2022 NFL mock draft: What the CFP title game means for the draft : Monday’s College Football Playoff championship game between Alabama and Georgia will feature plenty of players who will have their names called in the 2022 NFL Draft. Which teams could make a play for one?
The 2021 NFL regular season is officially a wrap and the final draft order for non-playoff teams has been set. The first round of the 2022 NFL Draft will most likely feature a handful of players from tonight’s College Football Playoff championship game having their names called as the Alabama Crimson Tide goes head-to-head with the Georgia Bulldogs. These programs are two of the biggest pro factories in the country and hopeful fans of struggling NFL franchises will get to know the names of these prospects tonight. On Alabama’s side, offensive tackle Evan Neal is being projected as a top-five pick with some mock drafts having him go as high as No. 1 overall. The 6’7”, 350 pound force of nature has made 39 starts in his three years Tuscaloosa and has a team-high 33 knockdown blocks this season. He’s been versatile throughout his collegiate career, starting entire seasons at left guard, right tackle, and left tackle respectively.
