Marcus Mosher lays out his 2021 NFL Mock Draft for the first three rounds, and you’re reading his 2021 NFL Round 2 Mock Draft. 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
Alex Leatherwood, OT, Alabama
After selecting Ja’Marr Chase at No. 5 overall, the Bengals have to go offensive line in Round 2. Alex Leatherwood would be a fantastic pick as he has experience at both guard and tackle. He could start right away at guard but, eventually, move over to right tackle in 2022.
39. CAROLINA PANTHERS
Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue
The Panthers lost some speed on offense this offseason as Curtis Samuel signed with the Washington Football Team. Moore would help fill that need for speed and can make plays from both the slot and out of the backfield.
40. 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
Kadarius Toney, WR, Florida
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
Carlos Basham, EDGE, Wake Forest
The Giants could easily go pass-rusher in Round 1, but instead, they wait until Round 2 to grab Basham. One of the most productive defensive ends over the last two years in college football, Basham can play multiple positions and is solid against the run.
Joe Judge will love his versatility and fit on the defensive line next to Leonard Williams and Dexter Lawrence.
43. SAN FRANCISCO 49ers
Eric Stokes, CB, Georgia
The 49ers don’t have a lot of depth at cornerback entering the year and decide to add Stokes here at pick No. 43. Stokes has world-class speed and can play both on the outside and in the slot. For a defense that needs more help in the secondary, Stokes would be an outstanding value here.
44. DALLAS COWBOYS
Jevon Holland, S, Oregon
Despite picking a cornerback at No. 10, the Cowboys continue to add to their defense in the second round. This time, it’s with a safety in Jevon Holland, who opted out of the 2020 season. He didn’t line up a ton as a free safety in college, but he has the height-weight-speed combo to be a star at that position in the NFL.
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
Richie Grant, S, Central Florida
The Raiders need a free safety, and Richie Grant might be the best in the class. He is a little undersized, but he has ball skills and instincts. He would be a perfect center fielder in Gus Bradley‘s defense and would be a steal at pick No. 48.
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. NEW — KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (from Baltimore Ravens)
Terrace Marshall Jr., WR, LSU
After addressing the offensive line via the Orlando Brown trade with Baltimore, Kansas City can now add a big-bodied receiver to help replace Sammy Watkins. Marshall can play outside and in the slot, but his best work happens in the middle of the field.
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 — maybe even a surprise Round 1 pick for Tremble.
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.
