Draft 2022- 3rd round: quarterbacks for Atlanta, Carolina and Tennessee!
65 – Jacksonville Jaguars: Luke Fortner, C, Kentucky
66 – Minnesota Vikings: Brian Asamoah, LB, Oklahoma
Mina returns to defense, and brings depth to their second curtain with Brian Asamoah.
67 – New York Giants: Joshua Ezeudu, OL, North Carolina
68 – Cleveland Browns: Martin Emerson, BC, Mississippi State
With their first choice of the draft, the Browns choose to bring depth to a cornerback position yet already rich in playmaker.
69 – Tennessee Titans: Nicholas Petit-Frere, OT, Ohio State
The Titans heal their line. A physical player, Nicholas Petit-Frere is also versatile and capable of playing both left and right.
70 – Jacksonville Jaguars: Chad Muma, LB, Wyoming
71 – Chicago Bears: Velus Jones, WR, Tennessee
Chicago desperately needed reinforcements at receiver to better surround Justin Fields. If he is not the best known of the vintage, Jones is extremely fast and also capable of bringing back a kick.
72 – Seattle Seahawks: Abraham Lucas, OT, Washington State
It was therefore enough for Russell Wilson to leave to see reinforcements on the offensive line. After Charles Cross with the 9th choice, the Seahawks continue their transformation with Abaraham Lucas.
73 – Indianapolis Colts: Jelani Woods, TE, Virginia
One more target for Matt Ryan. The Colts front office continues to put their veteran quarterback in the best possible position by strengthening his air squad.
74 – Atlanta Falcons: Desmond Ridder, QB, Cincinnati
Finally a selected quarterback. Kenny Pickett is no longer alone. The Falcons bet Desmond Ridder the Bearcats pitcher. With a powerful arm and also capable of gaining yards with his legs, Ridder is also inconstant and his room for improvement seems limited. Behind Marcus Mariota, he will have the opportunity to learn and seize opportunities.
75 – Houston Texans: Christian Harris, LB, Alabama
The Texans continue to load up on players. Able to play on 3 attempts, Christian Harris is a linebacker with great development possibilities.
76 – Baltimore Ravens: Travis Jones, DT, UConn
77 – Indianapolis Colts: Bernhard Raimann, OT, Central Michigan
The fall of Bernhard Raimainn finally stops, in Indianapolis. The Colts get an inexperienced player but with rare mobility for a tackle.
78 – Cleveland Browns: Alex Wright, DE, UAB
Alex Wright is a raw player with intriguing abilities. He’s going to have to work if he wants to win in Cleveland’s defensive line rotation.
79 – Los Angeles Chargers: JT Woods, Safety, Baylor
Without a second-round choice, the Chargers had to wait to select JT Woods. Baylor’s safety, interception machine, and a talented free safety whose association with Derwin James and Nasir Adderley has something to seduce and give smiles to LA supporters
80 – Denver Broncos: Greg Dulcich, TE, UCLA
The Broncos are holding Noah Fait’s successor. After sending the former Iowa player to the Seahawks in the trade for Russell Wilson, Denver was missing out on the position. With the addition of Dulcich, the franchise offers a prime target for its new quarterback. Fast, able to gain yards after reception, the UCLA player should quickly contribute to the Colorado attack.
81 – New York Giants: Cordale Flott, CB, LSU
A draft without a cornerback is not a draft for the Giants. With Cordale Flott, the GMen consolidate a little more depth in the position.
82 – Atlanta Falcons: DeAngelo Malone, Edge, Western Kentucky
A true college quarterback rusher, DeAngelo Malone is a very fast pass rusher but with a definite lack of physical power.
83 – Philadephia Eagles: Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia
The fall stops there. Announced as a certain first round, Nakobe Dean fell due to medical concerns related to his shoulder. Fantastic captain of the college champion defense. He knows how to blitz, cover and defend the run. Gladiator in the center of the field, the Eagles certainly realize one of the blows of the draft if the physical state of the linebacker does not hide a deeper problem.
84 – Pittsburgh Steelers: DeMarvin Leal, DL, Texas A&M
Another nice shot. DeMarvin Leal a time seen as a first round landed at the Steelers. A real disruptor, Leal knows how to put pressure on the opposing quarterback. If his combination was a little disappointing, he proved his potential and his talent on the pitch. With Cam Heyward and TJ Watt he will also be very well surrounded to fully blossom.
85 – New England Patriots: Marcus Jones, BC, Houston
Bill Belichick set his sights in the 3rd round on a specialist slot cornerback, Marcus Jones. His abilities as a special team returner can also be used to make a place for himself with the Pats.
86 – Tennessee Titans (via Raiders): Malik Willis, QB, Liberty
Another wait ends. Mali Willis, presented as the probable first quarterback to be called, is finally selected. The Titans are betting on this double threat quarterback, formidable on the ground and endowed with a very big arm. If his level and experience in a basic attack takes time and work, the Titans can afford the time to develop him behind Ryan Tannehill.
