The 2022 NFL Draft is rapidly approaching. As each day goes by we seem to have a better understanding of which prospects are picking up momentum to be selected. At the same time, it grows more and more difficult to try to project all 32 first-round picks with any degree of accuracy.Here's my latest 2022 NFL mock draft for Round 1.1. Jacksonville Jaguars - Travon Walker (DE) - After blowing away the combine, Walker's stock is on the rise. So much so that Doug Pederson can take a chance on Walker's immense upside and choose to fortify his offensive line later in a class that is relatively deep at tackle.2. Detroit Lions -  Aiden Hutchinson (DE) - The Lions are building from the trenches and reinforcing a defensive that was 31st in passing yards per attempt and 26th in sack rate is a top priority. Hutchinson is widely considered the safest prospect in this draft and gives Dan Campbell the type of three-down pass rusher he covets.3. Houston Texans - Evan Neal (OT) - Houston has the least talented roster in football and has needs at every position. The offensive line has been problematic for the franchise for many years and Neal projects to be an All-Pro left tackle. Neal can fill in anywhere this season and would step right in for current starter Laremy Tunsil if the club were to move on from Tunsil's high price tag after the season.4. New York Jets - Ahmad Gardner (CB) - It is rare to see a cornerback be drafted in the top-5 but 'Sauce" is a dynamic player who has the size and skills to be a shutdown corner for the next decade. Gardner is the type of rare talent that can immediately upgrade an entire secondary and the Jets were dead last in yards and points allowed in 2021.5. New York Giants ....
