2022 NFL Draft Order and Team Regular-Season Records

  • NFL Draft is set for Tuesday, 28 April
  • Scheduled to take place in Vegas
  • We could see more than one team with multiple picks in the top ten

We’re still only around the halfway mark of the 2021 NFL Season, but there will be fans out there who already know that their team is not going to compete this year and it’s now about the future and having a solid draft ahead of the 2022 season.

The NFL needs to guard against tanking at all costs, but it appears that Detroit, Houston, and Jacksonville will duke it out to be the worst, but Philadelphia will be watching this situation with keen interest.

They own Miami’s 1st pick in this Draft and the Dolphins have had a dreadful start, so the Eagles could have some serious capital going into the event.

It’s not thought that this will be a strong class in terms of QB’s which makes it even more interesting in many ways, and here’s how the Draft order currently looks.

*The Eagles’ Pick acquired from the Colts is dependent on Carson Wentz playing 75% of the team’s snaps this year, he currently meets the threshold for this to happen.

NFL Teams Without a First Round Pick in the 2022 NFL Draft

  • Chicago Bears
  • Indianapolis Colts
  • Los Angeles Rams
  • San Francisco 49ers

How Are the NFL Draft Picks allocated?

The picks are given in reverse order based on the regular season records for the previous year as follows:

  • Non playoff teams make up the spots between 1-20 based on their regular season records
  • Wildcard round losers take picks 21-24 in reverse order of regular season records
  • Divisional Round losers take picks 25-28 reverse order of regular season records
  • Conference Championship Losers take picks 29 and 30 in reverse order of regular season records
  • Super Bowl Losers take pick 31
  • Super Bowl Winners Take Pick 32

These picks can be traded, and the draft order stays with the regular season record of the original team
