2021 Mock Draft – Vesely

By: Tyler Vesely, TGIS Prez

Round 1

1. Jacksonville Jaguars

Pick: Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson

I believe there should have been more of a debate between Lawrence and Zach Wilson, but you can’t go wrong with either. Jaguars snag their QB of the future.

2. New York Jets

Pick: Zach Wilson, QB, BYU

The Jets had the difficult decision to make between retaining Sam Darnold or take their chances with Zach Wilson. They decided back in early April that Wilson was their man.

3. San Fransisco 49ers

Pick: Mac Jones, QB, Alabama

Here is where the NFL draft gets interesting. The 49ers traded a boatload of picks to go up to get their quarterback. But is their quarterback Mac Jones or Trey Lance? Kyle Shanahan will love what Mac Jones can bring to his offense.

4. Atlanta Falcons

Pick: Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida

The Falcons should seriously consider taking Justin Fields at this spot as Matt Ryan is turning 36 years old and has shown a decline in play. However, from all insider sources, the Falcons are going to build around Ryan. An offense with Julio, Calvin Ridley, and Pitts should be fun.

5. Cincinnati Bengals

Pick: Jamarr Chase, WR, LSU

Jamarr Chase or Penei Sewell? The Bengals have the luxury of deciding between two premier players at areas of need. I believe the Bengals will reunite Chase and Burrow and focus on the offensive line in the 2nd round.

6. Miami Dolphins

Pick: Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama

The Dolphins lacked playmakers at the receiver position last year. That changes after they pick Jaylen Waddle who fits perfectly along side Devante Parker and recently signed Will Fuller.

7. Detroit Lions

Pick: Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon

Lions need to upgrade their entire roster. Might as well take a franchise left tackle and worry about upgrading the receivers later (Tyrell Williams, Breshaud Perriman, Quintez Cephus, and Geronimo Allison isn’t going to get it done).

8. Carolina Panthers

Pick: Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State

Are the Panthers go all in on Sam Darnold or bring in a backup plan? I would build around Darnold, but I’m thinking Carolina goes with Justin Fields as too good to pass up.

9. Denver Broncos

Pick: Rashawn Slater, OT, Northwestern

After trading for Teddy Bridgewater the Broncos have finished bringing in competition for Drew Lock. The trade frees up the Broncos to boost their offensive line with Rashawn Slater.

10. Dallas Cowboys

Pick: Patrick Surtain II, CB, Alabama

The Cowboys secondary was awful last year. Particularly, they have a hole at corner opposite Trevon Diggs. Look for the Cowboys to reunite the 2019 Alabama corners as the Cowboys starters in 2021.

11. New York Giants

Pick: Devonta Smith, WR, Alabama

Devonta Smith at this spot is too good to pass up. It would give Daniel Jones another weapon for an offense that really needs it.

12. Philadelphia Eagles

Pick: Jaycee Horn, CB, South Carolina

The Eagles need more talent at the cornerback position behind Avante Maddox and Darius Slay. Picking Horn can free up the decision to move Maddox to nickel with Horn and Slay as outside corners. That is a pretty solid starting secondary…

13. Los Angeles Chargers

Pick: Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State

The Chargers are reportedly excited about Trey Pipkins at left tackle. So instead of reaching for a tackle, they can draft a major impact player at the linebacker spot (even with them drafting Kenneth Murray last year).

14. Minnesota Vikings

Pick: Alijah Vera-Tucker, OG, USC

After losing Riley Reiff the Vikings offensive line is a mess. Alijah Vera-Tucker started at left tackle for USC and has the talent to play anywhere on the line. This will give the Vikings flexibility and talent to continue to protect Kirk Cousins.

15. New England Patriots

Pick: Trey Lance, QB, North Dakota St.

The Patriots get their longterm quarterback as Lance falls down to this spot. I believe a team, like the Patriots, could trade up for Trey Lance (but I don’t project trades). Trey Lance can take a year to get comfortable behind Cam Newton.

