2023 NFL Mock Draft 1.0

It’s mock draft season for American Sports. This is a talented draft class with a ton of interesting names, so here’s my vision of the draft at this point in the season.

1. Houston Texans – Bryce Young, QB, Alabama

Critics talk about Young’s size, but there’s no denying his unreal playmaking ability. He carried this year’s Alabama offense to success, and I believe he’s a true driver of a quarterback.

2. Chicago Bears – Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia

Carter’s movement skills as a defensive tackle are incredible. He has the potential to be an Aaron Donald-type wrecker.

3. Seattle Seahawks (from Denver Broncos) – Will Anderson Jr., EDGE, Alabama

The Seahawks have had surprising success with Geno Smith, so why not build the team up around him? Anderson is another special talent on the defensive end.

4. Arizona Cardinals – Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson

At 6’5″, 275 lbs, Murphy is a physical specimen. He has the makeup of a star defensive end, and the Cardinals could use that kind of guy.

5. Indianapolis Colts – Will Levis, QB, Kentucky

If you look at the numbers, you won’t be impressed by Levis, but he played in a subpar Kentucky offense. He has a massive arm and is athletic enough to be a threat on the ground.

6. Atlanta Falcons – Kelee Ringo, CB, Georgia

Ringo has the size and speed of a top corner. A CB duo of A.J. Terrell and Ringo would be lethal.

7. Detroit Lions (from LA Rams) – Bryan Bresee, DT, Clemson

Bresee is versatile and athletic, with pass-rush skills that aren’t typical of a tackle. Since Jared Goff seems to have a secure spot on this squad, they should build their defense in this upcoming draft.

8. Carolina Panthers – C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State

In terms of accuracy, you can’t get much better than Stroud. However, he needs to show out during this CFP, as he hasn’t propelled OSU over the hump up to this point.

9. Las Vegas Raiders – Peter Skoronski, OT, Northwestern

The Raiders’ offensive line is a weak point of the squad, and Skoronski would be a dream come true. He’s a stellar pass-blocker that could slide in for Las Vegas right away.

10. Philadelphia Eagles (from New Orleans Saints) – Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas

Robinson is the best running back prospect I’ve seen since Saquon Barkley. He’s dynamic in every way and would elevate the Eagles’ offense to unstoppable status.

11. Houston Texans (from Cleveland Browns) – Tyree Wilson, EDGE, Texas Tech

12. Seattle Seahawks – Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina

13. Tennessee Titans – Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

14. New England Patriots – Jordan Addison, WR, USC

15. New York Jets – Brian Branch, S, Alabama

16. Pittsburgh Steelers – Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State

17. Green Bay Packers – Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame

18. Detroit Lions – Christian Gonzalez, CB, Oregon

19. Jacksonville Jaguars – Antonio Johnson, S, Texas A&M

20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Broderick Jones, OT, Georgia

21. Washington Commanders – Trenton Simpson, LB, Clemson

22. Miami Dolphins – Forfeited

23. New York Giants – Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State

24. Los Angeles Chargers – Jalin Hyatt, WR, Tennessee

25. Baltimore Ravens – Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Ohio State

26. Denver Broncos (from San Francisco 49ers) – Nolan Smith, EDGE, Georgia

27. Dallas Cowboys – Clark Phillips III, CB, Utah

28. Cincinnati Bengals – Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State

29. Kansas City Chiefs – Anton Harrison, OT, Oklahoma

30. Minnesota Vikings – Garrett Williams, CB, Syracuse

31. Buffalo Bills – Jahmyr Gibbs, RB, Alabama

32. Philadelphia Eagles – B.J. Ojulari, EDGE, LSU
