Early 2021 NFL Mock Draft Features Some Franchise-Changing Prospects

1. Washington Redskins: QB Trevor Lawrence (Clemson)

NFL Comparison: A stronger-armed Ben Roethlisberger

Based on current Super Bowl odds (as of mid-June), Washington has the worst shot at winning this year’s Super Bowl. Despite the fact Dwayne Haskins was drafted in the first round a short while ago, Washington simply cannot pass on taking Lawrence here. The Georgia native is blessed with every tool one would want in the prototype quarterback. He has the height (6-foot-6) to see over defenses. Lawrence has the arm strength to make every single throw on the field. Despite having a large frame, he’s a plus-athlete at the position. Lastly, he’s been battle tested since his freshman year against elite competition. All of these facts make him a no-brainer for the No. 1 pick. In terms of pure tools, he’s widely considered the most exciting quarterback prospect since Andrew Luck was taken in 2012.
