NFL Supplemental 2022 Draft – Cancelled

NFL Supplemental 2022 Draft – Cancelled

The NFL announced this week that the NFL Supplemental 2022 Draft has been cancelled. It is the third straight year which the league cancelled the Supplemental Draft and the seven year in the past decade that no players were chosen.

The NFL Supplemental Draft has long outlived its purpose. With the new transfer rules, third years removed from HS eligibility and Covid exemption season, players have multiple options related to college eligibility and pro qualification.

The days of QBs Bernie Kosar and Steve Walsh, receivers, Cris Carter and Rob Moore and LB Brian Bosworth declaring have long passed as new rules for player eligibility have allowed them many options to extend their college and pro careers. The NFL office should cancel this event permanently after it has shown virtually no high-profile prospects declaring with only a couple of marginal starters over the past two decades.

NFL Team Report – New York Jets

NFL Team Report – New York Jets

 New York Jets – 4-13 – GM Joe Douglas / Head Coach Robert Saleh – 2nd Year

         Key Team Needs:  1. CB       2. Edge       3. WR       4. S      5. OL       
                1st Round Picks – #4 & #10 selections – 9 total picks 

1. Cornerback – Jets finished with the worst overall defense in the league. Their pass defense was horrible despite some young defenders showing promise. They have made many additions in the draft and FA over the past three years with marginal results. With 9 overall selections, they could address both corner and safety a few times again this year. They probably have a chance to select the top corner at the 4th overall in Gardner or Stingley. Both could be available at the 10th selection, though most likely one is gone. They had one of the best safety duos in the game in Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye before an Adams trade and Maye FA loss terminated it. Young corners, Bryce Hall, Brandin Echols and Michael Carter showed interesting potential for their packages, though not the top cover outside man needed. They could draft into this strong class with a few top selections. They will give Kyler Gordon or Kaiir Elam consideration with one of their 2nd round choices.

    2. Edge – The Jets anxiously wait for the return of vet Carl Lawson who was injured in training camp after showing strong edge rushing. He is counted on as a main presence in their front seven. In his absence, the Jets lacked playmakers and were among the worst in the league in pressuring the passer. In a strong edge class, they have this a high priority and most likely addressed with one of their top two selections. They are debating Travon Walker, Kayvon Thibodeaux and Jermaine Johnson with their first selection. They like David Ojabo who is falling off an injury and could slide to the early 2nd round where he would be great value at #35.

  1. Wide Receiver – The Jets passing game ranked near the bottom of the league. Their receiving corps worked with rookie starting QB Zach Wilson who showed promise over a tough first year learning curve. Rookie wideout Elijah Moore showed big play ability and became a favorite of Wilson. Veteran FA signee Corey Davis had periods, though limited production and struggled with injuries. They lost Jamison Crowder in FA, but like Braxton Berrios for the slot role. Denzel Mims has been a major disappointment over his two seasons and faces a critical camp to define his role in this offense. They need more here and could address this twice with at least one a prime selection. They hope to draft a prospect with one of their top picks and like Garrett Wilson at the 10th selection. They also like Carl Pickens and Christian Watson in the 2nd round.

Insiders’ Insights  
The Jets have been 13-36 during Joe Douglas’s three seasons. He has directed two draft classes with minimal results from the 2020 group. LT Becton, wideout Mims, safety Davis and edge Zuniga all face a tough camp where they have to step up and produce. Last year’s class was a strong group in their initial season. QB Wilson holds the key and shows the talent to take the next step. Rookies, guard Vera-Tucker and Moore were excellent additions for the offense. Runner Michael Carter is a fine 1A type and fine addition. They will continue to build around Wilson. He has new FA tight end CJ Uzomah after the Jets had a season with virtually no production there. Uzomah is an excellent middle zone target. They will look to Connor McGovern to solidify the pivot. LT Mekhi Becton must prove durable and consistent after missing 16 games his first two seasons. Running back is another major need despite Carter. They like Breece Hall with the 35th selection. GM Douglas signed guard Laken Tomlinson and safety Jordan Whithead to address need areas, in addition to Uzomah. Mike backer CJ Mosley had an outstanding performance. They will pursue an edge defender after another subpar performance rushing the passer. They have not had a double-digit sack defender since 2015. Offense has pressing issues at running back and wide receiver which are earmarked with early round additions. Douglas had an aggressive FA plan and added a few quality changes. Jets hold five of the top 69 picks and 7 of the top 117 selections.

1st Round #4 Pick – Ahmad Gardner – Rare passer will be on the big stage from Day one.
Alternate Pick – Kayvon Thibodeaux – Fast edge rusher can make a difference.

1st Round #10 Pick – Kyle Hamilton – Rare passer will be on the big stage from Day one.
Alternate Pick – Derek Stingley – Cobra cover man would be excellent fit here.

