The 2022 NFL Draft has arrived. Each year in the NFL Draft, over 200 college players are selected by one of the 32 NFL franchises, and have a chance to play at the highest level.. With the draft process comes “mock drafts”; predictions as to what player each team will do with their first-round pick. In this draft we will allow for “mock trades” between teams. By using our brains, looking at statistics, and reading numerous articles here is our 2022 NFL Mock Draft.


  1. Jaguars- Travon Walker DL- Georgia 

Recently, we have heard a lot about Walker going number one. He would be a great player to jump start a lowly Jags. D. Walker had a breakout year this season. He had a great combine as well. More physically gifted than Hutchinson.


  1. Lions-  Aiden Hutchinson EDGE- Michigan

Hutchinson stays in Michigan. Walker or Hutchinson could be flipped flopped and Detroit would be happy with either. Hutchinson was outstanding this year, a constant headache to the opposition’s offensive line. He plays super hard and had a good draft combine.


  1. Texans- Ikem Ekwonu OT- North Carolina State

Texans need everything. Mills is a pretty good QB so you need to give him some protection. It might not be a flashy pick, though it is a smart one.


  1. Jets- Sauce Gardner CB- Cincinnati

With a strong star player on defense the Jets can turn around the trend of recent years. Gardner is super athletic and will be great for Robert Saleh’s system. Could become the next Derrelle Revis.


  1. Giants- Evan Neal OT- Alabama

The Giants offensive line was garbage last season. Neal is a huge upgrade on what they had before.


  1. Panthers- Kenny Pickett QB- Pittsburgh

Do we really think that the Panthers will start the year with Sam Darnold? They need someone like Pickett who can start week one to save them from another year with Darnold. Pickett is a safe pick. The Panthers though could spring for Malik Willis though he would likely need to wait a year before being NFL ready.


  1. Giants- Kayvon Thibodeaux EDGE- Oregon

Best player left on the board. Little surprising that he fell this far. The raw athleticism makes up for the lower numbers this season at Oregon. He does have Boom or Bust potential though.


  1. Falcons- Garrett Wilson WR- Ohio State

And just like the first receiver is off the board. Ever since Julio Jones left it has not been the same for the Falcons. Paired with Kyle Pitts the weapons for Marcus Marriota are not as bad as it seemed.


  1. Seahawks- Derek Stingley Jr. CB- LSU

Injuries were the story after an insane freshman campaign. There are concerns about health but the raw talent might just be too much for the Seahawks to let pass by.


  1. Jets- Jameson Williams WR- Alabama

Williams would have probably been the first WR gone if not for the ACL tear in January. Even if he doesn’t start week one that would be okay for the rebuilding Jets. Williams is the number one receiver that the Jets need. If the Jets can get Gardner and Williams it will be a huge win and a reason for Jet fans to rejoice. Also, watch out for the Jets to maybe trade this pick with others to get Deebo Samuel from the 49ers. I don’t think that will happen though so I feel they go with Williams.


  1. Commanders- Drake London WR- USC

What a fit he would be in Washington. This could be the piece that puts Washington into a contender. His size and stature will make life a nightmare for cornerbacks. With Terry McLaurin by his side, newly acquired QB Carson Wentz will have some weapons he never had with the Colts and Eagles. If the Commanders can pull this off they all of the sudden have one of the best receiving rooms in the NFC East.


  1. Vikings- Kyle Hamilton S- Notre Dame

Versatile safety that can cover so much of the field. Vikings need help on defense and Hamilton is exactly what they need.


  1. Texans- Jermaine Johnson EDGE- Florida State

Pretty surprising he falls this far to be honest. Some mock drafts have him going in the top five. He had a breakout year at Florida State getting 12 sacks. He was also named ACC defensive player of the year


Mock trade- Ravens: 14, 139 for Packer: 22, 53, 2023 2nd round

  1. Packers (via Ravens): Chris Olave WR- Ohio State

With Devonte Adams gone the Packers are desperate to find a wide receiver to replace him. Olave is a perfect receiver to stick with Rodgers. It is a match made in heaven and worth whatever you give up to move up in the draft.


