2021 NFL Mock Draft Featuring Coach T and Fitness Guru Brian Trainor

LordTreeSap, Brian Trainor and Coach T break down the NFL Draft with our official 2021 first round mock.

It’s April again, so you know it’s draft time. LordTreeSap is here along with his fellow NFL gurus Coach T and Brian Trainor to help you guys out with an official first round mock draft.

While Coach is preparing the gameplan of a lifetime this week, it’s not for the State Championship, our boy — a member of the historic 1,000 yard rusher club — is getting married on Saturday and he took some time out of ordering his Yorktown Football-themed wedding cake to give us a mock so shouts to the best offensive coordinator in the tri-state.

Trainor’s spent so much time in the gym this year, you’d think he was one of the NFL prospects preparing for the combine. With a torn labrum ruining that dream, F-45’s own skipped a couple sets of burpees and box jumps this week to give us his Mock 5.0 and he does not disappoint.

As for me, I’m just waiting for the fucking Portland Trail Blazers to win a game so I can keep a roof over my head.

Without further ado, the mock draft of a lifetime.

Here We Go – 1. Jacksonville Jaguars

Coach T: Trevor Lawrence QB, Clemson

Genius pick, right? Lawrence is going to be a stud. Doesn’t take a perfect IQ to figure that out. This is the last time I’ll ever say it, why couldn’t the Jets tank properly for my boy @lordtreesap #JetsHorrorStories.

Trainor: Trevor Lawrence QB, Clemson

LordTreeSap: Trevor Lawrence QB, Clemson

2. New York Jets

Coach: Zach Wilson QB, BYU

Chill with the Patrick Mahomes comparisons. Zach Wilson looks like the little brother of one of my players playing youth football. He happens to also have some really impressive tape. Let’s see what happens…at least Gase isn’t developing him.

Trainor: Zach Wilson QB, BYU

The kid is a winner on and off the field.

LTS: Zach Wilson QB, BYU

When the Trevor Lawrence dream died in Los Angeles, (Thanks again Sean McVay) my attention immediately turned to our new king Z-Dub. His stock has soared since the season ended and the Hawaiian-Mormon surfer bro has become one of the draft’s darlings. Now, the Jets screwed over Sam Darnold in every possible way, so I’m just praying we learned from our mistakes and give this kid the best environment possible to learn and grow. He’s already off to a good start with Saleh’s offensive staff led by Mike LaFleur replacing the GOAT Adam Gase.

Called it on the first day of the year.

3. San Francisco 49ers

Coach: Mac Jones QB, Alabama

This is where the world has him going, so I guess I do too. Now based on what I know about Kyle Shanahan, (best play-caller in the NFL) and what I’ve heard Trey Lance’s strengths are, I’m surprised there’s not more traction there. I think Shanahan wants a QB that he can connect intellectually somewhat with, and Mac provides that. Insane #’s this year, competitor, should come in and be able to run that offense right away. Jimmy G, you have some competition bud.

Trainor: Mac Jones QB, Alabama

LTS: Mac Jones QB, Alabama

4. Atlanta Falcons

Coach: Kyle Pitts TE, Florida

Chill with the HOF talk, but this dude is an absolute freak. A QB’s best friend is a TE, and new Coach Arthur Smith sure love’s TE’s. Atlanta can draft Pitts and have a huge big 3 with Jones, Ridley, and Pitts. OR can draft Pitts, trade Jones for capital, and go forward with their young weapons.

Trainor: Kyle Pitts TE, Florida

LTS: Kyle Pitts TE, Florida

5. Cincinnati Bengals

Coach: Ja’Marr Chase WR, LSU

I’ve seen all of this Chase and Pitts talk to the Bengals and I’m sorry, for their own sake, IT SHOULDN’T HAPPEN. You saw what a putrid O-line did to their FRANCHISE STUD QB. Go protect that man. Get the best OT in this draft and lock stud to protect your investment. Joe Burrow is a DUDE and if he’s protected, he’ll give the Bengals a shot year in, year out. Oh and Higgins/Boyd ain’t to shabby. However, Joe wants his stud WR. The Bengals went out and got 2 tackles (none of which can do what Penei can do). At this point, all signs pointing to Chase.

