NFL Notes: 2021 Draft, Damon Harrison, Domata Peko, Timmy Jernigan


2021 NFL Draft

  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer says if the season is canceled, the NFL could use the NHL’s model to determine the draft order by conducting a weighted lottery with teams receiving more balls if they performed poorly the past few seasons. 
  • If the college football season is canceled, Breer acknowledges it eliminates opportunities for players to dramatically improve their stock. But he adds a lot of elite prospects, like Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence, are already pretty secure at this stage. 
  • Virginia Tech CB Caleb Farley has decided not to play during the 2020 college football season and will instead focus on training for the 2021 NFL draft. Farley is a potential first-round pick, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Damon Harrison

  • According to NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero, free-agent DT Damon Harrison is still gathering info to decide if he will try to play in 2020. 
  • Harrison fits in a number of higher-risk categories and also has a newborn at home plus other family concerns. 

Domata Peko

  • NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero reports that several teams have expressed interest in free-agent DT Domata Peko and the veteran “wants to keep playing.”

Timmy Jernigan

  • KSTP’s Darren Wolfson notes free-agent DT Timmy Jernigan is “roarin’ to go” and ready to sign. Jernigan reached an agreement with the Texans this offseason before the deal later fell through.
