Welcome to my mock draft 1.0 for the 2023 NFL draft! Well over two months into the college football & NFL seasons, I’ve learned enough about NFL teams needs and have a solid beginning understanding on some of college football’s top draft prospects to be able to give you guys this mock draft. The draft order I’m using will be structured a bit differently than any other mocks out there currently, which are based on teams current records. I’m using ESPN’s Football Power Index (FPI), which has simulated the remainder of the season 10,000 times. The order is based on the records the model believes the teams will have after 17 games, and the order is based on each team's average draft position in the simulations.
