What top 5 picks in the NFL draft 2022 can be?

It is difficult to predict the picks for this year’s draft because of uncertainty around the Jaguars selection.

Because the Jaguars for a long time have been looking for an impactful defensive player. Their new defence approach might be perfect for Mike Caldwell from the Buccaneers combined with the relentless and explosive anchor, Aidan Hutchinson.

The Detroit Lions will also be looking for more of a defensive approach. Their picks can be anyone from Kyle Hamilton or Travon Walker. Hamilton is a safe option as he can make plays on the back end and also be handy as an extra line-backer. While Travon is a hybrid playmaker as he can make a run and can make rush passes.

Texans need right side dominance providing strong support to Davis Mills. They can pick Evan Neal, who can be their starting quarterback and dominate the right side. Neal seems to be a suitable option for turning their weakness into a strength.

The New York Jets should be thrilled for Kayvon Thibodeaux if they get their hands on him. He can be a good pick as an explosive pass rusher for the team.

The Giants are probably looking to go for Ickey Ekwonu. The way the team is shaping up under the new team management, Ickey fits right into it and can also make sense for a strong swing backup.
