2023 NFL Mock Draft: Defense Dominates Top 5

Just like that, the regular season in college football is over and the Senior Bowl acceptances and underclassmen declarations are starting to roll in.

 That said, there are still seven weeks remaining in the NFL regular season with plenty still to sort out.

What I love about our weekly NFL mock draft here at The Draft Network is that we get the chance to feel the dynamics of the ever-shifting landscape of the coming draft.

I mean, this is already my fourth time examining the possibilities since the start of the season

and I always love digging into my teammates’ mocks each week.

Without further ado, here’s a logical NFL mock draft scenario based on what we’ve learned to this point.

1. Houston Texans Bryce Young QB, Alabama

The Texans are projected to own the No. 1 overall selection with a roster that has seemingly been littered with holes for the last several years.

2. Chicago Bears Will Anderson Jr. EDGE, Alabama

the Bears have north of $100 million in cap space to accomplish that,

 and they should prioritize finding veteran players to surround their developing young quarterback.

3. Detroit Lions (via LAR) Jalen Carter IDL, Georgia

The Lions have some exciting young defensive talent and adding a talent like Jalen Carter to go with the likes of Aidan Hutchinson

4. Seattle Seahawks (via DEN) Tyree Wilson EDGE, Texas Tech

We know the Seahawks love toolsy prospects and Tyree Wilson is as toolsy as they come.

5. Pittsburgh Steelers Broderick Jones OT, Georgia

 Pat Freiermuth, and George Pickens, finding more talent along the offensive line is a must.
