2021 NFL Mock Draft: Final Mock 7 Rounds

Round 3

Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Last Updated: April 29, 2021.

  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Amari Rodgers, WR, Clemson

    The 5-9 201 lb Amari Rodgers dominated in Mobile showcasing his route running and Moss like catches during both the Senior Bowl practice as well as the Senior Bowl game. Amari Rogers had 77 receptions, 1,020 receiving yards, and 7 receiving touchdowns in 2020 when being the go-to-guy for Clemson at wide receiver.

    Jacksonville loses three wide receivers to Free Agency. They get Amari Rodgers as a slot receiver to compliment D.J. Chark and Laviska Shenault Jr. Getting someone who is familiar with Lawrence plus he's the one receiver at the Senior Bowl outside of Kdarius Toney who can run all 30 routes on tape. Shenault can run all 30 routes, plus you got Chark as the go-to-guy so giving Lawrence Chark and two receivers that can run all 30 routes on tape is gonna put him in great position to succeed. This also allows you to use your day 3 picks on the defensive side of the ball.

  2. New York Jets: Jabril Cox, ROLB, LSU

    The 6-2 233 lb Jabril Cox was a 4-3 right outside linebacker playing the weak side WILL position at North Dakota State before transferring to LSU. He played 4-3 middle linebacker and 4-3 left outside linebacker at LSU. He projects to play the WILL where he played at North Dakota State in the NFL.

    New York now has Jabril Cox at 4-3 right outside linebacker, C.J. Mosley at 4-3 middle lienbacker, and Jarrad Davis at 4-3 left outside linebacker for their 4-3 defense.

    Previous Pick: Ronnie Perkins, 3-4 ROLB, Oklahoma

  3. Houston Texans: Ronnie Perkins, 3-4 ROLB, Oklahoma

    The 6-3 247 lb Ronnie Perkins played 4-3 right end and 4-3 left end at Oklahoma. He's got the body of an outside linebacker and can play with his hand in the dirt or without his hand in the dirt. Ronnie Perkins is the only pass rusher in this draft with a pass rushing and run stuffing grade of 90 according to Pro Football Focus. Ronnie Perkins had 10.5 tackles for a loss, 9 quarterback hurries, and 5.5 sacks in 2020. He needs to get stronger, but he's someone who can push Whitney Mercilus back into a 3-4 left outside linebacker role where he thrived when Houston had Jadeveon Clowney.

    Previous Pick: Jordan Smith, 3-4 ROLB, UAB

  4. Atlanta Falcons: Jayson Oweh, RE, Penn State

    Atlanta needs multiple edge rushers. They get Jayson Oweh here who is being hyped as a first round prospect due to his freakish athleticism. He's all athlete no strength like Barkevious Mingo and Dion Jordan. He struggled against Ohio State and Maryland, but did well versus Michigan winning some reps versus Jalen Mayfield. If he develops his rip and swim moves while getting stronger he's got a shot to succeed. Oweh will get picked here if he makes it to 68.

    Previous Pick: Rashad Weaver, LE, Pittsburgh

  5. Cincinnati Bengals: Quinn Meinerz, LG, Wisconsin-Whitewater

    The 6-3 320 lb Quinn Meinerz played left guard at Wisconsin-Whitewater. Quinn Meinerz was the player of the week at the 2021 Reese's Senior Bowl. He showed the versatility to play left guard, center, or right guard on the interior offensive line in Mobile.

    Quinn Meinerz has the pass blocking, pass blocking strength, pass blocking footwork, run blocking, run blocking strength, run blocking footwork, and zone blocking. Cincinnati's offensive line now consists of Jonah Williams at left tackle, Quinn Meinerz at left guard, Trey Hopkins at center, Wyatt Davis at right guard, and Riley Reiff at right tackle. That's what the Bengals do now thanks to not taking Sewell at 5. See how passing on Sewell altered Cincinnati's entire draft?

    Previous Pick: Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State

  6. Philadelphia Eagles: Robert Rochell, CB, Central Arkansas

    Philadelphia gets a cornerback to compliment Darius Slay here at 70. One FCS player I love besides Trey Lance, Dillon Radunz, and Senior Bowl practice player of the week Quinn Meinerz is Robert Rochell. Rochell reminds me of Josh Norman coming out of Coastal Carolina.

    I posted a film cut of Central Arkansas cornerback Robert Rochell. For more film cuts go to the Draft Utopia Youtube Channel to subscribe for more notifications and updates.

