While the regular season ends for college and nears the postseason for the pros, it also means that something exciting draws near. As we get closer to the end of the NFL regular season, we dive into another 2023 NFL Mock Draft to build that excitement.
2023 NFL Mock Draft | Round 1
The NFL draft order for this 2023 mock is taken from the current NFL standings as of Dec. 13. Check the PFN Mock Draft Simulator after every NFL game to see the most up-to-date draft order, and each subsequent mock draft will indicate the rapidly changing environment that is the 2023 NFL Draft.
1) Houston Texans: Bryce Young, QB, Alabama
Houston needs a quarterback with the “it” factor, and Bryce Young gives them exactly what they need. A player with ice in his veins, Young is colder than a Midwest winter in the clutch. You simply can’t rattle him.
Everyone’s going to talk about his size, but Young brings things to the table that you can’t teach. One thing I’d bet on is Young finding ways to be successful, and his ability to thrive in the midst of adversity is what gives him a good chance to win at the next level.
2) Seattle Seahawks (From DEN): Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia
Seattle is home to the 12th man, and in a way, they might play with 12 men on the field if they get Jalen Carter. Sometimes it feels like Carter is two people. Offensive linemen must worry about quickness and power when facing Carter, and that skill set isn’t something you normally see in the trenches.
3) Chicago Bears: Will Anderson Jr., Alabama
The chatter surrounding Will Anderson Jr. seems to have died down, but it isn’t affecting his draft stock. Still in contention to be the first overall pick, Anderson brings a fierce competitiveness that allows him to command more attention from opposing offenses.
Chicago needs help on the edge, and Anderson will in that regard, but also remind the Bears’ organization that Justin Fields needs help on offense too.
4) Detroit Lions (From LAR): C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State
Detroit’s playing much better as of late, but the quarterback position remains a need that must be addressed. C.J. Stroud gets a chance to remind everyone why he can be the top pick in the draft, but until then, he “falls” to the Lions in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft.

Stroud’s arm strength and accuracy give the Buckeyes a fighting chance of carving up the Georgia secondary in the College Football Playoff, and a strong performance could sway teams in his direction.
5) Philadelphia Eagles (From NO): Kelee Ringo, CB, Georgia
At this point, the Eagles can’t go wrong here. Whether they take a player or move back, Philadelphia sits in a great spot.
The cornerback position isn’t a huge short-term need for the defense, but it wouldn’t hurt to add some young talent to the squad. Kelee Ringo faces the aforementioned Stroud and the Ohio State passing attack in the CFP semifinal, which gives him another chance to face top-tier talent in his final games with the Bulldogs.
6) Arizona Cardinals: Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson
Arizona’s defense is full of talented players with unique frames. So why not add another?
Myles Murphy wrecked most of the competition he faced this year, and he’s ready to move toward the future. A player with great length and explosiveness, Arizona would be happy to snatch him in the 2023 NFL Draft.
7) Indianapolis Colts: Anthony Richardson, QB, Florida
Anthony Richardson is what Uncle Rico thought he was in Napoleon Dynamite. The kid can chuck a pigskin a quarter mile (maybe even further than that), and he’s a nightmare to stop in the open field.
Put Richardson next to Jonathan Taylor, and you’ve got yourself a dynamic duo. The Colts also have some potential at wide receiver, but they need a QB that can help elevate their games as well.
8) Las Vegas Raiders: Bryan Bresee, DT, Clemson
If not for the injuries, Bryan Bresee would be in the conversation for top overall pick. Shoot, he still might be, despite that.
A 6’5″, 300-pound monster, Bresee emulates a lot of what makes Carter so special. Bresee has the power and strength in his frame, but you can’t teach the athleticism and quickness he brings to the table too.
9) Carolina Panthers: Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU
After Young, Stroud, and Richardson, there’s no reason to stretch for a quarterback in the top 10. Carolina needs a future QB, but not that bad.
Instead, they give Sam Darnold another weapon to utilize alongside DJ Moore. Quentin Johnston stretches the field with his frame and speed, and that will open things up for guys like Moore.
10) Atlanta Falcons: Tyree Wilson, EDGE, Texas Tech
Another player who can wreck his opponent, Tyree Wilson‘s rise to the top 10 has been fun to watch. Texas Tech doesn’t produce many first-round picks on defense, let alone someone this high, but Wilson deserves to be here. Atlanta is in the process of a rebuild, and nothing would help set the tone more than getting a game-changer on the edge.
