Projected NFL draft order for 2022: Who has the No. 1 pick?

TheJacksonville Jaguarshave the best chance to pick No. 1 overall in the2022 NFL draft,according to the updated draft order projections (1 to 32) from the ESPN Football Power Index (FPI). The Jaguars were handed their 20th straight loss by the Titans on Sunday. The now 3-2 Titans are projected to pick at No. 21 in this latest draft projection.

There already have been five trades involving first-round picks in the 2022 draft, with the New York Giants projected to have two top-10 picks. The Philadelphia Eagles are currently projected to have three top-10 picks, thanks to deals with the Miami DolphinsandtheIndianapolis Colts--the latter of which involves a conditional pick based on quarterback Carson Wentz's playing time. After spraining both ankles in Week 2, Wentz has started the past three weeks. He led the Colts to a 25-9 fourth-quarter lead on Monday Night Football, but the Ravens launched a comeback and won in overtime.


Every week during the season, the FPI projects the draft order by simulating the remainder of the season 10,000 times. Game probabilities are based largely on the model's ratings for individual teams in addition to game locations. The order is based on the records the model believes the teams will have after 17 games, and the order is based on each team's average draft position in the simulations.
