    NFL Mock Draft 2023: Chiefs, Eagles Extend Super Bowl Windows, Packers Trade Aaron Rodgers, Cowboys Lose Tony Pollard

    The Super Bowl is here, but there's still time to sneak in a three-round 2023 NFL Mock Draft. Can the Chiefs and Eagles keep their windows open?

    The Super Bowl is here. That’s cool and all, but I’m more excited by the fact that it means the 2023 NFL Draft is mere months away. Let’s see how the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs can set themselves up for back-to-back appearances on the biggest stage in the sport.

    NFL Mock Draft 2023 | Round 1

    Want to put your favorite franchise on the path toward a Lombardi Trophy? Take the PFN Mock Draft Simulator for a spin!

    1) Houston Texans (From CHI): Bryce Young, QB, Alabama

    Trade: Texans receive pick No. 1, Bears receive picks No. 2, No. 33, and a 2024 third-rounder

    While trading up for the pick you played yourself out of is embarrassing, Houston can’t sit at No. 2 and take whichever QB is available. Bryce Young is the clear QB1 in the class and ushers in a new era of Texans football alongside new head coach DeMeco Ryans.

    2) Chicago Bears (From HOU): Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the Bears trade down twice in the first round. However, losing out on the top blue-chip defenders likely isn’t on their agenda. Taking out positional value, Jalen Carter has an argument as the top player in the draft. He gives Chicago the centerpiece to their defensive rebuild.

    3) Carolina Panthers (From AZ): C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State

    Trade: Panthers receive pick No. 3, Cardinals receive picks No. 9, No. 39, No. 93, and a 2024 first-rounder

    C.J. Stroud is a Frank Reich QB, if I’ve ever seen one. The only issue is, he won’t be available at No. 9, so the Panthers trade up with Arizona, who’s in desperate need of an influx of young talent.

    Carolina is much closer to being a contender than many believe. Stroud will need some time to acclimate to the NFL, as any QB will, but Reich will do his best to give him advantageous looks.

    4) Indianapolis Colts: Will Levis, QB, Kentucky

    With his recent top-five hype, Will Levis‘ … unique … food habits have fallen off the radar. But not here. Never forget that Levis puts mayo in his coffee, eats bananas with the peels on them, and I’m sure there’s more behind the cupboard. If you can put those aside, Levis has the tools to warrant the Colts’ selection.

    5) Seattle Seahawks (From DEN): Will Anderson Jr., EDGE, Alabama

    If Will Anderson Jr. is on the board at fifth overall, the Seahawks are sprinting the card up faster than Tariq Woolen’s 40 time. Anderson is the EDGE they’ve been longing for since the days of Cliff Avril and Bruce Irvin.

    6) Detroit Lions (From LAR): Devon Witherspoon, CB, Illinois

    Devon Witherspoon isn’t the fastest, strongest, or biggest in the 2023 class, but you know what he is? The best. He’s a day-one starter opposite Jeff Okudah, bolstering Detroit’s coverage unit behind a strong defensive line.

    7) Las Vegas Raiders: Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State

    The 2023 offensive tackle class is deep, but based on traits, no one comes near Paris Johnson Jr. He can line up at any position the Raiders desire and keep the pocket clean for whoever starts under center.

    8) Atlanta Falcons: Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson

    Myles Murphy may not be a lock for the top 10 off of his film study, but NFL franchises weigh physical tools so heavily that it doesn’t matter. He’s a solid run defender with the upside to be a difference-making pass rusher in Atlanta.

    9) Arizona Cardinals (From CAR): Christian Gonzalez, CB, Oregon

    The Cardinals trade down and still land a CB1-worthy candidate in Christian Gonzalez. He possesses all the elite traits Witherspoon lacks, and at 6’2″ with sought-after fluidity, he won’t have to wait long to hear his name called.