11) Jacksonville Jaguars: Jordan Addison, WR, USC
Let’s be honest for a second. We all knew Trevor Lawrence was going to be a major problem if he figured it out. Well, he’s finding his stride, and the Jaguars appear to have a promising future. So why not give them someone that’s going to aid Lawrence’s trajectory?
You could make an argument that Jordan Addison was still the best wide receiver in college football despite missing time. Just ask Caleb Williams what he does for his quarterback. Addison’s great at creating separation and excels after the catch as well.
12) Houston Texans (From CLE): Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State
Any concerns about the size of the first player the Texans took can be negated with this one. Joey Porter Jr. brings great size, length, and reaction skills to lock down his receiver. Houston’s offense looks to build under Young, and the defense hopes Porter can help do the same on the other side of the ball.
13) Pittsburgh Steelers: Christian Gonzalez, CB, Oregon
The title of CB1 remains up for grabs, but Christian Gonzalez could snag it. Just like he’s been doing to passes all year. At 6’2″, 200 pounds, Mike Tomlin and the Steelers are going to love Gonzalez’s potential. He has all of the tools to be a great corner, and he’s joining a system that can help get him there.
14) Green Bay Packers: Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame
Aaron Rodgers needs help, that much is for certain. He can’t do it all by himself anymore, and the Packers are trying to give him the weapons he needs. Adding Michael Mayer in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft should help. Mayer elevates the run and pass games for the Packers and gives them a reliable pass catcher with huge upside.
15) Detroit Lions: Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina
After watching the Lions beat the Vikings this past weekend, one thing stood out: the defense plays with a ton of juice. So Cam Smith would be a natural fit on that side of the ball. Jeff Okudah needs some help too, so why not add a player with great physicality in defending the run and at the catch point?
16) New England Patriots: Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State
When evaluating Paris Johnson Jr., you have to appreciate the consistency he’s displayed all year. Entering the year as OT1, Johnson remains at the top of that list. He brings elite tools to the Patriots’ offense in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft, and fans will love the protection he’ll provide for Mac Jones.
17) Seattle Seahawks: Trenton Simpson, LB, Clemson
The Jordyn Brooks pick seems to be working just fine for the Seahawks, so adding another athletic, versatile linebacker wouldn’t hurt. Trenton Simpson is a Swiss Army Knife on the field. He has the power to take on an offensive lineman and can also chase down a ball carrier on the sideline with ease.
18) New York Jets: Broderick Jones, OT, Georgia
One of the more interesting players in the draft in terms of where he’ll land is Broderick Jones. New York needs a tackle that can set the tone, and Jones gives them that.
It’s just a matter of if he’ll be around here. A potential top-10 pick, the Jets might have to trade up if they really want to draft Jones.
19) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Will Levis, QB, Kentucky
After last offseason, I’d be shocked if the Bucs don’t draft a quarterback. And if Will Levis remains on the board with this pick, it might be hard to pass on him.
While there are certain aspects of his game he must address, Levis has the tools to be great. In the right system and with the right mentor, we could see that greatness everyone’s been raving about this year.
20) Los Angeles Chargers: Darnell Washington, TE, Georgia
Justin Herbert’s shown that he likes throwing to pass catchers that can elevate and come down with his passes. So Darnell Washington should fit into that excitement.
MORE: Darnell Washington To Be Drafted Earlier Than Most Think?
An offense that’s thriving as of late adds a 6’7″, 270-pound nightmare to cover downfield.
21) Tennessee Titans: Peter Skoronski, OT, Northwestern
Mike Vrabel loves guys who will compete every single day, and Peter Skoronski is one of those guys. Questions about his size and reach surrounded Skoronski’s draft stock all year, but the guy refused to let that affect him.
If anything, he’s learned how to use it to his advantage. Longer defenders might think they have him beat, but Skoronski’s ability to reset in those situations and win is what sets him apart from many.
22) Washington Commanders: Clark Phillips III, CB, Utah
Don’t get it twisted, Clark Phillips III is a great prospect. Size might be his biggest concern, but his speed and sedulous work ethic put him in position to be great. Washington has a few corners with good size, but Phillips can bring a competitive edge with his attitude to the Commanders’ secondary.