    Previous Pick: Baron Browning, ROLB, Ohio State

  7. Denver Broncos: Jordan Smith, 3-4 LOLB, UAB

    The 6-6 255 lb Jordan Smith has a lot of speed and explosiveness off the edge. He's got rip moves and swim moves. He's decent in coverage, but not great in it. He will develop behind a lethal edge rusher duo in Von Miller at 3-4 right outside linebacker and Bradley Chubb at 3-4 left outside linebacker.

    Jordan Smith dominated with 34 solo tackles, 19 assisted tackles, 53 total tackles, 17.5 tackles for a loss, 10 sacks, and 8 quarterback hurries in 2019. Jordan Smith only had 24 solo tackles, 19 assisted tackles, 43 total tackles, 9.5 tackles for a loss, 4.5 sacks, and 8 quarterback hurries in 2020.

    Previous Pick: Jay Tuefele, NT, USC

  8. Detroit Lions: Alim McNeill, DT, North Carolina State

    The 6-2 320 lb Alim McNeill is a decent 4-3 defensive tackle. He gives Detroit depth at defensive tackle at the very worst. He could give Detroit a starter at defensive tackle at the best. Pro Football Focus believes he's the second best defensive tackle in the entire draft.

    Previous Pick: D'Wayne Eskridge, WR, Western Michigan

  9. Carolina Panthers: Jaylen Twyman, DT, Pittsburgh

    The 6-2 291 lb Jaylen Twyman had 12 tackles for a loss and 10.5 sacks in 2019 before opting out of 2020. Twyman is the best defensive tackle to come out of Pittsburgh since Aaron Donald.

    Carolina grabs a replacement to Kawaan Short here for their 4-3 defense. Jaylen Twyman is an ideal option at this point in the third round.

  10. Washington Football Team: Baron Browning, ROLB, Ohio State

    The 6-2 243 lb Baron Browning is versatile enough to play 4-3 right outside linebacker, 4-3 middle linebacker, and 4-3 left outside linebacker. He does well in both man and zone coverage. He can play cover 0, cover 1, cover 2, cover 3, or cover 4 when dropping back into coverage just like a cornerback or safety. He has good, but not great athleticism. Struggles with wrapping up his tackles, but had a good week in Mobile during the 2021 Reese's Senior Bowl Washington drafts Baron Browning as a 4-3 right outside linebacker to replace Thomas Davis here.

    Previous Pick: Elijah Molden, CB, Washington

  11. Dallas Cowboys: Chazz Surratt, LOLB, North Carolina

    Dallas gets a linebacker to compliment Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch. Chazz Surratt may be the answer. I'm aware of the fact that Dallas got Keanu Neal as a linebacker in Free Agency. That doesn't change the fact that Chazz Surratt is a better scheme fit for that third outside linebacker role because I see Keanu Neal as a safety. If Dallas plays Keanu Neal at linebacker I think he'll regress even with Dan Quinn as his defensive coordinator.

    The 6-3 230 lb Chazz Surratt lined up at 4-3 right outside linebacker, 4-3 middle linebacker, and 4-3 left outside linebacker. Chazz Surratt had 66 solo tackles, 49 assisted tackles, 115 total tackles, 15 tackles for a loss, 10 quarterback hurries, 6.5 sacks, and 3 deflections from pass breakups in his first season at linebacker in 2019 after converting from quarterback to linebacker.

    Chazz Surratt had 49 solo tackles, 42 assisted tackles, 91 total tackles, 7.5 tackles for a loss, 6 sacks, and 6 quarterback hurries in 2020. He also did well in the 2021 Reese's Senior Bowl during practices making him the perfect piece to compliment Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch.

    Previous Pick: Talona Hufanga, FS, USC

  12. New York Giants: Cameron McGrone, 3-4 MLB, Michigan

    The 6-1 236 lb Cameron McGrone has three down ability. Good at pass rushing as a blitzer, stopping the run, and dropping into coverage. High football IQ guy. In fact he's the only three down 3-4 middle linebacker left in this draft. There are some Denver Broncos fans that want this guy in the third round, but Denver has A.J. Johnson and Josey Jewell. New York on the other hand, needs a starter at 3-4 middle linebacker across from Blake Martinez.

