2023 NFL Seven-Round Mock Draft
2023 NFL Seven-Round Mock Draft

With the 2023 NFL draft right around the corner, there are a bunch of mock drafts flying around. Nobody truly knows how the draft will go. Do you think anybody expected the Chicago Bears to trade up and draft Mitch Trubisky? How about the 49ers and Trey Lance? There are always some picks that are head-scratchers, reaches, and trades that shock us all. However, it’s still nice to try and guess how it will all play out. Here is my official 2023 NFL seven-round mock draft.

How do you think your team did? Hit me up on Twitter and let me know.

2023 NFL Seven-Round Mock Draft

Round 1

The Panthers didn’t give up all that draft capital and D.J. Moore for nothing. They are on the clock and must make the nerve-racking choice of selecting their franchise quarterback. I still think that guy is C.J. Stroud. The top five picks have four quarterbacks and two edge-rushers. We will likely see a trade at some point in the first round, but this 2023 NFL seven-round mock draft is playing out as if no trades will be made.

The Raiders get a franchise that they hope can sit behind Jimmy G and become the new face of the franchise. The Eagles get a big-time player on both defense and offense. And three tight ends end up going in the first round, which goes to show how good this tight end class is.


via CHI
C.J. StroudQBOhio State
There are a bunch of rumors going around on which quarterback the Panthers like. They could even still end up trading this pick to the Ravens for Lamar Jackson. However, I like them to take C.J. Stroud, who will elevate the team immediately.

Bryce YoungQBAlabama
With Stroud off the board the Texans still need a franchise quarterback. There is still a chance they shock us all and take Will Anderson, but I think they stick with upgrading the quarterback position. They could take the project guy, Anthony Richardson, but Bryce Young seems like the safer pick. He steps in as the immediate starter.

Will AndersonEDGEAlabama
The Cardinals get one of the best overall players in the draft in Will Anderson. He'll slot in immediately and help this defense pressure opposing quarterbacks.

Will LevisQBKentucky
Colts could go Richardson here, but I think they want a choice that they are more confident in. Will Levis has had an impressive combine and the Colts will hope to see him look more like his sophomore year than last year. He can come in and either learn behind Foles/Minshew, or compete for the starting job right now. Colts now have a franchise QB with a huge arm.

via DEN
Tyree WilsonEDGETexas Tech
The Seahawks decide to avoid Jalen Carter and the legal troubles, and take a 6-6 edge rusher who could develop into one of the best edge rushers in the league.

Lionsvia LAR
Jalen CarterDIGeorgia
The Lions take a chance on Carter, who would likely already be drafted if not for the legal troubles. The defensive line with Aiden Hutchinson and now Jalen Carter is one to be feared.

Anthony RichardsonQBFlorida
The Raiders signed Jimmy G this offseason, which means there's no rush for Anthony Richardson. He can sit and learn and eventually take over as one of the best athletes at the quarterback position to hit the draft in years.

Quentin JohnstonWRTCU
The Falcons show Desmond Ridder that he'll get more time to prove he's a franchise guy by selecting the TCU wide receiver, Quentin Johnson. Johnson has an amazing size and speed combination.

via CAR
Paris Johnson, Jr.OTOhio State
The Bears bring in a guy that played with Justin Fields. He'll immediately slot into the tackle position and improve the offensive line. Bears are all in on Fields and building around him and this helps.

via NO
Brian BranchSAlabama
The Eagles have lost a lot of pieces on their defense from last year. To help them not take a step back they take one of the best tacklers in the draft in safety Brian Branch.

Peter SkoronskiOTNorthwestern
The Titans take Peter Skoronski, the best offensive lineman in this draft. He lacks the ideal size to play left tackle in the NFL, but it didn't seem to hurt him much in the Big 10 in college.

via CLE
Jaxon Smith-NjigbaWROhio State
A hamstring injury limited JSN to only three games last year. However, he's the best wide receiver prospect in the draft. Texans' first pick, Bryce Young, gets a new toy right away.

Broderick JonesOTGeorgia
While some people may view this as a reach, Broderick Jones is a massive dude. He excels at run blocking, but still had an 84.1 PFF grade pass blocking last year. The Jets will be able to utilize him to get Breece Hall moving the ball well, as well as to block Rodgers or Wilson.

Lukas Van NessEdgeIowa
Kirk Ferentz and Bill Belichek share the same agent. The Patriots need an edge rusher and Belichek will easily be able to get any info he needs. The Iowa Hawkeye stand out elevates the defensive line from Day 1.

Dalton KincaidTEUtah
The Packers may be entering somewhat of a rebuil with a looming Rodgers trade happening. However, they fill a big need at the tight end position with Dalton Kincaid. Kincaid is a game changing tight end with wide receiver speed in a tight end body.

Devon WitherspoonCBIllinois
The Commanders face Jalen Hurts, Dan Jones, and Dak Prescott twice a year. They look to limit all three with the best cornerback in the draft in Devon Witherspoon.

Joey Porter Jr.CBPenn State
Joey Porter, Sr. played for Pittsburgh. Joey Porter, Jr. stays in the area and follows his father's footsteps, all while filling a big need for the Steelers.

Christian GonzalezCBOregon
The Lions continue to improve their defense by adding cornerback Christian Gonzalez out of Oregon. He has the size and athleticism to line up anywhere in the defensive backfield.

Deonte BanksCBMaryland
The run on cornerbacks continues as Bucs improve their defensive backfield with Deonte Banks. Banks is a sticky cornerback who will make life difficult for opposing quarterbacks while frustrating wide receivers.

Calijah KanceyDIPitt
The Seahawks continue to revamp their defensive line adding Calijah Kancey. Kancey received a 92.4 pass rush grade in 2022 by PFF. He and Wilson are about to wreak havoc on the NFC West.

Jordan AddisonWRUSC
There are concerns about Jordan Addison's size. At 5'11 and only 173 pounds, it's understandable. However, he's an excellent route runner who never had trouble producing at USC.

Nolan SmithEDGEGeorgia
The Ravens need help on their defensive line and Nolan Smith falls perfectly to them. Ravens' OC Todd Monken, former Georgia OC, can vouch for his playmaking ability after watching him get after his offense in practice all last year.

Bryan BeeseDIClemson
There's a lot of different ways VIkings could approach this pick, but they take Bryan Beese. He'll command double teams on the interior of the line, as well as be a problem in the pass rush.

Myles MurphyEDClemson
It feels like it's been awhile since the Jaguars have picked this far back in the draft. They keep the tradition of taking Clemson players and select Myles Murphy, an edge rusher who charges O-linemen fast.

Zay FlowersWRBoston College
The Giants continue to build around Dan Jones by getting him a deep threat in Zay Flowers. Flowers is shifty and gives them a weopon they can use in many different ways.

Michael MayerTENotre Dame
After letting Dalton Schultz walk, the Cowboys replace him with Michael Mayer. Mayer is an excellent run blocker who is also a big target that can help move the chains.

