2021 NFL Draft Round 2, Pick 7

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Chris Olave. 39. 30. WR. Ohio State. player

The New York Jets filled a couple of defensive needs in the first round of this 2021 NFL Draft scenario and here, they turn to their biggest need on the offensive side of the ball. The addition of wide receiver Denzel Mims will undoubtedly help Sam Darnold and this team, but they still lack ideal talent and depth at the wide receiver position.

Chris Olave is a quick and explosive outside receiver who is a threat to take it to the house from anywhere on the field. He is a strong deep threat who tracks the ball in the air extremely well and shows strong playmaking skills with the ball in his hands. Olave is a dynamic offensive weapon who would certainly make sense for New York.

2021 NFL Draft Round 2, Pick 8

S. 59. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Andre Cisco. 40. player. Syracuse

The Miami Dolphins have done a great job of adding impact talent to their secondary in recent years, but they do seem to be lacking a long-term option at the deep safety position. Head coach Brian Flores is going to want to play with a deep middle safety a lot of the time and Andre Cisco is a guy who can come in and fill that role.

Cisco is a rangy safety prospect who has great instincts in coverage and attacks the ball in the air extremely well. He is a fantastic playmaker on the back-end who would fit the Dolphins’ defense well and should be able to fill their only real hole in the secondary.

2021 NFL Draft Round 2, Pick 9

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. OT. Minnesota. player. Daniel Faalele. 41. 56

It is baffling to me that the Cincinnati Bengals are still starting Bobby Hart at the right tackle position. He is clearly not a dependable option at the position, why won’t they just find a young guy with some promise and give him a shot?

Right tackle stands out as a massive need for this team and they address that need with the selection of Daniel Faalele out of Minnesota. Faalele is a 6-foot-9, 400-pound offensive lineman who moves well for his massive size. Players of this kind of size do not come around often (ever?) and Faalele knows how to use it well.

He is still an extremely raw talent, but Faalele has massive upside at the next level. Adding him to the mix gives the Bengals a much-needed upgrade at the right tackle position and would immediately raise the upside of their entire offensive line.
