Travon Walker
Round 1 - Pick 1
EDGE
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: C+
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 7
  • School: Georgia
  • Height:6' 5"
  • Weight: 275
Eric Edholm's Commentary
We’ll be debating this pick for years, passing on more proven commodities such as Aidan Hutchinson. An atypical No. 1 overall selection, Walker nonetheless possesses the raw power, freaky athletic traits and ideal length to be a star one day. But his pass-rush effectiveness remains an area that will require some development, so expecting big sack totals early on might be foolhardy. Can Walker be a franchise pillar? That remains to be seen.
Detroit
Lions
Aidan Hutchinson
Round 1 - Pick 2
EDGE
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: B+
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 1
  • School: Michigan
  • Height:6' 6"
  • Weight: 265
Eric Edholm's Commentary
The hometown kid is now a nearly instant Lions hero. No pressure? Well, Hutchinson looked completely in control during Michigan’s playoff drive and his own Heisman campaign and maintained and excellent level of play all season. He’s a good rusher and great run defender and becomes one of Dan Campbell’s key young guys.
Houston
Texans
Derek Stingley Jr.
Round 1 - Pick 3
CB
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: B
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 12
  • School: LSU
  • Height:6' 1"
  • Weight: 195
Eric Edholm's Commentary
This one started crystallizing a few weeks ago when the Texans were said to be looking hard at corner — and specifically at Stingley. His past two seasons have been forgettable and injury-plagued, but the talent is just too alluring here. Stingley covered Ja’Marr Chase every day in practice in 2019 and won a lot of those battles. Can he do it in the NFL? If he fails, it won’t be because of talent.
New York
Jets
Sauce Gardner
Round 1 - Pick 4
CB
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: B
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 4
  • School: Cincinnati
  • Height:6' 3"
  • Weight: 200
Eric Edholm's Commentary
It feels like the Jets knew the Texans were taking Stingley, so they knew if they wanted a top corner, they could not wait with the Giants coming up next. Gardner’s career production has been wild the past three years: 9 INTs, 0 TDs allowed. He’s a great fit as a zone corner in Robert Saleh’s defense, so it’s hard to gripe with the pick at all.
New York
Giants
Kayvon Thibodeaux
Round 1 - Pick 5
DE
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: B+
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 6
  • School: Oregon
  • Height:6' 5"
  • Weight: 258
Eric Edholm's Commentary
At the NFL combine, Thibodeaux was asked who his toughest interview was with. His answer: the Giants. They wanted to know what he was made of. The talent speaks for itself. Will he be too big for the Big Apple? First-year Giants GM Joe Schoen makes a bold bet on “no” with his first selection in the captain’s chair. Bold, bold maiden pick, but he’s the pass rusher the Giants need.
Carolina
Panthers
Ikem Ekwonu
Round 1 - Pick 6
OT
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: B-
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 2
  • School: N.C. State
  • Height:6' 4"
  • Weight: 320
Eric Edholm's Commentary
The Charlotte native will save on moving costs. And the Panthers clearly made the smart move here, taking OL help over reaching for a QB. Ekwonu’s pass protection, despite taking a jump in 2021, remains unrefined. But his upside is very high, starting with his pile-driving run blocking. He’s also a smart, charismatic young man with a great work ethic.
New York
Giants
Evan Neal
Round 1 - Pick 7(from Bears)
OT
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: B+
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 5
  • School: Alabama
  • Height:6' 7"
  • Weight: 350
Eric Edholm's Commentary
We thought they’d go OL first, then pass rusher, given the Panthers were on deck at No. 6. But they still get a top-tier talent who is actually more ready Day 1 than the player taken one spot ahead of him. Neal is a multi-position blocker with starting experience at both tackle spots and guard. He’s highly strong and explosive but lacks lateral quickness. But we love the pick, even if they went at it a bit oddly.
Atlanta
Falcons
Drake London
Round 1 - Pick 8
WR
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: C+
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 17
  • School: USC
  • Height:6' 5"
  • Weight: 210
Eric Edholm's Commentary
Once London worked out a few weeks ago following an injury that ended his 2021 season and prevented him from working out at the combine, the Falcons likely felt a lot better about this pairing. They’re forming a basketball team in Atlanta, with Kyle Pitts at the 5, London at the 4 and Marcus Mariota the point guard. This is a big, athletic duo that can win almost every jump ball imaginable. But is London the best WR option? Time will tell. Jameson Williams is tough to pass on, injury or not.
