2021 NFL Draft Position Rankings


Reach/Value Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the mock draft (by our DRAFTSIM model) versus where the player is listed on the Drafttek Big Board.
Example: A player who is listed at #50 on the Big Board and is selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who is selected at #50 will be a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.

Andre Cisco is the definition of a true single hi free safety! His closing ability is ridiculous and is always looking to intercept the football or try and force a fumble. A tremendous value pick for Trent Balk!e

Jalen Mayfield NFL Draft photo
Atlanta has needed to work on the trenches, and Jaylen Mayfield is an interesting addition to the offensive line. He has played RT at Michigan, but he was announced as Guard in the draft. Kaleb McGary seems to have the RT spot locked up, but there is a yawning void in the interior. Presuming that last year's 3rd-round pick, Matt Hennessy, seizes the C position, Atlanta has assembled a very interesting, athletic OL to protect Matt Ryan.

Texas
EDGE
Reach/Value:

Joseph Ossai NFL Draft photo
Joseph Ossai's play tempo reminds me of another Texas linebacker, Derrick Johnson. At 6-4 and a hair under 250 pounds, Ossai is versatile. The Longhorns play him primarily as an edge rusher, but he could see some off-ball opportunities for the Bengals. He's shown the ability to not only get after the QB, but he has a knack for zone coverage drops, notching two interceptions and three passes defended in his career. Ossai redlined several Pro-Day drills, with a 41.5" vertical, a 131.5" broad jump, and a 4.65 forty.

With the 70th in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Carolina Panthers select Brady Christensen, OT, BYU!

Christensen is an athletic OT prospect from BYU with great length and strength in his arms. He drops a heavy anchor, but probably needs to bulk up to maintain against NFL edge rushers. He's on the old side.

Aaron Robinson NFL Draft photo
The Giants landed an intriguing rotation piece for their defensive backfield with Central Florida's Aaron Robinson. He's tall and rangy, yet plays a ton in the slot. He also hits and tackles well enough to possibly play a Safety role at some point. That of course leads to the question of where he actually fits, but he has time to work his way into a rotation role as they Giants aren't desperate for corners. Grade: B-

Alim McNeill NFL Draft photo
Detroit goes big man in back-to-back selections here at #72 as they select North Carolina State DT, Alim McNeill. In many corners, McNeill was shooting up NFL draft boards, and according to Pro Football Focus, McNeill was being mocked in the second round in the Pick #40 range. His Pro Day really helped him by running a 4.94 dash and bench pressing 225 pounds in 27 reps.

Watching film on McNeill, he controls the line of scrimmage and rarely gets pushed around. It looks like Detroit, based on their last selection, is really hammering home the desire to stop the run and/or create more penetration with the McNeill and Onwuzurike picks.

Benjamin St-Juste NFL Draft photo
I was impressed with the play of St. Juste. The more I researched, the more I liked him. St. Juste had to learn a new playbook in 3 weeks for the 2019 season, and he excelled, putting up 10 PBU --#3 in the Big Ten. Smart is what smart does, and this Academic All Big Ten, grad transfer humbly talks about it here. After earning his bachelor's, Benjamin went from cold Michigan to even colder Minnesota, where he earned his Master's in sports management. I've heard Darrelle Revis skills in a Richard Sherman body.

Osa Odighizuwa NFL Draft photo
The Cowboys watched some defensive linemen go ahead of them like Alim McNeill and Milton Williams that I would have liked more than Odihizuwa. Still, length is something this team needs up front. He can also play multiple positions on the front, as I think he could be the four-tech end because of his arm length, pad level, and powerful hands. He could also rotate at the three-tech tackle position with Trysten Hill and Neville Gallimore. He's definitely more ready to be disruptive against the run at this point, but the guy plays with a high-motor that makes me believe he's not done developing.

Paulson Adebo NFL Draft photo
Paulson Adebo is another player who opted out in 2020. He probably would have contended for RD1 pick. He will now man the position vacated by Janoris Jenkins, now a Titan. The 3-year starter at Stanford, Adebo exploded on the scene his freshman year when he led the nation with 24 pass breakups, and his popularity in the Bay Area only gained traction. He has great size and speed; he ran a 6.69 three-cone that would put him in the 94th percentile for CBs, ran a 4.45 forty-yard dash, a 36.5-inch vertical, and a 121-inch broad jump.

