2022 NFL Draft Rankings: Final Big Board Top 262

View the original article to see embedded media.

In 2020, LSU tied a record originally set by Ohio State in ’04 for most draft picks (14) by a single school in a draft class during the seven-round era.

Could Georgia challenge that record?

With six more than the next closest school (Alabama), the Bulldogs’ 15 is easily the most prospects ranked inside my top 262 prospects, which matches the number of draft picks this year. Even though these rankings are not a prediction of the order in which these prospects will be selected, the Bulldogs have enough draft-eligible talent to make a run at the record.

It’s a virtual lock that Georgia will break its own record of nine picks in a single year. In addition, there’s a good chance the Bulldogs will break their record of three first-round picks in a class (as they did in my latest mock draft).

There are a total of 98 schools represented in these rankings, and 57 of those schools have multiple prospects ranked.

With that said, below are top 262 prospects for the 2022 draft.

Mark J. Rebilas/USA TODAY Sports (Aidan Hutchinson); Jim Dedmon/USA TODAY Sports (Kenny Pickett); Athens Banner-Herald/USA TODAY NETWORK (Travon Walker)

1. Aidan Hutchinson, edge, Michigan (SR, 6'7", 260 pounds)

Hutchinson set Michigan’s single-season sack record with 14 in 2021 and finished as the Heisman runner-up. While he lacks ideal length (32 ⅛" arms), the productive edge rusher has a quick first step and outstanding agility for a 260-pounder. His combine times in the three-cone (6.73) and 20-yard shuttle (4.15) ranked sixth and fourth, respectively, regardless of position. The son of a former Michigan captain, Hutchinson’s intangibles, football character and relentless motor, combined with his physical traits, polish and production, make him one of the safest picks in the draft.

2. Kyle Hamilton, S, Notre Dame (JR, 6'4", 220 pounds)

Hamilton’s timed 40-yard dashes—4.59 seconds at the combine and in the 4.7 range at Notre Dame’s pro day—disappointed, but he’s not slow. Not only has he shown outstanding range, but The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman notes that Hamilton’s GPS top-end speed was tracked at 21 mph. With a rare combination of size and length at the position, Hamilton’s athleticism, fluidity, smarts and instincts allow him to make plays all over the field against the run and pass.

3. Kayvon Thibodeaux, edge, Oregon (JR, 6'4", 254 pounds)

Thibodeaux left Oregon with good production—19 sacks and 35.5 TFLs over three seasons—even if that output didn’t fully match the lofty expectations many had for the former top overall recruit in the ESPN 300. Thibodeaux showed an impressive combination of speed (4.58 40-yard dash) and strength (position-high 27 bench press reps) at the combine. With an ideal frame, combined with explosive first-step quickness and closing burst, double-digit sacks should become the norm for Thibodeaux relatively early in his NFL career.

4. Evan Neal, OT, Alabama (JR, 6'8", 337 pounds)

Neal will offer his future team true versatility, having started at left guard, right tackle and left tackle over the past three seasons, respectively. The former five-star recruit has an impressive combination of size, length and power, but he’s a smooth mover for a prospect his size. Neal didn’t run at either the combine or his pro day, but he’s a freakish athlete who topped Bruce Feldman’s annual freaks list for The Athletic.

5. Ikem Ekwonu, OT, North Carolina State (JR, 6'4", 310 pounds)

Ekwonu is arguably the best run-blocking offensive tackle over the past few drafts. Powerful at the point of attack, with the nimble feet and movement skills, Ekwonu has been dubbed “Mr. Pancake” due to the volume of his pancake blocks. Even though he occasionally oversets in pass protection, he possesses the traits, intelligence and character that should allow him to continue to make significant strides in that area.

6. Ahmad Gardner, CB, Cincinnati (JR, 6'3", 190 pounds)

Ideally suited for press coverage, Gardner is a lanky corner with elite length (33 ½" arms), toughness and a CB1 mentality. When asked at the combine how he’d react to giving up an NFL touchdown, Gardner said “I don’t have plans on giving one up.” He checked the box by showing his long speed (4.41 40-yard dash) and his change of direction and agility are good for a corner with his height. “Sauce” has ended each of his three seasons in Cincinnati with three interceptions.

7. Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State (JR, 6'0", 183 pounds)

Wilson has outstanding body control and ball skills, and is dynamic after the catch. Quick and elusive, Wilson ran a (slightly) faster-than-expected 40-yard dash (4.38) in Indianapolis. Wilson is a complete receiver who finished 2021 with 70 catches for 1,058 yards and 12 touchdowns.

