With the season finally over, order for the 2021 NFL Draft is now in place.

2021 NFL Simulation Project
No surprise at the top of this simulation project, because Sports News’ Vinnie Iyer Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence heads for Jacksonville. New Jaguars Urban Meyer trainer has left the door open for a non-Lawrence selection, but it would be shocking if the Jags passed on such a talented prospect.
Here are Iyer’s top 10 picks:
1. Jaguars – Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson
2. Jets – Zach Wilson, QB, BYU
3. Dolphins – Ja’Marr Chase, WR, LSU
4. Falcons – Justin Fields, QB, State of Ohio
5. Bengals – Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon
6. Eagles – DeVonta Smith, WR, Alabama
7. Lions – Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama
8. Panthers – Trey Lance, QB, State of North Dakota