    Previous Pick: Elijah Moore, WR, Ole Miss

  13. Los Angeles Chargers: Trill Williams, CB, Syracuse

    Trill Williams lined up against number one receivers as the field cornerback on Syracuse despite playing with Ifeatu Melifonwu. Trill Williams is more versatile and he's faced better receivers. However, he's not as dominant in man and press coverage as Obi Melifonwu's little brother. He is however better in zone coverage than Ifeatu Melifonwu. Trill Williams is pretty effective in man coverage too. His press coverage is his biggest weakness. He can play in a cover 0, cover 1, cover 2, cover 3, or cover 4 scheme.

    Previous Pick: Kelvin Joseph, CB, Kentucky

  14. Minnesota Vikings: Patrick Jones II, RE, Pittsburgh

    The 6-4 264 lb Patrick Jones II lined up as a 4-3 right end on the Pittsburgh Panthers. He packs a powerful punch with his 10 inch hands. Patrick Jones II had 25 solo tackles, 16 assisted tackles, 41 total tackles, 11.5 tackles for a loss, and 8.5 sacks in 2019. Patrick Jones II had 24 solo tackles, 18 assisted tackles, 42 total tackles, 12.5 tackles ofr a loss, and 9 sacks in 2020.

    Minnesota needs a 4-3 right end to take pressure off of Danielle Hunter. I gave them Patrick Jones II out of Pittsburgh with this selection.

    Here is our interview of Patrick Jones II from the 2021 Reese's Senior Bowl. You can click the link below to listen to that recorded press conference of Pittsburgh defensive end Patrick Jones II.

    Previous Pick: Tommy Togiai, DT, Ohio State

  15. Las Vegas Raiders: Talona Hufanga, FS, USC

    The 6-1 215 lb Talona Hufanga is the first Polynesian safety to play for USC since Troy Polamalu. His hard hitting, football IQ, vision, and zone coverage resemble the former Pittsburgh Steeler as he won the Pat Tillman Pac 12 Player Of the year award in 2020. He's also being represented by Leigh Steinberg who has represented numerous top draft picks.

    I may have a third round grade on Talona Hufanga at the moment. He's a good fit for the Las Vegas Raiders here.

    In Las Vegas Talona Hufanga will compete with Karl Joseph and Jeff Heath for a starting safety spot across from strong safety Jonathan Abram. Talona Hufanga can play strong safety or free safety with his versatility. Talona Hufanga is more experienced lining up at strong safety, but he'll be able to make the transition to free safety if he wins the starting free safety job. Las Vegas has depth at both safety spots by taking Hufanga here at 79.

    Previous Pick: Deonte Brown, RG, Alabama

  16. Las Vegas Raiders: Tommy Togiai, DT, Ohio State

    The 6-2 300 lb Tommy Togiai is a consensus third round prospect. I don't trust Clellin Ferrell or Solomon Thomas as a 4-3 defensive tackle. I'm not a fan of taking a run stuffing defensive end and converting him to defensive tackle if he didn't play the position in High School or in College. Drafting Tommy Togiai at 80 puts Ferrell or Thomas in a position where they have to compete with Togiai to earn that job.

    Previous Pick: Spencer Brown, RT, Northern Iowa

  17. Miami Dolphins: Kenneth Gainwell, RB, Memphis

    Miami finally gets a running back in the third round. Kenneth Gainwell is the top ranked running back on the board making him an ideal fit for Miami. He's a better pass catcher than anyone on their roster.

  18. Washington Football Team: Pete Werner, MLB, Ohio State

    The 6-2 238 lb Pete Werner is versatile enough to play 4-3 right outside linebacker, 4-3 middle linebacker, and 4-3 left outside linebacker. He's a three down linebacker. Washington needs more bodies at linebacker so they grab Werner here despite his lack of athleticism on tape because he can be used as a three down linebacker. Washington uses both of their third round picks on Ohio State linebackers as Baron Browning and Pete Werner get to play together in the Nation's Capital.

    Previous Pick: Hunter Long, TE, Boston College

  19. Chicago Bears: Spencer Brown, RT, Northern Iowa

    Chicago cut right tackle Bobbie Massie. Luckily for Chicago they get a huge steal at right tackle here with Northern Iowa right tackle Spencer Brown.

    The 6-8 314 lb Spencer Brown did well at right tackle for Northern Iowa. He's been training with former San Francisco 49ers left tackle Joe Staley leading up to the 2021 Reese's Senior Bowl.

    I posted a film cut of Northern Iowa right tackle Spencer Brown VS South Dakota State. Spencer Brown had 11 pancake blocks in this one game, and I posted two of his film cuts on my Youtube channel.

