The final day of the 2021 NFL Draft is here, and with it, teams will find much-needed depth and rotational players.

How will your favorite franchise build up its roster? Here's a Round 4 predictive mock addressing a number of team needs.

Jacksonville Jaguars (No. 106 overall): Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State

The Jaguars add a much-needed vertical presence in this 50/50 ball extraordinaire.

New York Jets (No. 107 overall): Michael Carter, RB, North Carolina

The team failed to address its need at RB in the first two days of the draft and would be more than happy to take the bowling ball in Michael Carter early in the fourth round.

Atlanta Falcons (No. 108 overall): Shakur Brown, CB, Michigan State

I love Richie Grant’s addition, but he isn’t a cornerback. Shakur Brown is a physical presence that will offer Atlanta increased depth on the perimeter.

Carolina Panthers (No. 109 overall): Jabril Cox, LB, LSU

Jabril Cox, a transfer from North Dakota State, has arguably the most amount of versatility among any linebacker in the class.

Cleveland Browns (No. 110 overall): Jay Tufele, DT, USC

The Cleveland Browns added Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah early in the second round and continue to boost the front seven here in Jay Tufele, an immensely strong interior defensive lineman with above-average movement skills. 

Cincinnati Bengals (No. 111 overall): Deonte Brown, IOL, Alabama

Jackson Carman will add much-needed protection for Joe Burrow. Deonte Brown fits the bill. The more time for Burrow, the more receptions for Ja’Marr Chase and company.

Detroit Lions (No. 112 overall): Shi Smith, WR, South Carolina

Tyrell Williams and Quintez Cephus won’t cut it. Shi Smith is electric with the ball in his hands and a must-add if the Detroit Lions envision Jared Goff as their future under center.

Cleveland Browns (No. 113 overall): Chris Rumph II, EDGE, Duke

Myles Garrett and Jadeveon Clowney will line up on either side of the line, but Chris Rumph II is an intriguing rotational prospect with surprising burst. 

Atlanta Falcons (No. 114 overall): Demetric Felton, RB, UCLA

Although Demetric Felton played both wide receiver and running back during his time at UCLA, I love the fit with him in Atlanta behind Mike Davis. He and Kyle Pitts offer Matt Ryan two fresh weapons on the offensive side of the ball.

Dallas Cowboys (No. 115 overall): James Hudson, OT, Cincinnati

Anyone can guess the approach general manager Jerry Jones has taken so far, but a prospect like James Hudson is too unique to pass on, even with his inexperience at the position.

New York Giants (No. 116 overall): Tay Gowen, CB, UCF

Even with Aaron Robinson’s selection early in the third round, Tay Gowen, a fellow UCF Knight, increases the New York Giants’ depth on the boundary with James Bradberry and Adoree’ Jackson slated to start.

Los Angeles Rams (No. 117 overall): Trey Smith, IOL, Tennessee

Matthew Stafford has ushered in a new era of football in Los Angeles and a slew of talent up front should join him.

Los Angeles Chargers (No. 118 overall): Jamar Johnson, S, Indiana

The hope is Derwin James returns to form, but Nasir Adderley has a huge question mark over his head entering the 2021 campaign. Jamar Johnson, a top-five safety in the class, could work both in sub-packages and rotationally on special teams from Week 1.

Minnesota Vikings (No. 119 overall): Cade Johnson, WR, North Dakota State

Chad Beebe is a similar type of wideout, but Cade Johnson’s week at the Senior Bowl can’t go overlooked. He was uncoverable in Mobile, Alabama.

New England Patriots (No. 120 overall): Shaun Wade, CB, Ohio State

Head coach Bill Belichick takes a risk here in Shaun Wade, a 2020 presumed first-round selection had he declared. He was abysmal in 2020 when asked to play out wide, but if he’s able to put it all together he could be the steal of the draft.

Los Angeles Rams (No. 121 overall): Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami

Brevin Jordan is an ideal Gerald Everett replacement and slides in nicely with Tyler Higbee to present unique matchups in 12 personnel. 

Cincinnati Bengals (No. 122 overall): Marco Wilson, CB, Florida

Marco Wilson—one of my favorite corner prospects in this class—has an impressive, polished skill set and would offer the versatility to work both inside and out.

Philadelphia Eagles (No. 123 overall): Hamsah Nasirildeen, S, Florida State

Jalen Mills is now a Patriot. With that, enter Hamsah Nasirildeen, a talented backend prospect with impressive length and ball skills.

Washington Football Team (No. 124 overall): Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama

Washington could double down at linebacker with Dylan Moses, an interchangeable piece within defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio’s unit. Moses could offer surprising value as a rotational piece in his rookie year before being thrust into a larger role down the road. 

