13. New York Jets: Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State
The New York Jets are still expected to bring in former NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers to play quarterback for them, at least for this season. Having already brought in two free agent wide receivers to complement 2022 Offensive Rookie of the Year Garrett Wilson, what they really need to do is make sure that they can protect him. Bringing in a technician like Paris Johnson Jr. at left tackle would allow a mauler like Mekhi Becton to move over to right tackle, protecting the blindside of Rodgers in 2023 and that of whoever ends up playing quarterback for the Jets beyond.
14. New England Patriots: Broderick Jones, OT, Georgia
The New England Patriots are likely moving on from former Georgia tackle Isaiah Wynn, so they go right back to the Bulldog well for a new fixture at left tackle. Broderick Jones is a beast of a human being, dominating with his size and power. Jones impressed with his athletic testing as well and has the experience playing left tackle in the SEC that teams will likely desire at the next level. The Patriots could end up going in a variety of directions, but with a top left tackle on the board, I think they have to pull the trigger.
15. Green Bay Packers: Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah
Throughout his Green Bay career, the Packers never really provided Aaron Rodgers with a top receiving threat in the draft. While many may think wide receiver regarding that conversation, tight end can be just as important and effective. The Packers need to do everything they can to ensure that Jordan Love will be successful this season and providing him with a dynamic target like Dalton Kincaid would certainly help. Kincaid is the best receiver of this tight end class and would immediately be a huge upgrade over Josiah Deguara who is currently slated to start for Green Bay in 2023.
16. Washington Commanders: Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State
Hearts are broken in Pittsburgh as they fall just one spot short of bringing home the son of former linebacker Joey Porter, but Washington would be ecstatic to bring in a long and physical corner like Joey Porter Jr. Porter Jr. is very physical, just as his dad was, but is also very athletic and has great ball skills. He would immediately be a starting outside corner for Washington, allowing Kendall Fuller to move into a more natural fit for him in the slot for Ron Rivera’s defense.
