The New Orleans Saints are starting to get healthy heading into the playoffs, and their season will once again hinge on the play of quarterback Drew Brees. On defense, they still have issues, especially at linebacker, which is why Alabama’s Dylan Moses makes so much sense this late in round one.
The Buffalo Bills are going to give everyone fits this postseason, as they may be the hottest team in football right now. Quarterback Josh Allen looks like the real deal, and with pick No. 30 overall, they should bring in Notre Dame star left tackle Liam Eichenberg, who could come in and protect Allen for the next ten years.
The Green Bay Packers look like the team to beat in the NFC, and a date with Kansas City in the Super Bowl looks more and more likely every time they take the field. However, Patrick Mahomes may be able to exploit this Green Bay defense, and as we look ahead to the 2021 NFL Draft, a cornerback like Derion Kendrick from Clemson could be the play this late in round one.
Until someone knocks them off their perch, the Kansas City Chiefs are the favorite to win the Super Bowl, which means they will pick last in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft. With the pick, they bring in a talented young offensive tackle in Alijah Vera-Tucker, as they continue to stack protection for their No. 1 asset in Patrick Mahomes.
