Athletic mock from today Top 6 picks


Recommended Posts

1. Chicago Bears: Will Anderson Jr., Edge, Alabama

2  Houston Texans   C J Stroud, QB, Ohio Stat: C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State 


3. Carolina Panthers(via Arizona): Anthony Richardson, QB, Florida*

With the first quarterback off the board and multiple teams ahead of them desperate to find their franchise guy, the Panthers open the Frank Reich era with a splash, trading up and taking a major swing on the biggest lottery ticket in the draft.

Anthony Richardson’s tape doesn’t make him the cleanest QB prospect to evaluate, but he’s more polished than his reputation lets on. His footwork and feel in the pocket indicate comfort in chaos, which is impressive given how easy it would be for him to tuck and run at the first sign of trouble. He has some off-target throws but not as many awful decisions, and his dynamic ability to create offense would give Carolina the juice to establish a new offensive identity.



4. Indianapolis Colts: Will Levis, QB, Kentucky

If I had to pick a team most likely to trade up to No. 1, it’d be the Colts. No matter what happens with Indianapolis’ coaching search, this team isn’t leaving the offseason with another veteran retread at quarterback.

Here, they take Will Levis, who — when he has had the right supporting cast around him — has played just as well as any quarterback in this class. The Colts’ running backs and receiving corps are interesting, but for Levis to maximize those pieces and help out his offensive line, the Colts would have to allow him to do something Kentucky wouldn’t: use his legs. If we see more of Levis’ athletic potential, the tools are all there.


5. Seattle Seahawks (via Denver): Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia


6. New York Jets (via Detroit/L.A. Rams): Bryce Young, QB, Alabama*

Another big trade, with the Jets ensuring that they’re not left out in the cold in the quarterback sweepstakes. After the Zach Wilson saga in 2022, Jets coach Robert Saleh needs an immediate answer to fix an offense that has yet to look promising during his tenure.

Bryce Young is the quarterback the Jets were convinced Wilson was. He escapes pressure, keeps his eyes downfield and makes every throw. In spite of his size — which I expect to be a major talking point when the measurements are official — Young stands tall in the pocket and accepts that he will need to take hits. If the Jets’ offensive line were to stay upright and give Young time to throw, their passing game could take a leap in 2023.

Richardson will likely be available at 9 if the Panthers want him.

Trading up to 3 in the draft would be a strong indication that Marty Hurney is back in the building. 

It'll be interesting to watch his draft stock. So much is going to depend on his interviews. He's definitely a guy I could see rising or falling.