8. Travon Walker, edge, Georgia (JR, 6'5", 272 pounds)

Walker’s elite traits—4.51 40-yard dash at 272 pounds and 35 ½" arms—has led to speculation that Trent Baalke could select him with the No. 1 pick. The former five-star recruit has inside-outside versatility and even dropped into coverage some. Already an outstanding run defender, Walker’s rare physical tools should allow him to develop into a more disruptive player in the passing game at the next level than he was asked to be on Georgia’s star-studded defense.

9. Charles Cross, OT, Mississippi State (rSO, 6'5", 307 pounds)

There will be an adjustment as he transitions from Mike Leach’s Air Raid system, but Cross has had tons of pass-blocking reps over the past two seasons. While he wasn’t recruited to play for Leach, the former five-star recruit showed significant improvement from 2020 to ’21. The two-year starter has plus length (34 ½" arms), athleticism, balance and hand placement. All of his starts have been at left tackle, and that’s where he’s ideally suited to play at the next level.

10. Derek Stingley Jr., CB, LSU (JR, 6'0", 190 pounds)

Stingley’s 2019 was the best individual season among draft-eligible cornerbacks, and he did that as an 18-year-old true freshman during LSU’s title run. On the flip side, however, he has played only 10 total games over the past two years, suffered a Lisfranc injury and wasn’t as dominant (as he was in ’19) when he was on the field. He has the speed, athleticism and fluidity to thrive on an island, in addition to outstanding ball skills (six INTs in ’19). If he falls outside the top 10, he could become a steal if he’s able to regain his freshman form.

11. Jermaine Johnson II, edge, Florida State (rSR, 6'5", 254 pounds)

After transferring from Georgia, Johnson was named ACC Defensive Player of the Year and led the conference in both TFLs (17.5) and sacks (11.5) in 2021. Johnson has continued to improve his stock throughout the predraft process. He was arguably the biggest winner during Senior Bowl week and posted a 4.58 40-yard dash at the combine. His combination of strength, length (34" arms), burst and production puts him in the top-10 mix.

12. Drake London, WR, USC (JR, 6'4", 219 pounds)

London began his USC career as a dual-sport athlete (with basketball) and knows how to use his large frame to box out defenders. His wide catch radius and strong hands help him dominate at the catch point. The fifth-youngest prospect on this list (he turns 21 in late July), London hauled in 88 receptions for 1,084 yards and seven touchdowns in just eight games. A broken ankle prematurely ended his season in October, and he didn’t run the 40-yard dash at last week’s pro day, but he puts himself at 95% in terms of his recovery.

Brett Davis/USA TODAY Sports

13. Jameson Williams, WR, Alabama (JR, 6'2", 179 pounds)

After catching only 15 passes in 10 games over two seasons at Ohio State, Williams transferred to Alabama and had a breakout season (79/1,572/15) in 2021. While not just a deep threat, Williams’s track background shows up on the field with his game-breaking speed. While he tore his ACL in January, Williams is “ahead of schedule” with rehab and expects to be cleared before training camp. Williams has the talent to emerge as the WR1 in this draft class even if he were to miss time to start his rookie season.

14. Tyler Linderbaum, IOL, Iowa (rJR, 6'2", 296 pounds)

As Marcus Mosher notes, only five offensive linemen since 2000 have shorter arms than Linderbaum (31 ⅛”). While his frame likely limits him only to center, the Rimington Trophy winner is the best center prospect not only in this draft class but over the past several drafts as well. A mild foot sprain kept him from working out at the combine or Iowa’s pro day, but he has elite lateral mobility and is ideally suited for a zone scheme that can maximize his movement skills.

15. Devin Lloyd, LB, Utah (rSR, 6'3", 237 pounds)

Lloyd is a do-it-all linebacker who can play all three linebacker positions and impact the game in a variety of ways. He stuffed the stat sheet last season with 110 tackles, 22 TFLs, eight sacks and four interceptions (including two returned for scores). The rangy former high school safety has the size and length to match up with tight ends and outstanding ball skills.

16. Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington (JR, 5'11", 193 pounds)

McDuffie has just average size and lacks length (sub-30" arms), but he’s aggressive and physical in run support and limits yards after the catch. He has outstanding short-area quickness, fluid hips and is rarely out of position. McDuffie is at his best in zone coverage, but he’s scheme-diverse and has the versatility to play outside, in the slot and even some safety.

