    After 3 tries, I finally have the perfect draft.

    pick 2: Best available between Bryce and Stroud
    pick 21: Best Defensive player available in the talented class left, Nolan. The Board has a meltdown when the Chargers pick Lukas with our pick.
    Pick 33: Best TE available for the KidKubes system..... but wait......there is a coveted receiver who is falling. He reminds you of a taller Deebo. It's pick 25 and he's still there! You couldn't help yourself. You used your 33 and 73 and got the receiver because health concerns plagues your entire WR room.

    Pick 54: Now you choose the best TE available for your system, 4realz this time.

    Pick 65: Your future Center Nick Broeker. You play him at RT at G and then Center. Haha just kidding. Luke Wypler is the pick.

    With a new team picking No. 1, the first wave of free agency behind us and the 2023 NFL Draft just over a month away, the first round is starting to come into focus, but some mysteries remain.

    Our NFL reporters gathered for the second of three virtual mock drafts this spring. As with our first beat writer mock last month, we encouraged our writers to trade picks to move up or down as they saw fit, and there was wheeling and dealing throughout Round 1. Here’s how it played out:

    1. Carolina Panthers (from CHI): C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State

    It’s an important week for the Panthers’ decision-makers, with the pro days of C.J. Stroud, Bryce Young and Will Levis on consecutive days, beginning Wednesday in Columbus. (Anthony Richardson’s is March 30.) The Panthers are comfortable with a couple of the top four quarterbacks, as The Athletic has reported. That would suggest Stroud and Young.

    But Frank Reich has a type when it comes to quarterbacks, all of whom have been 6-foot-2 or taller (the majority have been 6-4 and up). Reich also values accuracy. That combination points to the 6-3, 214-pound Stroud, who has impressed with his ball placement and throwing mechanics. The one knock on Stroud was his unwillingness to make plays with his feet. Then he showed off his athleticism in the College Football Playoff semifinal against a Georgia defense teeming with NFL prospects, and everyone took notice. — Joe Person

    2. Houston Texans: Bryce Young, QB, Alabama

    It’s no secret the Texans are drafting a quarterback, and with the Panthers jumping up to take Stroud, Houston winds up with the QB many regard as the best in this class. Yes, Young is a bit undersized, but he seemingly has all of the other physical skills and intangibles necessary to succeed in this league. With offensive coordinator Bobby Slowik having followed DeMeco Ryans to Houston to run the Shanahan offense, the Texans will support Young with a strong run game to set up the play-action passing attack while also moving him out of the pocket with roll-outs and keepers to help ensure his stature isn’t a problem. — Mike Jones

    3. Arizona Cardinals: Will Anderson, edge, Alabama
    4. Indianapolis Colts: Anthony Richardson, QB, Florida
    5. Seattle Seahawks (from DEN): Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia
    6. Detroit Lions (from LAR): Tyree Wilson, edge, Texas Tech
    7. Minnesota Vikings (from LV): Will Levis, QB, Kentucky | Trade details: Vikings send No. 23, 70 and a 2024 first-round pick to the Raiders for No. 7 and 204
    8. Atlanta Falcons: Myles Murphy, edge, Clemson
    9. Chicago Bears (from CAR): Peter Skoronski, OT/G, Northwestern
    10. Philadelphia Eagles (from NO): Christian Gonzalez, CB, Oregon
    11. Tennessee Titans: Paris Johnson, OT, Ohio State
    12. Houston Texans (from CLE): Jordan Addison, WR, USC

    Having addressed quarterback, the Texans turn their attention to further upgrading his supporting cast. Houston signed veterans Dalton Schultz and Robert Woods and traded the disgruntled Brandin Cooks. Now they grab one of the top wide receivers in this year’s draft and will pair him with their rookie quarterback, giving themselves a young playmaker to help in the immediate and long-term future. — Jones

    13. New York Jets: Broderick Jones, OT, Georgia
    14. New England Patriots: Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State
    15. Green Bay Packers: Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah
    16. Las Vegas Raiders (from WAS): Devon Witherspoon, CB, Illinois | Trade details: Raiders trade No. 23, 70 and 174 to the Commanders for No. 16 and 193
    17. Pittsburgh Steelers: Calijah Kancey, DL, Pitt
    18. Detroit Lions: Deonte Banks, CB, Maryland
    19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Darnell Wright, OT, Tennessee
    20. Seattle Seahawks: Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State
    21. Los Angeles Chargers: Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame
    22. Baltimore Ravens: Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College
    23. New Orleans Saints (from MIN via LV, WAS): Lukas Van Ness, edge, Iowa | Trade details: Saints trade No. 29 and 71 to the Commanders for No. 23
    24. Jacksonville Jaguars: Nolan Smith, edge, Georgia
    25. New York Giants: Drew Sanders, LB, Arkansas
    26. Dallas Cowboys: Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas
    27. Detroit Lions (from BUF): Darnell Washington, TE, Georgia | Trade details: Lions trade No. 48, 55, 183 and 194 to the Bills for 27 and 137
    28. Cincinnati Bengals: Dawand Jones, OT, Ohio State
    29. Washington Commanders (from SF via MIA, DEN, NO): O’Cyrus Torrence, G, Florida
    30. Philadelphia Eagles: Bryan Bresee, DT, Clemson
    31. Kansas City Chiefs: Jalin Hyatt, WR, Tennessee

    Beyond Round 1
    36. (Round 2) Los Angeles Rams: Emmanuel Forbes, CB, Mississippi State
    43. (Round 2) Cleveland Browns: Felix Anudike-Uzomah, DE, Kansas State
    48. (Round 2) Buffalo Bills (from DET): Jack Campbell, LB, Iowa
    51. (Round 2) Miami Dolphins: Steve Avila, G/C, TCU
    67. (Round 3) Denver Broncos (from IND): Luke Wypler, C, Ohio State
    99. (Round 3) San Francisco 49ers: Blake Freeland, OT, BYU

    As it stands after FA so far, I see Texans taking:-
    #2 Young/Stroud QB
    #12 Wilson/ Van Ness/Murphy ED
    #33 T. Simpson/D. Sanders LB
    #42 M. Schmitz/L. Wypler (W/Cleveland) C

    I still see them moving from 12 to 18-25 if picking up a 2nd...

    Between line and linebacker there will be someone there 10 spots back from 12...

    I don't see Addison on their board unless he's there at 33.

    He's more of a small slot guy which they have a possible solution there...

    They need a big #1 who can burn...

    If I may?
    Jalin Hyatt and Zay Flowers are both fast.
    Trey Palmer is another speedster but Flowers is shifty.

    I like flowers also. Throw him a 10 yd pass and he can take it to the house.

    That WR isn't in this draft.

    There will be 4/5 WR's in 2024 that are better than this years class.

    I would take a shot on Palmer in the 5th or 6th rd.

    I disagree, there isn't one that's likely an immediate impact...

    There are some 6'2" or taller deep threats in 3-5th round.

    They usually come with limited playing time or small schools.

    There's one out of Stanford and another out of Princeton I believe... probably more...

    I agree it is a lousy year for wr...
