Thompson’s 2021 Mock Draft 2.0 Rounds 2 and 3

Thompson’s 2021 Mock Draft 2.0 Rounds 2 and 3

by March 30, 2021 1 comment

Yesterday, the first round of this mock was uploaded. Now, here are rounds two and three. The two rounds have nine trades between the two. Plenty of players have fallen down the draft board, and some teams will trade up to grab them.

You can find the first round here.

33. Jacksonville Jaguars – Pat Freiermuth, TE, Penn State

After taking Trevor Lawrence and Trevon Moehrig in round one, the Jaguars snag Freiermuth to kick off the second round. The tight end position is desperately needed for Jacksonville, and the Jaguars hired Tyler Bowen, who coached Freiermuth at Penn State.

For more on Freiermuth, read our scouting report on him here.

34. Green Bay Packers (via NY Jets) – Asante Samuel Jr, CB, Florida State

After trading down in the first round, the Packers get a cornerback to pair with Jaire Alexander. Green Bay has done a significant amount of studying on the cornerback class, and Brian Gutekunst was at the Florida State pro day. Don’t let the fact the Packers re-signed Kevin King make you think differently about what their draft plans are. Green Bay added an extra third-round pick and still got the player they would’ve selected at 29.

For more on Samuel, read our scouting report on him here.

35. Kansas City Chiefs (via Atlanta) – Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan

Like Green Bay, Kansas City traded down and got the player they would’ve gotten at their original spot. After releasing both of their starting tackles, Kansas City desperately needs help at those spots. Mayfield falls to the second round, and the Chiefs are quick to scoop him up and stick him at left tackle in Week 1.

For more on Mayfield, read our scouting report on him here.

36. Miami Dolphins (via Houston) – Jayson Oweh, EDGE, Penn State

Emmanuel Ogbah and who else? That explains the Dolphins’ pass-rushers. Oweh, who had an excellent pro day, will be one of the first players selected on day two if he lasts until then. Miami is a perfect landing spot for him, and he would immediately find playing time for Brian Flores and the defense that is quickly becoming one of the best in the league.

For more on Oweh, read our scouting report on him here.

37. Philadelphia Eagles – Greg Newsome II, CB, Northwestern

After missing out on Patrick Surtain and Jaycee Horn in the first round, the Eagles can’t afford to go another round without getting a cornerback. Newsome falls to the top of the second round and would pair nicely with Darius Slay for Philadelphia.

For more on Newsome, read our scouting report on him here.

38. Cincinnati Bengals – Creed Humphrey, IOL, Oklahoma

The Bengals continue to address their offensive line in the second round. After taking Penei Sewell in the first round, they double-down on the woes their offensive line has presented and select Humphrey in the second round to man the middle of their offensive line.

For more on Humphrey, read our scouting report on him here.

*** TRADE ALERT *** 

New York Jets trade QB Sam Darnold and pick 107 to Carolina for picks 39 and 113. 

39. New York Jets (via Carolina) – Azeez Ojulari, EDGE, Georgia

There is a lot to digest here. First, Sam Darnold gets traded to Carolina. The Panthers missed out on the first four quarterbacks, and Carolina opts to take a chance on Darnold, and they have enough weapons surrounding him and a solid offensive line. After getting Surtain in round one, the Panthers can get their guy and do so with Darnold.

For the Jets, they get another early second-round pick and only move down six spots in the fourth round. New York added Carl Lawson via free agency and still needs another pass-rusher. Ojulari has endured a bit of a fall, and that stops here with the Jets snagging him.

For more on Ojulari, read our scouting report on him here.

40. Denver Broncos – Christian Barmore, DL, Alabama

The first defensive lineman goes off the board at pick 40. Barmore would fit nicely in Vic Fangio’s scheme, and the Broncos need reinforcements along their defensive line. Denver lost DeMarcus Walker and Jurrell Casey, so Barmore is a nice replacement.

41. Detroit Lions – Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue

After finding a steal by taking Caleb Farley in the first round, Detroit finds another with Moore at 41. The Lions need to retool their receiving corp after Marvin Jones went to Jacksonville and Kenny Golladay found a new home in New York. Moore would provide a spark to the Detroit offense and easily be the number one option in the receiving game.

