#10 Mac Jones- 6-2, 217, Alabama QB-
Hey, is it odd that all the American QBs showed up at 6-2? Is that typo? I
have been mocking Jones to the Patriots for over a month. Now the
National guys are finally following suit. He has the arm, smart, and clutch.
He led the Tide to a National Championship, and it seemed nobody noticed.
He is a little short, and doesn’t have an elite arm.
But he does have an elite brain and the clutch, like Brady. If he is on
the Board at 15 the Pats have to take him or trade down. The theme to THE
MOTHER OF ALL MOCKS 2021, that I am currently writing is, “If you ain’t
got a QB, you ain’t got shit.” The Pats ain’t got shit. I think Jones is

#7 Jamie Newman- 6-2, 325, - Wake Forest. QB- He throws too
many interceptions. I just don’t trust him. He has the arm, the size, the
athleticism. Great scrambler. But He just didn’t look ready for Primetime
at the Senior Bowl.
Now he opted out last season and was obviously rusty,
but was never really a pure passer by anyone’s measure. Goldberg
wrote: “Newman had transferred to Georgia after spending the past
four years at Wake Forest. He was eligible to play immediately as a
graduate transfer and was battling for the starting job until opting out.
As Bleacher Report's Matt Miller noted, JT Daniels will likely become the
Bulldogs' starting quarterback as a result of the latest news.
Newman seemingly had a leg up on Daniels, who was
still recovering from a torn ACL suffered last season at USC and hasn't
been cleared for contact.”

#12 Kellen Mond- 6-2, 205, Texas A&M QB-
Great athlete. Great arm. Love the way he runs an offense. He has a great
arm. Can throw on the run. Excellent scrambler. Became more of a thrower
in 2021. Groomed to be a QB his whole life. But he still throws too many interceptions.
You cannot throw that many Interceptions in the NFL.
2020 (SENIOR): Has started all nine games

