2022 NFL Draft prospects and their league comps
from Seth Trachtman, with YardBarker.com/www.yardbarker.com
With each draft class, scouts and draft prognosticators often make comparisons between top prospects and established NFL players. As these top 20 prospects get ready for the draft, here’s a look at some of their closest NFL comps.
Liberty QB Malik Willis | Comp: Lamar Jackson
Willis is a pure athlete who compares to Ravens superstar Lamar Jackson in both good and bad ways. He has elite mobility and the arm to make all the throws, but accuracy remains a huge question mark, completing only 61% of his passes last season. Willis will be a work in progress but has the potential to be a superstar.
Pittsburgh QB Kenny Pickett | Comp: Daniel Jones
As productive as Pickett was last season at Pitt, his small hand size and the subsequent fumbles remain a big concern. He has the accuracy and mobility teams want in a starter, but the turnovers will be an obstacle a la Daniel Jones.
North Carolina QB Sam Howell | Comp: Baker Mayfield
Howell resembles Baker Mayfield physically, and even his mannerisms can remind spectators of Mayfield. There’s also some feast or famine projection after Howell regressed last season after losing some of his supporting cast.
