The Draft Network

● By Joe Marino
There's nothing quite like having a fresh crop of NFL prospects to evaluate and I'm excited that the introductory phase of scouting them is behind us. The 2021 NFL Draft cycle was the most bizarre one that I have ever been a part of. The lack of typical exposure to players and the dynamics of the competition last year made for a challenging evaluation process. With that said, there is still some carryover of those dynamics into our initial look at the 2022 class. As always, the NFL scouting process is fluid and that reminder feels more important than ever. The season will play out and the resumes of the prospects will expand. With that new information comes updated rankings. But for now, this is how I stack up the top 80 prospects for the 2022 NFL Draft entering the 2021 college football season.
