2021 NFL Mock Draft: Denver Broncos select Alabama's Mac Jones at No. 9 overall, Trey Lance falls to the Patriots at No. 15 | NFL Draft | PFF : PFF's Steve Palazzolo mocks the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, sending Mac Jones to Denver and Trey Lance to New England.

Every NFL mock draft is different, but I tend to lean on the “what I would do” style. Rather than trying to predict what will happen on draft night, I’m playing GM for every team in the first round and making picks based on what I think is best for each NFL franchise. While trades are often a big part of the first round, no major moves came to mind as I worked through each pick. Even though it would make sense for certain teams to trade into the top 10 to select a franchise quarterback, I ultimately decided to stand pat with the current draft order.
