The 2021 NFL Draft is just over a week away and one prospect that continues to move around in mock drafts is Louisville's Tutu Atwell. This budding wide receiver racked up 2,303 receiving yards on 139 receptions and scored 20 touchdowns over the course of three seasons with the Cardinals.

A number of NFL teams will be heading into the draft looking to add depth at the WR spot. With that in mind, here are three of the most likely teams to draft Atwell.

1. Cincinnati Bengals

One of the Cincinnati Bengals' top priorities this offseason should be surrounding young quarterback Joe Burrow with as many weapons as they can. Adding Atwell to a receiving core that already includes starters Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins would give the team a dangerous trio. Atwell is a deep threat every time he steps on the field and has the separation skills to get open. Plus, the Bengals wouldn't have to spend a huge amount of daft capital to acquire him as he is projected to fall out of the first round.

2. Detroit Lions

Another team looking to add some playmakers at the WR position is the Detroit Lions. The Lions lost starters Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay to free agency this offseason, but could draft Atwell as a way to start building depth once again. Atwell has breakaway speed and could become a top option in the passing game for quarterback Jared Goff. His above-average footwork and ability to get into the end zone would help this offense improve next season. If he can overcome his small size, he could be a great addition here.

3. Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins made headlines this offseason by signing Will Fuller to pair with starter DeVante Parker. However, that doesn't mean the team is out of contention for drafting a wide receiver this year. Atwell averaged an impressive 16.6 yards per reception in college and scored a number of 50+ yard touchdowns. He could be an underrated slot option for quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and push for playing time as soon as next season. The Dolphins owns five selections in the first three rounds, so this could be a sneaky pick up for them.
