NFL Draft Prospects in the 2022 VRBO Citrus Bowl

NFL Draft Prospects in the 2022 VRBO Citrus Bowl

The bowl season gives fans and scouts alike a chance to analyze NFL Draft prospects against solid competition. Bowl scheduling allows all eyes to be on each game. Here are the NFL Draft prospects in the 2022 VRBO Citrus Bowl.

Kentucky Wildcats Draft Prospects

Darian Kinnard, OT

Kinnard has plenty of experience because he rotated into the lineup early in his career. He played nine games and started two as a freshman. Kinnard was a full-time starter in 2019 at right tackle. His play in 2020 earned him a spot on the All-SEC First Team and several All-American teams by several outlets. He stayed at right tackle in 2021 and was a First Team All-American.

At 6-foot-5 and 345 pounds, Kinnard has tremendous size for an NFL offensive lineman. While he has mostly played right tackle at the collegiate level, some may project him to move inside and play guard. Either way, he is a projected early-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: First Round Pick-Third Round Pick

Wan’Dale Robinson, WR

Robinson started his career at Nebraska before transferring back to his home state of Kentucky. He has 2,078 receiving yards, 691 rushing yards and 14 total touchdowns in his career. This season, 1,164 receiving yards, 111 rushing yards and seven touchdowns.

At 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds, Robinson is not the biggest receiver. His speed and elusiveness in the open field make him a unique player. He also has experience on kick return early in his career. Robinson is a projected day two or early day three pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Second Round Pick-Fourth Round Pick

Other Draft Prospects: Edge Joshua Pascal (3rd-5th), OT Dare Rosenthal (5th-7th), RB Chris Rodriguez (5th-7th), S Yusuf Corker (5th-7th), DL Marquan McCall (6th-UFA), QB Will Levis (UFA), EDGE Jordan Wright (UFA)

Iowa Hawkeyes Draft Prospects

Tyler Linderbaum, OG/C

Linderbaum saw limited playing time in 2018 as a freshman. He then stepped into the lineup at center during the 2019 season and was named a Big Ten Honorable Mention. His play in 2020 and 2021 helped him become an All-American in both years.

At 6-foot-3 and 290 pounds, Linderbaum isn’t the biggest interior offensive lineman. He does have a wrestling background and knows how to use his leverage though. Linderbaum can really get a push in the running game and can get to the second level. He is a projected top 20 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Top 20 Pick

Riley Moss, CB

Moss has played since his freshman season, but has really made an impact over the last two seasons. He has 108 total tackles, 10 interceptions and 15 passes defended in his career. This season, Moss has registered 36 total tackles, four interceptions and five passes defended in 10 games played. He also scored two defensive touchdowns on the year.

He has solid size for an NFL defensive back at 6-foot-1 and 194 pounds. Moss could play safety or corner at the next level, but in either case his decent arm length will help him. He is a projected mid-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Third Round Pick-Fifth Round Pick

Other Draft Prospects: RB Tyler Goodson (4th-6th), LB Jack Campbell (5th-7th), LB Jestin Jacobs (6th-UFA), CB Matt Hankins (6th-UFA), TE Sam LaPorta (UFA), EDGE Zach VanValkenberg (UFA), QB Spencer Petras (UFA), WR Charlie Jones (UFA)
