The Jaguars had the best day the organization has had in a long time. Jacksonville won its season finale over the Colts and still secured the No. 1 overall choice after the Lions beat the Packers.

The Jaguars also had the No. 1 overall choice last year and drafted quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

The Giants have two choices in the top seven in the 2022 draft, and the Jets have two top-10 selections. The Eagles have picks 15 and 16 as well as their own choice, which won’t be determined until their postseason ends.

The 2022 draft will take place in Las Vegas on April 28-30.

1. Jaguars (3-14)

2. Lions (3-13-1)

3. Texans (4-13)

  1. Well

    Was Fields worth losing the 7th pick? Was Adams worth losing the 10th pick? Is Wentz worth the 16th pick?

    And… whatever Miami was doing last year with their random trades worth the 15th pick?

    Too early to call on all but the Adams one I guess

  2. That 7th overall pick would have sure been nice for my Bears to have come April. Justin Fields better turn out to be worth it.

  3. For transparency I am a Lions fan. But, looking at this board I see the Eagles as looking hot. They are going to build on top of what they have in asymetrical running power game. They own the sweet spot in this draft. Also hoping the Lions get their guy too.

  4. Shouldn’t be allowed to have back to back #1 overall. If your organization is that bad too bad!

  5. …and the Jags might have the first pick next year too…if they continue to start Fabio insteada trading him while he still has value…see what the Cards did with Josh Rosen…having burned multiple picks to trade up and draft him…they had every reason to want to make it work…

    ————————-

    Jaylen Waddle, and yes he got Mac Jones drafted top 15 when he should’ve been a 3rd rounder.

    2-0 against New England.

  7. know who else has had back to back #1 pick in their history: Browns
    Yep… Jags are in the same category as the lowly Browns!

  8. So the lion’s big victory is over the Packers practice squad. I’m sick of people saying that these guys are leaving everything on the field for Campbell. Newsflash, you need talent to win in this league and the lion’s don’t have much. Everyone get ready to hear whoever they take number 2 was always first on their board. Why oh why do I bother with this dumpster fire anymore. 50 years is enough ffs

    Sorry but Mac is better than any Miami QB since Marino and it only took 1 year to prove it

  10. Our Vikings will win the draft again. The all-important first step in capturing another off season championship.

  11. The Jaguars don’t exactly have a stellar history of #1 draft picks, so there’s no real reason for them to celebrate. They’ll jag up the coaching hire and then jag up the draft. It’s what they do.

  12. Look for the Texans to trade Watson and get at least one 1st round pick in this year’s draft.

    IMHO, I think Watson will be traded to the Giants and get the 5th and 7th picks in this year’s draft, + the 2nd and both 3rds the Giants have this year, but nothing else. The Giants have Barkley and Galloway, who had a down year, but he will bounce back with Watson throwing the ball. Trading away 5 picks in this year’s draft is nothing for a franchise QB who you will have for at least a decade!

    Whatever the Texans get for Watson, they will be able to reload via the draft. The Texans have their QB for at least next year because Davis Mills has really made huge strides in his play this season. Mills has 4 – 300+ yards passing games in 11 starts. That is a 36% of his starts as a rookie. Mills also has a high completion % and his interceptions have gone way down in his last 6 games started. If Mills proves he is not the QB of the future for the Texans when he starts for them next year, then in 2023 the Texans can draft his replacement.

    The Texans do need a new OC, but HC Culley has the team playing hard every week and should be back for a 2nd season!

  13. Just think if the eagles made the right choice by choosing j. Jefferson instead J. Reagor?

  14. Just think if the eagles made the right choice by choosing j. Jefferson instead J. Reagor?
    Jim harbaugh should go to the jags

  15. Of course the New York teams get multiple top ten picks in the biggest dumpster fire draft in recent memory.

    Also funny: the lions screwing themselves out of drafting the local kid Hutchinson by meaninglessly beating a team they never beat when it matters.

  16. “Our Vikings will win the draft again. The all-important first step in capturing another off season championship.”

    Sorry my friend, that position is relegated to Dallas. They are predicting a 2023 Super Bowl already.
    Signed, the rest of the NFL.

    Watson has a no-trade clause which is why he’s able to pick where he goes (if and when he gets traded). Watson doesn’t give a flying fig what the trade return is and there’s no way he’d ok a trade to a Joe Judge led team.

    That giants game was the worst example of coaching i’ve seen. The Giants are an embarrassment and not only because of their roster.

  18. Weird that Cleveland is 13 and Baltimore is 14, yet the Browns were 3rd in the Division, and the Ravens are 4th. I understand the rules… just weird to see that there are different rules for division placement and draft placement.

  19. Coach Carroll & the front office has to be feeling better this morning. Overall, the Seahawks did good by winning yesterday. They moved the traded to Jets draft pick from 7 to 10. They kept the Cardinals from winning the Division. They showed they were a quality team that doesn’t need to be completely blown up.

  20. Jags take one of the two EDGE rushers, likely the young man out of Oregon, and the top OT w/their second pick. Unless they can find a trade partner in the top-ten, move down a few spots (and pick up a selection or two), and take the TOP OT. If the Jags can sort out their offensive line this off-season they might be a bit dangerous next season.

  21. Did anyone else think that Golliday
    Mailed that game in yesterday?
    Total lack of enthusiasm on the field.I am not a Giants fan but I think they should move on from this
    Soon to be diva…on the other hand,
    BARKLEY PLAYED HIS HEART OUT.