16. Arizona Cardinals

Pick: Zaven Collins, LB, Tulsa

I know the Cardinals took Simmons last year, but this is another scheme diverse linebacker who projects to fill a future need for the Cardinals. Collins plays between 260 and 270 pounds, but is still one of the more athletic linebackers in the draft. Collins gives the Cardinals another really good player in their front seven.

17. Las Vegas Raiders

Pick: Christian Barmore, DL, Alabama

Mike Mayock loves big school players. After releasing Maurice Hurst, Barmore can slide right in as a pass rushing interior defensive lineman.

18. Miami Dolphins

Pick: Kwitty Paye, EDGE, Michigan

After releasing Kyle Van Now and trading Shaq Lawson, it is time for the Dolphins to get another edge rusher. Kwitty Paye is a perfect compliment to current Dolphins defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah.

19. Washington Football Team

Pick: Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB, Notre Dame

Coach Ron Rivera called out the linebacking unit for being too hesitant. JOK is anything but hesitant as a big hitter on defense. JOK gives the Football team a compliment to current linebackers Cole Holcomb and Jon Bostic.

20. Chicago Bears

Pick: Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma State

The Bears lost Bobby Massie at right tackle. Teven Jenkins fits perfectly to slide right in. Jenkins is one of the best run blockers in the draft and will give the Bears an instant upgrade.

21. Indianapolis Colts

Pick: Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech

The Colts need a left tackle after Anthony Castonzo retired. Christian Darrisaw fits in perfectly to protect Carson Wentz.

22. Tennessee Titans

Pick: Greg Newsome II, CB, Northwestern

The Titans lost both Malcolm Butler and Adoree Jackson leaving them increbly thin at cornerback. Getting Newsome here is solid considering other draft experts put him in the same category as Horn and Surtain (not me).

23. New York Jets

Pick: Alex Leatherwood, OT, Alabama

The Jets got their franchise quarterback with their first pick and now they have to protect him. Alex Leatherwood gives the Jets an immediate upgrade as a player with position flexibility at either guard or tackle.

24. Pittsburgh Steelers

Pick: Najee Harris, RB, Alabama

The Steelers need a play making running back after struggling to run the ball last year. This is the area where Najee Harris will go as a do-it-all guy who instantly improves an offense.

25. Jacksonville Jaguars

Pick: Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU

The Jaguars talent at safety is severely lacking. Moehrig provides an immediate upgrade as one of the cleanest players in the draft.

26. Cleveland Browns

Pick: Jaelen Phillips, EDGE, Miami

The Browns have a one year deal with Jadaveon Clowney and need a long term option outside of Myles Garrett. Grabbing Phillips this late would be a great pick.

27. Baltimore Ravens

Pick: Elijah Moore, WR, Ole Miss

Baltimore is in the wide receiver market after missing on a few free agent wide receivers. Elijah Moore is widely regarded the number four wideout in the draft and would fit Baltimore’s offense as a small receiver who can get open quick.

28. New Orleans Saints

Pick: Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech

After losing Janoris Jenkins, the Saints need to reload at cornerback. Caleb Farley has some medical concerns with his back, but has top 15 talent in this draft.

29. Green Bay Packers

Pick: Richie Grant, S, Central Florida

Green Bay’s new defensive coordinator Joe Barry loves hybrid safeties. Richie Grant fits that role as someone that can cover man-to-man or ballhawk from the free safety position.

30. Buffalo Bills

Pick: Travis Etienne Jr., RB, Clemson

The Bills have Devin Singletary and Zack Moss, but they are best as complimentary running backs. Travis Etienne gives them a home run threat out of the backfield who also excels as a receiver.

31. Baltimore Ravens

Pick: Azeez Ojulari, EDGE, Georgia

Ravens lost three outside linebackers off last years team. Ojulari provides them a needed pass rusher for the defense.

