Andrew Aziz’s 2 Round NFL Mock Draft — One and Only

Syndication: Detroit Free Press Joshua L. Jones / USA TODAY NETWORK

1st Round

1st Overall Pick — Carolina Panthers
Bryce Young — Quarterback — Alabama

Young is the heavy odds-on favourite to be picked 1st overall and he’s probably the most prepared QB in this class. Panthers made the bold move to trade up and now they’ll be rewarded with a potential franchise changing player.

2nd — Houston Texans
Will Levis — Quarterback — Kentucky

There have been recent reports of Levis being the pick here, so even though I don’t agree with it, it seems as if the Texans fell in love with his arm and his muscles.

3rd — Arizona Cardinals
Tyree Wilson — Edge Rusher — Texas Tech

Cardinals seem to really like a few guys here (Wilson or Gonzalez especially), but I think they go with Wilson to help build their defense from the ground up.

4th — Indianapolis Colts
CJ Stroud — Quarterback — Ohio State

This is a dream scenario for the Colts as they walk away with the best pure passer in this class. He might not be as ready or explosive as the other quarterbacks, but he’s the most accurate passer and has a strong arm that can make all the throws on top of his great athleticism and improvisational ability.

5th — Seattle Seahawks
Will Anderson — Edge Rusher — Alabama

This is also an ideal scenario for the Seahawks, as they get arguably the best player in the draft and fill a very big need.

6th — Detroit Lions
Devon Witherspoon — Cornerback — Illinois

Witherspoon has been linked to the Lions and is the current favourite to land in this spot. He fits a big need for the Lions who struggled mightily defended against the pass last season.

7th — Las Vegas Raiders
Jalen Carter — Defensive Tackle — Georgia

Carter is a wildcard in this draft and a lot of the draft depends on where he lands; the recent news indicates he won’t leave the top 10 so the Raiders makes a lot of sense for him and their history indicates they don’t mind questionable charcaters.

8th — Houston Texans (from Atlanta Falcons)
Texans trade the 12th pick + 2023 3rd round pick for the 8th pick
Jaxon Smith-Njigba — Wide Receiver — Ohio State

I see the Texans trading up to get JSN so that they can pair their new QB with the top receiver to start the rebuild of their offense.

9th — Tennessee Titans (from Chicago Bears)
Titans trade the 11th overall pick + 2023 3rd round pick for the 9th overall pick
Anthony Richardson — Quarterback — Florida

Of the big four quarterbacks, it seems that Richardson is the one who is likeliest to slide outside the top 5 as of this writing and if that’s the case, I can see the Titans not taking any chances and pouncing on A-Rich, who falls into a great situation as he can sit and learn behind Tannehill for a season.

10th — Philadelphia Eagles
Nolan Smith — Edge Rusher — Georgia

The Eagles can go multiple directions here, but bolstering an aging defensive line is probably the safest way to go.

11th — Chicago Bears (from Tennessee Titans)
Paris Johnson — Offensive Tackle — Ohio State

12th — Atlanta Falcons (from Houston Texans)
Bijan Robinson — Running Back — Texas

13th — Seattle Seahawks (from New York Jets via Green Bay Packers)
Seahawks trade the 20th pick + 52nd pick for the 13th pick
Darnell Wright — Offensive Tackle — Tennessee

14th — New England Patriots
Christian Gonzalez — Cornerback — Oregon

15th — Atlanta Falcons (from Green Bay Packers via New York Jets)
Falcons trade the 44th pick + 2023 3rd Round Pick + 2024 2nd Round Pick for 15th pick

16th — Washington Commanders
Joey Porter Jr — Cornerback — Penn State

Broderick Jones — Offensive Tackle — Georgia

44th — Indianapolis Colts (from Atlanta Falcons via Green Bay Packers)
Colts acquire a 5th round pick and a 2024 3rd round pick from the Packers in addition to this pick to move back 9 spots
Jalin Hyatt — Wide Receiver — Tennessee

The Colts add a dynamic deep threat receiver with incredible speed that will stretch defenses and open things underneath for Michael Pittman Jr.