    Previous Pick: Dyami Brown, WR, North Carolina

  20. Philadelphia Eagles: Osa Odighizuwa, DT, UCLA

    The 6-2 280 lb Osa Odighizuwa has great explosion and first step ability. He needs to add some muscle weight and get stronger if he wants to become a starting 4-3 defensive tackle. Philadelphia needs depth at 4-3 defensive tackle so they take Osa earlier than expected. He can spend time in the weight room and keep honing his game until he gets an opportunity to play.

    Previous Pick: Jabril Cox, ROLB, LSU

  21. Tennessee Titans: Tyler Shelvin, NT, LSU

    The 6-3 346 lb Tyler Shelvin is a third round prospect. Tennessee grabs a starting nose tackle here.

    Previous Pick: Jamin Davis, MLB, Kentucky

  22. New York Jets: Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State

    The 5-11 193 lb Tylan Wallace had his best season in 2018 when he had 86 receptions, 1,491 receiving yards, and 12 receiving touchdowns taking over for James Washington. Wallace only had 53 receptions, 903 receiving yards, and 8 receiving touchdowns in 2019 before having 59 receptions, 922 receiving yards, and 6 receiving touchdowns in 2020.

    Tylan Wallace had a good Senior Bowl week. He may be a fit for New York at slot receiver with Denzel Mims and Corey Davis. Jameson Crowder is talented, but Wallace has a higher ceiling and he's someone who will push Crowder to improve on his 2020 season in 2021.

    Previous Pick: Kyle Trask, QB, Florida

  23. Pittsburgh Steelers: Josh Myers, C, Ohio State

    The 6-5 312 lb Josh Myers doesn't have as nearly as high of a ceiling as Maurkice Pouncey. The top two centers Creed Humphrey and Landon Dickerson are off the board though. Pittsburgh should feel relieved that they managed to get one of the top three centers who can start right away this late in the third round.

    Previous Pick: Walker Little, LT, Stanford

  24. Los Angeles Rams: Tyrie Gillespie, FS, Missouri

    The Los Angeles Rams lost Josh Johnson to Cleveland. They draft Tyrie Gillespie who ran a 4.36 40-time at Missouri's Pro Day as a replacement. Gillespie did well on film and had a good 2021 Reese's Senior Bowl week. The Rams suprise people and tkae Gillespie earlier than expected.

    Previous Pick: Alim McNeil, NT, North Carolina State

  25. Cleveland Browns: Rashad Weaver, LE, Pittsburgh

    The 6-5 270 lb Rashad Weaver can line up at 4-3 right end or 4-3 left end with his versatility just like Patrick Jones II. He's got the strength, block shedding, rip moves, and swim moves to win one-on-ones. His athleticism isn't what you'd like it to be because he came back from a torn ACL in 2019. He also struggles with wrapping up tackles. Weaver did outperform Patrick Jones II at Pitt's Pro Day, but I have more confidence in Jones from what I've seen on tape. It's worth noting that some boards have Weaver going ahead of Jones.

    Cleveland would have Myles Garrett and Jadeveon Clowney two former number one picks as starting 4-3 defensive ends. Takkarist McKinley a former first round pick turned bust is taking Adrian Clayborn's spot. Rashad Weaver would be able to learn from those first round picks while he improves his athleticism and ability to wrap up tackles. Weaver could develop into a starter down the road if he fixes his athleticism and ability to wrap up tackles. At the very worst, he'll be an effective backup for depth at 4-3 defensive end.

    Previous Pick: Keith Taylor, CB, Washington

  26. Minnesota Vikings: Cam Sample, DT, Tulane

    The 6-2 274 lb Cam Sample lined up at both 4-3 defensive end spots at Tulane as an edge rusher next to Patrick Johnson. He also lined up inside at 4-3 defensive tackle. Cam Sample was my top ranked fourth round prospect, but with Minnesota needing two defensive tackles things change. Minnesota also hasn't drafted a defensive tackle yet after taking Darrisaw at 14 and Patrick Jones II at 78. Cam Sample won one-on-ones against right tackles in guards at practice during the 2021 Reese's Senior Bowl before winning Defensive MVP of the 2021 Reese's Senior Bowl. Jim Nagy also hinted that Sample could go earlier than expected. This means Minnesota will either have to sign Eric Fisher after the draft at left tackle or they will have to wait until 2022 to get a blindside for Kirk Cousins since this draft does not have a starting left tackle after the third round.

