The NFL offseason brings some very “hot takes” at times, but this may be over the top. Colin Cowherd and Daniel Jeremiah released their joint mock draft for the 2021 NFL Draft, and it was…interesting to say the least.
Of course, NFL mock drafts are used by massive media outlets for clicks sometimes but Daniel Jeremiah is a very well-respected NFL Draft mind, and a former scout. His mock drafts usually hold merit, and of course we know Colin Cowherd is built for entertainment across his various media platforms. When it comes to their latest mock draft though, it has garnered some buzz of the negative variety.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at possibly the worst mock draft ever.
Daniel Jeremiah Mock Draft: Penei Sewell at 11?
Daniel Jeremiah is a well-respected NFL Draft mind, yes. But in his latest collaboration mock draft with Colin Cowherd, somehow Oregon offensive lineman Penei Sewell fell to #11 as the New York Giants selected him. As you can see below, that is only one of many “hot takes” when it comes to selections in this latest mock draft.

Is this impossible? Well, nothing is impossible but it seems very unlikely. Sewell has been dubbed by many as one of the best offensive line prospects in recent memory and has gone in the top 5 in nearly every single other mock draft. There was talks if he had come out last year that he would have been a top 5 pick then too. All the sudden, he is passed on for Rashawn Slater to the Bengals, the Falcons take a linebacker over him, and the Broncos and Cowboys both draft cornerbacks over Sewell.
Colin Cowherd Mock Draft: Jets take Kyle Pitts
Kyle Pitts has become one of the fastest risers in the NFL Draft, but number two overall to the Jets?! Come on, Cowherd and Jeremiah. The Jets need tight end help, yes…but at number two overall? ESPN’s Mel Kiper does have Pitts as the highest-graded tight end in his history, but does that make him a worthwhile pick at number two overall?
The Jets could use offensive line help, a quarterback if they are not sold on Sam Darnold, and much more. It is incredibly unlikely that Pitts is drafted second overall, but if you agree with Cowherd and Jeremiah, you can bet on Kyle Pitts being taken second overall at DraftKings Sportsbook at +7000 odds. With that said, Pitts has eight players in front of him with likelier odds to be taken second overall by the Jets.
Here are the odds for that betting market at DraftKings Sportsbook.
Second Overall Pick Odds
Here’s the list of players and their odds to be taken second overall, per DraftKings.