Seattle
Seahawks
Charles Cross
Round 1 - Pick 9(from Broncos)
OT
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: C+
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 18
  • School: Mississippi St.
  • Height:6' 5"
  • Weight: 310
Eric Edholm's Commentary
We have no problem with this pick. Cross wasn’t our favorite OT prospect, but he has sweet feet and is a natural pass protector now, even as a redshirt sophomore. But as a run blocker? We just don’t know. Is Pete Carroll going to start slinging the rock now that Russell Wilson is gone? It’s simply a departure from the type of tackle they typically have gone for.
New York
Jets
Garrett Wilson
Round 1 - Pick 10(from Seahawks)
WR
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: B+
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 9
  • School: Ohio St.
  • Height:6' 0"
  • Weight: 192
Eric Edholm's Commentary
It’s no shock they went receiver here, having struck out on Tyreek Hill and other potential upgrades. Wilson should step in as part of a four-WR group that includes Corey Davis, Elijah Moore and Braxton Berrios. Now Zach Wilson feels more like he did at BYU: with receiving options all over the field. I’d be shocked if Wilson isn’t at least a very respectable pass catcher.
New Orleans
Saints
Chris Olave
Round 1 - Pick 11(From Washington)
WR
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: B
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 14
  • School: Ohio St.
  • Height:6' 1"
  • Weight: 188
Eric Edholm's Commentary
Our first trade! The Saints wheeled into the 16 and 19 slots before the draft and landed this pick from the Commanders on the clock, sending Nos. 16, 98 and 110 overall to get it done. And they make it two straight Ohio State receivers off the board. Olave just feels made for the turf — a smooth glider who could put up great numbers with improved QB play in New Orleans. Are we sure Sean Payton doesn’t want to come back?
Detroit
Lions
Jameson Williams
Round 1 - Pick 12(From Minnesota)
WR
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: A-
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 11
  • School: Alabama
  • Height:6' 2"
  • Weight: 189
Eric Edholm's Commentary
Well, the Lions are rolling the dice in Vegas. Trading up into this spot is a big, bold move for GM Brad Holmes, and we’ve been saying for some time that they were going to add a receiver. But this isn’t the way we — or anyone else — imagined. Williams would have been our WR1 had it not been for the torn ACL, and Detroit is in no hurry to get him on the field. What a pivot here. The draft just hit a higher gear.
Philadelphia
Eagles
Jordan Davis
Round 1 - Pick 13(From Houston)
DT
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: B-
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 15
  • School: Georgia
  • Height:6' 6"
  • Weight: 340
Eric Edholm's Commentary
Leapfrogging the Ravens (a team heavily connected with Davis), the Eagles miss out on a receiver but land this draft’s unicorn. He’s a dancing bear with rare athleticism for a man this massive. Can he rush the passer? Play more than 30-35 snaps per game? We don’t know. But the Eagles haven’t had a player like this in recent memory. This is a boom-or-bust pick, but we feel pretty good about it. This can change the way teams attack the Eagles dramatically.
Baltimore
Ravens
Kyle Hamilton
Round 1 - Pick 14
S
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: A
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 3
  • School: Notre Dame
  • Height:6' 4"
  • Weight: 220
Eric Edholm's Commentary
Every year it seems the Ravens just let the draft come to them. How? We’re talking an annual draft pastime. Hamilton would have been a steal at 11; at 14, he’s grand larceny. He’ll be a Day 1 post safety who can move into the slot or box as needed. The Ravens didn’t make enough plays in the secondary last year. This pick will change that.
Houston
Texans
Kenyon Green
Round 1 - Pick 15(from Dolphins via Eagles)
OG
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: C-
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 20
  • School: Texas A&M
  • Height:6' 4"
  • Weight: 325
Eric Edholm's Commentary
Trading down earned Houston some more draft capital. But with a pass rusher on the board (Jermaine Johnson) whom we thought might be a nice fit there, the Texans instead take what we feel is a reach with Green. Nice player with toughness and four-position versatility. He’ll start inside right away, we suspect. But this was someone whom other teams felt could maybe last until deep in Round 1, perhaps farther.
Washington
Commanders
Jahan Dotson
Round 1 - Pick 16(from Colts via Eagles and Commanders)
WR
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: C+
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 32
  • School: Penn St.
  • Height:5' 11"
  • Weight: 184
Eric Edholm's Commentary
They did a lot of work on Drake London and the Ohio State receivers, yet they pivot to Dotson, who goes a touch higher than we imagined. Still, with the receivers flying off the board, they couldn’t afford to get cute. Dotson catches everything and has deep speed from inside or out. He has very good potential early on — if Washington can salvage Carson Wentz.
