RIVALS CAMP SERIES: Info for 2022 series
1. Jordan Davis, Georgia
The 360-pounder is lower on some lists because he can’t play a ton of snaps but tops on mine as he reminds of Vita Vea.
2. DeMarvin Leal, Texas A&M
Lea is slipping out of the first round for many but his scheme versatility is there and I don’t see as much film regression as others.
3. Devonte Wyatt, Georgia
Wyatt made himself a lot of money this season and especially down the stretch as one of the more active tackles in this draft.
4. Perrion Winfrey, Oklahoma
Winfrey's motor and work ethic are off the charts and he’s a chaser. He can make plays anywhere.
5. Travis Jones, UConn
Jones is a massive zero technique who can take up a ton of blockers.
6. Logan Hall, Houston
Hall's athleticism can sneak up on you and he’s very quick off the snap.
7. Phidarian Mathis, Alabama
Alabama makes it hard on defensive linemen in practice with that great OL and Mathis has been tested.
8. Zachary Carter, Florida
Despite a dysfunctional season for the Gators, Carter’s stock remains high.
9. Travon Walker, Georgia
Walker is another UGA interior lineman on this list. This speaks to how well each did in the Bulldogs' rotation.
10. Boye Mafe, Minnesota
Mafe is a recent favorite of scouts who works well of contact and makes some splash plays.