Minnesota Vikings (No. 125 overall): Damar Hamlin, S, Pittsburgh

Damar Hamlin, a riser on many boards this spring, fills the vacancy left by Anthony Harris.

Tennessee Titans (No. 126 overall): Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, USC

He may go higher, but if he slips to No. 126 overall, the Titans should sprint to the podium.

Indianapolis Colts (No. 127 overall): Adrian Ealy, OT, Oklahoma

Adrian Ealy, an impressively built player, could serve as the next great Oklahoma tackle in the NFL.  

Pittsburgh Steelers (No. 128 overall): D’Ante Smith, OT, Eastern Carolina

The Pittsburgh Steelers added Kendrick Green to the interior, but with Alejandro Villanueva and Matt Feiler gone, D’Ante Smith fills a need at tackle.

Seattle Seahawks (No. 129 overall): Drew Dalman, C, Stanford

Drew Dalman was a spring riser and will compete with Ethan Pocic for snaps in camp. 

Jacksonville Jaguars (No. 130 overall): Tre Brown, CB, Oklahoma

Tre Brown, a standout at the Senior Bowl, is excellent in man coverage who has the tools to develop into an everyday nickel corner.

Baltimore Ravens (No. 131 overall): Richard LeCounte III, S, Georgia

Just like Ben Cleveland, Richard LeCounte III fits the Baltimore Ravens’ mold of tough, gritty prospects. 

Cleveland Browns (No. 132 overall): Daviyon Nixon, IDL, Iowa

The slip stops here for Daviyon Nixon. The 2020 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year is a menace within the interior. Anchoring Clowney and Garrett should have head coach Kevin Stefanski ready to run through a wall. 

New Orleans Saints (No. 133 overall): Sage Surratt, WR, Wake Forest

Michael Thomas is and always will be WR1 as long as he’s in the bayou, but outside of “Slant Boy,” the New Orleans Saints well runs dry at wideout.

Minnesota Vikings (No. 134 overall): Patrick Johnson, EDGE, Tulane

Patrick Johnson is a small-school prospect, but don’t let the program fool you; he can rush with the best of them. Johnson accumulated 24.5 sacks in three seasons.

Tennessee Titans (No. 135 overall): Kenny Yeboah, TE, Ole Miss

The Tennessee Titans land Jonnu Smith’s replacement as the athletic Kenny Yeboah slots in nicely as an in-line target for Ryan Tannehill.

Baltimore Ravens (No. 136 overall): Tyler Shelvin, IDL, LSU

Tyler Shelvin, built in the Calais Campbell mold, presents a massive interior frame for opposing lineman to try and stave off. 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (No. 137 overall): Trill Williams, S, Syracuse

The Buccaneers are in best-player-available (BPA) mode here in the fourth with all 22 starters returning in the fall. Trill Williams is a depth piece to work rotationally with Jordan Whitehead.

Dallas Cowboys (No. 138 overall): Rashad Weaver, EDGE, Pittsburgh

The best fit thus far for Dallas as Jones opts to add to his pass rush room with the former Pitt Panther.

Cincinnati Bengals (No. 139 overall): Cameron McGrone, LB, Michigan

Cameron McGrone has a long way to go in his progression as a defender, but he has the tools necessary to develop into a nice starting piece.

Pittsburgh Steelers (No. 140 overall): Ihmir Smith-Marsette, WR, Iowa

The more weapons the better for Ben Roethlisberger, who enters his 18th season under center for the Steelers. Ihmir Smith-Marsette was under-utilized during his time at Iowa, where his measurables and film project nicely into Pittsburgh's offense.

Los Angeles Rams (No. 141 overall): Brendan Jaimes, OT, Nebraska

Jalen Mayfield will develop into a nice player at tackle, but injuries are a commonality within the NFL, and depth never hurts.

Green Bay Packers (No. 142 overall): Justin Hilliard, LB, Ohio State

Justin Hilliard was used in multiple roles during his time at Ohio State. For a team that has failed to replace Blake Martinez and Kyler Fackrell, Hilliard brings a variety of tool to the middle of coordinator Joe Barry’s defense.

New York Jets (No. 143 overall): Hamilcar Rashed Jr., EDGE, Oregon State

Vinny Curry is aging, and I don’t envision him becoming anything more than a third-down primary pass rusher. Hamilcar Rashed Jr. is long, quick, and possesses the necessary bend and ankle flexion to turn the corner at the next level.

Kansas City Chiefs (No. 144 overall): Simi Fehoko, WR, Stanford

For a team already with an embarrassment of riches out wide, the addition of Simi Fehoko, a physically imposing wideout whose vertical prowess, could see him slide into the WR4 role for Patrick Mahomes.
