NFL Draft insider Todd McShay already has us getting excited for 2022. That's because he just dropped his NFL Mock Draft for next season and it's got fans fired up across the country thinking about who their teams might take.

Who's at the top of the list? Per McShay, the Houston Texans will end up selecting Oregon defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux with the top pick. That sure would be something.

It's easy to understand why McShay is such a fan of Thibodeaux and his game. The superstar defensive end has been a machine for Oregon in his first two years on campus. As a freshman in 2019, he posted nine sacks. In last year's shortened season, he added three sacks.

Checking in at 6-5, 250 pounds, he's got massive size and impressive speed off the edge to boot. Could he be the No. 1 pick? Things are looking that way.
