LB. Utah. 31. 54. Scouting Report. Devin Lloyd. player. Pick Analysis

The Eagles never draft linebackers in the first round, ever. After trading back all the way to 31 though, Devin Lloyd is sitting there waiting to be picked in this 2022 NFL Mock Draft. I’m predicting that Howie Roseman finally breaks the trend and adds a day one starter at the biggest position of need.

Lloyd didn’t blow anyone away with his workout at the Combine, but he didn’t exactly underachieve either. I’d say he did “fine”. Because the linebacker position isn’t a necessity to most teams, you have to be more than “fine” to justify an earlier first-round pick. At No.31, “fine” is exactly what you’re looking for. No fan will be disappointed with this pick once they see Lloyd in Philly green. They address EDGE, WR, and LB, while also adding a 2023 first-round pick.

player. Pick Analysis. EDGE. Michigan. David Ojabo. 32. 50. Scouting Report

GM Brad Holmes cannot run this pick up to the podium quick enough. David Ojabo suffered a major knee injury at his Michigan Pro-Day Friday. As of this writing, there’s been no word on the severity but everyone in attendance said it “didn’t look good”. Let’s assume he drops a bit because of the injury.

This gives the rebuilding Lions a chance to keep Ojabo in-state, but since they are in the midst of a rebuild, they won’t need Ojabo to play immediately. This first round is going to test the patience of the Detroit faithful, but just imagine if both picks hit and you have a franchise QB and franchise pass rusher on a rookie deal going forward. It could be the turning point of the entire organization if it pans out.
