*** OFFICIAL 2021 NFL Draft Thread ***


Recommended Posts

NFL Insider Jay Glazer reports the Saints are trying to trade into the Top 10 of Thursday's draft.

"Not for a QB," he added. This reaffirms Ian Rapoport's earlier report that the Saints have been on the phone all morning attempting to move inside the top-10, likely for an elite cornerback. Just hours away from the first pick of the 2021 draft, it's a storyline worth monitoring since any blockbuster deal would flip the night on its head.

Yeah, I’ve witnessed it from my time living in West Virginia and owning a ####### TV.

Which is worse?   Jax drafting an RB in round 1, or me throwing tater tots into the oven at 10:25 pm?

No... Tater tots into the air-fryer is the shark move.

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reports the NFL is "pressing the 49ers to keep their pick under wraps for as long as possible."

The league is obviously trying to maximize TV ratings until the very moment Roger Goodell announces the No. 3 pick. While that likely gives Niners fans a sickening feeling, preserving the suspense will only make this draft that much more exciting/frustrating/tear-jerking at day's end. Mac Jones (-286) remains the favorite for San Francisco's selection at PointsBet, followed by Trey Lance (+240), Justin Fields (+500), and Kyle Pitts (+2500).

A few questions:

"What QB will the Niners pick?

In this trio of QBs, who will be drafted first?

  • Justin Fields 
  • Mac Jones 
  • Trey Lance

Who will be the first wide receiver drafted?

  • Ja'Marr Chase
  • DeVonta Smith
  • Jaylen Waddle
  • Other

What team is most likely to trade into a top 10 pick?

  • Patriots
  • Eagles
  • Bears
  • Browns
  • Washington Football Team
  • Steelers
  • Other


 

 

Niners should take Fields, but will take Jones

Chase

WFT. Although I think it is possible even likely 2 do.

The best move not being talked about - bengals should trade down with Denver, get an extra 1st + and still get the second best OL 

I don't think Denver wants to give up a first. I could see Denver trading a receiver and a second maybe. That being said, Cincy never trades down.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the Philadelphia Eagles have been "active this week" in looking for avenues to trade up.

As for who the Eagles might be targeting, Fowler hears that their trade machinations are possibly for a move which would jump them over the Cowboys in order to draft a cornerback such as Patrick Surtain or Jaycee Horn. Dallas is very much viewed to be in that same market. There is a wee bit of an NFC East pileup starting at No. 10, when the Cowboys, Giants and Eagles are currently slotted to pick consecutively. The off-shoot of this is that those teams -- which probably won't trade with each other -- are going to have to do a little more dancing than otherwise if they're trying to swing trades in that range.

Had a source who had contact with Atlanta throughout the process suggest last night he thought Falcons would go Trey Lance if Mac Jones was selected by 49ers. Mock drafts could be dust by No. 4 ... which would be great for the Giants. 

So much rests on the fate of the QBs.

Any thoughts on how the Saints could pull that off?

Mortgaging their future by giving up a significant amount of draft capital and possibly a player?

I know Minnesota absolutely needs a LT and I constantly complain about their online, but I admit I really would love to see them get a Fields or Lance as a true homegrown long term franchise QB. Stuck with Kirk's contract for a couple years but would free up alot of cash for a few years to get that young QB. Not hating on Kirk at all as the QB situation could be way worse.  Maybe they get that lineman and are able to land a Trask or Mills and they develop and surprise.

My "Shocker" Micah Parsons falls to back of Rd1 & Kentucky's Jamin Davis comes off board 1st. 

Always hear "Stock is Rising". It's actually the case on Jamin Davis. Elite Workout & 1 yr off the charts production. HIGH CHARACTER. Fits Todays NFL LB Mold better than Parsons.

Sean Payton "We can't line up without a Cornerback" is completely out of character. SMOKE SCREEN? 

When does a Coach show his hand like that? For YEARS Payton's been obsessed with the young QBs. Apparently loved Mahomes. When Lance starts falling, Saints will consider going UP.

For those of you who are checking in on draft props:

 @FanDuel has dropped Mac Jones from -280 to just -160 to be the third overall pick. Trey Lance now +150 on FanDuel to be the #49ers pick

Eric Galko @EricGalko

Trey Lance is now the betting favorite to be the 3rd overall pick to the #49ers on @FanDuel

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports the "prevailing thought" is that the Giants pick an Alabama WR (DeVonta Smith or Jaylen Waddle) with the No. 11 pick.

That's been the word out of the Giants' front office for some time but it still seems unfathomable after the organization signed Kenny Golladay to a four-year deal and added ex-Bengals wideout John Ross as depth. Even with numerous holes to fill on defense and the offensive line, perhaps it's time to start thinking GM Dave Gettleman gets this one wrong with another wide receiver after all. HC Joe Judge may persuade him to look elsewhere by the time New York is on the clock at No. 11.

:lmao: at this hot take by Raanan.  A team with one above average receiving option who also happens to be in his late 20's would be "unfathomable" to draft a WR in the 1st.

Julio to Green Bay would be scary.  And really make AA-ron happy.

Well then it definitely won't happen because GB typically goes out of their way to not do things that AA-ron wants.

The Atlanta Falcons have taken calls from just about everyone. 
I was told there hasn't been an offer good enough to trade back. They are willing to keep listening.
As of now, TE Kyle Pitts would be a selection the Falcons would be THRILLED to have if he's available.

Don’t know which QB it’ll be yet. But we’re gonna have a Brady Quinn / Aaron Rodgers type fall. One of the 3 not named Trevor Lawrence & Zach Wilson. It’s gonna be incredible for TV ratings. Hyping QBs is the NFLs Business Plan. From Drama of vets to where the next batch land.

If you are a cord cutter and no longer have cable how are you planning on watching? I could do ABC over the air I guess but I imagine there are some good livestreams out there these days.

I got them going Chase and then a close second with Sewell and Burrow is probably advocating for Chase

How will tonight go? According to a source in the thicket of the top of the draft: "There are so many teams trying to trade up right now.  I think you're going to see a record amount of trades."

Conversation Bengals having? If go Ja’Marr Chase at 5.... how much do we like Dillon Radunz & Sam Cosmi if Eichenberg doesn’t make it to 38. Bet they liked Bama’s Leatherwood early in process. Now ALL IN on Eichenberg.

How high could they go utilizing 38 & 69 or 38 & next yrs 2?

Rapoport said teams are viewing 2022 draft picks as gold because they will be more tape, better evaluations, more medicals, etc.

Doesn't mean teams are not looking to trade-up in this draft.  Makes sense for teams to move-up if they only have so-many draftable grades given out this year, they would want to move-up to land one of those players.  

So many opted-out or had shortened seasons so not as much film but 'some' players had more tape.  

Their have already been 4 trades involving first round picks next year, six picks have been traded for this year's draft so their have already been a fair amount dealt.

Not to mention they need to give their strong armed, unproven QB a chance to put up some points. 

I don't think they take either, but they'd be fine picks.

I think it would be smart to trade up, include a mid round pick and get a late pick back. Something like 1 and 3 for slightly higher 1 and 5 makes sense this year imo.

Huh.  It's almost like years of ticking off your franchise QB and planning for a future that doesn't involve him isn't a good way to convince him to stick around.

Once in a great while we are privileged to experience a TV event so extraordinary it becomes part of our shared heritage.  1969, man walks on the moon.  1971, man walks on the moon… again.  Then for a long time nothing happened, until tonight.
