2021 cbhsports NFL Mock Draft

1.Jacksonville Jaguars
Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson
Lawrence is a generational talent and is the obvious pick here.


2.New York Jets
Zach Wilson, QB, BYU
If I’m the Jets or any other team, I am taking Justin Fields but everyone else is on the Zach Wilson train, so expect him to head to New York.

3.San Francisco 49ers
Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State
San Francisco should not have traded up from number 12 to draft Mac Jones. Fields makes an immediate case to start and help the 49ers get back to the Super Bowl in 2022.

4.Atlanta Falcons
Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida
The best tight end graded ever by ESPN’s draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. and the best skill position player in the draft makes Atlanta’s receiving corps that much better than it already is. This is a loaded quarterback draft, so the Falcons should think about getting someone later in the draft who will replace Matt Ryan in a few years.

5.Cincinnati Bengals
Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon
If Cincinnati does not pick up Sewell, the best offensive lineman in the draft, I honestly do not know what they are doing.

6.Miami Dolphins
Ja’Marr Chase, WR, LSU
Chase may be a few years removed from a record-breaking Biletnikoff award winning season and a national championship for LSU. Since, he opted out of the 2020 college football season, but he fits well into Miami’s offensive system. Dolphins help QB Tua Tagovailoa out a lot here by adding a playmaker.

7.Detroit Lions
Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama
Waddle goes ahead of his Alabama teammate De’Vonta Smith, but either would be wide receiver 1 in a pretty bad Lion receiving room.

8.Carolina Panthers
De’Vonta Smith, WR, Alabama
The 2020 Heisman Trophy winner heads to Carolina to join former Jets QB Sam Darnold and talented receiver DJ Moore in Charlotte. This Panthers offense is underrated in becoming one of the best offenses in the NFL.

9.Denver Broncos
Micah Parsons, ILB, Penn State
While Denver could definitely draft a QB here, teaming the best linebacker in the draft up with Von Miller, who just signed a new contract to stay put at Mile High, would be a good move.

10.Dallas Cowboys
Patrick Surtain Jr., CB, Alabama
Of course there are many talks about Jerry Jones moving up to take star-studded tight end Kyle Pitts but the smart move is to take Alabama cornerback Patrick Surtain Jr.

11.New York Giants
Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota
Although many mock drafts don’t have the Minnesota wide receiver going this high, Daniel Jones needs more playmakers on the outside and he gets one here.

12.Philadelphia Eagles
Jaycee Horn, CB, South Carolina
With Parsons and Surtain off the board, the Eagles help improve their secondary with this pick.

13.Los Angeles Chargers
Rashawn Slater, OT, Northwestern
The Chargers need to protect Justin Herbert to even have a chance of competing with the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West so they take Slater here.

14.Minnesota Vikings
Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech
Minnesota might want to trade up to get Sewell or Slater because their offensive line was not very good in 2020. But, because there are no mock trades in my mock draft, they will settle for Virginia Tech’s Darrisaw here.

15.New England Patriots
Trey Lance, QB, North Dakota State
This might be the one of the top five QBs Bill Belicheck least wants, but if he is still on the board, the Patriots need help in the passing game and Lance will more than improve that if given the opportunity.

16.Arizona Cardinals
Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech
The Cardinals are set on offense but could use some help in the secondary, so they take Farley here.

17.Las Vegas Raiders

Instate foes Indiana, Notre Dame book series

Indiana and Notre Dame will meet up for the first time on the football gridiron since 1991, with scheduled match ups in 2030 and 2031. The two will open up the 2030 season at Notre Dame Stadium on August 31 and then head to Bloomington on September 27, 2031. Despite the fact that the two are in the same state, they have never played in the same conference. Unless Notre Dame’s seemingly stagnant contract ends with the ACC, it seems unlikely the Irish will go back to their roots, join instate foes Indiana and Purdue, and play regionally in the Big Ten anytime soon.

Former Michigan QB Joe Milton, who had been in the transfer portal since February, has committed to transferring to Tennessee. Once he graduates in May, he will be eligible for the Vols in the 2021 season. Despite being the starter in Ann Arbor in 2020 and throwing for 1,077 yards in five games including four touchdowns and four interceptions, Milton opted to transfer. He will join Tennessee with three years after an aforementioned graduation and will begin his studies in Knoxville with the summer semester.

NCAA approves one-time transfer waiver

The NCAA announced the Division I Council had voted to approve a plan that will allow all college athletes to transfer one time as an undergraduate without having to sit out a season. It will be applicable to football, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s ice hockey, and baseball at the Division 1 level.

Chet Holmgren, the number one ranked player in the country according to multiple services, including 247Sports, has committed and signed with Gonzaga. The big man for Minnehaha (MN) Academy played with Jalen Suggs in high school who went on to lead Gonzaga to a national championship berth. Holmgren chose Gonzaga over a final seven that also included the likes of Georgetown, Memphis, Michigan, home state Minnesota, North Carolina, and Ohio State. Holmgren is the highest rated prospect to ever sign to head to Spokane. The second highest ranked signed Zag ever is Jalen Suggs. However, he announced his intentions to enter the 2021 NBA Draft this summer.

Check out everything going in the 2021 NCAA college basketball transfer portal with that link.

