NFL Draft 2021: Final 32-pick Round 1 mock with trades

NFL Draft Pick No. 17: Christian Darrisaw, Offensive Tackle, Virginia Tech
The Las Vegas Raiders desperately need to build up their defense, but they also need a new tackle in the wake of trading Trent Brown. Virginia Tech’s Christian Darrisaw is a solid prospect who can fit at tackle.
Darrisaw had a great year for Virginia Tech at left tackle, and the everlasting need for blindside protectors have propelled him into consideration in the first round.
He’s is a quick and athletic lineman, but shares some undesirable traits of some other linemen in the class of not being the most physical blocker in the world. He has the tools to succeed, however, and looks like he could be a good pick if built up correctly.
