Houston
PROSPECT RNK
1st
POSITION RNK
1st

Thibodeaux went superhero against California last week with 11 pressures on 22 pass-rushing snaps. The only way he doesn't go No. 1 is if the Jaguars land the first pick.

Round 1 - Pick 3

Michigan • Sr • 6'6" / 265 lbs

Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
21st
POSITION RNK
3rd

Hutchinson is having an enormous final season at Michigan and was No. 1 on Bruce Feldman's Freak's List that was published in the summer. He's going to be selected very high in late April.

Round 1 - Pick 4

Notre Dame • Jr • 6'4" / 219 lbs

Projected Team
N.Y. Jets
PROSPECT RNK
3rd
POSITION RNK
1st

Hamilton is a freaky, do-it-all prospect who can play anywhere in the back seven and create big plays for the defense.

Round 1 - Pick 5

Liberty • Jr • 6'1" / 195 lbs

Projected Team
N.Y. Giants
PROSPECT RNK
29th
POSITION RNK
5th

The way it's trending now, the Giants will probably have a new GM and QB next year. Willis is raw but has major upside.

Texas A&M • Jr • 6'4" / 290 lbs

Projected Team
Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK
8th
POSITION RNK
1st

Leal and Javon Hargrave will create a seriously disruptive interior of the defensive line in Philadelphia.

Round 1 - Pick 7

Ole Miss • Jr • 6'2" / 205 lbs

Projected Team
Washington
PROSPECT RNK
77th
POSITION RNK
6th

Corral has the athleticism and arm to land early in Round 1, and while he can be overaggressive at times, he's pretty accurate too. Washington has to address the quarterback spot.

Round 1 - Pick 8

LSU • Jr • 6'1" / 195 lbs

Projected Team
N.Y. Giants
PROSPECT RNK
2nd
POSITION RNK
1st

Stingley has been penciled into the top 10 for years now. He and James Bradberry would be the longest outside cornerback tandem in the NFL. And quite talented.

Round 1 - Pick 9

Ohio State • Jr • 6'0" / 192 lbs

Projected Team
Atlanta
PROSPECT RNK
7th
POSITION RNK
1st

How about more offensive weaponry in Atlanta. Why the hell not? Matt Ryan's probably playing in his final season with the Falcons in 2022, so Wilson will help him make the most of it.

Round 1 - Pick 10

Florida • Jr • 6'2" / 196 lbs

Projected Team
Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK
19th
POSITION RNK
4th

Elam is a lengthy, athletic, super-physical cornerback who'd help to round out the Eagles secondary.

Ohio State • Sr • 6'1" / 188 lbs

Projected Team
Carolina
PROSPECT RNK
13th
POSITION RNK
2nd

The Panthers have to get more dynamic in their receiver room. Olave isn't close to the freakiest first-round receiver over the past few years, but he's one of the most polished route runners with high-end ball skills.

Round 1 - Pick 12

Iowa • Jr • 6'3" / 290 lbs

Projected Team
N.Y. Jets
PROSPECT RNK
9th
POSITION RNK
1st

New England
PROSPECT RNK
6th
POSITION RNK
2nd

Georgia • Jr • 6'0" / 225 lbs

Projected Team
Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK
37th
POSITION RNK
6th

Howie Roseman bucks the trend and goes linebacker in Round 1. Dean flies around with serious energy and range.

Round 1 - Pick 15

Georgia • Soph • 6'6" / 330 lbs

Projected Team
Denver
PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK

I know, I know. Davis is a nose tackle. But he's different -- he can rush the passer! -- and Derrick Brown went in the top 10 in 2020.

Round 1 - Pick 16

Texas A&M • Jr • 6'4" / 325 lbs

Projected Team
Cincinnati
PROSPECT RNK
10th
POSITION RNK

Pittsburgh
PROSPECT RNK
15th
POSITION RNK
3rd

Burks would step into the slot position likely vacated by Juju Smith-Schuster leaving in free agency next March.

Projected Team
Minnesota
PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK

McDuffie would provide Mike Zimmer with a multi-dimensional defensive back with elite-level athletic traits.

Round 1 - Pick 19

South Carolina • Sr • 6'4" / 260 lbs

Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
35th
POSITION RNK
5th

Enagbare and Maxx Crosby would be one frightening edge-rushing tandem in Las Vegas for years to come.

Round 1 - Pick 20

NC State • Soph • 6'4" / 320 lbs

Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK

Ekwonu is pretty darn close to being NFL strong which will speed up his transition to the professional level.

Round 1 - Pick 21

USC • Jr • 6'5" / 210 lbs

Projected Team
New Orleans
PROSPECT RNK
60th
POSITION RNK
10th

Round 1 - Pick 22

Cincinnati • Jr • 6'2" / 188 lbs

Projected Team
Tennessee
PROSPECT RNK
18th
POSITION RNK
3rd

The Titans have to prioritize more defensive back help early in the 2022 draft. Gardner fits the mold Tennessee wants in its corners in that he's a man-coverage specialist.

Round 1 - Pick 23

Ohio State • Jr • 6'5" / 315 lbs

The Chargers have their franchise left tackle in Rashawn Slater. They get Petit-Frere here in Round 1 to solidify their right tackle position. He's very talented.

Round 1 - Pick 24

Alabama • Jr • 6'2" / 189 lbs

Projected Team
Cleveland
PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK

Williams is listed at 6-foot-2 and he glides around the football field. He'll be a riser during the pre-draft process.

Round 1 - Pick 25

Alabama • Jr • 6'1" / 210 lbs

Projected Team
Dallas
PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK

The safety spot in Dallas is somewhat of a patchwork group right now. Battle can be another playmaker behind Trevon Diggs in that secondary.

Round 1 - Pick 26

Texas A&M • Jr • 6'5" / 255 lbs

Projected Team
Green Bay
PROSPECT RNK
28th
POSITION RNK
1st

Wydermeyer is trending toward being the top tight end prospect in this class. His work in the trenches and pass-catching prowess would be welcomed in Green Bay.

Round 1 - Pick 27

Georgia • Sr • 6'5" / 230 lbs

Projected Team
Arizona
PROSPECT RNK
22nd
POSITION RNK
3rd

Given the age of some of the edge rushers in Arizona, the Cardinals go with the young, hyper-talented Anderson here, who has All-Pro upside.

Round 1 - Pick 28

Utah • Jr • 6'3" / 235 lbs

Projected Team
Baltimore
PROSPECT RNK
49th
POSITION RNK
7th

The Ravens add a tall, rangy linebacker to their disruptive defense.