Trainor: Ja’Marr Chase WR, LSU

LTS: Penei Sewell OT, Oregon

6. Miami Dolphins

Coach: Jaylen Waddle WR, Alabama

The more tape I watch on Waddle, the moreI like him. He’s dynamic in so many ways, and I think the Dolphins pair Tua with  a deep threat that can make a huge impact right away.

Trainor: Jaylen Waddle WR, Alabama

LTS: Ja’Marr Chase WR, LSU

7. Detroit Lions

Coach: *Trade* New England Patriots – Trey Lance QB, ND St.

WOW!!! This is probably crazy, but Bill has realized in order to win in this league, you need a QB. Plain and simple. There are no QBs next year. Yes Jimmy G may be available. But c’mon, you’re not winning with him. Bill may not have many years left, and if he strikes gold, ya never know. Trey Lance to the Pats. Sap, thoughts?

Trainor: *Trade* Los Angeles Chargers – Penei Sewell OT, Oregon

LTS: Rashawn Slater OT, Northwestern

8. Carolina Panthers

Coach: Penei Sewell OT, Oregon

Penei Sewell is a beast. The Panthers go out and get an absolute savage in this draft.

*Trade* New England Patriots – Trainor: Justin Fields QB, Ohio St.

LTS: Trey Lance QB, ND St.

9. Denver Broncos

Coach: Justin Fields QB, Ohio St.

The Broncos have Drew Lock and DumpDownTeddy, and well they both stink. Justin fields was 1B with Trevor Lawrence at one point, and John Elway goes up and gets his guy (we’ve heard that one before).

Trainor: Micah Parsons LB, Penn St.

LTS: Justin Fields QB, Ohio St.

10. Dallas Cowboys

Coach:  Jaycee Horn – CB, South Carolina 

Jerry loves the “sexy” pick, and Horn provides that on the defensive side of the ball for the Cowgirls. Son of a former pro, he should be a plug & play week 1 starter.

Trainor: Patrick Surtain CB, Alabama

LTS: Patrick Surtain CB, Alabama

11. New York Giants

Coach: Micah Parsons LB, Penn St.

F the Giants. Okay, I’m done. Parsons is an absolute freak, plain and simple. Rushes the passer, plays sideline to sideline, can do it all for a team that goes with the best player on the board here.

Trainor: DeVonta Smith WR, Alabama

LTS: DeVonta Smith WR, Alabama

12. Philadelphia Eagles

Coach: Patrick Surtain Jr. CB, Alabama

I struggle with what the Eagles should do here and my mock has changed a lot (although 15 less times than Trainor to be exact). The Eagles have MANY needs, but I’d say Corner, WR, and LB are most important. If Parsons is there, TAKE HIM. If not, I’m good with Waddle/Smith or Horn/Surtain. I’m very confident it will be one of these 5 guys. As it pertains to this Mock, let’s go with Patrick Surtain, son of a former NFL corner who is ready to play and contribute right now. Any Nick Saban DB is NFL ready, and this kid could be special.

Trainor: Jaycee Horn CB, South Carolina

LTS: Jaylen Waddle WR, Alabama

Pat McAfee Epitomizes XFL’s Early Struggles

This weekend’s XFL was…okay. That is exactly what was wrong with it. Nothing special. A mixed bag. People are going to check in out of curiosity, but I didn’t see anything that would keep bringing people back for sustained success. The football seemed to be better than what we saw in 2001, but that’s not saying much.

There were two main problems. One is the gambling talk. It’s crazy to think how dramatically different sports coverage is today in terms of mentioning spreads. The announcers went way overboard. First of all, we get an over/under graphic (and Dallas -9.5) on the score bug. It was so forced and awkward. When people bet on games, they usually know what the bet is. You don’t have to keep reminding them about totals. Again, viewers had a graphic of the total to inform them anyway. If your game announcers aren’t talking about how there hasn’t been a lot of scoring, the sideline reporter is.

