Week 11 of the 2020 NFL season is officially in the books, and for those teams picking in the top-10 next year, the season can’t end soon enough.

We are officially entering the NFL playoff race, as Week 11 of the 2020 slate came to a close with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers taking on the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night. Some teams are hoping the rest of the season goes by quickly so they can prepare for 2021, while plenty of others are looking to lock up their playoff spots.

With that said, here is our latest 2021 NFL Mock Draft.

Quarterback. New York Jets. Trevor Lawrence. 1. player. 30.

Death, taxes, and Trevor Lawrence being the No. 1 overall pick in a 2021 NFL Mock Draft. The star from Clemson is the consensus top player coming out this year, that is if he does decide to leave Death Valley and enter the 2021 NFL Draft.

If he does come out, it will be the New York Jets that will be waiting with open arms, even if Lawrence does not want to go there. The Jets have yet to win a game this season, are absolutely terrible on both sides of the ball, and Lawrence could help the franchise hit the reset button.

52. . Quarterback. Jacksonville Jaguars. Justin Fields. 2. player

The Jacksonville Jaguars are making a hard play for the No. 1 overall pick, after losing their ninth game this past Sunday against Pittsburgh. The Jaguars do not even know who their quarterback will be next week, and could be without star edge rusher Josh Allen for a while, so this franchise is all kinds of messed up.

However, they could solve that quarterback issue real quick next year, selecting Ohio State star Justin Fields with the No. 2 overall pick. Fields is a dynamic talent who can make plays happen with his arm, and his legs and the Jaguars need to finally find their long-term solution at the quarterback position.

56. . Offensive Tackle. Cincinnati Bengals. Penei Sewell. 3. player

The worst-case scenario happened to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, as star rookie quarterback Joe Burrow had his knee blown up by the Washington Football team. Burrow, the No. 1 overall pick in 2020, and a budding superstar tore his ACL and MCL while also suffering other structural damage to the knee.

Looking ahead, they have to do a better job protecting him, or else his career could be a short one. After drafting Jonah Williams a few years ago, the Bengals roll the dice on another first-round offensive tackle here at No. 3, bringing in the best offensive lineman in this draft in Penei Sewell from Oregon.
