2022 NFL draft order and team needs: Lions get first win, Jets own back-to-back picks in top 5

The top of the draft order is beginning to stabilize but the rest remains in flux. Nearly half the league has a record between 5-7 and 7-5 so the order could significantly flip week to week. Philadelphia’s first-round picks slid after Sunday’s action and the Lions got their first win of the season. 

But first, each week, Ryan Wilson, Chris Trapasso and I produce mock 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 extensive draft discussion beyond the mock drafts, check out our weekly show every Tuesday on YouTube!