Jack CampbellLBIowa
The Bills lost Tremaine Edmunds but replace him with Jack Campbell. Campbell is a true middle linebacker that Bills Mafia will love. He was the highest graded power 5 coverage linebacker.

Luke MusgraveTEOregon State
The Bengals add a tight end with a lot of upside in Musgrave. Despite an unlucky college career of energies, he's one of the fastest tight ends to come through the draft and will elevate the offense. Good luck covering Chase, Higgins, and Musgrave.

via SF via MIA via DEN
Mazi SmithDLMichigan
The Saints build up their defensive line by adding one of the strongest players in the draft in Mazi Smith. He's a nose tackle that they can build their defensive line around using him as a NT or DT.

Bijan RobinsonRBTexas
The free agency and trade market has shown the running back position is being valued lower by teams. The surprising slide of Bijan Robinson stops here. Hurts and Robinson are going to give defenses headaches.

Josh DownsWRNorth Carolina
The Chiefs have a big hole at wide receiver, despite how good Patrick Mahomes is. They get an elite route runner and hard-working receiver in Josh Downs who turns in a better year than JuJu did last year.

Miami Forefits their 2023 1st Round Pick as a result of attempted tampering with Tom Brady.

Round 2

As teams look to protect their quarterbacks, ten of the selections in the second round are offensive linemen. On the other side of the line, seven edge rushers are taken. Finally, it’s a round for the trenches with a couple of other selections in there.

One of my favorite selections this draft is the Chiefs taking Darnell Washington. No, Travis Kelce isn’t getting replaced. However, he is getting older, and Darnell Washington is an excellent prospect who can also help in the run-blocking game. The second round of the 2023 NFL seven-round mock draft was definitely interesting.


via CHI
Dawand JonesOTOhio State
Dawand Jones is an absolutely massive human being at 6’8” and 374 pounds. The Steelers struggled to run the ball effectively last year, and Jones received a high run grade. He'll help the line immediately.

Will McDonald IVEDGEIowa State
After revamping the offense in the first round, the Texans turn to the defense and take Will McDonald out of Iowa State. McDonald is an explosive player who will bulk up a bit and could become a great pass rusher.

Emmanuel ForbesCBMississippi State
With the top wide receivers off the board, the Cardinals focus on the defense and improving their backfield. Forbes is a 6-1 playmaker who can hang with the tall receivers.

Anton HarrisonOTOklahoma
The Colts got their QB of the future in Levis, now they secure a tackle to help protect him. Harrison is a natural who continues to get better with experience. He could be a solid offensive line piece for years to come.

Felix Anudike-UzomahEDGEKansas State
The Rams need a lot of positional help, but they get an edge rusher in Anudike-Uzomah. He has the potential to grow in to a focal point of the defense.

Seahawksvia DEN
O'Cyrus TorrenceGFlorida
The Seahawks continue a strong draft by taking the top prospect at guard in O'Cyrus Torrence. He's received good overall grades the past two years and helps in both the run and passing games.

Cam SmithCBSouth Carolina
After adding their QB of the future, the Raiders help their defense by taking Cam Smith. He doesn't have inspiring size or athleticism, but he's always where he needs to be.

The Panthers have a lot of needs, but they take BJ Ojulari out of LSU. Ojulari is a strong edge rusher who will help the Panthers in the trenches and be a building piece on their defense for years to come.

Steve AvilaGTCU
The Saints take an excellent pass-blocking guard in Steve Avila. Avila immediately helps in to help protect Derek Carr.

Jalin HyattWRTennessee
The Titans need receiver help and Jalin Hyatt can do that. He has elite speed and has really good hands. He just won the Biletnikoff Award and will help Tennessee's offense kick it up a notch.

Jetsvia CLE
Daiyan HenleyLBWashington State
A former wide receiver, Daiyan Henley is a very good athlete who can cover well. The Jets get a great coverage linebacker in a division that throws the ball a lot.

Luke WyplerCOhio State
The Jets continue rebuilding their offensive line by taking the best center in the draft - Luke Wypler.

Darnell WrightOTTennessee
In an unpredicted slide, teams are worried Darnell Wright's career will look more like the first three years. The Falcons feel otherwise, and graban OT with a ton of experience.

Adetomiwa AdebaworeEDGENorthwestern
The Packers get a guy they've met with multiple times in Adetomiwa Adebawore. He had one of the best combines and will help their defensive line immediately.

Matthew BergeronOTSyracuse
As of this mock draft the Patriots youngest OT is 27. Bergeron needs to up his run-blocking game, but he's a solid pass-blocker who has experience at both tackle positions.

Drew SandersLBArkansas
Washington adds to their linebacking corp with a linebacker that rushes the passer like an edge defender. In fact, Drew Sanders played that position at Alabama. He's a sideline to sideline guy who elevates an already good defense.

Sam LaPortaTEIowa
Last year the Lions traded away former Iowa tight end TJ Hockenson. Now they replace him with a younger version, also out of Iowa. Sam LaPorta led the team in receptions in every season but his first.

Tuli TuipulotuEDGEUSC
The Steelers select Tuli Tuipulotu, who will become a star playing opposite TJ Watt. Now the opposing offensive lines have two strong and quick pass-rushers to worry about.

Jahmyr GibbsRBAlabama
After meeting with Jahmyr Gibbs at the combine, the Bucs wanted to find a way to draft him. They do that in the second round and give them a running back with speed who is also a receiving threat.

Tyrique StevensonCB/b>Miami
The Dolphins let Tyrique Stevenson continue to play in Miami by drafting him. He became a true shut-down corner in Miami, something that's important in a division with Josh Allen and potentially Aaron Rodgers.

Joe TippmannCWisconsin
In two rounds with four picks, the Seattle Seahawks finish rebuilding their trenches by adding Joe Tippmann. Tippmann is very athletic for his size and will become an anchor of the o-line.

via BAL
Siaki IkaDIBaylor
From a Baylor Bear, to a Chicago Bear, Siaki Ika will help the Bears' d-line. He knows how to rush the passer and has a very quick first-step.

Nick HerbigEDGEWisconsin
The Chargers need edge-rushing help and they get that in Nick Herbig. He'll get to develop next to Bosa and Mack. Herbig can beat blocks in numerous amounts of ways.

Antonio JohnsonSTexas A&M
The Lions continue to revamp their defense by selecting Antonio Johnson. He's a 6-2 Safety who has a nose for the ball. He's run-stopping safety that will help in a run-heavy division.

Julius BrentsCBKansas State
The Jaguars grab one of the tallest cornerbacks in the draft in Julius Brents. He's 6-3 that has a great burst and a massive wingspan.

Kelee RingoCBGeorgia
The Giants get cornerback help in a monster cornerback that looks like a linebacker in Kelee Ringo. He has top-end speed and is a true athlete. He also has plenty of experience.

