defending the run than they are in coverage, and they are also still looking for one or two long-term solutions at cornerback with Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis each set to be free agents.

Still, it was obvious the Cowboys were entering the season without the brand of defensive tackle that fit's their new scheme, and it's affected their ability to stop the run thus far. A two-gap scheme needs big-bodied, long-armed interior linemen, and while Dontari Poe fits that bill, guys like Antwaun Woods and Trysten Hill do not. Don't get me wrong, both those players have had flashes but Woods long-term future is not on this team and Hill could be as a situational pass-rusher. Tyler Shelvin, on the other hand, would be a terrific fit as this team's nose moving forward. At six feet, three inches and 346 pounds, I have little doubt he could be the same kind of presence in Dallas that he's been in the middle of that LSU defense.

Two weeks into the season, the Raiders find themselves 2-0 and feeling like some of the "fringe playoff team" buzz may actually come to fruition - even as the next 3 weeks of the schedule look especially daunting. As expected, this team has been fueled by a strong offense, and the defense has played just well enough in scoring situations. Still, the passing defense has given up the 4th most yards in the league - against a mediocre Teddy Bridgewater and a clearly-past-his-prime Drew Brees - while the pass rush we hoped was improved has managed just one sack, the second-lowest total in the league.

With numbers that bad, everyone is to blame, and the Raiders desperately need second year vets Clelin Ferrell and Maxx Crosby (who has, to be fair, been the one guy getting some pressure) to step up in a big way. Still, the big focus remains on DT - where production has been non-existant- and Safety - where Erik Harris looked especially lost in Week 1. Given where the Raiders hope to be drafting in Round 1 (in the 20s), it's a fitting range to draft a top prospect at the position to pair with lone defensive bright spot Jonathan Abram.

The Brady conundrum! There's a general angst among Bucs' faithful who are admiring the greener-appearing grass on the other side of the fence. We're looking at Josh Allen, Russell Wilson, and Aaron Rodgers slinging scuds all over the field, and thinking, "This should be us!!". Instead, Brady has averaged a "meh!" 228 ypg passing with 3 TDs and 3 picks. The Carolina game was closer than it should have been prior to Leonard Fournette's game-clinching run, annoying us.

A deeper analysis shows that the lack of offensive production (by Brady) was not for lack of trying. He attempted 10 passes over 20 yards, tied for 6th in the NFL; and more than Allen and Wilson, BTW. Further, Brady leads the league in dropped passes with 8. Good news comes in Week 3 as Chris Godwin rejoins the team!

The Bucs have a creampuff schedule this year. There's the Chiefs, Packers, and Rams on the slate, but the docket for the next six weeks shows DEN, LAC, CHI, GB, LVR and the NYG. Now, the Bears, Chargers, and Raiders are "pretty-good", but flawed, teams. These are games that the Bucs are expected to win. If the team does worse than 5-1 in this stretch, I will personally be disappointed.


As far as the 2021 NFL Draft is concerned, the replacement of Donovan Smith at Left Tackle is emerging as the primary need at this point, particularly if Brady will be continuing on for additional years. He's the weak link on the line, and further, he'll be a free agent following the 2021 season (as will Brady, for that matter). It's a good bet that the Bucs will select an OT in RD1, and possibly even trade up to get their man. If the team selects in the late 20's as currently expected, GM Jason Licht could also eye an OG to provide continuity should Alex Cappa (also a 2022 FA) hit the road.

In this week's mock it's Samuel Cosmi. You gotta like Cosmi's response when asked about opting out: "I'm here to play football!"

The Titans pulled off another squeaker, beating the Jaguars 33-30. It would have been nice to see them win by more, but still 2-0 is 2-0. The win and points total were especially encouraging as star WR A.J. Brown was out. It was disappointing that Brown's absence made Corey Davis the de facto number 1 WR, and he responded with 3 catches for 31 yards, 4th-best on the team, though he did reel in a TD. I would be absolutely shocked if he is not gone after this season.

