Cincinnati Bengals 2022 first-round mock draft
Seahawks GM: Bennett
The Seattle Seahawks will entertain the idea of picking Malik Willis here if he is available, but evidently will pass. Drew Lock will a get a shot at this job next season, so they might as well get him some protection. Ikem Ekwonu is ranked by most experts as the best tackle in this class, getting him at pick 9 has tremendous value.
Reaction: Seattle should go offensive tackle, and if the Giants pass on Ekwonu, Seattle will pounce. If Giants take Ekwonu, Cross could be the pick here. – Rob
Jets GM: Rob
There are lots of need for the Jets, but if last year’s top pick Zach Wilson is to succeed, more weapons are needed. Chris Olave can help this Jets offense improve.
Reaction: The Jets get one of the best receivers in the draft with Olave and help Zach Wilson out in the process. – Alex
Commanders GM: Leigh
With wide receivers flying off the board already, the Commanders didn’t get their top option here, but they still landed a damn good in Drake London. The speedster out of USC will now team up with Terry McLaurin, giving the Commanders a scary duo at wideout.
Reaction: Drake London has traits you simply cannot teach. If he can get a little faster as his body continues to adapt to the pro-level, Washington will have a steal at pick #11. – Bennett
Giants GM: Alex
The Giants can afford to trade down and still end up with a high-quality player. In this draft, Travon Walker slid all the way down to the G-Men at pick No. 2, which would end up being a dream scenario for New York.
Reaction: The slide of Travon Walker comes to an end. While he is now the betting favorite to be selected #1 by Jacksonville, the Giants were able to trade back and still land one of the hottest names in the draft; great value for New York here. – Bennett