    Previous Pick: Jackson Carman, LT, Clemson

  27. Cleveland Browns: Asante Samuel Jr., CB, Florida State

    Asante Samuel Jr. looks elite in man coverage, zone coverage, and press coverage. He can play cover 0, cover 1, cover 2, cover 3, or cover 4. If he was 6-1 instead of 5-10 you could make an argument for him being the top cornerback in this years draft. Cleveland has Denzel Ward, Greedy Williams, and Troy Hill. Asante Samuel Jr. can come in push someone who played quite a bit in 2020 like MJ Stewart for the dime cornerback which would push Stewart back to the quarter cornerback role.

    Previous Pick: Tyler Shelvin, DT, LSU

  28. Green Bay Packers: D'Wayne Eskridge, WR, Western Michigan

    The 5-9 188 lb D'Wayne Eskridge is probably the shiftiest receiver in this draft outside of Kadarius Toney. He had a strong week in Mobile after having 8 receiving touchdowns despite the lack of production in a shortened 2020 season and is the best route running receiver Western Michigan has had since Corey Davis.

    D'Wayne Eskridge may not be that big body number two receiver you want next to DaVante Adams. Last time Green Bay took a Western Michigan receiver they got a guy named Greg Jennings who was pretty good early in Aaron Rodgers career. Green Bay gambles on Eskeridge here after passing on defense in the first two rounds.

    Previous Pick: Josh Myers, C, Ohio State

  29. Buffalo Bills: Deonte Brown, RG, Alabama

    The 6-3 364 lb Deonte Brown can pass block and run block. He never gave up a sack in his four years as a starting guard on Alabama. He's versatile enough to play both left guard and right guard. I was going to consider giving Buffalo an offensive tackle for depth, but with Buffalo signing Bobby Hart, there's probably a better chance they use this pick on a guard for depth.

    Deonte Brown would be a good swing guard for depth behind both left guard Cody Ford and right guard Jon Feliciano. Buffalo can help Brown find a dietian. If Brown gets a chance to lose weight and develop behind Ford and Feliciano he could be solid down the road. If he's forced to start right away he may struggle early. The fact that he never gave up a sack in College at Alabama is why I'm willing to gamble on him this late in the third round.

    Previous Pick: D'Ante Smith, RT, East Carolina

  30. Baltimore Ravens: Quincy Roche, 3-4 ROLB, Miami FL

    Baltimore uses this second pick from Kansas City in the Orlando Brown Jr. trade to get a 3-4 right outside linebacker here. The 6-2 243 lb Quincy Roche had 19 tackles for a loss and 13 sacks in 2019 next to Gregory Rosseau. Quincy Roche only had 14.5 tackles for a loss and 4.5 sacks in 2020. Quincy Roche had a strong week in Mobile. Roche ran a better 40-time than Gregory Rosseau so he shouldn't get past Baltimore in the third round.

    Previous Pick: Quinn Meinerz, LG, Wisconsin-Whitewater

  31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Walker Little, LT, Stanford

    Tampa Bay gets a left tackle to push Donovan Smith for the left tackle job here. Walker Little is a superb value pick this late in the third round.

    The 6-7 315 lb Walker Little was a five star recruit in High School. He has proven to be an effective pass blocker, run blocker, and zone blocker. Walker Little's biggest concern is durability. He won't have to play unless Donovan Smith is injured.

    Previous Pick: Trey Sermon, RB, Ohio State

  32. New England Patriots: Elijah Moore, WR, Ole Miss

    New England got this compensation pick at 96 despite losing their first third round pick for videotaping the Bengals because quarterback Tom Brady signed with Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I've seen Elijah Moore listed as high as the mid to late second round so to get him here at 95 is an absolute steal.

    The 5-9 185 lb Elijah Moore had 86 receptions, 1,193 receiving yards, and 8 receiving touchdowns in 2020. New England gets their replacement for Julian Edelman here with the pick they got for Tom Brady.

  33. Los Angeles Chargers: Hunter Long, TE, Boston College

    Los Angeles got this compensation pick at 97 because Philip Rivers signed with the Indianapolis Colts. Now they use this pick on a tight end to push Jared Cook Jr. for the starting tight end spot now that Hunter Henry is gone.

    The 6-5 254 lb Hunter Long had 57 receptions, 685 receiving yards, and 5 receiving touchdowns in 2020. He showed flashes of a young Austin Hooper on film as he's good at everything, but not great at anything. He dropped some passes during practices in Mobile. If you just watch the tape and look past these drops in Mobile, he's the fourth best tight end in this draft. Hunter Long would learn under Jared Cook Jr. for a year before taking over the starting tight end role in 2022.

