With the 2022 NFL Draft days away and the Cincinnati Bengals picking at No. 31, Stripe Hype had four writers work together on a first-round mock draft. 

The 2022 NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday night and the Cincinnati Bengals are entering the most important draft in franchise history. That’s why we here at Stripe Hype decided to partake in a first-round mock draft.

How it worked was four people held eight selections and drafted as the assigned team’s GM. They simply took the player who they felt best fit the team’s needs. If a team held multiple first-round picks, the GM remained the same for all of those picks.

We each explained our thought process with our selections and other GMs reacted to each pick.

Here are the participating GMs:

  • Leigh Oleszczak (Site Expert)
  • Alex Austin (Contributor)
  • Bennett Snyder (Contributor)
  • Rob Mattox (Contributor)

Without further ado, let’s get to the draft! The Jaguars are on the clock.
