On Sunday’s edition of PFF’s NFL Stock Exchange Podcast, Trevor Sikkema and Connor Rogers went pick by pick in their final three-round mock draft ahead of the 2023 NFL Draft. You can listen to the full episode, with analysis for each pick, here.

ROUND 1

1. CAROLINA PANTHERS (VIA CHI): QB BRYCE YOUNG, ALABAMA

“Bryce Young is my top quarterback. They need a quarterback, they traded a lot of picks to get here. I think he's the best one.” — Rogers

2. HOUSTON TEXANS: EDGE WILL ANDERSON JR., ALABAMA

“I would love to set [not picking a quarterback] up because I would love to see how we would draft after this. Will Anderson going No. 2 overall to the Houston Texans.” — Sikkema

3. ARIZONA CARDINALS: CB DEVON WITHERSPOON, ILLINOIS

“If I was Arizona — Will Anderson is gone — I'm taking Devon Witherspoon, and I'm not even hesitating about it. … I think he's a great player. I think they have needs at all three levels of the defense. You go get yourself a No. 1 corner and a guy that has a little “FU”, has a little snarl to his game, to kind of lead your new era.” — Rogers

4. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS: QB C.J. STROUD, OHIO STATE

“I think this is a really great scenario for C.J. Stroud. And for a player who is one of the purest pocket passers in this class, I think the offense is already very close to [that]. He would be a great fit in Indianapolis.” — Sikkema

5. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (VIA DEN): OL PETER SKORONSKI, NORTHWESTERN

“In this scenario, [Skoronski] is playing guard. … They've got their two tackles. They had a really nice season last year with a lot of young players that are growing into big roles. And in this spot, if you're not comfortable with Jalen Carter, this is where I pivot to going by my board.” — Rogers

6. DETROIT LIONS (VIA LAR): DI JALEN CARTER, GEORGIA

“Jalen Carter is still here. I'm taking Jalen Carter, man. … Absolute monster, one of the most disruptive players in all of college football over the past two years, incredible three-technique player — just built different.” — Sikkema

7. LAS VEGAS RAIDERS: QB ANTHONY RICHARDSON, FLORIDA

“He can sit and develop. He brings excitement to a franchise out in Vegas. This is the spot for me. … The fact that the Raiders don't have to move, like you highlighted, Trevor — this is just great for them.” — Rogers

8. ATLANTA FALCONS: CB CHRISTIAN GONZALEZ, OREGON

“We've done this one before, but I think it makes too much sense. You've got Gonzalez on one side, you've got A.J. Terrell on the other. And then, obviously, you're throwing in the Jeff Okudah piece into the mix, too.” — Sikkema

9. CHICAGO BEARS (VIA CAR): EDGE TYREE WILSON, TEXAS TECH

“I love his power, his length. He's still figuring it out. The Bears need playmakers up front in this front seven. … He really has no pass-rush plan right now, but he's so freakish he's going to almost sleep-walk into production at times.” — Rogers

10. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (VIA NO): OT DARNELL WRIGHT, TENNESSEE

“I think he is a mean guard. And then you basically say to him, “Hey, man, when Lane Johnson is done, either next year or the year after, you're taking over at [right tackle].” — Sikkema
