12. Philadelphia Eagles-

(WR, OL, TE, LB, RB, CB, OT, DB, LB, QB, Edge, FS, OG, DB, OC,):

DeVonta Smith- 6-1, 170, WR, Alabama, #6

Philly is another team with some QB problems. They had to trade Carson Wentz, with his big money extension kicking in, he was too much for their Cap. So now Jalen Hurts is their starting and cheap QB. But he needs help.

He’s young! So they better get him some guys who can make him look good. They picked up three good ones in the last Draft. I really liked Reagor and Watkins, and thought Hightower would be alright. But he still needs help.

The best way to help a young QB is get a guy he can throw too fast. No one gets open faster off the snap than Smith. Instant in release. Gets open in two steps. Smooth and explosive. Long-legged athlete who accelerates away from DBs like the Roadrunner. Most deceptive speedster in the Draft.

Smith is one of my favorite WRs in this Draft. Ultra-thin, but taller than he looks and has ostrich legs. Underrated deep speed to get over the top of DBs. Ultra-tough. Wiry strong. Clutch and unstoppable in FBS Play-Offs.

He reminds me of Antonio Brown. Only without the chaos. He has become a star. On a team with some elite WRs, he has taken over as the best. He has shown a knack for catching TDs in the Mississippi and A&M games. Phenomenal speed in pattern. Great slot WR. Smart. Instant. Sudden.

He was moved outside in 2020. Played in the Slot a lot. Can be unstoppable when he’s hot. Great quick hands snapping up to snag high fast ball. Effortless hands. Won the Heisman with one of the best statistical seasons I’ve seen: 1,856 yards and 23 TDs, on 117 catches. Better than Ja’Marr Chase in 2019!

He’s so fast to the 2nd level from the Slot. He’s so good at exploding back, sideways, and up field to catch the off pass. Elite route runner. Elite ball skills. Elite understanding of game, scheme, and running patterns. It’s amazing how he can get open by yards from the Slot, in the Redzone. Great speed in pattern. When he’s on, he can hurt a team all game long. Slick and fast in pattern. Nice job coming back for the pass and walling the CB out with his body. Likes to hop and jump up to catch the ball. I’d like to see him body catch less and catch everything with his hands. Became a super star in the FBS Playoffs.

Notes Vs. Notre Dame: He killed ND. He embarrassed their secondary. His TD in the 3rd quarter of the Playoff game, was the third nail in their coffin. He destroyed their secondary to lead Alabama to the win, and a shot at the National Championship. Clutch. Deadly. Explosive release. When he gets hot, he’s somethin’ to see.

It’s amazing how it appears the DB has the angle, and he just explodes forward to full speed and the DB can’t even touch him. Elite top speed. Elite SEC CBs just cannot stay with his explosive cuts, elite acceleration after the catch, and top speed. He just takes the angles away from the DBs and runs around them with stunning consistency.

If there is no QB the Pats like at their pick, they have to take this guy. He’s a small slot like WR that fits their system perfectly. He can make a guy miss with speed outside and turn upfield for the TD. Great acceleration after the catch. Great coming back for the ball. Flies past fast DBs in the slot. Top Slot guy in this Draft.

Amazing sinking his hips, changing direction, and leaving the CB in the dust. He’s a rocket blasting off after the catch. Elite acceleration after the short pass. 4 Targets, 4 receptions, for 93-yards and 2 TDs, before he got injured at the end of the 2nd quarter in Semi-Champ Game. Unbelievable. I mean… scored 24 TDs last season!

Taken From The Mother Of All Mocks. “Poise, balance, and grace. Great returner. Can change speeds in pattern. Speed is not an issue for him, though some think it is. Flawless soft hands. Snags the high fastball without adjusting his speed, stride, or body. Elite ball skills.  Has great game breaking ability on special teams.

“He’s instant off the line. Best release by a WR I ever saw in the Champ Game. He got open in two steps in the entire 1st Half, like no one I’ve ever seen. Rare explosion in pattern. He has a great burst outside in traffic in returns. He has a chance to score every time he touches the ball…”  Read More: Free On Amazon Prime.

