Tipico Sportsbook 2022 NFL Mock Draft

A closer look at the 2022 NFL Draft

The NFL Draft is quickly approaching, and the draft lines are waiting for you in the Tipico Sportsbook app. Individual draft spots, first quarterback, and more are live and specific lines are available upon request.

Welcome to the Tipico Sportsbook 2022 Mock Draft. Through this exercise, we’ll take a look at what we would do if in the front office of each team selecting. Trades are real and trades are included. These selections are made based on positional value, team construction, scheme fit, and overall talent of the players.

  1. JAX – Evan Neal (OT) – Give Trevor Lawrence the best chance to succeed.
  2. DET – Aidan Hutchinson (EDGE) – No-brainer. Hutchinson is a high-floor selection and a great fit for the Detroit’s defense.
  3. HOU – Travon Walker (EDGE) – A powerful defensive force to lead Lovie Smith’s defense
  4. NYJ – Ikem Ekwonu (OT) – Give Zach Wilson the best chance to succeed. Tackle is the biggest need on this offense.
  5. NYG – Charles Cross (OT) – Give Daniel Jones protection to give him time to connect with his highly-paid receivers.
  6. CAR – Matt Corral (QB) – The best quarterback in the draft and the best fit for Matt Rhule’s offense.
  7. NYG (via CHI) – Ahmad Gardner (CB) – Possibly the best prospect in the entire draft gives New York flexibility with upcoming contract decisions for Bradberry and Jackson.
  8. ATL – Malik Willis (QB) – Can learn behind Marcus Mariota until he is ready to take the reins. He fits well in Arthur Smith’s run-heavy offense and had some of his best games on turf.
  9. SEA (via DEN) – Jordan Davis (DT) – A perfect fit for the Seattle defense, Davis adds some intimidating size to their defensive front.
  10. NYJ – Kayvon Thibodeaux (EDGE) – An explosive pass-rusher falls into the Jets’ lap.
  11. WSH – Drake London (WR) – Carson Wentz has had his most success throwing to big receivers and London is the biggest in this draft. He compliments the speedy group currently on the roster and can become the #1 if they choose to move on from Terry McLaurin.
  12. NO (via MIN) – Jameson Williams (WR) – The Saints add their top wide receiver choice and lessen their dependence on Michael Thomas, who could be out the door in the near future.
  13. HOU (via CLE) – Derek Stingley (CB) – The Texans take a change on a raw talent.
  14. BAL – Devonte Wyatt (DT) – The Ravens add a starter-ready defensive tackle to an aging front.
  15. GB (via MIA/PHI) – Garrett Wilson (WR) – Green Bay trades up for the best route-runner in the draft.
  16. MIN (via IND/PHI/NO) – Kyle Hamilton (S) – The slide ends for Kyle Hamilton and he becomes the new keystone to a rebuilding Minnesota defense
  17. LAC – Trevor Penning (OT) – The Chargers select an athletic offensive lineman for the 2nd year in a row to sure up an already explosive offensive attack.
  18. PHI (via NO) – George Karlaftis (EDGE) – Karlaftis is young, gifted, and has a ton of room to grow. He will make an instant impact to a team that finished near the bottom of the league in sacks in 2021.
  19. NO (via PHI) – Chris Olave (WR) – The Saints double-down on wide receiver with Olave, diversifying their offense and creating a new, young core to help Jameis Winston and/or attract a new quarterback next season.
  20. PIT – Desmond Ridder (QB) – The Steelers add Ridder in hopes that he can be their quarterback of the future.
  21. NE – Jermaine Johnson (EDGE) – A talented pass-rusher falls to the Patriots and becomes an immediate starter. He fits the mold of a Belichick pass-rusher.
  22. PHI (via LV/GB) – Andrew Booth Jr. (CB) – The Eagles trade down and grab their starter opposite Darius Slay.
  23. KC (via AZ) – Treylon Burks (WR) – The Chiefs use their newly acquired draft capital to move up and select a wide receiver who can line up all over the formation.
  24. DAL – Tyler Linderbaum (C) – The Cowboys take the best interior lineman in the draft to fill a major weakness from last season.
  25. BUF – Christian Watson (WR) – The Bills offense gets even more explosive with combine standout, Christian Watson.
  26. TEN – Quay Walker (LB) – Mike Vrabel gets a rangy, athletic linebacker as a new centerpiece of his defense.
  27. TB – Kenyon Green (OG) – Tampa Bay adds a talented and versatile offensive lineman to improve a thin group which plagued them in the playoffs
  28. PHI (via GB) – George Pickens (WR) – The Eagles need a receiver who can beat press coverage. Pickens has the size and speed to win on the outside
  29. KC (via SF) – Daxton Hill (S) – The Chiefs replace the Honey Badger with an equally dynamic safety prospect.
  30. AZ (via KC) – Jalyn Armour-Davis (CB) – Arizona finds their long-term solution at cornerback. Armour-Davis has impressive traits and can take a receiver out of the game
  31. CIN – Trent McDuffie (CB) – The defending AFC Champions add a corner with great insticts.
  32. DET (via LAR) – Devin Lloyd (LB) – Detroit passes on a second chance at a quarterback to add a second powerhouse to their defense.

