The 2023 NFL Draft is complete.  Seven rounds, three days, numerous trades, two hundred and fifty six players chosen, and thirty-two teams with new players on their rosters.  In my Mock Draft, I attempted to predict the first round, and of course I got it mostly wrong.  It was fun to guess, but here’s how the first round really shook out:
