2022 NFL Draft Order, Team Needs: Lions Remain No.1 Despite Win; Raiders enter first half of first round

By on December 11, 2021 0


Much of the 2022 NFL draft order is moving, but the top of the draft order is starting to level off a bit. Almost half of the league has a record between 5-7 and 7-5, so the order could change dramatically from week to week. Philadelphia’s first-round picks slipped after Sunday’s action and the Lions claimed their first victory of the season.

But first, every week Ryan Wilson, Chris Trapasso, and I produce fictitious drafts for CBSSports.com. In Wilson’s latest, he has the Texans taking a quarterback at No. 3 overall. Trapasso has Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett climbing into the top 10. For a more in-depth discussion beyond the simulated drafts, check out our weekly show every Tuesday on YouTube!
