NFL Mock Draft 3.0

Two days away. We are two freakin days away from the 2021 NFL Draft. Less than 48 hours from now, war rooms will be active, trade proposals will be flying and all cameras in the sports world will be focused in on Cleveland, Ohio. Now, most of the dust from the past weeks has settled and a lot of the picks are clearer. So, without further ado, here is Let's Talk Sports' NFL Mock Draft 3.0. Note: Any trades that have not been finalized as of April 27th, 2021 will not be included in this mock.

As per usual, the first round is stacked with players from the University of Alabama. They have six players slated to go in the first round, three of which land in the top 12. Wide receivers Jaylen Waddle (left) and Heisman Award winner Devonta Smith (right) headline the class, while cornerback Patrick Surtain II (center) is also a notable name selected early on.

2nd Overall Pick- New York Jets select Zach Wilson, QB, BYU

3rd Overall Pick- San Francisco 49ers select Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State

4th Overall Pick- Atlanta Falcons select Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida

5th Overall Pick- Cincinnati Bengals select Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon

6th Overall Pick- Miami Dolphins select Ja'Marr Chase, WR, LSU

7th Overall Pick- Detroit Lions select Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama

14th Overall Pick- Minnesota Vikings select Jaelan Phillips, EDGE, Miami

15th Overall Pick- New England Patriots select Mac Jones, QB, Alabama

The second half of the draft features a lot of players with the potential for steals. Cornerbacks Jaycee Horn (left) and Caleb Farley (right) already have all the tools to start for a team on day one, and will be great pieces for whoever drafts them. Additionally, linebacker Micah Parsons (center) was once a top five prospect for a reason. He is a stud and can be a huge boost to any team's front seven and linebacker core.

16th Overall Pick- Arizona Cardinals select Jaycee Horn, CB, South Carolina

17th Overall Pick- Las Vegas Raiders select Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB, Notre Dame

18th Overall Pick- Miami Dolphins select Azeez Ojulari, EDGE, Georgia

19th Overall Pick- Washington Football Team selects Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State

20th Overall Pick- Chicago Bears select Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech

21st Overall Pick- Indianapolis Colts select Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota

22nd Overall Pick- Tennessee Titans select Alijah Vera-Tucker, OT, USC

23rd Overall Pick- New York Jets select Greg Newsome II, CB, Northwestern

24th Overall Pick- Pittsburgh Steelers select Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas

25th Overall Pick- Jacksonville Jaguars select Christian Barmore, DL, Alabama

Despite being a strong class of running backs, none are taken in the first round of the 2021 draft. However, it is of note that running backs like Najee Harris (left) and Travis Etienne (center) could be drafted in the first round. Additionally, former Memphis running back Kenneth Gainwell is likely to go on Day 2 of the draft, and will be a name to remember in the 2021-22 season.
