7-Round 2021 NFL Mock Draft: Which QB goes to San Francisco at 3rd overall?

    [sv slug=”nfl-draft-guide”]

    2021 7-Round NFL Mock Draft | Round 4, Picks 106-111

    Listed on this page is the fourth and fifth round of this 7-Round 2021 NFL Mock Draft. We begin with the Jacksonville Jaguars at pick 106.

    106. Jacksonville Jaguars
    Shaun Wade, CB/S, Ohio State

    107. New York Jets
    Cam McGrone, LB, Michigan

    108. Atlanta Falcons
    Zech McPhearson, CB, Texas Tech

    A.J. Terrell’s rookie season was a positive sign moving forward for the team, and Isaiah Oliver looked solid as a nickel corner. On the other hand, I’m not sold on Kendall Sheffield’s play. The team signed Fabian Moreau, who likely starts at CB2, but he’s only on a one-year deal. As a result, corner depth is a must-have for the Falcons moving forward, and they’ll answer that here in this 7-Round 2021 NFL Mock Draft.

    Zech McPhearson will be the first Texas Tech DB to be drafted since 2010, and for a good reason. McPhearson’s athleticism and playmaking stand out on film, and it’s clear he possesses great physical skills. He demonstrated surprising fluidity and channeled aggressiveness on film, two rather endearing traits for my grading scale. McPhearson might not start right away, but he has the traits worth developing and has proven he can play outside and inside.

    109. Houston Texans
    Thomas Graham Jr., CB, Oregon

    110. Chicago Bears (via CLE)
    Trill Williams, CB/S, Syracuse

    111. Cincinnati Bengals
    Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami (FL)

    Round 4 | Picks 112-117

    112. Cleveland Browns (via DET)
    Robert Hainsey, OG/C, Notre Dame

    Trade! The Detroit Lions trade pick 112 to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for WR Jarvis Landry and a fourth-round pick in 2022.

    I know many Browns fans (and perhaps Lions fans) will begrudge this trade here in this 7-Round 2021 NFL Mock Draft. However, I make it with both sides in mind. The Browns are looking to go faster on offense, which isn’t Jarvis Landry’s M.O., and he makes way too much money for that.

    For the Lions, he adds a veteran presence in their receiving room plus a future pick as an incentive for taking Landry. John Dorsey, who originated the trade for Landry to Cleveland, is now a high-ranking executive in Detroit. Campbell was the tight ends coach and interim head coach in Miami while Landry was with the Dolphins. Lions assistant wide receivers coach Seth Ryan apprenticed under Phil McGeoghan with the Chargers, who, you guessed it, was Landry’s WRs coach in Miami.

    The Browns add a versatile offensive lineman who can play both guard spots and center at the next level if need be. Likewise, with J.C. Tretter, Joel Bitonio, and Wyatt Teller’s future up in the air, it makes sense they should add depth now to be an eventual replacement.

    113. Green Bay Packers (via CAR)
    Tyree Gillespie, S, Missouri

    Trade! The Green Bay Packers trade picks 135 and 178 to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for pick 113.

    114. Denver Broncos
    Talanoa Hufanga, S, USC

    115. Dallas Cowboys
    Stone Forsythe, OT, Florida

    116. New York Giants
    Jackson Carman, OT/OG, Clemson

    117. San Francisco 49ers
    Tre Brown, CB, Oklahoma

    Round 4 | Picks 118-123

    118. Chicago Bears (via LAC)
    Bobby Brown III, DT, Texas A&M

    Trade! The Los Angeles Chargers trade pick 118 to the Chicago Bears in exchange for DE Akiem Hicks.

    Brandon Staley is looking for another talented defensive lineman who can play a variety of roles up front. The Bears have permitted Akiem Hicks to seek a trade. Given Staley’s familiarity with Hicks, this has logic for both sides in this 7-Round 2021 NFL Mock Draft.

    The Bears nab a raw but talented ball of clay in Bobby Brown III as a potential replacement for Hicks. His length and power make him a dominant force on the interior, but he needs to get better with his hands and pad level to become a consistently dominant player.

    119. Minnesota Vikings
    Osa Odighizuwa, DT, UCLA

    120. New England Patriots
    Ihmir Smith-Marsette, WR, Iowa

    121. Las Vegas Raiders
    Deonte Brown, OG, Alabama

    122. Pittsburgh Steelers (via NE)
    Charles Snowden, EDGE, Virginia

    Trade! The Pittsburgh Steelers send picks 128 and 216 to the New England Patriots in exchange for pick 122.

