NFL fans across the world can’t wait for the first round of the 2022 draft to arrive on Thursday night.
The first round of the NFL Draft feels like Christmas for so many people out there. Luckily, the big moment is about to arrive, with the Jacksonville Jaguars almost on the board with the No. 1 overall pick.
On Thursday night, things will get started at 8 p.m. ET, with countless fans ready to tune in from all over the globe. Las Vegas will be rocking for this from start to finish. With that said, what time will the first round come to a close?
Will Aidan Hutchinson or Travon Walker be taken No. 1 overall?
As mentioned above, the first round will begin at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday, and things are expected to get done and approximately 11:30 p.m. ET. After that, people will then have to wait until Friday night for the second and third rounds to arrive.
Leading up to the first round, people are waiting to see who the Jags will end up using their top pick on. For a while, the expectation was that Michigan’s Aidan Hutchinson would hear his name called first, but Georgia’s Travon Walker is now the favorite to be the top selection.
After those two guys get drafted, it really feels wide open on who could be next. There’s of course going to be plenty of eyes on both Kenny Pickett and Malik Willis, as the two quarterbacks shouldn’t have to wait too long to get picked up either.
Both Willis and Pickett will gain millions of fans on Thursday night. The same can be said for the rest of the guys who get taken as a first-rounder, as fanbases will be ready to welcome them with open arms.
