9. Seattle Seahawks: Trevor Penning, OT, Northern Iowa

The Seattle Seahawks always love to shock everyone in the first round of the draft, and this 2022 NFL Mock Draft will be no different. There is a rumbling about Trevor Penning going higher than expected, with a potential floor at 14 in Baltimore. He lands with Seattle here and becomes a road-grader in what assumes to be a run-first offense without Russell Wilson.

10. **TRADE** Pittsburgh Steelers: Malik Willis, QB, Liberty

Steelers Get: 10, 146

Jets Get: 20, 84, 2022 3rd

If Malik Willis falls near this slot, it’s a trade that makes perfect sense. The Steelers have really struggled to hide their love for Willis, who has been a big riser throughout the draft process. The upside is tremendous with the athleticism and production as a runner and the howitzer of an arm. Continuing to work on that middle of the field processing will be important, but the Steelers can exercise a little patience.

11. Washington Commanders: Kyle Hamilton, S, Notre Dame

The Washington Commanders get perhaps the best value in this 2022 NFL Mock Draft. Yes, Kyle Hamilton had a disappointing 40 time, but who cares. He’s versatile, has the instincts and play speed to cover ground on the back end, and is a phenomenal closer in the alley and tackler in space. Move him around the defense and the Commanders will be tough to move the ball on.

12. Minnesota Vikings: Jameson Williams, WR, Alabama

The Vikings are often mocked a corner, or an edge rusher, or Jordan Davis. Forget about it in this 2022 NFL Mock Draft. It’s time to get better on offense and light up the NFC in three-receiver sets. Jameson Williams has ridiculous speed and acceleration, and can be a phenomenal “Z” receiver opposite Justin Jefferson. A trio of Jefferson, Williams, and Adam Thielen is crazy.
