NFL mock draft 2022 – Todd McShay’s post-Super Bowl predictions for all 32 first-round picks, including QB landing spots
The 2021 NFL season is over, after the Los Angeles Rams won Super Bowl LVI on Sunday night. The Rams don’t currently have a first-round pick in the 2022 NFL draft, dealing it away to help land quarterback Matthew Stafford. It will be the sixth straight draft in which they relax on Day 1 — but I think it’s safe to say they’ll be OK with that.
But for 27 teams that do have a first-round selection, it’s time to starting planning ahead and stacking prospect boards.

While Nick Chubb and Wyatt Teller have their contracts expiring at the end of the season, Baker Mayfield’s extension is the most important for the Cleveland Browns.
Denzel Ward joins Mayfield, Chubb and Teller as the four big extensions need among the Browns long list of upcoming free agents.
Mayfield’s situation is cluttered by the other quarterbacks in his class also seeking extensions. Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen are in the same boat as the Browns quarterback after being drafted in the first round as well. Mayfield, as the top pick in the 2018 NFL draft, has had to deal with a ton of turnover and instability in Cleveland while Jackson and Allen have been well supported by their organizations since their rookie season.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported that Mayfield’s deal could be the first done of the three big quarterbacks from their draft class:
