It's three-round mock draft time. Yes, officially in NFL Draft month and with free agency into its third or fourth wave, we generally know what needs all clubs have to address in the draft, so let's dive deeper than normal.
The reigning Super Bowl champion Chiefs get aggressive in this mock draft and add to the defensive front, which is absolutely needed heading into another season in which Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes and Co. try to defend their title.
One more note: There will only be 31 first-round picks this year because the Dolphins were stripped of their selection due to tampering.
Let's get to the picks! And there are trades featured in all three rounds!

From Chicago Bears
Round 1 - Pick 1
Florida • 6'4" / 232 lbs
Riding this out for now. Richardson has the most upside in the class, and the Panthers have a veteran coaching staff to aid his development early on.
Round 1 - Pick 2
Bryce Young QB
Alabama • 5'10" / 204 lbs
The Texans upgrade the quarterback position in a big way with Young, who has all the improvisational brilliance to succeed in today's NFL.
Round 1 - Pick 3
Will Anderson Jr. EDGE
Alabama • 6'4" / 243 lbs
No trade back for the Cardinals; just a stud in Anderson to anchor the edge of the defensive line for the next decade.
Round 1 - Pick 4
C.J. Stroud QB
Ohio State • 6'3" / 218 lbs
The Colts are ecstatic to land Stroud without having to move any draft picks in the process.
Round 1 - Pick 5
Tyree Wilson EDGE
Texas Tech • 6'6" / 271 lbs
Wilson is too long and athletic for the Seahawks to pass on him here.
From Los Angeles Rams
Round 1 - Pick 6
Oregon • 6'2" / 201 lbs
Yes, the Lions added to the secondary in free agency, but that shouldn't stop them for grabbing Gonzalez here to play opposite Jeff Okudah.
Round 1 - Pick 7
Ohio State • 6'6" / 310 lbs
The Raiders have to add more pieces up front to block for Jimmy Garoppolo. Johnson has multiple seasons of clean film at Ohio State.
Round 1 - Pick 8
Lukas Van Ness EDGE
Iowa • 6'5" / 275 lbs
The Falcons have to add to the pass-rushing unit, and Van Ness has sky-high upside at his size with his athleticism.
Round 1 - Pick 9
Ohio State • 6'1" / 200 lbs
The Bears are all about maximizing the chances Justin Fields turns into a sure-fire franchise quarterback, so they pick his former Ohio State teammate at receiver.
Round 1 - Pick 10
Illinois • 6'0" / 180 lbs
Witherspoon is an ultra feisty outside corner who'll be the perfect mentee to Darius Slay and James Bradberry in Philadelphia. The Eagles like planning a year ahead with their draft picks.
Round 1 - Pick 11
Georgia • 6'5" / 311 lbs
Jones feels like a Titans type blocker. He's strong, athletic, and stars in the run game.
From Cleveland Browns
Round 1 - Pick 12
USC • 6'0" / 175 lbs
The Texans aren't concerned with Addison's lack of size or elite athletic profile. They love the idea of pairing him with Young in this youthful offense.
Mock Trade from New England Patriots
Round 1 - Pick 14
Will Levis QB
Kentucky • 6'4" / 229 lbs
The Buccaneers don't wait around for Levis as he gets this close to them. Serious competition for Kyle Trask and Baker Mayfield. The Patriots get No. 19 overall and a 2024 second-round pick to slide back in this swap.
Round 1 - Pick 15
TCU • 6'4" / 215 lbs
It would be so fitting for the Packers to finally pick a first-round receiver after trading Aaron Rodgers.
Round 1 - Pick 16
Deonte Banks CB
Maryland • 6'2" / 205 lbs
The Commanders have to get stickier in coverage on the perimeter. They'd get an awesomely athletic corner in Banks here.
Round 1 - Pick 17
Northwestern • 6'4" / 313 lbs
The Steelers go with the super-versatile Skoronski with some of the cleanest pass-protection film in the class.
Round 1 - Pick 18
Utah • 6'4" / 240 lbs
The Lions replace T. J. Hockenson with the sure-handed Dalton Kincaid, further helping Jared Goff.
Mock Trade from Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Round 1 - Pick 19
Clemson • 6'3" / 234 lbs
After the trade back, New England grabs Simpson. Belichick envisions him as another in-space weapon next to Kyle Dugger.
Round 1 - Pick 20
Jalen Carter DL
Georgia • 6'3" / 314 lbs
The Seahawks are intent on stopping Carter's slide here and are thrilled to come away with Wilson and the former Georgia star in the first round.
Round 1 - Pick 21
Texas • 5'11" / 215 lbs
How about Robinson in Los Angeles with Justin Herbert? While the Chargers may not be able to trade Austin Ekeler, this would be a plan-for-the-future pick at RB.
Round 1 - Pick 22
Jalin Hyatt WR
Tennessee • 6'0" / 185 lbs
Hyatt is a big-play specialist who'd help the Ravens become more vertical passing the football, which, in theory, should move a defender out of the box more frequently.
Round 1 - Pick 23
Nolan Smith EDGE
Georgia • 6'2" / 238 lbs
The Vikings jump at the opportunity to pick the ultra-athletic Smith as their long-term solution on the edge.
Round 1 - Pick 24
Mississippi State • 6'0" / 180 lbs
An uptick in takeaways in 2022 was low-key important to the Jaguars winning the division and a playoff game. Because of that, they lean toward Forbes here, one of the SEC's most dynamic playmakers at corner.
Mock Trade from New York Giants
Round 1 - Pick 25
Will McDonald IV EDGE
Iowa State • 6'4" / 245 lbs
Kansas City doesn't have a litany of holes, but outside pass-rusher is one of them. The Chiefs get aggressive and make sure the explosive and bendy McDonald is rushing on the same line as Chris Jones. In this trade, the Giants get the Chiefs' third-round pick (No. 95).
Round 1 - Pick 26
Alabama • 6'0" / 190 lbs
Branch can do anything you ask of him in the secondary. The Cowboys could improve in the slot and at safety.
Round 1 - Pick 27
Iowa • 6'5" / 249 lbs
Campbell is Tremaine Edmunds sized -- with shorter arms -- but better instincts. His size and awesome coverage abilities make him an intriguing prospect for the Bills.
Round 1 - Pick 28
Myles Murphy DL
Clemson • 6'5" / 275 lbs
The Bengals add more pass-rushing upside with Murphy, who has all the tools but has yet to play the best football of which he's capable.
From Denver Broncos
Round 1 - Pick 29
Zay Flowers WR
Boston College • 5'9" / 182 lbs
After the Carr signing in this mock scenario, the Saints have to add weaponry to the offense. They do that with the small but sensational Flowers.
Round 1 - Pick 30
Bryan Bresee DL
Clemson • 6'5" / 305 lbs
The Eagles reload along the defensive line -- as per usual -- with the big, long, and athletic Bresee.
Mock Trade from Kansas City Chiefs
Round 1 - Pick 31
Penn State • 6'2" / 194 lbs
The Giants are overjoyed to land the super-long Porter Jr. after the trade back.