Tre'Vius Hodges-TomlinsonCBTCU/b>
The run on cornerbacks continues as the Cowboys select Tre-Vius Hodges-Tomlinson. He's a speedy corner that may be a little undersized, but rarely gets out of position.

Cody MauchOTND St
A former tight end, Cody Mauch is a mauling offensive lineman who will help protect Josh Allen.

Isaiah FoskeyEDGENotre Dame
The Bengals met with Isaiah Foskey at the combine and liked what they saw. He has a great size-speed combo and will help pressure opposing quarterbacks. He becomes a key piece in the playoffs against guys like Allen and Mahomes.

via SF via CAR
John Michael SchmitzCMinnesota
The Bears continue helping Fields with more offensive line help. This time in the form of John Michael Schmitz, an experienced center out of Minnesota.

Andre CarterEDGEArmy
The Eagles take Andre Carter, who is a very agile defensive lineman who can work in the rotation immediately.

Darnell WashingtonTEGeorgia
The Chiefs take the heir-apparent to Travis Kelce. While he is only 33 years-old, Darnell Washington also creates more options in the pass game for the Chiefs while also immediately giving them a run-blocker.

Round 3

nfl draft props contest

The Bears open this round, taking a player who’s coming off an ACL injury. The last defensive back they took coming off an injury was Eddie Jackson, and that worked out just fine. Wide receivers don’t hold as much value due to a saturated market, and a couple go on this round. In fact, Parker Washington ends up sticking around the same area as the Pittsburgh Steelers draft him. If you tuned in to the Old-Fashioned Football podcast, you’d remember Colby Dant was very high on Parker Washington.

Parker Washington may be the most fun pick in this round of the 2023 NFL seven-round mock draft. He could slot in and immediately start making plays.


Garrett WilliamsCBSyracuse
Garrett Williams falls due to his ACL injury. The last defensive back that the Bears took a chance on after a senior year injury was Eddie Jackson. That's worked out alright, and so will this.

Keeanu BentonDIWisconsin
The Texans continue adding strong guys to the defense with Keeanu Benton. He has a high motor and quick hands.

Jammie RobinsonSFlorida State
Arizona takes Jammie Robinson, an excellent tackler who can line up anywhere within the defensive backfield.

Broncosvia IND
DJ TurnerCBMichigan
With the Broncos first selection in the draft they take the fastest cornerback in the draft in DJ Turner.

Nathaniel DellWRHouston
With rumors swirling that teams are calling about Sutton and Jeudy, the Broncos add a playmaker at wide receiver who slipped in the draft a little. Nathaniel Dell has good speed and separation and can be used in a variety of creative ways.

Jordan BattleSAlabama
The Rams get a steal in Jordan Battle, one of the most reliable safeties in the draft class.

Tucker KraftTESouth Dakota State
The Raiders select Darren Waller's replacement in a 6-5, 254-pound tight end. Tucker Kraft excelled in the FCS and now will hope to keep excelling.

Derick HallEDAuburn
The Saints take a physical freak edge rusher in Derick Hall. He has excellent speed and power and moves well.

Hendon HookerQBTennessee
After drafting his top wideout, the plan all comes together as the Titans take Hendon Hooker. He'll stay in Tennessee as they immediately look for a trade partner for Malik Willis. Hooker sits behind Tannehill another year before become their franchise quarterback.

Texansvia CLE
Chandler ZavalaGNC State
The Texans continue a strong draft in general, adding NC State Guard Chandler Zavala. After only five career starts prior to this year, he only allowed four pressures on 422 pass-blocking snaps this season. He's just scratching the surface on his potential.

Rashee RiceWRSMU
The Browns may get one of the biggest steals at wide receiver this draft with Rashee Rice. Excellent body control, excellent footwork, and elite athleticism.

Clark Phillips IIICBUtah
While he doesn't possess the ideal size and speed combo, Phillips is a very high-graded cornerback who had six picks and four pass breakups last year.

Patriotsvia CAR
Tanner McKeeQBStanford
Can Bill Belichik help Tanner McKee become the next Tom Brady? Probably not. But the Patriots get a quarterback who's got good foot work and good accurcy.

via NE via MIA
Zach CharbonnetRBUCLA
Not sure if Cam Akers is the answer, The Rams select Zach Charbonnet to stay in his state and continues breaking tackles at the next level.

Darius RushCBSouth Carolina
The Packers help their defense in a division with Justin Jefferson, DJ Moore, and Amon-Ra St. Brown by selecting Darius Rush. Rush has length and speed and will be a good cover corner.

Coltsvia WAS
A.T. PerryWRWake Forest
The Colts need more receiving options and A.T. Perry gives them that. He's a long-limbed 6-4 receiver who went for double-digit touchdowns and over 1,000 yards in each of the last two seasons.

Parker WashingtonWRPenn State
The Steelers keep Parker Washington in the same area by selecting him in the third round. He may be one of the most underrated wide receivers in the draft. If he can find success with Sean Clifford, he'll find success with Kenny Pickett.

Dorian WilliamsLBTulane
The Lions take linebacker Dorian Williams. He has an 80-inch wingspan, and can help in the run and pass game.

Isaiah McGuireEDGEMissouri
The Bucs take Isaiah McGuire, who can play as a 3-4 OLB or defensive end. He's 6-4, and is a solid pass-rusher.

Michael WilsonWRStanford
The Seahawks don't have a ton of proven receiving options past Metcalf and Lockett. They take Michael Wilson to help. He's had injury issues, but he's a good receiver who could immediately help out.

Tank BigsbyRBAuburn
The Dolphins have several running backs. None of them with the talent of Tank Bigsby. He can become the immediate every-down back.

Jaylon JonesCBTexas A&M
The Chargers take a strong corner in Jaylo Jones. He's a three-year starter who excels in man coverage.

Cedric TillmanWRTennessee
Yes, the Ravens just signed Odel Beckham, Jr. However, taking Cedric TIllman gives them a 6-3 physical receiver who only dropped five of his 104 career catchable targets.

Tyler ScottWRCincinnati
The Vikings select a receiver to fill the void left from Adam Thielen leaving. Tyler Scott is a former running back. He's 5-10 and just scratching the surface of his wide receiver potential.

Moro OjomoDITexas
The Jags continue to get better on defense by selecting Moro Ojomo. He's shorter than most DT's but has long arms and can use his size for leverage.

Kendre MillerRB/b>TCU
Will Saquon Barkley be around more than one more year? It's hard to say, but this gives the Giants flexibility. Kendre Miller averaged 6.7 yards per carry on his career that has the size, speed, and burst to handle a full workload in the league.

Roschon JohnsonRBTexas
With a couple running backs off the board the past ten picks, the Cowboys go and get a replacement for Zeke. Roschon Johnson gets to stay in his home state of Texas. He was stuck behind Bijan Robinson, but has the talent to be a short-yardage back, and eventually could take over.

Trenton SimpsonLBClemson
The Bills take linebacker Trenton Simpson. He has all the intangibles to be an every down linebacker who can cover tight ends really well.