    The Steelers need to invest in an EDGE of the future after losing Bud Dupree. The depth there is virtually non-existent. Charles Snowden is an elite athlete whose basketball background shows on film. He’s a ridiculous 6’6″, and that length shows up when he rushes the passer. He has the versatility Pittsburgh covets with their outside linebackers as he can drop into space in coverage.

    123. Detroit Lions (via PHI)
    Kenneth Gainwell, RB, Memphis

    Round 4 | Picks 124-129

    124. Washington Football Team
    James Hudson, OT, Cincinnati

    125. Minnesota Vikings
    Divine Deablo, S, Virginia Tech

    126. Tennessee Titans
    Shawn Davis, S, Florida

    127. Indianapolis Colts
    Derrick Barnes, LB, Purdue

    The Colts lost linebacker Anthony Walker in free agency to the Cleveland Browns. Walker takes with him 1,799 snaps over the last two seasons at linebacker, including 282 snaps on special teams. While the team still has young standouts in Darius Leonard and Bobby Okereke, they need to add depth. Therefore, I’d imagine they’ll invest in the LB room on Day 3 of the 2021 NFL Draft.

    The Colts love Senior Bowl players, especially elite athletes. Derrick Barnes checks off both of those boxes, standing out in the Senior Bowl practices and at his pro day. Barnes generated an 8.62 overall RAS, with an elite 20-yard split and vertical. He wasn’t a team captain, but Barnes was uber-productive in college. Ballard likes rangy, athletic linebackers with some length to them, all of which are in Barnes’ wheelhouse.

    128. New England Patriots (via PIT)
    Cam Sample, EDGE, Tulane

    129. Seattle Seahawks
    Benjamin St-Juste, CB, Minnesota

    Round 4 | Picks 130-135

    130. Buffalo Bills (via JAX)
    Anthony Schwartz, WR, Auburn

    131. Baltimore Ravens
    Tyler Shelvin, DT, LSU

    Nose tackle Brandon Williams has just one year left on his deal. The Ravens love the run-stuffing maulers in the middle of their defense, as it allows defensive coordinator Don Martindale’s scheme to do so many unique things with the rest of their defensive front. Nabbing his replacement here in this 7-Round NFL 2021 Mock Draft would fit their MO.

    Tyler Shelvin is an absolute mammoth on the football field. Measuring in at 6’2″ and 350 pounds at his pro day, Shelvin is a massive force up the middle. He also has arguably the best anchor against double-teams in this class. However, Shelvin doesn’t offer much as a pass rusher, but Baltimore doesn’t need him to do that.

    132. Cleveland Browns
    Josh Palmer, WR, Tennessee

    133. New Orleans Saints
    Cade Johnson, WR, South Dakota State

    134. Minnesota Vikings
    D.J. Daniel, CB, Georgia

    135. Carolina Panthers (via GB)
    Chazz Surratt, LB, North Carolina

    Round 4 | Picks 136-144

    136. Baltimore Ravens (via KC)
    David Moore, OG/C, Grambling State

    137. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Trey Sermon, RB, Ohio State

    138. Dallas Cowboys
    Dayo Odeyingbo, EDGE, Vanderbilt

    139. New England Patriots
    Chauncey Golston, EDGE, Iowa

    140. Pittsburgh Steelers
    Ben Cleveland, OG, Georgia

    141. Los Angeles Rams
    Janarius Robinson, EDGE, Florida State

    The Rams re-signed Leonard Floyd yet still need a pass rusher on the outside. The team is hoping Terrell Lewis stays healthy and plays a full season, but the depth behind Lewis and Floyd isn’t strong. With Samson Ebukam also gone, the outside pass rusher is a weak spot on the Rams’ defense. They’ll fix that here in this 7-Round 2021 NFL Mock Draft.

    Additionally, the Rams love long, athletic pass rushers. Robinson boasts an 86-inch wingspan and is a juiced-up athlete. He’s the perfect rotational edge rusher that can develop and provide much-needed explosiveness to a rather lackluster unit.

    142. Green Bay Packers
    Marvin Wilson, DT, Florida State

    143. Minnesota Vikings
    Royce Newman, OT/OG, Ole Miss

    144. Kansas City Chiefs
    Adetokunbo Ogundeji, EDGE, Notre Dame

    Ade Ogundeji is a lengthy and explosive edge rusher, albeit rather raw. He’s got inside/outside versatility, similar to Kpassagnon. Ogundeji displayed his explosiveness with a stellar 10-foot broad jump and impressive 10 and 20-yard splits. He has to improve his overall pass-rush plan, but in this 7-Round 2021 NFL Mock Draft, he has the tools and upside to invest Day 3 capital.

