2022 NFL Mock Draft 1.0: Giants, Jets address multiple needs in top 10



It’s hard to believe that there are only two weeks remaining in the 2021 NFL regular season.
While the playoff picture still remains quite murky, the top of the board for the 2022 NFL Draft has taken shape — and there is a silver lining of sorts if you’re a football fan in the New York City area. 
Both the Giants and Jets have two picks in the top 10 this season, which is a testament to just how bad they’ve been this season and to some good wheeling and dealing from the front office. 
There are a plethora of needs amongst both rosters, but offensive line help should be at the top of both teams’ wish lists. The Jets need more protection for Zach Wilson while the Giants have another opportunity to make soon-to-be-gone GM Dave Gettleman’s initial wish of building up a solid line a reality.