Sydney BrownSIllinois
The Bengals take Syndey Brown, an excellent safety out of Illinois. He had 8 pass breakups, and six interceptions in 2022 while only allowing one touchdown.

via SF
Jartavius MartinCBIllinois
The Panthers take Jartavius Martin, who can play cornerback, safety, or slot. He's one of the best in this class against the run, which is important in this division.

DeMarvion OvershownLBTexas
The Eagles select DeMarvion Overshown, who will likely play on the weak-side. He's got a very long build. He's very athletic and was a former safety.

Gervon Dexter Sr.DIFlorida
The Chiefs take Gervon Dexter, Sr. He's a 310-pounder with explosiveness. He has raw talent and will need developed, but the Chiefs are a spot he can develop.

CardinalsComp Pick
Devon AchaneRBTexas A&M
The Cardinals take Devon Achane, who slides a little due to his small size. Still, he has game-changing speed and will be able to be used in many different ways alongside Kyler Murray.

CommandersComp Pick
Blake FreelandOTBYU
The Commanders take an OT that is getting slept on a bit in Blake Freeland. He was graded a 90.7 in pass blocking and 87.9 in run blocking.

BrownsComp Pick
Anthony JohnsonSIowa State
The Browns take Anthony Johnson to fill their need at safety. He switched from cornerback to safety just last year and it paid off. He could be a starting safety in the NFL for years to come.

49ersComp Pick
Juice ScruggsCPenn State
The 49ers are knowing for taking a player they like even if some consider it a reach. They've liked Juice Scruggs since they met with him at the combine. The 6-3 center may start as a depth piece, but will eventually anchor this line.

Raidersvia KC Special Comp Pick
Tyler SteenOTAlabama
The Raiders take a four-year starter in Tyler Steen. He's 6-6 and could end up playing tackle in the NFL, but he will likely start at guard and excel as a pass-protecting guard.

49ersComp Pick
Marvin MimsWROklahoma
The 49ers take wide receiver Marvin Mims out of Oklahoma. He's an athlete who averaged 19.5 yards per catch in college. Deebo, Aiyuk, and Mims could create an issue for defenses.

49ersComp Pick
Eli RicksCBAlabama
Eli Ricks slides due to injury concerns. The 49ers stop the slide at the end of the third, taking the chance that California kid can overcome the injury history. He's got excellent technical skills and is going to be a good press cornerback.

Round 4

The deeper you get into the draft, the tougher it is to predict. So how did I associate teams with the picks I gave them? It was based on team needs, PFF grades, projected player rankings, and taking into account which players teams visited with.

The Patriots add their second Iowa Hawkeye player in, Riley Moss, at the end of this round. The Bills beef up their running back room now that Devin Singletary is gone. The Browns and Panthers also make intriguing running back choices.


Karl BrooksEDBowling Green
The Bears get an edge rushing steal in Karl Brooks. It was either too early or not the right fit, but the Michigan native now heads to Illinois to help a defensive line that is the weak spot in this defense.

Andrew VorhesGUSC
The Texans take guard Andrew Vorhees. He's played 400 snaps at each of left tackle, left guard, and right guard. He's a plug and play who can both start and provide excellent depth.

Wanya MorrisOTOklahoma
The Cardinals take tackle Wanya Morris. He's got the size and skills, and should continue to develop just as he did in college.

K.J. HenryEDTulane
The Colts take edge rusher K.J. Henry out of Tennessee. He's a former five-star recruit who just started showing why this last fall.

Patriotsvia LAR
Trey PalmerWRNebraska
The Patriots take Trey Palmer, wide receiver out of Nebraska. He had 1,043 yards last season in a break-out year. That included nine touchdowns and 14.7 yards per catch.

Byron YoungEDTennessee
The Broncos take a project edge rusher in Byron Young out of Tennessee. He has all the traits needed to develop into a fast pass rusher with a 4.40 40-yard dash.

Noah SewellLBOregon
The Raiders take Penei Sewell's brother, Noah Sewell, linebacker out of Oregon. He fits the tough Raider defender and is just getting started at only 20 yars old.

Falconsvia TEN
Keion WhiteEDGeorgia Tech
The Falcons take edge rusher Keion White. He's got massive size but hasn't been able to put everything together quite yet. He'll need to learn quick, but the upside is too hard to pass up.

Tyjae SpearsRBTulane
The Browns have Nick Chubb. Now they have an insurance policy in Tyjae Spears who can plug right in to spell Chubb and in event of an injury.

Ji'Ayir BrownSPenn State
The Jets take Ji'Ayir Brown, a safety they met with at the combine. He is a ball-hawk safety who needs to keep developing. He falls in a good spot on a trending upward defense.

Jaquelin RoyDILSU
The Falcons add another piece on their defensive line in Jaquelin Roy. He's got all the physical traits and can play all along the d-line.

DeWayne McBrideRBUAB
The Panthers take DeWayne McBride, an excellent RB out of UAB. He and Miles Sanders instantly become of the best RB-duos in the league.

Cory TriceCBPurdue
The Saints take CB Cory Trice, who may be a little bit of a project. At 6-3, he's built like a linebacker. However, he's an excellent press corner who allowed only one catch on 88 press snaps this past season.

JL SkinnerSBoise State
The Packers take safety JL Skinner to play either opposite Adrian Amos or in the slot cornerback spot. Opposing quarterbacks are going to have a hard time finding holes in this defense.

Zack KuntzTEOld Dominion
The Patriots take a flier on the combine standout Zack Kuntz. He has a ton of raw potential and could develop into the next great Patriots tight end.

Luke SchoonmakerTEMichigan
The Commanders also take a tight end by selecting Luke Schoonmaker. Unlike the previous selection of Kuntz, Schoonmaker is ready an NFL-ready tight end that is big and has underrated speed.

Vikingsvia DET
Viliami FehokoEDGESan Jose State
The Vikings take Edge rusher Viliami Fehoko. Despite not being as well known of a name among the top edge rushers, he was nearly unblockable last year. He had 66 pressures and a 90.9 overall grade from PFF. That's important when you play a guy named Justin Fields twice a year.

Ivan Pace Jr.LBCincinnati
The Steelers select Ivan Pace, Jr. He's a very small linebacker, but plays tough and has a nose for the football. Tomlin will find creative ways to use him to make big plays.

Jaguarsvia TB
Jaelyn DuncanOTMaryland
Jaelyn Duncan has great footwork, but his struggles with his hands and allowing 28 pressures this fall causes him to slide in the draft. The Jags stop that slide in hopes they can help develop him into a more consistent pass-blocker.

Chiefsvia MIA
Zach HarrisonEDGEOhio State
The Chiefs add Zach Harrison, a 6-5 edge rusher who has all the physical gifts needed. He'll be a role player that could develop into a nice edge rusher.

Kyu Blu KellyCBStanford
The Seahawks take Kyu Blu Kelly. Kelly comes with four years of starting experience and a really high football IQ.

