The NFL regular season comes to an end Sunday and the 2022 NFL Draft order will be finalized for the majority of teams.

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 Trapasso, the Giants use the No. 5 overall selection on a quarterback.
