Ole Miss. 29. player. Pick Analysis. WR . 49. Scouting Report. Elijah Moore

The Packers passed on the chance to draft a wide receiver last year and they might do it again, but Elijah Moore would be unbelievable with Aaron Rodgers and Matt LaFleur.

Green Bay has a number of big receivers and Davante Adams is as good as it gets, however, the Packers don’t really have that quick slot guy and have never really replaced Randall Cobb.

Moore is just 5-foot-9, but in just eight games a year ago, he racked up 1,193 yards and eight touchdown receptions. Offensive line is another strong possibility, but in this mock draft at least, the Packers finally get Rodgers a first-round wide receiver.

EDGE . Penn State. Jayson Oweh. player. 16. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. 30

Sometimes at this point in the first round, you need to take a chance and that’s what the Bills do in our 2021 NFL Mock draft by taking Penn State defensive end Jayson Oweh.

Oweh is a raw prospect that didn’t start playing football until his junior year of high school. He had five sacks in 2019 and despite getting none in 2020, he had 38 tackles and 6.5 tackles for loss.

Buffalo could use another pass rusher and down the road, Oweh has pro-bowl potential.
