  1. NFL Team Logo for Jaguars Jacksonville Jaguars: Tyler Linderbaum, C/G, Iowa

    The Jaguars must protect Trevor Lawrence, which is a big problem because Brandon Linder retired. Jacksonville has to be thrilled to be getting this sort of a prospect atop Round 2.

    Tyler Linderbaum is coming off an amazing year. He can play guard as well, but would be much better at center.

  2. NFL Team Logo for Lions Detroit Lions: Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia

    I can't remember the last time the Lions had consistently great linebacker play. Perhaps they'll use this pick to rectify this issue.

    Nakobe Dean is an athletic and instinctive linebacker.

  3. NFL Team Logo for Jets New York Jets: Breece Hall, RB, Iowa State

    The Jets are a very logical spot for the first running back in this class.

    Breece Hall is a physical runner who has quality receiving skills.



  4. NFL Team Logo for Giants New York Giants: Boye Mafe, DE, Minnesota

    The Giants want an edge rusher very badly. I have to believe that they'd be interested in someone as athletic as this prospect.

    Boye Mafe seems to have a wide range. Some teams believe he could be chosen in the first round, while others believe he's a Day 2 vanilla left end.



  5. NFL Team Logo for Texans Houston Texans: Daxton Hill, S/CB, Michigan

    The Texans already found their cornerback in this mock draft update. Now, they fill the hole at safety.

    Daxton Hill played great as the nickel cornerback this year, but he may move to safety in the NFL. He can be used all over the secondary.



  6. NFL Team Logo for Jets New York Jets: Perrion Winfrey, DT, Oklahoma

    The Jets need help everywhere, and that includes the interior of the defensive line.

    Perrion Winfrey dominated the trenches in 2020, especially late in the season.

  7. NFL Team Logo for Bears Chicago Bears: David Ojabo, DE/OLB, Michigan

    If David Ojabo drops out of the first round, I think this is a perfect spot for him. The Bears know they're not going to be competitive in 2022, by design, so they'll be looking to build for 2023 and beyond. David Ojabo won't be able to play at a high level until 2023, so that matches up with Chicago's strategy. Besides, the Bears need an edge rusher to replace Khalil Mack.

    Ojabo tore his Achilles this spring, but he's expected back in the second half of this upcoming regular season. Many expect him to fall to Round 2, and while that could happen, I could see a Montez Sweat situation playing out where Ojabo is chosen in the 24-32 range.

  8. NFL Team Logo for Seahawks Seattle Seahawks: Sam Howell, QB, North Carolina

    The Seahawks need to find a new franchise quarterback in the wake of trading Russell Wilson. Drew Lock is obviously not the answer.

    Sam Howell threw for 38 touchdowns in 2019, which was a Division I-A record for a freshman. He doesn't have ideal size (6-1, 225), but there's no doubting his throwing ability.

  9. NFL Team Logo for Seahawks Seattle Seahawks: Sam Williams, DE, Ole Miss

    Two pass rushers in three picks is possible. The Seahawks had a severe issue getting to the quarterback last year. Given that they are in a division with Kyler Murray and Matthew Stafford, that must change quickly.

    Sam Williams is very talented, but has character concerns.

  10. NFL Team Logo for Colts Indianapolis Colts: Bernhard Raimann, OT, Central Michigan

    The Colts need a new left tackle, as Eric Fisher was just a temporary solution.

    A former tight end, Bernhard Raimann is an athletic left tackle.

  11. NFL Team Logo for Falcons Atlanta Falcons: Desmond Ridder, QB, Cincinnati

    The Falcons will need a long-term answer at quarterback despite signing Marcus Mariota.

    Desmond Ridder impressed this year. He has shown an improved ability to work through progression, and he's good at using his feet to extend plays.

  12. NFL Team Logo for Browns Cleveland Browns: George Pickens, WR, Georgia

    The Browns acquired Amari Cooper, but Deshaun Watson still needs another receiver.

    George Pickens has nice size (6-3), tremendous athleticism and a wide catch radius. He has some character issues, but nothing egregious.

  13. NFL Team Logo for Ravens Baltimore Ravens: Kyler Gordon, CB, Washington

    The Ravens will have to spend an early pick on a cornerback, given their coverage issues from last year.

    Kyler Gordon is a solid cornerback, though he doesn't get many turnovers.



  14. NFL Team Logo for Vikings Minnesota Vikings: Jaquan Brisker, S, Penn State

    The Vikings will strongly consider Kyle Hamilton if he falls to them at No. 12. If he doesn't, this is a possibility.

    Jaquan Brisker is an instinctive safety with good speed.



  15. NFL Team Logo for Redskins Washington Redskins: Skyy Moore, WR, Western Michigan

    If the Redskins don't use the No. 11 pick on a receiver, there's a good chance they'll take one in the second round.

    Skyy Moore is a speedy receiver with great run-after-catch ability. He thrived at the combine.

  16. NFL Team Logo for Bears Chicago Bears: Wan'Dale Robinson, WR, Kentucky

    The Bears lost Allen Robinson to the Rams, so they have nothing at receiver beyond Darnell Mooney.