32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Pick: Joe Tryon, EDGE, Washington

The Bucs really don’t have a huge area of need. Joe Tryon gives them a pass rusher of the future behind Shaquans Barrett and JPP.

Round 2

33. Jacksonville Jaguars

Pick: Levi Onwuzurike, DL, Washington

34. New York Jets

Pick: Eric Stokes, CB, Georgia

35. Atlanta Falcons

Pick: Gregory Rousseau, EDGE, Miami

Pick: Landon Dickerson, C, Alabama

37. Philadelphia Eagles

Pick: Nick Bolton, LB, Missouri

Pick: Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas

Pick: Elijah Molden, CB, Washington

Bowl Mania Picks (Part 2)

2020 SEASON RECORD: 79-56-1 (58.1%)

2020 Bowl Record: 4-2

TGIS continues to stay at around 60% after a good Bowl Week start… HERE ARE THE REST OF THE BOWL PICKS

Bowl Game Picks (All Times CST)

December 25th

Buffalo (-6.5) vs. Marshall – 1:30pm

I’ll never forget about Marshall getting beat 20-0 against Rice… take Buffalo 

December 26th

Louisiana Lafayette vs. UTSA (+14) – 2:30pm

Reminder: UTSA’s game against BYU was single digits… take the points.

Georgia State (-3.5) vs. Western Kentucky – 2:30pm

The Panthers are the much better team than a Western Kentucky that struggles against better teams. Take Georgia State.

Coastal Carolina vs. Liberty (+7) – 6:30pm

Liberty is a good football team that just might win. Coastal Carolina struggled against an average Troy team and I don’t think they finish undefeated, take the points and sprinkle the moneyline.

December 29th

#18 Miami (+3.5) vs #21 Oklahoma State – 4:30pm

I’ve learned this year I can’t trust Spencer Sanders. On the other hand, D’Eriq King will have a great game and give the Pokes Defense something they haven’t seen. Miami wins by a TD.

#20 Texas (-10) vs. Colorado – 8:00pm

Sure Texas has had players opt out… but I’m not buying the Buffs are as good as their record says they are. Texas in a blowout.

December 30th

Wake Forest (+9) vs. Wisconsin – 8:00pm

Wisconsin’s offense has gone flat scoring just over 9 points per game over the last four games. Take the points and take the win.

Oklahoma vs. Florida (+7) – 8:00pm

Kyle Trask is going out with a bang. The Sooner defense has not seen an offense like Florida’s which I fully expect to score at least 50. The Florida Defense gets enough stops to win.

December 31st

#24 Tulsa vs. Mississippi State (+2.5) – 8:00pm

Expect a low scoring slug fest. Both defenses are great but the Bulldogs have just a little bit more offense to win or at least cover. 

Ball State vs. San Jose State (-7.5) – 8:00pm

San Jose State is undefeated and will look to finish that way behind the leadership of QB Nick Starkel. Ball State has been messing around in the MAC and will lose by double digits to San Jose State.

West Virginia vs. Army (+9) – 8:00pm

Army was begging for a game and they will come out to play. Army plays slow so nine points is way too many. Also sprinkle the moneyline.

January 1st

#8 Cincinnati vs. #9 Georgia (-7) – 11:00am

The Bulldogs are playing some of their best football with JT Daniels. I don’t think the Bearcats will be able to score enough to keep up. Especially considering how poorly the AAC has done this bowl season.

Auburn (+3.5) vs. #14 Northwestern – Noon

Sure the coaching staff is a mess. But Northwestern won’t be able to move the ball on Auburn. Auburn will muster a few scores for the win.

#1 Alabama (-19) vs. #4 Notre Dame – 3:00pm

Bama is just too good for Notre Dames defense to stop them and Ian Book won’t be able to put up enough points to keep up. Bama by 30.

