Mellor’s 2023 NFL Mock Draft: C.J. Stroud, Will Levis, Bryce Young All Go in the Top 5

    In our latest 2023 NFL Mock Draft, three quarterbacks -- C.J. Stroud, Will Levis, and Bryce Young -- are all drafted within the first five picks.

    The 2023 NFL Draft will be here before you know it, and mock drafts will be flying off the shelves. This time around, however, we changed things up as we’ve got a great idea of just who the top prospects are and where they might fit in the NFL. We’ve also shaken up the draft order a bit in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft.

    2023 NFL Mock Draft | Round 1

    For the first time this mock draft season, we’re using the actual, current 2023 NFL Draft order as of Saturday, October 29. You’ll notice some major changes to our previous mock drafts, and some specific callouts are both New York teams selecting in the 20s, as this draft order was set as if the season were to end today.

    These selections were run as if I was the GM of all 32 NFL teams. Run your own simulation as the GM of your favorite team with the Pro Football Network Mock Draft Simulator.

    1) Detroit Lions: C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State

    The Detroit Lions need a resurgence of youth at the quarterback position, and if the season ended today, they’d have their pick of the litter. That pick is C.J. Stroud in this mock draft, as Stroud has the mental makeup and arm talent as well as every intangible you’d desire from a franchise signal-caller.

    Put your fears of “just another Ohio State quarterback” away, as Stroud squashes all his predecessors with his NFL readiness. He’s an anticipatory thrower with ample arm strength and some of the best on-platform throwing ability we’ve seen in some time. He’ll pick up the Lions’ playbook quickly and improve the roster in a heartbeat.

    2) Houston Texans: Will Anderson Jr., EDGE, Alabama

    The best player available heads to the roster with the biggest need for talent. Will Anderson Jr. joins the Houston Texans with one of their two top-five selections. They can’t go wrong with this pick, but selecting the best player available is the way to go.

    Anderson rushes the passer from all over the field and has shown a knack for making big plays in big-time spots. He’s athletic, strong, and fast. He’s a lethal combination that gives Houston’s defense an identity.

    3) Carolina Panthers: Will Levis, QB, Kentucky

    The prototypical quarterback from the SEC, and it’s not Bryce Young. In fact, Will Levis heads to the Carolina Panthers with the third-overall pick as the franchise needs a complete rebuild.

    Who better to build your franchise around than a bright and up-and-coming potential superstar with elite traits and a powerful arm? Levis is all of those and is still continuing to ascend.

    4) Philadelphia Eagles (from NO): Jordan Addison, WR, USC

    The top receiver off the board heads to the Philadelphia Eagles, as Jordan Addison returns to the east coast. Addison has some of the best natural separation in all of college football, and when that’s paired with the rest of his skills, he becomes an uncoverable pass catcher for Jalen Hurts to find anywhere on the field.

    5) Houston Texans (from CLE): Bryce Young, QB, Alabama

    Talk about a gift of a pick. With Houston currently projected to pick second overall, it’s safe to say the Davis Mills experiment has gone awry, and the time for a new signal-caller is at hand. Though they passed on Bryce Young at pick No. 2, they grab him with the fifth-overall pick all the same.

    Young will prove to be the outlier of the class of recent quarterbacks as he’ll measure smaller than most, yet he plays a huge game. Unfazed by pressure, Young has far exceeded even the loftiest of expectations during his time at Alabama and has an unflappable will about his game. He’s a leader and will lead the Texans in their next era.

    6) Seattle Seahawks (from DEN): Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State

    It’s time to address the offensive line issues with the Seattle Seahawks. Paris Johnson Jr.‘s first year at left tackle has been impeccable. He’s been strong in pass protection, mobile in the run game, and a dominant blocker at every level.

    Johnson comes with positional versatility with years of starting experience at guard but his best place in the NFL is at left tackle.

    7) Pittsburgh Steelers: Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia

    The Pittsburgh Steelers will hope Johnson is available for them here, but what a consolation prize Jalen Carter would be at pick No. 7. Carter jumps gaps with his instincts, eats up double teams for lunch, and is downright dominant at the point of attack.