         Wideout Jameson Williams – Alabama

Jameson Williams #1 – 6-2, 180                                    Alabama – Sp. 4.45
         NFL Comparison: DeAndre Hopkins                   Rating 91            

Smooth athletic true junior finished his career with an ACL knee injury which terminated an outstanding breakout performance in the potent Bama attack. Earned first team SEC honors in 2021 as one of the nation’s premier playmakers. Lanky well-built physique with length and solid muscle development. Fluid mover with very good agility, hands and athleticism to rank among the best in this class. Combination of deceptive speed and overall AA with the skills necessary to become an impact starter. Burst to get open and the leaping skills to go up for the ball and make plays. Displays soft reliable hands with the ability to extend outside the frame. Makes the difficult catch in traffic, earning him the go-to receiver role. Long strider with the ability to run away from defenders and the length to create problems for smaller cover men on 50/50 balls. Gets off the line well with quickness into his routes and the ability to sink his hips and separate coming out of his breaks. He has developed a full route tree and the ability to win vs the double team. Highly polished skill set to be a fine #1 receiver. His route running and defensive recognition are very advanced. Fights through the bump and run and stays on his routes well, though needs definite strength development and improved hand technique. Dangerous runner after the catch with elusiveness, sudden quickness and deceptive speed to run away from tacklers to break plays.

The Numbers: In 2020, he was buried in the deep Ohio St receiving corps which features multiple pro prospects. He totaled only 9 catches for 154 yards for a 17.1-yard average and 2 TDs. Took advantage of the transfer rule and landed at Alabama where he became an instant star on another deep unit. Only 10 kickoff returns in 2021 with 2 TDs. At the NFL Combine, he came in just under 6’2” and 179 lbs. He did not workout due to rehabbing from his ACL surgery. Also sat out the Bama pro day.

The Skinny: Provides a nice target with strong wiry frame and deceptive quickness to create space. Fast developing prospect really came on late in his career with continuous strong performances. Developed athlete with fine route running and defensive recognition skills to be an immediate factor. Reads coverage quickly and knows where the openings are to settle into zones and makes sound adjustments. Reminiscent of NFL playmaker DeAndre Hopkins in size, speed, running style and versatility. Well-rounded skill set to give his club a plug and play weapon. Top 20 prospect with definite upside if he improves his reads and route tree. Tough smart athlete made fast adjustments after transferring from Ohio St before the 2021 season Legitimate dangerous deep threat. If healthy, he is at a high level to come in and play immediately. NFL ready and possible first overall receiver in this deep class. Best efforts in big games where he made a difference. Playmaker with Pro bowl talent. Cards, Jets, Chiefs and Packers very interested.

NFL Draft Yearbook 2022 – 250 In-depth Scouting Reports – Top 300+ Rankings, 7 Round Mock Draft / NFL Player Comparison

Defensive End – Positional Overview:
This year’s defensive end class is a very strong group which could produce as many as six #1 picks. There are several blue-chip prospects at the top and probably 5 should go in the top 15 selections. There could be as many as 10-12 in the top three rounds with as many as 15 thru the middle rounds. Aidan Hutchinson is the best defender in this draft class and could be a top two overall pick. He is NFL ready and a three-down starter. Kayvon Thibodeaux is an explosive edge defender and among the best of this special class of edge defenders. He figures in the top few selections.