That brings me to Pat McAfee. This guy was awful on numerous levels. At least twice he mentioned that every XFL game of the weekend went under. That was strange and uncomfortable. Also, inaccurate. Los Angeles and Houston combined for 54 points. The closing total was listed at 51. Line movement indicated only a slight difference. Nothing more than 52. Already we have annoying, plus wrong. One or two things can be overlooked. However, you know what they say in commercials and infomercials. But wait…there’s more! One would think that the former kicker could at least pronounce a punter’s name correctly. Well, one would be incorrect. Marquette King should have corrected him to his face when they spoke. I definitely think somebody should have corrected him about the Houston game going over.

They had plenty of time before he reiterated the thought later on. Just read my tweet to him. Then, another mistake. Also on special teams, ironically. Dallas muffed a late punt but was able to get back on the football. McAfee proclaimed that it was game over before finding out that the punting team didn’t recover. Nothing like declaring the game over when it’s not. One of his partners even spoke about this and said he hoped that people didn’t change channels. Maybe ESPN knows what they are doing. I might have to catch McAfee next weekend to see how many more mistakes will be made. Still, that figures to get old in a hurry. Perhaps next weekend we can get the odds on this league coming back for a second season. Talk about that, Pat.

Breaking: The Giants Have Traded Odell Beckham Jr. To The Browns

Odell Beckham, aka the Giants best player on the roster and the most talented player since Lawrence Taylor, has been traded to the Browns.

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I hate this trade. What the hell is Dave Gettleman doing? WHAT IS HE DOING? He is Phil Jackson with the Knicks. It’s his last job and he’s doing whatever the hell he wants because he’ll collect a pay check at the end of the day.

I can’t even put a competent thought together. I’m so mad right now. Full blog with my complete thoughts will be out tomorrow. I will not sleep tonight.

Breaking the Bank: Here’s My New York Jets Free Agency Wish List

With the NFL’s tampering period beginning at noon ET on Monday, look for the Jets to be active with an excess of $80 million in cap space to spend on prized free agents. Remember, nothing can become official until the new league year begins on Wednesday at 4 pm ET.

Jets fans have been waiting for this day for a long time, really since the roster purge began two winters ago, ridding the team of veteran staples like Brandon Marshall, Nick Mangold, Darrelle Revis, and David Harris.

Expect general manager Mike Maccagnan to be very busy, as I assume we’ll hear about the Jets being “connected to” many of the big names free agents, especially in positions with a major need that should be addressed.

The Jets got off to the right foot on Sunday, acquiring former All-Pro guard Kelechi Osemele from the Raiders. Gang Green hasn’t had a mauler like that inside since bringing over Alan Faneca back in 2008. Without further ado, here is who I’d like to see NYJ sign this week.

cut (1)

LeVeon Bell: The 26-year-old made the polarizing decision to sit out the entire 2018 season unless the Steelers met his steep long-term contract demands. Pittsburgh decided to pass with John Conner in the wings. The Jets should be major players for Bell along with the Ravens and Colts, as the former Michigan State Spartan would immediately revolutionize a Jet offense with a dual threat playmaker we haven’t seen since the days of Curtis Martin. I’d expect his contract numbers to be in the ball park of Todd Gurley’s 4/$60 million extension. Other options: Tevin Coleman, Mark Ingram

giphy (66).gif

Golden Tate: It’s no secret slot receiver is a huge void on the Jets’ depth chart, along with not having a true No. 1 on the outside. This crop of free agents at WR should allow the Jets to fill the need in the slot and get by with a core of Enunwa, Anderson, and Herndon at TE. Golden Tate fits the bill perfectly, as a veteran who knows how to move the chains efficiently. I could also see the Jets going with a cheaper, younger option as well with Tate turning 31, like Adam Humphries, Cole Beasley, or Jamison Crowder.

giphy (67).gif

Trey Flowers: Maccagnan better do whatever he can to plug the gaping hole at edge rusher, which the Jets have been without really ever since dealing John Abraham to Atlanta over a decade ago. Trey Flowers had an awesome year up in New England, who fittingly opted not to pay the 25-year-old. Flowers became an analytics darling and should earn himself one of the most lucrative contracts cut this week. Other options on the Jets board should include the recently released Justin Houston and Anthony Barr. 

