The NFL regular season is officially over. Fourteen teams are preparing to win Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, Arizona, meanwhile, the other 18 teams are preparing for next season and beyond. It is never too early to talk about the 2023 NFL Draft.
There will be a lot of scouting going on over the next several weeks and months leading up to it on April 27th-April 29th in Kansas City, Missouri. Who could potentially be drafted in the Top 10 in this year's 2023 NFL Mock Draft?
1. Chicago Bears- Will Anderson, EDGE, Alabama
The Chicago Bears could trade this pick for a kings ransom. Chicago doesn't need a quarterback because they have Justin Fields. If they keep the pick, Will Anderson is a great start in fixing this horrible defense.
2. Houston Texans- C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State
The Houston Texans will most likely have a new head coach and a new general manager. Houston is most likely going to move off of quarterback Davis Mills. The Texans get their franchise guy in C.J. Stroud who played amazing against Georgia in the college football playoff.
3. Arizona Cardinals- Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia
The Arizona Cardinals need help on the defensive side of the football. Arizona doesn't have those game-changers on defense after losing Chandler Jones a season ago and J.J. Watt to retirement. Carter is a great start here for the Cardinals.
4. Indianapolis Colts- Bryce Young, QB, Alabama
The Indianapolis Colts haven't got the quarterback position right since Andrew Luck. Indianapolis had Nick Foles, Sam Ehlinger, and Matt Ryan a season ago at the quarterback position and none of them are the answer. Bryce Young would be the solution for the Colts in the long run.
5. Seattle Seahawks (from Denver Broncos)- Tyree Wilson, EDGE, Texas Tech
The Seattle Seahawks will have the fifth overall pick from the Denver Broncos in the 2023 NFL Draft because of the Russell Wilson trade. Seattle could use some help on defense and Wilson is one of the most talented edge rushers in this NFL Draft. The Seahawks are acquiring young talent slowly but surely over again.
6. Detroit Lions (from Los Angeles Rams)- Myles Murphy, DL, Clemson
The Detroit Lions will have the sixth overall pick from the Los Angeles Rams in the 2023 NFL Draft because of the Matthew Stafford trade. Detroit needs help on defense and they already have Aidan Hutchinson up front. Why not add some else up front for the Lions with Myles Murphy who is also very talented.
7. Las Vegas Raiders- O'Cyrus Torrence, OL, Florida
The Las Vegas Raiders had one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL a season ago. If it is Derek Carr, Tom Brady, or whoever else at the quarterback position next season, they need a better offensive line in Vegas. The Raiders' selection of Torrence is a very intriguing one nonetheless.
8. Atlanta Falcons- Will Levis, QB, Kentucky
The Atlanta Falcons will be looking to find its next franchise quarterback. Head coach Arthur Smith is an offensive-minded head coach who has a quarterback-friendly offense in Atlanta. Levis has a lot of boom or bust potential, but Smith can make it work for the Falcons in the long run.
9. Carolina Panthers- Quentin Johnson, WR, TCU
The Carolina Panthers will be in a very tough spot once three quarterbacks get taken off the board here. Carolina decides to bolster their offense by drafting the best wide receiver on the board in Quentin Johnson. The Panthers' offense can become more explosive immediately.
10. Philadelphia Eagles (From New Orleans Saints)- Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina
The Philadelphia Eagles have this pick from the New Orleans Saints in the 2023 NFL Draft from an earlier trade. Philadelphia takes another cornerback here with this selection. The Eagles have older corners in Darius Slay and James Bradberry IV.
