2021 NFL Draft Round One Picks

The 2021 NFL draft is now history and as most predicted Quarter Backs were in high demand. In fact, the first three picks were all QB’s and two more were gone by pick 15. There was no surprise with the No. one pick as the Jags as long expected took Trevor Lawrence and the jets also took the player they had telegraphed.

The 49ers taking Trey Lance was a slight surprise given his lack of experience and the quality of the opposition he faced in the FCS, however with Jimmy G still under contract they can afford to be patient.

Also of note was Kyle Pitt going at No. 4 – making him the highest selected tight end in NFL history. Having seen him play it is no surprise though.

Penei Sewell sliding to 7 will have delighted all the Detroit Lions fans, and Chicago snagging the 4th QB to go Justin Fields at eleven was arguably the best value pick of round one. The NFC North might be a bit more competitive in 2021 – especially if Aaron Rodgers up sticks and leave the Packers.
