Big Names in New Places Aaron Rodgers: Traded to Jets Lamar Jackson: Traded to Falcons Derek Carr: Traded to Commanders

Trey Lance: Traded to Titans Sean Payton: Traded to Broncos Tom Brady: Signs with 49ers Jimmy Garoppolo: Signs with Raiders

1) Indianapolis Colts (From CHI): Bryce Young, QB, Alabama Trade: Indianapolis receives Pick 1, Chicago receives Picks 4, 35, 79, 2024 first-round pick, and 2024 second-round pick.

2) Houston Texans: C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State As DJ Khaled once said, “Congratulations, you played yourself.” The Texans played themselves out of the top QB in the class

, but C.J. Stroud isn’t just a consolation prize.

3) Arizona Cardinals: Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia The Cardinals are entering a pivotal offseason that will set their trajectory for years to come.

4) Chicago Bears (From IND): Will Anderson Jr., EDGE, Alabama Trading down is the best decision the Bears can make on draft night.

5) Seattle Seahawks (From DEN): Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson The Seahawks would love Carter or Anderson, but Myles Murphy is a freak of nature in his own right.

7) Las Vegas Raiders: Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State Derek Carr is on his way out, and in this 2023 NFL Mock Draft, Jimmy Garoppolo is on his way in.
