With 32 selections in the books, our interest has now changed Friday night and Day 2 of the 2022 NFL Draft, with many eyes on quarterbacks.
Pitt’s Kenny Pickett was the only quarterback to be drafted in the first round, leaving a few hopes beyond finding a home in Rounds 2 and 3. For the first time since 2007, there is a good chance we have more quarterbacks drafted in the second round than in the first round.
33. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Logan Hall, DL, Houston
Ride player, Hall offers Tampa inside-out flexibility on the defensive line.
34. Minnesota Vikings: Kyler Gordon, CB, Washington
After adding Lewis Cine in the first round, the Vikings are continuing to re-create high school with Gordon.
35. Tennessee Titans: Desmond Ridder, QB, Cincinnati
Ridder is a runner who can be trained behind Ryan Tannehill (Mike Vrabel-Luke Fickell’s connection doesn’t hurt).
36. New York Giants: Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia
The Giants added a corner kick in the first half and could add a third to Dean.
37. Houston Texans: Breece Hall, RB, Iowa State
The Texans have shown as much interest in the Hall as possible after the offense.
38. New York Jets: Jalen Pitre, S, Baylor
The Jets already lifted second with Sauce Gardner and could look to increase security on Day 2.
39. Chicago Bears: George Pickens, WR, Georgia
Despite having a few red flags, Pickens has the potential to be Justin Fields’ WR1.
40. Seattle Seahawks: Malik Willis, QB, Liberty
Seattle are in a good position to score a quarter with one of the next two options, and Willis is still on the board.
41. Seattle Seahawks: Arnold Ebikitie, Edge, Penn State
Ebhethie has the nerves and length that would impress Seahawks voters.
42. Indianapolis Colts: Skyy Moore, WR, Western Michigan
One of my favorite on Day 2 will be a collaboration with Moore and Michael Pittman in Indianapolis.
43. Atlanta Falcons: Matt Corral, QB, Ole Miss
It will be interesting to see if the price of one of these quarterbacks is too good for the Falcons to pass.
44. Cleveland Browns: Drake Jackson, Edge, USC
A young player with distracting habits, Jackson looks at a lot of boxes with Brown.
45. Baltimore Ravens: Travis Jones, DT, Connecticut
After missing Jordan Davis for the first time, the Ravens are in for a rude awakening.
46. Detroit Offices: Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson
Injured Dangers lowered the Booth so far, but the lions stopped its descent.
47. Washington Commanders: Sam Howell, QB, North Carolina
Washington is ready to ride the Carson Wentz roller coaster, but Howell gives the organization a long-term plan.
48. Chicago Bears: Perrion Winfrey, DT, Oklahoma
Winfrey gives the Bears an inner turmoil that they have been exploring this game season.
49. New Orleans Saints: Jaquan Brisker, S, Penn State
Brisker will be the last as the Saints revise their depth security chart.
50. Kansas City Chiefs: David Ojabo, Edge, Michigan
The Chiefs have already made George Karlaftis in the first half, but the price of Ojabo, who will need a red carpet as a rookie, is too good to keep.
51. Philadelphia Eagles: Christian Harris, LB, Alabama
Top runner-up, Harris has the speed and coverage ability that would impress the Eagles.
52. Pittsburgh Steelers: Bernhard Raimann, OT / G, Central Michigan
The Steelers got their quarterback, and now they have to protect him by adding more pieces to the offensive line.
53. Green Bay Packers: Boye Mafe, Edge, Minnesota
Three selections, three forward seven Packers, who are in the race.
54. New England Patriots: Leo Chenal, LB, Wisconsin
With its size and history of competition, Chenal fits in with the Patriots’ ambitions for the linebacker.
55. Arizona Cardinals: Roger McCreary, CB, Auburn
McCreary may not be the right height, but he can play indoors or out, which is exactly what the Cardinals need on the pitch.
56. Dallas Cowboys: Sam Williams, Edge, Ole Miss
As was the case with Tyler Smith on the first line, some may see this as an approach, but Dallas sticks to his writing board.
57. Buffalo Bills: Kenneth Walker III, RB, Michigan State
The bill provided a test of readiness to return to the first phase and remain one of the best ever written.
58. Atlanta Falcons: Troy Andersen, LB, Montana State
Andersen is a special runner and the kind of bond that the Falcons need to focus on rebuilding.
59. Green Bay Packers: Christian Watson, WR, North Dakota State
After defense, defense, defense and their first three choices, the Packers finally found a tool to help.
60. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Trey McBride, TE, Colorado State
Regardless of whether Rob Gronkowski wants to return, McBride could give Tampa and Tom Brady another weapon in transit games.
61. San Francisco 49ers: Cam Jurgens, OG / C, Nebraska
With its history of speed and consistency, Jurgens is the central hope for the good of the Niners system.
62. Kansas City Chiefs: John Metchie, WR, Alabama
The Chiefs have done heavy defense so far, but Metchie is a reliable receiver who can actively connect with Patrick Mahomes.
63. Cincinnati Bengals: Josh Paschal, DL, Kentucky
The Bengals will be looking to raise the defensive line at some point, and Paschal offers internal flexibility.
64. Denver Broncos: Chad Muma, LB, Wyoming
With its clever combination and speed, Muma is a rival machine that sees the field very quickly as a starter.
65. Jacksonville Jaguars: Cam Taylor-Britt, CB, Nebraska
66. Minnesota Vikings: Nik Bonitto, Edge, Oklahoma
67. New York Giants: Dylan Parham, OG / C, Memphis
68. Houston Texans: Nicholas Petit-Frere, OT, Ohio State
69. Tennessee Titans: Jamaree Salyer, OG, Georgia
70. Jacksonville Jaguars: Luke Goedeke, OG / C, Central Michigan
71. Chicago Bears: Darian Kinnard, OT / G, Kentucky
72. Seattle Seahawks: Tariq Woolen, CB, UTSA
73. Indianapolis Colts: Zyon McCollum, CB, Sam Houston State
74. Atlanta Falcons: Cameron Thomas, DL, San Diego State
75. Denver Broncos: Greg Dulcich, TE, UCLA
76. Baltimore Ravens: Daniel Faalele, OT, Minnesota
77. Minnesota Vikings: Jalen Tolbert, WR, South Alabama
78. Cleveland Browns: Alec Pierce, WR, Cincinnati
79. Los Angeles Charger: Abraham Lucas, OT, Washington State
80. Houston Texans: Nick Cross, S, Maryland
81. New York Giants: Joshua Williams, CB, Fayetteville State
82. Atlanta Falcons: Isaiah Spiller, RB, Texas A&M
83. Philadelphia Eagles: Kingsley Enagbare, Edge, South Carolina
84. Pittsburgh Steelers: Phidarian Mathis, DT, Alabama
85. New England Patriots: Damarri Mathis, CB, Pittsburgh
86. Las Vegas Raiders: Coby Bryant, CB, Cincinnati
87. Arizona Cardinals: DeAngelo Malone, Edge, Western Kentucky
88. Dallas Cowboys: Jeremy Ruckert, TE, Ohio State
89. Buffalo Funds: Calvin Austin III, WR, Memphis
90. Tennessee Titans: Myjai Sanders, Edge, Cincinnati
91. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Luke Fortner, OG / C, Kentucky
92. Green Bay Packers: Joshua Ezeudu, OT / G, North Carolina
93. San Francisco 49ers: DeMarvin Leal, DT, Texas A&M
94. New England Patriots: Khalil Shakir, WR, Boise State
95. Cincinnati Bengals: Jelani Woods, TE, Oklahoma State
96. Denver Broncos: Akayleb Evans, CB, Missouri
