Quarter-Season 2022 Mock Draft

Welcome to the Quarter-Season 2022 NFL Mock Draft! Where I, Ryan McAloon (@ryfootballscout), will draft for every team in the first round if the draft were to happen tomorrow. This is just a fun exercise to get a feel for what player might be taken in the first round next April, while also taking a step back and evaluating what your favorite NFL team is lacking at the moment. However, I will not just draft for need and I will try my best to do what I think these Organizations would do. Please, grab yourself your favorite beer, cocktail, or a cup of coffee and let’s run through it!

A special thank you to Tankathon, as I used their website to set the draft order & RiseNDraft, as I used their website & database to get all players heights & weights.

2022 First Round Mock Draft

1.) Jacksonville Jaguars

Derek Stingley jr. — Cornerback — LSU — 6’1” 195 lbs.

A huge curveball to start the 2022 Mock Draft. A cornerback has never been taken first overall or second overall in the history of the NFL. Derek Stingley jr. is that special of a talent. Furthermore, the NFL has continued to progress into a pass-happy league and the cornerback position is increasing in value each passing year. Stingley is an absurd athlete, coming in at number nine on Bruce Feldman’s: Freaks List, highlighted by his 4.30 40 yard dash time and 42 inch vertical. Stingley’s been an elite cover-man since the moment he stepped on the football field for LSU.

Jacksonville can certainly go in a number of different directions here. Kayvon Thibodeaux, Kyle Hamilton, Evan Neal, etc. are all solid options. With Jacksonville recently drafting Jawaan Taylor and Walker Little I opted to pass on Neal. Jacksonville has also spent two first round picks on edge rushers in recent years, drafting Josh Allen seventh overall in 2019 and K’Lavon Chaisson twentieth overall in 2020. As good of a player as Kyle Hamilton is, Stingley plays a more valuable position and one Jacksonville is desperately trying to fill since shipping Jalen Ramsey off to LA.

2.) Detroit Lions

Malik Willis — Quarterback — Liberty — 6’0-5/8” 215 lbs.

Another pick that isn’t necessarily “chalk”. Malik Willis is the definition of a playmaker. Willis plays the position like he is always looking for the big play, whether that be with his arm or his legs. He had trouble with consistency with his throwing mechanics and accuracy in 2020, but has looked much better thus far in 2021. Malik Willis is also going to play a huge role in the run game and can be a one-man offense if need be, similar to Lamar Jackson.

Detroit may opt to wait on a quarterback until the 2023 draft. However, I imagine Dan Campbell is ready to start winning and this roster isn’t completely dearth of talent. I’m not sure they will lose enough games in 2022 to earn a top-5 selection again. So instead, Detroit opts to take a high-risk/high-reward quarterback who will have a chance to sit a full year behind Jared Goff before playing meaningful snaps.

3.) New York Jets

Kayvon Thibodeaux — Edge Defender — Oregon — 6’4” 250 lbs.

Arguably the best player in the draft falls to number three overall. Thibodeaux is a former number two overall recruit and wasted no time making a name for himself at Oregon. Kayvon accounted for nine sacks as a true freshman in 2019. As good of a pass rusher Thibodeaux is, he is equally as good as a run defender. Kayvon consistently sheds his blocker, keeping his head up and looking for the ball carrier.

The New York Jets are another team who could use help everywhere. The defensive line is actually pretty solid in New York with the now-injured Carl Lawson due to be back for the 2022 season along with John Franklin-Meyers and Quinnen Williams. Robert Saleh’s defense is reliant on a consistent pass rush, Kayvon will complete a great rotation up front for Saleh and Jeff Ulbrich.

4.) Philadelphia Eagles (via Miami)

Kyle Hamilton — Saftey — Notre Dame — 6’4” 220 lbs.

Kyle Hamilton also has a case to be the best player in the draft. At 6’4” and 220 pounds you would assume he is a box-safety/linebacker. You would be incorrect. Hamilton possesses an incredible amount of range at his size and can legitimately play as a deep middle-of-the-field safety, if needed. Hamilton’s overall versatility and size will give Philadelphia a potential superstar in the backend of their defense.

