Lost in the Jalen Hurts injury news is that the Eagles had six sacks of Justin Fields in the closer-than-expected Week 15 win over the Bears in Chicago. 

Their 55 sacks entering the slate of Christmas Eve games leads the NFL, but in this mock, Philadelphia goes back to the well along the defensive line to add more youth to a unit that does feature elder veterans like Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham

There's not a No. 23 pick here, as that's the pick the Dolphins forfeited due to tampering violations. 

One other thing, and this is an important: the draft order below is now the official order based on team records and tiebreakers.

NFL Mock Draft
Round 1
Round 1 - Pick 1
Alabama • Soph • 5'10" / 204 lbs
Projected Team
Houston
PROSPECT RNK
2nd
POSITION RNK
1st
This may not be an absolute slam-dunk selection we know will happen at the early stages of the pre-draft process. But I do think Houston will eventually settle on Young with the top pick. Young's size will be the only knock on him during the pre-draft process. He has a strong arm, pinpoint accuracy, and poise well beyond his years.
Round 1 - Pick 2
Alabama • Soph • 6'4" / 243 lbs
Projected Team
Chicago
PROSPECT RNK
1st
POSITION RNK
1st
Anderson would be the ideal pick for the Bears at No. 2 overall. He's an elite edge-rusher prospect.
Round 1 - Pick 3
Georgia • Soph • 6'3" / 314 lbs
Projected Team
Seattle
PROSPECT RNK
4th
POSITION RNK
1st
Carter is incredibly disruptive and athletic, and is exactly what the Seahawks need on the interior of their defensive line.
Round 1 - Pick 4
Ohio State • Soph • 6'3" / 218 lbs
Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
3rd
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Lions get their quarterback of the future with a pick received in the Matthew Stafford deal from 2021. Even if they view Jared Goff as their entrenched starter in 2023, it would be a smart team-building practice.
Round 1 - Pick 5
Northwestern • Soph • 6'4" / 313 lbs
Projected Team
Arizona
PROSPECT RNK
7th
POSITION RNK
1st
The Cardinals need to upgrade the offensive line for Kyler Murray. Skoronski isn't a crazy athlete but has super-clean film.

Kentucky • Soph • 6'4" / 229 lbs
Projected Team
Indianapolis
PROSPECT RNK
6th
POSITION RNK
3rd
The Colts have to look to the draft for the future at the quarterback spot. Levis can be that guy.
Round 1 - Pick 7
Clemson • Soph • 6'5" / 270 lbs
Projected Team
Atlanta
PROSPECT RNK
5th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Falcons desperately need more outside pass rush, and Murphy is a high-upside defender.
Round 1 - Pick 8
Florida • Soph • 6'4" / 244 lbs
Projected Team
Carolina
PROSPECT RNK
19th
POSITION RNK
4th
The Panthers finally go the draft route at the quarterback spot with Richardson, who's raw but could be an All-Pro in three seasons.
Round 1 - Pick 9
Texas Tech • Soph • 6'6" / 275 lbs
Projected Team
Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK
18th
POSITION RNK
3rd
The Eagles need to get a little younger at the edge-rusher position. Wilson is long and versatile with a unique body type.
Round 1 - Pick 10
South Carolina • Soph • 6'1" / 180 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
31st
POSITION RNK

Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
34th
POSITION RNK
4th
If Bresee decides to enter the 2023 class, he has the athletic profile to go this early. The Jaguars defensive front needs a specimen like him on the inside.
Round 1 - Pick 12
TCU • Soph • 6'4" / 215 lbs
Projected Team
Houston
PROSPECT RNK
23rd
POSITION RNK
2nd
Home-run first two picks for Houston here. Young at No. 1 overall and the receiver who'll likely be the consensus WR1 in the class.
Round 1 - Pick 13
Ohio State • Soph • 6'6" / 313 lbs
Projected Team
Pittsburgh
PROSPECT RNK
17th
POSITION RNK
2nd

