New England Patriots draft picks 2021: Round-by-round selections

  New England Patriots draft picks 2021: Round-by-round selections Here is a 2021 NFL draft pick-by-pick breakdown for the New England Patriots.Round 1 (No. 15 overall) - Mac Jones, QB, Alabama: A national champion passer falls to the six-time Super Bowl champions. Well neither is currently a fair comparison, Jones is far closer to the Tom Brady mold than the Cam Newton mold for a team in need of a long-term successor post-TB12. Pats coach Bill Belichick surely did his homework on Jones, who played for his close friend Nick Saban in Tuscaloosa. Now it will be worth monitoring how New England designs an offense that's conducive to both Jones' abilities and Newton's.

With the New York Giants victory over the Cincinnati Bengals , and the Philadelphia Eagles ’ loss to the Seattle Seahawks , the Giants took over first place in the NFC East. And while it is truly remarkable — and not in the good way — that a 4-7 team would be hosting a playoff game if the season ended today, that’s where we are. Change in draft position is just in time for The Athletic’s Dane Brugler to release his first mock draft of the year , and it gives us some idea of the players the Giants could be looking at if they hold on to win the division. 19. New York Giants : DeVonta Smith , WR , Alabama.

A New York Giants fan was quite, quite livid bout the Philadelphia Eagles drafting Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

The Eagles picked 10th, with the Giants set to pick 11th. The Giants didn’t even end up picking 11th; they traded that pick to the Chicago Bears (who used the pick to select Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields). But that trade hadn’t been made at the time of the Eagles’ pick.

Clearly, this fan badly wanted the Giants to use the pick on Smith, and it made him even angrier that a division rival picked the Heisman Trophy winner before the Giants got the chance.

11 NFL teams that could trade up or down in 2021 draft

  11 NFL teams that could trade up or down in 2021 draft One of the most compelling aspects of the NFL draft is the wheeling and dealing, and several teams could look to move up or down.The annual "Player Selection Meeting" typically entails dozens of trades, some remnants from previous years but the bulk taking place over the course of the three-day, seven-round event. Some clubs are historically active, others have a reputation for eschewing such maneuvering. Yet, leading up to Day 1, nearly every general manager will profess a willingness to take all phone calls and explore the merits of moving up or down.

Why Giants safety's DeVonta Smith troll attempt is so dumb originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia. After years of one-sided domination by the Eagles , it seems the Giants and their fans are finally ready to make Eagles - Giants a legitimate rivalry again. The Eagles incensed the Big Blue fanbase and the team's players with their Week 17 throwaway performance last year, which kept the G-Men out of the playoffs. Jacoby got back to his feet fairly quickly every time, but Cutelaba took him down repeatedly throughout the round, landing punches or elbows after nearly every takedown.

After Smith was taken, the Giants traded back with the Chicago Bears so the Bears could take quarterback Justin Fields. The Eagles desperately needed a playmaking wide receiver. In the previous two drafts , the Eagles got burned at the position when they took Jalen Reagor in the first round in 2020 and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside in 2019 over Justin Jefferson and DK Metcalf, respectively. The Eagles ' pick of DeVonta Smith has Eagles fans amped, and apparently former Pro Bowl wide receivers as well.

So, the frustration is understandable… but not to the level that this guy displayed.

The fan kicked the wall from his chair a couple of times, before standing up and punching two holes in the wall. A woman at the house (presumably his significant other) was understandably quite unhappy.

Warning: NSFW language.

Sheesh, dude! It’s one draft pick, and the Giants have won two of the last 14 Super Bowls.

Additionally, the draftniks ended up very much liking the Giants’ draft anyway.

Patience (and perhaps some anger management).

The NFL draft started with Trevor Lawrence to the Jaguars at No. 1 and ended with Joe Tryon going to the Buccaneers at No. 32. Analysis on each pick.Outwardly, this draft will project a return to normalcy, the NFL set up with its massive stage contiguous to Cleveland's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Browns' FirstEnergy Stadium on the shores of Lake Erie. However the pre-draft process was hardly standard, what with COVID-19 forcing the league to cancel this year's scouting combine on the heels of a season when scouts and team executives had far more limited access to college programs and the prospects whom they evaluate.
