We’re supposed to be big on the NFL Draft. Lots of coverage, tagging everything, commenting and running threads. Well, I guess for some people, but watching the Las Vegas show last night was like watching a CGI party with fake music, canned music, and a few oddities appearing on stage with “The Commish.” Presumably they were trying to weed out some of the loud, repeated “boos” rising from the crowd, but we’re not all supposed to notice. Roger Goodell isn’t popular with many people, and the crowds make sure he knows it.
So let’s shoot down the first round of 32 picks that took two hours too long to announce (most teams were already settled on “The Pick is In” graphics and the talking heads of Mouse Corp had to vamp until The talk was thick, and about to get thicker because except for a few obvious picks in the first round, there was nothing “hype-ie” to say. of the 2022 draft was more like the 3rd or even the 4th round of most memories.
So here is the table and the comments to the effect:
2022 NFL Draft Round 1 – Summary
|1||Jacksonville Jaguars||Travon Walker||Edge Rusher/DE||Georgia||Ok Choose but not a first round more like the 3rd round|
|2||Detroit Lions||Aidan Hutchinson||Edge Rusher/DE||Michigan||It was an actual rated first-round pick|
|3||Houston Texans||Derek Stingley Jr.||rear corner||USL||No way it’s a first round quality pick 2nd round at best|
|4||New York Jets||Gardner Sauce||rear corner||Cincinnati||Another 2nd round maybe even 3rd – good player not an A quality|
|5||New York Giants||Kayvon Thibodeaux||defensive end||Oregon||Giants drafted Daniel Jones as first-rounder – Maybe Kayon is making up for that gaffe|
|6||Carolina Panthers||Ikem Ekwonu||Offensive tackle||NC status||He’s another 3rd maybe 4th round stuffed in this place|
|7||New York Giants||Evan Neal||Offensive tackle||Alabama||2nd round pick in any other good draft but not an A player|
|8||Atlanta Falcons||Drake London||wide receiver||USC||1-No where near a 1st round pick 2-Falcons don’t have a QB a WR is a waste|
|9||Seattle Seahawks||Charles Cross||Offensive tackle||Mississippi State||4th round at best|
|ten||New York Jets||Garrett Wilson||wide receiver||ohio state||Another attempt by the Jets to break the Namath curse – again NO QB!|
|11||New Orleans Saints||Chris Olave||wide receiver||ohio state||Again and again – they don’t have a QB, a wideout is a waste|
|12||Detroit Lions||jameson williams||wide receiver||Alabama||He’s a quality 1st-round pick picked by a terrible team|
|13||Philadelphia Eagles||Jordan Davis||defensive tackle||Georgia||Pick a 3rd or 4th round guy in the 1st round – an Iggles move|
|14||Baltimore Ravens||Kyle Hamilton||Security||our Lady||Finally a solid quality choice in the 1st round|
|15||Houston Texans||Kenyan Green||Offensive guard||Texas A&M||Puh-leeze it’s a 5th round try guy – the GM here ain’t top notch|
|16||Washington Commanders||Jahan Dotson||wide receiver||Penn State||A 4th round pick for a team without a QB|
|17||Los Angeles Chargers||Sion Johnson||Offensive Guard||Boston College||3rd round quality pick maybe even 4th Lecitus Smith was better.|
|18||Tennessee Titans||Treylon Burk||wide receiver||Arkansas||4th round quality could help but too expensive|
|19||New Orleans Saints||Trevor Penning||Offensive tackle||Northern Iowa||Again with the puh-leeze – 6th or 7th round FCS player with FCS skills|
|20||Pittsburgh Steelers||Kenny Pickett||Strategist||pitt||Rumors of it happening, they had been working with him for several years – 2nd or 3rd round prospect though|
|21||Kansas City Chiefs||Trent McDuffie||rear corner||Washington||Who the hell knows? Need a target got a target.|
|22||Green Bay Packers||dock walker||Linebacker||Georgia||Why does he feel like it was just because he had a big G on his helmet?|
|23||Buffalo Tickets||Kaiir Elam||rear corner||Florida||4th round pick but SEC school – butterfly meets flame|
|24||Dallas Cowboys||Tyler Smith||Offensive tackle||Tulsa||Another lower quality pick – maybe 5th or 6th|
|25||Baltimore Ravens||Tyler Linderbaum||Center||Iowa||3rd round picked in 1st – bad enough to do it|
|26||New York Jets||Jermaine Johnson II||defensive end||state of florida||Yeah – a real 1st round pick he’ll play in 2022|
|27||Jacksonville Jaguars||Devin Lloyd||linebacker||Utah||3rd or 4th round quality pick numbers Jags yaknowaddamean?|
|28||Green Bay Packers||Devonte Wyatt||defensive tackle||Georgia||G’s like these G’s I guess – overly worded|
|29||New England Patriots||weird cole||Offensive Guard||Chattanooga||Belichik’s Huskey chosen by smell – stupid choice|
|30||Kansas City Chiefs||Georges Karlaftis||Edge Rusher/DE||Purdue||Along with all the other C level players, this one is a first|
|31||Cincinnati Bengals||Hill of Dax||Security||Michigan||This one deserved first-round status – it will start this season|
|32||Minnesota Vikings||Lewis Cine||Security||Georgia||Yes – this one is also a quality first-round pick – he will play too|
We’ll add all of these up as we create the tables and compile statistics on who is chosen where they come from and how likely they are to survive the first week of camp.
There may be some Hokies on the board tonight, we’ll see – probably not, but given the nature of the 1st round, it looks like nothing is “normal” for this draft.
So, what is your impression of this 1st round grid?
Do you know the American Standard Sign Language gesture for “boring”? Move your finger a little to the left… Ugh
Hype and commercials… then these choices… I just wanted to scream SHUT UP!!! talking heads. They needed to move faster, this set of picks wasn’t worth the fake drama.
It’s the NFL, it’s all about the hype. People were having fun. The picks, well they’re going to get “paid” and that’s what they wanted.
I’m watching History Channel tonight.
