Last update: Friday, April 30, 2021.
This is a 2021 NFL Mock Re-Draft of Rounds 2 and 3 for Friday evening's NFL Draft coverage. With all of the trades that will go down, I don't expect to get many of these right, but it's still fun to speculate where the top prospects will go on Day 2 of the 2021 NFL Draft.

Go to Charlie's 2021 NFL Mock Re-Draft - Round 3
Jacksonville Jaguars: Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma State
I would not be surprised if the Jaguars made building around Trevor Lawrence a priority in this draft class. The majority of their offensive line could be gone after the 2021 season, so it would not surprise me if Urban Meyer adds a few lineman with strength, physicality, athleticism, and leadership traits. Here's a potential long-term right tackle or guard.
Jenkins (6-6, 320) has the a skill set to start quickly in the NFL. He is a big edge protector who will enter the NFL with a lot of experience. He broke into the starting lineup as a sophomore and was a steady contributor to the success that Chuba Hubbard found on the ground. Jenkins is quick and athletic on the edge to protect his quarterback with good size and power to get a push in the ground game. A lot of teams have second-day grades on Jenkins, but there were enough teams that viewed him as a first-rounder. Teams see Jenkins staying at right tackle and also think he could kick inside to guard.
New York Jets: Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia
The Jets could use more young talent at cornerback. This is a good value for New York.
Campbell has good size, speed, and some natural coverage ability. He needs to get stronger and improve his ability to play the ball, but he has a lot of natural talent to develop. In 2020, Campbell recorded 29 tackles, an interception and four passes broken up. He did a superb job of blanketing Auburn wide receiver Seth Williams in Week 2, and Williams was incapable of generating separation from Campbell. Campbell played well in every game of 2020, other than against Florida as he had some struggles with star tight end Kyle Pitts.
The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder first flashed his ability for Georgia during 2018. He then had 15 tackles and four passes broken up in 2019. Over those two seasons, Campbell was a streaky player with some ups and downs, but showed that he showed plenty of upside to develop. He then was more consistent in 2020.
Atlanta Falcons: Levi Onwuzurike, DT, Washington
The Falcons could use a long-term difference-maker for the inside of their defensive line. Onwuzurike could be an interior rusher and disruptor.
Onwuzurike is a quick gap-shooter who gets penetration and is disruptive in the backfield. The 6-foot-3, 290-pounder is strong for his size and a tough run defender. Onwuzurike is more of a disruptor than a producer in the pass rush, totaling just seven sacks over three seasons. He had 34 tackles in 2018 and 45 stops in 2019 before sitting out the 2020 season.
Miami Dolphins: Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU
The Dolphins could use more safety talent, and Moehrig is the exact kind of safety they want.
Moehrig recorded 47 tackles, two interceptions and nine passes broken up in 2020. Team sources like his size, coverage skills, length, ball skills, and instincts. They say he is similar to Grant Delpit in his skill set, but Moehrig is a better tackler. The 6-foot-2, 208-pounder put together an impressive 2019 season with excellent ball production aside a solid tackle total. He totaled four interceptions, 11 passes broken up, two forced fumbles and 62 tackles on the year. It was his first season as a starter after being a good special teams contributor in 2018 as a freshman. Moehrig has good size to him.
Philadelphia Eagles: Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State
The Eagles could use some young talent on their offensive line. Radunz could kick inside to guard or maybe even center.
With a lot of NFL eyes on Bison quarterback Trey Lance in 2020, Radunz (6-6 298) could have been a riser if he had a full season. As it stands, Radunz has good tape protecting Lance in 2019 and was an effective edge blocker for North Dakota State. Radunz could stand to get stronger for the NFL.
Cincinnati Bengals: Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan
The Bengals add more offensive line talent to protect Joe Burrow.
Mayfield held his own against Chase Young at the end of the 2019 season and showed that he has a starting skill set for the NFL. The 6-foot-5, 319-pounder has good size to him with serious upside. He is a good athlete, but he also has some issues in technique that he needs to improve upon for the NFL. Mayfield could be a good fit at right tackle or move inside to guard.
Carolina Panthers: Dayo Odeyingbo, DE/3-4DE, Vanderbilt
The Panthers grab a three-technique to finish off their talented young defensive line.
