2022 NFL Draft Stock Report: Week 6

It’s another week for the 2022 NFL Draft stock report series. Week 6 is a big week in the college football season but I had a bit of a busy Saturday so you’re getting three games this week. On deck today includes Georgia vs. Auburn, Penn State vs. Iowa, and Alabama vs. Texas A&M. Let’s get right down to business.

Georgia vs. Auburn

It was another Stetson Bennett start. Maybe not a huge deal but maybe it should be. Not in the way you think. JT Daniels was really having a strong season but how many times do we have to watch this dude get hurt? He’s becoming really unreliable. I don’t like to hold injuries against guys but…

Not a complicated game here. Georgia is way more talented. It doesn’t help when the two guys on Auburn’s defense you really wanted to see (Zakoby McClain & Smoke Monday) both left the game early.

The focus remains on these Georgia tailbacks. Auburn always has a respectable front. I’ve seen Zamir White and James Cook so often now that it’s like cooking eggs at this point. I’m not sure how much I learned. White is going to be a productive bruiser. Cook has more potential because of speed, movement, and versatility. Let’s keep it moving.

Penn State vs. Iowa

What a game here. Defense, points, Big 10! This game was actually important.

Noah Cain did not look special at all and is now being out carried by Keyvone Lee. Brutal development for him. A once top tier back has lost his shine.

Jahan Dotson didn’t have a great game either. Sean Clifford left the game half way though and Penn State’s quarterback was probably worse than I am. Not a joke. I’m big into Dotson but one play REALLY stood out.

It’s getting hard to ignore Riley Moss. Unfortunately, he got nicked up in this game but this play right here on Dotson says a lot. There was a deep ball thrown by Penn State and Moss literally ran the route for them coming away with the interception. Iowa’s defense is great but sometimes it’s hard to separate individual talent. Not this time. Moss now has four picks on the year and has shown speed while smothering everyone in coverage. I’m in.

This was also a big Jaquan Brisker game for Penn State. We have known Brisker was talented as the former number one ranked JUCO player. You just don’t know if those guys are NFL guys before you see them. Brisker is one. I see a lot of Jamal Adams with a tick less explosion but way more coverage ability.

Brisker game away with a pick in this one. Brisker plays the run really well and tackles his ass off. In coverage, you have to know where this guy is. Spencer Petras had his worst game of the year and Brisker had almost everything to do with it.

Some other quick notes. I love Joey Porter Jr. That dude is so long he’s going to at minimum work in the NFL. Porter had a beautiful pass deflection in this one.

Nico Ragaini had a hell of a game. Is he an NFL guy? Probably not but we’ve seen white slot receivers like this before. 4 catches for 73 yards and a score in a game like this is a hell of a stat line. He’s going to end up running a decent 40 time too. Just keep it on the back burner.

Alabama vs. Texas A&M

Zach Calzada played the game of his life and Alabama actually lost. Make no mistake about it, Texas A&M never wins this game without Isaiah Spiller and he did it playing sparingly. The stat line doesn’t do it justice. 17 carries for 46 yards and a touchdown doesn’t tell the story.

Alabama did everything in its power to stop this man and he made them pay. Spiller added in 43 receiving yards for what it’s worth but who cares. Just watch the way this guy moves. Patience, vision, power; guy is the total package.

This is the RB1 for the 2022 NFL Draft. There’s not another back that’s even in the discussion.

Jalen Wydermyer finally had himself a game. 73 receiving yards and making big explosive chunk plays down the field. First round tight end? Hell no. Best one in the class? Probably. Not special enough to go super high but you can see he can at least move at a high level and that’s probably good enough to be a contributor at tight end.

I really just want to take time to discuss three of Bama’s weapons. Brian Robinson is the hardest one to figure out. We know he’s a fifth year guy and clearly doesn’t look like a Najee Harris or Derrick Henry. Robinson profiles more as a Kenyan Drake. He’s playing better than Drake in college but I still don’t know if he’s more physically talented.

This one is going to play mindtricks on me all year. Robinson looks good but how do you pull the trigger early here? 24 carries for 147 yards is as legit as it gets.

Both of the Alabama receivers are studs. John Metchie and Jameson Williams are both problems. However, Williams just looks more than a speed demon. How did this guy not sniff playing time for Ohio State?

10 receptions for 146 yards and two scores for Williams. He’s not the biggest guy in the world but damn this dude is smooth. Serious Yac ability and really looks like a natural receiver. Williams was a bit of an unknown coming into the year but I’m ALMOST ready to make some ridiculous statements on him. He’s that good.