23) New York Giants: Noah Sewell, LB, Oregon
From the minute Noah Sewell stepped foot in Eugene, it felt like he was destined to play in the NFL. A 6’3″, 250-pound missile for the Ducks’ defense, Sewell plays the game the right way. He’s a hard-nosed kid that wants to punish the ball carrier, a mentality that will help him win over fans in New York quickly.
24) Denver Broncos (From SF via MIA): Isaiah Foskey, EDGE, Notre Dame
Now that both Von Miller and Bradley Chubb are gone, Denver needs a reliable edge presence. While Isaiah Foskey has some work to do as an edge rusher, the upside in his game makes him tough to pass on here. Foskey’s hand usage and length give him leverage against his opponents, and he could remind Broncos fans of Miller and Chubb if he reaches his potential.
25) Baltimore Ravens: Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State
Jared Verse isn’t driving the conversation when it comes to edge rushers, but he’s got the potential to be the top dog in the group. At 6’4″, 250 pounds, he has a great frame with great athleticism to go with it. He’s been a dominant player for the Seminoles this year, and he’ll fit in well with the Ravens’ defense as well.
26) Cincinnati Bengals: O’Cyrus Torrence, G, Florida
Passing on Penei Sewell obviously didn’t hurt the Bengals too much, but it still wouldn’t hurt to protect Joe Burrow a little more. O’Cyrus Torrence will help improve Cincinnati’s offensive line thanks to the power in his frame that helps him anchor down and control defenders.
27) Dallas Cowboys: Josh Downs, WR, North Carolina
Dallas already has some talented pass catchers on the roster, but Josh Downs could help take this offense to the next level. Downs challenges defenses in many ways, and his ability to manipulate his defender with speed and route running will make Dak Prescott a happy man.
28) Kansas City Chiefs: Felix Anudike-Uzomah, EDGE, Kansas State
Kansas City doesn’t have to go far to secure their first-round pick in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft. Felix Anudike-Uzomah flew under the radar for most of the year, but fans will know his name soon enough. He’s worked hard to become a balanced player on the edge, and the Chiefs veterans will love what their new rookie brings to the defensive line.
29) Minnesota Vikings: BJ Ojulari, EDGE, LSU
Even if he doesn’t go in Round 1, BJ Ojulari won’t be on the board long. Minnesota needs a player who’s comfortable as a stand-up EDGE behind their veterans, and Ojulari can handle that.
MORE: Top 10 EDGEs in the 2023 NFL Draft
He has a great burst, which gives him an advantage over slower offensive linemen. Minnesota needs to get to the quarterback more, and the LSU star helps in that regard.
30) Buffalo Bills: Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas
I just can’t let the Bills pass on Bijan Robinson. It’s just impossible to do. The fact that a generational player falls this far in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft is absurd, but it’s not unlikely. It just has nothing to do with a player who does everything well, and the Bills’ offense could use a player like that running the football.
31) Philadelphia Eagles: Jahmyr Gibbs, RB, Alabama
If you watched Alabama play this year, two players stood out on offense. One was the first overall pick in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft, and the other was Jahmyr Gibbs.
Gibbs thrives in small spaces, which helps him break free for bigger gains. But he’s also an elite pass catcher, and at times, he was the only reliable threat in the passing game this year.
32) Houston Texans: Gervon Dexter, DT, Florida
Teams looking for someone that can close running lanes while simultaneously taking on double-teams should entertain the idea of adding Gervon Dexter to their roster. At 6’6″, 312 pounds, Dexter commands plenty of attention when playing at his best.
33) Pittsburgh Steelers (From CHI): Siaki Ika, DT, Baylor
Another player that is an imposing presence, Siaki Ika is another great fit for Mike Tomlin’s squad. He’s a strong two-gap player that’s tough to move, and the linebackers behind him will love what he does for their production.
34) Seattle Seahawks (From DEN): Devon Witherspoon, CB, Illinois
Illinois’ defense at times was overshadowed by Chase Brown’s running, but the Illini’s success can be attributed to Brown’s teammates. Devon Witherspoon played a huge role in that. He has the ball skills of a first-rounder and plays bigger than his 180-pound frame thanks to his ability to come downhill fast without hesitation.
