NFL Mock Draft 2023 – Version 1


It’s officially mock draft season at ProFootballMania. Below you will find our first mock draft for round 1. For now we have not included any trades in this mock draft. That will likely change in the coming weeks as we go through our scenarios. Let’s take a look at some of the key highlights.

Bears Stay Put (For Now)

There has been a lot of chatter that the Chicago Bears are open to trading the first overall pick. That means they are likely sticking with Justin Fields. This is the right move as there are no guaranteed locks at quarterback in this years draft. In this version the Bears did not receive a good enough offer to trade out of #1. Let’s wait and see though what happens as we get closer to the draft.

Bryce Young Goes to Houston

If you’re the Houston Texans and Bryce Young is on the board, you have to take him. Yes there are some concerns about his height and weight but the upside is there. Durability may be an issue long term but if you can get 4-5 years of strong QB play from Young you take it.

Welcome to Detroit Will Levis

When it’s all said and done Will Levis may be the best quarterback prospect from this year’s draft. He as all the tools to succeed including a rocket arm. The Lions seem to be a perfect fit for him. He can sit a year behind quarterback Jared Goff as he refines his game and learns the speed of the NFL.

Jets Take the First Receiver

The New York Jets have an impressive young roster and they will continue to build on it with Quentin Johnston. Johnston will fit right in next to the dynamic Garrett Wilson. The only missing piece to the Jets offense is a quarterback. Look for them to address this later in the draft.