    10) Philadelphia Eagles (From NO): Tyree Wilson, EDGE, Texas Tech

    Philadelphia’s defensive line is the team’s engine, so adding fuel to the fire is the best way to keep their Super Bowl window open. Tyree Wilson may not have the burst or bend to be a consistent threat around the arc, but he doesn’t have to, given his devasting power and length.

    11) Tennessee Titans: Peter Skoronski, OL, Northwestern

    Peter Skoronski has been my OT1 since the offseason, and he’s done nothing to dissuade me. His shorter arms will be ridiculed throughout the entire pre-draft circuit, but once he hits an NFL field, no one will care. His football IQ, hand usage, and overall technique will endear him to Mike Vrabel and Co.

    12) Houston Texans (From CLE): Jordan Addison, WR, USC

    With Bryce Young in-house, the Texans may turn their attention to upgrading the front seven. But with Jordan Addison still on the board, they gift Young his new No. 1 receiver. Addison is a walking highlight reel, torching defenses over the top or breaking ankles underneath.

    13) Green Bay Packers (From NYJ): Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

    Trade: Packers receive pick 13 and a 2024 second-rounder, Jets receive Aaron Rodgers

    Fresh off a four-day “isolation retreat,” Aaron Rodgers finds himself in New York. He may not remember how he got there, but the Jets hope his presence under center is what they need to get over the hump.

    MORE: NFL News and Rumors — Jets and Raiders in Play for Aaron Rodgers?

    With their newfound draft capital, the Packers present Christian Watson with his new running mate: Quentin Johnston. Two big-bodied vertical threats that can gain yards after the catch? That’s the stuff of defensive coordinators’ nightmares.

    14) New England Patriots: Brian Branch, DB, Alabama

    Brian Branch is a Bill Belichick defensive back: Versatile, heady, and willing to do what’s best for the team. He’s a bit lean to play safety full-time, but he’s a playmaker from the slot with the ability to run any coverage Belichick calls.

    15) Green Bay Packers: Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame

    Is Jordan Love a starting NFL QB? Possibly, but unlike Rodgers’ COVID toe, we need to see it to believe it. Michael Mayer gives him a safety valve over the middle of the field and can help clear lanes in the ground game.

    16) Washington Commanders: Anthony Richardson, QB, Florida

    Anthony Richardson falling to the Commanders may seem unrealistic, but so was saying the military would deploy jets to shoot down a … balloon? Washington finally has a QB that no DC wants to face.

    17) Pittsburgh Steelers: Broderick Jones, OT, Georgia

    Broderick Jones is, as Stephen A. Smith would say, a “baaaaaadddd man.” He looks, moves, and plays like an NFL tackle, and he only started 19 games (15 of which came this season)!

    18) Detroit Lions: Calijah Kancey, DT, Pittsburgh

    Undersized? Sure. Undervalued? Definitely. Underrated? NOT HERE. Calijah Kancey is the best defensive tackle, not named Jalen Carter. His ability to penetrate from the interior with a lightning-quick get-off is uncanny.

    19) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: O’Cyrus Torrence, G, Florida

    The Bucs could attack the defensive line, but after spending high-value picks in back-to-back drafts, they may want to dip into a different well. O’Cyrus Torrence fills the hole left by Ali Marpet’s retirement, establishing a brick wall up front.

    20) Seattle Seahawks: Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State

    Tariq Woolen was a revelation at corner, and Joey Porter Jr. is the ideal complement on the other side. His ball skills accentuate the length/size/speed profile Pete Carroll covets.

    21) Los Angeles Chargers: Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College

    Even if Keenan Allen is still in L.A. next year, this offense has the same voltage as a potato. Zay Flowers is a shock to the system, giving Justin Herbert a dynamic weapon the likes of which he’s never seen before.

    22) Baltimore Ravens: Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State

    The last time we saw a fully healthy Jaxon Smith-Njigba, he dropped 336 yards and three touchdowns on Utah in the Rose Bowl. His hamstring injury will need to be thoroughly vetted, but he’s already an elite route runner with a clear understanding of the position.

