Check out The Game Day’s NFL Draft expert predicting each pick from Round 1, Round 2, and Round 3 of the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft. Here’s his full report on 2021 NFL Draft Round 2 pick predictions.
The first few waves of 2021 NFL free agency are over, and the 2021 NFL Draft is just a few weeks away. Team needs and potential landing spots for the nation’s top players are starting to take form. We are looking a three-round mock draft after the first week of free agency. So without further ado, let’s get into the picks!
2021 NFL Round 2 Mock Draft
33. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS
Asante Samuel Jr., CB, Florida State
Urban Meyer stays in-state and grabs arguably the best slot cornerback in the draft. Samuel should be a star in nickel packages right away.
34. NEW YORK JETS
Najee Harris, RB, Alabama
The Jets need a workhorse back, and Harris fits the mold. He might be the best back in the class and a steal at No. 34.
35. ATLANTA FALCONS
Jayson Oweh, EDGE, Penn State
Oweh had zero sacks in 2020, but he is an athletic marvel who could be a high-end starter in time.
36. MIAMI DOLPHINS (from Texans)
Creed Humphrey, C, Oklahoma
Miami signed Matt Skura in free agency, but the ‘Phins continue to invest in their offensive line with the best center in this class in Humphrey.
37. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES
Nick Bolton, LB, Missouri
Bolton is a physical, tough linebacker who can stay on the field on all three downs. He would be a Day 1 starter for a defense that needs to be rebuilt.
38. CINCINNATI BENGALS
Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue
Cincinnati needs to add speed to their offense and Moore can do just that. He can play in the slot and on the outside and would be a perfect fit with Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.
39. NEW — CAROLINA PANTHERS
Alex Leatherwood, OT, Alabama
After picking their franchise quarterback, Justin Fields, earlier in this mock, the Panthers give him help on the offensive line. Leatherwood is a great athlete with experience at both guard and tackle. His best fit is likely at right tackle in the NFL, but he has Pro Bowl potential at guard.
40. NEW — DENVER BRONCOS
Javonte Williams, RB, North Carolina
The Broncos let Phillip Lindsay walk in free agency, and Melvin Gordon has just one year left on his contract. Williams projects as a workhorse running back and could easily be a high-end starter by 2022. For a team without many holes, this just makes too much sense.
41. DETROIT LIONS
Carlos Basham Jr., EDGE, Wake Forest
Bashman can play multiple positions on the defensive line and is as tough as they get. He and Trey Flowers would pair well together given their position flexibility.
42. NEW YORK GIANTS
Eric Stokes, CB, Georgia
Stokes is a highly athletic cornerback who had four interceptions in 2020. He projects a high-end No. 2 cornerback in the NFL and would fit well with James Bradberry.
43. SAN FRANCISCO 49ers
Kadarius Toney, WR, Florida
Kyle Shanahan loves receivers who can make plays after the catch and that is exactly where Toney thrives.
44. DALLAS COWBOYS
Richie Grant, FS, Central Florida
Dallas has ignored the safety position for years, but they finally upgrade here with the best free safety in the class in Richie Grant.
45. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (from Vikings)
Wyatt Davis, OG, Ohio State
Meyer goes with his first Ohio State player, drafting Davis to plug in at guard.
46. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan
New England improved their offensive line greatly this offseason, but they could always use depth. Mayfield is only 20-years old, but projects as a high-end starter at guard or at right tackle.
47. LOS ANGELES CHARGERS
Joseph Ossai, EDGE, Texas
After likely losing Melvin Ingram in free agency, the Chargers need to find help opposite Joey Bosa. Ossai is an athletic, effort-player who wins with his motor.
48. LAS VEGAS RAIDERS
Kelvin Joseph, CB, Kentucky
If it weren’t for some off-the-field issues, Joesph might be a first-round pick. But he falls to the Raiders at No. 49 and Jon Gruden just can’t say no. Joseph would compete with Damon Arnette for one of the starting jobs as a rookie in Las Vegas.
