Winter Apocalypse 2021
Published at 2/27/2021 12:04:12 PM

We survived the Texas Winter Apocalypse of 2021 even though we had no water for 5 days. My mock draft is based on me being the General Manager of each team. My priorities are franchise QB (the only position I will trade multiple draft picks for), playmakers (this is a change after watching the Chiefs make it to 2 super bowls in a row with tons of speed), pass coverage, pass rush, and pass protection. I won't trade up for anything other than QB and it is better to take the best player in the 1st round than to reach for a need.

Round 1

1. Jaguars: Trevor Lawrence, Quarterback, Clemson

This is the easiest pick ever. We need a franchise QB and there is the best QB available out of college since Andrew Luck.

2. Jets: Justin Fields, Quarterback, Ohio State

Sorry for the previous regime that messed up Sam Darnold, he could have been the guy but that ship has passed. We need a franchise QB. Some think Zach Wilson is better than Fields, really? Fields dominated for 2 seasons in a better conference against better opponents. He took his team to the college football playoffs both seasons. He has athleticism to run as well as being able to make ever throw.

3. Seahawks: Prospect not selected

**TRADE*** The Miami Dolphins trade Tua Tagovailoa, the #3 pick and the #36 pick to the Seattle Seahawks for Russell Wilson. The Dolphins are in win now mode and with a certified franchise QB we become instant Super Bowl contenders. As for the Seahawks, Wilson is taking up most of our payroll and has expressed his unhappiness with our organization. Getting a 1st and 2nd round pick plus a potential young franchise QB allows us to stay competitive and add more overall talent to our squad to stay in the hunt for a Super Bowl.
(As Seattle) Our offensive line has not been great for years so adding a sure fire stud OT is priority number one for a new young QB. Sewell has elite size, athleticism and technique making him well worth this pick.

4. Falcons: Zach Wilson, Quarterback, BYU

We had been hanging on ever since our Super Bowl melt down but now we have a new coaching staff and it is time to think about the future. Wilson has the potential to be a franchise QB plus we can let him sit for a year behind Ryan before starting. You can't pass up a franchise QB when you have the chance to take one.

5. Bengals: DeVonta Smith, Wide Receiver, Alabama

We have our franchise QB in Joe Burrow but we need a third playmaker on the outside to give him all the weapons to succeed. Smith has completely annihilated the best of college football for 2 seasons including the Heisman Trophy last season. He is the best playmaker in this draft.

6. Eagles: Ja'Marr Chase, Wide Receiver, LSU

We have a new franchise QB in Jalen Hurts (FYI, I was personally mocking Hurts in the top 10 for the entire year because I know he was a franchise caliber QB). We need to get him the weapons to succeed. Chase is the best playmaker available in the draft, completely dominated the SEC two seasons ago. He is also the perfect complement to Jalen Reagor that we drafted last season.

7. Lions: Trey Lance, Quarterback, North Dakota State

We completely ripped off the Rams getting two 1st round picks and a QB for Matthew Stafford. We are focused on a rebuild and taking Lance who can sit for a year or two before taking over is perfect. Lance has all the physical tools to be a franchise QB but he needs time to develop.

8. Texans: Kyle Pitts, Tight End, Florida

***TRADE***The Carolina Panthers trade pick #8, #39, our 1st round pick of 2022 and Teddy Bridgewater to the Texans for Deshawn Watson. We are ready to take the next step as a franchise and getting a sure fire franchise QB in Watson is worth the draft capital.
As the Texans we have seriously messed up our team but we have a new management in place. We recognize that Watson is unhappy and we don't want to hold him back. Getting 2 first round picks, a 2nd and a starting QB to hold us over for now is a good return.
Pitts is the best playmaker available in the draft. He destroyed college football last year. He can line up at TE or WR and beat you with his size or speed. With no franchise QB being available we take the best playmaker.

9. Broncos: Caleb Farley, Cornerback, Virginia Tech

Some are still questing Drew Lock at QB. Remember folks he has roughly played one full season at QB while dealing with less than ideal off-seasons and our stud WR missing a ton of time. We like his development and want to continue to build. Farley is the best pass coverage asset in this draft. You need 3 stud CB's to have a great defense.

10. Cowboys: Kwity Paye, Defensive End, Michigan

Dak Presscott showed that he is a franchise QB before getting hurt last year so we will be doing everything in our power to keep him. Our offense was top 5 when he played but our defense was bottom 5. We need to improve on defense. Paye is the best defensive lineman available in this draft. He has the size and tools to be dominant so he is our pick.

11. Giants: Jaylen Waddle, Wide Receiver, Alabama

Daniel Jones did not have a great year last year but it wasn't all his fault as our offensive line and playmakers were not helping him out, mostly due to injury. Waddle is a game changing playmaker that we need on the field. He will make teams pay for loading the box to stop Barkley as he has the speed to score on every play. We need that dynamic to open up our offense.

12. 49ers: Micah Parsons, Linebacker, Penn State

We think we have a franchise QB, the one year he was healthy we were in the Super Bowl. We will give it one more go. We also need to resign Trent Williams as he is one of the best LT in football. Parsons is an elite athlete with the ability to play LB or edge rusher. We plan to use him for both to help make our defense elite again.

13. Chargers: Rashawn Slater, Offensive Guard, Northwestern

We have a franchise QB in Justin Herbert now we need to protect him. Enter Slater who can play any where on the offensive line. We are hoping at LT.

14. Vikings: Patrick Surtain, Cornerback, Alabama

Every elite defense needs 3 stud CB's. Surtian is big, strong and fast. We need a starter on the outside of our defense.

15. Patriots: Jaycee Horn, Cornerback, South Carolina

We have had elite defenses through the years and dominant pass coverage is how you do it. Our's wasn't as great last year as it has been so adding youth is key. Horn is a stud CB with all the tools to be a starter in this league.

16. Cardinals: Christian Darrisaw, Offensive Tackle, Virginia Tech

We have our franchise QB and now we need to make sure he has the time to dominate defenses. Darrisaw is huge and powerful. He will improve our oline.
