2022 NFL Mock Draft: One quarterback selected as defense dominates on Day 1 : Just one quarterback gets selected in the first round and defense dominates Day 1 in this 2022 NFL Mock Draft with a twist.

Although it’s just the first week of October, you’ve probably lost count of how many times you’ve read a 2022 NFL Mock Draft. Although there may be subtle differences in draft order and players selected, they all follow a similar theme. Like the NFL Draft itself, these 2022 mocks are trying to either meet a team need or assign the best player available. Not today — not this 2022 NFL Mock Draft. Free agency plays a part in defining how each and every draft plays out. As NFL teams balance the books, they have to decide who to pay and who to slay from their roster. What if they couldn’t afford the most expensive free agent on their roster? What if they had to draft to replace their most valuable departure?
