2022 NFL Two-Round Mock Draft – Jeremy Popielarz 1.0

"<yoastmark

With the 2022 NFL Draft only a few weeks away it’s mock draft time! I went through and assessed all teams’ needs, and predicted the first two rounds of the NFL Draft. With many top playmakers in this class, there are a lot of questions. Who is the first tackle taken? Or who is the first wide receiver off the board?  Could it be Garrett Wilson or Drake London? Possibly even Treylon Burks. Will Aidan Hutchinson or Kayvon Thibodeaux be the first edge rusher off the board?

When sitting down to work through this year’s draft I was looking to find the best fit for these teams. I wanted to fill positions of need as well as get the best value. Due to this, I selected the best player available at a position of need for the team on the clock. Also, I factored in some of the coaching tendencies and player fit as well when possible. This resulted in a draft full of surprises possibly even with the first pick!

The Buccaneers lost star guard Alex Cappa in FA so adding another potential star in the versatile Johnson in the first round makes the most sense for a team needing to protect a 44-year-old QB.
28

Packers
David OjaboDEMichigan
With their second pick in this round the Packers address another position of need DE, adding a player who needs recovery time after an Achilles injury in his pro day. However, once this recovery is over he could be a steal this late in the draft.

Bills
Kenneth WalkerRBMichigan State
The Bills address the need at the RB position here adding a elusive and powerful runner.
58

Falcons
via TEN
Darian KinnardOTKentucky
Adding this three-year starter to the rotation will be wise for the Falcons as they continue their rebuild. He will bring a nastiness to this offensive line, similar to Taylor Lewan a former Arthur Smith Tackle.
59

Packers
Trey McBrideTEColorado State
Don't look now but the packers just spent two top 64 picks on weapons for Aaron Rodgers. Consider it a gift after trading away his top WR. Either way they add to a position of need for them by adding the top TE in this class.
60

Buccaneers

62

Chiefs

63

Bengals
Kingsley EnagbareEDGESouth Carolina
The Bengals improved their DL last year in FA, however, there is still a need for some youth. They can get this with a versatile defender who can play heavier and move inside if needed.

After possibly moving on from Melvin Gordon, the Broncos get to add a second RB to the stable. Hackett has always used a multiple RB system, they get a nice complement to Javonte Williams power running style.
