It has been interesting to see the names that have been suggested as the first overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft throughout this whole process. Initially it seemed to come down to Oregon’s Kayvon Thibodeaux or Michigan’s Aidan Hutchinson with Thibodeaux having the slight edge. Once the Jaguars actually landed the pick though, Albama’s Evan Neal became the new favorite, as a replacement for the pending free agent left tackle Cam Robinson. More tape was watched, and suddenly N.C. State’s Ickey Ekwonu overtook Neal as the best tackle prospect and destined blind side protector for Jaguar’s franchise quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Then free agency happened, Cam Robinson was slapped with the franchise tag, and left tackle was no longer the glaring weakness it once was on this Jacksonville depth chart. We were back to Thibodeaux and Hutchinson at the top, only now there were questions about Thibodeaux’s character, motor and love of the game, which gave Hutchinson the nod. Next came the NFL combine and a new contender unveiled himself in Georgia’s Travon Walker. Despite the lack of production in college, Walker’s size, strength, athleticism and untapped potential may remind Jaguars GM Trent Baalke of a guy he drafted back in San Francisco by the name of Aldon Smith. While Hutchinson may be the safer pick, Walker may have the most upside and would pair with Josh Allen to wreak havoc on opposing AFC quarterbacks (a role former 2020 first round pick, K’Lavon Chaisson, has failed to live up to).
