2021 NFL Official Mock Draft: Round 2


With the 2021 NFL Draft upon us, The Athletes Hub has taken the time to compile their official mock draft. The mock draft will be compiled into two separate rounds, with Round One and Round Two currently available.

Round One can be found here

33. Jacksonville Jaguars- TE Pat Freiermuth, Penn State

After taking Trevon Moehrig in the first round, the Jaguars start the second round by selecting a weapon for their new franchise quarterback in Trevor Lawrence. Freiermuth has ties to new tight ends coach Tyler Bowen from his days at Penn State.

34. New York Jets- RB Najee Harris, Alabama

The New York Jets passed on the opportunity to grab a running back in the first round, but arguably land with the top backfield talent in the early stages of this round. With Tevin Coleman previously projected as the starter for New York, Harris’ ability to finish drives makes him an immediate weapon for Zach Wilson to lean on.

35. Atlanta Falcons- RB Javonte Williams, UNC

The Falcons once again go offense as they prepare themselves for an inevitable rebuild. Javonte Williams strikes comparisons to Nick Chubb and can be a bell-cow back for a team currently sitting with Mike Davis at the top of their depth chart. 

36. Miami Dolphins- OT Alex Leatherwood, Alabama

The Dolphins have maintained a balanced draft to this point, selecting tight end Kyle Pitts and pass-rusher Jaelan Phillips in the first round. Leatherwood is a conservative selection for Miami, as he impressed at his Pro Day and fits in multiple schemes.

37. Philadelphia Eagles- LB Jamin Davis, Kentucky

The strength of this draft class leans heavily on offense, which means the high upside depth on the defensive side of the ball should extend into Day 2. Davis has first-round upside and has the versatility to play at any of the three linebacker spots the Eagles ask him to step into.

38. Cincinnati Bengals- WR Kadarius Toney, Florida

Set to play without AJ Green for the first time since the 2010 season, Toney fits well with Cincinnati’s offensive scheme. At the Senior Bowl, Toney finished third in value (PFF Wins Above Average) behind quarterbacks Mac Jones and Ian Book.

39. Carolina Panthers- OT Spencer Brown, Northern Iowa

This pick is an obvious reach in terms of “best player available”, but then again, we see it happen every year. The Panthers are in dire need of a left tackle and have question marks at right tackle after this year with Taylor Moton on the franchise tag. Pat Meyer, the offensive line coach for Carolina, prioritizes arm length when evaluating the offensive front. Brown is freak athlete with 35-inch arms and got a firsthand look from the Panthers coaching staff during Senior Bowl week.

40. Denver Broncos- CB Eric Stokes, Nebraska

The Broncos traded a sixth round pick to Carolina for Teddy Bridgewater to help shore up the quarterback position. Because of that, Denver decides to set themselves up at the cornerback position long term. Kyle Fuller was only brought in on a one year deal and Callaghan is a free agent at the end of the year

41. Detroit Lions- LB Jabril Cox, LSU

Jabril Cox held a private workout on Monday after missing LSU’s Pro Day with a hamstring injury. The Lions were one of a handful of teams to attend and seem sold on grabbing him come Day 2. Cox is someone who will likely slide to an outside linebacker role in the NFL and has great coverage skills for his position.

42. New York Giants- C Landon Dickerson, Alabama

Dickerson spoke with the media this month about potential interest in joining the Giants, and seemed to be on board. He could be selected as high as the late stages of the first round, but instead becomes a value pick for New York.

43. San Francisco 49ers- G Wyatt Davis, Ohio State

After selecting their quarterback of the future in the first round, the 49ers will add to their offensive line depth in the early stages of this particular draft. Alex Mack turns 36 during the upcoming season, while Daniel Brunskill sits on a contract year.

44. Dallas Cowboys- DT Levi Onwuzurike, Washington

The Cowboys will use this draft class as an opportunity to address their needs on the defensive end. After previously selecting Patrick Surtain, the front office will shift their focus to the defensive line. Tyrone Crawford and Aldon Smith were among important pieces to leave the team this offseason.

45. Jacksonville Jaguars- DE Carlos Basham, Wake Forest

The Jaguars continue to put together a strong draft class, but will need to add a pass-rusher in the early rounds to establish a presence on the defensive side of the ball. Basham is a middle of the road prospect who should be able to address Jacksonville’s major concerns.

46. TRADE ALERT: Washington Football Team- QB Davis Mills, Stanford

Washington Receives: 2021 Second-Round Pick (#46 overall)

New England Receives: 2021 Second-Round Pick (#51 overall), 2022 Third-Round Pick

Washington will likely start Ryan Fitzpatrick in Week 1 of the 2021 season, but have been connected to Davis Mills throughout the pre-draft process. Other teams will likely make calls to grab Mills, but Washington grabs a prospect could be become their starter beyond this upcoming season.

47. Los Angeles Chargers- CB Tyson Campbell, Georgia

The Chargers focused on their offensive line needs in the previous round, but instead flip their attention to the defense in the second round. Campbell is praised by many as an early second round talent, and should be a valuable addition to Los Angeles’ defensive unit.

48. Las Vegas Raiders- OT Samuel Cosmi, Texas

Reports indicate that the Raiders will need to address their offensive line issues in the early stages of the 2021 Draft, and the addition of Cosmi is a step in the right direction. Cosmi has been ranked as a first round talent in certain mocks, but becomes a great value piece for Las Vegas.

49. Arizona Cardinals- EDGE Jayson Oweh, Penn State

The Cardinals have put together a successful offseason and managed to add Caleb Farley in the first round. The front office should continue to place their focus on the defensive side of the ball, as Oweh is clearly the top talent available to this point.