Odeyingbo totaled 32 tackles, 5.5 sacks and a pass batted in 2020. He played better than the numbers illustrate and produced steady pressure on the quarterback. The 6-foot-6, 280-pound Odeyingbo is strong at the point of attack and possesses enough power to bull his way into the pocket and hold his ground in run defense. With his quality first-step and a second gear to get upfield, Odeyingbo can use a speed rush to put heat on the quarterback.
Prior to tearing an Achilles tendon in early 2021, Odeyingbo looked like he had a shot to be a late first-round pick. The injury probably relegates him to the second day of the 2021 NFL Draft. Some team sources like Odeyingbo's ability to move inside to defensive tackle and think he could grow into being a full-time tackle early in his NFL career. They feel Odeyingbo has a ton of upside as a future three-technique defensive tackle.
Denver Broncos: Nick Bolton, LB, Missouri
Denver could use more young talent at inside linebacker.
Bolton totaled 95 tackles, two sacks and five passes broken up in 2020. The 6-foot, 232-pounder showed some pass-coverage skills as a sophomore with two interceptions and eight passes broken up. In the ground game, he also was a solid tackler with 100 stops.
For the NFL, Bolton looks like a backup middle linebacker who could contribute on special teams. He might develop into a starter eventually, but he lacks speed, explosion, and is just an average athlete in the eyes of pro evaluators. Some team sources have said they graded Bolton in the mid-rounds of the 2021 NFL Draft.
Detroit Lions: Elijah Moore, WR, Ole Miss
Detroit needs more young wide receiver talent. Here's a speed receiver for Jared Goff.
Moore put together a productive 2020 season, catching 86 passes for 1,193 yards and eight touchdowns. He showed improvement over his junior (67-850-6) and sophomore (36-398-2) seasons. Some team sources said they graded Moore in the mid-rounds of the 2021 NFL Draft. The 5-foot-9, 185-pounder could be a slot receiver in the NFL.
New York Giants: Azeez Ojulari, OLB, Georgia
The Giants could use more edge-rush talent. Here's a good fit for their scheme.
Ojulari impressed for Georgia in 2020, totaling 5.5 sacks, 27 tackles, two forced fumbles and two passes batted. He had 5.5 sacks with 36 tackles in 2019. Ojulari was a dangerous edge rusher and put good pressure on the quarterback in 2020. Florida left tackle Stone Forsythe gave Ojulari issues, and Ojulari (6-3, 240) should have returned to school to improve his ability to get off blocks before going to the NFL, but he entered the 2021 NFL Draft.
Ojulari has some talent, but some team sources said they had him graded late on Day 2. They feel he is not a special athlete and needs to get stronger. However, the team that likes Ojulari enough to draft him could pull the trigger sooner.
San Francisco 49ers: Asante Samuel Jr., CB, Florida State
The 49ers could use some youth at safety and corner. Here's the latter.
Even though he is undersized, Samuel (5-10, 184) is a gritty player who shows the ability to cover and play the ball. Over the past few seasons, Samuel made some big plays for Florida State, but his size mismatch problems were exposed at times. In 2020, Samuel had 30 tackles with three interceptions, one forced fumble and six passes defended. He totaled 48 tackles, an interception and 14 passes defended in 2019. Samuel only fits as a slot corner at the next level because he doesn't have the size to play on the outside. He is the son of Asante Samuel, who played 11 years in the NFL with the Patriots, Eagles and Falcons.
Dallas Cowboys: Christian Barmore, DT, Alabama
The Cowboys grab an interior pass rusher and disruptor who's a good fit for Dan Quinn's defense.
Barmore recorded 37 tackles, eight sacks, three forced fumbles and three passes batted in 2020. He was a dangerous interior pass rusher capable of putting consistent heat on the quarterback. His run defense, however, needs work for the NFL. Barmore flashed ability as part of Alabama's rotation in 2019, recording 26 tackles and two sacks. It was only his redshirt freshman season, so he could develop and become more well-rounded as he gains experience. The 6-foot-5, 310-pound Barmore has good size with length at the point of attack to go along with quickness and athleticism.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Landon Dickerson, C, Alabama
Jacksonville continues to build up its long-term offensive line for Trevor Lawrence. Dickerson has the leadership and intangibles that Urban Meyer wants to establish the culture he is looking to cultivate with the Jaguars.