Lorenzo's Locks: Divisional Round Games

The Green Bay Packers are coming off their first round bye and are the healthiest they have been all season long. Aaron Rodgers is surgical at home, especially when coming off a bye. Now although the 49ers have been red-hot in recent play, their two best defenders, Bosa and Warner, were injured vs the Cowboys and may be slowed down against Green Bay. The Packers also went 7-1 against the spread this season at home. Lorenzo is locking in the Packers and the spread. Onto the AFC, Lorenzo likes the Buffalo Bills in an upset. Buffalo played their most complete game of the entire season last week against New England. The Bills have been clicking on all cylinders and are 4-1 against the spread over their last five. Their offense is comparable with Kansas City's and Buffalo has the edge on defense. The Chiefs have been unreliable at home, while the Bills excel on the road as underdogs. Lorenzo is locking int the Bills to win and to cover the spread. The Los Angeles Rams vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers has everything in the making for an offensive showdown. Tom Brady knows how to pick apart defenses and with the Rams electric offense, Lorenzo sees this game as a shootout. In week 3, the Rams beat the Bucs and 58 points were scored. Although Lorenzo likes the Bucs in this matchup, he is locking in the OVER in total points scored.

BETFTW! On Site Wild Card Weekend

The AFC Wild Card game on Saturday, January 8th features the New England Patriots traveling to Buffalo to take on the Bills. We all remember what happened the last time these two faced off in Buffalo. New England has cooled down after their mid-season hot streak, winning only one of their last four, including a Week 18 loss to the Miami Dolphins. This season, New Englands holds a better record against the spread than the Buffalo Bills. Bills beat reporter Sal Maiorana highlights the rubber match and game three between these two teams this weekend. Weather will continue to be a factor in their matchups. This has the chance to be one of the coldest games in Bills and Patriots history, and even close to league history. Wind chills are expected to be 10 to 15 degrees below zero. So who will this favor? The Patriots took advantage of the wind in their first matchup against Buffalo and pulled off the win. Then Buffalo's offense took control and came out with a win in Foxboro. If the wind is manageable, Maiorana expects a great game for Josh Allen. Josh Allen is the X-factor. The last time these two teams faced, Allen lit up the Patriots for three touchdowns and over 300 yards. If the Bills can contain the running game and make Mac Jones be a true quarterback, Maiorana thinks Buffalo can handle their business and move on to the divisional round.

Lorenzo's Locks: Wild Card Weekend

The Playoffs are here and Lorenzo isn't taking any chances against Tom Brady. The Bucs continue to have one of the top scoring offenses in the NFL, with Tom Brady locked in. The Eagles have also been hot as of late, closing out the season winning six of their final eight games, but the competition they played was incredibly weak. Some of their wins came against the Jets, Giants, and two against Washington. The Eagles secondary is also weak and Tom Brady will look to expose their defense. Since Brady joined Tampa Bay, the Bucs are 9-5 against the spread at home. Lorenzo likes the Bucs winning and covering the spread. The hottest team in the NFC down the stretch, may have been the 49ers. In their final 11 games, San Francisco went post an 8-3 record in wins and against the spread. Although Dallas likes to establish the run early, the 49ers are built to stop the run. Their pass-rush generated 24 sacks in the last six games of the season and will look to pressure Dak Prescott early. If the 49ers can avoid turnovers, Lorenzo sees them covering the spread and upsetting the Cowboys in Dallas. Finally, a divisional matchup to play each other for the third time this season. The Rams face the Cardinals with two electric offenses taking the field. The Rams have showed inconsistencies with their superstar lineup and haven't lived up to their expectations. The Cardinals are great on the road as underdogs and Lorenzo sees this game coming down to the wire and decided by less than a field goal. He predicts the Rams to win, but the Cardinals to cover.
