Here’s one place for Cincinnati Bengals fans to keep up to date with all of the picks and trades made with our 2022 NFL Draft tracker. 

The reigning AFC champion Cincinnati Bengals hold the No. 31 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft and have several different directions they can go in with the late first-round selection. It’ll be a new experience for the stripes, as they are starting the latest they’ve ever drafted in the first round.

The past two years the Bengals have held picks in the top five selections, taking Joe Burrow first overall in 2020 and grabbing Ja’Marr Chase fifth overall last year. Both guys have played a major role in why this team is in yet another position to contend in 2022.

How many total picks are in the 2022 NFL Draft?

The draft consists of seven rounds and a total of 262 picks. The first round is held on Thursday, April 28, the second and third rounds are on Friday, April 29 and the final four rounds take place on Saturday, April 30.

How much time between picks in each round of the 2022 NFL Draft?

The different rounds of the draft dictate how much time teams have to make their selection. In the first round, teams have 10 minutes to decide who they want to add to their roster. Round 2 gives each team seven minutes to make their pick. In the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth rounds, organizations get five minutes to figure out their draft prospect. The final round only gives teams four minutes.

What are compensatory picks in the NFL Draft?

When teams lose players in free agency, they’re given what are called “compensatory picks”. These picks allow teams extra picks to help them compensate for losing big-time playmakers.

Per league rules“the value of the compensatory free agents gained or lost by each team is totaled, and a team is awarded picks of equal value to the net loss of compensatory free agents, up to a maximum of four.”

What NFL team has the most picks in the 2022 NFL Draft?

Two teams have 12 picks in the upcoming NFL Draft and they’re two teams that are in very different situations. No one is surprised to hear that the Jaguars hold the most picks in the draft considering that they were the worst team in the league last year.

What might come as more of a surprise is that the Chiefs are also entering the draft with 12 picks. Trading Tyreek Hill had a big help in getting KC that many picks but it wouldn’t be shocking if Kansas City traded several of their picks away for a key player.

What are undrafted free agents and when can they be signed?

When the seven rounds of the draft wrap up, there are still players who didn’t hear their names called and are waiting for a chance to make it with an NFL team. Once the draft is over, anyone who didn’t get drafted is free to sign with whoever. They’re known as “undrafted free agents” or UDFAs.