    As Cameron Heyward gets longer in the tooth, the next feared interior pass rusher and elite run defender in the Steel City is here.

    8) Jacksonville Jaguars: Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson

    Myles Murphy already looks like a professional pass rusher, and he joins his former teammates Trevor Lawrence and Travis Etienne with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The selection of Murphy gives the Jaguars another elite edge defender with massive size, as Murphy will pair with last year’s No. 1 overall pick, Travon Walker, to form one of, if not the most feared duo in the NFL.

    9) Las Vegas Raiders: Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

    A big-play receiver with elite body control, strong hands, and natural separation skills, Quentin Johnston is the second receiver off the board in the top 10. Johnston heads to the Las Vegas Raiders as a complement to Davante Adams.

    Johnston is a similar player both in build and skill set to a younger, faster, twitchier Kelvin Benjamin. The former first-rounder fell from grace in the NFL, but Johnston already presents a bigger mismatch than Benjamin ever was.

    10) Atlanta Falcons: Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State

    We haven’t seen much of Jaxon Smith-Njigba this season due to injury, but the most productive receiver from the Ohio State receiving corps that included Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson has enough on tape to be a top-10 pick already. Smith-Njigba has crisp routes, incredible hands, and an understanding of defenses that is unmatched in this class.

    11) Miami Dolphins (from SF): Peter Skoronski, OL, Northwestern

    The Miami Dolphins — via the San Francisco 49ers — select Peter Skoronski from Northwestern to bolster their offensive line prowess in 2023 and beyond. Skoronski, a tackle at Northwestern, is going to play anything but that with the Dolphins.

    He’ll measure in historically “small” for a left tackle prospect and need to kick inside to make any immediate or long-lasting impact. That being said, he can learn from fellow tackle-to-interior players in Connor Williams and Robert Hunt already on the roster that have successfully made the transition.

    He has great strength for his size and even better balance through contact. Skoronski may be the best interior blocker, in time, of the whole class.

    12) Arizona Cardinals: Kelee Ringo, CB, Georgia

    The top cornerback off the board, Kelee Ringo heads to the desert to join the Arizona Cardinals. Ringo has length, speed, ball skills, and elite instincts. He’s a force on the boundary and can lock down an entire side of the field for Arizona.

    13) New England Patriots: Noah Sewell, LB, Oregon

    A New England Patriots special: grabbing a hard-nosed, three-down linebacker that’s a lock for multiple Pro Bowl selections in his career. Noah Sewell has terrific run-defense instincts and even faster read-and-react abilities in every facet.

    He’ll close space in coverage in the blink of an eye and run the alley extraordinarily well. Making matters even more difficult for opposing offenses, Sewell is an incredibly gifted blitzer as well.

    14) Chicago Bears: Kayshon Boutte, WR, LSU

    There have been times that Kayshon Boutte seems disinterested in the game at LSU. However, now that the season is starting to go their way, we’ve seen some of the flashes that make Boutte so special.

    He’s an elite route-runner with some of the best feet in the class. He’s dominant at the catch point and has polished hands. Boutte will turn any 50-50 ball into an advantage for Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears immediately.

    15) Washington Commanders: Trenton Simpson, LB, Clemson

    Coverage is the name of Trenton Simpson‘s game, as he’s the 2023 NFL Draft’s best coverage linebacker. The Washington Commanders need assistance in stopping opposing offenses in the passing game, and that’s just what Simpson will do.

    He’s a massive man with nimble feet and sharp athleticism that will see him impact the Commanders’ defense in Year 1.

    16) Green Bay Packers: Bryan Bresee, DT, Clemson

    A big man with a bigger game heads to Green Bay, as the Packers grab Bryan Bresee from Clemson. Bresee plays even stronger than he looks and has positional versatility in his game because of his athleticism and frame.

    He can rush the passer from the edge or stand up directly over the center with little to no difference in ability. The Packers get an elite defensive lineman and younger on defense in one fell swoop.

