With the NFL draft just under three weeks away, we’re starting to get a better idea of what will happen on draft night in this 2022 NFL Mock Draft.

The 2022 NFL Draft is quickly approaching and while the draft is almost always impossible to predict, this draft seems especially hard to predict. There’s so storylines and questions to be answered on draft night, such as:

Who do the Jaguars go with at number one overall? This is a rare draft class in which the top selection isn’t obvious and while Aidan Hutchinson is emerging as a favorite, it’s still up in the air.

Do highly regarded prospects like Kayvon Thibodeaux, Kyle Hamilton, and Derek Stingley Jr. fall on draft night? Three of the biggest names in this draft class all look like they could be waiting longer than originally thought to hear their name called.

Where do the offensive tackles come off the board? This is a very strong offensive tackle class with Ickey Ekwonu, Evan Neal, and Charles Cross headlining the class and it’s very much possible they all go in the top ten.

Where do the quarterbacks come off the board?  This is regarded as a weak quarterback class but there’s still potential franchise quarterbacks in this group and there’s always teams who need a quarterback, so when do they get picked? These are just a few of the draft’s biggest questions and I will be giving it my best shot at answering those questions and more in this 2022 NFL Mock Draft.

2022 NFL Mock Draft:

Now, keep in my mind this mock draft is attempting to predict what teams will do, not necessarily what I would do if I was in charge of making the pick. Although, I do sprinkle in my own personal opinions on prospects.

So, without further ado let’s hop into this 2022 NFL mock draft with Jacksonville at number one.
