The 2022 NFL Draft is here and it is time to look at what may happen. Here is the 2021 NFL Mock Draft April 28.
1. Jacksonville Jaguars- Travon Walker, DL, Georgia
It is rumored that the Jaguars are arguing over who to take. General Manager Trent Baalke wants Walker so that may be the pick. He will aid the Jaguars’ pass rush across from Josh Allen.
2. Detroit Lions- Aidan Hutchinson, EDGE, Michigan
Detroit has a solid offensive line, but needs help in plenty of other places. They can select Hutchinson, who is a local product, to help the pass rush.
3. Houston Texans- Derek Stingley, CB, LSU
The new rumors out there are that the Texans like Stingley. He has dealt with injuries the last few seasons, but had a great freshman season at LSU.
4. New York Jets- Ahmad Gardner, CB, Cincinnati
Gardner is a good, lanky corner who would really fill a need for the Jets early in the draft.
5. New York Giants- Ikem Ekwonu, OT, NC State
If the Giants want to give Daniel Jones one last chance to prove he is a good quarterback, they need to improve the offensive line. Ekwonu is a good athlete, who could move in to guard if needed.
6. Carolina Panthers- Kenny Pickett, QB, Pittsburgh
Pickett is reportedly the quarterback that the Panthers want. A trade up into later in the draft (or down from this spot) may happen to make the value fit more.
7. New York Giants- Kayvon Thibodeaux, EDGE, Oregon
The Giants can really improve their pass rush with the addition of Thibodeaux. He is falling on some boards, but would be good value in the top 10.
8. Atlanta Falcons- Drake London, WR, USC
After getting Marcus Mariota to play quarterback, the Falcons need to get him some weapons outside of Kyle Pitts. London is a bigger receiver who specializes in winning jump balls.
9. Seattle Seahawks (via DEN)- Evan Neal, OT, Alabama
Seattle has needed to fix their offensive line for a long time. They also happen to need a quarterback now, but fixing the offensive line first should be the priority. Neal is huge, but has solid athleticism for his size.
10. New York Jets (via SEA)- Jermaine Johnson, EDGE, Florida State
The Jets are reportedly interested in Johnson, but not at pick number four. After getting a corner earlier, they can improve their pass rush with this pick.
11. Washington Commanders- Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State
Washington has two solid receivers in Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel. They need one more to really help out Carson Wentz. Wilson is a good route runner who can win on the outside.
12. Minnesota Vikings- Kyle Hamilton, S, Notre Dame
Minnesota doesn’t have too many needs after free agency and can take the best player available. Hamilton can slot in next to Harrison Smith to give the Vikings a very good safety tandem.
13. Houston Texans- Charles Cross, OT, Mississippi State
The Texans need help all over. They can improve their offensive line and give Davis Mills a chance to succeed next season with the addition of Cross.
14. Baltimore Ravens- Jordan Davis, DL, Georgia
The Ravens need a big nose tackle to be disruptive in the middle of their 3-4 defense and Davis is a perfect fit. Michael Pierce was brought back, but Davis’ value may be to hard to pass up.
15. Philadelphia Eagles- Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas
Jalen Hurts has earned the right to start next season at quarterback. The Eagles need more weapons for him to utilize along with DeVonta Smith. Burks is big and has plenty of athleticism.
16. New Orleans Saints- Jameson Williams, WR, Alabama
With Jameis Winston back at quarterback, they need to get him more weapons outside of Michael Thomas. Williams has good speed and knows how to change it to get open.
17. Los Angeles Chargers- Devonte Wyatt, DL, Georgia
Wyatt can help the Chargers’ run defense improve next season. The Chargers have loaded the defense up, but still need help on the interior.
18. Philadelphia Eagles (via NO)- Quay Walker, LB, Georgia
It happened late in the process, but Walker now has the highest odds to be the first linebacker selected.
19. New Orleans Saints (via PHI)- Andrew Booth, CB, Clemson
After getting an additional wide receiver, the Saints can improve their secondary. Booth is an athletic corner, who presents good value in the middle of the first round.
20. Pittsburgh Steelers- Malik Willis, QB, Liberty
The Steelers reportedly want Willis. They may have to trade up to get him, but he looks like the favorite for Pittsburgh.
21. New England Patriots- Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State
The Patriots need to get Mac Jones more help at wide receiver if they want him to be successful long-term.
22. Green Bay Packers (via LV)- Christian Watson, WR, North Dakota State
Green Bay traded away Davante Adams and needs to get another wide receiver to help Aaron Rodgers.
23. Arizona Cardinals- Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington
Arizona doesn’t have many needs, but could get a corner to develop across from Byron Murphy.
24. Dallas Cowboys- Tyler Linderbaum, OG/C, Iowa
The Cowboys’ offensive line isn’t what it once was, so they need to improve to help the offense, even after they averaged the most points per game.
25. Buffalo Bills- Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida
After Tre White went down with an injury, Buffalo was thin at corner. They also just lost Levi Wallace in free agency.
26. Tennessee Titans- Devin Lloyd, LB, Utah
Tennessee signed Zach Cunningham last season, but he may not be a long-term answer at linebacker.
27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Zion Johnson, OG/C, Boston College
Ali Marpet has retired, which means the Buccaneers need to find another offensive lineman to fill in.
28. Green Bay Packers- Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia
Green Bay needs another inside linebacker to pair with De’Vondre Campbell.
