With the conclusion of the 2023 NFL Combine, it’s time for another full first-round mock draft. This time we draft with a few assumptions and trades.
The assumptions: I have Aaron Rodgers staying in Green Bay, Derek Carr signing with the New York Jets, and Jimmy Garropolo heading to the Carolina Panthers.
The trades: The Chicago Bears trade back twice in the first round, first with the Indianapolis Colts and then with the Atlanta Falcons. The Detroit Lions trade up with the No. 3 pick in a swap with the Arizona Cardinals.
Remember, the Miami Dolphins were stripped of their first-round pick this year for tampering allegations, so only 31 selections appear in this mock draft.
With that housekeeping out of the way, let’s get to the draft.
