There’s no time like the present for a 2022 NFL Mock Draft. It allows us to get our eyes or ears onto college football players and 2022 NFL Draft prospects many have never even heard of. Mock drafts help us circle names at positions that we can watch for on Saturdays in the fall. It is not, however, a test of accuracy. No, right now, it’s about getting a feel for what teams may be looking for come next April. It’s about getting a quick preview of what a player might bring. But most importantly, it’s about letting the imagination of “upside” take us away on a magical journey toward franchise prosperity. Today, you will see names in Round 1 that are ultimately selected on Day 3, return to school, or even go undrafted. The inverse of that also applies.
