The 2022 NFL Draft is just one week away. But what do we know so far?
Red carpets, Oscar-worthy suits, a Fountains of Bellagio backdrop, in-your-face swankiness, Roger Goodell-directed jeers, and picks – lots and lots of picks. Draft paradise, and it’s coming to Nevada’s very own town of Paradise.
The Jacksonville Jaguars’ moves to ‘franchise tag’ offensive tackle Cam Robinson and sign guard Brandon Scherff seemingly paving the way for Michigan pass rusher Aidan Hutchinson to join the Jags as 2022’s No 1 overall pick.
That said, a pads-off Combine exposé of staggering athleticism has helped catapult Georgia’s Travon Walker up draft boards. Walker has the speed, agility, and at-the-snap power that makes him a unique threat as both a pass-rusher and run-stuffer and many anticipate that if Hutchinson is not the pick at No 1, it will be Walker’s name called instead.

Range, suffocating, dogged Cincinnati cornerback Ahmad ‘Sauce’ Gardner appears to have leap-frogged LSU’s Derek Stingley Jr as the ‘shutdown corner’ of the draft, while Notre Dame’s flying and diving safety Kyle Hamilton (watch his interception against Florida State) stakes a strong claim as the most accomplished player in the entire class.
NC State’s Ickey Ekwonu, meanwhile, accompanies Alabama’s Evan Neal as the premier quarterback protectors on offer and a prime attraction for the New York Giants and Seattle Seahawks of the world desperate for offensive line help.
