In the recent weeks, there have been a lot of questions about which players to avoid in the 2022 NFL Draft class. Every draft has some players who are selected highly only to becoming massive disappointments in the NFL. Here, we break down some potential busts for the 2022 NFL Draft.

Desmond Ridder, QB, Cincinnati
Some in the media have projected Ridder to be a first-round pick. While he has a good skill set with size, arm strength, and athleticism, he needs a lot of refinement as a pocket passer and must become more accurate for the NFL. Ridder could end up being a backup-caliber quarterback, and if he were to ends up an early-round pick, topping out as a backup would make him a bust.



Kyren Williams, RB, Notre Dame
Early on the in the draft process, there were some projections of Williams as one of the five top running back prospects. Those projections cooled after Williams ran slow times at the combine. Even when watching Notre Dame film, it was clear he lacks speed and is undersized. His combine results only proved that and also showed he doesn't have the powerful frame to make up for his lack of speed. Williams was a good college player in 2021, but I could see him not translating to the NFL.

David Bell, WR, Purdue
Some analysts are projecting Bell to be an early-round pick, and I think he could be a risky selection. Bell will likely be best as a possessional receiver in the NFL and will likely struggle to get separate from NFL cornerbacks. Bell could be more of a backup-caliber player without a defining trait like mismatch size or speed.



Thayor Munford, G, Ohio State
Munford could end up being a second-day pick in the 2022 NFL Draft because he is a solid blocker, but is not overly special and does not have a dominant trait. Munford might top out as a backup quality player, and that would not be a good value for a second-day draft choice.



Bernhard Raimann, OT, Central Michigan
Of the early-round tackle prospects, Raimann (6-6, 304) is the rawest of the bunch due to his late start in football and having only played offensive tackle for two years after switching from tight end in 2020. There are a lot of points of development for Raimann given his lack of experience, and he had problems in the pass-rushing one-on-ones at the Senior Bowl. He also has short arms - 33 inches - and needs to improve his technique overall. I could see Raimann struggling with pro pass rushers and needing serious developmental time. Some projections have Raimann in the first round, and he has some bust potential if he taken that high.
