Final 2022 NFL mock draft

1. Jacksonville Jaguars - Travon Walker, Edge, Georgia

Once a severe long shot to be picked No. 1, Walker jumped ahead of Aidan Hutchinson in the Vegas odds on Monday. Vegas knows.

2. Detroit Lions - Aidan Hutchinson, Edge, Michigan

Easiest pick of the draft.

3. Houston Texans - Derek Stingley Jr., CB, LSU

After Stingley eased any remaining concerns about his health at his pro day, a top-five selection is no longer a reach.

4. New York Jets - Ikem Ekwonu, OT, NC State

Even with George Fant and Mekhi Becton on the roster, the Jets can't pass up the chance to improve Zach Wilson's protection.

5. New York Giants - Evan Neal, OL, Alabama

The Giants ease some of their protection concerns by adding the draft's most versatile offensive lineman.

6. Carolina Panthers - Charles Cross, OT, Mississippi State

Carolina would love to trade this pick. If they stick at No. 6, the pick probably won't be a quarterback.

7. Giants (via CHI) - Ahmad Gardner, CB, Cincinnati

Edge rusher is also a possibility here.

8. Atlanta Falcons - Drake London, WR, USC

The Falcons reportedly "love" London. They might look to pair him with a second-round QB.

9. Seattle Seahawks (via DEN) - Kayvon Thibodeaux, EDGE, Oregon

Are the Seahawks rebuilding or not? Either way, they need to bolster their DL in a big way. Thibodeaux won't slide past No. 9.

10. Jets (via SEA) - Jermaine Johnson, EDGE, Florida State

Last-minute reports suggested the Jets are heavily in on Thibodeaux and Johnson.

11. Washington Commanders - Kyle Hamilton, S, Notre Dame

The Commanders want a versatile safety.

12. Minnesota Vikings - Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State

Adam Thielen is 31.

13. Texans (via CLE) - Jameson Williams, WR, Alabama

Fantastic value on perhaps the draft's best wideout.

14. Baltimore Ravens - Jordan Davis, DT, Georgia

The Ravens aren't letting an athletic talent like Davis get past them.

15. Philadelphia Eagles (via MIA) - Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas

A stylistic complement to DeVonta Smith. And yes, a third first-round wideout in the last three years.

16. New Orleans Saints (via PHI, IND) - Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State

The Saints' questionable trade with the Eagles makes sense if they knew they had to get ahead of the Chargers for a top WR.

17. Los Angeles Chargers - Trevor Penning, OT, Northern Iowa

Receiver could be the pick here, but the Chargers might prefer to keep adding protection in front of their stud quarterback. Their Super Bowl window is now.

18. Philadelphia Eagles - Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington

A position group in need of new talent.

19. New Orleans Saints - Kenny Pickett, QB, Pitt

Why trade ahead of the Steelers if not for a quarterback?

20. Pittsburgh Steelers - Malik Willis, QB, Liberty

The Steelers don't do a very good job of hiding the prospects they love.

21. New England Patriots - Devin Lloyd, LB, Utah

The Patriots still haven't re-signed Dont'a Hightower.

22. Green Bay Packers (via LV) - Logan Hall, DL, Houston

Still no wideout for Aaron Rodgers...

23. Arizona Cardinals - Zion Johnson, OL, Boston College

An olive branch to Kyler Murray.

24. Dallas Cowboys - Kenyon Green, OL, Texas A&M

Wide receiver could be an option here if one of the big names falls.

25. Buffalo Bills - Andrew Booth, CB, Clemson

Breece Hall is a popular choice in industry mocks, but the Bills are too smart to do that.

26. Tennessee Titans - Tyler Smith, OT, Tulsa

The Titans are still seeking a mauling right tackle. But could this pick be a QB?

27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Devonte Wyatt, DL, Georgia

The Bucs need to maintain their strength at the interior of the defensive line.

28. Green Bay Packers - George Pickens, WR, Georgia

The Packers finally draft a wide receiver early.

29. Kansas City Chiefs (via MIA, SF) - Kyler Gordon, CB, Washington

Someone has to play cornerback on this team.

30. Kansas City Chiefs - Boye Mafe, EDGE, Minnesota

Frank Clark's replacement.

31. Cincinnati Bengals - Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida

We all saw how the Bengals' starting cornerbacks played in the Super Bowl.

32. Lions (via LAR) - Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia

The fifth-year option for quarterbacks no longer has the same value to teams given the cost. And the Lions could risk waiting until pick 34 to find a passer (or forego the position entirely this year).
