2021 NFL Mock Draft: QB Justin Fields lands with the Jets at No. 2 overall, Falcons select Florida TE Kyle Pitts at No. 4

Predicting the NFL draft is a fruitless yet satisfying endeavor. The draft never plays out how anyone hopes or dreams, but playing general manager for all 32 NFL teams creates a unique take on the proceedings. We see top prospects fall unexpectedly in almost every draft; we also see players who get picked way too high. It’s a fun exercise to try to predict every pick.

For this mock draft, I’ve tried to fill an immediate and specific need for the team in question, and that’s what the “key change” function is for. Every team in the league was bad in a certain area last season, and here’s how that changes with the new addition in this draft.

Colin Kaepernick could be potential quarterback replacement for Russell Wilson, Seahawks

Russell Wilson has not been happy in Seattle.

In recent weeks, the Seahawks superstar signal caller has publicly aired his frustrations with the organization about getting hit too much. Wilson has also expressed a desire to be more involved in the team’s decision-making, but the 32-year-old has not demanded a trade.

His agent, however, has come out publicly with a list of four teams Wilson would consider in a scenario where the franchise and star QB part ways. One of those teams, the Chicago Bears, are expected to at least “take their shot,” as ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported.

OBR 2020 Rookie Film Review: WR, Donovan Peoples-Jones

The Browns surprised some when they decided to take a receiver in their 2020 draft class with Michigan’s Donovan Peoples-Jones. Despite the surprise in the selection, the reasoning was quite easy to understand. The Browns front office, which is based heavily on analytical thought processes, loved the testing profile of the Michigan product who blew scouts away with his numbers pre-draft.

Russell Wilson potential trade scenarios: Cowboys, Bears, Raiders, Saints top list for Seahawks star

The Russell Wilson saga continued to evolve Thursday, as ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that while the Seattle Seahawks’ Pro Bowl quarterback hasn’t demanded a trade from the franchise where he has played all nine seasons of his career, his agent has a wish list in case that scenario comes to pass.

With the Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys, Las Vegas Raiders and New Orleans Saints as Wilson’s targets in a “in case of trade, break glass” situation, we asked our NFL Nation reporters from each of those teams to lay out their case for Wilson, and what it might take to bring in the star quarterback.

Report: Russell Wilson “stormed out” after his ideas for fixing Seattle’s offense were dismissed

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson publicly said what he needed to say in the days after the Super Bowl. Someone has been speaking privately since then, and it has culminated in a lengthy item from TheAthletic.com that takes the closest look yet and the fractures and fissures in a relationship that currently seems to have a shelf life far closer to bread than bricks.

NFL mock draft 2021: Mel Kiper’s new predictions for all 32 first-round picks, including Mac Jones, Trey Lance and three trades

My second mock for the 2021 NFL draft includes a first. This is the first time in my history of doing mock drafts that I’m going to project trades in my projection of picks 1-32.

I’ve always stayed away because it’s impossible to know how teams will maneuver — and what offers they could get — but this quarterback class is too good. I wanted to find fits for the top five in the class. So after I waived the no-trades clause for Todd McShay’s latest mock draft, I figured it was time to make a few deals myself. You’ll find explanations for all three of my deals below.

J.J. Watt free agency: Packers among leading contenders, several offers received, per reports

JJ Watt’s free agency is running wild and teams appear to be lining up to ink the star pass rusher to a deal. While Watt has a number of clubs vying for his services, NFL Insider John Clayton reports that the Green Bay Packers, Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans are viewed as the current front-runners to land the former Defensive Player of the Year. While those three teams are looked at as the leaders in the clubhouse at the moment, Clayton notes that the Browns and Raiders are among the many teams still in the sweepstakes. According to Dianna Russini of ESPN, Watt has received several offers from teams. The best offer, per Russini, would pay him between $15-16 million per year.

The Ideal Target for Every NFL Team in 2021 Free Agency

It’s never wise for an NFL team to build its foundation through free agency. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a good argument against this idea by building a Super Bowl roster with free agents like Leonard Fournette, Shaquil Barrett, Ndamukong Suh, Antonio Brown and, of course, Tom Brady.
