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

This 2022 NFL Mock Draft provides a little levity to the grim situations facing teams drafting high. Which teams come out on top?

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
