NFL free agency had a different look this season. Due to the pandemic, the cap ceiling in the NFL fell for the first time since its implementation in 1994. Certain position groups saw their market-value fall and others saw a scarcity at their own position increase a certain player’s value. However, that didn’t stop teams from spending. The New England Patriots, for example, spent $137.5 million in guarantees during their first 24 hours of free agency. This spending, both from the Patriots and around the league, dramatically affect what could happen when writing the latest 2021 NFL mock draft.
