There's no shortage of defensive back prospects in the 2022 NFL Draft class, including Maryland safety Nick Cross. Cross was firing on all cylinders during a solid junior season and has started creeping up draft boards as a result.

Here's everything you need to know about Cross ahead of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Round 3

- Buffalo Bills (No. 89) - 1

Cross is a player that lines up to be taken in the middle of the third round. Seeing a team in need of help in the secondary reach for him wouldn't be surprising, though, given ESPN's draft projection. Either way, expect him to be a Day 2 pick in the draft.