Eric Musselman, Arkansas agree to new deal

Coming off of the school’s first Elite 8 in more than 25 years, Eric Musselman signed a new contract with Arkansas. Musselman got a lot of attention from Arizona, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, Athletic Director Hunter Yurachek got a deal done with Musselman, signing a five-year deal that will be 2021-2026. Also headlining the Arkansas off-season is transfer news. The transfer portal has become college sports version of free agency. Arkansas Forward Ethan Henderson quickly committed to transfer to Texas A&M after entering the portals day before. Arkansas Guard Desi Sills unsurprisingly announced his intentions to enter the transfer portal, then announcing he would either go to Auburn or Texas A&M, potentially rejoining Henderson in College Station. Positively, Musselman added three transfers that can clearly replace the production lost from the 2020-2021 team. Former Pittsburgh Forward Au’Diese Toney, former South Dakota Forward Stanley Umude, and former Miami Guard Chris Lykes. Guards JD Notae, Devo Davis, KK Robinson and forwards Jaylin Williams and Connor Vanover are all expected to return. Sit-out transfer Kamani Johnson, the former Little Rock Trojan, will also play a pivotal role in Fayetteville, four-star wing Chance Moore who will be a freshman in the fall of 2021, and JUCO transfer Akol Malwein will also play a big role.

Arkansas returned to the consensus number one spot in college baseball rankings this previous Monday following a series win over top-3 ranked Ole Miss. Arkansas followed that up with a midweek sweep of instate foe UAPB, which they won both games by a combined 38-5 after a 26-1 win on Wednesday. Arkansas brings a 28-5 (9-3) record into the weekend when they host Texas A&M for a three-game weekend series beginning on Friday night and finishing up on Sunday afternoon.

Arkansas football will play its 2021 Spring Game on Saturday April 17. The first team offense and second team defense will face the first team defense and second team offense when it comes to who the teams will be in the annual Red-White game.

Predicting where ESPN’s College Gameday will go each week for the 2021-2022 season

Today I predict where ESPN’s College Gameday show will go for their weekly preview show on Saturday mornings.

August 28
Nebraska at. Illinois
The only game between Power 5 teams in week 0 should be the easy choice here. The Huskers and the Fighting Illini square off in Champagne.

September 4
Clemson vs. Georgia (Charlotte)
While I could see GameDay heading to Atlanta for Alabama-Miami in Atlanta, Clemson and Georgia will be top five teams in the country when the two meet to open their seasons on September 4. The QB matchup between Clemson’s DJ Uiagalelei and Georgia’s JT Daniels will prove to be the difference in this one.

September 11
Oregon at. Ohio State
This game should be the easy pick in week 2. Two relatively young signal callers will meet in a game that could help each team’s respective College Football Playoff chances.

September 18
Alabama at. Florida
In what should be one of the better SEC games this season, the SEC Championship rematch should be yet another easy pick for the crew. Todd Grantham’s defense will do everything it can to rattle new Alabama signal caller Bryce Young and the relatively young Alabama offense.

September 25
Wisconsin vs. Notre Dame (Chicago)
Because the game is at Soldier Field, the choice is obvious. Two classic teams playing in a game that feels like one that is in conference. But obviously, due to 2010’s realignment Notre Dame wants to maintain its pride and football independence. This game should be a fun one.

October 2
Oregon at. Stanford
While I could see GameDay head to Boulder for another Pac-12 match up, I doubt anyone would miss seeing the potential number one pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, Defensive End Kayvon Thibodeaux, hard-hitting linebacker Justin Flowe, and the talented Oregon defense for a second time on college football’s premier pregame show. Stanford should be much improved in 2021, making this a roadblock to another Pac-12 Championship for the Ducks.

October 9
Texas vs. Oklahoma (Dallas)
New Texas Head Coach Steve Sarkisian will bring a new flavor to Austin not seen in past decades. Oklahoma has dominated the Big 12 in the last decade. Those are all reasons why ESPN should go to the Texas State Fair again in 2021.

October 16
Central Florida at. Cincinnati
You know GameDay always heads to a Group of 5 match up sometimes. The “Gus Bus” will definitely attract Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, and Desmond Howard as they head to Cincinnati for the game.

October 23
USC at. Notre Dame
The classic rivalry has not hosted College GameDay in quite sometime. And with the programs both set to be in the top 25 this season, it seems obvious for a return to South Bend for this match up.

October 30
Florida State at. Clemson
College GameDay has headed to Clemson the past few years for games and rightfully so. In my projections Notre Dame has already hosted it once, so they cannot head to South Bend again this week for North Carolina-Notre Dame. So, they head to Clemson for a match up with rival Florida State.

November 6
Auburn at. Texas A&M
The crew has not been to many SEC schools per my projections so they will change that when they preview Texas A&M battling Auburn.

November 13
Michigan at. Penn State
Both college football blue bloods had down seasons in 2020. The winner of this game will (hopefully) be able to challenge dominant Ohio State for the 2021 Big Ten crown.

November 20
Iowa State at. Oklahoma
The two split their match ups last year, with the Sooners winning the one that counted in the Big 12 championship. Oklahoma and Iowa State’s offenses both return their starting QBs (Iowa State’s Brock Purdy and Oklahoma’s Spencer Rattler) and lots of offensive weapons. This will be a fun one to go to Norman to preview this one.

November 27
Texas A&M at. LSU
While I could go with the obvious (The Iron Bowl or The Game), GameDay should head to College Station.Texas A&M is considered the second best team in the SEC West and could still have a chance at the College Football Playoff with a win. After a down season for LSU in 2020, they could be in the same sentence as Texas A&M and Alabama; in the mix for playoff conversation.

Before I sign off, I wanted to say I will probably make an updated version of this before the season starts.
