ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. released a new mock draft for the 2021 NFL Draft and as usual it was rife with bold predictions.
As with any mock draft from a top network analyst, NFL fans are sharply divided. Fans of teams who feel like they get screwed over in a trade are especially heated right now.

Trading up for Trey Lance is like trading up for Mitch Trubisky.

If the Jets take a TE at #4 the world would explode

But Ohio State fans are happy to see that Kiper is taking such a supportive stance of Fields.

Mel Kiper is sick of the Justin Fields hate. Mel’s glasses were steamed up for this segment. https://t.co/4wT1LVoQVY

Mel Kiper doesn’t exactly have a perfect track record when it comes to predicting drafts, or which players will succeed. But neither does anyone else for the most part.
There’s about two months until the 2021 NFL Draft, and that we haven’t even see free agency yet.
No doubt Kiper’s latest mock draft and just about everyone else’s will change dramatically after free agency starts in a few weeks. And there’s still time for big trades to be made.
How many picks that Mel Kiper made do you think will come true?
