Zach Wilson moves up to the QB2 spot while Kyle Pitts cracks the top five and the Dolphins land a top wide receiver in this three-round 2021 NFL Mock Draft.

The biggest football event of the offseason is rapidly approaching as we get closer to the 2021 NFL Draft. This season, there are several quarterbacks expected to go rather high, and for the first time in a long time, there are even more spots open on NFL teams for a quarterback.

Of course, there could be more dominos to fall which will change the availability. We already saw Matthew Stafford get traded to the Los Angeles Rams. Also, Deshaun Watson and Russell Wilson are both reportedly interested in being traded to new clubs as well which could shake up the landscape even further.

With all that being said, we dive head-first into this three-round 2021 NFL Mock Draft, which gets kicked off with a signal-caller as the Jacksonville Jaguars land themselves a long-awaited franchise quarterback.

When the 2021 NFL Draft kicks off, we will have to wait the entire 15 minutes before Roger Goodell comes up and makes his announcement, but that’s all done for the drama. There’s no one in Jacksonville trying to figure out what to do at the last minute, and they’re not fielding any calls looking to make a move.

They know that Trevor Lawrence is the pick and they have known it since they locked up the No. 1 overall pick in this draft. Lawrence was a star at Clemson and did everything he could to distinguish himself as the best quarterback in the class. Should the Jaguars, who have been hunting for a long-term starter since their inception.

Lawrence gives them that as well as one of the more marketable players in the NFL. This will be a huge step forward for this franchise.