Josh Palmer NFL Draft photo
The first offensive skill weapon added with QB Justin Herbert in place is big-bodied Tennessee wideout Josh Palmer. Palmer ran a 4.51 forty and put up 21 yards a catch. However, he stayed under the radar in discussion of top WR prospects. Some analysts see him as a poor man's Mohammad Sanu, others feel like his traits and skillset will transcend his college performance. After an outstanding Senior Bowl performance, it's easy to see where Tom Telesco falls in the debate.

Chazz Surratt NFL Draft photo
Eric Wilson has been playing well but Anthony Barr is gone after this year. Troy Dye had a decent rookie season, but the Vikings needed another LB. Chazz Surratt is strong, fast and quick. He's a very physically-gifted player and could develop well.

Buffalo
EDGE
Reach/Value:

Malcolm Koonce NFL Draft photo
The Raiders seek to address the pass rush by selecting a prospect out of Buffalo. Sound familiar? Koonce is certainly less-heralded that Khalil Mack (#225 on our Big Board), but he has 14 sacks in 19 games and joins Yannick Ngakoue as the guys the Raiders will really want to pin their ears back and go get a QB. While it's not hard to argue for a pass rusher here, Ronnie Perkins and, well, several other prospects seem to be better value here. A big reach for the MAC product. He's good at forcing fumbles, though.

Grade: C-
80 Las Vegas
Divine Deablo

Reach/Value:

Divine Deablo NFL Draft photo
After investing heavily in Cory Littleton and Nick Kwiatkoski in the 2020 free agency, the Raiders' linebacker play remained unimpressive. Both are back as is Nicholas Morrow, on a one year deal. With Tanner Muse clearly a big reach from last draft class unlikely to pan out, there's been a lot of speculation about the Raiders drafting some help. While Deablo played safety at Virginia Tech, Alec Ingold identified him as a linebacker. As a rookie, expect him to be the #4 backer and a special teamer while the team figures out if he can play a bigger role in the future. This is another reach - especially with Jabril Cox available. This isn't the pick I would have made, but there's more "boom" than I see with Koonce.

Grade: B-
81 Miami
Hunter Long
Boston College
TE
Reach/Value:
-24
Height:

Hunter Long NFL Draft photo
Tight End was not the biggest need for the Dolphins, but I do see the logic in selecting Boston College's Hunter Long. Mike Gesicki is the undoubted starter at the position with Durham Smythe, and Adam Shaheen, providing the greater blocking prowess in limited roles. Long provides a decent combination of receiving talent, and blocking ability, which could allow Miami to work with more Single-TE sets.

Long wasn't overly productive before 2020, but hauled in 57 catches last year. I like the prospect, but the grade slips because the selection doesn't fill a need. There are also some great talents left on the board. Unless a trade is made, there's a big gap now before the Fins pick again.

Chauncey Golston NFL Draft photo
Golston is another long-armed, powerful defensive lineman that can play inside or out. Like Osa Odighizuwa, who Dallas selected at #75, his best position will likely be the interior-shaded end position in Dan Quinn's scheme. Golston is actually very similar to the type of player and person that Tyrone Crawford was for a long time in Dallas. He gives great effort on all three downs, although his sack production is more about that than physical gifts. He will make this team better at stopping the run, which can't be understated after the Cowboys were one of three teams to give up five yards or more per carry.

Amari Rodgers NFL Draft photo
Maybe with the new rules, Amari Rodgers can wear #12 and Packers fans will be happy their jerseys are still relevant. All kidding aside, Rodgers is going to be a great addition to LaFleur's offense as a slot weapon. The RAS score of 5.37 doesn't scream Packers' prospect, but Rodgers was top three in slot catches, slot yards, screen catches, and screen yards in 2020. He broke 17 tackles on 77 catches last year, so he could be the YAC threat Green Bay's passing game has been missing. Rodgers could also get some schemed up touches from the backfield or on jet motion.

Could this draft be going better for the Vikings? They just picked the best OG in the draft in RD 3. Anyone is an upgrade over Dakota Dozier, but Wyatt Davis is a bonafide stud.

The Steelers needed a center badly in this draft and they finally get one. Green is a good athlete who's only played center for a couple of games. At his Pro Day he showed an explosive lower body with a 36" vert and a 9'11" Broad Jump. He plays through the whistle with toughness. A B1G first team election who started 33 games, he's an interesting player to develop. He should be able to push incumbent starter Finney for a starting role by mid-season if not sooner.

