Today, we wanted to highlight a few prospects who will headline the 2022 NFL Draft and their ideal landing spots.
Evan Neal to the Jacksonville Jaguars:
As an organization, the Jacksonville Jaguars prioritize drafting players from major universities. It doesn’t get more major in college football than Alabama.
The Jaguars just drafted Trevor Lawrence #1 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, and he has been running for his life throughout his rookie season.
The Jaguars recognize their most likely path to consistent success is on the right arm of Lawrence, and they need to do everything in their power to keep him upright.
Evan Neal is a monstrous draft prospect, who will be able to step in on day one and start at the NFL level. Neal has experience playing on both sides of the line, so he brings versatility to the Jaguars offensive line that needs more than one piece to become a finished product.
Evan Neal is a perfect match for what the Jaguars need and what they look for in their evaluation process. If Neal has not been drafted by the time the Jaguars are on the clock, they will rush to the podium to make the selection.
Jordan Davis to the Los Angeles Chargers:
Jordan Davis literally and figuratively stands out from other interior defensive lineman prospects in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Jordan Davis is a monster who has been dominating SEC competition all season long, propelling the Georgia Bulldogs to the best defense we have seen in college football in over a decade.
Davis won’t offer much to a pass-rush, but you cannot run at the big man without getting swallowed up.
The Los Angeles Chargers have not been able to stop anyone from running the ball on them all season long. The Chargers’ lack of run defense will eventually eliminate them in 2021.
If you put Jordan Davis on the Chargers, he would immediately rectify their primary deficiency and make them immediate title contenders.
Jameson Williams to the Las Vegas Raiders:
Following the unfortunate incidents surrounding 2nd-year wide receiver Henry Ruggs III and his eventual release from the Raiders, Las Vegas has not been the same team offensively.
The Raiders tried to replace Ruggs’ impact on the offense with DeSean Jackson, who is on his last leg as an NFL wide receiver.
Having the speed element to the Raiders’ offense is vital. It opens up the intermediate passing game for All-Pro TE Darren Waller. It also takes an extra defender out of the box and assists the Raiders’ rushing attack.
Jameson Williams has emerged as the most explosive receiver in college football, capable of lifting the top off a defense at the NFL level.
Some have been slow to come around on Jameson Williams’ NFL potential. Don’t allow that to be you–Williams is a legit 1st round talent and an ideal fit for a Raiders team looking to replace the all-important speed element.
Andrew Booth Jr. to the Philadelphia Eagles:
The Eagles have three 1st round selections in the 2022 NFL Draft. If they stay put and make these selections, I bet at least one focuses on improving their defensive backfield.
Eagles fans can dream of Derek Stingley, but their picks (their own, the Dolphins, and the Colts) have likely played themselves out of the LSU cornerbacks range. Andrew Booth Jr. has been up and down, but you can’t argue his physical archetype.
Andrew Booth Jr. has all of the physical traits that the Eagles traditionally prioritize, and with some seasoning, could very well be on Stingley’s level.
