2022 NFL Mock Draft: Steelers draft a dynamic quarterback with top pick : It’s never too early to look ahead, and so here is a way-too-early mock draft after the 2021 season.
After getting more picks correct than both Mel Kiper and Daniel Jeremiah in the final 2021 mock, I am back with my first mock for the 2022 cycle. Many of you are probably getting sick of anything with the word “mock” in it, while others cannot get enough of it. If you fall into the second category, you have come to the right place. We are still a long way from the 2022 NFL Draft, and many things will change between now and next April, but there are several things that stand out about the class already. The most notable thing is that next year’s quarterback class is going to be very, VERY deep. The names mentioned most often at the top are USC’s Kedon Slovis and North Carolina’s Sam Howell, but there are many other prospects who currently sit in the mid to late first round range and will have a chance to leap into the top ten with a solid season. Be sure to take a look at each quarterback in the mock draft, not just the one mocked to the Steelers. There is no consensus number one quarterback as of now, which means that no quarterback is off the table for a Steelers team that will hopefully be picking in the back half of the first round.
