Final 2023 NFL Mock Draft

Here's my final NFL mock draft with no trades allowed. I'll take credit for a correct pick if I match up a player with a team even if it's in a different slot due to a trade. Here's how I think things will play out.

1. Panthers – Bryce Young, QB, Alabama

Frank Reich just said the team has a consensus. I think it's Young.

2. Texans – Will Anderson, EDGE, Alabama

If Young is gone, it's going to be Anderson. DeMeco Ryans goes defense.

3. Cardinals – Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia

They'll trade down for an additional pick and still probably select Carter.

4. Colts – C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State

Shane Steichen will have a QB to right the ship in Indy after doing great things in Philly.

5. Seahawks – Tyree Wilson, EDGE, Texas Tech

Wilson could be the best pass rusher in the class and Seattle does well to get him at No. 5.

6. Lions – Devon Witherspoon, CB, Illinois

Witherspoon is our consensus best CB at and Detroit gets him.

7. Raiders – Christian Gonzalez, CB, Oregon

Even with Jimmy G. in town, Vegas should go QB, but the top two are gone, so it's defense.

8. Falcons – Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson

Atlanta needs help in a lot of places, but they'll be happy to add an elite edge.

9. Bears – Peter Skoronski, OT, Northwestern

The Bears had the best vantage point for nearby Skoronski. He'll protect Justin Fields.

10. Eagles – Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas

Robinson is a top-five talent and the Eagles won't pass up a chance to add to their firepower.

11. Titans – Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State

The Titans need to rebuild one of the worst O-lines in the NFL. Johnson will help.

12. Texans – Anthony Richardson, QB, Florida

The upside is exciting, but it could definitely backfire if he doesn't stay consistent.

13. Packers – Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State

Irony of all ironies, Green Bay takes a WR to help Jordan Love, with Aaron Rodgers in N.Y.

14. Patriots – Lukas Van Ness, EDGE, Iowa

Van Ness just seems like a Patriot and he should contribute quickly for Bill Belichick.

15. Jets – Darnell Wright, OT, Tennessee

With Rodgers taking snaps for the Jets, they'll make sure he's protected by adding Wright.

16. Commanders – Will Levis, QB, Kentucky

Levis has potential, and the Commanders could be taking the second best QB in the draft.

17. Steelers – Deonte Banks, CB, Maryland

The prospect of Banks is too hard to pass up as he offers top-end athleticism.

18. Lions – Calijah Kancey, DT, Pittsburgh

This Lions D-line is pretty barren outside of Aidan Hutchinson. Kancey will help on the inside.

19. Buccaneers – Brian Branch, S, Alabama

The Bucs have plenty of needs, but they could get the best safety in the draft with this pick.

20. Seahawks – Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

They got their edge player at No. 5, so they add another weapon on the outside here.

21. Chargers – Bryan Bresee, DT, Clemson

After Carter and Kancey, Bresee is the best interior D-lineman to help fill a need for L.A.

22. Ravens – Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State

He could also go to his dad's old team, Pittsburgh, but I think they'll take Banks instead.

23. Vikings – Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College

Flowers finds ways to get open and Adam Theilen’s exit opens up a lot of targets for him.

24. Jaguars – O’Cyrus Torrence, OG, Florida

The Jags need help protecting Trevor Lawrence and the Gator can pitch in right away.

25. Giants – Jordan Addison, WR, Southern Cal

There's little doubt that Addison would be able to contribute to the Giants from day one.

26. Cowboys – Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame

Mayer is one of the most complete tight ends to come out of the draft in a number of years.

27. Bills – Nolan Smith, DE/OLB, Georgia

Some had RB Robinson falling here, but the Bills would be happy to add the fast LB.

28. Bengals – Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah

He's a better receiving TE than Mayer, and that means he'll be another weapon for Joe Burrow.

29. Saints – Will McDonald IV, EDGE, Iowa State

The Saints can use a player that can get to the quarterback just like every other team.

30. Eagles – Keion White, DL, Georgia Tech

He can play on the inside or outside and contribute to an already great Eagles D-line.

31. Chiefs – Broderick Jones, OT, Georgia

Jones is an elite athlete with impressive 2022 tape, and he scored well at the combine.
