My WAY TO EARLY 2021 draft projections. I dont make mock drafts.
Looking into future draft projections, Trevor Lawrence is almost the Jax Jaguar QB. Hamilcar Rashed(Cesar Chavez HS,Chandler HS/Oregon St) is now projecting as a late 1st round pick, on a few expert mock drafts. He played at Cesar Chavez til his junior year, then transfered to Chandler HS his senior year. He is considered more of a 2nd or 3rd rnd pick on most, but he is a rising prospect on many draft lists. CB Chase Lucas (Chandler HS/Arizona St) projects as a 5-7 round pick. WR Johnny Johnson (Chandler HS/Oregon) also projects as a 5-7 round pick. And former ASU kicker Brandon Ruiz(Williams Field HS), now at Mississippi St is projecting as a 7th round or high priority FA. There is a collection of senior centers this year too. Cade Cote(ASU),Kaden Lyles(Wisconsin),Josh McCauley(Arizona),Nate Eldridge(Oregon St). None of them project to be drafted at this point.

The other big news, Brock Purdy (Perry HS/Iowa St) is staying for his senior year 2021. This year he was viewed as the 7th best QB prospect after Trask and and another junior announced. Purdy elevated the Iowa State to a top 10 program and there best year since 2000(9-3). Iowa state won the Fiesta Bowl, over Tyle Shough's Oregon Ducks.And he was the Fiesta bowl MVP. Purdy has set or tied 25 Iowa St records so far. In another year he will own them all. He is also a Davey O'Brien QB watch list for top QB's.
Next year he still projects to be drafted in the first 3 rounds, but there are less QB's next year with super high projections. There could be 3 Arizona prep QB's in the draft next yer.

As for future drafts. QB's Spencer Rattler(Oklahoma) and Kedin Slovis(USC) both project as high draft picks in 2022 draft. Both will be juniors next year. Rattler has always had high projections, being an Oklahoma QB. But Slovis has went from USC rotation guy to a 2-3 rounder to a maybe high 1st. Some suggesting he is the best overall. He took the job from higher ceiling QB's and outshown them statiscally and in leadership skills since his debut as a freshman. A very noted point by a few experts. More mock draft have Slovis rising up the draft, more mocks having him top 10 now. Rattler is maintaining his position.

CB Kelee Ringo (Saguaro HS/Georgia) and RB Bijan Robinson(Salpointe HS/Texas) project as high picks for 2023 draft. QB Tyler Shough(Hamilton HS/Oregon) is starting to get mentioned as a 1st round pick for the 2023 draft also. I have seen his name come up in the 2022 draft also. Ringo hasn't played this year because of a shoulder injury. Next year is his chance to shine. Ringo was the #1 recruit in 2020 and has been a high projection since graduating high school.

Bijan Robinson has by far been the best premier freshman RB in the football nation. No one has stopped him yet, and he still has 2 years to draft eligibility. Robinson ran for 172 yards, 19.1 average, 3 TD's and 52 more yards receiving against Kansas State. Then against Colorado in the bowl game he ran for 183 yards, 1 td and 37 rec yards, 2 more td's. Assisting 2 RB's decision to transfer out of Texas so far.
As for Shough, he wasn't even the definite starter at Oregon until a week before the season started. He has suprised many and has been noticed by scouts. He is also a rising sophmore now. And Sophmore Jack plummer has come up a little in some discussions too. but not as a projected pick yet, but he is a rising prospect. His 3 games are below in the stats.

Also, with Grant Gunnell transferring out to Memphis. Rhett Rodriguez(junior) and Will Plummer(freshman) get a chance to be the Wildcat starter next year.
DL Brett Johnson (California) and DL Tyler Johnson(Arizona St) both have put up nice numbers as sophmores. WR Jake Smith and DL Ty Robinson(Nebraska) has also put up nice numbers and was very effective as freshman. Expect all of them to get more attention in the future.

As for 2024 and 2025, there is a lot of redshirt freshman from 2019 and 2020 not getting field time. A possibility of added year of eligibility based on playing time to schools not fielding teams because of covid-19 screwing up the 2020 season. Which adds another year to graduate and be eligilble immediately after transfer. Which can effect their draft status depending on where they transfer to. Idaho, NAU, New Mexico State, some non power 5 conferences schools did not field teams in 2020.