    Wan'Dale Robinson has game-breaking speed.

  17. NFL Team Logo for Saints New Orleans Saints: Kenny Pickett, QB, Pittsburgh

    The fall finally ends. It'll be a long 20 or so hours for Kenny Pickett, who has no buzz from any team. Charlie and I have reached out to numerous teams, and none of them like Pickett for a variety of reasons. We don't speak to every team, so Pickett could be chosen in the first round, but one team with a quarterback need told us that they have him behind Malik Willis, Sam Howell and Matt Corral!

    The Saints could consider Pickett in the second round after passing on him twice. They may just see enough value with Pickett that he would end up being the pick at No. 37.

    Pickett is an accurate passer with nice size. He was on fire in 2021. However, he's just a middling first-round quarterback prospect, and his small hands might scare the cold-weather teams.



  18. NFL Team Logo for Chiefs Kansas City Chiefs: Devonte Wyatt, DT, Georgia

    DeVonte Wyatt has nice quickness despite his 315-pound frame. However, some teams have removed him from their board due to repeated domestic violence, per a Charlie Campbell report in the NFL Hot Press. His slide could stop here, as Andy Reid has taken chances on troubled players in the past.



  19. NFL Team Logo for Eagles Philadelphia Eagles: Christian Harris, LB, Alabama

    Many expect the Eagles to address the linebacker position at Nos. 15 or 18. That could happen, but given the team's history of eschewing linebackers in the first round, I think it's more likely that they obtain an answer at the position in the second frame.

  20. NFL Team Logo for Steelers Pittsburgh Steelers: DeMarvin Leal, DE/DT, Texas A&M

    Cameron Heyward, Stephon Tuitt and Tyson Alualu will be 34, 29 and 35, respectively, prior to the start of the 2022 season. Pittsburgh must get younger up front. DeMarvin Leal was dominant to close out the 2020 campaign, so he had lots of promise heading into 2021. He ended up recording 8.5 sacks.



  21. NFL Team Logo for Packers Green Bay Packers: Travis Jones, NT, Connecticut

    The Packers have struggled to stop the run in recent years, so perhaps they'll do something about it early in the 2022 NFL Draft.

  22. NFL Team Logo for Patriots New England Patriots: Alontae Taylor, CB/S, Tennessee

    The Patriots could use some youth in their secondary, and Bill Belichick is always down for obtaining versatile players.

    The speedy Alontae Taylor has put together some great tape as a corner in the SEC. He can also play safety.

  23. NFL Team Logo for Cardinals Arizona Cardinals: Nik Bonitto, DE/OLB, Oklahoma

    The Cardinals lost Chandler Jones this offseason, so they'll likely spend a second-day pick on an edge rusher.

    Nik Bonitto is a tweener, but can serve as an edge-rushing specialist in a 3-4 system.

  24. NFL Team Logo for Cowboys Dallas Cowboys: Ed Ingram, G, LSU

    It would be a huge surprise if the Cowboys didn't address their hole at guard in the first two rounds.

    Ed Ingram is a tough run blocker who has displayed some athleticism.



  25. NFL Team Logo for Bills Buffalo Bills: Kenneth Walker, RB, Michigan State

    The Bills will be looking for a new running back to pair with Devin Singletary.

    Kenneth Walker is a tough back who runs with great balance.

  26. NFL Team Logo for Falcons Atlanta Falcons: Jalen Tolbert, WR, South Alabama

    The Falcons have nothing at receiver, so they'll need to address the position early in the 2022 NFL Draft.

    Jalen Tolbert has shown some big-play ability, but level of competition is obviously a question mark.

  27. NFL Team Logo for Packers Green Bay Packers: Alec Pierce, WR, Cincinnati

    The Packers almost have to spend two of their first four selections on receivers in the wake of Davante Adams' departure. Almost.

    The 6-3 Alec Pierce has a great size and speed combination.

  28. NFL Team Logo for Buccaneers Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Cam Taylor-Britt, CB, Nebraska

    The Buccaneers could stand to get deeper at cornerback, especially with Jamel Dean's contract expiring soon.



  29. NFL Team Logo for 49ers San Francisco 49ers: Josh Paschal, DE, Kentucky

    It's been reported that Dee Ford won't return in 2022, so the 49ers will need another edge rusher.

    Josh Paschal is stout as a run defender, and he can also get some pressure on the quarterback.

  30. NFL Team Logo for Chiefs Kansas City Chiefs: Drake Jackson, DE, USC

    The Chiefs need another edge rusher, especially with all the talented quarterbacks suddenly in the AFC.



  31. NFL Team Logo for Bengals Cincinnati Bengals: Cam Jurgens, C, Nebraska

    The Bengals did a great job of upgrading their offensive line this offseason, but they're still looking for a starting center.

    Cam Jurgens had an outstanding pro day workout to bolster his draft stock.

  32. NFL Team Logo for Broncos Denver Broncos: Chad Muma, LB, Wyoming

    The Broncos lost some linebacker talent this offseason, so they're expected to address this position early this weekend.

    Chad Muma displayed superior athleticism at the combine.