The Titans have two sacks this year, one coming from the IDL and zero from the DE position. Jadeveon Clowney was a huge signing, but he's only on a one year deal and he's taking up $12 million worth of cap space. It sure seems like the Titans could look to improve their pass rush and free up a ton of cap loot by taking a DE early in the draft.


Jayson Oweh. Is an absolute freak of an athlete. He's pure, raw, untapped potential at this point. The lack of a timely Big 10 season hurts his draft stock a bit, but helps the Titans who will of course be drafting in the late 20's. However if Oweh plays as expected (by PSU fans), it may put him out of the Titans reach. Honestly, his Combine numbers alone may get him drafted too early for the Titans to have a shot, even though I doubt he runs the 4.33 forty-yard dash he says he runs. Oweh will still likely run in the 4.4 - 4.5 range, and a DE that fast is incredibly valuable. Let's hope that other teams are scared off by his rawness, and the Titans are able to take one of the most athletically-gifted DEs in years to help their pass rush, making their defense truly dominating.

No Tom Brady? No problem... so far. Josh McDaniels has done a great job to work his gameplay around the abilities of Cam Newton, and it is working very effectively. The new Patriots' quarterback has time to find open targets but also able to buy time by scrambling out of the pocket. This has resulted in the Patriots only giving up 1.5 sacks through two games this season.

The rushing attack for the Patriots however, is not as great. Cam Newton is actually the leading rusher with 26 attempts for 122 yards. The next leading rusher is Sony Michel with 17 carries for 56 yards. This can be the result of the play-calling, as the Patriots have ran a lot of designed QB, but there wasn't much hype for the running backs during the offseason, and with good reason. Neither Patriot runner with greater than 10 carries thru 2 games, Michel and Rex Burkhead, have broken a tackle thus far in 2020. Cam Newton is only on a one-year contract, but the way he is playing I would be surprised if the Patriots don't try and extend his contract and keep him under center for several more years. If he stays in New England, he (and the RBs) will need some upgrades at the offensive line.


This is where the Oklahoma product Creed Humphrey would come in. As I mentioned before, the offensive line has played well this season, but star Guard Joe Thuney and Center David Andrews are set to be free agents in 2021. Both of them could be re-signed, as they're 28 and 29, respectively, but Andrews missed all of the 2019 season with blood clots in his lungs.

Humphrey is DraftTek's 2nd-ranked interior lineman and #1 center. The 2019 second team All-American and First Team All Big-12 selection did not allow a single sack in 799 snaps. The Oklahoma product can fill in immediately and make a positive impact for New England and possibly revamp the running game. Humphrey was part of the Sooner attack that rushed for over 3,000 yards and 38 touchdowns in 2019.

A week after defeating the now Tom Brady-led Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Saints fell to a surprising Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football. The defense gave up 34 points and even though they held Josh Jacobs to a 3.3 yards-per-carry average, they struggled to stop the run down the stretch. The defense has a lot of skilled playmakers, but Demario Davis won't always be playing at this level . Alex Anzalone and Zack Baun still have time to develop but Anzalone's injury history is cause for concern so linebacker depth is a big priority for this organization. Alabama's Dylan Moses missed all of 2019 due to injury but most likely would have declared for the 2020 NFL Draft had he remained healthy. An impressive 2020 season showing he is over the knee injury will be imperative for his draft stock.

It is also time to seriously consider who the heir to Drew Brees is. Taysom Hill is perfect for the role he has now, so the Saints front office could nab the future starting quarterback in the upcoming draft. The Saints have been fortunate to have a player like Brees for as long as they have. Jameis Winston could potentially be a bridge quarterback if he is re-signed after 2020.

Two games, two wins!!