2nd Choice: Christian Darrisaw OLT

 

13. Los Angeles Chargers:

(OLT, Edge! Edge! CB, FS, OG, WR, LB, TE, RB, Edge, OC, DL, OL, OT, WR,):

*Christian Darrisaw- 6-5, 314, Virginia Tech, OLT, #77-

The Chargers have a great young QB, who I had as the top rated between Burrow and Tua in last year’s Draft. Now they have to do everything they can to get guys who can help him be the best that he can be. The Chargers need a Left Tackle, and Justin Herbert needs a dude to protect his back even more. I don’t even know who Trey Pipkins is! Do you?

Darrisaw is a top athlete at Left Tackle. Top recovery skills. Can re-angle and re-anchor with arms extended. Wants for nothing athletically. V-Tech loves to run the ball and he has a lot of experience moving forward. Vicious cut blocker. Nice long arms. Powerful blocker at the point.

Great doubling the DT. Can turn him and power him back. They have him block the DT a lot. Very effective blocking down. He can clearly move inside to OLG if he can’t handle OLT in the NFL. Good power in run game. Adjusts instantly to pick up the blitzer. Very strong. Powerful run blocker.

Considered a 1st Round prospect by a lot of people. Great mover. His initial jump back in kickslide is so quick that he often opens up an inside lane. Needs to keep hands high and tight. Chicken wings his arms too much, and gets them way out wide. Trusts his upper body more than his elite feet. Terrific power blocker, with lean, on the Edge. Plays low and leveraged.

However, he seems to give his best hits when he stops, after he oversets, and the rushers tries to go inside. He slams the DE back to the LOS with some nasty. Keeps his hands out wide too much, might be balance. Needs to keep his hands high and tight. Isn’t asked to kickslide as often as you’d like to see.

Great dancer’s feet out in space. He can dance with the speed guys outside, but he’s so strong and powerful that they have him block down inside a lot, because he devastates 5-techs and DTs with his power blocks inside. He will get caught chasing the DL inside on stunts. Tough and aggressive in space.

Hops back a lot. They run a lot of trickeration and misdirection. Good sliding back in pass pro. Strong. Once he meets the DE, the rush is mostly done.

Slides way outside to cut off the blitzing DB with a smooth kickslide. He can

take out the outside blitzer in space and knock his block off. He can power the DLs inside and open a huge lane for his RB behind him. He can hold the OLB outside with one hand in the run game.

Taken From The Mother Of All Mocks “The theme of this Draft is if you ain’t got a QB you ain’t got SH!!! And Protect the QB, if you got one. If you need an OLT to protect your QB’s back, there is nothing more viable in the NFL Draft. First-QB. Second-OLT. Third-Defense. Darrisaw is a freak athlete. He’s amazing moving backwards. Good hands and technique.

He can get to the 3rd level and block the safety. Very impressive movement skills. He can meet the great speed rusher on the corner. Great burst inside to get inside the DT and seal him outside. Very impressive. Dude can move. Sudden and quick. Needs some work on his footwork. He has the feet, hips, and bend to kickslide like a pro…”

2nd Choice: Gregory Rousseau Edgerusher

 

14. Minnesota Vikings-

(DT, CB, WR, Edge, OT, FS, LB, DT, TE, CB, OC, OG, OL, FS, WR, OLB, DT, OT, QB,):

*Rondale Moore- 5-9, 180, 4.29 (O)! 42.5” Vert! 4.01 SS, WR, Purdue, Junior, #4-

The Vikings need to get a D-tackle or two, and Barmore is a giant temptation. But he is a bigtime boom or bust player. I think they will pass on him. I keep coming back to a WR, to help their QB. They have two big excellent outside WRs. Having a speed demon in the Slot would make this Offense unstoppable again. Cousins is not the best QB in the NFL. He needs receivers who can make him better, not visa versa.

Sometimes teams over think things, and sometimes they just take speed. Speed kills in the new NFL where you can’t touch WRs. Getting a WR who, if you cannot touch him, you cannot stop him, is a big deal in the NFL now a days.

