Behind The Steel Curtain

● By Andrew Wilbar
The beginning of the 2022 NFL Draft cycle is here, which means that it is time for the first edition of my 2022 NFL Draft Big Board! Today, I will give you my current top 25 player rankings for the upcoming draft and give an early synopsis on each player. Keep in mind that things will change between now and April, but this early board will hopefully wet your appetite for what is to come and get you more familiarized with some of the top prospects. Coming this January, the BTSC Big Board will return for a second consecutive year. Last year’s crew will be back along with three new analysts: faithful BTSC member skyfire322, BTSC podcast personality and fantasy expert Jeremy Betz, BTSC film expert and resident coach K.T. Smith (CHISAP), and Team Speed Kills writer Matt Seese. I will also provide weekly draft content, which will include five mock drafts, with the final mock being a full seven-round projection. While some years are easier to project than others, this year is incredibly difficult to determine which direction the Steelers will go with their first-round pick. There are multiple positions of need on both sides of the football, and until free agency plays out, just about any position not named running back or tight end could make sense. Thus, getting acquainted with the top prospects at all positions combined is what Steelers fans will want to begin with when it comes to draft preparation.