17. Trevor Penning, OT, Northern Iowa (rSR, 6'7", 325 pounds)

Penning plays to the echo of the whistle and has the tenacity and nasty demeanor that will endear him to his coaches. He has prototypical size and length, outstanding strength and athletic feet. While he has primarily started at left tackle (31 of 33 starts) and could succeed there at the next level, he may be even better on the right side.

18. George Karlaftis, edge, Purdue (JR, 6'4", 266 pounds)

Karlaftis lacks ideal length and bend at the top of his rush, but he wins with power. He has a quick first step, violent and active hands, and a nonstop motor with the versatility to line up inside or outside.

19. Jordan Davis, IDL, Georgia (SR, 6'6", 341 pounds)

Physically imposing and stout at the point of the attack, Davis will immediately upgrade his NFL team’s run defense. His impact is not always felt in the box score, but he opens up opportunities for those around him to make plays. While he may primarily be utilized as a two-down run stuffer to begin his career, his elite mobility (4.78 40-yard dash at 341 pounds) could enable him to develop into a more disruptive player on passing downs.

20. Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas (JR, 6'2", 225 pounds)

Burks plays faster than his timed speed, with the acceleration to run away from defenders. Due to his physicality, run-after-catch prowess and how the Razorbacks varied his alignments, it’s easy to see how his new team could use Burks similarly to how the 49ers use Deebo Samuel. Burks finished 2021 with 66 receptions for 1,104 yards, 14 carries for 112 yards, and a total of 12 touchdowns.

21. Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State (SR, 6'0", 187 pounds)

Olave creates easy separation as one of the most polished route-runners in this year’s draft class. Due to his speed and ability to track the ball well, he can be a weapon in the vertical passing game. He finished his Ohio State career with a school record for receiving touchdowns (35) and averaged 15.4 yards per catch.

22. Devonte Wyatt, IDL, Georgia (rSR, 6'3", 304 pounds)

Georgia has lots of “freaks” on defense. The Bulldogs have six front-seven players ranked inside my top 75 prospects, and defensive tackle Jalen Carter (not draft-eligible) is going to be a high pick when he declares. According to Feldman’s 2021 preseason list, the team’s “biggest freak” is Wyatt. He showed off his elite quickness and athleticism by running a 4.77 40-yard dash at 304 pounds. Wyatt is a well-rounded prospect who is stout against the run and more developed as a pass rusher than Davis. Wyatt is an older prospect, who turned 24 last month.

23. Daxton Hill, S, Michigan (JR, 6'0", 191 pounds)

Hill ran a 4.38 40-yard dash and ranked second among all combine participants in the three-cone (6.57) and 20-yard shuttle (4.06). Although he’s built more like a cornerback, Hill is physical and willing to throw his body around as a tackler. Teams will covet his versatility and may consider moving him to cornerback.

24. Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia (JR, 5'11", 229 pounds)

Dean was the leader of the best defense in the country and is a modern-day three-down linebacker. His football IQ, instincts and speed allow him to play fast, and he’s always around the ball. While his quickness and athleticism will allow him to excel in coverage against running backs, his lack of ideal size and length could create challenges covering tight ends.

25. Zion Johnson, IOL, Boston College (rSR, 6'3", 312 pounds)

Including his two seasons at Davidson, Johnson has 58 games of experience with double-digit starts at three different positions—left guard, right tackle and left tackle. While he can handle a spot start at tackle, if necessary, he’s ideally suited to the play on the interior. Reps at center during Senior Bowl week add to his versatility. Johnson is smart and polished, and plays under control and with good balance. He’s a high-floor prospect who should develop into an above-average starter early in his career.

26. Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson (JR, 6'0", 194 pounds)

Booth is an athletic, agile and scheme-diverse cornerback. While he has a few missed tackles in part to being overaggressive, Booth is physical and willing as a run defender. The former five-star recruit is competitive at the catch point and has outstanding ball skills as this highlight reel grab demonstrates. Per PFF, no ACC cornerback played more snaps than Booth without allowing a 20-yard completion in 2021. Booth underwent sports hernia surgery last month, but he’s expected to be ready for the start of camp.

27. Kenny Pickett, QB, Pittsburgh (rSR, 6'3", 217 pounds)

Pickett is a four-year starter who broke Deshaun Watson’s ACC record for most passing touchdowns in a season (42) while cutting down on interceptions (seven) in 2021. Per PFF, 25 of those touchdown passes were against the blitz. Some teams may have issues with his hand size (8 ½”), and he’s an older prospect who will turn 24 before training camp, but he has good (not elite) arm strength and mobility, moves quickly through his progressions and is accurate to all three levels.

28. Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State (rSR, 5'11", 178 pounds)

Dotson creates separation with his nuanced route running and quickness, has outstanding hands and is elusive in the open field even though he won’t break a lot of tackles. He also adds value as a punt returner and finished his final season at Penn State with 91 catches for 1,182 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Nathan Ray Seebeck/USA TODAY Sports

29. Malik Willis, QB, Liberty (rSR, 6'1", 219 pounds)

Willis is a dual-threat talent with the highest ceiling among this year’s crop of quarterback prospects. Willis generates plenty of zip on his throws, and his elite speed and dynamism as a runner stresses opposing defenses. Not only did he impress during on-field drills at the combine and his pro day, but this viral video captured off the field shows the strength of his character and why it’s easy to root for Willis.

30. Kenyon Green, IOL, Texas A&M (JR, 6'4", 323 pounds)

Green started at right guard in 2019, left guard in ’20 and then made starts at all offensive line positions except center in ’21. Like Zion Johnson, Green is ideally suited to play guard, although his added versatility is a plus. Improved hand usage will help cut down on holding penalties, but the former five-star recruit has a powerful lower half, outstanding length and is at his best in the run game.

31. Bernhard Raimann, OT, Central Michigan (SR, 6'6", 303 pounds)

Raimann is a former exchange student from Austria who was recruited to Central Michigan as a tight end before converting to left tackle just two seasons ago. Even though he turns 25 in September, he’s young in terms of his football development and has made impressive strides learning his new position so far. Raimann lacks ideal arm length (32 ⅞”), but he has nimble feet and excellent play strength, and his best football is ahead of him.

32. David Ojabo, edge, Michigan (rSO, 6'4", 250 pounds)

Ojabo is relatively new to football, but he finished last season with 11 sacks—second in the Big Ten behind Hutchinson—and his pass-rush moves are more developed than one would expect given his limited experience. A torn Achilles will delay his NFL debut, and he won’t contribute much on run downs early in his career. That said, the explosive and bendy edge rusher offers his future team plenty of upside as a reward for its patience with his recovery and development.

33. Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida (JR, 6'2", 191 pounds)

Playing defensive back is the family business, as Elam’s father (Abe Elam) and uncle (Matt Elam) both played safety in the NFL. Kaiir has outstanding straight-line speed (4.39 40-yard dash) and he’s at his best in press where he can use his size and physicality at the line of scrimmage.

34. Arnold Ebiketie, edge, Penn State (rSR, 6'2", 250 pounds)

A transfer from Temple, Ebiketie had 9.5 sacks and 18 TFLs in his only season with the Nittany Lions. Per PFF, Ebiketie had the third-highest win rate among Big Ten edge rushers after Hutchinson and Karlaftis in 2021. While he isn’t as effective against the run, his length (34 ⅛" arms), bend and active hands should allow him to become a productive pass rusher early in his career.

35. Breece Hall, RB, Iowa State (JR, 5'11", 217 pounds)

Hall is a patient runner with outstanding vision and contact balance, and he’s a reliable receiver out of the backfield. Although he has shouldered a heavy workload (800 career touches), Hall was highly productive and has the frame and versatile skill set to be a featured back. Similar to Elam, Hall has an NFL pedigree as he follows in the footsteps of his stepfather (Jeff Smith) and cousin (Roger Craig).

36. Matt Corral, QB, Mississippi (rJR, 6'2", 212 pounds)

Improved decision making and ball placement helped Corral cut down on interceptions in 2021 (five) compared to the previous season (14). While he has benefited from playing in Lane Kiffin’s offense, Corral throws with a quick release, has above-average arm strength and the mobility to make and extend plays. While he’s tough and it’s easy to admire his competitiveness, his relatively slight frame and playing style could impact durability.

37. Boye Mafe, edge, Minnesota (rSR, 6'4", 261 pounds)

Mafe has built plenty of momentum throughout the predraft process. After turning heads at the Senior Bowl in practices and as the National Team MVP, he showed off elite athleticism in Indy with a 4.53 40-yard dash and explosive jumps (38" vertical and 10'5" broad). Mafe is an ascending prospect who could end up sneaking into the back end of Round 1.