Matt Paradis/Mitch Morse: The Jets quickly realized their grave mistake of signing Spencer Long to play center last free agency, who was eventually benched by the mid-point of the year, as he seemed to botch multiple snaps to Darnold just about every game.

As Jets fans, admittedly, we’ve been a spoiled bunch with Nick Mangold and Kevin Mawae captaining the ship for the better part of my childhood. Maccagnan can right his wrong by going out and paying either of the top centers on the market with the Broncos moving on from Matt Paradis or ex-Chief Mitch Morse.

Image result for bryce callahan

Bryce Callahan: Bryce Callahan might not have been the most well-known player on the vaunted Bears defense, but opposing quarterbacks always had him in mind. Callahan posted one of the best grades as a corner, according to PFF in 2018. With Skrine (thank god) and Claiborne’s departures looking likely, Callahan would fill the void left at slot corner quite nicely, especially with Trumaine Johnson’s struggles on the outside last year. Other options: LaMarcus Joyner, Kevin Johnson, Jason Verrett, Ronald Darby.

 

The Official 2018 DMR NFL Season Preview

Are you ready for some football?

Tonight, the season kicks off with the Falcons traveling to the defending Super Bowl Champion Eagles. Can the Eagles repeat? Are the Patriots still the kings of the AFC? Will Le’Veon Bell ever play? There are a lot of great storylines and the season has not even begun.

Another season means it’s another year for predictions from the (so-called) experts, myself and LordTreeSap. In last season’s preview, I nailed the Cowboys taking a step back, but looked silly with the Raiders to the Conference Championship (RIP Khalil Mack). LTS had a little more success than me, nailing the Panthers as a dark horse as well as not riding the Jay Cutler train in Miami. However, the Chargers and Philip Rivers hate the first two months of the year so LAC did not make the playoffs.

How will we do this year? Let’s check out the predictions.

Team To Take a Step Up

DG: Houston Texans

Houston was decimated by injuries a season ago with the biggest ones happening to JJ Watt and Deshaun Watson. Both stars are healthy and both are expected to have monster years. DeAndre Hopkins is still a beast last time I checked. Remember the name D’Onta Foreman. The running back is currently on the PUP list, but if he returns from injury, there could be a competition in the backfield with Lamar Miller. I would not be surprised if the Texans go into New England this week and leave with a victory.

P.S. The obvious answer is the Packers, but that’s a no brainer. *Justin Bieber voice*

LTS: Baltimore Ravens

After just missing the playoffs at 9-7 thanks to a crushing week 17 loss to Andy Dalton, Joe Flacco returns with Lamar Jackson breathing down his neck and a totally revamped offense. It’s now or never for Joe Cool. Adding Michael Crabtree, John Brown, and Willie Snead should help rework a putrid passing game with a strong offensive line returning to help. Pair that with a potential top 5 defense and a weak AFC and Baltimore isn’t a team you’re going to want to face down the stretch.

Team To Take A Step Back

DG: Seattle Seahawks

I used to believe in the saying, “Death, taxes, and the Seattle Seahawks.” That’s how confident I was in Pete Carroll and the Legion of Boom. Now, it’s the legion of Earl Thomas (who just showed up to camp, by the way) as Richard Sherman went to the 49ers and Kam Chancellor hung up the cleats. The offense still has Doug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett, and one of the best QBs in the league with Russell Wilson. However, with question marks at running back and on the offensive line, the ‘Hawks will struggle to reach .500.

LTS: Buffalo Bills 

I don’t think I’ve ever been more confident in a team regressing than this year’s Buffalo Bills. They’re in no rush to see Josh Allen with Nathan Peterman under center. A dearth of weapons outside of an aging Shady and a horrid offensive line should make for a recipe for disaster. At least the Bills Mafia finally ended their playoff drought last season.

