Queipo’s 2022 NFL Draft Big Board

One of the crucial thrilling components of not too long ago becoming a member of Pewter Report has been the chance to be taught from the scouting processes of each Scott Reynolds and Jon Ledyard. Actually, the vigorous debate the 2 of them lead the remainder of the employees on impressed me to create my first complete scouting file for the 2022 NFL draft class. After all, with these scouting studies comes the inevitable “Large Board.”

My Course of

As with every analysis you will need to present context and course of. It wouldn’t be a lot enjoyable to only publish a listing of names with out the reasoning of how I got here to that order. So, earlier than we get to the board itself, here’s a rundown of my grading course of. Contemplating my mentors, it shouldn’t shock you that my mannequin will look much like Jon Ledyard’s. Due to this fact, in the event you hate my huge board construction, I encourage you responsible Jon.

BLUE — Blue Chip Prospects — I’m very assured these gamers can step into an NFL beginning lineup and be an instantaneous contributor.

PINK — First-Spherical Grades — These gamers ought to be capable of be fast contributors to an NFL roster, if not as a starter, as somebody who can log important snaps in yr one.

GREEN — Second-Spherical Grades — Gamers with a number of NFL-caliber traits that ought to translate, however they’ll want some improvement to achieve success on the subsequent stage.

ORANGE — Third-Spherical Grades — Prospects which have a couple of of NFL-caliber traits, however they lack consistency in leveraging these traits or strategies. 

OLIVE — Fourth-Spherical Grades — Prospects which have one to 2 actually good traits that you simply hope proceed to develop on the subsequent stage. Additionally, you will discover a couple of gamers with publicly reported medical issues.

RED — Fifth-Spherical Grades — Gamers that may be productive particular teamers who could contribute a couple of snaps per sport on the NFL stage.

PEACH — Sixth-Spherical Grades — Gamers which have okay traits that more than likely gained’t translate to the NFL stage.

PURPLE — Seventh-Spherical Grades — Productive school gamers that lack traits that I believe will translate to the subsequent stage.

As with most huge boards these scores are performed in a vacuum primarily based on the gamers skills at their place. It doesn’t account for positional worth, which may considerably change the place gamers are drafted. As an example, a quarterback with a second-round grade might very nicely be drafted earlier than a “blue chip” heart. Moreover, my board is not going to embrace 32 gamers with every spherical grade.

With ALL of that mentioned, let’s dive into my huge board so you possibly can let me know the place I went proper, and extra seemingly all of the locations I went mistaken!

2022 NFL Draft First-Spherical Grades

1 OG Zion Johnson

2 CB Derek Stingley, Jr

3 OT Charles Cross

4 EDGE Kayvon Thibodeaux

5 WR Treylon Burks

6 C Tyler Linderbaum

14 WR Chris Olave

15 DT Devonte Wyatt

16 S Dax Hill

17 CB Kyler Gordon

18 EDGE Jermaine Johnson

19 EDGE Aidan Hutchinson

20 DT Jordan Davis

21 WR George Pickens

I absolutely admit that 21 first-round grades is a excessive quantity. That’s very true on this yr’s draft class, the place consensus holds there aren’t many “blue chip” prospects. Nevertheless, I’ll argue that groups are more and more scheming towards participant’s strengths. This permits these gamers to be fast constructive difference-makers moreso than previously. Just a few fast notes on a few of these:

  • Zion Johnson at No. 1 could shock some. My rationale is that he’s the cleanest prospect within the class. Greater than another participant, I see Johnson having the ability to step onto any roster and instantly be a top-tier participant at his place.
  • Charles Cross as my prime deal with is because of him having the most effective cross safety tape of the highest three guys.
  • George Pickens being included could shock some. Nevertheless, he is among the few “X” receivers on this class and he has already recovered from his ACL tear. His tape is unbelievable, and he can win in a wide range of methods.

45 C Cam Jurgens

46 QB Matt Corral

47 QB Sam Howell

48 QB Desmond Ridder

49 EDGE Arnold Ebiketie

50 QB Malik Willis

51 OT Tyler Smith

Right here is the place you will notice many of the prime quarterbacks within the class on my board. They’re a part of the 29 gamers which have a second-round grade for me. Two potential surprises on this listing are Trey McBride and Tyler Smith. I included McBride right here as a result of the truth that the transition for tight ends from school to NFL has constantly proven to be probably the most tough with most gamers not changing into sturdy contributors till a yr two or later. As for Smith, whereas his tape isn’t as sturdy as that of Penning, I’m banking on his youthful age to account for a stronger improvement curve.

2022 NFL Draft Third-Spherical Grades

52 CB Cam Taylor-Britt

53 C Cole Unusual

54 WR Alec Pierce

55 C Zach Tom

56 CB Tariq Woolen

79 EDGE DeAngelo Malone

80 RB James Prepare dinner

81 WR Skyy Moore

82 EDGE Josh Paschal

83 OT Bernhard Raimann

84 CB Roger McCreary

85 OT Daniel Faalele

Marcus McKethan is the largest change from consensus on this spherical for my board. I liked his tape and traits and I’m keen to exit on a limb that he will probably be an excellent NFL starter sooner fairly than later.
