The wait is almost over as the NFL teams will soon unveil their 2022 draft cla s by the end of the week. It's an exciting time and one of the most significant events on the off-season calendar as what a team does--or doesn't--do can vastly affect its future not just in the current year but for years to come.What might the first round of the draft look like? Each of the Fan Nation Team Publishers recently got together for a mock draft (with no trades) and made their selections for their respective teams based on the first-round draft order as of Mike Shannon Jersey April 26. And with each pick, the publishers came up with a short explanation for why they went in the direction they did.For the Giants, I came up with two picks, including an offensive tackle and a cornerback. Before unveiling my picks (as well as the other 30 picks made in this mock, I would not at all be surprised if the Giants sit tight at No. 5 and get their offensive tackle and then look to trade out of No. 7 to perhaps the back end of the first round.Doing this would result in two important things. First, it would potentially reduce the amount the cap-strapped Giants would have to pay their rookie cla s.Scroll to ContinueSecond, and just as important, it would potentially give the Giants yet another pick or two in the top 100, where most starters and key role players are typically found. And boy, wouldn't that be a big plus for a Giants team with numerous glaring holes on both sides of the ball.So who will it be for the Giants and the rest of the NFL in the first round? Here without any further delay, is the 2022 Fan Nation Publishers' First Round Mock Draft. 1) Jacksonville JaguarsAidan Hutchinson, EDGE, MichiganThe Jaguars are likely down to either Aidan Hutchinson or Travon Walker at No. 1 overall, but the edge goes to Hutchinson thanks to his ability to make an instant impact. 2) Detroit LionsKayvon Thibodeaux, EDGE, OregonDetroit's defensive line has struggled to effectively rush the quarterback for several years. Thibodeaux will be the "game-changer" the Lions have been searching for on defense. 3) Houston TexansIkem Stan Musial Jersey Ekwonu, OL, North Carolina StateAlthough they added A.J. Cann in free agency, they need more, especially in fixing the 32nd-ranked rushing attack. Ekwonu, who will be a Day 1 starter, comes with experience at guard and tackle, and is known for skills in run blocking. 4) New York JetsTravon Walker, EDGE, GeorgiaWalker is poised to excel on New York's defensive line alongside Carl Lawson and John Franklin-Myers. The Jets will be tempted to take Ahmad Gardner here, but general manager Joe Douglas has a reputation for building through the trenches. 5) New York GiantsEvan Neal, OT, AlabamaThe Giants need to fix their offensive line once and for all. Neal not only gives them an option this year at offensive tackle, but he also gives them position flexibility for the future at guard shoudl the coaches wish Jedd Gyorko Jersey to move him inside. 6) Carolina PanthersMalik Willis, QB, LibertyPanthers GM Scott Fitterer has said he will keep swinging on quarterbacks until they find their guy. Willis isn't the most pro-ready by any means, but he certainly has the most potential. 7) New York Giants (from Chicago)Derek Stingley, Jr, CB, LSUSauce Gardner was tempting here, but Stingley, in having answered some medical questions, has been the more productive cornerback and is a guy who should be able to step in should the Giants part with James Bradberry via trade. 8) Atlanta FalconsGarrett Wilson, WR, Ohio StateBy now, it's no secret that the Falcons need a No. 1 receiver. Wilson has the highest upside of any receiver in the cla s and is a plug-and-play replacement for Calvin Ridley on the perimeter. 9) Seattle Seahawks (from Denver)Ahmad Gardner, CB, CincinnatiSeattle has never drafted a cornerback earlier than the third round in the Pete Carroll era, but Gardner has too much talent and upside to pa s up in the top-10. Basically, he's Richard Sherman with wheels, and playing in a scheme that should cater best to his strengths. 10) New York Jets (from Seattle)Drake London, WR, USCAfter addre sing the defensive line with the No. 4 pick, it's time to give QB Zach Wilson another weapon on offense. New York may try to trade back here or use this pick to go after a proven commodity at the wide receiver position, but London is the pick for Gang Green with Garrett Wilson off the board. 11) Washington CommandersKyle Hamilton, S, Notre DameWith yet another first round pick on defense, coordinator Jack Del Rio will be under more pre sure to get his group to elevate their play, and has plenty of scheme-versatile players to do it with. 12) Minnesota VikingsJameson Williams, WR, AlabamaAdam Thielen is getting up there in age, and the Vikings don't have a ton of depth at receiver. Williams is coming off an ACL injury, but his speed paired with Justin Jefferson's would be scary for opposing St. Louis Cardinals Jersey defenses. 13) Houston Texans (from Cleveland)Chris Olave, WR, Ohio StateOlave is the top route-runner in the cla s and uses his 4.3 speed to create separation either on the boundary or in the slot. He'll become another weapon for Davis Mills in Year 2. 14) Baltimore RavensJordan Davis, DT, GeorgiaDavis is stout against the run, which is a key area for the Ravens. Davis is frequently double-teamed, so he did not have gaudy stats, but this opened opportunities for teammates to make plays. 15) Philadelphia Eagles (from Miami)Jermaine Johnson, Edge, Florida StateThe Eagles had just 29 sacks last year and, while they added pa s rush specialist Haason Reddick in free agency, they could always use more. 16) New Orleans Saints (from Indianapolis through Philadelphia)Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn StateDotson is speedy and will give Jameis Winston the vertical threat he needs from his receiving corps. He may be available at mid-season as he recovers from his injury; that's fine for New Orleans since Michael Thomas is returning. 17) Los Angeles ChargersTrevor Penning, OT, Northern IowaThe Chargers can go a couple of different ways here, but grabbing a right tackle to further protect quarterback Justin Herbert looks like the most fitting selection. Penning gives the Chargers another bookend tackle to pair opposite of last year's rookie Rashawn Slater. 18) Philadelphia Eagles (from New Orleans)Treylon Burks, WR, ArkansasFor the third Tyler O Neill Jersey year in a row, Eagles will go receiver in the first round, giving Jalen Hurts another pa sing target. 19) New Orleans Saints (from Philadelphia)Charles Cro s, OT, Mi si sippi StateNew Orleans must find a long-term solution at left tackle since Terron Armstead signed a ma sive deal with the Dolphins in free agency.
