Mel Kiper's 2022 NFL draft mailbag: What's wrong with Spencer Rattler? How good is Matt Corral?

We're through four weeks of the college football season, which means it's time to reset what we know and don't know about the 2022 NFL draft. When I did my preseason rankings earlier this month, I noted all of the changes that were likely to come this fall. That's because this is such a crucial evaluation period for underclassmen and seniors; games matter, and what happens in them far exceeds the importance of the hype off the field. So far, we've seen a few risers, fallers and surprises from the top of my Big Board, along with a couple of notable injuries.

I'll have my updated Big Board and position rankings on ESPN.com later this week, but I wanted to take a few questions from readers about what I've seen so far. I'll start with a question about my top-ranked quarterback before the season, Oklahoma's Spencer Rattler, who was booed by his own fans on Saturday. A few more names I'll hit: Matt Corral, Derek Stingley Jr., Evan Neal and Kayvon Thibodeaux. (Questions have been edited for clarity.)

I also picked a prospect who is rising after Saturday's games, plus an under-the-radar prospect to keep an eye on throughout the rest of the season:

Has Spencer Rattler's play this year changed your opinion on him? (via @KevinEidt)