#2 Clemson (-7.5) vs. #3 Ohio State – 7:00pm

To beat Ohio State you have to be able to throw against their poor secondary. Well… Trevor Lawrence is going to have a field day. Clemson BIG.

January 2nd

#23 NC State (+2.5) vs. Kentucky – 11:00am

Kentucky had a disappointing year including only a 3 point win over Vanderbilt. NC State has been battle tested in close games. Take the points in this close matchup.

Ole Miss (+8.5) vs. #11 Indiana – 11:30pm

Don’t forget Indiana is on their backup QB. Meaning I can’t see them scoring enough points to keep up with  Lane Kiffin’s offense. Ole Miss not only covers… but wins also.

#25 Oregon (+4.5) vs. #10 Iowa State – 3:00pm

Iowa State will struggle to move the ball against a tough Oregon defense. Expect a close defensive battle… so take the points.

#5 Texas A&M (-7.5) vs. #13 North Carolina – 7:00pm

North Carolina has had too many players opt out. Texas A&M is also looking to prove something after being left out of the playoffs. Texas A&M in a blowout.

BOWL MANIA PICKS (Part 1)

2020 SEASON RECORD: 79-56-1 (58.1%)

We flirted with over60%, but a rough Week 15 put us just under. Anyways… HERE ARE THIS WEEK’S BOWL PICKS:

Bowl Game Picks (All Times CST)

Appalachian State (-19) vs. North Texas – Monday 1:30pm

North Texas defense is awful. Appalachian State will score at will and 19 points really isn’t that much. App State covers.

Tulane (-3.5) vs. Nevada – Tuesday 6:00pm

Tulane is a good AAC team that went down to the wire with Tulsa. I don’t really trust Nevada after many close games against average Moutain West teams… Tulane wins by a touchdown.

#16 BYU (-4) vs. UCF – Tuesday 6:00pm

UCF has given up an average of 41 points the past week to South Florida and Cincinnati. BYU and Zach Wilson will run it up on UCF.

Georgia Southern (-4) vs. Louisiana Tech– Wednesday 2:00pm

Trust the triple option during Bowl week. Louisiana Tech won’t have much practice time to learn to stop it… Georgia Southern runs it all over Louisiana Tech.

Memphis vs FAU (+10.5)– Wednesday 6:00pm

This isn’t last year’s Memphis and this is too many points. FAU covers.

Houston vs. Hawaii (+13) – Thursday 2:30pm

Way too many points for a 3-4 Houston team… might even sprinkle on the moneyline for Hawaii.

Week 15 College Football Preview

2020 SEASON RECORD: 77-51-0 (60.2%)

WE ARE OVER 60%!!! Easily one of the highest percentages in College Football Nation. The Mac Jones of pick’em this year… SO HERE ARE THIS WEEK’S PICKS:

Week 15 Games of the Week (All Times CST)

#3 Clemson vs. #2 Notre Dame (+10.5) – Saturday 7:00pm

Notre Dame proved they could play with Clemson the first time, they definitely can do it again. Too much is being made out of Trevor Lawrence not playing when DJU played very well. Overall, I think Clemson wins because of injured players coming back on defense… but it will be close.

Pick: Clemson 30-24

#1 Alabama (-17) vs. #7 Florida – Saturday 7:00pm

Why would I stop trusting Alabama? Especially after they keep beating teams by 30 and Fraudulent Florida poked their head out last week. Bama huge and Devonta Smith for Heisman.

Pick: Alabama 51-24

Top Picks of the Week

Oregon (+3) at #13 USC – Friday 7:00pm

Oregon backs their way into this game and I’m taking the points. USC plays all teams close, including a bad Arizona team.

#14 Northwestern vs #4 Ohio State (-19) – Saturday 11:00am

19 points isn’t enough. To compete with Ohio State you have to throw the football… Northwestern can’t do that. Ohio State big.

#10 Oklahoma vs #6 Iowa State (+6) – Saturday 11:00am

Iowa State beat the same Oklahoma team once… why would I not think they could keep it close again?

