2023 NFL Mock Draft

Updated November 30th

NFL Mock Draft - Houston Texans 1. Houston Texans

Bryce Young, QB, Alabama

After the Michigan game, the OSU QB concern about their QB’s in the passing game has started to creep up. Young might not have ideal size, but he is as cool as they come under pressure and against pro style defense. A long draft season awaits, but this is a pick that can be the foundation of a new era in Houston.

NFL Mock Draft - Chicago Bears 2. Chicago Bears

Will Anderson Jr., DE, Alabama

The Bears are in a predicament with their QB… there is a buzz about Fields’ running ability, but the passing game has to start coming along better. He can’t sustain the ants in the pants style of escaping the pocket and scampering down the field. Regardless, if they stick at 2, this is a very easy decision.

NFL Mock Draft - Detroit Lions 3. Detroit Lions (from LAR)

Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia

The third pick from the Rams? How did this fall into the Lions’ lap? Here they would have to take a long look at QB, but the fact is that the superstar, super-loaded QB draft class never emerged. Goff has been fine at QB and the offense is humming. They just need to keep their OC. Carter is the best player here, and fits a gaping need, but they would also have to take a long look at Murphy.

NFL Mock Draft - Seattle Seahawks 4. Seattle Seahawks (from Denver)

Myles Murphy, DE, Clemson

Well, this year was unexpected. The default for the last decade has been to try to get the Seahawks more help on the offensive line, but they just need to go volume instead of using high picks and hope to find talent that way. For now, they get an immensely talented defensive lineman.

NFL Mock Draft - Carolina Panthers 5. Carolina Panthers

C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State

The Panthers parted ways with their college coach that should have never left college and that found the perfect landing spot on his return. Just solve the QB situation here. They need to spend every possible resource studying the top QBs in this draft and come away with someone they love.

NFL Mock Draft - Philadelphia Eagles 6. Philadelphia Eagles (from New Orleans)

Tyree Wilson, DE, Texas Tech

The Eagles have gone all in and are built to win now. That means when draft time comes, just really focus on the best player available. Young, talented, and cheap edge rushers are always a good choice.

NFL Mock Draft - Arizona Cardinals 7. Arizona Cardinals

Kelee Ringo, CB, Georgia

The Cardinals are a bit of a soap opera with some really old players at some key positions. They have a very pronounced need in the secondary, and being able to get the top prospect here would be excellent.

NFL Mock Draft - Green Bay Packers 8. Green Bay Packers

Jordan Addison, WR, USC

Finally.

NFL Mock Draft - Oakland Raiders 9. Las Vegas Raiders

Peter Skoronski, OT, Northwestern

The Raiders are coming out of a terrible era of drafting and roster management. They have weapons and just need to add talent to the core positions.

NFL Mock Draft - Houston Texans 10. Houston Texans (from Cleveland)

Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State

Don’t overthink this, Houston. With the QB of their future with their first pick, they can come back and work on building an elite offensive line.

NFL Mock Draft - Jackson Jaguars 11. Jacksonville Jaguars

Broderick Jones, OT, Georgia

The Jags are looking better lately, but they have to fix that offensive line. This has to be one of the most obvious picks in the first round… grab the best O-lineman available.

NFL Mock Draft - Pittsburgh Steelers 12. Pittsburgh Steelers

O’Cyrus Torrence, OG, Florida

The Steelers are in a transition stage and have to build around their young, talented QB. They have a top RB, but can’t open up holes for him, and that is due to lack of talent on the interior.

NFL Mock Draft - Detroit Lions 13. Detroit Lions

Joey Porter, Jr., CB, Penn State

Okudah has emerged as a starting CB, but they have to find a reliable companion to him on the other side.

NFL Mock Draft - Indianapolis Colts 14. Indianapolis Colts

Will Levis, QB, Kentucky

The firing of the HC was thoroughly justified… he just wasn’t getting anything out of the QBs. No clue who will be coaching this team next year, but they need to draft a QB and, wait for it… develop said QB.

