It’s been 34 weeks since the start of the 2021 college football season, and we’ve done an NFL mock draft each and every week (it sounds nuts because it is), but this time we’re doing something a little different. CBS Sports’ Pete Prisco has been doing this for years — a mock draft on what he thinks teams should do. It’s a great idea because it gets you on the record, plus it gives fans an easy way to point out where you were criminally wrong.
That said,Pete thought the Panthers should’ve taken Rashawn Slater with the eighth-overall pick (O-line is a HUGE need for Carolina this year). , Pete thought the Dolphins should’ve taken Justin Herbert at No. 5. Here’s a look at Pete’s what teams should do mock .
So we’re going to follow Pete’s lead, but we’ll take it a step further: We’re going two rounds deep with the 64 picks we think every team should make. A sneak peak: The first quarterback doesn’t go off the board until Pick 16 and then the next QB doesn’t get taken until Round 2, when four are selected. All told, 10 wide receivers lead the way, followed by nine edge rushers, eight cornerbacks and eight offensive tackles.
Keep reading to see both rounds.