Moore has some weave, explosion, and make you miss in his speed and astonishing feet. He’s lightning in a bottle. He’s a little too short to make me happy. But I saw him take some vicious head-hunting hits, and he gets up like nothing happened. Tough SOB! He also has explosive COD and is a dancer in pattern and with the ball in his hands. He cannot be covered in space.

“Rondale Moore is the first guy that stood out to me from Purdue, and when I look at Rondale Moore, I know he only measured in at 5-7, but man when you put down numbers in the 4.2 range and you have a vertical that is over 40 inches, you certainly like that,” Bucky Brooks said. “So even though he is a smaller player in stature, he plays big. Can I put him in the slot, can I use him in the run game, can I put him as a third-down back, what is the way to maximize Rondale Moore’s potential? He is one that stands out.”

Plays in the Slot. Impossible to cover with two-way go. Not just a speed demon, great quicks, bursts and COD to get open in pattern. Glides by fast guys with ease. He has that speed that kills, but doesn’t just rely on his speed. He knows how to run patterns to get open. His 4.01 in the Short Shuttle shows that he’d be great in the Slot. Fearless getting open over the middle.

I think his 4.29 has to put him in the 1st. He’s small and thin, but he’s tough. SEC DBs purposely tried to hurt him with heavy head shots that knocked his helmet off, because of his size. But he gets up after nasty hits and cheap shots and can get open on the next play and make the catch. Tough little dude who keeps getting up with attitude when hammered down. He’s not just pure speed, he has great explosion as well.

They like to run him short a lot, because of the space DBs have to give him, because they fear his speed. He’s open inside instantly and on little screens and outside curls whenever he wants. Elite Slot WR. Quick and explosive inside. Accelerates outside like a Corvette, to turn a step on a CB, into yards of separation outside and upfield.

Taken From The Mother Of All Mocks “Stunning quicks, acceleration and speed after the catch on slip screens to make two guys miss, including the CB lined up right infront of him in finesse Press. Amazing athlete in space. Most dynamic player in space in this Draft. Short, but squat with big thighs. Great speed down the seam from the slot, to open things up outside for the X and Z.

“He does a lot of things wrong. But damn he’s fast. Stunning athlete with the ball in his hands. Not just a pure straight-line speed guy. Amazing acceleration off the line. They get him the ball on jet sweeps, to just to watch his speed. They like to motion him out of the backfield. Might be the best space WR in this Draft. Small and is not going to win fights, but you can’t touch him in space…”

2nd Choice: Christian Barmore DT

TRADE:

Pick 15. From The Patriots to

The Detroit Lions:

(WR, OLB, CB, OT, DB, WR, OL, LB, Edge, WR, DT, QB, LB, WR, OL, RB, DE, CB, TE):

*Jaycee Horn- 6-1, 200, CB, Junior, South Carolina, #1-

The Lions are in a great spot at 7. It looks like a top spot to trade down and pick up an impact player. They traded out of pick 7 for a handful of picks, from what I think has become one of the most valuable spots in the Draft. If they decide not to draft a QB? Then they have to trade Pick Seven to a team that is desperate for a QB, like the New England Patriots.

Pats have to start negotiations to trade up to Pick four. There’s less than a 10% chance Lions pick at Seven. They can trade down, pick up a Day Two pick or two, and a future 1st, and still snag a WR later. This Draft is loading with WRs from top to bottom. Having WR as your top need is gold in this Draft.

They traded away their veteran winner, for a less talented and weaker armed QB. So they have to get some guys to help him. Goff is a system QB. He cannot do it himself. He needs a lot of help. This is a perfect drop-down spot. Teams should be calling them early and often.

However, Jaycee Horn should not still be on the Board! He’s one of the three players (Parsons and Surtain) who can lay claim to the title of Number One Defender in this Draft. I was not as high on him as most, and soon realized it was Mukuamu I didn’t like, and that I had dyslexized them.

Horn is as good, and in some ways better than, Surtain. This would turn into a steal for the Lions. Surtain is more of a pure shutdown Corner and much better against the run. While Horn has more versatility to cover in the slot and over the top in a Zone like a FS. He’s just a beast in Press.

