2022 NFL Survivor Squad: Constructing a 32-man juggernaut with one choose from each single group

2022 NFL Survivor Squad: Constructing a 32-man juggernaut with one choose from each single group

In every of the final two offseasons, now we have used this area to unveil our annual NFL Survivor Squad, representing our try to construct the very best roster utilizing one consultant and just one consultant from every of the 32 NFL groups. Effectively, we’re right here to do this once more. 

To make issues more difficult on myself and keep away from reprinting the identical article yr after yr, I’ve as soon as once more unilaterally declared each participant and coach who made both the 2020 or 2021 roster off limits for this yr’s train. 

Which means none of Invoice Belichick, Andy Reid, Greg Roman, Brian Daboll, Robert Saleh, Patrick Graham, Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers, Christian McCaffrey, Dalvin Prepare dinner, DeAndre Hopkins, Mike Evans, DK Metcalf, A.J. Brown, Michael Thomas, CeeDee Lamb, Zach Ertz, Darren Waller, George Kittle, T.J. Hockenson, Kenny Golladay, Ja’Marr Chase, Jake Matthews, Laremy Tunsil, Quenton Nelson, Ali Marpet, Brandon Linder, Corey Linsley, Zack Martin, Brandon Scherff, Jack Conklin, Lane Johnson, Von Miller, Khalil Mack, Brian Burns, Myles Garrett, Aaron Donald, J.J. Watt, DeForest Buckner, Stephon Tuitt, Kenny Clark, Kyle Van Noy, Nicholas Morrow, Bobby Wagner, Eric Kendricks, Roquan Smith, Demario Davis, Tre’Davious White, James Bradberry, Xavien Howard, Kendall Fuller, Chris Harris Jr., Marlon Humphrey, Minkah Fitzpatrick, Jamal Adams, Marcus Maye, Budda Baker, Jalen Ramsey, Tress Approach, Logan Cooke, Randy Bullock, Younghoe Koo, Adoree’ Jackson or Gunner Olszewski have been eligible for this yr’s group. 

In an train like this, it is necessary to know precisely the way you wish to construct your group. To compete within the trendy NFL, it’s a must to acknowledge that the passing recreation is king, and construct the roster accordingly. So, in all toss-up choices, the tiebreaker was whichever participant would assist our offense throw the ball effectivity and explosively or our protection cease the opposing offense from doing the identical. 

As soon as once more, we needed our group to be as versatile as doable — particularly on protection, the place the flexibility to disguise what you are doing and have gamers fill a number of roles relying on the snap is paramount. So, pass-catching working backs, receivers who might play on the perimeter or within the slot, defensive linemen who might flex to the sting or inside, linebackers who excel towards the run and the cross, and safeties who might drop down into the field, play up excessive, or slide to the slot have been all issues that we regarded for in constructing the roster. 

All that mentioned, a couple of fast notes earlier than you get to the reveal of the complete roster: 

  • The gamers (and coaches) chosen at every place aren’t essentially the greatest gamers (and coaches) at that individual place, however those that made essentially the most sense on a roster the place you may solely (and should) take one consultant from every group. 
  • The identical is true of the gamers (and coaches) listed within the “additionally thought-about” part. These gamers are additionally not listed in any specific order.
  • For the primary time, there have been no “must-have” gamers or coaches on this yr’s group. That led to a considerably better variety of folks being thought-about for roster spots, and in addition to my head spinning into the bottom as I constructed numerous iterations of the roster. There might or might not have been a bunch e mail despatched to the CBS employees that contained squads A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H, together with potential modifications I used to be contemplating for every unit. In a very unrelated improvement, I am taking a while off subsequent weekend.

With out additional ado, let’s stroll via our squad.

Head coach: John Harbaugh (Ravens)

  • 2021 (ineligible): Andy Reid (Chiefs)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Invoice Belichick (Patriots)

Harbaugh has had super success in Baltimore, compiling a 137-88 report that’s good for the fifth-best mark within the NFL since he took over in 2008. In 14 seasons, he is taken the Ravens to the playoffs 9 instances, compiling an 11-8 postseason report and profitable a Tremendous Bowl with a quarterback who, to place it kindly, was not elite. Over the previous few seasons, he has proven a willingness to adapt to his personnel that’s probably unmatched by another coach within the league. (The Ravens fully overhauled their offensive philosophy to mesh with Lamar Jackson’s skills within the span of 1 offseason.) He is additionally constantly made aggressive choices in the case of issues like fourth downs and two-point conversions, and as a former particular groups coach, he’d probably make {that a} precedence for our squad as properly. 

Additionally thought-about: Brandon Staley, Sean McVay, Matt LaFleur, Kyle Shanahan, Frank Reich, Mike Vrabel, Mike Tomlin, Dan Campbell

Offensive coordinator: Shane Steichen (Eagles)

  • 2021 (ineligible): Brian Daboll (Payments)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Greg Roman (Ravens)

Steichen has solely been an offensive coordinator for 2 seasons, however the best way these two seasons have performed out spark optimism for his future. He was on the helm in Los Angeles for Justin Herbert’s outstanding rookie season, serving to him to probably the greatest debut years any quarterback has ever had — though Herbert wasn’t supposed to start out earlier than Tyrod Taylor’s unintended collapsed lung compelled him into motion. Steichen was then a part of the Eagles employees that did a tough pivot towards a run-heavy offense when it grew to become clear that their pass-focused assault wasn’t working early on in the course of the 2021 season. Philly emerged as the most effective speeding group within the league behind its highly effective offensive line, and made a run to the playoffs. A willingness to strive new issues when it is clear that Plan A is not going to achieve success is an effective high quality to have, and Steichen’s historical past working with an enormous, cell, do-everything quarterback will serve him properly with the signal-caller on our group.

Additionally thought-about: Byron Leftwich, Kellen Moore, Scott Turner, Pete Carmichael, Brian Callahan, Pep Hamilton, Eric Bieniemy

Defensive coordinator: Don Martindale (Giants)

  • 2021 (ineligible): Patrick Graham (Giants)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Robert Saleh (49ers)

This is perhaps just a little bit awkward, contemplating Harbaugh simply fired Martindale from his Ravens publish this offseason. However he landed in New York beneath new Giants head coach Brian Daboll, and the Giants not having many good candidates for the roster, mixed with us wanting to make use of gamers from different groups who would assist greater than their respective defensive coordinators, led us to reunite Martindale together with his former boss. Earlier than final season, Wink ran probably the greatest defenses within the NFL, and his fashion will mesh will with the personnel we have collected on protection. His expertise utilizing gamers in hybrid roles and using unorthodox personnel groupings ought to be particularly useful. Except all of our defensive backs get injured like Baltimore’s did final yr, Martindale’s aggressive, a number of scheme will work simply advantageous. 

Additionally thought-about: Dan Quinn, Jonathan Gannon, Aaron Glenn, Joe Barry, Phil Snow, Raheem Morris, DeMeco Ryans, Leslie Frazier, Lou Anarumo, Shane Bowen

Quarterback: Josh Allen (Payments)

  • 2021 (ineligible): Aaron Rodgers (Packers)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Patrick Mahomes (Chiefs)

Allen is an outrageously gifted participant who during the last two seasons has blossomed into one of the vital impactful gamers within the league. There’s not a throw on the planet that he can’t make. Outdoors of Lamar Jackson, he’s the most effective and most dynamic speeding menace on the place. He has proven a willingness — eagerness, even — to hunt out massive positive aspects down the sphere, and to increase the play till the final second, making an attempt to see if a possibility for such a shot opens up. There have been variations of this roster the place Justin Herbert was the quarterback, however the remainder of the items did not fairly come collectively the identical manner they do with Allen right here.

