The Arizona Cardinals have had pretty good luck when it comes to taking defensive backs early. Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu, Budda Baker and Byron Murphy have all worked out rather well for the organization. Andrew Booth Jr. could be the next one on the list, and is in this 2022 NFL Mock Draft.

Despite the success in finding defensive backs, the Cardinals are once again in need of an upgrade. That’s what happens when you play in a division with high powered offenses like the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers.

Despite being the third cornerback off the board at this point, Booth has the skill set to be a great NFL player. There’s obviously things to clean up, but the skill foundation should allow him to grow very well over time.

The Dallas Cowboys have been known for their multitude of wide receiver options lately, but the unit took a hit this past offseason. Amari Cooper was traded to the Cleveland Browns and Cedrick Wilson left in free agency. While Dallas was able to re-sign Michael Gallup and add James Washington, they still lack the Cooper-level compliment to CeeDee Lamb.

The Cowboys have needs bigger than wide receiver, but if Chris Olave falls to them it will be hard to pass up. He’s the pick in this 2022 NFL Mock Draft. Olave’s speed paired with Lamb will make it very hard for opposing defenses to match up. It would also allow Gallup to stay in his role while James Washington and Olave could possibly split up the duties that Cooper and Wilson had.
