Draft week is almost upon us and Ash Till (@tillsa9909s) – co-host of the Chargers Podcast on the First and Ten Network – brings you his first mock draft of 2021. Here are his top 50 picks.
In the second of a series of offseason reviews looking at the Colts moves Steve Ovenden (@HappyHappySteve) takes a look at the NFL Draft
After a solid performance with Free Agency, the Colts turned their attention to the Draft. With nine picks, there was plenty to work with to improve the team even further. A vital element this year was to address the depth at skill positions and address this problem they did. The first four picks consisted of a Wide Receiver, Running Back, Quarterback and a Safety. A great show of intent by the Colts to prove they are looking to improve now and safeguard their future.
According to draft experts, the initial indications are that the Cowboys have secured a top 10 2020 draft class. So what have they added? Ross Waddell (@RossWaddell92) takes a look.
The NFL draft brings new hope and new stories to the NFL. It’s a time when the vast majority of fans begin to forget the traumas of the previous season and are filled with optimism that this year might finally be their year.
The Dallas Cowboys have come out of the draft with a highly rated rookie pool headlined by first round pick WR CeeDee Lamb and second round CB Trevon Diggs.
In a strong wide receiver class, they added a universally regarded top three wide out in Oklahoma star CeeDee Lamb to add to the new $100m man, Amari Cooper, and ascending third year wideout, Michael Gallup, who arguably still went under the radar on the national level despite a breakout sophomore season recording over 1,100 yards despite missing two games due to injury in the early portion of the season. By owner Jerry Jones’ own admission, they never expected the Oklahoma wide receiver to be available at pick #17 and the Cowboys had been, realistically, focusing their attention on LSU DE K’Lavon Chaisson, a talented but raw pass rusher, and corners AJ Terrell and, at one time, CJ Henderson.
Josh Capps look back at the weekend’s draft and gives us three winners and three losers.
Let us know how you think your team did and what you would have done differently.
It is hard to think the Ravens needed many additions after a 14-win season, but the Ravens did what the Ravens do best, and loaded Lamar Jackson’s offence with even more weapons. The running back J.K Dobbins will pair up with Ingram, and the addition of two wide receivers in Duvernay and Proche will give further options to Lamar when he decides to look downfield. Some very smart picks that should see Baltimore in the hunt again.
So the first round is in the books, and Ash Till is back with a second round mock draft. Will we see a quarterback go in round two? Just when will the likes of Xavier McKinney and AJ Epenesa come off the board? It is all here.
Ash Till brings us the final mock draft of the year. There are six trades, four quarterbacks and penty of tackles
1. Bengals – Joe Burrow, QB, LSU
The Bengals take their franchise guy. The Ohio kid returns home to give this franchise a new and exciting era.
2. Redskins – Chase Young, Edge, Ohio State
The Redskins take the best player in the draft, let’s not overthink this.
3. Lions – Isiah Simmons, Defence, Clemson
The longer this process has gone on the less I’m convinced the lions get this trade done. Lions stick and pick, and for me Simmons is one of a kind, giving the Lions a defensive piece like no other.
