With the 2022 NFL Draft fast approaching, teams across the league are inviting promising prospects to their facilities to get a small taste of the NFL lifestyle.

With that in mind, very few teams are lucky enough to host the most talented players in a given draft class. Of course, that experience is reserved for teams that are picking near the top of the first round.

As it turns out, a lot of those teams in this year’s draft will be hosting University of Oregon product Kayvon Thibodeaux. The 21-year-old is one of the most talented players in the draft this year, and it’s clear that a number of teams have serious interest.

Thibodeaux spent three seasons at Oregon and was a star from the very start. In his freshman year, he played in 13 games, recording 35 total tackles, 14 tackles for loss and nine sacks.

Last season, he finished the year with 49 total tackles, 12 tackles for loss and seven sacks in just 10 games.

His production in college is not the only thing that stands out. At 6-foot-5 and over 250 pounds, Thibodeaux undoubtedly has the physical frame to be a beast in the pros.

Thibodeaux is one of three young defensive ends that could easily be selected in the top 10 of the upcoming draft. The other two talented prospects are University of Michigan product Aidan Hutchinson and University of Georgia standout Travon Walker.

It will be exciting to see how each of these young pass-rushers come along once they begin their NFL journeys.