Philadelphia currently has three draft picks in the top-ten due to the numerous trades they made last off-season. Indianapolis’ first round pick will turn into a second round selection if Carson Wentz fails to play in 75% of Indianapolis’ offensive snaps. I imagine if Indianapolis continues to struggle and lose games they will bench Wentz and keep their own first round pick, so dont get too excited Philadelphia fans, but an early second round selection is still a steal for Carson Wentz at this point in time.

5.) Atlanta Falcons

Evan Neal — Offensive Tackle — Alabama — 6’6-5/8” 350 lbs.

The number one freak in Bruce Feldman’s aforementioned Freaks List. Evan Neal is an incredible athlete at his size. That athleticism is going to look very good in Arthur Smith’s outside-zone running game.

Atlanta’s defense is still in need of a rebuild, but with the three best defenders (in my opinion) all gone Atlanta opts to take the next best player available at a premium position. Atlanta still may be looking at the 2023 draft as a place to find their next franchise signal caller.

6.) Philadelphia Eagles (via Indianapolis)

Carson Strong — Quarterback — Nevada — 6’3-1/2” 215 lbs.

Half of Philadelphia will praise the selection of a new quarterback, while the other half will call for my head in the comments section. Jalen Hurts has not been a difference maker at quarterback so far, in my opinion. He has clear physical limitations as a passer and puts a ceiling on Nick Sirianni’s offense. Carson Strong breaks through any ceilings with his natural arm strength. Strong has shown he has an absolute howitzer on his shoulder and seemingly has a new highlight throw every week. His deep ball touch and accuracy are also present often in his game. Coming from a lower level of competition, Strong could afford to sit and adjust to the NFL’s game speed. Philadelphia will still have Jalen Hurts on the roster and are in a good position to be patient with Strong.

7.) Houston Texans

Demarvin Leal — Defensive Line — Texas A&M — 6’4” 290 lbs.

Demarvin Leal is a big, strong defensive lineman who can play at any position on the defensive line. Leal is an elite athlete for his size as well, highlighting how well he can play on the edge despite being 290 pounds. As good as Leal has been in his college career, he has plenty of room for improvement with his technique. Leal’s upside is immense, making it easy for him to be a top-ten selection.

The Houston Texans are in a horrible situation. One they have put themselves in by letting Bill O’Brien run the team into the ground while having complete control of the football operations. The Deshaun Watson situation is also a terrible situation and something no one has any idea what will happen. As of right now I will operate as if Watson will never play a down of football again. Houston has so many holes on this roster that they are poised to be one of the worst teams in the NFL for a couple of more years. Drafting a quarterback at this point will either ruin a young talented signal caller or waste his talents on a terrible roster. Instead I opt to take a premium position player with high-end upside.

8.) New England Patriots

Kaiir Elam — Cornerback — Florida — 6’2” 196 lbs.

Kaiir Elam has been another elite cornerback in the SEC. Elam also has NFL bloodlines with his father Abram playing seven seasons with various NFL teams. His Uncle, Matt Elam, also played in the NFL for three seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. Kaiir Elam has impressive athleticism and speed for a corner of his size. Elam also excels as a press-man corner. With his size and coverage skills he is a perfect fit as a Bill Belichick cornerback.

New England is currently re-loading their roster and nabbing a star cornerback to presumably replace Stephon Gilmore is a great use of a top-ten pick. The Patriots have their future quarterback in Mac Jones and will look to surround him with more weapons, but the value is not here right now and they are better off waiting for a wide receiver at this point in the draft.

9.) Philadelphia Eagles

Aidan Hutchison — Edge Defender — Michigan — 6’6-3/8” 265 lbs.

Aidan Hutchison is one of the the biggest risers this season with his play. Hutchinson reportedly dropped roughly 15 pounds this off-season to get to 265 pounds. Hutchison wanted to play strictly on the edge and have more speed, it has worked as he currently owns the highest pass-rush win-rate in the country, according to PFF. Hutchison also checked in at number two on Bruce Feldman’s Freaks List.

10.) New York Giants

Tyler Linderbaum — Offensive Center — Iowa — 6’3” 289 lbs.

A center in the top-ten? Yes, although I admit it’s unlikely to actually happen come April, Tyler Linderbaum is that good. Linderbaum is a menace in the run game and consistently blocks up-to and sometimes past the whistle, finishing his blocks on every whistle. That type of attitude is something that will rub off on an offensive line and make the entire group play with an edge. Linderbaum is more than a mauler, in fact he actually is at his best on the move on pulls and screens looking to throw defensive backs and linebackers out of the club. The Giants could use an upgrade and attitude adjustment to their offensive line to help highlight Saquon Barkley again.

