2022 NFL Free Agency Rankings

Updated: March 2nd

We are less than two weeks away from the start of NFL free agency. Teams can officially sign free agents starting on Wednesday, March 16th at 4 PM ET, when the next league year begins, but they negotiate with agents during the legal tampering window that begins on Monday, March 14th.

Using free-agent rankings from a variety of sources, we have ranked the available free-agent pool using their consensus ranking score.

Here are some notes on how to interpret the table below:

Players designed with the franchise tag and restricted free agents (RFAs) will be excluded from these consensus rankings.

Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft Roundup 4.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft, we will update our Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Dallas Cowboys from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Cowboys:

SI - Kevin Hanson (2/17)

24. Kenyon Green, IOL, Texas A&M

The highly-penalized Connor Williams will become a free agent, so the Cowboys need an upgrade/replacement at left guard. A three-year starter, Green started at RG in 2019 and LG in '20, and showed off his versatility in '21 by making starts at four different positions--all but center--along the offensive line.

Yahoo! Sports - Eric Edholm (2/17)

24. Bernhard Raimann, OT, Central Michigan

The Austrian-born Raimann, whose love for the game came from watching "Friday Night Lights" as a kid, lands with America's Team. Perfect. The Cowboys have not used a top-50 pick on an offensive lineman since Connor Williams in 2018, and the time might be nigh for one with Tyron Smith's and La'el Collins' declines. Raimann is new to playing tackle but possesses the kind of rare traits to be a star in time.

Draft Wire - Luke Easterling (2/17)

24. Roger McCreary, CB, Auburn

Trevon Diggs has obviously emerged as one of the NFL's best playmakers at corner, but the rest of the group in Dallas needs work. McCreary was a shutdown artist every week, dominating some of the SEC's best pass-catchers with regularity, which should make him as pro-ready as any corner in this year's deep class.
