The draft is one of the most exciting times for NFL fans, with teams having to play strategically to fill spots in their team and pick up the best talent. It’s a balancing act between finding talented new prospects and trading a draft position to gain more picks. The idea is to create a fairer league and not allow the top teams to hoard all of the talent. Over the years, the draft has changed a lot, but the basic premise has remained the same. The worst performing teams get to pick first while the top teams go last.

As the NFL has become more competitive, teams have put more focus on scouting and draft strategy. The front office of each team is responsible for draft decisions, including whether to give up first-round picks in return for securing a chance to sign a better player later in the draft. 

A lot of strategy is involved, and each year there are winners and losers. While we won’t know which team had the most successful draft until the season starts, it’s fair to say that some teams did much better than others in April. One thing we know for sure is that the 2022 NFL season is sure to be exciting, and you can find the latest odds for the NFL at Betway. Let’s take a look at the best 2022 NFL draft deals.

The Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles made arguably the best moves of the draft, picking up two very talented players. The begin with, they gave up their 13th pick to gain the 15th and secure Jordan Davies, a huge defensive tackle from the Georgia Bulldogs. Georgia has one of the best defensive football programs in the country and regularly produces beats, and Davis is no exception. At 6’6” and 341 lbs, he’s big but still incredibly quick and has excellent potential to disrupt opposition attacks.

The draft didn’t stop at Davies for the Eagles, however. The team also made the decision to use their 18th overall pick for wide receiver AJ Brown. Brown was traded from the Tennessee Titans, who, despite denying allegations that he would move, gave in and accepted the move in return for a new draft pick. In return, the Titans got Treylon Burks from Arkansas and a third-round pick in the draft.

In Brown, the Eagles have a very talented and capable wide receiver who will help their offense shine. Brown’s contract is also worth $100 million over four years, making him one of the star players of the team. Eagles coach Sirianni will hope that Brown can add an extra dimension to their attack, giving them something they didn’t have before in a new style of play. In addition, having such a capable wide receiver will allow Jalen Hurts to develop and progress, with the quarterback needing to put more trust in his receivers.

The New York Jets

Aside from the Eagles, the New York Jets also had a very strong draft. The Jets made some big moves this season, picking up seven players, all without giving up any future assets. Each player they brought in was for a position that needed addressing, and both offense and defense were addressed. The players drafted by the Jets were CB Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner of Cincinnati, WR Garrett Wilson of Ohio State, and Jermaine Johnson of Florida State. They also took Iowa State running back Breece Hall and Ohio State tight end Jeremy Ruckert before finishing with Louisiana offensive lineman Max Mitchell and Texas A&M defensive lineman Micheal Clemons.

The Jets’ general manager Joe Douglas was in charge of the draft and made his best move of the night when he traded up with the Titans for Florida State’s Jermaine Johnson. In Johnson, the Jets have an extremely talented defensive end that should make an immediate impact on their defensive capabilities. He’s a very polished player despite his age and plays in a position that the Jets desperately needed.
