2022 NFL Draft first round order post Tyreek Hill trade

We take a look at how the first round of the NFL Draft has been shaken up this off-season.

This has been an offseason unlike any other, as the NFL has gone trade happy. One big trade a season was enough for me back in my day! I blame Rams GM Les Snead, who embraced the “f*ck them picks” mantra all the way to a Super Bowl win. Add in the fact that there aren’t any highly touted quarterback prospects coming out in the draft, and teams that needed a quarterback went scorched earth policy in attaining them.

The latest blockbuster trade saw Tyreek Hill go to the Miami Dolphins for a first and second rounder and three later picks. Before that, Green Bay traded away star receiver Davante Adams for first- and second-round picks. Deshaun Watson cost the most, as the Browns traded away three first-round picks (2022, 2023, 2024) and three later selections for the QB. And before that, the Seahawks traded away their franchise QB, Russell Wilson, to the Broncos in exchange for two first-round picks, 2022 second-round pick, 2023 second-round pick, fifth-round pick, QB Drew Lock, defensive lineman Shelby Harris, and tight end Noah Fant.

Now we have a new NFL Draft landscape, as a quarter of the teams no longer own a first round pick. Those teams include the Rams, Browns, Broncos, Colts, Bears, Raiders, while there are six teams with more than one first rounder for the Chiefs (2), Packers (2), Eagles (3), Texans (2), Lions (2), Jets (2).
