When the NFL calendar hits December, there develops a key separation of teams with something for which to play in 2021 from those who need to start looking ahead to the 2022 NFL Draft.The Jets, Giants and Eagles won't be making the playoffs, but they can look forward most to next year with two first-round picks each. At the moment, based on their respective past trade partners Seahawks, Bears and Dolphins also looking like also-rans those three marquee East Coast teams all would pick twice in the top 10.With the fluctuating value of prospects before the college playoffs,bowls and all-star games ahead, there's also a shakeup of where the best players, including the quarterbacks, might go. Based on , https://www.ramsmaster.com/David_Long_Jersey.NFL plus keeping in mind the structure of , here are the latest projections for the first-round picks in 2022, from 1-32:BIG BOARD: 1. Detroit Lions Kayvon Thibodeaux, EDGE, Oregon(6-5, 258 pounds)There will be some local push to go after Michigan superstar Aidan Hutchinson, a https://www.ramsmaster.com/Jamon_Brown_Jersey.NFL native of the state, but he's a better fit in a 4-3 front as a defensive end. But Thibodeaux, on top of the being the more athletic anddisruptive pa s rusher overall, is more versatile to thrive in Aaron Glenn's front seven.2. Houston TexansMatt Corral, QB, Ole Mi s (6-0, 200 pounds)The Texans need help in many areas but the ugly Deshaun Watson they need to think quarterback first above all else. They need to take a deep dive into whom they prefer most as a prospect, but it's a good chance to be Corral. He is a dynamic athlete and confident runner who also shows aggre sivene s with a big arm. He has quickly refined his raw skills under Lane Kiffin.3. Jacksonville JaguarsEvan Neal https://www.ramsmaster.com/Michael_Brockers_Jersey.NFL , OT, Alabama (6-7, 350 pounds)Trevor Lawrence will need better offensive line support in Year 2. So will Travis Etienne when he returns from his foot injury, to boost his running game. Neal is a no-brainer to dominate as a pa s protector and run blocker for many years to come. Cam Robinson is fading badly as a pending free agent, so Neal should straight right away at left tackle.MORE: 4. New York Jets (from Seahawks)Aidan Hutchinson, EDGE, Michigan (6-6, 265 pounds)Hutchinson would be the ideal rebuilding block for Robert Saleh's defense, with his high effort, energy and level of production in the Big Ten should remind of the 49ers' star from Ohio State, Nick Bosa. The Jets also play the 4-3 scheme to maximize Hutchinson getting to the QB and also playing the run well.5. New York JetsDerek Stingley Jr, CB, LSU (6-1, 195 pounds)The Jets have gotten some goodcornerback play in the first year Saleh's defense, but in a zone scheme that connectsto Seattle's "Legion of Boom,"they need a more dynamicplaymaking presence. Stingley is a do-everything impact defensive back who can cover a lot of ground and different types of receivers. Hutchinson and Stingley https://www.ramsmaster.com/Joe_Namath_Jersey.NFL would be an amazing combination to upgrade the pa s defense.6. New York GiantsTyler Linderbaum, C, Iowa (6-3, 290 pounds)The Giants would be smart to double up on can't-mi s offensive lineman in the first round. Linderbaum, an intelligent rock of an interior blocker and a perfect long-term line leader,would be a great fit, too, as a major upgrade from Billy Price. 7. New York Giants (from Bears)Ikem Ekwonu, G, N.C. State (6-4, 320 pounds)While Linderbaum bumps the Giants up from Price, Ekwonu can change the game at guard replacing another pending free agent, Will Hernandez. Saquon Barkley would love to have this nasty and powerful run blocking flanking Linderbaum.8. Philadelphia EaglesKyle Hamilton, S, Notre Dame( https://www.ramsmaster.com/Aqib_Talib_Jersey.NFL 6-4, 220 pounds)The Eagles will have a need at safety in 2022, either needing to replaceaging Rodney McLeod or pending free agent Anthony Harris. Hamilton makes a lot of sense as an intelligent all-around force to clean up for defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon.9. Philadelphia Eagles ( https://www.ramsmaster.com/Jalen_Ramsey_Jersey.NFL from Dolphins)George Karlaftis, EDGE, Purdue (6-4, 275 pounds)The Eagles also need to rev up the edge pa s rush defensively with Brandon Graham tearing his Achilles' before his age 34 pending free agent season and Derek Barnett heading into free agency. Karlaftis po se ses elite athleticism for his size and is still tapping into his immense pa s-rush potential.MORE:10. Carolina PanthersMalik Willis, QB, Liberty (6-1, 215 pounds)The Panthers brought Cam Newton back and got intrigued by what a running threat at QB can do for the rest of Joe Brady's offense. What was mi sing was the big arm and le s wear. Willis has a cannon for an arm and great speed. He should have the potential to make scouting jaws drop at the position and make them le s concerned about his small-school status given his awesome play so far. 11. New Orleans SaintsChris Olave, WR, Ohio State (6-1, https://www.ramsmaster.com/Clay_Matthews_Jersey.NFL 189 pounds)The Saints need to addre s wideout with Michael Thomas' future clouded by injury and discontent, so it's nice they can go back to Ohio State, this time in the first round instead. Olave has great speed, quickne s and burst to emerge as their new No. 1 for whoever's the quarterback.12. Atlanta FalconsDeMarvin Leal, DT/DE, Texas A&M (6-4, 290 pounds)The Falcons need more impact up front with Grady Jarrett given Jonathan Bullard is a pending free agent.Leal isa versatile disruptor who can thrive lining up anywhere inside or outside on Dean Peesthree-man front. He's shown off his interior pa s-rushing skills with 8.5 sacks but he also is a stout run stopper.13. Minnesota VikingsDevin Lloyd, LB, Utah (6-3, 235 pounds)The Vikings will need to addre s the second level for Mike Zimmer with oft-injured aging Anthony Barr heading into free agency along with Nick Vigil.Lloyd is a strong rangy athlete who stands out making plays, with smarts and good instincts made for their zone scheme https://www.ramsmaster.com/Orlando_Pace_Jersey.NFL .14. Philadelphia Eagles (from Colts)David Ojabo, EDGE, Michigan (6-5, 250 pounds)The Eagles shouldn't mind going bookends for their 4-3 https://www.ramsmaster.com/Merlin_Olsen_Jersey.NFL after taking Karlaftis out of Purdue. Ojabo would give them another flashy freakish player after his speed, explosivene s and energy added up to his big rise behind his end-mate Hutchinson.15. Cleveland BrownsGarrett Wilson,WR, Ohio State (6-0, 188 pounds)The Browns also should be in the market for a No. 1 outside and can also tap into Columbus for much-needed pa sing game pop in Cleveland. Wilson has been a good complementary technician to Olave and does everything required of him well but he also has his share of big-play qualities.MORE: 16.Pittsburgh SteelersKenny Pickett, QB, Pittsburgh (6-3, 220 pounds)Pickett has surged into first-round consideration with other big-name QBs fading thanks to outstanding play to make the Panthe
