NFL Mock Draft 2021: Here's what happens when we let Madden simulate the picks
What if we let the virtual GMs decide the outcome of the 2021 NFL Draft? Here's how our experiment went down.Experts will break down team needs, watch film of the top college prospects and predict (to the best of their ability) where players will get drafted. We're going to be doing none of that in this mock draft. Here, we're going to set everything up so that the virtual GMs and coaches in "Madden 21" will be making the picks for us.
Here is a 2021 NFL draft pick-by-pick breakdown for the Houston Texans:
Round 3 (No. 67 overall) - Davis Mills, QB, Stanford: Houston's first pick of this draft ... is a potential replacement for Deshaun Watson. Mills was highly recruited out of high school, but knee injuries limited him to 11 starts. He ran a sub-4.6 40 at his pro day and is the kind of compelling prospect you'd love to develop ... maybe behind Tyrod Taylor?.

The 2021 NFL Draft is rapidly approaching. This is your hub for all things draft-related, including TV & live stream info, this year's best prospects and more.But in '21, the NFL Draft will be hosted in Cleveland. There will be some events with limited capacity to ensure safety amid the ongoing pandemic, and some prospects will be invited to attend. Not all will go, including presumptive No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence, but again, this represents a bit of a return to normalcy for the league after a trying year.
Round 3 (89, from Browns through Panthers) - Nico Collins, WR, Michigan: A big target at 6-4, 215 pounds, Houston begins reloading its receiving corps after losing Will Fuller V in free agency. Collins averaged 19.7 yards per catch and had seven scores in 2019.
Cincinnati Bengals draft picks 2021: Round-by-round selections
Here is a 2021 NFL draft pick-by-pick breakdown for the Cincinnati Bengals.Round 1 (No. 5 overall) - Ja'Marr Chase, WR, LSU: Strong case to be made here for an offensive tackle in the aftermath of the ACL injury that prematurely ended 2020 No. 1 pick Joe Burrow's rookie season. But apparently a more compelling case to reunite Burrow with his main weapon from LSU's 2019 title team, when Chase established himself as the best wideout in college football.

Round 6 (203, from Washington through Raiders and Dolphins)
