2021 NFL Draft Predictions and Results

The 2021 NFL Draft will be April 29 - May 1, 2021, and the Florida Gators might have up to 7 draft selections, with 9 of 14 draft eligibles being "invited" to the canceled NFL Combine.

TE Kyle Pitts

Fun fact: Ben Troupe is the highest-drafted tight end out of UF (2nd round of 2004 draft, 40th overall). The first tight end drafted out of UF was Jim Yarbrough (2nd round of 1969 draft, 47th overall). Pitts is projected by most experts to go in the top 15, possibly top 5.

Pitts is described as being a unicorn in terms over pure athletic talent, but in an NFL scheme his is valued more for his pass-catching and mismatch creation than his TE blocking. The more common projections in order from most realistic to least:
- Atlanta Falcons at #4 (CBS)
- Miami Dolphins at #6 (CBS, 247Sports)
- Carolina Panthers at #8 (ESPN)
- Dallas Cowboys at #10 (USA Today)
- New York Giants at #11 (USA Today)

I do not see how the NFL scouts will let Pitts go outside the top-6. Most analysts have Trevor Lawrence to Jacksonville Jaguars at #1, Zach Wilson to New York Jets, and Mac Jones or Trey Lance to San Francisco at #3. After that, the best players available are Kyle Pitts, Ja'Marr Chase, Penei Sewell, and Justin Fields. I cannot see any way Pitts is selected outside this group of 8.


WR Kadarius Toney

Toney is an interesting selection as a raw athlete on special teams and offense, and recently as a polished wide receiver. At 5'11", 193 pounds and with 9.25" hands he is considered undersized for a traditional wide receiver, but his movement, newfound ability to run clean routes with separation, and displayed ability to adapt, there are teams willing to take the former 2nd-team All American in the 1st round. The predictions:
- Baltimore Ravens at #27 (CBS)
- New Orleans Saints at #28 (CBS, 247Sports)
- Cincinnati Bengals at #38 (ESPN)
- Washington Football Team at #19 (USA Today)


QB Kyle Trask

For some reason the Heisman candidate is not getting the same respect as Mac Jones despite having a much better Pro Day. The predictions:
- New Orleans Saints at #28
- Seattle Seahawks at #56
- Minnesota Vikings at #90 (CBS, 247Sports)
- New England Patriots at #96


CB Marco Wilson

Marco is considered the #2 CB in terms of Relative Athletic Score (RAS) behind Jaycee Horn. I will throw a shoe at the TV if Marco Wilson does not get drafted before round 7:
- Philadelphia Eagles at #150 (CBS, 247Sports)

SI thinks he would be a good fit for Jacksonville (with CJ Henderson) or Arizona in later rounds. Dan Quinn of the Dallas Cowboys might be interested in using Wilson as an inside CB.

DT TJ Slaton

- Green Bay Packers at #136 (247Sports)

OT Stone Forsythe

- Las Vegas Raiders at #167 (CBS, 247Sports)
https://twitter.com/SI_AllGators/status/1380145904850673668?s=20

WR Trevon Grimes

Grimes probably would have been a solid round 1 or round 2 selection in 2022 if he had returned. His pro day showed enough for some teams to possibly take him in this draft, but at a lower pick.
- Las Vegas Raiders at #200 (CBS, 247Sports)

https://twitter.com/Rivals/status/1376035067332423681?ref_src=twsrc^tfw|twcamp^tweetembed|twterm^1376035067332423681|twgr^|twcon^s1_c10&ref_url=https://floridagators.com/news/2021/3/30/football-carters-corner-pro-day-blog.aspx

C Brett Heggie

- Houston Texans at #195 (CBS, 247Sports)
https://twitter.com/DraftDiamonds/status/1377271138355646474?s=20

K Evan McPherson

McPherson is rated as the #1 or #2 kicker in this draft (Miami's Jose Borregales). If he does not get drafted he would be a good UDFA.
- Jacksonville Jaguars at #249 (CBS, 247Sports)
https://twitter.com/985TheSportsHub/status/1370788757436297218?s=20

TE Kalif Jackson

Kalif completed his degree at UF in 2019 and finished the 2020 season at Grambling State. He participated in the Florida Pro Day, but is not expected to be drafted. Note that former Gators Martez Ivey and Adam Shuler also participated in Florida Pro Day despite not getting drafted in 2019 or 2020.

