The 2022 NFL draft is finally here. The first round begins Thursday night in Las Vegas with the host team — the Raiders — sitting out the first two rounds after trading multiple draft choices for former Green Bay wide receiver Davante Adams.

The Washington Commanders hold the No. 11 overall selection. Overall, Washington has six picks in the 2022 draft and is without selections in the third and fifth rounds. The Commanders have two seventh-round choices.

Washington traded its third-round selection in this year’s draft in the trade for Carson Wentz.

Will the Commanders remain at No. 11 and select a wide receiver? Or will they go defense for the sixth consecutive season?

Here’s everything you need to know in order to catch the first round of the draft.