    23) Minnesota Vikings: Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina

    Cam Smith is an instinctual corner with quick feet and fluid hips. He was rarely tested at South Carolina, but when he was, he broke up 15 passes and intercepted four more. His prowess in press can unlock coverage looks that Minnesota couldn’t run with their personnel last season.

    24) Jacksonville Jaguars: Clark Phillips III, CB, Utah

    Tyson Campbell impressed last season, but Darious Williams struggled at times in his first year with Jacksonville. Clark Phillips III is the premier slot cornerback in the class and allows Williams to play where he’s most comfortable on the outside.

    25) New York Giants: Trenton Simpson, LB, Clemson

    If a linebacker is going to go Round 1, it’s Trenton Simpson. Not only is he the new-age athlete at the position, but the Giants simply cannot start Jaylon Smith and Jarrad Davis in 2023.

    26) Dallas Cowboys: Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas

    Jerry Jones won’t be able to compose himself if Bijan Robinson is available when the Cowboys are on the clock. Ezekiel Elliott is, to put it kindly, well passed his crop-top-wearing days, and Tony Pollard is a free agent. Robinson is a top-five talent regardless of position, surpassing the ROI expected from a running back.

    27) Buffalo Bills: Cody Mauch, OL, North Dakota State

    It was important Cody Mauch didn’t look out of place at the Senior bowl. But he downright dominated at times, taking it to the Power Five defenders on hand. He can start on the interior out of the gate before taking over either tackle spot for Buffalo.

    28) Cincinnati Bengals: Darnell Wright, OT, Tennessee

    Most NFL-bound college OTs play on the blindside, but Darnell Wright is one of the few that shined at right tackle. Even if La’el Collins returns to form in Cincy, Wright can move to left tackle, allowing Jonah Williams to be the final piece of the puzzle at guard.

    29) New Orleans Saints (From SF via MIA via DEN): Jalin Hyatt, WR, Tennessee

    The Saints are still new to the first-round foray this season, so forgive them if they act up. Jalin Hyatt is by no means a complete receiver, but his game-breaking speed will cause Mardi Gras to erupt every Sunday in New Orleans.

    30) Philadelphia Eagles: Siaki Ika, DT, Baylor

    Jordan Davis and Siaki Ika on the same defensive line? That’s assault with intent to do great bodily harm — a felony worth up to 10 years in prison! Jokes aside, Ika is a rare breed of nose tackle that can actually penetrate the pocket as a pass rusher.

    31) Kansas City Chiefs: Bryan Bresee, DT, Clemson

    What Bryan Bresee has gone through off the field is nothing short of tragic. His younger sister passed due to cancer early in the season, and even though he played on, there’s no telling how it affected him.

    MORE: Top 10 DTs in the 2023 NFL Draft

    But he’s already shown enough flashes to warrant a first-round selection. He can win one-on-one battles and take pressure off Chris Jones on Kansas City’s interior.

    Round 2

    32) Pittsburgh Steelers (From CHI): Kelee Ringo, CB, Georgia

    Most 2023 NFL mock drafts have Kelee Ringo going in the first round, but there’s a chance he tumbles a bit. While he has a linebacker aesthetic at 6’2″ and 210 pounds, with speed to turn and burn, his change of direction and acceleration concern me.

    33) Chicago Bears (From HOU): Anton Harrison, OT, Oklahoma

    Anton Harrison is one-half of Oklahoma’s remarkable OT duo. He can mirror nearly every edge rusher with his foot speed and has three years of significant reps as a 21-year-old rookie.

    34) Arizona Cardinals: Lukas Van Ness, EDGE, Iowa

    Lukas Van Ness has a first-round ceiling, but he never started for Iowa and has fewer than 1,000 career snaps. Nevertheless, he possesses possibly the deadliest bull rush this cycle.

    35) Indianapolis Colts: Isaiah Foskey, EDGE, Notre Dame

    Three words describe Isaiah Foskey‘s play style: power, length, and explosiveness. He’s demonstrated impressive hand usage, but consistency will be key to his NFL development.

