Three prominent NFL mock drafts for tonight's first round (8 p.m./ESPN-ABC-NFLN) do not include former Clemson cornerback Andrew Booth.
NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah and ESPN prognosticators Todd McShay and Mel Kiper Jr. all having Booth waiting until Friday to hear his name called.
McShay had picked Booth to go No. 25 overall to the Bills, but he now has Iowa State running back Breece Hall going there.
"The Bills need a cornerback, and perhaps they look at Clemson's Andrew Booth Jr," ESPN's McShay said. "But they also were No. 25 in the NFL in rushing yards from the running back position -- quarterback Josh Allen obviously padded the overall numbers -- and Hall has breakaway speed, reliable hands and the contact balance to break tackles along the way."
In his final mock of the 2022 NFL Draft's first round, Daniel Jeremiah projects two quarterbacks to be among the top 32 picks and forecasts the Cowboys to be one of seven teams that select a wide receiver.
isn't paying attention. Butt, although he CERTAINLY has first round ability, teams draft according to their needs, for the most part. The only constant exception to that rule used to be the Dallas Cowboys under Tom Landry. They would "take the best player available" at the time of their pick, and then make trades to fill their needs if the player taken happened to be at a position of strength for them. Seemed to work pretty darn well for them for a whole lot of years.