11.) Minnesota Vikings

Andrew Booth jr. — Cornerback — Clemson — 6’0-3/8” 200 lbs.

Minnesota is in a weird spot with their roster. They aren’t really in a place to contend, but also aren’t bad enough to grab a high-end quarterback to replace Kirk Cousins with. Minnesota drafted Kellen Mond in the third round last April, I’d assume he will be brought along and hopefully be developed into their next starting quarterback. Meanwhile, Minnesota will continue to plug its other roster holes. Andrew Booth has been rock solid for Clemson this season and would help a struggling Minnesota secondary.

12.) Pittsburgh Steelers

Matt Corral — Quarterback — Ole Miss — 6’1-5/8” 205 lbs.

Ben Roethlisberger is done. He will be a first-ballot Hall of Famer and the city of Pittsburgh will remember him fondly, but his time on the field is over. Pittsburgh has put-off finding his heir for too long now. Matt Corral may not be the choice come April, but Pittsburgh must look long and hard at all of these quarterbacks and choose wisely. Corral has enjoyed a stellar season so far and at one point was the Heisman favorite. Matt Corral has improved his accuracy and decision making from the 2020 season.

13.) Miami Dolphins (via San Francisco)

Kenyon Green — Offensive Lineman — Texas A&M— 6’4” 325 lbs.

The Miami Dolphins are in a tough spot. Trading their own 2022 first round pick in the off-season, then proceeding to start the season (1-3) is not ideal. Their biggest weakness is easily their offensive line. Miami’s offensive line is the worst in the NFL, but not for their lack of effort. Chris Grier and company have spent plenty of draft capital on the trenches, but seemingly haven’t been rewarded with any hits. They’ve drafted six offensive linemen in the past three drafts, including three in the first two rounds. Miami must go into free agency to address the offensive line as well, but Kenyon Green is a big and versatile lineman who can play at tackle or guard. Miami and Grier have shown they value that kind of size and versatility.

14.) New York Jets (via Seattle)

Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner — Cornerback — Cincinnati — 6’2” 188 lbs

The New York Jets continue to build up this defense by adding “Sauce” Gardner out of Cincinnati. Gardner is a long and tough corner who excels as a press-coverage corner. He sometimes is a bit too handsy and can get flagged for it. The Jets could use a wide receiver as well, but Gardner is one of the best corners in this class and fits perfectly in Robert Saleh’s defense.

15.) New Orleans Saints

Sam Howell — Quarterback — North Carolina — 6’0-3/4” 225 lbs.

New Orleans is another team in quarterback-limbo. They aren’t a bad enough roster and are too well coached to have any chance of drafting high enough for a blue-chip quarterback prospect in the near future. Instead I’ve decided to take Howell here, a flawed but solid quarterback prospect. Howell is an undersized quarterback who is best working inside the offense on-time, delivering the ball accurately and with anticipation. Does this sound familiar, maybe like a recently retired New Orleans Saints legend? I’m joking! It’s just a joke! However, Howell would make a nice pairing with Sean Payton. New Orleans’ roster is still ready for playoff contention, but it seems as if Payton doesn’t have trust in Jameis Winston to not turn the ball over. Howell should prove to be a better decision maker in his first couple of seasons.

16.) New York Giants (via Chicago)

Drake Jackson — Edge Defender — USC — 6’4” 250 lbs.

With the trade back that netted Chicago Justin Fields, New York now has their second selection in the first round. With them addressing their offensive line earlier, they now turn back to their defense which ranks 27th in DVOA, per Football Outsiders. Drake Jackson is an excellent athlete with enough bend to get around blockers with ease. Jackson struggles as a run defender at times, but overall has a high ceiling with room to improve. The Giants have a talented roster, it isn’t perfect but if Daniel Jones is the guy they should be a playoff team in 2022.

17.) Kansas City Chiefs

Treylon Burks — Wide Receiver — Arkansas — 6’3” 225 lbs.