49. ARIZONA CARDINALS
Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State
Arizona needs to improve their defense, but they also have to do a better job of protecting Kyler Murray. Radunz dominated the Senior Bowl and has the athleticism to thrive in Kliff Kingsbury‘s offense.
50. MIAMI DOLPHINS
Jabril Cox, LB, LSU
Kyle Van Noy is gone, and Miami needs linebacker help. Cox is a North Dakota State transfer who does his best work in coverage.
51. WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM
Jackson Carman, OT, Clemson
Carman might be an offensive guard in the NFL, but he has a ton of experience at offensive tackle at Clemson. At the very worst, he’s the team’s swing tackle as a rookie and likely develops into a starter by Year 2.
52. CHICAGO BEARS
Ifeatu Melifonwu, CB, Syracuse
After releasing Kyle Fuller, the Bears have to add cornerback help this offseason. Melifonwu is an athletic marvel who is a much better player than his brother Obi. Melifonwu should be a starting cornerback early in his career.
53. TENNESSEE TITANS
Aaron Robinson, CB, Central Florida
Both Adoree Jackson and Malcolm Butler are gone, leaving the Titans vulnerable in the secondary. Robinson is a physical, aggressive cornerback who has position flexibility as he can play on the outside or the slot.

54. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS
Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia
Xavier Rhodes is back in Indianapolis, but only on a one-year deal. Campbell has a lot of the same traits as Rhodes and should be a strong fit in Matt Eberflus‘ defense.
55. PITTSBURGH STEELERS
Walker Little, OT, Stanford
If it weren’t for injuries, Little might have been a top-20 pick in this year’s draft. Instead, he falls to No. 56 where the Steelers can develop him to be their future left tackle.
56. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS
Joe Tryon, EDGE, Washington
The Seahawks stay in state and grab Tyron, who is only scratching the surface of his potential. He might need a year or two to develop before he is a starter, but the tools are there for him to become a valuable EDGE rusher.
57. LOS ANGELES RAMS
Jamin Davis, LB, Kentucky
Linebacker was a problem last year for the Rams and Davis can solve that using his speed and quickness. He’s not the most polished linebacker, but he does have the athleticism to start right away in the NFL.
58. BALTIMORE RAVENS
Terrace Marshall Jr., WR, LSU
After ignoring wide receiver in Round 1, the Ravens stay patient and grab Marshall. He’s a big-bodied receiver who does his best work from the slot. Marshall is a bit raw but has the tools to be a solid starter in the NFL.
59. CLEVELAND BROWNS
Dyami Brown, WR, North Carolina
Cleveland needs to interject some speed in their offense and Brown certainly has it. He averaged 18.7 yards per reception during his career at North Carolina and would fit well with Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry.
60. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS
Tutu Atwell, WR, Louisville
Sean Payton loves having speed on offense and no player in this class has more of it than Atwell. He can be used in several different ways and is the perfect player to use on screens, handoffs, jet-sweeps, etc.
61. BUFFALO BILLS
Tommy Tremble, TE, Notre Dame
Tremble isn’t the consensus No. 2 tight end prospect (behind Kyle Pitts) in this class, but he is gaining momentum. He’s a highly athletic blocking tight end who can be used inline, as an H-back or as a fullback. Tremble is one of the youngest players in this class and does have some George Kittle-like qualities. Don’t be surprised if he goes much earlier than this in the actual draft in April.
62. GREEN BAY PACKERS
Levi Onwuzurike, DT, Washington
Green Bay continues to load up on the defensive line, adding Onwuzurike. He can play multiple positions, but his best football comes when he is used as a pass-rusher.
63. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS
Landon Dickerson, C, Alabama
Kansas City has already taken steps to improve their offensive line, but the rebuild continues in the draft. Dickerson has an extensive injury history, but has first-round talent. He might need to use the 2021 season to rehab, but he could be the team’s starting center in 2022.
64. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS
Pat Freiermuth, TE, Penn State
Tampa Bay doesn’t have many holes on their roster, so they add a tight end to eventually replace Rob Gronkowski and O.J. Howard, who are both in the final year of their contracts. Freiermuth could be a Hunter Henry level receiver in the NFL as he is an easy mover and has soft hands.