    36) Los Angeles Rams: BJ Ojulari, EDGE, LSU

    BJ Ojulari is a better prospect than his brother and Giants EDGE Azeez Ojulari. He exploits offensive tackles with pure speed, but adding a power element to his arsenal could take his game to new heights.

    37) Seattle Seahawks (From DEN): John Michael Schmitz, OL, Minnesota

    Geno Smith showed enough to be the Seahawks’ starter in 2023, but they’ll need to keep him upright. John Michael Schmitz is a veteran from the center position but has the athletic ability to kick out to guard if necessary. He’s a perfect fit for Seattle’s heavy zone-blocking scheme.

    38) Las Vegas Raiders: Deonte Banks, CB, Maryland

    This cornerback class is loaded. Deonte Banks is a top 50 player that could fall below that simply due to an overabundance of talent at the position. He’s skilled in press at 6’2″, 200 pounds, and has noticeable body control downfield.

    39) Arizona Cardinals (From CAR): Jahmyr Gibbs, RB, Alabama

    A quarterback’s best friend, Jahmyr Gibbs can make Kyler Murray’s life easier out of the gate. He’s an Alvin Kamara-esque prospect, proficient as a runner and receiver out of the backfield.

    40) New Orleans Saints: Antonio Johnson, DB, Texas A&M

    Tyrann Mathieu is getting long in the tooth, and Marcus Maye hasn’t played a full season since 2020. Antonio Johnson not only provides long-term security at the position, but the 6’3″ defender can also start in the slot.

    41) Tennessee Titans: Nolan Smith, EDGE, Georgia

    I don’t know where the NFL will be on Nolan Smith. He checks all the physical boxes, exploding downhill and laterally. But the Georgia EDGE is a bit raw as a pressure generator.

    42) Cleveland Browns: Will McDonald IV, EDGE, Iowa State

    Despite playing out of position at Iowa State, Will McDonald IV is one of the best pure pass rushers in the class. He can bend and burst around the edge with the best of them, boasting a stellar spin move.

    43) New York Jets: Jaelyn Duncan, OT, Maryland

    Jaelyn Duncan can play guard or tackle, but his maximum output is as a starting blindside protector. The Jets will need to polish his technique and decision-making, but the tools are there.

    44) Atlanta Falcons: Tyrique Stevenson, CB, Miami (FL)

    A long and athletic corner, Tyrique Stevenson has bushels of potential. Still, he has to work on the finer points of the position.

    45) Green Bay Packers: Jammie Robinson, S, Florida State

    Jammie Robinson is one of the most complete safeties in the 2023 NFL Draft, and he proved it at the Senior Bowl. He’s a straightforward projection to the NFL with 600+ snaps in the box, slot, and deep safety under his belt.

    46) New England Patriots: Josh Downs, WR, North Carolina

    Want Zay Flowers without needing to spend Round 1 capital? Josh Downs is your guy. He’s similarly electric from the slot, divorcing defenders at the top of routes and blazing past them on vertical routes.

    47) Washington Commanders: Emmanuel Forbes, CB, Mississippi State

    There’s ball production, and there’s Emmanuel Forbes‘ ball production. Owner of the most pick-sixes in college football history (six), Forbes has recorded 14 INTs and 17 PBUs in his career.

    48) Detroit Lions: Drew Sanders, LB, Arkansas

    An edge rusher-turned-off-ball-linebacker, Drew Sanders needs a scheme that will utilize his pass-rushing prowess. He can develop further as a run defender, but his range and fluidity buoy an exciting ceiling.

    49) Pittsburgh Steelers: Keion White, EDGE, Georgia Tech

    If Keion White gets into your chest off the ball, you might as well bring him to the ground with you. He can also move for a 6’4″ and 280-pound defensive lineman which should translate well to a three-down role.

