This pick is also considered a lock. The Jets already traded away Sam Darnold and waited until after they saw Wilson at his pro day. There will be no surprise here. He is -2500 to be the second overall pick, placing him as a heavy favorite.

When the 49ers traded up to the third overall pick, they telegraphed taking a quarterback. The problem is there has been speculation about three guys. Some are convinced Alabama’s Mac Jones will be the guy. Fields is the most talented and played the most for the biggest program; plus he already has worked with 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan in a “Quarterback Collective” camp. Lance is a wild card because he has the most experience running an offense similar to the 49ers’. Fields is the betting favorite at -140, while Jones is +110 and Lance is +450. I think Lance is a real possibility as well.

Things get interesting here because no one is sure whether the Falcons will draft a quarterback, give the team another player to help current starter Matt Ryan have more success or trade back and acquire more picks. It makes too much sense to take a player like Lance, who isn’t necessarily ready to play as a rookie. They can try and make a run with Ryan and develop Lance, hoping they wouldn’t be in position to select a great quarterback next year. Quarterback is the favorite position for the Falcons to take first, with odds at +140.

While it might be attractive to the Bengals to reunite QB Joe Burrow with receiver Ja’Marr Chase, the fact is Burrow was hit far too many times as a rookie. They have to protect him. Many believe Oregon tackle Penei Sewell is a lock to be the top tackle taken, but Slater’s athleticism and clean play is going to be hard to ignore. He is a can’t-miss tackle. Slater is not the favorite to be the first tackle selected. Sewell is at -500. Slater is +250. Offensive line is considered the favorite for the Bengals to take first, with odds at +140.

The Dolphins traded down from No. 3 overall to No. 12 overall and then back up to No. 6. With a young quarterback in Tua Tagovailoa, it makes sense to go with a young playmaker. They already have a solid tight end in Mike Gesicki, so getting a top-tier receiver makes sense and Chase is that guy. He is the favorite be the first receiver drafted at -800. The Dolphins are expected to draft a receiver. That position is the betting favorite for the Dolphins to select first at +100.

The Lions, who let Kenny Golladay leave in free agency, need a receiver (several, actually). Tight end Kyle Pitts might be the best player but they just drafted a tight end in the top 10 a couple of years ago in T.J. Hockenson. Waddle is the guy. Receiver is the betting favorite for the Lions to draft first, with odds at +120.

Dan Arnold, who caught a career-high 31 passes in 2020, is slated to be the Panthers’ starting tight end. Pitts is dynamic and might be the most athletic tight end we have seen since Vernon Davis. Carolina gets a big-time playmaker for newly acquired quarterback Sam Darnold. Pitts is by far the favorite to be the first tight end drafted with -10000 odds. The most likely position for the Panthers to draft first is an offensive lineman, with odds at +110. Tight end would be a big upset and value at +1200.

Sewell has taken a somewhat unexpected fall and the Chargers are desperate to protect second-year quarterback Justin Herbert. They move up from the 13th pick in a trade, as the Broncos are fine at tackle. The Chargers are listed at +110 odds of taking an offensive lineman with their first selection. It is the position with the shortest odds.

Surtain becomes the first cornerback to come off the board. The Cowboys add an Alabama cornerback for the second year in a row. He is the favorite to be the first cornerback off the board at -300. Cornerback is listed as the favorite position for the Cowboys to select first, with +105 odds.

The Eagles’ biggest need entering the draft is at cornerback and they are in position to get a good one. He isn’t the first cornerback off the board in this mock draft but has the second-shortest odds of all the cornerbacks in the draft class at +225. Drafting a cornerback would not be a complete surprise. Wide receiver is the betting favorite for their first pick at +180, but cornerback is right behind at +190.

Denver is able to slide back four spots in the draft, pick up extra draft capital and also address one of its biggest needs at linebacker, landing an athletic playmaker who can run and cover. Head coach Vic Fangio will get great production out of him. He is the favorite to be the first linebacker drafted at -450. Taking a linebacker first is somewhat of a long shot. Quarterback is listed as the most likely position they take at -130. Linebacker is listed at +550.

