2021 NFL Mock Draft Second Round Picks 11-20
11 (43) San Francisco
DE Carlos Basham, Wake Forest
The offense has to address the offensive line at some point, but the D line needs more parts and more pass rushers. Enter Carlos Basham, who should be an instant factor in a rotation.
12 (44) Dallas
DT Jay Tufele, USC
Dallas started working on the defense and it needs to keep pumping talent into the mix. LB Micah Parsons was a wonderful start, and it’s going to keep on coming. Tufele fits exactly what the Cowboys need on the inside rotation.
13 (45) Jacksonville (from Minnesota)
TE Pat Friermuth, Penn State
The Jaguars will keep taking talent as Urban Meyer keeps taking guy after guy after guy who can make an impact right away. The defense has to be addressed, but he’ll give Trevor Lawrence a tight end as a safety valve.
14 (46) New England
WR Tylan Wallace, Oklahoma State
Bill Belichick has a miserable track record of drafting receivers lately – he’ll take Friermuth if he’s here – but Wallace is a baller who could instantly become Mac Jones’ favorite target.
15 (47) Los Angeles Chargers
CB/S Elijah Molden, Washington
There’s a shot the Chargers keep on pumping talent into the offensive line after drafting Rashawn Slater in the first, but they also need to add more to the secondary. Molden would be the first of a few new options to at least provide depth.
16 (48) Las Vegas
S Jevon Holland, Oregon
The Raiders blew it on the value by taking Alabama OT Alex Leatherwood way, way too early in the first. They still need defensive back help, and it comes with the best option on the board.
17 (49) Arizona
WR Rondale Moore, Purdue
What have we learned about Arizona? The franchise likes freakish athleticism – hello LB Zaven Collins in the first round. Kyler Murray needs more playmakers, and Moore and his speed would be devastating in the attack.
18 (50) Miami
DT Levi Onwuzurike, Washington
Assuming the Dolphins address the O line early in the second round, they’ll keep helping out the defensive front here with some bulk for the interior. It might not be a glaring need, but the team will keep on building.
19 (51) Washington
OT Sam Cosmi, Texas
The O line didn’t get any first round help with the defense landing Kentucky LB Jamin Davis. The versatility of Cosmi matters – he’ll start out at guard but will test out at tackle.
20 (52) Chicago
OT Liam Eichenberg, Notre Dame
Now the Bears have to protect their new star quarterback. Justin Fields needs blockers on a leaky Chicago line, and while Eichenberg is hardly perfect, he’s going to be a piece of the puzzle early on.
