NFL Post Free Agency Mock Draft

This mock is sponsored by: Off Topic Sports Segment. Join our conversations in our Facebook group!

With several big names available in Free Agency still and a few Pro Days left that could change a few things, I decided to go ahead and drop 6.0

Previous Mock draft grades: 38.125% accuracy, last 4 years combined, which would put me at 33rd most accurate according to Huddle Report. Brendan Donahue of Sharp Football is the most accurate over last 5 years, with 44.8% accuracy.

  • 2018: 32 of 96 – 33% correct
  • 2019: 29 of 96 – 30% correct
  • 2020: 36 of 96 – 37.5% correct
  • 2021: 50 of 96 – 52% correct (tied for 6th best)

Previous Pick: Same

Pederson comes from Philly where OL is looked at very highly, so I have not changed my stance on the Jaguars bolstering their offensive line more to protect Trevor Lawrence. Cam Robinson has been franchised tagged for the second year in a row and they signed “The Sheriff” to play inside, but the line still needs more help at RT and LT in the future.

Previous Pick: Same

Projecting a QB here makes very little sense, and even grabbing an OL to play guard also makes little sense, although it is possible. The Lions have made a few personnel moves to use more 4 down linemen as well as cutting Da’Shawn Hand and Trey Flowers making DE a high priority.

Previous Pick: Evan Neal

The Texans are sticking with Davis Mills as their QB, so mocking a QB here is just asking to get this wrong. The Texans have several needs that they can fill, with OL and DL being the top priorities.

Previous Pick: Kyle Hamilton

The Jets will need to help solidify the OL with Morgan Moses now playing in Baltimore. A pass rusher is also a big possibility.

Previous Pick: Kayvon Thibodeaux

The Giants don’t necessarily need a corner, but Bradberry has a massive $21m contract that can be moved and is rumored to be on the cut/trade block.

Previous Pick: Trevor Penning

The Panthers are almost always mocked an OT, I am guilty of this, but it sounds like Christianson may get his shot at being the starter next season. If that’s the case, over-drafting a QB is not off the table here since Darnold and Rhule are both on the hot seat, but I think the defensive minded Rhule will try to replace Reddick’s production and then grab a QB in round 2.

Previous Pick: Sauce Gardner

The Giants did well by bringing in Glowinski and Feliciano to help solidify the interior offensive line. RT is still a real question mark with Solder, a free agent and Peart possibly not being the next guy to step up.

Previous Pick: Same

The Falcons have a lot of holes to fill on both sides of the ball. This is a team in full “rebuild mode,” so a QB should be completely ruled out in the first round of this draft. With Gage gone to Tampa and Ridley done for the year and maybe longer, WR is a pretty massive need.

Previous Pick: Travon Walker

The Seahawks have several spots that need to be filled, but this is not a team in “rebuild mode” according to many sources. Willis has been mocked here by a lot of people, but Carroll is rumored to be looking for a veteran QB to bring in over a rookie. Adding to the pass rush is a very likely option with the moves they’ve made during Free Agency.

Previous Pick: Charles Cross

The Jets brought back LaMarcus Joyner on a 1 year, $2.6 mil deal as a safe-guard. The position still needs an upgrade for now and for the future.

Previous Pick: Same

The Commanders made a trade for Carson Wentz which doesn’t exactly take them out of the running for a QB in this draft, but is likely to be done in round 2. They need to give the offense more weapons so that McLaurin isn’t constantly doubled.

Previous Pick: Same

The Vikings are possibly switching to a 3-4 base defense with the addition of new DC, Ed Donatell from Denver. 5-Tech DE is a possibility, as is CB since both starting CB’s, Patrick Peterson and Mackensie Alexander are currently free agents. Alexa

Previous Pick: Browns, Jermaine Johnson

The Texans still have many holes to fill. A WR has a good chance of going here but I’m going to help the offensive line. Tunsil has been shopped and will likely be gone by next season, so grabbing an offensive linemen who can either take over now or take over later might be the best possible thing the Texans can do.

Previous Pick: Jordan Davis

The Ravens added Morgan Moses to solidify the offensive line, and brought back former Raven, Michael Pierce to stop the run, which rules out Jordan Davis as an option. Madubike has been a let down, so that 5 technique DE is still a role that needs to be filled.

Previous Pick: Same

The Eagles have done a good job of bringing in a lot of defensive help, except for in the secondary. Slay is going to need some help.

Previous Pick: David Ojabo

The Eagles don’t take off-ball Linebackers in round 1, but with multiple picks, it’s easy to rule that “rule” out.

Previous Pick: Zion Johnson

The Chargers are losing Oday Aboushi to free agency, so a guard is pretty high on the priority list. Replacing Linval Joseph is also a very high priority, as is the 5 Tech in the disappointing Jerry Tillery.

Previous Pick: Same

The Saints need to find a QB. Taysom Hill is not the answer, and neither is bringing back Jameis Winston.

Previous Pick: Same

The Eagles need to do something about their WR core. They have not done well in the past drafting this position with Reagor and JJAW, but finally scoring with Devonta Smith last year.

Previous Pick: Same

The Steelers signed Mitch Trubisky in free agency to a 2 year deal. That doesn’t necessarily take them out of the running for one in the draft. Trubisky would provide a safety net and a bridge to the next QB.

Previous Pick: Devin Lloyd

The Patriots don’t like to draft WR’s in the first round, only 2 in the last 30 years! N’Keal Harry and Terry Glenn. The Pats really need to give Mac a better target to throw to with Bourne and Agholor being the best currently on the roster.

Previous Pick: Raiders, Jameson Williams

The Packers would likely love to get Jameson, with him off the board, the focus would be on defense. LB being BPA here, unless the Packers opt to go with a guard, which is possible.

Previous Pick: Andrew Booth

The Cardinals need an outside CB badly, but may opt to look into the 2nd round with the addition of Gladney. The Cardinals will need to fill the void that Chandler Jones leaves.

Previous Pick: Devonte Wyatt

The Cowboys will likely address the offensive line here with the departures of Connor Williams and La’el Collins.

Previous Pick: George Karlaftis

The Bills did a really good job filling needs in Free Agency, but White will still need help in the secondary.

Previous Pick: Tyler Linderbaum

The Titans have cut Pro-Bowl guard Roger Saffold, so filling that void on a run first team is a very high priority since it is a major part of their offensive identity.

Previous Pick: Kenyon Green

The Buccaneers should look to improve their secondary. Davis has been resigned, but Dean and Murphy-Bunting are two guys that can be replaced.

Previous Pick: Nakobe Dean

The Packers desperately need to add a WR, the last time the Packers took a WR in round 1 was exactly 20 years ago in 2002 with Javon Walker. Before that was in 1988 with Sterling Sharpe.

My comp for Treylon Burks is Laviska Shenault

Previous Pick: Dolphins, Treylon Burks

The Chiefs may need a WR, but like the Packers, they historically value that position in the 2nd round and later, they need more help on defense. The D-line, linebackers and the secondary.

Previous Pick: Daxton Hill

Again, the Chiefs may need a WR, but the value of that position is in the 2nd round and later, they need more help on defense. The D-line, linebackers and the secondary. Chiefs are talking with Stephon Gillmore, so this pick could change soon.

Previous Pick: Bernard Raimann

The Bengals did a really good job of improving the offensive line during Free Agency. Depending on how they feel about Carman, they could use this pick to slide Karras to guard. Or they could likely try to bolster the secondary.

Previous Pick: Same

The Lions don’t need to have a QB that needs to start right away. Goff has a contract that is unable to shed at least until 2023 making him a perfect bridge QB.
