The Score

● By Dane Belbeck

Accuracy: 1.44%1448th Place
After a year that saw zero quarterbacks taken in the top 15 picks - and only one in the entire first round - the passers rule the top of the 2023 NFL Mock Draft. Ohio State's C.J. Stroud and Alabama's Bryce Young will likely spend the 2022 collegiate season battling for both the Heisman Trophy and the No. 1 spot in next year's draft. Those two, alongside teammates Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Will Anderson Jr., headline the list of prospects for next year. The order for theScore's way-too-early 2023 mock draft was set using Super Bowl odds while also balancing the number of clubs from each conference picking 19th-32nd - the 14 spots reserved for playoff teams.
