The 2022 NFL Draft is here! Follow along with this article for all the LIVE updates as each pick is made throughout the first round! NFL Draft dates: Today (April 28) through Saturday (April 30), NFL Draft times: 8 p.m. ET on Thursday. 7 p.m. ET on Friday. 12 p.m. ET on Saturday. Channels: ESPN, ABC and the NFL Network.
Draft Pick #1: Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jaguars select DE Travon Walker, Georgia, with the first overall pick of the NFL Draft! GM Trent Baalke gets the player he coveted.
Draft Pick #2: Detroit Lions
The Lions select Michigan DE Aidan Hutchinson with the second pick of the NFL draft! Dream come true for the Lions and Aidan as he gets to stay close to home.
Draft Pick #3: Houston Texans
With the third overall pick the Houston Texans take CB Derek Stingley Jr., LSU. GM Nick Caserio did extensive work on Stingley and the 2019 tape is ridiculous. Top corner is off the board.
Draft Pick #4: New York Jets
With the fourth overall pick the New York Jets take Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner, CB, Cincinnati. Gardner played over 1,100 coverage snaps in his college career and did not allow a single touchdown.
Draft Pick #5: New York Giants
With the fifth pick in the 2022 NFL Draft the New York Giants select Kayvon Thibodeaux, DE, Oregon. Surprising they didn’t take an offensive lineman, but they bolster their defense with this pick.
Draft Pick #6: Carolina Panthers
With the sixth overall pick the Panthers select OT Ickey Ekwonu, NC State. Ickey is widely regarded as the safest pick in the draft. A likely immediate starter at OT.
Draft Pick #7: New York Giants
With the seventh overall pick the New York Giants pick OL Evan Neal, Alabama. Neal has recorded doubled digit starts at LT, RT, and LG. One of the most versatile players in the draft.
Draft Pick #8: Atlanta Falcons
With the eighth pick in the 2022 NFL draft the Falcons pick WR Drake London, USC. The first wide receiver goes off the board eight picks in. The 6’4″ WR should pair nicely with TE Kyle Pitts.
Draft Pick #9: Seattle Seahawks
With the ninth overall pick the Seahawks select OL Charles Cross, Mississippi State. Protection for their QB of the future, whoever that may be.
Draft Pick #10: New York Jets
With the tenth pick in the 2022 NFL draft the New York Jets take WR Garrett Wilson, Ohio State. The second wide receiver goes off the board. A huge playmaker for Zach Wilson.
Draft Pick #11: TRADE: The Washington Commanders Traded #11 to the New Orleans Saints
With the 11th pick the New Orleans Saints traded up to take WR Chris Olave, Ohio State. One of the best route runners in the draft, and Packers fan favorite is headed to Louisiana.
Draft Pick #12: TRADE: The Minnesota Vikings traded #12 to the Detroit Lions
With the 12th pick the Lions traded up to select WR Jameson Williams, Alabama. The WR frenzy continues as the top four are off the board. That has to hurt for the Green Bay Packers.
Draft Pick #13: TRADE: The Houston Texans have traded #13 to the Philadelphia Eagles
With the 13th overall pick the Philadelphia Eagles traded up to take DT Jordan Davis, Georgia. Davis went viral after his freakish athleticism and he’s the best run stopper in the draft.
Draft Pick #14: Baltimore Ravens
With the 14th pick the Ravens take S Kyle Hamilton, Notre Dame. Someone who should be an instant playmaker in the secondary for Baltimore.
Draft Pick #15: Houston Texans
With the 15th pick the Texans take OL Kenyon Green, Texas A&M. Green started at four different positions on the offensive line last year.
Draft Pick #16: Washington Commanders
With the 16th overall pick the Commanders take Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State. He is the fifth WR taken in first round.
Draft Pick #17: Los Angeles Chargers
The 17th pick belongs to the Chargers and they take G Zion Johnson, Boston College. An immediate starter on the interior offensive line.
Draft Pick #18: TRADE: The Philadelphia Eagles have traded pick #18 to the Tennessee Titans
In a block buster trade the Titans trade WR AJ Brown to the Eagles for pick #18 and the Titans immediately take his replacement, WR Treylon Burks, Arkansas.
Draft Pick #19: New Orleans Saints
With the 19th pick the Saints take OT Trevor Penning, Northern Iowa. A possible Terron Armstead replacement.
Draft Pick #20: Pittsburgh Steelers
With the 20th pick the Steelers take their potential QB of the future. Kenny Pickett, QB, Pitt.
Draft Pick #21: TRADE: The New England Patriots traded #21 to Kansas City
The Chiefs take CB Trent McDuffie with the No. 21 overall pick. The knock on McDuffie is his size and length, but he has the kind of production that warrants overlooking those concerns.
Draft Pick #22: Green Bay Packers
Draft Pick #23: TRADE: The Baltimore Ravens Traded pick #23 to the Buffalo Bills
Draft Pick #24: Dallas Cowboys
Draft Pick #25: Baltimore Ravens
Draft Pick #27: TRADE: The Buccaneers have traded with the Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jaguars will select Utah LB Devin Lloyd after trading back into the first-round. An every-down impact player to go along Travon Walker in this draft. Meanwhile, Tampa now has the first pick tomorrow night + 106 and 180.