Dickerson played well for Alabama in 2020 and helped himself with NFL teams. He's getting second- and third-round grades, according to some team sources. Dickerson has some skill-set limitations, but he has very good technique and is fundamentally sound. He is a smart center who knows how to play the game.
Dickerson (6-6, 308) is a transfer from Florida State who had a strong 2019 season for Alabama. Over his time with the Crimson Tide, Dickerson was a solid run blocker and dependable in the passing game. He has good size to him with more length than most centers, and he also could get consideration at guard.
New England Patriots: Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame
The Patriots could use some youth on the offensive line.
Eichenberg won the left tackle job for 2018 as the replacement for Mike McGlinchey. The 6-foot-6, 305-pound Eichenberg was solid, but not overly dominant, for Notre Dame over the next three seasons. Eichenberg was a steady blind-side protector who was dependable in the ground game. He is not overly strong, quick, or athletic, but he is smart, tough and reliable. Eichenberg could be a starting tackle or guard in the NFL.
Los Angeles Chargers: Jevon Holland, S, Oregon
The Chargers could use more young talent in their secondary, and Holland has the versatility to help them at corner and safety.
Holland (6-1, 200) was a playmaker for the Ducks over 2018 and 2019, putting together fabulous ball production. As a freshman, he had 42 tackles with five interceptions and eight passes broken up. In 2019, he had 66 tackles with four interceptions and four passes batted.
Holland's instincts and ball skills make him a dangerous threat to snatch interceptions and break up passes downfield. He could stand to get stronger to tackle in the NFL, but he had respectable tackle totals over his freshman and sophomore seasons. Holland is a dangerous free safety who can shut down the deep middle of the field, but also has the ability to play nickel corner and perhaps some outside corner with development. He could be a sleeper steal in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Las Vegas Raiders: Jabril Cox, LB, LSU
The Raiders need to improve their linebacker talent. Here's a great fit for Gus Bradley's defense.
The North Dakota State transfer has a ton of upside and was one of the only bright spots for LSU during the 2020 season. The 6-foot-4, 231-pounder totaled 58 tackles with one sack, three interceptions and five passes defended on the year.
Cox has good size and speed, and teams see him as a future starter and a player who should continue to improve as he gains experience. Cox was a tremendous pass coverage linebacker in college. For the NFL, he needs to get more physical.
Arizona Cardinals: Javonte Williams, RB, North Carolina
The Cardinals grab a power runner to help make Kyler Murray's job easier.
Williams was a load for the Tar Heels in 2020, showing power and quickness as a runner. He averaged 7.3 yards per carry on the year for 1,140 yards with 19 touchdowns. He also had 25 receptions for 305 yards and three scores. With his strong build, Williams (5-10, 220) is a good goal-line and short-yardage runner able to push the pile and pick up yards after contact. He also demonstrated some receiving ability for a big back over the past couple of seasons. Williams could have three-down starting potential for the NFL.
Miami Dolphins: Kylin Hill, RB, Mississippi State
The Dolphins could use more talent in the backfield, and Hill would be a great fit for their offense.
Hill took 15 carries for 58 yards and made 23 receptions for 237 yards and a touchdown in his limited action of 2020. In 2019, Hill averaged 5.7 yards per carry for 1,347 yards with 10 scores. He made 17 receptions for 174 yards and a touchdown too. Hill ran well for the Bulldogs, showing power and quickness, but they struggled to help him find good running lanes in a number of games in 2019. In 2018, Hill averaged 6.3 yards per carry for 734 yards with four touchdowns on only 117 carries. He also caught 22 passes for 176 yards and four touchdowns that season. Hill has starting potential for the NFL, as he is a tough runner who combines quickness and physicality while also having the upside to become a good contributor in the passing attack.
Washington Redskins: Sam Cosmi, OT, Texas
The Redskins could use a long-term left tackle.
Cosmi helped himself at the Texas Longhorns' pro day by checking in at 6-foot-6, 314 pounds. He then ran a fast 40 for an offensive tackle at 4.87 seconds and bench pressed 225 pounds 36 times.
Throughout his time at Texas, Cosmi did a good job in pass protection, showing length, quickness and athleticism on the edge. He could be a dependable left tackle in the NFL to protect the blind side. As a run blocker, Cosmi is not consistent in the ground game and lacks explosion on contact. He showed improved strength in 2020 to wrestle defenders once engaged, and he will flash the desire to finish defenders with some physicality, but he is inconsistent. A number of them have Cosmi graded in the second round, but some thought he had a chance at going in the back half of the first round.
