The Denver Broncos and Chicago Bears each trade up to land new franchise quarterbacks in this three-round 2021 NFL Mock Draft
Every year, the most prized selections in every draft class are the top quarterbacks. And in 2021, there are several signal-callers coming into the league who seem more than capable of becoming starters at the next level.
Here, we have a 2021 NFL Mock Draft where those players not only come off the board early, but two teams make a move in the top-10 to land their newest face of the franchise.
Both the Denver Broncos and Chicago Bears decide to throw their chips into the middle of the table and land a player they can believe in. But of course, the first few picks (which are also expected to be quarterbacks) get things rolling.
With all that being said, let’s check out this three-round 2021 NFL Mock Draft with trade predictions.
1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson
There are now reports that the Jacksonville Jaguars have given their entire playbook to Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence. This is probably some of the least shocking news of all time.
Lawrence has been the guy for several years now and no one expected him to slide out of the No. 1 overall pick in this class regardless of who was going to be making the selection.
That doesn’t mean there won’t be some stuff to talk about here — because there always is. Lawrence made some ridiculous headlines as of late when he made a comment about not having a chip on his shoulder. Some pundits didn’t like it, but how in the world is he supposed to have one?
Lawrence is the most pro-ready quarterback since Andrew Luck. Just because he hasn’t been doubted doesn’t mean he’s not elite. And since he hasn’t been doubted (going back to that whole elite thing again) there’s been no need for a manufactured chip. This story is worse than the Jags run under Doug Marrone. Moving on.
