2023 NFL Mock Draft: Eagles trade up for a stud defensive player

After their blockbuster move up the draft board the Panthers pick the safest and most polished quarterback of the bunch.

Stroud is the most accurate passer among the projected quartet of first-round QBs and has the size to set him apart from Bryce Young.

Stroud will be lacking weapons in Carolina after the Panthers included D.J. Moore in their trade up to No. 1. But either way,

 Stroud was going to have to get used to throwing to lesser talent after spending his college career targeting Garrett Wilson,

 Chris Olave, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, and Marvin Harrison Jr.

I wouldn’t put it past the Texans to pass on a QB with Caleb Williams and Drake Maye looming atop next year’s class and Houston being armed with another pair of first-rounders in 2024.

 However, Young is too good to pass up. The big question is how his slight frame will hold up at the next level,

Cue the Jonathan Gannon sound effects as the Cardinals nab Anderson,

who seems like a lock to be a perennial double-digit sack guy.

 He’s got special burst around the edge that will make life miserable for opposing quarterbacks,

 assuming they fix that horrendous turf in Arizona so he doesn’t slip on every play.
