The NFL Draft is just three weeks away, and the wheeling and dealing has already reached a fever pitch. The San Francisco 49ers made big moves to get a quarterback, and the New York Jets seem to have clarified their draft priorities with a trade of their own.
It is the season of the mock draft, and here is ours.
Top 10 NFL Draft Picks
1. Jacksonville Jaguars – Trevor Lawrence, Clemson (QB)
Don’t listen to the noise. Trevor Lawrence has been the top pick in this draft for more than two years now.
2. New York Jets – Zach Wilson, BYU (QB)
Sam Darnold has been dealt to the Carolina Panthers, and the Jets replace him with the signal-caller from BYU, Zach Wilson.
3. San Francisco 49ers – Mac Jones, Alabama (QB)
This is where things get interesting. Maybe the Mac Jones chatter is a smoke screen, though no one can jump ahead of the 49ers and take either Justin Fields or Trey Lance, so there is no reason for a head-fake here. So it’s Jones, but with a possible surprise.
4. Atlanta Falcons – Kyle Pitts, Florida (TE)
The Falcons have revealed that they would like to trade this pick, so stay tuned. It could become a quarterback to a yet-to-be-named team. But if the Falcons keep the pick, they will add the most impressive offensive weapon in the draft, Florida tight end Kyle Pitts.
5. Cincinnati Bengals – Penei Sewell, Oregon (OT)
Last year, the Bengals got their franchise quarterback in Joe Burrow. And since he ended the season injured, this year they will get the best player in this draft charged with keeping quarterbacks healthy, Oregon tackle Penei Sewell.
6. Miami Dolphins – Ja’Marr Chase, LSU (WR)
By trading out of the top three, the Dolphins signaled that they are ready to roll with Tua Tagovailoa in 2021. He gets the best wide receiver in the draft, Ja’Marr Chase.
7. Detroit Lions – Justin Fields, Ohio State (QB)
The Lions did just trade for Jared Goff, but that was more for the draft picks the Rams sent to take on Goff’s contract. The Lions can get out of that contract in 2022, and at that point, Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields will take the reins.
8. Carolina Panthers – Rashawn Slater, Northwestern (OT)
Maybe the Panthers go with a wide receiver, but they do have Robby Anderson and D.J. Moore, which makes offensive tackle more likely. Rashawn Slater from Northwestern is the second-best tackle in the draft.
9. Denver Broncos – Trey Lance, North Dakota State (QB)
The Broncos could trade up for a different quarterback, but chances are they will be pleased to get North Dakota State’s Trey Lance without having to trade away any assets.
10. Dallas Cowboys – Kwity Paye, Michigan (Edge)
Our first defensive selection of the draft goes to Dallas, where Michigan’s Kwity Paye will pair very nicely with DeMarcus Lawrence and give Dallas a top pass rush.
