2023 NFL Mock Draft

Updated September 20th

NFL Mock Draft - Houston Texans 1. Houston Texans

Bryce Young, QB, Alabama

Is Davis Mills the long term answer at QB? It is quite possible that the Texans are in the midst of a “long-play” for team building? They didn’t go out and get a new, hip, cutting edge head coach, and haven’t gone all in at QB yet. This could be the perfect year to get a true franchise QB in the draft.

NFL Mock Draft - Seattle Seahawks 2. Seattle Seahawks

C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State

The Seahawks want to play great defense and run the ball. However, they know they need a long term QB as well. Geno is who he is, and that is not a cornerstone QB.

NFL Mock Draft - Carolina Panthers 3. Carolina Panthers

Will Levis, QB, Kentucky

Time is possibly running out for the head coach and front office for the Panthers. Also, doesn’t seem that Baker was the savior that some thought he might be.

NFL Mock Draft - Indianapolis Colts 4. Indianapolis Colts

Tyler Van Dyke, QB, Miami

Who actually is the 4th QB in this draft class? Also, how are the Colts this bad?

NFL Mock Draft - Atlanta Falcons 5. Atlanta Falcons

Will Anderson Jr., DE, Alabama

The QB first tier could be over by the 5th pick, no matter how much hype has been given to this QB class. So far, only two QB’s have graded out as elite for this year’s draft.

NFL Mock Draft - New York Jets 6. New York Jets

Kelee Ringo, CB, Georgia

The Jets would love to be able to rush without sending any extra defenders, and just have their defensive backs stay in man coverage. That takes 2-3 excellent corners.

NFL Mock Draft - Chicago Bears 7. Chicago Bears

Peter Skoronski, OT, Northwestern

The Bears definitely look better. They have many needs, but none more important than on the offensive line.

NFL Mock Draft - Cincinnati Bengals 8. Cincinnati Bengals

Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State

How is the offensive line this bad?

NFL Mock Draft - Houston Texans 9. Houston Texans (from Cleveland)

Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia

Over the next few years the Texans are going to be adding lots of talent through the draft. This could be a very talented roster in a year or two.

2023 NFL Mock Draft 10. Washington Commanders

Jordan Addison, WR, USC

The Commanders need some weapons before they can add another bandaid at the QB position.

NFL Mock Draft - Seattle Seahawks 11. Seattle Seahawks (from Denver)

Bryan Bresee, DT, Clemson

The front four is critical to the Seahawk’s defensive scheme.

NFL Mock Draft - Detroit Lions 12. Detroit Lions

Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina

Fans will be screaming for a QB. However, the talent issue for them is in the secondary. It will be hard for the Lions to draft a QB early if they have a top 5 offense, like they have now.

NFL Mock Draft -Dallas Cowboys 13. Dallas Cowboys

Broderick Jones, OT, Georgia

Just add the best talent on the offensive line no matter what.

NFL Mock Draft - Jackson Jaguars 14. Jacksonville Jaguars

Kayshon Boutte, WR, LSU

Yes, they added a number of wide receivers through free agency last year. Some of those guys are simply placeholders.

NFL Mock Draft - New England Patriots 15. New England Patriots

Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame

This is about not being able to pass on an elite prospect at a position that is highly valued in this offense.

NFL Mock Draft - New York Giants 16. New York Giants

Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State

Time to start clearing out mistakes from the previous regime.

NFL Mock Draft - Miami Dolphins 17. Miami Dolphins (from San Francisco)

Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas

Yikes this would be scary.

NFL Mock Draft - Tennessee Titans 18. Tennessee Titans

Myles Murphy, DE, Clemson

The Titans will probably be making a QB change this season. In doing so, the team could be further going toward being a “play defense, run the ball” team.

NFL Mock Draft - Minnesota Vikings 19. Minnesota Vikings

Jaelyn Duncan, OT, Maryland

If there is a team that is most likely to trade out of the first round, it is the Vikings. They have a new defensive scheme that requires very different players than they have now.

NFL Mock Draft - Pittsburgh Steelers 20. Pittsburgh Steelers

Layden Robinson, OG, Texas A&M

There will be a new QB this year, and they need to protect him.

NFL Mock Draft - Green Bay Packers 21. Green Bay Packers

Josh Downs, WR, North Carolina


NFL Mock Draft - Arizona Cardinals 22. Arizona Cardinals

Jahmyr Gibbs, RB, Alabama

The Cardinals have to become both more traditional and more balanced on offense or they will continue to fail late in the season / playoffs.

NFL Mock Draft - Baltimore Ravens 23. Baltimore Ravens

Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

A weapon for Lamar.

NFL Mock Draft - Philadelphia Eagles 24. Philadelphia Eagles (from New Orleans)

Noah Sewell, LB, Oregon

The NFL’s most loaded roster goes with the best player available.

NFL Mock Draft - Oakland Raiders 25. Las Vegas Raiders

Anton Harrison, OT, Oklahoma

Needs everywhere for the Raiders. Their last first round offensive lineman flamed out early.

NFL Mock Draft - Detroit Lions 26. Detroit Lions (from LAR)

Siaki Ika, DT, Baylor

The Lions want to make their defensive line on par with their offensive line.

NFL Mock Draft - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Ryan Hayes, OT, Michigan

The Bucs could be in a total rebuild. This pick could be anything.

NFL Mock Draft - San Diego Chargers 28. Los Angeles Chargers

Cedric Tillman, WR, Tennessee

The Chargers are loaded. They will need to line up with the Chiefs and that means a stable of WRs.

NFL Mock Draft - Kansas City Chiefs 29. Kansas City Chiefs

Nolan Smith, LB, Georgia

The Chiefs have the weapons on offense, but their defense is what what will make the difference if they are to win more Superbowls.

NFL Mock Draft - Philadelphia Eagles 30. Philadelphia Eagles

Antonio Johnson, S, Texas A&M

They have the corners, and two very good safeties, but a third would make this secondary perhaps the best in the league.

NFL Mock Draft Buffalo Bills 31. Buffalo Bills

O’Cyrus Torrence, OG, Florida

This will purely be the best player available.