Missouri (-1.5) at Mississippi State– Saturday 2:30pm

People need to stop pretending the 2-7 Mississippi State football team is good… they’re not. Missouri wins.

Ole Miss (-1) at LSU – Saturday 2:30pm

Do not be fooled by LSU… they are still not good offensively. No way LSU will be able to keep up with Ole Miss’s offense.

Tulsa (+14.5) at #9 Cincinnati – Saturday 7:00pm

This will be a low scoring slugfest. So of course I’m taking Tulsa and the points. Maybe even a little moneyline sprinkle.

WEEK 14 COLLEGE FOOTBALL PREVIEW

2020 SEASON RECORD: 74-50-0 (59.7%)

Another great week and we are almost to 60%.. It is a smaller slate this week…. SO HERE ARE THIS WEEK’S PICKS:

Week 14 Game of the Week (All Times CST)

Army (-7.5) vs. Navy – Saturday 11:00am

This rivalry could go either way… but we are trusting Army.

Pick: Army 24-13

Top Picks of the Week

#1 Alabama (-32) at Arkansas – Saturday 11:00am

Alabama continues its dominance. 32 points is not enough.

LSU at #6 Florida (-22.5) – Saturday 6:00pm

Florida is going to put it on. Not as bas as Alabama, but close.

#22 Oklahoma State (-5) at Baylor – Saturday 6:00pm

Texas A&M struggled last week against a LSU team that stinks. Auburn can keep it close.

Week 13 College Football Preview

2020 SEASON RECORD: 67-47-0 (58.8%)

The hot 2020 season continues as we moved to almost 59% after a 5-2 week. Coming down the stretch… HERE ARE THIS WEEK’S PICKS:

Week 13 Game of the Week (All Times CST)

#13 BYU at #18 Coastal Carolina (+10) – Saturday 4:30pm

BYU finally has a real challenger. I think undefeated Coastal Carolina can keep it close, but in the end this BYU team is to powerful offensively. BYU by single digits.

Pick: BYU 34-27

Top Picks of the Week

#4 Ohio State (-23.5) at Michigan State – Saturday 11:00am

To keep a game against Ohio State close you need to be able to throw the ball… Michigan State cannot do that.

#15 Oklahoma State at TCU UNDER 51.5 – Saturday 11:00am

Both Oklahoma State and TCU are better defensively this year… the under is hitting.

#5 Texas A&M at Auburn (+7) – Saturday 11:00am

Texas A&M struggled last week against a LSU team that stinks. Auburn can keep it close.

Arkansas (+3) at Missouri– Saturday 11:00am

Arkansas is the better team… Arkansas wins.

Syracuse (+33.5) at #2 Notre Dame – Saturday 1:30pm

Too many points against a Notre Dame team I don’t totally trust.

#12 Indiana at #16 Wisconsin OVER 45 – Saturday 2:30pm

I hate myself for this… but I still believe in Wisconsin QB Graham Mertz. OVER HITS.

#3 Clemson (-21.5) at Virginia Tech – Saturday 6:30pm

Clemson is starting to get healthy on the defensive end… this line is disrespectful with Clemson blowing them out.

#1 Alabama (-28.5) at LSU – Saturday 7:00pm

ALBAMA DEATH KILLING MACHINE. REVENGE GAME. Don’t overthink it… Tide by 35.

Washington State (+13) at #20 USC – Sunday 6:30pm

I’m supposed to trust this USC team to cover 13 points?

Week 12 College Football Preview

2020 SEASON RECORD: 62-45-0 (57.9%)

EXTRA EARLY THANKSGIVING TGIS PICKS!! Last week we went 4-5 and had the first week in awhile where we were under 50%… not this week though. HERE ARE THIS WEEK’S PICKS:

Week 12 Game of the Week (All Times CST)

#22 Auburn at #1 Alabama (-24.5) – Saturday 2:30pm

Alabama is on a revenge tour and the team squarely in the cross-hairs after last year is Auburn. It doesn’t matter Saban isn’t there, this Alabama team will be ready to play. And also… YOU CAN’T TRUST BO NIX!

Pick: Alabama 52-21

Top Picks of the Week

#13 Iowa State (+1.5) at #17 Texas– Friday 11:00am

Wrong team is favored. Iowa State is coming off a blow out win and is looking like one of the top teams in the Big 12. Meanwhile, some people are getting fooled from Texas’s close wins against West Virginia and Oklahoma State. Iowa State wins this game.

#2 Notre Dame (-4.5) at #19 North Carolina – Friday 2:30pm

I don’t know why… but Vegas keeps thinking North Carolina is good. They’re not. Notre Dame by a touchdown or more.

Kentucky at #6 Florida OVER 61 – Saturday 11:00am

Alabama put 63 on Kentucky last week. Florida should be able to score plenty also. Florida overs keep cashing.

Texas Tech (+11) at #23 Oklahoma State – Saturday 11:00am

Oklahoma State was exposed last week against Oklahoma. Meanwhile Texas Tech plays most of the Big 12 teams tough… take Red Raiders and the points.

Louisville at Boston College (-1) – Saturday 3:00pm

Boston College is a solid ACC team. Louisville is not. The line makes no sense so be weary on late breaking news.

LSU at #5 Texas A&M OVER 63.5 – Saturday 6:00pm

Texas A&M has averaged 45 points the past two weeks. LSU will keep it close and put up points also. This matchup screams shootout over.

WEEK 11 COLLEGE FOOTBALL PREVIEW

2020 SEASON RECORD: 58-41-0 (58.6%)

TGIS’s HOT STREAK CONTINUES!! Last week went 7-3 and we are almost to 60%!! Continue to bet with TGIS and you win money. HERE ARE THIS WEEK’S PICKS:

Week 11 Game of the Week (All Times CST)

#9 Indiana (+21) at #3 Ohio State – Saturday 11:00am

Ohio State beat Penn State by 13 points and Rutgers by 22 points. Indiana has proven to probably be the second or third best team in the Big Ten… and I get 21 points against an unproven Ohio State? Indiana keeps this a game until the Fourth Quarter.

Pick: Ohio State 38-21

Top Picks of the Week

#6 Florida (-31.5) at Vanderbilt– Saturday 11:00am

Vanderbilt is the doormat of the SEC and 31 points is not enough against an explosive Florida offense. Florida beats them by 40 points.

Kansas State (+12) at #17 Iowa State – Saturday 3:00pm

Iowa State doesn’t blow teams out… so giving a resilient Wildcats team double digits is not even fair. Kansas State covers and sprinkle some on the moneyline for a potential win.

Kentucky at #1 Alabama (-31) – Saturday 3:00pm

Alabama will continually destroy teams for the rest of the year… just keep betting Bama.

#10 Wisconsin (-6.5) at #19 Northwestern OVER 43.5– Saturday 3:30pm

This isn’t your Father’s Wisconsin team. Graham Mertz puts up points where Wisconsin could get 43.5 by themselves. Take Wisconsin and the Over.

Missouri (-5.5) at South Carolina– Saturday 6:30pm

South Carolina had just about everyone opt out when their coach was fired. This is a defeated team who will get crushed on Saturday. Mizzou by double digits.

Mississippi State (+25.5) at #13 Georgia – Saturday 6:30pm

Sure Mississippi State has less than 53 players on Saturday. But the way Georgia’s offense looks right now I don’t trust the line. Even with JT Daniels starting on Saturday.

#14 Oklahoma State at #18 Oklahoma OVER 59 – Saturday 6:30pm

Oklahoma home “Overs” always hit. No matter how improved Oklahoma State defense looked to improve… there will be points in Bedlam. Expect a high scoring close game.
