The 2022 NFL Draft is a month away, which means it’s nearly Rookie Draft Season. Matt Bruening and Matt Fox are back with a two-round Rookie Superflex Mock. The picks marked MF are from Fox, and the ones marked MB are from Bruening. For those doing their own research, check out where these players went to get an idea of our thinking on current values.

1.01—Breece Hall, RB, Iowa State University

MF: His performance at the combine helped clarify his spot.

1.02—Matt Corral, QB, Mississippi

MB: I still have Corral as my highest-rated QB. As long as he gets first-round draft capital, he’ll continue to be my QB1.

1.03—Malik Willis, QB, Liberty

MF: Willis comes with questions, but he might have the most upside. It’s a big swing in a rough draft.

1.04—Sam Howell, QB, North Carolina

MB: Howell is a controversial QB. He has the talent to be a top 15 QB in the NFL, but he could also struggle. Draft capital will be significant here, but he graded out as my second QB.

1.05—Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State

MF: The QB market thins after Howell, so I’m going with my WR1.

1.06—Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas

MB: With my top three QBs gone and my WR1, I was torn between Walker and Burks here. Went with the physical specimen Burks.

1.07—Isaiah Spiller, RB, Texas A&M

MF: RBs are always at a premium, it feels like decent value at 7.

1.08—Kenneth Walker III, RB, Michigan State

MB: Kenneth Walker is my RB2, and if he falls this far, click draft player as fast as you can.

1.09—Drake London, WR, USC

MF: With the QB and RB groups at a spot where the value doesn’t line up, I go with London, a receiver with good potential.

1.10—Jameson Williams, WR, Alabama

MB: Jameson should still get decent draft capital. He was considered by many to be the best WR in this class before the injury.

1.11—Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State

MF: My sense is Olave will go somewhere early, which gives him a shot at value. It feels like a good pick up here.

1.12—George Pickens, WR, Georgia

MB: Pickens helped himself with his combine performance. He has the upside to be the best WR in this class.


2.01—Desmond Ridder, QB, Cincinnati

MF: It’s a big swing, but if you’re picking at 1, you need help.

2.02—Kenny Pickett, QB, Pittsburgh

MB: Most of the top-tier players are gone now. I’m taking Pickett here because his value is insulated in a SF league.

2.03—Skyy Moore, WR, Western Michigan

MF: It feels like Moore’s stock is rising, which could end up as great value.

2.04—Zamir White, RB, Georgia

MB: White is a good RB who likely won’t help you much in the receiving game. He’s a guy I’m willing to bet on in the second round.

2.05—Kyren Williams, RB, Notre Dame

MF: Maybe too high, maybe too low. The combine hurt him, but I’ll be interested to see what happens in the draft.

2.06—Carson Strong, QB, Nevada

MB: Strong could go higher or lower than this. It will all depend on his draft capital.

2.07—Rachaad White, RB, Arizona State

MF: In this range, it’s starting to feel like dart throws.

2.08—Khalil Shakir, WR, Boise State

MB: Shakir is a WR that graded out high for me. He’s someone I will take in the second round every time.

2.09—Trey McBride, TE, Colorado State

MF: It feels like the right range for the top TE in McBride.

2.10—James Cook, RB, Georgia

MB: Cook will never be a workhorse running back in the NFL. He can be explosive in the short area and is incredible in the receiving game. He’ll have a role in the NFL.

2.11—Christian Watson, WR, North Dakota State

MF: Watson could be a great value here, depending on where he lands.

2.12—Brian Robinson, Jr., RB, Alabama

MB: At this point in the draft, I’m taking players who could get some work and are one injury away from serious playing time. Brian Robinson Jr. is one of those players.
