NFL draft tracker 2021: Analysis on every pick in the second and third rounds


Liquid Web WW

The 2021 NFL draft, i.e. the league’s 86th annual “Player Selection Meeting,” rolls on with the second and third rounds Friday night. 

After an eventful Thursday in Cleveland, all 32 teams are scheduled to make picks on Day 2 – the Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks all sitting out Round 1 after previously making trades for established veterans. But they’ll enter the fray – though the Texans aren’t slotted until Round 3 – looking to strike gold at a time when the best teams tend fill out their rosters with less-acclaimed prospects.

Now, to the picks:

2021 NFL draft tracker: Second-round picks

33. Jacksonville Jaguars – CB Tyson Campbell, Georgia

Not a ton of production in terms of turning the ball over for the Bulldogs, but you can’t teach sub-4.4 speed or a willingness to tackle. Gives the Jags a nice nickel package with CJ Henderson and newly signed Shaquill Griffin.

34. New York Jets – WR Elijah Moore, Mississippi

The NYJ continue investing in assets to surround new QB Zach Wilson. After bolstering the O-line in Round 1 with OL Alijah Vera-Tucker, GM Joe Douglas gets the explosive receiver from Ole Miss. Moore can operate from the slot, take jet sweeps and turn a hitch into a score. He finished with 86 grabs for 1,193 yards and eight scores in eight games last year. This pick could cast doubt on the future of current slot receiver Jamison Crowder.