S Shawn Davis

The Gators stake their claim as DBU based on the streak of having a DB drafted in the NFL every year since 2016. Davis could be a late-round pick, but more likely he will not be able to continue that streak and will be an UDFA. His performance at the Senior Bowl seemed to impress the scouts. He is rated just outside the top 10 safeties in this draft.

I did see an article that the Saints were considering Trask in the first round. I think it would be smart since well Taysom Hill is going to be 31 next season and Infamous Jameis well....... moving on. Probably could get him in the second round. Payton is a good coach for Trask.

I do think Trask is trending towards that New Orleans Saints pick at #28, which is why I list it above. Maybe because I am too attached to Trask I make my official projection later in the post as New England Patriots with pick #96. Personally I think Trask would be the best fit if the Saints plan on continuing the offensive style used by Drew Brees. If they are evolving to a Taysom Hill offense, then the Saints are in for a wild ride with Famous Jameis as the backup.

Mac Jones to the Niners was/is a surprise because he was considered a mid-first-round pick then the 49ers traded up and considering him over Fields and Lance and don't get me started on Lance who is a QB from an FCS School who only played one game in 2020 and yet he's ahead of Trask.

Also, I wonder if Trask will be drafted sooner than 28th. Washington could be in the market for a QB at 19th, New England at 15 unless they trade up or Justin Fields falls to them. Probably would depend on if five quarterbacks are drafted by the first 12 picks which can be possible.

If the Niners take Mac Jones early in the 1st round, that is fine as long as a good team gets Trask later in the 1st. If Trask falls past 1st round with the Niners taking Jones in the 1st, then I would be surprised. I have heard the Patriots say they are interested in Trask, but I cannot tell which round they would take him so I took the safe route and projected him to the Patriots at #96 in the 3rd round if they take him. I would love to be wrong there.

The big questions for the Gators in the first round is will Trask be drafted in the first round, same with Toney. Also, will Pitts be the first non-QB drafted.

Pitts was the first non-QB drafted as the Falcons drafted him fourth overall. Good for him though he'll play twice a season against my Bucs (crap). Toney was drafted by the Giants at 20th mostly because none of the Bama boys weren't available and they traded down with the Bears. Still congrats to Toney. Trask wasn't drafted by the Saints at 28th (they went with Payton Turner from U of Houston, I didn't see him on the mock drafts, not in the first round). Probably understandable since you don't pay Taysom Hill 140 million in four years not to use him. Wanted the Bucs to draft him but they wouldn't do that to Brady. Trask waits another day.

The 2021 Gators fell one short of the school record for most NFL draft picks, which was nine in the 2007 and 2010 draft classes. This class had 14 eligible picks. The highlight of the class was Kyle Pitts being taken at #3, breaking the successive combo of quarterbacks. Speaking of combos, Kyle Trask started another successive run of quarterbacks late in round 2. The most disappointing surprise was watching Tre Grimes go undrafted. The most pleasant surprise was watching Shawn Davis get drafted in round 5. Congratulations to the Gators in the 2021 NFL draft!

The 2021 draft featured 65 athletes from the SEC, which breaks the record of 64 set in 2019, and 63 in 2020 and 2013! Alabama has averaged 10 picks over the last 5 drafts, which matches records set by USC from 1973-1977. This year the ACC had 51 players drafted, B1G had 44, Pac-12 had 28, and B12 had 22. S-E-C!
