33 Tampa Bay (Trade)
Logan Hall
Houston
DL5T
Reach/Value:
-11
Height:

Weight:
283
Logan Hall NFL Draft photo
With Ndamukong Suh still roaming free agency, I wondered if Tampa Bay would go with a younger option moving forward. Suh is proven, but Logan Hall has a bright future as an end in this three-man front. He's got great size and a motor that runs non-stop. I don't think he's as a finished product like his teammate Payton Turner a year ago, but Hill's upside may be a tick higher. Grade: B+

34 Green Bay (Trade)
Christian Watson
North Dakota State
WR
Reach/Value:
-14
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
200
Christian Watson NFL Draft photo
The Packers finally got aggressive to nab a wide receiver. Christian Watson has the size and speed to replace Marquez Valdes-Scantling as a deep threat that takes the top off the defense. Watson averaged 18.6 yards per catch last year, and offers value as an All-American kick returner. Watson, who has exceptional upside at Green Bay's greatest position of need, is a huge win for the Packers.

Grade: A+
35 Tennessee (Trade)
Roger McCreary
Auburn
CB
Reach/Value:
-3
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
193
Roger McCreary NFL Draft photo
It's only natural that a baked bean-eating CB ends up in a town known for its BBQ offerings. Primarily a boundary cornerback for Auburn, Roger McCreary could see time at safety, box defender and nickel in the Titans defensive backfield.

His arms measured in less than 30 inches at the NFL Combine, which probably led to the talented pass defender's stock to slide into RD2.

Grade: B+
36 NY Jets
Breece Hall
Iowa State
RB
Reach/Value:
+3
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
210
Breece Hall NFL Draft photo
Joe Douglas is making this draft thing look easy. Yet again he gets rewarded for moving up a couple of spots to land another playmaker in the shape of Breece Hall. When you can nab the highest ranked players on our Big Board at CB, WR and now RB, you've got to be happy with the job the Jets GM is doing. A Carter-Hall 1-2 punch is going to be exciting to watch.

Grade: A
37 Houston
Jalen Pitre
Baylor
S
Reach/Value:
-9
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
198
Jalen Pitre NFL Draft photo
Jalen Pitre is a senior CB for Baylor who has been receiving significant playing time for the Bears since his freshman year. Pitre aligned in multiple positions for the Bears' defense --Baylor had no qualms asking Jalen to play FS, SS, ILB, or OLB.

Pitre is best when he can play as a middle-of-the-field robber and use his natural instincts to lead him to the ball.

Cody Lachney, Texans analyst

Grade: B +
38 Atlanta (Trade)
Arnold Ebiketie
Penn State
EDGE
Reach/Value:
+8
Height:
6' 3"
Weight:
256
Arnold Ebiketie NFL Draft photo
The pass rush in Atlanta has been woeful for so long that adding talent was essential. Arnold Ebiketie offers immediate upside at the 3-4 OLB rush position. He has long arms and good, heavy hands, but will likely need to polish some more moves to consistently beat NFL tackles. A solid, needed addition. Grade: B+
39 Chicago
Kyler Gordon
Washington
CB
Reach/Value:
+11
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
200
Kyler Gordon NFL Draft photo
The Bears needed a CB and get their man early in RD2. Kyler Gordon is the second Washington Corner selected in this draft after Trent McDuffie went to Kansas City in RD1.

Gordon is just under 6ft and doesn't have elite speed, but he's a baller and has a shot to be a week-1 starter.

Grade: B
40 Seattle (Trade)
Boye Mafe
Minnesota
EDGE
Reach/Value:
+1
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
261
Boye Mafe NFL Draft photo
Seattle needs more pass rush, especially with the switch to a 3-4 base front. Mafe was a LB often tasked with rushing the opposing quarterback and projects more as a 3-4 EDGE rusher.

His numbers as a pass rusher are disappointing, with most of his damage coming against inferior competition. He's also not particularly adept at stopping the run. Hopefully Seattle can bring out the best in him.

Grade: B+

41 Seattle
Kenneth Walker III
Michigan State
RB
Reach/Value:
-14
Height:
5'9"
Weight:
206
Kenneth Walker III NFL Draft photo
This is a bit of a head-scratcher. Both Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny are on the roster for 2022, but they are injury prone. Walker was a monster at MSU, but he has a lot of miles on his tires already with 499 total touches in his collegiate career.

