Round 1 - Pick 1

Alabama • Jr • 6'0" / 194 lbs

Projected Team
Indianapolis

POSITION RNK
1st

I'm kicking off the first stage of draft season with a trade involving the No. 1 overall pick. Bears GM Chris Ballard can't wait around anymore. I don't think Colts owner Jim Irsay wants another experience with a veteran passer either. Colts move up to get an athletic, super-poised passer in Young.

Round 1 - Pick 2

Alabama • Jr • 6'4" / 243 lbs

Projected Team
Houston
PROSPECT RNK
1st
POSITION RNK
1st

The Texans have a long history of picking edge rushers near or at the top of the draft. Anderson is a high-floor, All-Pro-upside type at the defensive end spot.

Round 1 - Pick 3

Georgia • Jr • 6'3" / 300 lbs

Projected Team
Arizona
PROSPECT RNK
4th
POSITION RNK
1st

Carter is the ideal replacement for the retiring J.J. Watt. He's a long, hyper-athletic interior rusher who disruptive on three downs.

Round 1 - Pick 4

Northwestern • Jr • 6'4" / 315 lbs

Projected Team
Chicago
PROSPECT RNK
3rd
POSITION RNK
2nd

In the slide back, the Bears get this pick -- the Colts' second and third-round picks in 2023 and a first and second and fifth in 2024. Skoronski isn't a Tristan Wirfs-esque tackle, but has quality athleticism and tremendous pass-protection film in 2022.

Round 1 - Pick 5

Clemson • Soph • 6'5" / 305 lbs

Projected Team
Seattle
PROSPECT RNK
7th
POSITION RNK
1st

The Seahawks have to add more athleticism and beef to the interior of their defensive line. Bresee is a specimen who can wreak havoc at any position up front.

Round 1 - Pick 6

Ohio State • Jr • 6'3" / 218 lbs

Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
6th
POSITION RNK
3rd

Jared Goff was fantastic down the stretch in 2022, but the Lions pick Stroud, believing they won't be picking this high again for a while. Stroud has major upside.

Round 1 - Pick 7

Kentucky • Sr • 6'3" / 232 lbs

Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
5th
POSITION RNK
2nd

At this point, I can't envision Tom Brady joining Josh McDaniels with the Raiders in a division with Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert. Vegas will be deeply involved in the draft class of quarterbacks, and Levis has a big-time skill set.

Round 1 - Pick 8

Texas Tech • Sr • 6'6" / 275 lbs

Projected Team
Atlanta
PROSPECT RNK
19th
POSITION RNK
4th

The Falcons defense has a giant void on the outside rusher position, and Wilson is a huge, athletic specimen with serious pass-rush ability.

Round 1 - Pick 9

Florida • Soph • 6'4" / 232 lbs

Projected Team
Carolina
PROSPECT RNK
18th
POSITION RNK
3rd

The Panthers need to look to the draft for their next quarterback. Richardson can sit for a little behind Sam Darnold before eventually taking over. He's a monstrous talent.

Round 1 - Pick 10

Clemson • Jr • 6'5" / 275 lbs

Projected Team
Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK
31st
POSITION RNK
5th

A big, long edge-setting specialist with pass-rushing upside. That's who Murphy is, and it's the prototype the Eagles like at the defensive end spot.

Round 1 - Pick 11

Florida • Jr • 6'5" / 347 lbs

Projected Team
Tennessee
PROSPECT RNK
34th
POSITION RNK
4th

The Titans need to bolster the offensive line, and Torrence looks like the physical specimen at guard who could ultimately land this high. His run-blocking prowess will pique the interest of Tennessee's coaching staff.

Round 1 - Pick 12

TCU • Jr • 6'4" / 215 lbs

Projected Team
Houston
PROSPECT RNK
23rd
POSITION RNK
2nd

Johnston is a major vertical threat given his size and build-up speed. The Texans have to get better in the receiver room, especially if Brandin Cooks is moved in the offseason.

