2023 NFL draft order: Top 31 picks for the first round

The order for the top 31 picks in the first round of the 2023 NFL draft is set after Super Bowl LVII,

 with the Chicago Bears picking No. 1 and the Houston Texans picking No. 2. The Texans' dramatic Week 18 victory allowed the Bears to sneak into the top spot.

Will Chicago keep this pick or trade back? Will the Texans choose their signal-caller of the future with their selection?

 The Bears and the Texans are followed by the Arizona Cardinals at No. 3.

Several teams have the opportunity to make big moves, as there have been six trades involving first-round picks.

The Texans, Seattle Seahawks, Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles are in line to have two first-round selections.

 This year's Round 1 will have 31 picks as the Dolphins were stripped of their selection for tampering violations.

The Los Angeles Rams, New Orleans Saints, Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers also will not have a first-round selection.

 The Denver Broncos don't own their own first-round selection but will have one from a trade that sent outside linebacker,

 Bradley Chubb to the Dolphins in a deal that included the 49ers' 2023 first-round pick.

The 2023 NFL draft will take place at Union Station in Kansas City, Missouri, home of the Kansas City Chiefs,

with the first round slated for April 27. Rounds 2 and 3 will take place on April 28,

and Rounds 4 through 7 will be on April 29. The draft will be broadcast on ABC, ESPN and the ESPN App.
