2023 NFL Mock Draft: Traits Elevate Anthony Richardson, Bryce Young, and Others

In our latest 7-Round 2023 NFL Mock Draft at Pro Football Network, Anthony Richardson's raw traits put him in the conversation for the No. 1 overall pick.

You hear that? That’s NFL draft season getting closer. We haven’t completely rolled forward into the new year yet, but as December hits, we’re inching closer. In this 2023 NFL Mock Draft, we take an updated look at how the board might fall in April.

1) Houston Texans: Anthony Richardson, QB, Florida

Not every prospect with elite tools becomes Josh Allen or Patrick Mahomes. Far from it. But there’s merit to banking on traits, especially if they’re present in such a high quantity as Anthony Richardson possesses. Richardson brings legitimacy to the term “generational upside.”

2) Chicago Bears: Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia

Pressure matters no matter where it comes from, but if you can get an interior rusher with the upside that Jalen Carter possesses, that direct interior pressure takes precedence. Carter is a wrecking ball inside with elite explosiveness, power, leverage, and wicked hands.

3) Detroit Lions (From LAR): Bryce Young, QB, Alabama

Jared Goff has been efficient for Detroit this year. But in a league ruled by elite traits at QB, the Lions shouldn’t pass up an opportunity to upgrade. Bryce Young‘s elite creation capacity is something Detroit is sorely lacking right now, and Young’s “it” factor can bring the offense into its final evolution.

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

The Seahawks committed grand larceny with the Russell Wilson trade and now find themselves with a potential top-five pick while in the playoff hunt. They go BPA here and get a fierce two-phase threat off the edge in Alabama’s Will Anderson Jr.

5) Carolina Panthers: C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State

The Panthers have a lot of revamping to do on offense, and it all starts at quarterback. Ideally, more pieces come in around C.J. Stroud, but he has the arm strength, anticipatory vision, poise, accuracy, and necessary mobility to be a franchise-level distributor.

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

A dominant seven-sack, 14-TFL season has Tyree Wilson on the doorstep of the top 10. At 6’6″, 275 pounds, with ample burst and almost 36″ arms, Wilson has near-generational power capacity. On an Eagles front with Jordan Davis, he could be a game-wrecker 1-on-1.

7) Arizona Cardinals: Christian Gonzalez, CB, Oregon

There are a few contenders for the CB1 mantle. But who truly has it all? The answer might be Christian Gonzalez. The 6’2″, 200-pound cover man has the highest-quality mix of explosiveness, speed, length, and fluidity in the class, with adept eyes and ball skills as well.

8) Green Bay Packers: Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State

With the news of Olumuyiwa Fashanu returning to school, Paris Johnson Jr. now becomes the front-runner at OT1. He’s not quite as strong at the point as Fashanu, but Johnson is an elite athlete with power, flexibility, and impressive flashes of hand replacement.

9) Las Vegas Raiders: Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson

Raiders fans probably aren’t keen on taking a Clemson edge rusher in the top 10. But listen to me when I say: Don’t scout the helmet. Myles Murphy is different. He bends the rules with his fleet-footed athleticism at 6’5″, 275, and bends tackles outright with his elite power capacity.

10) Houston Texans (From CLE): Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

The Texans have one of the biggest boom-or-bust draft combos in Richardson and Quentin Johnston. But if this duo hits, we’re talking dominant offensive upside. Johnston has unfair athleticism and flexibility at 6’4″, 215 pounds, and is a surefire alpha at the catch point.

11) Jacksonville Jaguars: Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State

The board didn’t fall exceptionally well for the Jaguars here, but Jared Verse is an exciting and under-the-radar option. At 6’4″, 249 pounds, Verse has the length, explosiveness, bend, and active hand usage to be a consistent pass-rushing threat around the arc.