38. Travis Jones, IDL, Connecticut (SR, 6'4", 325 pounds)

Jones was the best player on a bad UConn team (1–11 in 2021). He’s a stout run defender with the ability to push the pocket on passing downs and has impressive mobility for a player his size. For teams that miss out on Jordan Davis or prefer to wait (a little longer) on a run-stuffing nose tackle, there won’t be much of a drop off with Jones.

39. Kenneth Walker III, RB, Michigan State (JR, 5'9", 211 pounds)

Walker is a powerful runner with a thick and compact build, excellent contact balance and impressive change-of-direction agility. He’s a tackle-breaking machine who racks up yards after contact in bunches. Walker tied for the third-fastest 40-yard dash at the combine among running backs (4.38). Walker has limited experience in the passing game, with 19 career receptions over three seasons.

40. Logan Hall, DL, Houston (SR, 6'6", 283 pounds)

His height can lead to some natural leverage issues, but Hall uses his quickness, violent hands and relentless motor to make an impact rushing the passer and can hold his own defending the run. Hall finished with his most productive season (13 TFLs and six sacks) in 2021.

41. Kyler Gordon, CB, Washington (rJR, 6'0", 194 pounds)

Gordon posted a relatively disappointing time in the 40-yard dash (4.52) at the combine, but he has outstanding short-area quickness and change-of-direction ability. The scheme-diverse corner is a smooth and fluid mover with excellent ball skills.

Sam Navarro/USA TODAY Sports

42. Sam Howell, QB, North Carolina (JR, 6'1", 218 pounds)

His passing numbers declined year over year as most of North Carolina’s skill-position players had departed for the draft last spring, but Howell is arguably the best deep passer in this year’s draft class. He rushed for 828 yards and 11 touchdowns, both of which ranked top seven in the ACC last season. Per PFF, Howell’s 65 forced missed tackles last season are the most by a Power 5 QB since 2014.

43. Desmond Ridder, QB, Cincinnati (rSR, 6'3", 211 pounds)

Ridder’s strong work ethic and character has helped him improve every season. A four-year starter with 44 career wins, he led the Bearcats to the College Football Playoff in 2021. There are some issues with accuracy and ball placement, but Ridder has the ability to process what he sees quickly and to make throws to all three levels of the field. While he looks to win from the pocket first, defenses also need to account for his 4.52 speed.

44. George Pickens, WR, Georgia (JR, 6'3", 195 pounds)

Pickens’s best season came as a highly-touted true freshman when he hauled in 49 receptions for 727 yards and eight touchdowns in 2019. While he missed most of the past season with a torn ACL, the lanky receiver has natural hands and excellent body control.

45. Jaquan Brisker, S, Penn State (SR, 6'1", 199 pounds)

Brisker has the versatility to succeed in a variety of roles and alignments. He played through a shoulder injury in 2021, which led to some missed tackles, but he’s at his best playing close to the line of scrimmage and is a physical tone-setter on defense. He uses his athleticism, length and instincts to make plays in both the pass and run games.

46. Skyy Moore, WR, Western Michigan (JR, 5'10", 195 pounds)

An option quarterback and defensive back in high school, Moore converted to wide receiver due to team needs and led the Broncos in both receptions (51) and yards (802) as a true freshman in 2019. He had a 95/1,292/10 line in ’21 and PFF credited Moore with 26 broken tackles after the catch, which led FBS wide receivers last season.

47. Jalen Pitre, S, Baylor (rSR, 5'11", 198 pounds)

Pitre is quicker than fast, but he ran a 4.44 40-yard dash at Baylor’s pro day. His intelligence and instincts allow him to play fast and impact the game in so many different ways. The Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year in 2021 finished last season with 75 tackles, 18.5 TFLs, 3.5 sacks, two interceptions and three forced fumbles.

48. Lewis Cine, S, Georgia (JR, 6'2", 199 pounds)

Cine ran a 4.37 40-yard dash at the combine and led all safeties in the broad jump (11'1"). He sees the game well, and “multiple teams” told the Senior Bowl’s Jim Nagy that Cine “blew them away in interviews.” Cine delivers some big hits in run support and is a reliable tackler in space with sideline-to-sideline range.

49. Christian Watson, WR, North Dakota State (rSR, 6'4", 208 pounds)

Watson has an elite combination of size and speed with a wide catch radius, and is elusive for a big receiver. The son of a former NFL safety (Tim Watson) ran the sixth-fastest 40-yard dash among wide receivers (4.36) and led all combine participants in the broad jump (11'4"). Watson averaged 20.4 yards per reception over his career and returned a pair of kickoffs for scores in 2020.