87 – Arizona Cardinals: Cameron Thomas, DE, San Diego State
Complete, versatile and productive, Cameron Thomas offers the Cardinals a full range in a position where there was a real need. Explosive and endowed with very good hands, Thomas will have to find his good position in the Arizona system.
88 – Dallas Cowboys: Jalen Tolbert, WR, South Alabama
After losing Amari Cooper in the offseason, the Cowboys get Jalen Tolbert back. The South Alabama receiver is a quality player with great potential.
89 – Buffalo Bills: Terrel Bernard, LB, Baylor
The Bills return to defense by selecting a player who will contribute in the rotation and act as an understudy behind the Edmunds-Milano duo. Terrel Bernard, tackle machine and also a quality quarterback hunter as proven by his 7.5 sacks in 2021.
90 – Las Vegas Raiders: Dylan Parham, OL, Memphis
Host of this draft, the Raiders had to wait a long time to select their first player in front of their public. With Dylan Parham, it is the logical choice of a reinforcement on the offensive line, a construction site for more than a year in Nevada.
91 – Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Rachaad White, RB, Arizona State
Despite the return of Leonard Fournette for 3 seasons, Tampa decides to strengthen its rider committee with Rachat White.
92 – Green Bay Packers: Sean Rhyan, OT, UCLA
After Billy Turner’s cut, reinforcements were expected on the offensive line. With Sean Rhyan, the Packers recover a player of the same ilk, capable of playing guard or tackle.
93 – San Francisco 49ers: Tyrion Davis-Price, RB, LSU
Kyle Shanahan continues to fill his running committee with Tyrion Davis-Price, a powerful running back, capable of breaking tackles and blocking in a passing situation.
94 – Panthers (via Patriots): Matt Corral, QB, Ole Miss
Carolina who initially had no picks this round traded a 2023 3rd rounder to be selected in the 3rd round this year. A desire to seize the opportunity Matt Corral, quarterback announced as a possible first round. Precise in the intermediate zones, with a good arm, the Ole Miss pitcher also knows how to use his legs and his physique to gain yards and score touchdowns. He has improved a lot over the past two seasons, especially in 2021. With Sam Darnold as starting quarterback, Corral could have his card to play quickly in the Panthers’ attack.
95 – Cincinnati Bengals: Zachary Carter, DE, Florida
Another defensive pick for the Bengals. After the secondary, Cincinnati strengthens its defensive line with Zachary Carter. Versatile, it can contribute both outdoors and indoors.
96 – Indianapolis Colts: Nick Cross, Safety, Maryland
The Colts have found a counterpart in Julian Blackmon. Extremely fast, as proven by his amazing time at the combine, he knows how to cover but also blitz and put pressure.
97 – Detroit Lions: Kerby Joseph, Safety, Ill.
The Lions improve their secondary with Kerby Joseph. Fast and able to read the game well, he will bring in a special team as soon as he arrives in the NFL.
98 – Washington Commanders: Brian Robinson, RB, Alabama
A reinforcement in the backfield to support Antonio Gibson with Brian Robinson. The Tide runner, extremely productive in 2021 with more than 1,300 yards and 14 touchdowns, will bring a physical touch to the capital’s running game.
99 – Cleveland Browns: David Bell, WR, Purdue
With Amari Cooper but without Jarvis Landry, the Browns had to bring more targets to DeShaun Watson. With David Bell, Cleveland offers a prime target for their new quarterback. A time billed as one of the best receivers in the class, Bell suffered from a disappointing draft process including his trick where his speed was a concern.
100 – Arizona Cardinals: Myjai Sanders, Edge, Cincinnati
The Desert Birds double the pass rusher position. After Cameron Thomas, the Cards’ do it again by selecting Myjai Sanders. A technical but light player, Arizona’s 34 system could help him flourish. Fast and effective against the race, it will have a minimum role to play in the rotation.
101 – New York Jets: Jeremy Ruckert, TE, Ohio State
The Jets continue to surround Zach Wilson. A receiver, a runner and now a tight end. Far from being the most productive, Ruckert has great potential and can bring to the block.
102 – Miami Dolphins: Channing Tindall, LB, Georgia
Another Georgia linebacker. For their first choice of this draft, the Dolphins opt for a reinforcement on the second curtain.
103 – Kansas City Chiefs: Leo Chenal, LB, Wisconsin
We continue to work on the weak points in Missouri. It is now the second curtain which is prioritized with Leo Chenal. A true leader and physical monster, capable of chasing the quarterback, he will form a young and intriguing trio with Gay and Bolton on the second curtain.
104 – Los Angeles Rams: Logan Bruss, OL, Wisconsin
As a result of their aggressive trade policy, the Rams are the last to choose a player in this draft. It’s towards the offensive line that Les Snead heads with Logan Bruss. With no sacks conceded in the last two seasons, he brings with him guarantees and reliability to protect Matt Stafford.
105 – San Francisco 49ers: Danny Gray, WR, SMU
San Francisco picks up a speedster with the final pick of the 3rd round. Danny Gray is an extremely lively player, capable of making big plays from 2022.
