Lawrence- 6-5 5/8, 213, QB, Clemson,
Okay, so. Not really any
choice here. Lawrence is the best QB prospect since Elway. He came back
last week against Pitt, and played as perfect a game as I have ever seen
against a very good Pitt team. But it is his ability to win games that
makes him special. One loss (against the best college football team I
ever saw) in three seasons, and zero in high school.
"If our goal was for
Trevor to win the Heisman, he'd be leading the (Fields, get it:) right
said.. “Our goal is to win. The best player in the country is Trevor
Lawrence. He doesn't need to win the Heisman for that to be the case.
Most logical people know that.”
From The Mother Of All Mocks… “I know, I decided to go with a surprise
pick here. But Lawrence was on his way to being the best ever, but he
wasn’t able to win his 2nd Championship game. In his defense, I did not
like the Clemson Defense in 2020. I wrote before the season that if he
won it all, with that Defense, he would be the Greatest Of All Time. He
Excellent mechanics throwing. Flawless eyes. He reads
defenses as quicks and fast as anyone I’ve seen. He’s fast when he runs
outside. Very underrated speed. He’s an excellent scrambler. Absolutely
great rolling to either side and throwing off platform. Great body control
running to his left, to turn, and sometimes hop a little, to square and
Great arm. Throws the touch passes and catchable balls
with elite accuracy better than any QB in a while. Great placing it right
where his WR can grab it or the ball sails out of bounds. Has the
fastball, but also has the ball placement and accuracy to win with elite
touch, timing, and placement. Very good off script.
He will sometimes throws late in the Redzone. Can struggle
to throw it into small spaces on the Goalline. Got beat up the past
couple years. Required shoulder surgery on his non-throwing arm this off

2. N.J. Jets:
(QB, CB, WR, DE, RB, Edge, OL, DE, OT, TE, DB, IOL, Edge, DB, WR, TE, LB, OL, IDL,)-
*Zach Wilson- QB, BYU, 6-2.1, 214, 9 1/2” Hands, #1-
I love the Jets. I love
how the toss away top five picks like skittles. Word on the street is
that this pick is a done deal. Jets GM has settled on Wilson after his
Proday. Which is hilarious, because they were saying the same the same
thing about Darnold just a few years ago.
“What I can tell you with
regards to Sam is (Darold/Wilson) he’s got an unbelievable arm talent.
There’s a reason why he was the No. 3 pick in the draft.” Robert
Saleh said. “He’s fearless in the pocket. He’s got a natural throwing
motion. He’s mobile. He’s extremely intelligent. He’s tough as nails. His
reputation in the locker room is unquestioned. Just that in general,
there’s a reason why he was the third pick in the draft and you can see
all those qualities on tape and in the building [from] the way people
speak about him.”
They are pretty much
saying the same things about Wilson now. "(Wilson) made some
incredible off-platform throws. To the right, to the left," Daniel
Jeremiah said. "You saw him drive the football with pace, velocity
and accuracy. There were some misses down the field; I wouldn't read too
much into that. It was more movement from a quarterback than I think
we've ever seen for a pro day."
The Jets were said to
have told an unnamed source at his Proday that this was a “two player
Draft” and the first pick starts at three. Meaning, Lawrence One, Wilson
Two; After Wilson threw like Patrick Mahomes at his Proday. I have been
saying for a while that his ability to throw off-schedule, off- platform,
and across his body is Mahomes-Lite. He is also great off-balance, off-
the ground, and off his rocker.
“Great staff, love those
Wilson said at his Proday. “Joe Douglas is a great guy and it was
good to see him out here and they’ve got a good thing going. My Zoom
interaction with them has been just like any other team, trying to go
through and pick your brain, see what you’re about, the way you process
things, all that kind of stuff.”

Taken From The Mother Of
All Mocks… “Wilson is a true freak. He’s a poor man’s Patrick Mahomes.
He has that wild knack for running around like a chicken with his head cut
off, and just as it looks like he is about to flap around into the soup, he
suddenly spots an open receiver deep and slings it sidearm, off balance,
off platform, off script, 50-yards downfield.
He can throw the fastball into the well covered WR’s gut.
Nice small window thrower. He will get hurt throwing it, as he’s being
tackled. He will get up slow, and complete the next throw. Terrific timing.
He has that knack for waiting that extra split second to get the ball
through a tight throwing lane…” Read