12) Pittsburgh Steelers: Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State

It’s fitting here that Joey Porter Jr. — the son of former Steelers All-Pro Joey Porter Sr. — winds up back in the Steel City. The younger Porter is a stalwart defender like his father but at cornerback. He has the fluidity, length, physicality, and quick reaction ability to put the clamps on receivers.

13) Detroit Lions: Kelee Ringo, CB, Georgia

In need of CB talent, the Lions manage to land one of the top cornerbacks in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft. Kelee Ringo may need to cut weight a bit at the next level to maximize his transition speed, but he’s a rare size-speed defender with willing physicality and smooth ball-tracking ability.

14) Indianapolis Colts: Will Levis, QB, Kentucky

There will be lots of discussion about Will Levis in 2023. He didn’t show as much progression as desired this past year. But as we’ve seen, teams bank on tools. With his rifle arm, rumbling athleticism, and toughness, this is probably as far as Levis falls.

15) Atlanta Falcons: Bryan Bresee, DT, Clemson

Grady Jarrett is Grady Jarrett. And quietly, Ta’Quon Graham was a solid run defender for Atlanta when healthy this year. But Bryan Bresee adds a pass-rushing presence that few can emulate alongside Jarrett, with his length, explosive athleticism, and swift lateral agility.

16) Seattle Seahawks: Clark Phillips III, CB, Utah

On the surface, this appears a bit early for Clark Phillips III. But in spite of his size, Phillips is an elite athlete with twitch, foot speed, fluidity, closing burst, and high-end playmaking instincts at the catch point. He can be an elite slot CB alongside Tariq Woolen, putting extra stress on opposing offenses.

17) Los Angeles Chargers: Noah Sewell, LB, Oregon

Noah Sewell has always looked the part at 6’3″, 250 pounds. He has rare size for a linebacker, and yet he wears it incredibly well, bringing solid range at the second level. His ability to come downhill, surge through gaps, and enforce against the run, however, will be his top selling point for Los Angeles.

18) New England Patriots: Isaiah Foskey, EDGE, Notre Dame

The Patriots have a great deal of versatility on their defensive front. But opposite Matthew Judon, they don’t have a consistent stand-up edge rusher they can rely on. Isaiah Foskey changes that in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft. Foskey’s explosiveness, length, and hand usage can take over reps.

19) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Michael Penix Jr., QB, Washington

Injuries will be the big wild card on Michael Penix Jr.‘s profile. But by his 2022 tape alone, he’s a QB prospect worthy of top-five positional hype. He’d be particularly fun to watch working Tampa’s vertical concepts, with his layering arm talent, vision, and gunslinger mentality.

20) Washington Commanders: Peter Skoronski, OT, Northwestern

The Commanders will have work to do on the offensive line this offseason — not just adding talent, but also shuffling when necessary. Peter Skoronski allows them to do both. He can be a high-quality starter at tackle or move inside and flourish with his traits.

21) Baltimore Ravens: Jordan Addison, WR, USC

Baltimore’s lack of output at wide receiver has come back to bite them this year. It’s time for the Ravens to finally say “nevermore,” and invest high capital at the position. Jordan Addison‘s blend of separation potential, dynamic RAC, and high-level instincts can boost up the group.

22) New York Jets: Brian Branch, DB, Alabama

Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed have formed one of the best cornerback duos in the NFL this year. Put Brian Branch in the slot between them, and let them all prosper. Branch’s natural coverage ability, combined with his proactive physicality, makes him a tantalizing prospect.

23) Cincinnati Bengals: Gervon Dexter, DT, Florida

D.J. Reader is playing as well as he ever has, but the Bengals could use more talent alongside him. At 6’6″, 312 pounds, Gervon Dexter is a walking forklift with impressive displacement potential, and the strength to swallow up lanes in the run game.

24) New York Giants: Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame

Wide receiver is a common selection for the Giants here, but in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft, they add an equally appealing weapon in Michael Mayer. Mayer is an incredibly well-rounded tight end prospect, whose hands and instincts can be invaluable on crucial downs.