Kayvon Thibodeaux – Scouting Report

* Kayvon Thibodeaux #5 – 6-4, 255                Oregon – Sp. 4.60                         
                NFL Comparison: Demarcus Ware               Rating 93
Physically gifted true junior declared for the NFL Draft after an injury marred 2021 season limited by an ankle injury. Freakish athlete with rare combination of length, agility, speed and power to play in both NFL fronts. Long angular frame with long arms (33 1/8”) and quick feet to play both outside positions in either pro scheme. Shows explosiveness off the snap to be an impact speed pass rusher with the size, length and natural strength to also win as a power rusher. The ideal defender as a weak side end in a 4-3 scheme, as well as the agility and foot quickness to play outside in a 3-4 front. His versatility and upside potential make him attractive to all defenses and should land among the top overall selections. Despite facing double team blocking, he continued to make impact plays along the talented Ducks’ front. Rare physical traits for the position with the agility of a linebacker and power of a lineman. Chiseled physique and well distributed with the room to add muscle to fit the prototypical measurables for an elite pro edge rusher. Shows fine functional strength to stack and shed blockers, though can be engulfed at the point at times. Uses his good height to his advantage and uses his long arm to get blockers off his body and follow with technique to separate and burst to the ball. Very good movement skills and footwork for his size and when called upon to drop into coverage on zone blitzes, showed good agility and coordination. Displays a very good spin move to disengage blockers with a great closing burst. Special quick-twitch athleticism and comes off the snap quickly and shows rare flexibility to bend the edge. Consistent with his knee bend and use of leverage. Currently his pass rush is a nice combination of speed and power, though he needs to refine and add new moves to become a premier pro edge defender. Shows the speed to be very effective in pursuit to the opposite sidelines or downfield. Fine length to effectively disrupt passing lanes and be a factor deflecting passes. Shows a strong jarring hand punch, though needs further development to gain a consistent early advantage. Shows deceptive strength to hold the POA and win most individual battles, though his narrow frame makes him vulnerable at the point. Relies mainly on his initial burst and swim move to beat blockers and needs to develop moves like a rip and using his long arm better especially facing the double team. Must play with good pad level to maintain leverage. Sound awareness with agility and balance to move down the LOS to finish. Fine short area burst to win early on the down and penetrate the backfield. Over the 2021 season, he started 11 games and finished with 50 tackles, 12 TFL, 8 QB hurries, 1 PBU, 2 FF and 7 sacks and earned 1st team Pac-12 honors. His production slipped late in the season when he received special attention weekly with double team blocking. Over his three-year career, he played in 31 games with 123 tackles, 35.5 TFL, 3 FF, 7 PBU and 19 sacks. In three Pac-12 championship games, he combined for 21 QB hurries, 13 tackles, 5.5 TFL and 4.5 sacks. At the NFL Combine, he came in at 6’4” and 254 lbs. with 33 1/8” arms and 9 3/4” hands. Ran a 4.58 time with a 1.59 ten-yard split. Added 27 reps in the lifting. Excellent fit for weakside end in a 4-3 set or the attack backer role in a 3-4 scheme. Talented defender with the complete skill set, though must dispel the somewhat hot and cold label. Blue chip #1 prospect with the skills similar to Demarcus Ware in AA, body type and Pro Bowl potential. Must adapt to facing double teams to be an elite NFL defender. Dedication to football has been questioned, though his production disputes that. Top 5 pick with incredible upside and scheme diversity to become a difference maker. Special elite edge rusher.

Trevor Penning #70 – 6-7, 325 –  Northern Iowa – Sp. 4.90
NFL Comparison: Kolton Miller –  Rating 90
                                       Northern Iowa Athletics
Tall physical senior has been one of the best left tackles in college, starting all four years at that position with MVC honors his final three seasons. Long athletic frame with long arms and the footwork to develop into a pro left tackle after 33 starts. Earned an invite to the Senior Bowl where he held up very well on the outside, displaying developed skills to handle top edge rushers. Massive agile athlete displays excellent setup in pass pro with natural movement skills to slide and adjust easily to counter moves. His current level of development may allow him to start immediately at tackle. Showed the tenacity in his game to face NFL edge talent. As a pass blocker, displays very good initial quickness, balance, flexibility and patience. Uses his long reach and strong punch to contain early and sustain through the play. He allows the rusher to come to him and rarely over-commits and under control coming out of his stance. Smooth in his kick-slide and lateral agility. He has the ideal physical package for left tackle in the NFL. Trim physique and carries no excess weight. Displays a quick hand punch, but needs to show the ability to recoil. Improved his punch power with experience, though must improve his ability to handle counter moves. When he locks on to edge rushers, he consistently wins. As a drive blocker, he has the ability to move defenders on power plays. Able to make the reach blocks and angle blocks on inside and outside zones. When asked to pull, he shows fairly good quickness and get good fits on the 2nd level. Bends his knees well with leverage to anchor and stop the bull rush, though needs to refine that due to his great length. At times, plays with a thin base and gives ground when his technique falters and rushers can give him trouble when he plays high. Shows flexibility in his kick slide. Very tough blocker with the tenacity to sustain and dominate throughout. Frame, arm length and the footwork to mirror rushers cam earn him an early starting tackle grade. At the Senior Bowl, he performed very well when taking a big step up in competition. At the NFL Combine, he came in at 6’7” and 325 lbs. with 34 1/4” arms and 10 1/8” hands. Ran a 4.89 time with a 1.70 ten-yard split. Did not lift. Added a 28” VL, a 9’3” BJ, a 4.62 shuttle and 7.25 three cone. Very good positional drills with a solid overall performance. Similar to tackles like Kolton Miller with the prototypical skill set for the demanding leftside spot. Older fans will remember former Giants’ Jumbo Elliott as very similar physically and demeanor. Developed left tackle with huge upside potential. Probable mid-1st round pick with starting grade, though needs further strength, conditioning and technique work. Needs to be consistently sound technically to earn a starting position. Complete physical talent to improve further. Top 15 prospect with high ceiling and probable Pro Bowler in time. Nasty NFL ready mauler.

