Picks No. 7 through 10
As it stands, the New York Jets hold two of the first seven picks in the 2022 NFL Draft, and they should look to continue to put talent around Zach Wilson. There is no way that Wilson reaches his potential with the roster they currently have, especially when it comes to the weapons on the outside.
After adding an offensive tackle with pick No. 3, they bring in a wide receiver with pick No. 7, selecting Chris Olave from Ohio State. This is a guy who will be a playmaker at the next level, giving Wilson a legitimate No. 1 option at the position group.
Like the team they share MetLife Stadium with, the New York Giants also hold two picks in the top-10, as they would select at No. 6 and 9 if the season ended tomorrow. After adding a piece to the offensive line early on, they bring in a player for the defensive line at pick No. 9, selecting Aidan Hutchinson from Michigan.
There are some solid weapons on this Giants team, but they are weak upfront, and Hutchinson is a guy who could be a real menace off the edge. New York had their best win of the season the last time out, beating Las Vegas before the bye week, but this pick is from Chicago, a pick that could end up being in the top-5.
The Washington Football Team pulled off one of the bigger upsets of the Week 10 schedule, as they were able to get the job done against defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay. Taylor Heinecke played very well, and while WFT could go quarterback here in the top-10, maybe they decide to add to the offensive line.
If the organization thinks Heinecke is the right choice moving forward, the pick here could be Tyler Linderbaum, a dominating offensive lineman from Iowa. Linderbaum is the kind of talent you can build an offensive line around, as Washington looks to fix one of the bigger issues on their roster.
The Philadelphia Eagles land here at pick No. 10 with their second first-round pick, and with it, they continue to stack talent on the defensive side of the ball. After taking cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. with pick No. 5, they target the defensive line, selecting Purdue edge rusher George Karlaftis, who could be a double-digit sack guy as a rookie.
Bringing in these two guys in the top-10 would go a long way in revamping this defense, and if Hurts is the answer at QB, the Eagles could be contenders in the NFC East sooner than later. Karlaftis is a blur coming off the edge and would be a Day 1 starter at the next level.
