Matt Corral Taken Ninth Overall in Latest Sports Illustrated Mock Draft

With exactly one month until the 2022 NFL Draft, it is time to examine another mock draft as trades, free agency, and Pro Days have shaken-up draft predictions in the last week. 

Sports Illustrated’s Zack Patraw released a new first-round mock draft on Monday Morning. In the newest mock former Ole Miss quarterback, Matt Corral was selected with the ninth overall pick by the Seattle Seahawks.

This is what Patraw had to say about Corral going to Seattle in the Top 10:

Matt Corral has improved every year as the Rebels quarterback and should hear his name called early in the 2022 draft. Corral has tremendous feel for maneuvering around in the pocket and while keeping his eyes downfield he gets low to slide up, back, or to the side to evade incoming defenders. He displays smooth and quick footwork to pivot and scan from one side of the field to the other and has a snappy release to get the ball out with pace.
