(USA TODAY Network)

Welcome to the 2022 Ruff Draft, a one-round spectacle that combines two of life’s greatest treasures—football and dogs—and adds a few dashes of NFL draft mania.

To make it work, we took the reins for each NFL franchise’s decision-makers—who have enough on their plate at the moment—and hit the war rooms to sift through the tape, document the metrics and answer the tough questions. And when the proverbial draft dust settled, we submitted a selection for all 32 teams.

Every dog has its day, and for these 32 canines, that day is today.
