At this level everyone knows the highest prospects within the 2022 NFL Draft. The long run All-Professionals we are able to think about main our group to victory. For these of us with extra unconventional wishes it’s excessive time we turned our consideration to the most effective names of the category.
Let me be clear: I unironically love these names. As somebody with a reasonably boring identify that was butchered at Ellis Island when by great-grandfather emigrated, I may solely want to be known as “Ty Fryfogle” or “Raleigh Texada.” These are the names of heroes in ‘80s actions motion pictures, and that’s earlier than we get to Charleston Rambo, who was narrowly edged out at WR this 12 months.
Right here is my listing for the all-name group of 2022, and after that we have to focus on the NROY (Identify Rookie of the 12 months).

Presenting the 2022 NFL Identify Rookie of the 12 months:
This isn’t simply the most effective identify of the 2022 NFL Draft class, it’s top-of-the-line soccer names of all time. There are such a lot of nice methods you need to use Smoke Monday in a sentence that it actually makes it sing. Hell, I can think about Kendall Roy from Succession shadow boxing in his Manhattan penthouse whereas telling himself to “Smoke Monday” earlier than an enormous board assembly.
I can envision it being a name to calm down as effectively: “Put within the work Sunday, smoke Monday.”
Even should you use the primary identify and inform opponents “you don’t need the smoke” all of it nonetheless works. This identify it utter perfection and I hope whoever drafts Smoke Monday will embrace his identify brilliance and cherish it for the enjoyment that it’s.
