Last update: Friday, April 29, 2022.
This is a 2022 NFL Mock Re-Draft of Rounds 2 and 3 for Friday evening's NFL Draft coverage. With all of the trades that will go down, I don't expect to get many of these right (I nailed eight in my Re-Draft Rounds 2-3 in 2018), but it's still fun to speculate where the top prospects will go on Day 2 of the 2022 NFL Draft.

2022 NBA Mock Draft - June 23
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Logan Hall, DE/DT, Houston
The Buccaneers lost Jordan Whitehead in free agency. They signed Logan Ryan, but he's just a short-term solution. They could go with Daxton Hill here, but I wonder if they would want to plug their hole on the defensive line instead. They don't have anything there outside of Vita Vea at the moment.
Logan Hall is a long, athletic pass rusher who has enjoyed a great 2021 campaign.

Minnesota Vikings: Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson
The Vikings will need cornerback help so they can cover Jameson Williams, whom they just gift wrapped to the Lions for some reason.
Tennessee Titans: Ed Ingram, G, LSU
The Titans need a guard to replace the departed Rodger Saffold.
Ed Ingram is a tough run blocker who has displayed some athleticism.
New York Giants: Kyler Gordon, CB, Washington
The Giants wanted to pair their tackle of choice with Derek Stingley, but the Texans ruined everything by choosing him No. 3 overall. The Giants can get their corner with this pick.
Houston Texans: Skyy Moore, WR, Western Michigan
The Texans will need a new No. 2 receiver to pair with the recently re-signed Brandin Cooks.
New York Jets: Breece Hall, RB, Iowa State
I thought the Jets traded up to No. 26 for Breece Hall. Jermaine Johnson was the better option, but Hall makes a lot of sense with this choice.
Breece Hall is a physical runner who has quality receiving skills.
Chicago Bears: David Ojabo, DE/OLB, Michigan
I think this is a perfect spot for David Ojabo. 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.
Seattle Seahawks: Malik Willis, QB, Liberty
The Seahawks need to find a new franchise quarterback in the wake of trading Russell Wilson. Drew Lock is obviously not the answer. Malik Willis is a steal at No. 40!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Baltimore Ravens: Wan'Dale Robinson, WR, Kentucky
The Ravens shockingly traded Marquise Brown, so they'll need another dynamic receiver to take his place.
Wan'Dale Robinson has game-breaking speed.
Detroit Lions: Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia
I still can't believe the Lions obtained this pick in the Jameson Williams trade. They can use it to help their poor linebacker situation.
Washington Redskins: Jaquan Brisker, S, Penn State
The Redskins could have used the No. 11 pick on Kyle Hamilton. They'll need to find another new safety at this spot.
Jaquan Brisker is an instinctive safety with good speed.
Chicago Bears: Jalen Tolbert, WR, South Alabama
The Bears lost Allen Robinson to the Rams, so they have nothing at receiver beyond Darnell Mooney.
Jalen Tolbert has shown some big-play ability, but level of competition is obviously a question mark.
New Orleans Saints: Sam Howell, QB, North Carolina
The Saints weren't going to pick a quarterback in the first round, but they could definitely address the position on Day 2.
Kansas City Chiefs: Christian Watson, WR, North Dakota State
The Chiefs acquired this pick in the Tyreek Hill trade (go here for my NFL Trade Grades.) They have many selections, so they could move up for a better receiver.
Christian Watson has a massive 6-4 frame and looked great at the Senior Bowl.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Dallas Cowboys: Boye Mafe, DE, Minnesota
The Cowboys will need to replace Randy Gregory at some point.
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.
Atlanta Falcons: Arnold Ebiketie, DE/OLB, Penn State
The Falcons logged just 18 sacks last year, so they need to bolster their horrible pass rush.
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.
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.
San Francisco 49ers: Drake Jackson, DE, USC
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.
Kansas City Chiefs: Perrion Winfrey, DT, Oklahoma
The Chiefs need more than just George Karlaftis to bolster their defensive line.
Perrion Winfrey dominated the trenches in 2020, especially late in the season.
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.
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.
