TD 2022 NFL MOCK DRAFT



 

ROUND 1

 

1. Jacksonville Jaguars - Travon Walker, DE | Georgia


In GM Balke's last couple seasons with the 49ers he took DE's Arik Armstead and DeForest Buckner in back to seasons and helped that team build a dominant defense. Each were top tier talents for the position but didn't exactly have the greatest film.


DE Walker is the unicorn freak of this class and similarly doesn't exactly have incredible film, but, is a better prospect than either of those two. Whether or not he'll translate that talent to similar success....


NFL Comp: shredded Stephon Tuitt

 

2. Detroit Lions - Aidan Hutchinson, DE | Michigan


Hutchinson's a prototype edge DE and he'll show up as both a pass rusher and run defender even if he's not a prolific stat stuffer. HC Campbell's comments that the defense will see more 4 DL sets this season just matches up well with this pick.


NFL Comp: taller Maxx Crosby

 

3. Houston Texans - Drake London, WR | USC


GM Caserio was part of a Patriot's FO that had an absolutely awful record of picking 1st round WR's. On one hand you could look at that as he should stay far away, but you could also look it as, if you have an opportunity at a blue chip... don't pass it up. Texans have needs across the board but a #1 WR is one of them.


NFL Comp: angry Alshon Jeffrey

 

4. New York Jets - Jermaine Johnson, DE | Florida St


Johnson's the most complete edge prospect in this class after Hutchinson. Sauce Gardner is on the board but the Jets have good young talent already at the position and a legit void on the edge.


NFL Comp: DeMarcus Lawrence

 

5. New York Giants - Ikem Ekwonu, OT | N.C. State


One of the offensive lineman is likely to be the Giants first pick and Ekwonu is one of the most explosive OL prospects I've seen. He has some coaching up to be a truly reliable pass blocker but his run blocking will be a day 1 impact.


NFL Comp:


 

6. Carolina Panthers - Kenny Pickett, QB | Pitt


Pickett and Darnold are pretty similar QBs but the critical difference is that Pickett projects as a much better game manager....which is precisely what the Panthers were looking for from Darnold.


Pickett is a reach but the Panthers don't pick again until the the 4th round. If a QB or anyone for that matter was the target on day 2...here is where you take them if they're your guy.


NFL Comp: Jake Delhomme

 

7. New York Giants - Kayvon Thibideaux, DE | Oregon


Explosive on the field and pretty loud off of it. Thibideaux isn't a technically adept edge guy yet but the raw get off and power are easily evident.


NFL Comp: Justin Houston

 

8. Atlanta Falcons - Sauce Gardner, CB | Cincinnati


Falcons are building with a side-eye to 2023. At this point bpa is more or less the strategy imo. Unless they want to be completely transparent about the tank and take a WR that won't even see the field in 2022, I think the consensus top CB is the pick if he's on the board.


NFL Comp: skinny Nnamdi Asomugha

 

9. Seattle Seahawks - Evan Neal, OT | Alabama


Warranted or not, I'm taking into account the late rumors that some teams have concerns about Neal's health and figuring he drop just a bit.


NFL Comp:


 

10. New York Jets - Jameson Williams


Assuming he returns to 100 health, Williams has the speed to be a game changing threat. I'm not as convinced his overall game is as complete but I'm buying that teams are viewing him as an elite talent.


NFL Comp: bigger T.Y. Hilton


 

11. Washington Commanders - Malik Willis, QB | Liberty


I'm not convinced Carson Wentz is anything but a bridge QB in Washington. Willis has plenty of development ahead but isn't drastically different from the guy Rivera had in Carolina and could be handed the keys in one or two seasons depending on which Wentz shows up.


NFL Comp: Kordell Stewart

 

12. Minnesota Vikings - Derek Stingley, CB | LSU


One of the greatest CB prospects since Pat Peterson has come down to Earth but could clearly be a steal if 100 healthy.


NFL Comp: clean Marcus Peters

 

13. Houston Texans - Kyle Hamilton, S | Notre Dame


Hamilton's a rock solid safety prospect but once "the freak" came out of his description, he fell down some boards.


