This NFL offseason has been crazier than normal as quarterbacks —whether at the top of the draft, through trades, or in free agency — have made this build up to the 2021 draft an interesting one. As next week approaches, quarterback still has a grapple on what even non-QB-needy teams have in front of them as so much scrambling could take place on draft night.
Teams have gone through most pro days now and are putting together draft boards, identifying their last flagged prospects and finalizing strategies. Deciding what medicals and off-field issues impact which players and how much that changes their board is an integral part of the decision-making process that goes far beyond talent and projection. In this full. two-round mock draft, the ramifications of the quarterback search and prospects with question marks bear out in an intriguing dance. Trades make things spicy.