A QB might have made more sense (you can't bank on 2023 being a good QB class), or a corner, or another lineman - offensive or defensive.

Grade: C

~Jeff Chapman, Seahawks Analyst
42 Minnesota (Trade)
Andrew Booth Jr.
Clemson
CB
Reach/Value:
+8
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
195
Andrew Booth Jr. NFL Draft photo
The Vikings traded the #34 pick to the Packers for the picks 53 and 59. Then, they traded up to the Colts pick sending picks 52, 77. and 192 for picks 42 and 122. They selected the last remaining top Cornerback, Andrew Booth who was #34 on the Drafttek Big board.

Booth has good size at 6-0, 196 with 31 1/2" arms. His chances for Round 1 suffered after a strained quad kept him from running at the Combine. He has quick feet and is an aggressive tackler. He played outside corner in Clemson's man and zone schemes and should fit well in the new Vikings defensive scheme. Grade: B
43 NY Giants (Trade)
Wan'Dale Robinson
Kentucky
WRS
Reach/Value:
-65
Height:
5'8"
Weight:
179
Wan'Dale Robinson NFL Draft photo
Wide receiver is a bit of a surprise, but Wan'Dale Robinson ranks in the 95th percentile for Breakout Age and 99th percentile for Target Share. Last season Robinson posted 104 catches for 1,342 yards and 7 TDs with an impressive 3.56 yards/route run. With Kadarius Toney and Darius Slayton potentially on the trading block, GM Joe Schoen could be facilitating more moves at the WR position.

Grade: B
44 Houston (Trade)
John Metchie III
Alabama
WRS
Reach/Value:
-20
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
195
John Metchie III NFL Draft photo
John Metchie III is an elite athlete that has exceptional start-stop ability and possesses blazing speed top-end that makes him a scoring threat on every play. John uses his straight-line speed to run deep overs, which have been a classic in the Alabama offense over the years.

Metchie III's explosive athleticism combined with his ability to break tackles in the open field will make him a nightmare matchup in the NFL!

Grade: A-
45 Baltimore
David Ojabo
Michigan
EDGE
Reach/Value:
+5
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
250
David Ojabo NFL Draft photo
The Ravens continue to make solid draft moves. David Ojabo broke out in 2021 with 11 sacks and 12 TFL. Yes, there's risk selecting a player who will likely miss the entire 2022 season after rupturing his achilles during Michigan's pro day. However, Ojabo would have been selected high in RD1 before the injury and will hopefully return in 2023 at full throttle.

Grade: B+
46 Detroit (Trade)
Josh Paschal
Kentucky
DL5T
Reach/Value:
-46
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
268
Josh Paschal NFL Draft photo
Nice. Detroit goes for another young edge rusher with Josh Paschal from Kentucky.

The D-line has been a point of emphasis for Holmes and Co. throughout his first two seasons, as last season they addressed the group by drafting Alim McNeil and Levi Onwuzurike. With the loss of Trey Flowers and veteran starters in Charles Harris and Michael Brockers, it makes sense to build a future pass rushing duo with Hutchinson-Paschal. A plan for the future, if you will.

Draft Grade: B

47 Washington (Trade)
Phidarian Mathis
Alabama
DL1T
Reach/Value:
-22
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
313
Phidarian Mathis NFL Draft photo
Commanders select Mathis to bolster the middle of the defensive line. The Alabama product has excelled in multiple fronts and will add to an already deep Washington front, drawing attention away from Chase Young and Montez Sweat.

Grade: A-
48 Chicago (Trade)
Jaquan Brisker
Penn State
S
Reach/Value:
-4
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
210
Jaquan Brisker NFL Draft photo
A second new piece arrives for Chicago's secondary in the space of 10 picks. Penn State's Jaquan Brisker is an athletic and versatile safety and a good value pick at #48.

Brisker should push for playing time early next to Eddie Jackson. Safety wasn't the biggest need for the Bears, but good players are always welcome.

Grade: B
49 New Orleans
Alontae Taylor
Tennessee
CB
Reach/Value:
-48
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
198
Alontae Taylor NFL Draft photo
Alontae Taylor is a versatile player who can play both CB and Safety. He has fluid hips, good vision, and can beat the receiver to the catch point.