29. Kansas City Chiefs- George Karlaftis, EDGE, Purdue
The Chiefs need to improve their defense and Karlaftis presents great value at the end of the first.
30. Kansas City Chiefs (via MIA)- Kyler Gordon, CB, Washington
Getting a corner to combat the good offenses in the division would be prudent for the Chiefs.
31. Cincinnati Bengals- Kenyon Green, OG/C, Texas A&M
The Bengals have made a real effort to upgrade their offensive line this offseason. They can fill a hole at left guard with the selection of Green, who could also play center if necessary.
32. Detroit Lions (via LAR)- Travis Jones, DL, UConn
Detroit can get better on the interior of their defensive line and Jones is huge. He will help make their defensive line a lot more disruptive.
33. Jacksonville Jaguars- Tyler Smith, OT, Tulsa
If Doug Pederson wants to improve the offensive line, maybe he’ll get the chance in the second round.
34. Detroit Lions- Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State
The Lions have to get more receivers for Jared Goff to utilize.
35. New York Jets- Breece Hall, RB, Iowa State
Michael Carter is a good change of pace back, but Hall could handle more of a full workload.
36. New York Giants- Darian Kinnard, OT, Kentucky
The Giants can improve all over their offensive line and Kinnard can move to the interior.
37. Houston Texans- George Pickens, WR, Georgia
Mills needs more receivers to throw to in order to be successful.
38. New York Jets- Skyy Moore, WR, Western Michigan
The Jets will want to get Zach Wilson as many weapons as possible in this draft.
39. Chicago Bears- Trevor Penning, OT, Northern Iowa
Protecting Justin Fields is imperative for the Bears.
40. Seattle Seahawks- Desmond Ridder, QB, Cincinnati
Drew Lock is the current projected starter and Pete Carroll may want to get someone new just in case.
41. Seattle Seahawks- David Ojabo, EDGE, Michigan
The Seahawks don’t have the pass rush they once had and Ojabo could be an impact player down the road.
42. Indianapolis Colts- Arnold Ebiketie, EDGE, Penn State
Indianapolis is hoping that Yannick Ngakoue can produce, but taking a young edge rusher could really help.
43. Atlanta Falcons- Daxton Hill, S, Michigan
Improving the defense always seems like a need for the Falcons.
44. Cleveland Browns- DeMarvin Leal, DL, Texas A&M
The Browns don’t have too many needs, but could use some better interior linemen.
45. Baltimore Ravens- Leo Chenal, LB, Wisconsin
Getting another linebacker wouldn’t be a bad idea, as some of the young ones on the Ravens’ roster haven’t lived up to expectations.
46. Minnesota Vikings- David Bell, WR, Purdue
The Vikings need a reliable third receiver and Bell fits that mold.
47. Washington Commanders- Channing Tindall, LB, Georgia
Washington needs a linebacker who can make an impact.
48. Chicago Bears- Myjai Sanders, EDGE, Cincinnati
After trading away Khalil Mack, the Bears need someone to pass rush across from Robert Quinn.
49. New Orleans Saints- Logan Hall, DL, Houston
New Orleans could use a versatile defensive lineman like Hall.
50. Kansas City Chiefs- Jalen Tolbert, WR, South Alabama
The Chiefs may want to load up on wide receiver after trading away Tyreek Hill.
51. Philadelphia Eagles- Lewis Cine, S, Georgia
Philadelphia needs some help at the backend of their defense.
52. Pittsburgh Steelers- Daniel Faalele, OT, Minnesota
After getting a quarterback in the first, the Steelers need to make sure to protect him.
53. Green Bay Packers- Zach Tom, OG/C, Wake Forest
Green Bay has lost some good offensive linemen over the last few years and needs to replace them.
54. New England Patriots- Roger McCreary, CB, Auburn
Losing J.C. Jackson to free agency hurts and the Patriots will want some youth at the position.
55. Arizona Cardinals- Boye Mafe, EDGE, Minnesota
Chandler Jones is in Las Vegas and more pass rushers are needed in Arizona.
56. Dallas Cowboys- Nik Bonitto, EDGE, Oklahoma
Randy Gregory left in free agency and a new pass rusher would help DeMarcus Lawrence.
57. Buffalo Bills- Isaiah Spiller, RB, Texas A&M
Zack Moss and Devin Singletary have failed to take over the backfield.
58. Atlanta Falcons- Nicholas Petit-Frere, OT, Ohio State
If they don’t get a new quarterback in this draft, the Falcons better improve the offensive line for when they do get one.
59. Green Bay Packers- Greg Dulcich, TE, UCLA
Is Robert Tonyan more than a flash in the pan? The Packers may want to draft a tight end just in case.
60. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Trey McBride, TE, Colorado State
O.J. Howard is gone and Rob Gronkowski is a free agent, so tight end depth is a need.
61. San Francisco 49ers- Coby Bryant, CB, Cincinnati
If the 49ers keep Deebo Samuel, they can focus on improving at cornerback.
62. Kansas City Chiefs- Phidarian Mathis, DL, Alabama
The Chiefs can really improve all-around their roster with their picks in the first two rounds.
63. Cincinnati Bengals- Tariq Woolen, CB, UTSA
After upgrading their offense, the Bengals can get more on defense. Woolen has good size and speed.
64. Denver Broncos- Christian Harris, LB, Alabama
The Broncos are gearing up for a Super Bowl run, but need better play from their linebackers.
