2022 NFL Draft Composite Grades For All 32 NFL Teams

2022 NFL Draft Composite Grades For All 32 NFL Teams

The 2022 NFL Draft is behind us, and today, we examine the final 2022 NFL Draft grades. Introducing the Football Scout 365 NFL Draft composite grade. We combined five of the industry's top NFL Draft sites, including ESPN/Mel Kiper, PFF, the Ringer/Chad Kelly, CBS/Chad Prisco, and NFL.com, to develop a consensus final grade for this year's NFL Draft. Link To Shared Google Doc With All Grades What The Data Tells Us. The Top Two Consensus Graded Teams The consensus winners of the 2022 NFL Draft are the Baltimore Ravens, who received no worse than an A grade from all five sources, including 3 A+ grades. The New York Jets follow the Ravens. Their lowest grade (A-) came from PFF. Seven Teams Received an Overall A Grade We have seven teams who received an A or A- grade, Baltimore Ravens, New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, Detroit Lions, Atlanta Falcons, and the Green Bay Packers. The New England Patriots Graded The Worst The lowest overall grade in the draft was the New England Patriots (C-). PFF awarded the Patriots a D grade, Mel Kiper and NFL.com awarded them their highest grade (C+). Chicago Bears Receive Mixed Reviews The Chicago Bears received various grades, NFL.com being the main outlier awarding the Bears with an A-, and Kiper graded them a C+. The Ringer awarded a C-, PFF a D, and CBS C-. Overall, the Bears graded 3rd from the Bottom with a C+.

