  • Pro football focus ranks the 2022 draft class.

    Parsons is number one, PS2 is 16 and Fields is 17 Javonte is 25. However, they ranked the broncos entire draft class as #2.

    1. LB MICAH PARSONS, DALLAS COWBOYS


    Parsons is in the midst of one of the most impressive seasons we've ever seen — not just from a rookie, but from any defensive player.

    The Penn State product seamlessly transitioned from the edge to off-ball linebacker countless times this season and has been dangerous at either role. The 12th overall pick recorded a 93.0 pass-rush grade, 22.4% pressure rate and a 24.8% pass-rush win rate this season — all of which are among the five best in the NFL, regardless of position. In coverage, he allowed 0.69 yards per snap and earned a 69.4 coverage grade, both of which rank 11th or higher among linebackers.

    16. CB PATRICK SURTAIN II, DENVER BRONCOS


    Making the jump from college to the NFL is tough for cornerbacks. Just ask Atlanta Falcons cornerback A.J. Terrell, who went from allowing 901 yards as a rookie in 2020 to allowing just 200 yards in 2021.

    Surtain was seemingly unaffected by the dreaded learning curve, though. After a few poorly graded games in the first quarter of the season, the Bama product has stepped up and been a legitimate CB1 for Denver. Since Week 7, he is one of the 25 highest-graded players at the position and has allowed more than 60 yards in coverage just once this season. He leads the rookie class in pass breakups plus interceptions with 12.

    17. QB JUSTIN FIELDS, CHICAGO BEARS


    As bad as the situation was in Year 1 for Fields, he showed a lot of promise in the Windy City with his arm talent and 4.4 speed. Fields recorded a 6.1% big-time throw rate and 14 explosive runs of 10 or more yards, both of which were fifth among quarterbacks in 2021. Fields rarely put the ball in harm's way from a clean pocket, as evidenced by his fifth-ranked 1.4% turnover-worthy play rate on clean-pocket dropbacks. It wasn’t a banner rookie campaign, but he still showcased the traits to be a star quarterback.

    25. RB JAVONTE WILLIAMS, DENVER BRONCOS


    Williams is an angry runner. His 0.31 missed tackles forced per attempt as a rookie — the highest in the NFL — backs that up. While running back isn’t an overly valuable position, Williams made a substantial mark among his counterparts in Year 1 in the NFL by ranking 13th at the position in PFF WAR generated.

    Creed Humphrey man. 63rd overall pick. How?

    No big surprises on that list except Hobbs. St. Brown is a bit surprising just because of how bananas he went once he became the primary receiver. They even turned him into their RB2 at one point.

    I think Jevonte would be way higher if he had more PT.

              The good news, whether these are really accurate or not, we had a great draft!!! I liked Parsons, but one vs two is hard to complain about. If it suits our long term plan, then who am I to differ.

                Great example of a player going to a team that used their skills properly. Guarantee he would not be top 100 if he went to Denver. I know he helped more than 1 fantasy football team win a Championship.

                11. WR AMON-RA ST. BROWN, DETROIT LIONS


                St. Brown has gone from fourth-round pick to top-20-graded wide receiver in one year. Over the last six weeks, he even ranks third in PFF grade behind only Cooper Kupp and Davante Adams.

                While he might not be beating press-man on the outside, St. Brown has done an excellent job finding soft spots in zone from the slot. He also hasn’t dropped a pass since Week 3 and has caught half of his contested opportunities.
                Time to build on the win and grow the team from some solid play higher level of play

                  The mock draft tools were fun last year. Can see a few people on the list I liked drafting. It was all luck as I do not research draft picks besides some reading.

                  PS2 and Javonte Williams both in top 25 and I never drafted either.

                    It would have been a grand slamRookie class if Paton takes all pro Micah Parson over PS2.

                    always take the front 7 stud over the DB. I have a major issue with team-building on any exec who builds a team from the outside in…
