We have already taken a look at the first 32 picks in the First Round of the 2021 NFL Draft, but that does leave us with the vast majority of the draft left to go. There are still 227 picks remaining in the draft this year, starting with the second and third round picks later today.
And as happens every year, there is still plenty of talent that has fallen from outside the First Round for teams to snap up in the second and even third round.
In this article, we are going to focus on some of the very talented players that are still available to be selected in the NFL Draft this year and whereabouts they could land.
NFL Draft 2021 Second/Third Round Bargains?
Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah (Notre Dame) LB
Projected by many to go in the first round between the 10th + 20th picks, Owusu-Koramoah has fallen
into the second round but won’t last too long there. A very fast linebacker that can cover as well as pressure the quarterback, expect him to go early in the second round. The Jets look a good option at 34.
Christian Barmore (Alabama) DT
The porous Jaguars defensive line need help and Christian Barmore could be the lineman to help. This isn’t the best draft for defensive tackles, but Barmore is the best available and he would fit a pressing need for the Jags who went big on offense on day one.
Azeez Ojulari (Georgia) DT
But for question marks about his knee, Ojulari would likely have gone in the first round. He had an excellent year in Georgia in 2020 collecting 9.5 sacks and 4 forced fumbles.He would be a good fit to help the Falcons defensive line.
Teven Jenkins (Oklahoma State) OL
Whether Jenkins starts in the NFL as a guard or a tackle I’m not quite sure, much will depend on where he lands but he is an absolute monster in terms of power. The Bengals may have missed out on Penei Sewell in the first round, but I think they get the next best option in the second round here.
Trevon Moehrig (TCU) S
I was surprised that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn’t make the move for Moehrig when he was there at 32 in the first round. He was tipped as a late first round pick by many and I don’t think he will last too long into the second round. Carolina looks a possible fit, but would the Panthers spend their first two picks on the defensive backfield. The Eagles or Dolphins could be other viable options.
Elijah Moore (Ole Miss) WR
A very talented wide receiver who has explosive power as a slot receiver. He would be a perfect fit for New England who have seen Julian Edelman retire this off season and who have had a kacnk of finding top quality slot receivers like Wes Welker in the past. The Titans would love to pair Moore with his Ole Miss alumni AJ Brown, but he won’t fall that far in the second round.
