The 25 best players still available in the 2021 NFL Draft

Day 1 of the NFL draft is in the books, but there’s still plenty of solid talent heading into the second day. Here’s a look at the top 25 remaining players entering Friday.

 

1 of 25

1. Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, ILB, Notre Dame

Owusu-Koramoah has a chance to start at the next level immediately and would be a fine early second-rounder. He had 62 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 12 games last season.

2. Elijah Moore, WR, Ole Miss

A lack of size is likely what’s pushed Moore to the second round. Moore lacks size at 5-foot-9, but he ran a 4.34 second 40 time and had 86 catches, 1,193 yards, and eight touchdowns in only eight games last year. He’d be a good fit at the start of the second round for either Jacksonville or the Jets.

3. Javonte Williams, RB, North Carolina

Likely the next running back taken, Williams is a power runner with excellent pass-catching ability. He’s an obvious fit for the Jets, Falcons, or Dolphins early in the second round.

Teams haven’t plugged the middle in the first round, but Barmore would be a nice find in the early second. He had eight sacks last season.

Jenkins could step in immediately as a starting right tackle. There are several teams early in the second round who could use his services.

A long injury history has likely pushed Dickerson down draft boards, but he has the potential to be an elite center or guard if he can stay healthy. He’s currently coming off a major knee injury.

Eichenberg has the potential to help at right tackle in 2021, with several teams picking early in the second round in the market for that help. He comes from a Notre Dame program that has produced several excellent linemen recently.

Edge rushers with big upside aren’t plentiful in this year’s draft, but Ojulari is one remaining. Ojulari is a quick edge pass rusher who had a terrific 2020, recording 9.5 sacks in 10 games.

Radunz hasn’t faced the best competition, but he performed well during Senior Bowl week and could help at either guard or tackle. Several teams early in the second round could call his name.

11. Levi Onwuzurike, DL, Washington

Jennifer Buchanan / USA Today Sports Images

Interior defensive linemen weren’t popular on Day 1, but there’s potential available in the second round. Onwuzurike opted out of the 2020 season, but he’s a top interior prospect who impressed at the Senior Bowl.

 

12 of 25

12. Carlos Basham, DL, Wake Forest

Carlos Basham, DL, Wake Forest

Butch Dill / USA Today Sports Images

Basham had an up and down college career, but he’s a potential interior defensive lineman with pass-rushing skills. He had 19.5 sacks in four seasons for the Demon Deacons.

 

13 of 25

13. Asante Samuel Jr., CB, Florida State

Cornerback help remains plentiful on Day 2. The younger Samuel had a great career at Florida State, peaking last year with three picks in eight games.

14. Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue

Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue

Nikos Frazier / USA Today Sports Images

What Moore doesn’t have in size at 5-foot-7, he makes up for with elite speed and past production. He shows excellent potential in the slot for a team like the Chiefs late in the second round.

 

15 of 25

15. Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia

Campbell would be the second Georgia corner to be drafted behind former teammate Eric Stokes. He’s not as gifted athletically but has more size and ran a sub-4.4 40 in his Pro Day.

16. Pat Freiermuth, TE, Penn State

A possible plug-and-play tackle on Day 2, Cosmi is experienced at left tackle but could move to the right side in his rookie season.

A more sizable wideout than the wide receivers previously mentioned, Marshall had 10 touchdowns in only seven games last season. He’s a fit as an outside receiver.

24. Jackson Carman, OT, Clemson

Jackson Carman, OT, Clemson

Carman could step in immediately as a right tackle in the NFL, providing potential value in the middle of Day 2.