The Bears, who fear the New England Patriots would select Jones, leapfrog them in the first round, moving up from the 20th pick to get their quarterback of the future. Andy Dalton is the starter this year but he isn’t the answer moving forward. They are willing to give up a Day 2 pick to move up. Jones isn’t liked by everyone, but he was every bit as effective as Tua Tagovailoa was at Alabama and he was drafted fifth overall. Quarterback is listed with +450 odds to be the Bears’ first selection in the draft. The favorite is offensive line at +260.

New England would have liked to have selected Jones and quarterback is the most likely position they select in terms of odds at +180. Instead, they go with Darrisaw, a tackle, who can fill a role now and should be a long-term answer at the tackle position. A lineman would be a surprise at +1400 odds.

The Cardinals lose out on the top two cornerbacks and top three receivers, so instead they go with protecting Kyler Murray. Vera-Tucker is a clean blocker and offers position versatility at guard and tackle, although many believe he will be a great guard. The Cardinals have uncertainty beyond 2021 at guard, so he can compete as a rookie and should slide into the lineup in 2022. Cornerback is the favorite position for the Cardinals to select first at +125. Offensive line is listed at +450.

The Raiders beef up their pass rush with an uber-athletic defensive end. He is freakishly talented with speed and strength. A defensive lineman like Paye is listed at +550 for the Raiders to select with their first pick. The favorite is an offensive lineman at +150.

The second pass rusher in a row comes off the board. Miami addressed the offense with their first pick. They address the defense with this pick with someone who played locally last season in college.

Washington adds an athletic linebacker with the ability to run and cover. He is versatile to play linebacker and even some safety. An offensive lineman would be the favorite pick here at +175 odds, but Owusu-Koramoah is too good to pass up. Linebacker has the second-shortest odds for Washington at +325.

After trading back six slots, they add one of the most talented cover corners in the draft in Farley, who comes with minor back concerns. He had back surgery to repair a bulging disk but will be ready to go for training camp. Cornerback has the third-shortest odds to be the Vikings’ first pick at +350.

Jenkins is a nasty and fierce run blocker who can also pass protect. The Colts are expected to select a lineman, as that position has the shortest odds to be their first pick at +115.

With the departure of Corey Davis, the Titans need a receiver to pair with A.J. Brown. Bateman gives them some speed to add to Brown’s toughness. Cornerback is the favorite position at +225 for the Titans to take first but receiver is right behind at +260.

New head coach Robert Saleh has his quarterback of the future and now will add a cornerback to bolster the defense. Newsome did not allow a catch for over 20 yards last season.

The Steelers lost running back James Conner in free agency and have the opportunity to take the most talented back in the draft. Harris is as sure a thing as there is this draft and should fit in nicely for the Pittsburgh offense. While offensive line is the favorite for the Steelers to take first at +180, running back has slightly longer odds at +200.

The Jags need a wideout and Marshall gives them speed on the outside to give their rookie quarterback.

The Ravens need a playmaker at receiver to help quarterback Lamar Jackson in the passing game. Moore can be that guy. Receiver is the favorite position for the Ravens to take first with +180 odds.

The Saints lost Trey Hendrickson in free agency and Cameron Jordan is 32 years old. If they are going to stay competitive after Drew Brees’ retirement, they need the defense to be better. Adding a pass rusher is the way to do that.

After passing on a receiver last year to select a quarterback, the Packers give Aaron Rodgers a target in Toney. Receiver has the shortest odds to be the first pick for Green Bay at +175.

Buffalo needs a cornerback and a pass rusher and they go with the extreme length of Rousseau. A defensive lineman has the second shortest odds for the Bills to select first at +300, with cornerback at +260 as the favorite.

The Chiefs released both their starting offensive tackles to start the offseason. Landing a tackle here to replace one of them makes all the sense. A lineman is the favorite position to be selected first by the Chiefs at +110.
