PIGSKIN’s 2022 NFL Draft Team Mocks BUCCANEERS

With the retirement of TOM BRADY, 2022 looked to be a serious rebuild year for the BUCS and GM JASON LICHT. And then BRADY un-retired. Almost miraculously, a bunch of BUCS VFA’s who looked to be going elsewhere changed their minds and signed on for one more pleasure cruise with Captain Brady at the helm. Not all of… Read More »

PIGSKIN’s 2022 Mock Draft BUFFALO

Everything is looking pretty rosy, especially from a football standpoint, in upstate New York. A new stadium is on the horizon, financed at about 50% by the taxpayers of New York State. They now have one of the Top 6 NFL QB’s running their Offense, in JOSH ALLEN. And they have quite obviously emerged as the new Beast… Read More »

PIGSKIN’s 2022 Team Mock COLTS

The end of the 2021 season was an absolute debacle for the COLTS , especially the play of their QB CARSON WENTZ in the last two games. Exit Mr. Wentz after the season,  at the specific request of Owner Jim Irsay. Then several weeks ago enter MATT RYAN, seasoned vet from the FALCONS, who are in full rebuild… Read More »

PIGSKIN’s 2022 NFL Draft Team Mocks… PACKERS

AARON RODGERS is back under a ball busting new contract. The contract is for 3 years, but RODGERS himself… who knows? The second biggest news is that DAVANTE ADAMS is actually the guy who really wanted out of Green Bay, no matter what. So ADAMS is a RAIDER with his old buddy DEREK CARR, his college QB. It… Read More »

PIGSKIN’s 2022 Team Mock Drafts J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets

This is the year. Yes, JETS fans I am talking to you. This is the year to move from ‘wanna be’ to legit Play-Off contender. And the reason is that with 9 total Picks, and more importantly 5 of them in the Top 69, it is time for JOE DOUGLAS to top off enough talent to make the… Read More »

PIGSKIN’s 2022 NFL DRAFT SAINTS team mock

So the Saints got out the credit card (again) and traded some Picks from 2023 to flip around with the Eagles, who were more than happy to settle for 2 Round One Picks instead of 3 for this year. The end result for now is that the Saints & Eagles pretty much own the middle of Round One…… Read More »

Pigskin’s 2022 Team Mocks COWBOYS

The Cowboys have been aggressive in trimming their roster stockpile of vets and getting under the Cap. The biggest move so far was the subtraction of AMARI COOPER, with his bloated salary.  WR JAMES WASHINGTON is being counted on to bolster the receivers corps sans COOPER. ER DANTE FOWLER is their most noteworthy VFA addition on D to… Read More »

Pigskin’s 2022 Team Mock Drafts STEELERS

By and large the Steelers have been a pay as you go franchise, and in keeping with that philosophy they currently hold 7 Picks, 1 in each of the first 4 Rounds. And as usual they have some holes to fill, and look to do so with Rookies. I currently count 10 new veteran additions to their depth… Read More »

Pigskin’s 2022 Team Mock Drafts

This morning we will explore the other side of rooting for a team that makes a bold move or two leading up to the annual Draft, thus leaving themselves with very few markers to use when the Draft actually arrives. But I will try to conjure up some Rookie help for two such rosters. I am going to… Read More »

PIGSKIN’s Team Mocks 2022 CHIEFS

After the bold trade of  TYREEK HILL, Mr. Mahomes Go-To Guy, the CHIEFS find themselves with 12 Picks in this Draft. The sad news is that 4 of them are in Round 7. Conversely though, 8 of them are in the top 135 Picks, with 2 Picks per round from 1-4. Last year, the team rebuilt their OL… Read More »

PIGSKINS Team Mocks 2022

Yes it is indeed time to present some Team Mocks in which I attempt to align needy NFL teams with some useful help for now and for the future. So, remember my rules here; No trades of Picks by teams, on my part. Players  will be taken based on my player rankings. I cannot make Picks of players… Read More »

2021 NFL DRAFT Team Mocks AFC North

And finally we get around to the AFC North, and home of LAMAR JACKSON. Can the RAVENS draft enough talent to help get this team over the Play-Off hump and into the Super Bowl with a scrambling QB like JACKSON? That is starting to become a question already. Will JOE BURROW be back and at full health in… Read More »

