NFC North Draft & Roster Review 2022

Kicking off our four weeks of the divisional draft breakdown series today is the NFC North!

We’ll go through every single pick of all 32 teams, give a quick scouting report on each players, talk about their fit on the roster, the draft class as a whole and then finish by comparing what those four teams inside the division were able to accomplish!

Be sure to follow along, as we work our way through the league, alternating between NFC & AFC!

The top 100 prospects in the 2022 NFL Draft:

All the evaluations are in the books and you can check out my detailed positional rankings for every unit in the draft right here on my page. So now it’s time to combine them all and bring to you my combined big board. Unlike the positional breakdowns, this is actually taking injuries into contact, which we’re aware off at the moment, since I obviously don’t have insight into the respective medical records. NFL teams of course also have the benefit of being able to interview these young men. I don’t have that luxury of making personal connections and weighing their characters, but I see myself as a pretty damn good talent evaluator.

Three players I disqualified from this list, because I simply don’t have the medical information to judge how much I should move them on my board – Michigan edge defender David Ojabo, Nevada quarterback Carson Strong and LSU linebacker Damone Clark. All three would be inside my top-50 otherwise, in that order. You can make out where they would come in based on my positional rankings. And Clemson wide receiver Justyn Ross is another guy I struggled with trying to rank, since I simply don’t have knowledge about where he stands medically.

Either way, this is how I stack up basically the first three rounds of this draft:

Top 10 wide receivers in the 2022 NFL Draft:

We’re entering our second week of positional draft breakdowns. After talking about the best running back and linebacker prospects, it’s time to highlight the wide receivers and cornerbacks, once again starting with the offensive side of the ball.

Right off the bat, I cheated a little bit, by having two guys tied at number ten, but this time I didn’t add some names that just missed the cut, but rather decided to mention a wildcard name at the end. As always, this is 90 percent based on film study, with advanced statistics and testing numbers helping me make my case or just separate names, which I had very closely bunched together.

Similar to what we’ve seen in recent years – and a trend that will continue, thanks to all the youth passing camps and wide open college offenses – this receiver class is very deep and I could have mentioned about 30 names here that I look at as draftable players. However, in order to not just list off names, I broke down the twelve guys I already referenced and then put just a few as the “next names up”, that I think are in that next tier. Currently I have first-round grades on five of these and six more in the top-75 or so.

Here’s the list:
