The 2022 NFL Draft is starting to heat up. Over the past hour, a plethora of blockbuster trades have already been finalized.

It all started with the Saints trading a trio of picks to the Commanders so they can select Ohio State wide receiver Chris Olave. He should form a nice duo with Michael Thomas.

The Commanders, meanwhile, will now have to wait until pick No. 16 to make their first selection.

Shortly after that trade went down, the Lions traded picks No. 32, 34 and 66 to the Vikings for pick No. 12 and 46. They then used the 12th pick on Alabama wide receiver Jameson Williams. Williams is arguably the best wideout in this year's class, but he's currently recovering from a torn ACL.

Immediately following the Lions' selection, the Eagles and Texans made this trade:

The madness didn't stop there. The Ravens and Cardinals then agreed to a blockbuster deal centered around Marquise Brown and the 23rd overall pick.

As you'd expect, the NFL world is buzzing over these trades.

"This draft is crazy, man," one fan tweeted.

"Thisdraft has been crazy, we aren't even half way through the first round," another fan wrote.

"Thisdraft has been crazy!!!! Now it gets interesting," a third fan wrote. 

We're only halfway through the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Hopefully, the trades keep on coming.