Trey Sermon NFL Draft photo
After losing Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon to Free Agncy the 49ers replenish their backfield with Trey Sermon. Sermon is a great fit in Shanahan's offense as he has burst, power and excels on outside runs. Sermon is also a sound pass blocker and is underrated as a receiver out of the backfield. Expect Sermon to immediately enter the rotation with Mostert and Jeff Wilson, with the ultimate goal of replacing Mostert as the lead back.

Mike Zimmer must have been having heart palpitations with all the offensive players the Vikings have been taking. Patrick Jones II has good pass rush moves, he's a smart pass rusher.

The Browns just added one of the fastest players in this draft to add to an offense that was really good in 2020. He can take the top off of defenses with ease, and when teams use him on a reverse motion, someone better be accounting for him. He's not the most polished route-runner, and I'm not sure I'd want him running a lot of routes over the middle. He's got a slight frame, but when the ball is in his hands, hold your breath, Dawg Pound. This might be one of the most electrifying players Cleveland has had since Joshua Cribbs.

The Titans do still have defensive needs and LB is surely one of them. At worst Monty Rice is a rotational LB for the Titans here in his rookie year. He can play outside and rush the passer in the 3-4. I would have liked to see the Titans address their lack of pass catching weapons, but Rice should hopefully help energize their lackluster defense from this previous year.

Spencer K. Brown NFL Draft photo
I honestly thought I'd hear Iffy, or Molden here, but Beane is serious about giving Dane Jackson a chance to start opposite Tre White. Spencer K Brown The top FCS Tackle is now a Bill, and he loves pancakes. His tremendous arm strength (500 lbs Bench Press) is helpful in re-arranging the defensive line in front of you while getting to the second level. I'm putting him in a competition for RT. Brown has the ballerina feet (a converted tight end, like former Bills OT Jason Peters), excellent mobility and great speed (4.84 forty leads all OTs) to get to the perimeter on pulls and screens. His anchor is great which, when paired with his arm strength, makes you an immovable object, even when confronted with an irresistible force. Brown likely offers a succession plan for Daryl Williams. This will be a no-nonsense OL with some depth for Bobby Johnson to teach. The Bills normally bring 16 OL to camp, and they only had 11 after signing 2 turnstiles and a Guard in Free Agency. I'll get over this "Iffy" pick.

Big Ben Cleveland lands in Baltimore. The Ravens add to their interior options with the Georgia man who impressed throughout the draft process. Kevin Zeitler was signed to start at one of the Guard positions and Cleveland could push Bradley Bozeman for playing time at the other.

Cleveland has power, strength, good instincts, and a very impressive beard. Another solid pick by Eric DeCosta who is hitting most of the needs with players of value. The knock on the grade here is that the Ravens are still without a Right Tackle.

This is certainly the biggest reach in the first two days, and I'm not sure what Dallas was thinking here. We have him ranked at #362 on our draft board, and the Cowboys were convinced that he was worthy of the 99th selection. Wright measured just over six feet, four inches and weighs 183 pounds at his Pro Day. That's slender to say the least. Obviously, someone in the draft room felt they could redshirt this guy and mold his length and athleticism into a future NFL player. To say patience will be the key may be the understatement of the year. I will certainly file this one away and admit I was wrong on the grade if he does workout.

Okay, still no Right Tackle for the Ravens. Corner wouldn't appear to be the biggest need for the team, but no surprise that one has been added in this draft. Brandon Stephens may not be a well-known name, but John Harbaugh will be betting on the upside.

The former RB is a good size/speed prospect who flashed at SMU in 2020. The Ravens may look to convert him to Safety but, for now, he'll fight for snaps behind Marcus Peters and Marlon Humphrey.

I honestly felt Baron Browning had a chance to be the first Ohio State linebacker taken of the bunch. In the end, Pete Werner was selected ahead of Browning, but I really like what he brings to the table for the Broncos. He's versatile, having played multiple linebacker positions for the Buckeyes, and will also instantly help this team on special teams. One of the things that stands out most about Browning is his physical nature at the point of attack. He attacks lead blockers and plays through traffic in pursuit while finishing with a thud at the ball carrier. Considering this was a position Denver needed to get better, he could push to earn a starting role inside while being able to backup both positions if he comes up short.
