The 2022 NFL draft is just days away from kicking off in Las Vegas. By now every team should know what positions they will target to improve their team.
Rivers McCown, Scott Spratt, Bryan Knowles, Vince Verhei, Cale Clinton, Robert Weintraub, J.P. Acosta and Mike Tanier from Football Outsiders take a look at the biggest need positions for all 32 teams going into Thursday. We evaluated each team and listed its biggest need, a lesser-priority need and a position where there's no need at all. Plus, we name prospects that might make good fits to fill each need and could be a team target.
Many of the descriptions reference Football Outsiders stats which are explained here. The most common is DVOA, or Defense-adjusted Value Over Average, which compares every play of the NFL season to a league average and adjusts based on situation and opponent. You'll also see a lot of DYAR (Defense-adjusted Yards Above Replacement), which transforms DVOA into a total stat rather than a rate stat.
Here is our complete team guide to the 2022 NFL draft, starting with the NFC East.
