The 2022 NFL Draft is less than a month away and that means finalizing grades and sticking behind those assessments. It is important to note that positional value is of little concern in these rankings. These are grades based on talent level rather than a historical survey of where centers and quarterbacks are going to be selected.

Without further ado, my updated top 100 rankings:

1. Ahmad Gardner, CB, Cincinnati
2. Derek Stingley Jr., CB, LSU
3. Kyle Hamilton, S, Notre Dame
4. Tyler Linderbaum, OL, Iowa
5. Kayvon Thibodeaux, EDGE, Oregon
6. Evan Neal, OT, Alabama
7. Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State
8. Aidan Hutchinson, EDGE, Michigan
9. Jameson Williams, WR, Alabama
10. Charles Cross, OL, Mississippi State
11. Travon Walker, DL, Georgia
12. Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas
13. Devin Lloyd, LB, Utah
14. George Karlaftis, EDGE, Purdue
15. Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia
16. Ikem Ekwonu, OT, N.C. State
17. Jordan Davis, DL, Georgia
18. Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State
19. Trevor Penning, OT, Northern Iowa
20. Jermaine Johnson, EDGE, Florida State
21. Devonte Wyatt, DL, Georgia
22. Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida
23. George Pickens, WR, Georgia
24. Drake Jackson, EDGE, USC
25. Lewis Cine, S, Georgia

The phrase I have been coining of late as it relates to the top of the draft is that I wish I could start my rankings at No. 3 overall. There is not a bona fide, generational-type talent in this class. The margin of separation between five players is razor thin. The placement of Hutchinson is going to surprise some fans. He has a higher floor than most in this class but is not a Myles Garrett-like prospect at the edge rusher position. Georgia is well-represented in the top 25 with six prospects. There are zero quarterbacks present but the reality is that at least two are probably going in the first round. Edge rusher is the most common position with six prospects, including Walker. Cincinnati's Gardner and Northern Iowa's Penning are the only two non-Power Five prospects.

26. Kenyon Green, OL, Texas A&M
27. Kyler Gordon, CB, Washington
28. Kenny Pickett, QB, Pittsburgh
29. Zion Johnson, OL, Boston College
30. Drake London, WR, USC
31. Malik Willis, QB, Liberty
32. Daxton Hill, S, Michigan
33. Logan Hall, DL, Houston
34. Kenneth Walker III, RB, Michigan State
35. Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington
36. Boye Mafe, EDGE, Minnesota
37. Bernhard Raimann, OL, Central Michigan
38. Matt Corral, QB, Ole Miss
39. Kingsley Enagbare, EDGE, South Carolina
40. Daniel Faalele, OL, Minnesota
41. Arnold Ebiketie, EDGE, Penn State
42. Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State
43. Demarvin Leal, DL, Texas A&M
44. Roger McCreary, CB, Auburn
45. Quay Walker, LB, Georgia
46. Zyon McCollum, CB, Sam Houston State
47. Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson
48. Darian Kinnard, OL, Kentucky
49. Jaquan Brisker, S, Penn State
50. Breece Hall, RB, Iowa State

The first quarterbacks appear on the list with Pickett, Willis and Corral all bunched together. The running backs are also present for the first time with Walker and Hall inside the top 50 overall. The cornerbacks are the most well-represented in this range with five, including two from Washington. 

51. Leo Chenal, LB, Wisconsin
52. Trey McBride, TE, Colorado State
53. Cole Strange, OL, Chattanooga
54. Christian Watson, WR, North Dakota State
55. Greg Dulcich, TE, UCLA
56. Jalen Pitre, S, Baylor
57. Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson
58. Dylan Parham, OL, Memphis
59. Tyler Smith, OT, Tulsa
60. Travis Jones, DL, UConn
61. Troy Andersen, LB, Montana State
62. Chris Paul, OL, Tulsa
63. Christian Harris, LB, Alabama
64. Perrion Winfrey, DL, Oklahoma
65. Max Mitchell, OL, Louisiana
66. Jamaree Salyer, OG, Georgia
67. Rasheed Walker, OL, Penn State
68. Phidarian Mathis, DL, Alabama
69. Derion Kendrick, CB, Georgia
70. Skyy Moore, WR, Western Michigan
71. Kellen Diesch, OL, Arizona State
72. Kyren Williams, RB, Notre Dame
73. Sam Howell, QB, North Carolina
74. Sam Williams, EDGE, Ole Miss
75. Dohnovan West, OL, Arizona State

There is not a more interesting group than 51-75. A few of the prospects have off-field red flags. Some tested off the charts at the NFL combine but are underdeveloped. Watson is the wide receiver prospect outside of the top 30 that has the potential to be a dominant boundary receiver. Colorado State's McBride is the first tight end to grace the list. Howell is the only quarterback in this range. The most prevalent position found is offensive line, which has nine representatives. 

76. Khalil Shakir, WR, Boise State
77. Nicholas Petit-Frere, OL, Ohio State
78. David Bell, WR, Purdue
79. Sean Rhyan, OT, UCLA
80. Zach Tom, OL, Wake Forest
81. Jashaun Corbin, RB, Florida State
82. Jalen Tolbert, WR, South Alabama
83. Damone Clark, LB, LSU
84. Kerby Joseph, S, Illinois
85. Wan'Dale Robinson, WR, Kentucky
86. Myjai Sanders, EDGE, Cincinnati
87. John Metchie III, WR, Alabama
88. Makai Polk, WR, Mississippi State
89. Dameon Pierce, RB, Florida
90. Jeremy Ruckert, TE, Ohio State
91. Isaiah Spiller, RB, Texas A&M
92. Cam Thomas, DL, San Diego State
93. Martin Emerson, CB, Mississippi State
94. Cordale Flott, CB, LSU
95. Terrel Bernard, LB, Baylor
96. Joshua Paschal, EDGE, Kentucky
97. Abraham Lucas, OL, Washington State
98. Matthew Butler, DL, Tennessee
99. Cade Otton, TE, Washington
100. Coby Bryant, CB, Cincinnati

Only 10 defensive players are in this final group. There are 10 SEC players in this range. It is a cornerback group with a lot of length. The top 100 essentially takes us to the end of Day 2.