35) New Orleans Saints: Jalin Hyatt, WR, Tennessee
Imagine the damage Chris Olave and Jalin Hyatt could do in the NFL. The Biletnikoff Award winner stresses opposing defenses thanks to his elite speed, and it would make life much easier for the Saints no matter who’s throwing him the football.
36) Los Angeles Rams: Anton Harrison, OT, Oklahoma
Anton Harrison‘s stock continues to rise thanks to a number of factors. Most importantly, his play down the stretch for Oklahoma. Harrison could sneak into the first round if a team really wants to take him, but the Rams get him on Day 2 in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft.
37) Arizona Cardinals: Emmanuel Forbes, CB, Mississippi State
College Football Network’s Cornerback of the Year balled out for his team this year. A long corner with great ball skills, teams typically avoided Emmanuel Forbes‘ side of the field whenever possible. Forbes has CB1 potential thanks to his 14 career interceptions, including six pick-sixes.
38) Indianapolis Colts: Dawand Jones, OT, Ohio State
With the Colts taking a shot on Richardson, they’ll need to ensure he has time to develop. Dawand Jones is a massive tackle that can help give his QB time to throw. While everyone’s focused on his college teammate, Johnson, Jones also plays at a high level.
39) Carolina Panthers: Nolan Smith, EDGE, Georgia
Carolina took a chance on a raw, long edge rusher with tremendous upside, and it all worked out for Brian Burns. So now they look to replicate that success with Nolan Smith. Injuries are a concern for Smith, but the elite tools are there to be utilized.
40) Atlanta Falcons: Rashee Rice, WR, SMU
With Desmond Ridder taking over the offense, he’ll need weapons to consistently hit downfield. Everyone knows what Kyle Pitts can do, but adding Rashee Rice opens up the field for everyone. Rice thrived despite the extra attention he faced this year, and now he can thrive at the next level with less help sent his way.
41) Jacksonville Jaguars: Jaelyn Duncan, OT, Maryland
After adding some talent at receiver, the Jaguars now address the need to protect their franchise quarterback. Jaelyn Duncan has great athleticism, and he just needs the right staff to help develop him into a consistent starter.
42) Cleveland Browns: Tuli Tuipulotu, DT, USC
Most of the comments said about the USC defense have been negative, but Tuli Tuipulotu has been the exception. Tuipulotu produced 20 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks in 2022, and that explosives production makes him a potentially great pick in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft.
43) Pittsburgh Steelers: Darnell Wright, OT, Tennessee
Darnell Wright thrived week in and week out protecting Hendon Hooker this year, and now he gets a chance to prove his worth at the next level. At 6’6″, 330 pounds, Wright brings great size and talent to the Steelers’ offense.
44) Green Bay Packers: John Michael Schmitz, C, Minnesota
The first center off the board in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft comes from P.J. Fleck’s squad. Minnesota had some struggles on the line, but John Michael Schmitz wasn’t a problem. Again, making Aaron Rodgers happy should be the top priority, and Green Bay keeps him satisfied with this pick.
45) Las Vegas Raiders: Andre Carter II, EDGE, Army
Army’s defense was a group that flew around the field this year, but it was tough to watch them without noticing Andre Carter II. At 6’6″, Carter’s size stood out, but it was his explosiveness and bend around the edge that drew most of the attention.
46) Detroit Lions: Brian Branch, DB, Alabama
Brian Branch gives the Lions another defensive back, but one that could move around and give them talent and depth at multiple positions. Whether that’s at safety or in the slot, Branch has shown promise wherever Alabama put him.
47) New England Patriots: Drew Sanders, LB, Arkansas
If your team misses out on Trenton Simpson, Plan B should be Drew Sanders. At 6’5″, 230 pounds, Sanders has the length and athleticism to thrive in the NFL. His decision to transfer to Arkansas was the best thing for his career, and now he joins a Patriots squad that can develop him even further.
48) New York Jets: Antonio Johnson, S, Texas A&M
Ahmad Gardner has one part of the secondary locked down, but the Jets still need to add some help. Antonio Johnson played multiple roles for Texas A&M’s defense, and New York should use him everywhere too.
