NFL Draft News & Analysis

Final 2022 NFL Draft Big Board: PFF's Top 250 Prospects

1. EDGE Aidan Hutchinson, Michigan

The highest-graded edge defender in college football, Hutchinson has multiple ways to win with his blend of quicks and power. He’s a complete edge defender who excels against both the run and the pass.

2. CB Derek Stingley Jr., LSU

This ranking is banking a lot on what Stingley put on tape a long time ago, but it's not as if that talent went anywhere. He has allowed only a 41.1% completion percentage for his career and has been starting since his freshman year.

3. T Charles Cross, Mississippi State

After flashing traits in his first year as a starter in 2020, Cross became a dominant pass-protector in 2021. He allowed 44 pressures on 574 pass-blocking snaps in 2020 before giving up only 16 pressures on 719 pass-blocking snaps in 2021.

4. CB Ahmad Gardner, Cincinnati

Gardner never allowed a touchdown in his career despite starting since he was a true freshman. In 2021, he took his game to another level, surrendering only 131 yards in 14 games.

5. T Ikem Ekwonu, N.C. State

Ekwonu is the single most dominant run-blocking tackle in the country. His 18 big-time blocks in the run game this past season were seven more than the next-closest Power Five offensive lineman.

6. T Evan Neal, Alabama

The mammoth 6-foot-7, 350-pounder is one of the most imposing specimens ever to grace this planet, and he moves like a man 50 pounds lighter. He allowed only 24 pressures over the past two years between left and right tackle.

7. EDGE Kayvon Thibodeaux, Oregon

Thibodeaux has an elite first step combined with an ideal frame for the position. While he lacks refinement, that combination still led to a 91.5 PFF pass-rushing grade in 2021.

8. S Kyle Hamilton, Notre Dame

At 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, Hamilton is a modern hybrid defender who can do whatever is asked of him. While he missed Notre Dame's final five games in 2021 with a minor knee injury, he came down with three picks and three pass breakups in his first seven outings.

9. WR Jameson Williams, Alabama

It’s a shame Williams tore his ACL in the national championship game, as his tape put him firmly in the mix for WR1. He’s still the best deep threat in the class.

10. EDGE George Karlaftis, Purdue

Karlaftis is a versatile iron man who can do almost anything a team could ask of him. He played at least 49 snaps in all but one game this past season and finished with a 90.6 PFF pass-rushing grade.

11. CB Trent McDuffie, Washington

Outside of length, McDuffie has everything you could want from a high-end cornerback. At only 5-foot-11, he plays consistently bigger than his listed size. He allowed only 16 catches from 36 targets for 111 yards with no scores and five pass breakups in 2021.

12. EDGE Travon Walker, Georgia

Walker is an elite physical specimen for a 6-foot-5, 275-pounder who even dropped into coverage this past season and managed a pass breakup. He's still figuring out how to rush the passer, but you can't teach what he has.

13. WR Drake London, USC

It's a shame London's 2021 season ended with a broken ankle after only eight games because he was on an unmatched statistical tear, racking up 88 catches for 1,084 yards and seven scores over that span. He's a massive 6-foot-5, 210-pounder who still led college football with 19 contested catches.

14. WR Garrett Wilson, Ohio State

Wilson's ability to generate separation is the best in the class. He’s also produced at a high level from both the slot (73.4% of his snaps in 2020) and outside (82.9% of his snaps in 2021).

15. LB Devin Lloyd, Utah

There may be no better all-around linebacker in the class. Lloyd can take on blocks, blitz and cover tight ends at a high level, which is why he earned a 90.2 grade this past year with above-average grades in every facet.

16. C Tyler Linderbaum, Iowa

Linderbaum is the best center prospect we've seen in the PFF College era. He was already the highest-graded center in the country in 2020, but he took his game to new heights in 2021, earning a 95.4 overall grade.

17. DI Devonte Wyatt, Georgia

Between the two Georgia defensive tackles, Wyatt is the far more explosive athlete, and it showed as a pass-rusher, where he finished with an 84.0 grade. He was dominant at the Senior Bowl.

