1. NFL Team Logo for Commanders Washington Commanders: Caleb Williams, QB, USC

2023 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/25): Jaelyn Duncan, OT

Washington needs a true franchise quarterback.

Williams (6-1, 218) started out the 2021 season as the backup quarterback to Spencer Rattler at Oklahoma, but after Rattler struggled, Williams replaced him as the starter and put together an excellent year, completing 65 percent of his passes for 1,912 yards, 21 touchdowns and four interceptions. He also hurt defenses on the ground with six rushing touchdowns and lots of yardage. After the season, Williams transferred to USC to follow former Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley. Williams could put together a massive 2023 season and be a high first-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. He has played well in 2022, completing 65 percent of his passes for 3,480 yards, 33 touchdowns and three interceptions.

2. NFL Team Logo for Texans Houston Texans: Michael Hall Jr., DT, Ohio State

2023 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/25): C.J. Stroud, QB; and Isaiah Foskey, DE

The Texans have a weak defensive line and need multiple talent upgrades. Assuming Jon Greenard could be in the ball park of Whitney Mercilus, they still need to find replacements for J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney.

Hall has enjoyed an impressive start to the 2022 season, showing speed and playmaking ability at the point of attack. While Hall (6-2, 290) is a little light, he is fast off the ball with the ability to fire his gap. Hall has 18 tackles and 4.5 sacks so far in 2022, but it looks like he is just scratching the surface of his potential.

3. NFL Team Logo for Falcons Atlanta Falcons: Maason Smith, DT, LSU

2023 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/25): Tanner McKee, QB

Grady Jarrett won't play forever, and the Falcons could use a defensive tackle to go with Arnold Ebiketie.

Smith was a dynamic freshman for the Tigers, and the former 5-star recruit made an instant impact for them. In his freshman season, he totaled four sacks and 19 tackles. The 6-foot-5, 298-pounder has excellent size and length with the upside to build on his fantastic debut. There was a ton of hype coming from LSU that he was poised to have a monster 2022 season, but he suffered a torn ACL in the season opener against Florida State and is out for the year.

4. NFL Team Logo for Broncos Denver Broncos: J.C. Latham, OT, Alabama

2023 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/25): Tuli Tuipulotu, DE

The Broncos could use more offensive line talent.

The 6-foot-6, 326-pound Latham has a good skill set and upside. He could start at guard or tackle and emerge as another top offensive line prospect from Alabama.


5. NFL Team Logo for Jaguars Jacksonville Jaguars: Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State

2023 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/25): Joey Porter Jr., CB

The Jaguars grab a No. 1 receiver for Trevor Lawrence.

Harrison is enjoying a breakout sophomore season in 2022, recording 65 receptions for 1,037 yards and 11 touchdowns so far. He has been a dynamic mismatch weapon for C.J. Stroud. The 6-foot-4, 205-pounder has excellent height and length with speed to get downfield. Harrison runs routes like a smaller receiver, and he obviously learned a lot from his Hall of Fame father.


6. NFL Team Logo for Bears Chicago Bears: J.T. Tuimoloau, DE, Ohio State

2023 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/25): Will Anderson, DE

After trading Khalil Mack and Robert Quinn, the Bears need multiple edge rushers.

As a redshirt freshman in 2022, Tuimoloau is having a good season for the Buckeyes, showing an ability to produce big plays. Tuimoloau has 24 tackles, 3.5 sacks, one forced fumble, two interceptions and two passes defended on the year. He could rise if his pass-rush and sack production improves in 2023.


7. NFL Team Logo for Jets New York Jets: Anthony Richardson, QB, Florida

2023 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/25): Quentin Johnston, WR

I had Justin Fields rated ahead of Zach Wilson, Trey Lance and Mac Jones for 2023 NFL Draft. Fields has proven me right, while Wilson is headed toward being another busted quarterback for the Jets. Here's a risky prospect with massive upside.

In 2022, Richardson has completed 56 percent of his passes for 2,351 yards, 14 touchdowns and eight interceptions. On the ground, he has 588 yards and nine touchdowns. He was excellent against Utah in the 2022 opener, leading Florida to a comeback win, but he was horrible against Kentucky, costing the Gators a win due to horrible accuracy and turnovers. After playing poorly versus South Florida, Richardson had a huge day taking on Tennessee. Thus, he is far too raw and inconsistent to be a viable NFL starter. Richardson definitely needs to return to school for 2023 to improve before going pro.

Richardson has a lot of room for improvement on accuracy, making short routine throws, field vision, decision making, and confident. Richardson has an amazing skill set that is reminiscent of a shorter Cam Newton's. However, former Gators head coach Dan Mullen did not play Richardson much, who also dealt with some injuries in 2021. In 2021, Richardson completed 38-of-64 passes for 529 yards, six touchdowns and five interceptions. He also was a dynamic runner who scored three touchdowns on the ground. Richardson has a cannon for an arm, speed as a runner, and the size and strength to plow through defenders. The 6-foot-4, 236-pounder has a ton of upside.