... Became A&M's all-time
career passing yards leader in the Florida game.
#1 Kadarius Toney- 5-11, 189, 30.5” Arms! Florida
WR- Great player. He is the kind of WR that NFL teams are looking
for now-a-days. A pure space player. He is very small almost tiny, but
when he is in space you cannot touch him never mind cover him. Explosive.
Electric. Great catching through contact. Nice spin move off jam. FLASHES
all over the field. Great hands. Great smarts. Great toughens. Short arms
are a concern. There is not a lot of examples of success in the NFL for
guys with 30” arms.
2020: Appeared and started in all 10
games... Led team with new career highs in catches (62), receiving yards
(831) and all-purpose yards (1,228)… Helped Florida become the only team
in the nation with three players with at least eight touchdown receptions
(Kyle Pitts and Trevon Grimes) after scoring a new career-best nine
receiving scores... Joined teammate Kyle Pitts (11 touchdowns) as the
fifth duo in Gators history (and first since 2001) with at least nine
touchdown catches apiece and the first Gators since Taylor Jacobs
(Sept.21-28, 2002) with multiple touchdown catches in consecutive games
(Texas A&M and Missouri)… Finished the regular season ranked ninth in
the SEC with an average of 122.8 all-purpose yards per game, and he is
one of six SEC players with 11 total touchdowns this season and just one
of three FBS players with a rushing, receiving and punt return touchdown
this season (nine receiving, one rushing, one punt return vs Kentucky).
#3 Amari Rodgers- 5-9, 211, 30” Arms, Clemson
WR- Love this Patriots type Slot guy. Fast. Smart. Electric.
Uncoverable in space. Explodes wide open out of breaks. He is terrific
getting open at the marker on 3rd down. Slippery outside and can make the
first guy miss. Small hands, but catches everything like they are made of
glue. Another elite College slot guy with tiny arms. But he has built his
body up impressive and is very strong. More Wes Welker than Julius Edelman.
Consummate professional, figuratively speaking, who
was a key figure in Clemson’s four straight College Football Playoff
berths from 2017-20 … earned starting roles at receiver and punt returner
in 2018 and contributed in those roles in 2019 after a remarkable
comeback from injury and then recorded a career year as a senior in 2020
… concluded career with 181 career receptions for 2,144 yards with 15
receiving touchdowns in 1,901 snaps over 55 career games (37 starts) …
also credited with 68 career punt returns for 529 yards (7.8 avg.)
including a punt return touchdown … became only the fifth Clemson player
since 2000 to record touchdowns by rush, reception and punt return in a
career … at a program that has routinely produced outstanding pro talent
in recent years, completed his tenure ranked sixth in Clemson’s history
in career receptions, 12th in career receiving yards and tied for 14th in
career receiving touchdowns, as well as ninth in career punt return yards.
#5 Marquez Stevenson- 5-10, 182, Houston WR-
Speed-speed-speed. I like what he did in practice. He is a Day Two guy
who could slip into Day One because of his SPEED. Fast Explosive. Speed
kills and he has the speed that kills. Needs to go to a team with a QB
that has a strong arm. When they fake to him, he draws a lot of
attention. Teams scheme against him. They like him on reverses where he
is not just fast, but slick and slippery.
2020: Team captain who recorded 20
receptions for 307 yards in just five games played … finished his career
with 2,269 receiving yards (13th in program history), 147 receptions
(17th in program history) and 22 touchdown catches (tied for sixth in
program history) … hauled in team-high four touchdown receptions and
returned four kickoffs for 145 yards and a touchdown, averaging 36.2
yards per return … his five total touchdowns were tied for the team lead
and 468 total yards were third on the team … his nine receptions, 129
yards receiving and two touchdown receptions at Navy (Oct. 24) all marked
#6 Austin Watkins Jr- 6-1, 2017, UAB WR-
Don’t know a lot about this guy but he showed up in practice this Week. He
is a Day Three guy who should make a team. Showed good hands. Has some
burst out of breaks to get open. Big dude with big hands. He really looks
the part. Developmental guys who has some size and speed.
CAREER: 98 catches for 1,642 yards and nine
touchdowns...Ranks seventh in school history for receiving yards and
eighth in career receptions...One of just three players in school history
to have a 1,000 yard receiving season...Had at least one catch in every
game of his career (25)...First UAB player named to the Reese's Senior
Bowl since 2012.
AS A REDSHIRT SENIOR (2020): First Team
All-Conference USA...Selected to Reese's Senior Bowl...In seven games,
had 34 catches for 468 yards and three touchdowns...Had a career-high 183
receiving yards on seven catches at South Alabama...Led the team in
receiving four times.
#8 Trevon Grimes-6-3, 217, Florida WR- Another
small electric WR. This is a great Draft for WRs. The Pats really need to
pick up two or three WRs in this Draft. They got their Tights Ends last
season, found Jakobi Meyers, and N’Keal Harry developed slowly during the
season. Now they need a couple of fast space dudes who can destroy DBs in
the Slot. Grimes is a bigger WR in the N’Keal mode that can play in the Slot.
#85 Josh Palmer- 6-1, 210, 33” Arms, Tennessee
WR- Might be best player on the team. He can get open on the
Seam. Nice Comeback. Great size and speed. I like how he runs patterns. He
can make the exceptional adjustment to the ball downfield that makes the
DB foul him. Big sneaky WR. He can leap up over the CB and snag the high
lob. He can make the great adjustment on the TD catch. Underrated.
CAREER: Explosive receiver in the midst of a
solid senior season … Appeared in 46 games with 35 starts … Caught 96
passes for 1,459 yards and seven touchdowns … Also has one rushing score
to his credit … 66 of his 96 catches have gone for a first down … Has 15
career catches of 25 or more yards … Came to Knoxville after outstanding
prep career in Florida and prior to that grew up in Canada … A leader in
the classroom and community as well.
#13 Shi Smith- 5-10, 186, 31.25” Arms, South
Carolina WR- Speed Dude. When he doesn’t win with speed he doesn’t
win. I want to say he is Deebo, but is not. He is a much different kind
of WR. He is much more a small speed WR, who will line up more outside
than in the slot. Nice speed on the jet sweep. He is difficult to take
down when he is running fast. Not as big and tough as Deebo. Another interesting
Day Three option for the Pats.
The top returning
receiver on the squad... moves into the No. 1 role after being a
secondary option behind Deebo Samuel and Bryan Edwards... has 117 career
receptions for 1,571 yards... enters his final season ranked in a tie for
12th on the school’s all-time list of receptions with Cory Boyd... also
had returned 18 kickoffs for 401 yards, a 22.3-yard average... has played
in 34 games over the past three seasons with 26 starts, second among the
returning players... best known for his hands and his ability to catch
#14 Cornell Powell- 6’, 205, Clemson WR-
He has that knack for making the big play at the big time. Great speed to
run past the good CB. He can adjust to the underthrown ball and catch the
deep one through the contact of the CB. Elite runner after the catch.
Great athlete who can really dance with the ball in his hands and make
half the defense miss at the biggest time. Great strong clutch player. He
can make the catch and power it into the Endzone in Overtime. I could
live with him on the Pats in Day Two.
Part of teams that earned five ACC titles, five
College Football Playoff berths, three national title game berths and two
national championships from 2016-20 … committed five-year member of the
program whose emergence as a fifth-year senior was one of the dominating
storylines of 2020 … after entering 2020 with 40 career receptions for
329 yards and three touchdowns from 2016-19, he finished his tenure with
93 receptions for 1,211 yards and 10 touchdown catches in 1,207 snaps
over 54 career games (12 starts) after a career year in 2020 … also
posted eight career kickoff returns for 197 yards.
2020: Recorded career highs in receptions
(53), receiving yards (882), receiving touchdowns (seven), snaps (630)
and starts (12) … his seven receiving touchdowns were tied with Amari
Rodgers for the team lead … third-team All-ACC pick
#17 Racey McMath- 6-2, 224, LSU WR-
Big power forward WR. Speed will be everything for him. He can get open
in pattern and beat up on DBs a little. Big strong hands to clamp onto the
pass and not let go. There is a lot to like about this Dude. He hurts DBs
in more ways than one. Tough SOB.
Goes into senior season as a starter at wide
receiver for the Tigers … Waited patiently for his opportunity and has
used his time at LSU to develop into a dependable and capable player on
the verge of a breakout season in 2020 …
Good size with breakaway speed … Coming off his best season at LSU
a year ago with 17 catches for 285 yards and three TDs … For career, has
played in 28 games with 19 catches for 327 yards and three scores … Has
also been a key contributor on special teams during his three years with
#81 Quintin Morris- 6-2, 32.5” Arms, Bowling Green
TE- Very good blocker. They have him line up inline. Then pull inside
and lead the RB through the hole. Great lead blocker, who can devastate
the LB on the 2nd level. Can block DT. Long arms. Great chipping the DE
than getting open in the Flat. Excellent crack back. He’ll sell out blocking.
He has some speed down the Seam. Stepped up and played well against FBS competition.
Can get open on seam route breaking outside. Good hands. He can hold on
diving out for the high and outside pass, and take the helmet to helmet shot
by the DB and hold on. Interesting small school Day Three TE.
2019: Second-team All-MAC. Started all 12
games for the Orange & Brown. Led team with 55 receptions, 649
receiving yards, and four touchdown catches. His 55 receptions were most
in the MAC for a tight end. His 649 receiving yards were also most in the
MAC for a tight end. Had five catches for 65 yards and two touchdowns in
a win over Morgan State. Also had six catches for 90 yards, including a
career-long 59-yard reception, in a game against Louisiana Tech. Reeled
in 10 catches for 92 yards at Notre Dame.
#83 Kylen Granson- 6-2, 242, 32” Arms,
SMU TE- H-back. Gives effort blocking. Light hands. Can grab shirt
and turn the DE out of play. He can get to the 2nd level and block the
OLB. He will line up outside like a Split End. He’ll line up in the Slot and
has some speed down the seam. Good Redzone threat. He can get open deep
down the seam. He can go up over DBs and pull it in. Gets open crossing.
Senior (2020): Started all 10 games...
Registered 35 catches for 536 yards and a team-leading five TDs... His
15.31 yards per reception ranked 10th in the AAC... Had a career-high 149

