Round 1 of the 2022 NFL Draft didn't disappoint.

The league's balance of power at wide receiver continues to shift on a near-daily basis, this time courtesy of two major trades and six first-round selections.

While Drake London looks to have the upper hand in terms of projected targets in his new landing spot, the likes of Garrett Wilson, Chris Olave, Treylon Burks and Jameson Williams also figure to start in three-WR sets from Day 1.