Linebacker Prospect

Chad Muma #48 – 6-3, 240 – Wyoming –  Sp. 4.60
           NFL Comparison: Logan Wilson                    Rating 82
Physical dependable senior excelled both downhill and between the hash marks in his two-starting seasons for the Cowboys. Back-to-back 1st team MWC performer with over 200 tackles during that period. Aggressive and passionate and plays hard till the whistle. Good teammate and hard worker. Above average quickness and playing speed and displays a burst to consistently close. Good range sideline-to-sideline with sound angles and the ability to get through traffic and scrape. Top athleticism downhill and laterally with the agility and COD to play in space. Developing core strength at his 240 lbs. which he is beginning to use effectively as a huge hitter. Plays behind his pads and rarely on the ground. Strong active hands and has learned to use them in all facets. Potential to develop into a 3-down backer with improvement in coverage ability. Former safety is a quick study in coverage and capable of being an early three down starter. Reliable run-plugger does a plus job of stopping runs before they can turn into positive yardage. Displays good peripheral vision and decisive in his read/react ability. Goes where his eyes tell him. Takes few false steps and trusts his vision and instincts. Shows awareness and technique to slips blocks well. Maintains good balance with the instincts to react which allows him to play fast. Squares himself up to ball carriers to create an impact and make the tackle. Plays within himself and has been a consistent tackler vs a high level of competition and big games. Capable blitzer with the burst to close, though relies more on power than technique. Consistently slips/sheds blockers in space with a combination of technique and power. Sifts well through trash and tough to get off his feet. Struggles vs big interior blockers and prefers to slip with strong hands and quick feet. Able to disengage and stay on his feet. Though not a quick twitch athlete, he will be a starter in time. In pass coverage, he is proficient in zone and short area currently, though needs development in the deeper zones. Potential to cover faster TE’s up the seam, though not ready now. Good lateral range, though can be exploited by fast backs in space when asked to cover too much ground. Also, shows the versatility to play Sam in the 4-3 set. As a senior, he totaled 142 tackles, 9 TFL, 1 PBU, 3 picks and 2 sacks, starting all 13 games. Earned DPOY and 1st team MWC honors. At the NFL Combine, he weighed in at 239 lbs. and 6’3” with 31 5/8” arms and 10” hands. Ran a 4.63 time with 27 reps and had a 40” VL, 10’9” BJ and did a 4.28 shuttle and 7.06 three cone. It was a very good workout. Top AA and play recognition ability and he is able to contribute early and possibly start. Intelligent and heady and understands assignment football while able to carry them out well. Rising savvy backer and top 50-75 prospect with fast development and the intangibles to make an impact as both a starter and special teams’ performer.

Wide Receiver Prospect

Christian Watson #1 – 6-4, 210 – North Dakota State – Sp. 4.35
            NFL Comparison: CeeDee Lamb                          Rating 88
Fast sure handed senior was the go-to guy for the Bisons over his career. Earned first team honors in 2019. Good lean athletic frame with speed and the running skills to be an impact weapon in the NFL. Speed to get deep regularly on the nine route and developing the nuances as a route-runner to separate from coverage and run the full route tree. Good lean muscle development and adequate functional strength, but could benefit from adding more muscle to his frame. Smooth runner moves in a gliding style, yet showed good elusiveness as a runner after the catch with efficient footwork to create space and break the play. Outstanding hand-eye coordination and able to elevate and high point the ball. Strong hands and usually able to maintain control while taking hits. Natural athlete and polished in many critical aspects of play. With experience, he has learned to run better routes with quicker cuts. Able to maintain concentration on making the catch and separate from defenders. Alert and works his way back to pass. Reading zone coverage better and learning how to find and settle in the soft spots. Adequate as a blocker, but needs hand technique work to improve and sustain.
The Numbers: In 2021, he played in 12 games and had 43 receptions for 801 yards for 18.6 yard average and 7 TDs. At the Senior Bowl, he had a good performance, especially running routes with quick adjustments on the ball. During his career, he caught 105 passes for 2140 yards for a 20.4 average and 14 TDs. At the NFL Combine, he came in just over 6’4” and 208 lbs. Ran a 4.36 time with an exceptional 1.46 ten-yard split time. Added a 38.5”VL and an 11”4”BJ. It was an excellent workout. Similar to CeeDee Lamb in size, speed, body type, AA and development.
The Skinny: Fast athlete with speed to take the lid off a defense. Developing receiver with definite playmaking ability to be a weapon in a few roles both outside and in the slot. Impact in three wideout sets early. Playmaker needs to prove he will go over the middle consistently and must learn the full route tree to be a complete receiver. Fast rising top 50 prospect on my board after the NFL Combine. Probably goes in the early rounds with the strong demand at the position for playmakers. Emerging talent with the tools to continue to improve and be a huge factor in the right situation. Versatile playmaker can provide impact in time and be a difference maker. Incredible ceiling to become an NFL star.
