Verge's 2021 Mock Draft

Recommended Posts

People are acting like we spent 3 first round picks on Darnold. It’s equals a 3rd pick. If we used our third to move up and select Fields or Lance people would be thrilled at how little it cost. If we are lucky and the guy we really like is there at 8, next year’s second shouldn’t stop up from taking him that’s all I’m saying. If we PREFER Darnold over who is there at 8, then everything worked out great.

That's your opinion and you're certainly entitled to it (and have given logical reasons for it). I don't agree as we've discussed. 

The Panthers don't necessarily see things the way either of us do. We'll find out what they think Thursday night.🍻

I agree it's an unknown.

Verge doesn't think we take a QB. Other analysts like Jeremy Fowler have said that a lot of the teams around the league don't believe we will either.

I hope they're right, but again nobody knows.

How does a 2nd + 4th + 6th + cap room ever equate to a "3rd pick". 🤦‍♀️

In a few days there will be no equivalent to anything.

Somebody's got to explain the Wilson love to me. I don't see it.

(Edit: I have a ton of respect for Jeremiah's evaluations.)

I get the Wilson love. I just don't necessarily share it. His skill set is phenomenal.

On the flipside though, the durability concerns about him scare the hell out of me.

Part of me is glad that's not a decision we have to make.

I like Fields and I don't understand the momentum against him but Darnold was a higher graded prospect coming out than anybody in this draft other than Lawrence.

And they were terribly wrong which I get happens sometimes. But what is happening with fields’ grades is extremely strange. Like CRA has said fields has been 1b to Trevor Lawrence throughout his career and then something happened this process where Mac Jones and Zach wilson are grading out higher than fields? I dont buy it. I don’t wanna bring race into it but i don’t really know the explanation as to what exactly is happening with him. He can make all the throws, is a strong leader, is extremely bright with a photographic memory and is athletic as hell. He’s the full package.

I know this..... this board is gonna explode if fields is on the board and we trade down.  

I've said it before and I'll say it again. People are really overhyping Fields.

I don't want us to draft a quarterback, but I actually agree regarding the notion that Fields is sliding.

He was 1a with Lawrence forever. Granted, he had a couple of bad performances in big games and might be a tad inconsistent, but it's also true that nobody is a finished product right now.

Hell, Lawrence had some lackluster performances too.

trying to think if there is a first round pick we have made that I disliked more at the time than I will Horn at #8.....and I'm coming up with nothing....

I can understand that. It goes against what any one of have thought before this final week so yeah, it would definitely be a surprise. However, I'd honestly be surprised about it and not mad about. I'd have a much harder time dealing with Fields, Lance or Jones at 8 than Horn. I still wouldn't be mad about it but it would definitely be harder for me to understand. I mean, at least we NEED a number 1 corner.

Daniel Jeremiah and others inserted Darnold into this year's draft class and put him only behind Lawrence and Wilson.

He also thought Teddy Bridgewater was a top 10 prospect.  Guys with fancy titles have shitty takes just like the rest of us.

Since we've brought up the topic, what is it that's primarily bringing him down?

Is it the poor performances that he had in a couple of games late last year, the perception that he might not be as pro ready as others or something else?

I've seen different opinions, but there doesn't really seem to be a consensus.
