The 87th edition of the NFL draft is complete. A total of 262 players were selected. Which 10 franchises made it through the three-day event?
It’s over. It’s all over.
Yes, the 2022 NFL Draft is complete and all 32 teams have months of work behind them. Now comes the process of nabbing those college prospects who weren’t among the 262 selections in Las Vegas.
So here’s a subjective look at who’s excelled over the last three days when it came to strengthening their roster.
10. Houston Texans
In the previous four drafts combined, the Houston Texans had picked one player. But that has changed fundamentally this year. Cornerback Derek Stangley Jr. (LSU) was selected with the third overall pick. General manager Nick Caserio signed a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles and moved up from 13th to 15th, picking up extra picks and snapping up Texas A&M guard Kenyon Green.
In the second round, Jalen Petrie (Baylor) and highly regarded fullback John Metchie III (Alabama) secured the net. And any concerns about the latter’s cruciate ligament rupture, which he sustained late in the season, are addressed by Metchie himself (via the Houston Chronicle).
9. Green Bay Packers
In the last two off-seasons, there has been a lot of fear for this team for a variety of reasons. Armed with 11 picks going into the draft, the Green Bay Packers would certainly be looking to fill the void left by the wide receiver’s trade to the Las Vegas Raiders.
But general manager Brian Gutekunst addressed the club’s suspect defense in the first round by adding former University of Georgia standouts Quay Walker and Devonte Wyatt. The Packers sent two second-round picks to the rival Vikings, picking up Christian Watson (North Dakota State) 34th overall. And the defending NFC North champion added depth to the defensive and offensive lines in the final five rounds.
