Editor's note: This mock draft originally posted on March 7, but it was updated on March 11 following a Panthers-Bears trade involving top-10 picks.
What a wild week of 2023 NFL draft intrigue! After wrapping up at the combine, teams started making offseason moves ahead of free agency. And on Friday night, the Carolina Panthers dealt a massive trade package to the Chicago Bears to move up to No. 1 overall. So with that in mind, I'm tweaking my original mock draft picks from earlier this week and resetting the first round after Carolina's bold move. Which QB goes to the Panthers? What will the Bears do at No. 9? And how does the deal change things for the rest of the NFL?
We're getting closer to the real thing on April 27, but we still have pro days and plenty of prospect interviews on deck. Nothing is set in stone, including specific team needs. But here's how all 31 picks for Round 1 of the 2023 draft are shaping up after an eventful few days at the combine and the big trade. (Five teams do not have a pick in the first round, including the Miami Dolphins, who were stripped of their selection for tampering violations.) Oh, and be sure to check out my "SportsCenter" Mock Draft Special for more on the picks.