25) Denver Broncos (From SF via MIA): Trenton Simpson, LB, Clemson

The Broncos’ defense has exceeded expectations in 2022, but linebacker remains a position of need. Trenton Simpson fits this personnel group well. At 6’3″, 230 pounds, he has range, length, and versatility. A creative defensive mind could help Simpson dominate with this cast.

26) Tennessee Titans: Broderick Jones, OT, Georgia

The Titans will assuredly need a new left tackle when Taylor Lewan departs. But Tennessee doesn’t need just any tackle. They need a road grader on the ground, and Broderick Jones qualifies better than most. His pass protection is still a bit raw, but the tools are superb.

27) Dallas Cowboys: Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina

At his best, Anthony Brown is solid, but there’s room for the Cowboys to upgrade. Cam Smith is quietly right there with the top cornerbacks in the class with his mix of explosiveness, fluidity, ball tracking, physicality, and willingness in run support.

28) Buffalo Bills: Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas

I know I make this selection often, but it just doesn’t make sense for Bijan Robinson to fall past Buffalo. The Bills lack many glaring needs, and Robinson is a blue-chip RB prospect who could challenge the “running backs don’t matter” stereotype with his high-level skill set.

29) Minnesota Vikings: Josh Downs, WR, North Carolina

Justin Jefferson’s dominance in 2022 shows how lucky the Vikings are at WR, but also how much an extra dynamic threat could truly put defenses in a bind. Josh Downs can be that missing piece with his elite explosiveness, spatial manipulation, and versatility.

30) Kansas City Chiefs: Rashee Rice, WR, SMU

The JuJu Smith-Schuster signing has paid dividends for the Chiefs, but Kansas City could still use a size threat with premier three-level ability. Rashee Rice qualifies with his hyper-elite catching instincts and RAC potential at 6’2″, 203 pounds, with arms over 33″.

31) Philadelphia Eagles: Calijah Kancey, DL, Pitt

You hear the term “ball of butcher knives” for some players, but few exude it more perfectly than Calijah Kancey. Kancey is incredibly dense and compact at 6’0″, 275 pounds, and yet, he can demolish blocks with his explosiveness, twitch, and hand strength.

Round 2

32) Houston Texans: BJ Ojulari, EDGE, LSU

BJ Ojulari has been lingering on the fringe of Round 1 for a while. The 6’3″, 245-pound edge rusher has the high-end burst, flexibility, and play pace to warrant that standing, but strength is a concern. Learning from Jerry Hughes would be valuable.

33) Pittsburgh Steelers (From CHI): Anton Harrison, OT, Oklahoma

Losing Fashanu was a big blow to the 2023 NFL Draft OT class, but Anton Harrison has the athleticism and power to fill the gap as a potential first-round lineman. He slips just outside Round 1 in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft, but the Steelers aren’t complaining.

34) Seattle Seahawks (From DEN): Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State

Together, DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett demand a lot of attention from defenses. Now, imagine if the Seahawks had Jaxon Smith-Njigba underneath in the slot, using his nuance and instincts to dominate 1-on-1 matchups. Geno Smith’s cooking just got hotter.

35) Los Angeles Rams: O’Cyrus Torrence, G, Florida

Finally poised to have a top-50 draft selection, the Rams should use it to improve their offensive line. O’Cyrus Torrence — widely considered one of the top guards in the 2023 class — is still on the board and brings stifling grip strength and overwhelming rotational power.

36) New Orleans Saints: Bo Nix, QB, Oregon

Odds are, neither Andy Dalton nor Jameis Winston is the long-term solution at QB for the Saints. Opinions are still split on Bo Nix, but he’s improved in 2022, and he has the high-end creation capacity and arm talent to be a solid starter at his max projection.

37) Arizona Cardinals: Felix Anudike-Uzomah, EDGE, Kansas State

Edge rusher isn’t a position you rest on your laurels at. Even with multiple young talents, the Cardinals can still add more to the wings. Felix Anudike-Uzomah is a technician and a demolition expert all in one, with some of the most dangerous combo work in this class.

38) Green Bay Packers: Lukas Van Ness, EDGE, Iowa

A declaration decision remains in the wings for Iowa EDGE Lukas Van Ness. But if he declares, he’s sure to bring top 50 buzz. Especially for the Packers, Van Ness brings the size of a big EDGE at 6’5″, 264 pounds, along with the burst and leverage to maximize that size.

39) Carolina Panthers: Jahmyr Gibbs, RB, Alabama

D’Onta Foreman is worth keeping in the rotation for the Panthers, but it’s near impossible to replicate a weapon like Jahmyr Gibbs. Gibbs brings elite dynamic ability and short-area manipulation as a runner, and he’s also a high-level receiving threat.

40) Cleveland Browns: Tuli Tuipulotu, EDGE, USC

Tuli Tuipulotu has been dominant in 2022, with 20 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks for the Trojans. He’s 6’4″, 290 pounds, and yet, has the explosiveness and twitch to rush the edge and fold tackles with power. At his best, Tuipulotu brings shades of Cameron Jordan.

41) Jacksonville Jaguars: Jalin Hyatt, WR, Tennessee

We’ve seen time and time again how speed can stress defenses. Having Christian Kirk and Jalin Hyatt in the same receiving corps — along with Calvin Ridley, Zay Jones, and Jamal Agnew — could be a devastating combination behind the arm of Trevor Lawrence.

42) Pittsburgh Steelers: Kayshon Boutte, WR, LSU

Kayshon Boutte feels like a safe bet to experience a slide if he declares. Then, the conversation shifts to: When does he get picked up? For a Steelers team with some long-term uncertainty at WR and a need for three-level talent, he can be a fit.

43) Detroit Lions: Antonio Johnson, DB, Texas A&M

A rocky season as a whole may bump a few Aggies down the 2023 NFL Draft Board, but Antonio Johnson still provided flashes of the talent that landed him in early first-round mocks. For Detroit, he’s an able big-slot with rare potential at 6’3″, 200 pounds.

44) Las Vegas Raiders: JL Skinner, S, Boise State

Ending the Johnathan Abram experiment was the first step for the Raiders, but there’s still a void opposite Trevon Moehrig in the secondary. At 6’4″, 220 pounds, JL Skinner can be a tremendous complement at strong safety, with speed, burst, and ruthless aggression.

45) Indianapolis Colts: Cooper Beebe, G, Kansas State

The Colts have issues all across the offensive line, so here, it was all about finding where the value aligned best on the board. Cooper Beebe doesn’t always get his due as a Day 2 prospect, but he can be a steady starter for a long time with his high football IQ.

46) Atlanta Falcons: Eli Ricks, CB, Alabama

Casey Hayward was a short-term fix at cornerback for the Falcons when he was healthy. But a long-term running mate alongside A.J. Terrell is still a need. Eli Ricks may be a worthy investment in Round 2 with his length, physicality, and elite playmaking potential.

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

It’s a commonly accepted premise that the Chargers need more speed at wide receiver. Zay Flowers provides that and more in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft. At the Shrine Bowl, his high-end twitch, control, balance, and contortion ability will be on full display.

48) New England Patriots: Cedric Tillman, WR, Tennessee

The Patriots’ receiving corps has several pieces, and yet, the sum of the parts is underwhelming. Scheme is partly to blame, but a complete threat like Cedric Tillman — with size, burst, throttle control, and instincts — could give the group a needed facelift.

49) Seattle Seahawks: LaDarius Henderson, G, Arizona State

The Seahawks might have an impending departure at guard, depending on what happens with Gabe Jackson. LaDarius Henderson can be a very able replacement. The Shrine Bowl commit has an elite explosiveness-length-power combo at 6’5″, 310 pounds.

50) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Devon Witherspoon, CB, Illinois

At around 6’0″, 180 pounds, Devon Witherspoon’s weight may be a concern down the stretch. But size aside, he’s just a baller at cornerback. He’s not only fluid and twitchy in coverage, with instincts and ball skills, but he’s also a homing missile coming downhill in run support.

51) Washington Commanders: Hendon Hooker, QB, Tennessee

Hendon Hooker‘s age — 25 years old as a rookie — and his torn ACL certainly won’t help his stock. There’s also a question to be asked about his full translatability. But for the Commanders, he’s worth a swing in Round 2 with his athleticism and efficient style.

52) New York Jets: Brandon Dorlus, DL, Oregon

Brandon Dorlus has always been reasonably productive in college, but the right landing spot could take his game to the next level. It’s very exciting thinking about Dorlus’ explosiveness and power at 6’3″, 285 pounds, in Robert Saleh’s NASCAR packages.

53) Cincinnati Bengals: Matthew Bergeron, OT, Syracuse

A conversation may need to be had about Jonah Williams at some point. In the meantime, Matthew Bergeron provides an eventual succession plan with his size and high-energy mobility. He could also feasibly slide inside to guard.

54) New York Giants: Tommy Eichenberg, LB, Ohio State

Tommy Eichenberg’s instincts still run hot and cold at times, but he’s visibly improved in 2022. At 6’3″, 235 pounds, he has the size, athleticism, and play strength to be a projected upgrade for the Giants, with steely toughness on top of it all.

55) Chicago Bears (From BAL): Darnell Wright, OT, Tennessee

Braxton Jones has flashed promise at LT for the Bears, but right tackle remains an area of concern. Tennessee’s Darnell Wright — a former five-star recruit with elite power and violent, calculated hands at 6’6″, 330 pounds — can fill that spot well.

56) Tennessee Titans: John Michael Schmitz, C, Minnesota

Ben Jones has been an admirable starter for Tennessee, but it’s nearing time to look ahead. With no centers taken yet in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft, it makes sense for Tennessee to snag the best, most physical one on the board in Minnesota’s John Michael Schmitz.

57) Carolina Panthers (From SF): Emmanuel Forbes, CB, Mississippi State

Emmanuel Forbes finished his collegiate career with 14 interceptions across three seasons, along with an FBS-record six pick-sixes. With Jaycee Horn locking down receivers on the other side, Forbes could use his explosiveness and playmaking instincts to stay productive.

58) Buffalo Bills: Nolan Smith, EDGE, Georgia

The Bills have a vast array of different pass rushers in their defensive line rotation. Von Miller plays off of the others very well, but he’s getting older and more injury-prone. Nolan Smith, meanwhile, is a raw pass rusher, whose high-end tools could be maximized under Miller’s wing.

59) Dallas Cowboys: Drew Sanders, LB, Arkansas

There’s a looming question of where Drew Sanders plays at the next level. At 6’5″, 230 pounds, he has length and pass-rushing experience, but he can also play off-ball with his athleticism. Ultimately, Sanders gives Dallas even more versatility alongside Micah Parsons.

60) Miami Dolphins: Tank Bigsby, RB, Auburn

You’ve heard of “Tank for Tua.” Now get ready for “Tank and Tua.” Mike McDaniel’s scheme has been a godsend for Miami, but the team still lacks a premier back who can carry momentum for long stretches. Tank Bigsby can be that guy.

61) Detroit Lions (From MIN): Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah

Having traded T.J. Hockenson to the Vikings, the Lions need to re-up at tight end. Lions fans can take refuge in the fact that there are no first-round TEs in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft. In Round 2, Dalton Kincaid suffices with his size and body control.

62) Kansas City Chiefs: Blake Freeland, OT, BYU

Blake Freeland towers over everyone as a 6’8″ blocker, and as you might expect from a former shot put and javelin state champion, he overwhelms opponents with his athleticism and power. Leverage and flexibility are legitimate concerns, but Freeland can be a quality player.

