TC56 MONTHLY MOCK & COLLEGE FOOTBALL POSITION RANKINGS

TC56 2021 NFL TOP TEN MOCK DRAFT:

Current top 10 after week 4

  1. New York Giants – QB – Trevor Lawrence – Clemson
  • If the Giants end up with the number 1 pick it will mean Daniel Jones continued to be a turnover machine and Dave Gettleman will be canned. I hate giving up on a quarterback after year two with a suspect offensive line but Lawrence is too good of a prospect to pass up.
Looks pretty good

2. Atlanta Falcons – QB – Justin Fields – Georgia

  • The Falcons seem to be a snake bitten franchise since the Super Bowl debacle. Matt Ryan is 35 and Atlanta will most likely have a new coach. Fields, a Georgia native, has all the skills of the modern QB and if paired with talented receivers on the Falcons roster could be an explosive combo.

3. New York Jets – WR – JaMarr Chase – LSU

  • The Jets need talent on their roster and with the two top quarterbacks gone it would be imperative for them to get weapons around Sam Darnold. Becton looks to be a solid pick at left tackle but now Darnold needs a #1 target to stretch the field.

4. Miami Dolphins – DE – Greg Rousseau – Miami

  • Rousseau is a uber athletic edge player who can be a real difference maker defensively. He can fit into any system as a defensive end or an outside linebacker. Miami is building a good young team and just needs play makers on both sides of the ball. The Dolphins own two 1st round picks and could afford to take best player available here.

5. Dallas Cowboys – CB – Patrick Surtain II – Alabama

  • Surtain is the best corner in this draft. His length and physicality is a defensive coordinators dream. Dallas drafted his Alabama teammate last year Trevan Diggs. This pair could not only solidify the secondary but also help the pass rush.

6. Washington – OT – Penei Sewell – Oregon

  • A no brainer for the Washington football team. Sewell is a talented athletic tackle who is an anchor for a franchises offensive line for a decade. Washington has a young quarterback, a young running back, and a talented defense. Trent Williams’ departure this past offseason left a hole in the offensive line and Sewell is perfect pick to refill the void.

7. Los Angeles Chargers – OT – Samuel Cosmi – Texas

  • Almost in the same spot as Washington, the Chargers need to protect their young core and solidify their offensive line. Justin Hebert has looked impressive early on. Cosmi has been Mr. Reliable at Texas protecting Sam Ehlinger for the last 4 seasons. The 5th year senior is another athletic tackle who will match the Chargers play fast style.

8. Miami Dolphins – WR – Rondale Moore – Perdue

  • To go along with the play maker theme for the Dolphins Rondale Moore fits that moniker. Moore is a do everything player that is a dynamic runner, returner, and pass catcher. Fans might have forgot about him since he hasn’t played in a year and a half but scouts haven’t forgot. Tua to Moore could be a great connection for years to come.

9. Detroit Lions – DE – Carlos Basham Jr.  – Wake Forest

  • Basham is classic 4-3 defensive end. He is a talented pass rusher and has a motor to chase down the run game. The Lions currently have veterans in those positions but like the Dolphins they need play makers anywhere and you can never have enough pass rushers. Basham is consistent, strong, and relentless traits the Lions have needed for the last 60 years.

10. Denver Broncos – LB – Micah Parsons – Penn State

  • I was disappointed that I would not get a chance to see Parsons play one more season in the big 10 but this is the times we are living in and Parsons has to protect his future. His talent is undeniable he can play middle linebacker for 3 downs in the pros and make 100+ tackles every year. Broncos are still very talented on the outside defensively and went heavy offense in last year’s draft.

Quincy Roche – 6’3” 245 – Miami/Temple – Senior – Rating (3.64)(3.71)

Season stats: 3 games / 10 tackles / 5.5 tackle for a loss / 2 sacks

  • Roche has to pick up the slack for the Canes with the absence of Rousseau. He has been up to the challenge so far. He could inch up draft boards with a good showing tonight in prime time vs. Clemson.