On the surface, the Cardinals are the world-beaters in the NFL right now, riding on the undersized back of quarterback Kyler Murray, who's had an impressive start to his sophomore year. He's become the first quarterback in the Super Bowl era with at least 500 passing yards and 150 rushing yards in the first two games of a season.

But at second glance, Arizona still has areas where improvement is essential, primarily in defending the pass.

The pass defense has looked inconsistent. Rookie linebacker Isaiah Simmons looked very out of sorts in his debut against the 49ers, committing a horse-collar tackle on his first play from scrimmage and being caught out of position twice for both of San Francisco's touchdowns. However, the real issue lies in the secondary.

The Cardinals start two corners that are over the age of 30, while still primarily leaning on a base Cover-1 that relies on the speed and athleticism of its defensive backs. Thirty-one-year-old Patrick Peterson showed more signs of age after he allowed a much younger and faster Terry McLaurin to rack up 125 yards and a touchdown on eight catches last week. Arizona's last line of defense desperately needs a replenishment of youth and quickness in its man system to better keep up with opposing receivers. Georgia cornerback Tyson Campbell, whose exceptional length and athleticism fit perfectly, will be a much-needed boost to the Arizona pass defense that has yet to snag an interception this season.

As for the linebacking corps, things seem much less dire. De'Vondre Campbell and Jordan Hicks look like solid anchors in the middle of the defense, but Arizona will need to be patient with Simmons. When he does come into his game, the Cardinals could have a top front seven in the league.

The Cardinals seem unbeatable through two weeks, but they still have some holes to fill in order to be a continuous threat in the long run. Short term, though, they will need all hands on deck this season to keep up with an extremely-talented NFC West that went 4-0 in Week 2.

The Steelers' longtime guard pairing of Foster and DeCastro is history. Matt Feiler won the Left Guard spot vacated by Foster and looks to be an upgrade with added mobility and nastiness. At Right Guard, DeCastro is still inactive, recovering from a training-camp knee injury. With primary backup Wisniewski on the IR after Week 1, the starting role fell to 2020 RD4 pick, Kevin Dotson. He excelled in the start against the Broncos allowing no pass pressures and ultimately received the game ball for his debut.

With Feiler an unrestricted free agent and DeCastro over 30, the team needs quality depth at Guard and Center, where Pouncey is himself 31 with a single year left under contract. The emergence of Dotson is certainly a welcome development and will reduce the priority for Guard in future CMDs. The uncertainty around the cap this coming offseason may limit the Steelers' options to keep their own this offseason. With JuJu, Connor, Villanueva, Feiler, Dupree, and Hilton all in a contract year, the team will have some hard choices to make. Draft prospects from many positions will be in play until the team gets significantly into the offseason.

Davis is a great prospect with outstanding strength, nasty attitude, and great body control for a big man. With the size to play Guard or Center, he would fill one of the potential near-term holes on the roster. The Steelers have a long, close relationship with Ohio State and should be very familiar with the prospects. Davis has rejoined the program, so the team will have some fresh tape to scout.

What's one of the quiet stories of the Jags' surprising start? The Jaguars have been getting excellent utilization from their 2020 NFL draft crop!
  • RD1 CB CJ Henderson - has moved right into the starting lineup and looks like he's been there for 5 years. He's suited up for 123 snaps. He's allowing a 53.7% completion rate into his coverage, and has already notched 1 pick with 4 PBUs
  • RD1 Edge K'Lavon Chaisson - has worked into the rotation with 64 snaps in 2 games with 1 sack through two games
  • RD2 WR Laviska Shenault - Many of the 2020 bumper crop of WRs are finding early success in the NFL. Shenault is one of those. He has 6 catches in 8 targets for 75 yards and a tuddy shows that the stage is not too big for the former Colorado Buffalo
  • RD3 DL Davon Hamilton - is off to a weak start, which is not uncommon for rookie interior defensive linemen. With 53 snaps played thus far, it's great experience.
  • UDFA RB James Robinson - the opportunistic Robinson saw an opening when Leonard Fournette was cut, and took advantage. The Illinois State alum scored a 100-yard game in Week 2 versus Tennessee (102 yards rushing and 1 TD). He's also showing skill out of the backfield with 4 catches for 46 yards.
Despite Robinson's nice start, the Jaguars will look for a halfback with more chops. We've had Travis Etienne mocked here in our preseason mocks, but the odds to draft Etienne lessen as the Rams move up in the selection order.

