How many picks each conference produced in the first round of 2022 NFL draft

The NFL draft is the best time of the year for many football fans around the country.

Las Vegas is hosting the 2022 NFL draft from April 28 to April 30 and the first round on Thursday evening did not disappoint. It was full of trades, wide receivers and pass rushers.

The first five overall selections were defensive players, followed by a slew of offensive tackles and wide receivers taken off the board. It was a disappointing night for quarterbacks, however, as Pittsburgh’s Kenny Pickett was the only one selected in the first round by the Pittsburgh Steelers at No. 20 overall.

In regards to players from Power Five conferences, it was a great night for the SEC and Big Ten, while the Big 12 found themselves on the losing end of the curve with zero selections.

Here’s a look at the conferences that produced at least one pick in the first round of the 2022 NFL draft.
