2022 NFL Mock Draft

Round 1 | Round 2

1) Houston Texans – Spencer Rattler QB, Oklahoma 6’1″ 205 lbs
Rattler is off to a good start. Put 40 points on the board vs Tulane but their defense let them down & they only won by 5. Scored 76 points in game 2 so the offense is really on track. The Sooners are in good shape to make a run to the college football playoff so Rattler should stay on top of the Texan’s need list.

2) Detroit Lions – Kayvon Thibodeaux EDGE/ OLB, Oregon 6’5″ 258 lbs
I think this is the best all-around player in the country. The Lions need an ER in a big way. Didn’t play in the big victory over Ohio St. in the shoe. Fast, physical & strong pass rusher with a quiver full of moves.

3) New York Jets – Derek Stingley Jr. CB, LSU 6’1″ 198 lbs
The Jets need CB, WR, LB, TE so they grab the top CB prospect. Stingley is the best CB prospect in several years. In 2019 his freshman season he produced an eye popping 6 interceptions & 15 passes broken up. In 2020 he had 27 tackles, 5 passes broken up & 1 forced fumble.

4) Jacksonville Jaguars – Evan Neal OT, Alabama 6’7″ 360 lbs
The Jags decide to select a blindside protector for QB Trevor Lawrence for the next decade. Played ROT in 2020 & was great. In 2019 he played ROG & had a good season. In 2021 their moving him to LOT where he should dominate the SEC. XLNT in pass protection & opens up massive holes for the ground game which is vital to the Tides offense.

5) Philadelphia Eagles – Matt Corral QB, Ole Miss 6’2″ 205 lbs
Corral is getting red hot under HC Lane Kiffen who is making big news in the SEC West. He’s off to a great start with the Rebs being 2-0. Look for Kiffen to open up the playbook a little more & let Corral go. This team is going to be a handful for all of their opponents. If the Eagles are picking this high then they need to get some competition for QB Jalen Hurts.

6) Cincinnati Bengals – Drake Jackson EDGE, USC 6’4″ 275 lbs
The Bengals need more pressure on opposing QB’s so they decide to take Jackson who I think will have a big break-out year. Strong, physical & fast ER with a good 1st step burst. If the Trojans continue to win then his stock will rise.

7) Las Vegas Raiders – DeMarvin Leal DT/DE, Texas A&M 6’4″ 290 lbs
The Raiders have a big hole in the middle of their defense. Leal is the best 3tech available for this draft. Is just as effective at DE also. Well coached by Jimbo Fisher & his staff in College Station who is starting to produce NFL quality players.

8) New York Giants – Zach Harrison EDGE, Ohio St. 6’6″ 265 lbs
The Giants need more from the EDGE. Harrison has good experience & should have a big break-out year in 2021.For his career in Columbus he has 38 tackles, 5.5 sacks, 10.5 tackles for loss, 2 passes blocked & 1 forced fumble.

9) Atlanta Falcons – Adam Anderson EDGE/OLB, Georgia 6’5″ 234 lbs
This player is faster than a speeding bullet with his 1st step speed. Maybe the fastest I’ve ever seen. He gets by OTs & refs before they know what’s happening. Should have a huge break-out year in 2021. Has the ability & talent to dominate in the SEC & that’s saying something.

10) Carolina Panthers – Justyn Ross WR, Clemson 6’4″ 210 lbs
The Panthers need to get QB Sam Darnold a true #1 WR to kick start this offense.
Didn’t play in 2020 due to injury but in 2019 he had 66 receptions for 865 yards & 8 touchdowns. In 2018 he produced 46 catches for 1,000 yards & 9 touchdowns for a 21.7 avg.

11) New York Giants (from chi) – Kyle Hamilton SS/FS, Notre Dame 6’4″ 216 lbs
The G-men need ER/S/OT/CB so they pick the best Safety prospect in this draft. In 2020 he had 56 tackles, 1 interception & 6 passes broken up. In 2019 his freshman year he had 41 tackles, 4 interceptions & 6 passes broken up. If he gets better in pass coverage & his downhill tackling his stock could really take off.

12) Pittsburgh Steelers – Trevor Penning OT, Northern Iowa 6’7″ 329 lbs
NFL scouts are grading this player out as the top OT for this draft but I disagree. The Steelers need help up & down their offensive line. XLNT in pass protection & opens up massive holes for the rush game. Plays against inferior competition but time will tell.

13) Arizona Cardinals – Jalen Wydermyer TE, Texas A&M 6’5″ 260 lbs
The Cards need TE, CB, OT,S so they decide to select the best TE prospect for this draft. Can run the seam or sideline. Good blocker on the OL & downfield. For his career he has 78 receptions, 953 yards & 12 touchdowns. Hard to bring down when he gets up to speed.

14) Washington Football Team – Sam Howell QB, North Carolina 6’1″ 225 lbs
The WFT needs to take a QB to study under Fitzmagic for the future. In 2020 he hit on 68.1% of his passes for 3586 yards, 30 touchdowns & 7 interceptions. In 2019 he hit on 61.4% of his targets for 3641 yards 38 touchdowns & 7 interceptions.

15) Denver Broncos – Tyler Shough QB, Texas Tech / Oregon 6’5″ 223 lbs
I like this player & expect a big year from him in 2021. Graduate transfer from Oregon. In 2020 he hit on 63.6% of his attempts for 1480 yards, 13 touchdowns & 5 interceptions. He’s very fast & shifty for a player with his frame. Transferred to Texas Tech to be under same HC as Patrick Mahomes.

16) Philadelphia Eagles (from ind) – Kaiir Elam CB, Florida 6’2′ 193 lbs
This player has the talent & upside to just explode onto the scene in 2021. In 2020 he had 39 tackles, 2 interceptions & 11 passes defended. Has an XLNT skill set to go with height, length & quickness. This is the Eagles biggest need.