    50) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Tanner McKee, QB, Stanford

    Stanford’s offense didn’t do Tanner McKee any favors, but he routinely exhibited superb ball placement and anticipation. He’s a quick processor and can read defenses better than most in the class.

    51) Miami Dolphins: Wanya Morris, OT, Oklahoma

    A quiet winner from the Senior Bowl, Wanya Morris displayed excellent pass sets with quick feet and well-timed punches. He was reactive and never gave up on a rep, working to re-anchor whenever needed.

    52) Seattle Seahawks: A.T. Perry, WR, Wake Forest

    A.T. Perry moves incredibly well for a 6’3″ receiver. He was seemingly unguardable at the Shrine Bowl, showcasing his mixture of long speed and body control.

    53) Chicago Bears (From BAL): Rashee Rice, WR, SMU

    Darnell Mooney needs reinforcements in the receiving corps, and Rashee Rice answers the call. He consistently fights to restack downfield and has the size/speed build teams covet on the outside.

    54) Los Angeles Chargers: Matthew Bergeron, OT, Syracuse

    The Chargers nailed their selection of Rashawn Slater a couple of years ago. Now it’s time to address right tackle. Matthew Bergeron has the patience and foot quickness to hold up against some of the speedier pass rushers who aim to press the outside track.

    55) Detroit Lions (From MIN): Darnell Washington, TE, Georgia

    Darnell Washington might end up a first-round pick when all is said and done. He’s already an outstanding blocker and has tremendous size at 6’7″ and 270 pounds. He’ll need work as a receiver, but his tape has flashes of contested catch and YAC ability.

    56) Jacksonville Jaguars: Steve Avila, OL, TCU

    Interior linemen don’t often go in the first two days of the draft, but Steve Avila made himself money at the Senior Bowl. He’s a big-bodied plotter that can start at either guard or center early on.

    57) New York Giants: Kayshon Boutte, WR, LSU

    Kayshon Boutte has the tools of a first-rounder, but he’ll likely fall much further due to the ambiguity of his final season. His inclusion in the second round of this 2023 NFL Mock Draft is solely based on his upside. He’s a big-play threat in the open field that can pressure defenses vertically.

    58) Dallas Cowboys: Keeanu Benton, DT, Wisconsin

    Keeanu Benton is already a robust run defender, thanks to his raw power. But with violent and energetic hands, he flashed potential as a pass rusher from the interior, especially in Mobile.

    59) Buffalo Bills: Nathaniel Dell, WR, Houston

    Although he’s a diminutive receiver, Nathaniel Dell lives up to his nickname “tank” due to his explosiveness. He’s a natural separator that’s electric in and out of his breaks.

    60) Cincinnati Bengals: Luke Musgrave, TE, Oregon State

    The Bengals could use a potent weapon at tight end, with defenses keying on Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins. Luke Musgrave fits the bill, owning one of the best receiving skill sets at the position.

    61) Carolina Panthers (From SF): Eli Ricks, CB, Alabama

    Eli Ricks is a polarizing player, but when he’s been on the field, he’s excelled — both at LSU and Alabama. Teams will test him opposite Jaycee Horn, but they’ll quickly learn that’s not the best idea.

    62) Philadelphia Eagles: Kendre Miller, RB, TCU

    Despite his success this season, the Eagles would be wise to let Miles Sanders walk and replace him with an RB in a loaded class. Kendre Miller is the type of back the Eagles can rely upon next to Jalen Hurts in the backfield.

    63) Kansas City Chiefs: Felix Anudike-Uzomah, EDGE, Kansas State

    With George Karlaftis bull rushing off one edge, Felix Anudike-Uzomah can finish at the QB with his flexibility and bend on the other side.

    Round 3

    64) Chicago Bears: Joe Tippmann, C, Wisconsin

    Power, athleticism, build, and experience. Check, check, check, and check. Don’t overthink it, Chicago; draft Joe Tippmann and succeed.

    65) Houston Texans: Jack Campbell, LB, Iowa

    There aren’t many “true” linebackers in the 2023 NFL Draft, but Jack Campbell is the best of them. Simply put, he has one of the highest floors in the class.

