Cummings’ 3-Round 2021 NFL Mock Draft

Cummings’ 3-Round 2021 NFL Mock Draft | Round 3, Picks 65-74

65) Jacksonville Jaguars
Bobby Brown, DT, Texas A&M

Pro day results are bound to push some prospects up the draft board, and another riser on the interior line is Texas A&M defensive lineman Bobby Brown. Brown flashes a lot on tape, and at his pro day, his athletic traits were validated. At 6-foot-4, 321 pounds, Brown logged a 1.68 10-yard split, a 33-inch vertical, and a 113-inch broad jump.

With his size and athleticism, Brown projects well onto Jacksonville’s line, which should be fairly versatile under defensive coordinator Joe Cullen. Brown can shade inside to one-technique but also offers a lot of upside as an even-front defensive tackle.

66) New York Jets
Michael Carter, RB, North Carolina

67) Houston Texans
Wyatt Davis, OG, Ohio State

68) Atlanta Falcons
Asante Samuel Jr., CB, Florida State

69) Cincinnati Bengals
Tommy Togiai, DT, Ohio State

70) Philadelphia Eagles
Daviyon Nixon, DT, Iowa

71) Denver Broncos
Joe Tryon, EDGE, Washington

72) Detroit Lions
Dyami Brown, WR, North Carolina

The new Detroit regime seems to favor speed at the wide receiver position, so Dyami Brown makes a lot of sense in Round 3. Brown is a tremendous downfield threat, with an almost flawless analytical profile. He logged a 4.46 40-yard dash time and a 128-inch broad jump at his pro day, and he looks just as explosive on tape. Brown’s hands are a bit of a concern, but with his release sets and body control, he offers a dynamic skill set for a receiver room that needs more game-changing ability.

73) Carolina Panthers
Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue

74) Washington Football Team
Davis Mills, QB, Stanford

Round 3 | Picks 75-84

75) Dallas Cowboys
Payton Turner, EDGE, Houston

76) New York Giants
Josh Myers, C, Ohio State

77) Los Angeles Chargers
Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia

78) Minnesota Vikings
Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame

The Vikings have two solid starters on the offensive line in Garrett Bradbury and Brian O’Neill. Still, they can stand to improve the rest of the blocking unit, or at the very least, acquire more flexibility with the players they have.

One way to do that is to add a competent starting left tackle. That’s what Liam Eichenberg is. He’s large and long and also technically sound. Additionally, he tested better than expected at his pro day, with a 105-inch broad jump and near-elite agility numbers. With Eichenberg, the Vikings could slide Ezra Cleveland to guard and mix around their starters as they see fit.

79) Las Vegas Raiders
Elijah Molden, CB, Washington

80) Las Vegas Raiders
Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State

81) Miami Dolphins
Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan

82) Washington Football Team
Tommy Tremble, TE, Notre Dame

The Washington Football Team has a starting tight end for the foreseeable future in Logan Thomas. However, they need a competent No. 2 tight end across from him. In this 3-Round 2021 NFL Mock Draft, they select Notre Dame’s Tommy Tremble to fill that gap. Tremble is somewhat unproven as a receiver, but he shows serious flashes. He also has the necessary athleticism to translate there.

At his pro day, he logged a 4.65 40-yard dash, a 36.5-inch vertical, and a 122-inch broad jump at 6-foot-3, 241 pounds. Tremble is an elite run blocker on top of his athletic profile, and he’d provide utility right out of the gate for Washington, clearing lanes and making clutch plays.

83) Chicago Bears
Trill Williams, CB, Syracuse

84) Philadelphia Eagles
Cameron McGrone, LB, Michigan

Round 3 | Picks 85-94

85) Tennessee Titans
Amari Rodgers, WR, Clemson

86) New York Jets
Jevon Holland, S/CB, Oregon

87) Pittsburgh Steelers
Hunter Long, TE, Boston College

88) Los Angeles Rams
Brady Christensen, OT, BYU

89) Cleveland Browns
Hamsah Nasirildeen, S/LB, Florida State

90) Minnesota Vikings
Rashad Weaver, EDGE, Pittsburgh

91) Cleveland Browns
Milton Williams, DT, Louisiana Tech

Put these pro day numbers on for size. At 6-foot-3, 284 pounds, Milton Williams registered a 4.67 40-yard dash, a 38.5-inch vertical, a 121-inch broad jump, 34 bench reps, and a 6.96 three-cone time.

He also has the production to match, with 10 sacks and 19 tackles for loss over the past two seasons. The Browns need more raw talent on their interior line, and while Williams has room for refinement, few defensive linemen bring the potential that he does.

92) Green Bay Packers
Keith Taylor, CB, Washington

93) Buffalo Bills
Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami

94) Kansas City Chiefs
Nico Collins, WR, Michigan

Round 3 | Picks 95-105

95) Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Kenneth Gainwell, RB, Memphis

96) New England Patriots
Benjamin St-Juste, CB, Minnesota

97) Los Angeles Chargers
Patrick Jones, EDGE, Pittsburgh

98) New Orleans Saints
D’Wayne Eskridge, WR, Western Michigan

99) Dallas Cowboys
Osa Odighizuwa, DT, UCLA

100) Tennessee Titans
Kenny Yeboah, TE, Ole Miss

101) Detroit Lions
Tyree Gillespie, S, Missouri

102) San Francisco 49ers
Kendrick Green, OG, Illinois

103) Los Angeles Rams
Ar’Darius Washington, S, TCU

He won’t be a traditional replacement for John Johnson and Troy Hill, but Ar’Darius Washington has the explosiveness, aggressiveness, and versatility to provide some value here.

Washington’s 40-time, especially at his size, may drop him out of Round 3. However, with a 37.5-inch vertical and a 127-inch broad jump, Washington has the requisite burst for a safety, and his playstyle is fast and instinctive. For a late-third-round pick, his multifaceted upside serves a purpose for the Rams, who need to reinvest in their secondary.

104) Baltimore Ravens
Walker Little, OT, Stanford

105) New Orleans Saints
Robert Rochell, CB, Central Arkansas
