The best way to grade any draft is to judge each team before any player ever touches the field. Everyone knows that.
Everyone with a Twitter account or blog will tell you who won and who lost this draft; I thought I shouldn’t be any different.
Here are 3 winners of the 2022 NFL Draft.

In my opinion, the biggest winners in this year’s draft are the New York Jets. Jets fans can be awfully pessimistic at times, and for a good reason. However, fans should be looking for brighter days after this past weekend. Sauce Gardner is arguably the greatest secondary player in the draft. At the same time, the team managed to pull off a top receiver in Garrett Wilson and another defensive stud in Jermaine Johnson. Enjoy being the champions of the 2022 NFL Draft, September will come soon enough, and the Jets will be looking for a way to Jet.
New York Giants

New York football is on the rise in both organizations from the Big Apple. The New York Football Giants may have possibly pulled off the most significant coup in the 2022 draft. Bringing edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux and offensive lineman Evan Neal, the Giants could have the best players at those respected positions. Time will tell if New York football is actually back. Both teams still have the biggest question mark under center.

If you’re not rooting for Dan Campbell to be the one to bring the Detroit Lions out of the NFL basement, are you even a bro, bro? Campbell and Lions’ GM Brad Holmes seemingly knocked the 2022 Draft out of the park by bringing in the homegrown Michigan kid Aidan Hutchinson and then surpingsly trading up later in the First Round to take Alabama wideout, Jamison Williams. With the addition of Kentucky EDGE Josh Paschal, the Lions are looking to make a statement in year two of coach Campbell’s tenure. Atta baby!
