The Serby Mock Draft 1.0 breaks with custom, swinging three trades on the high of this quarterback-crazy 2023 draft, together with a transfer from Jets basic supervisor Joe Douglas to the highest 10.
Mock 1 options picks 1-10 – plus Giants GM Joe Schoen with the twenty fifth choose designing a downfield weapon for Daniel Jones.
1. Indianapolis Colts (by Bears)
CJ Stroud (QB, Ohio State)
Paying homage to 1997 when Invoice Parcells, then the Jets GM and with holes in all places, selected OT Orlando Tempo with first general choose and traded down. Bears GM Ryan Poles is in the same boat, answering Colts GM Chris Ballard’s name.
Jim Irsay has given up on the return of Andrew Luck or Jeff Saturday as quarterback, and the fanbase doesn’t care about one other Carson Wentz or Matt Ryan. The Buckeyes’ first sign caller to be drafted into the highest 10 since Artwork Schlicter in 1982 isn’t a raffle. He’s probably the most polished QB within the class and taller than Bryce Younger, so Ballard skips the Texans to get his man.

2. Houston Texans
Bryce Younger (QB, Alabama)
Fired head coach Lovie Smith shall be forgiven for having the audacity to go together with 2 to beat the Colts, giving up the primary general choose within the course of.
“We had Bryce on the helm of our board,” says GM Nick Caserio, in fact. The child is a sidekick and a winner, though some groups are delay by his overwhelming bodily attributes (maybe 6ft, 194lbs). The excellent news is they’ll load it up with breast enchiladas and tacos round city.
3. Arizona Cardinals
Will Anderson (OLB, Alabama)
JJ Watt has retired and Chandler Jones is working in Las Vegas today so new GM Monti Ossenfort has a alternative between this 6ft 4, 243lb go rush demon and disruptive DT Jalen Carter, so his new head coach can work with him Unrestricted Free Agent DE Zach Allen as soon as he’s retained. Any person’s gotta seek out Brock Purdy, proper?
4. Chicago Bears
Jalen Carter (DT, Georgia)
The Poles’ cellphone continues to be ringing as a result of two seductive quarterbacks are nonetheless on the board. However Poles correctly stays in place, choosing the perfect participant within the draft — a 6-foot-3, 300-pound energy participant who may have began on the Bears protection in 1985. The 2022 Bears Protection? It was final in sacks (20) and ppg (27.2). A sobering day for NFC Central RB’s Dalvin Cook dinner, Aaron Jones, AJ Dillon and D’Andre Swift.

5. Carolina Panthers (from Seahawks)
Will Levis (QB, Kentucky)
Seattle GM Jon Schneider has by no means pecked this excessive, and on this taunt, he doesn’t like highs. He’s buying and selling again to lift extra funds for the rebuild that began final 12 months with Russell Wilson’s commerce. Carolina proprietor David Tepper isn’t the affected person sort, and he’s conscious that the Lions, Raiders and Falcons may all have their eye on quarterbacks, so he does like Anthony Molina in “Draft Day” to beg GM Scott Fitterer to seek out his QB of the long run. Sam Darnold can maintain the road till the tool-strong 6-foot-3, 231-pound tower with the large arm is prepared.
6. Detroit Lions
Devon Witherspoon (CB, Illinois)
Head coach Dan Campbell will see a path to a division title if Aaron Rodgers drops out, so GM Brad Holmes refuses to achieve for QB Anthony Richardson and continues to experience or die with Jared Goff. Defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn wants a cornerback greater than one other edge rusher since he has the posh of unleashing Aidan Hutchinson, so we’re giving him a 6-foot-181-pounder that performs with the sort of knee-biting edge that can delight Campbell.
7. Las Vegas Robbers
Peter Skoronki (OT Northwest)
Proprietor Mark Davis spent a lot of the 2021 season icing in head coach Josh McDaniels’ scorching seat. With Derek Carr gone, a McDaniels reunion with Tom Brady makes an excessive amount of sense — particularly Davante Adams, Josh Jacobs and Darren Waller. And Al Davis, the present proprietor’s legendary father, employed the oldest quarterback, 43-year-old George Blanda, to play in a championship recreation after the 1970 season. However 46-year-old statues demand safety, and 2021 first-round OT Alex Leatherwood was a bust. A bookend for LT Kolton Miller is a should.
Anthony Richardson (QB, Florida)
The constructive facet will show irresistible to proprietor Arthur Clean, whose franchise was handed to Justin Fields (and Mac Jones) two years in the past and Kenny Pickett final 12 months earlier than choosing Desmond Ridder within the third spherical. Richardson (6-4, 231) is almost as tall as Josh Allen, with a equally suspect accuracy that goes into the draft. Head coach Arthur Smith wants a stallion to get the ball to TE Kyle Pitts and WR Drake London.
9. Seahawks (from Panthers)
Tyree Wilson (DE, Texas Tech)
“They” (not the ‘Hawks) wrote off Geno Smith. However he doesn’t write again. However you already knew that. What we don’t know is that if he’ll get a profitable extension as a free agent. If he stays head coach Pete Carroll’s sort, then this can be a 6-foot-6, 275-pound freak. Somebody has to seek out Brock Purdy, proper? Uchenna Nwosu (9.5 sacks) can’t do it alone.

10. New York Jets (by Eagles)
Paris Johnson Jr. (OT, Ohio State)
Philly GM Howie Roseman is doing enterprise with former teammate, Jets GM Joe Douglas – who’s a go-getter and go-getter and feels an urgency to maneuver up from thirteenth to overhaul the Titans. Douglas handed OT Ikem Ekwonu to draft Sauce Gardner final season and desires he may rely on Mekhi Becton. Garrett Wilson may give him details about his athletic, 6ft 6, 310lb former teammate. Aaron Rodgers, Derek Carr or Jimmy Garoppolo would greet an Eiffel Tower in entrance of them.
25. New York Giants
Jalin Hyatt (WR, Tennessee)
A 6 foot, 185 pound deep menace at 4.3 pace for Daniel Jones. Hyatt would exchange free agent Darius Slayton if he goes to the Ravens, for instance. Modeled his recreation after Davante Adams. Head coach Brian Daboll can ask his previous pal Nick Saban about Hyatt’s 5 TD catches that led to the Volunteers’ 52-49 win over Alabama. Would complement Isaiah Hodgins properly.
