Andrew Aziz’s NFL Mock Draft 1.0 (1 Round)

NCAA Football: Senior Bowl Practice Vasha Hunt-USA TODAY Sports

1. Jacksonville Jaguars
Trevor Lawrence - QB - Clemson

Is there any doubt?

2. New York Jets
Zach Wilson - QB - BYU

Is there any doubt...? part 2.

3. San Francisco 49ers (from Miami Dolphins)
Justin Fields - QB - Ohio State

With Jimmy in place, the 49ers can afford to go with the high ceiling prospect who has history with head coach Kyle Shanahan.

4. Chicago Bears (from Atlanta Falcons)
*Chicago trades 2021 1st & 2nd Round Pick + 2022 1st & 4th Round Pick + 2023 1st Round Pick *
Trey Lance - QB - NDSU

Andy Dalton isn’t the long-term answer, so they’ll have to make an aggressive move from the 19th spot to get their long-term answer at quarterback.

5. New England Patriots (from Cincinnati Bengals)
*New England trades 2021 1st and 3rd Round Pick + 2022 1st & 4th Round Pick*
Ja’marr Chase- WR - LSU

Bill has gone full YOLO mode this year, so I expect some type of trade-up for an elite receiver.

6. Miami Dolphins
Penei Sewell - OT - Oregon

Sewell is a generational offensive tackle talent and the Dolphins need to protect Tua.

7. Detroit Lions
Jaylen Waddle - WR - Alabama

The Lions lost Golladay and Jones, but getting Waddle will help fill that void.

8. Carolina Panthers
Kyle Pitts - TE - Florida

Panthers have some offensive line issues, but Pitts is too good to pass up.

9. Denver Broncos
Micah Parsons - LB - Penn State

Broncos have a need at linebacker and I figure they’ll roll the dice one more year with Lock so no Jones here.

10. Dallas Cowboys
Patrick Surtain Jr - CB - Alabama

An Alabama corner to the Cowboys... never been more certain about any pick in my life.

11. Pittsburgh Steelers (from New York Giants)
Pittsburgh Steelers trade 2021 1st and 4th Round Pick + 2022 2nd Round Pick
Mac Jones - QB - Alabama

Steelers need a quarterback for the future and Mac Jones is just hanging out on the board. This trade is worth it for the Steelers.

12. Philadelphia Eagles (from San Francisco 49ers)
Rashawn Slater - OT - Northwestern

The Eagles need offensive line help and Slater is arguably the best player on the board here, even they can’t screw this one up (although they probably will).

13. Los Angeles Chargers
Teven Jenkins - OT - Oklahoma State

Herbert needs a left tackle for the future and Jenkins is just the freak athlete they need.

14. Minnesota Vikings
Christian Barmore - IDL - Alabama

Mike Zimmer slams his fist on the table for a big boy inside, something they desperately need.

15. Cincinnati Bengals (from New England Patriots)
Devonta Smith- WR - Alabama

Trading down and getting Smith is almost too good to be true, and knowing Cincy’s front office, this probably won’t happen.

16. Arizona Cardinals
Jaycee Horn - CB - South Carolina

This will be one of those picks everyone forgets about for 2-3 years until Horn becomes a very good starter.

17. Las Vegas Raiders
Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah - LB - Notre Dame

Raiders love going with great athletes and JOK fits that mold and could be the guy to cover Kelce and Fant for years to come.

18. Tennessee Titans (from Miami Dolphins)
Tennessee Titans trade their 2021 1st and 3rd Round pick
Elijah Moore - WR - Ole Miss

Titans trade up for an Ole Miss receiver to pair with their own Ole Miss receiver; Moore is a perfect fit here.

19. Washington Football Team
Rashod Bateman - WR - Minnesota

WFT is slowly building a monster and Bateman gives them a strong 3-receiver punch that improves their offense.

20. Atlanta Falcons (from Chicago Bears)
Jayson Oweh - ED - Penn State

Oweh is a freaky athlete and the Falcons will fall for the trap of getting another defensive end in the first round... maybe this time it pays off.

21. New Orleans Saints (from Indianapolis Colts)
New Orleans trades 2021 1st and 3rd Round Pick + 2022 4th Round Pick
Terrace Marshall Jr - WR - LSU

Saints trade up with the Colts to take a stud receiver in Marshall, who will play close to home.

22. Miami Dolphins (from Tennessee Titans)
Travis Etienne - RB - Clemson

There’s always that one head scratcher of a move... Dolphins reaching for a running back is that move.

23. New York Jets (from Seattle Seahawks)
Caleb Farley - CB - Virginia Tech

Jets need a cornerback and some attitude on defense; Farley gives you both.

24. New York Giants (from Pittsburgh Steelers)
Greg Newsome II - CB - Northwestern

The Giants played a lot of zone last year and Newsome is a great zone cornerback. They could use a good complimentary CB to Bradberry.

25. Jacksonville Jaguars
Asante Samuel Jr - CB - Florida State

Jaguars take Samuel as they look to rebuild their putrid defense.

26. Cleveland Browns
Kwity Paye - ED - Michigan

The Browns defensive front is carried by Myles Garrett, so finding someone to help him is crucial.

27. Baltimore Ravens
Azeez Ojulari - ED - Georgia

The Ravens are surprisingly weak up front as they’re carried by old man Calais Campbell; they need new fresh blood.

28. Indianapolis Colts (from New Orleans Saints)
Christian Darrisaw - OT - Virginia Tech

Darrisaw is a beast and has plenty of experience at left tackle, which is big area of need for the Colts. With a strong unit in place and good coaching, Darrisaw can be an impactful day 1 starter and have a nice career next to Quenton Nelson. The Colts trading down to pick up an extra two picks and getting Darrisaw is a massive win that we’ve grown to see with Ballard.

29. Green Bay Packers
Kadarius Toney - WR - Florida

Packers can’t piss off Rodgers two years in a row, can they? I say no, so I think they’ll go Toney who is a versatile receiver who fits well in the Packers’ offense.

30. Buffalo Bills
Jaelen Phillips - ED - Miami

Bills could use more athleticism up front and Phillips is one of the most underrated defensive players in the draft.

31. Kansas City Chiefs
Dillon Radunz - OT - NDSU

Chiefs dumped their two offensive tackles, so their offensive line rebuild starts with Radunz, a beast from the FCS.

32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Gregory Rousseau - ED - Miami

Rousseau’s draft stock has fallen over the last year, but he’ll be in a perfect situation in Tampa, where he can thrive and reach a very high level.
