2021 NFL Draft: Prospects 41 – 50

41. Elijah Molden, CB, Washington

42. Kenneth Gainwell, RB, Memphis

43. Jabril Cox, LB, LSU

44. Tommy Tremble, TE, Notre Dame

45. Payton Turner, EDGE, Houston

46. Joe Tryon, EDGE, Washington

47. Jalen Mayfield, iOL, Michigan

48. Jayson Oweh, EDGE, Penn State

49. Richie Grant, S, UCF

50. Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State

Kenneth Gainwell is one of my favorite prospects in this class, so it’s no surprise to see him land as high as he does — just three spots after Etienne, mind you. He’s probably never going to be three-down back, but he’d be a perfect fit in an outside-zone run committee.

I’m also a big fan of Tommy Tremble and actually have him as my TE2 behind Kyle Pitts. He was overlooked at Notre Dame, but he has the tools to become a complete tight end at the next level as both a viable receiving threat and excellent blocker.

Joe Tryon and Jayson Oweh are two edge rushers receiving first-round buzz, but I tend to steer clear of athletic freak edge rushers who lack a pass-rush arsenal. Those guys bust a lot more than they hit.

Jabril Cox makes the list as my LB4 and, if he could improve his run defense, has a chance to become one of the more complete linebackers in the NFL. His coverage ability is already superb.

Dillon Radunz is another player who could sneak into first-round consideration. He played left tackle in college, but could be a better fit as a guard in the NFL.
