The 2021 NFL Draft is less than three weeks away, which means that 2021 NFL Mock Draft season is nearly complete.

For the time being, we get to have fun with hypothetical scenarios. What teams are going to be aggressive? Which teams are going to jump into the fray for quarterbacks in this particular class?

There are a number of trades that could happen and a couple that we will explore in this 2021 NFL mock draft scenario. The primary positions in focus for trade, as usual, will be at the quarterback position, but teams could get aggressive for offensive tackles or cornerbacks in this class as well.

Less than three weeks out, the rumor mill is churning, and although it’s hard to know at this point which rumors to buy and which ones to dismiss, there are plenty of intriguing scenarios to consider.

Let’s take a look at how the top three rounds of the 2021 NFL Draft could go in a couple of weeks on this Mock Draft Monday.

2021 NFL Mock Draft: 1st pick

There shouldn’t be too many theatrics with the Jacksonville Jaguars and the top pick in the 2021 draft.

Trevor Lawrence has been the presumptive number one overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft basically since he came out of high school a few years back. He did nothing at Clemson to change that trajectory.

Lawrence is arguably the “prototype” at the quarterback position when it comes to his physical makeup, arm talent, accuracy, decision-making, athleticism, and gym rat approach to the game.

There are some aspects where Lawrence is Manning-like, but he’s still got plenty of room for growth. For the Jacksonville Jaguars and new head coach Urban Meyer, that’s a great thing.

Lawrence is a slam-dunk pick here and could help propel the Jaguars back into contention sooner rather than later.
