Best Value Picks2022 NFL DRAFT

The best value picks in the 2022 NFL Draft

We've ranked the best value draft picks across the whole seven rounds. We've compared the expected pick position of the player based on the average of all the scouting services and media outlets in our database to their actual draft position.

If the predicted position is lower than the actual pick, it's considered a reach (in red) and if it's higher (in green) then it's value.

So for instance Jermaine Johnson was expected to go at #19 - and the Jets selected him at 26 - it's a 7+ spot value. On the flip side the Patriots picked Cole Strange at #29 - and he was predicted to tabbed much lower, at 80 - this comes in at a reach of 51!
