The Jaguars add talent to their secondary at 25.

No. 20 – The Chicago Bears select Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota.

The top quarterbacks are gone. After signing Andy Dalton to a one-year contract the Bears go after another offensive weapon.

No. 21 – The Indianapolis Colts select Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas.

The Colts value a strong offensive line and they get an offensive tackle to protect their new quarterback, Carson Wentz.

No. 22 – Tennessee selects Gregory Rousseau, DE, Alabama.

Who would have thought the first edge rusher to come off the board would be all the way down at pick 22? The Tennessee Titans aren’t complaining.

No. 23 – The Jets select Asante Samuel, CB, FSU.

The New York Jets were busy in free agency and signed a number of players to fill needs. Getting one of the top cornerbacks at 23 is very good value.

No. 24 – Pittsburgh selects: Najee Harris, RB, Alabama.

The Pittsburgh Steelers get the running back they need to balance their offense. Harris is a very good pick.

No. 25 – The Jacksonville Jaguars select Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU.

Jacksonville was active early in free agency and addressed their most pressing needs by signing several veterans. They need a pass-catching tight end but this spot is probably a little high and they have two picks early in the second round. They should get a quality one on Day 2. The Jaguars fill another need with this pick by landing the top safety in this year’s draft.

No. 26 – The Cleveland Browns select Kwity Paye, DE, Michigan.

The Browns need help at cornerback also, but defensive end makes sense here, and Kwity Paye is a good one.

No. 27 – The Baltimore Ravens select Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue.

The Baltimore Ravens add another weapon to their potent offense.

No. 28 – The New Orleans Saints select Azeez Ojulari, LB, Georgia.

The New Orleans Saints have a bigger need at cornerback, but with the run on the position earlier in this round, they’ll look to round two to fill that need. Adding Azeez Ojulari at linebacker is the smart move here.

No. 29 – The Green Bay Packers select Zaven Collins, LB, Tulsa.

The Green Bay Packers went heavy defense in last year’s draft. Aaron Rodgers needs more offensive weapons, but he’ll have to wait until later. The Packers bolster their defense.

No. 30 – The Buffalo Bills select Alijah Vera-Tucker, OL, USC.

The Buffalo Bills have a couple of positions on both sides of the ball they need to address, and getting an offensive lineman here to protect their franchise quarterback is a good value at 30.

No. 31 – Baltimore selects Joseph Ossai, DE, Texas.

The Ravens figure they need someone to infuse some talent in their defense.

No. 32 – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers select: Christian Barmore, DT, Alabama.

The Buccaneers return all twenty-two starters from their Super Bowl-winning team, so they have the luxury of selecting whoever they want and get the top defensive tackle in this year’s draft.

That concludes the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
