  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Derion Kendrick, CB, Georgia
    The Jaguars have yet to address cornerback in this mock, and I’m sure they’ll want to do that during the 2022 NFL Draft.

  2. Detroit Lions: Delarrin Turner-Yell, S, Oklahoma
    The Lions brought in more safeties to top-30 visits than any other position.

  3. New York Giants: Daniel Wright, S, Alabama
    The Giants should be looking to add some much-needed secondary depth.

  4. New England Patriots: Neil Farrell, DT, LSU
    The Patriots could acquire some personnel on the defensive line to help them stuff the run.

  5. Minnesota Vikings: Smoke Monday, S, Auburn
    The Vikings could address safety as early as No. 12 overall with Kyle Hamilton. They’ll need depth if they don’t find a new starter.

    Smoke Monday has great tackling ability.

  6. Buffalo Bills: Baylon Spector, LB, Clemson
    Buffalo’s linebacking corps always seems to fall apart when Matt Milano gets hurt, so better depth would be nice.

    Pick change; previously Tyler Goodson, RB

  7. Chicago Bears: Daniel Hardy, DE, Montana State
    The Bears obviously need edge-rushing help in the wake of the Khalil Mack trade.

    Pick change; previously Josh Jobe, CB

  8. San Francisco 49ers: Jaylen Watson, CB, Washington State
    The 49ers seem likely to double up at cornerback, given their woes there last year.

  9. Jacksonville Jaguars: Josh Ali, WR, Kentucky
    The Jaguars may add to their receiving corps late in the draft, just to make sure Trevor Lawrence has all the weapons he needs.

  10. Washington Redskins: Otito Ogbonnia, DT, UCLA
    The Redskins will probably look to add some defensive line depth after losing Matt Ioannidis.

    Pick change; previously Cole Strange, G

  11. Atlanta Falcons: Kalia Davis, LB, Central Florida
    The Falcons lost some talent at linebacker this offseason, so they’ll need to find replacements.

    Pick change; previously Xavier Newman-Johnson, G

  12. Minnesota Vikings: Josh Jobe, CB, Alabama
    The Vikings could stand to add more depth at cornerback, given their problems at the position.

    Josh Jobe is a big, athletic cornerback with tremendous upside.

    Pick change; previously Jermaine Waller, CB

  13. Minnesota Vikings: Zach VanValkenburg, DE, Iowa
    Minnesota will also be looking for depth at edge rusher, even after acquiring Za’Darius Smith.

    Pick change; previously Cameron Goode, LB

  14. Dallas Cowboys: Malik Davis, RB, Florida
    Ezekiel Elliott may not last much longer in Dallas, given his decline in production, so the Cowboys may want to find some depth behind Tony Pollard.

  15. New Orleans Saints: Damarion Williams, CB, Houston
    The Saints have yet to address the secondary, which is something they’ll have to do at some point.

  16. Los Angeles Chargers: Jaivon Heiligh, WR, Coastal Carolina
    The Chargers will be looking for a speedy threat at receiver at some point.

  17. Baltimore Ravens: Damone Clark, LB, LSU
    Damone Clark would be a second-round pick under normal circumstances. Unfortunately, spinal surgery will push him into late-round or UDFA territory.

  18. Jacksonville Jaguars: Leon O’Neal Jr., S, Texas A&M
    Here’s more secondary depth for the Jaguars, who will need to stop Matt Ryan and A.J. Brown to compete for the divisional title.

  19. Jacksonville Jaguars: Micah McFadden, LB, Indiana
    Jacksonville’s linebacking corps has been horrible since Telvin Smith retired. Multiple players are needed.

  20. Carolina Panthers: Jerome Ford, RB, Cincinnati
    The Panthers have met with a number of running backs this month, so they’ll likely draft one at some point, given Christian McCaffrey’s injury issues.

  21. New England Patriots: Chase Lucas, CB, Arizona State
    The Patriots are really hurting at cornerback, especially when it comes to depth, so they could draft three players at the position.

