For the first time since 2017, a quarterback likely will not be selected with the No. 1 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. That being said, the first quarterback selected in the '22 Draft probably won't have too long of a wait before they hear their name called by Roger Goodell. 

Of the teams that are currently projected to have a top-five pick in the draft, the Houston Texans are the only ones that are in dire need of a franchise quarterback. The Lions will likely give Jared Goff another year to prove himself in Detroit, while the Jaguars, Jets, Giants and Eagles are currently employing quarterbacks who were recently drafted. Currently projected to have the No. 2 overall pick, Houston will likely have the choice to select between quarterbacks Matt Corral of Ole Miss, Kenny Pickett of Pittsburgh and Malik Willis of Liberty. 

Houston could roll the dice and trade back in the first round. And while the move could backfire, there's a good chance that at least one of the draft's top passers will still be on the board in the event Houston trades out of the No. 2 overall pick. A possible trade partner could be the Panthers, who may decide to pull the plug on the Sam Darnold experiment. And while Taylor Heinicke has played well in Washington, the Football Team may also be in the market to trade up for a quarterback.