2022 NFL Draft: After a Chaotic 1st Round, We list Our Top Ten Available And Mock The 2nd Round

2022 NFL Draft: After a Chaotic 1st Round, We list Our Top Ten Available And Mock The 2nd Round

Day one of the 2021 NFL draft provided a lot of chaos, and if you are like me, the more chaos and confusion, the better. Teams were franticly making trades to procure a currently rostered NFL player or get themselves into a position to draft a critical need. Trade Chaos As Teams Scramble To Land A Big Time WR The chaos began with three consecutive trades at picks 11, 12, and 13. At the same time, the Ravens sent Marquise Brown packing to the Arizona Cardinals, followed by the Titans trading A.J. Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles! The WR position played a huge role in all of these round one trades where we had 6 WR's drafted in within the first 18 picks. Overall, there were nine total trades in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Jets won the night, picking three players ranked inside the top 20 Football Scout 365 Big Board. They started the night snagging Ahmad Sauce Gardner pick 4; they followed that up by getting the Explosive Garrett Wilson out of Ohio State. The Jets traded from 35 to 26 to get the 4th ranked Edge rusher on our board (12th overall), Jermaine Johnson, out of Florida State. They addressed the secondary, pass rush and then grabbed a dynamic playmaker for their 2nd year QB, Zach Wilson. If the Jets won the night, the Lions were a close 2nd. The Lions did not disappoint after having the top edge rusher on the Football Scout 365 Big Board fall into their lap (Aidan Hutchinson). They followed up by trading their 32nd and 34th overall picks to the Vikings to move up to pick 12 and snag the top WR on our board, Jameson Williams, out of Alabama. So what can we expect in round two? Below are the top ten best available heading into day two of the 2022 NFL Draft. Check out the Football Scout 365 NFL Draft Big Board 2nd Round Mock 33). Tampa Bay Buccaneers (from JAX) IDL Travis Jones Uconn The first pick of round two goes to the Bucs, and with Ndamukong Suh still unsigned, they may opt for DT. The best available is LB Nakobe Dean. The Bucs could also go after a CB, with Andrew Booth Jr still available. They Could also get one of the two available edge players with a high ceiling in Boye Mafe and Arnold Ebikete. They could also address IOL in this spot. 34). Minnesota Vikings (from DET) Edge Boye Mafe Minnesota The Vikings have needs at DB, edge, and LB. They can have their choice of CB Andrew Booth Jr., LB Nakobe Dean, edge rushers Boye Mafe, or Arnold Ebikete. Michigan Edge David Ojabo, a top ten player on our board until he tore his achilles at his pro day, is still available. 35). Tennessee Titans (from NYJ) Edge David Ojabo Michigan The Titans have needs on the IOL, and they can use an Edge. I would also consider Malik Willis in this spot. 36). New York Giants QB Malik Willis Liberty The Giants could go many different ways in this spot, and this feels like a perfect spot to take your potential QB of the future in Malik Willis. 37). Houston Texans LB Nakobe Dean Georgia The Texans are suddenly showing a legit pulse, and with Nakobe Dean landing in their lap, they can pair him with Derek Stingley as they continue to rebuild the defense. 38). New York Jets (from CAR) OT Bernard Raimann Central Michigan The Jets could go LB in this spot, but we decided to add the best available OT to provide Mechi Becton insurance. 39). Chicago Bears WR George Pickens, Georgia The Bears have very little draft capital, so taking one of the best WR's in terms of upside to pair with your year two QB is an intelligent move. 40). Seattle Seahawks (from DEN) QB Desmond Ridder Cincinnati Seattle grabs a new QB 41). Seattle Seahawks Edge Arnold Ebikete Penn State The Seahawks grab a developmental edge rusher. 42). Indianapolis Colts (from WAS) WR Christian Watson NDSU The Colts add a serious deep threat at WR to help out Matt Ryan and open up more opportunities for Michale Pittman in one-on-one situations. 43). Atlanta Falcons CB Andrew Booth Jr. Clemson After taking Drake London in round one, the Falcons get one of the top CB's in terms of upside in this draft. 44). Cleveland Browns IDL Perrion Winfrey The Browns secure one of the top IDL based on upside. He is a solid pass rusher from the inside, he needs to improve in the run game, but this is a reliable option for the Browns at a position of need. 45). Baltimore Ravens WR Skyy Moore Western Michigan The Ravens traded away Hollywood Brown, and they have an immediate need at WR; they go with the speedy Skyy Moore. Moore led FBS in forced missed tackles in 2021 and will in quite nicely with Rashod Bateman in the Ravens offense. 46). Detroit Lions (from MIN) S Jalen Pitre Baylor The Lions could go QB here. The Lions can continue to address their secondary by going with a safety. We have two available, Jalen Pitre and Jaquan Brisker. Pitre is the lesser ranked on our board and the better fit paired opposite Tracy Walker. 47). Washington Commanders (from IND) LB Troy Andersen Montana State The Commanders need help in the middle of their defense; they go with the converted QB turned LB who possesses 4.4 sideline to sideline speed with good LB size. 48). Chicago Bears (from LAC) S Jaquan Brisker Penn State The Bears go after one of the more versatile safeties in the class. Brisker can provide support at all three levels of your defense. 49). New Orleans Saints TE Greg Dulcich UCLA The Saints get one of the more athletic TE's after the catch in the class. The Saint's offense is looking pretty nasty to this point. 50). Kansas City Chiefs (from MIA) RB Kenneth Walker III Michigan State The Chiefs have solid options in this spot at WR, John Metchie is available, but it's challenging to ID his fit among the current Chiefs receivers. If the Chiefs believe in Mecole Hardman, they may be content with their current group, and in a league where defenses are utilizing more two-high shells, getting an elite RB might be the route to go. George Pickens, if available, makes a lot of sense. 51). Philadelphia Eagles CB Kyler Gordon Washington The Eagles go out and get one of the more raw DB's in the draft. Gordon has elite-level upside and versatility. He can play inside and outside. 52). Pittsburgh Steelers WR John Metchie Alabama If Metchie makes it this far, it's a no-brainer pairing him with Chase Claypool and Diontae Johnson. Metchie can play in the slot and is a polished route runner. 53). Green Bay Packers (from LV) WR David Bell Purdue The Packers lost out on Metchie, but Bell might be better for an offense that needs a true outside receiver. Bell is not just a physical WR; he is a polished route runner. His slower than expected 40 times at the combine is why he has fallen this far, but the Packers are known for drafting WR's lower and getting elite production. 54). New England Patriots Edge Nik Bonitto Oklahoma The Patriots could go IDL, but they get a versatile Edge/LB who is one of the more consistent pass rushers in the draft. 55). Arizona Cardinals LB Brian Asamoah Oklahoma After procuring Hollywood Brown in a draft-day trade, the Cardinals have several needs along the OL and could use an edge defender, LB, or a CB. 56). Dallas Cowboys Edge Drake Jackson USC The Cowboys could use A LB or an Edge. They get one with a mountain of upside. 57). Buffalo Bills RB Breece Hall Iowa State The Bills were in the market for an upgrade at RB during free agency; they were shopping for a versatile player at the position. They draft arguably the most versatile in the class. 58). Atlanta Falcons (from TEN) QB Matt Corral Ole Miss The Falcons go out and get a QB with solid upside. 59). Green Bay Packers OT Luke Goedeke Goedeke will likely slide into an IOL role early on. He is a solid run blocker with good upside. 60). Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Trey Mcbride Colorado State The Bucs go get a Gronk replacement who can block and catch. McBride has TE1 upside and will provide immediate impact in this offense. 61). San Francisco 49ers Edge Josh Pachal Kentucky The 49ers go with an edge player who can flip inside and play a three tech if needed. 62). Kansas City Chiefs WR Jalen Tolbert South Alabama After taking Kenneth Walker, the Chiefs take their shot at a WR. Tolbert is a speedy long deep threat with a wide catch radius. He is older (23), but pairing him with Mahomes in this spot makes sense. 63). Cincinnati Bengals LB Chad Muma Wyoming Muma is a versatile LB who can play anywhere off of the football. He has legit NFL size; he can pass rush and drop into coverage. He will need some time to develop but has a ton of high-end upside. 64). Denver Broncos (from LAR) OT Abraham Lucas Washington State Late riser who needs time to develop his pass pro.