    17) Indianapolis Colts: Broderick Jones, OT, Georgia

    There are multiple positions of need for the Indianapolis Colts, but one thing is for sure: their offensive line is in need of an influx of talent, specifically at tackle. Broderick Jones is a bully of a blocker in both facets and represents an instant upgrade in Indy.

    Jones is strong and quick with great hands and feet. His balance really stands out on tape, as he’ll never be out of any rep in the run or pass game.

    18) Cincinnati Bengals: Eli Ricks, CB, Alabama

    The Eli Ricks that everyone thought was there finally showed up for Alabama against Mississippi State. His elite play flashed on nearly every single rep. He was constantly in phase with his receiver, never breaking early nor late, and made multiple plays.

    The Cincinnati Bengals grab Ricks and hope that the Mississippi State game is indicative of the talent he possesses. If that is the case, he’ll likely not even be available here for the Bengals to grab at pick No. 18 come April.

    19) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Gervon Dexter, DT, Florida

    At 6’6″ and well over 300 pounds, Gervon Dexter is a mountain of a man to block. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ defensive line gets bigger, younger, and more ferocious. Dexter gives the Bucs another piece of a fearsome pass-rushing unit and is no slouch in run defense.

    20) Detroit Lions (from LAR): BJ Ojulari, EDGE, LSU

    Bending the proverbial edge or stacking his tackles with strength, there is a bevy of ways that BJ Ojulari wins. He’ll rush past tackles or power straight through them to get to the quarterback, and the Lions get a stalwart pass rusher in the middle stages of Round 1, thanks to the Rams.

    21) Los Angeles Chargers: Olumuyiwa Fashanu, OT, Penn State

    Rising the tackle ranks thanks to a dominant season at Penn State, Olumuyiwa Fashanu is a name to know for Los Angeles Chargers fans. As good as Rashawn Slater is, the Chargers need more than just one dominant tackle, and Fashanu heads to the west coast to bolster LA’s line.

    Fashanu has dominated in the run game for the Nittany Lions as he’s paved the way for wide-open rushing lanes at the point of attack. He’s also solid on the move and in pass sets, where he utilizes his great balance and upper-body strength well.

    22) Baltimore Ravens: Nolan Smith, EDGE, Georgia

    A pass-rushing menace for offensive lines, Nolan Smith is a former top-ranked recruit who has flashes of brilliance at Georgia. With the abundance of riches on the defensive line for the Bulldogs, it’s no surprise that we likely haven’t seen the best that Smith has to offer.

    The Baltimore Ravens will get the services of David Ojabo sooner than later, whom they can then pair with Smith to usher in a new era of dominant pass rushing in Baltimore.

    23) Seattle Seahawks: Hendon Hooker, QB, Tennessee

    The Seahawks don’t quite use the Broncos’ first-round pick from the Russell Wilson trade to acquire a new quarterback, but they do grab Hendon Hooker with their own selection in the first round to take control of the franchise for the future.

    Hooker is an accurate downfield passer with great command of all throws across the field. He’ll dice up defenses left and right, up and down the field. Hooker is also a dominant athlete with the ball in his hands and can rely on that athleticism as he gets his feet ready for the NFL.

    24) Tennessee Titans: Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame

    An absolute menace for coverage units to attempt to figure out, Michael Mayer is a problem waiting to be solved by NFL defenses. Mayer is too big for safeties to cover and too fast to stick bigger linebackers on in coverage. He’ll make every catch thrown his way and is a beast to bring down in the open field.

    25) New York Jets: Clark Phillips III, CB, Utah

    One of the fastest players available in this class also comes with great coverage skills, as Clark Phillips III is an elite playmaker. He leads the nation in interceptions and interceptions returned for touchdowns in 2022, as he’s shown exactly what makes him so special this year.

    He’ll stick with receivers on any kind of route at any level of the field. And his closing burst to the football is the best in the business.

    26) Dallas Cowboys: Felix Anudike-Uzomah, EDGE, Kansas State

    A game-wrecker and dominant force on the edge heads to Dallas, as the Cowboys grab Kansas State’s Felix Anudike-Uzomah. The big man can take games over with his pass-rushing skills, and he’s shown in 2022 that he can also move up and down the defensive line to stuff rushing lanes as well.

