The 2022 NFL Draft will start on April 28 and will last for three days.
Day one is always reserved for the first round because there are interviews and segments between selections.
Likewise, teams have more time on the clock before submitting their choice.
The Jacksonville Jaguars will have the first overall pick for the second consecutive year.
Meanwhile, the Detroit Lions will close the first round because of the trade that brought Matthew Stafford to the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams.
Seven teams won’t have a draft pick in the first round, and five of them are from the AFC.
The Indianapolis Colts, Cleveland Browns, and the Las Vegas Raiders also don’t have first-rounders.
Rounding up the list are the San Francisco 49ers and the Chicago Bears.
Aside from the serious particulars of the draft, Pro Football Focus’ Ari Meirov pointed out the lighter side through the names of some prospects.
Random fun fact about this year's NFL draft: This draft class has a…
– Chris Paul (OL, Tulsa)
– Isaiah Thomas (DL, Oklahoma)
– Coby Bryant (CB, Cincinnati)
Some legendary NBA names coming to the NFL next season.

Meirov tweeted that of the hundreds of aspirants, there is an offensive lineman called Chris Paul.
He must have gotten wrong tweets intended for the Phoenix Suns point guard, especially from bashers.
More NBA Names In The NFL Draft
Oklahoma defensive lineman Isaiah Thomas might be getting shoutouts on social media because of his famous name.
The spelling of his name is closer to the current Charlotte Hornets guard than the two-time NBA champion with the Detroit Pistons.
Finally, there’s Cincinnati cornerback Coby Bryant whose full name sounds like the late Los Angeles Lakers legend.
He needs to have Mamba Mentality if he wants to build a long NFL career.
