Sam Teets' way-too-early 2022 NFL mock draft: Texans pick first : The 2021 NFL Draft wrapped up less than a week ago, which means it’s already time to look forward. Let’s talk about the 2022 NFL Draft.
The 2021 NFL Draft wrapped up less than a week ago, which means it’s already time to look forward. Forget about the regular season. Let’s talk about the 2022 NFL Draft. Plenty of star prospects could emerge over the next year, but we already know some of the best players in advance. Here’s a way-to-early look at the 2022 NFL Draft. Let’s discuss a few caveats before getting into the article. The draft order for next year won’t materialize until the end of the 2022 regular season. I’m generating the order based on how I think each team will perform. Basically, there are a lot of ways for me to be wrong. Cut me some slack. We’ve already seen quite a few trades that alter next year’s draft order. The Detroit Lions, New York Giants, and New York Jets have two picks each. Miami owns San Francisco’s first-round pick but shipped theirs to the Eagles. Philadelphia could wind up with three first-rounders if Carson Wentz plays at least 75% of Indianapolis’ offensive snaps or only plays 70% and the Colts make the playoffs this year.
