2022 NFL Draft preview: needs and rumors for each team; Jaguars thoughts on the No. 1 pick – Albert Breer, SI.com
Some draft rumors can be hard to believe, like the one about pass rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux.
First round: No. 24
Total Choices: 9
Needs: LB, WR, interior DL, OT, TE, QB
What do you want to know: Dallas could progress – I heard at some point last week that their radar was up for Thibodeaux to potentially slip. But the team is more likely to stay here and either take a traditional off-ball linebacker (Georgia’s Nakobe Dean?) or start injecting some youth into its aging offensive line group. To that end, Texas A&M guard Kenyon Green is a player other teams have connected to Dallas.
Cowboys will NOT draft Tyler Linderbaum, Dallas Insider predicts – Mike Fisher, CowboysSI.com
Drafting a guard or receiver is more likely for the Cowboys than taking Tyler Linderbaum.
While some mock drafts have the Dallas Cowboys taking a wide receiver with their first pick at No. 24, one of ESPN’s most recent NFL mock drafts has Dallas filling a supposed need on the offensive line. And Peter King agrees with the idea of centering Tyler Linderbaum in Dallas.
Problem: Cowboys scout-turned-media scout Bryan Broaddus disagrees. Rather strongly.
Writing Broaddus, bluntly: ‘I disagree with (King). … To be clear. I don’t believe Dallas will draft Linderbaum.’
Bold Predictions for 2022 NFL Draft from Bleacher Report Staff – Bleacher Report
A run on quarterbacks would help the Cowboys land the best player available at No. 24.
Gary Davenport: Four quarterbacks will be drafted in the top 10
There has been no shortage of wailing about this year’s quarter crop. In their latest simulation at ESPN, Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay predicted that two quarterbacks (Malik Willis and Kenny Pickett) will be drafted in the top 20. Well, I’m here to tell you that double that number is going to get drafted in half as many picks.
I’m already on the proverbial branch with the Detroit Lions dropping jaws taking Willis at No. 2 overall and with the Pittsburgh Steelers trading to catch a flagger – for the sake of discussion we’ll say a deal with the New York Jets to draft Desmond Ridder at No. 10. Now add the Carolina Panthers trapping Pickett at No. 6, the Atlanta Falcons rolling the dice on Sam Howell at No. 8, and you have four quarterbacks in the top 10.
Mailbag: Biggest Cowboys draft in years? – Staff, DallasCowboys.com
Cowboys media staff weigh in on the pressure the Cowboys face to find talent in this draft.
Robin: The way the Cowboys approach roster building, I don’t think you can say one project is more important than the last. They are all extremely important to their overall strategy of picking and developing players while simultaneously trying to fight for a title. As far as you are concerned, there is no doubt that they have multiple needs that they must meet successfully this year – and I say this knowing that they will probably return to free agency for more help in May. . It’s a big draft for the franchise, there’s no doubt about it.
David: This is significant, as this is how the organization has chosen to replenish the vast majority of its talent tier. I’m not sure it really stands out more than the others, though. This team is still good enough to win the NFC East, and they’ve also found and developed a franchise quarterback. I’m not saying you’re supposed to be happy with that, but they can survive a bad or mediocre draft without needing to go through a rebuild. Again, I understand the goal is to accomplish more than that, but this doesn’t strike me as a franchise-defining project.
Take 2: Cowboys LB Micah Parsons gets recasts for multiple hometown honors – Todd Brock, Cowboys Wire
Micah Parsons is human after all, if you put him on ice.
It’s reunion week for Micah Parsons.
The Cowboys linebacker and reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year is being honored in a variety of ways in his hometown of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
First, the 22-year-old was chosen to drop the puck on Sunday night for the Hershey Bears, an American Hockey League team (affiliated with the NHL’s Washington Capitals) based a few miles from Harrisburg.
Striding down the ice in a Bears jersey personalized with his number 11, Parsons was perhaps a little in the dark about how a face-off would work. Rather than pausing for a Bears player and from visiting Syracuse Crunch to joining him at center ice for the photo op, Parsons hit the end of the mat and hilariously dropped the puck in the most casual and unceremonious way possible.