Round 1 - Pick 15
Alabama • Soph • 6'0" / 203 lbs
Projected Team
Seattle
PROSPECT RNK
13th
POSITION RNK
3rd
The Seahawks have young, fun talent in the secondary, but adding another multi-dimensional piece would be a welcomed addition. That's precisely what Branch is.
Round 1 - Pick 16
USC • Soph • 5'11" / 175 lbs
Projected Team
New England
PROSPECT RNK
22nd
POSITION RNK
1st
Bill Belichick doesn't have a great history drafting first-round wideouts. It's needed now, though. Addison is a slippery, route-running maestro.
Round 1 - Pick 17
Oklahoma • Soph • 6'5" / 315 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Jets
PROSPECT RNK
26th
POSITION RNK
4th

Georgia • Soph • 6'2" / 207 lbs
Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
10th
POSITION RNK
1st
The Lions are playing like a respectable defense now. A springy, ball-hawking outside corner wouldn't hurt this club in the future.
Round 1 - Pick 19
Georgia • Soph • 6'5" / 311 lbs
Projected Team
Tampa Bay
PROSPECT RNK
21st
POSITION RNK
3rd
The Buccaneers pick Jones to be the heir apparent to Donovan Smith at left tackle.
Round 1 - Pick 20
Ohio State • Soph • 6'0" / 197 lbs
Projected Team
Tennessee
PROSPECT RNK
25th
POSITION RNK
3rd
The Titans have shown a willingness to pick injured players early in the draft, and Smith-Njigba barely played in 2022. He was sensational the season before, often outshining Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson.
Round 1 - Pick 21
Florida • Soph • 6'5" / 347 lbs
Projected Team
Washington
PROSPECT RNK
9th
POSITION RNK
1st
The Commanders have two guards set to hit free agency, and Torrence is the big, mauling type they like at that position.
Round 1 - Pick 22
Clemson • Soph • 6'2" / 238 lbs
Projected Team
L.A. Chargers
PROSPECT RNK
38th
POSITION RNK
1st
Simpson is one of most springy linebackers in the class. He'd be a fun defender to add to this defense.
Round 1 - Pick 24
Oregon • Soph • 6'2" / 205 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Giants
PROSPECT RNK
24th
POSITION RNK
4th
The Giants have dealt with plenty of injuries on the defensive side this season and need to get a true No. 1 outside corner on this roster. Gonzalez is that type of defender.
Round 1 - Pick 25
Utah • Soph • 5'10" / 183 lbs
Projected Team
Baltimore
PROSPECT RNK
32nd
POSITION RNK
6th
Phillips is a super-productive man-to-man cornerback who'll add more youth to the Ravens secondary.

Florida State • 6'4" / 260 lbs
Projected Team
Denver
PROSPECT RNK
11th
POSITION RNK

Verse may not leave Florida State after one spectacular season with the Seminoles. If he does, this pairing is super logical near the end of the first round.
Round 1 - Pick 27
Arkansas • Soph • 6'5" / 234 lbs
Projected Team
Dallas
PROSPECT RNK
29th
POSITION RNK

Cincinnati

Duncan is a talented dancing bear on the outside who can start at right tackle and eventually play left tackle if needed.
Round 1 - Pick 30
LSU • Soph • 6'2" / 248 lbs
Projected Team
Minnesota
PROSPECT RNK
42nd
POSITION RNK
8th
The Vikings get a youthful, highly skilled rusher to learn from the likes of Danielle Hunter and Za'Darius Smith at the outset of his pro career.
Round 1 - Pick 31
North Carolina • Soph • 5'9" / 171 lbs
Projected Team
Buffalo
PROSPECT RNK
47th

Downs is a smaller, bouncy wideout who'd be a dynamic addition to the Bills offense.
Round 1 - Pick 32
Texas • Soph • 5'11" / 215 lbs
Projected Team
Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK
16th
POSITION RNK
