We’re officially halfway through the 2021 NFL regular season, and the race for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft already has clear leaders emerging.

The still-winless Detroit Lions are still ahead of the pack, but the 1-8 Houston Texans aren’t far behind. Four more teams have just two wins, so things could still change in a hurry when it comes to the top five slots.

If next year’s draft took place after Week 9 results, here’s what the first-round order would look like (via Tankathon):