    66) Arizona Cardinals: Andrew Vorhees, OL, USC

    Rebuilding the tranches is a must for Arizona, especially if they want Kyler Murray to stay on the field. Andrew Vorhees is the prototype on the interior, possessing a firm anchor.

    67) Denver Broncos (From IND): Derick Hall, EDGE, Auburn

    With a coveted blend of production and traits, Derick Hall, would supplement an already-dangerous Broncos defense with another pass rusher to develop on the edge.

    68) Denver Broncos: Darius Rush, CB, South Carolina

    One of the most substantial risers from the Senior Bowl, Darius Rush ushers in a new “No Fly Zone” in Denver across from Patrick Surtain.

    69) Los Angeles Rams: Dawand Jones, OT, Ohio State

    The Rams need to draft a tackle with one of their Day 2 picks. In this 2023 NFL Mock Draft, they take Dawand Jones, the largest man in the class: 6’8″, 375 pounds, 36 5/8″ arms.

    70) Las Vegas Raiders: Moro Ojomo, DT, Texas

    With overwhelming power, Moro Ojomo displaced blockers all week at the Shrine Bowl. His blend of length, leverage, and first-step quickness poses a significant issue for opposing linemen.

    71) Las Vegas Raiders (From NO): Andre Carter II, EDGE, Army

    Trade: Raiders receive pick No. 71, 2024 fifth-rounder, Saints receive QB Derek Carr

    With the pick they receive for Derek Carr, the Raiders continue investing in the defensive line. Andre Carter II is equipped with intriguing length and speed, but he’ll need some time in an NFL weight room.

    72) Tennessee Titans: Cedric Tillman, WR, Tennessee

    If the Titans want to truly evaluate Malik Willis, they need to give him some weapons. Cedric Tillman has the size, ball skills, and body control to complement Treylon Burks outside.

    73) Houston Texans (From CLE): Adetomiwa Adebawore, DL, Northwestern

    Proportional length. Natural leverage. Elite explosiveness. Inside/outside versatility. What isn’t there to like about Adetomiwa Adebawore?

    74) New York Jets: JL Skinner, S, Boise State

    Standing 6’4″ and 211 pounds, JL Skinner is easily one of the most oversized safeties in the class. He has the length and play strength to be a menace over the middle of the field.

    75) Atlanta Falcons: Marvin Mims, WR, Oklahoma

    One of my guys in the 2023 NFL Draft, Marvin Mims pairs his dynamism with Drake London’s large frame and Kyle Pitts’ receiving prowess.

    76) New England Patriots (From CAR): Tuli Tuipulotu, DL, USC

    There aren’t many 6’4″ and 290-pound defenders that can thrive on the edge, but that’s what Tuli Tuipulotu did at USC.

    77) Miami Dolphins (From NE): Devon Achane, RB, Texas A&M

    Speed. The Dolphins have it in Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, and Mike McDaniel would definitely love some more in the backfield. Enter Devon Achane.

    78) Green Bay Packers: Isaiah McGuire, EDGE, Missouri

    A stout run defender and growing pass rusher, Isaiah McGuire has a high floor with traits that highlight his untapped potential.

    79) Indianapolis Colts (From WSH): Blake Freeland, OT, BYU

    Blake Freeland had his ups and downs at the Senior Bowl, but his length/athleticism combination won’t last too long on the board come April.

    80) Pittsburgh Steelers: Andrei Iosivas, WR, Princeton

    The Steelers don’t have a genuine deep threat on their roster. Andrei Iosivas and his track speed represent the perfect remedy.

    81) Detroit Lions: Xavier Hutchinson, WR, Iowa State

    Xavier Hutchinson doesn’t have a household name like others in the class, but he put on a show at the Senior Bowl.

    82) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Kyu Blu Kelly, CB, Stanford

    Jamel Dean and Sean Murphy-Bunting are slated to be free agents, and Kyu Blu Kelly can step in and yield reliable play.

