In this 2021 NFL Draft mock draft, the Steelers make a move at QB.

The 2020 NFL season is getting close but there’s no guarantee that it will happen the way we expect it to. The league did recently come out with some new guidelines to help players stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic but most of their ideas — which included eliminating the jersey swap — led to more criticism than anything.

No matter what the league says about the season going on as planned, there’s a lot of uncertainty in the air right now as we deal with the unknown of this virus. Still, we hope that the season will happen simply for the fact that we love the game and want to see not only the returning stars take the field, but the rookies as well who just came in via the 2020 NFL Draft.

Quarterbacks such as Joe Burrow of the Cincinnati Bengals and Tua Tagovailoa of the Miami Dolphins are expected to help turn their franchises around. Other players such as Chase Young of Washington and CeeDee Lamb of the Dallas Cowboys are anxious to make their presence felt in the pros.

As much as those players are wanting to get on the field, the fans are just as excited to see the new crop of rookies as they bring a lot of hope with them. With all that being said, we now look ahead to the upcoming class of collegiate players who are eligible for the 2021 NFL Draft and try to predict which teams they can land with in this first-round mock draft.

And with that, let’s get to the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, which is owned by the Jacksonville Jaguars as the order is determined by our latest NFL Power Rankings.