Kansas City has plenty of holes defensively, but they also have shown they have missed Sammy Watkins. With no cornerbacks worthy of a Top-20 pick left on the board, Treylon Burks is the pick. Burks has plenty of size at 6’3” and 225 pounds, but also has shown impressive speed at that size and excellent yards after the catch ability. This Kansas City roster is going to be constantly in playoff contention as long as Patrick Mahomes is playing. General Manager Brett Veach is going to have to continuously add talent through the draft to keep this roster under the cap. Kansas City can continue to take best-player-available and neglect need as long as Veach and company hit on their draft picks.

18.) Cleveland Browns

Garrett Wilson — Wide Receiver — Ohio State — 5’11-3/4” 188 lbs.

Baker Mayfield had a brutal game Sunday against Minnesota. I don’t believe the narrative that Mayfield is better without Odell Beckham jr., but I do think it is incredibly strange that those two just cannot get on the same page. Mayfield is still Cleveland’s franchise quarterback and will most likely command a healthy raise, north of $35 million, soon. Cleveland has assembled one of the most complete rosters in the NFL and can now re-focus and surround Mayfield with more weapons in the passing game. Whether you believe in Baker or not, you can’t argue that if Cleveland pays him they are going to have to make sure he performs well. The best way to do that is by giving him a new playmaker in the passing game. Garrett Wilson is arguably the best wide receiver in this draft class. Wilson is a gifted route runner fluid movement skills. He’s also a dynamic yards after catch threat as well.

19.) Tennessee Titans

Jordan Davis — Defensive Lineman — Georgia — 6’6-1/4” 340 lbs.

Tennessee still has issues on the defensive side of the ball. Currently ranked 26th in DVOA, per Football Outsiders, Tennessee must continue to add more talent alongside Jeffery Simmons. Bud Dupree signed a 5-year $85 million deal this off-season to pair with Simmons and Harold Landry. So far, Dupree has not provided anything for Tennessee as he works his way back from an ACL injury he suffered last season. Jordan Davis should provide Tennessee with a dominant nose tackle capable of clogging up the middle of the trenches every run play. However, Jordan Davis has also improved as a pass rusher and could legitimately be a three-down defensive lineman. Jon Robinson has had some misses in the draft lately, most notably 2020 first round pick Isaiah Wilson. Jordan Davis should provide a safe floor as a solid run defender in the middle of this defense with the potential to be a game wrecker in both the run game and as a pass rusher.

20.) Washington Football Team

DeMarvion Overshown — Linebacker — Texas — 6’2-3/8” 223 lbs.

I know, “Washington JUST took a linebacker in the first round last year!” I get it, I get it. However, DeMarvion Overshown is special. Overshown’s size and athleticism are hard to come by and rarely last past the first 20 picks. Overshown is a converted safety who is in his second season playing linebacker at the University of Texas, he’s already shown vast improvements as a tackler and has begun to trust his natural instincts. Overshown is great in pass coverage, using his length to erase throwing lanes. He has also shown to be a capable blitzer using his acceleration and bend to get around and through offensive lineman. Washington is in dire need of a franchise quarterback, I know. I’m afraid, like last year, they are in a dead-zone here though. There isn’t a quarterback in my opinion that is worthy of a Top-20 pick and instead Washington can work to get this defense back on-track by adding another young, talented front seven player.

21.) Buffalo Bills

Ikem Ekwonu — Offensive Lineman — N.C. State — 6’4” 320 lbs.

The Buffalo Bills have shown they value their defensive line. They have drafted four defensive linemen in the past three NFL drafts. Now Buffalo must address the other side of the trenches. Cody Ford has not been the answer at right guard or right tackle, like Brandon Beane hoped he would be. Ikem Ekwonu is a very similar player in terms of size (Cody Ford is – 6’3” 330lbs.). Ekwonu is the definition of a mauler in the run game, constantly blowing defensive linemen off of their spots. Ekwonu has the versatilityto play tackle or guard in the NFL, although Buffalo would most likely want to start him at right guard immediately. Buffalo will also be looking for another cornerback to try and pair with their star, Tre’Davious White.

22.) Carolina Panthers

Nicholas Petit-Frere — Offensive Tackle — Ohio State — 6’5-3/8” 315 lbs.

The Carolina Panthers might be one of the biggest surprises of the season thus far. Sam Darnold’s career has been rejuvenated by Matt Rhule and Joe Brady in Carolina. This roster is extremely young and promising, but they have numerous holes on the offensive line, specifically at left tackle. Nicholas Petit-Frere was previously Ohio States right tackle before switching over to the left side this season. Petit-Frere has proven so far that the switch has been a success. He has allowed zero sacks so far this season for Ohio State. Carolina will look to add more beef to their offensive and defensive lines throughout this draft to keep their moment from the early part of the 2021 season going.

