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.

The Official DMR 2020 NFL Mock Draft Featuring Brandon Trager & Brian Trainor

While much of the country’s been in quarantine for more than a month, we have finally dragged our feet to make it to draft week. This NFL Draft will be unlike any other before, as the entire process will be fully virtual.

Just think about New York Giants General Manager Dave Gettleman on his 2007 Acer laptop and 100 unorganized Post-it Notes trying to make sure he gets the team’s pick to the league in time. Schefter already said there’s been technical difficulties with the official practice draft, so we could be in for some fun.

Both of my fellow draft experts Brandon “Peter Schrager” Trager and Brian “Mr. F-45” Trainor have taken a break from freaking out about their upcoming weddings to give you the best mock around.

gif.gif

Dive into the full first round to see whose name your squad will be calling below, or your money back guaranteed.

1. Cincinnati Bengals

Trainor: Joe Burrow – QB, LSU

Not much to say other than the best single season in College football history. Burrow showed incredible accuracy, poise, anticipation and escapability. Other than that, he is just a freakin competitor.

Trager: Joe Burrow – QB, LSU

I don’t remember another QB in my lifetime making this type of turn around. Every single game Joe Burrow played, he was unstoppable. He turned a consistently offensively challenged LSU team into an offense that defenses had no answer for. That was by far the most consistent QB play I’ve ever seen in college. As long as the Bengals don’t royally screw this up (and they may), I believe there’s no doubt Burrow will be a perennial pro bowler for years to come.

LTS: Joe Burrow – QB, LSU

2. Washington Redskins

Trainor: Chase Young – Edge, Ohio State

Do I think he’s as good as the Bosa brothers? No. But he is by far the best edge rusher in this draft. Can’t wait for the Giants to attempt to block this man for 10 years.

Trager: Chase Young – Edge, Ohio State

When I think Chase Young, I think about a high motor player that does not stop working. He plays the run, and as an elite pass rusher. Watching him play this year, he was all over the field from sideline to sideline. Young seems like a can’t miss prospect, someone that new head coach Ron Rivera is surely salivating over.

LTS: Chase Young – Edge, Ohio State

3. Detroit Lions

Trainor: Jeffrey Okudah – CB, Ohio State

Detroit tries to trade back from this pick, but Miami and Chargers feel comfortable staying put. I personally think they should draft Derrick Brown, but Bob Quinn and Patricia are drafting for their jobs and will take the safe approach.

Trager: Jeffrey Okudah – CB, Ohio State

I’d like to take this moment to thank the Lions for knowing they’ll get Okudah, so therefore trading their Pro Bowl corner to The Philadelphia Eagles. Darius Slay will be a great fit. Oh back to the Lions, Okudah is a dominant corner who should make an impact right away…except for the fact that it’s the Lions. #ForeverMediocre

LTS: Jeffrey Okudah – CB, Ohio State

4. New York Giants

Trainor: Jedrick Wills – OT, Alabama

THE BEST OT IN THE DRAFT. BY FAR. I’ve watched all of the OTs film from this past year and Wills has the best feet and hands I have ever seen from a OT prospect. Needs to improve on blocking in space, but I think this is the smarter pick for the Giants. Need to protect Jones and Saquon.

Trager: Tristan Wirfs – OT, Iowa

F the Giants, oh whoops, sorry this is supposed to be unbiased. I think Dave Gettleman is an absolute joke, and that opinion isn’t because I hate the Giants, he just is. (S/O Big Dave as a former PE teacher turned NFL GM though, smh). Back to the pick, I killed Dave last year not for the Jones pick, but where he got him. However, I’ll give him this, Jones looked like a legit NFL starter.

Now, with that being said, looking back to 2018 the G Men still should have Sam Darnold not Saquon Barkley. They will be in the same crap predicament all of these teams are who took RB’s in the 1st round. The 2nd contract Barkley’s gets will kill them, and the Giants will still be average. Ok for real, back to the pick. Many “experts” have the Giants picking Simmons. And Simmons is nasty. But DAVE doesn’t care what y’all think! Gettleman invested in Jones, so it’s only right that he gets a big tough guy to protect him. Wirfs is just that. Plug and play to protect Jones. You’re still a joke, Dave. 

