2022 NFL Draft live updates: Travon Walker taken first by Jacksonville Jaguars – live! | NFL


15. Kenyon Green, Guardsman, Texas A&M

The Texans take Texas A&M guard Kenyon Green in one of the first “okay, sure” selections in the draft.

Next, the Houston Texans, with the No. 15 pick they received from the Eagles, via the Miami Dolphins. I feel like I need to start drawing graphics here.

Profile: Kyle Hamilton, Security, Notre Dame. The 6-foot-4 safety had 138 tackles in two years as a starter at Notre Dame. The problem, however, is that his 2021 campaign only lasted seven games after suffering a knee injury (“a pinched fat pad”) on October 23. However, NFL scouts can’t resist an archetypal “good character” story like that of an injured Hamilton, a team captain, wearing an earpiece on the sidelines to stay involved in Notre Dame games.

14. Kyle Hamilton, Security, Notre Dame

At number 14, the Baltimore Ravens take the best player available. It looks like Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton had a chance fall here.

The Baltimore Ravens decide not to make any trades and simply submit their selection for the 14th overall pick.

13. Jordan Davis, defensive tackle, Georgia

The Philadelphia Eagles traded for…Georgia defensive lineman Jordan Davis. However, a solid player doesn’t seem like the kind you go out of your way to trade for.

Why are they playing “Sweet Caroline?” It’s our thing here in Boston. And even we hate it.

Okay, so now everyone has decided to get involved in the trades. The Philadelphia Eagles moved up to 13th place, which previously belonged to both the Houston Texans and the Cleveland Browns.

I don’t get Stingley Jr. at No. 3. Big reach for me. While there’s definitely a need in the high school, Houston needs to set Mills up to succeed. Taking Ekwonu or Neal would have given him reliable protection.

This is sure to be one of the most questionable moves of this first round.

Profile: Jameson Williams, wide receiver, Alabama. Williams suffered a torn ACL in the national championship game, which could have landed him on the boards for some teams. Still, the high school track star can also act as a kick returner (he returned two for touchdowns his senior year for the Crimson Tide).

The Detroit Lions select Jameson Williams, a wide receiver from Alabama, after their trade with Minnesota (details below).

The Detroit Lions trade!

The Lions are not done today, they moved to number 12 after a trade with the Minnesota Vikings.

We have the details of the trade: the Saints must have really, really wanted Olave.

11. Chris Olave, wide receiver, Ohio State

After the longest Amazon Prime promo in the world, the Saints finally announce their selection. With the eleventh pick, the New Orleans Saints select Ohio State wide receiver Chris Olave, officially ending my streak of players I wrote about picking.

Washington commanders lower trade

Well, apparently they decided to trade from the 11th pick, so instead, the New Orleans Saints are in.

No details yet.

I don’t want to worry anyone but I think the Jets just made two good selections? normal world.

And now the Washington Commanders (which I think should have remained the Washington Football Team) have a decision to make with the eleventh pick.

Profile: Garrett Wilson, wide receiver, Ohio State. In three seasons at Ohio State, Wilson is gone for 23 career touchdowns. In 2020, he had four straight 100-yard receiving games — only one other Buckeye has ever done that. Possibly the best offensive player, at least as a scoring threat, in this year’s draft. He’s had a few drops and isn’t a polished blocker, but you can work with that as an NFL team.

The Jets are going with Wilson with the number 10 pick, which essentially means that Wilson and London will forever be compared to each other.

And, no, you’re not caught in a time warp, the Jets pick here again at No. 10, a pick they received from the Seattle Seahawks.

Paging O. Henry

Awesome – the Seahawks finally drafted the pure pass-blocking LT they needed to protect Russell Wilson! I can’t wait for the sea to come[taps earpiece]

Profile: Charles Cross, offensive tackle, Mississippi State. Cross was my “most likely to be taken way too soon” candidate of the draft, but number nine feels about right. Cross has 22 starts under his belt, but he has all the physical gifts that allow coaches to imagine what he could do, as opposed to how little he did. On his defense, he didn’t drop a quarterback hit in the 12 games he played last season.

9. Charles Cross, offensive tackle, Mississippi State

Well, the Seahawks will jump on the Falcons’ curious pick, Drake London, and go with tackle Charles Cross.

The Seattle Seahawks, who received this Denver Broncos draft pick in trade from Russell Wilson, made their selection at number nine.

The Seattle Seahawks are now on the clock with the ninth pick, which means I managed to have something pre-written on the top eight picks of the 2022 NFL Draft. That’s my personal Super Bowl championship. .

Profile: Drake London, wide receiver, USC. In a first-round class that doesn’t expect to have many fantasy stars, Drake London has it all from the name. He’s not terribly fast, but the 6-foot-4 in London has numbers that have boosted his draft stock over the past two weeks: His 88 catches and 1,084 receiving yards last year were more than Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave, who are his main competition at receiver. here.

8. Drake London, wide receiver, USC

Oh, there’s a left field pick. The Atlanta Falcons select USC wide receiver Drake London. I would have thought Garrett Wilson would be higher on their roster as far as receivers go.

The Atlanta Falcons are on the clock with the eighth overall pick. I’m going to guess Mississippi State is going after Charles Cross here.

Profile: Evan Neal, offensive tackle, Alabama. Neal gives you versatility: he started at right and left tackle, for a total of 40 games. That’s a lot of high-pressure experience, especially since playing for Alabama often feels like it could count as the NFL’s minor leaguers. Neal has both size and speed and he feels like he’s going just about anywhere.

7. Evan Neal, offensive tackle, Alabama

The Giants are back on the clock and they quickly salvaged the other big tackle on the board from Evan Neal with the seventh pick.

Random note: The show gave us one of our first behind-the-scenes looks where Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett prepares for what could be a long night. His girlfriend spent the whole time on camera scrolling her phone with a “how long are we going to be stuck here?” look at his face.

It’s the kind of reality TV stuff I love about NFL Draft shows.

Profile: Ikem Ekwonu, offensive tackle, North Carolina State. It seems to be a toss-up between Ekwonu and Evan Neal when it comes to the best attacking tackle in this group. Looks like last season’s NFL playoffs highlighted the importance of keeping your quarterback up, so expect plenty of teams to take advantage of this unsexy draft by taking steps to solidify the line. o this draft. We could do worse than snatch Ekmonu, a unanimous All-American who ended his college career being named the ACC’s top tackler.

6. Ikem Ekwonu, offensive tackle, North Carolina State

The Carolina Panthers are indeed taking the first offensive player of the 2022 draft by selecting North Carolina State tackle Ikem Ekwonu. The Panthers were definitely a team that desperately needed help on the offensive line and they have the best player available for that purpose.

That’s five straight picks without an offensive player being selected, which is basically the story of this first round in a nutshell. Let’s see if the Carolina Panthers change that trend with the sixth pick.

Profile: Kayvon Thibodeaux, Edge Rusher, Oregon. Concerns over an early departure from the combine, as well as the fact that he missed part of last season, caused him to drop several false plans. Still, Thibodeaux is one of the most talented defensive players in the draft and had the talent to be first overall: the ceiling is super high here.
