The Eagles, Jets and Giants do not have big seasons, but they are ready to be in good shape in the 2022 NFL draft.
Philadelphia in particular may have the kind of draft capital we almost never see in any NFL draft. Based on the current draft order, the Eagles would have both their own first-round pick (No. 8 overall), the Dolphins’ first-round pick (No. 2 overall) from the trade that allowed Miami to take Jaylen Waddle, and the Colts’ first-round pick (No. 9 overall) from Carson Wentz’s trade.
The Jets would have two of the top 10 picks: their own (No. 7 overall) and Seattles (No. 10 overall) from the Jamal Adams trade.
The Giants wanted two of the top 11 picks: their own (No. 5 overall) and the Chicago (No. 11 overall) from the trade that allowed the Bears to draft Justin Fields.
The undefeated Lions currently have the inside of the first overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft. The Dolphins and Texans are both 1-7 and tied for the second-worst record in the NFL. Tiebreaker is the strength of the schedule that would currently give the Eagles a No. 2 pick through the Dolphins. But the tiebreak may not matter, for the Texans and Dolphins play against each other on Sunday. In a game that will be ugly to watch unless you have a keen interest in the 2022 NFL draft order.