LTS: Isaiah Simmons – LB, Clemson

5. Miami Dolphins

Trainor: Justin Herbert – QB, Oregon

Dolphins play it safe and draft their franchise QB. They will regret not drafting Tua for years and years. Simple as that.

Trager: Tua Tagovailoa – QB, Alabama

January 8th, 2018, Tua Tagovaiola was born. No, seriously. I will never forget watching Alabama and Clemson in that National Championship. EVERYONE was thinking, “if only Alabama had a QB that could throw the football (sorry Jalen Hurts).” Then came Tua to the rescue, leading a perfect comeback.To cap it off, who can forget the Dilfer dime dropped from the sky to Smith for the W. Since then, when Tua is on the field, he has been nothing short of a stud.

Let me make this very clear: as Wayne Gretzky once said, “you miss 100% of shots you don’t take.” As Dot once said, “Shooters shoot.” I can go on and on. Here’s the point: you don’t pass on Tua. I don’t care how many injury concerns there are. We have seen how fast a franchise QB can turn around a franchise in a year. Tua won’t flop because of talent, it’ll be because of injury. And I can live with that. This dude is a stud, checks every single box you want in a QB. You can’t pass this man up. If I’m any team with a question at QB, I’m swinging for the fences. The season started with the Dolphins #TankingForTua, they better hope they get him.

LTS: Tua Tagovailoa – QB, Alabama

6. Los Angeles Chargers

Trainor: Tua Tagovailoa – QB, Alabama

Chargers will get a steal here with Tua. He will change their culture around. He will rest behind Tyrod for a year and then take over for years to come. Watch out for the Chargers in the next couple of years.

Trager: Justin Herbert – QB, Oregon

I can’t take credit for what I’m about to say, nor do I remember who I should give the credit to, but I was listening to the radio the other day and someone stated the perfect comparison for what Justin Herbert will be: Josh Allen. Checks off all the boxes you want in a QB: tall, strong arm, mobile. He’ll probably be good enough to be a starter. But is that good enough? As the person said on the radio, BESIDES the Bills, how many teams would be dying to make Allen their QB right now. Is this what you want for your franchise QB? I don’t want to kill Herbert, he may be a stud. But every time I saw him play, nothing popped. He never looked like the top 5 QB he was always talked about being. We’ll see. For now, enjoy Josh Allen – what Justin Herbert will be.

Let’s take a look back at the 2020 NFL playoffs. 1 minute to go, Bills going for the tie or win. Let me present you, Josh Allen:

LTS: Justin Herbert – QB, Oregon

7. Carolina Panthers

Trainor: Isaiah Simmons – LB, Clemson

Athletic freak of nature. That is all you have to say about Simmons. He will make a defense instantly better, but I do think he is a little overrated. He doesn’t make plays that you would like your linebackers to make and he doesn’t make plays that you would like a safety to make. He is very fast north and south, but doesn’t have that quick twitch burst.

Isaiah Simmons 2020 NFL Draft Profile

Trager: Isaiah Simmons – LB, Clemson

Isaiah Simmons is a beast. Period. End of story. He has insane versatility for a defensive coordinator. It’s ironic that I have Simmons falling here, because the last player I remember people talking about with this versatility is Shaq Thompson (Panthers 25th pick in 2015 draft). Thompson wasn’t as highly regarded as Simmons, but has turned out real well for them. With the departure of Luke Kuechly, insert Simmons who can play any LB position on the field, as well as rush the passer. It’s hard to replace Kuechly, but Simmons should be a plug and play star for the Panthers. Matt Rhule, let’s see what you got.

