2022 NFL Mock Draft: Carson Strong first player off the board, four QBs taken in top 11 picks : Carson Strong has been one of the best players in college football through the first two weeks
This is going to be a wild ride, folks. Twelve months ago at this time, Trevor Lawrence was the obvious No. 1 overall pick and that never changed, right up until the moment the Jaguars selected him ... with the No. 1 overall pick. This year will be very, very different. For us, Nevada's Carson Strong has been the best quarterback in college football but a knee injury dating back to high school could ultimately determine his fate. But if he gets the all clear from NFL teams, he's in the running for QB1. There's also Spencer Rattler and Sam Howell, two names we heard often over the summer as two of the best quarterbacks in this class, but neither has played with the consistency of Strong -- or Matt Corral, for that matter -- to start the season. It's early, of course, but this is the NFL; it's always about the quarterbacks.