  22. Arizona Cardinals: Jermaine Waller, CB, Virginia Tech
    The Cardinals could easily address cornerback earlier than this, given their need at the position.

    Jermaine Waller has been a ballhawking cornerback in 2021, notching three interceptions in the early stages of the season.

    Pick change; previously Kyren Williams, RB

  23. Cleveland Browns: Tre Turner, WR, Virginia Tech
    It wouldn’t be a surprise if the Browns doubled up at receiver.

  24. Buffalo Bills: Mike Woods, WR, Oklahoma
    Jamison Crowder can’t be trusted to stay healthy, so the Bills may take a receiver on Day 3.

  25. Tennessee Titans: Daniel Bellinger, TE, San Diego State
    It wouldn’t surprise me if the Titans added multiple tight ends; they’ve really investigated the position this offseason.

  26. Houston Texans: Myron Cunningham, OT, Arkansas
    The Texans could use some better offensive line depth to protect either Davis Mills or whomever they pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

  27. Denver Broncos: Chris Owens, G/C/OT, Alabama
    The Broncos are looking for a versatile offensive lineman for depth purposes.

    Pick change; previously Avery Roberts, LB

  28. Houston Texans: Tyree Johnson, DE/OLB, Texas A&M
    The Texans acquired an edge rusher earlier in this mock, but they’ll have to find more pass-rushing help.

  29. Pittsburgh Steelers: Joey Blount, S, Virginia
    The Steelers could stand to add some depth in their secondary.

  30. Cincinnati Bengals: Pierre Strong, RB, South Dakota State
    The Bengals could stand to add a better backup behind Joe Mixon.

    Pick change; previously Eric Johnson, DT

  31. New England Patriots: Emeka Emezie, WR, N.C. State
    New England traded for DeVante Parker, but the team is still expected to address receiver in the 2022 NFL Draft.

  32. Los Angeles Rams: Leonard Johnson, CB, Duke
    The Rams are looking into acquiring another cornerback via free agency. If they don’t, they could take a corner with this pick.

  33. Los Angeles Rams: D’Vonte Price, RB, Florida International
    The Rams have shown interest in bolstering their running back depth.

    D’Vonte Price has a nice combination of size and quickness.

    Pick change; previously Neil Farrell, DT

  34. Atlanta Falcons: Xavier Newman-Johnson, G, Baylor
    The Falcons could stand to draft multiple offensive linemen, given their blocking problems.

    Pick change; previously Xavier Newman-Johnson, G

  35. San Angeles Chargers: Keidron Smith, CB, Ole Miss
    The Chargers could easily address their cornerback situation earlier than this.

  36. Arizona Cardinals: Cameron Goode, LB, California
    Here’s some linebacker depth and special teams help for the Cardinals at the end of the sixth round.

    Pick change; previously Chris Owens, G/C/OT

  37. Indianapolis Colts: Tariquios Tisdale, DE, Ole Miss
    The Colts could stand to add another edge rusher after struggling to get to the quarterback last year.

  38. Detroit Lions: Devin Harper, LB, Oklahoma State
    The Lions could obtain linebacker help earlier than this, but they have so many needs.

  39. Los Angeles Rams: Nick Grant, S, Virginia
    Here’s some more secondary help for the Rams, who will need to strengthen that area.

    Nick Grant is a tall and rangy safety.

    Pick change; previously Hassan Haskins, RB

  40. Tennessee Titans: Tyreke Smith, DE/OLB, Ohio State
    The Titans have brought multiple edge rushers in for top-30 visits, so they’ll likely address this area at some point.

    Pick change; previously Max Borghi, RB

  41. San Francisco 49ers: Josh Johnson, WR/RB, Tulsa
    Deebo Samuel removed all mention of the 49ers on social media, so San Francisco may try to find a replacement.

  42. San Francisco 49ers: Jason Poe, G, Mercer
    The 49ers lost Laken Tomlinson this offseason, so a guard will be needed at some point.
