It is time for the 2022 NFL Mock Draft 2.0
With that comes a lot of movement around the board, and one player specifically making waves as of late.
So, let us dive in!!
To see what the 2022 NFL Mock Draft 1.0 looked like, CLICK HERE
Jeff Hoak 2022 NFL Mock Draft 2.0
1. Jacksonville Jaguars select OT, Evan Neal out of Alabama
Jacksonville needs to replace Brandon Linder, Evan Neal would be an outstanding pick! Even if he isn’t a center, he can play the line well, and they can plug and play for center.
This pick just feels right!!
2. Detroit Lions select DE, Aiden Hutchinson out of Michigan
Lions bring in the Michigan product to bolster their D-Line.
3. Houston Texans select Kayvon Thibedeuex out of Oregon
Houston gets their guy in hopes he can be the next JJ Watt.
4. New York Jets select S, Kyle Hamilton out of Notre Dame
Nothing changes here, Kyle Hamilton to the Jets seems like a lock if he lands at 4.
5. New York Giants select DT, Travon Walker, Georgia
The big mover in this 2022 NFL Mock Draft is Travon Walker who has been getting rave reviews and is climbing up a lot of Draft Board. Giants would be wise to draft him.
6. Carolina Panther select QB, Kenny Pickett out of Pittsburgh
Matt Rhule loves Pickett, this pick seems like a match made in heaven.
7. New York Giants (via Chicago) select CB, Sauce Gardner out of Cincinnati
From D-Line to Secondary, the Giants land one of the top Corners in hopes to bolster their secondary.
8. Atlanta Falcons select QB, Malik Willis out of Liberty
No change, seems like Atlanta wants to go QB now that Matt Ryan is gone, Malik Willis would slot right into that spot.
9. Seattle Seahawks (via Denver) select OT, Icky Ekwonu out of NC State
Whoever the QB ends up needing to be protected, and Icky is one of the best and would fill a major need for the Seahawks
10. New York Jets (via Seattle) select CB, Derek Stingley Jr. out of LSU
The other team out of Metlife Stadium really goes all-in on secondary, this time going for a top-flight cornerback to go along with Kyle Hamilton.
11. Washington Commanders select WR, Drake London out of USC
Washington got their QB in Carson Wentz, now it is time to get him another weapon on the other side of Scary Terry, Drake London is that guy and could be a big piece to a rebuilding Washington
12. Minnesota Vikings select C, Tyler Linderbaum out of Iowa
Protecting Kirk Cousins should be a top priority for the Vikings, and Tyler Linderbaum can do just that.
13. Houston Texans (via Cleveland) select DE, George Karlaftis out of Purdue
As I said, a lot of needs for Houston, so they will now shift their focus to the defense, and Karlaftis is just the guy that can help build your defense around.
14. Baltimore Ravens select DL, Jermaine Johnson II out of Florida State
Baltimore bolsters their D-Line with a tremendous pickup in Jermaine Johnson.
15. Philadelphia Eagles (via Miami) select WR, Chris Olave out of The Ohio State
Jalen Reagor has been an absolute bust of a pick (reminder, he was taken a pick before Justin Jefferson) so, the Eagles are going to run it back with one of the best receivers in the draft in Chris Olave.
Olave will be able to help stretch the field and allow Hurts some more options to throw too.
16. New Orleans (Via Philly) select QB, Desmond Ridder out of Cincinnati
New Orleans traded with the Eagles to move up to pick 16 in what seems like a move in hopes a QB they want will be there.
In this scenario, it is Desmond Ridder who is a sneaky and surprising pick in this spot.
17. Los Angeles Chargers select OT, Charles Cross out of Mississippi State
Chargers bolster their O-Line with a good young piece in Charles Cross who can protect Justin Herber for years to come.
18. Philadelphia Eagles (Via NOLA) select DL, Jordan Davis out of Georgia
They re-signed Fletcher Cox, but will need a young stud ready to go once he retires, and who better to do that than a versatile, Jordan Davis.
19. New Orleans Saints (Via Philly) select WR, Garrett Wilson out of The Ohio State
Get new QB Desmond Ridder a new weapon to pair with Michael Thomas? WHY NOT!
20. Pittsburgh Steelers select QB, Matt Corral out of Ole Miss
Same pick, and it seems to be gaining steam by the day, it just feels like one way or another the Steelers will take a QB in round 1 of the 2022 NFL Draft.
21. New England Patriots select WR, Jameson Williams out of Alabama
They traded for DeVante Parker, but it just feels like if Williams is at this pick that the Patriots will pull the trigger. Getting Mac Jones yet another weapon in an absolutely loaded AFC.
22. Green Bay Packers (via Las Vegas) select WR, Treylon Burks out of Arkansas
No change here, Green Bay gets their new WR for Aaron Rodgers after losing Devante Adams
23. Arizona Cardinals select CB, Trent McDuffie out of Washington
Cornerback is the need for Arizona, and McDuffie is the best available at this spot.
24. Dallas Cowboys select OT, Trevor Penning out of Northern Iowa
Need to bolster the o-line after losing La’el Collins, Trevor Penning is by no means a sexy name, but he can be a damn goof on the Cowboys
25. Buffalo Bills select CB, Kair Elam out of Florida
Elam on the other side of Tredavious White could be a deadly secondary to what is already a stacked Bills defense. It would also help them in the case that is now a two-headed monster of Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.
26. Tennessee Titans select OL, Kenyon Green out of Texas A&M
Had the Titans going wide receiver in the 2022 NFL Mock Draft 1.0, but after re-assessing, and the trade for Robert Woods, we will shift our focus to O-Line who will protect aging QB, Ryan Tannehill
27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers select OT, Zion Johnson out of Boston College
Brady retired, then came back, but the team also lost Alex Cappa and lost pro bowl center Ali Marpet, so, they need to do some work on the o-line, that is where Zion Johnson comes in, an underrated player you do not hear much about out of Boston College who can help piece back together this O-line.
28. Green Bay Packers select OT, Tyler Smith out of Tulsa
Packers could use some help to bolster the O-Line, Tyler Smith is a good choice to help protect the multi-million dollar, Aaron Rodgers
29. Kansas City Chiefs (via Miami) select CB, Roger McCreary out of Auburn
Another CB needy team, luckily it is a deep class for that, and Roger McCreary would slide in very well with that Chiefs team.
30. Kansas City Chiefs select WR, Skyy Moore, out of Western Michigan
With Jameson Williams going earlier, Skyy Moore is a speedy and sneaky pick that could be dangerous with this Chiefs team.
31. Cincinnati Bengals select DE, Boye Mafe out of Minnesota
Originally my play was to go offensive line with this pick, but, Cincy did more than enough in Free Agency to bolster that. So, we will look to the defense, and Edge rusher Boye Mafe. Not a household name at all, but he certainly has the numbers to be a sneaky back-end first-rounder.
32. Detroit Lions (via Los Angeles Rams) select QB, Sam Howell out of UNC
Nothing new, new QB here in Sam Howell who matches Jared Goff a little better as Howell will now learn from him before taking the ropes.
Stay tuned for my 2022 NFL Mock Draft 3.0 coming out in a couple of weeks!