At the NFL Combine, he ran a 4.36 in the 40 and at his Pro Day scored a 39 VJ & 11-1 BJ. That combination typically proves burst that bodes well for his career. He was also a special teams standout for the Volunteers.

Grade: B
50 New England (Trade)
Tyquan Thornton
Baylor
WR
Reach/Value:
-56
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
182
Tyquan Thornton NFL Draft photo
Bill Belichick with another apparent reach in the 2022 draft, and he even traded up to do it. The Patriots haven't had much success drafting wide receivers in the Belichick era, but give it another whirl with 4.28 speedster Tyquan Thornton.

Grade: C
51 Philadelphia
Cameron Jurgens
Nebraska
OC
Reach/Value:
-29
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
290
Cameron Jurgens NFL Draft photo
This one is a little tough for fans who were hoping for a LB with Nakobe Dean still on the board, but Cam Jurgens is a perfect fit in Philly. Jurgens is a hyper-athletic Center who drew comparisons to Jason Kelce and now will have a year to learn the finer points of the position under him.

Eagles continue to put themselves in great position for when their aging stars move on.

Grade: A-
52 Pittsburgh
George Pickens
Georgia
WR
Reach/Value:
-16
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
205
George Pickens NFL Draft photo
The Steelers lost JuJu, James Washington, and RayRay McCloud this offseason. They looked past some very good smaller receivers here to pick up the tall outside receiver from the Bulldogs.

The team lately seems to prioritize receivers who are effective at making a play on the ball in the air and Pickens fits that mold.

Grade B+
53 Indianapolis (Trade)
Alec Pierce
Cincinnati
WR
Reach/Value:
-30
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
213
Alec Pierce NFL Draft photo
Alec Pierce is a strong route-runner with deceptive top-end speed. Pierce is a great hands catcher who uses his big body to box out DBs like it's nothing.

Alec is crisp through his breaks, and he makes terrific adjustments against zone coverage, and knows how to make himself available to his QB, especially on come-back routes. A true threat to be a dominant slot WR for the Colts!

54 Kansas City (Trade)
Skyy Moore
Western Michigan
WR
Reach/Value:
+1
Height:
5'9"
Weight:
195
Skyy Moore NFL Draft photo
Skyy Moore is PFF's highest-graded wide receiver in this draft. I can easily see him as the next versatile gadget receiver that Andy Reid offense. He can get open in various alignments, haul in passes in heavy traffic, and churn out YAC.

A former QB and DB who transitioned to the WR room, the Western Michigan prospect hauled in 95 rec, with over 107 receiving yds per game, and 10 TDs in 2021.

Grade: A-

55 Arizona
Trey McBride
Colorado State
TE
Reach/Value:
+1
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
260
Trey McBride NFL Draft photo
Trey McBride is a gifted athlete with agility and movement skills. In the run game, he's not an overly powerful inline blocker but he plays with toughness and aggression at the point of attack.

In the passing game he has excelled as a primary receiving target for Colorado States' offense. McBride does a good job uncovering and plays with deceptive straight line speed!

Grade: B +
56 Dallas
Sam Williams
Ole Miss
EDGE
Reach/Value:
-49
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
261
Sam Williams NFL Draft photo
After reaching on an offensive lineman in the first round, I'm glad to see I had this pick right over the last month or so. Williams has impressive burst (1.6 10-yard split, 36 VJ), and he put up insane numbers (12.5 sacks, 15 TFL) in the SEC last year, despite playing out of position a good portion of the time.

Dan Quinn will love pairing him with Micah Parsons coming off the edge. Pick suggests the Cowboys got the answers they wanted about an off-field issue, especially with Kelvin Joseph's future in jeopardy. Grade: B+

~Austin Smith, DraftTek Senior Analyst
57 Tampa Bay (Trade)
Luke Goedeke
Central Michigan
OG
Reach/Value:
-30
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
310
Luke Goedeke NFL Draft photo
I'm a bit shocked that Luke Goedeke is the first Central Michigan lineman off the board, but he's a good fit for Tampa Bay. Like Bernhard Raimann, he's a former tight end with good athleticism.

