2021 NFL mock draft: Five QBs in top 10 picks

youmansdraft

The 2021 NFL draft is only a week away, beginning on Thursday, April 29. VSiN senior editor and host Matt Youmans gives his first version of a mock draft for how the draft could unfold.

1. Jaguars: Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson

Top needs: QB, TE, OL, DL

No mock drafter should go 0-for-32 this year because the top pick is a lock. Ignore the contrarian opinions about Lawrence, who’s legit and probably would have been drafted No. 1 two years ago. Jacksonville is no longer a joke. The doubts about Urban Meyer becoming a successful NFL coach will be answered in large part by Lawrence quickly developing into a star.

2. Jets: Zach Wilson, QB, Brigham Young

Top needs: QB, CB, DL, OL

Wilson is not as big and strong as Lawrence, but he’s a gunslinger with elite athletic ability and could turn into a Russell Wilson-type winner. The Jets upgraded by trading Sam Darnold.

3. 49ers: Mac Jones, QB, Alabama

Top needs: CB, DL, OL, QB

This is where the draft begins and where many mock drafts could blow up. San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan could be targeting Justin Fields or Trey Lance to operate his play-action offensive attack, but VSiN’s Michael Lombardi said “multiple sources” in the league indicate it’s Jones or Lance, not Fields. Jones is an accurate passer who completed 77.4% of his throws with 41 touchdowns and four interceptions last season.