    83) Seattle Seahawks: Daiyan Henley, LB, Washington State

    Neither Jordyn Brooks nor Cody Barton is adept in coverage, so selecting a linebacker that can cover like Daiyan Henley is a must.

    84) Miami Dolphins: Garrett Williams, CB, Syracuse

    Xavien Howard and Byron Jones are only getting older … and more expensive. Garrett Williams injects youth and physicality into Miami’s CB room.

    85) Los Angeles Chargers: Mike Morris, EDGE, Michigan

    A jumbo EDGE, Mike Morris can help shore up the Chargers’ run defense woes.

    86) Baltimore Ravens: Julius Brents, CB, Kansas State

    Long, athletic corners are the new rage, and Julius Brents fits the mold on the outside.

    87) Minnesota Vikings: Parker Washington, WR, Penn State

    Parker Washington doesn’t garner enough attention. He’s a YAC threat with sure hands from the slot and has kick/punt return ability.

    88) Jacksonville Jaguars: Mazi Smith, DT, Michigan

    Mazi Smith, the No. 1 player on Bruce Feldman’s Freaks List, has all the tools to be a dominant defensive tackle. It will be up to Jacksonville to unlock his potential.

    89) New York Giants: Atonio Mafi, G, UCLA

    One of the biggest risers from the all-star circuit, Atonio Mafi provides long-term interior stability for the Giants.

    90) Dallas Cowboys: BJ Thompson, EDGE, Stephen F. Austin

    Pairing one athletic freak with another, BJ Thompson can be a high-upside edge rusher alongside Micah Parsons.

    91) Buffalo Bills: Sydney Brown, S, Illinois

    Sydney Brown plays like a sports car with a brick on the gas pedal. He’s extremely experienced (3,000+ career snaps) and is rarely out of position.

    92) Cincinnati Bengals: Jordan Battle, S, Alabama

    Brian Branch gets all the love in the Alabama secondary, but Jordan Battle was a potential first-rounder just last cycle.

    93) Arizona Cardinals (From SF via CAR): Kobie Turner, DT, Wake Forest

    Interior penetrators are extremely valuable, and Kobie Turner can be an early impact-maker for the Cardinals.

    94) Philadelphia Eagles: Jaylon Jones, CB, Texas A&M

    Parker Washington fits very well as a big slot between A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith.

    95) Kansas City Chiefs: Tyler Scott, WR, Cincinnati

    Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes have gotten the most out of JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, but Tyler Scott is a legitimate speed demon.

    96) Arizona Cardinals: Mark Evans II, OL, Arkansas Pine-Bluff

    During this semi-rebuild, the Cardinals must address the offensive line. Mark Evans II gives them tackle/guard flexibility from Day 1.

    97) Washington Commanders: Isaiah Land, EDGE, Florida A&M

    At 226 pounds, Isaiah Land may not be able to stay on the edge full-time in the NFL. Still, he’s an effective pass rusher with the tools to play off-ball.

    98) Cleveland Browns: Trey Palmer, WR, Nebraska

    The Browns need to add juice to their receiving corps. Trey Palmer brings that and then some as a slot/Z option.

    99) San Francisco 49ers: McClendon Curtis, G, Chattanooga

    At 6’5″ with 35″ arms, McClendon Curtis is a stout guard prospect with the ability to kick out to tackle if needed.

    100) San Francisco 49ers: Karl Brooks, DL, Bowling Green

    Karl Brooks is sudden and violent with his hands, offering alignment versatility along the defensive line.

    101) San Francisco 49ers: Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson, CB, TCU

    5’7″ and 175 pounds isn’t exactly the prototypical NFL cornerback build. Yet, Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson has made a name for himself as a gnat in coverage.

    102) New York Giants (From KC): Christopher Smith, S, Georgia

    Christopher Smith has average arm length attached to a slim frame, but he’s a proven playmaker in the deep third with slot versatility.
