2021 NFL Draft
« on: April 22, 2021, 09:28:07 PM »
Surprised we didn't already have a thread.  Putting together my big board right now, for my mock draft for next week, and noticing several guys who opted out last year who are falling quite a bit.  Might ease some fears about that becoming a thing post-COVID.

Rousseau from Miami was a top 10 pick going into the year, now has generally a 2nd round grade.  Rashod Bateman, same deal.  Jhamon Ausbon?  Probably a Day 3 pick now.

If I opted out, I would have logged all of my workouts and football-related work put in and given it to every team.  Take it or leave it, but just provide it.  Just the fact you took the effort to do that would impress smart teams.

TE Pitts and WR Toney figure to go in the 1st for the Gators.
OT Forsythe is getting some looks bc he tested well.  He's a long 6'8" and athletic.  Wasn't especially good, though.
Same with DT Slaton.  He's a monster, but didn't play all that well.  If he can learn how to play the position instead of trying to mug the guy in front of him every play, he could be a very late round steal.
Mr. Underperformance, Shoe-Thrower himself, CB Wilson is getting some love, too, due to a good 40 time with a stout build.  It's amazing what can potentially erase a guy who regressed from his FR season.

Really interested to see where Rondale Moore ends up and how early he's picked... I could see him in the late first round, and anything mid-second round or worse he's an absolute steal.

4.29 at the Purdue pro day. 

He's invited to the combine which starts next Thursday.

Interested to see where the QB's go. If I'm the Jets, I take Fields #2. Period. Only QB's I'd take in 1st round are Lawerence and Fields. Wouldn't touch Wilson til round 2, Lance til round 3, and Mac Jones til at least the 4th.

Is Moore short?  I'm surprised Toney is 6' even.  He plays like a 5'8" pygmy (in a good way).

I don't pay much attention, but I did see something that had Fields dropping below Matt Jones.  These "predictions" are something to pass time.  I'm content to just await the actual thing.  I guess one can bet on the outcome of course.

Would you say Lawrence is as close to a "sure thing" as there normally is?  If the Bungles draft a QB, I know he's nearly always a bust.

I have no clue if this is a good guess or not:

I like Fields, I saw him downfield trying to block a couple of times.  He's a competitor.

Moore was listed by Purdue as 5'9"...

...and measured at the pro day as 5'7".

Eeek.  That's gong to push him way down, fair or not.