#86 Noah Gray-
6-3, 240, Duke TE- Finally some one who isn’t 6-2. Was their measuring
stick broken at the Senior Bowl? He is an H-back. He will line up in the backfield
like a RB and get outside and curl down the line. He’ll line up in the
slot and get open down the Seam. Gets open in pattern. Good hands. Good
blocker. Needs to get stronger. But he will grab the DE’s shirt and not
let go. Great job keeping his feet moving. Will lower his head and give a
little helmet hit. Tough blocker. He’ll line up on the Seam and block the
#87 Tre' McKitty- 6-4, 247, Georgia TE-
Slippery in pattern. He can get open on the 2nd and 3rd levels on Corner
routes. Great hands. Can make the one handed catch at full speed. Elite
hands to catch the tipped pass between two defenders. He is not getting
out of Day Two. Good blocker. He can give the DE a big hit on zone block.
Great feet blocking on the move. He looked like the real Deal in SB

#20 Kylin Hill- 5-10, 214, Mississippi State
RB- I like this kid. Good twitchy RB. Makes play on passing downs
as well. Slippery up middle. Nice spin. Falls forward. Tough up the
middle. Great cut blocker in pass pro. A bit of a body catcher.
“Shifty, powerful running back who can make defenders
miss and has a gear to take it the distance.”
Won the starting role during 2018 fall camp and
started 25 of his last 27 appearances … One of the top running backs in
