Munich – The night of April 28 begins one of the most important weekends for the NFL franchises. In the 2022 NFL Draft, the most desirable college players will move to the NFL. ProSieben MAXX will broadcast the first round of the draft live (on the night from Thursday to Friday from 1:40 am), the other days can be followed in live streaming on ran.de.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have the first choice. The “Jags” were allowed to open the draft last year. At the time, the Florida franchise chose quarterback Trevor Lawrence. The full 2022 draft ordinance can be found here.
+++ April 28, 10:45 pm: Are the Jaguars still trading the number one pick? +++
According to NFL expert Mike Florio, the Jacksonville Jaguars are considering several options for what to do with the first pick in this year’s draft, so swapping the number one pick is also likely under discussion.
Florio himself states that the Jaguars are “trying to find a way out of the first choice”. However, the reporter also reports that no other team has any fundamental interest in trading for first choice.
So it shouldn’t be easy for Jacksonville to get rid of the pick, especially since there’s only a few hours left for the draft. It looks like the Jaguars will become the first team to pick a player for the second consecutive year.
However, it is not yet clear who it will be. It was recently reported that CEO Trent Baalke and team owner Shad Kahn also disagreed on the selection.
+++ April 28, 7:30 pm: Drake with a crazy $ 100,000 +++ bet
Rap star Drake revealed on his own Instagram that he bet $ 100,000 on Drake London being picked as the first wide receiver.
The odds set by the bookmakers on the bet are 3.35 which means the superstar would make $ 235,000 if London were actually the first selected receiver by a team.
When it comes to the mega bet, Drake completely trusts his namesake, who played for the USC Trojans in college and is one of the best prospects in this year’s draft wide receiver class.
If the rapper is actually right it may turn out to be at the beginning of the draft. The Atlanta Falcons, who pick 8th, and the New York Jets, who pick 4th and 10th, could use a good wide receiver, among others.
+++ April 28, 7pm: Are Texans still on the rise? +++
The Houston Texans could be mistaken for a second pick in the top 10, according to sources from ESPN reporter Adam Schefter.
In addition to their first pick in third place in the 2022 NFL Draft, the Texans also have a pick in 13th in the first round. However, according to the report, Houston officials are also considering swapping second pick to get another top ten pick.
However, the basic requirement for this should be the availability of “a suitable player”. Either way, Texans need the O-Line, cornerbacks, backfields and edge rushes.
+++ April 28, 11:40 am: Does the Jaguars front office disagree on the overall first choice? +++
What are Jaguars doing with “choice number one”? Not even 24 hours before the start of the draft is there probably disagreement among the “Jags”. Team owner Shad Kahn is said to prefer defensive end Aidan Hutchinson. General manager Trent Baalke is currently leaning towards Travon Walker, who is also defensive. Jonathan Jones of “CBS Sports” reports it.
Hutchinson has long been considered a clear first choice. However, thanks to strong training, 21-year-old Walker is said to have gotten into the conversation.
Both players are expected to have a good career in the NFL. In college, however, Hutchinson (62 tackles, 16.5 tackles lost, and 14 sacks) outperformed his competitor (Walker: 33 tackles, 7.5 tackles lost and six sacks).
