2021 7-round NFL Mock Draft | Round 3, Picks 65-96
65) New York Jets: DJ Daniel, CB, Georgia
66) Jacksonville Jaguars: Andre Cisco, S, Syracuse
Andre Cisco is a ball hawk, securing 13 interceptions in 24 career games at Syracuse. The only reason why Cisco is available is due to a season-ending, lower-body injury, which allows the Jaguars to commit to a highway robber.
67) Cincinnati Bengals: Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami
68) Dallas Cowboys: Paris Ford, S, Pittsburgh
69) Los Angeles Chargers: Landon Dickerson, OL, Alabama
70) Philadelphia Eagles: Seth Williams, WR, Auburn
71) Houston Texans: Chuba Hubbard, RB, Oklahoma State
72) Denver Broncos: Desmond Ridder, QB, Cincinnati
Is anyone sold on Drew Lock? If Lock doesn’t turn the corner quickly; as a result, the Broncos will have to start thinking about a contingency plan. Desmond Ridder is a player whose 2021 draft prospectus is on the rise, as he has an arsenal of traits that will have NFL front offices salivating.
73) Carolina Panthers: Abraham Lucas, OT, Washington State
74) Atlanta Falcons: Javonte Williams, RB, UNC
75) Chicago Bears: Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson
In the 2019 National Championship Game, which featured a showdown between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Clemson Tigers, wide receiver Justyn Ross was the best player on the field. A neck injury cost Ross the 2020 season, which has resulted in his draft stock taking a tumble. If Ross can regain his pre-injury form, this might be one of the biggest steals of the draft.
76) Washington Football Team: Rodarius Williams, CB, Oklahoma State
77) Washington Football Team: Dyami Brown, WR, UNC
78) Detroit Lions: Tyler Shelvin, DT, LSU
79) Arizona Cardinals: Hunter Long, TE, Boston College
80) New England Patriots: Forfeited
81) Minnesota Vikings: Rashad Weaver, EDGE, Pittsburgh
82) Las Vegas Raiders: Baron Browning, LB, Ohio State
83) New York Giants: Hamilcar Rashed Jr., EDGE, Oregon State
84) Minnesota Vikings: Marvin Wilson, DT, Florida State
Many mock drafts have Marvin Wilson as a round-one lock, but to quote the great Lee Corso, “Not so fast, my friend.” While Wilson is an excellent prospect and dominant at times, it is hard to overlook his injury history. With that said, adding some beef to the defensive line is a priority for the Vikings, and Wilson is NFL-ready.
85) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Kenneth Gainwell, RB, Memphis
86) Tennessee Titans: Shaka Toney, EDGE, Penn State
87) Miami Dolphins: Dayo Odeyingbo, EDGE, Vanderbilt
88) Indianapolis Colts: Quincy Roche, EDGE, Miami
While he may be a tad undersized, Quincy Roche is one of college football’s most ferocious pass-rushers. In fact, in his brilliant collegiate career, he has accounted for 30 sacks.
Could adding another impactful pass-rusher to an already strong Indianapolis defensive unit take this team to the next level?
89) New York Jets: Josh Myers, OL, Ohio State
90) Los Angeles Rams: Cameron McGrone, LB, Michigan
91) Cleveland Browns: Xavier Thomas, EDGE, Clemson
92) Buffalo Bills: Spencer Brown, OT, Northern Iowa
93) Green Bay Packers: Jaylen Twyman, DT, Pittsburgh
94) Kansas City Chiefs: Jabril Cox, LB, LSU
95) Cleveland Browns: Marlon Tuipulotu, DT, USC
96) Pittsburgh Steelers: Kylin Hill, RB, Mississippi State
While James Conner has been a good story and a productive player for the Steelers, an upgrade is needed at running back. Hill is the total package at the position. Whether it is ball security, pass-catching, making defenders miss, or churning out yards after contact, Hill can do it all.