LTS: Derrick Brown – DT, Auburn

8. Arizona Cardinals

Trainor: Tristan Wirfs – OT, Iowa

Arizona could go many different ways here. They could trade back or take DT Derrick Brown, but I think they take an OT that fits them perfectly in Wirfs. He is athletic enough to get out on the edge to help Kingsbury’s offensive system.

Trager: Mekhi Becton – OT, Louisville 

When you think Mekhi Becton, you think about a freakishly athletic BIG MAN. 6’7 370 and he ran a 5.1 40! Well let’s take a look at the Arizona Cardinals 1st pick in the draft from last year… freakishly Athletic QB! Let’s team up this year’s most athletic lineman with a QB that needs protection to throw the football to the likes of..DeAndre Hopkins. I expect the Cardinals to protect their franchise QB as they look to take a big step next season.

LTS: Jedrick Wills – OT, Alabama

9. Jacksonville Jaguars

Trainor: *Buccaneers Trade With Jaguars* – Andrew Thomas – OT, Georgia

Tampa Trades up and protects TOM! The most NFL ready LT to keep Tom off his ass. Bucs are in a win now type of mindset and they will do whatever it takes.

Trager: Jerry Jeudy – WR, Alabama

MINSHEWMANIA. All jokes aside, I was impressed with Gardner Minshew. I don’t think his ceiling is higher than an average starting QB, but hey, they found a steal for a 6th round draft pick nobody had heard of. I still think the Jags could go QB if they’re sitting here, or they may even trade up. I’m sure if they don’t draft one, they’ll be in the veteran QB market to push Minshew. Regardless, let’s go with Jerry Jeudy here, who I believe is one of the safer players in this draft. Jeudy’s route running is incredible, and he has good speed as well. He has put up extremely consistent, productive #’s at Alabama, and his game transfers to make an immediate impact in the NFL. Give Minshew a stud WR, and maybe he’ll turn out like another 6th round QB who just changed teams?

LTS: Tristan Wirfs – OT, Iowa

10. Cleveland Browns

Trainor: *Broncos Trade With Browns* – CeeDee Lamb – WR, Oklahoma

Trager: Jedrick Wills – OT, Alabama

Jedrick Wills Jr. is most likely the most “NFL ready” lineman in this draft. Shocker, he’s an Alabama product. The Browns have a ton of offensive weapons, and a solid defense. They need to protect the QB they’ve invested a lot in. Wills will step in, with the hopes of replacing the likes of Joe Thomas at the tackle position. If the Browns can put what’s on paper, onto the field, they have the “chance” to be “real good”.

LTS: Mekhi Becton – OT, Louisville

11. New York Jets 

Trainor: Mekhi Becton – OT, Louisville

Trager: CeeDee Lamb – WR, Oklahoma

I said I was only going to do the first 10 write ups, but this is the Lord’s team, LordTreeSap. The Jets could easily go OL here (Jedrick Wills Jr.), but c’mon give Darnold a weapon, and let the kid fly. I’m a huge Sam Darnold believer, and I think we’ll look back thinking the Jets got not only the steal of the 2018 draft, but the steal of NY (sorry again, Giants).

CeeDee Lamb is an absolute stud. He is a complete receiver who can literally do it all. You can’t judge a QB until you put SOMETHING around him. Gase will continue to hold the Jets back (GET RID OF THE MAN), but Lamb should help mask some of Gase’s deficiencies. I think Sap will like this one (He does). 

Best Ceedee Lamb GIFs | Gfycat

LTS: Andrew Thomas – OT, Georgia

I’ll hop in here to write a few things about our beloved Jets. Joe Douglas showed he’s going to be a prudent spender when it comes to free agents, which resulted in a bargain shopping off-season — something fans weren’t used to in recent years with the frivolous Mike Maccagnan.

When Robby Anderson bolted for Carolina, he left a huge hole at wide receiver, but I still think Douglas opts for any of the top four tackles to bolster a revamped o-line. Between his lineman background and making a promise to the Darnold family that he would do everything in his power to protect Sam, Thomas has to be the pick here, while a deep WR class takes a backseat until the second round.

