2022 NFL Mock Draft: Round 1, Pick 13 (Cleveland Browns)
Originally, I thought the Cleveland Browns could put off a wide receiver until the later rounds. However, the wide receiver free agent market is drying up before it even opened and who knows what will happen with Jarvis Landry now. If the Browns have their choice of the top wide receiver of this class, like they do here, they need to take it.
Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave have been neck and neck in the draft process, but Wilson should have the edge in Cleveland’s mind. Wilson has a similar skill set to Cooper Kupp in his route-running ability and the way he can make plays after the catch. That paired with already having a relationship with Baker Mayfield (they went to the same high school) makes Wilson the favorite for Cleveland.
2022 NFL Mock Draft: Round 1, Pick 14 (Baltimore Ravens)
If Lamar Jackson being hurt last season wasn’t enough for the Ravens to address their offensive line, Baltimore also allowed the second-most sacks during the 2021 season. They need to upgrade this unit this offseason if they want to contend in a division that has Myles Garrett, T.J. Watt and the defending AFC Champion Cincinnati Bengals.
Trevor Penning has been one of the biggest risers in draft stock this offseason. Every step of the way he’s increased his value and the Ravens could be the team to take him in the first round. He’s exhibited the ability to be among the top tackles and now will have a shot to prove that value against the NFL’s best.
