Biggest steals from the 2022 NFL draft

Just like any other year, the 2022 NFL draft is sure to give us plenty of players who failed to live up to their high draft slot, while others make us all wonder how they ended up coming off the board so late.

Whether it’s a top-five player who fell out of the top 10, a top-10 player who nearly tumbled out of the first round, Day 2 picks that should have been first-rounders, or Day 3 bargains who never should have waited that long, here are our picks for the biggest steals of this year’s draft:
