Kyle Meinke’s final 2021 NFL mock draft: Detroit Lions invest in their future with Ohio State QB Justin Fields
With the seventh overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft, the Detroit Lions select ... yet another quarterback? After trading for Jared Goff? Really? This year’s NFL draft figures to be one of the wildest and most unpredictable in recent memory due to all the football that was lost last season, the top prospects who opted out entirely, the cancellation of the combine and the general lack of face-to-face time teams have had with players. Outside of Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson going 1-2, it’s hard to say what will unfold on Thursday night.
