  • Here are the 10 youngest NFL players in 2022.
  • Nick Cross (20 years old entering Week 1) is the youngest.

Everyone knows Tom Brady leads the list of oldest NFL players for 2022 at age 45, but what about the youngest?

Safety Nick Cross of the Indianapolis Colts is the youngest, as he wasn’t even able to legally drink prior to Week 1. His Colts are a popular pick in NFL betting to win the Super Bowl.

All of the top 10 youngest players in the league weren’t even born when Brady took his first regular-season NFL snap (Thanksgiving of 2000).

Below are the 10 youngest NFL players, with their ages as of Week 1 of the 2022 season.
