13. Cleveland Browns: Jameson Williams, WR, Alabama

The Browns have a serious decision to make regarding Baker Mayfield for the foreseeable future, and his latest four interception outing continues to frustrate the fan base. It seems unlikely they draft a quarterback early, but the offense could use some help.

Jameson Williams has been a fast riser this season, and he’s the first receiver off the board in this 2022 NFL Mock Draft. Williams has the speed to be a dominant deep threat, but his route pacing, strong hands, and catch radius make him a three-level threat and a potential WR1 in an offense.

14. Philadelphia Eagles (via MIA): DeMarvin Leal, DL, Texas A&M

The Philadelphia Eagles had three top 10 selections several weeks ago, and now find themselves outside the top 10 with every selection. Their defensive line could use an upgrade, and they get a potential superstar in DeMarvin Leal. Leal can play from multiple alignments, and is a strong run defender on the edge along with a quick enough rusher to win on the inside.

15. New Orleans Saints: Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State

The Saints have been linked to Russell Wilson, but also have discussed Taysom Hill starting in 2022. Maybe Jameis Winston comes back. No matter what, the receiver room needs more help.

Garrett Wilson is here to save the day. Wilson thrives in all three phases as a receiver. He’s a strong separator as a route runner, has great ball skills at the catch point, and is slipper after the catch. He can be 1B to Michael Thomas’ 1A.

16. Pittsburgh Steelers: Sam Howell, QB, North Carolina

The Steelers will be synonymous with “quarterback” in the 2022 NFL Draft, and this 2022 NFL Mock Draft continues that trend. Ben Roethlisberger won’t be back, and neither Mason Rudolph nor Dwayne Haskins are ready to take over.

Sam Howell has the mobility and rushing upside that Pittsburgh has talked about, and has the velocity and accuracy to push the ball deep down the field while also operating efficiently in the quick game.
