Behind The Steel Curtain

We’ve made it! The draft is finally here, and yours truly could not be more excited! The 2-hour sleep nights, the midnight Mountain Dews, and everything else that comes with this job during the month of April, is almost done! Well, at least for another 8 months... This is my final 2023 mock draft, but the draft coverage will not end with this. Following the conclusion of the draft will come numerous types of articles on BTSC, from draft grades, to film rooms, to player analysis. And yes, I have not forgotten about my annual way-too-early mock draft, which should come out next week. If you are familiar with my mock drafts, the rules have not changed. For those that are new, let me explain how my mock drafts work. Each draft cycle, I have five NFL mock drafts, with the final 5.0 mock draft being a full, seven-round projection. Most importantly, these mocks are a projection based off what I am hearing and think makes the most sense. They are not based on what I want to happen or what I would do if I was the general manager for each team. Being my final pre-draft prediction, this mock goes seven rounds long, and trades are projected.
