The 2022 NFL Draft was full of surprises, as Georgia defenders dominated the first round, all of the quarterbacks fell further than anticipated and we also saw plenty of interesting selections. Who knew a flock of kickers/punters would be taken in the fourth round?
There are 262 total picks to break down from the weekend, but let’s try to identify the best, worst and most interesting picks for all 32 NFL teams. The best and worst picks will be decided by the best and worst grades assigned to those selections by our CBS Sports NFL Draft experts Pete Prisco and Chris Trapasso.

Not every team made a “bad” pick per se, and some of the picks that are declared the “worst” for a class have grades as high as a “B.” If there are multiple picks with the same grade, I stepped in and determined the verdict. I also decided which pick was the most interesting for each team. Without further ado, let’s jump in.
Best pick (A): WR Khalil Shakir, Boise State (R5, P148)
Multiple-year big-time producer in college. Not a special athlete but is surprisingly stellar after the catch. Vision, cutting, contact balance. Showed awesome ability to contort his body near the sideline to make difficult grabs. Limited speed. More weapons for Josh Allen. (Chris Trapasso)
Worst pick (C+): OL Luke Tenuta, Virginia Tech (R6, P209)
Tall, but very short-armed tackle who may have to move inside in NFL. Hand work and anchor are solid but not true trump cards. Below-average athleticism getting to second level. Doesn’t bend at the waist but also doesn’t have high-end foot quickness to deal with fast outside rushers. (Chris Trapasso)
Most interesting pick (B+): RB James Cook, Georgia (R2, P63)
The brother of Dalvin Cook isn’t the exact same prospect Dalvin was, but the Bulldog…