18. T Bernhard Raimann, Central Michigan

Two years ago, Raimann was playing tight end. Now, he's got a legitimate shot to be a first-round pick. He earned the second-highest grade of any offensive lineman this past season and allowed only 10 pressures.

19. LB Nakobe Dean, Georgia

Dean's range at the linebacker position is unparalleled in this draft class. He’s not only straight-line fast, but he also processes and reacts with elite quickness.

20. DI Jordan Davis, Georgia

Davis is a one-trick pony, but it’s one impressive trick. The 6-foot-6, 360-pound defensive tackle will not be moved in the run game.

21. WR Chris Olave, Ohio State

One of the best route-runners in college football, Olave is one of the most consistent downfield threats in the class. In total, 13 of his 65 catches ended in scores last season.

22. WR Skyy Moore, Western Michigan

Moore has the elite shiftiness that plays so well at the receiver position. Whether it's shaking press coverage or breaking an FBS-high 26 tackles last year, he will make defenders miss with ease.

23. CB Andrew Booth Jr., Clemson

Booth has some of the best feet in the draft class, but he got exposed a tad too often for our liking. He gave up 29 catches from 46 targets for 312 yards in his first full year as a starter.

24. G Zion Johnson, Boston College

Johnson started his career at Davidson before transferring and starting the past three years at guard for Boston College. His physicality took a noticeable leap in 2021, and he allowed only six pressures.

25. T Tyler Smith, Tulsa

Smith's run-blocking tape is a sight to behold. Neither Neal nor Ekwonu led the FBS in big-time blocks last season; it was Smith. He likely ends up at guard and is a work in progress as a pass protector, but you can't teach his power.

26. S Lewis Cine, Georgia

Cine was the biggest riser down the stretch for the Georgia defense, and he’s one heck of a tackler — for his career, he missed only 11 tackles on 159 attempts.

27. DI Travis Jones, UConn

Jones was the lone bright spot on Connecticut's roster this season. At 6-foot-5 and 333 pounds, he's a monstrous, space-eating nose tackle, but he can be a little more than that. He racked up 25 pressures and 21 run stops on the season and played well at the Senior Bowl.

28. WR George Pickens, Georgia

Pickens tore his ACL last spring and only came back for Georgia in the last game of the regular season. He was a potential WR1 after a massive freshman year but never built upon it.

29. CB Kaiir Elam, Florida

Elam is a long, physical corner who shut down some of the SEC's best talent. Despite seven penalties, he still allowed only 19 catches from 36 targets for 191 yards last season.

30. QB Malik Willis, Liberty

Willis is an electric playmaker. However, the Liberty quarterback is still far too much of a roller coaster from game to game. He did, however, have the second-highest big-time throw rate we've ever charted (11.0%).

31. CB Jalen Pitre, Baylor

Pitre was a massive reason for the Bears' defensive success in 2021. He led all defensive backs with 47 stops on the season while playing slot corner in Dave Aranda's defense.

32. EDGE Jermaine Johnson II, Florida State

Due to how well Johnson performed at the Senior Bowl, he's unlikely to be a non-factor in the NFL. Moreover, he's one of the best edge-setters in the class, with 23 run stops and 14 sacks in 2021.

33. EDGE Arnold Ebiketie, Penn State

Ebiketie transferred from Temple to Penn State and proved his 2020 production was no fluke. He beat up on quality tackles en route to a 90.5 pass-rushing grade and 52 pressures.

34. QB Sam Howell, North Carolina

Howell may have taken a step back as a passer, but he proved to be a legitimate threat as a runner in 2021. He broke an absurd 63 tackles and ran for 1,072 yards this past season.

35. T Trevor Penning, Northern Iowa

Penning is yet another uber-physical run-blocker at the position. The 6-foot-7, 321-pounder moves people with ease. His 99.9 run-blocking grade — albeit against mainly FCS competition — is the highest we've ever charted.

36. LB Leo Chenal, Wisconsin

Chenal is going to thrive in man blitz-heavy schemes. He packs a punch as a downhill player, as he can light up offensive linemen with ease. His 94.1 run-defense grade wasn't too far behind Micah Parsons‘ (94.8) PFF college record.

