Schulte’s 3-round 2021 NFL Mock Draft | Round 3
65) Jacksonville Jaguars: Hamilcar Rashed Jr., EDGE, Oregon State
66) Washington Redskins: Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami (FL)
Washington is going all-in on offense in this draft, snatching up a falling Brevin Jordan. Given that Washington is currently starting Logan Thomas at tight end, this position might be a wise investment this offseason. Jordan is a mismatch weapon waiting to happen. The team continues to build around Dwayne Haskins to put him in the best situation possible before making a decision about his future.
67) Cincinnati Bengals: Deonte Brown, OG, Alabama
68) Carolina Panthers: Tyler Vrabel, OT, Boston College
69) Miami Dolphins: Rasheed Walker, OT, Penn State
70) New York Giants: Joseph Ossai, EDGE, Texas
71) Detroit Lions: Kuony Deng, LB, Cal
Detroit has needed linebackers for what feels like a decade and the team consistently fails to invest properly into the position. Deng is an explosive athlete with coverage upside, something Detroit is lacking in their linebacker corps.
72) New York Jets: Camryn Bynum, CB, Cal
73) Arizona Cardinals: Shaka Toney, EDGE, Penn State
74) Las Vegas Raiders: Osa Odighizuwa, DT, UCLA
75) Los Angeles Chargers: Sage Surratt, WR, Wake Forest
76) Atlanta Falcons: Kary Vincent Jr., CB/S, LSU
I’m not overly sold on Sheffield as Atlanta’s long-term nickel option. With Damontae Kazee hitting free agency, the Falcons could use a versatile and speedy nickel/safety to replace him and take over that spot. Vincent opted out and declared for the 2021 NFL Draft a few weeks ago, and his athletic testing will cement him as a Day Two option.
77) Houston Texans: Asante Samuel Jr., CB, Florida State
78) Chicago Bears: Walker Little, OT, Stanford
79) Denver Broncos: Garrett Wallow, LB, TCU
80) Cleveland Browns: Jordan Davis, DT, Georgia
81) Los Angeles Rams: Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU
The Rams are likely going to have to let John Johnson III walk in free agency due to the Jalen Ramsey extension and the Cooper Kupp extension. With the multiple nature of Staley’s new defense, more safeties are needed on that defense to make up for the linebacker room. Moehrig is a toolsy deep-safety who needs further refinement with his mental progressions in deep coverage.
82) Green Bay Packers: Deommodore Lenoir, CB, Oregon
83) Tennessee Titans: Jabril Cox, LB, North Dakota State
84) Buffalo Bills: Jack Anderson, OG, Texas Tech
85) New York Jets (via SEA): Tyler Shelvin, DT, LSU
86) Indianapolis Colts: Ambry Thomas, CB, Michigan
The Colts have zero depth on the outside corner spot, and Xavier Rhodes is on a one-year deal. Ambry Thomas fits the Ballard mold of cornerback and would be an excellent value add for Indianapolis as they keep improving their defense. He opted out of the season and declared for the draft and could be the next great Michigan corner prospect with his fluidity.
87) Minnesota Vikings: Rashawn Slater, OT/OG, Northwestern
88) Philadelphia Eagles: Seth Williams, WR, Auburn
89) Pittsburgh Steelers: Kylin Hill, RB, Mississippi State
90) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Kolby Harvell-Peel, S, Oklahoma State
91) Dallas Cowboys: James Wiggins, S, Cincinnati
I finally added a safety to the poor safety room in Dallas. The team and safety Xavier Woods seem destined for an eventual split, so a replacement (not named Earl Thomas) is needed immediately. Wiggins has outstanding length and playmaking ability and projects well in covering tight ends and slot receivers with his smooth man coverage ability. A versatile playmaker is needed in that Dallas secondary.
92) Cleveland Browns (via NO): Jack Jones, CB, Arizona State
93) Baltimore Ravens: Drake Jackson, OC, Kentucky
94) Washington Football Team (via SF): TJ Carter, CB, Memphis
95) Kansas City Chiefs: Derion Kendrick, CB, Clemson
The Chiefs have a need…for speed. The Chiefs drafted L’Jarius Sneed last year and need another corner option in that room, considering who they started against Houston in the season opener. Kendrick is a former 5-star WR turned CB and is one of the fastest corners in the country. His speed and playmaking in man coverage will appeal to many teams, especially after he tests well at the NFL Combine.
