2021 NFL Mock Draft: Washington trades into top 10 for Justin Fields in Pete Prisco’s final mock draft

Clemson

Jacksonville

1st

POSITION RNK

1st

The franchise is relevant now. They have their generational quarterback, a guy who will make them have sustainable success for the next decade. A Super Bowl is coming in the next 10 years.

BYU

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 210 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

4th

POSITION RNK

2nd

The Jets have seemingly been locked in on Wilson for a while. He has a big arm and can fit their offense with his ability to move. But he is small, which has to be a concern.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 214 lbs

Even though I can’t quite understand it, I am putting Mac Jones in this spot. It’s way too much to give up for him, but it just seems like a Kyle Shanahan move.

Florida

• Jr

• 6’6″

/ 240 lbs

Projected Team

Atlanta

PROSPECT RNK

3rd

POSITION RNK

1st

The word is they will pass on a quarterback to take the best non-quarterback in the draft. Pitts will give Matt Ryan another impressive outside target.

Oregon

• Jr

• 6’6″

/ 330 lbs

Projected Team

Cincinnati

PROSPECT RNK

2nd

POSITION RNK

1st

Receiver or tackle? Tackle or receiver? In a deep-receiver class, it makes sense to take the top tackle on most boards. They can get a receiver (or receivers) later.

LSU

• 6’0″

/ 208 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

6th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Dolphins have to build around Tua Tagovailoa, which is why I have them taking Chase. He is the best receiver in the class.

Alabama

• Jr

• 5’10”

/ 182 lbs

Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

7th

POSITION RNK

2nd

They could go for a big guy here, but I think Waddle makes sense in a receiver room that lacks a true No. 1. I don’t think they take a quarterback.

Northwestern

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 305 lbs

Projected Team

Carolina

PROSPECT RNK

11th

POSITION RNK

2nd

They have to get a left tackle to protect the backside. Slater would be an immediate starter and they will play with Sam Darnold for this year.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 228 lbs

Projected Team

Washington

PROSPECT RNK

5th

POSITION RNK

3rd

They make the bold move to go up and get the player I think is the second-best quarterback in the draft. He can spend time learning from Ryan Fitzpatrick — and then take over.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 203 lbs

Projected Team

Dallas

PROSPECT RNK

15th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Surtain is the best corner in the draft, and he would fill a major need. It just fits for the Cowboys.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 175 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

10th

POSITION RNK

3rd

They have to get a home-run threat for the offense. They would consider edge rushers and offensive lineman here. This will go against the Dave Gettleman history of drafting big people, but maybe it’s time for that.

South Carolina

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

27th

POSITION RNK

4th

The Eagles can pair him with Darius Slay and then keep Avonte Maddox at nickel. They could also opt for an edge player here.

Virginia Tech

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 314 lbs

This would be an outstanding pick for the Chargers. Darrisaw is a natural left tackle who will solidify a major position of need.

USC

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 315 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

19th

POSITION RNK

4th

They need to get a quality starter at left tackle, which is why Vera-Tucker makes sense. He moved there from guard last year and did a nice job.

North Dakota State

• Soph

• 6’4″

/ 226 lbs

Projected Team

New England

PROSPECT RNK

9th

POSITION RNK

4th

The Patriots stay put in this mock and end up with a quarterback for the future. Lance could sit behind Cam Newton for a year and then take over.

Tulsa

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 260 lbs

Projected Team

Arizona

PROSPECT RNK

30th

POSITION RNK

3rd

They can take him and pair him with Isaiah Simmons for a heck of a tandem going forward. Jordan Hicks would be in the mix as well. Collins can also rush off the edge.

Penn State

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 244 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

8th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Raiders can use defensive help on all levels. TCU safety Trevon Moehrig is a possibility here, but I think they would settle on Parsons.

Georgia

• Soph

• 6’3″

/ 240 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

18th

POSITION RNK

2nd

They have to improve their pass-rush situation and Ojulari can do that. He is an explosive player who plays hard all the time, which you know Brian Flores loves.

Kentucky

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 234 lbs

Projected Team

Denver

PROSPECT RNK

43rd

POSITION RNK

4th

They trade down, add some picks, and still land a player I think is the best linebacker in this class. Davis will be a star.

Oklahoma State

• Sr

• 6’6″

/ 320 lbs

Projected Team

Chicago

PROSPECT RNK

23rd

POSITION RNK

5th

They need help up front and Jenkins will bring a mean streak to playing right tackle. They could also inquire about moving up to get a quarterback.

Michigan

• Sr

• 6’4″

/ 272 lbs

Projected Team

Indianapolis

PROSPECT RNK

13th

POSITION RNK

1st

They have to get some pass-rush help and Paye has the physical tools to be a productive player. He might just be scratching the surface of what he can become. He fits.

Virginia Tech

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 207 lbs

Projected Team

Tennessee

PROSPECT RNK

12th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Titans need corner help, which is why this makes sense. Farley does have some injury issues, which is why he’s down here this low. He’s a top-10 talent.

Notre Dame

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 215 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

16th

POSITION RNK

2nd

We know how Robert Saleh loves speed in his linebackers. This kid can fly and he will be a lot like those 49ers linebackers who can fly.

Alabama

• Sr

• 6’2″

/ 230 lbs

Projected Team

Pittsburgh

PROSPECT RNK

34th

POSITION RNK

1st

Would I do this? No way. But the Steelers want to amp up their running game and Harris would seem to be a guy who fits what they want to do.

Alabama

• Soph

• 6’5″

/ 310 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

26th

POSITION RNK

1st

They need more players on the defensive line. They would be tempted by deep speed at receiver here, but Barmore is a better pick with a deep WR class.

Miami (FL)

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 266 lbs

Projected Team

Cleveland

PROSPECT RNK

21st

POSITION RNK

3rd

They have Jadeveon Clowney and Takk McKinley on one-year deals. They need to get a young edge player to go with Myles Garrett. Phillips has the talent to become a good one.

TCU

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 208 lbs

Projected Team

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

17th

POSITION RNK

1st

They need a playmaker on the back end, a guy who can get them picks and still be good in the run game. As the best safety in the class, Moehrig is that guy.

Northwestern

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 190 lbs

Projected Team

New Orleans

PROSPECT RNK

31st

POSITION RNK

5th

They have to get a corner to go with Marshon Lattimore. In a division with Tom Brady throwing to his skilled receivers, you need cover players.

Florida State

• Jr

• 5’10”

/ 184 lbs

Projected Team

Green Bay

PROSPECT RNK

24th

POSITION RNK

3rd

They brought Kevin King back on a one-year deal, but they need more help. Samuel would be a nice nickel right away and eventually can move outside.

Penn State

• Soph

• 6’5″

/ 253 lbs

Projected Team

Buffalo

PROSPECT RNK

35th

POSITION RNK

5th

They will definitely consider corner here, but to beat the Chiefs you have to be able to pressure off the edge. Oweh is raw, but he has talent.

Miami (FL)

• Soph

• 6’7″

/ 265 lbs

Projected Team

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

59th

POSITION RNK

8th

They could trade this pick, but they need pass-rush help so I have them taking Rousseau. He opted out last year, which hurt his stock some, but he has the physical makeup to be a good edge player.

Clemson

• Sr

• 5’10”

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Tampa Bay

PROSPECT RNK

37th

POSITION RNK

2nd

They lack one big thing on their offense: A playmaking running back with elite speed. Etienne can add the Alvin Kamara element to their offense.