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

    The Minnesota Vikings need defensive back help, and they head to the cornerback pool in the first round yet again. Cam Smith is long, strong, and possesses a great set of coverage skills. He’ll fit into any defensive scheme with his versatility and playing speed that he utilizes to blanket any type of receiver.

    28) Kansas City Chiefs: Isaiah Foskey, EDGE, Notre Dame

    The Kansas City Chiefs lack but a few things on either side of the ball. However, getting younger and more talented on the edge will help their secondary, as Isaiah Foskey can win his pass-rushing reps against any tackle. Foskey is big and strong yet plays like he’s a much lighter pass rusher with the way he’s nimble and balanced on his feet.

    29) New York Giants: Matthew Bergeron, OT, Syracuse

    Emerging from the tackle class this season with his efforts against some feared pass rushers, Matthew Bergeron has improved his draft stock immensely in 2022. Bergeron stymied Clemson’s Myles Murphy when they went head-to-head, and he’s done that against others all season long.

    Bergeron is sound in the passing game but excels on the move for the horizontal rushing attack at Syracuse. His athleticism will shine within his first few seasons in the NFL.

    30) Buffalo Bills: Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State

    Exploding back onto the scene to start the year, Joey Porter Jr. has largely been avoided by opposing quarterbacks since dominating the first few weeks of the 2022 season. Porter has great ball skills in coverage and helps the Buffalo Bills tighten up a unit that may need more than just his services in the years to come.

    31) Philadelphia Eagles: Emmanuel Forbes, CB, Mississippi State

    No defense is complete without a few more cornerbacks than they already have in today’s pass-happy NFL. The Philadelphia Eagles use their own first-round pick and second selection of the first round on Emmanuel Forbes, the active leader in interceptions at the collegiate level.

    MORE: NFL Draft News and Rumors Mailbag

    Forbes gives new meaning to length, as he’s incredibly long and gifted with the way he’s able to move his body around the field. He has great instincts and an even better ability at the catch point.

    2023 NFL Mock Draft | Round 2

    32) Detroit Lions: Henry To’oTo’o, LB, Alabama

    The Lions improve their defense yet again with Henry To’oTo’o, who can move up and down the field in all facets. He’ll run the alley very well and test off the charts at the Combine.

    33) Houston Texans: Antonio Johnson, CB, Texas A&M

    A cornerback with first-round ability falls out of the first round due to positional variance and needs elsewhere for specific teams. The Texans are gifted Antonio Johnson‘s services at the top of Round 2.

    34) New Orleans Saints: Rashee Rice, WR, SMU

    Maybe you’ve heard of Rashee Rice this season, maybe you haven’t. If you haven’t, then get initiated with one of the country’s best catch-point and yards-after-the-catch threats the sport has to offer, Saints fans.

    35) Cleveland Browns: Ruke Orhorhoro, DT, Clemson

    A massive man with a well-rounded game, Ruke Orhorhoro is still honing his craft. That’s scary for offensive lines in the AFC North, as Orhorhoro should only get better, and he’s already very, very good.

    36) Seattle Seahawks (from DEN): Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State

    Putting up gaudy numbers at Albany, Jared Verse bet on himself and won big time when he transferred to Florida State. He’s dominated ACC tackles left and right, and though he’s been hampered by injury, he should make the leap to the NFL look like a cakewalk.

    37) Pittsburgh Steelers: O’Cyrus Torrence, G, Florida

    The dominance that is O’Cyrus Torrence will become beloved by Steelers fans. Torrence is a big-bodied blocker with great abilities on the move. He’s tenacious and ferocious at the point of attack and will pancake defenders willingly in each facet.

    38) Jacksonville Jaguars: Calijah Kancey, DT, Pittsburgh

    Though he’s undersized, Calijah Kancey utilizes his strength and leverage incredibly well in the trenches. Kancey moves around the defensive line and can rush from anywhere, allowing the Jaguars to move the newly-acquired Myles Murphy fully outside and let former No. 1 overall pick Travon Walker rush from wherever he’s most comfortable.

