Jalen Tolbert, Dallas Cowboys

Position: WR
College: South Alabama
Drafted No. 88

The Dallas Cowboys had a gaping hole at the wide receiver position after shipping out WR Amari Cooper and losing WR Cedrick Wilson Jr. to the Miami Dolphins via free agency.

The Cowboys chose to fill other needs with the first and second-round picks (offensive tackle and linebacker, respectively), but get great value with Tolbert in the third round.

He recorded six games of 100+ receiving yards for South Alabama last season, the man can rack up some yardage. Dak Prescott just got a great second or third down-field option.

Greg Dulcich, Denver Broncos

Position: TE
College: UCLA
Drafted No. 80

Greg Dulcich was the second-ranked tight end in this entire class and Denver gets him at pick No. 80.

After shipping out Noah Fant to the Seahawks in the Russell Wilson trade, Denver needed to shore up that position and get massive value in the middle of the third round.

Dulcich recorded 17.3 yards per catch last season, which was the second-highest average among tight ends in college football last season, according to ESPN.

Aidan Hutchinson, Detroit Lions

Position: DE
College: Michigan
Drafted No. 2

The Detroit Lion had a really, really great draft, so it’s hard to pinpoint one great value pick for them.

But their draft started off with a bang by getting Aidan Hutchinson, a player regarded by most as being the best player in the entire draft.

Hutchinson has the potential to be the face of Detroit’s defense for the next decade.

Christian Watson, Green Bay Packers

Position: WR
College: North Dakota State
Drafted: 34

The Green Bay Packers had to shore up their defense and took two of the most talented players available with their first two picks— LB Quay Walker and DT Devonte Wyatt.

The team traded up to snag Christian Watson with the No. 34 overall pick to give Aaron Rodgers a talented new target to help fill the void left by Davante Adams, who was traded during the offseason to the Las Vegas Raiders.

John Metchie III, Houston Texans

Position: WR
College: Alabama
Drafted No.44

If Metchie hadn’t torn his ACL in the SEC championship game against Georgia, he would have been a near-lock to be a first-round selection in the draft.

The former Alabama standout has been pushing out content showing his recovery process and it looks like his strength and explosive ability have returned.

The Texans may have gotten the steal of the 2022 NFL Draft at pick No. 44.

Jelani Woods, Indianapolis Colts

Position: TE
College: Virginia
Drafted No. 73

Tight end Jelani Woods, an absolute specimen at 6’7″ and 253 pounds, could turn into a poor man’s Kyle Pitts.

Interestingly enough, new Colts QB Matt Ryan is already familiar with a freaky fast, big tight end and he’ll be able to send him on routes to get him open down the field.

Woods has a chance to play right away on an Indianapolis team that is in dire need of pass catchers.
