2021 NFL Draft mock: Baltimore Ravens add a wide receiver late
1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson
I like Gardner Minshew, but if the Jacksonville Jaguars are picking this high it’s because their quarterback failed them. There’s no way they can pass on the best draft prospect, not just quarterback, since Andrew Luck in Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence.
2. Washington Redskins: Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon
The Washington Redskins could also be in play for a quarterback here, but they’ll take an elite-level tackle prospect in Oregon’s Penei Sewell. You’d have to nitpick to find any flaws in his game, giving Washington a franchise cornerstone for whoever is throwing the football.
3. Cincinnati Bengals: Gregory Rousseau, EDGE, Miami (FL.)
The Cincinnati Bengals acquired their franchise quarterback in 2020 via Joe Burrow. Now the team will go to the opposite side of the football and get a top-flight pass rusher in Miami FL.’s Gregory Rousseau, who finished with 15.5 sacks in 2019, second-most in the nation only behind Chase Young.
4. Carolina Panthers: Trey Lance, QB, North Dakota State
If the Carolina Panthers are picking this high then the Teddy Bridgewater experiment failed and he’s nothing more than an great backup option. Head coach Matt Rhule will then be searching for his franchise quarterback and fall in love with NDSU’s Trey Lance. Lance threw 28 touchdowns against zero interceptions and added 14 more scores as a runner in 2019 and will only be better entering his redshirt sophomore year.
