9. Denver Broncos: Malik Willis, QB, Liberty
There are several rumors that the Denver Broncos will be the home of Aaron Rodgers in 2022 — and if that ends up being the case, this pick will likely belong to the cheese heads. However, this could also be all speculation as there are also reports that Rodgers is more willing to return to Green Bay than previously thought. There’s also an outside chance he calls it a career.
Whatever unfolds, Denver needs to add another quarterback and they do that with Malik Willis at No. 9. Should Willis be the pick, it might be a bit of a shock. He’s not the consensus No. 1 quarterback but the truth is, he has a massive ceiling and in a class where there are no sure things, shooting high could be the best choice.
10. New York Jets (via Seattle Seahawks): Derek Stingley, CB, LSU
As mentioned earlier, the New York Jets went with two offensive players in 2021, and now, they double up on defenders. Not only that, but they make it two players for their secondary as they land Derek Stingley from LSU following their pick of Kyle Hamilton earlier.
If it feels like overkill to go after another defensive back, it shouldn’t. Stingley is far too talented to pass on at No. 10 and the Jets secondary could suddenly be a huge strength with these two being added.