    2021 7-Round NFL Mock Draft | Round 5, Picks 145-152

    145. Jacksonville Jaguars
    D’Ante Smith, OT/OG, East Carolina

    146. New York Jets
    Tommy Doyle, OT, Miami (OH)

    147. Houston Texans
    Shi Smith, WR, South Carolina

    148. Atlanta Falcons
    Patrick Jones, EDGE, Pitt

    149. Cincinnati Bengals
    Chris Rumph II, EDGE, Duke

    150. Philadelphia Eagles
    James Wiggins, S, Cincinnati

    151. Carolina Panthers
    Victor Dimukeje, EDGE, Duke

    152. Jacksonville Jaguars (via DEN)
    Jaylon Moore, OT, Western Michigan

    Trade! The Denver Broncos trade pick 152 to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for QB Gardner Minshew.

    Since the Broncos couldn’t add a top quarterback, their next objective has been to provide competition for Drew Lock. Given that the Jaguars paid C.J. Beathard to be Lawrence’s backup, it leaves Minshew’s roster spot in question.

    Furthermore, the Broncos get a young, cheap competitor to boost their quarterback room, while the Jaguars use the pick to draft a developmental left tackle who could be the successor to Cam Robinson next year in this 7-Round 2021 NFL Mock Draft.

    Round 5 | Picks 153-159

    153. Detroit Lions
    Darrick Forrest, S, Cincinnati

    154. New York Jets
    Joshua Kaindoh, EDGE, Florida State

    155. San Francisco 49ers
    Drew Dalman, C, Stanford

    156. Miami Dolphins
    Rhamondre Stevenson, RB, Oklahoma

    157. Minnesota Vikings
    Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama

    158. Houston Texans
    Seth Williams, WR, Auburn

    159. Los Angeles Chargers
    Shaka Toney, EDGE, Penn State

    Round 5 | Picks 160-168

    160. Arizona Cardinals
    Monty Rice, LB, Georgia

    161. Buffalo Bills
    Joshuah Bledsoe, S, Missouri

    The Bills were in on multiple safeties in the 2020 NFL Draft, building a multiple-safety defense. Adding Joshuah Bledsoe in this 7-Round 2021 NFL Mock Draft, a player who has lined up both deep and in the slot, to help round out that safety room would fit their goals. Bledsoe is a high-intelligence communicator in the secondary, something that Buffalo would love to add to their defense.

    162. Las Vegas Raiders
    Jaelon Darden, WR, North Texas

    163. Washington Football Team
    Daelin Hayes, EDGE, Notre Dame

    164. Chicago Bears
    Hamilcar Rashed Jr., EDGE, Oregon State

    165. Indianapolis Colts
    Simi Fehoko, WR, Stanford

    166. Tennessee Titans
    Trevon Grimes, WR, Florida

    167. Las Vegas Raiders
    William Bradley-King, EDGE, Baylor

    168. Minnesota Vikings
    Tutu Atwell, WR, Louisville

    I’d expect the size concerns to drop Tutu Atwell, given that players with his size and frame are virtually non-existent in the NFL. As a slot/gadget receiver for Minnesota, who already has Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen, Atwell can do damage with his explosiveness.

    Round 5 | Picks 169-177

    169. Cleveland Browns
    Brandon Stephens, CB, SMU

    170. Jacksonville Jaguars
    Patrick Johnson, EDGE, Tulane

    171. Baltimore Ravens
    Darius Stills, DT, West Virginia

    172. San Francisco 49ers
    JaCoby Stevens, S, LSU

    173. Green Bay Packers
    Caden Sterns, S, Texas

    174. Buffalo Bills
    Khyiris Tonga, DT, BYU

    175. Kansas City Chiefs
    Damar Hamlin, S, Pitt

    176. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Jamien Sherwood, S, Auburn

    177. New England Patriots
    Demetric Felton, RB/WR, UCLA

    The Patriots did re-sign James White this offseason, but if Demetric Felton is available, I’d bet it would be difficult for Belichick to pass on a back of his skill set. Moreover, White’s deal is only for one season. Felton primarily played running back at UCLA but lined up and went through receiving drills in Mobile for the Senior Bowl and looked sharp.

    Round 5 | Picks 178-184

    178. Carolina Panthers (via GB)
    Shemar Jean-Charles, CB, Appalachian State

    179. Dallas Cowboys
    Austin Watkins, WR, UAB

    180. San Francisco 49ers
    Jermar Jefferson, RB, Oregon State

    181. Kansas City Chiefs
    Kary Vincent Jr., CB, LSU

    182. Atlanta Falcons
    Tony Fields II, LB, West Virginia

    183. Atlanta Falcons
    Jacob Harris, WR/ TE, UCF

    184. Baltimore Ravens
    Darius Hodge, EDGE, Marshall