50. Roger McCreary, CB, Auburn (SR, 5'11", 190 pounds)

After receiving limited offers coming out of high school, McCreary still plays with a chip on his shoulder. While he’s tied with Marcus Jones (5'8", 174 pounds) for the shortest arms among the 34 corners on this list, McCreary is a smooth and fluid athlete who is sticky in coverage and will compete through the catch point.

51. Christian Harris, LB, Alabama (JR, 6'1", 226 pounds)

52. Trey McBride, TE, Colorado State (SR, 6'4", 246 pounds)

53. Quay Walker, LB, Georgia (SR, 6'4", 241 pounds)

54. DeMarvin Leal, IDL, Texas A&M (JR, 6'4", 283 pounds)

55. Tyler Smith, OT, Tulsa (rSO, 6'5", 324 pounds)

56. Drake Jackson, edge, USC (JR, 6'3", 254 pounds)

57. Perrion Winfrey, IDL, Oklahoma (SR, 6'4", 290 pounds)

58. Darian Kinnard, IOL, Kentucky (SR, 6'5", 322 pounds)

59. Kingsley Enagbare, edge, South Carolina (SR, 6'4", 258 pounds)

60. Jalen Tolbert, WR, South Alabama (rSR, 6'1", 194 pounds)

61. Tariq Woolen, CB, UTSA (rSR, 6'4", 205 pounds)

62. Nik Bonitto, edge, Oklahoma (rJR, 6'3", 248 pounds)

63. Daniel Faalele, OT, Minnesota (SR, 6'8", 384 pounds)

64. Cameron Thomas, edge, San Diego State (SR, 6'4", 267 pounds)

65. Jamaree Salyer, IOL, Georgia (SR, 6'3", 321 pounds)

66. Greg Dulcich, TE, UCLA (rJR, 6'4", 243 pounds)

67. David Bell, WR, Purdue (JR, 6'1", 212 pounds)

68. Chad Muma, LB, Wyoming (SR, 6'3", 239 pounds)

69. Troy Andersen, LB, Montana State (SR, 6'4", 243 pounds)

70. Sam Williams, edge, Mississippi (SR, 6'4", 261 pounds)

71. John Metchie III, WR, Alabama (JR, 5'11", 187 pounds)

72. Abraham Lucas, OT, Washington State (rSR, 6'6", 315 pounds)

73. Leo Chenal, LB, Wisconsin (JR, 6'3", 250 pounds)

74. Phidarian Mathis, IDL, Alabama (rSR, 6'4", 310 pounds)

75. Channing Tindall, LB, Georgia (SR, 6'2", 230 pounds)

76. Isaiah Spiller, RB, Texas A&M (JR, 6'0", 217 pounds)

77. Dylan Parham, IOL, Memphis (rSR, 6'3", 311 pounds)

78. Cameron Jurgens, IOL, Nebraska (rJR, 6'3", 303 pounds)

79. Josh Paschal, edge, Kentucky (rSR, 6'3", 268 pounds)

80. Nicholas Petit-Frere, OT, Ohio State (rJR, 6'5", 316 pounds)

81. Brian Asamoah, LB, Oklahoma (rJR, 6'0", 226 pounds)

82. Marcus Jones, CB, Houston (SR, 5'8", 174 pounds)

83. Dominique Robinson, edge, Miami (OH) (SR, 6'5", 253 pounds)

84. Myjai Sanders, edge, Cincinnati (SR, 6'5", 247 pounds)

85. Carson Strong, QB, Nevada (rJR, 6'3", 226 pounds)

86. Sean Rhyan, OL, UCLA (JR, 6'5", 321 pounds)

87. Jeremy Ruckert, TE, Ohio State (SR, 6'5", 250 pounds)

88. Ed Ingram, IOL, LSU (rSR, 6'3", 307 pounds)

89. Alec Pierce, WR, Cincinnati (SR, 6'3", 211 pounds)

90. Cole Strange, IOL, TN-Chattanooga (rSR, 6'5", 307 pounds)

91. Nick Cross, S, Maryland (JR, 6'0", 212 pounds)

92. Martin Emerson, CB, Mississippi State (JR, 6'2", 201 pounds)

93. Cam Taylor-Britt, CB, Nebraska (SR, 5'11", 196 pounds)

94. Alex Wright, edge, UAB (JR, 6'5", 271 pounds)

95. Bryan Cook, S, Cincinnati (SR, 6'1", 206 pounds)

96. Khalil Shakir, WR, Boise State (SR, 6'0", 196 pounds)
