The college season is over, the NFL season is over, and we are about to launch into full-on NFL Draft coverage season and the Combine.

It’s the perfect time to update our 2021 NFL mock draft that focuses on Pac-12 players I think will be selected. Consequently, I’ve included summaries for those prospective Draft picks we care about most, players from the Conference of Champions.

—First Round—

1. Jacksonville Trevor Lawrence, Quarterback, Clemson

2. Jets – Zach Wilson, Quarterback, BYU

3. Miami – Ja’Marr Chase, Wide Receiver, LSU

4. Atlanta – Justin Fields, Quarterback, Ohio State

5. Cincinnati – Penei Sewell, Tackle, Oregon

I’m seeing Sewell start to slip in other mock drafts, but I just can’t see the Bengals passing on him here with a chance to make him their franchise left tackle for Joe Burrow. I think the over-evaluating film cycle will swing back in his favor as the Draft approaches, and he will be the first offensive lineman off the board as soon as a team (like the Bengals) really needs one.

6. Philadelphia – DeVonta Smith, Wide Receiver, Alabama

7. Detroit – Jaylen Waddle, Wide Receiver, Alabama

8. Carolina – Trey Lance, Quarterback, North Dakota State

9. Denver – Patrick Surtain II, Cornerback, Alabama

10. Dallas – Rashawn Slater, Guard, Northwestern

11. Giants – Kwity Paye, Defensive End, Michigan

12. San Francisco – Caleb Farley, Cornerback, Virginia Tech

13. Chargers – Alijah Vera-Tucker, Tackle, USC

Tucker had such a good 2020 season, he has played his way into being the third offensive lineman off the board in the Draft. The Chargers need a ton of help for Justin Herbert on their OL, so a guy who can play multiple positions at an elite level like AVT would be a great grab here.

14. Minnesota – Christian Barmore, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

15. New England – Kyle Pitts, Tight End, Florida

16. Arizona – Jaycee Horn, Cornerback, South Carolina

17. Las Vegas – Greg Rousseau, Defensive End, Miami

18. Miami – Micah Parsons, Linebacker, Penn State

19. Washington – Mac Jones, Quarterback, Alabama

20. Chicago – Christian Darrisaw, Tackle, Virginia Tech

21. Indianapolis – Kadarius Toney, Wide Receiver, Florida

22. Tennessee – Jaelan Phillips, Defensive End, Miami

23. Jets – Terrace Marshall, Wide Receiver, LSU

24. Pittsburgh – Alex Leatherwood, Tackle, Alabama

25. Jacksonville – Jalen Mayfield, Tackle, Michigan

26. Cleveland – Carlos Basham, Defensive End, Wake Forest

27. Baltimore – Joseph Ossai, Linebacker, Texas

28. New Orleans – Zaven Collins, Linebacker, Tulsa

29. Green Bay – Tyson Campbell, Cornerback, Georgia

30. Buffalo – Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, Linebacker, Notre Dame

31. Kansas City – Rondale Moore, Wide Receiver, Purdue

32. Tampa Bay – Jayson Oweh, Defensive End, Penn State

—Second Round—

33. Jacksonville – Pat Freiermuth, Tight End, Penn State

34. Jets – Shaun Wade, Cornerback, Ohio State

35. Atlanta – Azeez Ojulari, Linebacker, Georgia

36. Miami – Najee Harris, Running Back, Alabama

37. Philadelphia – Eric Stokes, Cornerback, Georgia

38. Cincinnati – Rashod Bateman, Wide Receiver, Minnesota

39. Carolina – Nick Bolton, Linebacker, Missouri

40. Denver – Patrick Jones, Defensive End, Pitt

41. Detroit – Asante Samuel Jr., Cornerback, Florida State

42. Giants – Chazz Surratt, Linebacker, North Carolina

43. San Francisco – Wyatt Davis, Guard, Ohio State

44. Dallas – Ifeatu Melifonwu, Cornerback, Syracuse

45. Jacksonville – Paulson Adebo, Cornerback, Stanford

It’s a shallow year for cornerbacks in a year when a lot of teams need them, and that’s great for Adebo, who is slipping toward the Third Round. His length, talent, and what he proved in 2019 should get him off the board after the top five or six CBs have been selected. He could be a great Second Round steal if he can find his old form in the NFL.

46. New England – Tylan Wallace, Wide Receiver, Oklahoma State

47. Chargers – Trey Smith, Guard, Tennessee

48. Las Vegas – Deonte Brown, Guard, Alabama

49. Arizona – Travis Etienne, Running Back, Clemson

50. Miami – Sam Cosmi, Tackle, Texas

51. Washington – Teven Jenkins, Tackle, Oklahoma State

52. Chicago – Kyle Trask, Quarterback, Florida

53. Tennessee – Daviyon Nixon, Defensive Tackle, Iowa

54. Indianapolis – Greg Newsome, Cornerback, Northwestern

55. Pittsburgh – Levi Onwuzurike, Defensive Tackle, Washington

I saw Onwuzurike go up after the Senior Bowl on a lot of mocks, so that makes me think his name was out there a lot from scouts to media, even though I saw some negative reports on his performance. He’s a bit of a tweener at DT, but it’s also an incredibly shallow class at his position, and there are teams that really need them early in the Draft. Someone will definitely take him, loving his ability to possibly play on the edge at times as well.

56. Seattle – Jackson Carman, Tackle, Clemson

57. Rams – Liam Eichenberg, Tackle, Notre Dame

58. Baltimore – Brevin Jordan, Tight End, Miami

59. Cleveland – Marvin Wilson, Defensive Tackle, Florida State

60. New Orleans – Israel Mukuamu, Cornerback, South Carolina

61. Buffalo – Aaron Robinson, Cornerback, UCF

62. Green Bay – Elijah Moore, Wide Receiver, Mississippi

63. Kansas City – Creed Humphrey, Center, Oklahoma

64. Tampa Bay – Jalen Twyman, Defensive Tackle, Pitt
