NFL Draft 2022: Top-10 Positional Rankings – Offence

NFL Draft 2022: Top-10 Positional Rankings – Offence
Reading Time: 3 minutes.

Our first edition of the top-10 positional rankings in the 2022 NFL Draft is brought to you by our NFL Draft & College Football editor, Owain Jones. He takes you through the top 10 players at each OFFENSIVE position who could be on your team’s roster in 2022.

While the 2022 NFL Draft is stocked with premium defensive talent, there is still some top talent to be had on the offensive side of the ball. The wide receiver class isn’t what it has been the previous couple of years. There isn’t that prospect who is a sure fire top 5 or top 10 pick. Instead, what we have is multiple prospects who all win in different ways and we could again see multiple go in the first round.

We do have a much talked about down year at the quaterback position, but many of those in this year’s class aren’t as developed as we now see coming out of college. Teams will be banking on traits and their is a lot of quarterback with high end traits to choose from.

*Although we have started to see some prospects declare, some prospects included in these lists could still choose to return to school*

Here are our Offensive top-10 positional rankings.

POSITIONAL RANKINGS

This 2022 quarterback class is a down year compared to the class we saw just a year ago. There is still a lot to be decided, which could well come down to how well these quarterbacks play and interview at all-star games.