2022 NFL Draft: Mock Draft 2.1, Draft Day Edition

2022 NFL Draft: Mock Draft 2.1, Draft Day Edition

The mock draft 2.1 is here. Today is the day. Today's mock draft will have zero trades, though I highlight spots teams might want to trade out of. It is a first-round only mock draft, and I focus on team needs and players that I would draft in each spot based on team situation or scheme. Compared to the mock draft 2.0 from a day ago, this edition is more of a "gut feeling" edition. I will draft based on tea leaves, while also considering the team's needs. Check out the Football Scout 365 NFL Draft Big Board 1). Jacksonville Jaguars (Edge Travon Walker, Georgia The current conversation about who the Jags should select number one overall is a hot topic. Travon Walker checks all the boxes with his measurables and possesses a similar athletic profile to Miles Garrett. Walker has the ceiling to go number one overall and is 4th overall on our big board, but Aidan Hutchinson (number one on our board) also checks a lot of boxes and provides the high floor and instant impact potential. Hutchinson is also an athletic marvel with production to match. The Jags ultimately go with the walker upside here, but we believe Hutchinson might be a player that provides a more immediate impact. 2). Detroit Lions (Edge Aidan Hutchinson, Michigan) There is real trade appeal in this spot for the Detroit Lions, who can go many different ways. CJ from the Football Scout 365 NFL Podcast made an excellent argument for Malik Willis in this spot a week ago. I believe there are enough teams high enough on Willis to make a move here. But if the Lions keep the pick, don't be surprised if the New York Giants make a move for that two spot to secure the big-armed Malik Willis. The new Giants headman (Brian Daboll) might want a fresh start at QB and a rookie deal. But today, the Lions secure the more logical pick and go with the hometown prospect. 3). Houston Texans (CB Derek Stingley, LSU) Two of the top three teams in the draft have a need at QB, but the Texans appear to be moving forward with 2nd year QB Davis Mills. The Texans have their eyes on the 2023 QB class, which is fair, but you might kick the tires if you can go QB in this spot. You can go several ways by skipping QB here, DB's Ahmad Gardner and Derek Stingley, OT Ikem Ikwonu, or Evan Neal. I believe this is an area you can go with Edge again, and you have Kayvon Thibodeaux still available in this spot. 4). New York Jets (CB Ahmad Gardner UC) The logical pick for any of these teams is to protect their best assets, and with Zach Wilson entering year two and questions surrounding Mechi Becton's health, the Jets can use this pick as insurance to secure the OL. But with two top ten picks, the Jets can afford to draft an impact defender and wait to draft an OT. 5). New York Giants (Edge Kayvon Thibodeaux, Oregon) In the mock 2.0, we took Malik Willis, today's mock has an elite edge rusher falling into their laps. 6). Carolina Panthers (OT Ikey Ekwonu, NC State) Yesterday, I discussed that the Panthers would go QB in this spot. Today, I want to go best available OT. Let's pretend that Ben McAdoo really meant what he said about Darnold being "the guy". 7). New York Giants (OT Evan Neal, Alabama) In the mock 2.0, we took Malik Willis, they grabbed an elite edge rusher at pick 5, now let's add protection to help out Daniel Jones. 8). Atlanta Falcons (QB Malik Willis, Liberty) A month or so ago, I mentioned that it was clear the Falcons are tanking for Bryce because he is so nice, or C.J. Stroud because he makes the crowd loud. Here we are at pick 8, and I am considering a QB. A few months back, I would have never considered three QB's in the top ten. But the data and the mindset have changed. The reality is you cannot bank on waiting a year for two college QB's who are not can't miss. We are not talking about Trevor Lawrence's level of talent at QB in 2023 (yet), and that's why you cannot waste time making a move. The Falcons are a prime trade-back candidate, but if not, go with the best available QB. 9). Seattle Seahawks (OT Charles Cross, Mississippi State) Here we are again, another team with a need at QB, and they might fall short of snagging one of the top two in this class. The Seahawks are primed to trade back. Seattle has a choice, go with Kenny Pickett, take a shot on Desmond Ridder, or simply fill another need. 10). New York Jets (OT Trevor Penning, Northern Iowa) The Jets have a lot of needs; they can go CB in this spot, and they could also choose to go with another OT. But it's time to break the seal on the WR's and go with our top guy out of Alabama. You have a premiere tackle and an elite offensive weapon to pair with your second-year QB. 11). Washington Commanders (CB Trent McDuffie, Washington) The Commanders have six picks in the draft, so they have to make them count. Trading back for more capital might be a great route to go. But assuming they remain at pick 11, they start by filling a position of need, if one of the top OT's is available it's a no-brainer, they could go with the best available CB, and obviously, everyone thinks they go WR here. 12). Minnesota Vikings (Edge Jermaine Johnson, FSU) Another trade candidate, but assuming they remain in this position, they can work on solidifying their secondary, or they can go with the best available edge assuming one of the higher tier guys falls. 13). Houston Texans (S Kyle Hamilton, Notre Dame) In mock 2.0 they drafted edge at three overall; in mock 2.1, today, they drafted a CB at pick three. Kyle Hamilton is still on the board. Go get him. 14). Baltimore Ravens (IOL Zion Johnson, Boston College) The Ravens are negotiating with Lamar Jackson to extend or sign a new deal, and how they draft can have an adverse effect on how these negotiations transpire. We believe that even if Ronnie Stanley returns at full health, they still need to solidify their OL. 15). Philadelphia Eagles (WR Garrett Wilson, Ohio State) With Chris Olave available, the Eagles decided to go with his former Ohio State teammate. Olave is similar stylistically to Devonta Smith, and even though most coaches can make that work, it feels like Garrett Wilson falls into the "better fit" category. You now provide Jalen Hurts with a much-needed field-stretching weapon to go with Smith. 16). New Orleans Saints (WR Jameson Williams, Alabama) The Saints have many options without a QB on the board that you'd consider in this spot. You can go WR in this spot, OT, or the best available defender. With a need at WR, the Saints can afford to wait, but the availability of top-tier talent to pair with Jameis Winston might be too hard to pass up. 17). Los Angeles Chargers (WR Chris Olave, Ohio State) The Chargers can make a flashy pick to add a WR, or they can go with a potential 10-year player on the interior of their OL. Protecting Justin Herbert has to be a priority, but I can see the Chargers feeling the need to add a WR in an already loaded division full of big-time playmakers. 18). Philadelphia Eagles (LB Nakobe Dean, Georgia) Pick two in round one for the Eagles. In the 2.0 mock, we had Kyle Hamilton available. Today, we have the versatile Georgia LB. 19). New Orleans Saints (IDL Jordan Davis, Georgia) The Saints made some low-cost additions in Kentavius Street and Jaleel Johnson. Still, neither moves the needle, and David Onyemata is in a contract year. Adding a dominant force like Jordan Davis into the middle of your defense is a no-brainer. 20). Pittsburgh Steelers (QB Kenny Pickett, Pitt) The Steelers have Mitchell Trubisky at QB, a solid WR group just waiting to be unlocked, and one of the top young RB's in football. The Steelers will take a QB assuming Willis, Pickett, or Ridder are in this spot, but would they reach for Sam Howell or Matt Corral? They will need to trade into the top ten based on our current mock to get what they want at QB. So let's assume, for the sake of argument, they are unable to procure a trade-up move, they can wait until round two, or they can reach here. With a pick at 52, they can try to wait out Nevada's Carson Strong or trade back in round one to trade up in round two. I say all of this, but they might reach at pick 20. 21). New England Patriots (LB Devin Lloyd, Utah) The Patriots have solidified their WR group in recent years with names like Nelson Agholor and DeVante Parker (sarcasm). While both players are solid, neither will be WR1 material; maybe Parker can get there, but their need at WR is evident, and I will not allow myself to overthink this pick. The Patriots make a splash by going with USC WR Drake London, a player many believe can be the first off the board. 22). Green Bay Packers (WR Drake London, USC) Yesterday, we had George Pickens in this spot after Drake London went to the Pats. 23). Arizona Cardinals (IOL Kenyon Green, Texas A&M) After losing Chandler Jones to free agency, the Cardinals need to add a pass rusher. The Cardinals could go after some IOL help in this spot. 24). Dallas Cowboys (Edge George Karlaftis, Purdue) The Cowboys can go many ways; one popular route is to draft another LB and then move Parsons to the edge or to draft an edge player and move Parson's around as needed. I believe that regardless of who you draft, Parson's still moves around to confuse offenses. So what route makes sense? They could draft a WR, or maybe consider IOL? The logical pick is edge defender. Get a guy that frees up Parson's. 25). Buffalo Bills (CB Andrew Booth Jr. Clemson) The Bills have a need at CB with questions surrounding the health of Tre’Davious White. If White is healthy, I'd consider drafting a RB. The Bills looked into CMC and almost brought in J.D. McKissic until it fell through. They have an apparent interest in versatile RB's. That leads me to believe they might be interested in one of the top RB's in this class. I have mocked Kenneth Walker in this spot, and it would make sense to go with the more proven receiver at RB Iowa State's Breece Hall. But it's the need at CB that is glaring and will ruin the fun for me in this spot; let's hope the Bills can turn around at pick 57 and land RB Rachaad White from Arizona State. 26). Tennessee Titans (WR Jahan Dotson, Penn State) The Titans have needs throughout, but one glaring need is on the interior of their OL after the departure of David Quessenberry. But with the two top IOL's off the board, the Titans can add a versatile WR. 27). Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Edge Boye Mafe) With the Bucs (potentially) moving on from Jason Pierre-Paul, the need to fill the void is quite significant. They could also use CB depth. I really like Devin Lloyd due to his versatility; he rushes the passer, and you can move him to the edge when needed. He does not possess the NFL Combine speed of a Micah Parson's, but he has more size than a Nakobe Dean and is a downhill player who can help vs. the run. If Lloyd is not available, they could go with Boye Mafe. 28). Green Bay Packers (S/NB Dax Hill, Michigan) After snagging WR Drake London, the Packers can fill a need or go the best available. I'm filling a need with one of the best available by taking versatile Safety/Nickel Dax Hill out of Michigan. Hill played more Nickel than deep safety in 2021, and that's why he is so appealing. He has good length with elite 4.3 speed and can become a very good nickel at the NFL level. 29). Kansas City Chiefs (WR George Pickens, Georgia) I like George Pickens here, but he has moved up on my board, and I would like to pretend that he is higher on actual NFL GM draft boards. With that said, I am concerned about the edge position, and the Chiefs need to add secondary depth. 30). Kansas City Chiefs (CB Kaiir Elam, Florida) I like George Pickens here, but he has moved up on my board, and I would like to pretend that he is higher on actual NFL GM draft boards. With that said, I am concerned about the edge position, and the Chiefs need to add secondary depth. 31). Cincinnati Bengals (Edge David Ojabo, Michigan) The Bengals are not making a top-ten pick, and that feels different. If you are a Bengals fan, you might not even be awake for the first time in a long time when the pick is announced. With that said, the Bengals need IOL help and CB help, but they may be able to wait and get a steal right here with Edge David Ojabo. 32). Detroit Lions (IDL Devonte Wyatt, Georgia) After snagging a top edge at pick two, the Lions have their eyes on another defender to bolster their defense. With needs at CB, IDL, LB, and WR, the Lions have a lot of early-round draft capital to work with.

