  1. Los Angeles Rams: Charles Cross, OT, Mississippi State
    2021 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 5/12): None

    It's mind-boggling that the Rams didn't address their poor offensive line this offseason. Improved blocking is desperately needed.

    Charles Cross has great feet as a former five-star recruit.

  2. Dallas Cowboys: Drake Jackson, DT, USC
    2021 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 5/12): Penei Sewell, OT

    The Cowboys need to improve their defense on every level, which includes their interior pass rush.

    Drake Jackson had a strong freshman campaign (5.5 sacks) as an edge player, but he could fill out and become a five-technique.

  3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida
    2021 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 5/12): Marvin Wilson, DT

    The Buccaneers have blown so many coverages this year. They may want to spend an early draft choice on a cornerback.

    Kaiir Elam has a good mix of length and quickness.



  4. Houston Texans: Jadon Hasselwood, WR, Oklahoma
    2021 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 5/12): None

    Bill O'Brien is gone, so he can't trade Houston's next No. 1 receiver, something the team sorely needs.

    Jadon Haselwood is a large (6-2, 206) receiver who showcased his big-time play-making ability as a mere freshman.

  5. Philadelphia Eagles: Jalen Green, CB, Texas
    2021 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 5/12): Andre Cisco, S

    The Eagles have had problems at cornerback for a long time. Perhaps they'll fix that issue soon.

    Jalen Green has shown great coverage ability in his first season as a starter.



  6. Denver Broncos: Shane Lee, LB, Alabama
    2021 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 5/12): Patrick Surtain, CB

    The Broncos have wanted to find an upgrade at linebacker for a long time.

    Shane Lee was able to start as a freshman because of Dylan Moses' torn ACL, and he was impressive.

  7. Minnesota Vikings: Kyle Hamilton, S, Notre Dame
    2021 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 5/12): Kwity Paye, DT

    Anthony Harris could be gone in the next offseason or two because of his huge impending salary, so a new safety will be needed.

    The very physically gifted Kyle Hamilton showed lots of promise in his freshman year.



  8. Buffalo Bills: D.J. Dale, DT, Alabama
    2021 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 5/12): Deonte Brown, G

    The Bills have some nice short-term solutions next to Ed Oliver, but they may want another defensive tackle for the long haul.

    D.J. Dale wasn't highly productive in 2019, but he was a key rotational player on Alabama's defensive line. It says a lot that Dale was able to see time despite his inexperience.

  9. Green Bay Packers: Rasheed Walker, OT, Penn State
    2021 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 5/12): Chris Olave, WR

    Bryan Bulaga left Green Bay for the wonderful city of San Angeles, so here's a replacement.

    Rasheed Walker could be a first-round pick if he lives up to his potential. He has quick feet for a player his size (6-6, 324).



  10. Tennessee Titans: Evan Neal, G/OT, Alabama
    2021 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 5/12): Rashad Weaver, DE

    Rodger Saffold will be 34 when the 2022 NFL Draft arrives, so here's a new guard for the Titans.

    Evan Neal is a 360-pound lineman who can move very well, which almost seems impossible.

  11. New York Jets: Bubba Bolden, S, Miami
    2021 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 5/12): Trevor Lawrence, QB and Travis Etienne, RB

    The Jets will need to replace Jamal Adams in the near future.

    Bubba Bolden needs to bulk up for the NFL, but he could sneak into the first round.



  12. New England Patriots: Ventrell Miller, LB, Florida
    2021 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 5/12): Jaylen Waddle, WR

    The Patriots lost a number of linebackers this past offseason, so here's a replacement.

    Ventrell Miller is a fast linebacker who has become a nice play-maker in Florida's defense.

  13. New Orleans Saints: John Metchie, WR, Alabama
    2021 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 5/12): Paris Ford, S

    The Saints don't really have any potent receivers beyond Michael Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, so they'll have to change that soon, especially when Sanders becomes too old.

    John Metchie has a tendency to make big plays for Alabama's offense.

  14. Kansas City Chiefs: Damone Clark, LB, LSU
    2021 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 5/12): Tyson Campbell, CB

    The Chiefs have to upgrade their weak linebacking corps.

    Damone Clark could be the next great LSU linebacker with his size and speed.

  15. San Francisco 49ers: Luke Matthews, C, Texas A&M
    2021 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 5/12): Jaycee Horn, CB

    The 49ers have issues they must address in the interior of the offensive line.

    The latest member of the famed Matthews family to enter the NFL, Luke Matthews is a very intelligent blocker who can play both guard and center.



  16. Baltimore Ravens: Brandon Smith, DE/OLB, Penn State
    2021 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 5/12): Terrace Marshall, WR

    The Ravens blitz more than any other team in the NFL, and that would change if they had more natural pass rushers.

    Brandon Smith hasn't done much yet at Penn State, but he's a very athletic edge rusher with tremendous upside.