    39) Carolina Panthers: Darnell Wright, OT, Tennessee

    Needing a right tackle to pair with Ikem Ekwonu, Darnell Wright is just the man for the job in Carolina. Wright tried the left side but was far more dominant on the right side, and that’s just the position he’ll fill, and improve, for the Panthers.

    40) Las Vegas Raiders: Zach Harrison, EDGE, Ohio State

    A menace off the edge, Zach Harrison heads to the Raiders to free Maxx Crosby up for more favorable one-on-one situations. He’s a great bull-rusher with plenty of bend in his game to get around any tackle that’s in front of him in his own right.

    41) Atlanta Falcons: Tyree Wilson, EDGE, Texas Tech

    Truly a physical specimen, Tyree Wilson stands at 6’6″ and 276 pounds, yet plays like a smaller edge rusher. Wilson heads to Atlanta, where he can develop his skills, whether on the exterior or the interior of the Falcons’ defensive line.

    42) Arizona Cardinals: Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas

    Don’t worry, running back fans, we’ve not forgotten about the position. The Arizona Cardinals make the first running back selection by grabbing Bijan Robinson in Round 2. A special player, Robinson may far exceed not only this draft place but the value for a running back with his overall game on the ground and through the air come next April.

    43) New England Patriots: Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson, CB, TCU

    With an elite set of coverage skills, both on the routes with receivers and at the catch point, Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson is nearly tailor-made for the Patriots’ defensive scheme. He’ll fit right in and can use his sticky-man coverage skills immediately.

    44) Chicago Bears: Emil Ekiyor Jr., G, Alabama

    Improving the Chicago Bears offensive line is key in this draft, and Emil Ekiyor Jr. does just that on the interior. Ekiyor is nimble and strong both on the ground and when backing down in pass protection.

    45) Washington Commanders: Josh Downs, WR, North Carolina

    A quick slot receiver with plenty of ability to stretch the field vertically, Josh Downs heads to the nation’s capital to join his former quarterback, Sam Howell. Sure, a quarterback may be a draft need for some Commanders’ fans, but I’m still sold on the ability that Howell has, and who better to harness that than his former dominant receiver?

    46) Green Bay Packers: Jack Campbell, LB, Iowa

    A true three-down linebacker, Jack Campbell heads to Green Bay to anchor their coverage unit, assist their run-defense efforts, and help their pass-rushing corps with his all-around abilities. Campbell runs the alley very well and can slide out in coverage to limit the flats or underneath passing lanes all the same.

    47) Carolina Panthers: JL Skinner, S, Boise State

    A big man for a safety, JL Skinner will measure tall and heavy, but he plays like a lighter player in coverage. He’s no stranger to bringing the lumber, but Skinner’s bread and butter is his ability to cover ground in coverage where he’ll close space in the blink of an eye.

    48) Indianapolis Colts: Cedric Tillman, WR, Tennessee

    He hasn’t been able to showcase his field-stretching ability due to injury in 2022, but Cedric Tillman has just that. He’s a dominant downfield receiver who just simply needs an inch before he’ll take a mile.

    49) Cincinnati Bengals: John Michael Schmitz, C, Minnesota

    The top center on the board heads to the Bengals, who still need to improve the position. John Michael Schmitz may have been the top center off the board in 2022 had he entered the draft. Instead, he’s the top center off the board in 2023, as he’s an elite run blocker in space and just as dominant in pass protection.

    50) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Nehemiah Pritchett, CB, Auburn

    Nehemiah Pritchett has great length at cornerback and comes with sticky hands all along routes and at the catch point. Pritchett is a prime candidate to kick inside to limit slot receivers for the Bucs’ defense, something they haven’t done well in 2022.

    51) Los Angeles Rams: Jarrett Patterson, OL, Notre Dame

    Jarrett Patterson has dominated at guard this season after dominating at center in years past. The Los Angeles Rams get on the board with the selection of Patterson to plug and play wherever he’s comfortable in 2023, as his versatility only pales in comparison to his overall, well-rounded blocking ability.