37. CB Daxton Hill, Michigan

Hill showed off his versatility by playing mainly slot for the Wolverines' defense. Still, he’ll be a deep safety in the NFL, and he possesses some of the class' best speed at the position.

38. EDGE Nik Bonitto, Oklahoma

Bonitto may be a designated pass-rusher at the NFL level, but he'll be a weapon in that regard from Day 1. He was college football's most productive pass-rusher on a per-snap basis over the past two seasons, earning a 93.6 pass-rushing grade in 2020 and a 92.5 pass-rushing grade in 2021.

39. G Kenyon Green, Texas A&M

Green will not only be coveted for his absurd movement skills for a 325-pounder but also because he started at every single offensive line position except center in 2021. He can get the job done at either tackle or guard.

40. S Jaquan Brisker, Penn State

Brisker is an incredibly sound safety who will be coveted by teams with specific box roles. He earned an 89.5 coverage grade in a career year this past fall.

41. QB Desmond Ridder, Cincinnati

Ridder's four years at the helm of the Bearcats' offense make him one of the most experienced passers in the class. He improved every year en route to a career-high 90.7 grade in 2021.

42. QB Kenny Pickett, Pittsburgh

The biggest riser at the quarterback position, Pickett didn't earn a single sub-70.0 game grade all year. After managing only 10 big-time throws in 2020, Pickett totaled 29 in 2021. In his fourth year as a starter, Pickett looked decidedly different.

43. EDGE Drake Jackson, USC

Before his late-season injury, Jackson proved that he had taken a significant next step in his development. He improved his 66.6 pass-rushing grade as a sophomore to 87.7 in 2021.

44. EDGE Josh Paschal, Kentucky

Paschal has a unique body type for the edge at 6-foot-3 and 278 pounds. He's a leverage demon who lived in opponents' backfields last year en route to a Power Five-leading 12.4% run-stop rate.

45. LB Quay Walker, Georgia

Walker is one of the best run-and-hit linebackers in the class. Give him the freedom to play fast, and he'll excel. That's because he's both a speedy 240 pounds and one of the best tacklers in the class, having missed only seven times on 138 career attempts.

46. WR Treylon Burks, Arkansas

Burks' combination of size (6-foot-3, 225 pounds) and speed is unrivaled in the class. He racked up 1,100 yards and 11 scores last season. The true junior should be a vertical weapon in the NFL.

47. EDGE Boye Mafe, Minnesota

Mafe was a massive riser after he earned the highest pass-rushing grade among edge defenders during the Senior Bowl practices. He's an ascending player who possesses one of the best get-offs in the class.

48. LB Brian Asamoah, Oklahoma

Asamoah is undersized at 6-foot-1 and 228 pounds, but he possesses sideline-to-sideline range. His processing skills took massive steps forward in 2021, causing his grade to jump from 57.1 to 76.3.

49. T Abraham Lucas, Washington State

Lucas still needs some refinement in pass protection, but he saw it all with the pass-heavy Cougars in his career. He played 2,195 pass-blocking snaps across four years at Washington State.

50. EDGE David Ojabo, Michigan

Ojabo had played only 26 career snaps before 2021, but he made his presence felt in a big way this season, earning an 86.9 pass-rushing grade on 300 pass-rushing snaps. Given his physical tools, the Michigan product is still only scratching the surface of his potential.

51. LB Troy Andersen, Montana State

Andersen is a converted running back and quarterback who, in his lone full season at linebacker, racked up an absurd 67 stops. There's no telling what he could develop into with more reps at the position.

52. EDGE Kingsley Enagbare, South Carolina

Enagbare was one of the highest-graded pass-rushers in the country over the past two seasons, recording an 89.2 pass-rushing grade in 2020 and a 92.5 mark in 2021. While he’s not the kind of athlete who hears his name called early, Enagbare has the violent hands to be productive in the NFL.

53. QB Matt Corral, Ole Miss

Corral lost his top weapons from 2020 but didn’t see his game slip this fall. He also protected the ball a lot better, recording only 10 turnover-worthy plays all season.

54. WR Jalen Tolbert, South Alabama

Tolbert is one of the best big-play threats in college football. His 16 deep receptions ranked fifth in all of college football in 2021.