Vs UCF: Wilson is so steady and easy climbing in the
pocket to give his WRs times, and makes throwing with a rusher in his face
look easy. Great zip on the ball, but he can arc the softie to his
uncovered Wide Receiver. Excellent athlete who even went out for a pass,
and caught it. Great thrower who is also a great option on the keeper to
get outside and score the TD in the Redzone. Steady feet in the pocket.
Throws a beautiful ball to his TE going
down the seam with a rusher in his face. He rarely lets the rush bother
him. His passes are always fast and accurate. He can fit it into a tiny
hole in the Redzone with beautiful precision. Struggles to throw quick.
Needs to see it. Better off script than running an Offense. Played on a
smaller school level, and only faced one legit Defense. But he has a rare
They were third in the country in
explosive plays. That’s also due to the RB. Good job throwing to his second
option over the middle. Wilson can throw a bullet over the middle, between
two DBs, to the TE. He tore UCF a new on in the 1st quarter. He has as fast
a fastball as any QB in this Draft. Elite arm talent.
Great thrower on the flea flicker.
Which I know sounds dumb, but it is a tough throw. You have to take your
eyes off the defense to hand the ball off. Then again, to catch the
kickback. Then refocus on the D and find the open WR. I just think that’s a
tougher throw than people think. He can throw the 15-yard Out on a rope.
He is in total command of the Offense.
Great job leading the RB turning up field after swinging out of the
backfield. He will go under center. He will run an NFL play action, turn
his back to the Defense, and hit his TE in the hands in the Endzone.
Terrific scrambler when he takes off and can run for the TD. Great throwing
on the run like Mahomes. Amazing Off-Script and Off Platform. Best I’ve
seen since Mahomes.
accounted for five touchdowns (two passing, three rushing) to lead BYU over
previously unbeaten Louisiana Tech, 45-14, on Saturday. Wilson set a school record for completion
percentage (with a minimum of 20 or 25 attempts) completing 24 of 26 passes (92.3 percent) for 325
yards and two touchdowns, while rushing for 43 yards and a career-high
three scores. He already owns BYU's best completion percentage for a
15-attempt minimum with his perfect 18 for 18 game in 2018 vs. Western
The five-touchdown outing was the first of Wilson's
college career. He also went for 300-plus passing yards in back-to-back
games for the first time in his career after 392 last week. It was the
first time a BYU quarterback had back-to-back 300-yard games since Tanner
Mangum did it in 2015 against UConn and East Carolina. Wilson also became
the first BYU quarterback to have a pass efficiency rating of 200+ in three
consecutive games (222.7, 231.6, 206.0).
3. San Fran 49ers- (QB? CB, Edge, OLT, LB, CB, OC, DL, CB, WR, DL, DB, TE, OG,)-
Mac Jones- 6-2, 217, 3-C 7.04, (PD) 4.68, 32” Vert, SS 4.39, QB, Alabama-
San Fran made this massive
move up, because they want to replace Jimmy-G at QB. They are in perfect
position to pick between two or three QBs. The price they paid was
miniscule, if they pick up a Franchise QB. Word on the street is that
this is Shanahan’s guy. Mac can do what he likes the most in the passing
I was reluctant to put
him here, even though I was the first to put Mac in the 1st. He reminded
me of Brady in the pocket. He doesn’t have Brady’s psycho competitiveness
that make him the GOAT. But he has that quiet seething competitiveness
that forced him to go undefeated in his first fulltime season as a
starter in the SEC.
I’m a big Mac Jones
Fan, and anyone who isn’t, wasn’t watching him play last season. Historic
season in the SEC, after his Number One WR, Waddle, went down. Topnotch
touch, accuracy, and smarts. Finds the open WR as quick as anyone. Has
the softest touch and ball placement on deep passes.
Reminds me of Joe
Burrow, who also has that quiet seething competitiveness. He doesn’t have
Burrow’s athleticism. He’s so much more of a Brady athlete (Though he
doesn’t run like Marsha from the Brady Bunch:). He learned on the bench
and in practice for a few years, and was a one-year superstar his senior
season in the SEC.
So I’m buying the Mac
Jones to San Fran pick. I’m a Mac Jones guy. In fact, I was the first to
put him in the 1st. I compared him to cross between Brady and Joe Burrow.
They both paid their dues than came out of nowhere to completely dominate
the SEC and the FBS Playoffs. Brady being the master and Burrow

the young aspiring
Burrow, Mac sees all that chaos swirling though the Defense and it makes
sense to him. He fits the system. He can sit behind Garoppolo for a year,
and step in a season or two.
Panthers are Des-Per-Ate
for a QB or two. They ain’t got nothin’ without a
legit young QB to develop. Much to my chagrin, Jones is soaring up the
charts like Brady in Tampa. This is a disaster for the Pats. Now we are
talking about Trask or Peyton Ramsey to develop (I know, no one cares about
Pats Fans whining;).
The Panthers are as desperate
for a QB as the Pats. The good news for them is that Mac Jones is
Kentucky: Jones was very
underrated. He throws a very catchable ball. Good leader. He has taken on
more leadership as the season has gone on, and excelled. He was the scout
team QB for a couple of year. He’s so good at looking off the Defense. Then
going across the field to the RB swinging out on the opposite side and
hitting him fast.
Is he a 1st round pick.
That was really his only question. He’s a one-year wonder who was
spectacular this year. Excellent footwork in the pocket. Technician. He
easily rolls to one side. Then turns back and throws to the opposite side
in a misdirection play. Very impressive. Throws with excellent eyes, touch
and ball placement.
Excellent footwork in the
pocket. Top flight work ethic that shows up in games with
his great mechanics, footwork, and mastery of the playbook.
He easily rolls to one side. Then turns back and throws to
the opposite side on the misdirection play. Very impressive.
Throws with excellent eyes, touch and ball placement. Elite
throwing deep while waggling to his right.
He throws it to a lot of different targets. He can get to
his 2ndoption off the play action. Tough kid who can lower
his head on 3rd and 1 and get the 1st. He’s so good at anticipating
patterns and throwing infront of the WR to the catch point.
Leads and places the ball so the WR doesn’t have to stop running
as well as anyone in this Draft. Great knack for putting the
ball where the WR has to run to it. A bit of a one-year wonder,
but I think he’s the real deal. Like Brady he was under appreciated
for three seasons. Then when they put him in, all’s he did
He can throw it quick when the rush forces them into more of a
West Coast passing game. Runs a nice play action. Then a bullet to his
Number One WR on the slant. I have been so impressed with him this season.
He’s leading the Alabama offense to be as good, fast, and dynamic as any
offense in the FBS. Unrated. Smart as anyone. Absorbs information like
sponge on the ocean floor. Translates that information to the field.
He’s seamless in the
two-minute drive. Love the way he runs outside to the right like he is
going to scramble, and right before he crosses the LOS, he slows and tosses
it over the DBs charging him to the WR. He always seems in control. Smart.
Tough. Can take a beating and keep on ticking. Calm, cool, and collected.
Hits that would make me cry, don’t seem to affect him. Clutch. Pressure
does affect him. Best player in the FBS Play Offs.
From The Mother Of All Mocks… “The Patriots cannot continue to operate a
viable Franchise until they have a QB. Mac Jones is an underrated winner,
because he’s a bit of one-year wonder (he also played well in 2019). But
damn, what a one year. He’s down at the Senior Bowl right now winning the
starting QB role for the game. He’s so smart, football smart. He gets it.
He reminds me of Brady. Brady was stuck on the bench his
first three years at Michigan. Finally got to start as a Senior, and won
the Rose Bowl. Mac has a similar story. He was the mop-up boy for Tua for
two or three seasons. It was finally his team last year, and like Brady’s
one season as the Man in Michigan, he just kept winning.
Like Brady, when he drops back the swirling chaos the
Defense is trying to create? It just makes sense to him. Playing QB is not
about quick feet and running. It’s about being quick-brained, and finding
the one open guy or open space to throw into. No one did it quicker than
Mac last year.
No one threw with anticipation better than Mac. No one threw
into an open spot his WR could run to better than Mac. No one led a WR
better than Mac leading Smith deep outside. And once Waddle was injured,
you could no longer blame his success on just his great WRs. He had one
Just like Brady never got credit for what he did at
Michigan., neither did Mac at Alabama. Neither dudes’ a great athlete who’s
going to run for a fortune. But that is not the definition of a QB. The
definition of a QB is a dude who throws it to win it. That describes both
to a T. Neither are great scramblers. Neither are going to win a 40-yard
dash outside. But both can run smart. Can move in the pocket to create
time, and throw on the move a little.
Both are smart runners, who can make the smart plays with
their feet as a last resort. Both can make the great throws running outside
the pocket to their right. Both have excellent arms, but not elite arms.
But most importantly, when the Head Coach actually dared to put them in
games? Alls they did was win efficiently…”