Chicago Bears: Aaron Robinson, CB, Central Florida
The Bears grab a corner to pair with Jaylon Johnson. This is an excellent value for Chicago.
Robinson (6-1, 193) was a solid corner for Central Florida over the past two seasons, showing good size and cover skills. The senior recorded six pass breakups and 41 tackles in 2020. As a junior, he had 54 tackles, three interceptions and 10 passes broken up.
Robinson possesses a good skill set with size, speed, twitchy athleticism, and upside. He is a good fit as a press-man corner, and he has the agility and fluidity to handle off-man coverage. Robinson is one of the faster and more fluid cornerbacks for the 2021 NFL Draft. He has issues in zone coverage and vision issues that lead to paralysis by analysis, but Robinson would be a great fit for a man-coverage defense.
Tennessee Titans: Carlos Basham, 3-4DE, Wake Forest
The Titans signed Bud Dupree, but they need more edge rush across from him.
Basham totaled 28 tackles and five sacks in 2020. The 6-foot-5, 275-pounder showed a big improvement from his sophomore to junior season, going from 4.5 sacks in 2018 to 11 in 2019. His run defense remained steady with 64 tackles as a sophomore and 57 as a junior. In his breakout redshirt junior year, Basham also had three forced fumbles and three passes batted.
Basham has good size size for the NFL in terms of height and weight, plus he is faster and more athletic than one would expect. With Basham's skill set, he has upside for the next level. He is a well-balanced defender who is tough at the point of attack. Basham is not a pure speed demon off the edge and overwhelming pass rusher, but is a consistent and well-rounded defender who should be a solid left defensive end in the NFL.
Indianapolis Colts: Spencer Brown, OT, Northern Iowa
The Colts need a left tackle of the future. Here's a candidate who could be star after some grooming from Indianapolis excellent coaching staff.
The 6-foot-8, 314-pound Brown was a 2-year starter at tackle for Northern Iowa and decided to skip his senior year to enter the 2021 NFL Draft. Team sources say Brown is a good long athlete, but he is very raw and has holes in his game. Those developmental issues are understandable because he played eight-man football in high school and was a defensive end before starting out his collegiate career at tight end. Brown also had three different offensive line coaches over the past three years.
Along with his need to develop, Brown has medical concerns that could hurt him with some teams. Scouts, however, rave about his character being great and feel he could turn into a good starter if a team is patient.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Jackson Carman, OT, Clemson
The Steelers could use multiple offensive line upgrades.
Carman was a solid left tackle for Clemson in 2020, including putting together a good performance against Notre Dame. While he played left tackle for Clemson, Carman has the versatility to play left tackle, right tackle, and guard. The 6-foot-5, 345-pound Carman is a an easy mover with excellent size and quickness for a big-bodied offensive lineman. He has some technical issues to fix that were put on full display in the playoff loss to Ohio State. Some team sources thought Carman might sneak into the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft given his skill set of size, speed and athleticism, but he had a disappointing pro day and some teams have significant character concerns with Carman.
Seattle Seahawks: Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue
Seattle grabs a play-maker for Russell Wilson. Moore could be deadly across from D.K. Metcalf.
Moore recorded 35 receptions for 270 yards and a rushing touchdown in 2020. In 2019, Moore had 29 receptions for 387 yards with two touchdowns over four games, but a hamstring injury robbed him of three quarters of the season. The 5-foot-9, 180-pounder electrified college football in 2018, including a dominating performance that led Purdue to an upset of Ohio State. The freshman caught 114 passes for 1,258 yards with 12 touchdowns in 2018. He also had 18 carries for 203 yards and a touchdown as a tailback and contributed on special teams.
Los Angeles Rams: Wyatt Davis, G, Ohio State
The Rams could use more offensive line talent to protect Matthew Stafford and open holes for Cam Akers.
The 6-foot-4, 315-pound Davis has good size to him and was a tough run blocker for the Buckeyes in 2019. He is strong at the point of attack and is a bull in the ground game. For the NFL, he will need to improve his ability to take on speed rushers. Davis is stout to anchor against bull rushes, but he needs to refine his pass protection. He gave up a couple of sacks in 2020.
