2022 NFL Mock Draft

Selection Comment - Pick #23

Return to Mock Draft

Kaiir Elam



The Bills have been mocked Breece Hall throughout the process, with many draft pundits claiming he'd be the missing piece to this offense. I never believed that Brandon Beane, who is solid with analytics, would take a RB in the first round. Why would he? The roster has gaping holes (yes, plural) at CB. The addition of Kaiir Elam, who was projected to be a top four CB, will be a welcome one as he will immediately start opposite Tre White. Elam, White, and Taron Johnson could form a formidable group of starting CBs with an elite pair of safeties on the back end. This defense is built to contend with an insanely powerful AFC and this move keeps the Super Bowl window firmly open.

Grade: A
