2022 NFL Mock Draft: Kayvan Thibodaux, Aidan Hutchinson picked by crowd-needed teams

With the regular season in the books, it’s time to start looking toward the off-season and most importantly, the NFL Draft. All teams that miss the playoffs have fixed draft positions, starting with the Jaguars at the top of the 2022 NFL Draft.

This draft class is quite different from the 2021 NFL draft class. There is a dearth of quarterback talent compared to last season, but teams looking for an impressive lineman have plenty of options toward the top of the draft.

This class may not have super elite talent like Miles Garrett or Kyle Pitts, but there are plenty of potential players who should play at Pro Bowl level early in their careers.

Let’s first speculate on what might happen in April (note: the order for the playoff teams hasn’t been determined yet, so hat tip to the tankathon).

The Jaguars get Kayvon Thibodeaux, who is just scratching the surface at how impressive he can be. Thibodaux can be an explosive, versatile addition to the Jaguar’s defensive line. He would be an ideal building block for a new staff.

This Falcons regime has shown that they don’t really care about traditional positional value, so there is a security in the top-10 in a year after a tight end in the top five. Kyle Hamilton is the best player on the board and will give the Falcons a young, extremely talented secondary pairing with AJ Terrell.

The Jets get another stud tackle to help protect Zach Wilson. Charles Cross can play left or right tackle in the NFL, giving the Jets two first-round tackles on their rebuilt offensive line. When it’s all said and done it’s the reverse of the cross to have the best tackle in the draft.

Demarvin Leal is a raw player who needs to work on his technique, but he has all the tools to become an explosive, penetrating defensive lineman. He can play in or out, depending on how his team wants to position him.

Patriots roll a dice here. Jameson Williams is one of the most explosive players in the draft, but tore his ACL in the national championship game. He will provide momentum when the Patriots are widely missing out on recovering.

The Cardinals love to draft versatile players in the recent draft and Travan Walker fits that bill. Walker played for Georgia’s defense from nose tackles to edge rushers. He is a physical player who should be able to find a role along the Cardinals defensive line.

Falling into Devin Lloyd’s lap gives the Bengals a good value here. Lloyd would add a huge boost of speed and playmaking to a defense that would have to play four times a year against Nick Chubb and Lamar Jackson.

Antonio Brown out, Jahan Dotson in. A wide receiver with isolation skills like Dotson is a good fit for Tom Brady and it would make sense if they lost Chris Godwin to free agency.