Christopher SmithSGeorgia
The Ravens take safety Christopher Smith. New offensive coordinator Todd Monken tells the top brass that his offense had to practice against this guy weekly. He's a play-maker as a deep safety.

Kobie TurnerDIWake Forest
The Chargers take Kobie Turner for their interior defensive line. Turner had a dominant season for Wake Forest and the Chargers are happy he's still here in the draft. He'll need to bulk up, but the Chargers continue to improve on defense with this pick.

Brownsvia MIN
Zacch PickensDISouth Carolina
If you take only Zacch Pickens top plays and pair that with his athleticism, he's one of the best d-lineman in the draft. But inconsistencies bring him back to a fourth-rounder that could develop more.

Ronnie HickmanSOhio State
Safety Ronnie Hickman had a breakout campaign in 2022. PFF gave him an 88.9 coverage grade last year.

Henry To'oTo'oLBAlabama
With room to develop, the Giants take Henry To'oTo'o, a 6-1 linebacker who is known for his run stopping abilities.

Kayshon BoutteWRLSU
The Cowboys get a receiver with high upside in Kayshon Boutte. This is a guy who had 308 yards in a game as a true freshman. Last year he was coming off ankle surgery and seemed to take a step back. Still, the Cowboys are looking for the guy that had nine touchdowns in 2021.

Sean TuckerRBSyracuse
The Bills take running back Sean Tucker. Damien Harris isn't the answer and James Cook isn't an every-down back. Tucker has explosiveness who will serve as an excellent two-down back.

Keondre CoburnDITexas
The Bengals continue to improve their defensive line with Keondre Coburn. He uses his leverage as a nose tackle and has good talent to develop.

via SF
Jonathan MingoWRMississippi
Panthers add youth to their receiving corps with Jonathan Mingo. He sometimes looks like he's built like a running back, but he has improved his hands and route running over his college years. Panthers met with him at the combine, and now draft him.

via Phi
Jayden ReedWRMichigan State
The Bears have already shown interest in Jayden Reed by meeting with him. Now they draft him. Reed will serve as a security if Mooney or Claypool don't stick around or work out. Reed is a polished route runner who can create seperation.

Braeden DanielsOTMaryland
The Chiefs take offensive tackle Braeden Daniels. He's allowed only one sack in over almost 1000 pass-block snaps over the last two years.

PatriotsComp Pick
Riley MossCBIowa
The Patriots add another Iowa Hawkeye in Riley Moss. Moss is a reliable cornerback who has played in the past four seasons.

Round 5

Will the Jets land Aaron Rodgers? What once seemed like a sure thing doesn’t seem sure at all anymore. It is more confusing than anything else. Still, it’s clear they are ready to move on from Zach Wilson. They wait until the fifth round to address quarterback but take one they think could develop behind Rodgers.

That’s not the only quarterback taken in this round. Is Sam Howell the answer for Washington? That probably depends on the question. However, they take a quarterback for depth who could end up out-performing him at some point. The Ravens also take a quarterback that their offensive coordinator is very familiar with.


Chase BrownRBIllinois
Brown falling to the Bears after his college career for Illinois would be a perfect storm. He's explosive and will work into a rotation running the ball with Herbert, Foreman, Fields. He will need to clean up his fumbles, but in the fifth round, the Bears get a guy that could be a game changer.

Billsvia AZ
Brandon JosephSNotre Dame
The Bills take a safety in Brandon Joseph that can line up in the slot, deep, and at cornerback. He's a ball-hawk who gets even better when placed on a strong Bills defense.

Olusegun OluwatimiCMichigan
The strong run-blocking center Olusegun Oluwatimi is too good for the Colts to pass up.

Byron YoungDIAlabama
No it's not a typo, there are two Byron Young's in the draft and the Broncos take them both. This one is an interior defensive lineman who is really good against the run.

Brownsvia LAR
Colby WoodenEDGEAuburn
Colby Wooden falls some due to his size. He played on the interior at Auburn but is only 278 pounds. The Browns will find a way to use him either way.

Daniel ScottSCalifornia
Raiders take Daniel Scott, a safety out of California who will look to recap his 2021 season where he was graded at an 81.8 by PFF

Cam JonesLBIndiana
Cam Jones took a big step forward last season, even though he only played five games due to injury. He'll look to keep improving and developing with the Browns.

Jake HaenerQBFresno State
The push to trade for Rodgers shows the Jets are ready to move on from Zach Wilson. Haener can sit and develop. He had a 71.4% completion percentage last year and 20 touchdowns to only three interceptions.

Raidersvia ATL
Nick SaldiveriOTOld Dominion
Raiders take Nick Saldiveri, another offensive tackle that could also play guard. They build their offensive line through versatility.

Owen PappoeLBAuburn
Owen Pappoe is another linebacker that took a big step forward last year. The Panthers use their last pick on him, hoping he can keep taking steps forward.

Xavier HutchinsonWRIowa State
Not a lot of emphasis on the wide receivers in this draft class causes Hutchinson to fall. Michael Thomas has issues staying healthy and behind Olave, the options are limited. Hutchinson just had an 1170 yard season at Iowa State and could become a playmaker in the NFL.

Yasir AbdullahEDGELouisville
Abdullah falls due to his size. However, he still scored a very high pass-rushing grade from PFF and the Titans take a chance

via NE via BAL
Mike MorrisEDGEMichigan
Morris takes a fall from other mocks, but is slotted in right around his PFF ranking. At 6-5 he's a big guy, but he struggles against the run. He'll need to develop his technique so tight ends and tackles don't take advantage of him.

Charlie JonesWRPurdue
Another victim of the lack of wide receivers going off the board, Charlie Jones falls to fifth round. Still, Packers get a player who just went for 1361 yards and 12 touchdowns. He has a low drop rate as well.

Clayton TuneQBHouston
Is Sam Howell the answer for Washington? We have yet to see. They take Clayton Tune for some insurance. He is an excellent passer who had a 79.5% adjusted completion percentage, good for 7th overall in the NCAA.

Seahawksvia PIT
Deuce VaughnRBKansas State
The Mugsy Bogues of football, Deuce Vaughn is still only 5-5. However, he runs hard and can be used in a variety of creative ways. His size also didn't stop him for running for almost 3000 yards and 27 touchdowns the past two years.

Yaya DiabyEDGELouisville
Yaya Diaby is coming off a 10 sack season. He'll work into rotation for a strong Lions' defensive line.

Carter WarrenOTPittsburgh
The 6-5 tackle has long arms and has improved each season. His stock drops after tearing his meniscus last year.

Emil Ekiyor Jr.GAlabama
The Seahawks only had five interior offensive lineman on their roster going into the draft. They add their third in the draft in Emil Ekiyor, who allowed 0 sacks on 414 pass block snaps last year.

