Full 2-round 2023 NFL Mock Draft: Browns make difficult decision
17. Green Bay Packers: Darnell Washington, TE, Georgia
Darnell Washington is a unit. He was hurt in the Peach Bowl but if healthy by the draft, he could fly up the boards.
18. Detroit Lions: Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame
Michael Mayer is more well-rounded than Washington and probably a safer pick. Detroit won’t be sad to land him, even if Washington becomes a star.
19. Jacksonville Jaguars: Christian Gonzalez, CB, Oregon
Christian Gonzalez could turn into the best corner in this class.
20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: O’Cyrus Torrence, OG, Florida
The Bucs line is bad. O’Cyrus Torrence is not.
21. Washington Commanders: Trenton Simpson, LB, Clemson
There’s nothing Trenton Simpson can’t do.
22. Miami Dolphins: Forfeited
All that cheating and nothing to show for it.
23. New York Giants: Isaiah Foskey, EDGE, Notre Dame
The Giants pairing Isaiah Foskey with Kayvon Thibodeaux could be dangerous.
24. Los Angeles Chargers: Jordan Addison, WR, USC
Mike Williams is great but gets hurt a lot. Keenan Allen is getting up there in age. Justin Herbert gets another weapon with youth and durability.
25. Baltimore Ravens: Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina
With a couple of corners hitting free agency, the Ravens add Cam Smith.
26. Denver Broncos: (via San Francisco 49ers through Miami Dolphins): B.J. Ojulari, EDGE, LSU
They traded Bradley Chubb so they could replace Bradley Chubb.
27. Cincinnati Bengals: Darnell Wright, OT, Tennessee
The search for a good offensive line continues.
28. Dallas Cowboys: Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State
Dallas has been good but their offense is missing something without Amari Cooper. Jaxon Smith-Njigba isn’t as fast but he’s as smooth of a route-runner.
29. Kansas City Chiefs: Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas
This would be unfair, but it could happen.
30. Minnesota Vikings: Joey Porter, Jr., CB, Penn State
The son of a Steeler linebacker, Joey Porter, Jr. is a long and physical cornerback that could become a star.
31. Buffalo Bills: Clark Phillips III, CB, Utah
More secondary help for one of the best teams in the AFC.
32. Philadelphia Eagles: Siaki Ika, DT, Baylor
This would also be unfair.
