With Round 1 over with, what could Round 2 of the 2022 NFL Draft look like?

You thought that you wouldn’t have to see another mock draft now that Round 1 of the 2022 NFL Draft is over. You thought wrong!

Yes, Day 1 has concluded after an entertaining night of selections. However, there are still plenty of selections still to be made, so why not take a shot at projecting what they might be?

The Bears are among the teams entering the fray for the first time in this year’s draft today, as multiple teams are without first-round picks, especially after Thursday’s several trade shakeups. They find the cupboard pretty bare after 9 offensive linemen went Round 1, but they luckily have plenty of talented players to choose from at other positions of need like wide receiver, cornerback and defensive line.

I won’t be projecting any trades in this Round 2 mock, though some will surely happen in real life. That said, here’s a shot at what could happen in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
