2022 NFL draft: Every team’s biggest steal

Every year, winning the NFL draft is about balancing need with value, filling the biggest holes on your roster without reaching for lesser prospects, and taking advantage when you have the chance to grab talented players later than expected.

Each of the league’s 32 teams landed at least one potential bargain in the 2022 NFL draft, and some of them even came at the game’s most important position, a rarity in today’s landscape.

While they still have their entire NFL careers ahead of them, based on how we valued the 2022 class, here are our picks for the biggest steal for every team in this year’s draft:
