2021 NFL Draft: Panthers land stud TE in 32-team first round mock
By Dean Jones
20. Rondale Moore – WR (Purdue)
There doesn’t appear to be a quarterback worth taking here for the Colts, so they pick up another supremely gifted weapon in Rondale Moore. The player has a similar skill set to that of Carolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel and is a threat to score every time he touches the ball.
21. Tyson Campbell – CB (Georgia)
The Browns have made some nice strides this season despite the uncertainty still surrounding quarterback Baker Mayfield. One area that might need bolstering with a high-end draft picks is their secondary and Tyson Campbell has plenty of useful tools at his disposal to come in and make a big difference from the word go.
22. Travis Etienne – RB (Clemson)
Tha Buccaneers brought in some short-term solutions to their win-now mentality, and Ronald Jones has shown some promise this season but there does appear some doubt as to his ability to hold down the fort long-term.
Tom Brady is always looking for weapons that can help him during what might just be his last year in 2021. Travis Etienne is a dual-threat running back who already has 816 all-purpose yards from six games.
23. Samuel Cosmi – OT (Texas)
The Jaguars got their franchise quarterback of the future in Justin Fields at No. 3 overall, and with their second pick of the first round they take Samuel Cosmi, who has the scope to be an elite protector at the next level if he reaches his ceiling and works out some kinks with his technique against more formidable edge rushers.
24. Alex Leatherwood – OT (Alabama)
If the Bills want to take another leap forward with quarterback Josh Allen, they need to protect him better. Alex Leatherwood is a huge body that has everything one looks for in an NFL offensive lineman, and his frame could fit either at guard or tackle depending on where he ends up.
25. Dillon Radunz – OT (North Dakota State)
It would be a fantastic boost for the North Dakota State football program if two of their players were taken in the first round. The Bears need a quarterback, but they would be reaching for anything at this point and although Dillon Radunz is a little unproven against top players, he has dominated almost everyone he’s come up against.
26. Josh Myers – OG (Ohio State)
Getting Kyler Murray some additional protection would be highly beneficial for the Cardinals. Josh Myers comes from a prestigious program at Ohio State and is a heavy handed interior offensive lineman that has looked NFL-ready for a long time.
