This year’s 2023 NFL Draft only has only one elite player and that player Bijan Robinson plays a position that teams don’t typically take high in the first round. However, it does offer good depth as 89 players have either first or second-day grades compared to just 77 prospects last year. 

Please note the grade by each player is where I would take them in the NFL Draft not where I project them to go.
