Halloween just passed us by so naturally it is time to start talking about the 2022 NFL Draft.
Draft fever never dies for NFL fans and the fact the season is eight weeks old means we can all see the teams poised to pick early.
The 2022 draft is fascinating because some past trades present an interesting top 10, at least with how things stand right now.
Here is how the order looks right now:
- Detroit Lions
- Philadelphia Eagles (Pick from Miami)
- Houston Texans
- Jacksonville Jaguars
- Washington Football Team
- New York Giants
- New York Jets
- Philadelphia Eagles (Pick from Colts)
- Philadelphia Eagles
- New York Jets (Pick from Seahawks)
As fans can see, the Eagles and Jets are poised to dominate the top 10 of the picks if the current results hold.

One Team In Perfect Position
The Eagles are sitting pretty right now.
They own Miami’s first-round pick this year which could easily stay at No. 2 overall given the trajectory of that team.
Even if they start to show some flashes of success, it will be hard for the Dolphins to have a major turnaround at this point.
The pick the Eagles got from the Colts is interesting because it requires Carson Wentz to play at least 75 percent of the team’s snaps to convey as a first-rounder.
So far, he has barely missed a snap.
The Eagles then have their own pick, which sits at No. 9 overall.
What this allows the team to do is make some big trades and improve while still potentially having a top pick in the draft.
The results on the field aren’t great right now, but the future is bright.
Jets fans are hoping the same is true as their team currently has two top-10 picks.
The one acquired from Seattle could slide, but it does not appear the Seahawks are Super Bowl contenders this year.
If they do get better the Jets’ own pick should not climb out of the top 10 unless Mike White becomes a folk hero.
One thing that seems certain is the Lions remaining at the top.

That is a good thing for the franchise because it is clear they need a top pick just to have a shot at being successful in the future.
