25. Dallas Cowboys: Nolan Smith, EDGE, Georgia
The Dallas Cowboys did select Sam Williams in the second round, but who knows if that’ll work out with off the field history. They dive back into the well of pass rushers in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft, getting the number one recruit in 2019, Nolan Smith. His first step explosiveness, bend, and power could elevate him much higher by next year.
26. Seattle Seahawks (via DEN): Isaiah Foskey, EDGE, Notre Dame
Boye Mafe should help the Seahawks pass rush, but why not keep adding to it here? Isaiah Foskey has the twitch and length to be a disruptor on the edge.
27. Miami Dolphins (via SF): Jaelyn Duncan, OT, Maryland
Terron Armstead has the left side locked down, and now they have Van Pran from this mock, but there aren’t guarantees at right tackle. Jaelyn Duncan will likely get more hype as we get to the fall, but he has franchise tackle potential.
28. Detroit Lions (via LAR): Rakim Jarrett, WR, Maryland
Back-to-back picks for Maryland here, as the Detroit Lions can afford a luxury selection. Rakim Jarrett should take the Big Ten by storm in 2022, and he would be a phenomenal pairing with Jameson Williams.
29. Green Bay Packers: Brandon Joseph, S, Notre Dame
The Green Bay Packers did pick up the fifth-year option for Darnell Savage, but Adrian Amos could still be gone in 2023. It leaves an opening, and Brandon Joseph could fill that. Joseph has the ball skills and instincts to roam around deep.
30. Kansas City Chiefs: Jahmyr Gibbs, RB, Alabama
The Kansas City Chiefs can basically do whatever they want, so why not an uber-talented running back here in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft? Jahmyr Gibbs has wicked quick twitch, and can have an immediate impact as a pass catcher and with his burst once he gets into space.
31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Phil Jurkovec, QB, Boston College
If Tom Brady calls it a career after 2022, it’s hard to imagine Kyle Trask taking over that mantle. Phil Jurkovec has the size and arm strength to succeed in an offense that likes to take shots down the field.
32. Buffalo Bills: B.J. Ojulari, EDGE, LSU
The Buffalo Bills finally got their CB2, so it’s back to the defensive line here. B.J. Ojulari has an impressive set of moves as a pass rusher, and can dip and clear to win around the outside arc.
