2021 NFL Draft: Prospects 61 – 70

61. Eric Stokes, CB, Georgia

62. Jevon Holland, S, Oregon

63. Alim McNeill, DL, NC State

64. Pat Freiermuth, TE, Penn State

65. Baron Browning, LB, Ohio State

66. Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue

67. Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, USC

68. Michael Carter, RB, North Carolina

69. Aaron Robinson, CB, UCF

70. Cameron McGrone, LB, Michigan

A pair of cornerbacks fall in this range in Eric Stokes and Aaron Robinson. Stokes possesses the size and speed to be a very good cornerback in the pros, but he must work on his technique and correct some transitional flaws.

As for Robinson, he’s probably a better fit as a slot cornerback in the NFL, but he’s a good athlete and he plays tough which should serve him well.

I’m probably a bit lower on Penn State tight end Pat Freiermuth than most, but I still think he has a relatively high floor and should contribute pretty early. His lack of standout traits pushes him down the board below Tommy Tremble for me.

Rondale Moore is an exciting prospect, but there are too many red flags for me to have him ranked higher. On top of the injuries, teams will have to get creative about where to use him and I’m not sold on him being anything more than a gadget player at this stage.

Michael Carter, much like Kenneth Gainwell, is another running back who boasts “standout in a committee” potential. His lack of size will limit him between the tackles, but he’s versatile, agile, and has good vision.