8. NFL Team Logo for Lions Detroit Lions: Dallas Turner, OLB, Alabama

2023 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/25): Bijan Robinson, RB; and Cam Smith, CB

The Lions could use linebacker talent and more edge rush to go across from Aidan Hutchinson. Here's a talent who can help them at both spots.

With Will Anderson commanding attention on the other side in 2021, Turner (6-4, 245) had a phenomenal freshman debut for the Crimson Tide. Turner showed serious pass-rush potential in 2021 with 8.5 sacks and 30 tackles while rotating with other defenders. Thus far this year, he has 35 tackles and four sacks. Turner will probably build on his freshman season and could be even better in 2023. He has a good skill set with upside.


9. NFL Team Logo for Vikings Minnesota Vikings: Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB, Alabama

2023 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/25): Felix Anudike-Uzomah, DE

The Vikings could use more youth at cornerback.

McKinstry notched 26 tackles, an interception, a pass broken up and a sack in 2021. The 6-foot-1, 188-pounder has the size and talent to rise as he gains experience. So far this season, McKinstry has recorded 30 tackles, a sack, an interception and 12 passes broken up.


10. NFL Team Logo for Giants New York Giants: Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

2023 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/25): Jaylon Jones, CB

The Giants take mismatch weapon and a potential star.

Bowers was a freshman sensation for the Bulldogs in 2021 and was a huge receiving weapon in helping them win their first National Championship since 1980. Immediately, Bowers (6-4, 230) was a mismatch threat with excellent speed, athleticism, and run-after-the-catch ability. In 2021, Bowers recorded 56 receptions for 882 yards and 13 touchdowns. The Bulldogs have other good young talent at tight end and wide receiver, so Bowers doesn't get everything funneled his way, as they spread the ball around, but Bowers is definitely special prospect for the NFL. In 2022, he has 41 receptions for 625 yards and four touchdowns.

11. NFL Team Logo for Steelers Pittsburgh Steelers: Javion Cohen, G, Alabama

2023 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/25): Peter Skoronski, OT

The Steelers could use more youth on the defensive line with Cam Heyward aging and Stephon Tuitt having retired.

Cohen saw only 27 snaps as a backup in 2020, but he was still an All-SEC Freshman Team selection. In 2021, Cohen won the starting left guard spot and played well for Alabama. He did a very good job of opening holes for Brian Robinson and was consistent at protecting Bryce Young. Cohen (6-4, 305) has a good skill set and could rise as as an upperclassman.

12. NFL Team Logo for Panthers Carolina Panthers: Bralon Trice, DE, Washington

2023 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/25): Bryce Young, QB

By the time of the 2024 NFL Draft, the Panthers could be looking for an edge rusher to go with Brian Burns.

Trice is having an excellent sophomore season in 2022, recording 30 tackles and seven sacks so far. The 6-foot-4, 256-pounder has a good skill set with upside to develop.


13. NFL Team Logo for Raiders Las Vegas Raiders: Jack Nelson, OT, Wisconsin

2023 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/25): Jalen Carter, DT

The Raiders could use some young talent for their offensive line.

Nelson is Wisconsin's starting left tackle, and the redshirt sophomore has flashed ability in 2022. The 6-foot-7, 310-pounder possesses excellent size and upside to improve as he gains experience.

14. NFL Team Logo for Patriots New England Patriots: Chico Bennett Jr., DE, Virginia

2023 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/25): Jordan Addison, WR

The Patriots could use a young difference maker for their defensive line.

Bennett is enjoying a breakout 2022 season with seven sacks, 34 tackles and two forced fumbles thus far. He has shown vast improvement over his underclassmen seasons. Bennett (6-4, 252) could stand to get stronger for the NFL. He will need to at least stay consistent with, if not build on, his 2022 season in 2023 to be an early-round prospect for the 2024 NFL Draft.

15. NFL Team Logo for Dolphins Miami Dolphins: Cole Bishop, S, Utah

2023 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/25): None

By the time of the 2024 NFL Draft, the Dolphins could be looking to get more safety talent to go with Jevon Holland.

Bishop (6-2, 206) only started half the 2021 season, but he played really well for the Utes with 54 tackles, three sacks and five passes broken up. If Bishop builds on his performance as a sophomore and a junior, he could definitely rise for the 2024 NFL Draft. So far this year, Bishop has 66 tackles, 1.5 sacks, an interception and three passes defended.


16. NFL Team Logo for Titans Tennessee Titans: Donovan Jackson, G, Ohio State

2023 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 11/25): Michael Mayer, TE

The Titans need more offensive line talent.

The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Jackson has been a tough blocker for the Buckeyes, blasting open holes in the ground game and doing a steady job of protecting C.J. Stroud. Jackson has upside to develop as he gains experience.
