17. Cincinnati Bengals: Kenyon Green, OL, Texas A&M

The Cincinnati Bengals are a tale of two teams this season. One week they look like the division favorites, and the next they are sputtering and look like a team with a top 10 pick. It’s a unit that has so much in place, but they need help in the secondary and on the offensive line.

They opt to protect Joe Burrow in this 2022 NFL Mock Draft and roll with Aggies offensive lineman Kenyon Green. Green has the quick feet and anchor to handle rushers in pass protection, and is a physical tone-setter in the run game. He’d be a great addition in Cincinnati.

18. Cleveland Browns: David Ojabo, EDGE, Michigan

The Cleveland Browns are starting to settle down on defense, but the defensive line could look very different in 2022. In this 2022 NFL Mock Draft, they find a more long-term option to pair with Myles Garrett.

David Ojabo has had a meteoric rise this season, especially after having played 23 snaps in 2020. He’s only played football since 2017, but his combination of athleticism, improved rush moves, and range to defend the run are enough to be a first round pick should he declare.

19. Washington Football Team: Malik Willis, QB, Liberty

It’s hard not to keep giving the Washington Football Team a quarterback in these mock drafts, especially because it’s tough to trust Taylor Heinicke to be anything more than a competent backup.

This 2022 NFL Mock Draft has them (once again) selecting Malik Willis. Willis has an impressive toolbox at quarterback, from a strong arm to playmaking skills out of structure along with power and elusiveness as a runner. The right coaching can unlock his ceiling.

20. Buffalo Bills: Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson

The Buffalo Bills got good play out of Dane Jackson at corner on Sunday with Tre White out for the season. However, the defense won’t be complete without a strong CB2 on the roster.

Andrew Booth Jr. falls to this point and is great value in this 2022 NFL Mock Draft. Booth has excellent eye discipline, great transition skills, elite ball skills, and offers plenty in run support as a tackler in space.