He has superb aggression in Press Man. Better, stronger, and tougher in Press Man than Surtain, which is really saying something. Great size, strength and speed for a CB. Instant COD in coverage. Understands scheme and can play in zone, but his money will be made in Press. Shut down Corner in Press man.

Cold be first Defender taken in this Draft. Dominates WRs physically. Physical enough to play Safety, but has uncommon hips, feet, speed and COD that would be wasted at safety. Excellent tackler. He uses his arms to perfection in Jam. Amazing quicks and flash moving backwards infront of the WR.

Playmaker, that makes QBs not want to throw too his side. Good not great hands. Plays in the Slot sometimes. Easy hips turning and cutting off slot WRs. Likes to peek back at the QB when the WR turns back to look at him. Amazing quicks to jam the outside WR. Then slip inside an shut down the Slot WR. He can look like he can do anything he wants on the field.

Sudden, instant, smooth and fast. Smart. Always seems in control. They line him up on one guy, and he hops out and covers another WR a lot. That is a nice scheme for a DC, and really confuses QBs. He’ll play over the top of Trips like a FS, and cover the one that goes deep. He can break up the pass to the deep WR easily.

16. Arizona Cardinals:

(Edge, CB, OG, WR, TE, DT, WR, RB, OC, OT, DT, Edge, CB, TE, LB,):

Greg Newsome- 6’, 192, (U) 4.38! 6.9 3-Cone, 18 Reps, 10’3” Broad, 4.26 SS,

CB, Northwestern, Jr, #2

This is not another tough one. They lost Patrick Peterson and need to pick up a guy who could develop into a Number One Corner. Lucky for they there’s a late riser who looked like a Number One CB last season. And he tested out like a top ten CB at his Proday.

He’s a superb athlete and shut down Corner, but doesn’t have the best ball skills or hands. He shuts guys down with position and Off man coverage skills. Excellent instincts and eyes. Knows what the WR is trying to do. Smart. Plays Off, and rarely gets called for a PI. Great feel for position.

Plays off a lot as well. Breaks forward with good burst when the WR breaks outside. Good job turning and retreating so he can see the WR and the QB. Great Vert to leap up and tip the pass that the QB tries to float over him.

Number One Corner at Northwestern, who almost always lined up on the QB’s right. Typewriter feet moving backwards. Can weave with speed infront of WR in pedal to slow him. Has some snap opening hips outside. Good feel for break point, and can meet WR when he breaks outside on Corner and Out routes.

Elite athlete who can cover the 4.2 guy outside without help, like he did against Purdue.

Doesn’t have ball skills. He has everything you want in a CB except ball skills. Gets in position a lot but will misplay the ball. Can look so bad trying to catch the INT that I wonder how he garnered his 1 career INT. Struggles to make

17. Las Vegas Raiders:

(DT, Edge, OT, LB, WR, TE, Edge, WR, DB, IOL, Edge, TE, LB, IDL, OL,):

Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah- 6-1 1/2”, 215, OLB/FS, Notre Dame, #6

Raiders don’t have a lot of needs left after a massive free agent haul. I loved Barmore here, but they picked up three veteran DTs. The best player on the Board is likely Owusu-Koramoah. Another elite defender who dropped because of the great depth in this Draft. Mayock Loves Notre Dame players.

It starts with the pass defense. Owusu-Koramoah is a terrific weapon for the Defense in the passing game. He is a smaller OLB who can affect the passing game in coverage and rushing. More the size of a Strong Safety. Needs to add weight.

“By the time quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei pitches the ball to running back Travis Etienne, Owusu-Koramoah is already at the 35, three yards away from Etienne… “It was a play that I had seen many times on film,” Owusu-Koramoah said. “Shaun Crawford also alerted me as well. We were talking to each other. We knew the play was coming. So I just wanted to go ahead and make a big hit. But the ball popped out. So I grabbed it.”

