Mel Kiper Jr. ranks “Baby Hulk” #1 on his 2022 Mock Draft


(BRISTOL, CONN) — Famed ESPN draft guru/condor, Mel Kiper Jr, released his 2022 mock draft today (somewhat ahead of schedule), revealing the obvious:  that man-child, Liam "Baby Hulk" Hoekstra, was the #1 prospect.

A look at Kiper’s analysis:

Tremendous burst out of crawl stance.  Extraordinary lateral quickness displayed in sandbox. Viscous head-slap move has already knocked several high-school babysitters unconscious.  Ability to pile-drive father at such a young age is impressive.  Possesses more than adequate bulk.  Still growing, projects to be 7’5, 500 pounds when fully mature.

Plays with a high motor, but will need to eat a full turkey between plays, so there are concerns about staying on the field.  Limited experience; has only played 1 full season in high school on junior varsity team thus far.  Tremendously raw athlete, only scoring a 2 on the Wunderlic test.   Ability to read offenses may be a concern but will likely be offset by sheer carnage he inflicts.

Bit of a tweener, but coaches will devise a system to get him on the field.  Superior athlete; displaying a rare combination of size, speed, straight-line burst, agility, and decapitation prowess.
