NFL 2022 draft order, team needs: Giants, Jets combine for 4 straight picks in top 7, Raiders continue slide

The tight AFC playoff race leads to some big changes in the 2022 NFL Draft order each week. The Raiders and Bengals have dipped significantly over the last few weeks, but the topsy-turvy conference could flip again in Week 15. 

Below, we’ll take a look at the entire draft order in Round 1 as it stands through Week 14. For a look at which players are likely to go where, Ryan Wilson, Chris Trapasso and I produce mock drafts for CBSSports.com. In the latest from Wilson and Trapasso, they have Michigan edge rusher Aidan Hutchinson going No. 1 overall.