Mock trade- Eagle: 15 for Steelers: 20, 52, 2023 4th round

  1. Steelers- Malik Willis QB- Liberty

This would be a great pick for the Steelers. It might suck missing out on Kenny Pickett but Malik Willis might actually be better for the Steelers. He has the arm and the ability to improvise which will suit him well in the NFL. He will probably need to watch from the sidelines this season but next year watch out. 


  1. Saints- Charles Cross OT- Mississippi State

It is the perfect pick, as the team needs to replace Terron Armstead on the O-line. In my opinion the best pass-blocker in this draft.


  1. Chargers- Trevor Penning OT- Northern Iowa

Just like that the Chargers have one of the better offensive lines in the league. With Rashad Slater and company Justin Herbert will have the protection he needs to excel and put the Chargers in the playoffs.


  1. Eagles- Jordan Davis DT- Georgia

If Davis is still available then the Eagles will be ecstatic. Weighing in at 335 lbs, Davis has freakish athleticism. His ability to impact the game all over the defensive front is what the Eagles need.


  1. Saints- Treylon Burks WR- Arkansas

Just like that another wide receiver is off the board. The Saints need someone to complement Michael Thomas or replace him entirely if he gets injured yet again. So in this case they go with the best receiver left.


Mock trade- Eagle: 15 for Steelers: 20, 52, 2023 4th round

  1. Eagles- Devin Lloyd LB- Utah

The Eagles might want to go cornerback here though nobody really stands out as a great pick here so they go with a safer option in Devin Lloyd.


  1. Patriots- Jahan Dotson WR- Penn State

What a great pick this would be for the Pats. Dotson was outstanding at Penn State and has the best hands in the draft. He fits into Bill Belichick’s system and would be a great addition to Mac Jones’s weapons.


Mock trade- Ravens: 14, 139 for Packer: 22, 53, 132, 2023 4th round

  1. Ravens- David Ojabo EDGE- Michigan

Even though he likely won’t be able to play in 2022 it is still a good pick with aging veterans on the Ravens defensive line.


  1. Cardinals- David Karlaftis EDGE- Purdue

Losing Chandler Jones to free agency sucks, but Karlaftis should be able to fill that hole and bolster the defensive line that the Cardinals already have.


  1. Cowboys- Tyler Linderbaum OC- Iowa

Linderbaum will provide a boost to an offensive line that has become a shell of what was a strength of the Cowboys.


  1. Bills- Kenneth Walker III RB- Michigan State

The Bills need a running back. Pretty simple. When they get one is the big question. I think waiting to get one in the second round would not be wise so they go for one here. They could go Breece Hall though I think they surprise us by going with Walker. Walker had a breakout season at MSU. He will be used to the conditions of Buffalo as well.


  1. Titans- Matt Corral QB- Mississippi

Ryan Tannihill looked awful during crunch time against Cincinnati in the playoffs last year. I’m not sure if he is the future of Tennessee. Now, Corral might not be the answer either though a little competition never hurts.


  1. Buccaneers- Zion Johnson OG- Boston College

To win with Brady you have to protect him. It is as simple as that. This should be an easy pic.


  1. Packers- Boye Mafe EDGE- Minnesota

If the Packers add another dynamic edge rusher then their defense could be a force to be reckoned with. Mafe lit it up at the Senior Bowl this year.


  1. Chiefs- Arnold Ebiketie EDGE- Penn State

The Chiefs need an edge rusher and recently there has been a lot of talk of Ebiketie finding his way into the first round. Ebiketie has consistently been very good for Penn State as it would be great to see him go this early.


Mock trade- Chiefs: 30 for Falcons: 40, 74, 2023 3rd rounder

  1. Falcons- Desmond Ridler QB- Cincinnati

Falcons get a QB for the future here if Marriota does not work out


  1. Bengals- Kyler Gordon CB- Washington

If you saw the Super Bowl then you know that Cincinatti needs a cornerback. Gordon would be exactly what the Bengals are looking for.


  1. Lions- Sam Howell QB- North Carolina

I do not think Jared Goff is the future. Sam Howell could be really really good or he could be a lot like Daniel Jones in mediocre. Lions do not have a lot to lose with this pick.
