Cummings’ 3-Round 2021 NFL Mock Draft

Cummings’ 3-Round 2021 NFL Mock Draft | Round 2, Picks 33-40

33) Jacksonville Jaguars
Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU

34) New York Jets
Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech

Once viewed as a potential top-10 pick, Caleb Farley’s injury concerns might ultimately relegate him to the second round. Ahead of Virginia Tech’s Pro Day, Farley needed surgery for a back injury, further complicating his outlook.

Nevertheless, if Farley’s healthy, he could legitimately be the best cornerback from this class. Farley has an enticing combination of closing burst and length, and he projects well as a versatile, scheme-diverse defensive back. In Round 2 of this 3-Round 2021 NFL Mock Draft, he’s a good gamble for Robert Saleh.

35) Atlanta Falcons
Javonte Williams, RB, North Carolina

36) Miami Dolphins
Baron Browning, LB, Ohio State

37) Philadelphia Eagles
Elijah Moore, WR, Ole Miss

38) Cincinnati Bengals
Pat Freiermuth, TE, Penn State

39) Carolina Panthers
Ifeatu Melifonwu, CB, Syracuse

40) Denver Broncos
Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson

Round 2 | Picks 41-48

41) Detroit Lions
Pete Werner, LB, Ohio State

Being a Michigan resident, I can attest that the Lions need a linebacker. In fact, the Lions seem to have a perpetual need for better linebacker play. Luckily, the No. 41 pick situates them well to add a high-upside linebacker, and Pete Werner is an underrated option.

Werner often flashed on tape at Ohio State, and at his pro day, he put up excellent athletic numbers at 6-foot-3, 238 pounds — among them a 4.62 40-yard dash, a 39.5-inch vertical, and a 122-inch broad jump. Werner can be more consistent in converting on his traits. Nevertheless, he clearly has a degree of instincts and toughness, and he should help the Lions bolster their second level.

42) New York Giants
Jayson Oweh, EDGE, Penn State

43) San Francisco 49ers
Kelvin Joseph, CB, Kentucky

44) Dallas Cowboys
Richie Grant, S, UCF

45) Jacksonville Jaguars
Alex Leatherwood, OT, Alabama

46) New England Patriots
Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, USC

47) Los Angeles Chargers
Trey Smith, OG, Tennessee

48) Las Vegas Raiders
Levi Onwuzurike, DT, Washington

Round 2 | Picks 49-56

49) Arizona Cardinals
Eric Stokes, CB, Georgia

I felt somewhat irresponsible picking a running back at No. 16 overall — even if the running back was Najee Harris. I hope Cardinals fans can forgive me after this pick.

Eric Stokes is an incredibly high-upside prospect at the cornerback position. Officially, he logged a 4.31 40-yard dash, a 38.5-inch vertical, and a 128-inch broad jump at his pro day, all at almost 6-foot-1, 194 pounds. Stokes is fast, physical, and lengthy, and he has all the traits necessary to help the Cardinals recoup talent at cornerback after losing Patrick Peterson.

50) Miami Dolphins
Carlos Basham Jr., DL, Wake Forest

51) Washington Football Team
Jabril Cox, LB, LSU

52) Chicago Bears
Kellen Mond, QB, Texas A&M

53) Tennessee Titans
Spencer Brown, OT, Northern Iowa

54) Indianapolis Colts
Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State

55) Pittsburgh Steelers
Landon Dickerson, C, Alabama

56) Seattle Seahawks
Alim McNeill, DT, North Carolina State

The Seahawks wanted Jarran Reed to restructure his contract but released him when he refused. The Seahawks need to reinvest in talent on the interior defensive line in this 3-Round 2021 NFL Mock Draft.

After pro days, one name who’s begun to rise is North Carolina State defensive tackle Alim McNeill. McNeill stands at 6-foot-2, 317 pounds, and he logged a 4.94 40-yard dash, a 30.5-inch vertical, and a 108-inch broad jump at his pro day. McNeill is athletic and explosive, but he’s also powerful, dense, and versatile on the interior.

Round 2 | Picks 57-64

57) Los Angeles Rams
Nick Bolton, LB, Missouri

58) Baltimore Ravens
Kadarius Toney, WR, Florida

59) Cleveland Browns
Ronnie Perkins, EDGE, Oklahoma

60) New Orleans Saints
Jay Tufele, DT, USC

61) Buffalo Bills
Aaron Robinson, CB, UCF

62) Green Bay Packers
Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama

63) Kansas City Chiefs
Quinn Meinerz, C, Wisconsin-Whitewater

64) Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Jordan Smith, EDGE, UAB
