This is Christmas and the Super Bowl all in one. The 2022 NFL Draft is finally here and the Jacksonville Jaguars (again) have the first overall pick.
Last year, it was very obvious the pick would be Trevor Lawrence. I mean, the city changed its colors to purple and orange all over the city and its bridges, for God’s sake. But what will they do this year when there’s no real consensus?
We’re about to find out!
We’ll be updating this live blog all day (and running live blogs every day of the draft) and packing in every rumor, piece of news, and mention of the Jaguars.
12:53 AM: Last update, we promise. So, who won the trade last night? Looks like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if you use Jimmy Johnson’s old draft scoring card.

10:55 PM: TRADE UP ALERT!
8:42 PM: If Trent Baalke trades back up into the first round to get Tyler Linderbaum or Treylon Burks, I will have no choice but to stan.

2:08 PM: The first of (hopefully) many good decisions over the next few days. Locking Josh Allen in was a no-brainer for the Jaguars.
12:32 PM: What?
As expected, the @Giants are not picking up QB Daniel Jones' fifth year option, according to a source with knowledge of the team's plans. But if he plays well, obviously, chance to cash in with the franchise tag.— Judy Battista (@judybattista) April 28, 2022