23.) Green Bay Packers

Chris Olave — Wide Receiver — Ohio State — 6’0-1/2” 189 lbs.

If the Green Bay Packers actually trade Aaron Rodgers away this off-season like everyone thinks they are going to and Brian Gutekunst’s first draft pick after is a wide receiver, I think the internet will break. The pettiness that would take would be absolutely mind blowing and hilarious. In all seriousness though, Green Bay needs more talent at wide receiver. Especially if a quarterback with no starting experience is expected to lead this franchise to yet another playoff run and NFC conference championship. The Packers still have needs on the defensive line, at linebacker, and could use another cornerback (yes, even though Eric Stokes looks like a solid #2).

24.) Cincinnati Bengals

Darian Kinnard — Offensive Lineman — Kentucky — 6’5-3/8” 342 lbs.

Has Joe Burrow officially arrived? Burrow has been outstanding this year leading the Bengals to a (3-1) record, despite head coach Zac Taylor’s best efforts to lose more. It seemed like most fans were furious when Cincinnati opted to take Joe Burrow’s best friend and favorite wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase over left tackle Penei Sewell last April. Chase and Burrow have tried to prove those critics wrong as best as they could, as Chase has caught 17 passes for 297 yards and 4 touchdowns in the first four games. However, now Cincinnati has to add more talent to the offensive line. Burrow is on his way to becoming a star signal caller, but he needs help around him and this offensive line is still full of sieves. Darian Kinnard is a hulking power-player with incredible strength. Kinnard also has the feet to play tackle, although I Cincinnati will likely slide him into guard with Jonah Williams and Riley Reiff operating as the bookends.

25.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Trent McDuffie — Cornerback — Washington — 5’11-1/4” 193 lbs.

I was tempted to give the Buccaneers a quarterback to develop here, but they just drafted Kyle Trask in the second round last year (yuck). Instead I’ve opted to continue Jason Licht’s draft strategy of taking defensive backs early and often. Trent McDuffie is the next defensive back to come from Jimmy Lake and the Washington Huskies. McDuffie possesses high-end athleticism and instincts. He will excel in zone coverage schemes that let him play off-coverage, allowing him to make plays on the ball in the air and highlighting his acceleration and instincts. Tampa Bay is another roster that is very complete. However, you could argue every team in the NFL can afford to add defensive backs to their roster.

26.) Detroit Lions (via LAR)

George Karlaftis — Edge Defender — Purdue — 6’4-1/4” 275 lbs.

George Karlaftis’ unintentional slide in this 2022 NFL mock draft has officially ended. Karlaftis is an incredibly talented edge rusher who took the nation by storm his true freshman season, accumulating 7.5 sacks and 17 tackles for loss in 12 games played. Since then, Karlaftis has not put up those numbers, but it isn’t because he has regressed. Karlaftis is constantly double teamed and sometimes even triple teamed because he’s head and shoulders the best player on Purdue’s defensive line.

The Detroit Lions are nice beneficiaries here, as they passed on the top edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux earlier in the draft to take their future franchise quarterback. Detroit still has holes on the backend if their defense and at linebacker, but this team is coming together nicely. Dan Campbell seems like the right coach to take this franchise out of the gutter, finally.

27.) Denver Broncos

Sean Rhyan — Offensive Tackle — UCLA — 6’5” 320 lbs.

The Denver Broncos could be a team in the mix to trade for Aaron Rodgers after the 2021 season. They were the team most rumored to have been all-in on trading for Rodgers last off-season and it would make sense for them to be aggressive again. They have one of the best rosters in football if you ignore the quarterback position (no offense Teddy Bridgewater, all offense Drew Lock). Denver has one of the best defenses in the NFL coached by one of the best defensive minds, Vic Fangio. This team is tailor-made for Aaron Rodgers to come in and have complete control over the offense, similar to when Peyton Manning was in Denver. However, if Denver does keep this pick they need to continue to improve this offensive line. Sean Rhyan has been a great run blocker for Chip Kelly at UCLA and possesses the athleticism and feet to improve as a pass protector as well.