  34. New Orleans Saints: Dyami Brown, WR, North Carolina

    New Orleans got this compensation pick at 98 because Teddy Bridgewater signed with the Carolina Panthers. Carolina was one of two division rivals to help New Orleans get a third round compensation pick. New Orleans can repay their division rivals by hitting on both compensation picks.

    The 6-0 185 lb Dyami Brown had 55 receptions, 1,099 receiving yards, and 8 receiving touchdowns in 2020. Dyami Brown tied Devonta Smith for the most 40+ yard receptions with 17. He also averaged 20 yards per catch. New Orleans gets their number two target next to Michael Thomas here.

  35. Dallas Cowboys: Elijah Molden, CB, Washington

    Dallas got this compensation pick at 99 when Byron Jones signed with the Miami Dolphins at cornerback which is why they got this pick. Dallas grabs someone who can push Jourdan Lewis and Anthony Brown for the nickel cornerback job. With Patrick Surtain II and Trevon Diggs on the outside having those three compete for a nickel cornerback job gives Dallas a lot of depth at cornerback.

  36. Tennessee Titans: Jackson Carman, RT, Clemson

    Tennessee got this compensation pick at 100 after Jack Conklin signed with the Cleveland Browns. The 6-6 328 lb Jackson Carman lost 17 lbs. Jackson Carman held his own at left tackle against Chase Young in the 2019-2020 College Football Playoff at left tackle. He's the blindside for Trevor Lawrence and run blocks well for Travis Etienne. He's also someone who turned down a hometown deal with Ohio State to play for Clemson.

    Jackson Carman would get the opportunity to compete with Kendall Lamb for the right tackle job. I think that's a competition that Carman would have a chance to win which is why the Titans grab him if he falls to pick 100.

  37. Detroit Lions: Malcolm Koonce, RE, Buffalo

    The Los Angeles Rams got this compensation pick at 101 because Dante Fowler Jr. signed a contract with the Atlanta Falcons. This was the third round pick the Lions got in the Jared Goff Matthew Stafford trade. Detroit grabs a defensive end that can push the other defensive ends on the roster. One of my sleepers in this draft is Malcolm Koonce out of Buffalo who showed some promise on tape.

  38. San Francisco 49ers: Keith Taylor, CB, Washington

    San Francisco got this compensation pick at 102 because the New York Jets hired defensive coordinator Robert Saleh as their head coach which led to San Francisco getting this compensation pick. San Francisco grabs their first of two cornerbacks here.

    The 6-2 191 lb Keith Taylor has great man coverage skills. I feel like the rest of his game needs to develop. San Francisco gambles on Keith Taylor here hoping he can push Jason Verrett for the number one field cornerback spot on this roster with Richard Sherman gone.

  39. Los Angeles Rams: Monty Rice, 3-4 MLB, Georgia

    The Los Angeles Rams got this compensation pick at 103 because Detroit hired their director of College Scouting Brad Evans as General Manager. The Rams get a someone who could can compliment Micah Kiser. Monty Rice has a consensus fourth round grade, but he's a guy I like enough on tape to push into the late third round due to the demand for teams needing linebackers in this draft.

  40. Baltimore Ravens: D'Ante Smith, RG, East Carolina

    Baltimore got this comepnsation pick at 104 thanks to David Culley being hired as the Houston Texans head coach. Baltimore can draft Smith as an insurance plan in case they decide to trade Orlando Brown Jr.

    The 6-5 294 lb D'Ante Smith was a three year starter at left tackle for East Carolina. He reminds me of the Buffalo Bills current left tackle Dion Dawkins.

    D'Ante Smith manhandled Quincy Roche in the one-on-one drills in Mobile. He also showed the versatility to play left tackle, left guard, right guard, and right tackle. He gives Baltimore a guy they can develop behind right guard Kevin Zeitler at right guard.

  41. New Orleans Saints: Max Richardson, ROLB, Boston College

    New Orleans got this compensation pick at 105 thanks to their director of College Scouting Terry Fontenot accepting a General Manager job with the Atlanta Falcons, a division rival of New Orleans. New Orleans grabs a 4-3 right outside linebacker to replace Alex Anzalone. Max Richardson had 108 total tackles in 2019 and is the best Boston College linebacker I've seen on film since Matt Milano. Many are projecting a special teams guy, but I see a potential draft gem that could surprise people like Logan Wilson in the 2020 NFL Draft.
