The NFL Draft is a little over three weeks away. Time to take a look at my top 100 prospects in the 2023 draft class. 

1. Jalen Carter – Defensive Tackle, Georgia

There is a lot surrounding Carter and his draft stock, but his play and tape is too good to pass up on. Strong as a run defender, and a freak pass rusher, Carter is dominant in every sense of the word.

2. Will Anderson Jr. – Edge Rusher, Alabama

Anderson is as close to a sure-thing prospect as you can find. Even though he’s slightly undersized, Anderson is a three-down lineman who thrives as an edge rusher, but more than holds his own against the run. Anderson has All-Pro potential from day one.  

3. Bryce Young – Quarterback, Alabama

Sure, size may be important… But Bryce Young’s talent is generational. He’s a game changer and a face of the franchise. Elite accuracy, poise in the pocket, top notch anticipation. Young is THAT guy and will prove the doubters wrong. 

4. Paris Johnson Jr. – Offensive Tackle, Ohio State

A massive, monster of a man who excels as a run blocker and is stout as a pass blocker. Johnson is long-armed and freakishly strong. He has all the makings of a franchise left tackle. 

5. Tyree Wilson – Edge Rusher, Texas Tech

Wilson is this year’s Travon Walker. Freak athlete with freakish size. He is a versatile edge rusher who can kick inside and succeed at any spot on the line. He has to develop a pass rush arsenal, but he has the tools to immediately succeed. 

6. Myles Murphy – Edge Rusher, Clemson

A solid athlete with an elite get-off and burst, Murphy has the tools to be an elite edge from the jump. He can long-arm with the best of them and can wreck the run game with a ridiculous first-step. He needs to develop a more consistent pass rush plan, but with the right development he can be a three-down player for several years. 

7. Bijan Robinson – Running Back, Texas

If Robinson played any other position, he would be inside the top five. Robinson is a better prospect than Saquan Barkley or Ezekiel Elliott, and I say that with ease. He’s a surefire Pro Bowler and future All-Pro at the position. Let’s just hope he has Adrian Peterson’s longevity. 

8. C.J. Stroud – Quarterback, Ohio State

One of the most accurate and pure passers that we have ever seen, Stroud is the most NFL ready quarterback in this class. He has the highest floor, but maybe not the highest ceiling. Put a solid core around Stroud and he can make the team a winner. 

9. Christian Gonzalez – Cornerback, Oregon

Gonzalez has been my CB1 since Day One. He’s an elite athlete with long arms and top-notch ball skills. He may not be the best as a press-man corner, but with some extra strength, he could be one of the top corners in the game. 

10. Michael Mayer – Tight End, Notre Dame

Everyone is infatuated with this tight end class, and Mayer is head and shoulders above the rest. Sure, he may not be a top-tier athlete, but he does everything well. Mayer can block, he can catch, and has done so from an early age.
