With Super Bowl 56 in the rearview, Todd McShay of ESPN has turned his attention to the 2022 NFL Draft. The selection order is finalized, and the biggest needs of each franchise are glaring.

As McShay mentions, the reigning Super Bowl champions won’t have a first round pick, as the Los Angeles Rams deployed a strategy where they traded their first rounder once again. For the sixth straight season, the Rams have nothing planned for Day 1 of the NFL Draft. However, the football world is sure they’ll take their Super Bowl rings over an exciting NFL Draft.

Moreover, McShay has four quarterbacks selected in the first round of a draft where the quarterback class has been determined to be weak. Evidently, he believes teams will reach for the most important position in sports.

With Super Bowl 56 behind us and the 2022 NFL Draft on the horizon, here’s Todd McShay’s mock draft 2.0.
