The 2022 NFL Draft is almost here so let’s get our final Pac-12-focused mock draft out there.

The final weeks have seen some top Conference prospects start to climb back up boards and it looks like there should be a good chunk of Pac-12 players go off the board pretty quickly.

For this final mock, we’ve expanded to three full rounds, and of course, we put the focus on the Pac-12 players we think go in the first three rounds.


First Round

1. Jacksonville – Travon Walker, Defensive End, Georgia

2. Detroit – Aidan Hutchinson, Defensive End, Michigan

3. Houston – Ikem Ekwonu, Tackle, NC State

4. Jets – Kayvon Thibodeaux, Defensive End, Oregon

Thibodeaux seems to have come full circle in the draft process after getting questioned and dropping in mocks the past few months.

His talent looks to be too hard for teams in the Top 5-10 to pass on, especially the New York teams that have two very high picks. The first two picks being DEs will also help get him off the board super early.

5. Giants – Evan Neal, Tackle, Alabama

6. Carolina – Charles Cross, Tackle, Mississippi State

7. Giants – Ahmad Gardner, Cornerback, Cincinnati

8. Atlanta – Garrett Wilson, Wide Receiver, Ohio State

9. Seattle – Malik Willis, Quarterback, Liberty

10. Jets – Drake London, Wide Receiver, USC

London seems to be settling at the top of the WR board in a very strong WR class.

His size sets him apart from most of the other top options available and a lot of teams need playmaker at WR. I think that gets him off the board in the Top 10.

11. Washington – Kyle Hamilton, Safety, Notre Dame

12. Minnesota – Derek Stingley Jr., Cornerback, LSU

13. Houston – Daxton Hill, Safety, Michigan

14. Baltimore – Jermaine Johnson II, Defensive End, Florida State

Washington’s Trent McDuffie | Alika Jenner/Getty Images

15. Philadelphia – Trent McDuffie, Cornerback, Washington

The Husky product seems to be settling comfortably right behind Gardner and Stingley at CB. A lot of teams need a corner at this section of the First Round so I don’t expect him to last very long in the first round.

16. New Orleans – Trevor Penning, Tackle, Northern Iowa

17. Chargers – Jameson Williams, Wide Receiver, Alabama

18. Philadelphia – Jordan Davis, Defensive Tackle, Georgia

19. New Orleans – Chris Olave, Wide Receiver, Ohio State

20. Pittsburgh – Andrew Booth Jr., Cornerback, Clemson

21. New England – Kaiir Elam, Cornerback, Florida

22. Green Bay – Treylon Burks, Wide Receiver, Arkansas

23. Arizona – George Karlaftis, Defensive End, Purdue

24. Dallas – Zion Johnson, Guard, Boston College

Utah’s Devin Lloyd | Chris Gardner/Getty Images

25. Buffalo – Devin Lloyd, Linebacker, Utah

The Utah star is the first linebacker off the board and drops a bit because teams just don’t need linebackers this year as much as they usually do.

He’s one of my favorite pure football players in this draft and a huge steal at this point for the Bills.

26. Tennessee – Kenyon Green, Guard, Texas A&M

27. Tampa Bay – Tyler Linderbaum, Center, Iowa

28. Green Bay – DeVonte Wyatt, Defensive Tackle, Georgia

29. Kansas City – Jahan Dotson, Wide Receiver, Penn State

Kyler Gordon | Dean Rutz/Seattle Times

30. Kansas City – Kyler Gordon, Cornerback, Washington

Gordon is getting a lot of momentum for the first round as the draft approaches. I think he gets snagged by a team late in the round who needs a cornerback.

31. Cincinnati – Tyler Smith, Tackle, Tulsa

32. Detroit – Kenny Pickett, Quarterback, Pitt


Second Round

33. Jacksonville – Bernhard Raimann, Tackle, Central Michigan

34. Detroit – George Pickens, Wide Receiver, Georgia

35. Jets – Roger McCreary, Cornerback, Auburn

36. Giants – Boye Mafe, Defensive End, Minnesota

37. Houston – Matt Corral, Quarterback, Mississippi

38. Jets – Daniel Faalele, Tackle, Minnesota

39. Chicago – Darian Kinnard, Guard, Kentucky

40. Seattle – Nakobe Dean, Linebacker, Georgia

41. Seattle – Jalen Pitre, Cornerback, Baylor

Abraham Lucas | Associated Press

42. Indianapolis – Abraham Lucas, Tackle, Washington State

Lucas is looking like one of the top lineman prospects available in the second round. I don’t think he lasts long on the board.

