Aidan Hutchinson? Travon Walker? Kayvon Thibodeaux? One of those three men could be the #1 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft by this time next week. Or it could be someone else. That’s what makes this year’s NFL Draft so interesting is there doesn’t seem to be a consensus #1 pick among any of the experts. Usually there is at least one guy every year that almost everyone agrees will be the top pick in the draft. Not this year. That’s why this year’s NFL Draft could be the most unpredictable in a long time. A class without a stud quarterback, massive depth at wide receiver and countless other positions means a ton of intrigue a week from today.
On Thursday’s edition of Kevin & Query, the guys were joined by ESPN NFL Draft analyst Matt Miller to discuss the unpredictable nature of this year’s draft, what the Colts should focus in on and what position will have the biggest drop off round to round.
The need at offensive tackle is just so big that I don’t think you can overlook it. – ESPN NFL Draft analyst Matt Miller on whether the Colts would take a guy like QB Desmond Ridder over a position of need with their 42nd overall pick
When it comes to the Colts, Miller thinks they have plenty of needs but praised the work of GM Chris Ballard for his trades that landed the team players like DeForest Buckner, Yannick Ngakoue and Matt Ryan. He said Ballard has to start producing through the draft if the Colts hope to contend in the AFC, outside of the woeful AFC South.
If Deshaun Watson was a Carolina Panther right now and Baker Mayfield was still a happy Cleveland Brown, we would not be talking about Kenny Pickett or Malik Willis in the top-10. – ESPN NFL Draft analyst Matt Miller on how off-season moves have changed draft projections
