9. Denver Broncos: Matt Corral, QB, Ole Miss
This is a weird class since there’s not a clear-cut No. 1 quarterback — and there are no superstars like we have seen in recent drafts with players such as Joe Burrow, Justin Herbert, and Trevor Lawrence coming into the league. This year, there just isn’t anyone who is wowing the scouts but that doesn’t mean there won’t be signal-callers taken early.
Here, the first one is Matt Corral who lands with the Denver Broncos. This team is built to win now and the only thing holding them up is the presence of a solid starter under center. Should Corral prove to be that for them, they could start to make some noise in the AFC West.
10. New York Jets (via Seattle Seahawks): David Ojabo, EDGE, Michigan
At No. 4, the New York Jets took Derek Stingley which gives them a legit top cornerback. But they can still use some more help in the front seven. After spending two picks in Round 1 last season on offense, they do the same with defense this year, taking David Ojabo from Michigan.
A breakout star in 2021, Ojabo ends up being the second member of the Wolverine’s defensive line to make it into the top 10 in this mock. As for the Jets, he would be a great option across from Carl Lawson, while also helping to pick up the slack should Lawson’s rehab from a season-ending injury go slower than expected.
