NFL Draft 2022 order, tracker, start time, how to watch, live stream, news, mock draft central
The 2022 NFL Draft is finally here, and it is set to be one of the most unpredictable drafts in decades. With no quarterback as a consensus No. 1 pick, the draft will keep fans on their toes throughout the evening, which teams playing chess as to which player will be taken at certain spots. Eight teams have multiple first-round picks, which will make the draft even more intriguing as teams look to trade up (or back) in the opening round.
The 2022 NFL Draft will begin on April 28 in Las Vegas, with the first round scheduled to start at 8 p.m. ET. ESPN, ABC, and the NFL Network will broadcast the 2022 NFL Draft over three days, with coverage concluding on April 30.
While the 2022 NFL Draft doesn't have as many high profile quarterbacks as last year, teams with multiple first-round picks, like the New York Jets and Giants, will look to rebuild with their selections. Several excellent pass rushers lead this year's draft class, including Aidan Hutchinson of Michigan, Kayvon Thibodeaux of Oregon, and Travon Walker of Georgia.
ABC, ESPN, and the NFL Network have committed to airing all three days of the draft from start to finish; you can also follow the draft results at NFL.com or via the NFL app.
The most teams to make multiple first-round selections in a single draft since 1967 is six. Eight teams currently do not have a first-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, which would be a common-draft era record.
This draft could also see seven wide receivers taken in the first round, which would match the record set in 2004. Aidan Hutchinson, Trayvon Walker, and Kayvon Thibodeaux are contenders to be selected No. 1 overall and all of them could go in the top three -- which would mark the first time in the common-draft era that three defensive linemen were the top-three selections.
