2021 NFL Mock Draft: Picks 25-32
25. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jayson Oweh, EDGE, Penn State
26. Cleveland Browns: Joe Tryon, EDGE, Washington
27. Baltimore Ravens: Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State
28. Indianapolis Colts (TRADE with NO): Gregory Rousseau, EDGE, Miami
29. Green Bay Packers: Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota
30. Buffalo Bills: Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson
31. Baltimore Ravens: Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU
32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Christian Barmore, DL, Alabama
Jacksonville could go in a lot of directions with this pick, but they bolster their pass-rush by adding Penn State’s Jayson Oweh. The Browns make it back-to-back edge rushers drafting the athletic Joe Tryon who compares favorably to a player like Marcus Davenport coming out of college.
Dillon Radunz is a player who has been rapidly rising up draft boards, and the Ravens solidify his meteoric rise and make him a first-round pick. They don’t need to target Orlando Brown’s replacement with this pick, but it’s certainly a strong possibility.
The Colts trade down to 28 and select one of the draft’s most contentious prospects in Miami pass-rusher Gregory Rousseau. Indianapolis is betting on his upside and overlooking his poor testing numbers to hopefully land the steal of the draft.

Green Bay finally addresses their hole at wide receiver early selecting Rashod Bateman. There’s a lot of buzz around Elijah Moore right now, but Bateman fits what the Packers are looking for causing Moore to slide a little more than expected.
The Bills don’t have a ton of pressing needs, but they’ve constantly been linked to Clemson running back Travis Etienne throughout the entire draft process. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
Baltimore could have taken Trevon Moehrig at 27, but they opt to target him here and make the former TCU star the lone safety selected in Round 1.
And with the last pick of the first round, the defending champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Alabama’s Christian Barmore. Barmore can eventually help replace an aging Ndamukong Suh and combine with Vita Vea to create one of the better young interior duos in the league.
Best players still available: Zaven Collins (LB), Caleb Farley (CB), Elijah Moore (WR), Landon Dickerson (iOL), Kadarius Toney (WR), Liam Eichenberg (OT), Levi Onwuzurike (DL), Jamin Davis (LB), Samuel Cosmi (OT), Javonte Williams (RB)
