Kyle Yates’ 2021 NFL Mock Draft 1.0
We have now officially moved into my favorite time of the year: draft season.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the fantasy football season, but there’s nothing I love more than sitting down and getting to talk about these incoming prospects from college football and how they can improve NFL franchises. If you’re reading a mock draft in mid-January, I’m guessing you might have the same affinity for the NFL Draft and all that it encompasses.
I’m overjoyed to kick off our coverage of the NFL Draft this year by coming out swinging. Below, you’ll not only notice that we have a brand new look for our Mock Drafts (major credit to our graphic design team), but I’ve also included trades in this edition. Most mock drafts at this point of the off-season are sticking to the actual draft order, but I was simply too excited to kick off draft season that I had to go all out.
We’ve got a blockbuster trade at the top, a couple of key trade downs, and much more all found here in my Mock Draft 1.0. Sit back, grab a cup of coffee, and get to know these incoming prospects. There’s a possibility that they could alter your favorite NFL franchise forever, so make sure to get familiar with them now.