NFL Comp: bigger Justin Simmons

 

14. Baltimore Ravens - Trent McDuffie, CB | Washington


Simply put, I think McDuffie's too good for the Ravens to pass up here.


NFL Comp: Chidobe Awuzie

 

15. Philadelphia Eagles - George Karlaftis, DE | Purdue


I think Karlaftis as a prospect fares really favorably to guys the Eagles have liked like Graham and Barnett.


NFL Comp: Olivier Vernon

 

16. New Orleans Saints - Matt Corral, QB | Ole Miss


Jameis isn't the long term guy in New Orleans. The Saints FO took a good look at the market before resigning him. I think Corral fits well into the scheme and could get an opportunity to iron out things for a season while Winston eats some W's.


NFL Comp: tougher Marcus Mariota

 

17. Los Angeles Chargers - Jordan Davis, DT | Georgia


Planet Hulk is precisely what the Chargers need for their scheme.


NFL Comp: Linval Joseph

 

18. Philadelphia Eagles - Daxton Hill, S | Michigan


Hill is quietly the most versatile defensive prospect in this class.


NFL Comp: skinny Troy Polamalu

 

19. New Orleans Saints - Charles Cross, OT | Mississippi St


Cross as a prospect should go much higher than this but concerns over the scheme he played could potentially drop him a bit.


NFL Comp:

 

20. Pittsburgh Steelers - Nakobe Dean, LB | Georgia


Steelers have a track record of taking freak athletes with dog mentalities that might not fit everyone's prospect frameworks.


NFL Comp: smaller Roquan Smith

 

21 New England Patriots - Devin Lloyd, LB | Utah


Patriots have needs at offensive line, wide receiver and CB...so they'll take a LB. Lloyd is exactly the king of versatile anticipatory weapon they tend to covet.


NFL Comp: 235lb Dont'a Hightower

 

22. Green Bay Packers - Tyler Linderbaum, OC | Iowa


GM Gutekunst missed on Creed Humphrey last year but could redeem himself this go around with Linderbaum.


NFL Comp:

 

23. Arizona Cardinals - Travis Jones, DT | UConn


The Cards have a big giant void at the center of their defense upfront and Jones is an ideal fit.


NFL Comp:

 

24. Dallas Cowboys - Zion Johnson, OG | Boston College


The foundation of the Cowboys is finally starting to erode and it's time to reinvest.


NFL Comp:

 

25. Buffalo Bills - Breece Hall, RB | Iowa St


The Bills have few weaknesses but their reliance on Allen to carry the team as both the leading passer and rusher isn't sustainable. Hall is talented and fast and if nothing else brings a legit homerun hitter into the backfield.


NFL Comp: bigger Lamar Miller

 

26. Tennessee Titans - Devonte Wyatt, DT | Georgia


Wyatt's talented enough to be a top ten pick and the Titans need to ensure the talent upfront remains steady with age and cap questions upcoming.


NFL Comp: stronger Jaye Howard

 

27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Kenneth Walker, RB | Michigan St


Brady had the most attempts of his career last season in year 21. Balancing the offense and adding a blue chip runner to share carries with the predictably unreliable Fournette is

a sound strategy.


NFL Comp: 5'9 Deuce McAllister

 

28. Green Bay Packers - Treylon Burks, WR | Arkansas


I'd wager Burks and Rogers would have good chemistry from the jump.


NFL Comp: thick Amari Cooper

 

29. Kansas City Chiefs - Andrew Booth, CB | Clemson


Booth's plays CB like Mathieu played safety.


NFL Comp: Carlos Rogers

 

30. Kansas City Chiefs - Boye Mafe, DE | Minnesota


Mafe comes equipped with the skill set to start and contribute straight away.


NFL Comp: Carl Lawson

 

31. Cincinnati Bengals - Trevor Penning, OT | Northern Iowa


Bengals addressed their OL in the off season and could look at bpa here at the end of the first. Penning fits that and also bolsters what was once a weakness.


NFL Comp;

 

32. Detroit Lions - Garrett Wilson, WR | Ohio State


I think either OSU could be a fit at the bottom of round 1 as a potential #1 or competent #2 WR for the Lions.


NFL Comp: Sterling Shepard
