With the NFL season now done until later in 2022, all fans will be looking at other ways to get their football fix. One annual event which always livens up any off-season is the Draft. As any football fan knows, this is when each NFL team picks from the best college players to add to their franchise. The end of April 2022’s Draft is now over, and we know which college prospects have gone to which teams. This also means we can look at which NFL franchises have done the best in the Draft and look to be much stronger than before. As well as being fun, this can also help if you like to bet on football. By getting an idea of which teams might be stronger going into the 2022’s season, you can use this knowledge when betting on games.
If you like to make future bets, you can also use the knowledge around who did best in the Draft to wager on who could make it to the next Superbowl or even win it. If you also combine this with checking out the latest NFL predictions and news, you have a firm foundation to bet from. With this in mind, it really does make sense to look at which teams made out best in the Draft. But who was this?
Which teams did best in the 2022 NFL Draft
There is no doubt that the Ravens would have been looking to strengthen their team after a disappointing season in 2021. The good news is that they are arguably the team that did the best in 2022’s Draft and should reap the benefits in the coming season.
Kyle Hamilton’s move to Baltimore looks to be the best of all their deals. He should be an instant starter for them at safety and greatly improve them in this area. The Ravens also used the Draft wisely to pick up two awesome prospects in Tyler Linderbaum (centre) and David Ojabo (edge). Linderbaum, in particular, will not only fill a weakness in their roster but also have the talent to start playing right away. With others such as Travis Jones, Daniel Faalele and Tyler Badie coming in to bulk up the squad, there is enough talent in the Ravens’ locker room now to cover for injuries to players such as Gus Edwards better.
New York Jets
There is no doubt that the Jets would also have been disappointed with how their 2021 season went overall. There is nothing to boast about a bottom place finish in AFC East and a 4-13 regular-season record. They also did well in the 2022 NFL Draft and should hopefully be on course for a better year ahead. As with all the latest sports news, this can really make a difference in how you feel about a team’s chances.
The simple truth is that GM Joe Douglas and coach Robert Saleh somehow managed to sign a bunch of top-class prospects for their team. For example, Garret Wilson at wide receiver should give their offence a real boost and make them more threatening in attack. When you also add in picks such as Sauce Gardner (cornerback), Jermain Johnson (edge) and Jeremy Ruckert (tight end), they suddenly look to be a much tougher team to play against. With their major needs at the corner, pass-rushing and wide addressed, they could fly in 2022.
Unlike the team above, the Eagles did not have too bad a season in 2021. While their playoff loss to Tampa stung, a 9-8 regular-season record and a second-place finish in the NFC East were decent enough. As with all teams, though, they would have been looking to improve for the coming season, and they enjoyed an awesome Draft in 2022 to help.
Jordan Davis at defensive tackle and Nakoba Dean at linebacker are the two picks that Eagles fans should be most excited about. They will make the team much stronger defensively and tougher to get down the middle of. Cam Jurgens also looks to be a smart choice to join the team, and Grant Calcaterra at tight end is a decent prospect to have in reserve for now.
2022 NFL Draft – which sides did best
With the NFL Draft now completed, it is fun to look at which prospects teams have picked up and who looks to have done best. While this is all subjective, and it is impossible to say for sure until play starts, the NFL teams above do look to have come out of the recent Draft very well. This should set them up well for a decent season in 2022.