For more on Moore, read our scouting report on him here.

42. New York Giants – Landon Dickerson, IOL, Alabama

The Giants’ offensive line has gotten better. Unfortunately, there is still one weak-link to the unit. That is at the center spot. Nick Gates is currently listed as the starter, but Dickerson is similar to what New York has in Will Hernandez. Both Dickerson and Hernandez are maulers and bullies in the run game that aren’t bad in pass pro either. Dickerson is only here due to injury concerns, and the Giants are wise to snag him here.

For more on Dickerson, read our scouting report on him here.

43. San Francisco 49ers – Ifeatu Melifonwu, CB, Syracuse

Jason Verrett was retained, but the other cornerbacks weren’t. San Francisco desperately needs help at cornerback, and getting Melifonwu at 43 is a steal. He matches well with Verrett and could take over as the number one cornerback following the 2021 season if Verrett isn’t re-signed long-term.

For more on Melifonwu, read our scouting report on him here.

44. Dallas Cowboys – Kelvin Joseph, CB, Kentucky

The Cowboys have a lot of bodies at the cornerback position. They missed out on Surtain and Horn in the first round and take a chance on a developmental project with some character concerns. Where have we heard that before? Joseph could turn into a steal for the Cowboys, who have needed to address their secondary for the last two or three years.

For more on Joseph, read our scouting report on him here.

45. Jacksonville Jaguars (via Minnesota) – Alex Leatherwood, OT, Alabama

Jacksonville franchise-tagged Cam Robinson before free agency. While they didn’t get a replacement for him in the first round, they find one midway through the second round. Leatherwood has been inked as one of the players who can play both tackle and guard, and Urban Meyer would love his versatility along the offensive line that is still trying to work its kinks out.

*** TRADE ALERT *** 

Pittsburgh sends picks 55, 128, and a 2022 sixth-round pick to New England for pick 46. 

46. Pittsburgh Steelers (via New England) – Javonte Williams, RB, North Carolina

For New England, they trade down after sending picks to the Lions as part of their first-round trade-up to get Justin Fields. They fall back nine spots and add a fourth-rounder this year, as well as a sixth-rounder next year. Pittsburgh moves up to snag the last of the top three running backs available. Benny Snell and Anthony McFarland are the only two running backs on the roster, and Williams is a more complete back than both of them.

For more on Williams, read our scouting report on him here.

*** TRADE ALERT ***

Cleveland sends picks 59 and 110 to Los Angeles Chargers for pick 47. 

47. Cleveland Browns (via LA Chargers) – Kadarius Toney, WR, Florida

The Browns are all-in. After trading up for Kwity Paye in the first round, they trade up again for a do-it-all wide receiver in Toney. Even if Odell Beckham is on the team, Toney will have some role during the 2021 campaign. Cleveland has one of the most complete rosters in the league following free agency and can take chances in the draft as a result.

For more on Toney, read our scouting report on him here.

48. Las Vegas Raiders – Nick Bolton, LB, Missouri

The Raiders took Teven Jenkins in round one. Now, they take another typical Raider pick with Bolton. Las Vegas added Nick Kwiatkoski and Cory Littleton during the 2020 free agency period and now add Bolton as the thumper in the middle of the defense to help fix their run defense.

For more on Bolton, read our scouting report on him here.

49. Arizona Cardinals – Baron Browning, LB, Ohio State

The Cardinals watched as Haason Reddick left to go to Carolina. To replace him, they find Browning in the middle of the second round. He has a similar skillset to Reddick and can play in a variety of different ways. Jordan Hicks, Isaiah Simmons, and Browning at the second level of the defense is a fantastic trio.

For more on Browning, read our scouting report on him here.

50. Miami Dolphins – Levi Onwuzurike, DL, Washington

The Dolphins are in a position to go with the best player available after seeing Williams go to Pittsburgh a few picks ahead of them. In this case, they take a defensive lineman to add depth to an already stacked front seven.

