The fifth quarterback of the first round comes off the board at 29 in this 2022 NFL Mock Draft after the Indianapolis Colts trade up to select Ole Miss QB Matt Corral. Corral slings the ball around with an effortless throwing motion and is a true dual-threat when he leaves the pocket. Lane Kiffin dialed up designed runs for the QB, showing that the right offensive coordinator can scheme up some fun stuff for him.
The NFL is adopting more and more RPO’s each season, and that is something Corral ran at a high clip in college. Frank Reich’s system is an easy one to learn, and he will be able to add layers to it that he couldn’t with the traditional pocket passers he’s had in Indy. A veteran can start the season, before turning the reins over to Corral if he proves to be ready. Either way, the pick used to trade up can be replaced if Carson Wentz plays 70% of the snaps in Washington. A low-risk move to potentially land a guy capable of leading the franchise into the future.
Skyy Moore, Tyreek Hill, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Travis Kelce. Giving Patrick Mahomes that group of pass catchers feels unfair. Mahomes has never really had a consistent WR opposite Tyreek Hill during his time in Kansas City. This changes the instant that Moore is selected.
Skyy Moore is another big riser after having a strong showing at the Combine. Moore caught 95 passes on 125 targets in 2021. Of those 125 targets, he was only charged with four drops. Having watched those drops, I’d have beef with the statistician on a couple of those if I was Skyy Moore. Regardless, Moore has reliable hands and plays even faster than his 4.4 speed indicates. The AFC West gets even scarier.
