2023 NFL Draft order: Who is picking from No. 1-31

The 2023 NFL Draft order is set, and because the Miami Dolphins had to forfeit their pick for tampering, there are 31 first-round choices.

Come April 27, the football world will descend upon Kansas City for the NFL Draft. It’ll be a celebration for the world champions, and a time for the other 31 clubs to try their hands at getting good enough to take the hosts down in 2023.

With the season now over and the Chiefs crowned as Super Bowl LVII winners, here’s how the 2023 NFL Draft order looks:

It’ll be fascinating to see who moves around the board most. The Lions, Seahawks and Texans all have multiple first-round choices, giving them the ultimate freedom to either slide up or down the board. Then there’s the Browns, Broncos and Rams, who currently don’t have picks on the first night.

Of course, keep an eye on the top portion of the board. The Bears don’t need a quarterback and could trade out to someone such as the Colts, Panthers or Falcons, who all need to find long-term answers at the sport’s most important position. If Chicago moves back, it’ll get a haul which could set up the franchise for the next decade if played right.

Then there’s the other option of the Bears trading third-year quarterback Justin Fields to one of the above teams, while they stay at No. 1 overall and select Bryce Young out of Alabama to replace him. The options are all available to second-year general manager Ryan Poles, who is trying to complete remake the roster in the next few years.
