This mock reflects what I think teams will do, not what they should do. Furthermore, this mock does not include any trading. For more on the prospects, betting the draft, and all the rumors, be sure to check out our free podcast here.

 

1. Panthers – Bryce Young, QB, Alabama

Carolina traded into this spot specifically to draft this year’s consensus QB1.

 

2. Texans – Will Anderson, EDGE, Alabama

A comfy and safe-floor match for fellow Crimson Tide alum DeMeco Ryans.

 

3. Cardinals – Tyree Wilson, EDGE, Texas Tech

Arizona’s needs are many. Wilson is known to be rated high on their board.

 

4. Colts – Will Levis, QB, Kentucky

Jim Irsay has issued a quarterback ultimatum. Levis is the Colts’ top target.

 

5. Seahawks – Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia

My confidence is low here, but Carter is worth the pick, and Seattle badly needs iDL help.

 

6. Lions – Devon Witherspoon, CB, Illinois

Dan Campbell’s team opts for 2023’s top corner after dealing away Jeff Okudah.

 

7. Raiders – Christian Gonzalez, CB, Oregon

Gonzalez would give the Raiders their first true No. 1 CB talent since Nnamdi Asomugha.

 

8. Falcons – C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State

2022 third-round pick Desmond Ridder would start if Atlanta’s season began today.

 

9. Bears – Paris Johnson, OT, Ohio State

Justin Fields’ college teammate projects as an ideal long-term bookend for Braxton Jones.

 

10. Eagles – Nolan Smith, EDGE, Georgia

Howie Roseman is a DL compiler. If the Eagles don’t trade, I hear Smith is their favorite.

 

11. Titans – Peter Skoronski, T/G, Northwestern

A high-floor pick to bolster Tennessee’s disintegrating offensive front.

 

12. Texans – Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas

Texans view Robinson as a Deebo Samuel-level all-purpose playmaker.

 

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

Green Bay must set up Jordan Love for success with JSN complementing Christian Watson.

 

14. Patriots – Lukas Van Ness, EDGE, Iowa

Van Ness’ plus-sized, power-based, heavy-handed game meshes with the Patriot Way.

 

15. Jets – Darnell Wright, OT, Tennessee

Massive RT prospect (6’5/333) addresses Gang Green’s lone glaring roster weakness.

 

16. Commanders – Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson

Washington needs outside pass-rush help after declining Chase Young’s fifth-year option.

 

17. Steelers – Brian Branch, CB, Alabama

Branch is a plug-and-play slot corner between Patrick Peterson and Levi Wallace.

 

18. Lions – Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame

Should have won the 2022 Mackey Award. Obviously.

 

19. Bucs – Calijah Kancey, DT, Pittsburgh

Undersized but explosive interior gap shooter to complement space eater Vita Vea.

 

20. Seahawks – Anthony Richardson, QB, Florida

Richardson could be in play for Seattle as early as No. 5, but I think he will fall.

 

21. Chargers – Jordan Addison, WR, USC

Bolts WRs coach Chris Beatty was Addison’s position coach at Pitt before Addison transferred to USC.

 

22. Ravens – Emmanuel Forbes, CB, Mississippi State

I’m entirely unsure of the player’s identity, but I think the Ravens are going DB here.

 

23. Vikings – Hendon Hooker, QB, Tennessee

I’m admittedly shoehorning Hooker into the first round with no idea who will take him.

 

24. Jaguars – Joe Tippmann, G/C, Wisconsin

Jacksonville needs interior O-Line help, and Tippmann is a surefire Day 1 starter.

 

25. Giants – Deonte Banks, CB, Maryland

Cor’Dale Flott and Darnay Holmes aren’t going to cut it behind brittle No. 1 CB Adoree Jackson.

 

26. Cowboys – Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah

Kincaid is believed to be the No. 1 tight end on Dallas’ draft board.

 

27. Bills – Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College

Dynamic slot receiver to play between Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis.

 

28. Bengals – Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State

I could see Cincinnati moving Porter to safety, which is a big need for them.

 

29. Saints – Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

One of very few prototype alpha WR1 types in this draft class.

 

30. Eagles – Jahmyr Gibbs, RB, Alabama

Been hearing Eagles are super high on Gibbs since early in the process.

 

31. Chiefs – Broderick Jones, OT, Georgia

Chiefs get a big-time steal here to help replace Orlando Brown Jr.
