2023 NFL Mock Draft - 2022 NFL Season Midway Draft

It is halfway through the 2022 NFL Season and it has been one of the wildest seasons in recent memory. Some of the top quarterbacks in the league and their teams are struggling. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers led by Tom Brady, the Green Bay Packers led by Aaron Rodgers, the Denver Broncos led by Russell Wilson and the reigning Super Bowl champions in the Los Angeles Rams led by Matthew Stafford all have below .500% records. Meanwhile, teams like the New York Giants, New York Jets and the Seattle Seahawks are making serious progress towards being a contender for the playoffs this season.

Some teams are already preparing for their run of next season by focusing on a roster restructure this off-season. One of the biggest restructuring processes is the 2023 NFL Draft that starts on April 23, 2023. Teams are already analyzing who the top players are that will be available next April and what positions on the team general managers need to focus on replacing. While there isn't a team that is out of the playoff, most teams are projected to be out than clinch a playoff spot.