    52) Baltimore Ravens: Kyu Blu Kelly, CB, Stanford

    Kyu Blu Kelly comes across the country to a Baltimore defense that needs a playmaker like him in coverage. Kelly is stingy against any type of receiver and has shown a knack for finding the ball no matter the opposing play call, as he’s dominated running backs that have broken contain to his side.

    53) Seattle Seahawks: Justin Flowe, LB, Oregon

    We’ve seen the flashes of brilliance that once made Justin Flowe such a highly-ranked recruit in 2022. Those flashes have been terrific and he’s rounding into form for Oregon as a three-down linebacker. His coverage skills are sharp and his run defense is a bit reliant upon his instincts and he’s still improving every single game.

    54) Miami Dolphins: Jahmyr Gibbs, RB, Alabama

    The second running back off the board, Jahmyr Gibbs heads to Miami after dominating the SEC competition in his first season at Alabama. A true threat with the ball in his hands, Gibbs is equally impressive between the tackles as he is running routes out of the backfield. His easiest player comparison is Alvin Kamara if Kamara were a bit bigger and better through the tackles.

    55) Los Angeles Chargers: Siaki Ika, DT, Baylor

    Siaki Ika radically transforms the Chargers’ defensive line with his ability to rush the passer on the interior. He’ll wreck the offense’s passing game plan and shut down rushing lanes all the same.

    56) Tennessee Titans: Ivan Pace Jr., LB, Cincinnati

    The nation’s leader in tackles for loss is no joke nor a fluke, as Ivan Pace Jr. has dominated for the Cincinnati Bearcats in his first season with the program. He uses his great instincts and his terrific athleticism to find the ball carrier through the trash and rips through blockers with strength and balance to make play after play. He’ll become a fan favorite in Tennessee.

    57) Dallas Cowboys: Connor Galvin, OT, Baylor

    Connor Galvin makes the trek from Waco to Arlington and injects the Cowboys’ offensive line with grit. Galvin, who possesses a salty attitude in each facet, will quickly dominate the point of attack on the ground and use his great balance and strength to keep Dak Prescott clean from pressure.

    58) New York Jets: Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College

    Zay Flowers is much more than he’ll be given credit for due to his size and stature. He’s a physically-gifted receiver who has elite catch-point skills and terrific coordination. Flowers can get any ball — against any defender — and has natural separation skills along his routes to shake free from his defensive back.

    59) Minnesota Vikings: Ali Gaye, EDGE, LSU

    The jury is out on Ali Gaye’s well-rounded ability, but what he does best is simply that, the best. Gaye is a monster when he rushes the passer, using his quick hands, strong lower body, and athleticism to blow by tackles, power through them, or shake free to get to the quarterback.

    60) Kansas City Chiefs: Christian Gonzalez, CB, Oregon

    A transfer from Colorado, Christian Gonzalez has taken to his new surroundings in Eugene, as he’s exploded onto the stage for the Ducks. He has great ability with his backpedal, utilizing his athleticism to stay in phase with receivers of all backgrounds.

    MORE: Top 2023 NFL Draft Prospects

    61) New York Giants: Will McDonald IV, EDGE, Iowa State

    One of the more experienced players in this entire draft, Will McDonald IV rejuvenates the Giants’ pass-rushing unit with his pure power and speed from the outside. He’ll win rep after rep against slower tackles who just simply can’t meet him at the point of attack.

    62) Buffalo Bills: Brandon Joseph, S, Notre Dame

    We’ve come a long way from his national-best interception total back when he was with Northwestern, but that special coverage defender is still there. Now with Notre Dame a year after his position goals changed at Northwestern, Brandon Joseph would do wonders with a positional change to more of a free safety with Buffalo, a position they’ll need as Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde won’t be around forever.

    63) Philadelphia Eagles: Andre Carter II, EDGE, Army

    Andre Carter II has first-round talent and upper-echelon size for the position. He’s tailor-made to rush the passer from the edge, as the 6’7″ outside linebacker brings power and strength to the Eagles’ pass-rushing unit.