2nd Choice: Trade Pick
Pick 4. From Atlanta to
(QB, CB, LB, OT, TE, NT, CB, IDL, RB, DB, FS, Edge, TE, LB, IDL, OL,):
Trey Lance- 6-4, 225, QB, North Dakota, #5-
This is the first nexus of this draft. Atlanta is in an
odd spot. They don’t seem to want to grab a young QB here, to ensure the
future of the Franchise. They want to help Ryan, who they think can give
them a shot or two at the Super Bowl. Which makes sense, if they like a
QB later in the Draft like Trask or Mills (I have moved Mills way up
after watching some Tape, he ain’t getting’ out of the 2nd Round and he
kind-da reminds me of Ryan). Ryan will give a young Day Two or Three QB a
year or two to learn.
Which means they have to trade this pick. This pick is a
massive asset with Lance and Fields still on the Board. Even with Pitts
and Chase available here, it would be a crime against the future of the
franchise to not trade this pick.
In this scenario, the Broncos give up a few 1sts to trade
up here. No one knows the value of a QB more than Elway.
Lance is the small
school guy, but he also is the youngest QB in this Draft. Massive upside,
He’s still 20 years old. He can run. Great arm. Can run an Offense.
Smart. Doesn’t just understand schemes, he wrote up game plans for his
Coach. Always seems calm, cool, and collected. Has the temperament.
He can throw on the run. He understands scheme and can
write up game plans. His HC has him write up half the Game plan each
week. He has been better mentally trained than the other QBs in this
Draft. He also has protype size, and is taller than Fields, Wilson, and
I watched him against Central Arkansas the more he impressed me. I like
his accuracy and touch. He throws well throw off platform, but more often
runs. He is a great runner. Big, fast, and strong. He has that flare for
running in space. He’s fast and tricky running in space.

Key F.A. Lost:
He has some
remarkable talent. Smartest QB in this Draft. The NDSU head coach’s system
put more pressure on him mentally than any other QB in this Draft. He was
required to break down the film of their opponent. Each day breaking down a
different unit, blitzes one day, coverage the next, etc.
Then he received half the game plan each week, and had to
complete it. Shame he played in a one game season last year. He would have
taken some big strides this year like Mahomes did his senior season. He’s
also the youngest QB in this Draft, and has the least experienced. Which
could help him learning the Shanahan’s system. This pick seems to be the
most logical for Shanahan.
From The Mother Of All Mocks… “While the young pup, with maybe with the most (or 2nd
most;) upside in the Draft is waiting in the shadows. I cannot seem to
repeat this enough, he didn’t have a turnover as a Freshman in his one full

He has a
great strong arm, but can struggle to control it early in games. When he
gets his feet under him, and his footwork is tight, he can throw the play
action pass to the spot where only his WR can catch it. He is so good on
the move. He can run play action. make one guy miss in the pocket, hop
through a guy diving at his feet, and hit his WR with a perfect pass. He
might be the only QB in this Draft I’ve seen do that. He moved his feet
much better in the pocket this season. He can move up in the pocket, and
make a rusher miss by stepping up and climb the pocket. Then fire a blazer
to his WR. He still tends to throw high early in games. His excitement can
cause him to throw high early in games. When he takes off running, he is
fast and deadly scampering through the Defense.

