While there is no sure-fire hope for the quarterback entering the 2022 NFL Draft, there is one player who is changing the franchise; Oregon defensive end Kavon Thibodeaux, who is talked about in the same vein as another No.1 passer, Myles Garrett.
There is an intriguing group of quarterbacks who could become first-round selections, including Liberty’s Malik Willis, Mississippi’s Matt Corral and Pittsburgh’s Kenny Pickett. While anything can happen by next April, Spencer Rattler and Sam Howell saw their stock project take a hit in 2021.
Along with Thibodeaux, Aidan Hutchinson of Michigan and George Karlaftis of Purdue could be solid consolation prizes for teams looking for a solid presence in the immediate term.
LSU cornerback Derek Stingley could be the first defensive back in the table in a draft that could be a bit lighter on playing DBs.