2022 NFL Draft: Mock Draft 2.0, The Day Before The Draft

2022 NFL Draft: Mock Draft 2.0, The Day Before The Draft

The mock draft 2.0 is here. We are one day away from the start of the 2022 NFL Draft. Today's mock draft will have zero trades, though I highlight spots teams might want to trade out of. It is a first-round only mock draft, and I focus on team needs and players that I would draft in each spot based on team situation or scheme. Compared to the mock draft 1.0 from February, this edition has 4 QB's going in round one, with three in the top ten. I have three edge rushers going in the first three picks; mix and match as you wish. I have five total edge rushers going in round one. The first WR off the board is at pick ten overall to the Jets. I have six total WR's going in the first round. Check out the Football Scout 365 NFL Draft Big Board 1). Jacksonville Jaguars (Edge Aidan Hutchinson, Michigan The current conversation about who the Jags should select number one overall is a hot topic. Travon Walker checks all the boxes with his measurables and possesses a similar athletic profile to Miles Garrett. Walker has the ceiling to go number one overall and is 4th overall on our big board, but Aidan Hutchinson (number one on our board) also checks a lot of boxes and provides the high floor and instant impact potential. Hutchinson is also an athletic marvel with production to match. 2). Detroit Lions (Edge Travon Walker, Georgia) There is real trade appeal in this spot for the Detroit Lions, who can go many different ways. CJ from the Football Scout 365 NFL Podcast made an excellent argument for Malik Willis in this spot a week ago. I believe there are enough teams high enough on Willis to make a move here. But if the Lions keep the pick, don't be surprised if the New York Giants make a move for that two spot to secure the big-armed Malik Willis. The new Giants headman (Brian Daboll) might want a fresh start at QB and a rookie deal. But today, the Lions secure the more logical of players and go with Edge Travon Walker. 3). Houston Texans (Edge Kayvon Thibodeaux, Oregon) Two of the top three teams in the draft have a need at QB, but the Texans appear to be moving forward with 2nd year QB Davis Mills. The Texans have their eyes on the 2023 QB class, which is fair, but you might kick the tires if you can go QB in this spot. You can go several ways by skipping QB here, DB's Ahmad Gardner and Derek Stingley, OT Ikem Ikwonu, or Evan Neal. I believe this is an area you can go with Edge again, and you have Kayvon Thibodeaux still available in this spot. 4). New York Jets (OT Ikem Ekwonu, NC State) The logical pick for any of these teams is to protect their best assets, and with Zach Wilson entering year two and questions surrounding Mechi Becton's health, the Jets can use this pick as insurance to secure the OL. 5). New York Giants (QB Malik Willis, Liberty) The Giants will break the internet, but as I alluded to earlier, the Giants have a new head coach and have yet to secure Daniel Jones's 5th-year option. The Giants have an opportunity to draft their QB of the future. The strong-armed athletic Malik Willis makes a lot of sense in this spot, and if the Giants do not trade back, why not give your first-year head coach Brian Daboll a QB with similar traits to his former QB in Buffalo (Josh Allen). Malik Would enter the league with an opportunity to play in a QB-friendly scheme, and if they move on from Daniel Jones, he can be mentored by Tyrod Taylor as he gets acclimated to the speed of the NFL. 6). Carolina Panthers (QB Kenny Pickett, Pittsburgh) The Giants break the internet with pick five, followed by the Panthers saying we are not confident in Sam Darnold. Since February, the logical pick for me has been QB in this spot if you can get Malik Willis or Kenny Pickett. If neither is available, I would consider Desmond Ridder. I believe teams take their shot on QB's earlier than expected due to positional need and the idea that if they don't take their shot now, teams like the Saints and the Steelers are looking to make their move. 7). New York Giants (OT Evan Neal, Alabama) The Giants just secured their QB of the future; now it's time to ensure he can stay upright. With OT Evan Neal dropping this far due to some late medical information, the Giants get a massive steal and a potential ten-year player that can play both tackle positions. 8). Atlanta Falcons (QB Desmond Ridder, Cincinnati) A month or so ago, I mentioned that it was clear the Falcons are tanking for Bryce because he is so nice, or C.J. Stroud because he makes the crowd loud. Here we are at pick 8, and I am considering a QB. A few months back, I would have never considered three QB's in the top ten. But the data and the mindset have changed. The reality is you cannot bank on waiting a year for two college QB's who are not can't miss. We are not talking about Trevor Lawrence's level of talent at QB in 2023 (yet), and that's why you cannot waste time making a move. The Falcons are a prime trade-back candidate, but if not, go with the guy (Desmond Ridder) who profiles similar to Ryan Tannehill. 9). Seattle Seahawks (CB Ahmad (Sauce) Gardner, Cincinnati) Here we are again, another team with a need at QB, and they fell short of snagging one of the top three in this class. The Seahawks are primed to trade back, but in this mock, we are going to go with one of the best available at a position of need and a position that has a lower bust rate. 10). New York Jets (WR Jameson Williams, Alabama) The Jets have a lot of needs; they can go CB in this spot, and they could also choose to go with another OT. But it's time to break the seal on the WR's and go with our top guy out of Alabama. You have a premiere tackle and an elite offensive weapon to pair with your second-year QB. 11). Washington Commanders (CB Derek Stingley Jr. LSU) The Commanders have only six picks in the draft, so they have to make them count. Trading back for more capital might be a great route to go. But assuming they remain at pick 11, they start by filling a position of need at CB with our top-rated CB due to his high ceiling, Derek Stingley Jr. 12). Minnesota Vikings (CB Trent McDuffie, Washington) Another trade candidate, but assuming they remain in this position, they can work on solidifying their secondary. McDuffie is the third-best option at CB and can play a versatile role in the NFL, flipping inside and outside at CB. 13). Houston Texans (OT Charles Cross, Mississippi State) They drafted edge at three overall; now, they can help their second-year QB stay upright by snagging one of the top OT prospects. If Davis Mills does not work out, you still have a centerpiece at OT heading into the 2023 NFL Draft. 14). Baltimore Ravens (OT Trevor Penning, Northern Iowa) The Ravens are negotiating with Lamar Jackson to extend or sign a new deal, and how they draft can have an adverse effect on how these negotiations transpire. We believe that even if Ronnie Stanley returns at full health, they still need to solidify their OL. 15). Philadelphia Eagles (WR Garrett Wilson, Ohio State) With Chris Olave available, the Eagles decided to go with his former Ohio State teammate. Olave is similar stylistically to Devonta Smith, and even though most coaches can make that work, it feels like Garrett Wilson falls into the "better fit" category. You now provide Jalen Hurts with a much-needed field-stretching weapon to go with Smith. 