Thursday, April 28th live from Las Vegas at 7:00 Central time the 2022 NFL Draft begins.
Day 2 draft picks
- North Dakota State WR Christian Watson (No. 34 overall)
- UCLA OT Sean Rhyan (No. 92 overall)
Day 1 grade: A
Analysis: The Packers combined the 53rd and 59th overall picks to move up for Watson, a tall and agile receiver who offers the downfield speed. Dealing a mid-second-round pick to move up 19 spots was a steep price to pay, but that’s what the market demanded given the heavy focus on receivers. As the first of seven wideouts selected in the second round, the North Dakota State product will be compared with guys like Skyy Moore and George Pickens for years to come. Rhyan played tackle in college but could slide inside because of his powerful base and mobility. He’s a perfect value in the third round.
