2022 NFL Mock Draft 2.0
By Eddie Sebastian
The regular season came to a close a couple of weeks ago when the Rams defeated the Bengals 23-20 in Super Bowl LVI, and I won $300 in the football squares. But I owed the guy running it $250.00, so easy come easy go.
All the talking heads are talking about free agency, the draft combine, and mock drafts. So a couple of days ago, Todd McShay of ESPN came out with his Mock Draft 2.0. So let’s take a look at the first round of top offensive players who might impact fantasy football in their rookie season.
At #8, he has the Falcons selecting WR Drake London from USC. The dirty birds need a top-flight receiver to complement tight end, Kyle Pitts. And their primary weapon, Calvin Ridley, left the team last year due to mental illness.
At #11, the Washington Commanders select QB Kenny Pickett from Pittsburgh. So they have a new name, new uniforms, and now have their quarterback of the future.
At #13, the Cleveland Browns select WR Garrett Wilson from the Ohio St. The Browns released Odell Beckham Jr. last year, and it seems like Jarvis Landry wants out, so Wilson would become their new #1 option at wide receiver.
At #17, the Pittsburgh Steelers select QB Malik Wilson of Liberty. Big Ben Roethlisberger just retired, and Mason Rudolph is a career backup QB.
At #18, the New Orleans Saints select QB Matt Corral of Ole Miss. If they don’t find a starting QB in free agency, Matt is your guy.
At #19, the Philadelphia Eagles sect WR Treylon Burks of Arkansas. For the third year in a row, the Eagles’ have taken a wide receiver in the first round.
At #22, the Las Vegas Raiders select WR BIG Play Chris Olave of the Ohio St. The Raiders need a replacement for Henry Ruggs.
At #27, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select WR Jameson Williams of Alabama. Jameson transferred from the Ohio St. because he couldn’t get any playing time behind #13 and #22.
At #30, The Kansas City Chiefs select WR Jahan Dotson of Penn St. Another weapon for Patrick Mahomes.
At #32, the Detroit Lions select QB Sam Howell of North Carolina because Jared Goff sucks. I think it’s safe to say that the Rams got the better end of the Matthew Stafford trade.
No quarterbacks were drafted in the Top-10. Only ten offensive players were drafted in the first round. There were six wide receivers and four quarterbacks, and surprisingly, there were no running backs or tight ends taken. And that’s the toddfathers first-round mock draft 2.0
