2021 NFL Mock Draft Second Round Picks 21-32
21 (53) Tennessee
OT Walker Little, Stanford
The Titans will go with the best offensive lineman available. They need a wide receiver, and they could use another defensive back after drafting Virginia Tech’s Caleb Farley in the first, but they need to overcome the sins of the 2020 draft with a prospect for the O line.
22 (54) Indianapolis
OT/OG Dillon Radunz, North Dakota State
The Colts have two glaring needs – defensive end and offensive line. They got Michigan’s Kwity Paye for the pass rush, but the versatile Radunz could be the more important pick for a line that needs more tackle options.
23 (55) Pittsburgh
OG Wyatt Davis, Ohio State
Is it the running backs or is it the offensive line? The Steelers got the running back in Najee Harris in the first round, and now they have to start drafting blasters. There will be more in the top 100.
24 (56) Seattle
CB Paulson Adebo, Stanford
The guy fits. The Seahawks have to come up with a playmaker at corner – and they need to nail this pick with just three selections. Adebo has top 15 talent but hasn’t played for a while. He’s an instant fit.
25 (57) Los Angeles Rams
OT Spencer Brown, Northern Iowa
The Rams finally get to play. They might go with one of the centers on the board, but they need an offensive tackle, too. They’ll deal with the interior later – they’ll go after the outside first.
26 (58) Kansas City (from Baltimore)
DE Ronnie Perkins, Oklahoma
This SO fits. The Chiefs need a defensive end and a pass rusher or two, and a few should be available here. It’s their first selection in the draft, and they’ll either go with the all-around talent in Perkins or …
27 (59) Cleveland
DE Joseph Ossai, Texas
D line, D line, D line. The Browns will get a tackle at some point, but they have to get younger out the outside. They went after a corner with Greg Newsome in the first round, and here they’ll get Ossai to be a disruptive force.
28 (60) New Orleans
CB Asante Samuel, Florida State
The Saints got their pass rushing prospect in Payton Turner in the first round, and they’ll get a receiver or two later on, but they have to address the secondary as soon as possible. The value here is at corner.
29 (61) Buffalo
CB/S Ifeatu Melifonwu, Syracuse
Getting a few offensive parts is a must – a strong running back would help – but the Bills need to keep improving the pass D. Miami DE Gregory Rousseau was taken late in the first, and the big Melifonwu would bring the versatility to be an instant playmaker.
30 (62) Green Bay
WR Anthony Schwartz, Auburn
It might not be a first round pick on a wide receiver, but if there’s any hope of reconciling things with Aaron Rodgers, getting one of the fastest players in the draft – and a new contract with a whole lot of money – might help smooth things over.
31 (63) Kansas City
OT Stone Forsythe, Florida
Assume Kansas City hits the pass rush with its first pick at the 26, and then it’ll go after more help for the O line with the next pick. The Super Bowl loss to Tampa Bay showed just how important it is to protect Mr. Mahomes a bit better.
32 (64) Tampa Bay
LB Dylan Moses, Alabama
There aren’t any glaring concerns, but the more young parts for the defensive rotation, the better. Moses is the type of guided missile hitter who would make an already good situation even more fantastic.
