In his first 2022 NFL Mock Draft, NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah has Penn State wide receiver Jahan Dotson going to the defending–and, possibly, 2x defending Super Bowl champions–in the first round

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had success with Penn State wide receivers in the past, most recently with Chris Godwin, an all-pro who helped Tampa to its Super Bowl win last year.

The Bucs may be losing Godwin to free agency this year, and Dotson could help fill that void should be fall to Tampa Bay

Jeremiah wrote that Dotson— who finished his Penn State’s career fourth on the school’s all-time receiving yards list— has “outstanding hands and route running skills.”

”He doesn’t have the same size/strength as Godwin,” Jeremiah wrote. “But offers more over-the-top speed.”

Along with free agency, Godwin’s future is also uncertain because he’s healing from a torn ACL that ended his season in mid-December.

Jeremiah has Dotson as the sixth and final receiver taken in the first round.

Dotson is set to play on the National team in the Reese’s senior bowl, scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 5. The NFL Draft will begin Thursday, April 28 and run through Saturday, April 30.
