2021 NFL mock draft: Round 1, 21st overall

1
Azeez Ojulari
EDGE Georgia

Quarterback stands out as the biggest need on this roster but taking any quarterback remaining on the board here would be a reach. Instead, the Colts attack a need on the defensive side of the ball, adding Georgia edge defender Azeez Ojulari with their first pick of this 2021 NFL mock draft.

Ojulari is a long and athletic edge defender who is quick off of the ball, gets extremely low with his bend around the edge and closes on the quarterback in an instant. He is an impact speed rusher who shows exciting upside as a pass rusher next level. He is also a tough and long defender who sets a good edge and attacks well against the run.

Ojulari stands out as one of the premier players remaining on the board here and would fill a position of need for the Indianapolis Colts. He could come in and make an immediate impact for the team while also providing a ton of long-term upside at an important defensive position.

Tyson Campbell
CB Georgia

The Colts already found strong value with the addition of a Georgia defender in the first round and look to do the same in the second round of this 2021 NFL mock draft. Tyson Campbell is a long and athletic cornerback prospect who shines in press coverage at the line of scrimmage. He shows solid movement skills in space, displaying the ability to change directions quickly. However, his deep speed is lacking and that is obviously less than ideal.

That being said, Campbell attacks the ball in the air extremely well and shows great physicality in coverage. He is a strong press-man defender who also shows impressive natural instincts in zone coverage. The Colts could certainly use some impact talent at the cornerback position and they find it with the selection of Campbell in the second round.
