The first round of the 2022 NFL draft kicks off in just a few hours, which means all of the coverage on TV is non-stop draft talk.

Earlier this morning on First Take, former Dallas Cowboys star Michael Irvin made an appearance to talk about the draft. During the segment, he was asked what the team should do with the No. 24 pick.

He went through a few scenarios, including the team drafting an offensive lineman. However, he's hoping a certain wide receiver from Alabama falls to No. 24.

"But if the heavens open up and some beautiful stars fall and something like a whoo Jameson Williams falls to 24, I don't care about the bad leg right now," he said. "Because that's what I call an [impact player]. If you have that kind of speed put on this kind of team...that man is instant offense for this team."

Unfortunately for Irvin and the Cowboys, Williams likely won't be on the board at No. 24. The former Alabama standout is a likely top-20 pick and could even slip into the top 10 if a team isn't worried about his recent ACL tear.

The first round of the 2022 NFL draft kicks off at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC, ESPN and NFL Network.
