2022 NFL Draft: Latest rumors about player scores, deals, angles, team movement 2022-04-27 17:32:30


We have more and more on “What I Hear” 24 hours into Thursday’s first round…

• On Wednesday, some teams asked how many first-round scores are on the draft board. One of them told me 18, another said 16, and another two told me, without giving a specific number, that their number is in that range. Which means, depending on how things go down, and with players in mind, these teams will probably be in their second round scores in their 20s.

Now that doesn’t sound great, but it’s not weird. And that, I think, pretty much illustrates this category – lacking in highly skilled people, but catching up on the regular around teens, with strong and unsurprising rookie-level talent available in the third round.
