The NFL Draft is eight months away, but the players who will hear their names called in April will be evaluated from the film they’re putting out now. My draft board will evolve until April, but these are my top 75 players heading into the 2022 Season.

Players 1-10

Bryce Young - Alabama - NFL DraftBryce Young sees the game unlike any quarterback we’ve seen in recent classes. He’s the frontrunner for the #1 overall pick.

Jalen Carter - Georgia - NFL DraftFor the second straight year, Jalen Carter will be the best player on Georgia’s defensive line. Last season, he led Power 5 Defensive Linemen with a 90.0 PFF Pass Rushing Grade.

Myles Murphy - Clemson - NFL DraftAt 6’5, 275, Myles Murphy is impossible to miss on film. Assuming he builds on his 42 pressure, 9 sack Sophomore Year, Murphy won’t make it out of the Top 5.  CJ Stroud - Ohio State - NFL DraftOhio State has failed to produce high quality NFL Quarterbacks, but CJ Stroud is more aggressive attacking downfield than Haskins, and more confident under pressure than Justin Fields. His upside gives him the potential to surpass Bryce Young by the end of the season.

Will Anderson - Alabama - NFL DraftLast year, Will Anderson led all FBS defenders with 82 pressures and 15 sacks. His 33 run stops ranked 2nd in the Power 5. He’s the most complete defensive player in college football, and undoubtedly a Top-5 pick.

Broderick Jones - Georgia - NFL DraftBroderick Jones was the 11th ranked player in the 247Sports Composite, and he earned a 78.8 PFF Grade as a Sophomore. Teams in need of a pass protector will value his combination of length and balance. 

Bryan Bresee - Clemson - NFL DraftBryan Bresee was the highest ranked player in the 2020 Class. He lines up all over a loaded Clemson front, and uses his length as well as any college defender. 

Siaki Ika - Baylor - NFL DraftAs a 358 lb nose tackle, Siaki Ika had 33 pressures and 6 sacks in 2021. As defenses transition to more two-high coverages, players like Ika will become more valuable in the NFL Draft.

Jared Verse - Florida State - NFL DraftAn Albany transfer, Jared Verse is having no issues adjusting to the increase in competition level. In Week 1, Verse dominated LSU’s offensive line with 7 pressures and 2 sacks.

Paris Johnson - Ohio State - NFL DraftParis Johnson Jr. is a nimble left tackle with a prototypical frame. As a Sophomore he earned a 79.1 PFF Grade. He looked very comfortable in his first start at left tackle, and should be one of the first offensive linemen selected in the NFL Draft.