5. Cincinnati Bengals-
(OLT, WR, CB, LB, TE, NT, IOL, OL, Edge, DB, CB, WR, TE, RB, FS, DT, DB,):
*Ja’Marr Chase- 6’ 3/8”, 201, 4.38 (PD)! 3.98 SS, 41” Vert! 11’ Broad! WR, LSU-
This is the toughest pick in the Draft (besides the
1st pick;). This looks like the next nexus point. The point where the
Draft turns from the QBs to the guys that help the QBs. But do they take
the WR, the TE, or the OLT?
The next three picks are by teams that could all
desperately use Chase, Penei and Pitts. Penei here makes for the easiest
Mock. I learned too late that if Chase goes here instead of Penei, it
ruins the next 3 or 4 picks.
This is so tough. Which is a better way to help a
young QB, to get the best WR to in the Draft in a decade or more, or to
get the best Left Tackle in the Draft? I suppose the question answered
itself. I love Sewell as a prospect, but he’s not the best to play at his
position in the Draft in the past ten years.
The Bengals could take Pitts here, and no one could
complain (though idiots always do;). However, they should surely take
Penei here. They have to get a Left Tackle to protect his back. It was
that lack of protection that ended his season last year. Penei would also
add immensely to the run game. However, I have to go with the comfort
level of Burrow and Chase.
Chase just tested out at his Proday as maybe the most
athletic and explosive WRs ever. Plus, he lived up to that level when
Burrow was throwing him the ball. Reuniting those two could turn the
Bengals into an instant contender to make the playoff and maybe win their
Chase is a remarkable physical talent. Astonishing
physical gifts, with stunning size, speed, Vert measurables. Great route
runner. Best ball skills in this Draft. Speed and suddenness in pattern
make him impossible to cover. Top explosion in cuts make him instantly
open. Explosive leaps to go up over the rim and snag the ball where CBs
can’t reach, react too, or find, make him uncoverable.
He was a little shorter and his arms were a little
shorter than expected. But that’s it. Otherwise, he was the most
impressive athlete at any Proday to date in this Draft, and that includes

Pitts put up in Florida. To
have a better day than Pitts had at his, is one of the biggest compliments
I have ever given to a prospect.
The fact that their
struggling young QB was made the top pick in last year’s Draft was
immensely helped by Chase in their record breaking 2019 season, makes this
the only pick. They could surely use a left tackle. They have Jonah
Williams and Reiff, who can hopefully hold down the fort. They will also
have a chance to snag another Left tackle in the 2nd.
Instant chemistry. Instant
familiarity. Instant knowledge of each other’s strength and weaknesses.
Instant symmetry. Instant recognition of patterns and how they both like
them run. Chase and Burrow combined put up two of the best statistical
seasons ever, which led to an LSU Championship. Chase is big, strong, fast,
explosive, and unstoppable when Burrow gets hot. Explosive in pattern and
off the ground. Top acceleration in pattern. Can get open instantly.
Chase had maybe the best season a WR ever had in 2019.
1,780 yards and 20 TDs on 78 receptions. This pick could make both players
stars next season. Protecting Burrow will still be the priority. But to see
these two guys together again will just be too tempting to pass, and ruin
Taken From The Mother Of
All Mocks… “Chase has the look of a true Number One WR. He was the
Biletnikoff winner, as the best WR in the FBS in 2019. Not: Henry Ruggs,
Jerry Jeudy, CeeDee Lamb, Jalen Reagor, Justin Jefferson, or Brandon Aiyuk.
It’s easy to forget a lot of the guys who opted out. But Chase was the
number one rated WR in this Draft before he opted out. Just watch the Tape.

LSU HC Ed Orgeron said. "Jimmy and Toleah
[his parents] have done a great job of raising him and he has worked
extremely hard on and off the field to develop as a player. While also
becoming an outstanding leader for our team. He's very deserving of having
the opportunity to be the next LSU player to wear number 7. I know he will
do a great job of representing that number and all of those who have worn
the number 7 before him."

Great ball skills on the high fastballs that the DBs can’t make the great

2nd Choice: Kyle Pitts TE
6. Miami Dolphins-
(WR, LB, Edge, FS, NT, WR, OC, LB, Edge, LB, DL, RB, WR, Edge, CB, WR, OLB,):
Kyle Pitts- 6-5.5, 245,
(U) 4.44, 33 1/2”Arms,
22 Reps, 10’9”Broad! 4.3 SS, 3-C
7.12, TE, FLA, #84
This pick is
wicked tough. If Chase is off the Board, which is a best way to help a
young QB here? Get the best Tight End in the Draft in a decade or more,
or to get the best Left Tackle in the Draft? When I look at their depth
chart, I see defensive player. I mean, I’d have to rip Kyle Pitts from
their cold dead hands, but they don’t need a Tight End.
I suppose the
question answered itself. I love Sewell as a prospect. But he’s not the
best player at his position in the Draft in the past ten years (and I
unfortunately really liked Austin Jackson in last year’s Draft). Pitts is
the best offensive weapon left on the Board that could make Tua looking
like Brady throwing to Gronk. Pitts is that talented. He’s different than
Gronk, but has a lot of what makes Gronk so great. He has that knack for
bigger than the top WRs in this years and last year’s Drafts. But he runs
patterns like a WR. He has the size of a Tight End with the grace,
agility, and speed of a WR. Elite in pattern. Has the speed of a
topflight WR. A 4.44 Forty is as great a number for a TE, as Ruggs 4.27
was last year for a WR.
Pitts is a
phenomenal Receiver. He’s not just a Tight End. He’s a receiver who is as
near as good as Chase, but a hell of a better blocker. He might actually
have a bigger catch radius than Chase, and both play above the rim. He’s
certainly a better blocker. He’s a very underrated blocker.
He struggled in
the SEC Champ game against Alabama, but then came through in the 4th
quarter. Then he broke inside on Slant and got FLA down to the one. They
score to get within a TD in the 4th, again. They doubled him all game. He
gets double triple and held all game. He got the PI late against Alabama,
and it got them over midfield late in the 4th. He had the elite catch,
high above the rim and DB, late in the SEC Champ game to get them within
doubled him to death the whole 1st quarter. They clearly saw him as the
key to stopping their Offense, but it opened up a lot of opportunities for
his WRs. Then he started breaking open in the 2nd. Great route Savvy.
Consistently breaks open inside, outside, over the top, and underneath it
all. Works hard on his craft.

Key F.A. Lost:
He can sky up
high for the pass, with the DB on his back almost straggling him, and pull
in the TD pass. He’s such a great weapon. He has the speed of a WR, the
size of a power forward, and the ball skills Gronk. He took a wicked
vicious cheap shot going over the middle against Georgia. Game matters to
him. Tough. Smart. Competitor. Clutch.
He’s a legit
TE. Just great leaping up and snagging the high pass down the sideline. He
can leap up over the CB in front of him and grab it over his reach.
Phenomenal athlete, ball skills, and receiver. Great 3rd Down weapon. Makes
his QB better in big situations. Great acceleration in pattern, and can
maintain his speed through the catch.
Kentucky: Dude is back. After he was concussed
by a massive cheap shot. He came back against Kentucky and as FLA was
struggling, he suddenly caught bomb 21-yards down the Seam. Then ran
another 35-yards for the 56-yard TD. Man! It was good to see him back. I
was worried if he could get all the way back after that vicious concussion.
And he sure did. Elite size-speed ratio. Great long arms and Vert make him
impossible to cover. Soft hands.
He ran a
great weaving outside-in pattern down the Seam for a 56-yard TD, his first
of the game. He has WR speed downfield. He can get open over the top of the
DB, with a great fake outside and a sudden burst inside. Can run pattern
with explosive cuts, bursts and acceleration, like a WR. Best top end speed
for a TE I’ve seen.
hands out to catch the ball away from his body. Then accelerates away from
the DB. Elite ball skills. Catch the high fast ball in places DBs can’t
even pretend to touch. They love him to block on the Edge, so the RB can
get outside. They scheme him on the Edge in the run game. Not going to plow
a DT, but he can take out the DE or OLB to give the RB or QB the edge to
run free outside. Top offensive weapon in this Draft.
consistently makes the first guy miss after the catch. Knows where the
marker is and how to get there. After he came back from the Concussion, DBs
are just grabbing him and holding on. Runs like Gronk after the catch (and
that is the best compliment I can give a TE as a Pats Fan;). He has vise
grips for hands. Trask threw him one from the five, and he extended his
hands all the way away from his body. Then clampdown on the ball for his
second TD catch against Kentucky, to make a great comeback from concussion
in fake outside. Then twists inside like a spinning top to get wide open.
They will line him up outside like a WR, and run a WR screen behind him
because he is a great blocker in space. He can completely block the DB on
the screen until the whistle. Very sticky blocker of the little guys in
space, which a lot of TEs can struggle with.
killing FLA in the 1st half, he suddenly had three TDs to put FLA up 21
points after three. The third TD was an elite athletic spin back move for
the easy TD. He gets open easier and quicker than any TE in this Draft.
Kentucky: Became the first Gator
since Taylor Jacobs (2002) with three games of two-plus receiving
touchdowns in the same season... One of eight SEC players since the start
of 2000 with multiple games of three receiving touchdowns in a season...
Pitts’ 11 receiving touchdowns this season (through the Kentucky game) are
the most touchdown catches in a season by any Gator since Jabar Gaffney had 13 in 2001... Pitts’ 11 touchdown
catches (through the Kentucky game) are two more than 2019’s FBS leaders
for receiving touchdowns by a tight end... Pitts’ 56-yard touchdown
reception in the first quarter against Kentucky was the 82nd reception of
his career, tying Kirk Kirkpatrick (1987-90) for the second-most career
receptions by a tight in school history... Pitts passed Kirkpatrick with
his second catch of the day, a 12-yarder from Kadarius Toney in the third
quarter against Kentucky.

2nd Choice: Ja’Marr Chase WR
Pick 7. From Detroit to
THE New England
(QB, OT, WR, WR, DB, DB, DT, Edge, Slot WR, TE, LB, DT):
Fields- 6-2 3/4", 227, (U) 4.44, QB, OSU, #1-
This is a tough one for
the Pats. They HAVE to get a young QB in this Draft. They will
have to sacrifice some picks. It would be better to trade up to pick 10,
but there is a lot more risk. Trading up to 7 will give them a QB, Fields
in this scenario, but it will cost them some picks. Which they can afford
to give up now, after Free Agency.
It will start with picks
15 and 46 (and Maybe 96), and next year’s 1st. Which will put a big hole
in the middle of their Draft. BB doesn’t like that. However, they have a
3rd (96) and four 4th round picks (120, 122, and 139). So they could
trade up from 96 and maybe move up from pick 122 as well, and move up to
fill the vast chasm between pick 7 and 96.
Though I don’t think it
really matters. Belichick had a historic Free Agent haul this off season.
Which minimally moved them up from the worst skill position players in
50-years, to the top half of skill position players in the NFL (but they
could still use a true Number One WR).
The good news for the
Pats is that they had a great defense last year. They went old school
last season, winning with defense and the run game. But they sure shored
up the Offense with free agents this off season, and picked up some
interesting receiving targets to go along with Jakobi Meyers, for
They did a great job
snagging some top Free Agent fill in their terrible Offense, with TE
Hunter Henry and H-Back Jonnu Smith, WR Nelson Agholor and slot guy
Kendrick Bourne (though I don’t think either one is a true Number-1 WR),
and trading for Trent Brown and resigning David Andrews to put their
O-line back together again.
I mean… Cam Newton just
got a whole lot better. So if they trade the middle of their Draft
(picks 15, 46, and next year’s 1st)? It’s not as big deal as it normally
would be, because of the impact free agents they picked up. These free
agents will start. They won’t be rookies learning the NFL this season.
This doesn’t leave a lot
of holes left to fill in their terrible Offense. Huh… I mean… besides a
young QB. Cam can now win games with impunity, as they won’t have next
year’s 1st, and Fields can develop for a year or two.
They also had some great
pickups on defense. I was a big fan of Anderson and Judon in the Draft.
Getting Van Noy was a big pick up to me, instant fill. Also grabbing two
LBs Raekwon McMillan and LaRoy Reynolds (and Judon), take away a large
part of the need for Micah Parsons (which was the strongest reason to
stick at pick 15).
So, this is not the same
team that lined up last season on any unit. They are better everywhere on
both sides of the ball. Even Cam, if he just doesn’t get Covid and hurt
his knee again, he will be better. Plus, picking up Fields here will push
him competitively, and give a viable option if he gets hurt or sick
And I must admit that I’d
like to see some four TE formations with Asiasi, Keane and Jonnu and
Henry. They can have so many creative formations to run and pass out of
with Cam at QB.

Indiana: Fields was constantly improving last season at a
noticeable rate. Which is impressive if you watch him in 2020. People seem
down on him because of his performance against Indy. It makes me wonder if
they watched the game? I loved what he did against Indiana. He took a
physical and mental beating, got up, and won the game. One problem with
Fields is that he plays on one of the most talented teams in the FBS. So
how much is him, and how much is the team? He often surfed through games on
the wave of OSU talent.
That didn’t happen against
Indy. OSU didn’t look like the undisputed most talented team in that Game.
Fields struggled. But he won. He sucked early in the 1st half. Then pulled
it together to take the lead at Halftime. Then Indy came back, with help
from Fields. Then Fields came back and won. He showed he could win ugly. He
could fight and claw out a victory. He threw three INTs, and still won the
game. Undisputed second best QB in this Draft, in my eyes, after the Indy
"It was throwing
(instead of running) believe or not? That he came in as a dual-threat
Meyer said. “He was a runner that threw very well. Now, he is a
quarterback that just happens to be Braxton Miller fast (and) is as
electric of a runner as Braxton was.
"You have a Braxton
Miller athlete that throws like a Dwayne Haskins. And if that's possible,
you're talking about arguably… I know Trevor Lawrence is there and Kyle
Pitts from Florida, who I personally think is the best non-quarterback
player in America, you're talking about the best player in America. If he
can actually do what I'm hearing he can do, there's no stopping this guy.”
Nebraska: Calm. Cool, and collected. Shrewd and was
in complete control of the Offense against Nebraska. He’s so good at
rolling outside and throwing a dart to his WR on the
3rd level. Strong accurate arm. What impressed me the most was he
learned how to take a little off this off season and throw with some touch
and not just rocket after rocket. Which also lead to better
accuracy leading WRs and so they can run after the catch. He is
anticipating placement better. Great throwing on the move. Tough. Evolving.
Intelligent. Elite athlete.
He can really throw a beautiful ball. He
threw a soft perfect pass on a Corner route to Olave. He can put it on the
hands of his WR in the Endzone from the 43 and place it perfectly
in his WR’s hands (and if you saw the Nebraska game you
know the ball bounced out of Olave’s hand
when the CB took his legs out and he bounced off the turf). But no QB threw
a more beautiful pass than that. I don’t think he could make that throw
He reshaped his body in the off season. He
can still throw a dart rolling out to his right. His arm seems stronger. He
will throw too high to WR on 2nd level. He still wants to run too much when
things break down. When he throws fast, he has a great accurate fast ball.
His arm looked strong and more accurate so far this season. He can put it
right over the shoulder of his WR 40-yards downfield on the Post.
Very slippery and elusive running around the
pocket. I hate when he runs, but man is he fast. He runs with the kind of power
that makes me nervous. The only thing I hate more is when he sneaks it.
Give it to the RB and let his head take the beating. He is fighter with the
ball in his hands. Tough. Agile. Stronger than he looks. Great balance.
Seeing it quicker. Throwing it faster.
Playing with better touch and accuracy. He was a pure fast-baller last
season. He has shown he can throw the change up that makes for the softer
and easier catch. He was as perfect as you can be in the 1st half
against Nebraska. He had one incompletion. Then he unveiled a spin
move into the End zone on a scramble. Last year he would have lowered his
head and tried to bash his brain into the End zone. He is getting better
Taken From The Mother Of
All Mocks… “Phenomenal athlete. He’s the most athletic QB in this
Draft. Phenomenally strong arm. Can make all the throws. Terrific throwing
deep. Top velocity and is learning to throw with more touch. Improving
touch. Constantly improving field vision. Smooth in drop. Can read the
mismatch at the line and take advantage.
“He can catch the low and outside shotgun snap to his right,
on the move outside, and look up and complete the pass on the 2nd or 3rd
step. Great improvisational skills. He can take heat off his fastball to
the TE over the middle. Which is important, because he didn’t throw a lot
of off-speed pitches before this season. The more he can throw with touch,
anticipation and softness, the better…” Read

2nd Choice: Trey Lance QB
Pick 8. From Detroit to
(QB, LB, OT, Edge, DB, TE, OC, DL, OT, IOL, CB, WR, OL, DB,):
*Penei Sewell- 6-4, 331, 33.25” Arm, 30 Reps! OLT, Oregon-
The trade for Darnold
was a good deal for the Pats. This deal gives the Pats two shots at trading
up for a QB. They can try Detroit at 7 or this pick by the Panthers. I like
the symmetry of the Pats trading 15 and a 2nd, 4th and 6th (they’ll have to
throw in next year’s 1st as well). Then the Panthers could say they got
Darnold for just a trade down.
But I get the feeling
that they will have to go to 7, and deal with Patricia’s old team. Moving
up from 15 to Detroit’s pick will cost them more than just a bag of magic
Day Three picks. They would want the Pats 2nd this year and next year’s 1st
to start. The Pats are not going to get into position to get Fields or
Lance without it.
Meanwhile, the Panthers
can just sit here, after picking up Darold, and take the best player
available to help Darnold. The entire front office job security is on
Darnold’s shoulder. Fortunately for them, the top Left Tackle in this
Draft is sitting here waiting for them.
Sewell is the most
athletic Left Tackles I have seen in a decade. Elite football character.
He’s so smooth moving back in his kickslide. You cannot beat him outside
as he angles back. Suburb feet moving backwards in mirror. Heavy hands.
Heavy puncher. Once his hands are in shirt, he doesn’t just win he throws
DLs to the ground. Great puncher, feel for position, and agility.
Elite feet. Can redirect
in an instant with his great balance and COD. Sudden and powerful moving
backwards. Elite mirror in kickslide. Blows up rushers who try to break
inside of him. Monstrous blocking down inside on DTs. He can knock them
sideways past the OC with impact, feet churning, and toughness and
Has the size. Looks the
part. Great hand technique. Keeps hands high, and slams them into rushers
to stuff them. Plays with hands and feet working in unison and balance.
Nice agility to get low and match speed moving backwards. Can sink hips
and hit with power. Shocks rushers.
His arms are a little
short for an OLT, but not unpresented. Lacks some
Not a lot of starts. Took year off due to Covid. He should get better
quickly just gaining experience and playing in Preseason games.
Penei should be a plug and play starter
at Left Tackle after the Preseason. He’s all upside. Top OL in this
Draft. Another top five talent that will go later because of the
incredible depth created by the opt outs due to covid and the five
Quarterbacks. His arms are a little short for a Left Tackle. But he’s so
good at staying low, positioned and leveraged and mirroring the
Edgerusher. Then slamming him up with both hands and stuffing the rush in
an instant. Heaviest hands in the draft.
Taken From The Mother Of All Mocks… “Penei looks like a generational Left
Tackle. He’s an athlete of rare proportions. Guys his size just aren’t as
athletic as he is. Elite feet. Impossible to beat to the outside. Amazing
athlete who can swim over the DE, with great power and quicks, and is fast
enough to get outside infront of the WR on the bubble screen. Impossible
size, speed, power athlete…” Read More: Free On Amazon Prime.

Pick 9. From Denver to
(QB, Edge, CB, NT, LB, CB, OG, FS, RB, DL, QB, DB, OLB)-
*Micah Parson- 6-3, 244, (PD) 4.39-4.41! 6.89
3-Cone! 10’6” Broad!
34” Vert, 19 Reps, LB, Penn
If the Falcons really
don’t want to snag one of the five QBs? Then they really are in the best
position in the Draft. They are in perfect position to get a king’s
ransom for the 4th pick and one of the five QBs. Then pick up one of the
top two or three defenders. Parson is in the conversation as the top
defender in this Draft. Surtain, Horn, and Parson are my top three
Falcons have to get an LB
to help their Defense. They can trade down a lot and still pick up more
picks. They need an OLB, an Edge, and a CB or two. They filled DB needs,
now they need an LB and some help in the rush.
Parson is the best OLB in
this Draft. Phenomenal character, intelligence, athlete, competitor, and
LB. He’s an off the ball LB that has that money making knack for hitting
the quarterback. Superb athlete: instant, electric, sudden, aggressive.
Fastest LB in the Draft. Getting a 4.3 next to his name at his Proday was
He has the speed and explosion
to get anywhere he wants on the field. It is all eyes for him. When he
reads it right, he blows things up. Plays downhill. Superb striker.
Tackles through ball carriers. Shocks blockers with his speed and hands.
Instant impact hitter. Explosion numbers show up when he tackles through
dudes. Makes blockers overreact and opens holes for teammates.
Excellent awareness in
coverage. When he sees it or reads it, he’s at the spot in an instant. No
one covers more ground to find the ball than he does. Explosive moving
forward to the QB. Can explode through traffic to hit the ball carrier in
the backfield. Most dynamic LB in this Draft. Stunning athlete.
Nice hand fighter turning
the corner to wind back to the QB. Nice job blocking the OLT on the
stunt. Then chasing the QB out of bounds when they are flushed by the stunter. Impressive on
field speed. Dude can move like no LB I ever saw. He ran between a 4.39
and 4.41 at his Proday.

Most versatile LB in this
Draft who can dominate at any position. I mean, he has the speed, quicks, and
smarts to play DB and cover any position. Fearless, flawless, phenomenal
athlete. Elusive blitzer with that knack. I though he was an Edge when I
first watched him. Terrific blitzer from 2nd level. Elite speed rusher from
the Edge. Hurts QBs in more ways than any other LB in this Draft.
From The Mother Of All Mocks… “Parsons was great in 2019. He was a true
Penn State Linebacker. Great against the run. Underrated against the run.
But he was also great in coverage. He’s smart, explosive, and aware in a
zone. Can cover the TE and RB out of the backfield. He’s also a great
blitzer. He is not really an Edge, but an OLB who has that knack for
hitting the quarterback.
Explosive moving forward. Startles RBs and QBs moving
forward. Special player and athlete. He will go earlier than an OLB has
gone in a while. Great as the Mike. Great blitzer right up the gut from the
Mike. Vicious hitter who can de-cleat and nearly de-capitate the ball
carrier in the backfield.
He wore number 11 at Penn State, which is the number of
honor at PSU. Great production. He had 10 or more tackles in three straight
games (twice), and incredibly in six of the final seven games of 2019.

