We're more than a week past the Super Bowl and we still have absolutely no clue how the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft will unfold. We'll only get a decently blurry picture after the NFL combine, which begins next week, as the 2022 draft class has more uncertainty at the top than any in recent memory. 

Is Aidan Hutchinson a lock to go No. 2 to the Lions? I don't think so. How about Kayvon Thibodeaux? Where does he land? He seems to be this year's most enigmatic top prospect. 

Keep reading to see who your team takes in this week's mock draft.

The Panthers are probably going to sign someone at quarterback this offseason, right? If they do, and don't have to trade this selection, they should take a receiver to help said quarterback in 2022. London's a beast.