He will play with his hand down in even fronts and rush the QB. When he guesses the snap, he can sack the QB in a flash. He has that knack for getting to the QB in the rush. I think his position is officially Irish Rover (you gotta be Irish to get that one;). He looks and plays bigger and stronger than his listed height and weight. Explosive. Elite mover. Vicious. Implement of mass destruction. Blow up tackler. Can play the ball in the air. Leader. Can play all over the field. Explosive blitzer. Scares QBs. Elite hitting QBs.

“He really is a 4-3 OLB. Shifty. Fast. Plays with strength and leverage. Great powerful hands. He can manhandle players listed a lot bigger than he is. Long arms. Speed to power. Good rusher. Better moving forward. He can destroy the TE and get to the RB catching the swing pass behind the line

His stats were a little down this season, but is great in space and that is what the Raiders need on defense. Plus he is a Notre Dame guy, and we all know how much Mayock likes his Fighting Irish guys. He played better in 2019 than 2020. He was whirlwind on the field in 2019.

"When the caliber of play stepped up, his play stepped up to a level where we really saw him almost stand out against the really top performing teams,” Kelly said. “He brings his best against the best. I think that’s how you measure great players is at what level do they play. Competitive greatness is always measured about the great players play their best against those types of teams and I think that’s where we started to see his separation and ascension as a football player.”

SENIOR SEASON (2020) : Started and led the Irish with nine tackles (six solo), also adding a sack (-6 yards), two TFL (-9 yards) and a forced fumble, which was the first turnover of the season after breaking the ball loose from Duke’s Jalon Calhoun in the third quarter, in the season-opening win vs. Duke (9/12).

He recovered another fumble, forced by the Irish, for his second FR of the season and fourth of his career, which led to a Notre Dame touchdown drive. One of his two pass breakups came on third down, forcing a Syracuse punt and leading to a Notre Dame touchdown drive. Owusu-Koramoah was the only player in the ACC that weekend to note at least one FF, one FR and a pass breakup. Started and totaled seven tackles (six solo), including 2.0 TFL, in the ACC Championship game (12/19). Started and earned six tackles (four solo) in the CFP Semifinal at the Rose Bowl Game (1/1/21).

2nd Choice: Najee Harris RB

18. Miami Dolphins:

(WR, LB, Edge, FS, NT, WR, OC, LB, Edge, LB, DL, RB, WR, Edge, CB, WR, OLB,):

*Najee Harris- 6-2, 230, RB, Junior, #16-

1st Pick: Kyle Pitts- TE, FLA

This Draft is all about helping Tua be all that he can be. Getting Pitts at Six instantly makes him better. Now get a big power back that Tua is familiar playing with, can only make the Offense run much better. From inside runs, to tosses outside, to play action, to swing passes out of the backfield.

Najee can do nothing except make his QB look and play better. And if you dare doubt that? Then tell me how an RB who scored 50 total TDs in the last two seasons isn’t a boon for a small fragile Quarterback, whose one weakness is staying healthy? He had 46 rushing TDs and 11 Passing TDs at Alabama.

There is no one left on the Board who can help a young QB more than Harris. He is a terrific blocker in pass pro. He affects the passing games in every way. Blitz pick up. Elite receiver with soft hands. Can make the impossible play after the catch (like hurdling a defender;). I hate this pick!

Big. Tough. Strong. Powerful. Elusive. Terrific outside speed. Can help keep the QB on his feet in ton of ways. Soft hands. Smart. Top competitor. Steps up game in big games. Sweet soft hands outside. Can run the Wheel. Closer. Gets tough yards at the end of games to run out the clock.

Instantly makes the QB better, just running the ball and running play action. Defense have to react to his play actions. He is an ex-teammate of Tua’s, and they are familiar with each other and what and how they like things run. Instant impact player for Tua and the Miami offense.

He runs a nice play action. He’s good in blitz pick up when he wants to be. He will slam right into the LB blitzing up the gut. Nice lead blocker for the QB. He had a tough time getting on the field because of all the talent infront of him. He was a top recruit and produced in the run game when he was put in.

He‘s more of a big power back than a dancer and speed back like Etienne, but he has some nice outside speed. He stands up and hurts defenders who get in his way. He is a terrific slasher, who has that knack for finding a lane through traffic, and bursting through it outside. Excellent job stepping up off play-action and hitting (or being hit by) the two LBs who fell for the play-action right in front of the QB, which opened up the middle for Tua to throw. He makes an impact in the passing game consistently.

Some of the best contact balance in a player I have ever seen. Nice patience on short yardage to wait for his OLs to make a hole for him. Freakishly strong. Stunningly agile. Hurdlingly athletic. He’s just too big to have that elite make-you-miss-quickness. 

Efficiently

“He’s the biggest RB I have ever seen, who is also just as balanced, graceful, athletic, fast, and quick as any of the other smaller RBs in this Draft. I get not drafting RBs in the 1st, but there are always exceptions to the rule. And one thing the RBs do that teams seem to have forgotten about is that they take pressure and the pass rush off the QB more than any other “skilled” position…”

19. Washington Logoless:

(QB, OT, OLB, WR, RB, TE, QB, IOL, Edge, TE, LB, IDL, OL,):

#23 Zaven Collins- 6-4, 259, (PD) 4.65, 35” Vert, 19 Reps, OLB, Tulsa, Rs-Jr--

 

Washington really needs some help. Rivera, a former linebacker, said he wanted an LB who could play all over the place. That describes Collins perfectly. Positionless player. He can play all four LB position in a 3-4, and all three in 3-4. And, line up as an Edgerusher on either side as well. Really looks the part. He looks a little light to be a pure Edge. But as a 3-4 OLB he can rush and drop with equal aplomb. Navy double him in the middle. He has that knack for getting infront of the RB. Fierce inside run stuffer. He can pop the TE to the ground filling the hole, and get to the RB’s legs. Against Navy he didn’t rush as much, because Navy is an Option team. But he still got to the QB first outside, from the ILB spot. He also hit the QB in the option, after the pitch. Then when the RB fumbled, he dived on it first. He’s an elite mover, great smarts and instincts, reacts quicker than everyone else on the field. He can submarine the RB in the hole. Clutch kid who had two game winning INTs. He can get to the sideline and tackle the RB. Lines up as an ILB in their Defense, but he will be an Edge guy in the NFL. A team that takes him in the 1st is going to want him rushing the QB. Navy attacked his legs, and was very effective cut blocking him on every down. Excellent in the middle of the zone spying the QB. He’s a very QB obsessed player with his eyes. That is why he goes in the 1st. He has that knack for affecting the quarterback. He will also play ILB. They scheme him to play different roles in different games. His role in the NFL with be at Edge. I see him playing Edge and OLB. He can play any LB position. Most athletic LB in this Draft. He will line up inside, and can play the Mike and fill the hole and tackle the RB in the backfield, on the Goalline. Great instincts. Plays on the Strong and Weak side.

They move him around to make it harder for OLs to find him. He has that spark and slash you look for. Impressive speed to power to pop the OL back into the backfield. Consistently attacks forward.

He has that knack for finding the quarterback, even when he takes off downfield and glides over and tackles the QB after he takes off. Great athlete with speed and purpose. Great hustle heart and hands. He can shove off three blockers to cross the field and tackle the ball carrier. He gets a lot of hype coming into each game, and it seems the small school OLs go out of their way to try to hit him.

20. Chicago Bears:

(QB, OT, CB, OL, WR, Edge, CB, TE, WR, DL, IOL, Edge, TE, LB, DT,):

*Rashawn Slater- 6-3, 320, 33” Arms, OL, Northwestern, Junior, #16-

Bears have a lot of needs. They need to get some help for the O-line now. They need help at multiple spots. They could use a Tackle and an OG. Slater has the potential to play both, and he can play on both sides. I see him as a plug and Play OG. But I do believe his true value will be at Left Tackle in the NFL.

Slater’s an elite blocker. He’s a little short more Isaiah Wynn’s size. His arms weren’t as short as expected. He can play OLT like Wynn, in the right Offense. He can snap the ball and play all three interior OL positions. He has started full seasons at ORT and OLT. Can play all five OL positions.

"It's a rare player that can make an impact in the Big Ten in their first year of college, and even more rare to do it on the offensive line," Northwestern HC Pat Fitzgerald said. "Rashawn earned a starting spot almost immediately and never gave it up, helping pave the way to two bowl championships and a Big Ten West Division title. He has made the entire Northwestern community proud not only on gamedays, but in the classroom as an Academic All-Big Ten honoree, and we can't wait to see what his future holds on Sundays!"

We will line up a little further outside when the DE goes Wide 9. Smooth kickslide back. Mirrors the big D-end with quicks and aggression. He’s a little short for a Left Tackle, but a great athlete. Elite feet and feel for position moving backwards. 33” arms was a great number for him. I though his arms

Good COD when he moves forward in a run game and the D-end goes upfield. He can stop and turn quick and jam him out of the play fast. Bursts forward and seals the OLB as fast as I’ve seen. He has the athleticism to play in the NFL. Arm length will be everything for him. He didn’t give up a Sack in 2019. Only gave up 6 pressures and one QB hit. He also only gave up five hurries. He has elite feet and balance to slide and stay infront of any rusher.

Taken From The Mother Of All Mocks “He can power the big DE back and knock him off balance moving forward in run game. Great power to turn and seal the DE. Plays mean and nasty and will keep knocking the DE outside until the whistle. Top fight, quicks and suddenness moving back in pass pro. Strong upper body power.

“Tremendously agile running backwards on QB waggles to the opposite side. Gets to the 2nd level to block the LB in space. Good kickslide moving backwards. It can look a little choppy to speed. But he can then punch the DE off balance and knock him down.

“A friggin’ powerhouse blocking down on the DT in run game. Effortless. He would be an instant star at OLG. Superb contact balance. Powerful, leveraged, and quick moving backwards. Good job finding LBs to block in traffic…” Read More: Free On Amazon Prime.

2nd Choice: Caleb Farley CB

 

21. Indianapolis Colts:

(OLT, DE, Edge, QB? CB, Edge, WR, DB, OG, DL, TE, WR,):

Kwity Paye- 6-4, 272, Edge, Michigan, #19-

The Colts have some issues. Two big needs on Offense and Defense. However, they do have two OLs returning form injury. Lane Johnson and Anthony Costanzo are expected to be 100% by opening day, as well as two other OLs. The Colts have two excellent OGs, but they had trouble at Left Tackle last season, which seems like that problem is solved.

However, their Edgerushers are disappearing like snow. Paye is a true athletic freak in a field of athletics freaks. He doesn’t have a great knack for hitting the quarterback. But he has everything else you want in a D-end. Great size-speed ratio. Really looks the part and is a suburb athlete. A true athletic freak.

Plays with leverage. Can set the edge and stack and shed. Then burst inside to get the RB. Not a lot of guys have ever been as big, stout, fast, and explosive on the Edge. Thick built. Massive thighs. Built up body everywhere. Great hands and quicks to shed multiple blockers moving forward. Great lean.

Fast and powerful. Good bend. Exceptional twitch and quicks for such a big man. Can hold the point. Versatile. Will line up as at D-End on one play, and 5-Tech on the next. Can hit the QB and grab the RB from either position. Explosive blast off to put the OT on skates consistently. Sheds quick.

He can blast off on the backside, and tackle the RB from behind running to the strongside. Amazing speed, burst, and explosion when he has the ball carrier in his sights. Strong as an ox, and built like one. When he is charging, he looks great. Can win with his hands. Nice blast off and has that knack for grabby bother arms of the OT, and pulling himself past him instantly. Impressive.

Great mover, but doesn’t always move in the right direction. Eyes will be everything for him. When he reads it right he can’t be stopped. But he doesn’t read it right often enough. Lines up in a four-point stances a lot.

I’d like to see him rush inside at 3 or 4 Tech on 3rd and long. Top upside of Edges this year. Constant hands pushing, popping, and punching. Doesn’t let OLs grab shirt. One of the most difficult Edges I’ve ever seen for OLs to keep his hands on him. His best asset are his Kung-Fu hand fighting techniques that block, slash, and power OLs arms and hands off his shirt.

Brilliant hands fighter bursting into the backfield. But his eyes worry me. Great side-step move with shoulder punch and pull. Nice swim around Edge. Great two-handed swipe. Can stunt under the other DLs to sack the QB on opposite side. Great hand fighting inside move. Can run the arc.

Taken From The Mother Of All Mocks “He has the size to play some 5-tech, and the athleticism to play some OLB. He just has to find a way to hit the ball carrier more. He has that knack for grabbing and controlling the blockers arms. He can stand up or put a hand down, or two. Then move to OLB in Odd and Even fronts and play standing up on the Edge.

Terrific fit for what the Pats like to do. He will stand up at OLB in their 3-4. Ultra-quick. Great quick hands to attack the blockers hands and arms. Has that special blast off. Heavy hands. Good impact on blockers. Can play as low as you wanna go. Great job slapping the blocker’s arm, and attacking to the opposite side. …”

2nd Choice: Davis Mills QB

 

22. Tennessee Titians:

(Edge, IDL, CB, TE, WR, LB, Edge, CB, OG, OLB/DE, OT, OC, TE, CB, WR?):

**Azeez Ojulari- 6-3, 240, OLB/Jack, Georgia, Rs-Soph, #13-

This is such a deep Draft. Phenomenal talent in this Draft. Four top-ten Edge rushers have dropped into the 20s in this Mock. Titans take the easy pick here. Ojulari is an elite mover who’s an ascending talent. I don’t think he put it all together yet. Ultra twitchy, quick, and sudden. Fun to watch. Catches the eye.

Nice get off with the outside shoulder punch, to scare the QB.

Naturally sets the Edge. He can jam the OLT inside to free up the rusher stunting outside of him. Patient and disciplined on the Edge in scheme. Takes his responsivities seriously. His arms are always swinging, swiping, and chopping at Tackles’ arms and hands. Heavy and quick hands.

He causes problems for the OLT and the QB in the rush. Dynamic in the rush. But he looks a little thin. Stronger and tougher than his thin frame would indicate. He can lower his shoulder and take on the pulling guard, and force him to cutback away from the hole. He’ll see the RB sneaking out of the backfield, and get his hand up in the passing lane. Terrific hand fighter.

He’ll line up in a Wide-9, and two OLs will double him outside. He can slam the two OLs inside with a nice pop, so the DT can twist around him. Team player. Their scheme has him sacrifice a lot for the team and his teammates. He is still learning, and still developing and growing physically.

He can trip up the QB on the keeper. Great get off. When he wins with his hands, he hits the QB. He has a nasty double swipe that he uses consistently, and that gives him the outside lane to the QB. He can get the OLT off balance with his get off, and pull him down to the ground to turn the corner to the QB. Strong upper body. Phenomenal flash and dash. Elite mover.

He causes problems for the QB in the rush. Quick, twitchy and fast. Stunning spin move. Switches sides and position a lot. Can rush from angle. Prototype for positionless football. Strong hands in rush. When he unleashes, he can punch the OLT’s arms and run past him to get an angle to the QB. When he moving all out, he really looks the part.

I question eyes sometimes. Should be more productive. Has all the moves, but doesn’t hit the QB enough. Great talent, leaves me wanting more production.

Taken From The Mother Of All Mocks “Ojulari was Georgia’s number one rusher. Love this kid. Not a lot of notes on him, because he’s a Rs-Soph and I didn’t think he’d declare. But, Covid changes everything (sung to the tune “Money Changes Everything;). This year’s Draft looks like one of the All-Time Drafts (with all the QBs and WRs), and with all the young guys like Ojulari and Herring declaring.

“Great hands attacking the OLT’s arms and knocking them down. This guy’s a freak. Elite blast off. Elite bend. He’s past the OLT before he can blink. Sudden. Explosive. Speed rusher. Draws Holds like Picasso. Skinny dude who’s stronger than he looks. Fast and furious. Has that flash that you look for…” Read More: Free On Amazon Prime.
