We are less than a month away from the 2022 NFL Draft. Unlike recent years where there has been a clear quarterback prospect that is sitting atop the class -- like Joe Burrow (2020) or Trevor Lawrence (2021) -- this signal-caller group is lacking top-tier pedigree to make any one of them a slam dunk selection like we've seen in the past. However, that does make for an interesting storyline to follow heading into the draft, specifically regarding which quarterback will hear his name called first.
If you ask Pitt's Kenny Pickett, as Adam Breneman did on a recent episode of "Breneman Shows Up," he believes he'll be the first QB to shake Roger Goodell's hand on stage.
"I think so," Pickett told Breneman, as transcribed by Pro Football Talk. "I think there's a lot of reasons for it. You look at the game now and how it's changing. . . . I'm a mobile guy that [played] in a West Coast pro-style system. I started at a program that was 5-7 the first year I was in.
