2021 NFL Draft Round 2, Pick 29

Eric Stokes. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. CB. Georgia. 61. player. 123

The secondary will likely stand out as a major position of need for the Cowboys next offseason. With this in mind, they find a cornerback in the second round of this mock draft, bringing in Eric Stokes out of Georgia.

Stokes is a long and physical cornerback who shines in press coverage. He is relentless at the line of scrimmage, shows the necessary speed to recover if needed and attacks the ball in the air well. He feels like a strong fit for a team that typically likes to attack wide receivers at the line with press coverage.

Pick Analysis. EDGE. Joseph Ossai. Scouting Report. Texas. 62. player. 26

Joseph Ossai is an extremely raw talent, but his combination of size and athleticism makes him an enticing prospect. He shows flashes of dominant pass-rush ability, but he was far too inconsistent last season. With a strong 2020 season, Ossai could quickly fly up 2021 NFL Draft boards.

CB. 15. Pick Analysis. LSU. Kary Vincent Jr.. 63. player. Scouting Report

Even though it never happens, it is always fun to try and pair LSU prospects with the Saints. Kary Vincent Jr. heading to New Orleans is one that would certainly make plenty of sense. Vincent is a ridiculously quick cornerback prospect who also shows incredible natural ball skills. The Saints could use some impact cornerback depth and Vincent is arguably the best player at the position currently available.

2021 NFL Draft Round 2, Pick 32

124. Scouting Report. South Carolina. player. Pick Analysis. CB. Isreal Mukuamu. 64

While they have done a nice job of getting by with what they have, the Chiefs have struggled at the cornerback position in recent years. Here, they bring in Isreal Mukuamu, an extremely long and physical cornerback prospect to help with their secondary issues.

Mukuamu uses his length well in coverage, consistently suffocating opposing receivers at the line of scrimmage. He shows solid instincts in coverage and is also a tremendous run defender at the position.
