NFL Draft order 2022: Updated list of picks for every non-playoff team after Week 18

Jaguars are the best at being the worst.

Even with a win on Sunday, the Jaguars enter the offseason with the first overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, thanks in part to the Lions notching a win over the Packers in Week 18.

It’s the Jaguars’ second consecutive No. 1 overall pick: In 2021, the team selected quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who looked like the player many had hoped would come out of Clemson.

Jacksonville was rescued by the Lions, who earned their own victory over the Packers in Week 18. With both teams winning, the draft order at the top remains the same as it was entering Week 18.

While the # 1 and # 2 picks are locked in, there are still plenty of draft order deals to be decided on the rest. Week 18: The Jets play on a late afternoon schedule, facing the Bills, and could return to No. 4 overall if they lose.

* Position in the Draft secured

– The Eagles currently have three first-round picks, including the Colts’ first-round pick as part of the Carson Wentz trade. For the selection to become a first round, Wentz must play ≥75 percent of the snapshots this year OR Wentz plays ≥70 percent of the snapshots and Indianapolis makes the playoffs, conditions that were essentially met as of the Week 16.

– The Giants currently have the Bears’ first-round pick, which was sent as part of a draft trade Chicago made to select quarterback Justin Fields in 2021.

– The Dolphins currently have the 49ers first-round pick as part of a pre-draft trade. San Francisco selected quarterback Trey Lance at No. 3 overall in 2021.

– The Jets currently have the Seahawks first-round pick as part of the Jamal Adams trade in 2020.

– Teams 19-32 are in the hands of teams currently in the picture of the NFL playoffs.


Defense is the name of the game in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Featured by the top two pass rushers, Kayvon Thibodeaux of Oregon and Aiden Hutchinson of Michigan, this year’s defensive class could prove to be building blocks for teams looking to increase their weight over D.

After the leading group, NFL squads might salivate over secondary options: LSU cornerback Derek Stingley is a former consensus All-American, which includes getting a nod from Sporting News in 2019, and he could be a of the top five teams in April. Scouts and analysts have listed Stingley as CB’s best prospect by far in this year’s draft.

Joining Stingley in a solid secondary group is Notre Dame’s Kyle Hamilton, who could also be a good bet to be the first DB off the board. The Fighting Irish safety was named All-American by consensus last season, and for good reason: He scored three interceptions for one of the best defenders in the nation and was named a finalist for the Bednarik Award in 2021.

On the offensive side of the ball, teams looking for quarterback saviors will have options, though whether or not there is a bona fide No. 1 quarterback to emerge before the draft: North Carolina’s Sam Howell was the last in. declare, joining Kenny Pickett of Pittsburgh and Matt Corral of Ole Miss.

Cincinnati’s Desmon Ridder and Liberty’s Malik Willis are also expected to enter the 2022 NFL Draft.
