With the 2022 NFL Draft in the books, it is worth thinking about who might end up in the first round in 2023. On balance, next year’s class is probably more talented than this year’s group. One of the main differences is at quarterback, where players like C.J. Stroud and Bryce Young boast No. 1 overall potential in a way that this year’s passers did not. But the 2023 class also features some star defenders, exciting wide receivers, and other great players. This mock draft attempts to capture roughly where the class stands going into the summer of 2022.
