We have just over two weeks left until the start of the 2022 NFL Draft on Thursday, April 28. Here’s our latest mock draft.

We’re just a little over two weeks out from the 2022 NFL Draft and we’re back with another mock draft of the first round.

With a crazy period of free agent signings and trade activity starting to die down, franchises are starting turn their attention towards the draft to fill major needs. The teams are starting to finalize their respective big boards and in the last few weeks, each one of them have invited various prospects to their facilities for interviews and physicals.

As far as the draft order itself, there has been some fluctuations among draft experts in regards to who goes where, but nothing too dramatic Michigan edge rusher Aidan Hutchinson is still projected to go No. 1 overall to the Jacksonville Jaguars while Oregon edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux can go anywhere from No. 2 to No. 8 depending on who you ask. The biggest risers over the last few weeks have been Georgia edge rusher Travon Walker and Cincinnati cornerback Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner, both of whom could very well have their name called in the Top 10.

Here’s out latest first-round mock of the 2022 NFL Draft. Note, we’re not factoring in any potential draft day trades and instead running through the first round as it is at the moment. This comes following the Eagles-Saints trade that saw some shuffling in the first round.