49ersvia MIA
Davis AllenTEClemson
George Kittle isn't getting replaced. However, the 49ers were impressed after meeting with Davis Allen at the combine. He's 6-6 and has excellent ball skills, catching 17 of his 20 contested targets in the last two seasons.

Zach EvansRBMIssissippi
We never got a chance to see Zach Evans start a full season. However, he averaged 6.9 yards per carry, and could provide the Chargers a game plan if Ekeler leaves.

Stetson BennettQBGeorgia
Maybe it's a reach, but Stetson Bennett gets reunited with his offensive coordinator from last year, and the Ravens suddenly have leverage in the Lamar Jackson drama.

Jakorian BennettCBMaryland
The Vikings take a speedy cornerback in Jakorian Bennett.

Falconsvia JAX
Jose RamirezEDGEEastern Michigan
Undersized, Jose Ramirez falls to the Falcons in the fifth round. Still, he's an excellent pass rusher.

Jaxson KirklandGWashington
Jaxson Kirkland had an 82.6 pass-blocking grade last season per PFF. He's 6-7 and could win a starting job his rookie year.

Texansvia DAL
Josh WhyleTECincinnati
Josh Whyle is a 6-6 tight end who could develop into a good redzone target and run blocker.

Coltsvia BUF
Starling ThomasCBUAB
Colts met with Starling Thomas at his pro day. They love his speed, as he's one of the fastest cornerbacks in this draft class.

Keaton MitchellRBEast Carolina
With not knowing how many good seasons Joe Mixon has left, the Bengals take Keaton Mitchell. He's a burner and a very dynamic back that will be a great gadget player for them.

Jerrod ClarkDICoastal Carolina
Jerrod Clark is a big dude on the defensive line that had 22 quarterback hurries in just 281 pass rush snaps last year.

Saintsvia PHI/i>
Dorian Thompson-RobinsonQBUCLA
The Saints can let Dorian Thompson-Robinson develop behind Carr. Last year he threw for 3159 yards and 27 touchdowns.

Rashad Torrence IIEDGEFlorida
The Chiefs take safety Rashad Torrence. He had a 76.1 coverage grade last year from PFF.

Comp Pick
Kei'Trel ClarkCBLouisville
After standing out at the Shrine Bowl, Kei'Trel Clark goes to the Rams. He plays with a chip on his shoulder and being drafted this late is only going to help that narrative.

CardinalsComp Pick
Jalen RedmondDIOklahoma
Jalen Redmond will work into the rotation as a run-stopping defensive lineman.

CowboysComp Pick
Brodric MartinDIWestern Kentucky
Cowboys add the towering 6-5, 330-pound defensive tackle Brodric Martin

PackersComp Pick
Jonah TavaiDISan Diego State
Jonah Tavai is only 6 foot, but he is a really well-rounded defensive lineman.

Comp Pick
Atonio MafiGUCLA
The Rams take AtonioMafi to help their offensive line. He's a good run-blocker who will look to develop his pass-blocking skills in the NFL.

GiantsComp Pick
Payne DurhamTEPurdue
Maybe it doesn't make sense after the Waller trade and Bellinger looking decent last year. However, the Giants love Payne Durham, and they add him in the 5th with a comp pick.

49ersComp Pick
Marte MapuSSacramento State
The 49ers take Marte Mapu who is an interesting prospect. He's a 6-3, 216-pound safety that could end up being played at linebacker. He's an excellent run-stopper no matter what spot he plays in.

RaidersComp Pick
Tyler LacyEDOregon State
The Raiders take Tyler Lacy out of Oklahoma State to help along the defensive line. Lacy will look to elevate his pass-rush technique but is already a good run-stopper.

BuccaneersComp Pick
Jake AndrewsCTroy
Bucs don't have a lot of depth at center or guard. Drafting Jake Andrews changes that as he has experience playing both.

ColtsComp Pick
Ventrell MillerLBFlorida
The Colts met with Ventrell Miller at his pro day and liked what they saw. After a season-ending injury in 2021 he had a nice bounce back year last year.

Comp Pick
Jalen Moreno-CropperWRFresno State
The Rams select Jalen Moreno-Cropper, a nice route runner who is a little undersized. McVay will find a role for him.

Round 6

On the top of quarterbacks in the fifth round, the sixth round of the 2023 NFL seven-round mock draft features the Rams taking a quarterback that could sit and learn behind Matt Stafford. The Cowboys get a little insurance in case Dak gets hurt again, and Cooper Rush can’t save the day.

This is a mixed bag of picks, but there were some surprisingly good values still in the sixth round. Keep in mind the sixth and seven-rounders sometimes have to fight to make rosters. They could end up on the practice squad, but there’s a good handful here that will make the 53-man roster.


Chiefsvia MIA via CHI
Israel AbanikandaRBPitt
The Chiefs take Israel Abanikanda, a project speed back who needs some more development time. In a couple years, this pick could be looked back on as a steal.

Buccaneersvia HOU
Aidan O'ConnellQBPurdue
Matt Stafford is getting older and the Rams decide to take a quarterback with some upside to learn from him. Aidan O'Connell didn't have a great year last year. However, the year before he graded out at 90.6 per PFF. They'll look to tap into that O'Connell.

Bryce Ford-WheatonWRWEst Virginia
The Cardinals take Bryce Ford-Wheaton, a 6-4 wide receiver who tied for fourth with 18 contested catches last year.

Buccaneersvia IND
Trey DeanSFlorida
Bucs take 6-2 safety Trey Dean. Dean has lined up all over the defensive backfield. Last year he had six forced incompletions.

Jacob SladeDIMichigan State
Rams take Jacob Slade, a defensive lineman from Michigan State. He had a much better year in 2021, however, with time he could develop into a nice rotational piece.

Lionsvia DEN
Ricky StrombergCArkansas
The Lions take Ricky Stromberg to initially back up Frank Ragnow. Stromberg graded out at 82.4 overall per PFF and provides much needed depth.

Patriotsvia LV
Jason Taylor IISOklahoma State
The Patriots take Jason Taylor II. Last year he had six interceptions and 80 tackles in 13 games.

Jaguarsvia NYJ
Jarrett PattersonGNotre Dame
Jags take Jarrett Patterson. He's a 6-5 lineman who has experience at guard and center.

Titansvia ATL
Eric GrayRBOklahoma
The Titans take running back Eric Gray out of Oklahoma. Nobody is saying Derrick Henry is losing his job, but Gray will be able to spell him and is just coming off a 1374 yard, 11 touchdown season.

Patriotsvia CAR
Anthony BradfordGLSU
The Patriots take Anthony Bradford, who has played guard and tackle over the last two years. He's gotten better each year as well.

Texansvia NO
Evan HullRBNorthwestern
The Texans take Evan Hull out of Northwestern who will look to win a backup job behind Dameon Pierce.

Jaren HallQBBYU
Matthew Stafford isn't getting any younger. The Rams take Jaren Hall to sit behind him and develop. He's got a strong arm and threw for 3162 yards, and 31 touchdowns last year. Over his last two years starting he has an average of 8.6 yards per pass attempt.