55. RB Kenneth Walker III, Michigan State

RB1 checking in. Walker went from relative unknown to the best back in the country. He led all of college football with 89 broken tackles this past season, including 20 against Miami alone.

56. WR Jahan Dotson, Penn State

Dotson is one of the most difficult receivers to cover in the class. While he has some size concerns at only 5-foot-11 and 184 pounds, he played through contact more than enough to alleviate any worries. He dropped only two of his 93 catchable targets last season.

57. RB Breece Hall, Iowa State

Iowa State may have taken a step backward, but Hall was as strong as ever in 2021. In fact, he raised his broken tackle total to 74 after shedding 63 tackles last year. He has an all-around skill set and NFL size at 6-foot-1 and 220 pounds.

58. CB Kyler Gordon, Washington

Gordon is a two-time Bruce Feldman's Freaks List member and played like one this season. He played both outside cornerback and slot cornerback in 2021, earning an 89.6 coverage grade.

59. CB Roger McCreary, Auburn

McCreary is an ultra-smooth cornerback who rarely cedes much separation. He was battle-tested with 75 targets but allowed only 34 catches while mixing in 13 pass breakups. His lack of length is concerning if he wants to stick on the outside.

60. TE Trey McBride, Colorado State

McBride put up an all-time season for the tight end position. In 12 games, he racked up 1,125 yards on 91 catches, which was over one-third of Colorado State's passing yardage this past season. Everyone knew the ball was coming his way, and he still dominated.

61. S Nick Cross, Maryland

Unlike pretty much everyone else blazing 4.3s at the NFL Scouting Combine, Cross ran his 4.34 at a hefty 212 pounds. The former track star can straight up fly, and his range in a single-high defense will be coveted.

62. T Luke Goedeke, Central Michigan

The other half of college football's best tackle duo from last year, Goedeke Is a very steady run-blocker who likely projects best to guard at the next level. His 94.3 run-blocking grade in 2021 was among the top marks in the nation.

63. LB Chad Muma, Wyoming

Muma was one of the most productive defenders in all of college football in 2021, generating 68 total defensive stops, three picks and 21 pressures for the Cowboys. At 6-foot-3 and 242 pounds, he has legit NFL size and athleticism.

64. T Zach Tom, Wake Forest

While some believe Tom should kick inside due to play-strength concerns, his mirroring ability can help him stick at tackle. He earned the highest pass-blocking grade in the FBS last year.

65. CB Cam Taylor-Britt, Nebraska

Taylor-Britt is one of the most physical cornerbacks in the draft class and possesses top-notch range, as well. He could even be viewed as a safety for certain teams.

66. T Jamaree Salyer, Georgia

Salyer played all over the Bulldogs' offensive line in his career, but he's firmly an interior lineman in the NFL. He has some of the strongest hands in pass protection in the class and allowed only four pressures in 2021.

67. G Dylan Parham, Memphis

Parham is an athletic interior offensive lineman who played well at multiple positions over his college career. He earned a 90.6 overall grade at right tackle in 2020 before putting up a 78.8 mark at right guard in 2021. He'll end up at the latter or center in the NFL.

68. QB Carson Strong, Nevada

No quarterback in this top 100 shouldered a bigger load as a passer. Strong had a six-game stretch toward the end of the 2021 season where he dropped back to pass over 50 times in every game. Still, he finished with a career-high 89.9 passing grade this past season.

69. CB Marcus Jones, Houston

Jones is not only the best kick/punt returner in the draft but also a playmaking, all-around cornerback. He picked off five passes and broke up 12 others in 2021.

70. TE Greg Dulcich, UCLA

Dulcich is a former walk-on who's one of the best all-around athletes for a tight end in the draft. He's an ascending player who has matured by leaps and bounds physically since he got to UCLA.

71. S Bryan Cook, Cincinnati

Cook is one of the most assignment-sure safeties and won't be missing many tackles. He whiffed only seven times on 100 attempts in 2021.

72. DI Logan Hall, Houston

Hall is a bit of an oddity in a number of ways. He rings in at 6-foot-6 and 260 pounds yet played as mainly a three-technique for Houston. Even with the ideal frame for an edge defender, he still gets the job done against the run on the interior and earned a 78.0 run-defense grade this past season.