*** TRADE ALERT ***

Kansas City sends picks 63 and 94 to Washington for pick 51. 

51. Kansas City Chiefs (via Washington) – Elijah Moore, WR, Ole Miss

After trading down from their first-round selection, the Chiefs have added capital to jump 12 spots in the second round to snag another speedy receiver to the fold. Moore, Tyreek Hill, and Mecole Hardman might just about be unstoppable to defend against. For Washington, they drop down and add another third-round choice to the fold to pick more players.

For more on Moore, read our scouting report on him here.

52. Chicago Bears – Aaron Robinson, CB, UCF

The release of Kyle Fuller leaves a massive hole at the slot cornerback spot in Chicago. The boundary cornerbacks are set with Jaylon Johnson and the newly-signed Desmond Trufant for the year, but the slot cornerback spot is a mess. Robinson is one of the best tackling cornerbacks in the class and would form a nice trio of starting cornerbacks for the Bears.

For more on Robinson, read our scouting report on him here.

53. Tennessee Titans – Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia

Malcolm Butler? Gone. Adoree Jackson? Gone. Janoris Jenkins and Kevin Johnson were brought in, but how much does that really help out the secondary? Campbell slips to Tennessee, who gladly pounces on the opportunity to pair Campbell with last year’s second-round choice, Kristian Fulton.

For more on Campbell, read our scouting report on him here.

54. Indianapolis Colts – Ronnie Perkins, EDGE, Oklahoma

Perkins is a fan favorite on Draft Twitter. He is a raw player that still is one of the better edge prospects in the class. Ben Banogu, Kemoko Turay, and Tyquan Lewis aren’t getting it done in the sack category, so adding another young pass-rusher to the rotation is much-needed.

For more on Perkins, read our scouting report on him here.

55. New England Patriots (via Pittsburgh) – Amari Rodgers, WR, Clemson

After trading down, the Patriots once again add to their receiving core. Rodgers is a versatile piece, similar to both Rondale Moore and Toney that were selected earlier. New England is surrounding Fields with talent and now has Nelson Agholor, Kendrick Bourne, Hunter Henry, Jonnu Smith, Rodgers, and for now, Julian Edelman.

For more on Rodgers, read our scouting report on him here.

*** TRADE ALERT *** 

Denver sends picks 71, 114, and a 2022 seventh-round pick to Seattle for pick 56.

56. Denver Broncos (via Seattle) – Joseph Ossai, EDGE, Texas

Seattle has three picks in the draft. The Seahawks will be trading down a bunch during the draft. In Denver’s case, they add another player to their pass-rush rotation that has taken a significant fall. The Broncos stop Ossai’s fall with the 56th pick and now feel more comfortable for when the time comes that Von Miller departs.

57. Los Angeles Rams – Quinn Meinerz, IOL, Wisconsin-Whitewater

The landing spot for the D3 all-star is Los Angeles. Meinerz put on a show at the Senior Bowl and has now secured himself as a day-two selection. The Rams have done a ton of research on Meinerz and have had multiple zoom interviews with him. He would immediately start in the middle of the offensive line Week 1 over Brian Allen.

For more on Meinerz, read our scouting report on him here.

58. Baltimore Ravens – Joe Tryon, EDGE, Washington

The Ravens groan at the sight of Denver taking Ossai two picks before them. In need of an edge-rusher, they take a developmental project, who they hope can play sooner than later. Baltimore has done a great job of developing pass-rushers over the last few years and will need to do so again with Tryon.

*** TRADE ALERT *** 

Tampa Bay sends picks 64 and 137 to Los Angeles Chargers for pick 59. 

59. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (via Cleveland thru LA Chargers) – Daviyon Nixon, DL, Iowa

Tampa Bay selected a pass-rusher to replace Jason Pierre-Paul in the first round and now trades up for a defensive lineman to replace Ndamukong Suh. Nixon had an excellent 2020 campaign that resulted in him having some first-round talk in the middle of the season. The Buccaneers continue to bolster their front seven.