Will MalloryTEMiami
Browns take Will Mallory, a 6-4 tight end who has averaged over 11 yards a reception in each of the last three years.

via GB
Desjuan JohnsonDIToledo
The Rams take Desjuan Johnson who has an 86.2 pass-rush grade and 88.1 run-defense grade per PFF.

Troy BrownLBTroy
The Patriots take Troy Brown, hoping to tap in to his 2021 season where he was much better against the run and in pass coverage.

Nick BroekerGMississippi
Commanders take Nick Broeker, who has experience at left tackle and left guard. He allowed 0 sacks last year in 472 pass-block snaps.

Lionsvia LAR
Alex AustinCBOregon State
Lions take another cornerback in Alex Austin. After trading Odukah, they've now drafted two new cornerbacks to compete.

Broncosvia PIT
Ryan HayesOTMichigan
Broncos take Ryan Hayes, a left tackle that allowed - sacks in 357 pass-blocking snaps this year.

Cameron LatuTEAlabama
Bucs take tight end Cameron Latu, a 6-4 tight end with 12 drops in the last two seasons.

Ochaun MathisEDNebraska
In only their third pick of this draft, the Dolphins take Ochaun Mathis, an edge rusher from Nebraska who will look to regain his 2020 form when he had 9 sacks in 10 games.

Malik CunninghamQBLouisville
The Seahawks draft quarterback Malik Cunningham. Even though he was taken in the USFL college draft, his USFL time will have to wait as he sits and learns behind Geno Smith.

Kenny McIntoshRBGeorgia
The Ravens continue adding pieces that Todd Monken is familiar with. This time in Georgia running back Kenny McIntosh. He averaged over 5 yards a carry through three years and can catch out of the backfield, as shown by his 42 receptions last year. McIntosh was third among runnin gbacks in yards per route run.

Jordan McFaddenOTClemson
The Chargers take Jordan McFadden as a depth piece at the tackle position. He was much better in both 2021 and 2020 than last year. However, he'll get to work on his technique while providing much needed depth.

Texansvia MIN
Mekhi BlackmonCBUSC
The Texans take Mekhi Blackmon. He doesn't jump off the page with athleticism, but he's an excellent coverage corner who took a big step forward last year.

Brenton StrangeTEPenn State
The Jags take tight end Brenton Strange out of Penn State. He's 6-4 and could develop into a nice red-zone target. He had five touchdowns last year in only 32 receptions.

Texansvia NYG
Rejzohn WrightCBOregon State
The Texans take Rejzohn Wright, a cornerback out of Oregon State. He will be a special teams contributor while providing more depth at the corner position.

Raidersvia DAL
Rakim JarrettWRMaryland
The Raiders take Rakim Jarrett out of Maryland. He's a 6-0 receiver with some speed and good upside. He has played most of his last two years in the slot.

Ronnie BellWRMichigan
The Bills take receiver Ronnie Bell. In his first full season of playing at Michigan he showed flashes of upside with 62 receptions for 82 yards. In 21 games, his average yards per reception has been above 14.

Cameron BrownCBOhio State
Cornerback Cameron Brown out of Ohio State lands with the Bengals to help their defensive backfield. He'll also be able to contribute on special teams.

DJ DaleDIAlabama
The Jets take DJ Dale. After playing snaps in both the A gap and B gap last year, he had 3 sacks and 10 hurries. He wins when pass rushing and could develop into a nice rotational piece.

Jaguarsvia PHI
Asim RichardsOTNorth Carolina
The Jags add depth to the tackle position with Asim Richards. He played 1050 snaps last year, all of them at left tackle.

Giantsvia KC
Quindell JohnsonSMemphis
The Giants take Quindell Johnson, safety out of Memphis. This division runs the ball a lot and he's known as a run-stopping safety.

PatriotsComp Pick
Michael TurkPOklahoma
The Patriots take Michael Turk, the first punter taken in the draft. They met with Turk and liked what they saw.

VikingsComp Pick
Tyson BagentQBShepherd
The Vikings take project quarterback Tyson Bagent. In the sixth round, he doesn't need to be a top performer right now, as he'll sit behind Cousins and develop. Bagent threw for 9,580 yards and 94 touchdowns to only 15 interceptions in the last two years alone. He has 17,034 career yards and 159 passing touchdowns.

CowboysComp Pick
Max DugganQBTCU
The Cowboys take Max Duggan. They met with him earlier this year and he seems like the type of quarterback Kellen Moore would love. He can develop behind Dak in prep for bringing his big-play potential to the Cowboys should Dak get hurt. Last year he threw 32 touchdowns and led TCU to a historic season.

CardinalsComp Pick
Carrington ValentineCBKentucky
Despite not being the most productive corner, Carrington Valentine has garnered interest from teams in the late rounds. The Cardinals take him here towards the end of the 6th.

RaidersComp Pick
Mekhi GarnerCBLSU
The Raiders take Mekhi Garner out of LSU. The 6-2 cornerback is a long guy that can help cover bigger receivers. He allowed only an 83.6 passer rating last year.

CommandersComp Pick
Devonnsha MaxwellDIChattanooga
The Commanders take defensive lineman Devonnsha Maxwell. It will be interesting to see how he performs at the NFL level after having 23 sacks and 36 QB hurries in the last two years.

49ersComp Pick
Lonnie PhelpsEDKansas
The 49ers take Lonnie Phelps out of Kansas. The 6-2 edge rusher has some burst. He had 8 sacks and 22 hurries in 2022 and 10 sacks and 18 hurries in 2021.

Brett NeilonCUSC
The Chiefs currently have one of the thinnest offensive lines as far as depth goes. Brett Neilon allowed 0 sacks in each of the last two years in playing over 1000 pass-blocking snaps.

Round 7

It’s hard to determine which round is harder to predict in this 2023 NFL seven-round mock draft. The first is hard because everybody thinks they know how it’s going to go, and it never seems to go exactly like that. The seventh is a bit of a dart throw. This is used for cleanup on players that could have an upside. Teams are willing to take a risk on a seventh-rounder because they aren’t investing a whole lot. That ended up seeing nine offensive tackles get drafted as insurance.


via CHI
McClendon CurtisOTChattanooga
The Bears add more depth to the offensive tackle positions in McClendon Curtis. Curtis was graded with a 90.0 pass block grade per PFF and 83.3 overall. He's a developmental piece but could be a steal.

Eaglesvia HOU via MIN
Anthony JohnsonCBVirginia
The Eagles take Anthony Johnson out of Virginia, who had an 84.4 coverage grade last year after allowing 0 touchdowns and a 53.3 passer rating.

Raidersvia AZ
Dante StillsDIWest Virginia
The Raiders add some defensive line depth in Dante Stills, who is an excellent run stopper, but also racked up 5 sacks, 4 quarterback hits, and 21 hurries last season.

