NFL Mock Draft 2023 NFL Mock Draft Simulator, The 2023 NFL Draft is right around the corner, and we’re going to take a look at what to expect. In this mock, we’ll take a look at the top picks and players that could be selected.
The Titans have a big need at tackle. Paris Johnson has good athleticism for the position. He is a potential starter with more technical refinement from NFL coaching.
Keion White (Tennessee Titans)
Our three CBS Sports NFL Draft analysts, are Ryan Wilson, Chris Trapasso, and Josh Edwards. Joined Rick Spielman to take a look at the 2023 NFL mock draft. Here are the top prospects in the class.
Keion White is a colossus, his bulk and length defying convention. Along with exceptional explosiveness and dominant power capacity. He could be a first-round sleeper.
Mazi Smith (Cleveland Browns)
After a disappointing season, the Cleveland Browns have to make some changes in their key positions. They have a few obvious needs at the defensive end, safety, and wide receiver.
Mazi Smith from Michigan would be a good fit at nose tackle as he’s a huge 6’3” and 337 pounds. He’s a great run defender that can force the quarterback out of the running lanes.
Derick Hall (Buccaneers)
A former four-star recruit. Hall has been a key force in Auburn’s defensive line rotation in his first two seasons. He has a strong, explosive burst and elite proportional length for his size. Offering an excellent raw power capacity to drive blockers off the ball.
He’s also consistent. High-motor pressure threat who works through contact to seek out the QB with energy. He’s not a polished overall pass rusher. But he has the traits to develop into a long-term starting EDGE/OLB at the next level.
Tucker Kraft (Dolphins)
Kraft is a big-bodied, productive tight end out of South Dakota State who checks a lot of boxes for the Dolphins. Miami needs a solid blocker in the tight end position, and Kraft is a good fit.
He possesses great run-blocking skills and is also a decent pass protector. He’s a willing and assignment-savvy blocker. Who shows good initial burst and aggression to challenge defenders.
Zach Charbonnet (Eagles)
Zach Charbonnet is an athletic running back with power and good speed. That has a knack for making defenders miss in space. He can accelerate 0-to-60 in 1.54 seconds and breaks tackles at a high rate.
His best weapon is his contact balance. He displays a strong lower body and great coordination. He has also shown a talent to fight through arm tackles and bounce off defenders.
Matthew Bergeron (Kansas City Chiefs)
The Kansas City Chiefs are a team in need of a top edge rusher. Especially with Carlos Dunlap set to become a free agent next year. They could look to fill their void with another stud interior pass-rusher like Matthew Bergeron. Who is on the draft radar in this mock draft?
Bergeron is a savvy, dynamic blocker who wears his weight well on a compact frame. He also has great length, power capacity, and strength. Which all contribute to his overall talent level.
Will Levis (Atlanta Falcons)
The Falcons may not be in a position to select one of the top quarterbacks in this draft class. But they can’t ignore the potential of Will Levis. The Kentucky QB is a project with plenty of growing to do. But he has the arm talent to sling the ball deep and the legs to scramble out of the pocket.
The Raiders may be ready to take a risk on Levis to get a quarterback. Who can assist them in turning around their franchise? This decision will also allow them to bolster their defense. By adding an exceptional defensive tackle in Will Anderson.
Peter Skoronski (New England Patriots)
A big, tough, and athletic tackle. Peter Skoronski might be the most NFL-ready offensive tackle in this year’s draft class. He has a chance to be a polished starter from Day 1 and be the long-term answer at right tackle for the Patriots.
His arm length could be a concern for some teams, but he’s a smart football player who can change the direction of play. He can stay tethered while challenging speed or short-set rushers and protects well on the edge.
Devon Witherspoon (Green Bay Packers)
Witherspoon, a likely Day One pick, is an athletic cornerback with exceptional reactive athleticism who possesses the instinct to stop the run in space.
He also combines excellent route recognition. Film-based knowledge and short-area suddenness to stay in his opponent’s pocket. His low backpedal and smooth feet allow him to keep his shoulders squared until he feels the receiver pushing vertically. When he can flip his hips quickly and carry them upfield.
Myles Murphy (Chicago Bears)
The Chicago Bears need an edge rusher to help fill their many holes on the defensive front. Clemson’s Myles Murphy is a perfect fit.
Clemson EDGE defender Myles Murphy has the traits and upside to be a scheme-versatile impact defender in the NFL. He has a rare blend of size, length, explosion, and fluidity that allows him to reduce angles with power or play through steep angles with speed.