49) Seattle Seahawks: Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State
A hamstring injury hampered Jaxon Smith-Njigba‘s draft stock immensely, and the former potential first-round pick might see his stock plummet. Seattle could use another weapon out wide, and a healthy Smith-Njigba is a major problem for any DB he faces.
50) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Eli Ricks, CB, Alabama
Eli Ricks didn’t start until the second half of the season, but the potential is there to see him go in Round 2 of this 2023 NFL Mock Draft. Great length allows Ricks to break up passes, and it’s a trait makes gives him an appealing pick here.
51) Tennessee Titans: Derick Hall, EDGE, Auburn
Through the drama surrounding Bryan Harsin, there were some positives to come out of the 2022 Auburn Tigers football season. Derick Hall knows how to play with leverage, and he’s developed well this year to thrive when the rest of the team didn’t.
52) Los Angeles Chargers: Cedric Tillman, WR, Tennessee
Are we overdoing it by adding another pass catcher? Maybe, but Justin Herbert won’t complain. Cedric Tillman struggled to stay healthy this year, but his ceiling makes him an exciting prospect.
53) New York Giants: Zach Evans, RB, Ole Miss
Saquon Barkley doesn’t appear to be the running back of the future for the Giants, but they find his replacement in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft. When healthy, Zach Evans is one of the most explosive players in college football. Whether it’s as a runner or a pass catcher, he can take any play to the house with his breakaway speed.
54) Washington Commanders: Henry To’oTo’o, LB, Alabama
While he doesn’t have the natural traits of some of the other linebackers in this class, Henry To’oTo’o brings great football intelligence to the next level. His ability to read an offense puts him ahead of most players when the play starts, and he has above-average traits that make him a great value pick for the Commanders.
55) Miami Dolphins: Andrew Vorhees, G, USC
USC’s offensive line drew plenty of scrutiny coming into the year, but it turned out to be unwarranted. Andrew Vorhees and the other veterans on the line allowed Caleb Williams to thrive by giving him plenty of time to throw, and now he gets to do that for Tua Tagovailoa.
56) Chicago Bears (From BAL): Cody Mauch, OT, NDSU
NDSU cranks out offensive linemen like the best of them, and Cody Mauch is the latest prospect to come out of Fargo. Mauch might project better at guard, but the Bears can give him a chance on the outside. He’s a punisher in the trenches, a tone that Fields and the offense want to set each week.
57) Cincinnati Bengals: Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah
Brant Kuithe commanded most of the attention coming into the year for Utah’s offense, but Dalton Kincaid quickly stole the spotlight. A natural pass catcher with great body control, Kincaid’s consistency will get him on the field quickly.
58) Carolina Panthers (From SF): Mazi Smith, DT, Michigan
After taking a shot on Nolan Smith, the Panthers add another player with tremendous upside. Mazi Smith is a freak that wreaks havoc thanks to his blend of power and athleticism.
59) Dallas Cowboys: JL Skinner, S, Boise State
At 6’4″, 220 pounds, JL Skinner has the potential to be a great strong safety at the next level. He’s an aggressive player that has good athleticism as well, making him a well-rounded safety. Skinner’s not getting enough attention so far, but he shouldn’t fall outside of Round 2.
60) Detroit Lions (From MIN): Zach Harrison, EDGE, Ohio State
Pairing an Ohio State Buckeye with a Michigan Wolverine wouldn’t normally go well, but it doesn’t matter in the NFL. Aidan Hutchinson is already thriving with the Lions, and Zach Harrison gives Detroit another freak on the edge that will be tough to block.
61) Kansas City Chiefs: Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College
Patrick Mahomes is used to having speed at wide receiver, and the Chiefs accomplish that even without using a first-round pick. Zay Flowers is used to being an under-the-radar prospect, and now he gets a chance to join an offense that will utilize his abilities more frequently.
62) Buffalo Bills: Luke Musgrave, TE, Oregon State
Oregon State’s worked their way up toward the top of the Pac-12, and guys like Luke Musgrave are a big reason why. The Beavers tight end is considered a first-round prospect by some, so this could be a quality pick if that becomes the consensus.
63) Philadelphia Eagles: Jordan Battle, S, Alabama
Philadelphia has a solid secondary, and adding youth to that group helps them build towards the future. Jordan Battle‘s stock has dipped lately, but he’s got first-round potential when everything’s going right. An experienced player, Battle brings a physical presence to the Eagles’ defense in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft.
