Beginning of the show: Georgia quarterback JT Daniels will be first pick in the 2022 NFL draft according to FOX Sports Jason McIntyre, who recently projected how next year’s selections will play out in a mock draft.

I’ll compare a projected stat line for Daniels to other recent first-round quarterbacks on today’s show to establish some benchmarks Daniels is likely to need to achieve to make good on McIntyre’s prediction.
