Michigan

• Sr

• 6’6″

/ 265 lbs

Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

7th

POSITION RNK

3rd

How about Hutchinson at No. 1? He has an NFL body, is believed to be a freak athletically, and has had massive production at Michigan.

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’7″

/ 350 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

7th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Neal isn’t a perfect prospect, but he’s the position the Jets absolutely need for the future of their organization.

Notre Dame

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 219 lbs

Projected Team

Jacksonville

PROSPECT RNK

1st

POSITION RNK

1st

The Jaguars would probably be primed to trade down if this is how the board falls, but Hamilton is a supremely gifted back-seven player.

Pittsburgh

• Sr

• 6’3″

/ 220 lbs

Projected Team

Houston

PROSPECT RNK

15th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Let’s get a little crazy here. Some would think Pickett doesn’t have much more of a higher ceiling than Davis Mills, but he’s much more careful with the football and has better and more natural improvisational skills.

Liberty

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 195 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

30th

POSITION RNK

3rd

What the Giants need to do for 2022 is sign an established veteran, then address the quarterback position early in the draft. Willis is raw but has All-Pro upside.

Oregon

• Soph

• 6’5″

/ 258 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Jets

PROSPECT RNK

2nd

POSITION RNK

1st

The Jets have a strong defensive front — especially when you factor in Carl Lawson’s 2022 return — but this is a dream scenario for Robert Saleh.

NC State

• Soph

• 6’4″

/ 320 lbs

Projected Team

N.Y. Giants

PROSPECT RNK

12th

POSITION RNK

1st

New quarterback and a new left tackle with the strength and athleticism to hit the ground running. Perfect for the start of the Giants’ rebuild.

LSU

• Jr

• 6’1″

/ 195 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

3rd

POSITION RNK

1st

The Eagles can address the offense and defensive front later in Round 1. Stingley is a blue-chip prospect falling into their lap here. Can’t pass on him.

Texas A&M

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 325 lbs

Projected Team

Atlanta

PROSPECT RNK

10th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Falcons need…a lot, and with two quarterbacks off the board they decide on an established SEC blocker to build the talent on the offensive line.

Ohio State

• Sr

• 6’1″

/ 188 lbs

Projected Team

Washington

PROSPECT RNK

8th

POSITION RNK

1st

Does the Washington Football Team really need a quarterback desperately? If Taylor Heinicke plays like he did in Week 11, it may not. Instead the team gets him another refined weapon to pair with Terry McLaurin.

Purdue

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 275 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

6th

POSITION RNK

2nd

The Eagles have to add to their defensive front, and Karlaftis has serious abilities as a three-down edge rusher.

Ole Miss

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 205 lbs

Projected Team

Carolina

PROSPECT RNK

10th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Panthers are building…something under Matt Rhule, but this club will never take off unless it gets its long-term answer at quarterback. Cam Newton can be the perfect mentor for Corral and will allow him to sit for a while before starting.

South Carolina

• Sr

• 6’4″

/ 260 lbs

Projected Team

Denver

PROSPECT RNK

21st

POSITION RNK

2nd

Enagbare needs to add to his pass-rush move arsenal, but the athleticism profile is absolutely top-half-of-the-first-round quality.

Iowa

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 290 lbs

Projected Team

Miami

PROSPECT RNK

24th

POSITION RNK

6th

I keep going back to this pairing. The Dolphins have to get nastier up front, and Linderbaum does not play around.

Ohio State

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 192 lbs

Projected Team

Las Vegas

PROSPECT RNK

8th

POSITION RNK

1st

More receiver help for Derek Carr in Vegas. Wilson is a springy speedster with a complete game.

Georgia

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 225 lbs

Projected Team

Philadelphia

PROSPECT RNK

27th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Howie Roseman has a long history of waiting on linebacker, so how about not picking the super-talented Dean until his third first-round pick?

