NFL teams will enter the 2022 Draft hoping their picks will become players who will help win Super Bowl titles.

There are teams with multiple first-round picks next week that will need to strike to get back into playoff contention. NFL analyst Brian Baldinger told Fox News Digital in a recent interview that he considers the New York Jets and New York Giants to be two such teams.

“The Jets. I mean there are so many teams that have multiple first-round picks, and they have to hit,” Baldinger said. “The Jets need to get out of the basement they were in and they need to start striking gold on those peaks.

“The New York Giants. They’re on another head coach, another general manager, trying to get in the running. They gotta hit. You’re sitting there at (pick) 5 and 7.”

The Jets haven’t made the playoffs since 2010. New York drafted Zach Wilson with the No. 2 pick last year and need to start developing talent around him to help him succeed. The Jets have the No. 4 and No. 10 picks in the first round.

The Giants have only made the playoffs once since winning the 2012 Super Bowl. New York is Brian Daboll’s No. 4 head coach after the Tom Coughlin era ended after the 2015 season. The Giants have five consecutive losing seasons.

Baldinger told Fox News Digital he sees the Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints as two other teams that need to get back into shape to win, starting with their drafts next week. The Eagles have picks 15 and 18 while the Saints have picks 16 and 19.

“The New Orleans Saints have two first-round picks. The Eagles have two first-round picks. It’s either you want to get out of the basement that some of these teams are in, or you want to get out of the mediocrity like the Eagles and who the Saints are right now. You gotta hit,” the NFL Network analyst said. “And if you can, like Cincinnati did, maybe you can be Cincinnati. And maybe you can go from the basement where they went to a Super Bowl run, whatever they come from. to do.”

The Saints are still trying to sort through their post-Drew Brees and post-Sean Payton era, so hitting big in the draft will be huge. The Eagles have great young talent in quarterback Jalen Hurts and wide receiver Devonta Smith and building around those two will be crucial.
