The 2021 NFL season is finally over and the Los Angeles Rams are the kings of the league for at least one year.
However, the magical run of the Cincinnati Bengals sparked optimism from other NFL franchises.
If the AFC champions could transform from a four-win team to a Super Bowl LVI participant, anything is possible.
Therefore, fans can face the offseason once again with renewed belief that 2022 will be their team’s year.
The loyal fans will look at every cut or free-agent signing that their beloved team will make.
Likewise, they will spend countless hours analyzing the order of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Getting a home-run pick can turn any team from cellar dwellers to contenders.
The Bengals proved that when they selected reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year Ja’Marr Chase with the fifth pick in the 2021 draft.
Now, the other teams are looking for their own Chase that will revive their fortunes for the better.
Quick Analysis Of The Draft Order
Once again, the Jacksonville Jaguars will have the top overall selection a year after drafting Trevor Lawrence in the same position.
This time, they will have Doug Pederson at the helm and the team will certainly draft a non-quarterback.
The Philadelphia Eagles have three picks in the first round, which they might use to upgrade their aging defense and possibly their receiving corps.
Meanwhile, the San Francisco 49ers will give their round one slot to the Miami Dolphins as part of the deal that brought Trey Lance to California in last year’s draft.
It’s not like that they need those picks after winning the title because their roster remains stacked, unless Aaron Donald is serious about retirement.
