The 2023 NFL Draft kicks off this Thursday from Kansas City, Missouri, and here, we dive into a full two-round draft week mock draft.
It is officially draft week, as the 2023 NFL Draft will kick off this Thursday with Round 1 action. The three-day event is one of the biggest on the NFL calendar each year, and for many organizations, this could be a franchise-changing weekend for all the right or wrong reasons.
Now, let us take one more crack at the first two rounds of the 2023 NFL Draft.
2023 NFL Draft: Official Draft Week full two-round mock
QB, Carolina Panthers
For most of the draft season, the question raged as to whether or not it would be Bryce Young from Alabama or CJ Stroud from Ohio State as the No. 1 overall pick. In recent weeks, it appears that Young has moved ahead of Stroud, canceling the rest of his official visits, and the oddsmakers have him as the clear favorite to hear his name called first.
Carolina has been in quarterback purgatory for some time now, and the arrival of Young should breathe new life into the franchise. This is a quarterback who may not have the ideal size you look for in a franchise guy, but is equipped with the skill set to come in and be an impact player at the NFL level for years to come.
QB, Houston Texans
The Houston Texans hold the No. 2 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, and this is where the draft could get interesting. There are plenty of teams looking to move up in the first round, but with quarterback issues, the Texans should stay put and draft Ohio State star CJ Stroud with the pick after Young.
Stroud is having a rough go over the last few weeks as we inch closer to the draft, but there is no denying his talent. In the end, I believe he will be the second quarterback off the board, and won’t have to wait long to hear his name called.