73. S Kerby Joseph, Illinois

Joseph is a ball-hawking safety with ultra-long arms that can affect the catch point. The 6-foot Joseph's wingspan reaches almost 6-foot-8, and he used every bit of that to pick off five passes last season.

74. WR John Metchie III, Alabama

Metchie is one of the most polished route-runners in the draft class. It's why he hauled in 96 catches for 1,142 yards with eight scores in 2021. An ACL tear suffered in the SEC championship game throws a wrench into his evaluation, but he's a safe bet when healthy.

75. WR Christian Watson, North Dakota State

The NFL Scouting Combine king is more than just a high-level testing athlete. He's a super flexible 6-foot-4, 208-pound receiver who can adjust to balls easily outside his frame. The drop issues and ball tracking are a tad concerning, however, as Watson dropped 16 passes on 120 career catchable targets.

76. EDGE DeMarvin Leal, Texas A&M

Leal was a top-10 player on the preseason draft board, but he didn't improve as much as we hoped. In fact, his run0defense and pass-rushing grades took steps backward in 2021. He's a gifted athlete for a 6-foot-4, 290-pounder, but that lack of development is worrisome.

77. T Kellen Diesch, Arizona State

Diesch was one of the highest-graded Power Five tackles in the country this past season and didn't lose much in pass protection, as he allowed multiple pressures only once in 2021 and gave up all of seven in total.

78. EDGE Cameron Thomas, San Diego State

While Thomas played like a versatile jumbo defensive end at San Diego State, he showed up at only 264 pounds at the Senior Bowl and then didn't practice all week. Considering his best reps often came from the interior, that's a touch concerning.

79. T Darian Kinnard, Kentucky

Kinnard is one of the most accomplished run-blockers at the tackle position in college football. Even though he may end up at guard, he earned 89.0-plus run-blocking grades over the past three seasons.

80. C Dohnovan West, Arizona State

West started ever since his freshman year in 2019. While he played guard in 2020, he starred at center this past season and likely profiles best to that position in the NFL.

81. EDGE Dominique Robinson, Miami (OH)

Robinson is one diced-up 250-pounder. He may have earned just a 69.2 pass-rushing grade last season, but it was only his second year playing defense after switching from wide receiver. That's not a transition you see every day.

82. WR Kyle Philips, UCLA

The top slot-only option in the draft class. Philips wasn't featured much at UCLA but posted the highest grade of any receiver throughout the week of practices at the East-West Shrine Bowl.

83. EDGE Alex Wright, UAB

Wright is a big, physical edge who is only just starting to tap into his NFL-ready frame. He earned a 91.1 pass-rushing grade in 2021.

84. DI Perrion Winfrey, Oklahoma

Winfrey can get upfield with the best of them. While that translated in the pass rush, as he earned a 79.3 grade in that regard, Winfrey is still too easily moved in the run game. He's likely a three-technique only at the next level.

85. CB Tariq Woolen, UTSA

Woolen has a unique physical skill set that hasn't yet been seen in NFL history. There aren't many 6-foot-4, 205-pound cornerbacks in the first place, and there are precisely zero with 4.26-second 40-yard dash times. He's been playing cornerback for only two years and already made massive strides.

86. IOL Cole Strange, Chattanooga

It doesn't take long to pick out Strange along the offensive line when watching Chattanooga's tape. He has elite explosiveness for an interior lineman. His 78.8 overall grade against Kentucky this past year leaves a lot to be excited about what he could be.

87. WR Calvin Austin III, Memphis

He may be a gadget player at 5-foot-8 and 170 pounds, but Austin can be one of the best in that mold in the NFL. He put up the most impressive testing numbers of any receiver at the combine and averaged 7.2 yards after the catch per reception last year.

88. T Max Mitchell, Louisiana

Mitchell was the highest-graded tackle in all of college football in 2021. He earned a 94.8 overall grade while playing right tackle for the Ragin' Cajuns after allowing only 13 pressures across 430 pass-blocking snaps.

89. EDGE DeAngelo Malone, Western Kentucky

Malone is a one-trick sub-package rusher who can bring some juice to any NFL team's pass rush. He racked up 180 pressures in his career at Western Kentucky.