2021 NFL DRAFT Team Mocks NFC North

Welcome to Mr. RODGERS neighborhood. The reigning NFL MVP is still looking for that elusive second Super Bowl ring. None of his division opponents have done much to close the gap, at least for the time being. They all won some, lost some in the VFA ring, while the Pack sat things out because of looming Salary Cap… Read More »

2021 NFL DRAFT Team Mocks AFC South

This is the division which contains the most woeful team in the NFL from last season. That would be the JAGUARS, which means this division will add the consensus best overall player in this Draft in TREVOR LAWRENCE/QB, once the Draft gets underway. With football sage URBAN MEYER now at the helm, this team has a solid chance… Read More »

2021 NFL DRAFT Team Mocks NFC South

The Champion BUCS reside here.  And they intend to repeat that title as you might have noticed with their re-signing splurge. But nevertheless, the remainder of the division is determined to put up a fight. And those teams all have major holes to fill in quality personnel. With SAM DARNOLD now in Carolina, don’t look for the Panthers… Read More »

2021 NFL DRAFT Team Mocks AFC EastB

We move along to the “other” team greatly affected by the TOM BRADY move to Tampa, which of course would be the PATRIOTS. For the first time in forever they were not the AFC East champs, and the top dog for the division was the 13-Win BILLS from upstate New York. Right now, the BILLS have the top… Read More »

2021 NFL Draft Team Mocks NFC East

One of, if not the, “dud” divisions in the league for the 2020 NFL season. It looked for all the world like no one would ever step up to claim the Division Title and a trip to the Play-Offs. The team with no real name finally captured the dubious distinction of prevailing with a sub-.500, 7-9 record. Changes… Read More »

2021 NFL Team Mocks AFC West

So now let’s flip the coin to the AFC West, and within this division we have cash buyers, so to speak. This group of 4 holds a cumulative total of 34 Picks in this year’s Draft. No big dippers here, so to speak, but everyone has been judicious in their handling of Draft Picks, and now comes the… Read More »

2021 Team Mocks NFC WEST

Especially this year, I am labeling this the Wimpy Division. No, not like the the Wimpy Kid literary craze. Wimpy, as in that rotund guy from the old Popeye Cartoons, whose philosophy in life was stated in one simple sentence, “I will gladly pay you next Tuesday for a hamburger today”. This has become the division that uses… Read More »

NFL Team Mocks 2021

It is that time of year. Actually, it was gonna be last week already, but the Free Agency period was so hectic from the start that I hit the brakes. Doesn’t make sense to do Team Mocks when you don’t have a fairly clear picture of the team depth charts. It’s still a bit of a gamble, but… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts PACKERS

Even with GM BRIAN GUTEKUNST being a bit more adventurous building and maintaining his team’s roster than his predecessor, the PACKERS are still an organization that builds primarily through the Draft. With that in mind, I am eschewing the option of trading Picks around in my Mock, but BRIAN will not be so conservative is my guess right… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts DOLPHINS

As just about everyone knows, at least those interested in the NFL Draft, the Dolphins cleared out their roster before last season started and when the smoke cleared they possessed a league leading 14 Picks. Included in that number were 6 Picks in the Top 70, where starters are supposed to come from each year. I doubt the… Read More »

2020 team Mock Drafts RAVENS, PANTHERS, BRONCOS, LIONS

As always seems to happen, the calendar has outdistanced me toward the NFL Draft finish line. So it is time to double down and condense my Team Mock articles. I am covering 4 teams  in this entry, and omitting a thousand words per team by just giving Pick info without the thumbnail info. My apologies to teams fans… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts REDSKINS

Once again, it will literally be fascinating to watch the D.C. team operate it’s Draft.  There’s a new Head Coach in town by the name of RON RIVERA. And the team is still operated under Owner DANIEL SNYDER, with BRUCE ALLEN acting as DeFacto GM. However, I have a feeling that Coach RIVERA got himself a contract with… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts JETS

The Big Apple’s second franchise approaches their first full year under GM JOE DOUGLAS. He and his “guys” will be calling Draft Day shots for the first time next week. And it is an important Draft for a team that many see as finally making progress from a talent standpoint and having a full compliment of 8 Picks… Read More »
