In less than one week, 2021 NFL mock draft season will be over. Won’t you all miss it? The 2021 NFL Draft is merely days away, and rumors are swirling all over the place. The drama is about to unfold, and we only get a few more cracks at predicting what it will look like.

Although you’ve probably got a better chance of filling out a perfect bracket for the NCAA basketball tournament than you do getting even half of an NFL mock draft correct, we’re here for the volatility of it all.

Big things are going to go down in this year’s NFL Draft, which frankly is one of the hardest to predict in recent memory.

History could be made in the form of four quarterbacks coming off the board in the first four selections, and five in the top 10 overall. There might not be a defensive player off the board within the first nine picks.

This year’s wide receiver crop could be even better than last year’s impressive group.

At this point, there’s not going to be much drama with the top two picks, which everybody knows to be Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson. The word is out. The San Francisco 49ers moved up into the third overall spot presumably to take a quarterback and they’ve spent the month of April trying to figure out which guy that will be.

Even after the 49ers’ blockbuster trade and the moving around by the Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles, there are bound to be even more teams making bold moves to go and get players that can fill immediate needs and make an instant impact.

There could potentially be big-name veteran players on the move via trade like Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Orlando Brown Jr. and Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz.

All of the twists, turns, and surprises will be explored in this three-round NFL mock draft scenario.
