2022 NFL Draft Cheat Sheet: The “My Guys” List

Quarterback: Malik Willis, Liberty

I absolutely love Malik Willis. If the Jaguars didn’t have the No. 1 pick in the draft this year, or didn’t have Trevor Lawrence, I would honestly advise them to take Willis with the top pick. Athletically, Willis is a one of one athlete. There’s no one like him. He’s like if you put Josh Allen’s arm on Lamar Jackson’s legs and wrapped it all up in Russell Wilson’s stocky 6’1 build. Willis might not be the top quarterback in every single draft class, but his potential makes him so hard to ignore for me. He’s my favorite player in the class.

Running Back: Dameon Pierce, Florida

Fun fact: Dameon Pierce broke 40% of tackle attempts during his final collegiate season. Now, was he carrying a lighter workload with less attempts than most college backs during that season, leading to less tackle attempts? Absolutely. But Pierce runs with a level of violence that is unrivaled in this class, and he’s going to explode out of the backfield on every single carry. Up his workload, and watch him score touchdowns. I have very little concerns about his durability.

Wide Receiver: Treylon Burks, Arkansas

If you’re looking for a poor man’s Deebo Samuel, Treylon Burks is your guy. He may not have wowed scouts at the NFL Combine this year, but he plays so much faster than his 40 time when you watch him on tape. Burks was in the SEC, running away from guys who are going to be in the NFL soon, and who are also four inches shorter and 30 pounds lighter than him. I think I’ll take my chances at the next level.
