We can almost guarantee that we’ll see two quarterbacks picked in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. After that, it’s harder to get a sense of it thanks to a QB class that’s got talent, but isn’t exactly jumping off the page and demanding teams to sell out to draft them.
Mississippi’s Matt Corral gets dinged for being undersized, but at 6-foot-2, he’s got a couple inches on Drew Brees. And since we mentioned Brees, Corral’s quick release will remind a lot of fans of the former Saints quarterback. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised with him getting picked by New Orleans in a few mock drafts recently.
So can he crack the first round? Here’s what the books say.
Matt Corral, first-round pick -150
He has the tools to be a solid NFL started for a team willing to develop him, rather than throw him into the first and expect a Pro Bowl in year one. He has an impressive arm despite his size, and he can create with his legs when a play breaks down. That’s going to be attractive to teams, and he should benefit from positional value as well as so many teams desperate for a signal caller. Your best bet is that Matt Corral will be a first-round pick.
