Lto NFL not stop Two months ago the Rams were crowned in Super Bowl LVIbut the free agency movements, including the novel of Tom Brady and the Buccaneerskeep the league in the spotlight.

Free agency began several weeks ago and continues, but now the focus is on the most traditional event of the spring: the Draft.

College recruiting is just around the corner, where teams will look to strengthen for next season. The first round is where the players that change the destiny of the teams are usually found, although there will be eight that do not have a selection among the first 32 as a result of the changes.

Bears, Broncos, Browns, Colts and Rams they used their first round to trade for a franchise QB (Justin Fields, Russell Wilson, Deshaun Watson, Carson Wentz though he’s no longer in Indianapolis, and Matthew Stafford). The dolphins had two picks, including one originally from the 49ers, but they used it to get Jaylen Waddle in the 2021 Draft and Tyreek Hill a few weeks ago. The last team without a first round is the raiders, who used it to take over Davante Adams.

For the second consecutive year, the Jaguars will have the first overall pick. They never had it before 2021, leaving only the Seahawks, Ravens and Broncos have never had the first pick in a Draft. Jacksonville chose Trevor Lawrence in 2021so they aren’t expected to draft another quarterback in 2022.