Round 1 - Pick 13

Ohio State • Jr • 6'6" / 310 lbs

Projected Team
N.Y. Jets
PROSPECT RNK
17th
POSITION RNK
2nd

Could the Jets be major players on the veteran QB market? I think they will. So for the draft, they build the offensive line with Johnson, a super-steady tackle prospect.

Round 1 - Pick 14

Notre Dame • Jr • 6'4" / 265 lbs

Projected Team
New England
PROSPECT RNK
8th
POSITION RNK
1st

Hunter Henry has been a favorite target of Mac Jones, but that shouldn't stop Bill Belichick from targeting Mayer in Round 1. Mayer is such a talented receiving weapon at tight end.

Round 1 - Pick 15

USC • Jr • 6'0" / 175 lbs

Projected Team
Green Bay
PROSPECT RNK
13th
POSITION RNK
3rd

More receiving help for Aaron Rodgers with Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb set for free agency. Addison is a dynamic route runner with a high floor.

Round 1 - Pick 16

Penn State • Jr • 6'2" / 194 lbs

Projected Team
Washington
PROSPECT RNK
22nd
POSITION RNK
1st

The Commanders could use more high-end talent at the outside cornerback position, and Porter is a long, disruptive defender.

Round 1 - Pick 17

South Carolina • Jr • 6'0" / 188 lbs

Projected Team
Pittsburgh
PROSPECT RNK
26th
POSITION RNK
4th

Smith's tenacity as an outside press corner fits what the Steelers want out of their defensive backs.

Round 1 - Pick 18

Clemson • Jr • 6'3" / 240 lbs

Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
10th
POSITION RNK
1st

Simpson is a highly athletic, three-down linebacker with some outside pass-rushing juice. He'd be a fun addition to the Lions defense, a unit that played better down the stretch.

Round 1 - Pick 19

Oklahoma • Jr • 6'5" / 315 lbs

Projected Team
Tampa Bay
PROSPECT RNK
21st
POSITION RNK
3rd

The Buccaneers continue to fortify the blocking contingent with the pass-pro specialist from Oklahoma.

Round 1 - Pick 20

Kansas State • Jr • 6'4" / 255 lbs

Projected Team
Seattle
PROSPECT RNK
25th
POSITION RNK
3rd

The Seahawks get a high-energy, bendy outside rusher who knows how to use his hands to beat blockers.

Round 1 - Pick 21

Alabama • Jr • 6'0" / 193 lbs

Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
9th
POSITION RNK
1st

Branch is a do-everything defensive back who'd give the Jaguars more game-changing ability on the back end.

Round 1 - Pick 23

Ohio State • Jr • 6'1" / 200 lbs

Projected Team
N.Y. Giants
PROSPECT RNK
38th
POSITION RNK
1st

The Giants are glad to stop Smith-Njigba's fall here to give Daniel Jones another receiving weapon.

Round 1 - Pick 24

Oregon • Soph • 6'2" / 201 lbs

Projected Team
Baltimore
PROSPECT RNK
24th
POSITION RNK
4th

The Ravens get a lengthy, athletic perimeter corner for their already stout defense.

Round 1 - Pick 25

Oregon State • Jr • 6'6" / 250 lbs

He's coming off an injury, but the Chargers bet on his athleticism and impressive size at the tight-end spot.

Round 1 - Pick 26

Arkansas • Jr • 6'5" / 233 lbs

Projected Team
Dallas
PROSPECT RNK
11th
POSITION RNK
2nd

Sanders is a long and physical, off-ball/edge-rusher hybrid. He can help replace Anthony Barr and/or Leighton Vander Esch if the latter isn't re-signed.

Round 1 - Pick 27

Georgia • Soph • 6'2" / 210 lbs

Projected Team
Cincinnati
PROSPECT RNK
29th
POSITION RNK
4th

More secondary talent for the Bengals with Ringo, who's best in a Cover 3 role where he can focus on playing the football in the air.

Round 1 - Pick 28

LSU • Jr • 6'3" / 250 lbs

Projected Team
Minnesota
PROSPECT RNK