50. Miami Dolphins- EDGE Joseph Ossai, Texas

The Dolphins are on the clock for the fourth time across the first 50 picks and will continue to maintain a balanced strategy. Miami previously selected Rousseau in the first round, but Ossai is currently the best player available. The Dolphins will need to bulk up on the defensive end in order to endure competitive divisional opponents in the 2021 season.

51. TRADE ALERT: New England Patriots- WR Rondale Moore, Purdue

Washington Receives: 2021 Second-Round Pick (#46 overall)

New England Receives: 2021 Second-Round Pick (#51 overall), 2022 Third-Round Pick

Despite the heavy spending in free agency, New England still has a large void at the wide receiver position. Without Julian Edelman on the roster either, the idea of adding a prospect such as Moore should be exciting for Patriots fans.

52. Chicago Bears- QB Kellen Mond, Texas A&M

The Chicago Bears will not rely on Andy Dalton beyond the 2021 season, and Mond is their preferred prospect in the second round according to multiple reports. His draft stock has been rising steadily over the last several weeks, making him an ideal fit with the Bears.

53. Tennessee Titans- CB Elijah Molden, Washington

Without Desmond King and Adoree Jackson on the roster for the 2021 season, the Titans have an immediate need at the cornerback position. Molden fits what Tennessee has structured on the defensive and should be able to make an impact during his rookie season.

54. Indianapolis Colts- OT Dillon Radunz, North Dakota State

The Colts pride themselves on their offensive front, and will need to continue to build depth in order to protect Carson Wentz moving forward. Radunz is a case of the best player available who also happens to fill a primary need for Indianapolis.

55. Pittsburgh Steelers- C Quinn Meinerz, Wisconsin-Whitewater

The Steelers previously drafted offensive tackle Teven Jenkins in the first round, but will double-down on finding depth at the offensive front. The running back position continues to go unaddressed, but this draft class is deep enough for Pittsburgh to find a valuable prospect the later rounds.

56. TRADE ALERT: Green Bay Packers- WR Terrace Marshall Jr, LSU

Green Bay Receives: 2021 Second-Round Pick (#56 overall)

Seattle Receives: 2021 Second-Round Pick (#62 overall), 2021 Fifth-Round Pick, 2021 Sixth-Round Pick

The Packers will notice premier wide receivers continue to slip in the second round and will eventually pull the trigger to grab Marshall Jr. Despite his injury history, Marshall Jr was once considered a top-tier wide receiver in this current class. Green Bay adds an important weapon for Aaron Rodgers as the Packers continue to put together a productive offseason.

57. Los Angeles Rams- LB Nick Bolton, Missouri

After Cory Littleton joined the Las Vegas Raiders, the Rams have been in the market for a replacement at the linebacker position. Without a first-round pick, this becomes the first opportunity for the front office to find a game-changing prospect. Bolton is a player valued higher than the 57th overall pick and could make an immediate impact at the next level.

58. Kansas City Chiefs- EDGE Joe Tryon, Washington

Kansas City will own two of the final seven picks of the second round and will likely address their defensive needs with both selections. The need for a pass-rusher will be the primary objective, as Tryon continued to slip down the draft board. He becomes a case of the best player available and a steal for the Chiefs in the second round.

59. TRADE ALERT: Philadelphia Eagles- S Richie Grant, UCF

Philadelphia Receives: 2021 Second-Round Pick (#59 overall)

Cleveland Receives: 2021 Third-Round Pick (#70 overall), 2021 Sixth-Round Pick, 2022 Fourth-Round Pick 

The Philadelphia Eagles may find a way to trade back into the second round if the top safety prospects continue to fall down the draft board. Reports indicate that the Eagles have been drawn more to Richie Grant in comparison to Jevon Holland when weighing options among Day 2 safety prospects.

60. New Orleans Saints- WR Dyami Brown, North Carolina

Without Drew Brees, the Saints will need to tweak their offense to find success during the 2021 season. Brown is one of the top receivers available in Day 2 of the NFL Draft, and should provide New Orleans with a much-needed boost moving forward.

61. Buffalo Bills- EDGE Ronnie Perkins, Oklahoma

The Buffalo Bills are rumored to be in the market for a pass-rusher, and Perkins is the next-best talent behind Joseph Ossai and Joe Tryon. The lack of depth at the EDGE position is a concern, as it currently is centered around the idea of Jerry Hughes signing a potential extension.

62. TRADE ALERT: Seattle Seahawks- CB Ifeatu Melifonwu, Syracuse

Green Bay Receives: 2021 Second-Round Pick (#56 overall)

Seattle Receives: 2021 Second-Round Pick (#62 overall), 2021 Fifth-Round Pick, 2021 Sixth-Round Pick

After trading back in the second round, the Seahawks still have the opportunity to address their need at the cornerback position. Both Dunbar and Griffin departed in the offseason, leaving Seattle with an obvious selection at the late stage of the second round.

63. Kansas City Chiefs- CB Aaron Robinson, UCF

With their second selection in this individual round, the Chiefs will need to address their need at the cornerback position. Charvarius Ward sits on a contract year, and will be one of 50 players currently scheduled to become a free agent after this season for Kansas City.

64. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- QB Kyle Trask, Florida

The Buccaneers have been intrigued with Trask over the last few weeks and will eventually need to prepare for a post-Tom Brady era. Trask is one of the most underrated quarterback prospects and will be a steal at the final selection of the second round.
