Hopefully, we’ve all gotten at least a little sleep at this point, now that the current NFL draft cycle has officially come to a close. Now that every team’s draft class for this year is complete, and the undrafted free agent frenzy has run its course, it’s time to take an early look into the future. At this point, projections for the 2023 NFL draft are more about forecasting potential needs for every team, and matching them up with the eligible prospects we expect to be among the best in college football this upcoming season. Obviously, much will change over the next 11 months, but these early mock drafts are a fun way to start getting to know those names ahead of the 2022 season.