63) Philadelphia Eagles: Zach Evans, RB, Ole Miss

Miles Sanders has been great in 2022, but his contract situation still looms. If he hits free agency, the Eagles should look to add an RB in the early rounds. With his explosive athleticism and smooth ability upfield, Zach Evans can complement Jalen Hurts well.

Round 3

64) Houston Texans, Sedrick Van Pran, C, Georgia

Sedrick Van Pran gives Houston an athletic, physical, and well-leveraged center with a long career ahead.

65) Chicago Bears, Trey Palmer, WR, Nebraska

Trey Palmer adds a dynamic element to Chicago’s offense with his speed and ball-tracking ability, and he’s still reaching his ceiling.

66) Los Angeles Rams, Derick Hall, EDGE, Auburn

Derick Hall has a rare mix of natural leverage and proportional length, and uses his well-rounded profile to sustain production.

67) Denver Broncos, Dawand Jones, OT, Ohio State

A towering spectacle at 6’8″, 359 pounds, Dawand Jones can be a stalwart right tackle with his power and width.

68) Arizona Cardinals, Siaki Ika, DT, Baylor

A value deal at this point, Siaki Ika gives the Cardinals an imposing presence at nose tackle, with three-down utility at 0-tech.

69) Green Bay Packers, Xavier Hutchinson, WR, Iowa State

Xavier Hutchinson fits the Packers’ size and athleticism preferences at 6’3″, 205 pounds, but can also play between the slot and the boundary.

70) New England Patriots (From CAR), Adetomiwa Adebawore, DL, Northwestern

A versatile defender with projected hybrid appeal, Adetomiwa Adebawore uses his burst and forceful hands to blast through blockers.

71) New Orleans Saints, Myles Brooks, CB, Louisiana Tech

A Stephen F. Austin transfer with length and athleticism at 6’2″, who has three interceptions and eight deflections this year.

72) Jacksonville Jaguars, Cody Mauch, G, North Dakota State

A factory of pain on wheels, who projects very well inside, with an enticing mix of grating physicality and athleticism in open space.

73) Pittsburgh Steelers, Keeanu Benton, DT, Wisconsin

A long, heavy-handed nose tackle with high-end linear athleticism off the line, and the power to move obstacles at will.

74) Detroit Lions, Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Rome Odunze may return to school, but if he declares, he’s worth an early-round pick with his athleticism and three-level ability.

75) Las Vegas Raiders, Darrell Luter Jr., CB, South Alabama

A hyper-productive Sun Belt cornerback and Senior Bowl commit with length and instincts, Darrell Luter Jr.’s piled up five picks and 14 deflections over the past two seasons.

76) Houston Texans (From CLE), Byron Young, DT, Alabama

Right away, Byron Young gives Houston a high-end run defender. But down the stretch in 2022, he made strides as a pass rusher with his athleticism and strength.

77) Denver Broncos (From IND), Cameron Ward, QB, Washington State

If Cameron Ward declares, he assuredly has tools worth investing in early on — chief among them his lateral twitch and elite arm elasticity.

78) Atlanta Falcons, Tyler Steen, OT, Alabama

Tyler Steen is fleet-footed, long, well-leveraged, and fairly sound technically. He also has left-right versatility.

79) Miami Dolphins (From NE), Jaelyn Duncan, OT, Maryland

The first-round hype might be premature, but Jaelyn Duncan is one of the most athletic linemen in this class — worth developing at the right price.

80) Seattle Seahawks, Henry To’oTo’o, LB, Alabama

Henry To’oTo’o gives the Seahawks a fairly rangy, high-energy linebacker with MIKE capabilities in Round 3 of this 2023 NFL Mock Draft.

81) Los Angeles Chargers, Kyu Blu Kelly, CB, Stanford

A snappy mover with length, physicality, and ball skills, Kyu Blu Kelly can lock down a spot on the Chargers’ boundary.

82) Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Israel Abanikanda, RB, Pitt

One of the most productive runners in college football, Israel Abanikanda can be a workhorse NFL back with his explosiveness, balance, and vision between the tackles.

83) Indianapolis Colts (From WAS), Charlie Jones, WR, Purdue

Levis will need a safety blanket to help him ease his way into the NFL, and Charlie Jones can be that safety blanket between Michael Pittman Jr. and Alec Pierce.

84) Cincinnati Bengals, Tony Grimes, CB, North Carolina

A former five-star recruit, Tony Grimes has all the tools to develop into a stud at the NFL level — among them athleticism, fluidity, length, and high-end coordination.

85) New York Giants, A.T. Perry, WR, Wake Forest

A.T. Perry might succeed where Kenny Golladay failed in New York, providing the Giants with an ultra-instinctive boundary pass catcher at 6’5″, 205 pounds.

86) Baltimore Ravens, Layden Robinson, G, Texas A&M

Few guards in this class are more well put together than Layden Robinson — a brick house at 6’4″, 320 pounds with elite proportional length and power.

87) New York Jets, Jordan Morgan, OT, Arizona

At 6’6″, 320 pounds, Jordan Morgan has NFL size, and he’s also an impressive athlete with foot speed, knee bend, and impressive corrective form.

88) Carolina Panthers (From SF), Tucker Kraft, TE, South Dakota State

Continuing the revamp of the Panthers’ offense, Tucker Kraft is a sturdy, dynamic threat at tight end, with dual-sided instincts and RAC ability.

89) Tennessee Titans, Jonathan Mingo, WR, Ole Miss

Jonathan Mingo’s size-speed athleticism at 6’2″, 225 pounds, is the source material for countless big plays and boundless excitement alongside Treylon Burks.

90) Dallas Cowboys, Blake Corum, RB, Michigan

If Tony Pollard leaves the Cowboys in free agency, Blake Corum can potentially fill his shoes as an explosive, forward-flowing back with a high-end mix of traits.

91) Buffalo Bills, Brandon Joseph, S, Northwestern

Brandon Joseph still struggles coming downhill, but he has athleticism and ball skills. Buffalo would be the perfect place for him to develop.

92) Miami Dolphins, Kris Abrams-Draine, CB, Missouri

The Dolphins are in dire need of additional CB depth — something Kris Abrams-Draine can assist with as a sticky, tenacious cover man.

93) Minnesota Vikings, Kei’Trel Clark, CB, Louisville

Kei’Trel Clark would be a very competent successor to Chandon Sullivan in the slot with his high-energy mobility and playmaking presence.

94) Kansas City Chiefs, Bralen Trice, EDGE, Washington

Bralen Trice, who could declare early after notching eight sacks in 2022, is a prime fit for Kansas City with his burst, power, and violent disposition at 6’4″, 269 pounds.

95) Philadelphia Eagles, Dorian Williams, LB, Tulane

A prolific producer with 105 tackles, 6.5 TFLs, four sacks, two picks, and six deflections, who also has great explosiveness and proportional length.

96) Cleveland Browns, Fabien Lovett, DT, Florida State

A rock-solid 6’4″, 306-pound interior defender who can hold gaps and maintain positioning against resistance, while also providing some juice as a pass rusher.

97) San Francisco 49ers, Kendre Miller, RB, TCU

The 49ers do have Christian McCaffrey, but given his injury propensity, adding Kendre Miller’s dynamic twitch and contact balance to the rotation might be a sound move.

98) San Francisco 49ers, Luke Wypler, C, Ohio State

Should he declare early, Luke Wypler gives the 49ers a young zone-oriented center to develop in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft.

99) New York Giants (From SF), Tre Tucker, WR, Cincinnati

An undersized but incredibly dynamic threat with 4.4 speed and elite lateral twitch, who could be a much more productive pro in the right system.
