2021 NFL Draft scouting reports for all skill position players of note

Our writers tackle some of the top college skill positions in run-up to the 2021 NFL Draft.

Top prop bets to target at the draft

April 29th is bearing down us, which means the 2021 NFL Draft is right around the corner. The number one pick appears to be locked in, as it would be a huge upset if Trevor Lawrence isn’t called by the Jacksonville Jaguars to kick things off. But after Lawrence, nothing is set in stone.

The expectation is that Brigham Young’s Zach Wilson will go to the New York Jets with the second pick of the draft. That isn’t quite the lock Lawrence is, but if things go as expected, the San Francisco 49ers, who traded up to the number three pick with the Dolphins, will be the first pick that will be a surprise.

Whoever the 49ers pick should help guide the hand of the Atlanta Falcons, who could go in many different directions with the number four pick. The Falcons could easily trade down with a more quarterback-needy team like the Washington Football Team, New England Patriots, Denver Broncos — or a wildcard team, as many could use a a quarterback despite having a starter already in place.

The draft will make for some intrigue at the very least and if your team is in rebuilding mode with a good draft slot, that intrigue will only elevate as the players come off the board. Those players are of course what this draft is all about. We’ve put together a slew of draft profiles on the best offensive skill players who will hear their name called in this year’s draft.

We’ve broken down each offensive skill position, looking at ability, possible destinations and fantasy football outlook. If you weren’t all in on college football last season, these will be helpful snapshots of each player as we go through the draft. Good luck to your favorite players and team. This should be a fun draft!
