CBS Sports Two-Round 2021 NFL Mock Draft 4-5-21

Trainmaster : 4/6/2021 7:53 pm
The first 20 players selected seem very credible as likely top 20 picks IMHO. Also, many seem to be good matches for the teams which drafted them. One exception might be Detroit drafting Fields instead of, say Waddle or Parsons.

IF the draft went as CBS projects and IF the Parsons is truly off the Giants draft board, I'd be fine with a trade down with New England at 15 or Chicago at 20. I think the trade down is likely only possible if one of the 5 QBs is available at #11.

My guess would be if it played out as listed below in the top 10, the Giants would take D Smith instead of Parsons, but I'd be OK with Parsons if Judge & Co have researched him and can live with any "character issues" (real or not).

Quote:

1 Jax Trevor Lawrence QB
2 NYJ Zach Wilson QB
3 SF Mac Jones QB
4 Atl Kyle Pitts TE
5 Cin Penei Sewell OL
6 Mia Ja'Marr Chase WR
7 Det Justin Fields QB
8 Car Jaylen Waddle WR
9 Den Trey Lance QB
10 Dal Patrick Surtain II CB
11 NYG Micah Parsons LB
12 Phi Rashawn Slater OL
13 LAC Alijah Vera-Tucker OL
14 Min Christian Darrisaw OL
15 NE Devonta Smith WR
16 AZ Jaycee Horn CB
17 LV Azeez Ojulari LB
18 Mia Teven Jenkins OL
19 WFT Zaven Collins LB
20 Chi Samuel Cosmi OL

Research on Parsons....asking coaches.  
George from PA : 4/6/2021 8:00 pm : link
The Giants will know the players at Penn St and several other schools better then most....
No shot we pass on Smith for Parsons

Does Detroit Pass On Smith For Fields?  
Trainmaster : 4/6/2021 8:09 pm : link
If not, does Fields (or more likely Trey Lance) make it to #11, making the trade down option more plausible?

If D Smith is gone, but Parsons, Slater, Vera-Tucker, Darrisaw, Ojulari and Collins are still there, do you trade down with Chicago all the way to #20 (say for an add'l 2021 2nd and 3rd) and risk missing out on 6 listed above? I'd probably say yes.

Giants do not draft LB's in the first round  
blueblood : 4/6/2021 8:27 pm : link
and definitely not one's that have a questionable background.. and NOT over Smith.. thats just silly.
Judge went to Penn State pro day  
Chip : 4/6/2021 8:42 pm : link
With Golladay signing ER bigger need.
Defense 1 and 2  
BillT : 4/6/2021 8:45 pm : link
Right.

Look at all, but select the BPA. GoDeep13 said they are spending the most time exploring the ERs, which absolutely makes sense. It also does not necessarily mean 1st round.
Love this mock!  
Emlen'sGremlins : 4/6/2021 8:54 pm : link
Parsons in the 1st and Tryon in the 2nd fills the two biggest needs on Defense at ILB and Edge. With this fusion of youth and crazy athleticism to the front seven our D would be lethal!
Taking Jevon Holland makes no sense  
jeff57 : 4/6/2021 8:56 pm : link
Giants aren’t taking a safety in the first three rounds, if at all.
It's the darndest thing  
santacruzom : 4/6/2021 9:25 pm : link
But this Mac Jones at #3 rumor really does have legs, doesn't it?
Yes....  
Brown_Hornet : 4/6/2021 9:33 pm : link
...to this draft
If you need an edge, then for God’s sake drop  
Bill L : 4/6/2021 9:50 pm : link
Their best value is near 20. Move to there.
Would love Tyron on day 2

If D Smith is on  
tyrik13 : 4/6/2021 9:57 pm : link
The board, he’s the pick, there’s no if an or buts about it. Next would have to be Parsons, Slater, Trade down in that order. There is no edge worth taking at 11, especially with the players like Zo Carter and Oshane coming back. Edge will probably come in the 3rd. We go Smith at 11, we’re going OG in the second unless Phillips is there. If Phillips is there we’re going OG in the 3rd and possibly 4th
I don't see Moore and Marshall hanging  
Joe in CT : 4/6/2021 9:58 pm : link
around to pick 60+. Both will go early to mid 2nd if not sooner.
National writers don't know any one team all that well.  
81_Great_Dane : 4/6/2021 11:04 pm : link
They pick accordingly. Very superficial thinking.

They could still be right.

Carter is coming back from a torn achilles, and Im just going to give you the benefit of the doubt and pretend you didnt just post Ximenes' name. He is fucking DREADFUL.

I can understand having hope for Ryan Anderson and Idgihibobobo (forget his name and dont feel like looking it up) picking up some slack, but you are kidding yourself relying on just those 4 guys to create outside rush.
I really doubt that Detroit picks a QB in round 1  
Tony in Berlin : 4/7/2021 5:36 am : link
They just traded for Goff who is 26 years old. They'd be stupid to start a qb controversy right away. They also lost Golloway and could use help all over. They could also draft Surtain to pair with Okuda.

Good pick up. Agree QB is not in the cards and WR or CB likely.
I’d be very happy with Parsons and Tryon  
Rjanyg : 4/7/2021 7:16 am : link
2 young front 7 defenders makes sense after 4 straight years of Offensive 1st round picks. Spend the rest of the draft on OL, RB and WR.
If the Top 3 WRs are all off the Board  
LTIsTheGreatest : 4/7/2021 9:17 am : link
wonder if the Giants seriously consider trading down where they could grab Zaven Collins an an extra 3rd round pick