(QB! CB, OLT, DT, FS, Edge, LB, NT, OL, CB, OLB, DB, TE, DEFENSE,):
*Patrick Surtain- 6-2, 208, (PD) 4.42, 10’11” Broad!
39” Vert! CB, Alabama, #2-
Cowboys have to get a CB
to help their Defense. Surtain is the best in this Draft. Phenomenal
character, intelligence, athlete, competitor, and CB. If Surtain drops
this far, this would be a phenomenal steal for the Cowboys. After signing
their QB, this shutdown Corner would be the most important move they make
this Off Season.
Surtain is an instant
impact Defender. Shutdown SEC CB! Great smooth feet. He makes it look easy.
Lockdown CB. Laser focused on his assignment. Miss most of the game
covering the Number One WR. He is glue on the Goalline. Shits down the
QB’s right in the Redzone.
Tough as nails. He can
play Safety, because he is so tough. But he is the toughest shutdown QB
in this Draft. Instant hips. Typewriter feet. Phenomenal moving
backwards. Elite jam. He can stop the route in one step. Best Press CB to
come out in a while. Generational talent.
Has rough and tough game.
The More I watch him the more I like him. Terrific swivel hips. He can
turn and run as sudden as anyone. When he is locked on he cannot be
Terrific in Press.
Physical in pattern. Looks like a Free Safety moving back always eyeing
the QB. Elite feet. Top size-speed-athletic CB in this Draft. Which is
saying something with Surtain, Farley (though he is injured) and Newsom.
Teams don’t like to line
up WRs on his side. When they motion to the other side he drops back and
zones. He’ll cover the RB as well. Lines up in nice tight press on short
yardage. He can get to the RB when he breaks through the line on short
yardage. He is a big Corner. Plays like a FS..

From The Mother Of All Mocks… “He was great against Auburn. If you watch
that tape, you’d think he’s the best CB in the Draft. He’s right up there
with Farley and Surtain. But he did not play that well consistently.
He will grab and get called for the PI. Because he is so
physical, he easily gets over physical. Cat quick on 2nd level in Zone.
Great long arms. Knows how to jam the WR with his long arms. When he gets
beat by a double move, he grabs hold with all he’s got.
But when he’s good, he looks as good as any CB in this
Draft. He will not see the ball in the air sometimes. Better covering the
big WR. Small quick guys can give him trouble. He can rise up and tip the
high lob pass, above the rim, to the big WR. He can suffocate the WR in
coverage, but has terrible hands.
He’ll get the bad PI. Then knock down the pass on the next
3rd down. When he sees it, he can step infront of the WR and intercept it.
He has one career INT, he had against Auburn this year. It was a nice INT,
but that’s a little scary. He doesn’t play the ball well in the air. That
will hurt him more in the NFL. When NFL QB’s know he has bad hands? They
will exploit it…”

(WR, TE, RB, OL, CB, DL, OT, WR, OC,
Edge, LB, DE, IDL, OFFENSE,):
*Jaylen Waddle- 5-10, 182, WR, Alabama, #17-
Giants have to do everything
they can to help their young QB. Getting him a Weapon: WR, RB, Left
Tackle, OL, TE, etc. it doesn’t matter. They have to draft the players
that can help Daniel Jones be all that he can be. Whatever that position
is. All their jobs are now reliant upon Daniel Jones succeeding.
Like DeVonta Smith, when
Waddle got on the field he dominated. He’s a smaller, probably slot WR,
in the NFL. When he gets the ball in his hands, he is dynamic. Elite
remarkable, stunning speed! He’s more than field fast in the SEC. He
could get lost in the shuffle in the Draft this year, but he can play.
Elite acceleration pulling away from elite speed CBs in the SEC.
Most likely the fastest
guy in the Draft. He was a legit starter this year, before he got hurt.
He played fulltime like he did parttime a couple years ago. He will be a
1st Round pick. I tend to put slot guys higher than most, because of the
Patriots system. Waddle would be a killer in the Pats system.
He missed the 2nd half of
the season due to injury. What a tragedy. He was running to the sideline
and the defender tackled him and rolled his ankle to an angle that broke
it. Just as he was producing in a dynamite season.
Best pure speed WR in
this Draft. But he is not just a speed dude. He can run patterns to get
open as well. Instantly impacts special teams. Multi-dimensional threat
that can hurt an opponent in a lot of ways. He can make guys miss with
great laterally burst. Can weave through defenders changing directions.
Underrated running patterns. Can sharp cuts to break open.

A bit of a body catcher.
Not a lot of experience. Light and slight. Didn’t stand up last year.
One-year wonder. Doesn’t make the best adjustment to bad throws behind him
Takes the top off a defense
like an electric can opener. Superb acceleration. He can make the explosive
breaks to get open outside against top SEC CBs. Then accelerate away from
them by yards with a top end speed no one can meet. Great short area quicks
to make guys miss after catch. Great quicks and lateral bursts on screens.
Great Vert to leap up over the WR and catch the ball over his head. Gives
good effort blocking. Will block on 2nd and 3rd levels in run game. Not
super strong, but will get in the way and grab shirt. Knows where the
marker is and can get to the spot.
From The Mother Of All Mocks… “Love the way he runs pattern to speed.
Instant impact player who is as deadly in punt returns as anyone in last
year’s Draft. He’s great at making the first guy miss on punt returns. He
will weave too much sometimes, and not use his speed to find a lane. But
that is nitpicking. And when he does find a lane he’s gone.
He will let the high fastballs fly through his hands
sometimes. Got injured missed the end of the season. He runs great patterns.
Explodes out of cuts and breaks like a rocket. He can get open running
patterns. Creates great separation in breaks. Then adds to the separation
with his speed. Untouchable in the open field.
A stone-cold killer on Punt returns. If he makes the first
guy miss, there’s no angle he can’t break down. And when he turns upfield,
he’s the Roadrunner. His quick and deadly stop and lateral moves make his
speed so much more devastating on returns and to defenders…”
