Welcome to the 2022 college football season, 

which also marks the start of the NFL Draft's 2023

preparation phase. In terms of what teams require

and what the top prospects can provide, a lot will change,

but it's time to take another look at how things might

pan out (for the time being) on April 27 in Kansas City.

Here is an early forecast of the first-round picks from 1-31,

with the Dolphins forgoing their initial selection, based on Sporting News'

most recent NFL power rankings and forthcoming preseason predictions.
