The 2022 NFL Draft is a little under two months away, and with the NFL Scouting Combine taking place this week, we dive into our latest 2022 NFL Mock Draft.
The 2022 NFL Draft will be here before you know it, and if you need a reason to believe that, look no further than Indianapolis. The 2022 NFL Scouting Combine is underway, and this week, we should see the draft stock of plenty of prospects rise and fall.
Here, we take a look at our latest 2022 NFL Mock Draft.
The Jacksonville Jaguars once again hold the No. 1 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, and it will be interesting to see which route they go. Some mock drafts have them going defense here, adding one of the elite edge rushers in this draft class, while others feel they should fix their issues along the offensive line.
In the 2021 NFL Draft, the Jaguars invested the No. 1 overall pick on quarterback Trevor Lawrence, and he struggled as a rookie. To help him, they should use the No. 1 overall pick here on the offensive line, adding an absolute mauler in Alabama star left tackle, Evan Neal.
Thanks to their trade of Matthew Stafford this offseason, the Detroit Lions hold two first-round selections, one at the top of the first round, and one at the bottom. They have plenty of issues on both sides of the ball, and still, have to figure out whether Jared Goff is the long-term answer at the position, but here, they go best player available.
That player is Aidan Hutchinson, a talented edge rusher from Michigan who would be a fan favorite under head coach Dan Campbell. Hutchinson has an incredible motor, and for a team that struggled to get after the quarterback all last season, he improves that issue in a big way.
The Houston Texans have a lot of decisions to make this offseason, and that includes what to do with quarterback Deshaun Watson. While Watson is done in Houston, trading him away could bring them a few elite assets in return, including some draft capital, so keep an eye on that moving forward.
Here at pick No. 3 overall, Houston cannot afford to pass on Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton, widely regarded as the best overall player in this draft class. Hamilton would be a perfect first selection for new head coach Lovie Smith and has the skill set to be an All-Pro early in his career.
