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.

So it seems like a good time to once again predict the first 32 picks of April’s first round. Who will be the No. 1 pick? How will teams with multiple selections retool, and who will land the top prospects? And where will the quarterbacks go? You likely won’t see teams scrambling to jump into the top five for a

Jerami Grant Trade Rumors: Pistons Seeking 2 1st-Round Draft Picks for Forward | Bleacher Report

Jerami Grant is a valuable potential acquisition for contenders ahead of Thursday’s NBA trade deadline, and the Detroit Pistons reportedly want plenty in return.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Wednesday on SportsCenter that the forward “has stirred a lot of interest around the league. He kind of fits almost anywhere. Detroit’s asking price has largely stayed at two first-round picks.”

Wojnarowski pointed to the Portland Trail Blazers as having interest in acquiring Grant, although they may not have enough assets.

Interest around the NBA is no surprise considering Grant’s skill set and the fact that he is not a rental. He is under contract through the 2022-23 campaign and could help in a couple of playoff runs.

Grant is averaging 19.1 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals per game while shooting 40.4 percent from the field and 33.1 percent from deep. While the shooting