90. T Sean Rhyan, UCLA

Rhyan is a physical run-blocker who currently plays tackle for UCLA but likely profiles best at guard in the NFL. He took a massive step forward in 2021, with his overall grade going from 73.9 to 83.7.

91. EDGE Sam Williams, Ole Miss

Williams boasts elite speed for the edge position with a number of different moves in his toolbox already. He took a massive leap in 2021 to earn a 90.2 pass-rushing grade.

92. CB Jalyn Armour-Davis, Alabama

Only one year of starting experience combined with an extensive injury history will scare some, but Armour-Davis allowed just 290 yards in all of 2021. He has scheme-versatile traits for the next level.

93. C Cam Jurgens, Nebraska

The most explosive center prospect in the class, Jurgens has tools that suggest a limitless ceiling, but his tape and 71.4 overall grade in 2021 suggest he needs to be more consistent.

94. DI Phidarian Mathis, Alabama

Mathis is a plug-and-play run defender at the next level with the kind of length to two-gap consistently. He graded out as an above-average run defender for four straight seasons in college.

95. RB Dameon Pierce, Florida

Pierce may not have handled a massive workload in college, but the man was as effective as it gets when he did touch the ball. His 93.5 rushing grade led the FBS in 2021, and he broke 39 tackles on 100 attempts.

96. LB Christian Harris, Alabama

Harris is one of the most physical linebackers in the class and relishes the ability to hit anyone on the other side of the ball. His struggles come in coverage, where he allowed nearly 1,000 yards over the past two seasons.

97. WR Danny Gray, SMU

Gray is the best budget vertical threat in the draft class. He put up a 4.33-second 40-yard dash at the combine and was underutilized on tape at SMU.

98. WR Alec Pierce, Cincinnati

Pierce isn't your traditional vertical threat at 6-foot-3 and 208 pounds. He can stack cornerbacks with ease and did so to the tune of 13 deep receptions last year.

99. CB Damarri Mathis, Pittsburgh

Mathis is an explosive and physical cornerback. He may even be too physical after tallying 17 penalties across the past two seasons.

100. WR Romeo Doubs, Nevada

Doubs was Carson Strong's top target for the Wolf Pack the past two seasons and went over 1,000 yards in each. He has good size at 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds and consistently separates down the field.

101. RB James Cook, Georgia

Cook's scouting report reads almost identically to his brother Dalvin's, minus around 15 pounds. That size deficiency is the only thing keeping him from joining the top group of running backs in the class.

102. WR Khalil Shakir, Boise State

Shakir was a human highlight reel for the Broncos. His body control and hands are the stuff of legend. He likely profiles best from the slot after putting up over 1,000 yards there in 2021.

103. G Marquis Hayes, Oklahoma

One of the best pass protectors along the interior offensive line in the class, Hayes uses his hands exceptionally well and allowed only 35 pressures in three years as a college starter.

104. CB Cordale Flott, LSU

Flott was a surprise to come out early as a skinny slot corner in LSU's defense. He plays above his weight class, though, and earned an 84.8 coverage grade in 2021.

105. C Luke Fortner, Kentucky

Fortner is a burly center with experience starting at all three interior positions. He was one of the most consistent centers in the FBS in 2021, posting an 85.0 overall grade.

106. TE Jelani Woods, Virginia

Woods is one heck of an athletic specimen at 6-foot-7 and 260 pounds. He's still developing as a receiver after spending the first four years of his college career as a blocking tight end at Oklahoma State before breaking out at Virginia.

107. QB Bailey Zappe, Western Kentucky

Zappe broke the FBS passing yardage (5,940) and touchdown (62) records in 2021. He can operate a high-volume passing offense, but can he handle NFL pressure? Zappe was pressured on an FBS-low 12.9% of his dropbacks in 2021.

108. CB Martin Emerson, Mississippi State

Emerson possesses ideal size for the cornerback position at the next level and was exceptional at putting caps on opposing receivers in college. He allowed only one catch of 25-plus yards last season.

109. TE James Mitchell, Virginia Tech

Mitchell has been forgotten in the tight end class after tearing his ACL in Week 2 of 2021. He possesses some of the best natural receiving talent in the class and is a more-than-willing blocker on tape.

