Defensive end Travon Walker, first overall pick, out of Jacksonville, six receivers called up in the first round, only one quarterback. He is the showcase for the 2022 Draft, the first in Las Vegas. The news of the night, however, comes from a trade: Philadelphia grabs wide receiver AJ Brown, who was displeased with the Titans, who replace him by calling Arkansas’ Treylon Burks an equal role with the 18th pick. surprised i boo of the crowd, some 100,000 people, each time he opened his mouth to announce the 32 options for the first round. Tonight we repeat with second and third, in total there are seven.

Ice Cube was the special guest to open the event, after the silence in memory of Dwayne Haskins, the Steelers quarterback, who recently died after being hit by a vehicle in Florida. Pittsburgh at 20 called up the only quarterback drafted, Kenny Pickett. The worst class in recent years on paper, no one has fallen in love with him. Five players from defending champion Georgia have heard his name uttered. Among the six receivers named — and here we go again — Green Bay didn’t even pick one for Aaron Rodgers …

The Jaguars call first for the second year in a row. Twelve months ago they chose Trevor Lawrence, a quarterback, this time they went for a quarterback chaser, Walker, 21, of Georgia. Questionable choice, based more on potential than Bulldog performance. He is on the couch at his house in Atlanta with his family enjoying it. A moment that will never be forgotten. The lions couldn’t ask for better. They wanted and got Aidan Hutchinson, the Michigan quarterback receiver, who is staying in his birth state: moving from Ann Arbor to Detroit. The safest pick in the draft: He was in contention for the first call. He has made a difference in college several times on the gridiron. He, too, looks good on the Las Vegas stage: cheerful and easygoing, not at all scared by the Lions’ lackluster past. “I want to win”.

Houston picks Louisiana State cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. with the No. 3 pick. So do the New York Jets, authors of a good three-pick draft (the others Ohio State receiver Garrett Wilson and Ohio State defensive end Jermaine Johnson II). Florida State), with the four they call cornerback, Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner. Not just with a great nickname, “gravy,” for fast-food tastes: He didn’t give up touchdowns, in coverage, at the University of Cincinnati. “You can never have enough sauce,” he says. Then the other side of the New York Giants picks Kayvon Thibodeau, a quarterback chaser from Oregon. So, five defensive players take the top five picks.

You have to wait more than two hours into the draft to hear a quarterback’s nomination. On the 20th call, the Pittsburgh Steelers call up Kenny Pickett. From the University of Pittsburgh, coincidentally. He is the post Ben Roethlisberger, with Mitch Trubisky as the (possible) ferryman. He screams loudly, unable to contain his joy, embraced by his loved ones. Malik Willis, Sam Howell, Matt Corrall and Desmond Ridder, the other top quarterbacks, sit and watch. Philadelphia buys super receiver AJ Brown from the Titans for picks 18 and 101. 2,995 receiving yards and 24 touchdowns in three NFL seasons. He found the renewal contract with the Eagles that will give him the money they didn’t offer him in Tennessee: $100 million over four years, $57 guaranteed. The Titans replace him by calling with 18 Treylon Burks. Another designated receiver also moves through the trade. “Hollywood” Brown is sent from Baltimore to Arizona, by Kyler Murray, for the 23rd (and 100th) election. Coach Harbaugh’s team made good shots: 14 Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton, then 25 Iowa center Tyler Linderbaum.

They were other illustrious names potentially destined to be included in some exchange. Instead, they did not move. As well as Nick Foles. For Aaron Rodgers, the reinforcements materialize in Quay Walker, linebacker, and Devonte Wyatt, defensive tackle, both from Georgia, in short, no additions in attack. Without a catcher, the best are already gone. Here we go again…
