The week of the 2022 NFL Draft is here. We're just days away from the clock starting and finding out where these prospects will land. Here is how the draft could shake out after the first two rounds.

1. Jacksonville Jaguars: DE Aidan Hutchinson, Michigan

Aidan Hutchinson is an experienced, productive and well-built defensive end. He primarily wins with his length and technique, managing distance well. Hutchinson also fights hands to keep his frame clear. What’s more, he employs early hands and strings a wide variety of moves together with an incredible work rate. - Scouting Report Blurb on 4-3 DE Aidan Hutchinson, Michigan

2. Detroit Lions: DE Travon Walker, Georgia

Walker possesses the leg drive and motor to drive opponents back. In the run game, he is able to impact linemen with his hands, twisting them and enforcing his will. By extending, he stacks and sheds with a push-pull move. Athleticism is apparent when moving laterally, staying square and displaying range while maintaining extension. - Scouting Report Blurb on 4-3 DE Travon Walker, Georgia

3. Houston Texans: CB Ahmad Gardner, Cincinnati

He is a big, physical, and an extremely talented cover cornerback. Can play man or zone coverage and his skill is the same, so the scheme doesn’t matter with this player. Can lock down an entire side of the field just by being in the vicinity. He has long arms and is great at using them to jam receivers at the line of scrimmage. Has the speed and athleticism to follow the player he is covering all over the field. Never gave up a touchdown in his whole college career, which is simply incredible. - Scouting Report Blurb on oCB Ahmad Gardner, Cincinnati

4. New York Jets: OT Evan Neal, Alabama

His length is great and once he lands his hands, he is able to latch on, move his feet and control opponents. He is great when jump setting, as he gets to be more aggressive and shoot his hands immediately. Neal creates movement in the run game, displaying pop in his hands and strong leg drive to open up holes. - Scouting Report Blurb on LT Evan Neal, Alabama

5. New York Giants:OT Ikem Ekwonu, North Carolina State

Ekwonu creates knockback and deals out body blows with his initial strike. Heavy hands allow him to enforce his will on opponents. When he has good positioning, he displays great grip strength. Ekwonu is quick out of his stance and has the foot speed to mirror laterally at guard. - Scouting Report Blurb on LT Ikem Ekwonu, North Carolina State

6. Carolina Panthers: QB Kenny Pickett, Pittsburgh

Pickett is always keeping his eyes downfield, scanning the defense while he scrambles, exhibiting a pass-first mentality when the play breaks down. He has tremendous ability to throw on the run, off platform and when contorting his body while still regularly placing the ball within the strike zone of the WR. Ball placement is one of his best attributes, Pickett understands where to place the ball to maximize YAC, or to help his target avoid a big hit from an incoming defender. - Scouting Report Blurb on QB Kenny Pickett, Pittsburgh

7. New York Giants (via CHI): DE Kayvon Thibodeaux, Oregon

Moreover, the talented pass rusher primarily employs his long arms to enhance his power-rush profile. The All-American consistently initiates contact to an offensive lineman’s frame with accurate and active hands upon initial contact. - Scouting Report Blurb on 4-3 DE Kayvon Thibodeaux, Oregon

8. Atlanta Falcons: EDGE Jermaine Johnson, Florida State

Johnson excels versus the run, playing from 4, 3 and 2 point stances from both the strong and weak side.

9. Seattle Seahawks (via DEN): OT Charles Cross, Mississippi State

His length is above average. Cross locates stunts quickly and has the foot speed to pass them off reliably.

His speed allows him to be a factor on screens to the perimeter and when climbing to the second level. - Scouting Report Blurb on LT Charles Cross, Mississippi State

10. New York Jets (via SEA): CB Derek Stingley Jr., LSU