64) Houston Texans: Matthew Bergeron, OT, Syracuse
Matthew Bergeron faced several explosive edge rushers this year, and he won a lot of battles against that competition. Bergeron brings good size and energy to the OT position but could also slide inside if needed.
65) Denver Broncos: Marvin Mims, WR, Oklahoma
All Marvin Mims did at Oklahoma was make big plays. Even when he’s been the only reliable pass catcher for the Sooners, no one’s found a way to consistently slow him down.
66) Chicago Bears: Sedrick Van Pran, C, Georgia
Sedrick Van Pran‘s a veteran player that brings a physical style of play paired with great leverage to the Bears’ offensive line.
67) Los Angeles Rams: Brandon Joseph, S, Notre Dame
Jalen Ramsey can’t be the only elite ball hawk on the Rams’ defense, and Brandon Joseph gives them another option in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft.
68) New Orleans Saints: Hendon Hooker, QB, Tennessee
New Orleans already drafted Hendon Hooker‘s teammate earlier, and this offense could be a great fit for the Volunteers’ star quarterback.
69) Arizona Cardinals: Tank Bigbsy, RB, Auburn
James Conner is a solid option for the Cardinals, but Tank Bigsby brings a higher ceiling for a back that can carry the offense for long stretches when needed.
70) Denver Broncos (From IND): Jarrett Patterson, C, Notre Dame
While Russell Wilson has things he must address, protecting him also must improve. Jarrett Patterson has experience at both tackle and center.
71) Atlanta Falcons: Garrett Williams, CB, Syracuse
Garrett Williams pushed Round 1 earlier this year and could be a great second option opposite of A.J. Terrell.
72) Jacksonville Jaguars: Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson, CB, TCU
Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson is going to the Shrine Bowl as a safety, which could give him the versatility to improve his draft stock.
73) Houston Texans (From CLE): Christopher Smith, S, Georgia
Georgia’s defense continues to thrive thanks to the veterans that return, and Christopher Smith has been a major contributor in getting the fresh faces up to speed.
74) Pittsburgh Steelers: Jaylon Jones, CB, Texas A&M
Jaylon Jones has first-round potential, which makes him a potential value pick in Round 3 of this 2023 NFL Mock Draft.
75) Green Bay Packers: Blake Freeland, OT, BYU
Blake Freeland stands 6’8″, and it’s easy to see why he dominates his matchups. He’s another quality player that can contribute to Green Bay’s offensive line.
76) Las Vegas Raiders: Tanner McKee, QB, Stanford
Talks of Derek Carr being replaced continue, but even if they aren’t true, Tanner McKee could be a solid future option for the Raiders.
77) New England Patriots (From CAR): DJ Turner, CB, Michigan
While he doesn’t have elite size for a corner, DJ Turner is a fierce competitor who’s sticky in coverage.
78) Detroit Lions: Jack Campbell, LB, Iowa
Jack Campbell is a tackling machine, who will make his future coaching staff happy. The Butkus Award winner is a great fit for the Lions.
79) Miami Dolphins (From NE): Sean Tucker, RB, Syracuse
Miami lost out on the Bijan Robinson and Jahmyr Gibbs sweepstakes, but they get a guy with tremendous potential in Sean Tucker.
80) Seattle Seahawks: Demani Richardson, S, Texas A&M
An under-the-radar prospect, Demani Richardson has the speed and athleticism to thrive in Seattle.
81) New York Jets: Jaquelin Roy, DT, LSU
With so much attention on Quinnen Williams, a guy like Jaquelin Roy should thrive if left in 1-on-1 matchups.
82) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Will McDonald IV, EDGE, Iowa State
Will McDonald IV’s return to campus didn’t hurt his draft stock, and he gives Tampa Bay an explosive player off the edge.
83) Los Angeles Chargers: Kyu Blu Kelly, CB, Stanford
Kyu Blu Kelly has good length and ball skills, and could thrive with teams worried about Derwin James.
84) Tennessee Titans: Tucker Kraft, TE, South Dakota State
Another player that’s considered a potential first-round prospect by some, Tucker Kraft is a dynamic threat for Tennessee’s offense.
85) Indianapolis Colts (From WAS): A.T. Perry, WR, Wake Forest
At 6’5″, A.T. Perry gives the Colts another great pass catcher for their new franchise QB to utilize in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft.
