Round Two | Picks 49-64
49. Arizona Cardinals: Creed Humphrey, OC, Oklahoma
Creed Humphrey is the best center in the class, and it allows the Cardinals to finally stop ignoring this position so that it will no longer be a problem.
50. Miami Dolphins: Alim McNeill, DT, North Carolina State
Alim McNeill deserves to go higher than this in my book, but right now, his draft stock doesn’t fit my personal feelings. He is a dancing bear, and getting him out of a true zero-technique look and into the gap should fit his game better. That will allow him to terrorize the backfield instead of the line of scrimmage.
51. Washington Football Team: Terrace Marshall Jr., WR, Louisiana State
Terrace Marshall Jr. is a height/weight/speed threat who brings an element to Washington that they don’t currently have. His mid-season opt-out might rub some the wrong way, but he showed he could produce outside the shadows of Ja’Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson.
52. Chicago Bears: Amari Rodgers, WR, Clemson
The Bears get a perfect fit for new QB Mac Jones. Amari Rodgers is a YAC monster built in the new mold of NFL wide receivers. He’s a running back in the open field and will be undervalued come April due to his usage at Clemson.
53. Tennessee Titans: Carlos Basham Jr., EDGE, Wake Forest
The Titans need all of the pass-rush help in this 2021 2-round NFL mock draft, which continues with another hybrid outside-to-inside edge rusher. Adding Carlos Basham to the rotation provides an immediate impact to complement Rousseau’s boom-or-bust potential.
54. Indianapolis Colts: Dillon Radunz, OT, North Carolina State
Dillon Radunz has outstanding movement skills and brings a backyard brawling attitude to the position. He still needs to progress technically, but he’s a solid option as a potential starting left tackle.
55. Pittsburgh Steelers: Michael Carter, RB, North Carolina
Michael Carter has outstanding feet, and he gives the Steelers a nice dump-down option as a receiver for Big Ben. His agility and body control allow him to make the first defender miss often.
56. Seattle Seahawks: Walker Little, OT, Stanford
We haven’t seen much of Walker Littler recently, but his latest tape was his best. After being a big-time recruit and seeing his name near the top of mock drafts forever, he still has a ways to go to be a starting tackle in the NFL. Nevertheless, the Seahawks need to address the offensive line at some point.
57. Los Angeles Rams: Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama
Dylan Moses has top-10 pick athleticism and some really spotty tape. Getting him at No. 57 as a high-upside WILL is great value despite the ugly reps in coverage. If he cleans things up, he can be one of the better linebackers in the league.
58. Baltimore Ravens: Josh Myers, OC, Ohio State
Getting some interior offensive line help was necessary in this 2021 2-round NFL mock draft. Josh Myers is a boring player. He’s not incredibly athletic nor is he incredibly powerful. He just gets the job done. Down in and down out, he blocks the man opposite him.
59. Cleveland Browns: Ronnie Perkins, EDGE, Oklahoma
Ronnie Perkins has all the explosiveness in the world to beat edges on the outside shoulder. However, he needs to be more consistent at bending that edge to further soften rush angles on the way to the QB. In an edge class devoid of that super high-end prospect, still having guys like Perkins around at this point is a welcome sight for pass rush needy teams.
60. New Orleans Saints: Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State
Tylan Wallace is and has been one of my favorite players in this class. His injury to end 2019 was unfortunate, as was the way his 2020 season ended. However, Wallace makes outrageous plays outside his frame.
61. Buffalo Bills: Aaron Robinson, CB, UCF
Aaron Robinson is a name that emerged from the shadows as folks started to get around to teammate Richie Grant’s tape. Robinson flashed as a do-it-all slot cornerback, and he has the pedigree of being a former Alabama recruit.
62. Green Bay Packers: Pete Werner, LB, Ohio State
Pete Werner is the type of linebacker the NFL is growing towards. He moves and covers very well, and has already played with NFL talent in Baron Browning. Furthermore, Werner adds a layer to the Packers’ defense they currently lack.
63. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jordan Smith, EDGE, Alabama Birmingham
Jordan Smith provides a rare combination of length, explosiveness, and bend that doesn’t exist in players his size very often.
64. Kansas City Chiefs: Deonte Brown, OG, Alabama
The massive guard struggled in Mobile, but Deonte Brown was never going to flourish in one-on-one situations. Get him with a left tackle and center surrounding him, and you’ll see the bullying blocker he was on tape at Alabama. The Chiefs just pick up the left side of the Crimson Tide’s offensive line and place it in Kansas City.
