2022 NFL Draft Predictions: Read our team’s thoughts on who will get drafted and when.

NCAA Football: Senior Bowl Practice Vasha Hunt-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL draft begins tonight. The Mountain West has some talent coming out of the conference this year. Expect to hear a number of MWC players get their names called in the draft early and often over the next three days, and quite a few more who could end up as undrafted free agents as well as mini-camp invites. In preparation, our team of writers shared their thoughts as to who will get drafted and when.

The names below were mainly compiled from our All-Star Bowl series in January, with some other names added for good measure. Read below and share your own thoughts in the comments section.
