Two Nittany Lions Go In First Round of PFF’s Latest Mock Draft

With Jaquan Brisker and Jahan Dotson opting out of the Outback Bowl, the NFL is the next step.

The thought of them being selected in the first round of 2022’s draft has been floating in the minds of Nittany Lions fans all season, and according to one outlet, that thought might be a wise one.

Pro Football Focus’s Mock Draft has Brisker going 21st overall to the Miami Dolphins and Dotson going 31st to the Kansas City Chiefs.


After using his last year of eligibility, Brisker developed into one of college football’s best safeties for the Nittany Lions and was named to multiple All-America teams.

Dotson, who broke out in 2021 decided to come back to State College for an extra year, and as expected, played at a high level. He caught 91 balls for 1,182 yards and 12 touchdowns. Although 31st is lower than some see him going, playing in Kansas City would mean Dotson could catch passes from Patrick Mahomes and play for one of the NFL’s elite.
