2021 NFL Mock Draft: Three-round mock drafts for every division in the NFL

In the lead-up to the 2021 NFL Draft, PFF will be utilizing its one-of-a-kind mock draft simulator to put together mock drafts for every division in the NFL.

AFC North

The Steelers won the AFC North in 2020 in precarious fashion, with their regular season ending in a disastrous run of poor form. The Browns and Ravens were right on their tail by the end of the campaign, while the Bengals will hope for a Joe Burrow explosion in 2021 to catch them. Read more…


AFC South

The Tennessee Titans stock up with positions of need after losing some key members in free agency, taking a cornerback and a wide receiver, among others. The Jacksonville Jaguars also load up with some big-time players, including a quarterback at No. 1 overall, though there are no prizes for guessing who that quarterback may be. The Indianapolis Colts, even without many picks, rebuild their offensive line to protect newly signed signal-caller Carson Wentz. The hapless Houston Texans are here, too, though only just. Read more…


AFC East

The Buffalo Bills are the kings of the AFC East for the first time in a long time, but draft season brings hope and renewal for the three teams looking up at them. Fans of the New York Jets, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots all feel like they are just a couple of draft picks away from claiming the division's top spot in 2021. Read more…


AFC West

The Kansas City Chiefs continue to be the class of the AFC West, while the rest of the division will be getting ready to knock them off their perch. And surprisingly, the Denver Broncos, Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers are not that far away, especially if any of them can put together a complete draft. Read more…

NFC North

Can the Detroit Lions make a Super Bowl run with new quarterback Jared Goff? Not unless they hit on all their draft picks. And wouldn’t you know it, they do just that in this three-round NFC North mock draft. The Green Bay Packers look to continue their dominance and fill their remaining holes. The Minnesota Vikings finally make a move to shore up their offensive line so that Kirk Cousins can sit pretty in the pocket, and the Chicago Bears select their quarterback of the future. Read more…


NFC South

The Falcons are looking to either rebuild or go on one last run with Matt Ryan at quarterback, while the Panthers are certainly in rebuild mode. The Saints are starting fresh after almost two decades of Drew Brees but still have a veteran cast of elite characters. The Buccaneers are Super Bowl champs and barely have any holes to fill. Because we are trying to create the perfect environment with our picks for each team, we refresh the mock draft simulator after each team has picked. You can try your hand at building the perfect roster through the 2021 NFL Draft, too. Read more…


NFC East 

While the Washington Football Team took home the NFC East crown a season ago, one could make the argument that they aren't the favorites to repeat, especially with a healthy Dak Prescott or actual development from Daniel Jones. Still, they are the team to beat, so we’ve put together a three-round mock draft for each team in the division with the goal to win the league as early as this next season. Read more…


NFC West

San Francisco does get a quarterback in this three-round NFC West mock draft, but it's not the quarterback many will expect. Elsewhere in the division, the Seattle Seahawks came out on top last season but have almost no draft capital to get younger and better for 2021, while the Los Angeles Rams go another season without a first-round pick but do have a few middle-round picks to work with. Meanwhile, the Arizona Cardinals continue to believe in their tremendous upside but are yet to put it all together on the field in the Kliff Kingsbury/Kyler Murray era. Read more…