21. Philadelphia Eagles 

Trainor: Justin Jefferson – WR, LSU

Trager: Justin Jefferson – WR, LSU

I know what you’ve all been waiting for. My take on the Eagles 21st pick in the draft. It’s no secret, everyone has the Eagles going receiver here. And they should. We need to give Carson weapons. If ANY OF YOU doubted the legend Carson Wentz, just look back to what he did at the end of last season. How many QB’s could have taken those Eagles offensive weapons to the playoffs? If Carson doesn’t get concussed in the first quarter, the Eagles win that game. Ok rant over.

As bad as I want a receiver, we desperately need help at LB which we’ve needed for the past few seasons. Our DLine is beast as always, and we have improved secondary depth (despite the massive loss of Malcom Jenkins). Therefore, I would not be upset at all if Kenneth Murray was here and we scooped him up. He’s going to be a stud.

Let’s go with Justin Jefferson who has had 2 very productive seasons in a row, including an unbelievable 2019 in which he had 111 catches for 1,540 yards and 18 TD’s. He can play in the slot, as well as on the outside. He has good hands, speed, and size. No brainer here. A security blanket who will make an immediate impact for Carson right away.

Brian Trainor’s Official 2019 NFL Mock Draft

*** Guest Appearance from THE Brian Trainor***

LordTreeSap: Brian Trainor was the NFL Draft guru when we were coming up as kids. I’m happy to see he’s taken some time off from F-45 and rededicated himself to the game as Mel Kiper’s disciple once again.

After sending countless mocks and telling me about how he’s watched every pass that future Giants quarterback Daniel Jones has ever thrown, I figured we’d raise the stakes and let the public in on Trainor’s football genius.

Prayers Answered: New York Jets Finally Land Their Savior by Selecting Sam Darnold

Last night, something finally went right for our beloved New York Jets franchise. It’s been 50 years since their lone Super Bowl win and this organization has been starved for a franchise quarterback since the days of Joe Namath.

Coming into the draft, I figured the idea of having the chance to draft Darnold at three was a pipedream, but that somehow became a reality. The football gods cast a spell on the Browns who selected Baker Mayfield No. 1 overall and the Giants continued their win-now approach with Penn State RB Saquon Barkley.

That all set the table for the Jets to end the quarterback drought and select a QB in 20-year-old Sam Darnold for the first time since Mark Sanchez also out of USC in 2009. The euphoric moment allowed fans to dream about one day hoisting that elusive Lombardi Trophy.

I want to give GM Mike Maccagnang some credit here as well. He had a plan and executed it perfectly once Kirk Cousins signed with the Vikings. Where are all of the people that were critical of the Jets giving up three 2nd rounders to move up from 6 to 3 and snag the consensus No. 1 QB?

Celebrate the moment my fellow NYJ fans. This could finally be the move that alters the franchise forever. The chance to flip the script on Giants fans and make this our town as they live in the regret of passing on a potential 15-year starter.

You can begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel for the Patriots empire in addition to murky futures with Buffalo and Miami, making this possibly the night that truly shifted the narrative of the Jets organization.

There are definitely high expectations and much work is to be done but Darnold actually walks into a great situation to learn and soak in as much as he can in year 1. Jeremy Bates is a bright offensive mind that I hope is around for years to come. A competitive quarterback room with Teddy Bridgewater and Josh McCown will also benefit the USC product. The 38-year-old McCown is a perfect mentor figure to help Darnold progress in the early stages of his career. He even had some fun at his own expense, posting a text message with his daughter who pointed out the fact she’s only a year younger than Sam.

If you’re like me, you’re drowning in Sam Darnold highlights like it’s the newest drug on the planet. The future is bright my friends. No more quarterback jokes from other fans. Our time is coming. I selfishly want the rest of my 20’s to be a fun time for Jets fanatics.

The journey begins. 4/26/2018.
