Seven-round 2021 NFL mock draft: Broncos move up to take Justin Fields as fifth QB in top 10

Constructing a seven-round mock draft takes days and collective breath is held that a big trade does not happen to shake things up. As luck, or lack thereof would have it, the Panthers — a team widely expected to take a quarterback in the 2021 NFL Draft — made a splash move early this week to acquire quarterback Sam Darnold as I was working on the fourth round. I jokingly tweeted that fans should expect a big trade to go down any time and 40 minutes later…

It did not require too much of a shift and things were back on the straight and narrow. The rest went off without a hitch and I am sure you all are eager to see the finished product. Without further ado, let’s kick this off!
