Bryce/X’s Dual Mock Draft (2023)

The NFL Draft is less than a day away! This is probably the first draft in a long time where nobody knows a thing. Every team can go any position in this draft, and we’ll surely see a whirlwind of trades on night one as teams with not a ton of first round grades move back from their picks.

  1. Carolina Panthers: Bryce Young, QB, Alabama. The Panthers get the QB of the future here, and the most surefire QB pick of this draft. Young joins an offense with DJ Chark, Adam Thielen, Miles Sanders, and Hayden Hurst.
  2. Houston Texans: Will Anderson, DE, Alabama. The Texans get maybe the best defensive player in this draft for new HC Demo Ryans, and don’t feel like they reached for one of the QBs available.
  3. Arizona Cardinals: Jalen Carter, DE, Georgia. Arizona adds to an underwhelming defensive line, with Jalen Carter just the start of their improvements.
  4. Indianapolis Colts: CJ Stroud, QB, OSU. Indy lands a top two QB of this class, and does so pairing him with Jonathan Taylor and Michael Pittman Jr.
  5. Seattle Seahawks: Anthony Richardson, QB, Florida. The Seahawks take their QB of the future here, and does so without putting a time limit on when he replaces Geno as the starter. This allows Richardson to grow more as a passer and refine some of his mechanics.
  6. Detroit Lions: Tyree Wilson, LB, Texas A&M. The Lions add another “kneecap biter” to their defense in Tyree Wilson, and gives them another pass rusher to pair with Aidan Hutchinson and James Houston.
  7. Las Vegas Raiders: Christian Gonzalez, CB, Oregon. The Raiders get some much needed CB help, with just David Long Jr, Nate Hobbs, and Duke Shelley as their top three Corners.
  8. Atlanta Falcons: Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas. The Raiders get the best RB in this class to give Desmond Ridder some much needed help going into year two, and another player in the backfield with Tyler Allgier.
  9. Chicago Bears: Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, OSU. The Bears actually give Justin Fields some help at receiver! JSN would likely take Darnell Mooney’s place in the slot, while also doubling as an outside receiver every once in a while.
  10. Philadelphia Eagles: Devon Witherspoon, CB, Illinois. The Eagles begin preparing for the future at CB with this pick with both James Bradberry and Darius Slay becoming Free Agents in 2026.
  11. Tennessee Titans: Paris Johnson Jr, OL, OSU. The Titans get some much needed OL help while protecting whatever QB they decide to roll out there this year.
  12. Houston Texans: Will Levis, QB, Kentucky. Their QB of the future! The Texans improve in other areas while they wait for the right QB for them. Levis likely becomes their day one starter ahead of Davis Mills and Case Keenum.
  13. Green Bay Packers: Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College. The Packers take a first round receiver! Unfortunately though, it comes to late to please Aaron Rodgers. Green Bay gets a new starter for Jordan Love after losing Allen Lazard in Free Agency.
  14. New England Patriots: Joey Porter Jr, CB, Penn State. The Patriots get a new starting CB, and possibly the best corner in this draft. The Patriots fill an immediate need pairing Porter Jr with Jonathan Jones.
  15. New York Jets: Peter Skoronski, OL, Northwestern. The Jets fill a huge need while keeping Aaron Rodgers upright. New York cant go into the season with Max Mitchell blocking for their HOF QB, so prioritizing a first round tackle is huge.
  16. Washington Commanders: Broderick Jones, OL, Georgia. Nobody truly knows where the Commanders go here. They have multiple needs to fill, but starting with protecting their QB is a high priority.
  17. Pittsburgh Steelers: Lukas Van Ness, DE, Iowa. The Steelers add to an already stacked front seven here. Lukas Van Ness provides immediate pass rush help while adding more depth to their DE room.
  18. Detroit Lions: Deonte Banks, CB, Maryland. After trading away Jeff Okudah, that left a hoe in their CB room. Drafting Deonte Banks to pair with Emmanuel Moseley and Cam Sutton automatically gives their secondary a huge boost.
  19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Darnell Wright, OL, Tennessee. If the Buccaneers want to see the best of Baker Mayfield, they need to improve their OL. And that starts with one of the top OTs of the draft.
  20. Seattle Seahawks: Jordan Addison, WR, Pitt. Another weapon of the future for Anthony Richardson. Once they hand the reigns over to AR-15, he’ll have Tyler Lockett, Jordan Addison, and DK Metcalf to throw to.
  21. Las Angeles Chargers: O’Cyrus Torrence, OL, Florida. The Chargers OL has been a train wreck. Just ask Justin Herbert. Adding the best Guard of this draft is the step in the right direction for a team trying to compete in a loaded AFC.
  22. Baltimore Ravens: Quentin Johnson, WR, TCU. The Ravens continue adding to their WR room, pairing Quentin Johnston with Odell Beckham Jr this year. Now, the only question that remains is who their QB will be.
  23. Minnesota Vikings: Emmanuel Forbes, CB, Mississippi State. The Vikings have multiple holes to fill, but after losing Patrick Peterson in Free Agency, going corner is a must.
  24. Jacksonville Jaguars: Nolan Smith, DE, Georgia. Jacksonville finds somebody to plug next to Josh Allen on the defensive line. Drafting Nolan makes their pass rush deadly as they make a run for the playoffs again this year.
  25. New York Giants: DJ Turner, CB, Michigan. The Giants need a corner opposite of Adoree Jackson. Drafting Turner gives them a new starter in the secondary.
  26. Dallas Cowboys: Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame. Dallas lost Dalton Schultz to the Texans this off-season, so giving Dak a new TE should be one of their highest priorities.
  27. Buffalo Bills: Drew Sanders, LB, Arkansas. The Bills add a nasty pass rusher while Von Miller misses time with his torn ACL, with Sanders totaling 9.5 sacks last year.
  28. Cincinnati Bengals: Dalton Kincaid, TE, San Diego. The Bengals lost Hayden Hurst in Free Agency, and only added Irv Smith Jr. IF the Bengals want to compete for a Super Bowl again, giving Joe Burrow another weapon is a big need. They also cant have Irv Smith taking meaningful playoff reps.
  29. New Orleans Saints: Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina. The Saints have a bundle of needs. So they can go anywhere with this pick. But here, we take a Corner to pair with Marshon Lattimore. If all things go well, he’ll develop into a CB2 in the league.
  30. Philadelphia Eagles: Brian Branch, S, Alabama. Again, the Eagles continue to look to the future in the secondary. Branch fills an immediate hole as well as future, seeing as they lost Chauncey Gardner-Johnson to Detroit.
  31. Kansas City Chiefs: Jalen Hyatt, WR, Tennessee. The Chiefs continue adding to their WR room, and Jalen Hyatt will be somebody they fall in love with as they replace Mecole Hardman.
