Full 2021 NFL Draft two-round mock draft during the thralls of training camp.
NFL training camps are, shockingly enough, nearing their end but that means that things are heating up. Though less publicized, the same is true for the college football teams playing in the fall as they gear up for mid- and late-September starts to the season. And of course, that will lead to the eventual collision course between the two in April with the 2021 NFL Draft.
Any mock draft for the 2021 NFL Draft at this point offers a ton of uncertainty, more so than normal. Yes, when you are some eight months away without a draft order even set, there is always going to be a ton that can happen between now and then.
At the same time, though, this 2020 season for the NFL and college ranks offers more risk and potential change at this point in the year than ever before.
The 2021 NFL Draft landscape, mock drafts could change a great deal
Perhaps the best instance of how variable every 2021 NFL Draft mock draft is right now, we are expecting that we won’t see Big Ten stars like Justin Fields, Shaun Wade, Aidan Hutchinson and many others this year due to the conference canceling the fall season with the hope of playing in the spring. But that may not be happening now.
According to reports, the Big Ten presidents and higher-ups have been meeting amid protests, lawsuits and petitions from players and discussing the potential for an earlier season, one that could start as soon as Thanksgiving. If that were to happen, it would not only make for an exceptionally odd college season but would allow many prospects the opportunity to play another year without it conflicting with the 2021 NFL Draft process.
This is all to say that, though we can do our best to dive deep into the 2021 NFL Draft with a mock draft right now, it’s more subject to change than ever. Even still, we’re going at it now, using NFL Mock Draft Database to simulate this two-round prediction (including the draft order) and see what the draft can offer all 32 teams over the initial 64 selections.
