Lance Zierlein 2023 NFL mock draft 1.0: Buccaneers select Tom Brady's successor

In my first 2023 NFL mock draft, I am using team needs and relying a bit more heavily on my prospect grades and evaluations, to determine who lands where in Round 1.

 As we get closer to April, though, my mock drafts will have less to do with how I see these players,

 and more to do with what I think teams want to do with each pick.

The NFL announced in August that the Miami Dolphins will forfeit their 2023 first-round pick and 2024,

 third-round pick following an investigation into whether the team violated league policies pertaining to the integrity of the game.

The order for Picks 30-31 is now locked in following the conclusion of Super Bowl LVII.

The entire city of Houston rejoices as the franchise pairs the fan-favorite quarterback with the fan-favorite head coaching hire, DeMeco Ryans.