Jon Gaines IIGUCLA
The Colts take Jon Gaines II out of UCLA who can play guard and center. He took a big step forward last year and could develop into a solid piece along the offensive line.

49ersvia DEN
Alex PalczewskiOTIlinois
The 49ers take Alex Palczewski, a 6-6 tackle out of Illinois who excels at run blocking.

Trevor ReidOTLouisville
The Rams take Trevor Reid, a 6-5 offensive tackle. He had a better year in 2021, but will look to develop at the next level.

Falconsvia LV
Mikel JonesLBSyracuse
Mikel Jones is a productive linebacker who has played over 2000 snaps combined the past three seasons. He will likely start as a special teams contributor while he develops his game. He also had an 88.1 pass rush grade from PFF.

Dontayvion WicksLBVirginia
Dontayvion Wicks didn't have a great year last year. However, in 2021 he had 1201 receiving yards and 9 touchdowns while averaging 21.1 yards a reception. Those numbers are worth chasing in the seventh round and the Falcons grab him up.

Jaguarsvia CAR
Kadeem TelfortOTUAB
The Jags take another tackle, this one is a monster tackle in Kadeem Telfort. He's 6-8, 330 pounds and uses his big body to protect the QB.

Charlie ThomasLBGeorgia Tech
Saints take Charlie Thomas, a 6-3 linebacker out of Virginia Tech. Thomas was tied for fourth last year in coverage stops by a linebacker.

Titansvia ATL
Alex ForsythCOregon
Titans take Alex Forsyth, a center out of Oregon. Last season he allowed 0 sacks, 0 hits, and only 1 quarterback hurry in 408 pass-blocking snaps.

Texansvia NYJ via TB
Warren McClendonOTGeorgia
Texans take Georgia tackle Warren McClendon. PFF graded him with an 82.1 pass blocking grade. He primarily lined up at the right tackle spot.

Raidersvia NE
BJ ThompsonEDGEStephen F. Austin
The Raiders take an interesting prospect in BJ Thompson. He's a 6-6 edge rusher who excels at pass-rushing.

Logan BonnerQBUtah State
The irony of the Packers selecting another Utah State quarterback isn't lost on me. However, with Rodgers having one foot out the door and Jordan Love still hasn't shown he has the "it" factor, Bonner steps in to develop behind either of them. He ended his season with an injury in 2022.

Kahlef HailassieCBWestern Kentucky
The Commanders add another cornerback in Kahlef Hailassie. He had two interceptions last year and will look to earn a spot on the depth chart.

TJ BassOTOregon
The Steelers take TJ Bass out of Oregon. He finished his career at the left tackle position but will likely slot to the interior. He's played left guard so the interior isn't foreign to him.

Packersvia LAR
Malaesala Aumavae-LauluOTOregon
Packers take 6-5 right tackle Malaesala Aumavae-Laulu out of Oregon who could develop into a really nice depth player.

Coltsvia TB
Dion Bergan Jr.DIWake Forest
The Colts take a chance on Dion Bergan Jr. He's a little undersized for a defensive lineman but has gotten better every year.

Aubrey MillerLBJackson State
The Commanders take Aubry Miller who is a really good coverage linebacker.

MJ AndersonEDIowa State
The Dolphins take another edge rusher in MJ Anderson. He doesn't have a ton of experience, but what experience he has, he's shown flashes. Including 4 sacks and 12 quarterback hurries in only 192 pass-rush snaps.

Kyle PattersonTEAir Force
The Chargers take Kyle Patterson, who is a really good run-blocking tight end out of Air Force.

Giantsvia BAL
Dylan HortonEDGETCU
Giants take Dylan Horton out of TCU. He's a 6-4 edge rusher who has lined up on the inside and outsight on the defensive line.

via MIN via DEN
Nesta Jade SilveraDIArizona State
Steelers take 6-2 Nesta Jade Silvera, a defensive lineman out of Arizona State who finished with 2 sacks, 14 quarterback hurries, and three batted balls.

Packersvia JAX
Isaiah LandEDGEFlorida A&M

Gervarrius OwensSHouston
The Giants go with Gervarrius Owens, a safety out of Houston who is a good coverage safety.

Mohamoud DiabateLBUtah
Cowboys take linebacker Mohamoud Diabate out of Utah. Diabate grades out with a good pass-rush.

Chris Rodriguez Jr.RBKentucky
While the Falcons have plenty of options at running back, talented back Chris Rodriguez Jr. who ran for 904 yards and six touchdowns is too good to pass up.

Dalton WagnerOTArkansas
Bengals add offensive line depth taking tackle Dalton Wagner out of Arkansas.

Jack PodlesnyKGeorgia
The 49ers draft Jack Podlesny, Georgia's former kicker, to replace Robbie Gould.

via NO
John OjukwuOTBoise State
Eagles select tackle John Ojukwu for offensive line depth. Ojukwu allowed 0 sacks in 436 pass-block snaps last year.

Chiefs add cornerback Jay Ward. He's a 6-1 corner that played LSU and worked best against the run.

ChiefsComp Pick
Dontay DemusWRMaryland
Chiefs use their second pick in a row to draft Dontay Demus, wide receiver out of Maryland. Demus didn't grade out as well this last year as the previous two. However, he's still averaged over 10 yards a catch in his college career.

Comp Pick
Nick HamptonEDGEAppalachian State
The Rams take edge rusher Nick Hampton out of App State. He had 9 sacks last year on only 184 pass rush snaps.

BuccaneersComp Pick
Brandon HillSPittsburgh
The Bucs finish their draft by taking Brandon Hill, a safety out of Pittsburgh.

49ersComp Pick
Darrell Luter Jr.CBSouth Alabama
Chiefs have already talked with Darrell Luter Jr, and now they draft the cornerback out of South Alabama who allowed just a 3.9 passer rating in 2021.

GiantsComp Pick
SirVocea DennisLBPittsburgh
The Giants take linebacker SirVocea Dennis who was graded with a 92.1 run defense grade by PFF in 2022.

49ersComp Pick
Xazavian ValladayRBArizona State
It seems like the 49ers draft a running back every year. This year they go with Xazavian Valladay who is coming off a 1192 yard, 16 touchdown season.

PackersComp Pick
Tiawan MullenCBIndiana
Packers select cornerback Tiawan Mullen out of Indiana. He'll compete for depth and special teams play.

Comp Pick
Brayden WillisTEOklahoma
The Saints add Brayden Willis, a tight end out of Oklahoma with their last pick. Willis had 503 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns last year. He is also good at run blocking

Comp Pick
Derek ParishEDGEHouston
Bears add a third pass-rusher with their last pick by taking Derek Parish out of Houston. Parish had 6 sacks and 17 quarterback hurries on just 132 pass-rush snaps last year.

TexansComp Pick
Jacob GallCBaylor
The Texans make center Jacob Gall Mr. Irrelevant. At guard and center over the last three years, he's allowed 0 sacks in over 1000 pass-block snaps.
