With The First Pick

It is hard to believe that it has already been two weeks since the 2023 NFL draft. That means it is one of my favorite times of the year as we all begin to dive into the next draft class and start to familiarize ourselves with the top prospects in the class. It is always a ridiculous process. Every year, there are several players in these way-too-early mocks that will end returning to school, falling in the draft or going undrafted all together. Yet we all love to dive right in. I took a slightly different approach this year. Typically, I will put together my mock for right after the draft. This year, I waited a couple of weeks so I could familiarize myself with some of these top prospects. I haven’t watched much to this point. It has mostly been highlights, or a game or two from each of the players I have in this mock. I did my best to project out for what team needs would be when the 2024 draft rolls around. Also, if you don’t like the draft order, take it up with Vegas Insiders. I used the reverse order of their Super Bowl odds to determine which team is selecting where. Let’s dive in. The Arizona Cardinals are on the clock.