43. Atlanta – David Ojabo, Defensive End, Michigan

44. Cleveland – Travis Jones, Defensive Tackle, UConn

45. Baltimore – Quay Walker, Linebacker, Georgia

46. Minnesota – Arnold Ebeketie, Defensive End, Penn State

47. Washington – Sam Howell, Quarterback, North Carolina

48. Chicago – Christian Watson, Wide Receiver, North Dakota State

49. New Orleans – Desmond Ridder, Quarterback, Cincinnati

50. Kansas City – Lewis Cine, Safety, Georgia

51. Philadelphia – JaQuan Brisker, Safety, Penn State

52. Pittsburgh – Luke Goedeke, Tackle, Central Michigan

53. Green Bay – Nik Bonitto, Defensive End, Oklahoma

54. New England – Leo Chenal, Linebacker, Wisconsin

55. Arizona – Cam Taylor-Britt, Cornerback, Nebraska

56. Dallas – Trey McBride, Tight End, Colorado State

57. Buffalo – Dylan Parham, Guard, Memphis

58. Atlanta – Breece Hall, Running Back, Iowa State

59. Green Bay – Kenneth Walker III, Running Back, Michigan State

60. Tampa Bay – Jalen Tolbert, Wide Receiver, South Alabama

61. San Francisco – Martin Emerson, Cornerback, Mississippi State

USC’s Drake Jackson | Dustin Bradford/Getty Images

62. Kansas City – Drake Jackson, Defensive End, USC

It’s a very strong edge class and that has pushed Jackson down the line. He’s a great value at the end of the Second Round for a team that needs an edge rusher.

63. Cincinnati – Brian Asomoah, Linebacker, Oklahoma

64. Denver – Troy Andersen, Linebacker, Montana State


Third Round

65. Jacksonville – Chad Muma, Linebacker, Wyoming

66. Detroit – Marcus Jones, Cornerback, Houston

Greg Dulcich | UCLA Athletics

67. Giants – Greg Dulcich, Tight End, UCLA

Dulcich has emerged as one of the best tight ends in this year’s draft class. I think he is probably the second off the board and lands in the early-third round.

68. Houston – Tariq Woolen, Cornerback, UTSA

69. Jets – Nick Cross, Safety, Maryland

70. Jacksonville – Logan Hall, Defensive Tackle, Houston

71. Chicago – Zach Tom, Tackle, Wake Forest

72. Seattle – Josh Pashcal, Defensive End, Kentucky

73. Indianapolis – John Metchie III, Wide Receiver, Alabama

74. Atlanta – Carson Strong, Quarterback, Nevada

75. Denver – Jamaree Salyer, Tackle, Georgia

76. Baltimore – Kellen Diesch, Tackle, Arizona State

Diesch had a great senior season and draft season. I wouldn’t be surprised if he goes even faster than this.

77. Minnesota – Cole Strange, Guard, Chattanooga

78. Cleveland – Calvin Austin, Wide Receiver, Memphis

79. Chargers – Perrion Winfrey, Defensive Tackle, Oklahoma

80. Houston – Kingsley Enagbare, Defensive End, South Carolina

81. Giants – Christian Harris, Linebacker, Alabama

82. Atlanta – Kerby Joseph, Safety, Illinois

83. Philadelphia – Kyle Philips, Wide Receiver, UCLA

Philips was an underrated Pac-12 stud throughout his career and now he’s going to get the attention he deserves as a speedy playmaker who goes in the third round.

Feels like a guy who could excel in the slot right away.

ASU’s Dohnovan West | Sun Devil Athletics

84. Pittsburgh – Dohnovan West, Center, Arizona State

West did nothing but fulfill his potential as one of the best interior offensive linemen in the Pac-12 in his three-year career.

A lot of teams need guards and centers in the middle of the draft and this is where West should land.

85. New England – Bryan Cook, Safety, Cincinnati

86. Las Vegas – Phidarian Mathis, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

87. Arizona – Cam Jurgens, Center, Nebraska

88. Dallas – Dane Belton, Safety, Iowa

89. Buffalo – Demarri Mathis, Cornerback, Pitt

90. Tennessee – Jeloni Woods, Tight End, Virginia

91. Tampa Bay – Dameon Pierce, Running Back, Florida

92. Green Bay – DeMarvin Leal, Defensive End, Texas A&M

93. San Francisco – Max Mitchell, Tackle, Louisiana

94. Kansas City – Channing Tindall, Linebacker, Georgia

95. Cincinnati – Cordalle Flott, Cornerback, LSU

96. Denver – Marquis Hayes, Guard, Oklahoma

97. Detroit – Brandon Smith, Linebacker, Penn State

98. New Orleans – Jalyn Armour-Davis, Cornerback, Alabama

99. Cleveland – Cameron Thomas, Defensive End, San Diego State

100. Baltimore – Matthew Butler, Defensive Tackle, Tennessee

101. Philadelphia – Darrian Beavers, Linebacker, Cincinnati

Sean Rhyan | 247Sports

102. Miami – Sean Rhyan, Tackle, UCLA

Rhyan is a lot like West, a great recruit who came in and played polished in the Pac-12 for a few years. He actually has the potential to be even better in the NFL.

103. Kansas City – Braxton Jones, Tackle, Southern Utah

104. Rams – Logan Bruss, Tackle, Wisconsin

105. San Francisco – Danny Gray, Wide Receiver, SMU
