NFL 2022 draft order, team needs: Regular season finale to decide No. 1; Jets, Giants with two top 10 picks

Week 17 is in the books and that means only one game stands between eighteen teams knowing their official position within the 2022 NFL Draft. 

Below, we’ll take a look at the entire draft order in Round 1 as it stands with Week 17 complete, in addition to team needs and notable free agents. 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 trade the No. 5 overall selection in exchange for Russell Wilson.
