The 2022 NFL draft will be held on April 28 -30 in Las Vegas. This 87th annual NFL draft will consist of 262 total selections over seven rounds.

The format of the draft is that each team gets to pick a player from the current crop of college leavers, traditionally graduating seniors but in recent years of redshirts and transfers this can include anyone who is more than four years out of high school and declares their eligibility. The teams pick in reverse order to how they finished the season, so the bottom team picks first and the Super Bowl winner picks last. However, teams can buy, sell, and trade their pick to other teams so it can quickly get very complicated indeed.

The world’s focus will be firmly on the the Thursday evening when Round 1 will take place. Each team will have a strictly-enforced 10 minutes to get their selection in, for a total of 320 minutes or 3 hours 40 minutes per round. Friday will see Rounds 2 and 3 take place and the Saturday will host Rounds 4 through 7.

Here are all of the picks for the first three rounds.

While the draft is not the be-all and end-all for NFL success, teams can stake a claim to some of tomorrow’s hottest players and franchises can be turned around with the picks made on these days. You only need to have a look at Cincinnati to see that. Two years ago, they finished dead last and took Joe Burrow as the first overall pick. The club turnaround is well underway and they made it to the Super Bowl as a result of that pick.