110. T Braxton Jones, Southern Utah

Jones put up dominant tape at Southern Utah en route to a 93.9 overall grade. He combines an egregiously long wingspan with some legit explosiveness off the line.

111. T Logan Bruss, Wisconsin

Bruss is yet another tackle-guard convert in a class rife with them. His plus hand usage and balance led him to an 82.5 overall grade at tackle in 2021.

112. S Dane Belton, Iowa

Belton is a young, ascending ball hawk on the back end. Filling the slot for Iowa last year, he nabbed five picks and broke up eight more passes.

113. S Tycen Anderson, Toledo

Anderson is one of the best all-around athletes in this year's safety class. While not a particularly instinctive player, he can fill a number of roles and not look out of place.

114. TE Jeremy Ruckert, Ohio State

Ruckert is arguably the best blocking tight end in the draft class and has uber-reliable ball skills. He dropped only two passes on 56 catchable targets in his college career.

115. LB Channing Tindall, Georgia

Tindall is a true sideline-to-sideline linebacker. He can chase down the fastest of running backs. However, he's still a work in progress in coverage and didn't tally a single interception or pass breakup in his college career.

116. RB Zamir White, Georgia

White is a violent runner with one of the best combinations of size and explosiveness in the draft class. His no-nonsense running style helped him average 3.6 yards after contact per attempt in 2021.

117. C Joshua Williams, UNC-Pembroke

Williams is making a massive leap up in competition from Division II to the NFL, but he's got the goods to do so. NFL teams will covet his length and rare fluidity at the position.

118. LB Brandon Smith, Penn State

Smith is a complete athletic projection. He has top-notch natural coverage skills for a linebacker his size, but everything else is a work in progress.

119. EDGE Myjai Sanders, Cincinnati

Sanders' weight fluctuated wildly in the pre-draft process, and he sat on some pretty mediocre testing from the combine. He's a twitched-up pass-rusher on tape, but he's inconsistent, as well.

120. T Nicholas Petit-Frere, Ohio State

Petit-Frere looked like a first-rounder against the bottom-feeders on his schedule and undraftable against top talents. Fourteen of his 26 allowed pressures came against Penn State (Arnold Ebiketie) and Michigan (Aidan Hutchinson/David Ojabo) in 2021.

121. T Rasheed Walker, Penn State

Walker looks every bit a starting NFL offensive tackle until he has to sustain a block. His PFF grade in 2021 (60.0) failed to build on his marks in previous seasons.

122. CB Zyon McCollum, Sam Houston State

You won't find a better all-around athlete at the cornerback position in the draft class. McCollum still allowed 371 yards into his coverage last year against FCS competition, though.

123. WR David Bell, Purdue

Bell is a physical and productive receiver with nearly 3,000 yards in his college career. His 4.65-second 40-yard dash will limit him in the NFL, however.

124. RB Rachaad White, Arizona State

White has some of the best natural talent with the ball in his hands in the draft class. It's why he scored 20 times and broke 52 tackles on 225 collegiate carries. He just needs to rein in his freelancing style.

125. WR Wan'Dale Robinson, Kentucky

Robinson is one of the best gadget players in the class and can be a vertical weapon out of the slot. He caught 16 deep balls in 2021.

126. WR Kevin Austin Jr., Notre Dame

Austin is one heck of a testing athlete, but that athleticism didn't show up nearly enough on the field. He is still talented at the catch point, racking up the most contested deep receptions in college football last year (nine).

127. LB Darrian Beavers, Cincinnati

Beavers is a strongside linebacker who can take on blocks at the next level. Just don't expect a sideline-to-sideline player.

128. T Matt Waletzko, North Dakota

Waletzko's developmental traits are as good as you'll see in this tackle class. With a 7-foot-1 wingspan and nimble feet, he's the project NFL teams want.

129. LB Terrel Bernard, Baylor

Bernard may be undersized at 220 pounds, but his play style can make up for it. He already held up between the tackles for Baylor in 2021, with 53 stops.

