The 2022 NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday night with the first round, with the remaining six rounds taking place over Friday and Saturday. With draft week finally upon is, speculation is running as high as ever with so much uncertainty surrounding the top of the class. Even with such an unpredictable class, ESPN’s Matt Miller took a full stab at predicting the 2022 NFL Draft, releasing a seven-round mock on Tuesday morning.

There isn’t a true consensus top overall player in this class. With no true top quarterback available this year, a lot of the attention has been on the defensive ends at the top of this year’s crop of players. Betting odds for the first overall pick changed just this week. With that in mind, the first round is nearly impossible to predict in any 2022 NFL mock draft. But Miller tried his hand.

Miller included two trades in his 2022 NFL mock draft, both coming in the first round.
