Our List of the Top 2022 NFL Draft Prospects

The 2022 NFL Draft will start on April 28th and will end on April 30th, 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada. There is a small school watch list created by Draft Diamonds where you can see all the names you should watch out for until the 2022 Draft.

Spencer Rattler, QB, Oklahoma

Spencer Rattler earned a 92.5 passing grade in 2020 and has shown quite a bit of talent, not only when it comes to throwing, but he also has a lot of playmaking potential. Rattler is even one of the candidates for the Heisman Trophy and has a chance to win if everything goes well for him.

Derek Stingley Jr., CB, LSU

Stingley is a cornerback for the LSU Tigers and since his first day, he has only allowed a catch on 40% of targets. Derek Stingley is majoring in Sports Administration and was selected as an All-American in 2019. He was also named Mr. Football Louisiana in 2018.

Kyle Hamilton, S, Notre Dame

Kyle Hamilton has an impressive 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds build, which is perfect for the safety position. He played as a backup at first but in 2020 after 41 tackles, one touchdown, and four interceptions he took over as a starter.

Kayvon Thibodeaux, Edge, Oregon

Thibodeaux is a defensive end for Oregon Ducks and was named Pac-12 Defensive Freshman of the Year in 2019. He won the Morris Trophy and a year after that was named the MVP of the Pac-12 FC Game. In the final three games for 2020, he achieved 23 pressures.

DeMarvin Leal, DI, Texas A&M

Leal is a defensive end for Texas A&M and during his first year at college, he achieved thirty-eight tackles and two sacks. His second year was even better with thirty-seven tackles, an interception, and 2.5 sacks. Leal has impressive movement skills for a man his size and will be a good addition to any team.

Evan Neal, OT, Alabama

Evan Neal started in all thirteen games during his freshman year and then switched positions to right tackle in 2020. This season he will be switching to left tackle to improve his overall grade. He was a CFP National Champion in 2020.

Sam Howell, QB, North Carolina

Sam Howell was the first true freshman to start a season-opening game for the University of North Carolina. He will most likely set a new school record for most touchdown passes in a career in his upcoming junior year.
