New Miami Dolphins 7-round mock bolsters skill players with speed
Two elite wide receiver prospects are among the top three picks in ESPN NFL draft expert Mel Kiper Jr.'s first 2021 NFL mock draft. After the obvious selection of Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence to the Jacksonville Jaguars at No. overall, Kiper mocked Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith to the New York Jets at No.
The Heisman Trophy winning wide receiver amassed 1,856 receiving yards and scored 23 receiving touchdowns last season. He could attend Senior Bowl meetings and practices, but not participate in practices or the game because of his injury. In the national championship game, Smith had 12 catches for 215 yards and three touchdowns in the first half of the Crimson Tide’s 52-24 win over Ohio State.
