After all the months of digging into prospects and rumors, and weeks pouring over betting line movement and what it may mean, the 2023 NFL Draft is finally here. On Thursday, 31 prospects will hear their names called as one of the most unpredictable drafts in recent memory finally gets recorded in ink. Not even the No. 1 pick could escape speculation this week, and good luck trying to figure out what's going to happen from No. 2 onward. I had a great mock draft last year that nailed 30 of the 32 first-round prospects, including underdogs to crack the first round like Lewis Cine and Dax Hill. I also had five picks on the nose, seven others within one spot of where they were taken and 20 players in all within three spots of their true draft position. All of that was released exclusively here on SportsLine. This year, I'm giving away my top 10, which itself should feature multiple surprises as draft information becomes harder to come by on a yearly basis and the barest scraps of rumors are moving the market. SportsLine members will get my full mock draft below as I try to top last year's No. 5 out of 32 performance tracked by the site Grading the Experts.
