2023 NFL Draft Stock Up

Anthony Richardson, QB, Florida
Richardson did well enough at his pro day to solidify his standing as the consensus third quarterback for the 2023 NFL Draft. In Gainesville, Richardson showed off his rocket arm and dangerous running ability with rare athleticism. I have Richardson going fourth overall in my 2023 NFL Mock Draft, and he looks like he has a real shot at going that high to the Colts, or perhaps the Ravens if they trade Lamar Jackson to Indianapolis. The interview portion of the draft process has gone well for Richardson as well. Come the first night of the 2023 NFL Draft, Richardson should not have a long wait.

Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU
Johnston did not run the 40 at NFL Scouting Combine, but he did at the TCU pro day, and he ran it. His times were in the high 4.4s and around 4.50. That is an excellent range for a 6-foot-3, 220-pound wide receiver. With his size and speed, Johnston definitely has No. 1 receiver potential for the NFL. While Johnston needs to work on his hands, he has a very good skill set with size, speed, athleticism, route-running, and big-play ability. He looks likely to go as high as the middle of the first round during the 2023 NFL Draft. He should not fall out of the mid-20s.

Lukas Van Ness, DE, Iowa
Some teams picking late in the top 10 are giving consideration to Van Ness. Along with being big and quick, Van Ness has the flexibility to play a variety of techniques up front. Teams prefer a combination of versatility and size, and that is helping him to rise during these the final weeks before the 2023 NFL Draft. Van Ness could go as high as to the Raiders at pick No. 7 and probably won’t slip into the 20s.

Jonathan Mingo, WR, Ole Miss
Mingo is a sleeper who has not gotten a lot of media attention, but there are a number of teams that have revealed that really like him. They like his size, quickness, and run-after-the-catch ability. Teams see Mingo as a perfect as an X receiver. He probably won’t get out the second round in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Paris Johnson, OT, Ohio State
Johnson has aced the leadup to the 2023 NFL Draft. He has interviewed well with teams, impressing in terms of his character, intelligence, and athletic versatility. Johnson is a smooth mover with upside. Teams like his flexibility, as he could start out at guard or right tackle in the NFL. Johnson could end up as a top-10 choice for the 2023 NFL Draft.

2023 NFL Draft Stock Down

Gervon Dexter, DT, Florida
The 2023 NFL Draft is not strong at the defensive tackle position, so Dexter had a good opportunity to be a riser, but he has not impressed enough in postseason workouts. Dexter has a good skill set, but his senior tape was not as good as his 2021 performance. In my 2023 NFL Mock Draft I still have Dexter going on the second day, but the chances of him sliding to the third day have increased.
