Predicting the 2021 NFL Draft with a three-round NFL mock draft.

We already know the 2021 NFL Draft order for the first 24 spots and after the Divisional Round games this weekend, we will be able to cement the order for four more teams. In this 2021 NFL mock draft, we are going to go three rounds deep, ensuring that we make at least one pick for each and every NFL team. Yes, even Texans’ fans get to see a mock selection for their team in this post.

Without further ado, let’s get things started with the Jacksonville Jaguars at No. 1 overall. No surprise here as Jacksonville looks to build their franchise around one of the best quarterback prospects in recent memory.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are locked into the first pick and Trevor Lawrence has declared for the 2021 NFL Draft, making this the obvious choice. Just because it is obvious, does not make it wrong. You can write this one in stone right now.

Lawrence is an elite quarterback prospect who gives the Jaguars a legitimate franchise player to build their team around. They will have a new general manager, a new head coach, and a ton of cap space and 2021 NFL Draft capital to add new talent. Make no mistake about it, this Jaguars’ team is going to look much different going forward and it will all be built around Trevor Lawrence.

Lawrence has all of the physical tools needed to be a star at the next level. He has elite level arm talent, showing the ability to hit any throw on the field with accuracy and work with unique arm angles when needed. Lawrence is also an incredible athlete at the quarterback position, quickly escaping from the pocket and making plays with his legs when needed.

Simply put, Trevor Lawrence is the best prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft class and the Jaguars need a franchise quarterback in the worst way. Lock this one in right now no matter what happens before April.
