The 2021 NFL Draft is a year away, but that doesn’t mean we can’t try to look in the crystal ball and see what teams will try to tank for Trevor Lawrence.
The 2020 NFL Draft is only a week old, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take a look at the best prospects available in the 2021 NFL Draft class.
As a matter of fact, people have been looking forward to the 2021 NFL Draft for quite some time now. When Trevor Lawrence was coming out of high school as a superstar prep prospect, scouts and pundits were already counting down the days until he was eligible to go pro.
After watching him play as a true freshman, there were opinions flying all over Twitter that Lawrence was unquestionably the best pro prospect at the quarterback position anyone had seen since Andrew Luck and that he could have easily gone pro before the age of 20.
Lawrence will turn 21 in October, but who knows if we’ll get the chance to see him — or anyone else on this list — play football for their respective programs in 2020. It’s far too early to make any definitive statements about the college football season, but the major question marks with the coronavirus could actually end up causing some elite prospects to enter the NFL’s supplemental draft.
Let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves, though.
Let’s say, for the moment, that the college football season happens and none of these prospects leave early for the supplemental draft.
Who are the top prospects to keep an eye on for the 2021 class?
Doing a mock draft one year out might seem like a fruitless endeavor, but there’s nothing wrong with taking an early look at top prospects or assessing a team’s potential needs for the future.
We blame the NFL Mock Draft Database simulator for your team picking way too high. Unless you’re a Jacksonville Jaguars fan because clearly the tank is on in Duval.