Still, I am shocked at how physically he plays, despite still having room to add weight to his frame. He is still a work in progress with his technique, but this is a nice grab for the Bucs at a position of need. Grade: B

~Austin Smith, DraftTek Senior Analyst
58 Atlanta (Trade)
Troy Andersen
Montana State
ILB
Reach/Value:
-3
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
242
Troy Andersen NFL Draft photo
Troy Anderson is all about the potential and the tools. A remarkable career as a QB, RB, LB and valedictorian at Montana State and truly elite athletic testing make him a long term upside pick.

This likely spells the end of Deion Jones' time in Atlanta, as Atlanta will need to make him a June cut to sign this draft class. You have to wonder why they passed on Nakobe Dean, though. Grade: B-
59 Minnesota (Trade)
Ed Ingram
LSU
OG
Reach/Value:
-75
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
314
Ed Ingram NFL Draft photo
The Vikings finally stayed put, did not trade their pick and selected another position of need. Ed Ingram started 23 games at Left Guard and 12 games at Right Guard for LSU in LSU's spread zone gap offense. He is 6-3 1/2, 312 with 33 7/8" arms.

He has the power and strength in pass rush sets to handle bull rushers which has been the Achilles heel for Vikings guards for several seasons. He was rated 134th on the Drafttek big board which makes it quite the reach here. The team must have seen something they really like in Ingram.

Grade: C
60 Cincinnati (Trade)
Cam Taylor-Britt
Nebraska
CB
Reach/Value:
-22
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
196
Cam Taylor-Britt NFL Draft photo
The Bengals continue to build their secondary which was in dire need of help. Cam Taylor-Britt is 5'10.5" 207 with 31 1/4" arms. He ran a 4.38 forty. He mainly played Cornerback for the Huskers with a few starts at safety. His versatility and receiver background helped him rack up 27 passes defended and 6 interceptions in his career. He was voted a senior captain by his teammates which shows his leadership ability. He was rated 82nd on the Drafttek big board but the Cornerbacks are going fast.

Grade: B
61 San Francisco
Drake Jackson
USC
EDGE
Reach/Value:
+10
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
273
Drake Jackson NFL Draft photo
The 49ers added Kemeko Turay on a one-year deal, but a still looking for a long-term solution opposite Nick Bosa. Drake Jackson has the length, speed and bend to be great as a pass rusher, but his game is a little unrefined.

In San Francisco he'll have time to add some bulk and functional strength, as well as nuance to his game while contributing on a rotational basis as a rookie.

Grade: A-
62 Kansas City
Bryan Cook
Cincinnati
S
Reach/Value:
-23
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
210
Bryan Cook NFL Draft photo
The Chiefs entered the offseason indire need for depth at Safety. After the additions of Justin Reid and Devin Bush, Juan Thornhill is the only remaining Safety from the 2021 roster. He reaches the end of his rookie contract at the end of this season, after spending at least the first third of 2021 in Spagnuolo's doghouse. Enter Bryan Cook, one of three standouts drafted from the Cincinnati defensive backfield. He's a versatile player with a physical presence coming off a late season shoulder surgery.

Grade: B< br>

63 Buffalo (Trade)
James Cook
Georgia
RB
Reach/Value:
-3
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
190
James Cook NFL Draft photo
The Bills were interested in a running back to ultimately replace 2023 free agent Devin Singletary and Zach Moss who hasn't panned out. GM Brandon Beane was hoping Breece Hall or Kenneth Walker would be available at #57. They were gone however, allowing the Bills to trade back, collect picks, and draft 8.9 RAS James Cook from Georgia.

Grade: B+
64 Denver (Trade)
Nik Bonitto
Oklahoma
EDGE
Reach/Value:
-7
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
248
Nik Bonitto NFL Draft photo
Bonitto is a guy that will start his career as a pass-rush specialist for the Broncos. Considering the pass offenses that reside in the brutal AFC West, Denver can never have enough guys that can get after the quarterback. I was disappointed that he couldn't get above 240 pounds as an edge rusher at Oklahoma.

If Bonitto can add the appropriate weight to his frame, he can grow into a bigger role. Denver just picked up Bradley Chubb's fifth-year option, allowing them to be patient with Bonitto. Grade: B
