Welcome to the third of several mock drafts. This 2021 NFL mock draft will include trades. Stay tuned for more mock drafts as prospects rise and fall.

2021 NFL Mock Draft 3.0, Including Trades: Part II

Picks No. 1-16

No. 17: Las Vegas RaidersAzeez Ojulari, EDGE, Georgia

Las Vegas secures a high-upside pass rusher similar to Yannick Ngakoue. The Raiders desperately need defensive help, so they address a need with Ojulari.

No. 18: Pittsburgh Steelers, Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, Linebacker, Notre Dame

The Miami Dolphins send the No.18 pick to Pittsburgh for a package that includes the No.24 pick.

Owusu-Koramoah is a unique player, so Pittsburgh is a great spot for him. Owusu-Koramoah will be a dynamic chess piece for Pittsburgh.

No. 19: Washington Football Team, Mac Jones, Quarterback, Alabama

Washington struck out in the 2021 quarterback sweepstakes, but they add Jones here. It may not be a perfect fit for Jones, but he will be surrounded with talented pass-catchers such as Terry McLaurin and Antonio Gibson out of the backfield.

No. 20: Philadelphia EaglesJaycee Horn, Cornerback, South Carolina

Philadelphia addresses their secondary with the selection of Horn.

No. 21: Indianapolis ColtsGregory Rousseau, EDGE, Miami

Rousseau is not the most polished pass rusher. However, he will be an upgrade for the Colts.

No. 22: Tennessee TitansRondale Moore, Wide Receiver, Purdue

Moore will become the Robin to A.J. Brown‘s Batman.

No. 23: New York Jets, Joseph Ossai, EDGE, Texas

The Jets have a solid defense, but they lack strong perimeter pass rushers. Insert Ossai.

No. 24:Philadelphia EaglesKadarius Toney, Wide Receiver, Florida

The Miami Dolphins send the No.24 pick to Philadelphia for a package that includes the No.27 pick.

Toney may not be as fast as Jalen Reagor, but Toney has wheels in his own right. Philadelphia adds a weapon for Jalen Hurts.

No. 25: Kansas City Chiefs, Samuel Cosmi, Offensive Tackle, Texas

The Jacksonville Jaguars send the No.25 pick to Kansas City for a package that includes the No.31 pick.

Kansas City strengthens the offensive line. They also select the heir to Mitchell Schwartz.

No. 26: Cleveland Browns, Zaven Collins, Linebacker, Tulsa

Cleveland adds the Tulsa linebacker to shore up the defense.

No. 27: Miami Dolphins, Terrace Marshall, Wide Receiver, LSU

This pick was originally owned by the Baltimore Ravens. First, Baltimore sends the No.27 pick to Chicago for a package that includes Allen Robinson. Then, Chicago sends the No.27 pick to Philadelphia for a package that includes the No.6 pick. Finally, Philadelphia sends the No.27 pick to Miami for a package that includes the No.24 pick.

Even with several trades down, Miami lands a talented wide receiver to expand Tua Tagovailoa and the offense.

No. 28: New Orleans Saints, Nick Bolton, Linebacker, Missouri

The Saints once again take the star linebacker out of Missouri.

No. 29: Green Bay Packers, Alex Leatherwood, Offensive Tackle, Alabama

The Green Bay offensive line is in flux, but Leatherwood will add stability.

No. 30: Buffalo Bills, Quincy Roche, EDGE, Miami

The Bills have few flaws as a team, but one is the pass rush. Roche should help.

No. 31: Jacksonville Jaguars, Pat Freiermuth, Tight End, Penn State

Even with trading down, the Jaguars secure a weapon for Trevor Lawrence. Freiermuth will help both the passing offense and the blocking for the Jaguars.

No. 32: Minnesota Vikings, Christian Barmore, Interior Defensive Line, Alabama

Because Barmore tumbled down the draft board, Minnesota slides up to the end of the first round to secure the talented interior pass rusher.
