2021 NFL Mock Draft: Picks 77-80
77. Los Angeles Chargers: WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, USC. The Chargers have Keenan Allen and Mike Williams at receiver, but they need something more, especially considering that Williams is oft-injured.
St. Brown had seven touchdowns in six USC games last year. He could emerge as the next quality USC starting receiver at the next level and would at the very least add another weapon for Justin Herbert to target.
78. Minnesota Vikings: DT Jay Tufele, USC. Back-to-back USC players come off the board. Tufele didn’t play last year but he is a 6-foot-3, 305-pound tackle that had at least three sacks in each of his previous two campaigns.
Like most of the defensive linemen in this mock, he could go earlier than this. Tufele just slipped because the defensive line isn’t one of the strengths of this draft.
79. Las Vegas Raiders: DL Dayo Odeyingbo, Vanderbilt. Odeyingbo had more sacks last year (five) than he had in the previous three years combined (three). He was always a good, long run defender at 6-foot-6, but last year, he showcased some upside as a pass rusher as well.
The Raiders need all the help they can get on defense, so Odeyingbo is a solid pickup here.
80. Las Vegas Raiders: S Jevon Holland, Oregon. Speaking of defensive help, how about Jevon Holland? He could emerge as the best safety in this class yet he lasted until the middle of the third round in this mock.
Holland was a big-time playmaker at Oregon and had nine interceptions in his first two seasons combined. He didn’t play last year but he should have a chance to re-emerge as a terrific safety at the next level. The Raiders need secondary help next to Johnathan Abram, and Holland is too good to pass on at this juncture.
