Bestinau got that-


The 2022 NFL Draft will feature three teams: the New York Giants, New York Jets and Philadelphia Eagles.

Both the Giants and Jets will have a few top-10 picks, while the Eagles will have three of the first 19 picks.

Here’s what Pro Football Focus predicted in its latest first-round mock-up.

jets

The Jets have a few first-round picks in 2022: their own, plus one from the Seattle Seahawks as part of the Jamal Adams trade.

4. OT ICKEY EKWONU, NC STATE

Ekwonu should be considered a lock to go to the Jets at number 4 overall if he gets past Houston. … He was also PFF’s highest-rated run-blocking offensive tackle in the FBS last season.

10. (from SEA) WR DRAKE LONDONUSC

His ball skills and body control combine to make for excellent play at the catching point, and he is one of the best receivers in the class at creating yards after the catch.
