The ensuing weeks of mock drafts, speculations, and insider reports will officially come to a close as the 2023 NFL Draft takes place from Thursday, April 27 to Saturday, April 29. As the next generation of football stars await to hear their names, all eyes will be on the Carolina Panthers who hold the No. 1 overall selection.
This year’s group of quarterbacks continues to dominate the conversation around the top of the first round, with Bryce Young, C.J. Stroud, and Anthony Richardson drawing the interest of many teams drafting in the top five.