60. New Orleans Saints – Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama

Moses has taken a bit of a fall because of his 2020 season. New Orleans needs a linebacker to replace Kwon Alexander and find one with Moses. He would have been taken in the first round of the 2020 draft had he declared, but his 2020 campaign was a mixed bag.

For more on Moses, read our scouting report on him here.

*** TRADE ALERT *** 

Jacksonville sends picks 65 and 145 to Buffalo for pick 61. 

61. Jacksonville Jaguars (via Buffalo) – Milton Williams, DL, Louisiana Tech

Jacksonville invested a lot in the defensive line during the offseason. In response to an electric pro day, Williams has skyrocketed up draft boards. He is a complete player that can play on the interior, as well as on the edge. The Jaguars pounce on the opportunity to snag an athletic freak to pair with Josh Allen.

62. Green Bay Packers – Jamin Davis, LB, Kentucky

If you’ve watched The Cheeseheads podcast on our YouTube channel, you’ll know exactly how I feel about the Packers linebackers. Davis could help solve those problems. After missing out on Zaven Collins in round one, Davis falls right to the Packers, who don’t let an uber-athletic linebacker with great coverage ability get past them.

For more on Davis, read our scouting report on him here.

63. Washington Football Team (via Kansas City) – Brady Christensen, OT, BYU

Geron Christian and Saahdiq Charles are likely competing for the starting left tackle spot in 2021. With Christensen falling down the draft board, Washington adds him to the fold to battle for that spot. Christensen was one of the best tackles in all of college football in 2020, and Washington picks him as part of their best player available approach.

64. Los Angeles Chargers (via Tampa Bay) – Richie Grant, S, UCF

The Chargers need a new safety. The Nasir Adderley experience hasn’t worked out, and Rayshawn Jenkins is now on the Jaguars. Alohi Gilman could be the starting safety beside Derwin James, but Los Angeles would be wise to add a safety to the fold. Grant is arguably the best safety in the draft class, and pairing him with James is a nasty combo on the backend of the defense.

For more on Grant, read our scouting report on him here.

Round 3

65. Buffalo Bills (via Jacksonville) – Jabril Cox, LB, LSU

Buffalo trades down and picks an extra fifth-round selection to get another linebacker to add to the rotation. Cox paired with Tremaine Edmunds, Matt Milano, and A.J. Klein gives the Bills one of the deepest linebacker rooms in the league.

66. New York Jets – Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami

The Jets add another weapon for Zach Wilson. Corey Davis, Denzel Mims, Jamison Crowder, Keelan Cole, Travis Etienne, and now Jordan are the weapons for Wilson. New York has now surrounded their franchise quarterback with talent. The Jets round out their first two days of the draft by taking Wilson, Eric Stokes, Etienne, Ojulari, and Jordan.

For more on Jordan, read our scouting report on him here.

67. Houston Texans – Chatarius Atwell, WR, Louisville

The Texans have added a lot of players in the last few weeks. They add another receiver to the mix with the Atwell, a true speedster. Houston appears to be trying to mold their receiving core after Kansas City’s.

For more on Atwell, read our scouting report on him here.

68. Atlanta Falcons – Carlos Basham Jr. EDGE, Wake Forest

Atlanta has seemingly been looking to add to their pass-rush for five years now. After getting offensive weapons in Kyle Pitts and Najee Harris to solidify the offense, the Falcons now turn to the defensive side of the ball. Boogie Basham could go much higher than this and will now team up with Dante Fowler in Atlanta.

69. Cincinnati Bengals – Wyatt Davis, IOL, Ohio State

Yes, you are reading this right. Three picks, three offensive linemen for Cincinnati. Sewell was the first-round selection, Humphrey was taken earlier in the second round, and now Davis makes one of the league’s worst units into one with a ton of upside. Now the offensive line could read Sewell-Davis-Humphrey-Quinton SpainJonah Williams in Week 1. That is a lot better than what they have currently.

For more on Davis, read our scouting report on him here.

70. Philadelphia Eagles – Chazz Surratt, LB, North Carolina

After getting two steals in the first two rounds, Philadelphia gets back on track and takes a linebacker to start over one of T.J. Edwards, Alex Singleton, or Davion Taylor. Surratt is a versatile piece that could be selected higher than this. The Eagles continue to build up their roster with the most picks in the draft.

*** TRADE ALERT *** 

Las Vegas sends picks 79 and 82 to Seattle for pick 71 and a 2022 fifth-round pick. 

71. Las Vegas Raiders (via Denver thru Seattle) – James Hudson, OT, Cincinnati

After trading from the 56th pick to the 71st pick, Seattle once again trades down to 79. In the process, they gain another third-round selection because they are willing to give up a 2022 fifth-round selection. Las Vegas trades up to snag another offensive line piece in Hudson, who is flying up draft boards.

72. Detroit Lions – Elijah Molden, CB, Washington

The Detroit secondary was one of the worst last year. Now, it may be one of the most underrated in the league. Detroit took Caleb Farley in round one to pair with Jeffrey Okudah and Amani Oruwariye on the boundary, and now they get their slot cornerback in Molden. Their safeties aren’t bad either. Detroit is building their secondary up, and for good reason.

For more on Molden, read our scouting report on him here.

73. Carolina Panthers – Cameron McGrone, LB, Michigan

Carolina added Denzel Perryman and Haason Reddick to small deals during the last few weeks. Adding another linebacker to the fold to soften the loss of Luke Kuechly. With the run on linebackers ongoing, Carolina can’t sit much longer on taking a linebacker.

74. Washington Football Team (via San Francisco) – Dyami Brown, WR, North Carolina

Washington comes away with the first receiver taken in the third round. Brown is a favorite of many on Draft Twitter and gives Washington another dynamic receiver after adding Curtis Samuel via free agency. Brown will pair with Samuel and Terry McLaurin to form a great trio of young, explosive receivers for Washington.

For more on Brown, read our scouting report on him here.

75. Dallas Cowboys – Payton Turner, EDGE, Houston

Dallas, like Atlanta, has seemingly been looking for pass-rush help forever. Turner had an excellent week at the Senior Bowl and has skyrocketed up draft boards, and has found himself in the third round. He would pair nicely with Demarcus Lawrence.

76. New York Giants – D’Wayne Eskridge, WR, Western Michigan

The Giants could use a pass-rusher but see the receivers falling down the board and snag a slot receiver to replace Golden Tate. Eskridge is a fast player that can outrun defenses in an instant. He would also provide an exciting return-man as well. Eskridge, paired with Kenny Golladay, Sterling Shephard, and Darius Slayton, is an excellent receiving core. If Daniel Jones can’t make it work with that, New York needs to move on.

For more on Eskridge, read our scouting report on him here.

77. Los Angeles Chargers – Quincy Roche, EDGE, Miami

Los Angeles traded down twice in the second round and snagged Grant. Continuing to add to their defense, they find their Melvin Ingram replacement by taking Roche. He is one of the three pass-rushers from Miami that will likely go in the first two days of the draft. Pairing Joey Bosa with Roche is an excellent decision by Tom Telesco.

For more on Roche, read our scouting report on him here.

78. Minnesota Vikings – Jevon Holland, S, Oregon

The Vikings recently signed Xavier Woods to a one-year contract. With the safeties dropping down the board, Minnesota takes a shot and takes Holland in hopes that he and Harrison Smith, who could still be traded, make a formidable safety tandem.

For more on Holland, read our scouting report on him here.

*** TRADE ALERT ***

Los Angeles Chargers send picks 97 and 159 to Seattle for pick 79. 

79. Los Angeles Chargers (via Arizona thru Las Vegas, Seattle) – Paulson Adebo, CB, Stanford

After trading down twice in the second round, the Chargers use their added capital to jump up 18 spots in the third round to add Adebo. He is an excellent fit in Brandon Staley’s scheme and would find playing time early with the Chargers releasing Casey Hayward earlier in the offseason.

80. Las Vegas Raiders – Tommy Togiai, DL, Ohio State

The Raiders roster is solid, but there isn’t a position you point to besides running back and tight end that they are great at. The defensive line was already heavily addressed in free agency, with the additions of Solomon Thomas and Quinton Jefferson, and continue to build in the trenches by selecting Togiai with this pick.

81. Miami Dolphins – Michael Carter, RB, North Carolina

After missing out on Williams with Pittsburgh trading up in front of them in the second round, Miami gets his teammate. Carter will immediately line up as the starter and form a backfield committee with Malcolm Brown, Myles Gaskin, and Salvon Ahmed in Miami.

For more on Carter, read our scouting report on him here.

82. Seattle Seahawks (via Washington thru Las Vegas) – Josh Myers, IOL, Ohio State

If you look at Seattle’s roster more, there are holes everywhere. With Russell Wilson getting upset with the front office, maybe its time to finally address the offensive line after completely disregarding it. He would likely play guard or even move to center for the Seahawks.

83. Chicago Bears – Kyle Trask, QB, Florida

Ryan Pace is trying to save his job. If the trade for Deshaun Watson doesn’t work out, fans will be calling for a quarterback via the draft. With the quarterbacks going before their first-round pick, fans keep clamoring for someone, literally anyone at the quarterback position, and Pace ends up with Trask, who many have comped to Nick Foles. Sorry Bears fans.

For more on Trask, read our scouting report on him here.

84. Philadelphia Eagles (via Indianapolis) – Trill Williams, DB, Syracuse

Philadelphia has had a solid draft so far. They continue to build up the defense by selecting a versatile piece that can play cornerback or safety. Williams was part of a great secondary for Syracuse and may be a viable replacement for what the Eagles had in Jalen Mills.

85. Minnesota Vikings (via Tennessee) – Janarius Robinson, EDGE, Florida State

Rumors have already started that Danielle Hunter wants out. Mike Zimmer wants to continue to rebuild the defense and does so by adding a freaky pass-rusher.

86. Green Bay Packers (via NY Jets) – Spencer Brown, OT, Northern Iowa

With their first of two third-round picks, the Packers find their new right tackle. Brown is a great player that rose through the ranks at the Senior Bowl, and Green Bay can’t wait any longer to take a tackle with Pittsburgh and the Rams right behind them.

87. Pittsburgh Steelers – Shaun Wade, CB, Ohio State

Pittsburgh lost Mike Hilton in free agency. Wade took an enormous fall down the draft board after he would’ve been a first-round pick in the 2020 draft. The Steelers see the opportunity to get a great slot player and take a chance on him. Pittsburgh comes away with Liam Eichenberg, Williams, and Wade in the first two days.

88. Los Angeles Rams – Jackson Carman, OT, Clemson

The Rams need to prepare for life after Andrew Whitworth. Carman is worthy of this pick and would provide some depth right from the start while he develops into a potential starting left tackle following Whitworth’s retirement.

89. Cleveland Browns – Marlon Tuipulotu, DL, USC

Cleveland goes the route of best player available. Sheldon Richardson hasn’t produced like he was supposed to, and adding Malik Jackson isn’t enough for the Browns to be content with their defensive line. Tuipolotu is the pick as a result.

90. Minnesota Vikings (via Baltimore) – Nico Collins, WR, Michigan

After Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen, the Minnesota receiving core is lacking. Collins is unlike any other player on the roster and would immediately provide a redzone threat on jump balls.

91. Indianapolis Colts (via New Orleans thru Cleveland) – Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, USC

One of my favorite players in the class falls to the third round due to the receiver class and teams needing other players. Pairing St. Brown with his former college teammate, Michael Pittman, is an excellent idea, and Chris Ballard is more than happy to make it happen.

For more on St. Brown, read our scouting report on him here.

92. Green Bay Packers – Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State

The run on receivers continues. Green Bay finally takes a receiver after ignoring the position last year, which was met with a lot of hate. Matt LaFleur loves receivers that can block, and Wallace is a great blocker. He was capped a bit by what the Oklahoma State offense wanted him to do but getting Wallace late in the third round is one of the biggest steals of the draft.

For more on Wallace, read our scouting report on him here.

93. Buffalo Bills – Israel Mukuamu, CB, South Carolina

Buffalo has had three picks so far, and all three picks have been on the defensive side of the ball. Mukuamu is the other cornerback for South Carolina, and Buffalo is still trying to find a second cornerback to go along with Tre’Davious White, and hope Mukuamu is the answer.

94. Washington Football Team (via Kansas City) – Pete Werner, LB, Ohio State

Washington takes advantage of another player falling down the draft board. Werner would immediately battle for a starting spot and provide valuable depth to an already deep linebacker room.

95. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Trey Smith, IOL, Tennesee

The Buccaneers roster is one of the best in the league following re-signing almost all of the players they needed to. Like many in this round, Tampa Bay can pick the best player available with this pick. Taking Smith to compete along the interior of the offensive line is a great idea and provides much-needed depth on the offensive line.

96. Detroit Lions (via New England) – Jay Tufele, DL, USC

Two USC defensive lineman go within eight picks of each other. Tufele is paired with Michael Brockers, who the Lions just traded for to boost the effects of the Lions’ front seven.

97. Seattle Seahawks (via LA Chargers) – Jaylen Twyman, DL, Pittsburgh

The release of Jarran Reed opens up a large hole on the interior of the defensive line for Seattle. The Seahawks solve two problems in one here by picking Twyman, who can also rush the passer.

98. New Orleans Saints – Andre Cisco, S, Syracuse

Somehow, the Saints were able to franchise-tag Marcus Williams. Even with Williams on the roster for 2021, it is unknown if New Orleans can sign him to a long-term extension, so addressing safety is a need for them. Cisco was thought of as potentially the top safety in the class back in September but has taken a bit of a fall since. New Orleans is happy to scoop him up in the back of the third round.

99. Dallas Cowboys – Osa Odighizuwa, DL, UCLA

Dallas has spent day two picks on Neville Gallimore and Trysten Hill in recent years, and neither has provided much of an impact. Odighizuwa could be better than both of them and provides needed depth along the defensive line.

For more on Odighizuwa, read our scouting report on him here.

100. Tennessee Titans – Hunter Long, TE, Boston College

There is perhaps no team fit that Long is better in than Tennessee. With Tennessee losing Smith, adding a tight end with a ton of versatility with his blocking and receiving skills is much-needed. The Titans get that by selecting Long.

For more on Long, read our scouting report on him here.

101. Detroit Lions (via LA Rams) – Jordan Smith, EDGE, UAB

The Lions have taken a heavy approach to fix the defense in this draft. After spending two picks in the secondary, they have spent two picks along the front-seven. Smith provides depth but could also take over for Trey Flowers if he doesn’t live up to his massive contract.

102. San Francisco 49ers – Ben Cleveland, IOL, Georgia

With the 49ers bringing back Trent Williams, that solves their tackle problem. San Francisco could still afford to get better on the interior, specifically at left guard, where Laken Tomlinson is currently starting. Once Cleveland sets foot onto the practice field, he will battle with Tomlinson for that starting spot.

103. Los Angeles Rams – Benjamin St-Juste, CB, Minnesota

After Troy Hill left in free agency for Cleveland, the Rams desperately need more players at cornerback. Jalen Ramsey is one of the best in the league, and Darious Williams showed some promise last year and could start opposite of Ramsey. Adding St-Juste to the fold would be an excellent investment late in the third round as a solid option. St-Juste had an excellent Senior Bowl week that has resulted in his stock soaring.

104. Baltimore Ravens – Ar’Darius Washington, S, TCU

Stop me if you’ve ever heard this before. The Ravens got a steal in the third round. It happened last year with Devin Duvernay and again here as they take Washington. Baltimore has one of the deepest secondaries in the league, and adding Washington, who can play either safety spot, as well as slot cornerback, would be a steal in the third round.

For more on Washington, read our scouting report on him here.

105. New Orleans Saints – Marvin Wilson, DL, Florida State

Malcolm Brown was traded to Jacksonville, leaving a hole along the interior of the defensive line. Wilson was once thought of as one of the best defensive linemen in the draft but has taken a significant fall. With the Saints needing depth along their defensive line, Wilson is the final pick of this three-round mock draft.
