The 2022 NFL season has reached the halfway point. Although half the league has designs on playing into playoffs, another half should start thinking more about how to improve their teams in 2023. Coupled with the college football season turning the corner into its final month, that makes it an ideal time for a new Sporting News' first-round mock draft. The order continues to be reshuffled with teams changing positions. The trade deadline also brought the Broncos back into the top 31 picks, while the Dolphins — who forfeited their original selection — are now off the clock.