16). New Orleans Saints (WR Chris Olave, Ohio State) The Saints have many options without a QB on the board that you'd consider in this spot. You can go WR in this spot, OT, or the best available defender. With a need at WR, the Saints can afford to wait, but the availability of top-tier talent to pair with Jameis Winston might be too hard to pass up. The Saints decide to go with the consensus pick and route running savant Chris Olave. 17). Los Angeles Chargers (IOL Zion Johnson, Boston College) The Chargers can make a flashy pick to add a WR, or they can go with a potential 10-year player on the interior of their OL. Protecting Justin Herbert has to be a priority, but I can see the Chargers feeling the need to add a WR in an already loaded division full of big-time playmakers. 18). Philadelphia Eagles (S Kyle Hamilton, Notre Dame Pick two in round one for the Eagles, and they have an opportunity to fill a massive need in their secondary with a player who can play three different roles on your defense. I don't believe Hamilton falls this far, he is too good, and his ceiling is arguably the highest of any player in this draft. If he is available, this is an easy decision. 19). New Orleans Saints (IDL Jordan Davis, Georgia) The Saints made some low-cost additions in Kentavius Street and Jaleel Johnson. Still, neither moves the needle, and David Onyemata is in a contract year. Adding a dominant force like Jordan Davis into the middle of your defense is a no-brainer. 20). Pittsburgh Steelers (QB Sam Howell, UNC) The Steelers have Mitchell Trubisky at QB, a solid WR group just waiting to be unlocked, and one of the top young RB's in football. The Steelers will take a QB assuming Willis, Pickett, or Ridder are in this spot, but would they reach for Sam Howell or Matt Corral? They will need to trade into the top ten based on our current mock to get what they want at QB. So let's assume, for the sake of argument, they are unable to procure a trade-up move, they can wait until round two, or they can reach here. With a pick at 52, they can try to wait out Nevada's Carson Strong or trade back in round one to trade up in round two. I say all of this, but they might reach at pick 20. 21). New England Patriots (WR Drake London, USC) The Patriots have solidified their WR group in recent years with names like Nelson Agholor and DeVante Parker (sarcasm). While both players are solid, neither will be WR1 material; maybe Parker can get there, but their need at WR is evident, and I will not allow myself to overthink this pick. The Patriots make a splash by going with USC WR Drake London, a player many believe can be the first off the board. 22). Green Bay Packers (WR George Pickens, Georgia) With the Patriots intercepting Drake London, the Packers have an opportunity to snag the athletically gifted George Pickens from Georgia. If Pickens can remain healthy, he can be an instant impact player in year one with Aaron Rodgers. 23). Arizona Cardinals (Edge Jermaine Johnson, FSU) After losing Chandler Jones to free agency, the Cardinals need to add a pass rusher in this spot. If Jermaine Johnson makes it this far, it feels like a perfect fit. The Cardinals could go after some IOL help in this spot, but they can likely get a guy in the later rounds to help fill that need. 24). Dallas Cowboys (Edge George Karlaftis, Purdue) The Cowboys can go many ways; one popular route is to draft another LB and then move Parsons to the edge or to draft an edge player and move Parson's around as needed. I believe that regardless of who you draft, Parson's still moves around to confuse offenses. So what route makes sense? They could draft a WR, or maybe consider IOL? The logical pick is edge defender. Get a guy that frees up Parson's. 25). Buffalo Bills (CB Andrew Booth Jr. Clemson) The Bills have a need at CB with questions surrounding the health of Tre’Davious White. If White is healthy, I'd consider drafting a RB. The Bills looked into CMC and almost brought in J.D. McKissic until it fell through. They have an apparent interest in versatile RB's. That leads me to believe they might be interested in one of the top RB's in this class. I have mocked Kenneth Walker in this spot, and it would make sense to go with the more proven receiver at RB Iowa State's Breece Hall. But it's the need at CB that is glaring and will ruin the fun for me in this spot; let's hope the Bills can turn around at pick 57 and land RB Rachaad White from Arizona State. 26). Tennessee Titans (IOL Kenyon Green, Texas A&M) The Titans have needs throughout, but one glaring need is on the interior of their OL after the departure of David Quessenberry. What better option than Texas A&M IOL Kenyon Green. Green can play both IOL and flip outside to play tackle. He is a great run blocker that can provide an immediate impact as a rookie on the interior. 27). Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LB Devin Lloyd, Utah) With the Bucs (potentially) moving on from Jason Pierre-Paul, the need to fill the void is quite significant. They could also use CB depth. I really like Devin Lloyd due to his versatility; he rushes the passer, and you can move him to the edge when needed. He does not possess the NFL Combine speed of a Micah Parson's, but he has more size than a Nakobe Dean and is a downhill player who can help vs. the run. 28). Green Bay Packers (S/NB Dax Hill, Michigan) After snagging the explosive WR George Pickens, the Packers can fill a need or go the best available. I'm filling a need with one of the best available by taking versatile Safety/Nickel Dax Hill out of Michigan. Hill played more Nickel than deep safety in 2021, and that's why he is so appealing. He has good length with elite 4.3 speed and can become a very good nickel at the NFL level. 29). Kansas City Chiefs (WR Jahan Dotson, Penn State) The first of back-to-back draft picks, the Chiefs need a WR. The issue in this draft position is that you are left with more slot or z off ball style WR's unless you believe you can develop Treylon Burks into a more physical outside player. I like George Pickens here, but he has moved up on my board, and I would like to pretend that he is higher on actual NFL GM draft boards. With that said, I am concerned about the edge position, and the Chiefs need to add secondary depth. If I cannot get an edge, I like here, or if I choose to wait, I might take IDL Devonte Wyatt out of Georgia. 30). Kansas City Chiefs (Edge Boye Mafe, Minnesota) The first of back-to-back draft picks, the Chiefs need a WR. The issue in this draft position is that you are left with more slot or z off-ball style WR's unless you believe you can develop Treylon Burks into a more physical outside player. I like George Pickens here, but he has moved up on my board, and I would like to pretend that he is higher on actual NFL GM draft boards. With that said, I am concerned about the edge position, and the Chiefs need to add secondary depth. If I cannot get an edge, I like here, or if I choose to wait, I might take IDL Devonte Wyatt out of Georgia. 31). Cincinnati Bengals (CB Kaiir Elam, Florida) The Bengals are not making a top-ten pick, and that feels different. If you are a Bengals fan, you might not even be awake for the first time in a long time when the pick is announced. With that said, the Bengals need IOL help and CB help. 32). Detroit Lions (LB Nakobe Dean, Georgia ) After snagging a top edge at pick two, the Lions have their eyes on another defender to bolster their defense. With needs at CB, IDL, LB, and WR, the Lions have a lot of early-round draft capital to work with, and with that said, I believe they can fill a massive need in the middle of their defense by snagging Georgia LB Nakobe Dean.

