2022 NFL Draft Order, Team Needs: Washington, Minnesota Swap Spots After MNF, Saints Gain Six Spots

Another week is on the books for the 2021-2022 regular season and that brings us closer to the 2022 NFL Draft. It’s been another crazy week in the NFL, resulting in some big changes in the draft order.

But first, every week Ryan Wilson, Chris Trapasso, and I produce fictitious drafts for CBSSports.com. In Wilson’s latest, he has the Texans, Falcons and Saints taking the quarters in the first round. Trapasso has soaring Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett. It was almost a consensus that Oregon rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux would be taken No. 1 overall by the Lions. For a more in-depth draft discussion beyond the simulated drafts, check out our weekly show every Tuesday on YouTube!
