Todd McShay appoints his No. 1 faculty soccer quarterback
It’s never too early to check out the 2022 NFL draft. In fact, ESPN’s Todd McShay just released a new draft sample.
The 2022 draft class at quarterback may not be as busy as this year’s class, but some talented gunslingers should still be available in the first round.
North Carolina’s Sam Howell and Oklahoma’s Spencer Rattler are two of the best quarterbacks for the 2021 college football season, but neither was the first quarterback to be off the board in McShay’s latest draft.
Instead, McShay lets the Detroit Lions select USC quarterback Kedon Slovis with the second overall win.
Slovis had a strong freshman season with the Trojans in 2019, completing 71.9 percent of his passes for 3,502 yards, 30 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Although the 2020 season was canceled due to COVID-19, he still had 1,921 passes and 17 touchdown passes.

Detroit’s plan for the 2022 draft depends on Jared Goff’s fall production. If he proves he can be Dan Campbell’s starting quarterback for the years to come, the franchise won’t have to worry about choosing a signaler this coming April.
In the event that Goff is struggling this year, Lions should consider taking Howell, Rattle, or Slovis if any of them are available when they are on the clock.
Lions fans, would you love Slovis to be on the roster in 2022?
