Washington secures No. 11 overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft

By Bryan Manning

The 2021 NFL regular season is now complete; the 2022 NFL draft order is set for those teams who did not make the playoffs. That includes the Washington Football Team.

After Sunday’s win over the Giants, Washington fell one spot in the draft order and will pick No. 11 overall in the 2022 NFL draft.

Remember how many fans wanted Washington to lose to the Giants one week ago, fearing the WFT would fall too far in the draft order. Washington not only dominates the Giants to end the season but only loses two positions in the draft order. Not bad.

Washington still has a shot at one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL draft, if that’s the goal. Or, if Washington needs to move up for a quarterback, it shouldn’t need to give up too much to make a move.

Washington’s front office was busy throughout the 2021 season on the road scouting all of college football’s top passers and will likely be present at the Senior Bowl, where some of the top prospects will participate.

Here’s a look at the top 18 picks:

  1. Jacksonville
  2. Detroit
  3. Houston
  4. N.Y. Jets
  5. N.Y. Giants
  6. Carolina
  7. NY. Giants via Chicago
  8. Atlanta
  9. Denver
  10. N.Y. Jets via Seattle
  11. Washington
  12. Minnesota
  13. Cleveland
  14. Baltimore
  15. Philadelphia via Miami
  16. Philadelphia via Indianapolis
  17. New Orleans
  18. Pittsburgh
