2021 NFL Mock Draft: Texans trade Deshaun Watson to Dolphins, Houston picks Zach Wilson at No. 3 overall

No changes here. That is, unless Urban Meyer comes to town. Then there’ll be Justin Fields rumblings. Either way, Lawrence should still be the heavy, odds-on favorite to go No. 1 overall to Jacksonville.

Fields got one heck of a battle from Zach Wilson during the season, but the Ohio State product will land at No. 2 overall.

BYU

Houston

PROSPECT RNK

POSITION RNK

3rd

The first, major piece in the speculated Watson trade. The No. 3 overall pick goes back to the Texans. Even with Tua Tagovailoa involved in the trade, the Texans can’t pass on a quarterback prospect like Wilson here.

Alabama

Atlanta

PROSPECT RNK

13th

POSITION RNK

The Falcons go with the consensus top cornerback to help the defense to hopefully muster one last surge out of the Matt Ryan era.

Oregon

POSITION RNK

With Sewell on the board, and Joe Burrow coming off a major knee injury, the Bengals don’t overthink it, and pick the athletic, powerful blocker.

LSU

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

5th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Eagles need more offensive weaponry for Jalen Hurts — or whoever is playing quarterback next season. Chase is young and was completely dominant as a 19 year old in 2019.

Alabama

• 6’1″

/ 175 lbs

Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

8th

POSITION RNK

2nd

If Matthew Stafford isn’t moved in a trade this offseason, Detroit will have to revamp his receiver room. Smith is a darn good start.


Trey Lance

The logical pairing for both the prospect and the franchise. Get Trey Lance a season behind Teddy Bridgewater.

Michigan

Denver

PROSPECT RNK

POSITION RNK

1st

The Broncos may need to be turning the page at one edge-rusher spot, which would open the door for Paye to land inside the top 10.

Virginia Tech

Projected Team

Dallas

PROSPECT RNK

11th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Cowboys have to prioritize the secondary early in the draft. Farley is a tall but athletic and instinctive corner.

Florida

• Jr

• 6’6″

/ 240 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

10th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Giants could easily move on from Evan Engram and get Daniel Jones a pass-catching matchup nightmare in Pitts if he falls this far.

Virginia Tech

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 314 lbs

Darrisaw reminds me a lot of Trent Williams, who is set to be a free agent after his one season in San Francisco.

Alabama

• Jr

• 5’10”

/ 182 lbs

The Chargers need to get Justin Herbert more weapons, especially those who can stretch the field. Waddle absolutely can do that.

Penn State

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

103rd

POSITION RNK

9th

Not that the Vikings would be pushing Anthony Barr out the door with this pick, but it’s a selection made with the long-term future at linebacker in mind.

Miami (FL)

• Soph

• 6’7″

New England

PROSPECT RNK

14th

POSITION RNK

Bill Belichick goes with the raw but versatile and high-upside Rousseau to refortify the defensive line in New England.

South Carolina

POSITION RNK

Somewhat of a surprise pick, but with Patrick Peterson bound to hit the free-agent market, the Cardinals go with an athletic specimen to replace him on the boundary.

TCU

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

The Raiders desperately need more coverage prowess at the safety position. Moehrig will bring that to the defense.

Pittsburgh

Houston

PROSPECT RNK

31st

POSITION RNK

2nd

In their second first-round pick acquired in the Watson trade, the Texans go with the explosive, decently refined Jones to usher in a new era at the defensive end spot in Houston.

USC

• 6’1″

/ 195 lbs

Projected Team

Washington

PROSPECT RNK

58th

POSITION RNK

7th

The Washington Football Team will see a lot of Terry McLaurin in St. Brown. They’ll formulate a fun duo that can routinely get open. I think Washington goes the free-agent or trade route at quarterback.

USC

• 6’4″

/ 315 lbs

Projected Team

Chicago

PROSPECT RNK

18th

POSITION RNK

4th

The Bears have to find a new quarterback for 2021, but this isn’t the place to do it. Instead, they build their offensive front with the athletic and versatile Vera-Tucker.

Northwestern

• 6’3″

/ 305 lbs

Projected Team

Indianapolis

PROSPECT RNK

16th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Another team that may be in the quarterback market this offseason suddenly needs a left tackle after news hit of Anthony Costanzo’s retirement.

Alabama

Tennessee

PROSPECT RNK

27th

POSITION RNK

2nd

While edge is a more glaring need, Barmore is a disruptive pass rusher on the interior and would wreak havoc next to Jeffery Simmons.

Minnesota

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

Bateman is a complete wideout who brings it with size, deceptive YAC skills, and polished route running.

Alabama

Projected Team

Pittsburgh

PROSPECT RNK

45th

POSITION RNK

11th

The Steelers are going to have plenty of difficult decisions to make this offseason, and rebuilding the offensive line is a must.

Florida

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

POSITION RNK

D.J. Chark, Laviska Shenault, and Toney make for a fun and dynamic receiving trio for Lawrence in Duval.

Georgia

Projected Team

Cleveland

PROSPECT RNK

97th

POSITION RNK

9th

Ojulari has threatening acceleration off the line of scrimmage and with more pass-rushing moves and strength, he can be one of the best young edge rushers in the NFL.

Wake Forest

• Sr

• 6’5″

/ 285 lbs

Projected Team

Tampa Bay

PROSPECT RNK

56th

POSITION RNK

6th

Tampa Bay plans for the future at defensive end with Basham, who’s humongous and strong at the point of attack but moves like he’s 25 pounds lighter than he really is.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 200 lbs

Projected Team

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

65th

POSITION RNK

9th

The Ravens are all about speed, and Marshall hits the gas as hard as anyone in the class, especially at a formidable 6-foot-3 and close to 215 pounds.

Purdue

/ 180 lbs

Projected Team

New Orleans

PROSPECT RNK

17th

POSITION RNK

4th

This feels like when Brandin Cooks fell to the Saints in the 2014 class. Small receiver who’s much more than a gadget player and will thrive in New Orleans.

Florida State

• Jr

• 5’10”

/ 184 lbs

Projected Team

Buffalo

PROSPECT RNK

46th

POSITION RNK

5th

Samuel can add another stellar athlete with high-caliber instincts to Buffalo’s secondary.

Tulsa

Projected Team

Green Bay

PROSPECT RNK

37th

POSITION RNK

5th

Love this prospect-team pairing because Collins has the size to rush off the edge in Mike Pettine’s scheme and range from sideline-to-sideline when needed.

Georgia

• Soph

• 6’2″

/ 185 lbs

Projected Team

Kansas City

PROSPECT RNK

55th

POSITION RNK

8th

Campbell is a long, smooth athlete who’ll be a welcomed addition to Kansas City’s defensive backfield.
