    2022 NFL Mock Draft: George Karlaftis, Sam Howell, and Matt Corral highlight three rounds of picks

    2022 NFL Mock Draft | Round 2, Picks 33-49

    Reminder: Draft order is based on Pro Football Network’s free Mock Draft Simulator with trades, which is current based on the completion of the Week 11 action.

    33) Detroit Lions
    David Bell, WR, Purdue

    34) Jacksonville Jaguars
    Jermaine Johnson, EDGE, Florida State

    35) Houston Texans
    Devin Lloyd, LB, Utah

    36) New York Jets
    Jaquan Brisker, S, Penn State

    37) Seattle Seahawks
    Charles Cross, OT, Mississippi State

    38) Chicago Bears
    Nicholas Petit-Frere, OT, Ohio State

    The Bears must continue to throw darts at the offensive line, or they risk stunting the growth of their talented quarterback. Ideally, they’d address this in free agency first as to not rely on a name falling to 38, but hopefully whoever is running the show by then is smart enough to realize that.

    Petit-Frere has had his ups and downs in 2021, but there’s a reason they kicked Thayer Munford inside in favor of Petit-Frere.

    39) New York Giants
    Brandon Smith, LB, Penn State

    40) Miami Dolphins
    Isaiah Spiller, RB, Texas A&M

    The first back is off the board, and there should be no surprises who it is. Spiller has first-round talent, but positional value could mean a team commits theft on Day 2 of the 2022 NFL Draft, and in this mock draft in particular.

    41) Washington Football Team
    Jalen Tolbert, WR, South Alabama

    42) Atlanta Falcons
    Kenny Pickett, QB, Pittsburgh

    This was a difficult decision for me, but I doubt Arthur Smith and Co. want to bet big on Malik Willis long-term. Smith’s offense doesn’t require a Herculean effort from the quarterback position to be successful. They must simply facilitate on deep crossers off play-action (for the most part). Pickett feels safe, which the Falcons may prefer.

    43) New York Jets
    Bernhard Raimann, OT, Central Michigan

    44) Philadelphia Eagles
    Perrion Winfrey, DT, Oklahoma

    45) San Francisco 49ers
    Kyler Gordon, CB, Washington

    46) Las Vegas Raiders
    Travon Walker, DT, Georgia

    47) Denver Broncos
    Myjai Sanders, EDGE, Cincinnati

    48) Cleveland Browns
    Cameron Thomas, EDGE/DT, San Diego State

    49) Indianapolis Colts
    Lewis Cine, S, Georgia

    2022 NFL Mock Draft | Round 2, Picks 50-64

    50) Pittsburgh Steelers
    Desmond Ridder, QB, Cincinnati

    I have no idea what lies in store for the Steelers at the position moving forward, but I assume it doesn’t involve Mason Rudolph or Dwayne Haskins. Ben Roethlisberger is a shell of his former self and I hope hangs up the cleats after 2021, because it’s sad to watch a legend die slowly.

    Ridder has a bit of a smooth-bored cannon for an arm, but the upside he provides athletically is enough to gamble on, especially when their current option is a 6-foot-4 QB with a water gun.

    51) Minnesota Vikings
    Lecitus Smith, G, Virginia Tech

    52) New Orleans Saints
    Malik Willis, QB, Liberty

    I love the idea of a truly athletic quarterback paired with Sean Payton. By that, I do not mean an athlete that they sometimes have play QB.

    Willis could provide so much to this offense, and hopefully, it wouldn’t have to happen until Year 2 at the earliest. Ideally, he can sit behind and learn from Jameis Winston and Payton.

    53) Cincinnati Bengals
    Jalen Catalon, S, Arkansas

    54) Los Angeles Chargers
    Isaiah Likely, TE, Coastal Carolina

    55) Buffalo Bills
    Rasheed Walker, OT, Penn State

    56) Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Kenneth Walker III, RB, Michigan State

    57) Kansa City Chiefs
    Erik Ezukanma, WR, Texas Tech

    58) New England Patriots
    Roger McCreary, CB, Auburn

    59) Dallas Cowboys
    DeMarvion Overshown, LB, Texas

    60) Denver Broncos
    Kaleb Eleby, QB, Western Michigan

    Eleby is a name to keep an eye on over the coming months. His name is starting to get louder on social media. But don’t just look at Twitter. Go find you some MACtion reruns to watch!

    61) Baltimore Ravens
    Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson, CB, TCU

    62) Green Bay Packers
    Christian Harris, LB, Alabama

    63) Atlanta Falcons
    Jordan Battle, S, Alabama

    64) Arizona Cardinals
    Jalen Wydermyer, TE, Texas A&M
