Final Ebony Bird 2021 NFL Draft mock: Ravens get instant impact guys
The 2021 NFL Draft is mere hours away, so here is our final mock draft of this draft season. What will the Baltimore Ravens do with two first-round picks?
1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson
This might be the easiest pick to lock-in in the history of the NFL. The Jaguars (seemingly) haven’t even considered any other options for the best quarterback prospect since Andrew Luck and one of the greatest prospects ever. Lawrence is a franchise-defining player and will turn Jacksonville’s fortunes around in a hurry.
2. New York Jets: Zach Wilson, QB, BYU
This pick also seems as inevitable as Thanos. Wilson has been nicknamed “The Mormon (Johnny) Manziel” because of his ridiculous mobility and arm strength to go along with his God-given talents at quarterback. The Jets traded away Sam Darnold this offseason so they’re almost assuredly taking a quarterback. Wilson has got to be their guy.
3. San Francisco 49ers: Trey Lance, QB, North Dakota State
There’s a lot of smoke that the 49ers guy is Mac Jones but I won’t believe it until I see it. Until then, Trey Lance feels like a great fit for Kyle Shanahan’s offense and with the weapons in place, we could see a fantastic rookie season out of the NDSU quarterback.
4. Atlanta Falcons: Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida
The Falcons should strongly consider drafting a quarterback here, but instead, they’ll take the best player available in Pitts. Pitts is one of the greatest tight end prospects ever, so drafting him despite trading for Hayden Hurst last offseason shouldn’t deter Atlanta here. Pitts in this offense would be ruthless.
