2022 NFL Draft prospect rankings:
6. George Karlaftis – EDGE – Purdue
The last in a fantastic trio of pass rushers at the top of the 2022 NFL Draft, Karlaftis has played a big part in some impact wins for the Boilermakers in 2021. At 6-foot-4 and 265 pounds, he is an ideal defensive end prospect in a 4-3 but shows the versatility to fit in most defensive schemes. He will be an impact player right away for one lucky NFL team.
7. DeMarvin Leal – DT – Texas A&M
The Aggies have a host of talented players available for the 2022 NFL Draft, but none better than defensive stalwart, DeMarvin Leal. A former top recruit at defensive end, Leal can play on multiple fronts and will be a slashing, disruptive force on the defensive line in the NFL.
8. Kenyon Green – OG – Texas A&M
The second A&M player to appear in the top 10, Green is one of the more dominant and versatile players in the draft. He has played both guard and center, while also splitting time at the LT position in 2021. His best fit at the next level is the guard position and Green could be a plug-and-play Pro Bowler for years to come.
9. Garrett Wilson – WR – Ohio State
While teammate Chris Olave seems to get more of the national media attention, Garrett Wilson is the better pro prospect between the two. He’s a silky smooth route runner ala, Justin Jefferson, with the same type of speed to go the distance at any time. Wilson may end up being better at the professional level than in college.
10. Jameson Williams – WR – Alabama
A former transfer as the backup to both Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave in 2020, Williams stepped out of the shadows and into the limelight in 2021. A solid route runner with great downfield speed, Williams could be the first receiver off the board. He’s the next in a long line of tremendous Alabama receiving prospects entering the NFL in recent years.