Additionally thought-about: Justin Herbert, Lamar Jackson, Dak Prescott, Tom Brady, Matthew Stafford, Joe Burrow

Working again: Jonathan Taylor (Colts)

  • 2021 (ineligible): Dalvin Prepare dinner (Vikings)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Christian McCaffrey (Panthers)

Behind our offensive line, Taylor ought to be capable of discover loads of success on the bottom. He isn’t fairly nearly as good a cross catcher and somebody like Austin Ekeler, Aaron Jones, or D’Andre Swift, however A: Allen would not test all the way down to his working backs that usually due to his capability to make performs together with his legs; and B: Whereas main the NFL in carries, speeding yards, and speeding touchdowns, Taylor additionally noticed 51 targets final yr after getting 39 as a rookie — and he regarded extra comfy working in area. On screens and designed swing passes, he works simply advantageous. Plus, if we actually wish to get the working again concerned within the passing recreation in a giant manner, we have different choices. (Extra on that under.) 

Additionally thought-about: Austin Ekeler, David Montgomery, D’Andre Swift, Aaron Jones, Nick Chubb, Najee Harris, Derrick Henry, Javonte Williams

Perimeter receivers: Davante Adams (Raiders) and Justin Jefferson (Vikings)

Good luck to the cornerbacks who need to cowl this duo. Adams and Jefferson can transfer all around the formation, they usually win at each stage of the route — from the discharge to the stem to the break to the catch level after which by creating yards after the catch. They’re impeccable technicians and terrific athletes, and no person has proven the flexibility to close them down in any significant manner. Adams’ capability to work the sidelines ought to mesh properly with Allen’s rocket arm, and each his expertise with Aaron Rodgers and Jefferson’s with Joe Burrow ought to assistance on scramble-drill-style performs the place Allen makes one thing occur outdoors of construction. 

Additionally thought-about: Terry McLaurin, Allen Robinson, Stefon Diggs, Tee Higgins, Mike Williams, DeVonta Smith, D.J. Moore

Slot receiver: Cooper Kupp (Rams)

  • 2021 (ineligible): CeeDee Lamb (Cowboys)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Michael Thomas (Saints)

Kupp was basically uncoverable final season, as he went from being a close-to-the-line possession receiver to one of the vital dynamic full-field threats within the league. Allen, like Matthew Stafford, can entry nearly any space of the sphere together with his arm energy, so Kupp ought to be capable of do lots of the various things he did for the Rams final season. Allen’s expertise engaged on alternative routes with Cole Beasley ought to serve him properly within the transition to Kupp, who is larger, stronger, quicker, and higher after the catch than the previous Buffalo slot man. We are able to additionally get inventive by transferring him into the backfield to actually stress opponents who should resolve whether or not to cowl him with a linebacker or security or have a nook transfer into an uncomfortable spot on the inside of the protection, because the Rams did now and again final yr. 

Additionally thought-about: Hunter Renfrow, Jerry Jeudy, Amon-Ra St. Brown

Tight ends: Travis Kelce (Chiefs) and Cole Kmet (Bears)

  • 2021 (ineligible): George Kittle (49ers) and T.J. Hockenson (Lions)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Zach Ertz (Eagles) and Darren Waller (Raiders)

Kelce continues to be the league’s greatest pass-catching tight finish. He had a little bit of a midseason dip final yr, however so did all the Chiefs offense, and he then exploded down the stretch and within the playoffs. (He was additionally coping with a stinger across the time of that dip. It most likely wasn’t a coincidence.) Enjoying with Allen additionally should not be an excessive amount of of an adjustment after working with Patrick Mahomes over the previous few years. Kmet is our consultant for the Bears, largely as a result of he match the roster higher than guys like Jaylon Johnson and Eddie Jackson. He flashed some chain-moving capability final yr and he is an enormous goal, so he may also help within the pink zone. 

Additionally thought-about: Kyle Pitts, Mark Andrews, Dalton Schultz, Dallas Goedert, Noah Fant, Albert Okwuegbunam, Dawson Knox, Mike Gesicki

Offensive flex: Deebo Samuel (49ers)

  • 2021 (ineligible): Ja’Marr Chase (Bengals)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Kenny Golladay (Lions)

The NFL’s final flex participant takes up the identical position in our offense. Samuel reportedly would not wish to be used as something remotely resembling a full-time working again, and we do not want him to be. However the specter of him within the backfield is hell for defenses, and he is without doubt one of the greatest within the league at creating yards after the catch on screens and jet sweeps. And that is earlier than you get to all that he can do as a daily ole broad receiver. Taylor-Adams-Jefferson-Kupp-Samuel-Kelce is perhaps the most effective ability place group we have had on this train to this point.

Left deal with: Rashawn Slater (Chargers)

  • 2021 (ineligible): Laremy Tunsil (Texans)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Jake Matthews (Falcons)

Slater earned his manner onto this roster with a terrific rookie marketing campaign. He was the offensive line equal of a Justin Jefferson or Ja’Marr Chase, instantly stepping in as one of many league’s greatest at his place. He was considered one of solely 4 tackles with a Professional Soccer Focus grade of 80 or higher as each a cross blocker and run blocker final season, together with Tyron Smith, Trent Williams, and Jordan Mailata.

Additionally thought-about: Tyron Smith, Andrew Thomas, Jordan Mailata, Trent Williams, Taylor Decker, Terron Armstead, Jedrick Wills Jr., Kolton Miller, Garett Bolles, Taylor Lewan, Charles Leno, Trent Brown

Bitonio acquired off to a robust begin to his NFL profession however has lastly begun getting acknowledged for his contributions over the previous few seasons, making 4 consecutive Professional Bowls and All-Professional groups (three second, one first).

Additionally thought-about: Justin Pugh, Laken Tomlinson, Joe Thuney

Middle: Frank Ragnow (Lions)

  • 2021 (ineligible): Corey Linsley (Chargers)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Brandon Linder (Jaguars)

Ragnow is coming off an injury-ruined 2021 marketing campaign however he was a Second Staff All-Professional in 2020, when he ranked third in PFF’s grading and allowed solely 9 pressures all yr. He is a bit higher within the run recreation than as a cross blocker, however given the make-up of the remainder of our unit up entrance, that is simply advantageous.

Additionally thought-about: Jason Kelce, Ryan Jensen, Rodney Hudson, Mitch Morse, Creed Humphrey, Ben Jones, Bradley Bozeman

Proper guard: Alex Cappa (Bengals)

  • 2021 (ineligible): Brandon Scherff (Commanders)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Zack Martin (Cowboys)

Cappa has become a really strong proper guard over the previous few seasons, and given his age (27) probably nonetheless has room for enchancment. He was one of many key items of Cincinnati’s offensive line overhaul this offseason, and may group with Ted Karras and La’el Collins to dramatically improve the precise facet of the road in entrance of Burrow. 

Additionally thought-about: Shaq Mason, Michael Onwenu, Alijah Vera-Tucker, Kevin Zeitler, James Daniels, Trey Smith, Chris Lindstrom

Proper deal with: Tristan Wirfs (Buccaneers)

  • 2021 (ineligible): Lane Johnson (Eagles)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Jack Conklin (Browns)

Wirfs has been a star from the second he stepped into the NFL. He was a deserving All-Professional a yr in the past, he is heading into his age-23 season, and he is already arguably the NFL’s greatest participant at his place. One key be aware: he was referred to as for simply three penalties all of final season, playoffs included.

  • 2021 (ineligible): Brian Burns (Panthers) and Myles Garrett (Browns)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Von Miller (Broncos) and Khalil Mack (Bears)

Nabbing the reigning Defensive Participant of the Yr is a fairly good approach to begin your protection. Watt is extensively thought-about both the most effective or second-best edge rusher within the NFL, and he is much more than only a sack grasp. He greater than holds his personal setting the sting towards the run. Judon is extra of a pure pass-rush sort, however he is coming off three consecutive Professional Bowl seasons and confirmed extra flexibility in New England final yr. Plus, our defensive coordinator (Martindale) has loads of expertise placing him in place to succeed, since he did simply that in Baltimore for a number of seasons. 

Additionally thought-about: Demarcus Lawrence, Rashan Gary, Kayvon Thibodeaux, Haason Reddick, Robert Quinn, Danielle Hunter, Cameron Jordan, Shaquil Barrett, Nick Bosa, Joey Bosa, Carl Lawson, Odafe Oweh, Harold Landry, Randy Gregory, Chandler Jones, Maxx Crosby, Trey Hendrickson

In response to PFF, he additionally had 32 run stops and a 1.9% missed deal with fee, the latter of which ranked sixth greatest amongst inside defensive linemen. Simmons had a real breakout yr in 2021, and in the event you’re questioning what he can do, go activate the tape of his complete destruction of Cincinnati’s offensive line within the playoffs, which needed to be replaying within the Bengals’ heads as they went on their offensive-line-focused spending spree this offseason. 

Additionally thought-about: Leonard Williams, Fletcher Cox, Javon Hargrave, Grady Jarrett, Vita Vea, Quinnen Williams, Cameron Heyward, Folorunso Fatukasi, Chris Jones, Sebastian Joseph-Day

Defensive entrance flex: Micah Parsons (Cowboys)

  • 2021 (ineligible): Nicholas Morrow (Raiders)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Kenny Clark (Packers)

Parsons might not really be a human man. After not enjoying in any respect in 2020 and never enjoying as an edge rusher since highschool, Parsons was far and away the NFL’s greatest cross rusher final yr — as a rookie. He notched a sack (13), hit (29), or hurry (40) on 22.4% of his pass-rush snaps final season, in keeping with TruMedia. That led the league by such a large margin that the space between him and second-place Trey Hendrickson was equal to the one between Hendrickson and Mario Addison in forty eighth place. Earlier than Parsons, no person who had rushed the passer at the very least 200 instances in a season since 2018 had topped 20%. Oh, and speeding the passer wasn’t even his main job. He made outrageous performs towards the run (credited with 58 stops by PFF, fourth most amongst all linebackers) and flashed high-level protection capability at instances, permitting solely 7.6 yards per reception. He is an absurdly gifted participant who will make life terribly tough for opposing offenses for a very long time.

  • 2021 (ineligible): Roquan Smith (Bears) and Demario Davis (Saints)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Bobby Wagner (Seahawks) and Eric Kendricks (Vikings)

Campbell lastly put all of it collectively final season, harnessing his elite athleticism to turn into a implausible protection participant who additionally roamed sideline to sideline making performs towards the run. That is the participant the Falcons envisioned once they drafted him; it simply took a transfer to Inexperienced Bay to seek out it inside him. Oluokun acquired a pleasant elevate from the Jaguars this offseason after creating right into a high-level starter for the Falcons. Whether or not or not it was sensible to speculate a lot in an off-ball linebacker earlier than utilizing a excessive draft choose on two extra (Devin Lloyd and Chad Muma) would not change the truth that Oluokun is rattling good.  

Additionally thought-about: Blake Martinez, Lavonte David, Devin White, Fred Warner, Dre Greenlaw, Shaquille Leonard

Outdoors corners: A.J. Terrell (Falcons) and Marshon Lattimore (Saints)

  • 2021 (ineligible): Xavien Howard (Dolphins) and Kyle Fuller (Broncos)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Tre’Davious White (Payments) and James Bradberry (Giants)

Talking of the Falcons, how about A.J. Terrell? Arguably the single-best nook within the NFL final season, he was a real shutdown man. He allowed simply 29 completions on 66 targets, an NFL-low (amongst corners who performed 250-plus snaps) 6.9 yards per catch, and a hilarious 47.5 passer ranking. And he would not flip 24 till September. We’ll take that on our group all day. Lattimore has his ups and downs however has as excessive a ceiling as any nook within the league, and he all the time brings it when he is up towards high-level receivers. With our defensive coordinator eager to convey plenty of stress, we’d like physicality on the nook spot, and a willingness to play man on the skin. 

Additionally thought-about: Trevon Diggs, Darius Slay, Jaylon Johnson, Jaire Alexander, Jaycee Horn, Xavien Howard, Byron Jones, Denzel Ward, Patrick Surtain II, J.C. Jackson, Derek Stingley Jr.

Slot nook: Byron Murphy Jr. (Cardinals)

  • 2021 (ineligible): Marlon Humphrey (Ravens)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Chris Harris Jr. (Chargers)

Murphy would not have elite measurement, however he is feisty and prepared to stay his nostril in to make performs. He light a bit down the stretch of final season, similar to the remainder of the Arizona protection (and offense, and training employees), however in the event you can unlock what he had going early within the season, there is a very nice participant there. 

Additionally thought-about: Rasul Douglas, Kenny Moore II, Elijah Molden

Deep security: Justin Simmons (Broncos)

  • 2021 (ineligible): Marcus Maye (Jets)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Minkah Fitzpatrick (Steelers)

Simmons is a high-level protection participant on the again finish, and he has no drawback coming down into the field to make some hits. He is made two All-Professional groups during the last three seasons, mixing in 14 picks and 35 cross deflections throughout that point. He is even proven some capability as a blitzer on the uncommon events he is been requested to go after the quarterback, producing eight pressures on simply 18 pass-rush snaps over that three-year span. Plus, you may line him up within the field or over the slot and he can maintain up simply advantageous.

Additionally thought-about: Xavier McKinney, Eddie Jackson, Micah Hyde, John Johnson III, Julian Blackmon, Darnell Savage, Jessie Bates III, Marcus Williams, Antoine Winfield Jr.

Field security: Jeremy Chinn (Panthers)

  • 2021 (ineligible): Budda Baker (Cardinals)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Jamal Adams (Jets)

Chinn’s off to a terrific begin via his first two NFL seasons, and he made enhancements in nearly each space from Yr 1 to Yr 2. He is a giant (6-3, 220 kilos), bodily presence who can ship massive hits and make performs towards the run whereas utilizing his physique to have an effect on the quick passing recreation. Given his athleticism, there are few tight ends he cannot run with, and that ought to help him as he develops as a protection participant. 

Additionally thought-about: Adrian Amos, Harrison Smith, Jordan Fuller, Jordan Poyer, Chuck Clark

Again seven flex: Jevon Holland (Dolphins)

  • 2021 (ineligible): Jalen Ramsey (Rams)
  • 2020 (ineligible): Kyle Van Noy (Dolphins)

If Parsons did not exist, Holland would have been simply my favourite defensive rookie to look at final season. Miami moved him all around the formation, from free security to the field to the slot and even weaponized him as a heavy blitzer. He completed with PFF’s third-best protection grade amongst safeties, in addition to prime 20 grades towards the run and as a tackler. His 16 pressures have been second amongst safeties solely to teammate Brandon Jones, and 5 greater than any participant not on the Dolphins. Having a chess piece like Holland to maneuver round on the again finish is simply enjoyable, greater than anything.

Berrios was the All-Professional return man final season, averaging 30.4 yards per kick return and 13.4 yards per punt return. Whereas the Jets have a bunch of intriguing younger gamers whose futures may very well be brilliant, none of them made for superb matches for any such group as they’ve but to turn into star-level contributors.