28.) Baltimore Ravens

Kingsley Enagbare — Edge Defender — South Carolina — 6’4” 265 lbs.

This is a classic Baltimore Ravens pick. Baltimore seems to always draft late in the first round but always seems to stay where they are and find value. Although edge rusher is hardly a need for Baltimore right now, especially after drafting Odafe Oweh last year (who is impressing early this season), Kingsley Enagbare is too talented to let go. Enagbare has been dominating college tackles this season, grading as PFF’s top pass rusher on the edge so far this season with a 93.7 pass rushing grade. Baltimore could use reinforcements at offensive line, especially if Alejandro Villanueva plays as bad as he has been at right tackle (although he’s improved since taking over at left tackle for Staley, he still isn’t great). Baltimore could also look at adding another linebacker here to pair with (or replace) Patrick Queen who has struggled to start his career.

29.) Dallas Cowboys

Jaquan Brisker — Safety — Penn State — 6’1-3/8” 204 lbs.

The Dallas Cowboys historically do not value the safety position. However, Dallas has to continue to upgrade this defense if they want to contend for a Super Bowl anytime soon. Jaquan Brisker gives them their best chance at finding an early contributor on defense this late in the first round. Brisker is a bruising safety who has a boom stick in his tool belt. He isn’t just a hard hitting safety though, coming in at #76 on Bruce Feldman’s Freaks List, Brisker reportedly ran a 4.07 shuttle time coupled with a 35-inch vertical. For context Tyreek Hill, one of the most fast and agile players in the NFL, ran a 4.06 shuttle at his pro day. Dallas drafted Micah Parsons last year to be their star linebacker, but may have stumbled upon a really good edge rusher when they tasked him to play on the edge more often while Demarcus Lawrence is injured. The Cowboys should continue to add talent at cornerback and along the defensive line, but this team is very talented.

30.) Los Angeles Chargers

Drake London — Wide Receiver — USC — 6’5” 210 lbs.

The Los Angeles Chargers are faced with a decision to re-sign Mike Williams this off-season or let him walk in free agency. Regardless of what they choose to do though, Drake London would be a welcomed addition to this offense led by budding superstar Justin Herbert. Drake London is a towering receiving threat, able to go up and get jump balls that defensive backs tasked to guard him could never reach. Not only is London a mismatch against cornerbacks, but he also is effective as a yards after the catch creator. Los Angeles has found their franchise quarterback and now has to make sure they surround him with enough weapons to compete with the likes of Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City. The Chargers can also look to add a cornerback or defensive tackle wherever they find value later in the draft.

31.) Las Vegas Raiders

Nakobe Dean — Linebacker — Georgia— 6’ 225 lbs.

The Raiders are BACK. Even after a tough loss to Los Angeles on Monday Night Football, Las Vegas remains the top team in the AFC due to their strength of schedule. Jon Gruden and Gus Bradley have got Derek Carr playing like an MVP and the defense finally looking like a competent unit, respectively. This defense is still lacking a true difference maker at linebacker though, Nakobe Dean can fix that. Dean plays like he’s stepping on hot coals, running sideline to sideline on every play. Dean is undersized for the position but has the athleticism, toughness, and character to be successful in the NFL anyway. The Raiders have some holes on the defensive line and at wide receiver that they can address in free agency of later in the draft.

32.) Arizona Cardinals

Daxton Hill — Safety — Michigan — 6’0-1/4” 192 lbs.

Through four weeks Kyler Murray has been the league MVP and Arizona’s offensive line has been the best pass blocking unit in the NFL. Kliff Kingsbury was talked about as maybe being in the hot seat if this offense didn’t pull it together, those rumors are now gone as we’re looking at the best offense in the NFL. Arizona still has their issues defensively, especially on the backend. With the sudden retirement of Malcolm Butler, Arizona was forced to start rookie fourth round pick Marco Wilson. With no great cornerback prospects available in the mock I’ve decided to give Arizona one of the best coverage safeties in the draft, Daxton Hill. Daxton Hill is an incredible athlete with the speed and quickness to break on balls and put fear in the minds of opposing quarterbacks. Arizona has invested heavily on their front seven with Chandler Jones, Isaiah Simmons, Zaven Collins, and J.J. Watt all starting. Budda Baker, Byron Murphy jr., and Jalen Thompson have all had success but Arizona would be wise to continue to add talent in their defensive backfield.