Players On the Rise After The 2022 NFL Combine

Players On the Rise After The 2022 NFL Combine

Speed, Speed, and More Speed at The WR Position Leading up to the 2022 NFL combine, I promised not to overreact to the results. Well, as they say, promises are meant to be broken. The 2022 NFL combine delivered what felt like unrealistic results until the corrections in the 40-yard dash. Among the WR's, 18 players recorded a 4.4 or better, 8 with a 4.3 or better, and one with a 4.28 (Baylor's Tyquan Thornton). Chris Olave Is Fast and Elite, Garrett Wilson Solidified His Instant Impact Status I almost fainted when Olave ran an unofficial 4.26, but the official time came out as 4.39. I was still very impressed. Olave is a smooth route runner who confirmed he has the elite speed to go with those route-running chops. Garrett Wilson's 4.38 40 was also impressive. Wilson, like Olave, is considered at worst a top 20 overall prospect. David Bell Had a Meh Combine I expected Bell to run a 4.6 40, and he ran an official 4.65, so that was fine. But his vertical and broad jump was just meh. I expected a bit more athleticism from Bell. You cannot deny his on-field ability. He is a heady player and an elite-level route runner that I believe will be a day one NFL starter with Instant Impact potential. David Bell Remains In My Top 5 Overall At The WR Position David Bell remains among my top 5 WR's and is the 20th overall prospect on our board. I am reluctant to move Bell back because he possesses that immeasurable "it" factor. But When evaluating Chris Olave, Jameson Williams, and Garrett Wilson, they too have the immeasurable "it" factor about their game. But Bell's "it" is different; he played with mediocre QB's at Purdue and still flourished in the Big Ten. I am re-evaluating the situation, but regardless we are higher than almost every NFL Draft pundit on David Bell. NDSU WR Christian Watson Is A Dude Watson posted an insane 4.36 40, a 38.5inch vertical, and the combines top broad jump among the receivers at 11'4''. At 6-4 208lbs, Watson is an excellent athlete, and his 2022 NFL Combine numbers match his tape. He is on the rise and garnering 2nd round interest. Kenneth Walker and Breece Hall Solidified Their Status As The Two Best RB's The RB position provided some speed as well. Michigan State RB Kenneth Walker III recorded a 4.38, which is elite, and a tick faster than the 4.39 Jonathon Taylor recorded a few years ago at the NFL Combine. Walker is the top RB on the Football Scout 365 NFL Draft Big Board, followed by Iowa State RB Breece Hall, who ran a 4.39 while also posting a 40'' vertical, indicating how explosive Breece Hall is. South Dakota State RB Pierre Strong recorded the fastest 40 among the RB's with a 4.37; he tied Rutgers RB Isiah Pacheco for the fastest 40 among the RB's. Georgia RB's Zamir White And James Cook Looked Good Two other players that shined at the RB position through their 40-yard dash and on-field drill work, Georgia RB's Zamir White and James Cook. White ran a 4.4, and surprisingly, he was a few ticks faster than his speedy teammate James Cook who posted a 4.42. Both players shined during on-field drills, displaying excellent footwork and pass-catching ability. Arizona State RB Rachaad White Shows of His Athleticism I love White's game, he popped on his film, and I immediately could see how his game translates to the NFL. He solidified my belief at the 2022 NFL Combine by posting a better 40 than I projected (4.48) and a 38in vertical. His vertical and broad jump shows that he is explosive, and for those who are meh about White, He is a player we are extremely high on and believe possesses the necessary player traits to be a dude in the NFL. The DL Group Is Deep and Talented And Led By Two Georgia Players The 6-6, 341 lb Jordan Davis got a lot of praise and buzz after posting a 4.78 40, and rightfully so, considering he is a mountain with arms and legs. I have poured over his game, and I was critical of his limited snaps at Georgia, and I believed his limited snaps could hinder him at the NFL level, but I am no longer buying into that narrative. Davis is reportedly the fastest player at or above 330 lbs since 2006, and he also recorded a 10'3'' broad jump, another NFL Combine record for a 330+lb player. His 10 yard split of 1.68 is elite for a player his size. Georgia IDL Devonte Wyatt shined at the 2022 NFL Combine. Like Jordan Davis, he recorded a 4.77 40, a tick faster than Davis. Wyatt is not as big as Davis, standing at 6-3, 304lbs, but is equally impressive. His 10 yard split of 1.66 is an elite number for an IDL. By comparison, Joey Bosa, an Edge rusher, ran a 1.65 10 yard split. Aidan Hutchinson Shined and Remains Our Top Prospect, But He Has More Competition Entering The Number One Overall Discussion Aidan Hitchinson solidified his number one status, but he now has more competition entering the number one pick discussion. Hutchinson recorded a 4.74 40, a 36in vertical, 117in broad, 6.73 3-cone, and 4.15 20-yard shuttle. Hutchinson recorded a 1.62 10 yard split. Here Comes Travon Walker Georgia Edge rusher Travon Walker at 6-5, 272 lbs, recorded a blistering 4.51 40 yards dash, a 35.5in vertical, 123in broad jump, a 6.89sec 3-cone, and a 4.32 shuttle. The upside here is unimaginable, and his tape matches the 2022 NFL Combine numbers. Walker is in the discussion as a top ten pick; and can challenge the likes of Aidan Hutchinson, Evan Neal, Iken Ekwonu, and Kayvon Thibodeaux for the first or second overall pick. Some Edge Rusher Numbers From Past Combines To Use As A Comparison By comparison, TJ Watt recorded a 4.69 40 and a 1.59 10 yard split, Myles Garrett recorded a 4.63 40 and a 1.63 10 yard split, Nick Bosa ran a 4.79 40 and a 1.55 10 yard split. Kyle Hamilton Is a freak Athlete, But He Didn't wow With His 40. He Remains A Top Ten Overall Prospect. Kyle Hamilton did not run a blazingly fast 40 (4.59), but his size and range at the safety position are undeniable. He did post a 38in vertical and a 10'11'' broad Jump. Both numbers were good for second at his position. Georgia Safety Lewis Cine Added his Name To The Best Safety Debate. Lewis Cine ran a 4.37 40, posted a 36.5in vertical, and an 11'1''broad jump. Cine is a player who can play near the line of scrimmage, but his 40 and athleticism is a sign that he has the upside to do more. Baylor's Kaylon Barns, Sam Houston State's Zyon McCollum, and UTSA's Tariq Woolen Post Blazingly fast 40's Kaylon Barns posted a combine best 4.23 40, while UTSA CB Tariq Woolen, at 6-4 205lbs posted a 4.26. Sam Houston's Zyon Mccollum posted a 4.33. Ahmad Gardner Solidified His Top CB Status On Our Board Gardner ran a 4.4 40, displayed his athleticism during on-field drills, and did nothing to hurt his status.

