The 2022 NFL Draft is officially open, with Thursday night’s opening round now in the rearview mirror. Ahead of the start of Round 2, ESPN provided a glimpse into Day 2 of the draft with a second-round mock draft on Friday.

In the first round, the draft order was significantly altered through a plethora of trades throughout the night. Those moves are apparent when looking at the draft order to open Round 2, with a lot of new teams set to come on the clock.

With just one quarterback taken in the opening round, this draft looks different than those of recent years. There are still a lot of talented players available, and ESPN’s Round 2 mock draft has a couple of quarterbacks going off the board rather quickly on Friday night. If Thursday night was any indication, though, this draft order is incredibly unlikely to remain in tact.
