Jaylen Waddle 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup

Here are some of the latest mock drafts in which Waddle has appeared:

EDSFootball - Hanson (3/5)

6. Philadelphia Eagles - Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama

Waddle is one of the most explosive athletes in the draft and is dynamic in the open field. With Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs off to the NFL in 2020, Waddle started the year with four 100-yard games before breaking his ankle. In fact, Waddle (557 receiving yards) outproduced DeVonta Smith (483) through the first four games of the season. It's certainly possible that the Eagles brass have Waddle ranked higher than Smith on their board.

ESPN - McShay (3/4)

11. New York Giants - Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama

The Giants have to give this offense more to work with. They were one of four teams to average fewer than five yards per play last season, and their 5.9 yards per pass attempt ranked No. 29. However, Waddle's 18.9 yards per catch over the past two seasons ranked eighth in the country. There isn't a more dangerous player with the ball in his hands in the draft class, thanks to excellent top-end speed, vision and elusiveness. And I hope Nick Saban has been glued to his TV because that's four straight Alabama players off the board, including two first-round receivers for the second time in two years.

Jordan Raanan on his fit with the Giants: Waddle can immediately slot into the Giants' three-receiver sets alongside Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton. He would essentially step into the role that the recently released Golden Tate played last season but provide a big-play ability that the offense was missing. Plus, Waddle would contribute immediately on special teams as a returner.