Player Profile Name: Treylon Burks School: Arkansas Razorbacks Recruiting Profile: Click Here Position: WR Height: 6-3 Weight: 225 Year: Junior Jersey Number: 16 Offensive Scheme: Kendal Briles Offensive Coordinator: Veer and Shoot, RPO Heavy Games Reviewed: 2021 Alabama, 2021 Ole Miss, 2021 Texas A&M, 2021 Auburn, 2021 Georgia Position Specific Critical Factors Hands (7) Very Good The best WR's in football display great hands; they can snatch or pluck the football when in tight coverage or the wide-open field. Some receivers use their bodies when catching and therefore need more development as hands catchers. Separation (6) Very Good A player's ability to separate from a defender while running a route is dependent on his ability to run a precise and clean route. Separation is not just the prospect's ability to separate with speed, but his ability to run several routes at a high level. The prospect's ability to sell a route to get a defender out of position is also a key way for a player to gain separation. Players with a limited route tree can make it easier for defenders to predict their route running tendencies. The ability to use their body to box out is another way to gain separation. After Catch Ability (8) Very Good A running back with the football in their hands, receivers who can catch a football and make defenders miss in open space, or that can break tackles is a commodity at the highest level of football: high-level WR's show elusiveness, strength, speed, and display toughness after the catch. Key Strengths 50/50 Balls After the Catch Ability Physical Key Weaknesses Route Running Pass Game Summary In the passing game, Burks is physical at 6-3, 225lbs. He displays reliable hands; he can high point the football and excels in 50/50 situations. Burks is not a nuanced route runner, an area he must work to improve at the NFL level. He plays a high percentage in the slot where he gets a free release, but he needs to be more comfortable playing on the outside when required in the NFL. He could play predominantly in the slot, but that limits his versatility, especially as a bigger player that coordinators can move around to gain a mismatch. Burks has experienced issues gaining separation early in his routes, which is one reason he has played in the slot. When lined up out wide, he will need to rely on his ability to box out and make 50/50 plays vs. a defender, something that will be far more difficult in the NFL. He has a high-level football IQ, and you can see why based on usage in college. Arkansas lined him up in the slot, in the boundary, and in the backfield, and that is why he has drawn comparisons to Debo Samuel. He possesses the wide back versatility NFL coaches, and GM's are looking for in today's WR's. Burks has a knack for making the big plays. Many of these happen in traffic downfield or on plays where he turns into a RB after the catch. He is comfortable receiving multiple touches per game. He consistently had games of ten touches or more at Arkansas. Run Game Summary Burks is not just utilized to block in the run game. Whatever team drafts him will look to maximize his ability to make plays with the ball in his hands by jet sweeps or out of the backfield. He is a fierce competitor who will block as needed in the run game, but his value will be on plays he gets touches in the run game. Final Analysis Burks was a highly coveted football player coming out of high school. The former 4-star recruit had a lot of high-profile offers. As mentioned above, scouts view Burks in the same way that Debo Samuel is viewed as a multi-purpose player in the NFL. His versatility is why he appeals to so many in this draft class.
