Bowl season is gearing up, and Alabama, Michigan, Georgia and Cincinnati are getting ready to compete in the College Football Playoff. But for NFL fans, that means something else: NFL draft season is here.
The 2022 draft in Las Vegas is less than five months away (April 28), and top prospects have already started to declare for it. We have a heated race for the No. 1 pick between a handful of teams, though it's still up in the air what the eventual winner will do with the selection. This isn't last year's quarterback class, which makes for a complicated draft picture at the moment. To help bring clarity, ESPN NFL draft experts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay are here with answers to 30 big questions at this point in the process.
Who will go No. 1 overall, and could a quarterback merit consideration? What will the Lions, Giants, Jets and Eagles do with multiple first-rounders? How does this wide receiver class compare with those of past years, and what is the deepest position right now? Mel and Todd dig in on all of it and close with a pair of bold predictions for how things will play out in April. Let's start to prep for the draft, starting with a look at the quarterback class.