NFL Mock Draft - Atlanta Falcons 15. Atlanta Falcons

Bryan Bresee, DT, Clemson

This is turning out to be an interesting team. Do they need a QB or don’t they? Think they will stay the course and just see what they have with their veteran and their rooking and just keep building up talent.

NFL Mock Draft - Seattle Seahawks 16. Seattle Seahawks

Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina

Love the idea of the Seahawks being able to roll with Smith and just building around him. This is a fun team to watch emerge and how they played the Wilson situation.

NFL Mock Draft - San Diego Chargers 17. Los Angeles Chargers

Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame

The Chargers year in and year out have a loaded roster. The league has caught up with their defensive scheme, and they have an OC that has no business being an OC and is holding back their electric young QB.

NFL Mock Draft - New England Patriots 18. New England Patriots

Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

The Patriots have two pretty decent QBs and are at that point of the season where they put it all together. Can we just get young Jones a top WR?

NFL Mock Draft - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Andre Carter II, DE/OLB, Army

The Bucs could be in a total rebuild. This pick could be anything, as it is difficult to tell where they will tear down and get free agents, or even if they want to keep any veteran players on board. …Or, perhaps they go one more year with making a run at the Superbowl.

2023 NFL Mock Draft 20. Washington Commanders

Hendon Hooker, QB, Tennessee

A big surprise here, especially since Hooker just hurt his knee. However, The Commanders can ride out this year and next with their feel-good story QB and bring Hooker along at the right pace. He has all the skills to succeed at the next level.

NFL Mock Draft - Baltimore Ravens 21. Baltimore Ravens

Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State

A weapon for Lamar.

NFL Mock Draft - New York Jets 22. New York Jets

Jared Verse, DE, Florida State

The Jets have a superb defense and might have found their QB for at least the rest of the season. This defense would love to be able to just continuously rotate stud defensive linemen without having to bring extra guys on the attack.

NFL Mock Draft - Cincinnati Bengals 23. Cincinnati Bengals

Christian Gonzalez, CB, Oregon

The Bengals are starting to emerge, almost by default, as division favorites. They definitely have some sort of hangover, but survived that fog, and are getting healthy at the right time. CB is a top need.

NFL Mock Draft - New York Giants 24. New York Giants

Jalin Hyatt, WR, Tennessee

Time to start clearing out mistakes from the previous regime.

NFL Mock Draft - Denver Broncos 25. Denver Broncos (from San Francisco)

Lukas Van Ness, DE, Iowa

The Broncos are a disaster far worse than the Texans. At least the Texans are on the proper course for a rebuild with draft picks and salary cap opening up. The Broncos rolled the dice on Wilson and a head coach that was nothing more than a sounding board for Rodgers and not a true OC. Yikes.

NFL Mock Draft - Tennessee Titans 26. Tennessee Titans

Kayshon Boutte, WR, LSU

The Titans play hard and run the ball well. Their QB situation is another story. They traded away an excellent WR, and could use another weapon to help make their offense more dynamic.

NFL Mock Draft -Dallas Cowboys 27. Dallas Cowboys

Antonio Johnson, S, Texas A&M

The Cowboys seem to have found gold with their relatively unknown offensive lineman pick last year, and seem to be in the market for OBJ. That would mean safety moves front and center in terms of needs.

NFL Mock Draft Buffalo Bills 28. Buffalo Bills

Brian Branch, S, Alabama

The Bills have talent all over their defense, but think of what they would look like with a really exceptional third safety? They could really shut down high powered teams like the Chiefs with an uber talented Big-Nickel lineup.

NFL Mock Draft - Minnesota Vikings 29. Minnesota Vikings

John Michael Schmitz, C, Minnesota

The Vikings are a surprise this year, and it appears coaching really held them back the last few years. They need a center and have one available down the road.

NFL Mock Draft - Kansas City Chiefs 30. Kansas City Chiefs

Devon Witherspoon, CB, Illinois

Going to start putting the press on Witherspoon as a first rounder. This guy hits like a Mack truck and can play all over defense.

NFL Mock Draft - Philadelphia Eagles 31. Philadelphia Eagles

Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas

The Eagles are loaded and have extra early draft picks. Enjoy.
