2023 NFL Two-Round Mock Draft: Raiders find QB in Round 2, Lamar Jackson gets running mate in backfield


Quarterback-needy NFL teams will either have to be aggressive in pursuit of a rookie or risk the possibility of missing one entirely.

A second teams also trades up to secure one of the perceived top options. 

The draft order below is now the official order based on team records and tiebreakers. There are only 31 picks as a result of the Dolphins‘ pick being forfeited due to tampering violations. 

Without further ado, let’s kick this off!
