Jacksonville Jaguars clinch the No. 1 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, Detroit Lions have the No. 2 pick

There was a silver lining today for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

They not only got to play spoilers against the Indianapolis Colts, as they knocked them out of the playoffs with a win today. But for the Jaguars, they finish with a 3-14 record and will have the number one overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

The Detroit Lions, who initially had the number one pick for the majority of the season, have the number two overall pick. The Houston Texans have the third overall pick.

The Jaguars get to pick number one again and will have a new head coach to help with that pick, as the Jaguars are looking for their next head coach to replace Urban Meyer and I trim head coach Darrell Bevell.
