Re: 2022 NFL Draft: Draft Prospects, Scouting

It's a very intriguing WR free agent class. Plenty of guys still in that prime age range that coming off down years, injury, or things just haven't quite clicked yet. There's also some higher priced former studs as well.

Along with the names mentioned in the above post(Gallup/Shuster)...

Mike Williams, SD
Adam Humphries, WFT
Allen Robinson, CHI
Russell Gage, ATL
DJ Chark, JAX
Jamison Crowder, NYJ
Christian Kirk, ARZ

These guys could certainly help and there's still upside there.

I've always found Pringle and Robinson interesting out of KC. At the very least, they can stretch out the field and should be cost effective. Trade target wise, I know interdivisional trades are tough to come by but I'm a fan of Tyler Johnson out of TB. I'd love to see what he could do in extended snaps. It's been quite a log jam over there.

I'm not typically big proponent in Bama draft prospects(far too often they peak out in college regarding upside), but Jameson Williams is a legitimate game breaker. I want plus there's that vaunted Ohio State connection there as well. You know the Saints love those.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Yes, please.

The early "mocks" have us selecting Jameson. Imagine coupling this burner with MT, Callaway, and Harty.

Take note of the Cincy WRs while youíre at it.

One of those guys could help us move the chains on Sundays.

What's everyone thoughts on Malik Willis?
Is he good enough passer,or is it more flash in lower competition. Similar size to Lamar and your already seeing him start to get banged up more and more

A lot of critics have the same "weaknesses" in his game ...

Failure to throw receivers open & bad reads. Will need a lot of coaching up and some will consider his competition in college.

What I found interesting on his NFL comparison: TAYSOM HILL but with more speed.

Maybe a Day 2, 3 guy.
