Buffalo Bills class of 2022

By the time all may be said and done, Brandon Beane's 2022 draft could be the best of these five, and maybe even one of the best. For now, we're putting it at number two, mainly because we need to see a little more. This class includes Kaiir Elam, who many are calling a bust. I'm willing to see how this coming season pans out for him though before making that claim. The three picks that followed Elam were James Cook, Terrel Bernard, and Khalil Shakir, in the second, third, and fifth rounds respectively.

Others in this draft were Matt Araiza, who we are waiting to see how his career pans out, unfortunately, it'll be with the Chiefs. Another big find in the 2022 class was sixth-rounder Christian Benford, who is becoming an excellent starting corner for Buffalo. The rest of the class is rounded out with offensive lineman Luke Tenuta and linebacker Baylon Spector. Spector has shown flashes here and there but can't stay healthy and this could be his last season to try to stick with the team beyond next season.