Alabama

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 189 lbs

Projected Team

Cleveland

PROSPECT RNK

13th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Williams is going in the first round. And regardless of what the Browns decide to do at quarterback, the receiver spot has to be addressed.

Florida

• Jr

• 6’2″

/ 196 lbs

Projected Team

Pittsburgh

PROSPECT RNK

26th

POSITION RNK

4th

The Steelers secondary has to get younger on the perimeter, and Elam has the press-man skills that’ll be welcomed in Pittsburgh.

Arkansas

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 225 lbs

Projected Team

New Orleans

PROSPECT RNK

22nd

POSITION RNK

4th

Did you see Burks against Alabama? Grown man. Burks will acclimate quickly as a big slot in Sean Payton’s offense.

Clemson

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 200 lbs

Projected Team

Minnesota

PROSPECT RNK

11th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Booth is a natural playmaker who’d make perfect sense in Mike Zimmer’s scheme.

Ohio State

• Sr

• 6’6″

/ 321 lbs

Projected Team

Buffalo

PROSPECT RNK

52nd

POSITION RNK

9th

Munford has tackle/guard versatility and a complete game to be a rookie starter in Buffalo.

USC

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 210 lbs

London stays home in Los Angeles and will be another target with a large catch radius for Justin Herbert.

Mississippi State

• Soph

• 6’5″

/ 310 lbs

Projected Team

Cincinnati

PROSPECT RNK

29th

POSITION RNK

5th

Cross is young and somewhat raw, but his play this season has led to legitimate first-round consideration. More protection for Joe Burrow.

Penn State

• Sr

• 5’11”

/ 184 lbs

Projected Team

Detroit

PROSPECT RNK

18th

POSITION RNK

3rd

Dotson would provide the Lions with what they desperately need: a dynamic weapon at wideout. He can win at all three levels.

Texas A&M

• Jr

• 6’4″

/ 290 lbs

Projected Team

Kansas City

PROSPECT RNK

9th

POSITION RNK

1st

The Chiefs simply can’t pass on someone as talented as Leal this late in Round 1. He’s a disruptor regardless of where he aligns.

Penn State

• Sr

• 6’3″

/ 256 lbs

Projected Team

New England

PROSPECT RNK

37th

POSITION RNK

7th

Ebiketie is going to fly up boards over the next few months. He’s a chiseled specimen who’s produced at a high level this season.

Texas A&M

• Jr

• 6’5″

/ 255 lbs

Projected Team

Dallas

PROSPECT RNK

44th

POSITION RNK

1st

Another pass-catching option for Dak Prescott. Wydermyer has been super-reliable for the Aggies over the past two seasons.

Georgia

• Sr

• 6’0″

/ 190 lbs

Projected Team

Tampa Bay

PROSPECT RNK

14th

POSITION RNK

1st

More youthful investment in the secondary for the Buccaneers with the pro-ready Kendrick.

Washington

• Soph

• 5’11”

/ 195 lbs

Projected Team

Baltimore

PROSPECT RNK

50th

POSITION RNK

3rd

McDuffie’s versatility makes him the ideal fit in Baltimore’s blitz-happy defense.

Utah

• Jr

• 6’3″

/ 235 lbs

Projected Team

Green Bay

PROSPECT RNK

19th

POSITION RNK

2nd

Lloyd could sneak into the first round because of his range, tackling prowess, and coverage ability.

Central Michigan

• Jr

• 6’7″

/ 305 lbs

Projected Team

Tennessee

PROSPECT RNK

37th

POSITION RNK

7th

The Titans look for another young blocker in Round 1. In Raimann they get a highly athletic blocker with major potential.

Michigan

• Jr

• 6’0″

/ 192 lbs

Projected Team

Arizona

PROSPECT RNK

25th

POSITION RNK

2nd

The Cardinals seem to prioritize versatility on defense and Hill makes plays at safety, outside corner, or in the slot.
