Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. EDGE. player. 32. Penn State. Arnold Ebiketie. 55

There are going to be a ton of edge rushers going in the first two rounds of the 2022 NFL Draft. There is just so much talent in this class and it’s hard to decipher who’s better than who from the group. Another name that has been gaining momentum is Arnold Ebiketie.

Transferring from Temple to Penn State for the 2021 season, Ebiketie not only didn’t miss a beat, but more than doubled his numbers. With the Nittany Lions, Ebiketie logged 18 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks off the edge.

He might need to add a bit more power to his game to be consistently effective at the NFL level, but the foundation is there for Ebiketie to be a problem for NFL offensive lines.

123. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Georgia. Quay Walker. 56. player. LB

Where Quay Walker falls in the 2022 NFL Draft is going to be a mystery until it happens. Some have him as the top linebacker on their boards, others have him outside the top five. It’ll be really hard to pinpoint which team might reach for him and at what time.

A team that could be in the mix is Dallas. The Cowboys saw a lot of production out of Micah Parsons, but Leighton Vander Esch has struggled to stay healthy and is on only a one-year deal. Vander Esch played in all 17 games last season, but missed 13 games between the 2019 and 2020 seasons.

Playing next to Nakobe Dean, we don’t really know the full potential of Walker. Dean was all over the field, so what Walker did was limited to what was left. In Dallas, he might be able to showcase that potential, but the Cowboys also know he should gel well with Parsons and play off him the way he did Dean.
