New York Giants rookie Kayvon Thibodeaux is already dealing with an injury as he prepares for his first NFL season
The New York Giants’ top pick in the 2022 NFL draft is already dealing with an injury as he prepares for his rookie season.
Kayvon Thibodeaux, the No. 5 overall pick in this year’s draft, is dealing with a “tweaked hip,” according to The Athletic’s Dan Duggan.
A dominant pass rusher who is expected to make an immediate and significant impact for the Giants’ Thibodeaux was also limited by injury for much of his final season at Oregon. It didn’t seem to impact his draft stock much, though he was once touted as a potential lock for the No. 1 overall pick.
For the second straight year, there won’t be an NFL supplemental draft
The NFL will not hold a supplemental draft in 2022, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
The supplemental draft gives college players who have had changes in their eligibility since the NFL draft have an opportunity to be selected. Every year, the league is able to choose whether or not to old one, Pelissero reports.
This is the second straight year in which the NFL will not hold a supplemental draft. The last player selected in a supplemental draft was Washington State safety Jalen Thompson, who was selected in the fifth round by the Arizona Cardinals.
Kenny Pickett has signed his rookie deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers, making him the final first-round pick to get under contract
The entire first-round class of the 2022 NFL draft is now under contract.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett, the No. 20 overall pick and only passer selected in this year’s first round, was the last of the top 32 picks to sign his rookie deal (per ESPN’s Adam Schefter).
The rookie wage scale under the current collective bargaining agreement has made this process a bit more simple and streamlined in recent years, though there are still some quirks every now and then.
With training camps still a month away, none of this year’s first-round picks will be holding out.
The NFL Scouting Combine won’t be changing cities for now, as the league is keeping the event in Indianapolis for the next two years
Much to the joy of pretty much anyone who works the event, the NFL Scouting Combine won’t be changing cities anytime soon.
The league announced Tuesday morning that the predraft event will remain in Indianapolis for at least the next two years.
One of the most important events on the NFL’s annual predraft calendar, the combine has been held in Indy since 1987, with many people within the industry lauding its location for many different reasons.
After contemplating a move for the event, much like the draft itself has traveled to different cities after spending years in New York, it looks like the combine will be staying home for a little while longer.
