First off, apologies are in order. I usually do three mocks and this season only two are being published. I finally put my biases aside for Evan Neal about the time that my second mock was ready and it felt wildly irresponsible to publish a mock draft I had no confidence in.

This is my final mock draft, so this mock has less of what I think these teams should do and is much more influenced by source-minded mock drafts like Peter Schrager's, scout-minded mock drafts like Daniel Jeremiah's, odd-based mock drafts like this one from The Draft Network and who teams have had on top-30 visits.

This mock is still three rounds so that we can squeeze as many Alabama Crimson Tide guys in as possible. Enjoy!

Harrison FInal Mock Draft: Round 1

Round 2

33. Jacksonville Jaguars: Lewis Cine, S - Georgia

Safety has been a big need for the Jaguars since the departure of Ronnie Harrison. Lewis Cine is one of my favorite prospects in this draft and fits the mold of what the Jaguars are building on this new defense.

34. Detroit Lions: Nakobe Dean, LB - Georgia

Back-to-back Georgia guys to kick off the second round. Detroit is often mocked to select Dean, but the 5th-year option is far more valuable on the quarterback. Picking so early in the second makes the wait safer.

35. New York Jets: Arnold Ebiketie, EDGE - Penn State

The Jets need pass rushers. Ebiketie sneaks into the first round from time to time. He doesn't wait very long on Day 2 here.

36. New York Giants: Nik Bonitto, EDGE - Oklahoma

Maybe a bit of a surprise, but the Giants are desperate for pass rushers. Bonitto is versatile and will attack the outside edge while Karlaftis puts his hand in the dirt.

37. Houston Texans: Kair Elam, CB - Florida

Kair Elam instantly becomes the top cornerback on this team. Wow, they have a lot of needs.

38. New York Jets: Bernhard Raimann, OT - Central Michigan

Raimann likely won't be pressed into action on Day one, but he's a nice safety net and development pick considering all of the starters Gang Green has picked up so far.

39. Chicago Bears: Trevor Penning, OT - Northern Iowa

Everyone can't be a first-round pick. Penning has attitude and fundamental concerns that absolutely could see him fall out of the first round. He won't get past the Bears though. Chicago is desperate for pass blockers.

TRADE: Cowboys give up 56, 129, 167 and '23 3rd for Seahawks 40 & 153

40. Dallas Cowboys: Tyler Smith, OT - Tulsa

Our first trade of the second round sees Dallas hop up to take a promising young tackle to replace La'el Collins. With the run on tackles to start the second, the Cowboys couldn't afford to wait any longer.

41. Seattle Seahawks: Boye Mafe, EDGE - Minnesota

Boye Mafe is a stud. Seattle has messed up drafting edge rushers on a consistent basis. This one should be a no-brainer if he's still available.

42. Indianapolis Colts: Christian Watson, WR - North Dakota State

Hard to believe Christian Watson fell, but the mid-20s run on wide receivers never happened in this mock. Matt Ryan loved throwing to Julio Jones for over a decade. Watson isn't there yet, but he's cut from the same cloth.

43. Atlanta Falcons: David Ojabo, EDGE - Michigan

It bears repeating, the Falcons just won't be good for a while. They can afford to take a top-10 talent in the second round and wait for him to heal up for the future.

44. Cleveland Browns: Jahan Dotson, WR - Penn State

Cleveland needs a wide receiver to pan out as a long-term option. Jahan Dotson is a first-round talent sitting at 44. Sprint to the stage for this one.

45. Baltimore Ravens: Jalen Pitre, DB - Baylor

The Ravens were really banged-up in the secondary last year, so the need at the defensive back is skewed. Still, a talent like Jalen Pitre gives the Baltimore defense some versatility with deployment and scheme.

46. Minnesota Vikings: Kingsley Enagbare, EDGE - South Carolina

Something about Enagbare screams Viking to me. Seems like a natural fit for need and value too.

47. Washington Commanders: Abraham Lucas, OL - Washington State

Sorry, still no wide receivers. Carson Wentz has to be protected to get the ball to deep threats Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel.

48. Chicago Bears: Brian Asamoah, LB - Oklahoma

It's a bizarre selection, I know, but the value is there and the Bears did host him for a top-30 visit. This is a talented wide receiver class, so the urgency may not be there.

49. Minnesota Vikings: Darian Kinnard, OL - Kentucky

Darrian Kinnard was a fun guy to watch at the Senior Bowl. He can play tackle or guard for the Vikings.

50. Kansas City Chiefs: Myjai Sanders, EDGE - Cincinnati

Yeah, Myjai Sanders isn't getting out of the top-50. Kansas City has a big need on the edge and Sanders has a ton of upside.

TRADE: Patriots give up 54 and 127 for Eagles 51

51. New England Patriots: John Metchie III, WR - Alabama

It was this Alabama receiver.

Gotta pay off the punchline.

The Patriots jump the Steelers (who are also interested) to grab Mac Jones a familiar weapon.


52. Pittsburgh Steelers: Marcus Jones, CB - Houston

It's no skin off the Steelers' nose though, because they like Marcus Jones. The tiny Houston rocket can fill the glaring hole at nickel corner.

53. Green Bay Packers: Nicholas Petit-Frere, OT - Ohio State

Bit of a reach, but the Packers don't need immediate help. Petit-Frere would be in good hands as he develops.

54. Philadelphia Eagles: Perrion Winfrey, DL - Oklahoma

Perrion Winfrey stole the show at the Senior Bowl. He could be the heir-apparent to the Eagles' senior defensive lineman, Fletcher Cox.

TRADE: Ravens give up 76, 119 and 141 for Cardinals 55

55. Baltimore Ravens: Travis Jones, DL - Connecticut

I noticed Travis Jones was simply falling too far. The Ravens had the best chance to move up and grab him. The Baltimore front office doesn't miss.

56. Seattle Seahawks: Roger McCreary, CB - Auburn

Seattle's needs all seem to be at the key positions of the Super Bowl teams. Weird. Well, Seattle can hope McCreary will be the next Richard Sherman and lock down the talented offenses of the NFC West.

57. Buffalo Bills: Logan Hall, DL - Houston

Logan Hall is an egregious steal for a team as stacked as Buffalo.

58. Atlanta Falcons: Jalen Tolbert, WR - South Alabama

Here's your wide receiver. He's not a number one, but he's better than anything on the roster. It's all uphill from here, Atlanta.

59. Green Bay Packers: Trey McBride, TE - Colorado State

Aaron Rodgers is always elite, but he becomes even more dangerous with a great tight end. Trey McBride is the best in the class and comes extremely cheap.

60. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jamaree Salyer, OL - Georgia

Jamaree Salyer helps fill in the gaps of the interior offensive line. He's no Ali Marpet, but he's a big mean dude that'll get the job done.

61. San Francisco 49ers: Martin Emerson, CB - Mississippi State

San Fransisco is also still efforting to replace Richard Sherman. Signing Charvarious Ward from Kansas City was a good start. Martin Emmerson should help fill in the gaps.

62. Kansas City Chiefs: Kenneth Walker III, RB - Michigan State

Because, like Baltimore, some teams just have all the luck.

TRADE: Texans give up 68 and 108 for Bengals 63 and 136

63. Houston Texans: Jaquan Brisker, S - Penn State

Like Travis Jones before, Jaquan Brisker was falling too far. Safeties just don't have eye-catching value. Good thing the Texans need everything.

64. Denver Broncos: Chad Muma, LB - Wyoming

A local kid who can come in and be a consistent piece for a long time. Not the most pressing need, but the highest-rated available prospect among those that have had top-30 visits to Denver.

Round 3

65. Jacksonville Jaguars: Quay Walker, LB - Georgia

66. Detroit Lions: Phidarian Mathis, DL - Alabama

Now that all of the Lions' highest priorities were filled, it's time to start bringing in guys that fit the mold of the team. Mathis will begin as a modern-day nose tackle in Detroit and, with good coaching, evolve into a respected interior pass-rushing threat.


 

 

67. New York Giants: Leo Chenal, LB - Wisconsin

68. Cincinnati Bengals: Rasheed Walker, OT - Penn State

69. New York Jets: Isaiah Likely, TE - Coastal Carolina

70. Jacksonville Jaguars: Dylan Parham, OL - Kentucky

71. Chicago Bears: Calvin Austin III, WR - Memphis

72. Seattle Seahawks: Desmond Ridder, QB - Cincinnati

73. Indianapolis Colts: Tariq Woolen, CB - UTSA

74. Atlanta Falcons: Sam Howell, QB - North Carolina

75. Denver Broncos: Daniel Faalele, OT - Minnesota

76. Arizona Cardinals: Drake Jackson, EDGE - USC

77. Minnesota Vikings: Kerby Joseph, S - Illinois

78. Cleveland Browns: Greg Dulcich, TE - UCLA

79. Los Angeles Chargers: Sean Rhyan, OL - UCLA

80. Houston Texans: Christian Harris, LB - Alabama

This was much farther than I anticipated Christian Harris to fall. He's got loads of talent, but his setbacks are the same as guys like Devin Bush. If he's able to overcome that, he'll be a rockstar in this league, helping to pave the way for the new age off-ball backer. He's gotta work on it quickly because despite being the Texans' 5th pick in this draft, he'd be an immediate starter.


 

81. New York Giants: Cordale Flatt, CB - LSU

82. Atlanta Falcons: DeMarvin Leal, DL - Texas A&M

83. Philadelphia Eagles: Deangelo Malone, EDGE - Western Kentucky

TRADE: Rams give up 104 and 211 for Giants 84

84. Los Angeles Rams: Troy Anderson, LB - Montana State

85. New England Patriots: Darrian Beavers, LB - Cincinnati

86. Las Vegas Raiders: Alontae Taylor, CB - Tennessee

87. Arizona Cardinals: Kyle Philips, WR - UCLA

88. Dallas Cowboys: Jeremy Ruckert, TE - Ohio State

89. Buffalo Bills: Nick Cross, S - Maryland

90. Tennessee Titans: Jelani Woods, TE - Virginia

91. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Eyioma Uwazurike, DL - Iowa State

TRADE: Dolphins give up 102 and '23 5th for Packers 92 and 171

92. Miami Dolphins: James Cook, RB - Georgia

93. San Francisco 49ers: Jerome Ford, RB - Cincinnati

94. Kansas City Chiefs: Alec Pierce, WR - Cincinnati

95. Cincinnati Bengals: Josh Paschal, EDGE - Kentucky

96. Denver Broncos: Coby Bryant, CB - Cincinnati

97. Detroit Lions: Cam Taylor-Britt, CB - Nebraska

98. New Orleans Saints: Eric Johnson, DL - Missouri State

TRADE: Commanders give up 113 and 230 for Browns 99

99. Washington Commanders: Brian Robinson, RB - Alabama

Look through that top-30 visit list and see how many times Brian Robinson's name comes up. It's a lot. He's going in the third round. The Washington Commanders trade up a few spots into the back of the third round to keep up with tradition in taking an Alabama prospect.


 

 

100. Baltimore Ravens: Wan'Dale Robinson, WR - Kentucky

101. Philadelphia Eagles: Jalyn Armour-Davis, CB - Alabama

Like their NFC East rivals in Washington, the Eagles have drunk from the Crimson fountain enough to know its life-altering benefits.

Okay, I'm exaggerating, but Jalyn Armour-Davis does help fill a need on a team slap full of Crimson Tide alumni. He'll need to bide his time, but after doing so at Alabama, he knows the hard work will pay off.


 

102. Green Bay Packers: Alex Wright, EDGE - UAB

TRADE: Vikings give up 156 and '23 4th for Chiefs 103

103. Minnesota Vikings: Carson Strong, QB - Nevada

104. New York Giants: Cole Strange, IOL - Chattanooga

105. San Francisco 49ers: Cameron Thomas, EDGE - San Diego State