17) Minnesota Vikings – Sevyn Banks CB, Ohio St. 6’1″ 200 lbs
The Vikes lost 2 CB’s to FA so some replacements are needed. 2 year stats are 35 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, 1 interception, 9 passes defended & 1 forced fumble for a touchdown.

18) Los Angeles Chargers – Kenyon Green G/OT, Texas A&M 6’4″ 328 lbs
3 year starter in College station. Best interior offensive linemen available for this draft. The Chargers are building a formidable wall for young QB Justin Herbert. Plug him in next to this year’s top pick Rashawn Slater & they will be set for years.

19) New Orleans Saints – Kedon Slovis QB, USC 6’2″ 208 lbs
The Saints need a young QB to develop behind Winston & Hill. In 2020 he had a 67% completion rate for 1921 yards, 17 touchdowns & 7 interceptions. In 2019 his freshman year he had a 72% rate for 3502 yards, 30 touchdowns & 9 interceptions.

20) New England Patriots – Josh Jobe CB, Alabama 6’1″ 190 lbs
The Pats lost 2 CB’s & a Safety to FA & retirement so HC Bill Belichick fills the biggest hole 1st. 2 year starter in Tuscaloosa. Very well coached by HC Nick Saban & his staff. Can play cover man or zone but is better in cover man. Has a nose for the football. So the pipeline continues from Tuscaloosa to Foxborough.

21) Philadelphia Eagles (from mia) – Rasheed Walker OT, Penn St. 6’6″ 320 lbs
The Eagles need some new blood on their offensive line so they decide to dip into their backyard. 2 year starter for the Nittany Lions. Very solid in pass protection & opens up nice running lanes for the rush game. Good local pick who should pan out well.

22) Dallas Cowboys – George Karlaftis EDGE, Purdue 6’4″ 270 lbs
The Cowboys need a new presence on the EDGE. Was injured in 2020 so only compiled 4 tackles & 2 sacks. But in 2019 he had a break-out year with 54 tackles & 7.5 sacks. Should bounce back with a strong season in 2021.

23) New York Jets (from sea) – Chris Olave WR/SWR, Ohio St. 6’1″ 188 lbs
Fast & elusive WR who runs good routes & has solid hands. For career he has 110 receptions, 1766 yards & 22 touchdowns for a 16.1 avg. Young QB Wilson will love this player.

24) Tennessee Titans – Christian Harris ILB, Alabama 6’2″ 245 lbs
The Titans need a difference-maker in the middle of their defense. Clutch player for the Tide. Always around the football. 2 year stats are 140 tackles, 4 sacks, 14.5 tackles for loss 1 interception, 3 passes defended & 1 forced fumble.

25) Cleveland Browns – Aiden Hutchinson EDGE, Michigan 6’5″ 266 lbs
The Brownies need a strong ER to pair with All Pro Myles Garrett. In 2020 he cracked an ankle so was limited to 13 tackles & 1 pass blocked. But in 2019 he had a break-out year with 68 tackles, 4.5 sacks & 2 forced fumbles. Was all over the field against Washington.

26) Miami Dolphins (from sf) – Isaiah Spiller RB, Texas A&M 6’1″ 225 lbs
The Phish need a 3 down back & they can get that here. 2 year rushing stats are 1982 yards, 19 touchdowns for a 5.5 avg. Also had 49 receptions for 396 yards. Has strong legs to just rip LB’s arm tackles. Possesses a nice straight arm to pick up yards after contact. XLNT receiver out of the backfield & an awesome blocker for his
QB.

27) Baltimore Ravens – Zion Nelson OT, Miami 6’5″ 316 lbs
This is typical of the Ravens. Their biggest need falls right into the GM’s lap. 3 year starter for the Canes. Rock solid in pass protection & can open up nice holes for the ground game. I know that the Ravens have a big crush on Bama players but over the years they have shown a strong preference for Cane players too.

28) Green Bay Packers – Garrett Wilson WR/SWR, Ohio St. 6′ 193 lbs
Ego maniac Aaron Rodgers gets his way. Runs a good route tree & has responsible hands. Very good speed with solid moves to get into the open spot. 2 years stats are 73 receptions, 1155 yards & 11 touchdowns. Should fit in well with the Pack’s offense.

29) Detroit Lions (from lar) – John Metchie III SWR/WR, Alabama 6′ 195 lbs
The Lions need 2 WR’s early in this draft because they don’t have squat at the position. Possesses all the talent needed to have an enormous year. Should be the Tide’s new go to WR in 2021. Great speed, flashy moves & sticky fingers. 2 year totals are 59 receptions, 959 yards & 6 touchdowns for a 16.0 avg.

30) Buffalo Bills – Charles Cross OT, Mississippi St. 6’5″ 310 lbs
2 year starter in Starkville. Can move his hands & feet at same time to help keep ER’s at bay. Smooth in pass protection & good at blasting open good running lanes for the rush game. This is one of the Bills few needs. They have a loaded roster & are knocking on the Super Bowls door.

31) Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Breece Hall RB, Iowa St. 6’1″ 212 lbs
The Bucs need a good all-around RB. Pretty much owns all the Cyclones rushing records. Solid & durable RB who is an XLNT receiver out of the backfield & a good blocker for his QB. Has good strength to pick up yards after contact.

32) Kansas City Chiefs – Jermaine Johnson EDGE, Florida St. 6’4″ 255 lbs
Transferred from Georgia because he was buried on the depth chart & has great talent that needs to be exposed. Fast, strong & furious Edge rusher. Reads plays developing in front of him & responds well. This is the Chief’s biggest need.