The Bills survived a CBS power outage and a 36-minute-long lightning delay, but held off the rally of the improving Dolphins to win, 31-28. We again saw an improving Josh Allen, who notched his second-consecutive 300-yard game, a Bills' first since 2002 Drew Bledsoe. No Bills QB has thrown for 400 yards and 4 TDs in a single game without an interception. Until now. After 2 weeks, Allen's stat line is 70% passing, 729 yards, 6 TDs, 0 INTs --putting him in rare company.

This sets up a Week-3 showdown with the 2-0 Rams next week. It'll be the Bills' DL vs a banged-up Rams' RB room. Cam Akers has separated rib cartilage, and Malcolm Brown underwent surgery Monday, so Singletary clone Darrell Henderson will get work. It'll also feature our defense vs a pressurable Jared Goff. We may have to outscore somebody again.


The Bills' WR quintet is solid. Thanks to Josh's ball distribution, each of them made a highlight-reel catch: Diggs, Brown, McKenzie (when the Bills were off the air), Beasley, and newbie Gabriel Davis.

Croom's gone, but I'm not sold on the TE room. The Fins' Mike Gesicki made me want a dominating TE who makes glue-handed grabs like this. The other need, besides LB and OT depth, is CB. Levi Wallace is an above-average corner, but good OCs like Chan Gailey can scheme it so that he's covering Gesicki or DeVante Parker, like he did Sunday. I think there's a reason Beane has Norman, Gaines, and Wallace all on a one-year leash; watch for a CB in RD1 or RD2. In the coming mock drafts, expect versatile CB/FS or CB/KRs who relish tackling, like Israel Mukuamu, Tyson Campbell, Jaycee Horn, Asante Samuel Jr., and this guy Josh Jobe.

Two games in, the Packers are looking like one of the hottest teams in the league. For all the Debbie Downers that wondered how the Packers got better after being the "worst 13-3 team of all-time," the correct answer appears to be internal improvement. Green Bay has put up a league-leading 85 points and 1,010 yards through Week 2, thanks in large part to Aaron Rodgers' return to MVP form. Rodgers has started off the season completing 67.6% of his passes for 8.2 yards/att, 6 TDs, and 0 turnovers.


One of the keys to Rodgers' success is the performance of the offensive line. The Packers entered the season with big question marks along the right side. One would've guessed that injuries to expected starters Billy Turner and Lane Taylor would've resulted in disaster. Instead, Green Bay's constantly-shuffling makeshift O-Line has allowed just one sack and 13 pressures on 77 dropbacks, earning the top pass-blocking grade in the NFL.

If you're a regular consumer of our content at DraftTek, you know that we've been consistently projecting OT to GB in RD1. However, the emergence of the O-Line could allow GM Brian Gutekunst to focus his resources elsewhere. The Packers haven't used a Day 2 pick on a WR in five years and (still) haven't drafted a WR in RD1 since Javon Walker in 2002.

WR Rondale Moore would be a really intriguing fit in Green Bay. Moore burst onto the college scene in 2018 with 114 catches for 1,258 yards and 12 TDs, while adding 213 yards on the ground with another two scores. Moore's versatility and big-play ability would be a perfect fit for Matt LaFleur and his "illusion of complexity" offensive scheme.

