NFL Draft Day 2: Top 10 Big Board and Mock Draft

What an eventful first day of the 2021 NFL Draft.  While it was predictable the Jaguars and Jets would do with their picks, the draft exploded into complete chaos after the 49ers picked Trey Lance sending Justin Fields into a free fall where Chicago traded up to acquire him.  With only a handful of trades, the draft order stayed pretty much the same, but with the same amount of chaos we’ve come to know and love about the draft, leaving many players available.  We’re going to break down who the Top 10 players on my big board are along with, yes a Day 2 Mock Draft.  So let’s dive into this:

10. TE Pat Friermuth Penn State- The standout TE at Penn State is your prototypical big TE with good athleticism.  He’s got the size to make big plays in the passing game, but also can be a factor in the blocking game as well.  The only reason he wasn’t a 1st Rounder was he isn’t a super athletic TE like a Kyle Pitts.  He’ll be a solid addition to a team that needs a TE.

9. CB Ifeatu Melifonwu Syracuse- His size, length, and athleticism make him an intriguing prospect no matter what.  Add to that his production at Syracuse makes him a prospect that you can develop into a starting CB that can handle bigger WRs and you can’t put a price tag on that.

8. LB Jabrill Cox LSU- Athletic as all get out and can do it all.  His production from North Dakota State to LSU proves he can handle better competition and can play at the NFL level.  His most intriguing ability is his coverage ability and is very scheme friendly.

7. OC Creed Humphrey Oklahoma- Humphrey was the anchor of the Sooners line who can do it all.  He can play all 3 interior line positions and can be an impact starter from Day 1.  He had some first round buzz and I wouldn’t expect him to stay on the board long.

6. CB Asante Samuel Jr. Florida State- The son of Asante Samuel Sr., he was extremely productive at Florida State, having the lowest passer rating on passes thrown his direction.  What the deterring factor is he’s slightly undersized and not as athletic as other CBs in this draft.  He was a shutdown CB and for the right team he can be a productive corner, but who will overlook his concerns?

5. DT Christian Barmore Alabama- Barmore has slipped due to a report that he doesn’t take well to coaching.  If this report is true, he could continue to slide.  On talent alone, he’s explosive and a disruptive force in the middle.  It’s going to take a strong culture, but some team could end up getting a steal with Barmore.

4. WR Terrace Marshall LSU- There have been some medical red flags with Marshall that might’ve cost him the 1st Round.  But his production at LSU showed it doesn’t matter if Joe Burrow or anyone else is throwing him the football, he makes plays.  With his size and athletic ability, he has all the potential on the right team with the right QB to become a WR1

3. LB/S Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah Notre Dame- The simple reason why he fell out of Round 1 was he has no position.  Is he a LB?  Is he a S?  He’s undersized and athletic with a non-stop motor.  It’s going to take a real plan and creative coaching to find a fit for him.  We saw it with Isaiah Simmons in Arizona, talent can be there but you need a position.

2. WR Elijah Moore Ole Miss- I mean if the kid was 2 inches taller he’d be a Top 15 pick.  I don’t care if he’s 5’9’’, the kid knows how to ball out.  He’s explosive and an outstanding route runner.  He plays bigger than his size and will be a steal for whoever drafts him.  I may be biased, but he’s my favorite WR in the draft.

1. S Trevon Moehrig TCU- I guess nobody values Safeties?  Moehrig is a 1st Round talent and he fell to Day 2.  It makes zero sense to me.  He has the size, the athletic ability, but he’s outstanding in coverage.  He does everything great Safeties do.  I fully expect him because of need him to be off the board at 33 to Jacksonville.

86. Minnesota Vikings- EDGE Janarius Robinson Florida State

87. Pittsburgh Steelers- QB Kyle Trask Florida

88. Los Angeles Rams- OT James Hudson Cincinnati

89. Cleveland Browns- LB Cameron McGrone Michigan– While Linebackers do not matter in a 4-2-5, the Browns find great value in McGrone here and add him to a LB room where he could quickly become a starter on the Defense.

90. Minnesota Vikings- QB Kellen Mond Texas A&M

91. Cleveland Browns- WR Anthony Schwartz Auburn– This is a slight reach, but Schwartz’s track speed on the field makes him a home run threat the Browns are lacking. It’ll take some patience to develop him, but he could be a piece the Browns desperately need on their offense.

92. Green Bay Packers- DT Milton Williams Louisiana Tech

93. Buffalo Bills- RB Michael Carter North Carolina

94. Baltimore Ravens- S Andre Cisco Syracuse

103. Los Angeles Rams- OG Ben Cleveland Georgia

104. Baltimore Ravens- DT Alim McNeil NC State

105. New Orleans Saints- S Tyree Gillespie Missouri

In theory there will be a lot of trades with teams trying to fill needs with players that have fallen to go with teams who don’t have needs try to acquire future assets.  For fans who haven’t been to the NFL Draft Experience, if you can still go as someone who attended it Thursday night, I highly recommend it.  As for Day 2 of the NFL Draft here’s hoping your team does what you want them to do and join us at https://www.twitch.tv/dahalestorm727 for The Top Dawgs Livestream of Day 2 of the NFL Draft!
