Analyzing every pick in the 2022 CFL Draft

The 2022 CFL Draft has finally arrived and I’m going to analyze every pick as the event occurs live.

I’ve graded each pick in the draft in the past, but this year I’m looking to do something a little bit different. I’ll still share my thoughts regarding selections that I feel are particularly strong or weak, but I’m going to focus more on describing prospects rather than assigning a grade. If you miss the grades, let me know — I can always bring them back next year.

This year’s two top-ranked prospects were selected in the 2022 NFL Draft with receiver John Metchie III going to the Houston Texans in the second round and linebacker Jesse Luketa going to the Arizona Cardinals in the seventh round. Given that neither player may ever come to the CFL, both are expected to fall far down the draft board.

3DownNation has already ranked each positional group using insight, analysis and sourcing from JC Abbott, Justin Dunk, and myself.
