With just five days to go until the best day of the year: the 2021 NFL Draft, it's time to present my complete, fully-realistic three-round Mock Draft and to cast an eye on the three most realistic picks for the vast majority of franchise teams (sorry, but trades do happen!).

The teams are listed in the order they picked in the Mock Draft (there were trades; so the order is not the same as it will be next Thursday). There's a lot to get through, so let's get started.
