NFL.com’s Peter Schrager Gives Washington a Running Back at Pick 19 in His Mock Draft 2.0

NCAA Football: Sugar Bowl-Ohio State vs Clemson Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

I’m sorry - It’s hard to write this with a straight face...

NFL.com’s football “analyst” and co-host of Good Morning Football, released his 2021 NFL Mock Draft 2.0 this morning...and boy is it a DOOZIE!

You can view the entire mock draft here.


First, let’s address the Washington Football Team’s selection so thoughtfully given by Schrager.

Washington Football Team - Pick 19

Travis Etienne

Clemson · RB

First-round running backs might be a dying breed, but I love this addition to Scott Turner’s offense. Etienne is electric between the tackles and in the open field as a ball carrier, but also adds value in the passing game. Washington still needs another playmaker or two on offense to be a threat in the NFC.

Wow - I literally have no words to describe this...so, I’ll let you guys have fun with it in the comments section.


Some other head-scratchers:

Carolina Panthers - Pick 8

Justin Fields

Ohio State · QB

The word linked to Carolina’s pick at No. 8 is “optionality,” which is what the Sam Darnold trade provided the Panthers at the quarterback position. I’m not convinced the team is settled at the QB spot just yet. Remember, Darnold’s fifth-year option still hasn’t officially been picked up, and there’s been no long-term extension inked yet. Until those things happen, quarterback is still very possible here.

Ok, had the Panthers just not traded for Darnold, and said they will pick up his 5th year option, I could see a QB here...but not now.

New England Patriots

(via Eagles)

TRADE

DeVonta Smith

Alabama · WR

Everyone seems to think Philadelphia is looking to trade up into the top 10, but I believe the Eagles are a prime team to trade down, looking to squeeze out another first-round pick for next year — giving them potentially four in 2022 — or an additional second-rounder in 2021. New England gives up its second-round pick (No. 46) to move up three spots for the Heisman-winning, Nick Saban-endorsed star WR1.

In WHAT WORLD does Bill Belichick trade pick number 46 to move up THREE SPOTS!


Mock draft season is so much fun, and THIS particular mock draft goes to show anyone with a pulse can put one out.
