2021 NFL mock draft: Picks 25-28

25. Jacksonville Jaguars: EDGE Jayson Oweh, Penn State. This is another case of a team with two first-round picks swinging for the fences with a high-upside Penn State player. Oweh is an athletic freak and was disruptive for the Nittany Lions last year. The only issue is that he didn’t notch any sacks.

That said, Oweh still made a difference at Penn State and Urban Meyer did recruit him to play at Ohio State. Maybe with a second chance to grab him, Meyer could pull the trigger and find a long-term complement to Josh Allen on the Jaguars’ defensive line.

26. Cleveland Browns: LB Jamin Davis, Kentucky. With the other linebackers falling a bit, Davis slips as well. The Browns will stop his slide as they could use a linebacker to pair with Mack Wilson, Sione Takitaki, and Jacob Phillips.

Davis is a big-time athlete with a 6-foot-4 frame who racked up over 100 tackles last year for a bad Kentucky team. He should bolster Cleveland’s linebacker corps and give them a chance to improve the middle of their defense which proved to be one of their biggest weaknesses last year.

27. Baltimore Ravens: WR Kadarius Toney, Florida. The Ravens are looking for receiver help and need to add a bigger-bodied player to go with Sammy Watkins and Marquise Brown in their offense. While Terrace Marshall Jr. looked like a strong, prototypical fit for them, they may not ultimately target the LSU product. With Elijah Moore off the board, the next-best options are Kadarius Toney and Rashod Bateman.

I had Bateman here earlier in the day, but I’m switching it up to Toney. The speedster from Florida simply better fits the mold that the Ravens have been looking for in their receivers in recent years. Would adding a 6-foot-2 WR like Bateman help? Sure. But if the Ravens continue to target athleticism above all else at receiver, Toney feels like the better pick.

28. New Orleans Saints: CB Caleb Farley, Virginia Tech. Farley could have been a top-15 pick if not for a back injury that will require surgery. Now, his stock is in a bit of a free-fall as some NFL teams believe he made more surgeries to be able to play.

The Saints won’t mind at this juncture in the draft. They need a cornerback across from Marshon Lattimore and it could be argued that Farley is the best player on the board. If he can get and stay healthy, the Saints would have a solid, cost-controlled corner for five years at the cost of a late first-round pick. That would be a big win for the team.

Farley could go earlier than this with the Jets and Jaguars being teams to watch given their multiple first-round picks. Plus, the Jets took injured corner Bryce Hall in Round 5 last year, so they may be willing to make a similar move this year.
