2021 NFL Draft mock 3.0: Baltimore Ravens add IOL stud
29. New Orleans Saints: Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue
Emmanuel Sanders is solid, but he’s going to turn 34-years old in March and isn’t the receiver he once was. The Saints need to start thinking about life after him. Moore is a terrific slot receiver like Sanders, maybe the best in the 2021 NFL Draft, with top-end speed to stretch defenses. Moore would look really nice next to Michael Thomas and give New Orleans a great receiving core once again.
30. Buffalo Bills: Joesph Ossai, EDGE, Texas
The Bills amassed a solid 38 sacks in 2020 thanks to the combined efforts of its players. No one on the team had more than five sacks, however, and rookie A.J. Epenesa left a lot to be desired. Buffalo needs to get themselves a more reliable pass rush and it starts with the athletic marvel that is Ossai. Ossai should be a much better edge rusher at the next level than he is a complete linebacker, but his coverage will hardly matter when he’s asked to attack the quarterback.
31. Green Bay Packers: Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State
Olave doesn’t look like a typical Packers’ receiver at 6’1″, but he’s quick and explosive. Olave is one of the 2021 NFL Draft’s more fun players with his big-play potential that he regularly flashed against the Clemson Tigers. Aaron Rodgers would love to add a more reliable deep threat to his high-powered offense.
32. Kansas City Chiefs: Alijah Vera-Tucker, IOL, USC
What do you get for the team that seemingly has everything? More protection for Patrick Mahomes. Vera-Tucker is a mean SOB and one of the better offensive linemen in this class. His availability at the end of round one has more to do with his position than his talent. He could easily wind up being one of the steals of the 2021 NFL Draft.