Los Angeles
Chargers
Zion Johnson
Round 1 - Pick 17
OG
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: B-
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 27
  • School: Boston Coll.
  • Height:6' 3"
  • Weight: 316
Eric Edholm's Commentary
This is a fascinating pairing, one we didn’t see coming. Johnson was a tackle and guard at BC, but most NFL scouts believed his best NFL spot clearly was inside, at either guard or center. But the Chargers’ biggest OL vacancy is at right tackle. Hmm. We’ll reserve judgment on the positional fit and laud Johnson: a smart, savvy, competitive and high-character blocker. Justin Herbert’s O-line gets better, but now we wait to hear where Johnson lines up.
Tennessee
Titans
Treylon Burks
Round 1 - Pick 18(From Philadelphia)
WR
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: C
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 26
  • School: Arkansas
  • Height:6' 3"
  • Weight: 225
Eric Edholm's Commentary
Wow, the Titans have traded A.J. Brown to get to this spot, and they add a player with a similar build in Burks, who is a big, physically blessed wideout who wins with force and determination. Some even have compared him to Brown, but we’re not so sure. Burks had a simple route tree in college, with many of his touches schemed up. Having Robert Woods as a teammate now helps, but Burks might not be ready for a typical starter’s role immediately.
New Orleans
Saints
Trevor Penning
Round 1 - Pick 19(from Eagles)
OT
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: B-
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 13
  • School: Northern Iowa
  • Height:6' 7"
  • Weight: 330
Eric Edholm's Commentary
Remember Kyle Turley? The Saints just drafted his modern-day doppelganger. Penning is big, seriously nasty and a pain in the butt to deal with as a defender. He needs work in pass pro and can be penalty-prone, and he steps into a big void with Terron Armstead gone. This is interesting, but he certainly fits from a need and temperament standpoint.
Pittsburgh
Steelers
Kenny Pickett
Round 1 - Pick 20
QB
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: B
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 31
  • School: Pittsburgh
  • Height:6' 3"
  • Weight: 220
Eric Edholm's Commentary
Thirty-nine years ago, the Steelers passed on Dan Marino. The reason? It was too close to home, they said. The Rooneys still run the show, and they won’t pass on this Pitt QB. There’s an argument to be made over whether Pickett has the upside to be better than Malik Willis down the road. But his college experience, elite competitiveness and solid athleticism and arm talent add up to a very reasonable pairing. Pickett could beat out Mitch Trubisky early on and start for years.
Kansas City
Chiefs
Trent McDuffie
Round 1 - Pick 21(From New England)
CB
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: B+
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 10
  • School: Washington
  • Height:5' 11"
  • Weight: 195
Eric Edholm's Commentary
This is not the Washington corner we thought they’d end up with, but McDuffie is a hyper-competitive, fast, man-cover corner with a compact frame and ball skills. We thought a pass rusher or receiver might be on the docket, but how can we argue with the trade up here to get one of our favorite players? McDuffie brings a Tyrann Mathieu-caliber energy, which will work in Kansas City.
Green Bay
Packers
Quay Walker
Round 1 - Pick 22(from Raiders)
LB
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: B-
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 40
  • School: Georgia
  • Height:6' 4"
  • Weight: 240
Eric Edholm's Commentary
Packers fans will be angered by a linebacker here, but Walker is a giant, stalking, athletically blessed future green-dot player whose instincts remain slightly under-developed. In time, though, he could be a monster, and the Packers have had a long-term vision with almost all their first-round picks under GM Brian Gutekunst.
Buffalo
Bills
Kaiir Elam
Round 1 - Pick 23(From Baltimore via Arizona)
CB
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: C+
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 45
  • School: Florida
  • Height:6' 2"
  • Weight: 196
Eric Edholm's Commentary
A short jump up here to take a long, talented zone/press corner who is not yet 21 years old. Elam has some playmaking chops but can be handsy in coverage. We thought this might be for a safety, but the Bills show that they do in fact value the CB2 spot, which was in some doubt. Elam wouldn’t have lasted much longer, but we see it as a slight reach.
