Our latest 2021 NFL Mock Draft has QBs landing in the ATL and Windy City
Week 13 felt as though it would never get here, simply because the NFL never wanted to play the final game on tap — which was actually one of the first ones originally on the schedule.
A Thanksgiving showdown between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers was moved to Wednesday and the Ravens were dealt a loss as some of their best players were out of the game. With that finally behind us, we could look ahead to the next week — or at least those teams can. We instead go all the way to the offseason with another 2021 NFL Mock Draft coming your way.
Once again, we use our latest NFL Power Rankings on Spin Zone to determine the order of our mock draft, which has the New York Jets kicking things off.
Will the New York Jets really give up on Sam Darnold after just three seasons? Maybe. The former No. 3 overall pick wasn’t given a fair shake as he had to deal with Adam Gase and was never given a great roster around him. Still, it seems as though major changes are coming to The Big Apple which means there won’t be many people in the front office who feel as though they are invested in Darnold.
That’s why they can turn to Trevor Lawrence here. The Clemson quarterback is a superstar that can carry a franchise. Or at least it seems he can. The dysfunctional Jets will be the ultimate test for him.
Justin Fields saw his stock take a hit with his first bad game (arguably ever) against Indiana. However, if you judge him based on that one game, you will be sadly disappointed. Fields is the real thing and should have no problem becoming the first true face of the franchise for the Jags. And they need that desperately.