Dark Horse

DG: Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs have made the playoffs in three consecutive seasons, but every expert under the sun predicts that the Chargers will finally win the division this year. Did Andy Reid, a top 5 coach in the game, die? The answer is no. Why is there so much disrespect for the Chiefs? The answer is Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs decided to trade veteran Alex Smith in the offseason in order to turn over the keys to Mahomes. Mahomes can flat out spin the pigskin. The kid has a rocket arm and he’s mobile within the pocket. Mahomes will throw a good amount of interceptions, but they will be off of downfield throws, which is something they were missing with Alex Smith. There will be no disrespect out of this guy because the Chiefs will win the division.

LTS: Los Angeles Chargers

I loved the Chargers last season, but bad luck and poor late game execution plagued LA on the road to a 9-win season. Rivers and co. should separate themselves as the class of the AFC West with no true juggernaut. Opposing QBs are going to have nightmares going against a pass rush featuring Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa. Now, if a couple kicks go their way along with Rivers avoiding the dagger interceptions, the Chargers should find themselves back in the post-season.

Did Stephen A Smith Just Become The New Syracuse Football Head Coach After His Motivational Speech?

If this was a tryout, Stephen A Smith passed with flying colors. That speech gave me chills. Who knew that Stevie Smith (as I like to call him) was a master of motivation? Syracuse football needs all the motivation they can get after last season. In fact, there last four seasons…not great!

Maybe Stephen A is missing link to Syracuse football. Step aside, Dino Babers. Stevie Smith is the new head honcho. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. Stephen A is electric. Say what you want about First Take, but Stephen A outside of the studio is instant entertainment. I need more of it. Get this man to L.A. right now. WE LOVE IT! *air guitar solo*

It Looks Josh Gordon Has Been Working Out This Offseason

https://www.instagram.com/p/Bjs_etzBCNw/?hl=en&taken-by=flash

The rumors are true. If you’re not drinking and smoking before games and focusing on football and your health, results will show. However, these results are ridiculous. Josh Gordon could be an alien for all we know. His left arm looks like a giant pretzel twist.

Josh Gordon arm

The narrative for Josh Gordon has always been “If he cleans up his act, he will be a top receiver.” Gordon is 6’3″, 225 pounds (probably more now), and runs a 4.57. He’s got the size and speed, but Gordon also has immense talent. In 2014, Gordon tore it up for the Browns, leading the league with 1,646 yards receiving and scored nine touchdowns. Think about that. While intoxicated in 2013, Gordon was unstoppable for a franchise that started Jason Campbell, Brandon Weeden, and Brian Hoyer at quarterback.

Baker Mayfield sees the potential of Gordon as well.

“I’ve never seen anybody like him, bar none,” the rookie quarterback told reporters on Tuesday, per The Plain Dealer. “He’s definitely gifted.”

Josh Gordon is primed for a big year and fans are in for a treat. Good luck to opposing defenses trying to guard him.

New York Giants Select Saquon Barkley With The Second Pick In NFL Draft

Saquon Barkley is officially a New York Football Giant.

I said I would be a little bummed for one minute if we didn’t take Sam Darnold. I thought we needed to pick a successor to Eli Manning. Sammy D was the clear cut number one QB in this class. QBs are the most important position on the field and we just passed up on one who has the chance to be very special. It’s a tough pill to swallow.

One minute is over. Now, I don’t feel bad anymore.

Saquon Barkley was the best player in this draft, no ifs, ands, or buts. Saquon is the starter as soon as he puts the pads on. Just like I said Darnold was special, Saquon has a chance to be VERY special. Explosive, breakaway speed, and he can catch out of the backfield? Sign me up. With this pick, the Giants just said we are in “Win now” mode, which as a fan, you have to love. If we can sign Beckham to a longterm deal, we will have a nice 3-5 year window to do some damage. We’ll worry about the QB later, but right now, we have our franchise running back.

Welcome to the squad, Saquon! Let’s go to work.
