2021 NFL Draft Round 2, Pick 4

Scouting Report. WR. Wake Forest. Sage Surratt. 36. player. Pick Analysis. 31

Sage Surratt is a big and physical wide receiver prospect who works through traffic extremely well. This guy does not seem to be phased by contact, consistently keeping his feet both in his routes and after the catch.

Surratt shows impressive ability as a route runner and can create with the ball in his hands, but this guy really shines when the ball is in the air. Surratt tracks the ball in the air extremely well and shows tremendous natural ball skills. He is physical at the catch point and shows elite-level concentration when the ball is in the air. Basically, this guy comes down with everything.

The New York Giants could certainly use another weapon in the passing game and having Surratt around would undoubtedly help the growth of quarterback Daniel Jones. After snagging an impact defender in the first, the Giants find themselves a dynamic offensive playmaker here in the second round.

2021 NFL Draft Round 2, Pick 5

13. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Stanford. player. CB. Paulson Adebo. 37

Paulson Adebo is an excellent zone coverage cornerback. He shows fantastic natural instincts in coverage and impressive overall ball skills. Adebo has a chance to be an extremely productive NFL player, but his NFL team must understand not to ask too much out of him in man coverage. The Los Angeles Chargers could use some quality depth at the cornerback position and could strike gold with Adebo if they use him right.

2021 NFL Draft Round 2, Pick 6

Pick Analysis. Iowa State. player. 57. Scouting Report. QB. Brock Purdy. 38

The quarterback class in the 2021 NFL Draft is a bit odd. The three guys at the top are extremely impressive and could lead the next generation of players at the position. However, there is not too much to get excited about at the position behind Lawrence, Fields and Lance.

That being said, Iowa State quarterback Brock Purdy stands out as a player who can make a significant impact in the right situation. We all know about the Bears’ issues at the quarterback position and they will likely be looking for a situation like this to add a potential long-term option at the position.

Purdy is not the most athletically gifted quarterback prospect, but he is a smart and accurate passer who consistently gets the job done as a passer in the middle of the field. His arm talent is not exactly elite, but Purdy can make most throws on the field and can fit the ball into tight spaces with velocity when needed. Purdy also shows impressive improvising skills, which is a major plus in the modern NFL.
