NFL bounce-back candidates: What went wrong for 32 struggling players, including Alvin Kamara, Baker Mayfield, plus 2022 outlooks

Every NFL player has expectations coming into each season. Some will meet them. Others will exceed them.

And then there are those who will fall short, some woefully. That's where we're putting our attention for the purposes of this exercise.

With our friends at Pro Football Focus, we identified 32 players -- one from each team -- who are looking to bounce back from a season that, for one reason or another, went awry. These are players who have shown in the past that they can play at a high level in the NFL. Our NFL Nation reporters also give their thoughts on how these players can improve in 2022.

Will edge rushers such as Khalil Mack, Bradley Chubb, Chase Young and Bud Dupree regain their edge? Will new surroundings benefit players such as Baker Mayfield, Allen Robinson II and Myles Jack? Can running backs Alvin Kamara, Saquon Barkley and Marlon Mack rekindle the magic of past seasons? These questions and many more are answered below (all grades and stats are from PFF):
