As I’m writing this, I’ll be heading back from the 2023 Reese’s Senior Bowl.

It was a great chance to not only watching some of the top prospects in the 2023 NFL Draft, but it was also a great opportunity to get an up-close view of the media side of things. I got the chance to meet many people, some of whom I had known online for years but never met before, while others I became acquainted with for the first time.

The all-star circuit wrapping up concludes the first big period of the pre-draft process, and while there’s still plenty of time between now and the draft, the Senior Bowl saw several prospects improve their stock. Because of this, it seems like a good time to go for a fun little two-round mock draft!

Before we begin, it’s worth mentioning this mock draft is what I think could happen, not necessarily what I would do with each pick. There may be some picks that make you go, “why is Jacob so high on that prospect?”, so just know that’s my prediction of the NFL being high on that particular prospect. It might not have anything to do with how I view them.

I also have two trades in Round 1 of my mock draft. More will likely happen in real life, but I thought including two trades would be a nice starting point at this point in the pre-draft process.

With that in the rearview mirror, let’s dig into a mock draft, shall we?