130. DI Matthew Butler, Tennessee

Butler is an ascending three-technique who can disrupt both the passing and running games. His 76.7 overall grade this past season was a career-high by a good margin.

131. LB Damone Clark, LSU

Clark would be 50 spots higher on this big board were it not for a spinal fusion surgery that will keep him sidelined in his rookie season. He ticks the size and athleticism boxes wholesale, with only a 7.1% missed tackle rate over his college career.

132. CB JoJo Domann, Nebraska

Domann may be listed as a linebacker, but he's a former safety who played in the slot for Nebraska. With how good he was in that role (87.8 coverage grade in 2021), keeping him there may be an NFL team's best bet.

133. G Joshua Ezeudu, North Carolina

Ezeudu split time between left tackle and left guard for the Tar Heels, but he profiles better as a guard in the NFL. He earned a 77.8 overall grade in 2021.

134. TE Cade Otton, Washington

Otton is one of the best all-around blockers in the draft class, although he was underutilized in Washington's passing game. He never recorded more than 344 yards in a single season.

135. RB Pierre Strong Jr., South Dakota State

Strong is a home-run hitter whose 4.37 speed qualifies as fast no matter his competition level. He still needs to run with more physicality to have an every-down role in the NFL.

136. G Ed Ingram, LSU

Ingram was a starter for the Tigers as a true freshman in 2017. This past year was easily his best as a pass protector, taking home an 82.6 grade in that regard.

137. T Spencer Burford, UTSA

Burford is still just 21 years old after four years as a starter for UTSA. He never allowed more than 15 pressures in a season over his college career.

138. CB Alontae Taylor, Tennessee

Taylor has size, speed and experience against top competition in his favor as a four-year starter. He broke out this past season with an 83.1 overall grade.

139. CB Kalon Barnes, Baylor

Barnes is the fastest man in the 2022 NFL Draft. His 4.23-second 40-yard dash shows up on tape. Still, he had too many coverage lapses and allowed over 19.0 yards per reception across the past two years.

140. WR Justyn Ross, Clemson

Ross' extensive injury history sidetracked what was a promising career after he led the nation in yards per route as a true freshman. He didn't notch 1,000 yards in a season after that.

141. RB Tyler Allgeier, BYU

Allgeier has a very NFL-translatable game with his size and decisive running style. He averaged 4.4 yards after contact per attempt for his career at BYU.

142. TE Daniel Bellinger, San Diego State

Bellinger is a well-rounded athlete who ticks all the physical boxes for the position. He went woefully underutilized for the Aztecs, with only 767 yards in three seasons as a starter.

143. G Josh Sills, Oklahoma State

Sills is a burly guard who pass-blocked at a high level at both West Virginia and Oklahoma State. He's played all five positions at some point in his football career.

144. RB Kyren Williams, Notre Dame

Williams is undersized and not particularly athletic, but for the third-down role he'd fill, it may not be that important. He has the best combination of pass-protecting prowess and receiving ability in the class.

145. EDGE Eyioma Uwazurike, Iowa State

Uwazurike is a long, versatile defensive tackle who can fill any alignment between the tackles. He's got some power to his hands and racked up 43 pressures last season.

146. RB Brian Robinson Jr., Alabama

Robinson is the top short-yardage bruiser in the draft class. After sitting behind Najee Harris for four years, he broke out with 1,343 yards and 14 scores last season.

147. G Lecitus Smith, Virginia Tech

Smith is a former tight end who still moves with that sort of coordination. He's not particularly long but still held up well in pass protection, allowing only 40 career pressures in four seasons.

148. TE Chigoziem Okonkwo, Maryland

Okonkwo blazed the fastest 40 time of any tight end at the combine and is the kind of athlete for the position who can win in space. He broke 14 tackles on 76 catches in his college career.

149. DI Neil Farrell Jr., LSU

Farrell had a breakout season in 2021, as he dominated on the nose with an 89.9 run-defense grade. He's a bit on the older side, though, and turns 24 in September.

150. RB Isaiah Spiller, Texas A&M

Spiller is still young (turns 21 in August) yet already racked up 3,000 yards in three seasons with the Aggies. His pre-draft testing left a lot to be desired for a bell-cow type of back, though.

151. G Thayer Munford, Ohio State
