NFL Mock Draft

By Jared Smola | Updated on Tue, 23 May 2023 . 1:27 PM EDT

1. Arizona Cardinals - Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma

The Cards get a QB who’s seemingly tailor-made to run new HC Kliff Kingsbury’s Air Raid offense.

2. San Francisco 49ers - Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State

Despite making heavy investments in the D-line in recent drafts (Solomon Thomas, DeForest Buckner, Arik Armstead), the ‘Niners tied for just 22nd in sacks last year.

3. * TRADE * New York Giants (from New York Jets) - Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama

The Giants use some of their league-high 12 picks to move up and grab the guy many consider the best player in this draft.

4. Oakland Raiders - Ed Oliver, DT, Houston

GM Mike Mayock uses his 1st of 3 first-round picks on an interior disruptor.

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Devin White, LB, LSU

The Bucs are reportedly smitten with White, who can step right in for the departed Kwon Alexander.

6. * TRADE * New York Jets (from New York Giants) - Josh Allen, DE, Kentucky

The Jets struck out on Anthony Barr in free agency. They get a guy here who might turn out to be even better.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars - Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida

The Jags bolster new QB Nick Foles’ protection.

8. Detroit Lions - T.J. Hockensen, TE, Iowa

GM Bob Quinn and HC Matt Patricia both hail from New England, where the Patriots offense long leaned on a dominant 3-down TE.

9. Buffalo Bills - Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama

A 44-game starter at ‘Bama, Williams would be an instant upgrade to Buffalo’s O-line.

10. Denver Broncos - Devin Bush, LB, Michigan

GM John Elway passes on a QB for an uber-athletic LB for new HC Vic Fangio’s defense.

11. Cincinnati Bengals - Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State

After finally moving on from HC Marvin Lewis, the Bengals get ready to make a change at QB. There’s no dead cap money left on Andy Dalton’s contract.

12. * TRADE * New York Giants (from Green Bay Packers) - Daniel Jones, QB, Duke

The Giants trade up again — this time ahead of the QB-needy Dolphins and Redskins — to get their guy.

13. Miami Dolphins - Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson

New HC Brian Flores gets a big 6’3, 315-pounder for the middle of his defense.

14. Atlanta Falcons - Brian Burns, DE, Florida State

The Falcons love their athletic edge rushers. Burns registered a 94th percentile SPARQ score at the Combine.

15. Washington Redskins - Drew Lock, QB, Missouri

The ‘Skins might be the team most likely to leave the 1st round with 1 of the top 4 QBs. They’re reportedly highest on Dwayne Haskins and Lock.

16. Carolina Panthers - Cody Ford, OL, Oklahoma

It’s unclear if Ford will settle in as a guard or tackle, but he’ll help protect Cam Newton and pave running lanes for Christian McCaffrey regardless.

17. * TRADE * Houston Texans (from Green Bay Packers from New York Giants) - Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State

The Texans are desperate for offensive line help after allowing a league-high 62 sacks last season. Many view Dillard as the top pass protector in this class.

18. Minnesota Vikings - Chris Lindstrom, G, Boston College

The uber-athletic Lindstrom (97th percentile SPARQ) is a perfect fit for the Vikings, who are transitioning to a zone-blocking scheme under assistant head coach Gary Kubiak.

19. Tennessee Titans - Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson

The 2019 Ted Hendricks Award winner (nation’s top DE) racked up 21 sacks and 38 tackles for loss over the past 2 seasons.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers - Greedy Williams, CB, LSU

The Steelers have seemingly been needy in the secondary forever. The team is “in love with Williams,” according to The Athletic’s Mark Kaboly.

21. Seattle Seahawks - Rashan Gary, DE, Michigan

Gary boasts elite athleticism but totaled just 9.5 sacks across 3 college seasons and has a shoulder injury that will eventually require surgery. So he looks like a potential faller on draft night. But the ‘Hawks scoop him up here as they look to bolster the pass rush after trading away Frank Clark.

22. Baltimore Ravens - Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma

Baltimore’s WR depth chart is currently topped by Willie Snead, Seth Roberts and Chris Moore. Brown would stretch the field and free up running room for QB Lamar Jackson.

23. * TRADE * Green Bay Packers (from Houston Texans) - Noah Fant, TE, Iowa

After trading down twice, the Packers still nab a seam-stretching TE for Aaron Rodgers.

24. Oakland Raiders - Josh Jacobs, RB, Alabama

The addition of free-agent Isaiah Crowell won’t stop the Raiders from adding this big, 3-down back.

25. Philadelphia Eagles - Montez Sweat, DE, Mississippi State

An enlarged heart discovered at the Combine reportedly has him completely off some teams’ boards. But if the Eagles’ medical staff is comfortable with the condition, Sweat would be a steal here.

26. Indianapolis Colts - Jeffery Simmons, DT, Mississippi State

A 2016 video of him punching a woman and a February torn ACL will cause a guy who many view as a top-10 player in this class to drop.

27. Oakland Raiders - Byron Murphy, CB, Washington

The Raiders use their 3rd and final 1st-rounder to address a pass defense that tied for dead last in yards allowed per attempt last year.

28. Los Angeles Chargers - Kaleb McGary, OL, Washington

The college RT might need to kick inside as a pro. But the Chargers could use help at both spots.

29. Seattle Seahawks - Darnell Savage, DB, Maryland

Savage began his college career as a CB before moving to safety. He could be a Week 1 starter at nickel CB or FS for Seattle.

30. Green Bay Packers - Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss

Only 3 teams allowed more sacks than the Packers last year.

31. Los Angeles Rams - Garrett Bradbury, C, North Carolina State

The Rams find an immediate replacement for John Sullivan.

32. New England Patriots - Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson

Lawrence is the type of big, versatile defender that Bill Belichick loves.