Kansas City Chiefs:Sage Surratt, WR, Wake Forest
The Chiefs could use more wide receiver talent for Pat Mahomes.
Surratt decided to sit out the 2020 season because of COVID-19. Team sources say Surratt looked good at the Senior Bowl, showing hands, size, and body control. They believe he will be a solid pro. Surratt (6-3, 215) is a big receiver who uses his size to make some big catches over defensive backs. He is a good red-zone weapon, but he could have issues separating from NFL cornerbacks. In 2019, Surratt caught 66 passes for 1,001 yards with 11 touchdowns. He had 41 receptions for 581 yards and four scores in 2018.
Cleveland Browns: Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, OLB, Notre Dame
The Browns could use more talent at linebacker. Here's a good weapon for defending against the quarterbacks in their division.
Owusu-Koramoah (6-1, 215) has a shot at going in the opening night of the 2021 NFL Draft, but he is not the same caliber of prospect as Devin White, Roquan Smith or Patrick Willis. In 2020, Owusu-Koramoah had 61 tackles, 1.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, three passes broken up and an interception. He recorded 79 tackles, 8.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and four passes defended in 2019.
Owusu-Koramoah is a fast linebacker with cover skills, and some team sources have compared him to former Jaguar Telvin Smith. Like Smith, Owusu-Koramoah could weigh in the 215-220-pound range, which is closer to the size of a safety than a linebacker. Some teams won't be as high on a linebacker who is underweight for the NFL.
New Orleans Saints: Terrace Marshall Jr., WR, LSU
The Saints could use more young talent at receiver across from Michael Thomas.
Marshall had 48 receptions for 731 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2020 before opting out of LSU's final two games - against Alabama and Florida. Team sources were impressed with Marshall, who showed off his size, speed, and big-play ability in 2020. He flashed in 2019, recording 46 receptions for 671 yards and three touchdowns. Marshall clearly was capable of producing more, but LSU featured Ja'Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson. Marshall (6-3, 200) looks like a first- or second-round talent given his size, deep speed, route-running and versatility.
Buffalo Bills: Kelvin Joseph, CB, Kentucky
The Bills could use more cornerback talent to go with Tre'Davious White.
The 6-foot-1, 192-pound Joseph is a love/hate prospect because he has an excellent skill set with size, speed and athleticism, but he has a lot of bad tape on which he was roasted at times - the Florida game was especially ugly. The inconsistencies led to Joseph even getting benched for a time during the 2020 season with Kentucky, and he quit the team before the year was over. For his 2020, he collected 25 tackles, four interceptions and one pass defended.
Green Bay Packers: Trey Smith, OT, Tennessee
The Packers grab some offensive line help.
Quenton Nelson was the top offensive lineman in college football in 2017, but the second-best guard in the nation could have been Smith. Considering there were other good guards, like Will Hernandez and Braden Smith, who were second-round picks in the 2018 NFL Draft, that is really saying something for how Trey Smith played in 2017. The freshman was a steady pass protector and a bull in the ground game. The 6-foot-6, 320-pounder dominated at the point of attack in 2017 and looked like he was just scratching the surface of his upside to be even better with more experience.
Smith played left tackle as a sophomore before blood clots in his lungs ended his season early. He returned to the field in 2019 and had a good season playing guard for the Volunteers. Smith can play guard or tackle, but guard is his best position.
Kansas City Chiefs: James Hudson, OT, Cincinnati
The Chiefs grab another tackle to bookend with Orlando Brown.
The 6-foot-5, 310-pound Hudson could be a nice value pick on the second day of the 2021 NFL Draft. He has a good skill set with size, quickness and athleticism. Hudson started out his collegiate career at Michigan before transferring to Cincinnati. With the Bearcats, he became a good edge protector and solid contributor in the ground game.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Andre Cisco, S, Syracuse
Tampa Bay has Jordan Whitehead in the last year of his contract. Even if Whitehead comes back, the Bucs could use some safety depth, and Cisco is the type of ballhawk who they target.
Cisco recorded one interception and 11 tackles in 2020 prior to a season-ending injury suffered in a pre-game collision. Over his first two seasons in college football, Cisco (6-0, 203) was a pure ball hawk for Syracuse. In 2019, he recorded 65 tackles with five interceptions and five passes broken up. Cisco had a huge 2018 season with seven interceptions, 18 passes broken up, one forced fumble and 60 tackles.