Dallas
Cowboys
Tyler Smith
Round 1 - Pick 24
OT
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: C+
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 53
  • School: Tulsa
  • Height:6' 6"
  • Weight: 332
Eric Edholm's Commentary
The Tyler Smith buzz started in earnest a few months ago, but his stock really rose in recent weeks. We thought he might still get to Round 2, but with Zion Johnson — a popular Dallas pick — off the board, Smith likely was their next-rated OL prospect. He’s work in progress, no doubt, and quite penalty-prone, but could be dominant in time. He has rare back bend, power and aggressiveness.
Baltimore
Ravens
Tyler Linderbaum
Round 1 - Pick 25(from Bills)
C
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: B
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 25
  • School: Iowa
  • Height:6' 3"
  • Weight: 290
Eric Edholm's Commentary
GM Eric DeCosta didn’t even try to hide his love for Linderbaum at the NFL combine, comparing him to Marshal Yanda and calling him “the type of guy that can really be the centerpiece of your offensive line.” So much for subterfuge. The Kirk Ferentz connection clearly made this pick an easy one. The Ravens don’t care if you know their plans. They get good players one way or another.
New York
Jets
Jermaine Johnson II
Round 1 - Pick 26(From Tennessee)
DE
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: A
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 8
  • School: Florida St.
  • Height:6' 5"
  • Weight: 262
Eric Edholm's Commentary
We’re stunned at Johnson’s fall. He was the best EDGE at the Senior Bowl, consistently bringing the energy and terror for two impressive days. He’s not an elite pass rusher, but he attacks the ball very well, has a big motor and an alpha personality. With three first-rounders, the Jets have improved in three critical areas. Impressive stuff, Joe Douglas.
Jacksonville
Jaguars
Devin Lloyd
Round 1 - Pick 27(From Tampa Bay)
LB
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: B-
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 23
  • School: Utah
  • Height:6' 3"
  • Weight: 235
Eric Edholm's Commentary
We thought Lloyd would come off the board in the 25-35 range, and he lands with the Jaguars, who traded up to get to this spot. Lloyd is a three-down playmaker and box-score stuffer with good size and athleticism who can be a bit clunky and a tick slow to react at times. This is another building block for a Jaguars defense that needs new blood.
Green Bay
Packers
Devonte Wyatt
Round 1 - Pick 28
DT
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: C+
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 24
  • School: Georgia
  • Height:6' 3"
  • Weight: 307
Eric Edholm's Commentary
In our mock, we had Wyatt going to Green Bay with their first first-rounder, so it just takes a bit longer. Wyatt is a quick-off-the-snap defensive lineman who put it all together in his final season, projecting as a valuable energy piece and disruptor up front. In Green Bay, he’ll play multiple techniques and work into a starting role, likely as a 5-technique. But no receiver. Again. What is Aaron Rodgers drinking tonight?
New England
Patriots
Cole Strange
Round 1 - Pick 29(from 49ers via Dolphins and Chiefs)
OG
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: C-
  • School: Chattanooga
  • Height:6' 6"
  • Weight: 301
Eric Edholm's Commentary
Our 91st-ranked player, Strange screams Patriots … but also screams poor value. Of course, many people said the same thing when the Patriots took Logan Mankins in this same range many years ago. Strange is a highly intelligent, highly competitive interior blocker who might be the starting left guard from Day 1. But it’s a big jump in competition, and he was up and down at the Senior Bowl.
Kansas City
Chiefs
George Karlaftis
Round 1 - Pick 30
EDGE
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: B+
  • School: Purdue
  • Height:6' 4"
  • Weight: 275
Eric Edholm's Commentary
Kansas City is better on defense now with McDuffie and Karlaftis, who is their type of high-energy power rusher. He has a limitless reserve of energy and strong hands, although his all-around game remains a bit raw and underdeveloped.
Cincinnati
Bengals
Dax Hill
Round 1 - Pick 31
S
Position
School
  • Draft Grade: A-
  • Pre-Draft Rank: 16
  • School: Michigan
  • Height:6' 0"

Eric Edholm's Commentary
Love this fit. Hill can cover the slot and even be tried outside if the Bengals want. They addressed the offensive line in free agency, so the next logical spot was the secondary. Hill might be listed as a safety, but he can line up at multiple spots — in the box, deep or as the nickel. Excellent value here.
Minnesota
Vikings
Lewis Cine

S

Eric Edholm's Commentary
Low-key one of our favorite picks of Round 1. Trading down felt like the play for the Vikings at 12, but we had no idea they’d be able to go this far down and get a top-20 talent in Cine. He’ll pair with Harrison Smith as one of the best safety duos in the NFL. Outstanding first selection for Kwesi Adofo-Mensah. Cine will start for a decade.