Something that has been glaringly obvious throughout the first two weeks of the season is the lack of playmakers on the Jets' roster. Who are those guys that we expect to step up and make a play? On defense, who are the guys that are going to get us that game-changing sack or interception? Who is going to break a big play for us on offense? It's hard to really answer any of those questions with any amount of confidence at this moment in time. Le'veon Bell is the only player on the Jets' roster with a history of making plays in the league, and he is now 3 years removed from days like that.


Yes, we have some nice young pieces. Mekhi Becton has looked very good at LT, grading out as PFFs' top Offensive Rookie, thru 2 weeks. Quinnen Williams has started off Year 2 of his career very well, and Marcus Maye, in the absence of Jamal Adams, has flashed some good play. But after that, we look devoid of talent on many areas of the roster. Joe Douglas needs to continue the overhaul of the roster and make this "bonus" pick count.

We've got WR Seth Williams of Auburn mocked to the Jets here. What do we like about Williams? How about the fact that he's actually going to suit up and play this year, unlike some of his WR 2021 draft class peers (Moore, Chase). Williams' Auburn team starts his season on 9/26 against Kentucky, followed by an early-season showdown at Georgia on 10/3.

A rookie QB who was given the starting nod less than 5 minutes before the game --his first NFL start ever, nonetheless-- outplayed the Chiefs and outshined Patrick Mahomes for three quarters of the game. Thanks to the leg of Harrison Butker, the Chiefs squeaked out an OT win. Butker (Bolt-kicker) not only tied Nick Lowery's record for the longest FG in franchise history, he also joined Greg Zuerlein (2012) as the only kickers in NFL history to make two 58-yarders in one game. Or, as CBS Sports writer Will Brinson put it, "Harrison Butker just made 169 yards' worth of game-winning field goals."

After trailing 11 points at the half, Patrick Mahomes scampered and tossed bulls-eye darts in the 4th quarter to set up the scenario for another KC comeback. In doing so, Mahomes accumulated another NFL QB record: 6 straight wins after trailing by double digits, including playoffs (The Chiefs have tallied 11 straight victories dating back to Nov. 18, last season).

Next week, the Chiefs travel to Baltimore to face the Ravens on Monday night. Mahomes and Company cannot afford another slow start. It will come back to bite us against Lamar Jackson. Most notably, KC linebackers must improve. Chiefs' LBs struggled, both in coverage and with missed tackles. Something has to be done, as this is a growing concern. Perhaps moving up the timeline for rookie Willie Gay Jr.? Add him to the starting lineup and send (ho-hum) Ben Niemann to the bench?

If you could take the best elements of traditional, winning football and mix in the best elements of modern, winning football, you'd have the perfect team. I'll stop short of saying the 2020 Ravens are perfect, but they're not too far away. The first two opponents, the Browns and the Texans, have been dismissed at a canter. There will be tougher challenges ahead, but this team looks to have mastered complementary football in the same way as Belichick's Patriots did for many years. Baltimore has a favorable schedule with games against the teams in two of the worst divisions: The NFC East and AFC South. Only games against the Chiefs, Titans, Pats, and divisional-rival Steelers should hold any fear for this team.

Wherever you look on the Ravens' roster, you have players making positive contributions. Once the running of Jackson, Ingram, and Dobbins has worn you down, they throw in Gus Edwards to finish you off. Mark Andrews has become one of the most dominant and reliable TEs in the league. The defense can pressure, cover, and create turnovers from multiple sources. If the offense ever gets stopped, they have the best kicker in the league to ensure 3 points; it's not even fair.

So, in what areas does this near-perfect juggernaut need improvement? The answer to this will revolve around contracts and depth. Ronnie Stanley will be a free agent after the season. Stanley could/should receive the franchise tag, but the Ravens would do well to add more options to the O-Line. A prospect who can play both OT and OG would make a ton of sense. Teams can never have enough D-Linemen or Defensive Backs, so they will be highly considered at the back end of RD1. The Safety positions could become a concern as the season progresses. The rest of the league will hope Baltimore don't add the luxury pick of another offensive playmaker.