86) New York Giants: Jaren Hall, QB, BYU
Regardless of how you feel about Daniel Jones, he’s not the future long term. Jaren Hall is a competitor who’s an underrated passer in this class.
87) Miami Dolphins: Owen Pappoe, LB, Auburn
Another Auburn defender that thrived despite the team’s struggles, Owen Pappoe has the natural tools that NFL teams will love.
88) Carolina Panthers (From SF): Devon Achane, RB, Texas A&M
While he might not be Christian McCaffrey, Devon Achane could be a similar version to what the former Panther star running back provided for this offense.
89) Baltimore Ravens: SirVocea Dennis, LB, Pittsburgh
SirVocea Dennis is a multi-year starter that’s been a steady producer for the Panthers, and he’ll bring that same mentality to the Ravens’ roster.
90) Cincinnati Bengals: Calijah Kacey, DT, Pittsburgh
Calijah Kancey dominated Pitt’s schedule this year, and Cincinnati’s getting a steal by drafting him late in the third round.
91) Dallas Cowboys: Nick Broeker, OT, Ole Miss
Nick Broeker brings versatility to the Cowboys’ offense, thanks to his experience at tackle and guard.
92) Kansas City Chiefs: Zion Nelson, OT, Miami (FL)
Once considered a first-round prospect, Zion Nelson could still live up to that if the Chiefs can develop him.
93) Minnesota Vikings: Mekhi Garner, CB, LSU
Corner remains a position of need, and Mekhi Garner fills that need after a solid year against SEC competition.
94) Buffalo Bills: Lukas Van Ness, EDGE, Iowa
Buffalo takes another EDGE from Iowa. This time, they grab Lukas Van Ness, who has great potential as a third-round pick in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft.
95) Philadelphia Eagles: Zion Tupuola-Fetui, EDGE, Washington
An injury tanked his draft stock last year, but Zion Tupuloa-Fetui remains a solid prospect despite his setback.
96) Cleveland Browns: Jammie Robinson, S, Florida State
Jammie Robinson’s a physical safety who plays the game with a ton of confidence and isn’t afraid to send a message.
97) San Francisco 49ers: Julius Brents, CB, Kansas State
At 6’4″, Julius Brents has the size to be an appealing prospect, but he’s still raw where he needs some time to develop.
98) San Francisco 49ers: Olu Oluwatimi, C, Michigan
College Football Network’s Offensive Player of the Year, Olusegun Oluwatimi dominated the competition week in and week out for the Wolverines.
99) New York Giants (From SF): Riley Moss, CB, Iowa
A natural ball hawk, Riley Moss brings 25 passes defensed and 11 interceptions for his career to the Giants’ roster.
100) Houston Texans
K.J. Henry, EDGE, Clemson
101) Chicago Bears
Xavier Hutchinson, WR, Iowa State
102) Denver Broncos
DeMarvion Overshown, LB, Texas
103) New Orleans Saints
Zach Charbonnet, RB, UCLA
104) New England Patriots
Zacch Pickens, DT, South Carolina
105) Arizona Cardinals
Cooper Beebe, OT, Kansas State
106) Indianapolis Colts
Akeem Dent, S, Florida State
107) Jacksonville Jaguars
Sam LaPorta, TE, Iowa
108) Cleveland Browns
Steve Avila, C, TCU
109) Pittsburgh Steelers
Rakim Jarrett, WR, Maryland
110) Green Bay Packers
Mike Morris, EDGE, Michigan
111) Las Vegas Raiders
Carter Warren, OT, Pittsburgh
112) Carolina Panthers
Daiyan Henley, LB, Washington State
113) Atlanta Falcons
Kenny McIntosh, RB, Georgia
114) Minnesota Vikings
Emil Ekiyor Jr., G, Alabama
115) New England Patriots
Habakkuk Baldonado, EDGE, Pittsburgh
116) New York Jets
Parker Washington, WR, Penn State
117) Seattle Seahawks
Nick Hampton, EDGE, Appalachian State

Tykee Smith, S, Georgia
125) Baltimore Ravens

Dontayvion Wicks, WR, Virginia
129) Kansas City Chiefs
Keion White, EDGE, Georgia Tech
130) Buffalo Bills
